QKR Stampede June Blog Hop

Hello there hoppers! Welcome to our June Design Team Blog hop! If you arrived here from Barb's Blog then you are right on track...if you started here, please hop on back to the QKR Stampede Blog, and start from the top...trust me you won't want to miss any of the great projects the DT had made for you to see. A few things to remember, if at any point during the hop you get "lost", just head on back to the QKR Blog and see where you left off. Hopefully we have gotten any kinks worked out for you, but you never know what the Internet is going to do...lol.
Well, as you have already seen, our theme this month is Picnic/Patriotic Cards or projects. Haven't the projects so far been great? The DT ladies are all so talented! I have made a 4th of July card for you today. Although I have never sent a 4th of July card, I figure it would be fun...lol. Here is what I came up with.
Aren't these ants so cute???!!! I used two different ant stamps for this card. There are a lot of cute little ant stamps in the QKR Store too. As soon as I saw these 2 stamps, this idea came to my head. I stamped the images and colored them with watercolor crayons. I then trimmed them down...which was very detailed cutting...ha ha. I used a white CS base, and layered a piece of light blue to be the sky. Then I used some shredder scissors to make grass. I bought these scissors from AVON a while back and have never used them...but I bought them thinking they would make great grass. Next I layered the first ant (Match Stick) on the front of the grass. Then I put the other ant image (Fire Cracker) behind the grass...so he looks like he is walking away. I added a little sponged sun to the corner. I punched out the conversation balloons, and hand wrote on them. I thought what they are saying was funny...lol. The firecrackers remind me of 4th of July. We hear them going off all the time during the week of the 4th..and then some...ha ha. I figure ants are always assumed picnic guests too. The little ant brads I picked up the other day at my LSS. Here is the inside of the card.Well that is all from me today. I will send you off to your next stop on the hop now. Please don't forget to leave comments on each DT Ladies Blog also. We love comments & if you leave comments on all our blogs as well as the DT Blog there is an awesome prize! All details to win the prize can be found on the QKR Stampede Blog!
