Kenny K Smeared & Smudged Blog Hop!

Welcome to a super exciting Smeared & Smudged Design Team Blog Hop featuring some ultra cool digis from Kenny K. As I have mentioned in previous posts, they are one of our fabulous sponsors this month…and you still have time to play along! I love so many of their images! They’re cheeky, rockin’ and so cool. You’ve gotta pick up some of their hawt images for yourself if you haven’t already!

The Design Team was fortunate enough to get digis from Kenny K, and we are so excited to brig our creations to you today! I made a layout using Mrs. Claus.


These photos are from Christmas Eve, 2005. Every year, my sisters, Mom, Gene and I chose a theme for us to wear. We’ve done Gothic Christmas (I know…not a stretch for us!), Ice Princesses, Victorian…just to name a few. Well, in 2005, we decided to be different styles of Santa Claus. I LOVED getting dressed this year! Check out my outfit…I bought an actual tree skirt, and turned it into a skirt I could wear! I thought it came out fabulous!

But onto Kenny K…do you see my digi??? She blends in pretty well, doesn’t she?


Isn’t she super sassy? I think she’s awesome! She is done up with my colored pencils, and I think she fits right in with the rest of us!


You can click on any of the pictures to see them bigger. I am proud to say that Phoenix helped me quite a bit in putting this page together. He painted the background with me, helped me glue the paper…we had a great time doing it! I love crafting with him.


So I am really happy with my jolly layout. I think it really captured the mood of the day. And my Kenny K Mrs. Claus is the perfect embellishment! A HUGE thank you to Kenny and Elena for your fantastic sponsorship this month!!! We love you!!! Make sure you visit not only their store…but their awesome Challenge Blog too!

Please be sure to visit the rest of the bad-ass Smeared & Smudged Design Team. I am quite certain they will wow you with their creations!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
