Tuesday Tip by Mistra Hoolahan – Watercolour ‘Paints’

IMG_1939

When I used the Kaiser Inks for the first time, I noticed how wonderfully ‘juicy’ they were.  Juicy inks to me, mean fun!  I couldn’t wait to see how well they’d react with water and I was delighted to find they created a perfect watercolour ‘paint’.

Today I’m going to share with you how I created the simple stamped background on the card.  My scrap table now is glass… which is very handy for mixed media messy work!  You could use a craft sheet for this, or a glass cutting board. Either will work well.

IMG_1888

First I simply pressed the ink pad directly onto the glass…

IMG_1889

…and then spritz with some water to activate and thin the ink pigments. This creates a watercolour palette to work with.  You can blend the colours, add more water, add more ink… just as you would for true watercolour paints.

IMG_1890

Next I stamped my chosen image onto white cardstock. Use a quick drying permanent ink for this so you don’t need to worry about the ink bleeding after adding water.

IMG_1891

And next I simply added a colour wash over the image.  I started with the lighter tones and added and blended the darker tones afterwards.

IMG_1892

Mist with water between colours to help them blend a little more easily.

IMG_1893 IMG_1894

Once it was finished I tore the image out while wet to create the deckle edged finish.

Once dry, create your card.  Here I have positioned it over a background created with crackle texture paint which was tinted with paint and then smeared over a template, then this was given a watercolour wash with black ink.   Or you could pop this in as a one of a kind embellishment on a layout or project.

Tuesday Tip by Michelle Grant – Creating Dimension and Depth

Tuesday Tip By Michelle Grant – Creating Dimension and Depth
Good-Friends-11-by-Michelle

Have you looked at layouts and projects and wonder how do they create all that dimension. It is super easy once it is broken down.
As you can see on the card above everything seems to blend seamlessly together.
It is all about layering and over lapping and using different embellishments.

Now to show you the difference this can make here is the same card with just some paper roses and butterflies, while still pretty it just feels a bit lifeless.
Good-Friends-6-by-Michelle-

Take the same card again with just fussy cut flowers still pretty but a little flat looking.
SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

By simply blending the two and cutting up the fussy cutting flowers and leaves into smaller pieces and breaking apart flowers you can blend the two elements to create lots of dimension.
Good-Friends-5-by-Michelle-
Start with breaking apart a few of the roses, I generally take the bottom one or two layers of the petals off. This gives you a smaller rose bud and flat petals that can peek out under some of the layers or you can scrunch them up to create another flower.

Then cut the fussy cut flowers down into smaller pieces, this gives you control over what you poke out from here and there so you are not tied to the original size & shape and you can overlap them over each other.
Good-Friends-10-by-Michelle

Then to layer all the pieces I use Scrapdots or you could use 3D foam tape and a pva type glue. I like Helmar Tiger grip or 450.

Always start with the biggest pieces and flowers and start with them generally on the bottom of your project. For eg the big orange rose would be too heavy to put on the top corner of the card.
Then to balance the colours try and create a triangle of colour. When adding different colours and embellishments they generally look better in odd numbers.

You can see there are 3 butterflies on there grouped to form a triangle, placing butterflies going in different directions helps to create movement on your project. The bottom butterfly on the orange flower is directing your attention to the 2nd butterfly who is then directing your attention to the tag and 3rd butterfly, therefore drawing your eye across the card.

When I put a cluster together I arrange all the pieces in place and work out where I want them to go before I start sticking down. Start with adhering the larger pieces first then build out from there, poking bits under and over the previous piece.
You don’t need to add glue to the whole embellishment, just to the spots that are getting tucked in, leaving the ends free and poking up is what helps add more dimension.
Good Friends 7 by Michelle Grant
Use 3D foam tape or a piece of cardboard to add dimension to larger pieces.
It is amazing the difference a piece of 3D foam tape can make.
Good-Friends-12-by-Michelle
I stuck the large orange flower down first and built the cluster out from there.
I hope you have enjoyed this tip on creating dimension, if you need something clarified or if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments below.

how cool is this range,  honestly how cool?

