New release blog hop with Erica

Good Morning Crafty Friends and Welcome to Kennedy Grace Creations September Blog Hop!
We are so happy you have stopped by and joined us for this very special event!

Our newest release of Stamp and Sequins is now live and available for purchase in the store!

Here is what I have created for you

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!

Right, I'm skipping ahead a little bit here, let's go back to the beginning. I have used the Kindness Medley stamp set which I stamped with VersaMark on smooth black card stock and heat embossed it with Ranger Inks Gold Tinsel which is nice and sparkly. Then I jumped in the deep end with my pencils and started colouring. As the card stock is black I started with white pencil all over the petals to make sure the other colours popped. I went for teal blue colours, which I thought was a nice contrast to the gold and black. Plus I love blue. In pretty much every shade. I coloured all the petals and the leaves, and this took me quite a while but boy was it worth it. I love this look! 

As I didn't want to take away too much focus from the flowers themselves, I decided to keep the sentiment super-simple and just stamp 'Kindness' and heat emboss that in smooth gold embossing powder on a small banner. This along with a sparky gold stitched rectangle die to frame the card, was all I added. I thought that was very restrained of me, I'm usually an 'let's add all the sequins and layers and a bit of this and that' kind of gal. 

Well, with that, I'm all done! 

We will be giving away a prize package to one lucky winner.

  7. Erica, I had to chuckle when I read your post. I got a set of Prismacolors last Christmas and just can't bear to use them. Part of it is they are just so pretty, right, all perfect and gorgeous (a bit intimidating too, I agree). Your card is gorgeous and if you were intimidated, you certainly shouldn't be now!

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'…
