KennyK Danger Dad

Hello!

It's already a week in to May and I just wonder where did April go. 
A bit chilly where I live though.

For todays make I've colored Danger Dad from KennyK Stamps. 
He is perfect to use for Fathers Day projects and 
Birthday cards for the men in our lives. 
He is the progressive freebie at our May challenge 
at Club KennyK Facebook 


The challenge is Anything Goes.
You can enter with just a colored image if you don't want to make a full project, you just need to use a KennyK digi or stamp. 
There are prizes to win for best coloring and best project 
and we also have at least one random prize. 
All prizes are KennyK digis of choice. 
Remember to watermark your creation across the image 
as per Terms of Use.

You can also get Danger Dad digi at the shop 
www.kennykstamps.com
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!
Hugs, Lisa

KennyK Dowager Countess

Hello!

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!

Celebrating my KennyK DT friend, Therese, today

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)

Smoking Hot from Illustrations by T

Hello!

I just LOVE these Slinky Tart images. 
They are made by Illustrations by T and you can find her work at


Here is a card made using Smoking Hot
you can find her at the Slinky Tart link above.


Have used foil for some parts so had a bit of trouble at first taking a decent pic of this card.
The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils on Canson Mi Teintes paper. Dies used are from Cheery Lynn and Tim Holtz. 

The brick wall part beside the image on the left hand side is chipboard colored with Finnabair Art Alchemy acrylic paint. I bought the chipboard at the local craft shop Angstroms Artstudio. I buy a lot of my crafting supplies at this place and if Katarina doesn't have the piece I need she often orders it for me so she is really awesome.

Paper from Ella&Viv/Reminisce and also black cardstock. A little bit of a small chain from the hardware store and also staples are used.



Thanks for looking
Have a wonderful day

Happy Birthday, Maryam!

Hello crafters!
Welcome all

Todays make is a Birthday card for my friend and colleague Maryam 
using the lovely Tilda with Love Cake from www.magnolia.nu. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARYAM!
Wish you a wonderful day!

 I've colored Tilda with Prismacolor pencils
on Canson Mi-Teintes paper

The big flower is made using a die from Magnolia, 
Coredination cardstock, white gesso and a white pearl. 
The center holding the pearl is also made with a die 
but don't know what brand. 


The tickets are stamps from I think Whimsey, but I'm not sure. 
I've had them for many years. They are embossed and cut out.

I've used a lot of Magnolia Doo-Hickey dies including the base die but the small flowers and the mesh border are from Cheery Lynn, the big leaves from Prima, butterflies from Memory Box and the numbers from Tim Holtz.

Papers from Magnolia and cardstock from Coredinations. 
Seam binding, doilies and pearls from stash.


Have a wonderful day and thanks for looking
Hugs, Lisa
