Sweet Rose Sympathy

Hi, Beverly Jordan here today and am using Beautiful Bloom, Sweet Rose stamp set.
Don't you just love that big blossom!!! I used a Gina K die cut of Sympathy in white, overlaid to express the sentiment of the card.


 As for the details, this is actually a card I had made in the past that had no sentiment at all and then right at the time of us having Hurricne Irma, my girlfriend's father died at age 92!! He had had a rich, long life and it was truly a beautiful homecoming service. So I needed a card right away and used this one with the Sympathy laid over the beautiful rose. She loved it! Inside the card, I added "Sending Prayers" sentiment AND a NEW Bible verse that will be coming out this week in our newest stamp releases. Am so excited about this!! It is always nice to put a verse on the left inside page of my cards for a sweet message in addition to a sentiment. Hope you play along with us this week in our New Release Blog Hop. More information to follow!!!

Just a ( Yellow) Rose Card

Jill here, back again to share a card I made using Kennedy Grace Creation's stamp, Just a Rose.
My idea was to create an elegant card with bold accenting. 


I chose to use Stampin' Up!'s black and white striped DS paper as my backdrop for the card's main design layer.  I first stamped the rose image on NSW 80# cardstock, then carefully masked over it so that I could white heat emboss the leaf  images from Altenew's Floral Shadow stamp.  I then blended some Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress Inks onto the cardstock to bring out those leafy images. I then unmasked my rose and proceeded to color it in Copic markers, light yellows and oranges (my favorite color rose). I used a slightly darker/browner orange for the stamens, then swiped some Wink of Stella across them for a little shimmer. I colored the leaves then decided I wanted to frame the flower panel, so I die cut a frame using 2 Stitched Rectangles from Simon Says Stamp from some NSW 110# cardstock.  I foam moun…

Grace’s Shaker Card

Hi everyone, Heidi here, today I would like to show you this fun shaker card, for which I used several Kennedy Grace Creations products. For all the elements on my card I choose colours that worked well with the sequins mix that I wanted to use, which is the Kennedy Grace Creations “Rainbow Sherbet “ Shaker Bits & Things mix.

Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose Card

Jill here on the Blog for Kennedy Grace Creations.
I am so excited  to be joining the Design Team here.  For my first card using stamps from Kennedy Grace Creations,I wanted to create a window card with the sentiment on the inside panel. For that window, I used a MFT's die (I actually die cut it at the end of  making the card).  So first things first. I stamped and masked the rose images (three in all), then used an Altenew stencil with their shimmer ink spray for the background.  It is very shimmery, which you can't really see here. Once dry, I removed the masks and began my Copic coloring.  I wanted the yellow roses to be very light, so I left some white edges along some of the petals. However, they didn't end up as light as I had wished.  The pink is a nice dusty rose color which I think complements the yellow quite well.  Once the leaves were done, I went to work on the window portion of the card.  I die cut the window, then mounted the panel onto some fun foam for dim…

Floral Hugs

Hello, everyone! Rachel back today with a clean and simple card.


I used my MISTI to stamp my white card base with my Splendid Roses stamp. I kept my stamp where it was in the MISTI to stamp on a piece of watercolor paper that was cut to the same size as my card, but used Versamark this time. I heat embossed the watercolor paper with white embossing powder. This created two pieces with the image in the exact same spot.

I used an ink blending tool and Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade distress inks to blend into my watercolor paper over my image. It created an ombre effect over my flowers. I centered my Hugs die where I wanted to cut on my watercolor paper and ran it through my Big Shot. I used my MISTI to stack my watercolor paper (the negative piece) over my card base. Since my images were in exactly the same spot, this would line up my die cut hugs exactly where I wanted them. I used the negative piece as a guide to adhere my die cut with some foam tape. When everything was adher…

I'm back!

Hello!

Erica back on the blog today after a few weeks hiatus due to a house move. Nothing as dramatic as a hurricane thank goodness for me, but still very disruptive. I hope everyone affected by hurricanes, storms and floods are getting things sorted with cleanups, insurance claims and rebuilding.

