KC PRODUCTS: KM121 White, KM122 Yellow, KM124 Red, KM125 Candy, KM126 Lime, KM127 Turquoise, KM132 Shimmer Gold, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Glue.

 

Step 1: 

Mist some water on the flower you are wanting to paint….. Then with a brush drop and build up the KAISER MIST – CANDY and allow to dry, before starting the next step.

Step 2: 

Repeat above step this time with KAISER MIST – TURQUOISE – remember to allow to dry before going onto the next step.

Step 3:

Repeating above steps with the KAISER MIST – YELLOW. Now once that is dry build up your colours if you want them more intense.

With the leaves – KAISER MIST – LIME …. wet over the leaves and allow to ”bleed” out and go beyond the gold foil.

Repeat this step with all the colours and let them blend beyond the gold foil……. and dont forget to splatter more intense colours.

Add KAISER MIST-  SHIMMER  GOLD to highlight areas this is a shimmer so it has no pigment in it so plunge your brush to the bottom of the bottle and go heavy with it – this will take a little bit to build up..

Dont worry if you cant understand theres is a video on our KAISERCRAFT  Youtube channel so you can follow along.

*** Tip: To stop your colours being ”mud” allow to dry in between, and dont be afraid to build the colour up to make sections intense.

Till next time have a creative day.

Everlasting Jowilna Nolte Layouts step by step

Everlasting Double Page Layout by Jowilna Nolte

December 6, 2018

Today on the blog I am sharing a double page layout using the gorgeous Everlasting Collection.
I love the how versatile this range is – so much so that I even used patterned papers as my background -something I normally find too busy, but with this range they were simply perfect.

Follow instructions below to recreate all download instructions by clicking on the above image.


Step 1 –  Adhere the 2 x ONE and ONLY Patterned papers together with a piece of double-sided tape to form your background.
Step 2 – Cut out cards and elements to use on your layout from the Love You patterned paper sheet.

Step 3 – Cut out 5 x flowers from the BLOOM sheet. You need at least 1 large flower cluster and 3 smaller flowers as well as 2 x leaves. Ink the edges of the cut-out elements.

Step 4 – Add brown splats onto the background papers and leave to dry while prepping the rest of your elements.

Step 5 – Arrange the photo matts and cut out cards onto your background.
Position the elements in the plain brown strip running across the middle of your layout.

Stagger the photos and elements to create interest.
Tuck the cut-out flowers behind the photo matts for added interest.
Layer some scrunched up pink thread in between the flowers for dimension and texture.

Step 6 – Punch a decorative strip out of the BLOOM (reverse) using a border punch.

Step 7 – Use your craft scissors and cut the punched strip in half to form 2 thinner strips to use.

Step 8 – Adhere the barcode strips, punched border strips and other elements to your layout as per the image.
Use the cut-out washi tape strips from the LOVE YOU sheet and adhere them to the cards and dress up with embellishments.

Step  9 – Add rhinestones, wooden flourishes and sewing details to finish off your layout as desired.

Adding some sewing, and thread in between the layered flowers add some texture and also repeats the beautiful shades of pinks from the paper.

Until next time I hope you are inspired by this Double page layout to create your own using this stunning and versatile range.

“Everlasting is the perfect range to celebrate LOVE – young love, old love, new love and even those gorgeous grandbabies.” JN

Foam Flower Tutorial with Bonus Layout.

November 13, 2018

Art Foam Flowers

We create for many different reasons,  sometimes for pleasure or perhaps to capture a precious memory or

occasion that has happened in our lives.

Finding the right paper or embellishment can help us to achieve the reason why we have started to create in the first place.

Creating flowers adds an element of beauty to layouts.  They can be used in both masculine and feminine layouts.

By making them feel ‘vintage’ you certainly can  see how effectively they  compliment photos and papers.

Varying the size of the flowers also adds interest to layouts .

To learn how to make these flowers, watch the tutorial below.

Card Making Christmas HOW TO: Sparkle step by step

HOW TO: Make a Tri-Shutter Card

August 10, 2018

Add a little SPARKLE into someone’s day by sending them one of these gorgeous
interactive Tri- Shutter Cards similar to the ones that Alicia McNamara has made for us here.

Follow these Step by Step instructions and you will discover these aren’t as difficult to create as they look
but ever so effective and eye catching, especially using the gorgeous SPARKLE collection with its rose
gold foiled elements like on the following pages.

 

INSTRUCTIONS:
STEP ONE – Make the Card Base

  • From a 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock – white is a great colour to use as a base
  • Cut it in half so that you have two 6 x 12″ rectangles.  (this will make two cards)
  • Score each card piece at 2 inches, 4 inches, 8 inches and 10 inches vertically.
  • Score horizontally at 2 inches and 4 inches as per the diagram below.

  • Cut your card horizontally following the red cut lines as per the diagram below starting at two inches from the top and two inches from the left-hand side and stopping two inches from the right-hand side.
  • Repeat at four inches from the top.

  • Fold your card into mountains (folding towards you) and valleys (folds away from you) as per example below.

 

STEP TWO – Decorate the Card Base

  • Cut two    6″ x 2″ rectangles of printed paper to cover the left and right sides of the cards
  • Cut six      2″ x 2″ squares of printed paper to cover each of the squares
  • Cut three  4″ x 2″rectangles of printed paper for the middle sections.

TIP: Cut the above pieces slightly smaller to give a white border on each section if desired.

Download full instructions to recreate the SPARKLE tri shutter cards shown below HERE.

 

STEP THREE – Embellishing the Cards

  • Create three card bases as per the above instructions
  • Use  a combination of the paper gold foiled papers LUSTER, GLISTENING and ILLUMINATE  and cover the small squares and inside rectangles as per the downloadable instructions or as desired using coordinating papers

P2594 LUSTER

 

  • Use the top three 4″ x 3″ rectangles and matte onto white cardstock
  • Fussy cut poinsettias from GLINT.  Cut each in half and attach behind each sentiment using foam tape to add dimension.
  • Adhere these sentiments to the card fronts using foam tape
  • Further decorate cards as desired using a combination of collectables, rhinestone strips and ribbon.

 

TIP:  You could keep one of the rectangles in the middle blank to write a personal greeting or message.
