One of the things that I am loving at the moment is getting back in touch with my stencils and playing with some ink….. it has been awhile.

Use some blender brushes through the stencil and keep building up the colours ….. dont like what you did? Dilute with water and add some more when its dry….. this will give some depth to the layout and background.

Add foam tape to different elements throughout the layout, this will add interest and also allow you to add more leaves and see glimpses of your mixed media work.

So I am off to catch some some sunshine…… till next time have a creative day.

‘Sunshine’ with Lisa Amiet

Hello Kaisercraft fans! It’s Lisa here today to share some inspiration with you all.
I have been playing with the ‘Sunkissed’ collection,
with all it’s glorious colours and a tropical feel

This is what I have come up with.

I have used the ‘Coconut’ paper as my base,
I loved the shade of pink and it’s grungy feel.
I have then fussy cut the floral and foliage frame from the ‘Martini’ paper,
and adhered it to my base page.

I have then used some of the Collectable and fussy cut foliage,
to build up more layers to the frame.

I have then added my photo and more layers of fussy cut elements.

I have curled some of the leaves and flowers, for more dimension to my page.

I have then added in some collectable butterflies,
and a title to my layers of foliage.

I have folded the wings of the butterflies up,
for a more realistic look.

Perfect for a photo of myself in Hawaii.
I love the tropical feel to this collection,
ideal for holiday photos.

I hope that you like what I have created with this collection,
and that it inspires you to create something today.

You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.

Until next time!
Lisa

Favourite Day

Good morning how are you? Well I always joke about needing more time….. we are lucky as its a leap year and we have another 24 hrs…..what are you planning to do with your extra time? Myself I am here to finish off the month with a layout using the amazing Native Breeze.

You can download a PDF file HERE and if you want to follow along you can do so with a Process Video HERE

PRODUCTS USED:
 
PAPERS: NATIVE BREEZE Collection: P2856 Banksia Bouquet, P2858 Gum Leaves, P2860 Eucalyptus, P2861 Native Flock, P2862 Sundown, SK824 Sticker Sheet,

To start this layout I knew that I wanted the eucalyptus pattern to be further down the page to to move it I chopped off the bottom 3rd and then uses some of that to rip layers to add to the top…..

When sticking the strips down dont go to nuts with the tape because you want to add all the native flowers and fussy cutting in between those layers.

So have fun with your extra 24 hours and till next time have a creative day xxxxx

Lily & Moss Tiles – Group Post

Hello – this group post is all about “Tiles” so today the Design Team will show you a few ways to use the P2883 Pink Plaster paper & P2884 Tiles paper in their projects.

Kaisercraft Products: SK823 Sticker Book|CT977 Collectables|SB701 Soft Pink Rhinestones|DD3352 Lily Decorative Die

The Pink Plaster paper with all those pretty tiles on it is so versatile, I decided to use it as my background and cut out the ones I wanted to use. I have also stitched in between the tiles and have added some bling to them – You can cut out specific tiles to suit your project, they would also look great as a centre section on a card.

I had lots of fun playing with the tiles in this collection. I have made a frame with the mosaic tiles from TILES, and with the decorative tiles from PINK PLASTER, that I have arranged in a grid.

Papers: Lily & Moss Collection: P2883 Pink Plaster|P2884 Tiles|
Kaisercraft Products: CT977 Collectables | white Cardstock

I decided to use Tiles as my background paper and cut up Pink Plaster and used specific tiles to layer behind my photo. The heart shape was hand drawn on some white card stock as I just wanted some plain white highlight to soften the ‘busy’ background paper. I then layered several Collectables die cuts and arranged them around my photo using foam dots for dimension.

I hope we have inspired you to use these beautiful papers from the Lily and Moss collection, which you can find on the Kaisercraft website here

…….and we look forward to seeing your creations over on the Kaisercraft Corner facebook page

I Love this exotic collection the colours are absolutely gorgeous, I particularly love the combination of the mustard and green colours against the woodgrain paper – so picked out the colour coordinating doors from the Doorway paper to create my layout. I layered the doors either side of my photo going diagonally across my layout.

Happy crafting – Chrissy Tingey xXx

I used the Doors page to create some quick cards. Combined with my Collectibles pack and some stickers these cards turned out even better than what I imagined.
I simply added some quick elements to decorate the doors after adhering them to the center of my cards.
Foam tape for raising elements adds interest with its dimension, some Gold Kaiser mist splats and diamante adds to the rich feel of the papers and elements.

Something for the Boys!

Hello all! It’s Lisa here today to share my latest creation with you.
This month we have some gorgeous collections for you,
including the Workshop collection, perfect for the boys in your life.

PAPERS: WORKSHOP Collection: P2793 Tough, P2794 Dashing, P2798 Courageous
KC PRODUCTS: CT967 Collectables, SK813 Sticker Book, CR213 Curios, IT494 Linear Lines Template, CS364 Clear Stamp Set, DD3316 Texture Subway Decorative Die, CD606 Navy Cardstock, Ink Pads IP747 Denim, IP757 Black, IP744 Blue Haze 
OTHER: Cardboard, Modelling Paste. 

I have fallen in love!
With the Template, the Clear Stamps, the colours and elements,
well just all of it!

I do love a bit of grunge!!
This collection has it all. I have started with Dashing (reverse) as my base page.
I have then used the Linear Lines Template and modelling paste,
to make this background my own.

I have then started stamping with a few different inks,
and then I started to build up my page, using rulers and cogs.

I have also used the Subway Texture Decorative Die. I have die-cut these from both navy and white card stock. I have added these into my layers as I build them up.

As I am building I adhere more of the rulers,
more of the subway die-cuts and cogs.

I have used both foam tape and cardboard to add dimension to my layout.

I have then added some of the word stickers from the Sticker Book, sentiment tag from the Collectables and a Curio to finish.

I quite like how this one turned out. Perfect for my boys and their shenanigans 🙂
You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.

Until next time!
