Thinking about you with Kennedy Grace Creations

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with my project inspiration for Kennedy Grace Creations using the Tic Tac Toe board. I sure would love to see you playing along and posting your projects over on our Facebook Fan page

Using the Tic Tac Toe board below, I went with a straight line down the left side using Die Cuts, Twine and Buttons. 
The stamp set I chose to use is Sing A New Song, not sure about you but I am ready for winter to be over. I am a Florida girl, and do not care for cold weather. And the last couple weeks has been too cold for my bones. So this stamp set made me happy for my favorite season of the year. 
First I stamped the tree image with the hanging bird house. I used masking fluid to mask it off and spritzed with Summer Sky Shimmer Spray from Imagine Crafts. I removed the masking fluid and went about stamping the remainder of my card topper.
I used Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp the flowers, and the tree, and Memento Dandelion to stamp the sun.
I used Rich Cocoa and Desert Sand Memento Markers to color the tree, and Cottage Ivy with Pear Tart to color the leaves. The Bird House is Desert Sand, and Rhubarb Stalk. 
The sun is colored with Spectrum Noir FL3.
A bow made of twine to appear to be wrapping the tree, button brads for the flowers, and stitched dies for the land completed the requirements, then I went for one more square the rhinestones.

The idea for this card and the use of the "Thinking about you" sentiment, came about because just this week we had National Guard Troop 128 deploy overseas, and that always makes me think of the song "Tie A Yellow Ribbon" Some say the song is about a guy getting out of jail others say military, I just remember loving the song as a child and we had a ribbon out when my uncle came home from overseas.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and look forward to seeing what you have to make.

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.
