January Designer's Choice card - Grace's Flowers

Hello 2018!  It's Jill here on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog back from a little medical LOA and excited to be able to craft again.  My card uses some lovely flower images from KGCs Grace's Little Note stamp set.  As I've enjoyed a little sunshine these last few days, I felt like creating something somewhat simple with light, happy colors. 
I first stamped the 3 floral images onto some smooth Bristol cardstock with my MISTI so I could get the spacing right.  I then used 2 different border dies by MFTs to create the multiple-bordered look. 

I inlaid the central flower panel into its matching border die cut, then used some fun Gold Foil cardstock by DCWV on the outside die cut frame.  Since I was going to use some Nuvo Jewel 
Drops on my flower images, I decided to adhere all the layers first before coloring, as the drying time can take as much as 24 hours.  I chose a light pink watercolor Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! as my base layer to coordinate with one of the flower colors and make a nice frame of color around all the white going on in the card.


Finally I get to the coloring, my favorite part!  I decided to use some markers that I'd not used in a while, the Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  I chose 2 greens for the leaves and 3 soft pastel colors in yellow, orange, and pink.  After my coloring was done, I picked out coordinating colors of Nuvo Jewel Drops (Limoncello, Orange Marmalade, and Rosewater).  I applied the drops somewhat generously, as I wanted dimension.  Then I set my project aside to dry.  I returned the next morning and adhered the panel to a standard A2 side folding card base.  Project complete!

I hope you enjoyed my card idea.  I've linked the Kennedy Grace Creations products to the store for your convenience and if you'd like a full products list or see other card creations of mine, please visit my blog at www.jktayloredcards.com.  The most comprehensive collection of my cards are found on Instagram as jktaylor911.

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.
