Just a ( Yellow) Rose Card

Jill here, back again to share a card I made using Kennedy Grace Creation's stamp, Just a Rose.
My idea was to create an elegant card with bold accenting. 

Jill  Designer

I chose to use Stampin' Up!'s black and white striped DS paper as my backdrop for the card's main design layer.  I first stamped the rose image on NSW 80# cardstock, then carefully masked over it so that I could white heat emboss the leaf  images from Altenew's Floral Shadow stamp.  I then blended some Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress Inks onto the cardstock to bring out those leafy images. I then unmasked my rose and proceeded to color it in Copic markers, light yellows and oranges (my favorite color rose). I used a slightly darker/browner orange for the stamens, then swiped some Wink of Stella across them for a little shimmer. I colored the leaves then decided I wanted to frame the flower panel, so I die cut a frame using 2 Stitched Rectangles from Simon Says Stamp from some NSW 110# cardstock.  I foam mounted the frame onto the flower panel for some dimension.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same KGC stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink (the best for really black, detailed images I think).  After adhering all the layers together onto #110 NSW card base, I gathered several sequins from KGC's Honey Bee mix and 1 silvery sequin from the Tropical Treasure Mix and randomly placed them into a visually appealing pattern (Hmm, a "random pattern" sounds a bit contradictory, but I think you know what I mean!).  **Of note, because I needed a certain amount of the black striping to show, my card dimension is not standard.  It ended up being 4.5" x 5.5".  Thank you for stopping by and seeing my creation.  I hope it gives you some interesting ideas to try out.

Happy crafting!!

Jill

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…
