Oh and you missed out on THIS too….  I decided to have a random Subscriber pull for the heck of it..sooo… just for fun and to say thank you I wanted to pull a subscriber and invite them to  show off their crafting skills….AND …. answer the Spotlight Questions we just saw all of the guests complete.  I had to laugh when I saw who Random.org pulled for this one…I love this lady, both as a crafter and a person-ality…and boy does she have personality.   I can’t think of anyone who is more perfectly suited to this that YOU….. Shannon Abblitt.  

Now the question is …. Will you do it? will you be our first Crafter Spotlight Guest?  I will email you later today when I send out all the winner emails for the giveaways…I hope you say yes  🙂

Anywho.. bring on the winners !!!!!

Winners were picked using the Random.org widget

Emails will go out later today ( about 12 hours from now ) and you have 48 hours from when I send them to respond and claim your prize and then your claim will be forwarded to the sponsor for prize delivery…. so consider this a head start because I got through picking/verifying winners faster than I anticipated.

spotlight series

Now  you are going to wish you had commented on the spotlights when you read them..I dropped enough hints to sink a battle ship, not that I should have needed to *cough.

Anywho….  There are a lot of different prizes on offer, some US only, but most are worldwide.. please be sure to read the eligibility on each one you wish to enter.

I would like to thank the spotlight guests  and sponsors for  such a fab series.  It all started off with a crazy idea in the wee hours one morning and snowballed from a maybe once a week or month thing to..all of a sudden daily. It’s been a lot of work and a lot of fun.. and for sure has been an eye opener for me.  Trust me  when you have a month of 5am bedtimes.. an eye opener isn’t always bad thing lol.  AND .. we have more guests who want to play along..so look forward to more spotlights in the coming weeks and months 🙂

Thank you everyone ..and GOOD LUCK !!!

Chameleon Pens – New Skintone 5 Pack Giveaway

chameleon_logoChameleon Pens have joined us as a End of Spotlight Series Prize Sponsor.  If you missed the whole spotlight Series  last month…. you can find all of the Spotlight Series Guests & their fun Q&A’s as well as the main post for the Spotlight Series Giveaway with all the fab prizes up for grabs HERE.

Chameleon Pens; as you know if you are a regular blog visitor are one of my top two preferred pens for cardmaking and coloring my stamps & digital stamps.  I got a set of these skintone pens to play with from the recently released new color palette…and I am “in luuuuurrrv” You will have seen these used in my recent projects..shame on you if you haven’t been following my blog *grin.

I have to say I was and still am extremely impressed with the new skintone palette, specially NU00 Nude .. LOVE  that pen….. and now you have a chance to try them too.

chameleon_skintone chameleon_skintone2
If you aren’t lucky enough to score a set for free….  these pens are available for purchase at Chameleon Pens and I’d be  a happy lil clam if you considered purchasing them through the links below, or throughout the  blog.

.. I earn commission on purchase made through my affiliate  links….every lil helps…. but even if you don’t …. here’s the run down anyway.

The new expanded range comes in a gorgeous carrying case.  I was well impressed with the packaging on my original 22 pen set… but the new one  * sigh… one day you will be mine !!

 

 

 

If you already own the 22 pen  set, you can buy the expansion… I know all you online gamers just love that word “expansion”  which includes the new colors in the awesome carrying case.. with room to add in your original set …. totally rockin idea there  Chameleon 🙂
* may not be available everywhere just yet, check your region.

 

 

 

5PackGroup__24412.1463164935.500.750

 

 

If you are on a tight budget … of course you can always just grab the  new palette range in 5 packs.. either individually..or in the bundle deal they have available.

and if you are REALLY REALLY strapped for cash but still would love to try these.. guess what.. you can buy these pens individually too….. so that NU00 can still be yours.

 

 

 

 

But …. in the meantime, I have a set with someone’s name on them and you don’t even have to  leave a comment…unless you want to and that would be really cool too.  It helps me and the sponsors see which of the posts/offers are popular and whether it’s worth repeating similar offers/giveaways or not in the future.

So if you want to see more offers and giveaways…. say now, or forever hold your piece!!!

Big Shout Out to Chameleon Pens, not only for a fantastic product which I love…. but for giving me a chance to share this fab product with one of you!

I know, I know..get on with the giveaway details….  It’s very simple…………..

Zig Kurecolor Alcohol Markers & Giveaway

It seems to come up a lot lately in some of the cardmaking and coloring groups I am in on Facebook… lots of people are trying out the  Zig Clean Color Markers, but few know about the Zig Kurecolor set.  Since I am a huge fan of the Zig Kurecolor markers I have, I thought I would share this info for anyone who might be interested.

I had been struggling to find a skin tone  that suited my style and budget when I ran across these on the CraftingAbility website. I already had the set of Memory System Markers and loved the tips on those… so when I saw that Zig had alcohol markers with the same  fine tip, I grabbed some to try.

The brush tip on the  Zig Kurecolors isn’t like most brush tips I have tried, it’s a bit fatter, rounder and and not so stiff and I love it.  Add in the fab fine tip and … the fact I finally FINALLY found my color. SOLD !!!!

