Card Making Product Highlight

Alphabet Clear Stamps Week: Cards

July 13, 2011

Hello everyone!

Hopefully you are enjoying the weeks posts on Kaisercraft’s Alphabet Clear Stamps!

Today we have Michelle Frisby, Svetlana Austin and Kirsty Piper showing us all how you can utilize the stamps on cards.


Michelle Frisby:
The internet has definitely made the big wide world, a whole lot smaller in so many ways.  We now have the opportunity to ‘google’ so many things and one thing that I ‘googled’ just recently was in relation to language translations.

I made a card for a Swedish friend to say hello or in her native tongue … ‘hej’ … you know who I’m waving at!

“Hej” Card By Michelle Frisby

Materials used :
CS783 cartoon font stamps, P640 Chanteuse Collection – Vivo and Eco, paper blooms – F627 Coconut, F640 Fairy Floss, EM923 paper tags and shapes – white, SB787 hot pink pearls

Extras : cardstock, embroidery thread, netting/mesh, peg, twine

I’ve got another friend that is making her way over to the other side of the world later this year to visit Paris – ‘bonjour’ my friend.

“Bonjour” Card By Michelle Frisby

Materials used :
CS783 cartoon font stamps, P640 Chanteuse Collection – Vivo and Eco, paper blooms – F627 Coconut, F640 Fairy Floss, EM923 paper tags and shapes – white, SB787 hot pink pearls

Extras : cardstock, embroidery thread, netting/mesh, peg, twine

So I thought that I would use my new clear stamps and stamp the appropriate ‘hello’ and say hi to both of them.

Opening the mail and finding a handmade card definitely brings a smile to my face.  Whether that be a birthday card, a Christmas card or a card to just say hello …

So wherever you live in the world, be it morning, noon or night … a big hello from all of us on the 2011-2012 Kaisercraft Design Team …


Svetlana Austin:

“You are Very Special” Card By Svetlana Austin

Materials used:
Blae & Ivy Collection – Valley (P 699), Sky (P 698), Sticker Sheet (SS 106);
Clear Stamps Alpha – Vintage Script (CS 782), Typewriter Font (CS 785);
Lace – White (EM 926); Mini Crochet Doily Flower – Nursery (EM 953); Pearl Strip – Chocolate (PL 504); Pearl Brad – Soft Blue (EM 933).
Other products:
Cardstock, glimmer-mist, ink, pen.

To make the stamped writing on the card look a little bit softer, first I inked the stamps with brown ink and only then with black. I also added some doodling with golden pen to the lives on the sticker, which gave it some contrast but preserved the overall softness of the card.


Kirsty Piper:

Flying ducks

June 4, 2011

Hi there, it´s Monika here to share a beyond the page project with you.

We recently re decorated our daughters room and these cute Flying ducks are now flying over her big mirror.


This is how her room looks like now.

When I first saw the ducks I immediately thought about that fairy tale story about the 12 princes that was turned in to 12 ducks by the new step mother. Now that these ducks are flying over Isabels mirror, they remind me of that story even more and I keep wondering where they are headed.


A close up of the lagest duck.

The medium one

The small one


Items used: P641 Eco, P638 Staccato, Paper blooms F640 Fair Floss, Rhinestone flourishes Classic – Champagne RS460

A little more Chanteuse…..

May 1, 2011


Trudi here finishing off the week with another layout share created from the gorgeous Chanteuse Collection.

This layout is dedicated to my littlest girl.  As her mother I think that she is ‘one of a kind’ but then I think that most mother’s would think the same about their children.

My littlest girl thinks she is very clever cause she can put her leg over her head.  I have to say that it has been a very, very long time since I was able to do the same trick LOL!!

I had lots of fun once again with my trusty scissors and have hand cut lots of elements from the patterned papers ‘Staccato’ and ‘Soprano’.  I also sneaked a little edge of the Rondo die cut in as well.

Layout ‘One of a kind’ by Trudi Harrison.  Materials- Chanteuse Collection: Patterned Papers -P637 Con Brio, P638 Staccato, P640 Vivo, P641 Eco, P642 Soprano, P653 Marcato,  PS142 Rondo Specialty Die Cut & Foil, DC337 Die Cut Elements, Rhinestone Flourish, Bubblegum Flutterby – Light Pink.

Kerryn, Kirsty and I hope that you have enjoyed our projects that we have shared with you this week.

I’ll be back tomorrow with Nerrida to kick off the week with some Chapter One inspiration.

….a pocket full of posy’s!

Have you seen the gorgeous new Posy’s that co-ordinate perfectly with  the Chanteuse collection?

I have to admit I fell head over heels in love with them when I first saw them…

I  also really love the trend at the moment that seems to be popping up in papercraft land  of using silhouettes in different projects.

As a happy co-incidence, one of my favourite views of my beautiful babies is their profiles. I love looking at their little buttons noses and little baby chins. I know they will change before my eyes, so I thought I would combine the silhouette trend and my middle baby’s profile to create this project.

Kirsty Piper: Silhouette Ornate Frame: Ornate Frame (SB2102), Chanteuse Collection: Vivo(P640), Staccato(P638), Eco(P641) Posies (EM960). Kaisercraft Other: Paint- Antique White(KC002), Black(KC031) Paper Blooms Cranberry(F638)

If you haven’t gotten yourself some of these gorgeous ‘Posies’ from this new collection, go grab some today! I love how they add just the right unusual finishing touch to a layout, card or Off the Page project!