This is definitely going to be a staple ‘go to’ in my stash, I have already bought many of these papers again and also in the big paper pad… sigh.

I have made three layouts with this range for the blog.

Love is a bumpy ride… I love this photo, but it also serves to remind me what many parents know it is a bumpy ride, so hang on.

add extra details without the sewing machine, just a black fine liner. The dotty wash tape acts as another element. Also don’t forget to create layers with foam dots.

Cut your paper down to a 4×6 size and do your journalling on that and chop it up to be long banners, weave some thread around and through the layers.

cheers.. happy weekend creating

Seriously who doesn’t have a supply of buttons left over from that button trend a couple of years ago. Why not cut out multiply leaves or feathers in numerous colours and make this really simple and cool boarder.

and just to show you that I really do run a circus… look away if you don’t do ‘MUD’ – squelching mud is a favourite past time of mine and I thought I would introduce this to the kids in the backyard…

Tuesday Tip with Linda Eggleton – Altering your paper blooms

Hi Kaisercraft fans…Happy Tuesday to you all :)

It’s Linda here with you today to share a few tips on altering your paper blooms.

The first tip involves the wire stems on the blooms that we generally cut off & throw away.  So you might want to start keeping them for this little technique.

wire 1

You will need some wire stems and a metal awl for this technique. I find that the stems from the mini paper blooms are a bit longer in length, and therefore better to work with.  Shorter stems are still ok though and will give you a variety of different length spirals.

wire 2

Using an awl, or any other long rounded tool that isn’t too thick, twist & wind the wire stems around the awl.

wire 3

Continue winding until the entire length of the stem is wound around in a spiral.

wire 4

You may find that you will need a pair of pliers to pinch down each end of the wire so that it’s curled in under rather than sticking out with sharp edges.  This isn’t absolutely necessary, but will just finish your spirals off nice and neat.

wire 5

Once the full length of the wire is wound around the awl, slide it off the end of the awl and they are now ready to add to your blooms or clusters as little spiral sprigs :)

My next tip is how to alter your paper blooms into a gorgeous 2 toned bloom.

bloom 1

It is best to work with the bigger paper blooms.

First, cut the wire stem off from the back of your bloom.  Then gently pull the bloom apart so that you end up with 2 pieces – the bottom which will be about 2 layers of petals and will form the base of your bloom, and the 2nd piece will be the main centre of the bloom.

bloom 2

They generally come apart without too much difficulty.

Bloom 3

Using the smaller centre of a bloom that you have pulled apart, glue it down to the base section of a coordinating bloom….or you could use a full smaller bloom to add as the centre, as I have done with the pink bloom.

The Olive & Honey blooms I’ve alternated the centre from one to the other so that one has a Honey base and the other has a Honey centre.

Here is a card I’ve created using both of these techniques….

Card 3

Card 1.1

Card 2

I hope you have enjoyed my little tutorial and that I have inspired you to have a go with these techniques on spiralled sprigs & 2 toned blooms.

Enjoy the rest of your day :)

Mistletoe – Naomi

I love a 6×6 paper pad it is something about all those cute little prints that has turned it into something of an addiction…

So how much can you actually get out of a 6 inch paper pad?

Well in a word A lot!

I first started by dividing my pad into equal halves.

The first half I was going to make a 4 inch mini album out of chipboard to celebrate our ‘Elf on a shelf’

kaiseraugust

DSCN2850

The album covers are chipboard cut to a 4.5″ square size and then I cut 25 4″ squares for the pages and then cut out a slightly smaller square out of the patterned paper

then I set about using the scraps to decorate.

DSCN2851 DSCN2854

Products used Kaisercraft Mistletoe 6″ paper pad PP945 I Cardstock Cool White CD601 I CD102- Licorice I Jump rings I CT802  Collectables

the aim of this album is to be relatively flat so that I can keep up the same format in the coming years and have a little basket under the tree to giggle at. The lumps and bumps can also get easily damaged due to handling…

Mistletoe layout – Naomi

so with the other half I decided to do a layout.. A simple patchwork triangle tree design.

