It’s your birthday! O’Happy Day

Hello! It’s Lisa here today to share some card inspiration with you.
I have been playing with the O’Happy Day collection for some bright and colourful birthday cards.

PRODUCTS USED: 
PAPERS: O HAPPY DAY Collection: P1082 Paper Pad
KC PRODUCTS: CT976 Collectables, FL663 Flourish Pack, CD501 Square Card Bases, IP757 Black Ink 

I have created two cards using the fun elements in the O’Happy Day Collection.
I have kept them quite simple.

For the first card I have used papers from the Paper Pad, to layer, as my base.

I have fussy cut the flag, party hat and candles from the papers,
and layered them with a die-cut sentiment and wood flourish.

You can find the full instructions for this card HERE.

For my second card

I have started with the blue star paper. I have simply added some collectables elements, layered over my card. Some with foam tape for dimension.

You can find the full instructions for this card HERE.

I hope that you like what I have created, sometimes keeping it simple is best with such bright and bold patterns and colours.

Oh Happy Day Birthday Cards

Hello, Kaisercraft friends. It’s Donna here with a couple of cards using the Oh Happy day collection.

Download the PDF instruction HERE or click the main image above.

PRODUCTS USED: PAPERS: OH HAPPY DAY Collection: PP1082 Paper Pad
KAISERCRAFT PRODUCTS: SK822 Sticker book, CT976 Collectables, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue, CD501 Card Pack Square White
Other: Black and white paper twine

I created something really simple using the paper pad and sticker book only. This colorful and playful collection is perfect not just for birthdays but for any other occasion like graduation or promotion etc.

Believe it or not, I only used the 6″ x 6.5″ paper pad and sticker book in creating these cards. What I love about the paper pads and sticker books is the variety of word arts you can use for birthdays or other greetings for any occasion.

I uploaded a PDF instruction you can download and it’s pretty simple you can do it yourself using the same collection or any of your choice. I made a second card using the same design principle but using different papers and embellishments/elements.

I hope these cards inspired you to create something today! Thanks for dropping by and have a crafty day!

I had so much fun creating this pop-up celebration/party card, I added a photo of my daughter to it – you can add dates and details of a party or add a photo of the person you are sending it to. The Collectables pack was perfect for adding all those pop-up bits & pieces, you can really go to town on it.

Here is a close-up

Thank you, I look forward to seeing your creations using this fun collection.

Lady Like themed cards

Welcome to today’s blog post. I am sharing some cards using the gorgeous Lady Like range.

Products used: Lady Like Collection PP1080 Paper Pad |SK820 Sticker Book | CT974 Collectables | Other: SB786 | Rose Pearls

For my cards I used the Paper Pad and Collectibles – for quick and easy cards the paper pads are amazing. Plus what I love is that I am not cutting into the large sheets and wasting paper.
I used the circle elements from the sticker book and raised them to add some dimension and interest.
A quick scalloped edge punch adds interest to this card.
Clusters elements together for interest like the sticker circles and pearls. Some roses peaking out from under the circle adds more interest.

Until next time – I hope you are inspired to use those paper pads combined with all the other amazing products to create some quick cards.

Let it snow Card set

It’s so hard each year to choose your favorite Christmas Paper range and colour scheme. But this range I think may be one of my favorites. With its soft palette and silver foiled accents it makes for the most amazing projects. I chose to make some quick and easy cards using the gorgeous elements teamed with some neutral elements – making these cards suitable for anyone.

Kaisercraft Products used: Let it Snow Collection PP1074 Paper Pad, FL655 Flourish Pack, CT968 Collectables, SB700 Silver Rhinestones, Cream Pearls, Foam Tape.

I used my flourishes and inked them using some my metallic silver ink pad, and then added a layer of dimensional glaze.
Some kraft snowflakes work so well alongside the flourishes – picking up on the wood still peeking out from the sides, while the inked silver surface ties beautifully in with the paper and silver foiling.
Minimalist embellishments in the form of a few pearls and diamonds finished off my cards.
I love how easy it is to make cards using the paper pad, collectibles and flourishes. Until next time – we can’t wait to see what you create with this range of products! Jowilna

‘Tis the Season to Sparkle & Shine!

Let is Snow features the most beautiful shades of teals with a hint of silver

Happy day everyone!! It’s Deanna joining you today with two fabulous cards and I couldn’t be MORE EXCITED!! I am absolutely thrilled with this new collection from Kaisercraft–and it is dear to my heart!! I had the pleasure of working with Kaisercraft on this collaboration and it is so exciting to see it become real! Three years in the making (and begging!) and they made it look even better than it was in my dreams! I just can’t get enough of this timeless collection and know I’ll be stockpiling it for many future projects–it’s too pretty to cut!

Kaisercraft Products: PP1074 Paper Pad| CT968 Collectibles| P2805 All is Calm| GC103 Platinum Glitter| FC220 Gold & Silver foil pad| DD3343 Snowflakes Die
Other: Silver Dots|Large rhinestone

Teal is my favourite colour and I love all the different shades that are included in this line–they help to give added dimension to the papers. And of course they match perfect with all things silver–foil and glitter papers look great with these!

Layered snowflakes using the New Snowflakes die

I was super excited to see a brand NEW Snowflake die–a girl can never have too many of those in her stash! What I loved about this one is that you get TWO dies and they are the absolute perfect size for cardmaking. Plus they were designed to layer which is right up my alley–a pop dot in between makes the layers really stand out. I used the Platinum Glitter cardstock for my card mats but I did cut the snowflakes out of the new foil papers, which are a thinner weight and perfect for those intricate dies.

Here I used another snowflake from the new die set but this time I layered it with one of the elements from the Collectibles pack! There are so many fantastic pieces in there and these really dress up a snowflake.

Words are from the large 12×12 cutapart sheet–P2808 All is Calm

I used the 6.5″ Paper pad for all the patterns on my cards. The designs are a little smaller and work perfect for cardmakers. But I could not resist using the 12×12 cut apart–this is a carmakers dream!! I was in heaven with the huge assortment of festive words and quotes and the best part was the silver accents–they make everything sparkle!

Every 6.5″ paper pad features a huge array of diecuts and images in the back–ready to push out and use!

I always love little elements that add layers without bulk–these little tabs in the back of the paper pads are great for doing just that.

Kaisercraft Products: PP1074 Paper pad|CT968 Collectibles| P2805 All is Calm| RS402 Island Lagoon | FC220 Silver & Gold foil pad
Other: Stitched Rectangle die

I just can’t get enough of all the fabulous patterns that are in this line–snowflakes, diagonals and the always popular woodgrains. I used several of the collectibles on this card as accent pieces to frame my greeting in the center.

I like to use foam tape between my layers to create shadowing and depth–the same goes for adding the collectibles. These are usually cards that I hand delivery for those special people, but if I need to mail them, then I will (reluctantly) remove some of the foam tape.

I loved the Island Lagoon rhinestones–they were the perfect match of teal and really added a beautiful touch–doesn’t every card deserve some bling??

Once again I turned to the 12×12 cutapart for my greeting. This one I really trimmed down to make it fit my card. Each layer is matted with silver foil really accentuating the different patterns and colour hues. I also added a perforated greeting to the top of the card–these are in the back of your paper pad and are a great size for card greetings.

I sure hope you love Let it Snow as much as I do!! I’m so VERY grateful for all the hard work they put into this collection to bring my vision to life and I can’t wait to play and create even more over the next few weeks! It truly IS the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!
