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.

Other: White smooth cardstock, Rhinestones, graphite pencil, texture paste, liquid pearls.

 

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

Happy Valentine’s Day Kaisercrafters!

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.

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

Kaisercraft Valentine Cards by Alicia McNamara

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,

t301_gluestick

Description

Kaisercraft’s Glue Stick is a quick and easy adhesive that provides a smooth layer of glue that can be applied to paper, wood and cardboard.

Product Uses

Kaisercraft’s Glue Stick can be used on all paper crafts and Beyond the Page Projects where a very fine layer of glue is required so that the paper adheres smoothly to a wooden project.  When applying the glue takes a few seconds to set so re-positioning the paper is possible if desired.

Example

T302 Foam Dots

t302_foamdots

Kaisercraft’s Foam Dots is a Self Adhesive Foam punched into small circles.  These are sticky on both sides and need to be simply popped out of the sheet and the adhesive removed.  Then they can be attached to layers of paper.  The foam adds height and dimension to the project.  The size of the circle allows for more intricately cut pieces to be adhered without the adhesive being visible.

Product Uses

Kaisercraft’s Foam Dots are perfect for popping up small die cuts and papers adding layers to a Card or Layout.

Description

 Kaisercraft’s Acid Free Craft Glue is a Liquid Glue in bottle form that starts off as white in colour  but dries clear.  It is Acid-Free and permanent which means it is safe to use with photographs and will permanently hold photos and papers together in a Scrapbooking Layout. Acids and photographs don’t mix. Photos have acid in them from processing. When those acids are combined with acidic adhesives,  a chemical reaction occurs. Over time the acid silently migrates within your album leaving you with discoloured, brittle or deteriorated photos and layouts.  Kaisercraft’s Acid Free Craft Glue will not discolour or become brittle with age.

Product Uses

Kaisercraft’s Acid Free Glue is ideal for Scrapbooking photos, documents, mementos and art works

Example

Fathers Day Card-igan inspiration with Kylie Kingham

August 22, 2016

Hello everyone, it’s Kylie here with you today, to share a fun Fathers Day card using the new Barber Shoppe collection.

I loved this collection as soon as I saw it. It includes a fantastic range of papers with varying patterns and textures in a beautiful blend of hues. Perfect for creating a wide variety of projects for that someone special. With Fathers Day approaching I have chosen to make a fun themed card.

IMG_8085

By intermixing the various themed papers I was able to create a tie and vest. The Cogs wooden flourishes with this collection made for some ideal cardigan buttons. I painted these with the Winter Grey and Charcoal Kaisermists mixed together to give a nice steel tone.

Kaisercraft Products: Outside vest- Vest- P2136 Aftershave | Pocket-  CD156 Blue Haze cardstock | Vest Buttons- Cogs Wooden Flourish painted with mixed Winter Grey and Charcoal Kaisermists| Pocket studs- SB791 Pewter pearls | Pocket tag- P2134 Razor stamped with Barber Shoppe clear stamp| Other- Brown stitching

IMG_7970pocket

By adding a small pocket to the front added that element of fun for including a little docket with the definition of a gentleman.I used the Barber Shoppe clear stamp for this text and distressed the edges a little.

Kaisercraft Products: Vest- P2136 Aftershave | Pocket- CD156 Blue Haze cardstock | Pocket Tag- P2134 Razor stamped with Barber Shoppe clear stamps | Studs- Pewter pearls SB791 | Other- Brown Stitching

IMG_7965pic9

When you open the card, it reveals a lined cardigan, shirt, tie and pants complete with a belt of course! I really wanted the pants to have a stone wash denim appearance and I was able to do this by lightly sanding the cardstock followed by spritzing with White Kaisermist. I then gently blended with my finger. Another Cog from the flourish pack was used for the belt buckle.

Kaisercraft Products: Vest lining- P2139 Moustache | Shirt- P2137 Comb | Tie- P2133 Groomed | Belt- P2134 Razor | Pants- CD151 Navy sprayed with White Kaisermist | Belt buckle-Cogs Flourish pack | Studs- SB791 Pewter pearls | Other- Brown stitching

IMG_7964pic5

When you lift the shirt up it reveals a lovely and fun message! “Moustache Gracias. Thankful for the wonderful man in my life” I really like all the different elements included with the collectables. I couldn’t not include a moustache somewhere! By raising the text label with foam tape gives layering of the collectables more dimension.

Kaisercraft Products: Backing paper- From 6′ x 6′ paper pad as well as P2133 Groomed | Collectables | Capitals Alpha rub ons | Pewter pearls SB791 | Kaisermist ink splots – Charcoal | Foam tape

I hope you have enjoyed my little project today!

Until next time, have a wonderful day!
