Beck Beattie shows gifting is a special affair with Pen and Ink

Hey there Kaisercraft followers, Beck Beattie here to share with you a sweet project I created using the new ‘Pen and Ink’ collection.  Such a versatile collection that today I wanted to take the collection a little ‘off the page’ to a gift bag.

 

Kaisercraft Products: Pen and Ink Collections: P2507 Chandelier | P2509 Journalled | P2510 Wallpaper | SS360 Sticker Sheet | F666 Black Paper Blooms | F628 Honey Paper Blooms| LDB1056 Foam Tape| Others: gift bag, cream twine

Sometimes I like to pick up some plain kraft and white paper bags that I can then decorate to the perfect themed gift.  It is so lovely to know you are creating something special for someone as part of their gift making it all that more special.

Adding a pase paper as a start I then enjoyed layering the papers and stickers to create my cluster base.

The stickers and florals were perfect for adding some detail to the cluster and also the ‘theme’ of the gift bag.

Finishing off with some twine and florals made it just perfect.  I also added a little twine to the handle of the bag as I feel it finishes it off perfectly.  If you like you could even add an additional flower here.

I loved adding an additional birthday message to the back of the gift bag as well.

You can also finish off your gift bag by personalising the base with your name as creating it.

I hope you enjoyed my share today and that I might have inspired you to create one of your own!

Happy Crafting!

Creating a Sticker mat behind a photo by Jowilna Nolte.

Welcome to today’s post. I love the sticker sheets with each range, but I don’t use them nearly enough. This month I am on a mission to try and use my stickers in creative ways
on my layouts and cards. And in fact I have managed to use almost every single sticker from my sheets -mission accomplished.

For this layout I stencilled a portion behind my photo using the Kaisercraft brick stencil in orange and pink ink.
On top of the stenciling I added stickers from the Fleur Collection that just peak out behind my photo creating an interesting effect.
The stickers look like a creative matting behind the photo with lots of interest.

A few flowers and a title cut from the patterned paper sheet is used around the photo – because who doesn’t love these gorgeous flowers.

A favorite sticker for me are these washi tape strips. They are so versatile.

What have you done lately with this beautiful range lately? And more importantly your stickers?
Share how you are inspired by the sticker sheets this month with your unique creations – we would love to see your work.

“LOVE” a Pen and Ink Layout Tutorial by Renee Aslette

Hello Friends,

Today is all about the “LOVE”.

I have used the Pen and Ink Collection to create this Tuesday Tutorial.

I began with the background P2510 Wallpaper, then I tore a piece to the left and right of P2511 Lacey paper.

I always like to layout my embellishments and photo mat so that I know where they will sit.

I then set about creating a stamped background with the CS324 Clear Stamp set from this collection.  I used the Kaisercraft Ink Pad – Black and the floral stamp from the set.  Here is what it looked like before I lay everything down.

Some of it does get covered, but there will be pieces that pop out.

Then it is just a matter of layering.

Below you will find a video tutorial that will show you how I created the layers.

Here are some close-ups:

I love how this collection can be used with the neutral colourings, or you could add a pop of colour.

I added a little Printed Tape – Arrows Black to this layout, and it was the perfect combination.

Here you can see some of the stamping detail.

DD443 Decorative Die – Film Edges was used for a piece of the layering along with all the beautiful pieces from the Collectables and the Sticker Sheet.

Here is the video:

Just Because Smile Vintage Frame Layout by Mabel Sim

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here and I am back to share with you a tutorial on a layout I made, inspired by the new Pen & Ink collection.

As I have the intention to layer 2 specialty paper ROUND FRAME together, hence I had trimmed out the inner circle to form a legit frame for pop up.

As seen here, I had glued cardboard pieces onto the back of the frame for dimensional effect.

Typically, when I am adding dimensional effect on large surfaces, I would use cardboard pieces instead of dimensional adhesives as it is more cost-effective. Just a small tip for you. 🙂

I also tried to made my own flower embellishments. Hence I had cut out a circle. Note that your circle need not be perfect, as the imperfect circumference will add character to your rolled-up flowers.

Next step to take will be to cut swirls for rolling. Note that the width of each swirl will determine the height and compactness of your flower.

A great tool to have will be to use your tweezer and roll the swirls from outside in and then place a good dollop of glue at the centre of the swirl as it will act as the base for the flower.

Check out the few I made!

Moving on to my background, I had used my makeup sponge with inks from inkpad and press it down over the stencil to create some additional interest to the background.

I had chosen to use 2 different tones of browns for variation.

Once my background is done, I proceed to mount on my round frame on top.

Proceed to form your layering and clusters. I had torn off papers for the rugged look as well as to build my clusters even on top of my frame. Dimension is a key to make your layout looks nice and professional.

Moving on to finishing touch, I am stuffing black sewing tread under various spots.

As well as to splatter diluted black gesso onto the background.

Voila! My layout is completed. Here are some close up shot~

Vintage Card Tutorial

Hello everyone! I hope that you have had a safe and restful Easter break with your loved ones. Today I am sharing a vintage, inchie inspired birthday card using the beautiful Pen and Ink Collection which is being released by Kaisercraft this month. It has soft muted tones and beautiful coordinating stamps and dies.

My focal image is this stamped butterfly. It was created by stamping the clear stamp onto some script paper from the paper pad and fussy cutting it out.

To add dimension to the papers, all were inked with bark ink and distressed. This adds to the vintage feel.

A selection of complimentary flowers in various sizes and in muted tones was added to the base of the card.

A sentiment was added from the paper pad and adhered using foam tape.

Below I have a video tutorial which demonstrates the construction of the card.

Tuesday Tutorial by Jowilna Nolte

I love creating layouts using more than 1 range of papers. Finding ways of incorporating different papers and elements together is so much fun.
Today I am showing you how I used the 2 ranges from this month together to create a double page layout. And I simply love it!

and


In my opinion it adds lots of interest. It can also help you use up all your stash that may be stumping your creativity a bit.
Use what you have and find ways to make it work together beautifully.

Adding Interest to your flowers

For my flower centers I used a custom mixture of different coloured micro-beads and glitter. I wanted to add some dimension to the flowers
and this was the perfect way to do it without too much bulk. The different colours also helped to pull together all the different colours in my layout.

step 1 – Cut out all the flowers for your layout using your Precision scissors from the Moonstone paper sheet.

step 2 – Add a small amount of dimensional glaze where you want to add the beads.

step 3 – Lightly sprinkle the micro-bead mixture over the glaze and leave to dry. Decant the excess beads back into the container.

Adding colour to the background

To pull everything together on my background I used different inks in green and purple, representing the two different ranges of papers.

step 1 – Add a few drops of ink onto a small plastic packet. Lightly mist the ink with water.

step 2 – Stamp the ink onto the patterned paper sheets you are using on your background.


step 3 – Leave the ink to dry completely and then cut your different papers into strips to use on your background.

The inked paper strips form my background and the inked pieces adds interest and ties everything together beautifully.

Cluster the flowers in the top left and right hand corners to frame your photos and paper strips in the middle.

A few dark purple elements like the stamped triangle and buttons pick up on the dark purple pieces throughout the layout.

Products used
Kaisercraft Products: Misty Mountain Collection: P2497 Marbled | P2500 Light Leaks | CS323 Clear Stamps |  PP1040 Paper Pad |
Fairy Garden Collection: P2495 Moonstone | T316 Precision scissors | T317 Craft scissors
Other: dimensional glaze | inks | sewing machine | micro-beads

I hope this inspires you to try using different collections together for something new. I love creating with different collections – using what I love from each one.
Until next time, Love Jowilna!
