Kennedy Grace Creations March Release Blog Hop!

Welcome, crafting and cardmaking friends!!! This is a Kennedy Grace Creations blog hop! We are debuting our newest 4"x6" clear stamp set - Sweet Baby Mine! (PLUS- we have some new sequins to coordinate with this set, called Baby Blanket). Please hop along through to see ou talented design team's creations!

I just love this little hippo from the new set! She's simply adorable! I stamped her and then colored her in with my Copics and did a little fussy cutting (even though I hate it!) so I could put here on a shaker card because I just knew I had to use these beautiful new sequins with her!

I started my shaker portion by cutting a piece of white cardstock with a stitched rectangle die and then adding a stitched circle to the center. I used another stamp set (Grace's Little Notes) to add flowers around the circular cut out. I then used my Copics to color the flowers and used colors that would coordinate not only with the sequins but with my already colored hippo.

I adhered some acetate to the back of my panel and then used 2 layers of foam tape on the back so the sequins would have plenty of room to move. (That's my little secret. Two layers. One layer just never seemed to be enough space for me!)

I cut and prepared my card base and then using my MISTI, I stamped my sentiment where it would appear centered in my circular cutout. I added my sequins on top of my card base and then carefully adhered my panel on top. Using some more adhesive, I attached my little hippo image in the right bottom corner to finish it off. Super cute!

  1. What a beautiful shake Rachel. The focal image is sweet and the sequins are really pretty!

  2. This is too adorable, I actually squealed when I saw your card - it couldn't be any cuter! I love the little hippo (coloured to perfection), I am a big fan of shakers, and the flowers around the shaker... oh my! This is probably one of my favourite cards of the whole hop! :-)

  3. What an awesome idea to use on of the flower stamp sets from Kennedy Grace around the edge of the circle, it compliments the hippo so nice!
