God's Greatest gift

Hello holiday crafters, it's Jill
in full Christmas swing here on the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog!!  My card today is called "God's Greatest Gift."  I wanted to shake things up a bit by using a technique I had never used before - Yupo paper and Rangeralcohol inks.  I created my card background using several colors (in hindsight I would have used fewer) and the silver metallic mixative (love it!).  I then embossed the Yupo paper with a SizzixChristmas snowflakes embossing folder that I discovered in my stash (I don't tend to use a lot of embossing folders, so I sometimes forget about them).  But that was exactly what this Yupo paper needed to make it look like a Christmas background!

I then die cut Penny Black's Manger die from the middle of the central embossed snowflake on the card panel, then die cut it again from NSW #110 cardstock.  I inlaid the white die cut into the Yupo paper, then adhered some clear acetate to the back side of it.  I used some Fun Fo…

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone!! It's Berina here today with a Thank you card for you.


This looks like a triple stamping, but I used only 1 panel of colored images. I'll walk you through the steps. I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and stamped the sentiment from the Friendship Blessings stamp set in the center and stamped the flowers repeatedly around the sentiment. I colored the images with Copic markers. With a T-ruler and pencil, I drew rectangles where I wanted to cut and used my paper trimmer to cut. I did the same with a black cardstock panel of size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and used it to matte all the pieces of image panel. Then I adhered the 3 pieces adhered on to each other with foam tape to give some dimension. I added some Nuvo drops in color English Mustard.


I really love how this has turned out. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.

Flower Baby Card

Hi everyone, Heidi here, today I would like to show you'll a card combining both baby elements and flowers!

Tags abound

Hiya to all the crafty people who are stopping by at the Kennedy Grace Creations blog today.  I'm here with a bit of a treat.  I have LOTS of tags to show you.  The best part is that I'm showing different ways to use the same stamp sets.  I hope this gets you thinking!

When I first started on my project the only thing I really had in my mind was that I wanted to make tags and I wanted to use some of the gorgeous Kennedy Grace Creations sequins.  I mean, have you looked at all the different sequins they have available??

Let's dive right in to the first set.



Look at all the pretty sequins!  Let's take it tag by tag so I can give you all the details.


I started by cutting out a piece of cream colored cardstock with a stitched die.  This was not intended to be a tag but I punched out a hole and instant tag!  I stamped the floral image from Grace's Little Note and heat embossed it in silver.  I masked it and sponged on Antique Linen distress oxide ink.  Making it darker…

Hexagon Roses

Hello! Rachel here today with my last post as a designer for Kennedy Grace Creations. I recently started a new job and it's been cutting into my crafting time, so I had to make the difficult decision to step down from my role as a designer. I'll still be around to look at all the great projects that the other designers will bring to you and I promise I'll still try to fit in some crafting time when I can.

And now, on to my creation for today!


I started this card by stamping my roses twice on a scrap piece of paper. I colored them in with my Copics and then used my stitched Hexagons to randomly cut out pieces of them. 
I cut and folded a card base and spritzed it with some gold color shine (difficult to capture in a picture) to add a few splatters of gold for interest. I adhered my hexagons in a descending pattern on the front of my card and then stamped and heat embossed my sentiment with gold embossing powder to match my splatters. I cut it out and then adhered it across…

Baby's 1st Christmas using Kennedy Grace Creations

Hello, it's Beverly here today!! I know you all may be out shopping this being Black Friday but with Christmas around the corner, I am hustling to get my holiday greeting cards out for all my favorite people in the world! One of those is my girlfriend who just had her baby girl, and I have delighted in "playing helper" to her and her family.  Such a pleasure to have a newborn baby in your arms, isn't it!! Well I felt I really wanted to make her an extra special card using Kennedy Grace Creations Baby Be Mine Stamp set paired with Sweet Baby Mine Sequins to make this delightful shaker for Baby's 1st Christmas.
First I started with a trial run of coloring this cute giraffe in pink. It just didn't make me happy. I tried again and made her yellow with pink dots, and that seemed to be a more natural look, so I went with that one. The original mock up was not as bright, so I tried more intense colors. Also, I had this fabulous paper pack from Basic Grey that had v…

Blue Flowers for Christmas

Hello dear frends, Martha Lucia here with you!

Blue Flowers for Christmas and flowers for everything! I love the stamps of Kennedy Grace Creations because they have an amazing collection of flowers and they are my favorites!  Today I have a project to share with you using the Grace's Little Note stamp set. Take a look at my card:

This is not a Christmas stamp set but with a little of creativity you can make whatever you want. And this is what I made. I just decided to stamp one of the flowers included on the stamp set Grace's Little Note with Versamark Ink and Gold Embossing Powder over Basic Black Cardstock and melted the powder. I tried not to connect the flowers so since I stamped one by one it was very easy to remove the powder when I didn't want to connect the flowers.

Then using Prismacolor Premier Color Pencils I colored each flower. In this opportunity I went with the blues and greens. I used two different blues and two different greens, but depending of your colo…

Blessings

Hello there!  It's Cindy from In Love with Paper back on the blog with you today.  I've got a fun shaker card to share with you.

Since I wanted a square shaped shaker I went with a 5 inch square card base.  I recently got a new paper stack by The Paper Studio called The Mint Berry.  Love it with all of it's mint, pink and grey.  So good!  I picked a rose print for the background of the card and shaker.  I created the frame for the shaker using my Cricut and the Elegant Edges cartridge.


I've used some crafty foam tape to lift the frame to make the sequins move in the shaker.  I cut a piece of an acrylic sheet down to make the window of the shaker.  I've used Winter Mint & Watermelon Spritzer sequins mixes.  And I also used part of one of the sentiment stamps from the Friendship Blessings stamp set.  The whole sentiment didn't fit so I masked off the bottom words with some tape and only stamped the top word, Blessings on the frame.  I added some sequins in…

Dark Blue Flower Card

Hello, dear friends! Marina is here. I'd love to show you my new card made exclusively with Just a Rose Stamps. I chose dark blue cardstock and embossed flowers with white embossing powder. Then I decided to color flowers inside the white frame with pencils of several blue shades. Leaves I colored with two shades of green.


The sentiment YOU ARE SUCH A BLESSING I stamped on the white cardstock with black VersaFine ink and cut out.

I also used sequins from the Frosted Cupcackes and Leather and Pink Lace Mixes.



Be inspired!

Inspirational Verses

Hi there!  It's Brenda here today sharing a project I made a while back.  This card was created using wonderful products from the last Kennedy Grace release.  I absolutely loved the Inspirational Verses stamp set.  Here's the card that was made using a simple layout and some of the gorgeous Chantilly Cream sequins -



The verses were stamped on a scrap of watercolor paper along with several of the sweet little small flowers from Beautiful Bloom - Sweet Rose.  I got my watercolors out, dropped in some color and then fussy cut them.  I matted the sentiment on a scrap of grey cardstock and adhered the flowers.  The bottom mat was created with an embossing folder and a couple of cardstock scraps in appropriate colors were added on top.  The verse was layered next with the gorgeous sequins being the crowning touch!  Love sequins and especially these Chantilly Cream sequins!!!



I hope today's post inspires you to get out your stamps, papers and of course sequins to create something…
