Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlia + Zig Clean Color Watercolor

Hey folks!

My name is Cynde Whitlow. I'm from The Pink Envelope and this is my first official Guest Design post for the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog and I'm so excited to be here!

Sooo...to kick off my first card, I thought I would use the Kennedy Grace Creations July Mood Board for a lil bit of inspiration.


I started by stamping the Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlia on Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color in the image. I usually will pick a light and dark in the same color, but this time, I decided to just use one color for each so I was super duper careful to keep the darkest of the color where the deepest shadows would be.


I used a ruler and created a frame around (ish) the bouquet with a Copic Multiliner. You could totally use a rectangle die and trace around it, but I decided to use the width of my ruler and kind of eyeball it.

Then, I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker in Gray and scribbled it on to my craft mat so I could use a water brush to create a shadow just inside the frame.


I trimmed down the panel with a My Favorite Things Die-Namics Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle Die. I also used a My Favorite Things Burlap Background Stamp and did some tone on tone stamping on my card base.

To finish off my my card, I used a healthy dose of Clear Wink of Stella on the highlights of the flowers and added some super fab Clear Sequins from the Vintage Tea Cup and At The Beach Sequins Mixes by Kennedy Grace Creations.

That's it! Easy peasy.

Thank so much for stopping by to see me and I really hope you enjoyed my card today!

Until next time!

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…

Happy Owl-idays!

Hello, everyone! Rachel here with you today!

I'm loving the cute little critters that are going to be coming up in a new release and I think you're going to love them, too. I have a clean and simple creation using a new owl image for you today.


I started my card by masking off a small strip on the right hand side of the card and then blending purple and pink inks into the strip to create an ombre effect. After it had dried, I used a stencil and some texture paste to create my falling snow. I carefully removed my masking paper and then let the texture paste dry.

While I waited, I colored my little owl image and used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut him out. (Have I mentioned lately how much I hate fussy cutting?) When I was sure the card was dry, I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment and stamped it in a bold, black ink. I used some foam tape to adhere my little own beside my sentiment and my card was done!

Thanks for joining me today!
