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.

Coloured Valentine’s Day Cards ~ Tuesday Tutorial and Video

February 14, 2017

Happy Valentine’s Day Kaisercrafters! I’m sending lots of love out to you today : ) and I’m also sharing a Video Tutorial on how to make an easy Valentine’s Day card using Gel Pens and a Kaisercraft Post Card Book! So if you need a Valentines Card or an “anything card”, and you love to colour, this post is especially for you xx

Kaisercraft Gel Pens

Have you seen the gorgeous Kaisercraft Gel Pens? These pens can be purchased in the complete set of 48 pens and include 12 Glitter Pens, 12 Metallic Pens, 12 Neon Pens and 12 Pastel Pens.  With the Kaisercraft Gel Pens you can really achieve the colours you desire in a card.

Maybe you like lots of bright, neon colours like in this card…

Or perhaps you prefer more of the pastel hues like in these two cards…

To make these three cards I used pages from three of the Kaiser Colour Post Card Books.

These books measure approximately 4 x 6 inches and the pages easily tear out of the book so they are perfect for the front cover of a card.

Watch my Video Tutorial below to see exactly how I make my card : )

You can see my first Colouring Video and all my other Kaisercraft Videos here.

How to Make the Cards

Step One: Colour your chosen image.

Step Two: Adhere your image to a base card.

Step Three: Add a ribbon or some Rhinestones if desired

Kaisercraft Valentine Cards by Alicia McNamara

There is no hard thinking required to make these cards.  No fussing over elements, sketches or anything that requires strenuous creativity!  Its a very simple process that consists of some relaxed colouring time and then a little bit of card stock and double-sided tape or glue to put your card together.

Why not spread the love this Valentine’s Day with a beautifully coloured card.  Or get the kids onto it, they will be entertained for a couple of hours!

Be sure to let me know here if you make a card like this, or just complete some colouring.  I would love to see your work.

Happy Valentine’s Day,

Gel Pens Layouts NEW Product P.S I Love You Videos

“Sweet” P.S I Love You Layout with Video by Alicia

December 1, 2016

Hello Kaisercrafters,

Alicia here with you again and today I am sharing a Layout and Process Video using the gorgeous new P.S I Love You Collection.

Kaisercraft P.S I Love You Layout by Alicia McNamara

This is the Layout I made and below is the video of how I made it…

Kaisercraft P.S I Love You Layout by Alicia McNamara

This collection is such a pretty one…I’m a big fan of the colours grey and pink, they go so well together.  These papers really are a joy to create with.

Kaisercraft P.S I Love You Layout by Alicia McNamara

All of these little scrappy bits of paper were actually off cuts from other layouts and cards I have already made with this collection.  I didn’t cut anything specifically for this layout I just used scraps!  Scraps are perfect for building layers behind a photo.

Kaisercraft P.S I Love You Layout by Alicia McNamara

The Collectables in this collection worked so well with the scrappy layers.

I painted the wooden butterfly with some white paint to match it in to the collection.

The silver gel pen and splats of paint give a very subtle detail to the background paper.

Kaisercraft Peek-a-Boo Layout and Video Tutorial by Alicia McNamara

Hi Kaisercrafters, Alicia here with you today.

On the 1st of September 2016 we welcomed a second beautiful boy into our family  – Billy Blake McNamara.  So you can understand how excited I was when I found out that Kaisercraft was releasing a new set of baby papers called the Peek-a-Boo Collection.  Today I am sharing a Layout with Process Video using the blue baby papers from “Peek-a-Boo”.  It was nice to have the opportunity to scrap this recent photo of Baby Billy.

Here is the video of how I made the Layout:

 

This Layout features the gorgeous new Decorative Die released this month called Carousel.  It is just beautiful and will be perfect for your Baby cards, Baby layouts and other Baby projects.

I have been loving using the Kaisercolour Gel Pens with the Kaisercraft Templates.  It gives a very accurate pattern, much neater and clearer than paint, Kaiser Mists or texture paste.  Plus there is no mess to clean up!!

Kaisercraft Peek-a-Boo Layout and Video Tutorial by Alicia McNamara

  I have the original 24 pack of Gel Pens, but now you can also purchase 12 packs, a 48 pack and each colour can also be purchased singularly.  Check out the full range of gel pens here and the full range of Kaisercraft templates here.  There are endless possibilities combining these two amazing Kaisercraft products!

Thank you for stopping by today to check out my Layout and watch my video…I hope you a new idea or two…if you decide to give the Gel Pens and Templates a try, be sure to let me know.  I would love to see the results.
