Hello Everyone!

It's Sheena Joy from Joy's Studio.

Today I am happy to be taking part in the monthly Kennedy Grace Creations Dueling DT's.
My fellow Design Team-mate, Cammy, and I are both using  the same stamp set and making our own creation with it.

This is what I made:

Cammy and I choose the gorgeous Grace's Little Note stamp set:
Grace's Little Note
I used one of the floral images in the set and. First I gold embossed it, then I colored it in with a wet paint brush and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers (Yellow & May Green). I then fussy cut out the image. I made a gold circular frame using stitched circle dies and gold embossing powder. I also gold embossed a leaf die cut (cut from a Technique Tuesday die, Garden Leaves). I placed everything on the front panel as seen in the photo, adding gold thread nested underneath the flower. The hello sentiment is from the same stamp set & was also gold embossed. Kennedy Grace Creations sequins (Sunshine On The DaisiesRed Sangria) were the perfect finishing detail:

Cammy also created a beauty - I truly admire her talent! I have so enjoyed "dueling" with Cammy - her creation definitely inspires me!

To purchase the Grace's Little Note stamp set,
 go to the Kennedy Grace Creations store where you'll see this stamp set and many other inspiring goodies to make your own creations!

Hi all! I'm here today with a special challenge for Kennedy Grace Creations. Sheena Joy and I are "dueling designers" today. We have both used Grace's Little Note to create a project for today.

Here's my card for today:

KG Patriotic Duel May

Given that today is Memorial Day in the US, I wanted to use red, white & blue as my color combo. I stamped one of the floral images from Grace's Little Note in Versamark on watercolor paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then used Gelatos to watercolor the image. My favorite technique is to scribble a bit on my craft mat, wet it and pick up the color with my waterbrush. I then cut the image out with a Stitched Circle STAX die from MFT. My layout is a great sketch from Sassy Sketcharinos and I pulled out three ribbons to create the stripes on the sketch. My sentiment is stamped with VersaFine Onyx ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then added in sequins from Dress Blues and Blackbird.

Hope you'll stop by Sheena's blog and the Kennedy Grace Creations blog for more details! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you again soon!

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…

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!
