I am a retired nurse rediscovering my artistic roots. I make handmade cards, and sometimes include small works of art on my blog as well. I will provide a primary products list and a description of the techniques that I used to make each card, and give credit for layout or design of a card if not of my own unique creation.

Kennedy Grace Creations- Beautiful Blooms- Sweet Rose
Here's my first card using stamps from Kennedy Grace Creations. I wanted to create a window card with the sentiment on the inside panel. For the window, I used a MFTs die (I die cut it at the end of making the card). First off, I stamped and masked the rose images (three in all), then used an Altenew stencil with their shimmer ink spray for the background. It is very shimmery, which you can't really see here. Once dry, I removed the masks and began my Copic coloring. I wanted the yellow roses to be very light, so I left some white edges along some of the petals. However, they didn't end up as light as I had wished. The pink is a nice dusty rose color which I think complements the yellow quite well. Once the leaves were done, I went to work on the window portion of the card. I die cut the window, then mounted the panel onto some fun foam for dimension. I then mounted that onto a NSW #110 card base that I had die cut out the window in the same location as the stamped panel. I then stamped and embossed the birthday sentiment inside the window. I added some sequins from Kennedy Grace Creations as well. It was a complimentary pack, so I don't know the name. I also decided to cut down the size of the card so that the stamped panel was only 4" in height. That allowed me to color the bottom edge of the card with the Gold Wink of Stella, which I also added to the middle of the flowers. I was very happy with how this card came out, using products that I had never used before.
I hope you enjoyed this, happy stamping!
