Autumn Wishes Card

Good Day Everyone!
Today I had a chance to finish this card that I started this past weekend:

Here's the front view:

First, I heat embossed the gorgeous leaf images from the stamp set onto the smooth side of a piece of watercolor paper (I used Strathmore 140 #) with Ranger Orange Blossom Embossing Powder. I then used Gansai Tambi watercolors to add color (I used  #'s 33, 36, 43, 44 and splattered with #91). I let each layer of color air dry. When I was happy with all the layer of colors I then added splatters using the same colors plus the gold colored #91. On a piece of SSS vellum I heat embossed the Autumn Wishes sentiment with Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder, tearing the edges and also gold embossing the edges.

I wrapped gold thread around this front panel which was then placed on a gold-embossed paper and then on an Avery Elle card base (from The Citrus Collection). I then accented with various sequins.

I love how the colors all go together perfectly - a gorgeous card celebrating Autumn.

I am giving this to my friend (and neighbour!) - just to let her know how special she is!

I hope that you are enjoying your Fall so far - it's my absolute favorite time of the year!

Take time to create - it will warm your heart!

Kennedy Grace Creations July Release Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends and Welcome to our July New Product release and blog hop!
We are so excited to be back with New Products! We had such a successful Grand Opening - we could not be more proud and honored to have had such an AMAZING TURN OUT!  It makes all of us so happy!!!
We hope that you will enjoy all of the amazing projects that our Glam Squad has to share!
Our Newest release is now available in the Kennedy Grace Creations Online Store.
What I have created for you today is this fun and bright birthday shaker card:

This is the video where I make the card (or watch on my YouTube Channel):
First I stamped a piece of Strathmore water color paper with the roses image from the new Splendid Roses stamp set, then I embossed it with sparkling gold embossing powder. I then water colored in the image with Zig Markers (Dark Pink for the roses & May Green for the leaves). I covered both roses and leaves with a clear Wink Of Stella glitter pen for even more sparkle.

I then used the WRMK Fuse Tool to make a shaker pocket into which I put the card panel and sequins (newly released Tropical Treasure & Moonbeams sequins). To add a personal message, I'll simply adhere a paper on the back (this card is for one of my sisters). Such a vibrant and beautiful card - I'm simply in love with it!

In addition to the above card, I also made this tag card, again using the Splendid Roses stamp set along with the fuse tool (I cannot stop using it lol!):

One of the first things I thought of when I saw this Splendid Roses stamp set was to use it for art journaling. I call this entry "Life is All About Love":

There are 3 new stamp sets released for July along with 4 new sequin mixes:

Scatter Kindness Card (Using Zig Markers)

Thanks so much for coming by!
I have a water colored Spreading Kindness card to share today:

This is the video where I make the card (or watch on my YouTube Channel here).

I used the beautiful Kindness stamp set from Winnie & Walter (with Evelin T Designs):
Kindness Stamp Set
This is a gorgeous set based on sharing/spreading kindness which is something that we all need more of. Our son, Ethan, picked it out when we were on the W&W website. This is my first time making a card with it. Ethan has already made one:
He is very proud of his card!

Here is a side view of my card:

These are the products used:
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers:
Recollections Clear Gold Sparkling Embossing Powder (at Michaels)
Pretty Pink Posh Sequins:

So let's all spread more kindness... that's what my boys do every single day - they're the best teachers!

Come back again - I would super duper love that!!

Peace To All!
