Beautiful Blooms

Hello crafty friends!  Martha Lucia here with you. Today I prepared a project with one of the fabulous stamp set from Kennedy Grace Stamps.

I used the Just a Rose Stamp set with color pencils and some die cuts. Take a look at my card:

I stamped the flowers using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink over a whisper white layer of cardstock. I pasted this layer directly over the card base hat is whisper white too. Then I colored the flowers with Prismacolor Premier color pencils and when I was satisfied with coloring I created a frame using rectangle scallop die cut and decorated paper.

I pasted the frame a little moved to create the idea of movement using double sided foam tape. In a separate piece of whisper white cardstock I stamped two sentiments included on the same stamp set  Just a Rose Stamp set using two different colors of Memento Ink, Lilac Lavender and Grape Jelly.

I cut the sentiments and pasted over each flower using double sided foam tape or dimensionals. This stamp set includes a co…

Believe in the Magic of Christmas

Hello my fellow crafters!  Jillhere on the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog sharing another December card creation.  As December winds to a close, I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas with family and/or friends.  Although Christmas is now past, I made this card last month before I realized my post would be after Christmas! To me however, Christmas is not just one day, but the beginning of forever (if you believe).  And as many crafters do, they make Christmas cards all year 'round.  So this is especially for those of you who never get tired of seeing or making Christmas cards.
You may recognize the wreath element in my card and the background technique I used on this card.  I used an Antique LinenDistress Oxide pad and dragged it down the length of the cardstock several times to create a wooden door or panel look.  Then, I wanted to show how you can totally change the look of your card/wreath simply by changing up your ink colors (see my November Mood Board card for comparison, a…

Holiday Thanks

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today. I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. I have made a thank you card with traditional Christmas colors. Here's my card for today.

I stamped the image from Grace's Little Note stamp set 4 times and colored it with Copic markers. I used R59, R29, R35 and R32 for the red and G99, YG67, YG63 and YG61 for the green. I fussy cut all 4 of them and colored the edge with a black marker. This step is really important. I also removed the tiny leaf on the ends. Now I took a top folding A2 cardbase and adhered ScorTape of thickness 1/8" on the left end and adhered gold deco foil on it. Then I arranged the 4 cut pieces to form a semi-circle and adhered them with Brutus Monroe glue. I gold embossed the sentiment "Heartfelt Thanks" from the Friendship Blessings stamp set using Hero Arts gold embossing powder.

Hope you are inspired by this card. Please share your creations with us and tag us using #kennedygracecreations in Facebook o…

Layered vintage roses Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Heidi here! First of all I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, I hope you have lots of laughter with family and friends during this holiday season. 

Flower box

I know Christmas is on everyone's mind right now but I'm bringing you some floral delights today!   I thought it was about time I make a box card and I knew just which flowers to use!   Without any delay, here is my first picture of today's project.

Isn't it just lovely??  All of the flowers are from the same stamp set --Friendship Blessings.  The set comes with the main cluster of three images but I wanted some single flowers.  With a bit of creative masking and delicate cutting, I managed to get several "single" flowers to use for this project. 

I stamped the flowers several times on Cryogen White cardstock.  I used Copic markers to color all of them in with a range that matched the floral paper I used.  I also colored a piece of cardstock in the same green I used for the stems and cut out several greenery pieces with a die.

I made the box from Stampin' Up Blushing Bride cardstock and stamped a background design with Lost Lagoon ink.  The floral paper …

Blue is the Mood

Love and Laughter,

Hi crafters! Team member Monica here sharing my card I created using "Grace Little Note" this gorgeous December Mood Board.  Love all the blues and silver perfect for Christmas right?!!

To created my card I stamp the image twice to form a sort of oval to where there was a place perfect for a sentiment.  I then used a diecut from Frantic Stamper to diecut the "bloom" sentiment piece using some gold paper.  The oval is cut using Spellbinder oval dies layered with white and the gold to match the mood board. I hope everyone enjoyed my post and I wish everyone a Happy Holiday!!!

Sparkling Blessing Vintage Tea Card

For today's post I wanted to share how to make a glitzy card for the holidays or a special birthday like this one I made. I started with the Vintage Tea Cup Set, which as you know is my favorite of all the Kennedy Grace Creations and was my first stamp set of theirs. The sentiment reads: Blessings to you. You're as special as a vintage tea. Using Neenah Crest White in 80 pound cardstock, I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Ink which is compatible with coloring with Copic Markers. To make the card more luxurious I used Deep Red paired with a hot pink deep red. Markers used were: R29, RV29, RV13. Further, to give the leaves a deep romantic yet vintage feel I pair deep olive greens with blue green: YG63, YG67, BG13. Then to add shadows and make it look three dimensional: C1, and C3. 

