Crazy, but fun KennyK layered digi stamp project

One of the Club KennyK facebook members issued a fun  “one a day” KennyK digi coloring challenge.. you didn’t have to do them all each day.. but the goal was to do 29 in February… I finished mine up with a 17 digi project piece… LOL

My last 16…. and a bonus image !

I printed this off at 3am yesterday morning… colored till 5am and then finished it off last night.  I had to stop because I was going cross eyed lol.  I’ll double matt this one and hang it on my wall to remind myself what happens when you get a bit over enthusiastic  haha

This image is built in about 20 layers ..  it takes a while to jiggle them around to get them all in the right place and layered correctly.. but worth the effort.


Lighting wasn’t great…. but here is the final  image .. there is no toning down the Funk LOLkk_retake

The March Freebie image “SAFARI GUY” is in this motley crew, so be sure to sign up for the newletter.

Shaker Card Windows back on Ebay early January


Shaker card with Rice


Things weren’t as crazy hectic as I thought they would be, so I’ll be relisting the shaker card windows a bit earlier than expected. I will update the links on the side panel when I relist them.

For all you new to Cricut and card making… here is a brief look at shaker cards. Now a lot of people use recycled packaging and acetate sheets. We had a challenge to do  shaker cards earlier in the year and everyone struggled to get them built without everything sticking to them

…. so that is how I ended up sourcing out a supplier and then decided to share,  since I wasn’t the only one having problems finding windows.

The idea is basically like making a snow globe on a card, or if you are adventuress like me…. I came up with a new concept..GAME cards. Those are really cool and fun to make.
The game cards are like those old hand held games we had as kids, where you roll it around till the balls fall in the holes.  A small pack of balls is included with the windows in case anyone wants to try this.  I have some new colored plastic ones now too, which are great for the kids cards.

These particular windows are 3 inch diameter circles and a 1/4 in height. They have a flange to glue them down.. so no more building up layers of foam to get the height and worrying about things sticking to the adhesives…. or trying to hide the edges. You can mount these in two different ways.. over  with a frame or under….through a cut out depending on your style of card 🙂

Here are a few quick sample cards…  so you get a better idea of what I am referring to.  You can see the original posts about making these shaker cards HERE
