Discover High Hopes Rubber Stamps

I apologize ENABLER ALERT !!!! haha

This is a company that is totally new to me, I discovered them on Twitter and they have some adorable stamps…. they also have a challenge..and we all know how much we love challenges AND new goodies.  More info  on the challenge and how to get the free digital stamp  so you can join in at the bottom of this post  If you are new to this company too, this is a fab way to  join in and maybe win some of these rubber stamps if you are interested in trying them out.


I was having a quick browse around and thought I would share some of the ones that caught my eye.  As most of you regulars know by now, I have a son who is 5 tomorrow ( Where did time go) and we plan to homeschool.  Creativity is a huge part of our learning process and the lil guy LOVES to craft.  That being said I am always on the lookout for  things for him to use and also things that can be used in “school” projects…. hey no one said education had to be boring… lol.

One of the first things that caught my eye were the backgrounds; these are perfect for both of us, both for card making and  adding visuals to  stories and essays etc  later on as he learns to write his own stories.

I love backgrounds, but I am pretty picky  and most of the ones I have are  digital .. but I love these..

Forest Background T057

Treasure Map T054

Speedy Recovery Background U004

Space Scape U149













and then of course we have fairies ..  sorry Merrie haha.. There are so many cool stamps at this store.. they come in foam mounted and unmounted.  Categories galore… oh dear this could get me in trouble if the little guy sees these…No crafty budget right now.. but if he sees Dragons…. oh my !

 
I will be adding this one into  the  tab above for stamps.. it is currently called DIGIS.. but I think I need to update it to STAMPS, since I  am finding more and more cute stamp companies who do physical stamps…  So expect to see that updated soon.

 


ok I promised you  details on the High Hopes March challenge..so here they are.

For your chance to win 2 FREE High Hopes Stamps.  

You can enter this challenge to win rubber stamps using  the free digital stamp provided, if you do not currently own any High Hopes stamps. There is a link to the freebies, you have two to choose from.  You must use a High Hopes Image.   Check the High Hopes Challenge post for more details and links to the free images.

I hope some of you join in, I think I will have a go at this one.. maybe see if my little guy wants to enter too…. he is a crafting machine lately  LOL

Did you know CraftsUPrint have digi’s too.. who knew !!

I had seen one or two of them before..but didn’t realize just how many they have.

There is one artist in particular who has some real fun images.  I grabbed a bunch and had a little coloring fun last night. These were print and cut on the Cricut Explore on 110lb card, the colored with various pens…. Chameleon Pens, Zig Kurecolor and some new detailer pens I grabbed to try by Sargent Arts & Sharpie.


I made these up into a couple of cards and a frame for one of my small watercolored stamps I got from LDRS Creatives this past week… lots of fun designs so if you are looking for some character Digi’s and haven’t found what you were looking for, check them out.  The artist is Gordon Fraser and you can find his gallery here Gordon Fraser – CraftsUPrint Designer.

I have a bunch more of these fun digi’s  to get colored up… so expect to see more from this artist in the coming month.

Where are you ?

France

 

When did you first start drawing/designing seriously?

I worked as a “serious” artist from 2010 – 2013, I’d never do that again. I prefer art to be fun 😉

 

What  job did you have BEFORE you started drawing/designing for a living?

I was a software developer before I moved to France, and the last time I worked for a salary was on technical support for World of Warcraft, a video game.

 

If you could hang out with ANYONE in the world ….  who would it be?….and what is the one question you would want to ask them?

Stephen Hawking. I’d probably ask him a stupid question and spend my life mortified that I had embarrased myself.

 

What’s your favorite color?

Green.

 

What is your favorite piece in the whole store?

muchogrande

Thank you for the Flowers

Cartoons like Sponge Bob, Oggy and the cockroaches, Video Games.

A spider.

 

What is your most popular item in the store/shop?

I don’t know how long the bunny will be popular now that spring is over, but I think a lot of people who visit my store will like coffee whatever the weather.

Danny Kaye. I never drew him, but I think his goofiness has inspired some of my characters.

 

If you weren’t doing what you are doing now…. what job would you have?

Software Developer. Although I’m a bit out of date these days. I do video game design on the side to keep my hand in.

 

What’s your favorite craftroom/business supply or tool that you couldn’t live without?

