KennyK Stamps closing


So, so sad to see KennyK Stamps closing it's doors at the end of this month. Elena and Kenny have expand their business with KennyK Illustrations and they have no time left to keep KennyK Stamps going. I'm happy for them that their business is going so well and I wish them all the best and good luck in the future, but for me personally and for all KennyK fans out there closing KennyK Stamps is incredible sad. I've loved my job as a DT for them and I will miss it so very much. I will also miss my friends in the design team, it's been the best team ever. I know I will stay in contact with many of you after this but it's sad to not be a team any more. So to Elena, Regan, Lucy and all the lovely ladies in the design team, past and present, and guest designers - Big Hugs to all of you. It's been an honor and a pleasure to work with you.

This is my goodby card to Elena and Kenny and KennyK Stamps. I have colored ElenaK and Buggin Drummer using Prismacolor pencils and went for a rocking, all American style card using a design paper with the American flag from Pebbels and lots of star dies.

Rock On Elena and Kenny!!!

KennyK Stamps are having a closeout sale and at Club KennyK Facebook we have a goodby party, please join us if you can

Thanks for stopping byHugs, Lisa

Wedding card using Wedding Dance from KennyK Stamps

Hope you are well

Today I have a Wedding card to show you. I made it for my friend Anne-Marie to give to her daughter and future son in law on their Wedding day. Anne-Marie has chosen the image Wedding Dance from KennyK Stamps as the couple met through dancing. You can find the image HERE

Her daughter is very talented, she makes all clothes for her family, even underwear, so of course she has made her own Wedding dress.  She has also made the Wedding bouquet, all in fabric. I saw a pic of the bouquet and it's absolutely stunning. I couldn't tell it was made of fabric it look so real. Anne-Marie has promised to show me some more pics from the Wedding later and I can't wait to see them.

So the theme for the Wedding card is sewing. An unconventional theme for a Wedding card maybe, but lots of fun for me to work with.

 I used all sewing related dies and decorations I could find in my stash. The big scissor and thread rolls on the side is an edge die from Tim Holtz, the small scissors I think are from Marianne Design. The sentiment at the bottom is from Tim Holtz 

The zipper is made with a die from I think Marianne Design. The botton border is made with a Memory Box die and the small heart is made with a Marianne Design die. I used some embossing powder on both the heart and the buttons. 

I bought a set of bobbins at Hobby Lobby, USA, last year just to use as decorations for my cards and canvases as I love metal decorations 

The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and the love stamp behind the couple is from Magnolia. I have also used my sewing machine again as you can see.

The big tag at the top and all the big hearts are made with Tim Holtz dies. The small picture wheel is made with a Magnolia die. The tickets are from a sewing themed stamp set from Tim Holtz. Design paper with sewing theme from stash

The wooden thread rolls are colored with metallic acrylic paint from Finnabair

The big zipper is from a local store and the couples names are made with a Tim Holtz die, cardstock and embossing powder

The back side of the card. 
'Love' is made with a die but don't know what brand (I bought it at either Hobby Lobby or Michaels, USA) and 'forever' with a Tim Holtz die. If I remember correctly the small Wedding couple is a stamp from Kreativa Ting in Västerås, Sweden, they design their own rubber stamps

A bit chilly where I live though.

Birthday cards for the men in our lives. 
He is the progressive freebie at our May challenge

Here is my card and the DT theme is masculine

He is colored with Prismacolor pencils. Lots of layers on my card, as usual. Dies used are from Cheery Lynn, Mariann Design, Spellbinder and Tim Holtz. On some details I've used texture paste and metallic wax, both from Prima/Finnabair

I made a little pocket to fit a tag 
and used a digi sentiment from KennyK Stamps.
Metal wire on the tag.
Love the new gear dies from Tim Holtz, 
you can see some of them at the foreground in this pic

All the black papers are black cardstock with black gesso on. I like the matte finish very much. As you can see I've put some chicken wire on to. For the barb wire (die from Cheery Lynn) I used aluminum tape on cardstock and black gesso. 
Orange papers are Coredination cardstock.

Have a great day!

The sentiment is from Tim Holtz and design papers from Panduro.

KennyK Dowager Countess


Our March challenge at Club KennyK Facebook is up and running and the theme is always Anything Goes. You need to use a KennyK stamp or digi though. If you enter our challenge you will be eligible for this months freebie which is Dowager Countess.

I think KennyK had the British TV serie Downtown Abbey in mind when designing this lovely lady and there is also a Jolly Chap and a Valet digi following the same theme. 
You can find them all at www.kennykstamps.com 

 Here is my inspiration card for the challenge using Dowager Countess and the DT theme 'spring flowers'
(the theme is just for us in the DT)

In Sweden, early in the spring, we have small yellow flowers called Tussilago (real name is Hästhov, I think, but we call them Tussilago) and they are very much spring for me. 
The flowers on my card does not look at all like Tussilagos except for being small and yellow and the rest of the card has not so much spring feeling over it, but that is my take on the theme. 

The image is Dowager Countess from www.kennykstamps.com 
colored using Prismacolor pencils.

Dies used are from Spellbinder, Cheery Lynn, Tim Holtz, Magnolia and Marianne Design. I used coredination cardstock in black and two different yellow ones. The flowers are made with a Cheery Lynn die and coredination cardstock, white gesso and small pearls.

I've made a frame using coredination cardstock in black with kraft core and Spellbinder square dies. Design papers from Panduro (a Swedish craft store) but inside the frame I've colored the paper with distress oxide and stamped randomly with a background stamp from Crafters Individual and used a stencil and grit paste from Tim Holtz to get the numbers. 

The buildings are from my new set of dies from Tim Holtz, the round London ticket is a stamp but don't know what brand. I've had it for years. It's embossed and cut out. The die used at the top inside the frame is from I think Memory Box.

The London ticket is from a really nice Tim Holtz stamp set with London theme, embossed on coredination cardstock and cut out. The stars are made with a stamp from another Tim Holtz stamp set, embossed.

Thanks for looking!
Wish you a wonderful day!
Hugs, Lisa

Happy Birthday, Therese!


Celebrating my KennyK DT friend, Therese, today 
with a Birthday card.

Wish you a wonderful day!

I've colored a true favorite of mine. Her name is Brooklyn Babe and she was my very first KennyK stamp. I've had her for years, I totally love her and I so enjoyed coloring her again. 
You can find her as a digi HERE

I've built this card up with layers using a GoKreate die as a base. Other dies used are from Cheery Lynn (the wing), Magnolia (tag at the top and mini picture wheel), Tim Holtz (numbers, banner and mini clipboard top), Marianne Design (star border), Crealies (brick wall) Technique Tuesday (frame), Lawn Fawn (congrats) and Kaiserkraft (round mesh)

She's colored with Prismacolor pencils 

Design papers from K Designs, cardstock in grey and dark purple. White corrugated cardstock and white ribbons both colored with distress ink seedless preserves and black sooth. 

Have a wonderful day
Hugs, Lisa
