How cute is this stamp? I used Bubble Bath for this card, and it was so fun to play with! I used a Sakura stardust pen on the metal of the bucket to make it look a little shiny, and then I couldn't resist using some stickles on the bubbles to make them a little sparkly, too!
You can find this stamp and many others in the QKR Stampede store. There are lots of cute and fun stamps there, truly something for everyone. Go have a look!

I just love the Cow stuck on the moon. Such a cute stamp which can be used for most events, like birthdays, babies or even encouragement cards. I stamped her on white cardstock and watercolored the image, cut it close and popped it on a starry background and used the Eleanor Roosevelt quote. I also used tiny yellow star brads on the corner of the starry paper.
This rose stamp is going to be one of my favorites. I stamped it on white cardstock and watercolored the image. The leaves I cut and popped both the rose and the leaves at the bottom of the rose. My sister had given me a tissue box that was silver lined so I used it for the center of the white scallop circle, all on pink polka dot paper, matted on black card stock and then white
cardstock. I used a little strip of black scallop just to finish it off.
The first one I used this cute stamp swimming kitty.

I just love these ant stamps. There is a whole bunch of cute ant images in the QKR Store. If you haven't stumbled upon them yet...be sure to check them out HERE. I think they are perfect for summer. I used the ant roasting marshmallows image for this card. I colored him with colored pencils and trimmed him...which wasn't easy...lol. He is very detailed. I added some liquid applique to the marshmallows to make them look puffy and toasted. For the base of the card I used white CS, and layered the blue PP onto that. I thought it looked like a starry sky. I tore the edge of the green CS, and did some ink distressing to it. The camper I cut using my Cricut, and added some striped PP to the windows to look like curtains. Did you ever notice camper curtains always look retro? LOL! I also added a little moon. Well, that is all I have for you today. I hope you take the time to check out some of the other cute ant images in the QKR Stampede store, as well as the many other cute and quirky images.

Hi everyone, this is Laralee and I cannot believe that it has been 2 weeks already.
Next week is the 1st of July already, where has the year gone?
Well I made this card for a friend that was just saying that she felt like a prisoner in her own house, and I thought that she needed a pick me up.
Both the saying and the image are from QKR Rubber Stampede and I just had to have them.
I used white card stock to stamp them and then colored them with my copics. I wanted to used somewhat muted colors......and I am hoping that achieved a good look.
The background paper is some of my stash that I have had forever, and seeing how my wonderful husband has put me on a paper ban until I use up some of what I have (besides I am really trying to go green) I found this paper and loved it.
Hope that everyone has a great day (maybe even dry here) and if it is wet in your part of the country.......stay in and CREATE.

This Raspberry Label stamp from QKR Stampede is just gorgeous. I combined this with the Thank You stamp (also from QKR Stampede) and Card Patterns Sketch 68 to create this quick card. There are times when you just need a quick thank you card, and this one certainly fit the bill. All I had to do was color in the leaves and berries and then cut it out (less than 15 minutes). The sketch from Card Patterns was perfect for this stamp. I kept the layers minimal and I only used a simple white ribbon for an embellishment so the raspberry label would stand out.
If you type in "label" in the search box on QKR Stampede, you will see all kinds of gorgeous label stamps. Roses, mason jars, raspberries, and apple blossoms adorn different label shapes. I need to collect all of these!
Did you know that QKR Stampede offers all their stamps as digital images as well as rubber?? This is an exciting new development! Now you can have QKR Stampede digital images within minutes of ordering if you are impatient like me. :-) Happy Shopping!

I am posting for QKR Rubber Stampede today and boy am I excited. Number 1 I love playing with their rubber stamps and secondly WE ARE HAVING A BLOG HOP THIS WEEKEND!!
Isn't that exciting. We need everyone to come and see what the DT has been doing.
OK OK OK now for my post.
I used my teepee stamp and stamped it out using StazOn black ink, I used white cardstock )because I am old fashioned and white goes with anything) then I used a patterned paper from SEI that I had and used my CM wave cutting board. Then I colored the teepee with my copics (I know what a shock). Then I wanted to do something inside and I found this digi from Stamp-N-Doodle that just screamed at me that it would match. I loved the way that this card has turned out. I was going to do it as a birthday card, but I am not sure yet and it is so versitile that I can use it for about anything.
Well that is all for me TODAY, just wait until this weekend.
Sorry I didn't show up on the Saturday I was supposed to, I misunderstood and thought it was the following Saturday. Oh well..... The card didn't turn out good anyhow. It's 2:00 AM now, and I am sorta lost on words right now, so I will see you Friday on our blog hop, hopefully your all as excited about it as I am.

For this card, I've used the stamp Napping Bear. It was really easy to colour in and then embellish. There are tons of awesome stamps like this in the store. Go check it out!

Have you seen this Love Faith Hope set over in the QKR Stampede store? I had to have this as soon as I saw it, and here are some quick and simple cards using each of the four words.
I love seeing sets of cards in different colors, and that is what I've done here. I chose to use some bold summery colors - Olive, Pumpkin, Teal, and Riding Hood Red from Stampin Up. The butterfly is die cut and then dry embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I stamped each word and then punched it out with an oval punch and matted them with a scallop oval punch.
Instead of using pearls or bling for the butterfly bodies, I decided to go bold and chunky with large clear buttons. I tied them with some tiny white ribbon (1/8") and adhered them with glue dots.
I hope you head over to QKR Stampede to see all the great stamps they have in their store. It's so much fun to browse through all the different categories. :-)
