Cammy on the blog today

Hi all! It's Cammy from Pink Room Therapy Designs with a thank you card I made with the newly released Grace's Little Notes. I stamped this beautiful flower trio in VersaMark on Grout Gray card stock (MFT). I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Before I colored it, I cut it out with a Pierced Rectangle STAX die (MFT).

 I've seen so many beautiful projects colored with Polychromos pencils and picked up a few at a local art store. I colored in the flowers and then stamped a sentiment in VersaFine Onyx and embossed with black.

 To compliment the flowers, I picked out a piece of designer paper to pair with a Grout Gray card base. I added in a bow of turquoise satin ribbon and then popped up the floral panel. Finally, I added in a trio of sequins from Iced Berries. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  Please check out the Kennedy Grace Creations store for the products I used along with many more!

Hi it is Karen on the blog today

I actually really like sketch challenges and this first one from Kennedy Grace is great.  I flipped it up to portrait and had to switch the flower to the other side as I didn't want it to cover my sentiment "you inspire me by being you".  If you haven't you should check out the You Inspire Me stamp set from Kennedy Grace,  the you, inspire and me by being you are all separate and you can mix and match them to form the words and style you want, so much flexibility. The little flower is  from Grace's Happy Heart stamp set.  Its a branch but I fussy cut a single bloom. I added some Watermelon Spritzer sequins to balance the flower and add a little sparkle.

Now stop by the other Design Team members to see what loveliness they
have created from this sketch HERE.

See you soon

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.

Your next stop is the lovely and talented:  Karen O

Marilyn's Color Inspiration Card

Hello Everyone this is Marilyn with the Design Team. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your spring day weather is as gorgeous as it is here.
Today's card is my contribution to Kennedy Grace Creation's new colour challenge and I love the soft, pretty hues from the inspiration photo:
Now if these aren't pretty pastel and spring-like colours, I don't know what is.
The image and sentiment are both from the Grace's Happy Heart set and I used Copics to colour it.  The sequins are from Kennedy Graces' new Frosted Cupcakes mix which is a sequin assortment of pink tones, chocolate, clear and some seed beads.
 Have a good week!

Thank You

Good Day Everyone!
It's Sheena Joy from Joy's Studio sharing a floral thank you card that I made with the beautiful Grace's Happy Heart stamp set:
 This is the stamp set that I used (Grace's Happy Heart):

A Peek Inside The Card
I started by using a stitched rectangle die with cream card stock. After that, I made a partial die cut circle towards the top using a stitched circle die and a craft knife to have the semi-circular shape on top. I gold embossed one of the floral images from the stamp set within the circle and colored it with Persian Blue (032) and Green (040) Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers using a wet brush.

The "thank you" was cut from a Hero Arts die that was gold embossed and adhered with a glue pen. This front panel was put on fun foam and adhered to the dark gray card base, I tucked a gold thread nest under the top portion for added interest. I then embellished with the gorgeous Isabella's Dream sequin mix (photo below) which brought out the blue and added sparkle.
For the inside of the card I cut out a stitched rectangle piece again then used gold embossing with the same floral image adding the same colors as the front of the card. The friendship sentiment was stamped with a Momento Dew Drop ink pad (Danube Blue). I again embellished with Isabella's Dream sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today, I hope  that you found some inspiration!
