Love...

Hello there!  It's Cindy from In Love with Paper back on the blog with you today.  We are working with this wonderful mood board for the first part of December.  Isn't it fabulous?!  It's not your traditional red and green you see so much of this time of year.  I think that's what makes it so fun!
The card I came up with could be for a birthday, anniversary or even Christmas.  I used the Splendid Rose stamp set.  I colored it using Distress Crayons.  I'm really loving them lately.  I just apply the crayon with my fingers and smudge and blend the colors.  I just keep going until I like the look and brightness of the colors.  It's very fun and relaxing.  Kind of like an adult style of finger paint.  LOL!  And then I paired the rustic wood grain cardstock and the foil snowflake papers for the background.  I love to use contrasting papers.  

I finished it with a button, some glitter twine, a jingle bell and a snowflake charm.  
Thanks for stopping by today.  I hop…

Believe, You Inspire Me

Hello everyone! Martha Lucia here to share a CAS card with you.
Believe, You inspire Me is the card that I made inspired on December mood board of Kennedy Grace. Today I combined die cuts and stamps to create a Clear and Simple look with a very elegant touch. Take a look at my card:


I used Whisper White card stock to create the base and second layer of the card and the stamp set You Inspire Me from Kennedy Grace to stamp the sentiments behind of the die cut flower and the big word Believe. But let me share the process to create the card:

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 RangerAlcohol 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 Stitched Square from Simon Says Stamp from the middle of the 5" x 5" Yupo panel.  I then die cut the three Holiday Words

Birthday Tea Party

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for December. I love the beautiful festive colors.


I've been wanting to use the Vintage Tea Cups stamp set the moment I got it I love the tea cup stamp. As soon as I saw this moodboard, I was fixated on using that stamp set.


I stamped the border image from the stamp set using Memento London Fog on the top left and lower right. I stamped the kettle and the cup with the same ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. I used BG15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal colored part and C7, C3, C1 and 0 for the remaining. I decided to add some grounding for the kettle and cup with the grey color. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.

Blue and Silver

Hi everyone, Heidi here, today I would like to show you a mood board inspired card!

Winter flowers

Now I know there aren't exactly a lot of flowers blooming outside in the winter but I'm bringing you some lovely winter themed flowers anyways!  I am totally in love with the newest mood board!  Take a look.


Isn't it gorgeous??  One of these years I'm going to decorate my Christmas tree in all blue and silver. It'll have to wait until the kids move out though!  Our tree is currently a hodge podge of assorted ornaments and they each have their own collection I add to every year.  They get to take them with when they move out!

Let me get back to my project and go ahead and share it with you!


When I saw all those luscious shades of blue I knew I just had to color up some flowers!  This flower is from the Time to Blossom set.  This is most definitely one of my absolutely favorite sets from Kennedy Grace Creations.  I colored the flowers with Copic markers using BG000, BG01, BG05 and a touch of BG07.  I colored the leaves using T1, T3 and T5.  Aren't they lovely?

Frosty Shaker Ornament or Tag

December Mood Board for Kennedy Grace Creations is so gorgeously done!! Love all the soft blues and silvers together!! Just love the inspiration for today!! You can see my post over on my blog as well which is HERE.
I love to embellish gift bags as well as making ornaments and today's creation can be used for either. I first die cut the pretty window frame using mirrored cardstock, and then made it into a shaker. The first thing was to trace the shape out on cardstock that I could use my Copics on. Using the transparency of the stamped image that comes with the set, I arranged the rose cluster where I could see them peeking through the window.  Lining the stamp up with its picture, I stamped exactly where I wanted to with my MISTI. Coloring is so relaxing and I used the mood board to choose my colors. The image I stamped was using the Kennedy Grace Creations Splendid Rose stamp set. Afterward, I cut a piece of transparency to the size of the shape of the window again by tracing i…

Share Joy

Hello, friends! Marina is here! Do you feel the magic in the air? I deffinitely feel! So, the joyful season and the wonderful colors of our December Mood Board inspired me for a Clean&Simple card with lots of Joy!


