April 20, 2017

 Do you like to add a bit of textured stamping to your crafty projects?  Kaisercraft has just released some lovely new “Textured Stamps” that go perfectly with our two new collections this month, Indigo Skies and High Tea.

Look at all that gorgeous texture!! The new Textured Stamps are called Floral Wallpaper, Paint Strokes, Doily, Brick Wall and Marble.  You can see all these Textured Stamps and the whole range on the Kaisercraft Web Page here.

The Design Team were asked to create a project featuring one of these Textured Stamps.  See if you can spot which stamp they used….

‘Lets Celebrate’ by Collette Mitrega

I chose to use the new ‘Marble’ (CS293) textured stamp. I selected papers from the Indigo Skies 6 1/2″ paper pad and randomly stamped onto the light grey paper with a Versamark ink pad. I then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I did plan to ink the page with ‘Island’ ink pad ( IP726) which would really accentuate the stamp creating a resist effect. But, I really liked how it looked –  not inked ….. so I went with this!

I used the beautiful new ‘Classic Butterfly’ die (DD170),  added some cheesecloth, a cluster of Kaiser Blooms and some splats of white Kaisermist to create a soft wispy card.

I do hope you like it, I do :)

Other: Silver Crackle Texture Paste, Silver Embossing Powder and acetate

The Doily Texture Stamp was stamped onto acetate and then trimmed around the edges. The Doily images were then adhered to the page using Glossy Accents. Stamping onto acetate is a great way to use stamped images on your page if you are not sure where you would like to put them. You can slide the acetate into different positions until you are happy with the look and then stick the image down

Baby Girl Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

Kaisercraft High Tea Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

I made this Album for a friend.  The little girl in the photos is only three months old so there are only photos for the first three months.  The album is designed to hold a photo for every month for the first 12 months.

I stamped CS296 Floral Wallpaper Texture Stamp on the front and back cover of the album.

Kaisercraft High Tea Mini Album by Alicia McNamara

The mother of the baby is taking the monthly photos with the little monthly cards so I didn’t worry about putting a number on the pages as there will be the monthly number in each of the photographs.

For the pages without a photo I just used a blank square cut from PS485 Floral Wallpaper Embossed.

Using a combination of the Paper Pad, Collectables and Sticker Sheet you can make an endless variety of Pocket Pages that co-ordinate easily and beautifully with each other. Both the Sticker Sheet and Collectables have a number of different quotes and words that add a wonderful element to your pocket pages

The Flourish Packs are a wonderful way to add dimension that does not have too much thickness or weight to the pieces. If the embellishments are too heavy or thick you could damage your plastic sleeves over time

Mixed media bird house, with Kirsten Hyde

April 10, 2017

We have spring here in Norway at the moment, and this time I wanted to create a spring project with the High Tea collection. This is an altered wooden house and a candle stick, I had stored for some time. I have used the blue and white papers from the collection, together with collectables and wooden embellishments.

The bird house, has been covered with paper, and then decorated.

I used a stencil with gesso, to create some texture on the roof. Then I added strips of paper and collectables.

At the front of the house, I have added parts of a wooden embellishment, and layered it with a lace circle from the collectables. The candle stick has got a slight colour wash with light blue chalk paint.

Part of the paper has a “ripped wallpaper effect”. I enhanced this effect, with pieces of torn paper.

Storage Storage

Small paper pad storage tutorial, by Kirsten Hyde

March 26, 2017

After crafting for some time, I have collected quite a lot of small paper pads. These has been stacked in my book case for some time, thinking that I really wanted to organise them in another way. The inspiration for the storage boxes came from a close friend of mine Anne Elisabeth Rostad. I wanted a divider in the middle of the boxes to stop the paper pads from slipping, as I remove some of the paper pads from the box.

The box has been covered with wooden papers from the Pawfect collection and simply decorated.

 

Creating the storage box

Cut out the pieces as indicated below, from card board. Also cut a rectangular piece 18cm x 11cm to create the the middle seperator.

 

Glue the pieces together as indicated, using thick gaffa tape.

Add the center piece.

Cover the box with paper and add feet and decorate it as you wish.