DSCN2857 DSCN2858

Products used Kaisercraft Mistletoe 6″ paper pad PP945 I Cardstock Cool White CD601 I CD102- Licorice

Other products Red sequins I silhouette cut file

 and with plenty left over I thought I would collect all the little bits and make a easy card/tag gift set for all those friends of mine that want to make tags but don’t have the time to collect the goodies… Lucky I like to collect them hahahaha

Products used Kaisercraft Mistletoe 6″ paper pad PP945 I Cardstock Cool White CD601 I CD102- Licorice I Kaisercraft scissors I  red dot washi tape I Black Ink I Mistletoe stamp I Rhinestones

Other products Red sequins I twine

So my suggestion is buy that little 6×6 pad and stretch it as far as you can you would be surprised …. I would love to see what you can do with it..

Tuesday Tip with Amanda Baldwin

Tuesday Tip with Amanda Baldwin

Today’s tip is: “Make it a Mini in Minutes!”

Hi Kaisercraft fans, Happy Tuesday!

Amanda here & today I want to share with you the world’s easiest mini album!

It requires only 3 products and makes in minutes!

Here’s your essential must have items:

2014-07-29 14.10.08

Yes, Captured Moments Journal Cards & Printed Tape – so simple!

Here’s how….

2014-07-29 19.12.07Select 5 of the double-sided 4 x 6″ Journal Cards, and arrange into sequence order. Use printed tape (as shown above) to attach front and back covers. Flip over and repeat taping on the inside of the covers too.

2014-07-29 19.16.31

Insert next ‘page’ & attach with the printed tape on both sides. Simple!

2014-07-29 19.15.37

Voila! 5 pages ready to decorate!

2014-07-29 19.17.16

Using the same printed tape technique, attach a few of 3 x 4″ Journal cards . I love the interest the little ‘flaps’ create! Nothings too cute for a mini!

2014-07-29 19.18.15

This 3 x 4″ Journal Card is attached differently so it can ‘hide’ a personalised message or image.

And that’s how to make a Mini in Minutes!

My mini uses the fabulous new Peppermint Swirl Journal Cards, and is all ready to go for this Christmas!The only thing left for you to do is decorate the cover and make the memories!

Here’s my completed cover….

2014-07-29 19.20.45

I decorated mine with some of my gorgeous left over Stickers and Collectables from the new Mistletoe collection. Muslin, ribbon and Paper Blooms: Fire Red complete this cute cover. Perfect!

Told you this was the easiest Mini Album you’ll ever make!

And the best part is that you can mix and match any of your Captured Moments Journal Cards to make a mini!

Hope you’ll give this Mini in Minutes a try! Happy Creating!

Tuesday Tip with Cathy – Altering your pp’s with Gesso

Hi everyone,

This week it’s my turn to share a Tuesday Tip, so I thought I would show you how to alter your bright pp’s a few different ways by softening the colours using gesso. These techniques can also be used with softer coloured pp’s for a more pastel look.

 Tuesday Tip 29-07-14 - gesso backgrounds rs

Top left - Dampen a sea sponge in water, squeeze, then dry off excess water with a tea towel, so it’s only just damp.  Lightly dab into some gesso, then pat the sponge onto your pp.  Keep sponging until you are happy with the coverage.  I like to cover most of the paper, leaving a border around the edges untouched for some contrast.

Top right - This section was altered with a damp paintbrush and gesso.  Use up and down strokes to apply gesso mixed with a touch of water. You can see the difference between the sponging and watered down gesso which just lightly softens the colour of the paper.  The thicker the gesso is, the less the pattern and colours will show through.

Bottom left - Using gesso and a bit of folded cardboard, lightly dip the folded edge of the cardboard in the gesso and drag it up and down your paper, for a messier look.

Bottom right - Lastly, use gesso and a densely patterned mask which will cover most of the pattern. Here I have used the Kaisercraft bubbles stencil.

If you look at the closely at the technique example, you can see the difference in colour between the original bright background and the changes with each different technique.

