Hi there! Cammy here with the third of my Framed Florals. I needed some new artwork for my bathroom wall and the beautiful floral images from Kennedy Grace Creations worked perfectly!

KGC - Framed Floral 3

Just as I did with my other two florals, which you can find HERE and HERE, I stamped my flower from Loving Mom in VersaMark and embossed with black. I used Gelatos to once again watercolor my flowers. It was really a quick & simple project. Since they were in frames, there are no embellishments or additional layers.

And, here they are, hanging in my bathroom:

Please excuse the light glare on the left! I love how they turned out and this was a great way to give the bathroom a tiny makeover!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you again soon!

Hey there!  Cindy here, and I've got a fun thank you card to share today.  I've used the wonderful Kennedy Grace Creations Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose stamp set.  And, I've also used the awesome sequin mixes Frosted Cupcakes and Leather & Pink Lace.  I've created a fun empty/negative space on the front of my cardbase.  I just cut 1 1/2 inches out of the front panel.  And then I used the rose images to attach the two pieces back together. 

And this is more of a side view.

Hi! It's Rachel from RBergfeld Card Designs with another Copic colored clean and simple card.

I started my card by cutting a panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock with a stitched edge die. (All supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.) I used my MISTI to stamp my floral image from Grace's Little Notes to the right side of the card and then carefully colored my image. I used V15, V12, BV00, and BV0000 to color the purple parts. The center of each flower is simply Y04. The leaves were colored with YG01, YG13, and YG17. These are some of my favorite color combinations! I finished off my image by outlining it with C3, C1, and C00. The addition of the gray colors actually makes the image seem to pop off the white piece. That's my little tip for you today!

I adhered my white panel onto a white card base with some Be Creative Tape. The reason I started with a panel is that any bleeding onto the back of the panel will be hidden by the card base when it's fully assembled. This way, I don't have to worry about having all sorts of different weights of cardstock for when I'm coloring.

I finished the card by stamping the sentiment in Versamark on a piece of purple cardstock and heat embossing in white. I trimmed the the piece down and used my scissors to add the flagged end. The sentiment is adhered with foam tape for a bit of dimension on an otherwise flat card. I added a few sequins from a couple of Kennedy Grace Creations mixes - the purple from Morning Glory and the clear from Iced Berries and Mint Julip.

Hi, Rachel from RBergfeld Card Designs here today! I'm back again with another beautiful card inspired by the lovely Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose stamp set. This time, I got back to my roots and used my Copics!

I started by cutting my banner using a stitched die and then I used my Misti to stamp my rose at the top. I colored my rose in yellow tones because I simply love yellow flowers. There's something so fun and sunshine-y about a yellow flower! I finished off my banner by heat embossing my sentiment in gold embossing powder. I prepared my card base by stamping the Fine Chevron Background stamp in Versamark. I love the watermark effect you get by using Versamark this way! I used foam tape to adhere my banner and then added a sprinkling of the brand new Mocha Vanilla Latte sequins by Kennedy Grace Creations. I just love how the rose seems to pop off the card!

I hope you love this card as much as I do! If you're interested in any of the products I've used, follow the links below to purchase them!

Hello, everyone! It's Rachel from RBergfeld Card Designs and I'm here to share a fun project with you using the brand new stamp set Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose.

If you're at all familiar with my work, you'll know that I'm typically a colorist (I love my Copics!), but I wanted to break out of that box and show you just how versatile this stamp set can be.

I started by cutting a panel of white cardstock to just smaller than a typical card (5 1/4 by 4 inches). I used my MISTI to stamp the image in Versamark ink and then heat embossed it in white. I felt like the upper right corner was a little empty, so I stamped the smaller blossoms again to extend the image a little. I got out my distress inks and blended them into the panel. I used Abandoned Coral, Carved Pumpkin, and Squeezed Lemonade for this particular card. I love how bright and beautiful the colors are and distress inks blend like butter! I splashed a few splatters onto the card in each of the inks to add a little bit of interest in that white portion.

I created my sentiment by die-cutting the hello four times from white cardstock. I carefully glued them all together to create some dimension. I adhered the panel to a card base and then adhered my sentiment on top. To finish the card, I pulled out my sequins and picked a few clear sequins from a couple of the Kennedy Grace Creations mixes. I was going to use some colored sequins, but when I placed them on the card, I felt like they were too distracting and drew your eye away from the gorgeous image, so I just stuck with the clear for this one.
