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.

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …
