Karen with you today on the Kennedy Grace blog and I'm featuring another card using the stamp set called Graces Little Notes. I went with autumn tones today, secretly, I actually really like all tones of orange. The flower is coloured in pencil and fussy cut by hand the old fashioned way with a pair of scissors. By the way if you are looking for a great pair of scissors for fussy cutting I can recommend EK Success Cutter Bee. I have bought all sorts of scissors in the past from cheap and nasty to more reputable brands and I can honestly say Cutter Bee are the best by a long shot. My family knows not to touch them unless they fear for their life.
Back to the card... it has a vintage feel to it with the papers I chose and I went with cream rather than white for the sentiment panel. Its finished off with a few Peaches and Cream sequins.
Hello, everyone! It's Rachel back again today with a floral friendship card.
I started by stamping my roses on a scrap piece of white cardstock and then coloring them in with my Copics.
Red - R35, R37, R39
Green - YG95, YG97, YG99
Gray - C00, C1, C3
I then centered the roses in a circle die and cut them out. I set that aside to start on my card base. I stamped my script background stamp in Smoke ink and then adhered my circle piece on top.
I cut a banner from some black cardstock and then stamped the first part of my sentiment on it in Versamark ink and heat embossed in white. I cut the "friend" part of the sentiment from some white cardstock and then covered it in Versamark ink and heat embossed in silver to create my own metallic paper.
I carefully adhered the banner over the bottom of the circular piece and then used my multi-medium matte to adhere the die cut on top of the banner.
I decided to keep it simple and forgo the sequins for this one because it's going …
Hello there! Erica here with my last blog post for July.
Today I'm steering away from both birthday and thank you cards if you can believe it..! Yep, today's card is a simple 'hello' one. With some water coloured flowers of course. Because why not?
I didn't really have a design in mind when I started this card, I just wanted to do some colouring and have some me-time. Right now, we have hydrangeas blooming all around our neighbourhood and one of my favourite colours is the one that is blue/purple. I love that deep, intense colour and tried replicating that on my flowers here. Sure, it's not a hydrangea stamp but just work with me for a minute ;-)
I picked out one of the little flower stems in the Grace's Happy Heart and heat embossed it in white in a pattern on my water colour card stock. I stamped it in such a way that I didn't need a mask as it doesn't overlap anywhere.
Usually when I colour with my Zig markers, I use them directly on the card st…
Hi, it's Beverly Jordan here on the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog again today, and am featuring the Grace's Little Note Stamp. I used the sketch below to frame the beautiful flowers.
I cut the Prima Marketing Sparkling Spring collection paper called Giselle, to an A2 size of 5.5x4.25 inches. I die cut a scallop out and then after coloring the flower, die cut that Neenah Bright white cardstock out with a circle die by Spellbinders. I felt the large print gingham ribbon matched well with the feel of the card to match. I used Crystal Laquer to glue down all the fine pieces but used Scrappy red Tape for the ribbon. Also used Pink Passion Sequins for the extra loving touch in opposite corners. I took close ups of the upper righthand corner to show you the fine detail of these gorgeous sequins! Do you see the translucent heart shape in the middle of the grouping? It looks white in one direction and a darker pink in another. Love that about these mixes!! Different shapes, beads and…
