Whisper Card Set

January 23, 2019

How you stamp can change the look of a card.  You can stretch how far you can make a stamp work by changing the way you

stamp with it. Today I  would like to share how you can create

two vintage cards using one stamp and die set.

 

” Remember This Moment Card” by Cathy McGrath

KC PRODUCTS: PP1060 Whisper Paper Pad, Decorative Dies – DD992 Leafy Stamp and Die Set, DD507 Nesting Circles and DD55 Round Fancy Frame, CD509 Kraft Card Pack Square ,

CD651 Kraft Cardstock, IP751 Chocolate Ink Pad, F628 Honey Paper Bloom, F661 Black Mini Paper Bloom, T321 Craft Glue, T303 Mounting Foam

OTHER: Seam Binding, Versafine Ink, Clear Embossing Powder

 

 

To create a monotone card, stamp with a wet ink such as Versamark then heat emboss the image using clear  embossing powder. Your image

will have a shine to it yet will not compete with any of your other embellishments.  The overall composition will be muted and balanced.

 

“Double Easel Card” by Cathy McGrath

KC PRODUCTS: PP1060 Whisper Paper Pad, Decorative Dies – DD992 Leafy Stamp and Die Set and  DD805 Perfume Labels, CD509 Kraft Card Pack Square,

Cardstock – CD111 Cookie  and CD651 Kraft, Ink Pads – IP751 Chocolate, IP740 Cotton Candy and IP752 Smoke,  F641 Dusty Pink Paper Bloom, F641 Aubergine Mini Paper Bloom,

T321 Craft Glue, T303 Mounting Foam

To create a romantic feeling card, using muted inks alters the mood of the card.

Using complimentary inks  creates the feeling and cohesion in the overall design. For my card, I selected

Cotton Candy and Smoke ink pads, along with a neutral paper.

Blessed Colouring Cards with Hand Stitching

January 10, 2019

Kaisercraft Blessed Colouring Cards by Alicia McNamara

Do you love Card Making? Have you ever wanted to try some Hand Stitching on your cards?  I have been wanting to try this technique for quite some time and when I saw the pretty colours in the new Blessed Collection by Kaisercraft I decided to give it a go.  I purchased some brightly coloured hand-embroidery thread from Spotlight and with a little You Tube search I was hand stitching like a Pro in no time lol! You can do it too!! Its actually very relaxing…even my hubby stitched a card and liked it!

These cards also involve some colouring, so if you enjoy colouring an image, you need to keep an eye out for this pretty paper collection.  I coloured my flowers with Kaisercraft Gel Pens.

Affirmation Cards – By Rikki G

January 2, 2019

Good morning how are you? Rikki here to kick off the new month and to share one of own new Kaisercraft Collections – Blessed – IN STORE NOW!!!!

Whats not to love about this collection…… the bright colours with a touch of gold foil, and as it title suggest its a collection that reminds you of what you should be thankful and BLESSED for, and with a New Year its a great collection to help you with this process.

So I am kicking off this reflection with some Affirmation Cards and maybe it might inspire you if your are doing this years #littleword……

 

PAPERS: EVERLASTING Collection: PP1059 Paper Pad, CT952 Collectables

KC PRODUCTS: IP743 Spearmint, IP740 Cotton Candy, IP736 Blush Ink Pad, CD650 Smooth White Cardstock, T321 Acid Free Craft Glue

 

 

Step 1: 

Cut some card stock to small squares I chose to 8.5 cm x 8.5 cm (4”x 4”)… I also used the KAISERCRAFT SMOOTH CARD STOCK, rather than one with a weave, I find that this works the best with the KAISER INK and water… so you dont see the layers of colour and water in between the weave. Plus it has minimal warping with it dries.

 

Step 2:

Place some KAISER INK onto some old packaging making sure the colour is on the plastic – mist with a little water…. and place onto the cardstock.

(To see this and how its done pop over to the Kaisercraft Youtube channel)

 

Step 3: 

Fussy cut some of the black and white flowers out of the PAPER PAD and also cut some black and white stripe paper into small feature strips, you can use the this pattern out of the PAPER PAD also.

Step 4: 

Now its time to construct the affirmation cards…….

Card Making DIY Die Cuts Machine Everlasting Kaiser Mists

Monochromatic Cards with Kasia

December 4, 2018

Hi Guys, Kasia here with a set of monochromatic cards using the gorgeous
Everlasting Collection and a couple super cool new release dies.

LAYERING ROSE DIE
The following two cards feature the Layering Rose Die, which I am so completely in love with.

You can purchase the DD823 Layering Rose Die and other products used to create these cards HERE
or visit your local Kaisercraft stockist.

I may have got a little bit of RSI die cutting this die as I couldn’t stop exploring
colour combinations and each and every combination blew me away!

LACE TOPPER DIE
The second Die I got to play with this month was the Lace Topper.

You can purchase the DD622 Lace Topper Die and other products used to create these cards HERE
or visit your local Kaisercraft stockist.

 

It is another layering die but unlike the Layering Rose, it is very bold and creates a real statement on your card.

I created a very simple card with clean lines and a softer version with lots of layers.

 

FLOCKED DAMASK SPECIALTY PAPER
The Damask flocked specialty paper is just stunning.

You can purchase the PS548 Flocked Damask specialty paper and other products used to create these cards HERE
or visit your local Kaisercraft stockist.

I found that with the luscious flocked texture of the pattern my cards didn’t need much at all to make them beautiful and timeless.

I couldn’t resist using the Layered Rose die again and this demonstrates just how versatile this die can be.

 

You can also download the full instructions and product lists of the above cards by clicking on each individual card.

I hope I have inspired you to get creating and making some cards to add to your stash.

xx Kasia
