Kenny K New Christmas Release!!

Woohoo! It's time for another challenge with the Kenny K Krafty Krew!
Holiday Chic: Sparkle

Kenny K Downloads is also releasing three new and fun Christmas digis!

Our wonderful sponsors for this fortnight's challenge:

5 digis of the winner's choice


$20 Gift Certificate

I decided to color up Cozy Cocoa. I knew as soon as I saw it that I would use that one first for a tag on a gift.

I made the box from a template I made and made it large enough that I could package up some cocoa and marshmallows inside for Hot Cocoa for Two.

How perfect is that My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas paper with the reindeer for the cabin feel!

I embossed the box and used Vintage Photo DI to bring out the impression better. 

I used my Copics to color her and for my bit of sparkle I added glitter glue to the stockings, wreath bow, lips and nail, although you can't even tell in the pic:(

Can't wait for you all to join in this challenge and stop by the Kenny K Krafty Krew blog to see the rest of the Design Teams creations with the new releases!

It's Blog Hop Time!!

Our monthly blog hop time is here! Our lovely host is...Vili!
She has chosen the theme of ...Birthday!

Make sure to leave comments on the blogs along the hop for a chance to win one of two $5 store credits for Mo's Digital Pencil!!

I decided to make one of my sons a birthday card using the Video Boy image. This is totally my oldest son. He knew it, too, when he saw it! I had fun stenciling some stars and circles on the background paper and I used my molded stars to embellish. 

Okay, so you should have came here from Anneke's blog and your next stop from here is Kaly!

Enjoy the hop!

Tilda at the Beach

Yay for me! Two cards in one day! I have tried my hand at another Magnolia Tilda stamp. They are slowly growing on me.

I have used some papers from the Prima Moulin Rouge pad and the striped one is a Glitz paper, I think.  I have used one of my new punch around the page punches, Deco Fan, as I thought they looked shell-like.  

I frantaged the image with Shabby Blue and the sand with Aged Gold. At the same time I made the from for my previous card, I also used the other molds I had to make buttons, flourishes and stars. I thought the buttons looked like sand dollars and the flourishes- waves. So I threw those on my card. 

The little sea Stars and blue shell were decorations at a cousins wedding, and as we were leaving I had my husband help me collects some as I knew I would be able to craft with them (we were allowed)!

I dyed some seam binding with Broken China and Chipped Sapphire and attached them to a little corked bottle that I found at Joann's. I am so disappointed as they no longer carry them in-store and with a coupon they were super inexpensive! Add some burlap painted with gesso and it was done!

Baby Fairy Flora

Today is my day to share with you my card for Mo's Dream Team blog! I have used Baby Fairy Flora (redux), which you can find at Mo's Digital Pencil. I have loved this image from the moment I saw it and am so happy to have finally snatched her up and colored her!
She is absolutely adorable! I know I seem to say that a lot about Mo's images, but they are ALL SO CUTE!

I have used Pink Paislee's London Market papers and Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers. I got out my Pear Pen again and my Shabby Pink Frantage. 

The sweet frame I made using a Martha Stewart silicone mold and the crafting clay that goes along with it. I have had it for awhile and finally opened it up and had a play!

I wanted to use my doily border punch for a shaped card look but didn't have the corner punch, so I used another corner punch I had and it came out okay. 

The heart tag I attached some seam binding dyed with Spun Sugar DI and attached a Pearl button. I also stamped a crest with a bee from Prima on the tag which, of course, I didn't photograph.

Copics used:

Skin-E000,00,21,11,R20, 22
Hair-E50,53,55,57, 59

Christmas in Aqua and Red

It's that time again- a new challenge theme for Kenny K's Krafty Krew Challenge!
Anything Goes

As always we have several amazing prizes to be won, sponsored by some amazing companies!

Kenny K Downloads

Love's Rubber Stamps

Marianne Designs

I have made a tag to share with you using Toy Soldier. I used red and aqua as my color palette as I thought that it was to be the challenge, but it was switched and I had already made the tag! I actually really the the combo now!

I used My Mind's Eye paper pad, Lost and Found Christmas and some die cuts. I used Viva Pearl Pen in Ice White. Love the Pearl pens, small pearls big pearls I can do them all without them looking misshapen like the Liquid Pearls.

I distressed the papers and inked the edges with Tumbled Glass DI.

Now that I am looking at my tag, I think I will go back with some more stamping on the top of the tag, like I did around the image. Maybe....I'm tired. I did a 5k Mud Run today and it was a blast, but I am pooped!

Today I am sharing a card I have made using the cutest little witch in digi-land, Tabitha from Mo's Digital Pencil.
Since I made my little nephew a card, I decided to make his sisters a card, too! I used some Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows papers and my silhouette for the black die cuts. I decided to add the tree's face with my craft knife at the last minute. I added some white get pen to the bat's wing overlapping the haunted house die cut to help it pop!

The sentiment is a cut out from the same old paper pad from Joann's that I used on my Zombified card.