My mechanical pencil, if I don’t have at least 3 in the house at one time, I start to get nervous. I seem to have bought about 20 in the past year. I think my cats eat them.

 

If your parents had named you something else… what would you have picked?

Pollyanna. My mum wanted to name me that after the novel.

 

What’s the one song guaranteed to have you shaking your booty anytime, anyplace ..anywhere?

Bob Sinclar – Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now) – oh my. It has the “everybody dance now” sample from the 90s, which makes me forget I’m over 40. I’m going to kill myself one of these days or break something.

 

Who scared you most as a kid when you were being naughty.. your parents or the boogey man?

I was nearly never naughty, but when I was it was the “disappointed” face of my mother that scared me the most.

muchogrande (3)

Carmen

 

 

What do you love most about all the people you meet through your work?

Everyone that I have met so far have been so nice. I think the crafting community really look out for artists and are very supportive. I really like that, rather than creating a “finished” product that people consume, digis are more like collaborating with hundreds of very individual artists all over the world, and I love to see how everyone interprets one image in their own way.

 

If you were a classic car…. what would you be?

I don’t know if I’d be it, but I always wanted to own a Chevy Camaro 69 SS.

 

When you are working, what is the view from your window like?

I’m lucky to have a big garden with trees and birds that play in them. Our garden is a bit unkempt so it’s a bit like living in a forest sometimes.

 

Which decade do you think had the best music?

70s Disco.

 

What’s your favorite hobby when you want to relax?

Independant video games, board games, gardening, sci-fi films, audible books about space.

 

Which drawing/product are you the most proud of in your collection?

This one was quite difficult to get the balance right, and I was quite proud of myself for even attempting the pose 🙂

Spotlight Series Day 3 – KennyK Stamps

Who are you ?

kennyk_stamps.shop.logo.rightside_1447814264__23855We are wife-and-husband team of Elena and Kenny Kiernan. I am the stamp designer for KennyK Stamps and KennyK is a professional Illustrator, together we are have lots of creative chemistry!

Store: kennykstamps

Facebook Group: Club KennyK

Blog: KennyK Stamps Blog

 

 

Where are you ?

We are currently in Northeastern Pennsylvania and came here to be close to family, although we are both NY’ers and love going back to our old stomping grounds every chance we get!

 

When did you first start drawing/designing seriously?

Kenny has been drawing since he could hold a crayon, he was born with a natural artistic talent, although he didn’t take it seriously as a profession until after graduate school. I myself was a professional Event Planner when I married The Man, and we always wanted to collaborate and jam our creativeness together. With the help of Donna Smith, we discovered the world of digi stamps, the rest is history!

 

What was the first product you ever had for sale?

The first digi product we offered for sale was a collection of sassy girl characters we called “Glam Gang”. We stopped using collection titles, but these girls made a huge impact on the paper crafting world! Here are just a few from the original Glam Gang collection –

Name your favorite cartoon?

For Kenny it is Popeye and I think mine is still old school Tom & Jerry!

 

Favorite quote?

Rock Your Crafts! Of course 🙂

 

ElenaK_digi_stamp_KennyK_Stamps.preview__87685.1443642260.400.450

ElenaK

 


What is your favorite piece in the whole store?

 

The ElenaK stamp of course! All kidding aside, this is a question I could never answer, they are all apart of us and so loved!

 

 

 

 

 

Who is your inspiration/muse?

Kenny is a huge comic book geek (a very sexy geek) and it’s our attitude, lifestyle and personalities that bring out creative inspirations.

 

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Hoarding crafts supplies that I never use. They are just so pretty to look at. Oh and Amazon Prime, there is always a package at our door.

 

What’s your favorite color?

Kenny’s is the blues and I am in the red and hot pinks.

 

If you were getting a tattoo… what would it be?

To everyone’s surprise Kenny has no tattoos and is not a fan. I have one and if he didn’t dislike them so much I would have more.

 

If you got offered a weekend in a haunted  house/castle etc.. would you say yes?

Heck no! And that is from both of us!

 

If you suddenly changed careers and went to work at Disney…what character would you want to be?

We would be The Incredibles!

 

What’s your favorite horror movie?

For me Halloween (kill, kill, kill, kill). Kenny has never seen it!!!!!! His is the Shining. Good one KennyK!

 

When no one is listening…. do you sing in the shower?

