Finishing off with a touch of sweetness

June 30, 2011


Trudi here finishing and ‘officially’ signing off  with my last Kaisercraft Contributing Design Team creations.

First up, I have layout to share that I have created with the very pretty Pink Gelato collection.

The colours are so soft and dreamy.  The floral and bike elements of the collection are just beautiful and I have utilised both of these elements in my following layout.

I have a particular fondness for the 12 x 12 Sticker Sheets and have utilised one of the large floral elements as a border – it also provides a lovely soft ‘backdrop’ for my photo.

I have embellished with hand cut elements floral blooms from ‘Watermelon’ and the super sweet bike from ‘Vanilla’ patterned papers.  For some extra ‘sweetness’ ,  I have added some pretty paper blooms and ribbon.

‘You are my most favourite memory’

I have also altered a frame by adding some Pink Gelato sweetness.

I have used stickers from the 12 x 12 sheet and die cuts from the Paper Pad to alter the bottom of the frame. The flowers and banners have been cut and created with papers from the pad and the bike has been cut from the ‘Pineapple’ paper.

Card Making

Card Inspiration

June 29, 2011


Kerryn,  Lesley and Trudi here to share some cards that we have created with both the Velvet Ensemble and Pink Gelato collections.

First up Kerryn with a card created with Velvet Ensemble

Kerryn : I needed a card for my Pa’s birthday last month so I went searching for ideas.  I came across accordian cards and I thought it would be good to have a go.  They are easy to make and with all the fabulous little diecuts and chipboard that you get with Velvet Ensemble I was able to add lots of fun to this card.

“Accordian card” by Kerryn Lawson

Products Used : Velvet Ensemble paper pad (PP844), Velvet Ensemble Printed chipboard (CB128), Wood flourishes – swirls (SB729), Mini alpha stickers – Chocolate & White (MA503), Alpha chipboard – Alpha # 1 (CB107).

Other products used : distress ink, cardstock

Trudi has created a card with the Pink Gelato Collection

Something generic and girly…

Created from some Papers from the Paper Pad,  elements from ‘Pineapple patterned paper and of course the so very sweet bike chipboard piece.

Card by Trudi Harrison.  Materials Used:  Pink Gelato P685 Pineapple, PP845 Paper Pad, CB129 Printed Chipboard.  Other: Cardstock

Lesley has also created a card using Pink Gelato

Lesley: This is my last post for my Design Team term. I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed myself and the opportunity to create with the gorgeous kaisercraft product. Thank you Kaisercraft, the design team girls who were all awesome and thank you to all of you who have left me comments and supported me over the last 12 months.

I have created a card using the Pink Gelato range. I have created a frame for the front and used muslin behind it. I have stamped on to transparency and cut out the image. I have attached the image using staples – strategically placed where the spokes on the wheels are! The quotes on the sticker sheets are perfect for cards.

Any day is a good day for Gelato!

June 29, 2011

Hello. Lesley and Kerryn here today and we are here to share a little bit of Pink Gelato with you all.

Kerryn : At first glance all I saw with Pink Gelato were pastels.  To be honest, I don’t really work with pastels alot.  What surprised me though is that with the addition of just a little touch of colour, Pink Gelato came to life!  I added a nice bright green in my alphabet and a bit of doily trim for that pop of colour that worked perfectly with the pastels of Pink Gelato.

“Let’s dance baby” by Kerryn Lawson

Amanda loves visitng the baby next door. To be honest though I am not sure who is more smitten Amanda or Tyler. With this layout I wanted to emphasise the blues in this gorgeous collection. I have also embossed the chipboard, sanded and then inked it. The letters have been coloured using a cotton bud and distress ink. To ink the edges of small things like letters I use a black pen (instead of a stamp pad) to run the edges of the letters around. Easier to get into those small corners.

Keeping time with Gelato.

June 27, 2011

Hi, it’s Kerryn here today.  My year with Kaisercraft is coming to a close (sob) and I have had a project in mind for quite some time but I have not been able to make it happen yet.  Seeing as this is my final month I realised that I had to make it happen this time around.

I store all my ribbons in jars but some time ago I put them on jump rings with each ribbon attached to a bit of punched paper.  When the Cuckoo clock was released I had visions of turning it into ribbon storage.

Finally I have been able to make my vision come to life.

The beautiful soft colours of Pink Gelato were perfectly matched with my favourite distress inks and paint.  I had to include a healthy amount of flowers and of course some butterflies too.

Lots and lots of flowers were added to the fence.  Smatterings of pearls were placed amongst the flowers for some hidden gems of colour.

I used a bird cage behind the window to create a grill effect.

A little bit of gold kindyglitz brought my lamp to life!

A visit to the hardware store for some cup hooks and my ribbon storage was ready to go.

I am so happy that this project is complete and as well as a clock close by to my scrapping area, now I also have some pretty cool ribbon storage as well.
