Vintage Tea - Copic Coloring and Heat Embossing

Hello crafty friends! Meghan here, to share a fast, clean and simple card using the Vintage Tea stamp set and sentiment from Beautiful Blooms- Sunflower.

The pink card base was turned into a background by repeat stamping 'Life is Better with Friends' sentiment stamp with VersaMark ink. I then added white embossing powder and heat set for a smooth and raised finish.

I stamped and colored the gorgeous teapot on some Neenah Classic Crest 80lb cardstock. I colored using Copic markers and fussy cut out the image. I adhered it to the card base using foam adhesive. To add some finishing touches I simply colored the roses on the teapot with Wink of Stella shimmer brush pen and added some fabulous Kennedy Grace Creations sequins. Hope you like my clean and simple friendship card!

with sympathy

Hey crafters!! Chera here to share with you another simple card!

This came together pretty quick by stamping one of the flower images from "graces little note" in black around the bottom corner of the card front. After I filled in the area enough with the image I pulled out my Clarity brushes. If you've never used them before I highly highly recommend them for sure!! Getting that soft ombre look has never been so easy!! I then added the sentiment and of course some "moonbeam" sequins because really how could you not!! matted the card front on black for a little more of a pop and the card is complete! I will be making more of these cards with multiple different colours as it was a pretty quick one to produce! Today I show it to you in pink for breast cancer awareness of course!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!! Have a wonderful weekend...its close enough to say that right??

My Planner Tag

Happy Hump Day!

Today I am super happy to share this very personal tag I made for my Erin Condren planner with my beautiful niece, her birthday is coming up and I wanted to make a tag to mark this special day!

To make this tag, I stamped the gorgeous Rose stamp called Splendid Roses from Kennedy Grace on watercolor paper and embossed it with gold embossing powder from the Paper Source (you know I have a thing for gold :D ), then colored my image with zig kuretake clean color, next I wrote on calligraphy her name and birthdate.

After that, I die cut my little frame and masked some stripes with washi tape and applied distress inks with my blending tool, because I love texture, I added nuvo drops matching the colors of my roses and a sticker from my planner, this tag was attached to my planner with the CoilClip connectors which I find really useful since I can attach any card or extra tag to my planner with them. To finish it up, I added   the picture of my beautiful niece, I will place this tag on the month of October to remind me this special day, she is a very sweet girl, we are all so proud of her!

Don't forget to check the bundle sale Michelle has this month, besides enjoying some beautiful stamps you will be contributing to a wonderful cause like the Susan G Koeman foundation.

Have a great rest of the week!
Big Hugs,

Hi its Karen on the blog today.

Love yourself and make sure your breast checks are up to date.  Book your mammogram if its overdue and talk about it with your friends.  Make sure they are all up to date also.

That's what inspired this card using the Kennedy Grace Creations Splendid Rose stamp set.  I wanted it to look like a drawing or sketch.  Something a little different than usual.  My design is kept simple allowing the image to work as a focal point.  I added some Mother of pearl sequins to finish it off.

It is Breast Cancer Awareness month so go ahead and give yourself some Love.  Today and not tomorrow!!!

And don't forget Michelle has some special offers in store with donations going to support Breast Cancer Research.

Love and Laughter,

Welcome Andreea as our guest designer today

  Hello there! It's Andreea and I am delighted to be guesting today with the KGC talented team. Even more so happy to be joining their efforts for raising breast cancer awareness, during this October month. This is why the project I am sharing with you today it is colored in pink.

I used one of the beautiful flowers in "Grace's little note" stamp set, which I stamped on watercolor paper with Versamark ink. It stamped beautifully and I embossed it using white embossing powder, by Hero Arts. I colored the flowers with my zig clean color brush markers, using different shades of pink. I used a stitched rectangle frame die to cut the main panel.
I do need a few birthday cards this month, so the "celebrate your day" sentiment, part of the same stamp set, worked perfectly. I stamped the sentiment on a banner die cut using the Simon Says Stamp die. I sprinkled a few pink and clear Kennedy Grace Creations sequins on the main panel, for a bit of more "festive" look.
I felt like my panel needed a frame, so I thought a pink shade polka dot paper will create a nice little background frame for our panel, so I added this paper before adhering it to the card base, using some dimensional foam.

Thank you for having me on the blog today! Have a wonderful day and don't forget to have your checks done.


Floral Thank You

Hello! Rachel here today with another card inspired by the color pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

For this card, I used my MISTI to help me stamp my Sweet Rose image repeatedly over a panel cut with a Stacked Stitched Rectangle die. when my panel was completely covered, I colored each image with my Copics. It took some time, but it was definitely worth it! When the panel was completely covered, I used my thanks die to cut my word directly from the colored panel. (Scary, I know!) I adhered the panel over a gray card base and then adhered the little pieces from the die where they needed to go to complete the words (the piece from the h, k, and s). I finished my sentiment by stamping it in Versamark on a black Banner die cut and then heat embossing in white. I adhered the black banner with some foam tape for a little bit of dimension since the rest of the card was flat. I added a couple of sequins and it was finished!

I came up with this card for the support cause.

I started with a card base and dry embossed it with a wood grain embossing folder. Next I stamped the Splendid Roses stamp set with the lightest pink ink and I colored it with my copics in pink for a no line coloring effect. I cut a circle from vellum and a circle frame from pink glitter paper. I die cut the hope word die and added some sequin. I love the way it all came together.
Thanks for stopping by please leave me some love!!!
