Anthology Jowilna Nolte Kaiser Mists Mixed Media step by step

Butterfly Sampler Box with Mixed Media Effects by Jowilna Nolte

June 26, 2018

Hello everyone, Jowilna on the blog today with another Technique Tuesday showing you how I created this fun anthology butterfly sampler box.
This range is perfect for creating memory boxes, but I wanted to make something very specific – the kind of thing you will find in the office of a professor.

step 1 – Trim patterned paper to fit inside the wooden tray. I added a piece to the bottom to fit into the length.
Add stenciling detail to the bottom edge using texture paste and leave to dry. Add sewing around the edge.

step 2 – Cut a piece of polystyrene to fit into the bottom of the wooden tray and secure using double sided tape.

Step 3 – Use Kaisercraft mists in olive and coffee and mist the entire piece of paper.
Mix the two colours to create a leather look effect on the paper. Leave to dry or dry with a heat gun.

Step 4 – Add double sided tape to the back of the paper piece and then adhere it to the polystyrene inside the tray.

Step 5 – Cut out butterflies from patterned paper as well as foliage. Ink the edges to hide any cutting lines.

Step 6 – Adhere sticker sentiment to filmstrip sticker and trim to size. Use your scissors to distress the edges.

Step 7 – Adhere the butterflies as well as the foliage and sentiment. Layer two butterflies on top of each other using foam tape.

Step 8 – Use decorative pins to add some interest to the butterflies. Cut them shorter and then pin them through the butterflies.
Print fig. sentiments and adhere below each butterfly.

I love how the mists just add so much shimmer and warmth to the patterned paper and project.
So easy to create a butterfly sampler box perfect for the aspiring lepidopterist {a person who studies or collects moths and butterflies}

Until next time – why not try and make your own sampler box using this easy to re-create leather look using texture and inks. Then add some of your favourite images and sentiments
to create a fun home decor project for your office or studio.

Little Things Wandering Ivy Layout Tutorial by Jowilna Nolte

December 12, 2017

Hi everyone – today I am sharing this double page layout created using the gorgeous Wandering Ivy Collection. For the tutorial portion I am sharing how I created
some interest on my background as well as using my die-cuts in a cheat way to add color instantly without worrying to tear or damage the fine delicate cuts made.
Lets take a look how I created my elements…
On my background I created some layered filled in circles with hand sewn details around the edges. So quick and easy to achieve but with a stunning end result.


For my flower cluster I wanted to use the beautiful Ivy die-cut. But the part I hate most about die-cuts is adding color to them once they are cut.
Especially with those delicate pieces that tear and break so easily So here’s my cheat way of adding color and cutting them without any fuss.

Step 1 – Turn the die-cut over and ink the flat side (back) of your die using 2 or more shades of green ink.
Lightly tap the ink onto the surface to ink it.

Step 2 – Carefully lift the die and place it onto your cardstock with the inked side on white cardstock.
Feed it through your die-cutting machine with your rubber matt in place. This will transfer the ink onto the cardstock and created a light embossed image as well.

Step 3 – Remove the cardstock from your machine. Lift the die-cut to reveal the now debossed and color transferred image.

Step 4 – Leave the ink to dry or heat set using a heat gun. Flip your cardstock over and position the die on the raised area of the image visible at the back.
Place the die and keep it in place with some washi tape. Now cut the image from the back.

TIP: You have to cut from the back in order to line the die up correctly with the colored image on the front.

Now cut the shape by putting it through your die-cutting machine. Remove the cut and coloured image.

And that’s how I quickly and easily add color to my image and then cut it without any fuss.

How to create the stitches circles on your background.

Step 5 – Use an anywhere circle cutter. I used my old fashioned one that I can adjust to any size circle.
Cut several circles out of your background and in different sizes.

Step 6 – Cut scraps of your patterned paper slightly bigger than your circles.

Step 7 – Back the cutout circles with the patterned paper pieces by adhering the pieces to the back of your cut out circles.
Use your paper piercer to make holes inside and even outside of the circles. Sew the circles using embroidery thread for a beautiful dimensional effect.

What have you created with the beautiful Wandering Ivy Collection? The sweetest and most beautiful collection…until the next one.
Happy scrapping Jowilna

Card Making Christmas Christmas Edition Design Team Jowilna Nolte Kaisercraft Scrapbooking layout step by step Tuesday Tutorials Tutorials

Christmas Edition with a pop of colour by Jowilna Nolte

September 12, 2017

 Hi everyone, Jowilna here with my Tuesday Tutorial showing you how easy it is to add a pop of color to paper and elements in a few easy steps.
I love the Christmas Edition Range of papers, but somehow Christmas doesn’t seem right without a bit of color. So I naturally wanted to add
some color to the range and found a really easy way to achieve it.
Sharpie markers were used to add color to the background paper used on my card, as well as some of the collectables.
The elements and paper took the color really well
and made for a striking finishing product – showing just how versatile this range really is.


The secret to coloring is to layer different colors so that you can add highlights and shadows and achieve beautiful shading.
How to color your elements
step 1 – Start by coloring your poinsettia leaves in orange.

step 2 – Next add some bright pink shading down the middle of the leaves and any dark areas printed on the image.

step 3 – Finish off the leaves with a layer of red. The orange and pink combined with the red makes for a beautiful rich color perfect for Christmas.

step 4 – Trim the background paper to size to fit onto the front of your card.

TIP:  Select three shades of green markers to add color to your leaves. Start with the lightest green working to the darkest green and then blend over everything with the light green again for a seamless effect.

step 5 – Color some holly leaves from your collectables pack.

step 6 – Position your elements together and start layering them onto each other.

step 7 – Use mounting foam dots to adhere some of the elements to add dimension to your card.
Layer the elements underneath each other for interest.

step 8 – Apply glimmer paste through the star stencil.

Add embellishments like buttons, rhinestones and ink splats. Use dimensional glaze to highlight some of the berries on the elements from the collectables pack.

I can’t wait to explore more ways of adding color to this range using different mediums and techniques.
The blank slate means the perfect opportunity for creativity and experiments.
