Christmas Decorative Dies Glitter Cardstock Tags

Christmas sparkle with Glisten

October 4, 2016

Hi everyone, Sonia here with the fabulous ‘Glisten’ collection. If you love a bit of bling like I do, then this is a collection you are going to love! It has both silver and gold highlights with touches of glitter and foil which is ready for your Christmas creating! I couldn’t wait to start playing with Glisten and some Glitter Cardstock – a perfect match!

I opted to use the silver highlights of the Glisten Collection along with some of my favourite Kaisercraft dies.


Christmas tags

Kaisercraft products used: P2172 ‘Lustrous’ | P2173 ‘Luminous’ | P2175 ‘Shimmering’ | SS322 Glisten Sticker Sheet | CT865 Glisten Collectables | GC102 Glitter Cardstock Steel | GC103 Glitter Cardstock Platinum | GC104 Glitter Cardstock Crystal | DD941 Stitched Circles Die & Stamp set | DD518 Nesting Tags Die | DD326 Reindeer Die | DD310 Ornate Frame Die | SB700 Silver Rhinestones | TM803 Silver Metal Bookplates | LD81059 Natural Twine

The Glitter Cardstock adds a gorgeous sparkle to your dies! I always use a metal cutting plate under my dies to ensure a nice, clean cut – particularly with some of the more detailed dies

The title of my tag was from the Glisten Sticker Sheet. It was too long for the tag so I cut it in half. Backing the stickers with foam tape adds a wonderful dimension to your piece:

The Reindeer Die (DD326) is one of my favourite dies – who couldn’t love this gorgeous and elegant reindeer?!! I used the ‘Luminous’ paper (P2173) as it has wonderful shades of silver on it from the bauble images that create an interesting illusion of texture on the Reindeer:

The Metal Bookplates are a great way to frame stickers so they add extra dimension to your project”

I have used a few Decorative Dies on my tags and the possibilities of these wonderful tools are endless! It means you can have your shape in any colour or pattern of paper (or cardstock) you wish. As I mentioned before I always use a metal cutting plate underneath my dies when I cut to help get a clean cut. The plates also come in handy if you wish to add a little extra detail to your die cut paper.

I absolutely adore the Detailed Feather Die (DD157)


The Die cuts out the beautiful and detailed outer edge but the lighter blue pieces are not cut when put through your die cutting machine. I really wanted this detail as the solid feather was a little heavy for my tag so, after running the die through my machine, I carefully removed the cut cardstock with the metal die on my metal cutting plate and placed on my desk. Be careful not to move the die and paper / cardstock!

Using a craft knife, carefully cut out the details you wish to keep using the die as a guide. Keeping the die on the metal cutting plate helps with a cleaner cut (it’s not so great for your blade though!)

Once you’ve made all the cuts you need, remove the metal die and you’ll have the extra detail you were looking for!

You can see how delicate the feather looks behind the Ornate Frame:

I hope this has you ready to get into your Christmas crafting – after all, Christmas is only 12 Sundays away!

My Final Fling and a Fond Farewell with Belinda Spencer

July 14, 2016

Hello Kaisercrafters!!

Belinda here with you today to share my projects using the fabulous July collections.

So much to love with the collections this month (as every month!). So let’s get started with the Bon Apetit collection.


I love cooking and baking so the Bon Apetit was the perfect range to use with photos of my cooking.

‘Enjoy’ Layout by Belinda Spencer

KC July - BA - Enjoy 1

The colours in this range suited this photo of my ‘carrot in the ground’ cupcakes perfectly. I baked these cupcakes for a cake stall at my kids’ school and they were a big hit! I wished there was one left over for me!!

I think the Floured patterned paper that I have used for the background is my favourite in the collection and pretty accurately depicts how my kitchen looks after I have finished cooking up a storm. :-)

KC July - BA - Enjoy 4

How lovely are the ‘recipe cards’ behind my photo? I have used them to frame my photo and it was a stroke of luck that the colour perfectly complimented my cake tin.

Kaisercraft materials: P2121 Floured | PP1000 Paper Pad | SS316 Sticker Sheet | CT859 Collectables | FL577 Wooden Flourish Pack Cooking | EM432 Recipe Cards | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | CD137 Kaisercard Watermelon | IP719 Ink Pad Black | IP724 Ink Pad Bark | IP734 Ink Pad Red.

Other: kitchen twine | paper clip.

‘Eat’ Layout by Belinda Spencer

KC July - BA - Eat 1

There’s nothing better than baking your own bread at home and enjoying the aroma wafting from the breadmaker. I used a photo of one of my own loaves nestled amongst the bread loaves on the ‘Recipe’ patterned paper as the background.

KC July - BA - Eat 2

How cute are the little wooden flourishes from the Cooking pack?? Adorable, right? I have added a sweet wooden spoon, whisk and rolling pin to my layout as well as coiled some actual kitchen twine across the page.

KC July - BA - Eat 4

Kaisercraft materials: P2119 Fresh | P2120 Cool | P2122 Recipe | PP1000 Paper Pad | SS316 Sticker Sheet | CT859 Collectables | FL577 Wooden Flourish Pack Cooking | CS267 Clear Stamp | DD383 Decorative Die Large Tabs | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | ST909 Epoxy Stickers Natural.

Other: kitchen twine | staples | ink.

Next up are my projects using the oh so beautiful Mademoiselle Collection.


I have taken advantage of the gorgeous floral papers and butterfly images to create two layouts featuring photos of my darling daughter.

‘Young, Wild & Free’ Layout by Belinda Spencer

I have loved every minute and thoroughly enjoyed creating with such beautiful product. Thankyou to the wonderful girls in the team and for every one that left such lovely comments on my posts.

