Here are some of the clear stamp sets you can find in the shop. As you can see they all comes with some fun embellishments.


I have started coloring one of these beauties, her name is Team SpiritAs you may already know I love images with a lot of attitude like the steampunk- and gothic girls and the cool guys that KennyK have designed, but this cutie has really won my heart.

My card for today I made using the digi Football, one of KennyK´s cool guys.


I´ve colored him with my Distress Re-Inkers. The sentiment is from Magnolia and the design papers are AllStar from Prima. I´ve cut out the tickets and a banner from the design paper and used die cuts from Tim Holtz, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn. Also added cheese cloth, ribbons and glossy accent.


Have a nice day!

Black & White


Welcome

This is a card I´ve made for a challenge in an event in my hometown. The local scrapbooking shop Engströms Artstudio arrange this event two times a year and I had the opportunity to participate this time. We were 94 crafters making projects and inspiring each other last weekend. The shop were open with lots of fun stuff to get inspired by and the DT girls showed us news and different scrapbooking techniques. I have also signed up for a Copic coloring class later in October arranged by Engströms Artstudio, I thought I would give it a try.

Happy Everything

Hello everyone,

It´s time for a new challenge over at KennyKs Krafty Krew and I´ve made a Christmas card using gorgeous Bow (adult) to show you.

The challenge is
Anything Goes
 with the optional twist
Happy Everything



The card is made using dies from Tim Holtz and Magnolia. The sentiments in white on blue paper are stamps and I think they are from Panduro, but I´m not sure. They are embossed in white and cut out by hand. I´ve used white crackel paint on the trees, the snow flurries and the base. 
I´ve colored my image with Distress Re-inkers and embossed the Happy Christmas stamp from Crafty Individuals beside her and than used some white crackel paint again around the edges.

Our fantastic sponsor

Now it´s your turn to show us your best creations and any holiday occasion or cause for celebration would fit the twist. You must use a KennyK image but the twist is optional. The prizes are 3 digis of the random winner choice (5 if twist is included) and one digi each for Top 3 chosen by the design team. My teamies have lots of inspiration for you so welcome to KennyKs Krafty Krew and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by today

I was voted Pick of the Week in february this year and now the EDT voted me Pick of the Month for february which makes me a nominee for Pick of the Year - YAY. The competition is hard, there are 12 other nominees, all fabulous, but I´m so happy and honored just to be a nominee. The competition is decided by voting and you can vote for your favorite in the comment section at Rick St Dennis MFA if you like.

Handyman

Hi All
I hope you are having a crafty weekend!

Now I´m going to show you a favorite of mine, Handyman from KennyK. I don´t know how many cards I´ve made using him but I think he is the most frequent used one in my KennyK collection. This card is made for an electrician so I tried to find some electrician stuff to put on my card, like the white cables and the piece holding them together down to the left. 


As usual I´ve used a lot of dies from my collection and I think this time they are all from Tim Holtz except for one Cheery Lynn die. Around the image I´ve used to different colors of embossing powder. Crackel paint is also a frequent used favorite and this card is not an exception. The image is colored with Distress Re-inkers. 

Have a nice day!
Hugs Lisa

Happy Birthday Mr KennyK - Blog Hop

Happy Birthday Mr KennyK



I have used Buggin Drummer for my card. The image is colored with my Distress re-inkers. I´ve used glossy accent on his eye glasses and on the big drum. I just had to use a little "metal" on this card as well so the wings and the letters (cut out with Tim Holtz dies) are made of aluminum tape and than colored with black acrylic paint and Metallic Lustre from Deco Art in the color Gold. I´ve used an embossing plate from Sizzix to create the pattern. The papers are from K-Design. I´ve used dies from Tim Holtz, Cheery Lynn, Marianne Design and Magnolia. The star border and the music border are embossed with three different colors of embossing powder. On the red number 50 and the red "k" I´ve used crackel accent. In the black pocket (Tim Holtz die) at the back of my card I´ve put a hand written birthday greeting to Mr Kiernan as well as inside the card. I put an arrow there so he won´t miss it.

Halloween

Hi all and welcome to my blog
I hope you are well


I want to welcome SamraBarb and Janine who recently joined my blog. So nice to have you all here.

Today I´ll show you a Halloween card I´ve made for KennyKs Krafty Krew. I´ve used the adorable Trixxie Treat, isn´t she just lovely! This is such a fun theme I think and I had so much fun making this card. At first I was thinking of making a more colorful project with bright orange and purple papers, but than I found this paper stack Seasonal from Tim Holtz. These Halloween papers are mild in colors, almost "washed out" and I fell in love with them right away. I´ve tried to color Miss Trixxie Treat in the same colors as the papers.



The Challenge is
Anything goes
with the twist
Halloween

Our sponsor is

Prizes: The winner will get 3 KennyK digis of the Winner´s Choice, 5 if twist is used. Top 3, chosen by the Krew, will be rewarded with one (1) digi each. Remember you must use a KennyK digi to enter. You could find them here. We have lots of fabulous inspiration for you to see over at KennyKs Krafty Krew so check out what my team mates have made this time.

This is how I made my card
I´ve colored her with my Distress Re-inkers and I´ve cut out the hat and the pumpkin for a 3D look. The papers are from Tim Holtz stack Seasonal. The spider web and the flower are made with aluminum tape and cut out with a Cheery Lynn die and a Tim Holtz die and then I´ve used black acrylic paint and some Metallic Lustre in Copper from Deco Art to get the right look. The house, the bats, the number 31 and the leaves are cut out with Tim Holtz dies. The house is cut out in black cardstock and then I´ve used some Metallic Lustre Copper again. The tags are cut out with a Magnolia die and the sentiments are from Tim Holtz. I´ve used black embossing puffs around the paper edges and also crackel paint and glossy accents on some details. The spiders are made with glue from a hot glue gun and metal wire and sprayed with black paint. To get the hairy legs I´ve glued model train gras on the metal wire before I sprayed it with black paint. 


When I was done with them I could almost not touch them because they looked so real. They are scary...if you are afraid of spiders like I am...lol


I will try my luck and enter this card to the following challenges
Create and Inspire (Challenge 28)
Simon Says Stamp Blog (Anything Goes)
Crafting from the Heart (Challenge 75)

Thanks for stopping by today
and
have a nice day!
