Mom's Vintage Tea card

Hello, Beverly, here again using Kennedy Grace Creations Vintage Cup, one of my very favorites!



  I am delighted to be a designer for Kennedy Grace Creations and am here today for a card I made with the Vintage Tea Cup stamp set. I just love using this set! It is so fun to decide what colors I am going to make the china!! This was to match with the papers from Graphic 45 that include tea images so went with the blues and pinks. Can you image if you could just find sky blue china to have coffee or tea in?! That would be wonderful!! 
   I have only one mother left, my mother-in-law. She loves to have her coffee and tea, so that is what I thought about when I made this card for her. My husband loved how it turned out, as well. Hope it delights you as much as it did us. 
Directions: Layering the card front with Medium Blue vellum, and the Graphic 45 Botanical tea pattern papers so that the blue peaked out on either side. Stamped and die cut all images and then fussy cut them all out. I always use my MISTI now and do multiple images to have ahead!! ;)  Then I matched my Copic marker colors with that of the Botanical Tea's. Using the dual colors of each, I shaded to have it look like the light was from above. I die cut the doily out of sparkle vellum and glued it and the tea pot down to the top papers. I added pop squares behind the tea cup, and placed it adjacent to the pot. Added the other die cut and bow to add balance to the bottom.
Supplies: Kennedy Grace Creations Vintage Tea Cup stamp set; X-cut Vintage heart doily; Copic Markers: B95, B21, RV21, RV02. Sparkle vellum; Medium Blue vellum; Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Sweet Chamomile; Die cut "Mom" from my stash; Memento Tuxedo black ink pad; Neenah Bright White cardstock; MISTI; Fiskars scissors.

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…
