5 Creative Tips for Using Kaisercraft Templates

January 17, 2018

Do you love the Templates Kaisercraft bring out every month?  Would you like some tips on using Kaisercraft Templates? Today the Design Team are demonstrating 5 Tips for using Templates and their accompanying creative projects.

New Kaisercraft Templates

Have you seen the gorgeous new Templates released this month?

IT458 – Floral

IT030 – Typography

IT029 – Screen

5 Creative Tips for Using Kaisercraft Templates

Tip #1 ~ Adding Dimension to the Background with a Template

”Living the Dream” Layout ~ By Rikki Graziani

I love using my templates with white ink to add dimension to the background – it mimics the die cut adding dimension.

Kaisercraft Products: Havana Nights Collection: P2455 Lush | P2459 Clay | SS354 Sticker Sheet | CT897 Collectables FL616 Flourish Pack Tropics | DD806 Cut out Patterns Decorative Die| IT029 Screen Mini Template | Other: White ink

Tip #2 ~ Creating a Soft, Random Edge with a Template

”Congratulations” Card ~ By Kylie Kingham

A handy tip to remember when using your templates with any medium is to not follow the straight edges of the template.By keeping your medium spread randomly away from the edge ensures a lovely soft effect for your project.

Tip #4 – Create Colour, Texture, and Pattern with a Template

“Perfect Day” Layout ~ By Jowilna Nolte


Use a Template to create colour, texture, and pattern for a layout – you need nothing else to make a beautiful layout. This can be rewarding, economical and creative.

I used my template to create my flowers with and then arrange them to create a field of shimmering flowers acting as patterned paper.
I mixed texture paste with liquid pearls to create a paste in 3 different colours. The cut out flowers can be arranged as you desire and to suit your needs.

A few rhinestones in the centers of the flowers can add dimension and also dresses them up a bit for variety.

As supporting embellishments I used my Collectables pack for additional flowers, leaves, and words.
A few smaller stamped flowers scattered on the background adds delicate details.

Kaisercraft Products: Havana Nights Collection IT458 Floral Template | IT029 Screen Mini Template | CT897 Collectables | DD970 Cutting Die & Stamp – Tropics
Other: White smooth cardstock, Rhinestones, graphite pencil, texture paste, liquid pearls.

 

Tip #5 – Mixing Paint and Modeling Paste

“Lovely Moment” Layout ~ By Donna Espiritu

One way to add interesting background is by using a template and modeling/texture paste. Want to level it up? Mix the paste with paint, mists or watercolor. Just like what I did with my scrapbook layout.

I also didn’t mix it thoroughly, leaving subtle “white streaks” or “pale shade of pink” to some parts

I also splattered different colors of mists for more texture
