Almost one layer card with Roses


Hi everyone, Heidi here on the blog! Today I have this easy and fun roses card for you all:

I started this card by stamping the roses from the awesome Kennedy Grace Creations “Splendid Roses” stamp set onto Cornwall Aquarel paper (Grain Fin, bright white) after die cutting a stitched rectangle with one of my nesting dies. For stamping I used Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and my MISTI stamping tool (this aquarel paper is fairly smooth but to get even black lines I needed to ink up my stamp several times).

Next I started colouring the image with my Gansai Tambi 36 watercolour set, water and a regular brush. I used the following colours:  33 / 31 / 53 and 58. After all the watercolouring was dry I created some lighter accents with a white Uni-Ball Signo pen.

Then I started working on the background: I created a nice damask background with a foam applicator tool, Distress Ink in the colour “Weathered Wood” and a stencil from Scrapberry’s called “Damascus”, going lighter towards the edges of the rectangle panel. I also mixed the same colour Distress ink with some water, applying it with the same brush, making the edges around the roses darker to create the illusion that the roses are in front of the damask background. I adhered this panel to a slightly larger matching green die cut rectangle panel with liquid glue after edging the green panel with some Distress ink in the colour “Mowed Lawn”.


For the sentiment I stamped one of the sentiments from the Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set called “Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose” onto some black card stock with Versamark ink and I heat embossed with Ranger “White” Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Next I die cut the sentiment with the smallest die in the Lawn Fawn “Everyday Sentiment Banners” die set and adhered the banner to the panel with the roses with Ranger medium matte, folding it to the back on the right hand side and adhering it to the back with regular tape.Then I adhered the combined rectangle panels to a white linen textured card base with one millimetre thick foam tape. 

I finished this card with some of the gorgeous Kennedy Grace Creations “Moonbeams” sequins (adhered with Ranger medium matte).

And that’s it for today, I hope you enjoyed!

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…
