New release blog hop with Erica

Good Morning Crafty Friends and Welcome to Kennedy Grace Creations September Blog Hop!
We are so happy you have stopped by and joined us for this very special event!

Our newest release of Stamp and Sequins is now live and available for purchase in the store!

Here is what I have created for you

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!

Right, I'm skipping ahead a little bit here, let's go back to the beginning. I have used the Kindness Medley stamp set which I stamped with VersaMark on smooth black card stock and heat embossed it with Ranger Inks Gold Tinsel which is nice and sparkly. Then I jumped in the deep end with my pencils and started colouring. As the card stock is black I started with white pencil all over the petals to make sure the other colours popped. I went for teal blue colours, which I thought was a nice contrast to the gold and black. Plus I love blue. In pretty much every shade. I coloured all the petals and the leaves, and this took me quite a while but boy was it worth it. I love this look! 

As I didn't want to take away too much focus from the flowers themselves, I decided to keep the sentiment super-simple and just stamp 'Kindness' and heat emboss that in smooth gold embossing powder on a small banner. This along with a sparky gold stitched rectangle die to frame the card, was all I added. I thought that was very restrained of me, I'm usually an 'let's add all the sequins and layers and a bit of this and that' kind of gal. 

Well, with that, I'm all done! 

We will be giving away a prize package to one lucky winner.

  7. Erica, I had to chuckle when I read your post. I got a set of Prismacolors last Christmas and just can't bear to use them. Part of it is they are just so pretty, right, all perfect and gorgeous (a bit intimidating too, I agree). Your card is gorgeous and if you were intimidated, you certainly shouldn't be now!

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…

Birthday Tea Party

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for December. I love the beautiful festive colors.

I've been wanting to use the Vintage Tea Cups stamp set the moment I got it I love the tea cup stamp. As soon as I saw this moodboard, I was fixated on using that stamp set.

I stamped the border image from the stamp set using Memento London Fog on the top left and lower right. I stamped the kettle and the cup with the same ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. I used BG15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal colored part and C7, C3, C1 and 0 for the remaining. I decided to add some grounding for the kettle and cup with the grey color. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.
