My take on the Kennedy Grace November Mood Board

Hi everyone its Karen with you today sharing my take on the November Kennedy Grace mood board.

Have you seen it?  There's so much inspiration to choose from.  Just in case here is another look.  The colours are just so lush and pretty.

I chose the colours and the wreath as my inspiration and using the new stamp set called Kindness Medley I created my wreath.  I used a die cut as my base and to form the shape I wanted to use.  I then stamped and coloured my flowers using pencil before cutting them out close to the edge.  They are popped up on foam tape for some added dimension.  The "kindness is a beautiful thing" stamp is from the same set, simple stamped in the centre of the wreath.  I added some pearls and glitter with little loops of silver string to give a little more interest to the card.
My backing card stock is a subtle woodgrain to resemble a door on which the wreath is hanging.

I hope you will join in and use the mood board to create your next project.  Thanks …

Inspiring Kindness with Kennedy Grace Creations

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my second project for November with Kennedy Grace. I was having a little fun on my computer with my Silhouette software and designed this frame design, and used two of our stamp sets (Kindness Medley and Inspire) to complete my project.

First I printed this frame design on 110 lb cardstock with my Ink Jet printer. Next I used my Stamp Press and stamped the flowers from Kindness Medley in each of the corners, while also masking off the opposite boxes so that the flowers did not run into each other. I used Memento Love Letter to stamp the flowers.My next step was to stamp the sentiment in the middle oval from the Inspire stamp set. I used Memento Bahama Blue to stamp the sentiment, varying the strength of touch to leave an ombre' look.
From here after all ink was try I went into coloring mode using my Memento markers to color the flowers using Angel Pink, Dandelion, Tangelo, Cantaloupe and New Sprout.My final step was to cut the…

Grateful for our Friendship

Hello friends, it's Jill here on the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog to present a card I made using the Kennedy Grace Creations November Mood Board as my inspiration.  This card is called, Grateful for our Friendship, because life is truly so much better with friends!  It showcases how you can stretch your stamp sets to be used for the holidays even though they are not holiday stamps.

 I primarily used the KGC stamp set You Inspire meto make this card.  I first prepped my card panel with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink (DOI) by dragging the pad down in vertical stripes to create what looks like a weathered wood panel door.  I then lightly traced a circle the size that I wanted my wreath to be and then used 3 of the small images from the stamp set (small leafy branch x 2, and the 3 dots) to make my wreath.  I used mostly Distress Oxide inks, inking each stamp one color and stamping it around the circle, then changing colors and again stamping around the circle, turning the leafy branc…

Blessings To You

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for November. I love the beautiful Christmas colors.

This pic really inspired me to do gold embossing, which is one of my all time favorites. And here's the card that I made:

 I took a watercolor cardstock panel of size 4" x 5.25" and stamped the flowers from the Grace's Little Notes stamp set repeatedly after masking and embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I watercolored the flowers with Distress Ink Barn Door. For the leaves, I used Distress Ink Antique Linen. I love this color combination! For the sentiment, I used the "Blessings To You" from the Vintage Tea Cup stamp set and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I inked the edges of the top folding A2 card base with Distress Ink Barn Door and adhered the watercolor panel on to it using glue. That's it!

Please join in with us and share your creations using Kennedy …

Lacy Sunflower Card

Hi everyone, Heidi here, today I have a water coloured card for you all, featuring the beautiful Kennedy Grace Creations “Sunflower“ stamp set. I choose the colours for today's project from this month's moodboard:

Let's get in the "Mood"...

Let's get in the "mood" and by mood, I mean the latest Mood Board from Kennedy Grace Creations for this month!!  The colors are just gorgeous.  See for yourself!

So now that you've seen my inspiration, let's get to it!

I have recently learned to make never ending cards.  There are tons of great tutorials already out there and I found several on YouTube.  These things are awesome and now I just can't stop!  I figured this was the perfect time to make another one AND use lots of lovely products from KGC.  I'm going to take you through panel by panel.

I used a dark red as my main card base for the entire card.  The patterned cardstock all comes from the same 6" x 6" paper pad "A Perfect Autumn" from Echo Paper.  The gold glitter cardstock is made by Die Cuts With a View.
For this panel I used the Believe sentiment from You Inspire Me and the flowers are from Grace's Little Note.  I heat embossed them with a gold embossing powder.  I …

Rachel's November Mood Board

Hello! Rachel here today with some inspiration from our November Mood Board!

I love the red and gold in these photos and so I knew I wanted to create something using those particular colors. Then I remembered a video Jennifer McGuire did quite a while back using deco foil transfer gel to create foiled backgrounds and decided to do it myself! To see her excellent video, please click here.

I used her tutorial to create that beautiful gold background on some Crumb Cake cardstock and then adhered it to a white card base using some double sided tape. I cut out a piece of a white cardstock with my twisted stitch border dies and then stamped my sentiment on it using Versamark ink and then heat embossed in gold to match the background. I stamped the floral image on a separate piece of cardstock and colored it in with my copics and then fussy cut around it. I used some more double sided tape to adhere it to my card front and I was all done!
Here's a close-up of all that fun shine!

Tis the make Christmas Cards!!

Don't these colors just ooooze Christmas?                           Using Kennedy Grace Creations November's Mood Board I made my card.

Taking my Neenah 110 lb paper cut at 4.25 by 5.5 inches, I put it through my Xyron Creative Station to put adhesive completely on one side of the thick cardstock. I started with Cosmic Shimmer Egyptian Gold Gilding Flakes, picking up some of the deeper golds, and red flakes to make it match the gorgeous mood board above.  As you can see in my picture, I put some of the silver flakes aside and added all reminding flakes back into the jar. Once the flakes were covering the entire piece, I began smoothing and buffing the front with a Swifter Sweeper Dry Sweeping cloth. I cut one sheet in half to make it easier to use. I buffed it all out being careful to not push down too hard but only used a buffing motion until I got the shiney piece you see now.

  I stamped the Kennedy Grace Creations Grace's Little Note bouquet onto the same Neenah cards…
Hello dear friends! Martha Lucia here with you today! 
A day filled with happiness should be everyday. I am this kind of person that think that if you do what you love you are happy and I am so happy using this stamp set called Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea from Kennedy Grace.

This month the mood board of Kenny Grace Creations is plenty of inspiration, combining gold with rose red colors, It inspires me to use Metallic Gold Embossing Paste and stencil to create the background of my card. I used Spiral Petals Stencil from Hero Arts over a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and let dry very well before to paste over the whisper white card base.

I stamped the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea three times over watercolor paper with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with distress inks before to fussy cut them with my scissors. I used two colors of distress ink for coloring the flowers, Candied Apple and Abandoned Coral and two colors of distress ink for coloring the leaves Mowed Lawn  and Twisted…
