In With The New at Club Kenny K

Did you have a great Christmas and New Year?  The team at Club Kenny K had a little break, but we're back now and changing things up a little for 2017.  Our challenges are now going to be monthly starting 1st February and will all be Anything Goes.  You will also be able to enter with just a colouring or with mixed media as long as it uses a Kenny K image.

To start the year we are doing a little introduction to the DT and GDT with some inspiration on the theme 'New'. I am using 'Sweet Melissa' as I haven't coloured her before plus a background image from Make It Crafty called 'Home Sweet Home' (also new to me).

They have given the team some wonderful stamps to play with and I chose 'Fruit Note'.  It comes with a few sentiments to use too and is very versatile.

Sparkle Princess Frame

I have recently enrolled for Kit & Clowder's monthly colouring classes and just completed my second one.  It uses a very cute image from Stamp Anniething. While I was colouring, my two year old daughter looked and said it was a princess, so I decided to make it into a frame to put up in her bedroom. The sparkly element of the class was just perfect to go with the new clear stamps that I just got from Kraftin' Kimmie.

  • 3D foam squares

A Naughty Purple Wedding

My naughty friend just ran off to St.Lucia to get married, so naturally I had to tell her off for not giving me notice to make a card! Luckily I had printed a wedding image a while ago, but hadn't got around to colouring it (I must've known).  Her favourite colour is the same as mine, so it was nice to colour a purple bride for a change. 
I have used these products to create my card:

  • Kenny K 'Wedding Dance' image
  • Papermania cardstock
  • DoCrafts Forever Friends designer paper 
  • Embossalicious embossing folder
  • Ribbon, lace, pearls & outline stickers from my stash

Almost Christmas!

Eek.... I haven't been about for a while.  I am crafting, just haven't had the time to blog.  Well, I'm sure all you crafters know what it's like at this time of year making a million Christmas cards!
I am going to share one very special Christmas card as it's been received now.   This one I made for Alyce and Jon (Kit & Clowder) as my wedding roses never arrived. The wonderful Amanda at Faery Ink even drew me a special image to use. (You can actually get a couple of versions of the image in the shop now, just not with Alyce's cat Lila poking out of the tree!)
This is the first double-z fold pop-up card I've made (If you follow you know I love trying new card styles).  I've used the following products:

  • Embellishments from Jolee's Boutique
  • Designer Paper from Dovecraft - 'Krafty Christmas'
  • Outline stickers from DoCrafts Anita's
  • Red & Green Stickles
  • Wink of Stella Clear
  • Sakura Gelly Roll White
  • ProMarkers - Burnt Orange, Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Rose Pink, Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Satin, Denim, Midnight, Pear Green, Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa, Buttercup, Tulip, Mustard, Vanilla, Gold, Raw Sienna, Black, Cool Grey 1, 2, 3 & 5, Antique Pink, Pastel Pink, Crimson, Ruby, Berry, Saffron, Warm Grey 1,2,3 & 4, Forest, Moss, Aegean, Cyan, Duck Egg, Cool Aqua, Tea Green, Magenta, Cerise, Pink Carnation, Bright Green, Lime Green & Lipstick

Lots of photos on this one as it you see different things from different angles!
