Kennedy Grace Vintage Tea Cup





    I know the Summer Coffee Blog Hop is over but here is a card I made just for the fun of it!! I love using Kennedy Grace Vintage Tea Cup stamp set and can say it is my fav' of all the Kennedy Grace Creations Stamps. I love the roses engraved on this beautiful tea pot and cup and enjoy choosing different colors to go together.
    I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored it with Copic Sketch Markers in Y11, Y13, Y15, 0, YG06,YG11, BG10, BG11, BG13, C1, C3, C5, and a Multiliner in 0.3. I stamped the border and the cup first using my MISTI tool, and then masked the cup and stamped the tea pot. By setting the pair over a bit, there was plenty of room for the sentiment. The Sequins were Sunshine on the Daisies which is so many shapes and in such a pretty yellow and irridescent. I hope you are enjoying your summer and have time to have coloring fun like I do!
   As for the rest of the card, it consists of Graphic 45 Courture Gorgeous pattern paper matched with 2 cardstocks that highlight the Copic colors. And I added a soft yellow seam binding bow.
You can see my post over on Kennedy Grace Creations Blog too.

Melissa Frances Shabby Chic album






Using all Melissa Frances pieces, I put this adorable album together. I love using my Zutter Bind-it-all to connect all the pages and it stands up better that way. It is a MF album which I took apart and rebound after gluing all the papers together like I wanted. This came as a kit and is not my original work but "scraplifted" as I saw fit. Hope you enjoy it!

Patriotic Kennedy Grace Splendid Roses





Hi, I am featuring this card to celebrate Independence Day over on the Kennedy Grace Blog.  I am using the Kennedy Grace Splendid Roses stamp set because it seemed the perfect way to use the red, white and blue for a totally Patriotic themed card. I loved that the sequin lot is For Our Hero's which is a fabulous mix of sequins in red, white, blue, and silver (best seen in the last picture), and added beads in different sizes as well (best seen in the 3rd picture). How fun and so perfect!!
  The vibrant colors I chose are Copic Sketch Markers in: R22, R27, R29, B18, B21, B24, C1, C3, 0, and a Multiliner 0.3.
  The papers were Recollections blue cardstock, and Jillibean Soup Staples II in Red Salt which is a chevron pattern on one side and red with dots on the other. I chose the chevron! The stamp "God Bless America! is by Motivet Rubber Stamps, CM 052 F.
  I hope you are enjoying your July 4th with your family and friends and take time out to thank our MilitaryVeterans who make it all possible!! Happy Independence Day, America!!

Authentique Dapper Father's Day layout

Using Authentique Dapper collection, I fussy cut the cute automoble and popped it up for dimension.

                                            Embellished with Ki Memories Red Puffies star.
I used my Cricut Explore to cut out Father's Day with yellow and navy cardstock. Triple matted the pic with more fun papers. So loving my collection of Authentique Dapper projects and how I know my husband is going to love them!! Hope you have enjoyed all of them too!
Here's what the two layouts look like together as well.
