Marilyn on the blog today

I am so pleased to have been asked to join the Kennedy Grace Creations design team and I do have to say, the sequin mixes Michelle has created are such gorgeous, lush, and pretty combinations.  As soon as I saw the package, I knew it was calling for a shaker card.  What I really like about these mixes is that they are so fine and you are able to use a single layer of foam backing as a spacer so you reduce the bulkiness of most shaker cards.

For today's card, I chose to use the Iced Berries mix which is so pretty - little hearts, clear and turquouise seed beads and four different colours and two sizes of sequins.  You can't really see them in the photo but I did glue some of the seed beads to the flower sprays.  To see all these gorgeous mixes, head on over to the Kennedy Grace Creations shop.

The card was quick and easy to make.  This is a smaller than average shaker area but I thought the blue mix would be great for the water colour.  The flower vase is a freebie digital image from Tiddlyinks and the sentiment was added with the LD Shelly Print font.   Once I had these printed, it was an easy task to cut out the vase, layer the acetate and foam, add the sequins and glue the backing down.

The colouring was done with Copics and took a whopping 5 minutes and after adding some stickles, the CAS card is complete.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …

October Mood Board with LeeAnn

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with my take on the Kennedy Grace Designs October Mood Board. If you are not familiar with mood boards they are great jumping points for a project, whether you use one of the images as the inspiration or the color palette alone. 

For my project today I decided to use the color palette, starting with the black and going from there. Using the Just A Rose Stamp Set, I stamped the Rose image using VersaMark clear ink, I then sprinkled Perfect Pearls in Copper over the image and brushed off any excess. I then fussy cut around the image to use it for my project.  I then prepared my layers for the card base. my main base is Kraft cardstock in a2 size. my next layer which is purple was trimmed to 4" x 5.25", and then the green trimmed to 3.75" x 5". I used Tear Tape to adhere the layers together as well as the rose. I used a piece of black cardstock to make a fish tail banner, I stamped the sentiment using Memento T…
