Hi it is Heidi

Hi everyone, Heidi here again: today I’ll show you my second project as a guest designer for Kennedy Grace Creations!

Today I will show you how to make three cards with the same design but every card has a totally different feel because of the different papers I used to color the stamped image on. This way you can stretch the use of the craft supplies you have to get a variation of different results. These cards mainly feature the Time to Blossomstamp set, as well as one of the sentiments from the Graces Little Notestamp set, both from Kennedy Grace Creations, and also the thank you sequin mix called Kennedy Grace” that you get free with purchase.

For my first card I stamped the flower image from the Time to Blossomstamp set on Canson Bright White heavy weight cartridge paper Versafine Onyx Blackink and I coloured the image with Faber Castell Polychromos.

As the final finishing touch for this card I used the sequins (black and iridescent pinkish white) and the micro-beads (iridescent pinkish white) from the free with purchase Kennedy Gracesequins mix.

For my second card I went through the same steps as with the first card but I stamped the flower on Strathmore Toned Graypaper. This creates a totally different feel I think. I colored the image with mainly Polychromos and an odd Holbein and Caran dDache Luminance pencil. The sentiment for this card is from the Graces Little  NoteStamp set.

And for todays last card I stamped the flower image on Strathmore Toned Tanpaper with Mementos Espresso Truffleink and colored with Polychromos and Caran dAche white. I wanted to do something different with the sentiment on this card so I stamped one of the sentiments from the Time to Blossomstamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger super fine detail Goldembossing powder.

I have to say I just love the font the sentiments in this stamp set come in and this flower was a lot of fun to colour!

If you are used to only coloring on white paper then its fun to try something different sometime. What you have to keep in mind is that when you color on grey or tan paper that you have to think in reverse: you accentuate the highlights with a lighter (for example white) pencil unlike when coloring on white paper where you leave the highlights the color of the paper.

If you would like to know more about how I made these cards and what exact colors I used then you can go over to my website for more details:

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.

On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
