April Blog Hop!

                            Good Morning Crafty Friends and Welcome to Kennedy Grace Creations April Blog Hop!
We are so happy you have stopped by and joined us for this very special event!


Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!


Here is what I created for you today

For this card I did some lovely coloring with colored pencils I wanted this to be a very soft effect. I took the stamp set and stamped it several times along the edge masking off parts so they would look behind some and in front of others.  I love how it came out.  I then fussy cut and pupped them up.  I then added  a piece of pink glitter tape and thin piece of black and white stipe.  Stamped simple greeting and added a splash of the new Paris in Spring sequins and it was done. 




When I was coloring the flowers for the first card I decided might as well make two cards while I am coloring.  So that is what I did. As you can see the flowers are an exact match for the ones in my first card.  I have a little bag of just random extra's when I make cards and love to use the extra's I have to see what I can do with them . This card is the result of those.  I really like how well they all went together.  It is awesome to think outside the box for the random pieces we all have left.  :)


  For this card I did some lovely coloring with water coloring with white heat embossing.  I wanted this to be a very soft effect. I took the stamp set and stamped it several times along the edge. I love how it came out.  I used distress inks to color these images and did some spattering for a soft effect.  Last adding some sequins to tie it all together.


I am so excited to have created these one new stamp set as well as three new sequins mixes.  I put a lot of love and thought in to these sets.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.



We will be giving away one prize a $15.00 gift certificate to the Kennedy Grace Shop
 one lucky winner.


We hope you have enjoyed this release and will hop along to see what our talented designers have made using the new stamps sets and sequins from the April release.

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…