 Tuesday Tip project rs

Here, I have created a soft colour wash card using the sponged technique on the background and the masking technique on the corners of the card. The pp insert in the envelope was altered with the watered down gesso technique applied with a paintbrush.

Naomi – Stamped layout

Each collection has a great set of stamps so why not make them a foundation for a layout… This months Bow and arrows set is awesome in a word.

going a long with the current trends of dribbles of colours and clumps of threads and shots of colour, I really like this teenage boy page.

DSCN2742

remember that it doesn’t need to be a perfect stamp every time, so alter the amount of pressure you apply and the amount of ink… and if in doubt stamp on spare paper and the second on your layout… I really like the worn look to the frames.

DSCN2744

Stamp the chevron pattern on to a scrap white and then line it up with a My favourite things feather die or cut your own feather shape. The chevron works perfectly for feathers

Naomi – GURU

layers is the key to any layout, even simple ones like this… add texture with paint and alternate embellishments with foam dots and always make sure that clusters disperse and scatter to kept the focal point the photo

‘Domi’- Layout

Can you pick the odd paper out?

One of my favourite things about Kaisercraft paper is that often I can interchange at least one or two papers between the ranges… Which sort of means that I MUST buy them all because I can use it all. Which is a win win which is what I tell the husband anyway.

Can you pick the pitter patter in the layout?

DSCN2724

Did you pick the pitter patter baby cakes. the beautiful script writing works perfectly with this range.

A little shot of a contrasting colour in this case yellow always helps  for a bit of pop in a predominately one tone layout…

PS… don’t forget to set yourself a challenge and try to intermix ranges. I would love to see the combinations.

Jewellery Board – Naomi

How many times do you put your jewellery down and forget where you put them.. Well not anymore I won’t.

DSCN2730

This romantic range lends itself to the richness of a french inspired letter board. I glittered up a Recipe stand and then went to work covering and lacing a 12X12 chipboard square with satin seam binding and then inserting the silver knobs…

Tuesday Tip with Adriana

Hello everyone, it is my turn today for “Tuesday Tips”, and sharing a very quick and easy tip with you all.

Kaisercraft 12′ x 12′ papers come with a 10mm strip on the bottom of each page. On one side it gives details of the paper collection and a unique “P” number, as well as a bar code for scanning. These are trimmed off and on the other side is a strip of coordinating paper.

P1070463

This coordinating strip of paper can be used in so many ways.

P1070465

 They can be used on cards, layouts and all types of projects.  I like using them on cards for an extra unique touch. Sometimes these strips have a patterned design and sometimes they have sentiments or phrases. You can cut them up individually to decorate your card or layout.

Here is an example of a card using many of these strips together.

P1070472

P1070470

So next time you cut or trim off the little strips of paper from your recently purchased Kaisercraft papers, keep it !!!  …….. it might be the needed finishing touch on your project.

Have a great crafting week :)

Cheers Adriana

CardKeeper and Card – Naomi Cox

What do you give the new mumma that most likely has three of everything?

pitterpatter

A beautiful handmade card and card keeper, of course. A card is for those tonnes of congratulations and welcome cards your little person will receive …

DSCN2692

The new mumma simply has to use a hole punch on the cards and open the rings…easy for them and so so easy for you to make too with a few simple ingredients from the Kaiser range. Chipboard (cut two pieces what ever size you like), 1 Ornament frame, 3 Jump rings, paper and pitter-patter collectables… then start making.

Tuesday Tips with Alison – Altering Ribbon Roses

Hi Everyone,

Today I would like to share with you a tip on how you can use Kaisercraft Ribbon roses in may different ways.

All you need are Kaisercraft ribbon roses, heatgun, scissors and a wooden skewer to hold your rose.

To make a ‘leaf’ – cut a green ribbon rose in half, then adhere the cut side together. If you trim on the diagonal it helps with the shape.

Alison - Tuesday Tip -  leaves

Starting from the left top 1st row – the first rose is the standard rose cut off the strip; the next one along has been heated with the heat gun holding the centre with the skewer (start with a hot blast in the centre and then ‘work’ the heat around to shrink the ribbon and shape it like a bud);  next is a ribbon rose which has a pearl brad in the centre.

