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 #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.

Tip #5 – Mixing Paint and Modeling Paste
“Lovely Moment” Layout ~ By Donna Espiritu
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
