KennyK Santa Baby

Hello Crafters!

Here she is again - Santa Baby from www.kennykstamps.com. This is a inspiration card for Club KennyK, our Facebook page for KennyK fans. Santa Baby is one of three new digis from KennyK Stamps released today and we also have a new challenge starting today with the theme Die Cuts (suits me perfectly, don´t you think? - LOL). The other new images released today are "Santa Christmas Dance" and "Elfie Selfie". All the new digis are totally awesome. 

If maybe you red my post earlier today you have seen my black and metal version using this adorable image. For this card I have gone fore a more cute look. The black cardstock is very smooth and shiny even if it doesn´t show in the picture, it almost looks like the surface of a black piano. She is colored with Polychromos pencils and I´ve also used platinum Stickles. For the edges I´ve used black embossing powder.

I´ve used dies from Tim Holtz; snow flurries, pediments, the smaller tags and the big snowflake at the upper left hand side.

I use it a lot but I can never remember from where the Star border die comes, sorry. The trees and the pine branches are made with Magnolia Doo-Hickey dies. The torn notebook and the tag at the top are made with Marianne Design dies.

The tickets are made with stamps from a clearstamp set with Christmas theme. I don´t know the brand, it could be from Swedish Panduro, but I´m not sure. They are embossed and fussy cut. Design papers from stash.

Have a great day!
Hugs, Lisa

New release and new challenge at Club KennyK - Santa Baby

Hello and Welcome!

I have exciting news from www.kennykstamps.com to show you. Three new and totally awesome Christmas digis are released today.

Of course we also have a new challenge at Club KennyK starting today and the theme is Die cuts. The challenge runs for two weeks. You need to use a KennyK digi or clearstamp and you can enter a Anything Goes project and still be eligible for a prize but to get the chance to win 5 digis of choice you need to follow the theme. 

For my inspiration card I´ve used the adorable Santa Baby, you can find her in the SHOP. I've made two cards with this sweetie. The other card I´m posting later today.

Santa Baby is colored with Polychromos pencils and fussy cut. I´ve also used Stickles in silver. I´ve used dies from Tim Holtz; globe, townscape, tick-tock and mini pocket-watch. 

The mini picture wheel, the tassel and the Merry Xmas tag are made with Magnolia Doo-Hickey dies. The fire hydrant and the torn notebook are made with Cheery Lynn dies. The base is made with a GoKreate die. Design paper and black cardstock from stash.

I´ve used aluminum tape and black acrylic paint for the metal looking details. I use it on cardstock before cutting and then I cover the whole surface with acrylic paint and after drying I use a rag to polish the surface, leaving paint here and there to get the right look.


Have a lovely day
Hugs, Lisa

Guest Designer at Crafty Boots Challenges using Jayne Jettpack

Hello Crafters!

A new challenge is up and running at Crafty Boots Challenges and I´m so delighted to be their guest designer this week. The theme is 'use a stamp'. It could be a digital stamp or a rubber/polymer stamp. The Design Team have made lovely projects so pop over and have a look.

For my project I´ve used a stamp from KennyK, her name is Jayne Jettpack and is one of my absolute favourites. I´ve colored her with my Polychromos pencils and used design papers from BoBunny.

The arrows, the clock and the clipboard top are die cuts from Tim Holtz dies. For the mini picture wheel I´ve used a die from Magnolia and for the smaller tags I´ve used a Marianne Design die. The big tag is from a Tim Holtz die. The splotches around the image I´ve made with stamps from Prima and the corner on the right hand side of the image is made with two Spellbinder rectangular dies to get a frame, then cut to fit the corner and then embossed in orange and yellow. Sentiment from Tim Holtz, embossed in orange.


Thank you so much 
Crafty Boots Challenge
for the opportunity to be your GD this week it was a pleasure

Thank you for visiting
Have a wonderful day

KennyK Birthday Blog Hop for Regan


It´s the amazing Regan´s birthday today. She is our DT Co-ordinator, Facebook Administrator and a very talented crafter at Club KennyK and we thought we´d surprise her with a Birthday Blog Hop!

Happy Birthday Regan!!! 

Hope you're having a wonderful birthday! 
and hope you get some of those gorgeous 
LaLaLand dies that you want ;)

KennyK DT and GDT have got together to create this hop. It's a bit like a game of Pass the Parcel - you hop from one stop to the next and find a little bit of birthday love on each blog. It's a present for Regan, but we hope you'll all join in the fun too. 

Leave a comment on each blog as you Hop and then leave a message for Regan in the comments on the KennyK Stamps Blog. We want to surprise her with lots of birthday love.  

We'll ask Regan to choose her favourite comment from those left on the KennyK Stamps Blog to receive a prize. Make sure you've left a comment on all the stops on the hop too. Closing date is Saturday 13th Aug at midnight EST.

Here is the card I´ve made for her

I wanted to use purple for her card as I think it´s Regans favorite color and I knew right away what image to use and that is the super cool and super gorgeous Lady Raven designed by KennyK. If I'm not mistaken I think she is one of Regans favorite KennyK images and because Lady Raven is my favorite for sure, of all my images, it was an easy choice. I totally love Lady Raven and if you want to you can find her at www.kennykstamps.com. She is colored with Polychromos pencils and fussy cut. 

You should have hopped here from Lina

Your next stop on the Hop is at Andy

Blog Hop Order:

Lisa that´s me :)

The purple design paper is from Maja Design. I´ve used my aluminum tape again (a favorite) together with black acrylic paint and cut out the wings and the spider web with Cheery Lynn dies. The square behind the Birthday background stamp is made in the same way with the aluminum tape using a Spellbinder die and also a Tim Holtz embossing plate.

I don´t know the brand of the background birthday stamp, but it is embossed in white on black coredination cardstock with white core. The star edge die I´ve used is from Tim Holtz as also the big picture wheel (you can see a tiny little bit of it at the upper left corner). Also the tags and the filmstrip are made with Tim Holtz dies. 

The mini picture wheel is cut out with a Magnolia die and the torn notebook with a Marianne Design die. The gears are made with a Memory Box die and the mini clock with a Technique Tuesday die. For the edges of the design paper I´ve used black soot Distress Ink and also silver embossing powder. The black paper is coredination cardstock with white core. Charm, safety pin and black tulle from stash. Metal corner from Prima.


Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Lisa

A cute lion and a new challenge at Club KennyK

Hello there! 

Time again for a new challenge at our Facebook group Club KennyK and my card today is made using Cute Lion. You can find him HERE. It´s one of the freebies this month and the other one is the super cool Rock Chick. You can get them by signing up for the KennyK Newsletter and by joining our Facebook club, Club KennyK. There is always a freebie in the newsletter every month and at the Club there is either a freebie or a discounted image each month. To enter this challenge you need to use one of these freebies and you can enter with a full project or with just a colored image. 

I´ve colored this cutie with Polychromos pencils and given him a bow tie. I think he looks good in purple.

I think he´s been partying all night in the big city, lol. The fishes and milk bottles are made using stamps and dies from Tim Holtz. The sentiment 'it´s a party' is a stamp from Tim Holtz, embossed in black. The paws, the bones and the burlap are made using Cheery Lynn dies. The city skyline and the pipe are made using Memory Box dies, the mini picture wheel a Magnolia die and the torn notebook a Mariann Design die. The tag and the stars are die cuts from a Tim Holtz dies. I´ve used a square base made from a Spellbinder die. The zebra design paper is from Magnolia and the white paper is cardstock.

Thanks for visiting
Have a great day
