Kennedy Grace Creations Sympathy card



Hi, I'm over on Kennedy Grace Creations blog today and am using Beautiful Bloom, Sweet Rose stamp set. Don't you just love that big blossom!!! I used a Gina K die cut of Sympathy in white, overlaid to express the sentiment.
 As for the details, this is actually a card I had made in the past that had no sentiment at all and then right at the time of us having Hurricne Irma, my girlfriend's father died at age 92!! He had had a rich, long life and it was truly a beautiful homecoming service. So I needed a card right away and used this one with the Sympathy laid over the beautiful rose. She loved it! Inside the card, I added "Sending Prayers" sentiment AND a NEW Bible verse that will be coming out this week in our newest stamp releases. Am so excited about this!! It is always nice to put a verse on the left inside page of my cards for a sweet message in addition to a sentiment. Hope you play along with us this week in our New Release Blog Hop. More information to follow,

Other Supplies: I kept it simple by using old papers found in my stash, Prima Marketing Sparkling Spring collection called Giselle; Pink Bazzill in 2 different pink shades, and white smooth paper; Memento Tuxedo Black ink stamped on Neenah Bright white; Copic Sketch markers:  RV04, RV11, RV21, YG06, YG93, YG 95,C01, C03, 0. Jullian Vance stitched rectangles;  Fiskars 12 trimmer with I blade; and of course, the Gina K die cut of Sympathy in this gorgeous cursive script.

Kennedy Grace Creations Elegant Card

Today is my Kennedy Grace Creations day to show off their gorgeous stamps!!  

Today I am using Graces little Note stamp set and Iced Berries Sequins. I chose the colors of Peach and dark Turquoise. Using my Copics sketch markers I colored the petals with R00 first, adding the darker color of R22 at the center of each flower. Then using R20 in strokes going away from the darker color toward the edges of each petal, gives the petals a realistic look. Straight strokes and then lifting up flowing away from the darker color. Following the same method with the following colors for the leaves using YG11, YG63, and BG09. Then using BG70 and second touch color of BG75 for shading around the whole image.  I like to stay with the blues for shading instead of the grays sometimes. 
The whole card just came together so easily but I didn't have ribbon so used R22 to color Seam Binding to match perfectly.
  I didn't have the right shade of ribbon so using Copic R22, and white seam binding, I colored it to match perfectly.

Other supplies included: MISTI, Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spellbinders die with gold Recollections paper as well as their Blue metallic paper; Copic coloring paper was Neenah Bright White 110 lb.; Scrapbook Adhesives 3L tape runner and Crystal lacquer to adhere the sequins where I wanted; Fiskars 12 inch cutter and scissors.

My Minds Eye Layout



My Minds Eye Layout is using their fine papers: Kate & Co. Oxford Lane. This layout originally designed by Sophia who taught this class at Scrapbook Expo a few years ago. I changed it slightly and included the 3D stickers, and my Cricut Explore with Martha Stewart Season's Celebration Cake cartridge to cut the Happy Anniversary title.
Enjoy!
