Its Karen here with my Kennedy Grace post and today I have made a cheerful little card using the "You Inspire Me" stamp set.  I used some of the little floral stamps around the Grateful sentiment.  I stamped and fussy cut some extra little flowers and popped them up of foam before adding the "for our friendship" sentiment on top.  A couple of strips of coloured paper to match the stamping to finish it off.



A simple pretty clean and layered card using my new Stamp Perfect from Hampton Crafts.  I have coveted a Misti from the first time I saw Kathy from the Daily Marker use one a long time ago.  I profess to being a real dummy when it comes to stamping I have to stamp the image several times before I get it right and sentiments...suffice to say I have screwed up many cards because of stamping a sentiment.  But the mini Misti retails here for around $100.00,  thats a lot right.

When a local store advertised the new Stamp Perfect for half the price and free shipping I just couldn't resist.  I will claim its the best $50.00 of craft tools I have ever spent.  I love it and would never have been able to pull off a card like this without it.

  1. Love your Graceful card and that is a perfect moniker for it! I agree about the MISTI!! I got mine and then all my girlfriends were "borrowing" it until Christmas when their loving family got them one! Great tool and can't believe we stamped before owning one! Super tool!

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!

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…
