Baby's 1st Christmas using Kennedy Grace Creations

Hello, it's Beverly here today!! I know you all may be out shopping this being Black Friday but with Christmas around the corner, I am hustling to get my holiday greeting cards out for all my favorite people in the world! One of those is my girlfriend who just had her baby girl, and I have delighted in "playing helper" to her and her family.  Such a pleasure to have a newborn baby in your arms, isn't it!! Well I felt I really wanted to make her an extra special card using Kennedy Grace Creations Baby Be Mine Stamp set paired with Sweet Baby Mine Sequins to make this delightful shaker for Baby's 1st Christmas.
First I started with a trial run of coloring this cute giraffe in pink. It just didn't make me happy. I tried again and made her yellow with pink dots, and that seemed to be a more natural look, so I went with that one. The original mock up was not as bright, so I tried more intense colors. Also, I had this fabulous paper pack from Basic Grey that had v…

Blue Flowers for Christmas

Hello dear frends, Martha Lucia here with you!

Blue Flowers for Christmas and flowers for everything! I love the stamps of Kennedy Grace Creations because they have an amazing collection of flowers and they are my favorites!  Today I have a project to share with you using the Grace's Little Note stamp set. Take a look at my card:

This is not a Christmas stamp set but with a little of creativity you can make whatever you want. And this is what I made. I just decided to stamp one of the flowers included on the stamp set Grace's Little Note with Versamark Ink and Gold Embossing Powder over Basic Black Cardstock and melted the powder. I tried not to connect the flowers so since I stamped one by one it was very easy to remove the powder when I didn't want to connect the flowers.

Then using Prismacolor Premier Color Pencils I colored each flower. In this opportunity I went with the blues and greens. I used two different blues and two different greens, but depending of your colo…

Blessings

Hello there!  It's Cindy from In Love with Paper back on the blog with you today.  I've got a fun shaker card to share with you.

Since I wanted a square shaped shaker I went with a 5 inch square card base.  I recently got a new paper stack by The Paper Studio called The Mint Berry.  Love it with all of it's mint, pink and grey.  So good!  I picked a rose print for the background of the card and shaker.  I created the frame for the shaker using my Cricut and the Elegant Edges cartridge.


I've used some crafty foam tape to lift the frame to make the sequins move in the shaker.  I cut a piece of an acrylic sheet down to make the window of the shaker.  I've used Winter Mint & Watermelon Spritzer sequins mixes.  And I also used part of one of the sentiment stamps from the Friendship Blessings stamp set.  The whole sentiment didn't fit so I masked off the bottom words with some tape and only stamped the top word, Blessings on the frame.  I added some sequins in…

Dark Blue Flower Card

Hello, dear friends! Marina is here. I'd love to show you my new card made exclusively with Just a Rose Stamps. I chose dark blue cardstock and embossed flowers with white embossing powder. Then I decided to color flowers inside the white frame with pencils of several blue shades. Leaves I colored with two shades of green.


The sentiment YOU ARE SUCH A BLESSING I stamped on the white cardstock with black VersaFine ink and cut out.

I also used sequins from the Frosted Cupcackes and Leather and Pink Lace Mixes.



Be inspired!

Inspirational Verses

Hi there!  It's Brenda here today sharing a project I made a while back.  This card was created using wonderful products from the last Kennedy Grace release.  I absolutely loved the Inspirational Verses stamp set.  Here's the card that was made using a simple layout and some of the gorgeous Chantilly Cream sequins -



The verses were stamped on a scrap of watercolor paper along with several of the sweet little small flowers from Beautiful Bloom - Sweet Rose.  I got my watercolors out, dropped in some color and then fussy cut them.  I matted the sentiment on a scrap of grey cardstock and adhered the flowers.  The bottom mat was created with an embossing folder and a couple of cardstock scraps in appropriate colors were added on top.  The verse was layered next with the gorgeous sequins being the crowning touch!  Love sequins and especially these Chantilly Cream sequins!!!



I hope today's post inspires you to get out your stamps, papers and of course sequins to create something…

bidding a farewell

Happy Sunday everyone! Have a couple of cards to share with you today! Also a side note, today will be my last post here on the Kennedy Grace blog.

It has been such a privilege to get to work with Michelle and this crazy talented team of hers!!! Michelle thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!! So back to the cards because I know thats what you're really here for!


This sunflower! Need I say more!! Wanted to continue with my clean and simple look for all the flowers!! I stamped this image in a kraft coloured ink to keep it a little more soft looking then took my distress oxide inks and a water colour pen and added the yellow and green. And honestly thats all that I did! Quick simple card easy to replicate for sure!! I just love it and the simplicity of it! 

This card is similar to something Ive done before when this fabulous set…

Heartwarming Friendship

Hello everybody from sunny Australia. It's Donna, and I have a card to share with you. The cold has finally broken here, and I’m enjoying a hot day (from inside, and with a cool drink - I don’t really want to get hot; it’s just nice to know that I could if I wanted to!)
I really am loving this Friendship Blessings stamp set. I love the height on the flowers, and the beautiful clean lines.

I have googled crocuses to colour my image. They seem to come in two main colours - yellow and purple. I absolutely loved the yellow crocuses, but when I  looked in my stash of Copics, I had very little in the way of yellows, so I went with purple instead.
I coloured the image with Copics, and rather than blending them as I usually do, I built up layers of colour using thin sweeps of the marker, leaving the striations visible, just as they are on the real flowers. I really love this look, and these flowers really showed if off well.



The background was created by stamping the same image on a piec…
