Texture with Templates Tutorial : Lori Williams

Hi Everyone, it’s Lori here and today I’m going to share a hot product that’s on the market that goes perfect with KaiserCraft’s templates/stencils….the Gelli Plate.

So let’s jump right in, shall we?

step one

Step One: Squirt varying colors of paint on a Gelli Mat.

step two

Step Two: Swirl the colors together

step three

Step 3: Lay your KaiserCraft stencil over the top of your colors

Step four

Step Four: Place tag or other paper over the stencil and roll a brayer over the top.  The Gelli mat will allow the paper to bend into the open areas and soak up the paint.

step five

Step Five: With the negative paint that has been left on the Gelli pad you can roll another tag/paper over the top for a different effect

step six

Here are the two examples of the negative and the positive rolls and below is the finish tag.  One tip I will give you is don’t be afraid to layer.  Sometimes when we get that beautiful finish we don’t want to stamp or embellish over the top of it, but the depth you can achieve with layers is well worth it.

Tuesday Tip With Kelly-ann Making Tulle Flowers

For Today’s Tuesday Tip I’m going to give you a quick run down on how easy it is to make Tule Flowers for your Layouts.

You can use traditional white or coloured tulle to make these flowers.

Right now I’m going to show you to make tulle flowers just like the ones on this layout…

‘Dare To Dream’ Layout by Kelly-ann Oosterbeek DareToDreamLayout_HappySnaps_KellyAnnOosterbeek

Kaisercraft Products: P1481 Picture Perfect,P1487 Smile,  P1482 Snap Shot, P1483 Click Click, P1484 Instant, CT790 Collectables, CD101 Coconut Cardstock, EM930 Pearl Brad, PT205 Happiness Printed Tape, EM995 Paper Leaves, TM813 Brass Metal Padlocks, RB884 After 5 Rubons, T223 Scallop Blade Cutter.

Other: Black and white pens, butterfly stickers, white tule, button, small flower punch, large yellow flower, large flourish die

So here’s how it’s done…

1. Take a generous length of Tulle at least 15cm wide and fold multiple times (at least 7 times). Place a 2.5” Circle on this and mark out as many circles as you can fit on your tulle.

TuesdayTipInstructions1_TulleFlowers_KellyAnnOosterbeek

2. Cut out the circles out keeping the folded layers intact. This should result in many circles all the same size.

TuesdayTipInstructions2_TulleFlowers_KellyAnnOosterbeek

3. Fold 6 of these circles into quarters using Adhesive Glue Spots to hold them together.

TuesdayTipInstructions3_TulleFlowers_KellyAnnOosterbeek

4. Adhere all these quarters to a full circle of tulle again using the glue spots.

TuesdayTipInstructions4_TulleFlowers_KellyAnnOosterbeek

TuesdayTipInstructions5_TulleFlowers_KellyAnnOosterbeek

5. Finish by adding a Pearl Brad or button to the centre of the flower and adhere to your layout.

TuesdayTipInstructions6_TulleFlowers_KellyAnnOosterbeek

Extra Tip: you can also add colour to these gorgeous tulle flowers by inking the material before sticking together.

Joanne here with you today to share my tip. Well I hope everyone loves using the Kaisercraft sticker sheets just like the one below which is in the Limelight Collection because today I have a little tip to help you use the stickers a little more creatively.

stick

Who said stickers need to be stuck directly to the background paper? Well not me as I hate sticking them down. As everyone knows I love my projects to be quiet dimensional and sometimes I look at the sticker sheets and think I really want to use that sticker in the middle layer or top layer rather then using it as a bottom layer.

Layout_Limelight_Joanne-Bain_detail

So my tip is to stick the sticker to a scrap or piece of contrasting paper and cut around it. This allows the stickers to be used anywhere on the page or project without you having to worry about them sticking to anything you don’t want them to. On my projects shown today I have used the bigger stickers as a top layer on my layout closeup and as a middle layer on the notebook.

I hope my little tip allows you to get a little more creative with your stickers.

Happy crafting!!!

Tuesday Tip: Colouring Stamped Images With KAISERfusions

Hello everyone! It’s Cathy here and I would like to share with you how to colour in stamped images using KAISERfusion markers. I am a beginner at using alcohol markers but I am going to share what I have learnt so far. This tip may be a bit long, but I’ll be as succinct as possible!

Firstly, you need to have paper and ink that are suitable for alcohol markers. I have used X-Press It Blending Card and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. When you use alcohol markers, you are able to blend and apply multiple layers of colour. The right ink prevents colours from bleeding and the right paper eliminates any paper pilling.

When selecting markers for your project, you need a light, medium and a dark. I have played around with the markers that I have to find these possible combinations. I have a journal specifically for this and I also use this as a place to practise my colouring.

 

Step One: Stamp your image onto X-Press It Blending Card using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Tuesday Tip - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Step Two: Select your light, medium and dark colours for the body. I have used Y05, Y07 and Y09.

