Sharing a little green

Hi gang!  I wanted to stop by and share a little bit of green with you today.  I keep hoping and wishing for Spring to hurry up and arrive!  I decided to create a little spring inside my craft room. 


This card features a lovely little flower bunch from Grace's Happy Hearts.  I colored the flowers with some Zig Clean Color real brush markers and a water brush.  The orginal image was stamped on to Bristol smooth cardstock.
I kept the card very simple.  I cut out the flowers with a die from MFT Stamps and used a larger die from the same set to cut out the striped paper.  All of the patterned papers are from the Vivienne paper pad by Basic Grey.
For the finishing touch I added 3 sequins from the Lemon Sorbet sequin mix.  And that's it for my card today.  I hope you see some signs of Spring soon!

Planner tag and shaker

Hello there!  Cindy from In Love with Paper back on the blog with you today.  I've got a couple of fun planner projects to share.  
The first project is a tag that I made for my planner.  I used my Create 365 Happy Planner punch to make this tag that goes into my planner.  The top of the tag and the ribbon sticks out of the planner.  I thought this was a fun way to mark a page.

I used the Time to Blossom stamp set for this project.  I colored the flowers with colored pencils.  I added some Frosted Lace Stickles for some sparkle.  And a crinkle ribbon bow completes the tag.
This is the tag in my planner.  


My second project is a shaker for my planner.  I used the wonderful Friendship Blessings stamp set.  I also used colored pencils on this image.  And I used my Fuse tool with a waterfall sleeve to create the shaker pouch.  The sequin mix I used is called Frozen.

A Rosy Card

Hi! Marina is here with a rosy card. Big flower stamps often inspire me for a stamped background. A rose from Just a Rose stamp set is just great for such a background. I stamed it with bright pink WRMK ink.


The word Hello I die cut from black cardstock and adhered it to the mint flag banner.

For a little accent I used a black sequin from the Autumn Blessings mix. I also drew little black dots with a marker to fill the gaps between the flowers.


Thanks for stopping by! Be inspired!

A Little Inspiration

Good day all!  It's Brenda here with a few little creations I made using the Kennedy Grace stamp set, Inspirational Verses.  I made these tags to give to co-workers, friends or even as inspiration for myself.  I keep them in my "war binder" ready if they are needed.  If you are not familiar with a war binder, quite simply it is a cross between a planner, bible journal and a scrapbook.  

The first three tags were foiled.   The verses were stamped on cardstock with VersaFine onyx black and adhered to the tags.

You'll see a lot of shine going on here.  Which I happen to love.

This tag was also foiled and a few of the beautiful Kennedy Grace Creations Frozen sequins were added for another pop of shine.


The last foiled tag was mounted on a metallic die cut for a little extra pizzazz .

The background for this card was smooched with water colors and sequins from the Autumn  Blessings mix were added.

And the last tag was embellished with sweet little flowers from the You In…

Using Complementary Colours

Hello! It's Donna.
I'm back with yet another card using the Friendship Blessings stamp set. I just can't get enough of this stamp. The clean petals make it a dream to colour. I have to admit to going out and purchasing another yellow Copic marker just so I could get the shading I wanted on this image. (I know, I suffer, right?) Once I'd coloured the image in Copics, I cut it out, leaving a white border around the edge. I then used a colour wheel to work out the exact complementary colour of the yellow. It was a blue, with just a hint of red in it. I mixed this colour using my watercolours. You can see that it took two layers to get the colour exactly right - the first set of lines were slightly too blue. The yellow really pops with the complementary colour underneath, don't you think? I spattered some black paint on the background (which I die cut with a wonky stitched rectangle die) before adding the image, and then popping the sentiment up on foam tape. The sent…

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …

You Are Amazing

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my project for Kennedy Grace Creations  using the Just A Rose stamp set, I stamped using Versamark ink and heat embossing using Gold Embossing Powder. I then sprinkled my paper with Green Color Bursts powder. I sprayed it with water and let it do its job. I love the way it turned out. And since the next holiday coming up is St. Patrick's Day here I thought it was fitting. I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed in gold, on black cardstock, and layered it on the little banner piece, I then fanned 3 banner pieces together and attached with a brad. I hope you have enjoyed my project today. It sure was fun making it.

Grace's Bouquet

Jill here on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog with an elegant Get Well card featuring the stamp set Grace's Little Note.  Although I used another stamp set on this card, I highlighted the Kennedy Grace Creationsstamp by coloring it in with bright, vivid Copic markers.  I left the other stamping in  neutral tones or very pale blue to keep the focus on our flowers.  I used a lot of masking on this card, heat- embossing with Ranger'sLiquid Platinum embossing powder of the background floral image from The Ton's stamp, Peony Bouquet and then for the crystal bowl from the same stamp set, I used MFT'sHybrid ink in both Grout Grey and Blu Raspberry so that I could add additional Copic coloring for shading and the water in the bowl.

For added interest, I partial die cut the crystal bowl using the matching die, added some Fun Foam to the back to give it dimension, then adhered it on top of the card base that I had prepped with a layer of embossed dots onto some Crafter's Com…

Happy Birthday

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today. I have a beautiful card with a lovely flower and a soft background using a sentiment stamp.


I stamped and colored the rose from the Just A Rose stamp set and fussy cut it. I used copic markers to color it. I then took the Happy Birthday sentiment stamp from the Vintage Tea Cup stamp set and stamped it repeatedly with Memento London Fog ink to create the background. I really love the font on this sentiment. It has given a beautiful look to this soft background. I adhered a piece of grey cardstock on to an A2 card base and the background on to it. I added the fussy cut flower as well. I added few sequins from Pixie Pink Tutu sequin mix.

That's all from me today! Hope you like my card today. Let me know in the comments.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.

Finetec flowers

Hello there my crafty friends!  During the last 30 day coloring challenge I had a little time to play along with the coloring.  I pulled out my stash of Finetec watercolors.  I love these little gems!  The metallic finish and sparkle is just amazing.  I just couldn't decide on which colors to use so I did several different colors.

To start, I cut several pieces of black cardstock and treated it with anti-static powder.  I then took the main rose stamp from the Just A Rose set and stamped it with Versamark ink.  Just like picking the paint colors, I couldn't decide on a single embossing powder!  I did one in black, one white, one white pearl, one silver, one rose gold and one gold.  Now to paint them all!  I must admit I had lots of fun playing with the Finetec paints. :-)

I'll tease you with one of the finished cards!



I fussy cut all of the flowers out and thought about what to do with them all.  I wanted them to be the focal point of the cards.  I blew the dust off of my…

Watercolored card with Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea

Hello dear friends! Martha Lucia here to share with you my creation using the mood board of Kennedy Grace Creations as inspiration! I decided to use the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set with watercolors, one of my favorites mediums. Take a look at my card:


This month the inspiration book suggested us some colors and I selected the pink and yellow and the tones in between. I stamped the beautiful hydrangea several times over a piece of watercolor paper using Versafine Onix and colored the flowers with Kuretake Gansai and aqua painters.


To complement the color line I cut the sentiment using a set of hello die cuts from Technique Tuesday with the same color coordination and pasted it over the lower part of the card. This is the mood board that we used this month as inspiration and you can also use it for our creations and share it with us in our facebook group.


I hope you my project inspires you and see you soon with another idea!
