We welcome back an amazing sponsor

Digi and rubber stamps from KennyK are a fun and edgy way to add the perfect dose of attitude and style to all of your creations! 

The creator, the artist, the man: KennyK wielded a mean crayon during his formative years in the Bronx, developing his signature funky-but-slick, urban-influenced style - and over the years has completed countless assignments for many of the biggest ad agencies and corporate clients in the business. His work runs the gamut from big-budget advertising campaigns and promotions, editorial illustration, toy/game and product packaging, to sexy pinup babes, anime and retro character designs, comic books, computer games, t-shirt and sticker designs and Flash animation - all that fun stuff! 

I’m ElenaK, the woman behind the man, and the feminine touch of KennyKDownloads.com. I have been producing events for over 6 years in NYC and am an entrepreneur and a crafter at heart!  Kenny and I had been searching for the perfect collaborative project to combine our respective skill sets since we got married; we are now making it happen with KennyKdownloads.com and having a blast! 

Here are some lovely cards from our design team using some fab Kenny K digi stamps




Hope you all have a good week