2nd row – to make the 1st flower, I hold the back of the rose and ‘pull’ out lots of strands from the front to make it shabby (or a bit frazzled?); the 2nd flower is the same as the previous one, then heated, the same way as above.

3rd row – here I have pulled the rose apart, making a length of ribbon which is perfect for a cute little bow!

Alison - Tuesday Tip - flowers & bows

With a pearl brad in a standard rose and a couple of ‘leaves’ it makes a cute addition to a card or a flower cluster.

Alison - Tuesday Tip - leaves example

On this layout, made with Heirloom, I used a ribbon rose with a pearl brad and another of the heated rose (shrunk) in the clusters.

Tuesday Tip - LO example

Below is the heated rose with some ink swiped across the top.

Below is a ribbon rose with a pearl brad as a centre.

tip flower closeup 2

Hope you’ll try some of these ways of altering your ribbon roses.

Be creative, Alison x

Tuesday Tip with Flutter Template

Hi All,

Today I would like to share with you a tip using a the 12 X 12 Flutter template from Kaisercraft.

All you need is the template and some stamp ink

I find the Kaisercraft Templates have  just  the right amount of hardness,
making it very easy to blur the stamp ink and get the perfect effect.

1

I used a sponge dauber commonly used for the stencil.
Blur the beige ink.

2

Blur the pink ink and remember to change the sponge dauber for  each colour

3

You can fine-tune the colour with the stamp ink, it is also easy to make the graduation.

4

This is the perfect tool to use for tags, cards and in the background of any layout.

5

Good luck :)

Kaori x

Tuesday Tip with Adriana Bolzon using Captured Moments

Hi there everyone thanks for stopping by,

Today I am showcasing a special project that I created for Kaisercraft using the paper collection “Something Blue”. 

Now as the name suggests, yes it is a perfect collection for Wedding projects, cards etc. Very modern and fresh.

But I want to demonstrate, how versatile the “Captured Moments”  - Celebrate Life Journal cards

Also, I want to show you all that these papers and journalling cards can be used for everyday themes, not just Weddings. Now these journalling cards are great for all your pocket pages, which are in vogue at the moment, but also they are fabulous for your cards and altered art projects.

In today’s tip, I will show you what I created with just the “Captured Moments” journalling cards 3″ x 4″ size. 

but they are also available in the 4″ x 6″ size, as well. So with some Collectables, flowers and punches and one 12 x 12 white card stock for the background.

I created this page. “Enjoy the little things”

 

Very fresh and modern and very simple to do. In fact, it all came together in just a few minutes.  Applying other cards on top of each other and also using border punches etc.

 I also created this table stand which will be featured last week on the blog with the “Something Blue” papers and using the “Fall in Love” from the Captured Moment journalling card. 

Well I hope I have inspired you to create and use “Captured Moments” cards in different way….    Happy Crafting everyone  !!!!    :)

Cheers Adriana XX

Tuesday Tip with Lori : Chalk Stamping

close up of finished project

Hi Everybody it’s Lori with you today sharing my last design team post.  I can’t say how much I’ve loved the last three years and what a wonderful company KaiserCraft is to work with.  I’ll miss it very much but have a feeling I’ll still be having to get my fixes of their beautiful collections.

Today’s tip is one that is really simple but so cool looking and I thought the Something Blue Collection would be perfect for the technique.  Chalk stamping.

step two

Gathering you supplies : Clear Stamp and Block, White Pigment Ink and Black Card Stock, white pen, and clear embossing powder with heat gun.

step one

Use a cornstarch pouch over the top of your cardstock to keep any random embossing powder from scattering over your surface.

step three

Stamp your image with White Pigment Ink and then cover with clear embossing powder and heat set.

step four

Stamp your image again with a slight off set and not lined up exactly.  This will give a more authentic look to your chalkboard effect.

step five

Take a dry brush and rub over your inkpad, then rub in lines over your sentiment.  This will make it look like a wipe off chalkboard.

step six

Once you put the ink on with the brush rub over everything with your finger to blend.

step seven step eight

For the final touch you can use a white pen and make lines on the sides with a ruler and then rub with your finger, again to soften everything up.

tuesday tutorial finished card

Here is the finished card.  I love the way it looks…simple but so cool.

