KGC – Orange & Gold Roses

Hi all! Happy Saturday!  I’m here with a card featuring the Kennedy Grace Creations Splendid Roses stamp set.  This is such a beautiful group of roses!

I don’t usually go for orange, but these turned out quite lovely!   Shiny gold cardstock seemed like a perfect accompaniment to the Melon Berry cardstock.   Since this is such a big focal image, it doesn’t require a lot of fussiness on a card.  I cut the gold and the roses with the largest Rectangle Frame dienamic from MFT.  It certainly makes for no fuss card fronts!  I then added a hello, which was cut with a retired Top Dog Dies die.  To add a bit of dimension, I popped it up on some fun foam, also cut with the die.  Finally, I added in some pretty translucent Moon Beams sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope to see you again soon!

MFT Card Design Superstar

Hi all!  Sorry for the long absence!  Lots of adulting going on and not a lot of crafting!  However, I did carve out a bit of time the other day to create a wedding card for my niece and thought it would be a great way to have a card to enter into the MFT Card Design Superstar contest.

I pulled out a lot of my favorite MFT products to create this card.  I started by cutting a piece of Black Licorice card stock, which I then scored and further cut with Blueprints 16.  Then I cut an additional piece of Black Licorice with little flap die from Blueprints 16. This was then glued down, creating my pocket card.   I then used my MISTI to stamp the Lace Background with Versamark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  To build onto the card, I cut the largest Circle Stitched Frame die with cream card stock, as well as the pieces of the Bride & Groom.

While I had my Lace Background stamp in the MISTI, I also stamped my wedding dress and embossed it as well with clear embossing powder.  I positioned my circle frame to be just above the curve.  The tuxedo and dress were glued down, adding in some rhinestones and pearls for buttons and added bling on the dress.  My sentiment is from Together Forever.  It’s stamped in VersaFine Onyx ink on another piece of cream cut with Blueprints 13.  To add that touch of shine, I embossed that as well with clear embossing powder.  The sentiment is popped up on some dimensionals.

LOVE the subtlety of the embossing on this!

Finally, inside I cut an additional two pieces of cream card stock.  One piece was cut using the large frame from Blueprints 16.  The other was cut with the same frame, as well as the curved piece to match it up with the curve of the black.  The curved piece was then cut with Gift Card Grooves to add my gift card.  The other piece was stamped with another sentiment from Together Forever and it was also embossed with clear embossing powder.

Hope you like the card!  Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hopefully, I’ll be back to a bit more regular posting soon!

FTHS September Blog Hop

Hi all!   Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We have a Random Image Theme this month. Our designers are each showing a project created with an image that was randomly assigned from the store.

If you have arrived from Brenda, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

Here is my project, using Great Pumpkin Birdbrains.

FTHS Welcome Fall Sept Hop

When I received my image, I was sweltering away with real feel temperatures of 105-110 degrees.  I was dreaming of fall and fall temperatures!  My time was limited so needed to do something quick and easy.  I printed my Birdbrains and cut them out with the Blueprints 13 frame.  I left my card stock in the frame, grabbed some Distress Ink and a blending tool and another printout of the image.  I fussy cut the second copy and used a piece of washi tape to secure it over the top.  I blended my sky and grass, then removed the mask and colored my image.  I then popped it out of the frame and loved the crispness of the border.  Finally, I cut one of the sentiments out using a Sentiment Strip die, popped it up on dimensionals and added some rhinestones.  Quick & easy!  (Really, I think I spent 15 minutes!)

Now head over to Doni and see what she has created.

Thanks for hopping with us today.  Hope to see you again soon!

KGC Thanks a Bunch

Hi all! Hope you are enjoying your Labor Day weekend!  I’m here and on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog today with a project I did back in JUNE!  *GASP!*  These were actually the thank you gifts for my kids’ teachers, the school nurse and my daughter’s aide.  Because we had four gifts to purchase, I had to keep it small and the grocery store florist came through big time.  They had these great little orchids for $5.  I picked out four, made up sweet tags for each gift bag and they were done!KGC Purple Orchid Tag

This was my favorite of the four tags.  I love the richness of the colors and it matched the orchid so well.  I used my MFT die-namics again to create the tags.  I stamped one of the floral images from Grace’s Happy Heart in VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder on each tag.  Then I used a variety of Distress Inks and other dye inks to blend each tag.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Grace’s Little Note in VersaFine Onyx and embossed that with clear embossing powder.

Simple, but packing that big punch of WOW!  Here are the other three tags I created.

KGC – Just a Rose

Hi all!  Welcome to the August release & blog hop for Kennedy Grace Creations!
For my cards, I used the Just a Rose stamp set.  Believe it or not, I used the same embossing powder on each card.  It’s WOW! Florida Sunset embossing powder and it is so gorgeous!  My mind was blown when I did the black card and had a completely different result! I kept my cards really simple, allowing for the roses to pop.  On the first card, I embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder over VersaFine Onyx ink.  I added in sequins from Hollywood Glam and Moonbeams.

For my second card, I went with a big sophistication factor.  I used a gold card base and allowed the black & gold panel to pop.  The sentiment is from Grace’s Happy Heart.  The sequins are from Mocha Vanilla Latte.

KGC – Sunflowers for You

Hi there!  I’m up on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog today.  Before we start peeking some new products from Kennedy Grace Creations, I wanted to share with you a quick one featuring the Beautiful Blooms – Sunflower  that was released last month.

When I was growing up, we had sunflowers in our backyard.  I remember sitting at the top of a step ladder to reach the tippy-top of the sunflowers.  They are such beautiful flowers — even if they aren’t all that cooperative showing their faces.

I wanted to do something unexpected for some friends recently and found bunches of sunflowers at the grocery store, which made this so easy.  I created a simple tag using MFT die-namics.  I stamped my sunflower in VersaMark on watercolor paper and heat embossed with Zing Chestnut embossing powder.  I love that it made the center that deep brown of the flower.  I then colored them up using Distress Inks (a mix of Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn for the leaves).  The sentiment was stamped in VersaFine Onyx and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then added the bow in brown gingham and finished it off with some sequins from Mocha Vanilla Latte.  They made sweet little bouquets!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you’ve enjoyed my project!  See you again soon!

FTHS August Blog Hop

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. We have a “Use Your Stash” Theme this month. Our designers are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects.

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store. And one lucky commentator on the FTHS blog has the chance to win a $ 15 voucher.

If you have arrived from Brenda, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

Here is my project, using Hang Loose Birdbrain and from my stash I used the following Stickles (in a color other than clear) and Glitter Dots.  My craft room was recently relocated & downsized so things are a bit crazy in the craft room.   It’s amazing what I have in my stash.  Stickles in so many colors and I primarily use the clear.  The Glitter Dots were a very favorite embellishment for a while — I loved adding the sparkle with a relatively low profile and no mess of actual glitter!

FTHS160 Aug Blog Surfboard Stash

I used the surfboard from the Hang Loose Birdbrain set.  I love that Faith does Birdbrain with the board, without the board and the board alone.  I colored it up using some tropical colors and cut it out with an MFT die.  I pulled some designer papers (also a stash — a ridiculous stash!) and cut it out with an MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX die.  It’s matted on a piece of yellow card stock (sorry, can’t remember what color) cut with Blueprints 13, of course.  The sentiment is from an MFT set.

Now head over to Doni and see what she has created.

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Sunday Aug 7th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday Aug 10th.
