Pen and Ink Renee Aslette Tutorial Tuesday

“LOVE” a Pen and Ink Layout Tutorial by Renee Aslette

April 17, 2018

Hello Friends,

Today is all about the “LOVE”.

I have used the Pen and Ink Collection to create this Tuesday Tutorial.

I began with the background P2510 Wallpaper, then I tore a piece to the left and right of P2511 Lacey paper.

I always like to layout my embellishments and photo mat so that I know where they will sit.

I then set about creating a stamped background with the CS324 Clear Stamp set from this collection.  I used the Kaisercraft Ink Pad – Black and the floral stamp from the set.  Here is what it looked like before I lay everything down.

Some of it does get covered, but there will be pieces that pop out.

Then it is just a matter of layering.

Below you will find a video tutorial that will show you how I created the layers.

Here are some close-ups:

I love how this collection can be used with the neutral colourings, or you could add a pop of colour.

I added a little Printed Tape – Arrows Black to this layout, and it was the perfect combination.

Here you can see some of the stamping detail.

DD443 Decorative Die – Film Edges was used for a piece of the layering along with all the beautiful pieces from the Collectables and the Sticker Sheet.

Here is the video:

Vintage Card Tutorial

April 3, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope that you have had a safe and restful Easter break with your loved ones. Today I am sharing a vintage, inchie inspired birthday card using the beautiful Pen and Ink Collection which is being released by Kaisercraft this month. It has soft muted tones and beautiful coordinating stamps and dies.

My focal image is this stamped butterfly. It was created by stamping the clear stamp onto some script paper from the paper pad and fussy cutting it out.

To add dimension to the papers, all were inked with bark ink and distressed. This adds to the vintage feel.

A selection of complimentary flowers in various sizes and in muted tones was added to the base of the card.

A sentiment was added from the paper pad and adhered using foam tape.

Below I have a video tutorial which demonstrates the construction of the card.

Fairy Garden Jowilna Nolte Layouts Misty Mountains Tutorial Tuesday Tutorials

Tuesday Tutorial by Jowilna Nolte

March 27, 2018

I love creating layouts using more than 1 range of papers. Finding ways of incorporating different papers and elements together is so much fun.
Today I am showing you how I used the 2 ranges from this month together to create a double page layout. And I simply love it!

and


In my opinion it adds lots of interest. It can also help you use up all your stash that may be stumping your creativity a bit.
Use what you have and find ways to make it work together beautifully.

Adding Interest to your flowers

For my flower centers I used a custom mixture of different coloured micro-beads and glitter. I wanted to add some dimension to the flowers
and this was the perfect way to do it without too much bulk. The different colours also helped to pull together all the different colours in my layout.

step 1 – Cut out all the flowers for your layout using your Precision scissors from the Moonstone paper sheet.

step 2 – Add a small amount of dimensional glaze where you want to add the beads.

step 3 – Lightly sprinkle the micro-bead mixture over the glaze and leave to dry. Decant the excess beads back into the container.

Adding colour to the background

To pull everything together on my background I used different inks in green and purple, representing the two different ranges of papers.

step 1 – Add a few drops of ink onto a small plastic packet. Lightly mist the ink with water.

step 2 – Stamp the ink onto the patterned paper sheets you are using on your background.


step 3 – Leave the ink to dry completely and then cut your different papers into strips to use on your background.

The inked paper strips form my background and the inked pieces adds interest and ties everything together beautifully.

Cluster the flowers in the top left and right hand corners to frame your photos and paper strips in the middle.

A few dark purple elements like the stamped triangle and buttons pick up on the dark purple pieces throughout the layout.

Products used
Kaisercraft Products: Misty Mountain Collection: P2497 Marbled | P2500 Light Leaks | CS323 Clear Stamps |  PP1040 Paper Pad |
Fairy Garden Collection: P2495 Moonstone | T316 Precision scissors | T317 Craft scissors
Other: dimensional glaze | inks | sewing machine | micro-beads

I hope this inspires you to try using different collections together for something new. I love creating with different collections – using what I love from each one.
Until next time, Love Jowilna!

Card Making Do not use this category Havana Nights Tutorial Tuesday

Watercolour Cards using Kaisercraft Stamps and Dies

January 30, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great crafting week. Today I am going to share two cards that I have created using stamps, dies and papers from the Havana Nights Collection by Kaisercraft. Kaisercraft always produce wonderful stamps and dies with each collection and I wanted to share how you can use them along with some simple watercolouring into your cardmaking.

For both cards, I used the white square card pack. The dimensions for the layers I have used are

– navy mat 13cm x 13cm

– TILED (patterned paper) 12.5cm x 12.5cm

– white strip 12.5cm x 5cm

– blue strips 12.5cm x 2cm

For this card, I used four stamps and two dies. All of the colours for the watercolouring were determined by the tiles in the paper.

Simple techniques and maximum impact!

My second card has the same layout as the previous card and also includes similar elements. It uses two dies and two stamps.

 

As the colour palette is restricted, the elements compliment each other and work together.

Below is video tutorial demonstrating the techniques and the construction of both of these cards.
