I fell in love with the gorgeous colours of this collection and the books, oh the books on the Roamer paper were screaming to be piled up 🙂
But first some mixed media on my base paper.

I have then used fussy cut lanterns, and books to pile up on my base page.

I have adhered different levels of book using cardboard for dimension.
Add in some collectables and a Decorative Border die-cut.

Another layer of books and some more collectables and stickers from the Sticker Book.

Tech Tuesday – Creating backgrounds using Clear Stamps – Morning Dew

Hello Kaisercraft Fans!
It’s Lisa here today to share a technique, and some cards with you.
I have created two mixed media cards,
by creating my own backgrounds using the Clear Stamps.
I have also made some traditional cards for those who don’t like getting messy 🙂

I have used the gorgeous Morning Dew collection to create these cards.

PAPERS: MORNING DEW Collection: PP1069 Paper Pad
KC PRODUCTS:  CS354 Clear Stamp Set, CT963 Collectables, SK809 Sticker Book, CD501 Square Card Base, CD601 White Card Stock, Kaiser Mist Turquoise KM127, Ink Pads – IP745 Sea Breeze, IP755 Silver   
OTHER:Clear Gesso, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun

For my first card, I have used the Clear Stamps,
and a watermark stamp pad to stamp images onto my card.
I have then used Clear embossing powder to make the images resist the Kaiser Mist I have used.

I have then used the same stamp, and multiple ink pads,
to stamp out and fussy cut the floral images out.
I have then layered these into the centre of my card.

I have then added some of the Collectables, Die-cut pieces and stickers to finish.
Very simple and yet very effective.

You can find the full instructions for this card HERE.

For my next mixed media card,
I have used the same Kaiser Mist in Turquoise,
mixed with some water to flow over my card base.

PAPERS: MORNING DEW Collection: PP1069 Paper Pad
KC PRODUCTS: CS354 Clear Stamp Set, CT963 Collectables, SK809 Sticker Book, CD501 Square Card Base, Kaiser Mist KM127 Turquoise, Ink Pads – IP757 Black, IP745 Sea Breeze, SB700 Silver Rhinestones, CD601 White Cardstock, Heat Gun.

I have then used the butterfly stamps from the Clear Stamp set,
and black ink, to stamp randomly over my card.

I have then used elements from the Collectables,
layered with some of the papers from the Paper Pad.

I have also stamped out some more butterflies, with Sea Breeze Ink,
to use on the centre of my card.
You can find the full instructions for this card HERE.

My next cards are free of mess and a bit more traditional.

PAPERS: MORNING DEW Collection: PP1069 Paper Pad
KC PRODUCTS:  CT963 Collectables, SK809 Sticker Book, CD501 Square Card Base

For this card, I have started by layering some of the gorgeous papers from the Paper Pad.
Oh those pebbles!

I have then used some floral stickers from the Sticker Book,
to add some pretty to my card.

I could not resist adding that gorgeous bird to the top corner.

You can find the full instructions for this card HERE.

For my last card,
I have started with some of the pretty papers from the Paper Pad.

PAPERS: MORNING DEW Collection: PP1069 Paper Pad.
KC PRODUCTS:  CT963 Collectables, SK809 Sticker Book, CD501 Square Card Base,

I have then layered some of the bracket die-cuts from the Paper Pad.

Some more layers of the papers,
and then I am ready to add some of the Collectables,
Stickers & a Paper Bloom

I hope that you like the mix of messy and traditional cards that I have created.
I really enjoyed working with this collection.

‘Peaceful’ by Lisa Amiet

It’s Lisa here today to share a layout with you. I have used the glorious Morning Dew collection released this month. I was inspired but the florals and the gorgeous greens.

PAPERS: WITH LOVE Collection: P2757 Serene, P2758 Breathe, P2760 Calming, P2762 Tranquil, P2763 Inhale, P2764 Exhale, P2765 Refresh

I have used Calming (reverse) as my base page. I have used the Clear Stamp Set and the Tiny Dot Texture stamp and Spearmint & Smoke Ink pads to stamp on my page. I then used my Lime & Turquoise Kaiser Mists to splatter my page.

I have fussy cut the florals from the patterned papers.

I have arranged the flowers around two opposite corners to frame my page.

I have then started to arrange my layers travelling diagonally down my page.

I have layered some of the collectables, more fussy cut elements,
and some stickers from the Sticker Book.

I have then layered up some more florals and sentiment stickers, with some added bling 😉

This collection works perfectly with the photo of the cute little church.

I hope you like what I have created. You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.

Fussy Cutting for Dimension

Hello Kaisercraft fans,
it’s Lisa here today to share some inspiration with you using the oh so fabulous
Antiquities Collection.



PAPERS: ANTIQUITIES Collection: P2741 Limited Edition, P2742 Heirloom, P2743 Antique, P2747 Beloved. 
KC PRODUCTS: CT960 Collectables, SK807 Sticker Book, CS352 Clear Stamps, CS359 Grunged Paint Texture Stamp, IP747 Denim, IP744 Blue Haze, KM122 Yellow, KM129 Navy

The first thing that jumped out to me when I received this collection was the gorgeous print of the HEIRLOOM (reverse) paper. It was screaming to be fussy cut out.

But first I needed to get a little messy 🙂
I have used the Grunged Paint Texture Stamp and the number stamp from the Clear Stamps,
and Denim & Blue Haze inks, to stamp an X pattern on my base page.

I have then used my Yellow & Navy Kaiser Mists to splatter in the same pattern.
I have then fussy cut the HEIRLOOM (reverse) paper, into individual diamonds.
I have scored and folded up the edges of each one.
I have then arranged them in a diamond pattern that is split across my page.

I have then started to build up my layout, using collectables, stamped images and stickers.

I have then added my photo base to the right side of the page.

I have then added some elements to the left side to balance it out.

I have then added my photo and a couple of sentiments, and voila, done!

I love the dimension that was added by folding up the edges.

I am really happy with how this layout turned out and LOVED working with the
Antiquities Collection.
You can find the full instructions for this layout
HERE.

Until next time!

Technique Tuesday – Adding Dimension with Paisley Days

Hello all! It’s Lisa here today to share a technique with you.
I love to use patterns in the papers to create depth and dimension to a layout.
I have created this layout using the technique.

PAPERS: PAISLEY DAYS  Collection: P2732 Smiles, P2734 Soul, P2736 Groovy
KC PRODUCTS: CT959 Collectables, SK806 Sticker Book, DD636 Posy Circle Decorative Die, DD3331 Flower Cluster Decorative Die, IP755 Ink Pad Licorice.
OTHER:Cardboard

This is quite a simple way of using the repeated pattern in a paper to create some dimension.
The gorgeous parquetry wood pattern of the Smiles paper from this month’s new Paisley Days collection is perfect for this technique.

I started by fussy cutting a diagonal shape from the wood paper to adhere to my base page. I have then fussy cut additional pieces from the wood pattern to use to add dimension.

I have inked the edges of my pieces to add even more depth to them. I have then matched up the pattern and used foam tape to raise them.

They also help to add a raised base for where my photo will sit. I am also able to use it to tuck in floral pieces to add to my layers.

Raising my photo base and pieces of wood pattern not only adds dimension but it gives you space to be able to add more layers with your embellishments.

I have used the Posy Circle & Floral Cluster Decorative Dies to cut die cuts from the patterned papers. I have added these, along with some fussy cut floral clusters raised with foam tape following the diagonal flow of my layout.

As you can see it works quite well. I am really happy with how it turned out.
You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.

Kaisercraft.

Until next time!