I chose SHARE JOY sentiment from the Just a Rose Stamps to fill almost the whole white panel. Stylish sentiments from this set are great for such purpose! To stamp the background I used Memento Dew Drop Inks: Nautical Blue, Teal Zeal and London Fog, they perfectly match the colors from the Mood Board.
Golden glitter letters look very festive and fun. Great thing for a Holliday card!


Light blue and brown cardstock papers also match our Mood Board colors. Two little white stars are the perfect accents for the sparkling word JOY.

Our wonderful Mood Board! Sparkling and tasty in all meanings!

Blue Christmas

Hi friends!  It's Brenda here on the Kennedy Grace blog today.  I'm sharing a card I created after pondering the wonderful December inspiration board above.  There are so many things I love about this board.  Blue is my favorite color and Christmas is my most favorite time of year, so that's where I started.

I decided to make a shaker card using some of the gorgeous Kennedy Grace sequin mixes.  For this card I used Chantilly Cream and Ocean Water which look as if they were taken right off the mood board.  If you look closely you can see the beautiful iridescence of the Chantilly Cream.  LOVE THEM!


I started by cutting the ornament shape from a speciality white cardstock called Stardust, 2 sheets of fun foam and a blue metallic cardstock.  I glued the fun foam together adhered that to card base made of the same Stardust cardstock.  I adhered the metallic ornament in place and added the Kennedy Grace sequins.  I am notorious for forgetting to put the acetate onto my shaker…

Birthday Rose - December Mood Board

Hello, and Happy Sunday to you all!
It's Donna here, and I'm so happy to be sharing with you again.

Hasn’t this year flown by? I can't believe December is here already. Every year seems to bring so much that is unexpected, some bad but much of it good. Mostly, all this unexpected extra activity mainly just makes for a whole lot of busyness that I try to get rid of every January when I work out my new year’s resolutions. ( I've been unsuccessful so far, but next year's a new year, right?)

Isn’t this month’s Mood Board Gorgeous?  I love the cool colours and the silver sparkle. I’ve tried to capture some of this loveliness in my card this month.


I used the Just a Rose stamp set for my main image and stamped it in Memento ink, so that I could colour the image with my Copics. I grabbed out  and sampled all my light blue Copics and used different combinations for each petal, moving from blues to blue greens to blue violets. Once I had coloured the rose, I cut it out, le…

God's Greatest gift

Hello holiday crafters, it's Jill
in full Christmas swing here on the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog!!  My card today is called "God's Greatest Gift."  I wanted to shake things up a bit by using a technique I had never used before - Yupo paper and Rangeralcohol inks.  I created my card background using several colors (in hindsight I would have used fewer) and the silver metallic mixative (love it!).  I then embossed the Yupo paper with a SizzixChristmas snowflakes embossing folder that I discovered in my stash (I don't tend to use a lot of embossing folders, so I sometimes forget about them).  But that was exactly what this Yupo paper needed to make it look like a Christmas background!

I then die cut Penny Black's Manger die from the middle of the central embossed snowflake on the card panel, then die cut it again from NSW #110 cardstock.  I inlaid the white die cut into the Yupo paper, then adhered some clear acetate to the back side of it.  I used some Fun Fo…

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone!! It's Berina here today with a Thank you card for you.


This looks like a triple stamping, but I used only 1 panel of colored images. I'll walk you through the steps. I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and stamped the sentiment from the Friendship Blessings stamp set in the center and stamped the flowers repeatedly around the sentiment. I colored the images with Copic markers. With a T-ruler and pencil, I drew rectangles where I wanted to cut and used my paper trimmer to cut. I did the same with a black cardstock panel of size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and used it to matte all the pieces of image panel. Then I adhered the 3 pieces adhered on to each other with foam tape to give some dimension. I added some Nuvo drops in color English Mustard.


I really love how this has turned out. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.
