Tuesday Tutorial with Belinda Spencer

November 17, 2015
KC Nov - SA - Explore 1

Hi papercrafters!!

Belinda here today to share a tutorial with you on how I complete a typical ‘Belinda’ layout as well as lots of projects featuring the stunning NEW collections Provincial and Sail Away.

I absolutely love both of these collections. Provincial with it’s beautifully shabby, rustic style patterns perfectly compliment my home which is a lovely old farm house. But there are also some beautiful soft blues and florals that are just perfect for baby layouts which is what I have created for my tutorial.


So let’s get started!

“Hello Baby” Layout

Today I am going to show you, step by step, how I create that watercolour effect on my background as well as how I layer up my layouts.

Step 1:

– Remove the strip from the “Mail” patterned paper.

– Cut a piece of Coconut cardstock 29.5cm x 29.5cm.

– Layer the cardstock over the patterned paper and stick down ensuring that the smooth side is facing up.

Step 2:

– Apply the Lattice Texture Stamp (or any texture stamp that you have in your stash) to the cardstock using embossing ink.

– Heat set with either clear or white embossing powder. (I find white embossing powder works best if you are like me and have dirty stamps. The white should hide any transfer of ink whereas the ink may show up with clear embossing powder.)

– Repeat these steps until you have as many blocks of pattern as you require.

Step 3:

– Spritz on some Denim Kaisermist.

– Quickly add a liberal amount of water from a water mister bottle.

– Scrunch up some paper towel and remove some of the excess water and colour.

– Flick some water droplets over the top with your fingertips.

– Allow to dry somewhat.

– Repeat this process using the Charcoal Kaisermist.

– Set aside to dry off completely or speed things up with a heat gun.

Step 4:

– Die-cut a flourish from Coconut cardstock using the Swirl Flourish Decorative Die.

– Add to the layout.

KC Tues Tut - Step 4

Step 5:

– Fussy cut a flower cluster from the Hampton patterned paper.

– Stick down on the layout.

KC Tues Tut - Step 5

Step 6:

– Matte your photo on Coconut cardstock.

– Add Foam Tape to the back of the cardstock in the centre only and add to your layout.

*NOTE: My photo is a non-standard size. You can add whatever size photo you like.*

KC Tues Tut - Step 6

Step 7:

– Choose two patterned papers from the Paper Pad and die-cut two tags from the Tag Shapes Decorative Die set.

– Die-cut a third tag from Coconut cardstock.

– Cut off the tops of the tags and staple the ends together.

– Stick down under your photo.

KC Tues Tut - Step 7a

KC Tues Tut - Step 7b

Step 8:

– Die-cut your title from Coconut cardstock as well as the same patterned paper that you used for your tags.

– To give the “hello” more impact, I glued it onto Coconut cardstock and then fussy cut with a slight border.

– Stick down on your layout.

KC Tues Tut - Step 8

Step 9:

– Add some stickers and die-cuts to further embellish and frame your photo.

KC Tues Tut - Step 9

Step 10:

– Complete your layout with the addition of some Paper Blooms and journaling strips.

I hope you have enjoyed my first tutorial for Kaisercraft and that I have inspired you to try to create your own watercolour effect. Kaisermists are absolutely perfect for this technique as they react so well with the water. You may find that the addition of the mists and water warps your layout somewhat. Being slightly warped myself, I have learnt to live with the ‘warp factor’. You can try attaching your layout to a sturdier base such as heavy cardstock or chipboard if you prefer a flatter looking layout. Otherwise if you are storing in an album, this may help to flatten it.

“Love” Layout

To keep things fair, I thought I had better create a baby Hayley layout also! This time using the whole sheet of that stunning floral paper.

‘Happy Mail’ Mail Holder

Hmmm. What to do with all that mail I collect from the general store/post office everyday?? I know! A Kaisercraft Mail Holder decorated with Provincial. I told you I had a rustic old farmhouse so this matches perfectly! :-)

There! With just a few stickers and collectables from the collection as well as some die-cut words I have something pretty to hide all of those nasty window faced envelopes behind.

Now onto my Sail Away projects.

Sail away

I have to say as much as I love the Provincial Collection, this one is my favourite this month. I just love the ocean and anything beach related is an absolute winner with me.

I have focussed mainly on the shades of blue papers as well as the woodgrain to create three layouts to share with you. There are also some stunning red images and papers in the collection as well as awesome collectables.

For my first layout I wanted to create the look of the waves breaking on the beach using the papers.

‘Explore’ Layout

KC Nov - SA - Explore 1

Simply using torn strips of patterned paper layered from dark to light, I have created the look of waves. It is so easy to create this look with all of the papers in different shades of blue.

Here’s a closer look.

KC Nov - SA - Explore 2

I have added some sweet collectables in amongst the waves as well as the stamped and fussy cut compass and some sequins from my stash.

