Elegant Kennedy Grace Creations Card




Hi everyone, Heidi here, today I have a fairly quick and elegant card for you all that is suitable for all kinds of occasions!

I started by stamping one of the flower images from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Grace’s Little Note” stamp set twice on Copic friendly paper with Memento “Tuxedo Black” ink. Next I coloured the images with my Copic Sketch Markers. I wanted the result to be fairly light so I didn’t put on to many layers. I used the following marker colours: RV10 and RV02, G40, YG17 and G94, B21 and C00.

Then I fuzzy cut both images out with my Fiskars scissors, leaving a small blue space (from the B21 marker). I feel these flowers could be water-lily’s so that’s what I had in mind when I coloured the blue around the images. The following step is to die cut a panel from some white card stock with the middle sized die in the Kennedy Grace Creations “Scalloped Stitched Stacked Rectangle” die set and edging this panel with Memento’s “Summer Sky” ink with a foam applicator tool and bringing the colour inwards just a little.


In the next step I stamped one of the sentiments from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Splendid Roses” stamp set on the same panel as we were working on before using Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and using my MISTI stamping tool. And then it’s already time to put this card together: for my card base I choose a slightly pearlescent warm grey colour (from my local craft store). I die cut a light pink pearlescent panel with one of my rectangle nesting dies and also a slightly smaller white pearlescent panel with a stitched rectangle nesting die. I glued the white and the pink panel together with liquid glue and foam taped these combined panels to the card base with one millimetre thick foam tape. Then I foam taped the blue/white panel with the sentiment on it to the white pearlescent panel, also with one millimetre thick foam tape, and to finish this card I glued on the coloured flower images with liquid glue.

And that finishes today’s card, hope you enjoyed!

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.
















On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
