Good Morning how are you all? Rikki here with my Tutorial Tuesday post and this time I am doing something a little different with a Beyond the Page project.
I have recently discovered Polymer Clay and with the new release Beyond the Page items that where shown in this years #creativation18 I was inspired to blend the two and to show you how to use your Kaisercraft Products in a new way!!!!
Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great crafting week. Today I am going to share two cards that I have created using stamps, dies and papers from the Havana Nights Collection by Kaisercraft. Kaisercraft always produce wonderful stamps and dies with each collection and I wanted to share how you can use them along with some simple watercolouring into your cardmaking.
For both cards, I used the white square card pack. The dimensions for the layers I have used are
– navy mat 13cm x 13cm
– TILED (patterned paper) 12.5cm x 12.5cm
– white strip 12.5cm x 5cm
– blue strips 12.5cm x 2cm
For this card, I used four stamps and two dies. All of the colours for the watercolouring were determined by the tiles in the paper.
Simple techniques and maximum impact!
My second card has the same layout as the previous card and also includes similar elements. It uses two dies and two stamps.
As the colour palette is restricted, the elements compliment each other and work together.
Below is video tutorial demonstrating the techniques and the construction of both of these cards.

I splattered a water-diluted white acrylic paint, some brown mists and watercolor to create the background
I first splattered the white acrylic paint followed by the brown watercolor. I let it sit for a few minutes before splattering the brown mist. I repeated this several times until I achieved the look I wanted
I preferred to leave the wooden flourishes bare/as is. I just added some pearls in the center.
The title is several layers of file I cut using an electronic cutting machine. A fine-tipped glue applicator is great to help for easy application of adhesive to small/tiny or intricate details.
To finish off the look, I scattered a mix of rhinestones and pearls all over the layout
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you liked my project using the Documented collection.
It’s Renee here, to share with you, a tutorial on how to create a Mixed Media Vintage Layout using the Documented Collection, including the Typography Template and Clear Stamps.
I start by using the Documented Collection P2462 Lockers (Reverse) as the background.
I want to create layers and texture. So next I am going to use Whipped Spackle and the IT030 Mini Designer Template – Typography along the right side of the page.
I allow this to dry naturally.
Using a dry brush, I add some White Gesso to the centre of the page and then also allow it to dry naturally.
To create the above affect, I use a combination of the IP719 Ink Pad – Black and a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Oxide – Vintage Photo. Using a piece of empty packaging plastic, I add some of the ink and then stamp in the section I would like it to go, focusing more on the areas where the gesso is and around where the photo will be.
Here is a close-up:
Using CS785 Clear Stamp – Typewriter Font and an acrylic block, add some letters in random spots on the block to create an alphabet stamp.
I wanted add another pop of colour, so I use IP723 Ink Pad – Vintage and the Ruler from CS319 Clear Stamp – Documented.
Here is a short video to show you how I created the stamping technique.
This is what it looked like after I completed the stamping.
Here is a close-up:
From here it was a matter of finishing with various Patterned Paper, Collectables and Die Cuts from the Documented Collection.
The Title “Memories Together” came from SS355 Sticker Sheet – Document Collection.
Tearing sheets of Patterned Paper give this layout a vintage feel.
I love this collection and I know you will too.
I hope you were inspired and thank you for stopping by.