All the time!! Me, me, me, me ,meee!

 

What is your most popular item in the store/shop?

Bow_digi_stamp_KennyK_Stamps.preview__14790.1441751753.400.450

Bow

Bowadult_digi_stamp_KennyK_Stamps.Preview__35355.1441752734.400.450

Bow (Adult)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Funny enough when I designed Bow, I hadn’t giving Kenny much reference to what she would be wearing, I was going to add that on once I saw the character drawn. Kenny is the one that made her with no clothes on! I said there was no way we could put that on our shop. We would shock everyone. So, for fun, we decided to sell both versions, Bow Adult (with no clothes) and Bow and see what happens. It turns out that Bow Adult is one of our top sellers!! Right then and there we really knew who are audience was!

 

Who was your first celebrity crush…and have you drawn them?

For Kenny it was Rachel Welch and for me it was Elvis! We have never drawn them.

 

If you weren’t doing what you are doing now…. what job would you have?

I would work in production for movie sets. Kenny would be a full time musician/rock star.

 

How long have you been in business?

EST. 2011

 

If you got locked in an elevator for 6 hours.. who would you most like to be locked in with ?

Kenny said: The beautiful and vivacious ElenaK (what a guy!) I say: Sexy KennyK! duh!

 

When you get the midnight munchies… what do you grab?

We love ice cream at night. When the kids are asleep, shhhhhh!

 

What’s your favorite event, or holiday of the year?

Halloween and St. Patricks day take the cake in our house.

 

Would you go cave diving with sharks?

Absolutely not and that is for both of us.

 

Which decade do you think had the best music?

The 70’s hands down

 

Have you ever been on a blind date…. and if so..  was it fun, or a nightmare?

Huh, I don’t know if Kenny has ever been on a blind date. I have and it was a nightmare. It was a blind date, but also a double date. A couple I knew wanted to set me up with this guy. He said hi, then never looked at me or spoke to me the rest of the night, called his friends during the date and left early. I feel terrible about it till this day. I mean talk about intimidation. Poor guy couldn’t handle all that is Elena. I hope I didn’t scar him for life.

 

What’s your favorite hobby when you want to relax?

Snuggling with our little bunnies <3

 

Do you secretly watch WWE wrestling when no one is around?

Haha, no, but I know it’s hugely popular

 

If you were offered a trip to the moon, would you go..and if so .. which of your images/products would leave on the moon??

Vikki_Lee_Vicious_paper_crafts_card_making_digi_stamp_from_KennyK_Stamps.preview__14068.1449877262.400.450

 

 

 

Fun Question!  Me: Absolutely!!! One of my dreams. Kenny: No.  I would leave Vikki Lee Vicious, so they (whoever they are) would know that strong badass women rule the earth!

 

 

 

 

 

Do you plan to grow old gracefully, or disgracefully?

We don’t mind growing old, cause we are young at heart. We have had loads and loads of fun using up our youth, now we are happy to living a family life. So, gracefully, I guess.

 

If you were a classic car…. what would you be?

We would both be classic American hot rod muscle cars! Hot and Fast! LOL!!

 

How long does the average design/art work take from concept to final product?

When we don’t have other deadline interruptions it can take about 2 or 3 days of edits before we settle on a final product.

 

When you are working, what is the view from your window like

I am so lucky.  My backyard is adjacent to the elementary school, so I see they playground just past my yard. At lunch time I open my window to hear the kids playing.  Kids having fun is really the best sound ever! Kenny sees rooftops and a view of the beautiful church steeple.

 

What’s the one song guaranteed to have you shaking your booty anytime, anyplace ..anywhere?

Any good classic rock

 

Who scared you most as a kid when you were being naughty.. your parents or the boogey man?

My mom! She can have an 8ft man shaking in his boots. She is powerful!!

 

What do you love most about all the people you meet through your work?

We love that we have built friendships with people all over the world that we never met in person, but they have become a real part of our KennyK Family.

For me it’s Sexy Rocker. For Kenny it’s Superhero, a.k.a Captain Damntastic

Which drawing/product are you the most proud of in your collection?

I am truly most proud of our Steampunk collection. It is not something we were very familiar with before hand, yet we were able to create a fantastic line of sassy, sexy, intricate ladies and they are still some of our best sellers. Now we are total Steampunk fans.
