Blue and Silver

Hi everyone, Heidi here, today I would like to show you a mood board inspired card!
I don’t use blue as a flower colour very much but on this card I really love the end result.
This is the mood board all the KGC Design Team Members are working with this month:

To get this card started I stamped the flower image from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Kindness Medley“ stamp set onto some Canson 1557 (180 gr./extra white) paper using Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and my MISTI.
Then I coloured the flowers with my Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils in the numbers 151, 157, 112, 165, 187 and 186 and the one Holbein Artists‘ Colored Pencil in the colour Lavender Blue (from the Pastel Tone set that you can buy on Ebay).When the colouring was done I fussy cut the image out using my Fiskars scissors and leaving a small white edge.

For my sentiment I choose one of my favourite sentiments from Kennedy Grace Creations and it’s from the “Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose“ stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on the back side of some white linen textured card stock using the same Versafine ink and then I die cut around the sentiment using one of the dies in the Spellbinders “Victorian Tags“ die set (for this I used the smallest part of one of the three two layer die sets that come in this set). For my second die cut layer (the tag itself) I used some kraft coloured card stock and edged a little with Memento “Rich Cacao“ ink. I adhered the sentiment onto the tag using one millimetre thick foam tape.

Next I started working on my background panel: I die cut one rectangle mat from some matching dark blue slightly shimmery linen textured card stock, then I die cut a slightly smaller rectangle mat from some white linen textured card stock. These two layers I adhered together using liquid glue and then I adhered the combined mats to a kraft coloured card base (that I also edged with the same brown Memento ink) using one millimetre thick foam tape.
The silver lacy background is created by die cutting some silver glitter paper twice with the Crealies Decorette XL die with number CLDRXL10. I tore of a piece of the top part and then adhered first one part to the white/blue background combo using Ranger Medium Matte and then slightly overlapping adhering the second part also using Ranger Medium Matte. Now it looks like one piece of background lace work. Gorgeous, right?

To finish the card all I have to do now is to adhere the sentiment on the card using one millimetre thick foam tape and then the coloured flower image using about three layers of one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that finishes today’s card! I wish you’ll a creative day!

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 …

October Mood Board with LeeAnn

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with my take on the Kennedy Grace Designs October Mood Board. If you are not familiar with mood boards they are great jumping points for a project, whether you use one of the images as the inspiration or the color palette alone. 

For my project today I decided to use the color palette, starting with the black and going from there. Using the Just A Rose Stamp Set, I stamped the Rose image using VersaMark clear ink, I then sprinkled Perfect Pearls in Copper over the image and brushed off any excess. I then fussy cut around the image to use it for my project.  I then prepared my layers for the card base. my main base is Kraft cardstock in a2 size. my next layer which is purple was trimmed to 4" x 5.25", and then the green trimmed to 3.75" x 5". I used Tear Tape to adhere the layers together as well as the rose. I used a piece of black cardstock to make a fish tail banner, I stamped the sentiment using Memento T…
