IT460 – Ripples

3 Tips for Using Templates

Today the Design Team have collated 3 helpful Tips for using Templates in your crafting…

Tip #1 – Using Inks

‘Barefoot Welcome’ ~ by Renee Aslette

Firstly, using Inks through your template is a great way to create a small, controlled pattern.  In this layout, Renee has inked her Template to create a background for her clusters of embellishments.

Tip #2 – Using Mists

Secondly, using Mists through your template can create a real “watery” effect.  Alicia has used the Template to decorate the background page in her layout and it looks similar to the ripples in the water at the pool or at the beach.  In comparison to using inks, you have less control over the end result when using Mists.

Other: Misting Spray | Cheesecloth

Tip #3 – Use Modeling Paste and Water Colours

Thirdly, Donna used modeling paste and watercolours to add interesting texture to her card and envelope. It’s a nice way to personalize any cards.

Altered Canvas Beach Shack Mabel Sim Mixed Media

Curious Shall have Adventures Canvas by Mabel Sim

February 22, 2018

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here again to share with you a little mixed media canvas piece I did with Kaisercraft new collection ‘Beach Shack’.

 

I had used texture paste over Kaisercraft 6×6 Stencil ‘IT460’. It was meant to be mimicking wave ripples, but I had made it seemed like its seaweed instead with the layers of colours I had piled on top. I guess its a creative way to extend the use of the products you own?

I was going for a distressed look, hence I had a makeup sponge ready to sponge on the blues and browns from Kaisercraft inkpads. I had even watered it down to use it as watercolour.

To say that the ephemera I used from this collection is useful will be a major understatement. It had made crafting so much easier and faster as no fussy-cutting is required. Hence, BIG LOVE to these die-cuts.

I also added bits and pieces of cheese cloth that was pulled loose to add additional interest to the canvas piece. It does looks like fishing net doesn’t it?

I had stamped and embossed using the stamp in this collection to create my centrepiece. I particularly like this saying as I always believe that curiosity is the deciding factor to push someone further in exploration.

Trio Hello Betty Cards by Jowilna Nolte

For my trio of cards, I explored several creative ways of using this range and all its elements.


From my Paper Pad, I used the embossed paper and inked it using a combination of pink and red ink to match the pink of the roses.

For this card, I used the stamp set. I stamped the sewn circle and then added some watercolour paint to the center and background.
My decorative elements consist out of a cut out doily from the previous card, a butterfly and a sentiment with some rhinestones.

Here I used the ruler paper from the Paper Pad and added stickers to dress it up. A few sewn accents and a wooden flourish complete this card.

Beach Shack Donna Espiritu Scrapbooking layout

“Bliss” Scrapbooking Layout by Donna Espiritu

February 19, 2018

Hello everyone. Donna here sharing a scrapbooking layout using the Beach Shack collection

I also used the Wooden Flourishes and Decorative Dies that coordinates with the collection.

Flourish Pack Beach 35pcs
FL618

Decorative Die – Porthole 
DD808

I don’t have much beach photos or I should rather say, no beach photos at all. But I remembered my dear friend took this photo of me and my family two years ago when we went to Al Wajh, Saudi Arabia. One of the oldest coastal city in north-western Saudi Arabia, situated on the coast of the Red Sea.

I printed two photos and placed it side by side like so. I mounted these with foam tapes for a bit of dimension.

I used one of the specialty papers in the Beach Shack collection as background. Then I brushed a combination of blue, teal, brown and black watercolors. Then magic happens as beautiful patterns in the paper are revealed.

I layered lots of die cuts or collectables underneath and around the two photos. The embellishment is a mixture of paper and wooden flourishes. I also used one paper from the 6 1/2 paper pad that has a wonderful shimmer to it. It’s difficult to capture but the shimmer is beautiful.

I added a thin, brown hemp afterward. I thought the layout needed something to contrast the blueish tone of the page. I placed the brown hemp underneath the photos and the embellishments.

This is quite a simple layout to make and I’m sure you can recreate this as well.

Beach Shack Do not use this category Scrapbooking layout

Beach Bliss

February 16, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing a layout that I have created using papers and embellishments from the Beach Shack Collection. There are so many components to this collection and it makes creating layouts and projects so much fun!

I limited my colour pallet for my embellishments to three tomes which helped me to achieve a cohesive look. I drew my inspiration from my photo and my background paper.

I used the rope corner decorative die and die cut it using a scrap piece of chipboard. I altered it by first coating it with a layer of gesso. Once dry, I used ink daubers and the Kaisercraft ink pads to create my embellishment. I used saffron, vintage and bark.

To create my textured background, I first applied a coat of clear gesso to my background paper. Once dry I then applied some distress spray to areas around my elements. I also used some water and a paint paintbrush to spread the colour around. I stamped my texture stamps in random spots on this blue section and then I used the ripple stencil.

Below my photo I have some more decorative embellishments. I altered some of the wooden flourishes that we released with this collection. I applied a coat of gesso to each and then used a sponge dauber and the Kaisercraft ink pads to apply colout to each element. I also inked the edges of each with the bark ink pad to add extra definition. I sprayed a piece of cheese cloth with a distress spray and added this to my cluster to add some texture.
