Card Making Embossing Folders

Embossing Folders Fun…..

November 6, 2018

Good morning, lets face it there is nothing better than a great Embossing Folders!

They have the ability to elevate your card making with a few quick steps and they are really easy to us as well.
Today we are show  casing  a couple of the new Embossing Folders from the Kaisercraft collections.

 

EF295 Embossing Folder – Flight Path

EF294 Embossing Folder – Crochet Doily

 

Adventure Awaits – Spinner Card and Tutorial By Rikki Graziani

 

PAPERS: LET’GO Collection: PP1056 Paper Pad.

KC PRODUCTS: CT949 Collectables, FL637 Flourish Pack Fly Away, EF295 Flight Path Embossing Folder, CD601 Premium Cardstock – white,

CD511 Card Pk C6 – white, T302 Foam Dots, T321 Acid Free Craft Glue, LDB1056 Foam Tape, T314 Double Sided Tape.

OTHER: Twine

 

Step 1:

Use two different size circle dies and use washi to keep in position when running it through the DIY Die Cut Machine…..

 

 

Step 2:

When you place the Foam Tape to lift the card for the spinner, keep it clear from the center circle so your spinner doesn’t get stuck to it.

Handy Tip ***: if you are worried about the spinner sticking use a little flour and dust the inside of the foam mount.

 

 

Step 3:

To make the spinner – use some smooth cardstock – I used some packaging from the Foam Dots and use two small foam dots, stick them together and its done.

 

 

Step 4:

Add your center circle to your background and double check your spinner doesnt stick.

Or if your not feeling too confident about adding your spinner device in after your stick the center circle add your spinner in first, then stick the center circle last.

 

Now to finish off the card its really up to you… check out the PDF file to see what Collectables I used in detail.

Best Wishes – cards by Terhi Koskinen

Products used: LET’S GO Collection: P2647 Road Map, P2646 Fly Away, P2641 Carry On

CC949 Let’s Go Collectables, SS375 Let’s Go Sticker Sheet, EF294 Crochet Doily Embossing Folder, DD001 DIYcuts Machine, CD601 White Cardstock

Other: White Gel Pen

 

I just love doing quick and easy projects, like now these two cards to my Father and my Grandfather.
Even though the Lets Go collection is very unisex, I tried to catch some masculine look by choosing blue and darker papers.

After I used my lovely DIYcuts Machine, I used white gel pen to highlight the details.

Go ahead and try this simple technique, it’s so much fun!

Happy crafting!

Lilac Whisper Terhi Koskinen

‘Beautiful’ scrapbook layout by Terhi Koskinen

July 12, 2017

Hello Kaisercrafters!

It’s Terhi Koskinen here, happily sharing my long planned scrapbook layout with a massive stitched heart.

The idea came from my social media feeds, as so many talented scrapbookers have found hand stitching really trendy lately. And of course I wanted to try it out! I’m not that clever with needles and if you take a really close look you might find a drop of domething red there too. Tried to cover it with pearls, but things happen when excited and learning new skills.

For this layout I used the beautiful ‘Lilac Whisper’ collection, and as the collection is filled with tender and soft colors and floral patterns, I chose to use this pretty photograph of my two sweethearts posing to me. Beautiful black&white photo goes perfectly with beautiful papers.

Only contrasting part of the layout is the black lines drawn with black marker. Thought it needed something small to give contrast but not much, and this hand drawing made it good.

Now please let me say a huge thank you for Kaisercraft for this amazing and creative year. My crafty life will continue a bit slower for the upcoming fall, but I’m absolutely sure Kaisercraft will be part of it in a way or another in the future too. I’m so grateful for all the opportunities I have had with Kaisercraft, it’s been a huge privilege to work for the kind of supporting company. Thank you Melissa, Kylie and all my team collagues for DT term 2016-2017 <3

Terhi xx
