Merry Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope that you have had a great week. Today I am sharing another Christmas card with you. This time it is with Kaisercraft’s second Christmas release which is called Emerald Eve. This has a more traditional feel, which I do like in Christmas cards.

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope that you are safe and well. Today I am sharing my first Christmas card of the year which features papers and products from Kaisercraft’s Native Noel Kit. Scrapbook kits are new to Kaisercraft and this Aussie themed Christmas collection is beautiful.

Kaisercraft Products: Native Noel Kit: Festive Berries| Gingham | Burlap Trim | Decorative Dies: DD3351 Protea | DD792 Scalloped Stitched Oval | DD508 Nesting Ovals | Cardstock: CD301 Snow | CD308 Bark | CD512 Card Pack C6 Kraft 

Other: Gold Embossing Powder | Versamark Ink | Hemp | Ribbon 

I decided to create a vintage Christmas card. I used a die which was released earlier this year which coordinated beautifully with the kit. I incorporated the papers and burlap trim and festive ribbon to finish my card.

Explore

Hello everyone! I hope that you are safe and well. Today I am sharing my layout which features products and papers from Kaisercraft’s Fallen Leaves Collection. In my layout, I wanted to explore some mixed media techniques for my background and to add some different textures.

Kaisercraft Products: FALLEN LEAVES Collection: P2923 Warm Breeze| P2924 Winding Roads| P2921 Cozy Corner |CD651 Kraft Cardstock | CT981 Collectables| Ink Pads 757 Permanent Black and IP724 Bark| CS752 Clear Stamp Script| IT007 Mini Designer Template Dots and Dashes| Paper Blooms F628 Honey and F636 Ruby

OTHER: Gesso| Distress Oxide |Modelling Paste

I used some torn papers from the collection to add some interest and used a thin layer of white gesso as a base before adding some distress oxide inks.

I also used Kaisercraft a script stamp and stencil to add more texture as well. My paper blooms that I selected compliment the colours in my photo.

You Fill My Heart With Joy

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. It has been a little while since I have shared a papercraft post. With the delays in shipping, this has affected the release of collections from Kaisercraft however the wait is worth it. This collection is gorgeous. If you have baby photos or need to make some baby cards, Little Treasures will make your task easier.

Kaisercraft Products: LITTLE TREASURES Collection: P2931 Tiny Miracle | P2929 Sweetheart |CT928 Collectables | CD101 Coconut Cardstock

Other: Versamark Ink |White and Pink Embossing Powder |Stamens |Modelling Paste

Kaisercraft has been incorporating past die releases to compliment current paper collections. I have used the sketched circle and heart dies to create my own chipboard pieces which I altered by stamping them in Versamark ink and heat embossing them with white and pink embossing powder.

Kaisercraft Products: LITTLE TREASURES Collection: PP1088 Paper Pad | CS382 Clear Stamps | Decorative Die: DD792 Nested Scalloped Stitched Ovals | DD307 Party |Paper Blooms: F6322 Sage| F627 Coconut| AS254 Natural Alpha Sticker Sheet| Mini Paper Blooms: F644 Coconut| F649 Sage| CD501 White Card Pack Square

Other: Versamark Ink| Embossing Powder| Zig Markers| Distress Ink Bristol Smooth Cardstock| Water Brush Pen| Stamens| Hemp

I heat embossed the stamp and used my zig markers to colour the stamped whimsical image in. To age the background, I used some distress ink.

Happiness Blooms

Hello everyone. I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing with a layout which features the gorgeous papers and products from the Amethyst Collection .

Kaisercraft Products: AMETHYST Collection – P2914 Moonstone |P217 Full Moon |P2916 Crystal |CD301 Snow Cardstock | CT980 Amethyst Collectables |CS3801 Amethyst Clear Stamps |DD705 Swirl Decorative Die |F643 Amethyst Paper Bloom

OTHER: Versamark Ink |White Embossing Powde | Doily |Bling Stickers

I was inspired by the pretty florals in this collection. I also wanted to have distressed/vintage look to my overall layout. I loved this photo! Sometimes you don’t have to have people in your images in order to create, the flowers in the basket were perfect for the look I was going for.

To create the distressed/vintage look, I distressed the edges of my papers as well as randomly ripped papers to adhere to my background. I added a doily plus I layered my blooms.

Tropical Vibes

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing my Sunkissed Collection layout. This collection is filled with anything you need to scrapbook holidays, create tropical themed decorations or even capture memories at the beach or pool.

Kaisercraft Products: Sunkissed Collection: P2905 Long Island| CT979  Sunkissed Collectables |CD651 Kraft Cardstock |CB153 Corrugated Board |CS360 Tiny Dot Clear Stamp |IP757 Permanent Black Ink Pad |KM127 Turquoise Kaiser Mist |FL618 Beach Flourish |KC001 White Paint

OTHER: Clear Gesso |Embossing Powder |Versamark Ink |Twine.

