QKR Stampede Blog Hop

I hope you have been enjoying the Hop! I know I have thoroughly enjoyed making projects for this Hop, as well as looking at and admiring all of the beautiful work that has been posted by each of the Design Team Members.

Didn't Laralee have some really cute projects? How cute is that bear with the fish? (He's on my wish list!) If you did not visit Laralee's Blog before coming here, go back--you missed a stop. And if you didn't start the Hop at the QKR Stampede Blog, go there now, read the details about the Hop, then go to the first linked blog. Each blog stop will, in turn, direct you to the next blog in the Hop. This will keep you on the right path so that you visit each Design Team Member's blog. If you leave a comment at each blog, you will be eligible to win a prize--one lucky person will be randomly chosen (be sure to check back at the QKR Blog to find out if you won!). Now that we know you are at the right place, here are a few cards:

This first card is a clean and simple card that was created using the In the Rain and Mama Said stamps by QKR Stampede. If you have been following my blog, you know that I have been having a lot of fun with these stamps. This card has a little bit of a twist.  The Spots and Dots embossing folder was used for the backdrop of the card, representing rain. The image was stamped and watercolored then cut out with a Nestability oval die and layered onto card stock cut with a Nestability scallop oval die. A single piece of ribbon was added for additional color.


Did you notice the little twist? Yes? No? Not sure? He forgot his umbrella! I can't tell you how many times I've done that, so I just HAD to do a card depicting "one of those days"!

This next card uses the Floating Away stamp. I have had a lot of fun creating cards with this stamp, also. For this card, the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder was used to represent the wind that is keeping this little guy aloft.  And by the look of those ribbons, there's quite a breeze blowing!


And finally, I have been wanting to make a step card for a while and decided to take the plunge today. This card uses the Mama Said stamp. Usually, this saying is associated with "negative" happenings in daily life. I decided to take a more positive spin. We've all heard the saying, ". . . never promised a rose garden . . ."; well, I was never not promised a rose garden. So, with that in mind, here is my positive spin:



Granted, these aren't roses, but what a beautiful bunch of flowers! A side view (so you can see the steps):


And finally, a close-up view so you can see the ribbon -- the ribbon on this card was used to create the leaves of the flowers.


Thanks for participating in the Blog Hop. Make sure you leave a comment before heading to the last stop. Remember, you have to leave a comment at each Design Team Member's blog in order to be eligible for the prize! Comment made? Great!! You should now head over to the final stop on this Hop:


and see what Chris has in store for you. Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT day!!
