Foam Flower Tutorial with Bonus Layout.

November 13, 2018

Art Foam Flowers

We create for many different reasons,  sometimes for pleasure or perhaps to capture a precious memory or

occasion that has happened in our lives.

Finding the right paper or embellishment can help us to achieve the reason why we have started to create in the first place.

Creating flowers adds an element of beauty to layouts.  They can be used in both masculine and feminine layouts.

By making them feel ‘vintage’ you certainly can  see how effectively they  compliment photos and papers.

Varying the size of the flowers also adds interest to layouts .

To learn how to make these flowers, watch the tutorial below.

Art Foam Flower Tutorial

July 17, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. I have been playing with some art foam, and I came up with some                         different ways of creating flowers using one die.

These three flowers were created using only two petals. But by making one alteration, three different flowers were created.

The above flower uses the largest petal from the die, die cut three times. It was shaped by scrunching the tops and                              embellished by using stamens in the centre.

The final two flowers use the smaller petal from the die. Their construction is the same except for the shaping of the petals.                    Another variation of flower from DIY Flora Gerbera die.

Below is a video tutorial explaining how each of these flowers was made.

 

Once you have created these beautiful flowers, it’s always wonderful to incorporate them into your projects.

4 Helpful Tips for Beginner Paper Crafters

May 30, 2018

We all began this amazing Paper Crafting Hobby at some stage in our lives.  When you are starting from the beginning it is often helpful to gather as many tips as possible to help you create the projects you wish to make.  Today we are dedicating this post to “Tips for Beginners” and the Design Team have collated Four Helpful Tips for those crafters who are just beginning their crafty journey…or anyone else who enjoys learning a helpful tip along the way…

Tips for Beginners #1 – Use a Sketch

“Shine Like the Stars Card” by Cathy McGrath

 

Sometimes to kick start creativity, a sketch can be a great starting place. It can help to plan a design or when you are at a loss for design inspiration, provide the ‘mojo’ you may need in order to move forward. You can follow the sketch as it is, or rotate it or even replace some of the suggested shapes with ones that best suit your project.

Below is a sketch based on the card that I have created using papers from the Stargazer Paper Pad. This sketch could easily be adapted and be used to create a design for a square card. As you can see, some of the elements have been adapted to suit my project.

Other: Corner Rounder| Sequins

Tips for Beginners #2 – Create a Focal Point

“To the Moon and Back “layout by Kylie Kingham.

Beginner Tip: Hope to use your photo as a focal point.- Here in my layout you can see I have used three photos, all of the same image. I have printed two slightly smaller and used them more as a background or ‘accessory’to my layout.Even though all 3 images are the same your eye is drawn to the centre image for a few reasons. For one it is obviously larger, but I have also backed my photo with some darker paper and have attached it to my layout with foam dots, giving it that ‘framed’and raised appearance. Even though there is still plenty going on in and around my main photo, that is still the point my eyes are drawn to.

Other: Seguins, Stitching, Hot Glue.

Tips for Beginners #3 – Make the Most of Your Crafty Products

5 Cards Using 1 Embossing Folder – by Renee Aslette

Today, my tip for beginners is to get the most out of the things that you have.

I used Embossing Folder – Constellation EF283. In the video below, I will show you 5 ways I used the same embossing folder.  I then created 5 cards, in a set, using these embossed pieces and the Stargazer Collection.

Tip 1 – Embossing with Cardstock

This is the way most of us use an embossing folder.  Insert the cardstock into the Embossing Folder and put it through the DIYCuts Machine.

Tip 2 – Inking with the Folder on Side 1

For this I used the raised side of the embossing folder.  I then inked that side using Ink Pad – Lagoon IP727.  Then I added the cardstock and ran it through the DIYCuts Machine.

Tip 3 – Embossing Folder & Kaisercraft Art Foam

For this technique I wanted to show how versatile a piece of art foam is.  Not only can it be used for flowers, but you can use it in an embossing folder, and even die cut it.

Place the art foam piece in the embossing folder and run it through the DIYCuts Machine.

Tip 4 – Inking on the Embossing Folder on Side 2

Ink directly onto the Embossing Folder on the Reverse side.  I used Ink Pad – Black IP719. It creates a reverse pattern.

Tips 5 – Using a Brayer and Kaisercraft Paint

This one was a bit of an experiment for myself too.  I have always wanted to try it.  The thing is, if you try different things, sometimes they come off, and other times they turn out great!!!

I added Kaisercraft – Coastal Blue KC020 onto the brayer with a paint brush.  Then roll directly onto the embossing folder.  I did both sides for this one to see which result I liked the best.

Here is the video tutorial to show you how I created each card.

Kaisercraft Products: Stargazer Collection: SS363 Sticker Sheet, PP1044 Paper Pad, CT937 Collectables, EF283 Embossing Folder – Constellation, CD650 Cardstock – Smooth – White, CD511 Card Pack C6 – White, IP727 Ink Pad – Lagoon, SF901 Art Foam – White, IP719 Ink Pad – Black, KC020 Paint – Coastal Blue, DD001 DIYCuts Machine.

Other: Brayer.

Tips for Beginners #4 – Colour Matching

“Live for the Moments You Cant Put into words” Layout by Alicia McNamara

Kaisercraft Tips for Beginners - Colour Matching By Alicia McNamara

My Tip for beginners just starting out in Papercrafting is to colour match your photograph to the papers you are working with.  In this example I have taken the blue and white tones from the colours in the the photograph and tried to choose papers and flowers that match those colours.  Its a very simple technique but I feel it is crucial to making a layout easy to look at.  If your photograph doesn’t match the colours of your papers you can always edit the photo to black and white  or sepia colours.
