April 20, 2017

 Do you like to add a bit of textured stamping to your crafty projects?  Kaisercraft has just released some lovely new “Textured Stamps” that go perfectly with our two new collections this month, Indigo Skies and High Tea.

Look at all that gorgeous texture!! The new Textured Stamps are called Floral Wallpaper, Paint Strokes, Doily, Brick Wall and Marble.  You can see all these Textured Stamps and the whole range on the Kaisercraft Web Page here.

The Design Team were asked to create a project featuring one of these Textured Stamps.  See if you can spot which stamp they used….

‘Lets Celebrate’ by Collette Mitrega

I chose to use the new ‘Marble’ (CS293) textured stamp. I selected papers from the Indigo Skies 6 1/2″ paper pad and randomly stamped onto the light grey paper with a Versamark ink pad. I then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I did plan to ink the page with ‘Island’ ink pad ( IP726) which would really accentuate the stamp creating a resist effect. But, I really liked how it looked –  not inked ….. so I went with this!

I used the beautiful new ‘Classic Butterfly’ die (DD170),  added some cheesecloth, a cluster of Kaiser Blooms and some splats of white Kaisermist to create a soft wispy card.

I do hope you like it, I do :)

Other: Silver Crackle Texture Paste, Silver Embossing Powder and acetate

The Doily Texture Stamp was stamped onto acetate and then trimmed around the edges. The Doily images were then adhered to the page using Glossy Accents. Stamping onto acetate is a great way to use stamped images on your page if you are not sure where you would like to put them. You can slide the acetate into different positions until you are happy with the look and then stick the image down

Baby Girl Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

Kaisercraft High Tea Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

I made this Album for a friend.  The little girl in the photos is only three months old so there are only photos for the first three months.  The album is designed to hold a photo for every month for the first 12 months.

I stamped CS296 Floral Wallpaper Texture Stamp on the front and back cover of the album.

Kaisercraft High Tea Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

The mother of the baby is taking the monthly photos with the little monthly cards so I didn’t worry about putting a number on the pages as there will be the monthly number in each of the photographs.

For the pages without a photo I just used a blank square cut from PS485 Floral Wallpaper Embossed.

Using a combination of the Paper Pad, Collectables and Sticker Sheet you can make an endless variety of Pocket Pages that co-ordinate easily and beautifully with each other. Both the Sticker Sheet and Collectables have a number of different quotes and words that add a wonderful element to your pocket pages

The Flourish Packs are a wonderful way to add dimension that does not have too much thickness or weight to the pieces. If the embellishments are too heavy or thick you could damage your plastic sleeves over time

Beautiful memories Layout and process video with Anita Bownds

April 3, 2017
Hi there,
Anita here sharing with you today a layout and process video
With this layout I was inspired by a Alice in wonderland quote I found on Pinterest
I wanted to include the quote on my page but I didn’t want it to be the focal point

Just faint in the background of the layout to add texture

I started by choosing 2 patterned papers from the collection that would would help my

Quote I chose blend in my background of my layout.

I thought the wood grain P2278 Biscuit with the grey and white polka dot P2281 Afternoon Tea would go perfectly together

If you would like to try this idea I’ve included the cut file png that I made to use on my page

Here is my process video I hope you enjoy it ..

After adhering the 2 bits of 12×12 patterned papers together
I wanted to add colour to the top and bottom to have that even colour throughout the layout so I added to stripes of p2279 tea leaves at the top and bottom
I also wanted to cluster the die cut embellishments beside the photo
I also added a few die cuts and sticker to the top to add extra dimension
And to give the silhouette cut Quote a little extra pop I used a lead pencil and just traced around the words

And I couldn’t go past adding some fussy cut flowers around my photo

And I done the same at the bottom with a added extra wood bit from the tea party flourish pack

 

And to finish it off I added a few flicks of black mist

Alicia McNamara Card Making Kaiser Mists Layouts Specialty Gloss Papers Videos

Group Post Featuring Floral Gloss Specialty Paper

March 29, 2017

Today the Design Team are showcasing a beautiful Specialty Paper from the gorgeous Wild flower Collection called Floral Gloss.

This Specialty Paper looks amazing when sprayed with Kaiser Mists.  Each Design Team Member has created a beautiful project featuring Floral Gloss, and included at the bottom of this post there is a video tutorial for you to watch so you can see exactly how to do it yourself!

I sprayed pink and yellow Kaiser Mists randomly (and lightly) on the page and then gently wiped the surface with a baby wipe. The gloss on the Specialty paper acts as a resist and the Mist wipes right off leaving behind the gorgeous pattern. When choosing your Mists, think about how they combine as there will be areas where the colour overlaps. In my case it created a soft orange which co-ordinates beautifully with the layout.
