Kennedy Grace Creations Grand Opening + Blog Hop


Hey folks! Wow it has been a long time in coming but today is our official GRAND OPENING!  We are so exited for today!! We have been planning this for a very long time and can't wait to show you.  We have lined up some of the MOST AMAZING talented ladies in the crafting world on our hop today!  We hope you will enjoy all the amazing projects they will be sharing!

Our Newest release is now available in the Kennedy Grace Creations Online Store.




 I am here to show off the brand new Beautiful Blooms Sweet Rose stamps set. It's such a GORGEOUS set with amazing detail and comes with lots of different sentiments.

For my card today, I stamped my image on watercolor paper and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. You could use any watercolor you wanted, but I really wanted the heavier feel of Gansai Tambi Watercolor. I thought pinks and teal would be fab, so I went with that! I kept the colors pretty loose and let the water do most of the work. Easy peasy.


Instead of black, I used a grey ink on the sentiment and diagonal strip background. I wanted to make sure the focus stayed on that fabulous flower. Also, because shiny things make me ridiculous happy, I added some silver heat embossed cardstock at the top and bottom of my panel.

To finish off my card I added a couple of the clear sequins from the new At The Beach and Vintage Tea Cup Sequin Mixes. Both of these mixes are great peeps! Although I just used the clear ones in each, the color combinations in them are awesome!

To celebrate our GRAND OPENING - Kennedy Grace Creations will be giving away 3 random winners $25.00 gift certificates to our Online Store.

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.


I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a …

Concord & 9th - Hello Lovely

Hey folks!

It's been soo long since I've been able to share a card with you all and I'm so happy to be back! Now I know folks are busy sharing their Christmas creations and I may have one or two before Christmas, but I gotta be honest peeps, I'm just happy to be coloring again.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.


The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
