Vintage Rose Birthday Card


Hello, Erica on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog today.

I reached for my favorite stamp, Beautiful Bloom Sweet Rose, it is such a stunning flower and I absolutely love it.

On a panel I had previously cut out using a stitched rectangle die in Strathmore Bristol Vellum water colour paper, I dusted lots of anti-static powder all over it and with VersaMark I stamped the first image just off the top right corner. I covered it with white embossing powder and used the heat gun to set the powder. Then I covered it with a mask and repositioned the stamp to add lots of the little blooms that poke out from the big flower. I did this twice on my main flower and then finally added one last one in the top left cover, this one I only stamped to show about half.

Once they were all stamped and heat embossed, I got my Zig markers out and chose Light Pink and Blush to create a soft, vintage look for the blooms and some greens for the leaves. When I colour with Zig markers, I always keep one of those paint brushes that are filled with water on hand as well as some tissues/kitchen roll to mop up any excess water or colour. Or to fix any messes I make.













I'm running low on birthday cards so I thought I'd best make the sentiment for this one 'Happy Birthday' and there is a very pretty font one in the stamp set which I went with. This I stamped up and heat embossed with rose gold embossing powder to go with the background card stock I decided to frame the panel with. I tend to put my cards together with foam tape to add height and dimension, and I did that here.

I didn't want to overcrowd the card too much with other stuff as I wanted to keep the focus on the colouring but a few sequins are never wrong. Right? Well, unfortunately I couldn't decide on which ones I wanted to use.... I might need an opinon: clear or rose gold? What do you think?






















I honestly couldn't pick so for now, I have kept it simple and here is the final card (for now anyway)

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone!! It's Berina here today with a Thank you card for you.


This looks like a triple stamping, but I used only 1 panel of colored images. I'll walk you through the steps. I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and stamped the sentiment from the Friendship Blessings stamp set in the center and stamped the flowers repeatedly around the sentiment. I colored the images with Copic markers. With a T-ruler and pencil, I drew rectangles where I wanted to cut and used my paper trimmer to cut. I did the same with a black cardstock panel of size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and used it to matte all the pieces of image panel. Then I adhered the 3 pieces adhered on to each other with foam tape to give some dimension. I added some Nuvo drops in color English Mustard.


I really love how this has turned out. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!


I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…
