Lilac Mist 10 minute cards

Hi everyone, welcome to today’s blog post where I am sharing 2 quick cards. For me card making has to be quick. And although I appreciate those gorgeous fancy cards I ice when I think they will just be trashed one day – so for me personally quick and easy does the trick.

Kaisercraft: Lilac Mist Collection : PP1093 Paper Pad | CT994 Collectables
Other: Ink | Pearls- Snow | Card Pack – White |
For my first card I used 3 patterned papers from my 6×6 paper pad. I always like cutting these smaller papers to make multiple cards – it works so well.
Then added some die-cut elements from my Collectibles packet. I used the thin foam tape to raise some of the elements tucking things underneath the large square element. By simply adding foam tape to the center of the element I can easily tuck things under it.
My second card uses the remainder of the patterned paper pieces that I cut. It is really easy creating colour blocked cards using limited supplies – so there is really never an excuse for not being able to be creative.
Here I grouped my die-cut elements towards the bottom of the card where the larger pieces of patterned papers are split by the thin lilac strip. I finished off my cards using some pearls in various sizes and some ink splats.

Si in ten minutes or less I created these gorgeous cards using this amazing new range. And what better way to spoil someone with a handmade card, even if it may find its way to the landfill one day – for today it brings me joy creating a beautiful card and going through the creative process. Until next time – happy creating Jowilna xx

Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone! It’s been a very long while but I am very happy to be able to share a birthday card with you today. It’s using paper from Kaisercraft’s new release Lilac Mist.

Kaisercraft Products: Lilac Mist Collection: PP1093 Paper Pad | Kaisercard : CD343 Blueberry, CD301 Snow, CD114 Forest | Decorative Dies: DD547 Circle Vines, DD3335 Birthday Wishes, DD815 Sketched Circles | DIY Flora Dies DD493 Flora Leaves, DD494 Flora Branches | F643 Amethyst Paper Blooms | F659 Misty Mini Paper Blooms

Other: Hemp | Cherry Blossoms

To create my card, I wanted to showcase lots of the papers as I had a difficult time deciding which ones I wanted to use as I liked them all. To help me in my design decision, I pulled out of the paper pad some papers that were my first choice – which were four! Next I went to Pinterest and had a look at the card sketches. I often do this to kick start my ideas and then I found a sketch that appealed to me. This sketch would enable me to showcase the papers I selected plus provide me with some options in my composition.

My take on the sketch………

To get the dimensions of the smaller squares, I just cut out scrap paper and played around with them until I was happy with everything.

Once my papers were positioned, I embellished with flowers and dies from previous releases.

Pretty Floral Slimline Cards

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing two slimline cards using papers and products from the gorgeous Flower Shoppe Collection. Slimline cards are very on trend at the moment and I wanted to have a try at creating this type of card.

Kaisercraft Products: Flowers Shoppe Collection: P2939 Sunroom | P2940 Conservatory | CT983 Collectables | DD55 Round Fancy Frame Decorative Die | Paper Blooms: F630 Iceberg | F627 Coconut | F647 Iceberg Mini Paper Blooms | F672 White Handmade Flowers

Other: Hemp| Stamens|Banner Die

In this card, I wanted to use lots of flowers and the butterflies. I stacked the flowers over some die cut cuts, plus some collectable pieces. I also used some fish tails, to take advantage of the length of this card design.

To create the base of my cards, I used a strong A4 cardstock. I trimmed it down to 8″ x 9″. On a scoreboard, with the 8″ side facing the top, I scored it down the centre at 4″, creating a 4″ x 9″ card.

Kaisercraft Products: Flowers Shoppe Collection: P2943 Full Bloom | P2938 Afternoon | CT983 Collectables | DD369 Oval Vintage Frame Decorative Die | DD755 Lace Borders Decorative Die | CT989 Flower Shoppe Sentiment | CD301 Snow Cardstock

For my second card, I created the same cardbase as above and utilised the pretty collectables to decorate my card. To create a shabby chic look, I used some decorative dies as accents.

Native Noel Card Set

Kaisercraft Collection: Native Noel | Natives | Green Polka | Gingham | Sticker Sheet | Collectables | Kaiser Mist Gold | Foam Tape | Rhinestones
Other: Sewing machine | ribbon
Welcome to today’s blo0g post using another fabulous Christmas range. With its gorgeous shades of reds and greens and a hint of kraft this range is going to be a firm favorite for me. I made 3 cards using my patterned papers as the background trimmed to fit onto my card base.
On top of the patterned paper I added either a tag or a cut out card from the Green Polka sheet {reverse}. Some machine sewing details around the edges gives a nice contrast and texture.
From my collectibles packet I added a circle element and finished it off with some Gold Kaiser Mist splats and rhinestones.
This must be one of my favorite cards – simply because it has this gorgeous Protea on it. I added some cut out leaves and the cut out Protea from the Natives patterned paper.
For my third card I used another cut out panel and added a circle from the sticker sheet and some cut out leaves and berries as a finishing touch.
Notice how the gold Kaiser Mist splats just pull everything together and adds some shimmer without being overwhleming.
And don’t forgot those little details in the form of rhinestones or other embellishments. I hope you are inspired by these card to start making your Festive Season cards for this year. I can’t wait to make some more cards using the other amazing elements in this kit – be sure to check out yours from your local store and get it in time for some Christmas Crafting. Until next time Jowilna xxx

Fallen Leaves – Cards

Hi there Kaisercraft fans! It’s Jo here on the blog today to share with you some cards I created using the new Fallen Leaves collection.

Kaisercraft Products: FALLEN LEAVES Collection: P2924 Winding Roads | P2923 Warm Breeze | P2920 Crisp Air | CT981 Collectables | PP1087 Paper Pad | FL668 Flourishes

I started by adding some patterned paper to the base of some DL size cards.

I then clustered up embellishments from the collectables pack using a mix of double sided tape along with some foam tape, to make little focal points for my cards.

I also tucked in some of the wooden flourises as well for extra interest.

To finish them, I splattered some white gesso over the top.

Here is a closer look at each card indivually.

Thank you for dropping by and I hope you liked my cards

Little Treasures – Cards

Hello Kaisercraft fans and welcome back to the blog! I hope this post finds you well in these crazy times we now find ourselves in.

Little Treasures Collection: PP1088 Paper Pad | CT982 | Collectables | Collectables Sentiments |

How sweet is this new collection – Little Treasures! I love the sweet little images and those beautiful flowers in the collectables pack. As my “babies” are now big people and they have friends who are now having babies I made a couple of cards in preparation.

These cards were super easy to create.

I covered my card base with some pretty papers from the paper pad. Then I made a couple of embellishment clusters from the collectables pack to sit at the top of my card.

Here is a look at each individual card
