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 perfectly.
Other supplies included: MISTI; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spellbinders die with gold Recollections paper as well as their Blue metallic paper; Copic coloring paper was Neenah Bright White 110 lb.; Scrapbook Adhesives 3L tape runner and Crystal lacquer to adhere the sequins where I wanted; Fiskars 12 inch cutter and scissors.
I didn't have the right shade of ribbon so using Copic R22, and white seam binding, I colored it to match perfectly.
Am also playing along with Kathy Racoosin's #thedailymarkerchallenge of coloring every day. It is so fun and relaxing!!!
Love and Laughter,

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.

On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