The Great Escape and Pretty Boho with Belinda Spencer

June 24, 2016

Happy Friyay Kaisercrafters!!

Belinda here today to share some projects with you featuring the gorgeous June collections ‘Just Landed’ and ‘Boho Dreams’.

Let’s get stuck straight in with my ‘Just Landed’ projects.


I absolutely love the colours in this stunning collection especially the charcoal and the lovely grey, blue.

‘Journey’ Layout by Belinda Spencer

KC June - JL - Journey 1

I altered my background paper with some Charcoal Kaisermist (one of my faves!!) and then created my own stencil using the Card Creations Planes Decorative Die. I simply die cut the planes background from a piece of cardstock and then applied texture paste over it using a spatula.

KC June - JL - Journey 4

I also die cut a piece of Midnight Glitter Cardstock to create my own cute plane embellishments.

KC June - JL - Journey 2

There are so many fabulous die cuts in the Collectables that I wanted to add as many as I could to my layout!

Kaisercraft materials: P2102 Subway | P2104 Flight Path | PP998 Paper Pad | CT857 Collectables | FL576 Wooden Flourish Pack Travel | SS314 Sticker Sheet | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | GC101 Glitter Cardstock Midnight | DD772 Decorative Die Card Creations – Planes – C6 | KM101 Kaisermist Charcoal.

Other: molding paste | date stamp | ink.

‘The Great Escape’ Layout by Belinda Spencer

KC June - JL - The Great Escape 1

For this layout I wanted to use the Polaroids Die Cut Specialty Paper in a different way. I separated the individual polaroids and layered them together behind my photo.

KC June - JL - The Great Escape 2

Kaisercraft materials: P2100 Big City | P2102 Subway | P2103 Sign Posts | PS453 Polaroids Die Cut Specialty Paper | DD772 Decorative Die Card Creations – Planes – C6 | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut.

Other: handmade paper | chipboard.

Next up I have my projects featuring the oh so stunning Boho Dreams collection.


This collection is so pretty with lots of lovely flowers perfect for fussy cutting as well as gorgeous dream catchers which are so popular right now.

‘Picture Perfect’ Layout by Belinda Spencer

KC June - BD - Picture Perfect 1

I was so excited to play with this range as I knew I had the cutest photo of my darling daughter so perfect for this range. She loved her new hat so much back then that she wouldn’t stop posing for me so lucky for me I got to take lots of cute photos!

KC June - BD - Picture Perfect 2

I altered the background on this layout by first applying some stamps from the Clear Stamps set using clear embossing ink. I then heat set with a fine white detail embossing powder. Next I applied Kaisermists in Orange and Red, spritzed with water and blotted away the excess with paper towel.

KC June - BD - Picture Perfect 4

It’s kind of rare for me to use many flowers on a layout but when the Coral Paper Blooms co-ordinate so perfectly, how could I not? :-)

Kaisercraft materials: PP999 Paper Pad | P2109 Wild | P2112 Daydreamer | P2114 Adventurer | P2113 Bohemian | SS315 Sticker Sheet | CT858 Collectables | CS266 Clear Stamps | CD101 Kaisercard Coconut | EM431 Polaroid Cut Outs | F662 Paper Blooms Coral | F667 Mini Paper Blooms Coral | KM108 Kaisermist Orange | KM109 Kaisermist Red.

Other: embossing ink | embossing powder | wire thread. 

Next, I thought I would give you a more up close and personal look at my project for the June Challenge.

‘Kaiser Kraft Exchange’ Pocket Letter

KC June Challenge - BD - Pocket Letter 1

I had so much fun creating this pocket letter for my recipient. I hope it has arrived at it’s new home safe and sound. It had a long way to go. All the way to Singapore (hint hint).

KC June Challenge - BD - Pocket Letter 3

KC June Challenge - BD - Pocket Letter 4

KC June Challenge - BD - Pocket Letter 5

How cute is this custom made arrow? I used the arrow from the Icons Decorative Die set and cut it from Champagne Glitter Cardstock. I then fussy cut three feathers from the Boho Dreams Paper Pad and glued them on to the end of the arrow. To finish, I wrapped a little kitchen twine around to hide the ends of the feathers. Easy! Why not try making your own cute little arrows using this collection?

KC June Challenge - BD - Pocket Letter 6

A cute little glassine envelope containing some glitter cardstock die cuts and sequins for my recipient to pretty up her own projects. I have wrapped a length of metallic gold twine around the envelope to be used also.

KC June Challenge - BD - Pocket Letter 7

The Lucky Dip DIY Mini Pegs are a favourite little embellishment of mine. I just love them and they add the cutest touch to pocket letters, project life pockets or cards.

Finally a little good advice. :-)

KC June Challenge - BD - Pocket Letter 8

Kaisercraft materials: PP999 Paper Pad | CT858 Collectables | SS315 Sticker Sheet | PT228 Glitter Tape Mint | GC105 Glitter Cardstock Champagne | LDB1023 Lucky Dip Kraft Gift Envelopes | LDB1052 Lucky Dip DIY Mini Pegs | DD107 Decorative Die Speech Bubbles | DD346 Decorative Die Icons | DD912 Decorative Die and Stamp Dream Big.

Other: twine | sequins.

I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed making this pocket letter and participating in the Kaiser Kraft Exchange. I love the idea of someone being happily surprised when they receive their snail mail. Make sure you keep an eye out for details of the next one! For now I am eagerly awaiting mine to arrive! I hope it arrives soon. The suspense is killing me. LOL

Thankyou so much for stopping by to check out my projects today. I do hope I have managed to inspire you to get busy with your own beautiful creations.
