Rachel's November Mood Board

Hello! Rachel here today with some inspiration from our November Mood Board!


I love the red and gold in these photos and so I knew I wanted to create something using those particular colors. Then I remembered a video Jennifer McGuire did quite a while back using deco foil transfer gel to create foiled backgrounds and decided to do it myself! To see her excellent video, please click here.


I used her tutorial to create that beautiful gold background on some Crumb Cake cardstock and then adhered it to a white card base using some double sided tape. I cut out a piece of a white cardstock with my twisted stitch border dies and then stamped my sentiment on it using Versamark ink and then heat embossed in gold to match the background. I stamped the floral image on a separate piece of cardstock and colored it in with my copics and then fussy cut around it. I used some more double sided tape to adhere it to my card front and I was all done!

Here's a close-up of all that fun shine!



I actually loved the design so much that I created another one!


I followed the same procedure for my first card for this one, but I changed up the side I wanted my flowers on. I stamped my sentiment on the opposite side and then adhered my floral on top of the card base with double sided tape and a little foam tape where it overlaps the gold.

Thanks for joining me today!

One Layered Card - Featuring Kennedy Grace Creations: Time To Blossom

Hey folks! I'm back to share a card from the Kennedy Grace Creations New Release! The stamp set I used today is the Time To Blossom Stamp Set . I really enjoyed the simplicity of this set. You could totally heat emboss this and do some fabulous watercoloring, but Copic's seems to be the way to go for me lately so that's what I did. I started by stamping the image twice on my card panel. The only masking I did was a tiny bit on the stem. The name of the game was to keep this super simple folks. As I said, I colored the images with Copic's. Another thing I enjoy about the Time To Blossom Stamp Set is that you could choose any colors you wanted. I chose red-violets and yellow-greens, but seriously peeps, whatever floats your boat and it will looks great! To finish off my card, I used a added a couple of hand drawn lines to the background and I stamped a portion of a stamp that is also in the Time To Blossom Stamp Set . That's it! Easy peasy. T

Joy Peace Love, December Mood Board Card

December is here and Christmas is getting near!  Jill here, and I'm loving the Kennedy Grace Creations Mood Board this month (see below).  I continued my playtime with Yupo paper and Ranger Alcohol Inks to create the background for my card.  I think this one turned out fabulous!  I used just 2 colors of alcohol ink, Stream and the Pearl Mixative , along with the Blending Solution .  Since I knew this was going to be the background, and I didn't want to cover too much of it up, I decided to add some die cutting in the center of the card, make it a shaker element (I do love Shakers, you probably noticed!) and then add some simple, elegant floral images from Kennedy Grace Creations (white heat-embossed) to two opposing corners.                                                        Here's what I did.  After the Yupo paper dried completely, I die cut the S titched Square from Simon Says Stamp from the middle of the 5" x 5" Yupo panel.  I then die cut the
