Inspired by Sunflowers

Hi friends!  It's Brenda here with my first post as a KGD designer.  What do you think of the gorgeous mood board we've been sharing with you?  I love the cool, crisp weather and the beautiful show that nature puts on during this season.

Though my home is in Hawaii now, I grew up in Kansas and had to take the sunflower and the gorgeous colors as my inspiration. 

I used Beautiful Blooms - Sunflower for my feature image.  I stamped the image on watercolor paper with my MISTI using Smokey Grey VersaFine ink and the heat embossed it with clear powder.    I used Koi watercolors to color the image and ended up fussy cutting them both.  The lovely sentiment is from the set, it was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.  I stamped the sentiment on a panel with distress ink on the edges.  I added a few sequins, from the Autumn Blessings mix which you may have noticed in the new release.  

I'm hoping you will find some inspiration from the mood board and that you will share your creations with us over on the Kennedy Grace Designs Facebook page.  Have a great week!

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'…
