Kenny K Design Team Call

I very recently went from being on four design teams, to being on only 2. At one point, I was on 5! There was always one team in particular that I wanted to be on, but the timing wasn't right, or I already had enough on my plate. But, the stars have (hopefully) aligned themselves. I am trying out for the Kenny K Design team. Today, I am sharing not only a new Kenny K project, but a few of my favorites from the past. I hope you enjoy them all!

I just finished this card for the latest Kenny K Challenge which is Pearls. I used Allura Von D (who is my favorite Kenny K gurl that I have.

I used my usual mix of watercolor markers and Copics to color her in. I, of course, had to give her some teal hair in the front to match mine.

I used some foiled paper (the one with the kisses) and a couple of other funky patterns. I stamped the sentiment with a Just Rite stamper, and my pears are Liquid Pearls in Platinum from Ranger. Can I just say that I really, really want her boots! Did you think I was going to say boobs??? Hahahaha!

Here are some of my past favorites.

This is a card I made for my husband, gene, last year. It features Harley Ryder, which happens to be the Krash Kitten that I named! See the whole blog post HERE. And apparently, I really like teal, purple and hot pink!


This layout was done for a Kenny K/Smeared & Smudged Blog hop. Check out that post HERE.


I had made this card for a sketch challenge. I love using super bright colors for my Kenny K images, as you can see. This blog post is HERE.


This is a Valentine's Day card that I made for Gene. Again, more with the uber brights. That post is HERE.


Here's my softer side featuring Kenny K's images. I love this card. I made quite a number of them for the Holidays of 2010. See that post HERE.


Here's another card featuring Allura Von D. Here, I had colored her to look like me, as I gave this card to Gene as well. My hair looked just like this at the time. Too bad the body didn't! See that post HERE.


I had a great time making this one. I loved covering my brick wall with graffiti. I thought it really worked with this image. See that post HERE.

So there are some of my faves that I've made using Kenny K images. I really, really hope to get on this team. I know I would have an absolute blast! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