Other: sequins.

‘Hello Adventure’ Layout

KC Nov - SA - Hello Adventure 1

It’s no secret that I have a ‘flat layout phobia’. Not that there is anything wrong with a flat layout. It’s just that I love layers and dimension and this layout just goes to prove that. It is super layered and dimensional using lots of Kaisercraft Foam Tape between the layers. I have used the fabulous Compass Specialty Paper on this one too.

Check out all of those layers!

‘Beach Beauty’ Layout

KC Nov - SA - Beach Beauty 1

I have a ‘thing’ for wood grain paper so I had to use the stunning Lighthouse paper as the background for this layout. I added some more texture to it by swiping some texture paste over the wave shapes on the Nautical Quarters Template.

KC Nov - SA - Beach Beauty 2

KC Nov - SA - Beach Beauty 3

I used the Anchors Embossing Folder to emboss some vellum to add to the layers below my photo and that cute little anchor was left over from my last layout from when I die-cut the Anchor Cardfront Decorative Die.

Kaisercraft materials: P1983 Nautical | P1984 Lighthouse | P1988 Nautical | SS300 Sticker Sheet | CT844 Collectables | CS244 Clear Stamps | PP985 Paper Pad | EF231 Embossing Folder Anchors | DD730 Card Creations Anchor Cardfront C6 | T627 12×12 Template Nautical Quarters | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | IP719 Ink Pad Black | IP724 Ink Pad Bark | KM101 Kaisermist Charcoal | T303 Foam Tape | DD701 Decorative Die 6×4″ & 3×4″ Rectangles | DD704 Decorative Die Hello.

Other: texture paste | vellum | sequins | Posca Pen.

Well that is all from me today. I hope I have inspired you to create some layers and dimension on your layouts with some stunning Kaisercraft product. Thanks so much for checking out my November creations.

Card Making Kaisercraft Tuesday Tips Tutorials

Tuesday Tip – Clear stamps

April 22, 2014

Hi there everyone,  Adriana here today,  with today’s Tuesday tip at Kaisercraft. Every paper collection that Kaisercraft produce have a set of clear stamps to compliment the papers. They are so simple and easy to use.

Today I will show you how you can use them to simply create a unique paper design for a card. But you are not limited to cards, you can create background designs for your layout or use them on your Project Life cards. The set of stamps I have chosen is the “Honey Chai” set which has been released this month. I have used all the 4 stamps of this clear stamp set to create my card.

CS169 Honey Chai Clear Stamp

French_clear stamp CS169

I do love the cute birds and the details in the leaves and flowers.

 Here is my finished card

1. Mount your stamp on clear block and stamp around the edges of your card stock, with the wreath style stamp. Making sure that you only stamp the edges.

2. Stamp the 3 birds on a twig stamp on card stock.

3. Stamp 3 butterflies on cardstock.

4. Colour inside all images with assorted colours of Kaiser Fusion.

5. Stamp the large rose on edges of other cardstock. Also, cut out the 3 butterflies with scissors.

 6. Place foam tape underneath a Honey Chai Collectable word phrase, adhere on to bottom of card. Adhere card on large folded card. Place foam dots under butterflies and attach to card front.

Your finished card will always be a unique one of kind card, using the stamping clear set from Kaisercraft.

Hope you find time to create something with Clear Stamps this week, Cheers Adriana :)

Tuesday Tip – Clear stamps on Wooden Embellishments

May 28, 2013

Hi Everyone!  It’s time for a Tuesday Tip, today we have Adriana Bolzon sharing a few tip ideas using Kaisercraft Clear stamps with Kaisercraft Wooden embellishments”

Adriana says: “Kaisercraft have a great range of Clear stamps, they are so versatile and easy to use on any project.  Stamping them on cards and layouts is the most popular way to use them but you can also use them on the Kaisercraft Wooden embellishments to change the look, color and appearance of them.

On my “Summer Breeze” layout that I have created this month, I changed the look of the wooden butterflies. Firstly I painted the butterflies with white paint and let them dry. I then stamped the Kaisercraft Laugh Clear Stamp CS893 with a Burgundy Ink pad and gently inked the edges of the wooden butterflies. The words “live, laugh & love” are stamped all over the butterflies.

CS893 “Laugh, Love, Life” clear stamp & Butterflies FL377

 Here are some other examples using the music clear stamp from Porcelain Rose clear stamp on a Wooden Cloud FL393 and Wooden Key FL306

 CS102 “Porcelain Rose” clear stamp set & CS864 “75 Cents” clear stamp

  I stamped the bottle image on to the little Bottle Wooden Embellishments FL503, this adds more details to the little bottles.

 Hope this gives you some ideas of different ways to decorate Wooden embellishments and using Kaisercraft clear stamps.

Happy crafting everyone <3
