KennyK Sophisticated Gentleman

Hello!
Hope you are well.

For todays make I've used Sophisticated Gentleman from www.kennykstamps


I printed him out on photo paper, cropped him and instead of coloring him the way I usually do I used my blending tool and Distress Ink walnut stain, vintage photo and black soot around the edges and a bit on top. I then printed him out again and colored just his face with my Prisma pencils and used a 3D tape to glue it on to the photo. 


Then I used The Distress Collage Medium Vintage on top. It makes it look almost like an old photo.


  The bow tie is made with a die but I don't remember what brand.


I've used a lot of black gesso both for backing papers and for the metal decorations. For the rusty looking papers and tags I've used kraft paper and acrylic paints from Deco Art and Distress Ink black soot.


The metal decorations are from Tim Holtz, Finnabair and stash



The faucet knob is from Tim Holtz and a favorite of mine. The star is from Finnabair, love these stars. Both colored with black gesso.



The rulers I've cut out from a Tim Holtz design paper. The tags are made with dies from TH and as you can see I've used my sewing machine (that doesn't happen very often, lol).



The sentiments 'tell your story' and '#lucky' are from TH, embossed in the color frayed burlap from TH/Ranger and with some black soot Distress ink on top.



The small frame on the bottom is chipboard from Tando Creative/Andy Skinner Industrial Elements and colored using Deco Art acrylic paint in the colors quinacridone gold and raw umber and Distress Ink black soot. The screws on top of it are metal decorations from Finnabair.

Birthday Card using KennyK image Sexy Teacher

Hello and thank you for stopping by. My card today I've made for a friend of a friend. Her name is Anna and she is from Austria. I've met her and her husband a few times. They are both wonderful so I was delighted when my friend Gerd asked me to make a card for Annas Birthday. I decided to go for a teacher theme as Anna worked as a teacher before retiring. I've colored the digi Sexy Teacher from www.kennykstamps.com and made this card:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Anna! 
Hope you have a wonderful day 

Papers from Maja Design and Core'dinations. 
I've also used kraft and Canson pastell paper for some details.

The flower is made with a Magnolia Doo-Hickey die and a Tim Holtz die. Beneath the flower I have a star from a Cheery Lynn die and and the leaves are made with dies from Prima and Magnolia. The white stars on the side are made with a Memory Box die.

Star border, numbers, big letters, arrows and the mini clipboard top are made with TH dies. The torn paper with a Marianne Design die and hollow stars with a Spellbinder die.


The image is Sexy Teacher from www.kennykstamps.com and I've colored her with Prismacolor pencils on Canson Pastell paper Mi-Teintes

Album card using KennyK Retro Selfie


Hello. Today we are celebrating the wonderful Elena of KennyK Stamps. It's her Birthday today and all the DT's and GDT's have got together to surprise her and make her day special. We are all posting our Elena Birthday projects at Club KennyK Facebook during the day so welcome to have a look.

My project is an album card in black and white using the lovely Retro Selfie from www.kennykstamps.com. I want it to be a surprise for Elena so I'm not going to reveal here and now what's inside the album, sorry. Just in case she visit my blog. I've sent the album card to her but I don't think it has arrived yet.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ELENA!
Have a wonderful day!


I cropped Retro Selfie and colored her with my Prismacolor pencils using only french grey and black and with a touch of eggshell on her cheeks. 



I colored an extra pair of her arms, her scarf and the camera to cut out for a 3D effect.




I used dies from Sizzix and Tim Holtz only. Black and white cardstock and a small amount of aluminum tape for the camera where used. The sentiment is a metal decoration from Prima.



Here is another album card, but without decorations, made in a similar way. Just so you get a feeling of what I've made for her.



This cool badge is made by our wonderful DT 
Nicola Gold for this special day.
Thanks Nicola!

Thank you for stopping by
have great day

Hugs, Lisa

Christening card using Magnolia stamp

Hello crafters! 

Today I'm showing a Christening card made last spring. My friend Kristina wanted a card for her grand daughter Stella and she was very clear that she wanted a turqoise (absolutely no pink) and a non girlie card. The card happend to end up a little more cute than I intended but non girlie enough to get approved by Kristina :)



The image is from Magnolia, colored with Distress Ink re-inkers. Dies used are from Tim Holtz, Marianne Design, Cheery Lynn, Memory Box and Magnolia. Aluminum tape, turquoise embossing powder, white and turquoise cardstock, ribbons and metal charm from stash.

Have a lovely day
Hugs, Lisa
