It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at Stampin Dragon and what better way to start ringing in the holiday but with Kenny K Download!!

Elena & Kenny K Digital Downloads
The man ....

I wielded a mean crayon in my early days growing up in the Bronx, but
made the quantum leap to the Mac at my first art studio job in 1990, and have been working as a digital artist ever since. My previous work experience includes seven years in consumer and pharmaceutical ad agencies as a photo retoucher and Mac production artist, a season at MTV Animation, and many, many freelance illustration and Flash animation jobs. These days when I'm not beating the hell out of my bass with the rest of the hooligans in my bands Almost Famous and Air Dogs, I'm hard at work here at my home art studio in Pearl River, NY.

In addition to the digi stamps and forthcoming downloadable content available
here at, much of my other existing work is available for personal
and commercial licensing; check out the Licensing section at for more
info on my existing properties - and feel free to browse the rest of the site, where
tons of my illustration and animation work are on display!

The woman behind the man . . . .

My name is Elena (a.k.a "Elena K" or "Lady K") and
I am the feminine touch of I have been producing events and party planning for over 6 years in NYC and am a crafter at heart - I love anything creative, both handmade and digitally produced. I even ventured into business for myself starting a homemade basket company back in 2000; I eventually realized it was the creation that I loved, not the business side. My next leap of faith was to put my natural creative talents to use in the corporate world. Nothing like planning big events in New York on a big budget! Loving it ever since. Kenny and I have been looking forward to collaborating on a project together since we got married, and we are finally moving on it now with! ; While Kenny continually cranks away producing his amazing art, I'll be here in the site to keep things running smoothly, as Kenny pops in when time allows.

Kenny was so kind to offer the following as prizes:
1st place:  3 images
2nd place: 2 images
3rd place:  1 image

Way cool!!!

Our Guest Design Team Member Kelly Smith

: Hi, my name is Kelly Smith; I live in Oldbury in the West Midlands with my husband and 3 children.

I started crafting in July 2010 after I decided I needed a hobby. I love card making the most although I do like to make jewellery and candles. I have always loved colouring since I was little and colouring images and then matching papers and embellishments to them just gives me a great sense of achievement.

The water challenge was the first I have won and I am really honoured to be a guest designer for Stampin with the Dragon and thank Janette and Beth for giving me this opportunity.

and her take on the sketch:

So, there you have it.  Now lets see what you all come up with.

Our lovely Design Team has come up with great ideas on how to put that ink too work so here they are.

First is our Guest Design Team Member Margie Visnick.

About me:

I am a Stay at Home mom of 4 beautiful children, and I grab my crafty time whenever I can get a free moment. I have been scrapbooking for over 11 years, and I started making cards and other crafty gifts on a more frequent basis when I received my Cricut Expression over 3 years ago.I have been blogging for about 2 years at, and I love sharing my crafty ideas with like minded people, and have made some great friends through the process!
And here is her card:
I made this card for my son, since this sweet little image reminded me of him! I used a Chatterbox paper kit that I had in my stash, and one of my favorite inking techniques, direct-to-paper, with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I inked the edges of my card on each layer before attaching them to each other, and added a paper doily that I crumpled slightly and inked with Tumbled Glass and Tea Dye ink pads.I stamped a sentiment from Autumn Leaves with Tea Dye ink and then Walnut Stain on a stitched tag, and the image was colored with Copics  
Now for the rest of the Design Team:









There you have it. Now lets see what you all come up with.

Wow!!  October 1st is here and with that it brings a lot of good stuff your way.  Today is the day we are having our Grand Opening of our Store Message Board.  If you haven't done so already please go over and join (it's free). 

There will be lots of great information and you will get to meet our very First "Spotlight" Guest Designer for the month of October Kate.  She is a very talented lady and if you would like to follow Kate's steps on becoming a "Spotlight" Guest Designer please go to our store forum and sign up to see what it takes to become a "Spotlight" Guest Designer.  

Meet Kate: 

Hi my name is Kate,
I live in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire in the UK. Local landmark I suppose the nearest is the largest single span suspension bridge across the River Humber.

I am relatively new to crafting in the card making, scrap booking and altered art sense; I suppose I got started in it as the husband finally after almost 7 years found himself a hobby – that would be fishing, so I needed something to fill my time too. However over the years, of which there have been many, (to many to mention), I have knitted, sewn, created some lovely cakes and decorated some large windows.

My husband and best friend Matt, assists and fully supports my crafts as well as the shopping that goes with it. After 11 years, he agrees with me when I say I am like a child in a sweet shop when I go shopping at my favourite locations around the area.

I would like to thank Beth and Janette for giving me the opportunity of being a Guest Designer, and hope that from my Beach Hut (my craft room) I can provide a little bit of inspiration.

Here is one of her cards:

Please visit her blog at and leave her some love.


Next we have a very special event this Sunday and the only hint I will give you is the word Halloween.

What does it mean?? Well, come on back Sunday and you will find out.
