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!

I'm now rooting for three of you to make the team.

I think you'd be great for them and you already have the East Coast swagger.

Great cards and layouts!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