Kurecolor_fine_brush_Dual_Tip_CNKC2200_731_pale_beige_details
I am not a huge fan of pinky/orange faces… it reminds me too much of girls who can’t find the right foundation makeup.  Just personal preference, each to their own.  I picked up 3 pens to try and get a good skin combo and  the one I  absolutely can’t live without … Pale Beige #731.

kurecolor_test

Image – KennyK Stamps

Now Zig do two types of Zig Kurecolor….refillables, much like the Copic, Spectrum etc… and one that is not marketed as refillable.. but TOTALLY is and really would be another great selling point if they were marketed as such.  The pens are slimline, so won’t hold as much ink as the ones marketed as refillable.. but they are super quick and easy to fill, so I am not worried about that at all.

No replacement tips for these ones.. since they aren’t marketed as refillable, however that is not to say that the replacement tips wouldn’t work in these, I just haven’t had any to try… but you know I will  give it a shot when I do lol.  But they do come with my two favorite tips and so far, I have had no need to replace them anyway and I am not the most delicate of people when it comes to markers.

Zig seem to have very durable tips that have held up to my scribbling and Cricut Explore perfectly.  They also play nicely with other alcohol markers I have and I am definitely one to mix and match my pens.  So if you have other alcohol pens, but just can’t find the right skintones for your tastes, or feel like you are missing some colors you would like.. or you really just need different tips..check these out.

Me, as soon as I can, I’ll be  buying every single one of them lol.  I just have to decide between the dual tip refillables and these Manga pens I currently have…and really like.

425-kc1100_tips

 

52-kc3000

The Refillable version comes in two versions of dual tip.. the twin and twin ‘s’ .   I believe all Kurecolors come in the entire color range, but don’t quote me on that.

The Twin pens ( twin and twin’s’ ) also have replacement tips which can be purchases in packs of 10.  Please check the details on these as not all tips can be used on both pens .  I’m hoping to get my hands on some of these myself soon to try, and if and when I do… I’ll be sure to let you all know.  One of these, not sure which model yet, will be available on special order for anyone interested..( 10 days or less) I’ll let you all know as soon as they are listed, or you can sign up for their newsletter. Because I’ll be grabbing some myself to play with 🙂

308-kc_inks


and then of course there are the refills… 25ml in whatever colors  you need.  If you fall in love with the 731 like I did, I highly recommend you buy these in multiples ..lol I can tell you it’s hell when you run out and have to wait for refills.  I have 3 now and happy as a clam. I am soo not running out of that color again lol. Refills come in single color, or sets ..I believe it’s sets of 10, or 12 to correspond with the pen sets.





The color range is not as vast as Copic, but with 136 pens in the range ( 135 colors and a blender pen),  plus tip blending capabilities….there is more than enough color variety for most peoples needs …and budgets.   I just got my mits on a set of the Hair and muted tones manga pens… so  expect to see projects  and a review of those soon too.


I think I read somewhere that these inks are also suitable for paint guns.. so I’ll be giving that a shot too. I know my other alcohol inks worked in it.

Fill in the blanks “saucy” Birthday Shaker Game Card

Ok.. before you click on the link …or scroll any further down this post, if you are overly sensitive, PC… or easily offended.. leave NOW. I take no responsibility for the minds of anyone who comments on this post LOL. Although I do have moderation turned on….I am not going to refuse to publish any comments, unless they are beyond even my limits of bad taste..and let me be clear.. aint much offends me lol.

It’s all in good fun ..and if you can’t take it in the way it is intended… best go check out some flowery cards 🙂  I have those too.

Ladies feel free to use Hash, @ signs etc. when you filling the blanks whilst commenting…. if you feel the need  🙂 .  It is not  necessary to make a saucy comment.. just a fun and fitting one, but there is always the possibility that someone will GO THERE ! Remember this is more a reflection on your minds.. than mine LOL .. so feel free to make use of the tags, I am sure everyone will be well aware of what you are trying to convey  LOL.

This is a card I have had on my todo list for a good 4 months or more.. and I finally got to do it in the wee hours of this am. I was chatting with one of the girls online about 5 am about what sentiments I wanted to use….when it occurred to me, this would be a fun giveaway.  So yet again… here is a chance to grab a 10 pack of shaker card windows and balls and have a laugh at the same time.

I love these kind of fill in the blank cards, so much fun to personalize them to the recipient.

shaker game cardI am sure I don’t need to tell you .. she is a KennyK girl… This is “Cabaret”  colored with Chameleon pens and riding a  3inch diameter shaker window game card.

Ok ladies..start filling in the blanks…  anyone can comment with their ideas, but only US residents are able to win the shaker windows.  Sorry, shipping is way too expensive internationally for small packets like this…and this all comes out of my own pocket.  To make it easier on everyone, specially me.. please indicate if you are outside the US in your comments.

A winner will be picked randomly  May 31st and announced June 1st .. If you are the winner, please make sure you check and respond to the email you will receive at the address you used  to comment.
