DIY Clean and Simple Christmas Cards

September 19, 2017

Hello Kaisercraft Friends,

Today I’m sharing a Tutorial on how to make your own DIY Clean and Simple Christmas Cards.  These cards are perfect for mass production.  They are quick to make, sparkly and can be made in any colour you choose!  I filmed a Video Tutorial on how I made these cards so you can see exactly how I put them together.

DIY Clean and Simple Christmas Cards

DIY Kaisercraft Christmas Card Tutorial by Alicia McNamara

Kaisercraft Products you will need:

Glitter Card Stock in three colours…

GC109 Emerald, GC107 Golden, GC120 Ruby

DD321 Decorative Die – Merry Christmas

IT021 Mini Designer Template – Flourish Tree

Kaiser Colour Paint in three colours…

KC050 Metallic Gold, KC028 Green, KC009 Red

CD511 Card Pack C6 – White

T321 Acid Free Craft Glue

(You will also need texture paste)

3 Easy Steps to Make the Cards

1. Mix Paint with Textured Paste and smooth over the top of the template and onto the card bases.

Hints: When mixing the paint and texture paste do not use too much paint.  You want it to be mostly texture paste with just enough paint to give you the colour you want.  If you make the mixture too runny it will seep under the template and ruin your image.  Also make sure you clean your template between colours and immediately after use. When you clean it do it very carefully with a baby wipe or paper towel and water.  Then pat it dry gently.  You don’t want to lift up the delicate swirls in the image which can be easily done if you are too rough with the template.

2. Die Cut the “Merry Christmas” sentiment out of Glitter Card Stock.

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!

Golden Grove, Happy Days and a Farewell

July 18, 2017

Hi everyone, it is sadly my final post as a member of the amazing team here at Kaisercraft. I have had the most amazing experience over the past two years and it wasn’t easy to make the choice to not reapply to be on the team. However with two girls growing up rapidly I need to spend a little less time in the craft room unfortunately. I know I will miss playing with the amazing collections each month however I have seen what is coming up over the next few months and combined with the fabulous new Design Team – you are all in for a wonderful creative time!

For my final post I was so happy to play with the gorgeously bright and beautiful Golden Grove Collection. I adore all of the yellow and gold hues that are teamed with earthy browns and greens. This inspired me to make a happy layout aptly titled ‘Happy Days’!!

‘Happy Days’

Kaisercraft products used: P2352 ‘Gold Dahlia’ | P2353 Greenery’ | P2354 ‘Collated’ | P2357 ‘Soft Moss’ | SS343 Golden Grove Sticker Sheet | CT886 Golden Grove Collectables | CD102 Licorice Weave Cardstock | FL605 Harvest Flourish Pack | KM111 White Kaiser Mist | KM113 Coffee Kaiser Mist | SB700 Silver Rhinestones | ST929 Inspirational Clear Sticker Sheet | T303 Foam Tape

Other: Paperclip

With the gorgeous floral images in this collection a little bit of fussy cutting was a must! I wanted to work with layers and have a multi photo layout as well. To start the layout, I took Soft Moss as my background paper and trimmed approximately 1cm off of each side. I attached this to the centre of the Collated paper. I then randomly flicked White Mist over the page and set it aside to dry:

Take 3 photos and trim them down so they fit comfortable across your page (my photos measured approximately 8.5 x 12cm). Matt your photos using black cardstock. Attach your photos across the middle of your page using foam tape – I placed mine on slight angles.

Using the Gold Dahlia paper, fussy cut an assortment of the floral images. Use Foam Tape to attach these images to the top right hand side of your photos and  to the bottom left hand side.  Take one of the clocks and the white floral image from the Collectables Pack and attach the clock using Foam Tape at the top of the photos and the white flower at the bottom of the photos:

From the Sticker Sheet, remove the lace border, trim it to fit your background paper and then attach it to the top of your page using Foam Tape. Trim the ‘Live, Love, Laugh’ strip from the Greenery paper and attach it using Foam Tape to the bottom of your background paper:

Take some of the leaf sprays and leaves from the Harvest Flourish pack and slip them amongst your fussy cut floral images. From the Collectables Pack take two yellow butterflies, two yellow and brown butterflies, a large leaf and the ‘Happy Days’circle and add them to your floral clusters. Take a quote from the Clear Stickers and add it below your photos. Randomly add a few Silver Rhinestones to add dimension and flow to your page. Finally carefully flick some Coffee Kaiser Mist on your page. Add a paper clip to the far right hand photo and you are finished!

Thank you to Kaisercraft and all of you for the past two fabulous years. I can’t wait to see what the incredibly talented new team have in store for us all!

Happy crafting
