Inspiration for Using Texture Decorative Dies

April 25, 2018

We all love Kaisercraft Decorative Dies and with more dies being released each month it is difficult not to keep changing the name of your “favourite” die!  Two of the latest dies released for this month are Texture dies.  These dies make adding a little texture to your projects simple and effective.

DD480 Texture Brickwork Decorative Die

The design team has a stunning showcase of projects for you today.  It is amazing how versatile a simple die can be.  These projects demonstrate how each crafter can use a die and create a totally different layout or card expressing their individual crafting style.

“Remember” Layout with Texture Die by Jowilna Nolte

For my layout, I used a piece of scrap cardstock that had some left-over ink marks on it to die-cut my bricks out of. The ink marks leave a beautiful and interesting effect.
To further add interest I scattered some of the inner brick portions around the layout.

Friendship Inspired Projects

April 18, 2018

A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow. – William Shakespeare

Friends are such special people.  Friendship plays different roles for us over the space of our lives and as we grow friendship presents itself in different forms of people.  Do you ever think how lucky we are to have our crafty friends that share our love for crafting?  Many of these people we meet over the internet in Facebook groups, some we meet up with once or twice a year at crafty events, but for the most part of our lives we find ourselves messaging them or commenting on their work in little snippets of time while we make dinner, cleaning the house or are crafting away on a project.

Today’s blog post is all about Friendship and the Design Team has created projects inspired by this theme…

 You are lovely layout by Jowilna Nolte

I Love using clear stamps on my layouts, and for today’s layout, I used the beautiful butterfly stamp in three different ways.
I stamped it onto white cardstock and added colour to it musing watercolour paint, then stamped it onto acetate and layered it over the coloured butterfly using a brad
to attach it. And lastly, I stamped the same butterfly onto shrink plastic and created an embellishment for my layout.
1 Stamp and 3 different ways – so much fun to see how you can get the most out of your products.

The base butterfly was coloured using shades of pink to match the paper.
The delicate acetate butterfly layered on top only needs a brad to attach it to the center, and don’t forget to fold the wings up for some dimension.

The shrink plastic butterfly was layered on top of my flower cluster for added dimension.

It is so easy to create beautiful elements for projects using your stamps. And this butterfly is going to be one of my all-time favourites.
