Sending Prayers

Welcome back to the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog!  I'm Jill and I've created an encouragement card for you using the Time to Blossom stamp set and new sequin mixes Cotton Candy and Chantilly Cream.  After all the recent tragedies, I felt the need to create this type of card.

Using Canson XL watercolor paper cut to ~3.5" square, I stamped the main floral image with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.  I masked the image with some Molotow Art Masking Fluid, letting it dry.  I then water-colored the background stripes using Daniel Smith Mayan Blue Genuine watercolor in varying intensity.  When that was dry, I spattered flecks of about 4 different colors (I might have been a little heavy-handed here!).  Once dry, I removed the masking fluid and water-colored the floral image with several complementary Daniel Smith watercolors.  I also used a little clear Wink Of Stella on the light portions of the leaves and the tips of the flowers.  I then used a SSS Stitched Squares die on this p…

Grace's Little Note

Love and Laughter,


Hi crafters! Today I am sharing a watercolor card I made using "Grace's Little Note" stamp set.  I stamped the image on The Langton watercolor paper using Stazon ink in black.   This works great it doesn't smear.  I then used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.  I love the rich smooth texture of  these watercolors in comes in a pallet of  36 yummy colors.
The background paper is form Heartfelt Creations "Blushing Rose" collection the purple blended perfectly with the colors I used to color the gorgeous flowers. 
I used a die from Frantic Stamper "Stitched Rounded Rectangles" one of my fave's.  I then added a "forever" sentiment along with Frosted Cupcakes sequins from the Kennedy Grace Designs store. I hope everyone enjoyed my post and thanks for stopping by!!

Blessings on Your Special Day

Hello everyone!! Welcome to my inspiration post on the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog. I have used the newly released Friendship Blessings for my card today.


I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4.25" x 5.5" and drew a slight curve towards the lower part and cut it out. I stamped the flowers from the Friendship Blessings stamp set repeatedly along the lower and right border with Memento London Fog ink. I also stamped the sentiment "Blessings on your special day" from the same stamp set using the same grey ink. I colored the flowers using Copic markers - V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers, Y38 and Y35 for the pollen, G99, YG67, YG63 and YG61 for the leaves. I adhered a panel of purple card stock on to a top folding A2 card base and then adhered the image panel on it by leaving a tiny margin at the top. I added Nuvo drops in Violet Galaxy color for some final touch.

How do you like this card? Do let me know. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments.

Christmas Cards using KGC Stamps

Hi everyone, Heidi here! Today I woul like to show you these Christmas cards.  Now, maybe you’re thinking: “But KGC doesn’t carry Christmas stamps (yet)!“ That’s true, but today I’ll show you a way to create Christmas cards with their stamps nonetheless.
To get these cards started I stamped one of the flowers stamps from the Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set called “Grace’s Little Note“ three times onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper using Versafine “Onyx Black“ ink and using my MISTI and clear heat embossing afterwards. I used two separate flowers from each stamp print and this way you can create two cards from three stamped flower images. I also stamped two candles from the Create a Smile stamp set called “With Candles and Glitter“ on the same paper in the same way. If you don’t have a candle stamp you can draw a candle yourself, find a candle image on line and use/trace that or when you would like to go a little mixed media, find candle images in, for example, magazines …

Bloom shaker

Hello my fellow crafters!  I hope you are enjoying a lovely fall day today!  I'm stopping by to share my latest project with all of you.  Today's card features the lovely Time to Blossom stamp set as well as the Honey Bee sequins.

I had an idea to make a shaker card since I hadn't made one in a really long time.  Then I proceeded to make it more complicated than it really was!  So to save you that headache, I'm going to just give the basics of what I did. I cut a circle out of Neenah Solar white cardstock, as well as cutting the same circle out of a transparency and a piece of vellum.  I lined the vellum up with the opening in the white cardstock, used my embossing buddy and carefully stamped the flower across both pieces of paper.  I then added clear embossing powder and heat set it.

I turned the vellum over to the back and colored it with Copic markers.  I then used the same markers on the stamped portions on the white cardstock.  The colors were Y11, 13, 17 19, YG …

October Mood Board

Hello, Rachel here today with my take on the October Mood board!

I immediately knew that I wanted that black to be my card base, but a black base is normally so dull. Then I remembered this leaf cover die that I have in my stash and thought it would be the perfect back drop for the gorgeous Splendid Roses stamp set!

I started by cutting out my background from basic black cardstock and then adhering it to the front of a white card base. I covered the back of another piece of white cardstock with double sided tape and then cut my cover die from it again. The tape made it just thick enough that the die cuts through the paper, but leaves the backing intact. It was then a simple matter to color my die cut leaves with my copics before popping out the small pieces and fitting them in like a puzzle with my card base. This was my background matches the greens that I used to color my floral with.
Next, I stamped my flowers on another piece of white cardstock and then colored them in with my co…

With Loving Kindness Card

Beverly Jordan here today with a card inspired by the October Mood board.


For today's card, I am using Kennedy Grace Creations Kindness Medley stamp set and Autumn Blessing Sequins Mix from our Fall 2017 releases.
First I stamped the flowers from the set and colored it in with my Copics in the following colors: YR04, Y35, YG06, YG13, V15, V17, C1, C3.  I chose colors that would match with this month's mood board!! So yummy!!
Other supplies include: Rectangle stitched dies, the curve die is from my stash as well. Embossing powder: American Crafts Brand Zing Metallic finish in Copper used with Versa Mark ink pad, and two way glue for the flower centers. Black cardstock and Neenah Bright White for papers. Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad for stamping the flowers themselves.
