Christmas Edition with a pop of colour by Jowilna Nolte

September 12, 2017

 Hi everyone, Jowilna here with my Tuesday Tutorial showing you how easy it is to add a pop of color to paper and elements in a few easy steps.
I love the Christmas Edition Range of papers, but somehow Christmas doesn’t seem right without a bit of color. So I naturally wanted to add
some color to the range and found a really easy way to achieve it.
Sharpie markers were used to add color to the background paper used on my card, as well as some of the collectables.
The elements and paper took the color really well
and made for a striking finishing product – showing just how versatile this range really is.


The secret to coloring is to layer different colors so that you can add highlights and shadows and achieve beautiful shading.
How to color your elements
step 1 – Start by coloring your poinsettia leaves in orange.

step 2 – Next add some bright pink shading down the middle of the leaves and any dark areas printed on the image.

step 3 – Finish off the leaves with a layer of red. The orange and pink combined with the red makes for a beautiful rich color perfect for Christmas.

step 4 – Trim the background paper to size to fit onto the front of your card.

TIP:  Select three shades of green markers to add color to your leaves. Start with the lightest green working to the darkest green and then blend over everything with the light green again for a seamless effect.

step 5 – Color some holly leaves from your collectables pack.

step 6 – Position your elements together and start layering them onto each other.

step 7 – Use mounting foam dots to adhere some of the elements to add dimension to your card.
Layer the elements underneath each other for interest.

step 8 – Apply glimmer paste through the star stencil.

Add embellishments like buttons, rhinestones and ink splats. Use dimensional glaze to highlight some of the berries on the elements from the collectables pack.

I can’t wait to explore more ways of adding color to this range using different mediums and techniques.
The blank slate means the perfect opportunity for creativity and experiments.

Celebrating Christmas in July with Beck Beattie

September 5, 2017

Hi everyone, Beck Beattie here today with ‘Tutorial Tuesday’. I can’t wait to share with you a fun technique incorporated into my project today

I wanted to take you through how I created the beautiful but subtle Poinsetta and Holly background on my page today.

Step 1:  Stamp the images from the Christmas Edition stamp set featuring the Poinsetta and Holly leaves onto the backgound using a white ink pad.  I have stamped in the areas that would see the effect peeking out from behind the script pattern paper I chose to go over the top on my page.

Step 2:  Add clear or white Embossing Powder while the ink is still wet.

Step3:  Remove the excess embossing powder and using a heat gun, heat to melt the embossing powder.

Step 4:  Take a distress ink or oxides in a brown tone and gently add colour over the top of all the areas where the embossing is featured.  Work in a circular motion to softly build up the colour.

Step 5:  Using  a dry old towel rub over the embossed areas to remove the ink colour that will be resisted by the embossed images.  This adds a beautiful soft element to the page.

Step 6:  Add droplets of water to activate the ink and then blot off with some paper towel

To finish your layout, add a torn piece of the ‘Snowcapped’ paper as well as some of the collectibles and elements from the sticker sheet.  Enhance these with some florals and pearl strip as pictured as well as your journalling.

Here are some more pictures to help you get up close to all the details.

 

 

 

 

Here is the full scrapbook page for you to enjoy of a great family time we had when we recently visited Soverign Hill in Ballarat Victoria Australia.  It is a place set back in the gold mining times.  Each year they put on a wonderful Christmas in July celebration.  I just knew this collection would be perfect for my photos captured that day!

Christmas Jewel Design Team DIY Donna Espiritu Kaisercraft Tutorials

Peace, Love, Joy banner by Donna Espiritu

August 21, 2017

Hello! Donna here with my first post as a Kaisercraft Design Team member.

I used the Christmas Jewel collection to create a banner perfect as a Christmas decoration.

While I was thinking of what to make for today’s project, I knew I wanted to include one of the beautiful, glittery Kaisercraft printed tapes. So, I came up with the idea to create a rosette out of it.

I thought of using the patterned papers from the paper pad but since I will cover them anyway, I just used regular copy papers.

I didn’t cover the entire strip of paper. 2 lines of the printed tape was enough.

I also added “tails” to each one using a metallic silver thread. I used foam tapes to some of the pieces to add depth.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial if you like to make one for a holiday decor.

Cards with Christmas Jewel

August 7, 2017

Hi Kaisercrafters, Mabel here and I’m here to share my first DT post for Kaisercraft!

Christmas Jewel is definitely an unique collection that breaks away from the traditional Christmas colors. I was pleasantly surprised by the looks of this collection and it inspired me to create Christmas cards. It is never too early to start prepping for Christmas!

I had created 2 different cards with the same Kaisercraft supplies.

A simple shaker card will bring some fun to the recipient of the card!

If you realized, I had actually recycled the negatives of the die cutting of snowflakes and used it as the background of my second card!

 

Kaisercraft Products: Christmas Jewel: PP1025 Paper Pad | P2361 Silver Poinsettia | SS344 Sticker Sheet | CT887 Collectables | DD446 Mini Snowflakes Dies | GC103 Platinum Glitter Cardstock | T330 Die Release Tool | CD501 Card Pack Square | T303 Foam Tape | T314 Double Sided Tape 

Others: Sequins | Marker Pen | Border Puncher | Die Cutting Machine | Acetate

 

That’s all for my posts today.

Hope you like the cards I made.

Have a great day ahead. Creative day too.
