Grace's Bouquet

Jill here on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog with an elegant Get Well card featuring the stamp set Grace's Little Note.  Although I used another stamp set on this card, I highlighted the Kennedy Grace Creations stamp by coloring it in with bright, vivid Copic markers.  I left the other stamping in  neutral tones or very pale blue to keep the focus on our flowers.  I used a lot of masking on this card, heat- embossing with Ranger's Liquid Platinum embossing powder of the background floral image from The Ton's stamp, Peony Bouquet and then for the crystal bowl from the same stamp set, I used MFT's Hybrid ink in both Grout Grey and Blu Raspberry so that I could add additional Copic coloring for shading and the water in the bowl.

Masking of the flowers that allowed me to heat-emboss around them.
For added interest, I partial die cut the crystal bowl using the matching die, added some Fun Foam to the back to give it dimension, then adhered it on top of the card base that I had prepped with a layer of embossed dots onto some Crafter's Companion Shimmering Cardstock in Silver Starlight (almost the exact color of the embossing powder I had used on the card).  I also used some Adhesive Glitter Tape in purple from The Ton on both sides of the crystal bowl to tie into the color of my flowers and accentuate the layers of the card.

Final touches included using At You Spica yellow glitter pen for the center of the flowers, clear Wink of Stella on the lines of the crystal bowl, and lastly some light blue adhesive pearls from Hero Arts added to the details in the crystal bowl.  I also used some Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass inside of the flowers with a little bit of water spattering as well for interest.  The Sentiment was from Grace's Little Note stamp set as well.

I hope you liked my card.  I think it shows just how versatile those little flowers from Grace's Little Note are.  If you'd like to see more of my creations, please visit my blog site at www.jktayloredcards.com or my Instagram account jktaylor911 which has the largest collection of my work, or Jill Taylor on Facebook.

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…
