Grateful

Hi there everyone!  Welcome to the beautiful month of October!!  I'm kicking off the month with a brand new Mood Board to get your creative juices flowing.  Take a look at this fabulous inspiration picture.

Isn't it just gorgeous??  So many things in this picture just jump out at me and it was hard to decide which direction to go.  I chose to work with the Beautiful Blooms-Sweet Rose stamp set.  It's so pretty and verstile!  I stamped the rose image twice on a white piece of cardstock with black ink.  Then I was stumped.  Yep.  Total creative block!  I hate when that happens.  I think the wide open white spaces cause my mind to go blank sometimes.  Anywho, I decided to walk away and come back later.

During my break I watched a few YouTube card videos and scoured through Pinterest.  My almost favorite thing to do when I'm not crafting.  Ah ha, I saw something that got me thinking.  I returned to my desk.  I grabbed a scrap piece of transparency I had laying around and two circle punches.  I punched out two different sized circles.  I browsed through my Distress Oxide inks and picked out Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and Seedless Preserves.  I randomly started applying the colors through the stencil I had created.

When I was happy with the amount of color, I gave it a quick spritz with water and blotted it dry.  After I let it sit for a few minutes, I added the Grateful sentiment from the You Inspire Me set.  I also added splatters with gold metallic paint and black.  Again, I let it dry for a few minutes.  I dug through my (ahem) extensive die collection for just the right rectangle.  Love the stitching details on it!

I also went through my card stock collection to figure out what color to use.  I decided to show the green some love since I didn't apply as much of it on the white base.  I think it helps to tie it together a little better.  I didn't like it plain so I hunted around to find a background stamp just to give it that little something extra.  I adhered the white panel to the card base with foam tape.  For the finishing touch I added Nuvo Crystal drops in coordinating colors.

Without any further delay, here is the completed project!


I hope I have managed to send a little inspiration your way.  I encourage you to make something fun using the Mood Board inspiration picture.  We'd love to see you share it over on the Kennedy Grace Creations Fan page or on Instagram.  Or anywhere else you'd like to share!  Add #KennedyGraceCreations to help us find your lovely work.

Catch ya later!

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone!! It's Berina here today with a Thank you card for you.


This looks like a triple stamping, but I used only 1 panel of colored images. I'll walk you through the steps. I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and stamped the sentiment from the Friendship Blessings stamp set in the center and stamped the flowers repeatedly around the sentiment. I colored the images with Copic markers. With a T-ruler and pencil, I drew rectangles where I wanted to cut and used my paper trimmer to cut. I did the same with a black cardstock panel of size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and used it to matte all the pieces of image panel. Then I adhered the 3 pieces adhered on to each other with foam tape to give some dimension. I added some Nuvo drops in color English Mustard.


I really love how this has turned out. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.

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…
