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.
Hello everyone. Welcome to Challenge # 15! I made a list of challenge ideas with the whole team and one of the ideas is a Scraplift challenge. We all agreed this is gonna be fun and interesting! Now, for the challenge, all you have to do is scraplift a Kaisercraft DT members’ layout or card!
Post your layout or card along with the photo/image of the project you scraplifted and the DT member’s name as well, of course.
Interpretation is all up to you but we would love to see the resemblance at least from the original. Like on my layout, instead of scattering flowers, I scattered pearls instead. I also added some stickers and doily.
A Design Team member will choose two submissions just before the next challenge starts which will be on February 8th, 2020 – so you could be in with a chance to win a collection pack.
For your chance to win upload a photo of your project to the KAISERCRAFT CORNER Facebook group with the hashtag #KCCHALLENGE15SCRAPLIFT and add the photo to the CHALLENGE #15 Photo Album (this needs to be done for your entry to count).
Good luck everyone and I look forward to seeing all your projects.
Challenge #14 Winners In no particular order are:
I love all stitched hearts and the patterns peeking under them. Great choice of patterns and the paper strips and flowers on the bottom of the photo balanced everything prettily.
What I love about this layout are the choice of bold color background, the blocks of squares and the well-balanced placement of all the elements.
Congratulations, ladies! Please contact Danka via email at – email@example.com – with your address and what number challenge winners you are… thank you! You can see other entries in this challenge over on the Kaisercraft Corner Facebook page in the album section of the group.
Hi Everyone, welcome to Challenge Corner No: #14 – Stitching!!! I don’t know if you have noticed but I love stitching on my projects, especially my layouts, you can colour match the threads to your beautiful papers and I also find it very relaxing. The “Oh Happy Day’ is a fabulous collection for adding stitching with all those pretty bright coloured papers, so I used some bright red thread which stands out on the beautiful blue paper. So come on, show me your projects with some added stitching, it can be hand stitching or machine. I am so looking forward to seeing your lovely stitched creations.

As this collection is about celebration and parties I wanted to create a fun, bright explosion of colour on my layout, my photo was taken at my daughters Birthday party, she was having so much fun, she didn’t see us snapping away, I love her expression!!!!
The coordinating stamp set is just so much fun, I’m not sure what you call them, but stamped and fussy cut the little flower type stamp on some of the Kaiser card, they made great centres to the Doily Die cut outs and I also added some around my layout to give little pops/explosions of colour.
You can download the instructions for my layout here

Hi Everyone, Chrissy here with another Technique Tuesday. Today I will be sharing with you the art of “Fussy Cutting” – also what fussy cutting means, what you can fussy cut and my preferred tools to use to fussy cut with.
When I first started Scrapbooking I hadn’t even heard of the term “fussy cutting” however I soon discovered I loved the idea of cutting out beautiful flowers and images from the gorgeous papers and it was a friend who then said to me – “you love your fussy cutting don’t you” and that is how I found out what it meant and my projects over the years have featured more & more fussy cutting. So Fussy Cutting is: Cutting out specific images from your paper.
Here are a few images cut from the gorgeous Uncharted Waters papers.
I think the term “Fussy Cutting” originated from cutting material, this is what I found on Google: “A fussy cut is a piece of fabric that’s been cut to target a specific area of a print, rather than cutting the yardage into random pieces”.
I am really drawn to beautiful floral papers, I love fussy cutting all the flowers then arranging them into clusters on my layouts – however, you don’t need pretty floral papers to be able to fussy cut, even with this beautiful “Uncharted Waters” collection there are many, many things to fussy cut. The shells and other sea themed images.
………even the ropes, (which then look 3D) anchors and shells from the “Sea Shore” paper. The corner netting image from the Hook paper which I have cut out twice, the second one slightly smaller and then layered it up on top of the first one to give some height and dimension (see image below)
….and for some extreme fussy cutting, how about this netting (below) from the “Streak” paper which I have then added to the bottom of my layout.
so yes, you can fussy cut anything!!! why not give it a go!!
There is not a set tool or scissors that you Should use to fussy cut, you can use what ever you feel comfortable using, I found very early on into my fussy cutting that I loved using one specific pair of small curved nail scissors which I still use today. (the ones on the right in below image) I do have about three other slightly different pairs of small scissors but these are just in case I loose my favourite pair as they have now been discontinued
Once all the fussy cutting has been done you can put your layout together. Another reason I love fussy cutting is that I find it very relaxing – and gives your projects that little extra lovely touch.
……..and you can use foam pads to give some height and dimension to your fussy cut elements
