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!

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

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.

Seam binding, doilies and pearls from stash.


Have a wonderful day and thanks for looking

Happy Birthday, Nick!

Hello and welcome!

This card is for my friend Nick. She is celebrating her 40th Birthday today and as she works as a teacher I couldn't resist using Sexy Teacher from www.kennykstamps.com for her card. 
Nick is also my teamie at Club KennyK and you can find her blog here if you like to wish her a Happy Birthday and check out her fantastic makes

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NICK!
Wishing you a wonderful day


The pink paper is white cardstock sprayed with Dylusions Ink spray bubblegum pink. For one of the backing papers I covered a thicker paper with white gesso and Dylusions Ink spray bubblegum pink and then black gesso. I then treated it with sandpaper to make it look distressed. You can maybe see parts of it at the bottom of my card. The teal colored paper is cardstock and the '#happybirtday' sentiment a stamp from Tim Holtz, embossed in black.



The black paper that is suppose to look like the black board we had when I went to school (many years ago, haha), is black cardstock with black gesso treated with sandpaper.

Image Sexy Teacher from www.kennykstamps.com colored with Prismacolor pencils and cut out with a Nellie Snellen tag die and the stamp I used around the images is from Carabelle stamped with distress ink picked raspberry



I bought some black pencils at the local bookstore to match the school theme and the spiral notebook is a stamp from Deep Red, embossed in black and cut out. The letters and numbers are both made with TH dies. The pink corner is made with a Crealies die and the circle mesh with a Kaiserkraft die.



The ruler is made with a stamp I bought in Las Vegas last year (sorry, don't remember what brand), embossed in black. The torn notebook and the picture wheel dies are from TH. The tickets are made with stamps from  Hero Arts and I stamped '40' from a numerical wooden stamp set that my sister in law bought for me at the Craft Barn in UK (I think) many years ago.
