Handmade Rainbow Love You Card with Heat Embossing & Sparkle



Hello cardmaking friends! Today I have a glittery and sparkly, rainbow, handmade love you card for you! To create this bold, shiny and colorful card I used three Kennedy Grace Creations clear stamp sets; Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose, Just a Rose and Splendid Rose.

To begin I used my regular sized MISTI (most incredible stamping tool invented) by My Sweet Petunia. I placed a piece of 4.25"x5.5" Canson XL 140lb. watercolor cardstock right in the middle of the MISTI. I arranged a variety of roses from all three stamp sets and stamped them with VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. The images were then heat embossed with Hero Arts clear fine detail embossing powder.

After making sure all the images were heat embossed thoroughly, I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pens to color a rainbow on the background. I left the roses white, uncolored. 

I then used one of the Kennedy Grace Creations Stacked Stitched Rectangle dies and cut a rectangle from the center of the colored panel and from black cardstock. I adhered the outer rectangle frame to an A2 sized card front using dimensional foam tape.  I then adhered the black cardstock stitched rectangle into the frame with regular double sided tape. Using long (9") Martha Stewart crafting scissors I cut the stitched edge off of the inner rose panel. The purpose of this was so that we could see the black layer. The inside rectangle panel was then flatly adhered on top of the black panel. 

The sentiment reading 'LOVE YOU LOTS' is from the Just a Rose clear stamp set. I stamped it with Lawn Fawn Manatee dye ink. Clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen glitter was added to the stamped sentiment.

I hope you've enjoyed this non-traditionally colored and heat embossed card. Thank you for visiting my blogpost for Kennedy Grace Creations.

Happy Crafting and Cardmaking!!

Counting Down!

Hi its Karen on the blog with you today.

I think I may be in denial about Christmas.  It just seems to be sneaking up very very fast.  I know I have loads to do and really need to get going. Hopefully posting this Christmas Ornament may just help. This super cute little image from Kennedy Grace Creations is such a joy to colour and even though he's a christmas critter I think he could be used all year round on projects.  I used a die cut from Frantic Stamper Inc to cut the ornament in very sparkly paper.  Then popped the image up on foam.  Added some silver twine and there you have a super cute and easy ornament to adorn the tree or a special gift tag.  I think these would look lovely against shiny white wrapping paper.

I know it looks huge in the photo but its approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches in size.


Have a great day!

Matching Poinsettia Card and Tag

Rachel here today with a card featuring a peek at a future set.


I decided to create a matching card and tag set to use this Christmas season. The Poinsettias are gorgeous and so much fun to color!


Right now, these images are in digital format, so I arranged them in a Word document and then printed them out on some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used my KGC stitched rectangle die to cut out the portion of the images that I wanted to use and then used my Copics to color them in and added shadows around them. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment on top of my panel and then heat embossed in gold. I adhered my panel to a Fog Gray card base to add a little contrast.


Next up, I used a tag die to cut out another image for the front of my tag and then used the same process to color it in. I cut another tag from some white cardstock and then heat embossed my sentiment on it. I adhered the sentiment to the back of my poinsettia image to create a completed tag which also hid any bleeding from…