KaiserCraft Product Used: CS176 He & She Stamp Set, CS175 Ever After Stamp Set, P1525 I Do, P1527 Honey Moon

Other Products Used: White Pigment Ink, Brush, Ruler, White Pen, Cornstarch Pouch, Embossing Powder and Heat Gun, Ribbon, and Card Stock.

Tuesday Tip How To Make a Tag Pocket Card

Hello everyone! It’s Cathy here and today I would like to share with you how I make a Tag Pocket Card.

Steps

  1. Cut 1 x 6” square of cardstock. (Tag)
  2. Cut 1  12” x 6” cardstock. Score it at 3” and at 6” as shown.Tag Pocket One Cathy McGrath
  3. On the side measure 2 ½” from the top and cut to centre score line. Punch along the edge.Tag Pocket Two - Cathy McGrathTag Pocket Three - Cathy McGrath
  4. Inside Panel Select one sheet of paper from the paper pad. Trim edges to form a small border and attach. Place some double sided tape to inside of front panels as shown and secure into place.Tag Pocket 4 (2)
  5. Front Panels From one sheet of patterned paper from the paper pad, cut 2 at 3” then trim long edge by 1/8”. Measure and attach.Tag Pocket 5 Cathy McGrath
  6. Tag Select the 6” square cardstock prepared earlier and trim 1/8” of two sides to form the base. Embellish with papers from the paper pad and collectables.Tag Pocket 6 Cathy McGrath
  7. Border Strip Cut 1 ½” x12” border strip. Punch edges using a decorative punch. Then cut a ½” contrast strip and attach. Use a scoring tool to assist the strip to fit the shape of the card before attaching.Tag Pocket 7 Cathy McGrath
  8. Add final embellishments.

Below are two samples of this card that I have shared on the blog before using papers from The Kaleidoscope Collection and also from Telegraph Road.

Tuesday Tip – How to make a right hexagon.

Hi, everyone! It’s Kaori ;-)
I would like to share how to make a right hexagon.
We can make a right hexagon easily only using ruler.
1
Using a ruler, draw a straight line on a grid paper.
IMG_3648
Marked 1:2:1 point and draw the perpendicular lines.
3
Take a  point on the perpendicular lines so that red lines become same length.
4
Drawn the other three points by the same way  and connect all.
5
Cut and finished.

I hope you enjoy it.

Tuesday Tip – Clear stamps

Hi there everyone,  Adriana here today,  with today’s Tuesday tip at Kaisercraft. Every paper collection that Kaisercraft produce have a set of clear stamps to compliment the papers. They are so simple and easy to use.

Today I will show you how you can use them to simply create a unique paper design for a card. But you are not limited to cards, you can create background designs for your layout or use them on your Project Life cards. The set of stamps I have chosen is the “Honey Chai” set which has been released this month. I have used all the 4 stamps of this clear stamp set to create my card.

CS169 Honey Chai Clear Stamp

French_clear stamp CS169

I do love the cute birds and the details in the leaves and flowers.

 Here is my finished card

1. Mount your stamp on clear block and stamp around the edges of your card stock, with the wreath style stamp. Making sure that you only stamp the edges.

2. Stamp the 3 birds on a twig stamp on card stock.

3. Stamp 3 butterflies on cardstock.

4. Colour inside all images with assorted colours of Kaiser Fusion.

5. Stamp the large rose on edges of other cardstock. Also, cut out the 3 butterflies with scissors.

 6. Place foam tape underneath a Honey Chai Collectable word phrase, adhere on to bottom of card. Adhere card on large folded card. Place foam dots under butterflies and attach to card front.

Your finished card will always be a unique one of kind card, using the stamping clear set from Kaisercraft.

Hope you find time to create something with Clear Stamps this week, Cheers Adriana :)
