Happy 18 - Kenny K

Another Kenny K card from me. This is for a girl who turns 18 next week, and her mom asked if I could make a card. I've tried to make the card according to her wishes - quite simple, peach, green, brown, springy colours yet somewhat subtle as the girl is pretty down-to-earth person (easy peasy!).

I made her an easelcard, and I hope she'll like it.


Inside there's a panel with a text from Kort & Godt, and space to write a personal greeting

Last week a co-worker asked me if I could make a wedding card for a wedding she's invited to. I haven't made many weddingcards, so I jumped at the chance.

Here's what I came up with. Not really original, but I've wanted to make a card like this for a while, as I think they look so nice.

Kenny K

Here's a card I made a couple of days ago, with another Kenny k image (I love them!). Coloured with distress inks.

 Papers from Pion, dies from spellbinder and Magnolia. Not easy to see, but I've dryembossed the pink panel with cute dots to make it more "alive". 
I sewed all the edges.
 Might be easier to see the embossed dots here
Flowers from WOC, doily, the lace is tied to a tag from Magnolia, which is hidden behind the picture.

Happy Birthday: Sugar Nellie

My niece is 5 years old tomorrow, and we're just home from her birthday celebration. Here's the card I made for her. She's a typical 5-year old, totally addicted to anything pink and princess-like. So, it had to be a pink card with a lot of glitter.

 Papers from Magnolia and Melissa Frances. The Sugar Nellie Manga Princess stamp is new, and I coloured it with distress inks. I also got to try my new butterfly-dies from Sheery Lynn. Lots og stickles (diamond) around the frame of the picture, on her dress and on the butterflies. I've also used a lot of liquid pearls (white opal).

Hard to see, but I've used glittery fabric bought at the Magnolia shop in Borås this summer. First time I use it! 
 The inside. Stamp from Stempelblad.
Stamp from NSS.


Challenges I'm entering my card in:
* Papiravisen - bursdag

Happy Valentine: Kenny K

Oh, I enjoyed making this card! I've been thinking about it for a while, and contrary to the mothersday cards I made this weekend (which definitely didn't turn out the way I wanted them to), this one came pretty darn close to what I had in mind. Yay!

I've been longing to make a card with Kenny K images, as I love them. And for my husband I think Sexy Cupid is perfect...

I took the pictures before writing to my hubby - because that's a secret well kept between the two of us ;)
