Happy New Year from Kennedy Grace Creations!

Happy New Year to you all!  It's Brenda here, and I'm kicking off 2018 for Kennedy Grace Creations.  This month we are switching it up a bit and instead of having a mood board, we have a fun Tic Tac Toe Board for inspiration.


I picked the bottom row to inspire my card so I will be using buttons, sequins and flowers on my creation.  It seemed so perfect with all the wonderful flower sets and the awesome sequin collections.  I chose to use the beautiful stamp set Kindness Medley and a wonderful sequin collection called Enchanted Evening.  Here's what happened -


I stamped the flower (Tic) image three times on heavyweight vellum with VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I colored the flowers on the back of the vellum using Copic Markers.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaFine ink to get the nice dark image.  I love the size of this stamp which is also in the Kindness Medley set.  I put my ScanNCut to work cutting out the sentiment while I fussy cut the line of vellum stamped flowers.  I generally find vellum a challenge to work with because it can be difficult to hide  the adhesive.  No problem here, the coloring hit it nicely.


I added a few sequins (Tac) from the Enchanted Evening mix.  This mix is so nice!  I'm really wanting to make a shaker with it.  Just take a look at all these yummy sequins and beads -


To complete my row, I got out some tiny buttons (Toe) from my stash.  They matched the flower color so perfectly.  The buttons were tied with a thin gold twine and adhered to the card base to finish things off.


That's it for me today.  I wish all good things for you in the coming year.  Stay tuned for the good things planned here at Kennedy Grace Creations!  

Blessings,
Brenda

Don't you just love the beautiful Fall colors in this pic! Here's what I've made for you today:


 I stamped the flower from the Just A Rose stamp set with Memento London Fog using second generation stamping (for no-line coloring) and colored with Copics YR68, Y38, Y35 and YR31 for orange and YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for green.

I inked the left edge of the top folding A2 card base with the DI Spiced Marmalade and adhered the black panel on it. I mounted the rose with foam tape and adhered the sentiment with Sc…
