Happy New Year From Kennedy Grace Creations

Happy New Year to you all!  I'm kicking off 2018 for Kennedy Grace Creations.  This month we are switching it up a bit and instead of having a mood board, we have a fun Tic Tac Toe Board for inspiration.

I picked the bottom row to inspire my card so I will be using buttons, sequins and flowers on my creation.  It seemed so perfect with all the wonderful flower sets and the awesome sequin collections.  I chose to use the beautiful stamp set Kindness Medley and a wonderful sequin collection called Enchanted Evening.  Here's what happened -

I stamped the flower (Tic) image three times on heavyweight vellum with VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I colored the flowers on the back of the vellum using Copic Markers.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaFine ink to get the nice dark image.  I love the size of this stamp which is also in the Kindness Medley set.  I put my ScanNCut to work cutting out the sentiment while I fussy cut the line of vellum stamped flowers.  I generally find vellum a challenge to work with because it can be difficult to hide  the adhesive.  No problem here, the coloring hit it nicely.

I added a few sequins (Tac) from the Enchanted Evening mix.  This mix is so nice!  I'm really wanting to make a shaker with it.  Just take a look at all these yummy sequins and beads -

To complete my row, I got out some tiny buttons (Toe) from my stash.  They matched the flower color so perfectly.  The buttons were tied with a thin gold twine and adhered to the card base to finish things off.

I need to let you all know how much I appreciate your support and kind comments.  I love playing with all kinds of crafty stuff and that fact that you take the time to look and leave comments means so much to me.  I want to end this post by wishing you all a new year full of health, happiness, peace, prosperity and more than plenty of love, because that my friends is what it is all about.

With much aloha,
