Letters To Santa Mabel Sim NEW Product Tutorials

Santa Claus Says Merry Christmas! by Mabel Sim

September 26, 2017

Hi everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m here to share with you a tutorial with the new Letters to Santa Collection to create a simple Christmas themed frame that is so apt for your Christmas display.

I first start with a 8×8 inches shadow box which I prepped it with an even coat of white gesso. You can also use any white acrylic paint/white opaque paint to replace gesso if you do not own one.

In the meantime, while waiting for the gesso to dry, cut down P2388 Christmas Poinsettia as a base.

I had also fussy cut out my centrepiece for today with P2395 Be Merry. I trimmed out the circle sentiment and mount it on foam tapes to give it some dimension.

Layering is always the key to make your project looks sophisticated. It is actually a very simple technique of arranging your pieces together on different heights. For this time round, I am making use of the rim of the shadowbox to show different layers. I had fussy cut out Mr. Santa from P2389 Dear Santa and stuck it to the bottom corner of my frame.

To balance out the opposite end, I am also adhering pieces from the CT890 Collectables as well as from P2393 Holly & Berries, followed by Christmas streamers from SS347 Sticker Sheet.

Adding pulled cheese cloth will also add some additional interest to the project.

Simply cut down the cheese cloth to tiny bits and tug it gently for the strings to break apart from its usual placement, adhere them to the bottom of your flowers.

Here’s the final look and some close up pictures. :)

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.

Celebrating Christmas in July with Beck Beattie

September 5, 2017

Hi everyone, Beck Beattie here today with ‘Tutorial Tuesday’. I can’t wait to share with you a fun technique incorporated into my project today

I wanted to take you through how I created the beautiful but subtle Poinsetta and Holly background on my page today.

Step 1:  Stamp the images from the Christmas Edition stamp set featuring the Poinsetta and Holly leaves onto the backgound using a white ink pad.  I have stamped in the areas that would see the effect peeking out from behind the script pattern paper I chose to go over the top on my page.

Step 2:  Add clear or white Embossing Powder while the ink is still wet.

Step3:  Remove the excess embossing powder and using a heat gun, heat to melt the embossing powder.

Step 4:  Take a distress ink or oxides in a brown tone and gently add colour over the top of all the areas where the embossing is featured.  Work in a circular motion to softly build up the colour.

Step 5:  Using  a dry old towel rub over the embossed areas to remove the ink colour that will be resisted by the embossed images.  This adds a beautiful soft element to the page.

Step 6:  Add droplets of water to activate the ink and then blot off with some paper towel

To finish your layout, add a torn piece of the ‘Snowcapped’ paper as well as some of the collectibles and elements from the sticker sheet.  Enhance these with some florals and pearl strip as pictured as well as your journalling.

Here are some more pictures to help you get up close to all the details.

 

 

 

 

Here is the full scrapbook page for you to enjoy of a great family time we had when we recently visited Soverign Hill in Ballarat Victoria Australia.  It is a place set back in the gold mining times.  Each year they put on a wonderful Christmas in July celebration.  I just knew this collection would be perfect for my photos captured that day!

Hello!

Today I have a new video tutorial to share. I created card featuring new Kaisercraft collection ‘Christmas Jewel’.

Fir-tree was cut from 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 paper, then I added poinsettia cut from the other paper from 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 paper pad.

Glitter adhered on Kaisercraft glaze. For the final touches I used pearls and rhinestones and flicked randomly white mist.

Here is the process. Have fun!

Christmas Jewel Design Team DIY Donna Espiritu Kaisercraft Tutorials

Peace, Love, Joy banner by Donna Espiritu

August 21, 2017

Hello! Donna here with my first post as a Kaisercraft Design Team member.

I used the Christmas Jewel collection to create a banner perfect as a Christmas decoration.

While I was thinking of what to make for today’s project, I knew I wanted to include one of the beautiful, glittery Kaisercraft printed tapes. So, I came up with the idea to create a rosette out of it.

I thought of using the patterned papers from the paper pad but since I will cover them anyway, I just used regular copy papers.

I didn’t cover the entire strip of paper. 2 lines of the printed tape was enough.

I also added “tails” to each one using a metallic silver thread. I used foam tapes to some of the pieces to add depth.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial if you like to make one for a holiday decor.