  Next, I chose the newest Spellbinders Chantilly Lace collection called Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame by Becca Feeken, to frame the beautiful tea set. Using the Tonic Mirror Gold cardstock really mad…

Merry Christmas

Hello!  It's Cindy from In Love with Paper back on the blog with you today.  I've made a card with a tag on it.  This will be my last Christmas card for this year.
Basically, inspiration struck when I looked at my messy desk of scraps from previous projects..LOL!  Anyone else have a seriously messy work space right now??!!  Anyway, I saw the red plaid paper and the black and that decided my color palette for this card.  I wanted to add a bunch of glitter to my flower from the Friendship Blessings stamp set.  So, I reached for the Christmas Red Stickles.  

A close up of the glittery goodness :-)
I added some green crinkle ribbon to the tag and let it drape down behind the flowers.  I fussy cut the flowers and popped them up.  I also added some KGC Blackbird sequins mix to finish off the card.  
Thanks for stopping by KGC today.  I hope I've inspired you to make something fun today.
I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, Wonderful New …

Flower Sketchbooks

Hello! Marina is here! I prepared for you two flower sketchbooks with kraft paper inside. It's a nice idea for a little gift for friends made with love by your own hands.

At first I made two sketchbooks from kraft paper and heavywight cardstock. I just scored 12 sheets of Half Letter paper in the middle and got 24 kraft pages. Then I scored Half Letter cardstock and got the heavywight cover. Now we should put it all together. One sketchbook I sewed with sewing machine and the other one bundled with stapler. Both methods work great. You just need long stapler to get to middle of the book. The last thig to do is to trim the ready sketchbook. You can do it with a craft knife for example.
Now lets switch to stamping! I stamped all the space with flowers from Graces Little Note and Just a Rose Sets. To fill the spaces between flowers I used a black marker and drew some dots.
From the kraft cardsock I die cut the banner and stamped sentiment from the Friendship Blessings! And added a l…

A Christmas Note

It's Brenda back with another share.  Can you believe, if you celebrate Christmas, only 6 more days.  I have to admit, I still have a few cards to post tomorrow but thankfully they were all done awhile back.  I'm sharing one with you today that I made using Grace's Little Note from the Kennedy Grace Creations store.

Grace's Little Note
For this card I used a masking technique to stamp the flowers along the diagonal and then fussy cut them along the leafy edge.  I LOVE fussy cutting and find it to be a wonderful way to just tune out and enjoy my crafty time.  The flowers were colored with Copic markers with a little Stickles added to the center and then scattered for some shine.  I chose to color them red and green for that traditional Christmas feel but I tell you these Grace's Little Note flowers would work well in any color for any occasion .

The sentiments were added, one die cut the other heat embossed.  Here it is from another angle.

Be sure to stay tuned to t…

Watercolour Hydrangeas

Hello crafty friends!

It's Donna here, and I've been playing with watercolours and the beautiful Hydrangea stamp from Kennedy Grace Creations.

You may not know this, but back in the day before I had time to make cards, I was the head of the Japanese department at our local Grammar School. One of my ex students came to visit me the other day, and we got to talking about card making, and ending up having a crafty session with watercolour backgrounds.  It is so lovely to have students who see you as more than just a means to an end, as I worked very hard for my students, especially the senior students, who needed a lot of extra support.

This card today uses one of the backgrounds that I made with her. I just love the loose look of watercolour that continues 'outside the lines'. The image is stamped in Versamark ink.

To make the sentiment, I ran the painted panel through my die cutting machine with a happy die, being very careful to keep all the small pieces from inside t…

December Mood Board

Its Karen with you on the blog today and I am sharing with you my card inspired by the December Mood Board.  Its utterly gorgeous.  Lots of blues and silver with a touch of camel to get your creativeness going.  Be sure to look around the blog for lots of gorgeous projects from the rest of the Talented Design Team.  Just incase you want another look here is the mood board.

For my card I used the colour scheme of various shades of blues with a touch of camel and silver.  I also took inspiration from the decoration in the bottom left corner.  I stamped  the Beautiful Bloom Hydrangea onto a scrap of card and coloured it in pencil.  I then cut the tag placing the image where I wanted it before stamping my sentiment.  
I cut another tag in a contrasting colour to place behind the tag with the image.  The ribbon is threaded through the tag and tied in place with some camel coloured hemp cord.  The top tag is popped up on foam for some dimension.  The final touch was to scatter some Moonbeam…


Hello there!  It's Cindy from In Love with Paper back on the blog with you today.  We are working with this wonderful mood board for the first part of December.  Isn't it fabulous?!  It's not your traditional red and green you see so much of this time of year.  I think that's what makes it so fun!
The card I came up with could be for a birthday, anniversary or even Christmas.  I used the Splendid Rose stamp set.  I colored it using Distress Crayons.  I'm really loving them lately.  I just apply the crayon with my fingers and smudge and blend the colors.  I just keep going until I like the look and brightness of the colors.  It's very fun and relaxing.  Kind of like an adult style of finger paint.  LOL!  And then I paired the rustic wood grain cardstock and the foil snowflake papers for the background.  I love to use contrasting papers.  

I finished it with a button, some glitter twine, a jingle bell and a snowflake charm.  
Thanks for stopping by today.  I hop…
