Hello, hello! Erica on the blog today with my last post for October. I can't believe it's nearly November, this year has seriously just whooshed past!

My card today is a bit of a "I'm in denial it's almost winter" card, using bright summery colours. It turns out I seem to have also used the colours of our October mood board on closer inspection. Maybe my subconscious is actually more onboard with the changing seasons than my conscious self? Who knows? Anyway, let's get to it shall we before this get's all psycho-analysing, shall we?

I started by cutting out an A2 stitched panel in Copic friendly card stock before stamping up the flowers from the Kindness Medley stamp set. One bunch of flowers in the bottom right corner and one in the top left corner. Then got my copic markers out, I used various yellow and orange ones to give my flower petals depth and highlights. For the leaves, I use a few different green ones to make sure they didn't end up lo…

Shaking Heart

Karen here with you today and I am sharing a card using the newly released Seaside Breeze and Jack Frost sequin mixes.  I haven't made a shaker in a bit as to be honest I find the foam layer never goes how I want it too so I thought I would try these plastic pouches and let me tell you they are just so easy I love them.

For my card I started with a design paper to match the sequins I was going to use.  I die cut the heart shape and placed a complimentary paper in behind.  I then filled the shaker with a mix of Seaside Breeze and Jack Frost sequins.  The sentiment comes from the new stamp set called Friendship Blessings which I stamped and die cut.  I then used some orange card stock to add some accents and bring it all together.

Friendship Blessings with LeeAnn

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here on the Kennedy Grace blog with a fun water color card that I made using the new Friendship Blessings stamp set and a few sequins from the Autumn Blessings Mix

The process I used to make this card is as follows: Using VersaMark I stamped the image on watercolor cardstock.Using Imagine Clear embossing powder and my heat tool I heat embossed it. Using Gansi Tambi watercolors from Kuretaki I painted the stems and flowers, choosing the colors in the Autumn Blessings mix.Using Distress Oxides in Broken China and Cracked Pistachio I completed the background.The next step was to add the sentiment which I did using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After the project was completely dry, I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the flowers. I used On Point Glue to add the sequins to my project.  I hope you have enjoyed my project today and will come back daily and see what my team mates have created for you. 

Sending Prayers

Welcome back to the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog!  I'm Jill and I've created an encouragement card for you using the Time to Blossom stamp set and new sequin mixes Cotton Candy and Chantilly Cream.  After all the recent tragedies, I felt the need to create this type of card.

Using Canson XL watercolor paper cut to ~3.5" square, I stamped the main floral image with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.  I masked the image with some Molotow Art Masking Fluid, letting it dry.  I then water-colored the background stripes using Daniel Smith Mayan Blue Genuine watercolor in varying intensity.  When that was dry, I spattered flecks of about 4 different colors (I might have been a little heavy-handed here!).  Once dry, I removed the masking fluid and water-colored the floral image with several complementary Daniel Smith watercolors.  I also used a little clear Wink Of Stella on the light portions of the leaves and the tips of the flowers.  I then used a SSS Stitched Squares die on this p…

Grace's Little Note

Love and Laughter,


Hi crafters! Today I am sharing a watercolor card I made using "Grace's Little Note" stamp set.  I stamped the image on The Langton watercolor paper using Stazon ink in black.   This works great it doesn't smear.  I then used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.  I love the rich smooth texture of  these watercolors in comes in a pallet of  36 yummy colors.
The background paper is form Heartfelt Creations "Blushing Rose" collection the purple blended perfectly with the colors I used to color the gorgeous flowers. 
I used a die from Frantic Stamper "Stitched Rounded Rectangles" one of my fave's.  I then added a "forever" sentiment along with Frosted Cupcakes sequins from the Kennedy Grace Designs store. I hope everyone enjoyed my post and thanks for stopping by!!

Blessings on Your Special Day

Hello everyone!! Welcome to my inspiration post on the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog. I have used the newly released Friendship Blessings for my card today.


I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4.25" x 5.5" and drew a slight curve towards the lower part and cut it out. I stamped the flowers from the Friendship Blessings stamp set repeatedly along the lower and right border with Memento London Fog ink. I also stamped the sentiment "Blessings on your special day" from the same stamp set using the same grey ink. I colored the flowers using Copic markers - V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers, Y38 and Y35 for the pollen, G99, YG67, YG63 and YG61 for the leaves. I adhered a panel of purple card stock on to a top folding A2 card base and then adhered the image panel on it by leaving a tiny margin at the top. I added Nuvo drops in Violet Galaxy color for some final touch.

How do you like this card? Do let me know. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments.

Christmas Cards using KGC Stamps

Hi everyone, Heidi here! Today I woul like to show you these Christmas cards.  Now, maybe you’re thinking: “But KGC doesn’t carry Christmas stamps (yet)!“ That’s true, but today I’ll show you a way to create Christmas cards with their stamps nonetheless.
To get these cards started I stamped one of the flowers stamps from the Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set called “Grace’s Little Note“ three times onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper using Versafine “Onyx Black“ ink and using my MISTI and clear heat embossing afterwards. I used two separate flowers from each stamp print and this way you can create two cards from three stamped flower images. I also stamped two candles from the Create a Smile stamp set called “With Candles and Glitter“ on the same paper in the same way. If you don’t have a candle stamp you can draw a candle yourself, find a candle image on line and use/trace that or when you would like to go a little mixed media, find candle images in, for example, magazines …
