Beautiful Rose Cards with Heat Embossing and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers


Hello friends. Meg here with some BEAUTIFUL and EASY floral, rose cards! This gorgeous card trio was created with the Kennedy Grace Creations stacked stitched rectangle dies, stacked stitched scalloped rectangle dies, Just a Rose clear stamps and/or Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose stamps.

Do you see how perfectly these rose stamps fit into our layering dies??? It's a perfect pair!

To start, I die-cut two stitched rectangles and one scalloped rectangle using our wafer thin die sets and Strathmore Bristol smooth paper. I then stamped the roses, inside the white Bristol panels, using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I coated each image with clear embossing powder and heat set to a smooth, raised finish.

To color I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers without any water! They blend together alone like a dream! For the leaves (on all 3 cards) I used only 2 Zig markers; 053 Yellow Green and 047 May Green. See below for exact rose color combinations.


To color this two-toned Just a Rose stamped image I only used 3 markers! I used 051 Lemon Yellow, 050 Yellow and 021 Light Carmine.


For the yellow Just a Rose stamped image I used 051 Lemon Yellow, 050 Yellow and 052 Bright Yellow. 


The red rose was colored with the following Zig brush marker colors; 021 Light Carmine, 029 Geranium Red and 024 Wine Red. If you notice this rose is slightly different than the other two. This is the Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose stamp set.

All of these Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker colors blended like a dream! I colored all three of these images in less than 30 minutes!!!

The last step was adhering the colored panels to other black, die cut backgrounds then adding to a card base. The two die sets work so beautifully together and make designing a card so fast and easy!!! I highly recommend them!!!!

I hope everyone enjoyed my trio of roses today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Please leave me some love if you enjoyed this post!

Matching Poinsettia Card and Tag

Rachel here today with a card featuring a peek at a future set.


I decided to create a matching card and tag set to use this Christmas season. The Poinsettias are gorgeous and so much fun to color!


Right now, these images are in digital format, so I arranged them in a Word document and then printed them out on some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used my KGC stitched rectangle die to cut out the portion of the images that I wanted to use and then used my Copics to color them in and added shadows around them. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment on top of my panel and then heat embossed in gold. I adhered my panel to a Fog Gray card base to add a little contrast.


Next up, I used a tag die to cut out another image for the front of my tag and then used the same process to color it in. I cut another tag from some white cardstock and then heat embossed my sentiment on it. I adhered the sentiment to the back of my poinsettia image to create a completed tag which also hid any bleeding from…

Counting Down!

Hi its Karen on the blog with you today.

I think I may be in denial about Christmas.  It just seems to be sneaking up very very fast.  I know I have loads to do and really need to get going. Hopefully posting this Christmas Ornament may just help. This super cute little image from Kennedy Grace Creations is such a joy to colour and even though he's a christmas critter I think he could be used all year round on projects.  I used a die cut from Frantic Stamper Inc to cut the ornament in very sparkly paper.  Then popped the image up on foam.  Added some silver twine and there you have a super cute and easy ornament to adorn the tree or a special gift tag.  I think these would look lovely against shiny white wrapping paper.

I know it looks huge in the photo but its approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches in size.


Have a great day!
