Some fussy cutting the flowers and then added My Favorite Things Leafy die cuts with cardstocks from my stash. Most are made on black cardstock to match the backgrounds.

Kennedy Grace Creations Grace's Little Note Card

 Today's post is using the Kennedy Grace Creations Grace's Little Note.  So many images are great to compliment another larger image, but today I am going to use this often overlooked one, to make a simple card. One that have intended for a dear friend. 
  First, I loved how fast and easy it was to use this particular image to make a square card, or even to use it to frame another image. I used my MISTI tool to align the stamp for this 4 1/2 inch square center piece, and then just fliped it for each side, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad. The sentiment was from the Time to Blossom stamp set. It is a sweet and thoughtful card and I plan on making more. Great to send to friends far and near. The Sequins were Enchanted Evening which is a collection of  sparkly sequins, stars, seed beads in green tones, and gold, and was the perfect compliment of to the violet colors. 
Here are the Copic Sketch markers I used: YG06, YG11, YG13, V12, V15, V17, 0. 
  Once colored I chose a complementary violet-purple cardstock to bring out more of the deeper violet colors in the flowers. The white paper used for the image and card base are Nenah Bright White #110 pound paper. I added the ribbon to soften the card and bring a feminine touch to it. 
  A card with these pretty flowers and this sweet and thoughtful sentiment is perfect for so many occasions and will delight whomever receives it. For this reason, I plan on making many more of them. Hope you enjoy it as well.
                                                 Yours truly,
                                                        Beverly Jordan

Kennedy Grace Creations Vintage Tea card for Mother's Day




  I am delighted to be a designer for Kennedy Grace Creations and am here today for a card I made with the Vintage Tea Cup stamp set. I just love using this set! It is so fun to decide what colors I am going to make the china!! This was to match with the papers from Graphic 45 that include tea images so went with the blues and pinks. Can you image if you could just find sky blue china to have coffee or tea in?! That would be wonderful!! 
   I have only one mother left, my mother-in-law. She loves to have her coffee and tea, so that is what I thought about when I made this card for her. My husband loved how it turned out, as well. Hope it delights you as much as it did us. 
Directions: Layering the card front with Medium Blue vellum, and the Graphic 45 Botanical tea pattern papers so that the blue peaked out on either side. Stamped and die cut all images and then fussy cut them all out. I always use my MISTI now and do multiple images to have ahead!! ;)  Then I matched my Copic marker colors with that of the Botanical Tea's. Using the dual colors of each, I shaded to have it look like the light was from above. I die cut the doily out of sparkle vellum and glued it and the tea pot down to the top papers. I added pop squares behind the tea cup, and placed it adjacent to the pot. Added the other die cut and bow to add balance to the bottom.
Supplies: Kennedy Grace Creations Vintage Tea Cup stamp set; X-cut Vintage heart doily; Copic Markers: B95, B21, RV21, RV02. Sparkle vellum; Medium Blue vellum; Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Sweet Chamomile; Die cut "Mom" from my stash;  Memento Tuxedo black ink pad; Neenah Bright White cardstock; MISTI; Fiskars scissors.
