Watercolour Hydrangeas

Hello crafty friends!

It's Donna here, and I've been playing with watercolours and the beautiful Hydrangea stamp from Kennedy Grace Creations.

You may not know this, but back in the day before I had time to make cards, I was the head of the Japanese department at our local Grammar School. One of my ex students came to visit me the other day, and we got to talking about card making, and ending up having a crafty session with watercolour backgrounds.  It is so lovely to have students who see you as more than just a means to an end, as I worked very hard for my students, especially the senior students, who needed a lot of extra support.


This card today uses one of the backgrounds that I made with her. I just love the loose look of watercolour that continues 'outside the lines'. The image is stamped in Versamark ink.

To make the sentiment, I ran the painted panel through my die cutting machine with a happy die, being very careful to keep all the small pieces from inside t…

December Mood Board

Its Karen with you on the blog today and I am sharing with you my card inspired by the December Mood Board.  Its utterly gorgeous.  Lots of blues and silver with a touch of camel to get your creativeness going.  Be sure to look around the blog for lots of gorgeous projects from the rest of the Talented Design Team.  Just incase you want another look here is the mood board.



For my card I used the colour scheme of various shades of blues with a touch of camel and silver.  I also took inspiration from the decoration in the bottom left corner.  I stamped  the Beautiful Bloom Hydrangea onto a scrap of card and coloured it in pencil.  I then cut the tag placing the image where I wanted it before stamping my sentiment.  
I cut another tag in a contrasting colour to place behind the tag with the image.  The ribbon is threaded through the tag and tied in place with some camel coloured hemp cord.  The top tag is popped up on foam for some dimension.  The final touch was to scatter some Moonbeam…

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.
