Monochrome Birthday Surprise at Club KennyK

You all love KennyK Stamps right?  Well they might bear the name of the man, but the awesome designer behind these images is his wife Elena K.  And right now we are celebrating at Club KennyK because it's Elena's birthday.  

We wanted to do something special for her, so I came up with the idea of creating a rainbow - each designer choosing a colour and making a monochrome card using that colour. It's been cold and grey here lately, so I wanted to make something bright and sunny and chose orange.  I am using the 'Fun Faerie' image as this is one I haven't coloured before and fairies lend themselves to all colours!
Please come on over to the club and wish Elena a happy birthday for your chance to win 2 images of your choice. 

Products I have used to create my card:
  • Kraft card blank from Michaels
  • Cardstock & gems from Papermania
  • Platinum Stickles
  • Twine & 3D foam pads from my stash
  • Sizzix Thinlits - Tim Holtz Celebration Script Words
  • Crafter's Companion Floral Dance Die'sire Edge'ables
  • ProMarkers - Spice, Coral, Soft Peach, Blush, Mango, Burnt Orange, Bright Orange, Pumpkin, Amber, Gold, Black, Warm Grey 5, Apricot, Peach, Tulip, Mustard & Buttercup

I've also given the envelope a bit of bling with some gold tape I found at Dollarama

Totally Pawsome

Kit & Clowder are having a challenge in their Facebook group at the moment using an image from Some Odd Girl.  I have never used this company before, so had to grab 'Crazy Love Tia'. 
And being a K&C challenge I had to colour a background as well as the image! This is something I was never brave enough to do previously and I'm really enjoying taking my image to the next level now. 
This one was really simple; I just drew grey lines for the skirting board, stippled a dark grey carpet and used a single colour for the wall. I then drew white flowers over the wall. 

Products I have used to create my card:

  • Michaels Kraft card blank 
  • DoCrafts ribbon & brad
  • Clear stamps from my stash (can't remember where they're actually from, it was possibly a magazine freebie!)
  • Memento ink 'Tuxedo Black)
  • 3D foam pads
  • Sakura Gelly Roll White
  • ProMarkers - Spice, Coral, Soft Peach Blush, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Tan, Black, Midnight, Denim, Powder, Magenta, Carmine, Cerise, Pear Green, Caramel, WG 1, 2, 4 & 5

  1. Simon Says Wednesday - AG
  2. Through The Craft Room Door - 24-30 Jan AG
  3. A Perfect Time To Craft Open - #1 AG
  4. Classic Design Team Open - #10 AG
  5. Come and Get It - No Designer Paper
