Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here with you today!

 I want to share with you Kindness Medley: a new type of flowers. It is a stamp set from Kennedy Grace that is simply adorable because you can give different forms to the flowers and stamp them in different ways. Take a look at my card:

 
I was inspired to create this with the monthly mood board that is normally used on Kennedy Grace Blog. This offered me the colors of fall season and as you know the yellow flowers are my favorites so I started working on this project by stamping the flowers from the set Kindness Medley using in clear embossing ink or Versamark onto whisper white cardstock. I used my MISTI stamp positioner to help me get a nice crisp impression.

 
Next, I covered the entire stamped images with  Gold embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. To add a pop of color to these images I used my copic markers in green and yellow colors.  I used YR23, YR24, YR27, YG21, YG03 and YG17. This process takes a bit of time, but I think the result is well worth it.


Over the same panel I stamped the Kindness work following the same process and in a separate piece of whisper white card stock I stamped the tiny message that then overlaid in a Peekaboo Peach piece of card stock. I trimmed my colored panel to 4 x 5 1/4″ and die cut under the flowers using one of the Die-namics Stitched ScallopBasic Edges from My Favorite Things. Then I pasted the upper part directly onto an A2 Peekaboo Peach card base. Using the same die cut, I cut a second piece from the same whisper white layer to create a dimentional pieces and pasted the kindness part onto the A2 Peekaboo Peach card base and foam mounted the additional cut.

 
To embellish the card I added some sequins from the Enchanted Evening collection from Kennedy Grace, only on the top part and some over the flowers. This is the mood board for October in Kennedy Grace Creations and I would love to know what you think?


See you soon!

Counting Down!

Hi its Karen on the blog with you today.

I think I may be in denial about Christmas.  It just seems to be sneaking up very very fast.  I know I have loads to do and really need to get going. Hopefully posting this Christmas Ornament may just help. This super cute little image from Kennedy Grace Creations is such a joy to colour and even though he's a christmas critter I think he could be used all year round on projects.  I used a die cut from Frantic Stamper Inc to cut the ornament in very sparkly paper.  Then popped the image up on foam.  Added some silver twine and there you have a super cute and easy ornament to adorn the tree or a special gift tag.  I think these would look lovely against shiny white wrapping paper.

I know it looks huge in the photo but its approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches in size.


Have a great day!

Matching Poinsettia Card and Tag

Rachel here today with a card featuring a peek at a future set.


I decided to create a matching card and tag set to use this Christmas season. The Poinsettias are gorgeous and so much fun to color!


Right now, these images are in digital format, so I arranged them in a Word document and then printed them out on some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used my KGC stitched rectangle die to cut out the portion of the images that I wanted to use and then used my Copics to color them in and added shadows around them. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment on top of my panel and then heat embossed in gold. I adhered my panel to a Fog Gray card base to add a little contrast.


Next up, I used a tag die to cut out another image for the front of my tag and then used the same process to color it in. I cut another tag from some white cardstock and then heat embossed my sentiment on it. I adhered the sentiment to the back of my poinsettia image to create a completed tag which also hid any bleeding from…
