Teenz Rock

Good morning all. I hope everyone is recovered from their Fourth of July celebrating and ready for some Krafty Krew inspiration. As of last week the Krew changed to fortnightly challenges and this is just a mid-week reminder that there is still time to enter! The theme for another week is "Teenz Rock." We want to see your projects geared toward "Teenz." You could be the winner of gifts sponsored by:


Good luck and please stop by the Krafty Krew blog for more inspiration and to enter your own design!

This is one of my most favorite cards since I discovered card making about three years ago. I had no idea what I was going to do when I sat down at my craft table. The first idea was to make an easel card and from there everything else just seemed to fall into place.

The image is Tomboy Trouble from Kenny K and colored with Copie markers, of course. The sentiment is from Create with TLC.   The background papers are DCWV. The sun and grass are Cricut cuts. The cloud, fence, sentiment shape are die cuts from Fiskars, DieNamics, and Spellbinders repectively. Also featured is sewing machine stitching, a Close To My Heart tree stamp, Stickles, Close To My Heart "Topiary" and "Brown Bag" ink. Finally I added Tim Holtz Distress Ink to the sun and fence and foam dots to raise the image. Last but not least I couldn't resist adding the "button dog" left over from a previous project and the bling flowers. I hope you love it and are inspired enough to get going in creating your own project to up load to the Krafty Krew blog!
