Kennedy Grace Creations - Grand Opening Blog Hop Party!!!



Hello Crafty Friends! Wow, it has been a long time in coming but today is our official GRAND OPENING!  We are so excited for today!! We have been planning this for a very long time and can't wait to show you.  We have lined up some of the MOST AMAZING, talented ladies in the crafting world on our hop today!  We hope you will enjoy all the amazing projects they will be sharing!


Our Newest release is now available in the Kennedy Grace Creations Online Store.




First, I've got a card to share with you.  I wanted to do something a little different.  So, I stamped this fabulous Sweet Rose onto brown cardstock and then colored it with colored pencils.  And then I added some gorgeous Frosted Cupcakes sequins (one of my favorite mixes!!)
 
 
Recipe:
Kennedy Grace Creations - Beautiful Blooms - Sweet Rose stamp set
Kennedy Grace Creations - Frosted Cupcakes sequin mix
Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cart - circle @ 3 1/4", oval @ 1 1/4"
Cuttlebug - swiss dot embossing folder
pink organza striped ribbon
colored pencils
 
For my second project, I made a Birthday shaker tag.  It features a sentiment found on the Sweet Rose stamp set and the fabulous new sequins mix called Sangria.  I stamped the Happy Birthday on the tag 3 times without re-inking to give it a fading look.