I've not had much luck getting my craft room sorted after the move but I managed to make a card and write this blog post, which feels like a major win. It's only been 2 weeks since we moved in after all.

Right, well, seeing as I still have stuff all over the place I should try keeping this short and sweet so I can keep organising the house.

I started out with stamping the Splendid Roses on Copic friendly card stock and coloured that with bright pinks and fuchsia markers. I must admit this is not my finest colouring job but it sure is bright!

Once I was done colouring it, I fussy cut the image out and set it aside.

For my background, I used a Hero Arts stencil and some green Distress…

Get Well Card despite Hurricanes!!

Beverly here for my day!
Well, this Hurricane Irma has me all mixed up down here in Orlando, FL!! I don't know what day it is! LOL!! Have had it good with electricity, wifi, and less damage than other hurricanes!! Am feeling so blessed!  And so here is my card using the wonderful Kennedy Grace Creations Grace's Little Note stamp set colored with my Copic markers. Made it simple. Also stamped the sentiment onto green cardstock to lay over the flowers. Trimmed and adhered. Other supplies: Crate Paper Close Knit 6x6 pad which has a vintage feel; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Colorbox Roan Brown with dabber for distressing edges of papers; Fiskars 12 inch straight cutter and scissors; Bazzill yellow to match; Strathmore premade card base; Scotch 3L tape runner. Hope you enjoy your day and I will get back to my yard work! The bigger the trees and yard, the more to pick up!!  All family members in Florida are fairing well and no houses demolished. Feeling very blessed!

Hello Roses

Hello! Rachel back again today with a beautiful card featuring the Splendid Roses stamp set!


I started by cutting a panel of white cardstock down to 4 inches by 5 1/4 inches (just a bit smaller than a standard A2 card base). I stamped my roses in the bottom left corner in Memento Tuxedo black ink which is Copic friendly.

I colored my roses using my Copic markers using the following color combinations:

Reds - R35, R37, R39, R89
Greens - YG95, YG97, YG99
Gray Halo - C00, C1, C3

Next, I used my MISTI to stamp my large hello in Versamark ink so that it just barely overlapped my image. I heat embossed in gold embossing powder. I then stamped the rest of my sentiment in Lawn Fawn's Lobster ink on top of the hello sentiment.

I adhered my panel to a red card base using a tape runner and I was all done! Super simple, but pretty!

Thanks for stopping by!



Thinking of You

Hello, Rachel here today with another super simple no-coloring card!


I started this super simple card by cutting a panel to fit the front of a standard A2 card from Slate Gray cardstock. I stamped my Splendid Roses stamp in the upper left corner using my MISTI and some Versamark ink and then heat embossed in white. I adhered this panel to a white card base using some Be Creative double sided tape.

I stamped my sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed with silver powder. I cut another strip of white cardstock and then heat embossed the entire thing 3 times with more silver powder. I used some Multi Medium Matte to adhere my sentiment strip slightly offset on top of the newly made metallic paper. I adhered this to the card front using some foam tape for dimension.

I used a smattering of sequins from 3 separate mixes to get the different sizes of my clear sequins. I used the large clear size from Frosted Cupcakes, the small circles from Mint Julep, and …

Elegant Grace's Little Note Card

Today is my day on Kennedy Grace Creations to show off their gorgeous stamps!! Hi, I'm Beverly Jordan.


Today I am using Graces little Note stamp set and Frozen Sequins. I chose the colors of Peach and dark Turquoise. Using my Copics sketch markers I colored the petals with R00 first, adding the darker color of R22 at the center of each flower. Then using R20 in strokes touch the edge of the R22 color and going away from the darker color toward the edges of each petal which gives the petals a realistic look. Straight "flicking" strokes lifting up at the end of each, brings natural shading to the petals. Following the same method with the following colors for the leaves using YG11, YG63, and BG09. Then using BG70 and second touch color of BG75 for shading around the whole image. I like to stay with the blues for shading instead of the grays sometimes.   The whole card just came together so easily but I didn't have ribbon so used R22 to color Seam Binding to match perf…
