‘Remember’ by Sonia Thomason

To create my background, I took the gorgeous Gold Foil Fan paper and sprayed with Kaiser Mist in Charcoal. I then wiped the paper with a baby wipe and the foil acts as a resist to the Mist to create this beautiful rich background that makes the Parasol Paper pop!

Other: Gold Embossing Powder

I stamped part of the Parasol Die Cut Paper with embossing ink using the gorgeous Oriental Calligraphy Texture Stamp and then heat embossed using gold embossing powder. It gives an amazing textural finish that works beautifully with the Gold Foil Paper:

Alicia McNamara Card Making Colouring Gel Pens KaiserColour Product Highlight Tuesday Tutorials Videos

Coloured Valentine’s Day Cards ~ Tuesday Tutorial and Video

February 14, 2017

Happy Valentine’s Day Kaisercrafters! I’m sending lots of love out to you today : ) and I’m also sharing a Video Tutorial on how to make an easy Valentine’s Day card using Gel Pens and a Kaisercraft Post Card Book! So if you need a Valentines Card or an “anything card”, and you love to colour, this post is especially for you xx

Kaisercraft Gel Pens

Have you seen the gorgeous Kaisercraft Gel Pens? These pens can be purchased in the complete set of 48 pens and include 12 Glitter Pens, 12 Metallic Pens, 12 Neon Pens and 12 Pastel Pens.  With the Kaisercraft Gel Pens you can really achieve the colours you desire in a card.

Maybe you like lots of bright, neon colours like in this card…

Kaisercraft Indian Summer Card by Alicia McNamara

Or perhaps you prefer more of the pastel hues like in these two cards…

Kaisercraft Valentine Cards by Alicia McNamara

To make these three cards I used pages from three of the Kaiser Colour Post Card Books.

Kaisercraft Post Card Colouring Book

Kaisercraft Post Card Colouring Book

These books measure approximately 4 x 6 inches and the pages easily tear out of the book so they are perfect for the front cover of a card.

Watch my Video Tutorial below to see exactly how I make my card : )

You can see my first Colouring Video and all my other Kaisercraft Videos here.

 

Kaisercraft Valentine Cards by Alicia McNamara

How to Make the Cards

Step One: Colour your chosen image.

Step Two: Adhere your image to a base card.

Step Three: Add a ribbon or some Rhinestones if desired

Kaisercraft Valentine Cards by Alicia McNamara

There is no hard thinking required to make these cards.  No fussing over elements, sketches or anything that requires strenuous creativity!  Its a very simple process that consists of some relaxed colouring time and then a little bit of card stock and double-sided tape or glue to put your card together.

Kaisercraft Valentine Cards by Alicia McNamara

Why not spread the love this Valentine’s Day with a beautifully coloured card.  Or get the kids onto it, they will be entertained for a couple of hours!

Kaisercraft Valentine Cards by Alicia McNamara

Be sure to let me know here if you make a card like this, or just complete some colouring.  I would love to see your work.

Happy Valentine’s Day,

Alicia : )
