Best Friends

I'm back again after a brief hiatus. Our air conditioning broke again which meant I was sequestered in our bedroom with the portable air conditioner and all the pets. It was still 85-90 in there every day, but at least I avoided the 105 degree house! But that's fixed now and I'm trying to get back into the swing of things after being gone for a week. It's actually a little difficult!

That brings us to today's card! I created it for the current Can You Case It? pet challenge.

I kept it simple since my mojo is still a little on the lackluster side, but I did color my image to look like my Great Dane and his favorite kitty. He just loves his little kitty sister! I added a little bit of grass around the bottom of them to keep them from looking like they were just floating in the middle of nowhere!

Kennedy Grace Creations August Release Blog Hop


I created my card using the brand new Time to Blossom set and the previously released Moonbeams sequins.

I cut several hexagons using a die and then stamped my image on them selectively to highlight different portions of the stamp. I colored them in using Copics and then set them aside. I spritzed my card base with some Gold Lame mist from Heidi Swapp and then let it dry. I arranged my hexagons where I wanted them so I could plan where to stamp my sentiment. By using my MISTI, I was able to do this without actually adhering my hexagons first. I stamped my sentiment and heat embossed in gold to match the misting. I adhered my hexagons with some foam tape and then added a sprinkling of the gorgeous Moonbeams sequins to finish it off.

To celebrate or August Release we will be giving away to 1- lucky winner a $15.00 gift certificate to our online store.

Sweet Birthday

Today's card was created for my Aunt's birthday using the color challenge from Can You Case It.

Since this card has to travel clear across the country, I wanted to make it fairly flat without too much dimension. I didn't want it to get smooshed in the mail! I cut a panel using a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die and then stamped my image in the corner using my MISTI. I colored it in with my Copics (yellow roses are her favorites!). When I was finished coloring, I heat embossed the sentiment slightly overlapping the flowers to tie it all together. I finished it off by adhering the panel directly to a card base and adding just a few Moonbeams sequins.

Dream Big

Today's card is one that was created for the current CASology challenge - dream.

The first concept I had was of a cat dreaming of being a lion, but imagine my surprise when I didn't actually have a lion stamp! I did, however have these cute images from Mama Elephant, so I combined them to create the horse dreaming of becoming a Pegasus! I simply stamped my images and then used a Copic multi-liner to sketch in the dream cloud by hand. I colored my images with Copics and added a silver heat embossed sentiment from a random set I found in my stash. I finished it off by adding a little clear Wink of Stella to the Pegasus's wings, horn, and hooves. What's a Pegasus without a little shimmer, right?
