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.

“Enjoy the Little Things” by Cathy McGrath

December 1, 2017

Hello everyone! It’s Cathy here on the Kaisercraft blog today. I am thrilled to be sharing with you a card that I have created using the brand new Wandering Ivy Collection. It is a gorgeous collection with so many floral images, deep blues and purple tones that are perfect for creating projects for so many occassions. The card that I am sharing with you today is an all occassion card with an uplifting sentiment, a perfect go to card to have in your stash.

I have used the stamp set to create my own sentiment and focal point of my card. This technique is shared in the video below.

Modifying the paper blooms and adding a flat back pearl adds a vintage feel to the card.

Using mounting foam adds dimensions and adds interest to your cards. It helps to showcase the layers of beautiful patterned papers that you have used in your card design.

Below is the video tutorial which explains the process in creating this card.

Christmas Mini Album Tutorial Tuesday Videos

Christmas Envelope Mini Album Tutorial

October 17, 2017

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week viewing the new collections from Kaisercraft. As you have seen, Kaisercraft have released some beautiful Christmas collections this year and the Mint Wishes Collection certainly doesn’t disappoint. Today I am sharing an envelope mini album that I created using this collection. This album is a gift for a dear friend of mine who is a proud ‘poppy.’ He enjoys sharing pictures of his grandson from his phone, so my gift to him is this album. As he is a non crafter, the album is straight forward therefore it is easy to construct.

I have two videos to share with you. One is a walk through of the completed album and the second is the tutorial. So grab a cuppa and enjoy!

 

The Video Walk Through

The next video is the tutorial. This is a lengthy video as it was filmed in real time. To assist you in your viewing, you can fast forward to the following sections:

33m matting the covers

39min hinges

51min pages and inserts

57min matting pages and inserts

1hr 1min attaching pages to album

1hr 3 min creating the pocket and belly band

 

 

<

 

The format of the album was deliberate. I didn’t want it to be too difficult for my friend, as some mini albums have a lot of interactions. However there are still lots of spaces for photos.

 

Mini books are great inserts into mini albums. You can journal and add small photos. The sentiments from the cut a part sheet are great for creating these.

The papers in the collection coordinate beautifully! You can mix and match so all of the components of your album effortlessly. By limiting the colour palet, it makes the designing the album less complicated and it makes the whole experience enjoyable.

 

Kaisercraft Products:  PP234 Mint Wishes 12 x 12 Paper Pad| SS348 Sticker Sheet | CT891 Collectables | Cardstock CD102 Licorice and CD651 Kraft |CD509 Card Pack Square | Rhinestones RS445 Ice and SB700 Silver| T321 Glue| T318 Craft Knife| T317 Craft Scissors

Other: Distress Ink Vintage Photo |Scor-Tape| Crop-o-dile Corner Chomper Tool Deco and Stub and Corner Rounder Tools.

 

I hope you’ll try and create an envelope mini album with one of the Kaisercraft Collections.

With one pack of envelopes, you can make two mini albums. These are great as gifts and also Christmas is coming!

Happy crafting!

Hugs from Cathy

Alicia McNamara Card Making Christmas Tuesday Tutorials Videos

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.
