Shakin' Things Up

Hi friends, I'm here to start off the week with a shaker card I created using the Kennedy Grace sets, Grace's Little Note and Inspirational Scriptures.


The beautiful sequin mix is called peaches and cream.  I colored the images with Copic markers, die cut a few extra leaves and added a bit of Copic shading to them.  I wanted to keep all that white space to place the flowers and empowering scripture in the spotlight.
Have a wonderful week!

Sweet Hydrangea

Happy Sunday Everyone!! Here with a clean and simple card for you using Beautiful Blooms- Sweet Hydrangea!




I love clean and simple cards with lots of white space. Could be because they are easy to mass produce or maybe its just that punch of colour that jumps out at you! For this card I stamped the hydrangea image onto white card stock and then coloured it in using a water pen and distress oxide. It worked great on just regular card stock as I didn't saturate the paper with water. Mostly made sure my brush had colour on it! Once the colouring was done I then cut out the image and placed it onto a stitched die cut smaller panel.  (The sentiment is from a Wplus9 set called Doodle Buds)
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you feel inspired to create!!

Baby Congratulations

Hello everybody! It's Donna here, and spring has finally sprung in my part of the world! I'm so excited to see the sun after so long.


I've made a baby congratulations card to share with you today. I've used the Sweet Baby Mine stamp set to make this card. I stamped the sweet image in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured it in using only very pale Copic markers.  I cut a window in a piece of white cardstock to make a shaker card. The sequins I used are from Kennedy Grace and are called Kindness Medley.
Finally, to stamp the sentiment, I used two colours of ink, first inking up the whole stamp in light blue, and then inking just the lower part in a darker shade of blue.

So until next time, may your days be filled with sparkle!

Blessings,  Donna
Hello, hello! Erica on the blog today with my last post for October. I can't believe it's nearly November, this year has seriously just whooshed past!

My card today is a bit of a "I'm in denial it's almost winter" card, using bright summery colours. It turns out I seem to have also used the colours of our October mood board on closer inspection. Maybe my subconscious is actually more onboard with the changing seasons than my conscious self? Who knows? Anyway, let's get to it shall we before this get's all psycho-analysing, shall we?

I started by cutting out an A2 stitched panel in Copic friendly card stock before stamping up the flowers from the Kindness Medley stamp set. One bunch of flowers in the bottom right corner and one in the top left corner. Then got my copic markers out, I used various yellow and orange ones to give my flower petals depth and highlights. For the leaves, I use a few different green ones to make sure they didn't end up lo…

Shaking Heart

Karen here with you today and I am sharing a card using the newly released Seaside Breeze and Jack Frost sequin mixes.  I haven't made a shaker in a bit as to be honest I find the foam layer never goes how I want it too so I thought I would try these plastic pouches and let me tell you they are just so easy I love them.

For my card I started with a design paper to match the sequins I was going to use.  I die cut the heart shape and placed a complimentary paper in behind.  I then filled the shaker with a mix of Seaside Breeze and Jack Frost sequins.  The sentiment comes from the new stamp set called Friendship Blessings which I stamped and die cut.  I then used some orange card stock to add some accents and bring it all together.




Love and Laughter,

Friendship Blessings with LeeAnn

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here on the Kennedy Grace blog with a fun water color card that I made using the new Friendship Blessings stamp set and a few sequins from the Autumn Blessings Mix

The process I used to make this card is as follows: Using VersaMark I stamped the image on watercolor cardstock.Using Imagine Clear embossing powder and my heat tool I heat embossed it. Using Gansi Tambi watercolors from Kuretaki I painted the stems and flowers, choosing the colors in the Autumn Blessings mix.Using Distress Oxides in Broken China and Cracked Pistachio I completed the background.The next step was to add the sentiment which I did using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After the project was completely dry, I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the flowers. I used On Point Glue to add the sequins to my project.  I hope you have enjoyed my project today and will come back daily and see what my team mates have created for you. 

Sending Prayers

Welcome back to the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog!  I'm Jill and I've created an encouragement card for you using the Time to Blossom stamp set and new sequin mixes Cotton Candy and Chantilly Cream.  After all the recent tragedies, I felt the need to create this type of card.

Using Canson XL watercolor paper cut to ~3.5" square, I stamped the main floral image with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.  I masked the image with some Molotow Art Masking Fluid, letting it dry.  I then water-colored the background stripes using Daniel Smith Mayan Blue Genuine watercolor in varying intensity.  When that was dry, I spattered flecks of about 4 different colors (I might have been a little heavy-handed here!).  Once dry, I removed the masking fluid and water-colored the floral image with several complementary Daniel Smith watercolors.  I also used a little clear Wink Of Stella on the light portions of the leaves and the tips of the flowers.  I then used a SSS Stitched Squares die on this p…
