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.

Have you seen Kaisercraft’s new range of 6×6 Templates?  They are the perfect size for Card Making and can also be used on Layouts or Mixed Media projects, when you are not needing a full 12×12 Template.  This month, to co-ordinate with the two gorgeous collections; Wildflower and Pawfect, Kaisercraft has released four new and exciting designs:

The Design Team were asked to make a project featuring one of these templates.  As you scroll down to view their creations, see if you can spot which template each designer used.

‘Attention Seeker’ Mini Printer’s Tray by Sonia Thomason

Not only are the Wood Flourishes you get in the packs gorgeous but the wooden box they come in is just as fabulous! I’ve spray painted two of the boxes in black and then joined them together to create a fun Mini Printer’s Tray!

Kaisercraft products used: P2262 ‘Puppy’ | P2264 ‘Woof’ | P2267 ‘Pawsome’ |  SS334 Pawfect Sticker Sheet Dog | CT876 Pawfect Collectables Dog | FL596 Pets Flourish Pack

Other: Black Spray Paint

The Wood Flourishes mix and match so easily with the paper collections and add fabulous dimension to the tray:

I’ve chosen to leave the wood flourishes raw as it works so well with the Pawfect Paper Collection colour palette. I removed some of the middle dividers of  one of the boxes to make a larger area that would fit the quote. Just trim the pieces out carefully with your craft knife and then sand the rough edges before painting:

Quick Watercolour Cards with Kylie plus Video.

March 14, 2017

Hello friends, Kylie with you all again today!

I’m sharing how to make some gift cards that you will find are so quick and you will find yourself creating them in no time! I’m using the new ‘Wildflower’ collection.This range has a beautiful,soft theme of florals and watercolour prints in a gorgeous pastel colour palette.

Here is a little look at my completed cards-

I was really happy with the completed result of these cards.I’d love to share with you how I made them and there is also a short video process you can watch as well. But first here is what you will need-

I am using the PS484 Sentiments Gloss paper.It has different quotes on 12 cards that you can seperate for your projects.I am also using the following-

Your favourite Kaiser Mist colours.(Be adventurous and add lots of different colours!)

Some double sided tape and foam dots or tape.

Water mist spray bottle.

Plastic packaging bag or sandwich bag.

Glue.

PP1016 Wildflower Paper Pad and CT878 Collectables.

Once you have your supplies gently fold and tear which quote card you would like to use.I also like to trim off the perforated edge so it has a neat finish.

Next take your plastic packaging bag or sandwich bag and spray your Kaiser Mist colours together in a cluster.You don’t need to go crazy, less is more for this technique. Then spray over the Kaiser Mist with the water mist.This is totally optional, I find by doing so gives a softer result.If bold is your tune then don’t add your water.

*TIP- Don’t over spray or saturate.

Next, take your sentiments card and face down press over the watercolours on the plastic bag.Keep moving and pressing the card around until you are happy with the result.Allow it to dry fully!  It will look a little something like this-

Next take your fave piece of paper from the paper pad….(It will be hard to decide as they are all so pretty!)……And fold it in half.Using the sentiments card as a guide,trim down the paper to size,allowing a slight border.

*TIP- Do make sure the Kaiser Mist is fully dry!

Using double sided tape,adhere the card to the backing…..

All that is left to do now is embellish. I told you they were quick! Once you have finished you will have some pretty little gift tags like these…………..

I hope my tutorial has given you some inspiration today.I have also prepared a short process video for you to watch as well.Enjoy!!

Until next time,

Kylie.
