Blue Flowers for Christmas

Hello dear frends, Martha Lucia here with you!

Blue Flowers for Christmas and flowers for everything! I love the stamps of Kennedy Grace Creations because they have an amazing collection of flowers and they are my favorites!  Today I have a project to share with you using the Grace's Little Note stamp set. Take a look at my card:

This is not a Christmas stamp set but with a little of creativity you can make whatever you want. And this is what I made. I just decided to stamp one of the flowers included on the stamp set Grace's Little Note with Versamark Ink and Gold Embossing Powder over Basic Black Cardstock and melted the powder. I tried not to connect the flowers so since I stamped one by one it was very easy to remove the powder when I didn't want to connect the flowers.

Then using Prismacolor Premier Color Pencils I colored each flower. In this opportunity I went with the blues and greens. I used two different blues and two different greens, but depending of your colo…

Hello there!  It's Cindy from In Love with Paper back on the blog with you today.  I've got a fun shaker card to share with you.

Since I wanted a square shaped shaker I went with a 5 inch square card base.  I recently got a new paper stack by The Paper Studio called The Mint Berry.  Love it with all of it's mint, pink and grey.  So good!  I picked a rose print for the background of the card and shaker.  I created the frame for the shaker using my Cricut and the Elegant Edges cartridge.


I've used some crafty foam tape to lift the frame to make the sequins move in the shaker.  I cut a piece of an acrylic sheet down to make the window of the shaker.  I've used Winter Mint & Watermelon Spritzer sequins mixes.  And I also used part of one of the sentiment stamps from the Friendship Blessings stamp set.  The whole sentiment didn't fit so I masked off the bottom words with some tape and only stamped the top word, Blessings on the frame.  I added some sequins in…

Dark Blue Flower Card

Hello, dear friends! Marina is here. I'd love to show you my new card made exclusively with Just a Rose Stamps. I chose dark blue cardstock and embossed flowers with white embossing powder. Then I decided to color flowers inside the white frame with pencils of several blue shades. Leaves I colored with two shades of green.


The sentiment YOU ARE SUCH A BLESSING I stamped on the white cardstock with black VersaFine ink and cut out.

I also used sequins from the Frosted Cupcackes and Leather and Pink Lace Mixes.



Be inspired!

Inspirational Verses

Hi there!  It's Brenda here today sharing a project I made a while back.  This card was created using wonderful products from the last Kennedy Grace release.  I absolutely loved the Inspirational Verses stamp set.  Here's the card that was made using a simple layout and some of the gorgeous Chantilly Cream sequins -



The verses were stamped on a scrap of watercolor paper along with several of the sweet little small flowers from Beautiful Bloom - Sweet Rose.  I got my watercolors out, dropped in some color and then fussy cut them.  I matted the sentiment on a scrap of grey cardstock and adhered the flowers.  The bottom mat was created with an embossing folder and a couple of cardstock scraps in appropriate colors were added on top.  The verse was layered next with the gorgeous sequins being the crowning touch!  Love sequins and especially these Chantilly Cream sequins!!!



I hope today's post inspires you to get out your stamps, papers and of course sequins to create something…

bidding a farewell

Happy Sunday everyone! Have a couple of cards to share with you today! Also a side note, today will be my last post here on the Kennedy Grace blog. I have a medical kiddo, and we have a very busy medical year ahead of us unfortunately, and need to focus on that and craft between when I can!! It has been such a privilege to get to work with Michelle and this crazy talented team of hers!!! Michelle thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!! So back to the cards because I know thats what you're really here for!


This sunflower! Need I say more!! Wanted to continue with my clean and simple look for all the flowers!! I stamped this image in a kraft coloured ink to keep it a little more soft looking then took my distress oxide inks and a water colour pen and added the yellow and green. And honestly thats all that I did! Quick simple card easy to replicate for sure!! I just love it and the simplicity of it! 

This card is similar to something Ive done before when this fabulous set…

Heartwarming Friendship

Hello everybody from sunny Australia. It's Donna, and I have a card to share with you. The cold has finally broken here, and I’m enjoying a hot day (from inside, and with a cool drink - I don’t really want to get hot; it’s just nice to know that I could if I wanted to!)
I really am loving this Friendship Blessings stamp set. I love the height on the flowers, and the beautiful clean lines.

I have googled crocuses to colour my image. They seem to come in two main colours - yellow and purple. I absolutely loved the yellow crocuses, but when I  looked in my stash of Copics, I had very little in the way of yellows, so I went with purple instead.
I coloured the image with Copics, and rather than blending them as I usually do, I built up layers of colour using thin sweeps of the marker, leaving the striations visible, just as they are on the real flowers. I really love this look, and these flowers really showed if off well.



The background was created by stamping the same image on a piec…

You are my Amazing

Hi everyone its Karen with you again today sharing a card with the sentiment "you are my amazing", featuring the Beautiful Blooms Sweet Rose stamp set.

