Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great crafting week. Today I am going to share two cards that I have created using stamps, dies and papers from the Havana Nights Collection by Kaisercraft. Kaisercraft always produce wonderful stamps and dies with each collection and I wanted to share how you can use them along with some simple watercolouring into your cardmaking.
For both cards, I used the white square card pack. The dimensions for the layers I have used are
– navy mat 13cm x 13cm
– TILED (patterned paper) 12.5cm x 12.5cm
– white strip 12.5cm x 5cm
– blue strips 12.5cm x 2cm
For this card, I used four stamps and two dies. All of the colours for the watercolouring were determined by the tiles in the paper.
Simple techniques and maximum impact!
My second card has the same layout as the previous card and also includes similar elements. It uses two dies and two stamps.
As the colour palette is restricted, the elements compliment each other and work together.
Below is video tutorial demonstrating the techniques and the construction of both of these cards.

Do you love the colours in the new Havana Nights collection? They are so tropically colourful and I am a colour lover, are you? The Havana Nights collection makes me think of what it would be like to live on an island…soaking up the sun rays all day by the pool and at the beach, sipping coconut drinks, wearing flowers in my hair…of course I would always have a lovely tan and look amazing in a bikini as well ; )
Today I am sharing a Process Video and I’m stepping you through how I made a set of bright and cheery Havana Nights cards. This set of four cards is guaranteed to brighten someone’s day and maybe have them dreaming about an island lifestyle too!

5 Creative Tips for Using Kaisercraft Templates
Tip #1 ~ Adding Dimension to the Background with a Template
”Living the Dream” Layout ~ By Rikki Graziani
I love using my templates with white ink to add dimension to the background – it mimics the die cut adding dimension.
Tip #2 ~ Creating a Soft, Random Edge with a Template
”Congratulations” Card ~ By Kylie Kingham
A handy tip to remember when using your templates with any medium is to not follow the straight edges of the template.By keeping your medium spread randomly away from the edge ensures a lovely soft effect for your project.

Tip #3 ~ Decorate the Background of a Layout with a Template
“So Gorgeous” Layout ~ By Alicia McNamara
It is easy to create a personalised and unique background for your layout when using Kaisercraft Templates and Inks.
Tip #4 – Create Colour, Texture, and Pattern with a Template
“Perfect Day” Layout ~ By Jowilna Nolte
Use a Template to create colour, texture, and pattern for a layout – you need nothing else to make a beautiful layout. This can be rewarding, economical and creative.
I used my template to create my flowers with and then arrange them to create a field of shimmering flowers acting as patterned paper.
I mixed texture paste with liquid pearls to create a paste in 3 different colours. The cut out flowers can be arranged as you desire and to suit your needs.
A few rhinestones in the centers of the flowers can add dimension and also dresses them up a bit for variety.
As supporting embellishments I used my Collectables pack for additional flowers, leaves, and words.
A few smaller stamped flowers scattered on the background adds delicate details.
One way to add interesting background is by using a template and modeling/texture paste. Want to level it up? Mix the paste with paint, mists or watercolor. Just like what I did with my scrapbook layout.
I also didn’t mix it thoroughly, leaving subtle “white streaks” or “pale shade of pink” to some parts
I also splattered different colors of mists for more texture
