Hi there everyone, Kaisercraft produce some fabulous textured stamps that can be used on any type of project. They also release a clear stamp set with every paper collection released each month. Using a stamp set you can create and enhance your projects, adding a special and different interest to them. Today, some of the Design Team members are show casing cards using the BOTANICA Paper Pad PP973 with the Paper Collection “Botanica” CS223 Acrylic 160 x 100mm Clear Stamp.
First we have Adriana’s card with a step by step on how to create this card
“Friendship” Card by Adriana Bolzon
Hi everyone it’s Adriana Bolzon here, showing you a Step by Step on this card I created. To create those lovely clusters of flowers and leaves. Stamp some leaves and flowers on some card stock. I am using water colour pencils to colour my stamped images. (Please note: it is most important to use a fade resistant waterproof Dye ink pad.)
For my card base I used Leaf paper from the Botanica paper pad
Distressing the edges a little, adding the wooden panel Botanica Paper pad paper. Stamp randomly some leaves from the stamp set with brown ink pad.
Arranged and adhere the colours leaves and using foam tape add the stamped and coloured flowers, layering them on top of each other.

I used the same technique to create my flowers clusters for the cover of my mini affirmation book. More details on how to make this Mini Book are on my Blog.

Hi paper crafters, Collette Mitrega here and I have created a simple and a more complex card for you today. I love to use the paper pads for my cards. I know that all the papers from the same pad will work together and I love the fact that the designs are the same as the Kaisercraft papers…..just so much smaller, the perfect size for the cardmaker.
‘Botanica’ Card by Collette
One of the things I love to do with stamps is to create a water mark on the background cardstock. To do this simply stamp with a watermark stamp pad, the stamped image will always be a few shades darker. I then like to use my coloured Kaisercraft ink pads to stamp up and mat generously. A bow and a bit of sparkle finish this simple card.

‘Special Treasures’ Card by Collette
I have chosen a lovely card fold for my next card, let me know if you would me to do a video for you. First I stamped with my ink pad, fussy cut my leaves and 3D them on the front. I used the same stamp to lightly stamp my message label inside the card. I then stamped the lovely saying, ‘flagged’ the end and 3D that as well!

Hi everyone Belinda Spencer here!!
One of my favourite scrappy things to do is fussy cutting. The clear stamp images and patterned papers in the Botanica collection are absolutely perfect for this. I have created a layered look for my card using this very technique.
Take a look…

Hi Kaisercrafters Amanda Baldwin here !
Hope you’re all enjoying this amazing inspiration from our talented design team! I’ve created a fairly contemporary card to share with you today….

How cute is this card?! Super fun and modern. I’ve used the fabulous Botanica Clear Stamp not just for my sentiment, but also to decorate my doily with. I love the interest that this stamping creates – it really draws you in! A really simple idea that looks so sweet!

“Friends” card by Alicia McNamara
Hello, Alicia here. Today I’m sharing a card I made using only the Botanica Paper Pad, the matching Botanica Clear Stamp and some Black Ink. I really love this collection of papers, the colours are so pretty and flowers go with everything right!? I also LOVE the papers with the beachy, weathered floor boards. I would love to have beachy wooden floor boards in my “one day dream home” so whenever I see them in a Kaisercraft collection I get a bit excited and have to use them! I find this paper so versatile. Another one of the papers in the pad is dedicated to these little botanical illustrations. I cut out three little flower pictures and used them as the focal point for my card. I layered different papers from the pad horizontally beneath the three little pictures and stamped the sentiment and a flower in the background. This was a quick and easy card to make and could be repeated many times using only one paper pad (just changing the colours of the background papers) and using the matching stamp. Perfect to make up a bunch of cards for your stash, or just one to send to a special friend : )

Hi everyone, Cathy Cafun here!
I was in heaven when I saw the Botanica Collection!! The papers are perfect if you are into fussy cutting to create elements for your projects. It does take a little extra time and patience, but is well worth the effort. For my card I fussy cut a selection of pretty flowers and leaves from the paper pad and layered them with foam tape around my sentiment which was stamped on one of the diecuts from the paper pad. I also used the fern-type leaf from the stamp set, which I stamped on cream paper from the paper pad using the vine ink pad. I dried it off with a heat gun, so that the ink didn’t smear whilst fussy cutting around the stamped image. The leaves were then added in amongst my floral layers to create a bit more dimension and fullness to my clusters.

Hi everyone, Kirsten Hyde here!
This is my first Design Team creation for Kaisercraft. When I first looked through the Botanica Collection, I thought it was an amazing collection. I have created a card with a pocket, with room for a packet of seeds at the back of the card. I have fussy cutted some of the apple blooms and stems of Botanica Pollen P1874. I stamped the leaves onto the back side of the Pollen paper, and fussy cutted the leaves. The leaves have been folded slightly to create more dimension. The flowers has been stamped onto white card stock with the Berry ink pad IP731. Then I have used the Petal Pink ink pad IP725 to colour the inside of the flowers. The flowers has been fussy cutted and shaped to create the small blooms. The other flowers has been coloured slightly with ink from the ink pads and a paint brush. For effect, I have sewn a few stiches with a sewing machine on the background card Botanica – Plant P1872. I made the seed bag out of Vellum. I stamped onto the Vellum and created a small bag by sewing around to layers. I have used some card on the back of the Seed Bag for support and added a topper.
