This project was made with vellum paper, the embossing tool from knkusa.com, plus my wonderful KNK Groove-e. I used the following settings: V=450 and F=150. For the notepad cover I used two sheets of computer paper underneath so the embossing would be a little bit deeper and more noticeable. With the Hello Kitty card I did not use anything beneath the vellum.
This is how the card looks as soon the Groove-e machine finished doing her job and before coloring:
As you can see I LOVE to work with Fun Foam. This project is really simple and was great to make with my wonderful KNK Groove-E. The Hello Kitty image is a free file from the MTC Gallery and I added the name of my granddaughter. First I typed out the letters in the font I wanted to use. These letters were to be cut from white. Then I added a yellow outline (Shadow Layer) of the name to put behind the white letters. Then I selected the yellow outline and the Hello Kitty image and made a pink outline (again using Shadow Layer) of both selections together. This resulted in one large background cut for gluing both the Hello Kitty shape and for gluing the yellow outline layer. Then on top of the yellow outline I would add the original white letters.
Before gluing, however, I colored the edges of the fun foam. As you can see, I also added glitter to the edge of the first level of the project and the second and third leyers I just colored with markers of the same color as the fun foam. Then I embelished it with a flower that was cut with my KNK Groove-E. The center of the flower is filled with glitter.
My next project is going to be a centerpiece for a boy baby shower or birthday made out of fun foam!
So see us every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday where we have new posts by the ten Team KNK designers!
As you already know my KNK machine is very important to me. I have to admit that at the beginning it was not easy, but I trusted Sandy when she said “I am going to teach you to love your KNK” and Sandy trusted me. She drove me step by step and today I can’t go one day without my KNK Groove-e. Right Chad? LOL
Ok, let’s start with my project. This is a beautiful notepad that every girl would love to have and it is really simple to make. I used my WONDERFUL KNK Groove-e, a notepad, fun foam of different colors, glue and markers.
(1) First thing I did was measure the area where I wanted to place the decoration. This measurement let me know the size that I needed to make my overall image.
(2) Then I cut all of the individual shapes in different colors of fun foam.
(3) After cutting, I colored the borders of the pieces with markers.
(4) Next, I glued them onto the notebook.
(5) Lastly, I embellished the notebook with ribbon and glitter (because I love glitter and I use it for almost all my projects!)
Today, I want to show you again that the posibilities of the KNK are endless. For this Jeep I cut the words “Jeep”, “Wrangler”, “Bling Bling”, the lines and a fire for the hook and the side of the Jeep.
As you can see this is really simple, and you don’t need to be a professional to make something look really nice. The only thing that I used was my KNK, computer, vinyl, transfer tape and a lot of wishes that everything would work perfectly! LOL
Before installation, I had to clean the area really, really well. Then, the words “Bling Bling” were installed dry, but the other letters and the fire on the hook were installed wet so I could move them easily and align them as needed.
Another project that I did was cutting the letters for this store window. What I thought would be really difficult turned out to not be hard at all. For the first time, I did an application with two vinyl colors together, and this worked perfectly. I had no experience doing this and it worked for me! I am very happy with the results!
To combine the two colors, I added two circles to the design that would be cut out from both colors of vinyl. These work as alignment points so that when you are going to put the layers together, you match the two circles first and the letters of one color will then align with the other perfectly.
These are the decorations that I made for my granddaughter’s room. As you can see, I have been very busy!
The Hello Kitty shapes are from MTC files that I cut in different colors of Fun Foam and embellished with glitter. The flowers were cut from wall vinyl from KNKUSA.COM.
In this case, Hello Kitty is the same file that I used to make the Acrylic Album post. I enlarged the file and cut brown and pink wall vinyl from KNKUSA.COM, the same that was used for the flowers.
The lamp was brown when I bought it, so I changed the color to pink and embellished with Fun Foam that I cut with my TERRIFIC KNK GROOVE-E. I also cut specialty vinyl from KNKUSA.COM, added some ribbon, and then added my final touch, as always, glitter. I love glitter!!!