This is one of my favourite KGC stamp sets.  You can make the rose as complicated or simple as you choose.  There is enough detail to even just stamp it uncoloured.  Today I coloured the actual bloom in pencil and took a fine black Copic liner and outlined the leaves and buds.  I shaded the leaves behind the main bloom in soft grey to lift the flower and left the rest uncoloured.  I actually really like this look and bonus is I really don't colour leaves that well.  Still practicing on those.  I wanted the sentiment to blend so chose a fine lined "You are My" stamped in black and die cut the amazing in a soft pink.  Its there but not overpowering the flower.

My final touch was a thin black and white stripe and a strip of pink matching the sentiment.  Usually my final touch would be sequins but not today.





Love …

My take on the Kennedy Grace November Mood Board

Hi everyone its Karen with you today sharing my take on the November Kennedy Grace mood board.

Have you seen it?  There's so much inspiration to choose from.  Just in case here is another look.  The colours are just so lush and pretty.


I chose the colours and the wreath as my inspiration and using the new stamp set called Kindness Medley I created my wreath.  I used a die cut as my base and to form the shape I wanted to use.  I then stamped and coloured my flowers using pencil before cutting them out close to the edge.  They are popped up on foam tape for some added dimension.  The "kindness is a beautiful thing" stamp is from the same set, simple stamped in the centre of the wreath.  I added some pearls and glitter with little loops of silver string to give a little more interest to the card.
My backing card stock is a subtle woodgrain to resemble a door on which the wreath is hanging.


I hope you will join in and use the mood board to create your next project.  Thanks …

Inspiring Kindness with Kennedy Grace Creations

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my second project for November with Kennedy Grace. I was having a little fun on my computer with my Silhouette software and designed this frame design, and used two of our stamp sets (Kindness Medley and Inspire) to complete my project.


First I printed this frame design on 110 lb cardstock with my Ink Jet printer. Next I used my Stamp Press and stamped the flowers from Kindness Medley in each of the corners, while also masking off the opposite boxes so that the flowers did not run into each other. I used Memento Love Letter to stamp the flowers.My next step was to stamp the sentiment in the middle oval from the Inspire stamp set. I used Memento Bahama Blue to stamp the sentiment, varying the strength of touch to leave an ombre' look.
From here after all ink was try I went into coloring mode using my Memento markers to color the flowers using Angel Pink, Dandelion, Tangelo, Cantaloupe and New Sprout.My final step was to cut the…

Grateful for our Friendship

Hello friends, it's Jill here on the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog to present a card I made using the Kennedy Grace Creations November Mood Board as my inspiration.  This card is called, Grateful for our Friendship, because life is truly so much better with friends!  It showcases how you can stretch your stamp sets to be used for the holidays even though they are not holiday stamps.



 I primarily used the KGC stamp set You Inspire meto make this card.  I first prepped my card panel with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink (DOI) by dragging the pad down in vertical stripes to create what looks like a weathered wood panel door.  I then lightly traced a circle the size that I wanted my wreath to be and then used 3 of the small images from the stamp set (small leafy branch x 2, and the 3 dots) to make my wreath.  I used mostly Distress Oxide inks, inking each stamp one color and stamping it around the circle, then changing colors and again stamping around the circle, turning the leafy branc…

Blessings To You

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for November. I love the beautiful Christmas colors.


This pic really inspired me to do gold embossing, which is one of my all time favorites. And here's the card that I made:


 I took a watercolor cardstock panel of size 4" x 5.25" and stamped the flowers from the Grace's Little Notes stamp set repeatedly after masking and embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I watercolored the flowers with Distress Ink Barn Door. For the leaves, I used Distress Ink Antique Linen. I love this color combination! For the sentiment, I used the "Blessings To You" from the Vintage Tea Cup stamp set and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I inked the edges of the top folding A2 card base with Distress Ink Barn Door and adhered the watercolor panel on to it using glue. That's it!

Lacy Sunflower Card

Hi everyone, Heidi here, today I have a water coloured card for you all, featuring the beautiful Kennedy Grace Creations “Sunflower“ stamp set. I choose the colours for today's project from this month's moodboard:

Let's get in the "Mood"...

Let's get in the "mood" and by mood, I mean the latest Mood Board from Kennedy Grace Creations for this month!!  The colors are just gorgeous.  See for yourself!



So now that you've seen my inspiration, let's get to it!

I have recently learned to make never ending cards.  There are tons of great tutorials already out there and I found several on YouTube.  These things are awesome and now I just can't stop!  I figured this was the perfect time to make another one AND use lots of lovely products from KGC.  I'm going to take you through panel by panel.


I used a dark red as my main card base for the entire card.  The patterned cardstock all comes from the same 6" x 6" paper pad "A Perfect Autumn" from Echo Paper.  The gold glitter cardstock is made by Die Cuts With a View.
For this panel I used the Believe sentiment from You Inspire Me and the flowers are from Grace's Little Note.  I heat embossed them with a gold embossing powder.  I …
