Level Up

Level Up!!

Level UpGood morning!! I had an order for a young man who was turning 14, and was crazy about video games.  I knew that KennyK Stamps had just the image, and before I could go and buy it, I won it on one of the many good-bye games they are having on their Facebook Group!  I did, however, manage to go a bit overboard on the budget that I’d set for myself when I went shopping….the sale is just too good, and it’s the last chance to get these images!!  I colored Boy Gamer up with my SN markers, and was sitting around trying to decide on layout, when I got a panic text, saying the birthday was the next day, not in a week, like she thought!!  Of course this was 15 minutes before company arrived!  I set into motion, FAST, the image was about 75% colored, so I finished,  found paper, started cutting and laying out! My company sat and laughed as I printed a sentiment on the computer, added a sticker number – that I added Glossy Accents to for dimension – and some silver adhesive balls.  I’m happy with how this turned out, especially since it’s one of the fastest cards I’ve ever made.  What’s more important, the recipient loved it, as well :)

Super DadHi there!! I made this card for a friend’s dad, using this image from KennyK Stamps. Sadly, the KennyK store is shutting down at the end of June, but they are having a mega sale, so check it out, while you still can!!  I colored the image with my Prismacolors, then fussy cut it out.  I used this sketch

Sketch 114

From Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2​ to lay the card out, using a variety of bright DP, a mirrored circle embossed with the Darice diamond plate  embossing folder, and cut with Nellie Snellen nesting circle die, a strip of sentiments and a couple of screw head brads.

Smile!

Smile!Hello!! I won this image on last month’s Club KennyK Facebook challenge, and just loooove it!! Retro Selfie is so sassy, but I just had to give her a vintage look when I chose my color palette.  I colored the image with my Prismacolors, then went to work assembling the card. The background paper is from a stack that was a magazine freebie a few years ago. I immediately thought of the film strip tape from Tim Holtz when I saw this image, as well as the die cut film strip that I had for ages. I didn’t have any pink roses in the shade I wanted, so I made these using a punch and paired them up with an off white rose from my stash and some gold fern leaves that I die cut with a Frantic Stamper die. It needed something more, so I coated some wire with Flower Soft, twisted it up, and added a few sprigs here and there. I stamped and embossed a gold “smile” sentiment, then stamped over it with black for a shadow effect.

Muddy DadHi there!! Another week has flown by, and it’s time for another challenge at C.R.A.F.T.   This time, we’re having fun with 3D Decoupage.  Our fabulous sponsor is KennyK Stamps, so we got to rock it with these cool images.  I was given Cool Trucker to work with. After coloring (and coloring) with my SN markers, I fussy cut all the layers I needed. I positioned the image so it was driving out of a window cut into the background…embossed with a Spellbinders folder and inked with Distress Inks.  I cut the mud splat with a Tim Holtz die, added a few more random spots, then coated it with Glossy Accents. Dad and the road sign were cut with my Cricut.  Loving how this turned out….reminds me of quadding with the guys in my younger years :)

Hi there!!  My card today has been travelling the world for a while, en route to Australia.  I made this for Alyce at Kit and Clowder, as a thank you for all the support and encouragement that she gives to us Clowdies!!! The image is from KennyK Stamps, and can be found HERE.  I colored her up with my SN markers, then matted the image on some paper that matched her jacket.  I die cut some teal flourishes with a Couture Creations die, and added some flowers to coordinate with the rest of the card.  Everything was put on an backing paper that we embossed with a Darice embossing folder.  A bit of sparkly ribbon, some blingy centres for the flowers, white gel pen accents, and a stamped sentiment finish this card off :)