I created my own circular frame using kraft cardstock. I wrapped some twine around it to add dimension. I also wanted more texture so I used corrugated board as my photo mat. I used my paintbrush to apply some turqouise Kaisermist in my background to add splash of colour.

There are quite a number of lovely blooms and leaves available in the collectables of this collection. By adhering them using craft glue and mounting foam it adds depth and layers.

I used some of the flourishes from the beach pack in this cluster. I stamped each with Versamark ink and used different embossing powders to alter them.

Celebrate Today

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I cannot believe that we are approaching the end of the month, one that has been filled with so many highs and lows. I am sharing two projects that feature products from the Native Breeze Collection.

Kaisercraft Products: NATIVE BREEZE Collection – P2859 Wattle Flower |P2858 Gum Leaves |CB153 Corrugated Cardboard |CD651 Kraft Cardstock |CT976 Native Breeze Collectables | Decorative Dies: DD3334 Celebrate Today, DD441 Sari Texture

This collection is abundant with beautiful florals, that can potentially showcase so many occasions. I selected this title as I felt with so much sadness affecting us all with the bushfires, tragedies in the media we needed to find hope and some joy in our days.

OTHER: Zig Markers |Versamark Ink |White Embossing Powder |Gold Embossing Powder |Bristol Smooth Cardstock |Waterbrush Pen |Corner Rounder |Hemp

My second project features the clear stamp from the collection. I stamped it onto Bristol smooth cardstock and used my zig markers to colour it in.

It is such a pretty stamp and watercolour markers really are easy to work with.

Stay safe and happy crafting!

Australiana Dies

Love the look of dies but not sure of what to do with them? Kaisercraft has released a range of Australiana floral dies that not only compliment paper collections but can be used on their own.

Kaisercraft Products: CD511 Card Pack C6 White | Decorative Dies: DD812 Sketched Rectangle Frame | DD3351 Protea | IP743 Spearmint Ink Pad | CS916 Occassions Mini Clear Stamps | CD301 Snow Cardstock | CD302 Coal Cardstock

Other: Copic Markers | Versamark Ink | Clear Embossing Powder | Silver Embossing Powder | White Embossing Powder | Stick It Adhesive | 100 pound Cardstock

I was inspired by the protea die. After having a look at images online to see what colours to use, I explored a stained glass technique and decided that I would use this to showcase the die. I used my copic markers to colour the indentation of the die onto cardstock then heat embossed it with clear embossing ink to create the stained glass look. This technique could be used to create home decor items.

To view this collection of dies, stop by your local stockist or visit the online store.

Happy Birthday

I hope that you are safe and well. Today I am sharing a card with you that features stamps and products from the Lily and Moss Collection by Kaisercraft. I was really inspired by the stamp set and decided that I would use this as my main focus for my card.

Kaisercraft Products: Lily and Moss Collection – PP1083 Paper Pad |CD101 Coconut Cardstock | CS377 Lily and Moss Clear Stamp |CT977 Lily and Moss Collectables |Decorative Dies: DD508 Nesting Ovals |DD794 Ornate Pack 2 |CD511 Card Pack C6 White |F641 Dusty Pink Paper Blooms |SB701 Soft Pink Rhinestones

OTHER: Copic Markers |X-Press It Blending Card |Stamens |Hemp |Memento Tuxedo Black Ink |White Gel Pen

I used my copic markers to colour one of the stamps that are part of the stamp set. Once I had finished colouring the image in, I used a white gel pen to add some details to the largest blooms.

To add a vintage feel to my card, I added some die cut details around my stamped image. I used the corner die from the ornate pack 2 plus some rhinestones.

If you don’t own copic markers, this image would like beautiful watercoloured using watercolour markers. It doesn’t take a long time to colour in, but the results are very pleasing!

If you would like to purchase any of the Lily and Moss Collection, visit your local stockist or go online to the Kaisercraft store.

Have a great week.

Grateful

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I cannot believe how quickly time has passed and that this post will be my last for 2019….more new projects to follow in the new year. My layout features papers from the December release Grand Bazaar Collection from Kaisercraft and it is titled “Grateful.” At the end of each year, we truly have so much to be grateful for, even in times when we are surrounded by hardship such as the bushfires and drought. We can only hope that the new year brings us a positive start and the much needed rain we are all praying for. 

Kaisercraft Products: Grand Bazaar Collection – P2873 Carefree |CD606 Navy Cardstock |CD651 Kraft|CT975 Grand Bazaar Collectables |IT499 Crochet Doily Designer Template |Paper Blooms F628 Honey |F635 Terracotta |F636 Ruby

OTHER: Modelling Paste |Bling Centres |Stamens, DD703 Fabulous Decorative Die

I have altered some paper blooms to use in my layout. To learn how to do this I have a tutorial in a previous blog post or you can click here to view the video.

I really liked the sentiments found in the tags from the collectables and incorporated these into my layout just by tucking them in at the end of my borders. 

I created my own title by using a word die and kraft cardstock. I kept my embellishments muted so they would compliment the papers and also not compete with the colours of the boys’ clothing.
