Botanical theme altered boxes by Kavitha

June 18, 2018

 

Hello everyone,

Kavitha here today to share my new project using “Anthology ” collection

 

This collection gives such a warm feel with natural color tones and elements that inspired me to make a botanical/nature themed

altered boxes.

 

I mainly used fussy cut elements from the “Ephemera” and “Entomology” papers to create the elements for my boxes.

I have also used some miniature garden theme accessories like bird house,watering can etc.

Few pieces from collectables and Flourishes added the perfect finishing touch to my boxes.

I tried to give a ornate/vintage feel to the boxes using few clay embellishments

I love making miniatures projects,adding tiny details is so much fun (and painful too ;)).Hope

you enjoyed my project,do let me know your views :)

Anthology Card Making Full Bloom Layering

Tips for Layering

June 13, 2018

Layering is an effective and popular way of adding dimension to a project.  Today the Design Team have come up with some Tips for Layering that might be helpful to you when adding layers to your creations.

Summer card by Tatiana Yemelyanenko

For adding volume to my project I used collectables, fussy cut images and stamped embellishments. I also added sisal to make the composition lighter and airy.

“Bloom” Layout by Rikki Graziani

When fussy cutting dont be afraid to layer in shapes, like I have done here in circles with everything coming out from that!!

Love Always Layout by Jowilna Nolte

Layer with a purpose.
For this layout I added layered clusters of flowers just below my photograph to ground the photo.
The layering gives the photo somewhere to sit and also frames the image beautifully.

You can also layer ink colours like I did, using two different shades of pink for interest.

Layer stamping on top of inked backgrounds to add interest.
So there are several ways to add layering to your layouts and cards – but always have a purpose for what you are doing.

“Full Bloom Mini Pages”~ by Kylie Kingham

A helpful layering tip I have always worked with is not being afraid to cut stickers or collectables in half to layer behind or underneath focal points and to build depth. By doing so you are able to get more from your supplies and make them go further.

“You are so lovely “~ by Kavitha

Arranging the layers in slightly angled way gives lots of dimension to your work.Add the embellishments/die cuts in different levels to give more depth to your composition,you can also use foam tape for the top most layer.

To add layers to this level you could use fussy cutting, strips of paper, cheesecloth, sewing thread, mounting tape, folding paper leaves

Tuesday Tutorial ~ Anthology Mixed Media Set of 10 Cards

June 12, 2018

Do you like to make cards?  Are you loving the Anthology Collection?  Last weekend I taught four classes at the Scrapbook and Paper Craft Expo in Brisbane and my Anthology ~ Set of 10 Cards was my most popular class.  So I thought I would make another set of Anthology Cards, but this time I chose to add a bit of Mixed Media into the cards as well.

Mixed Media Kaisercraft Anthology Set of 10 Cards by Alicia McNamara

I do enjoy making sets of ten cards.  This allows you to have a big stash of cards ready and on hand for those upcoming birthdays or when you need a quick thank you card etc.  The sentiments for each of these cards came from the back of the Paper Pad.  There are plenty of sentiments at the back of each Kaisercraft Paper Pad that are perfect for adding to a card.

I filmed a Video Tutorial for this Blog Post and I also have a written Step-By-Step Tutorial with photographs to assist you to re-create these cards.  I also have a lot of other tutorials on my You Tube Channel, if you are interested in Videos.  The corresponding written tutorials are on my blog.  All my projects, videos and tutorials feature Kaisercraft Products.

Instructions to Create a Set of 10 Cards:

How to make a Set of 10 Cards using the Anthology Collection and a few Mixed Media techniques.

Step One

Prepare Base Cards by painting on some water colour stripes and then inking the edges with Bark Ink.

Step Two

Use Templates and a Mixture of Inks (Gum leaf, Vine and Red Gum) to create another layer on the base of each card.

Step Three

Choose 1 sheet from the 6 1/2 inch Paper Pad.  Cut it in half at 3 1/4 inches.  Cut each half into 1 1/4 inch strips.  This will give you ten strips measuring 3 1/4 x 1 1/4 inches.  Ink edges with Bark Ink.

Choose two papers from Paper Pad to use for the Texture Honeycomb Die.  Cut five die cuts and then cut each one in half to make ten, one for each card.

Step Five

Position die cut and paper strip onto each card.  Staple to attach.

Love Always Card by Jowilna Nolte


For my card, I used the Little Buds Embossing Folder EF285.
To add some colour and make the embossing stand out more, I inked the top half of my embossing folder with a grey ink, misted with water
and then embossed the tiny floral paper from the paper pad.
Once dry, the embossed pattern was a lot more visible than on the white background of the paper.