Tuesday Tip 2 - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Step Three: Using Y05, colour the body of the lion.

Tuesday Tip 3 - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Step Four: Working in one section at a time, use your dark marker which is Y09 to create a shadow near the lion’s tail.

Tuesday Tip 4 - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Step Five: Select your medium marker which is Y07 and blend out from the edge of your dark using a flicking motion. Repeat this step of blending from dark to light until you have blended out any lines.

Tuesday Tip 5 - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Step Six: Select another section of the lion where you want shadows. Repeat steps three, four and five . It’s important to work in small sections at a time so that the ink doesn’t dry out.

Tuesday Tip 6 - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Step Seven: For the remaining sections of the lion, my light, medium and dark markers are OR04, OR05 and R01.

Tuesday Tip 7 - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Step Eight: Layer your lightest colour first which is OR04, then blend out from darkest to lightest.

Tuesday Tip 8 - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Step  Nine: For my background, I used a cloud template, ink and a sponge dauber to create clouds in the background.

Tuesday Tip 9 - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Step Ten: To create the grass, I used Kaiserfusions markers. Again I used a light G11, medium G13 and a dark G14 and an optional white gel pen. Starting with G11, randomly make V marks all over the area where you want grass. Repeat this with G13 and G14. Add some highlight by making some V marks with a white gel pen.

Tuesday Tip 10 - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Tuesday Tip 10a - Hello Sunshine - Cathy McGrath

Here is my finished card:

There are some terrific stamps available in the Hello Sunshine Collection. Use your Kaiserfusion markers and create some one of a kind creations.

Tuesday Tip – Quick and easy step card instructions with Kelly-ann

Hi everyone, Kelly-ann here to share how to make VERY quick and easy step cards.

There are of course very technical ways of making step cards that involve measuring, scoring, cutting accurately and taking your time to do so….my tutorial today will NOT include any of that! LOL

This is the card that I make in the tutorial and you can see the same formula applied to any of the step cards that I post in this blog for all the collections featured by the design team…

So without any further ado feel free to follow THIS LINK ( or click on the photo above)  and see how to make VERY quick and easy step cards!

Have fun!

Smiles from Kelly-ann :)

Bling your Flowers Tutorial with Lori

Hello everyone, Lori with you.  Today I’ve got a great little tip/trick/tutorial for some blinged out flowers Kaisercraft style.

Step One Blog Tutorial

Step 1: Run a paper bloom through a 3″ Create a Sticker by Xyron.  This will coat the entire flower with adhesive.

Step 2: Rub the flower well and then remove the top clear layer.  You can run your finger over the flower now and rub off any excess glue.

Step 3: Coat the adhesive side of the flower with a fine glitter.

Step 4: Use a sharp pointed pair of tweezers and scrap off some of the glitter in a pattern.  I just used lines down each of the petals. The paper blooms softness and the Xyron glue work great together for manipulation.

Step 5: Create several various sizes and stack together to create a full flashy flower.  Top the center off with a Sparklet.

Here is my oversized tag I created adorned with my sparkly flowers.

Here is a complete list of all the products I used for this piece

Kaisercraft Products: Violet Crush Collection: SB705 Lilac, CT782 Collectables, P412 Dainty, P1413 Mallow, F613 Violet Rhinestones, F1410 Plum Flowers, RS408 Sparklets/Crystal.

Other Products Used: Dies, Tweezers, Glitter, Xyron 3″ Disposable Create a Sticker, Foam Tape, Ink, Tag

Tuesday Tip: Altered Background

Hi Everyone, Lori with you and today I’ve got a great tutorial for you that will come in so handy for any project, mixed media, scrapbooking or cards. It’s super easy and super cool.  Let’s get started

First step is pick some designer paper that has some color variation throughout.  I’ve used a sheet from the latest collection from Kaisercraft, Paradisco .  Using an embossing folder emboss your sheet of paper.

Next you want to cover the high areas of the paper with versa mark ink.

 Cover with fine clear embossing powder and heat seat.  Do this 2-3 times to build up a good base.

Next you want to take a dark color of ink and sponge dauber onto the paper.  This is really going to make it pop.

Once it’s covered very good wipe away any excess with a baby wipe.

Isn’t this beautiful.  Now it’s ready to use in a project.  You’ll find pictures of my project below and I think you’ll agree it gives great depth and texture to your work.

Tuesday Tip – How To Make Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossom 2 - Tuesday tip - Cathy McGrath

Hello everyone! It’s Cathy here and I would like to share with you how to make a cherry blossom using Kaisercraft flowers. I love using flowers in my projects. I use all different sizes to add interest and cherry blossoms are great to use to compliment different sized blooms.

You will need :

Cherry Blossom Supplies - Tuesday Tip - Cathy McGrath

 

-          Kaisercraft Paper Flowers Ivory F602

-          Stamens

-          Molding mat and stylus

-          Ink

-          Hole punch

-          Scissors and glue

Select two of the smallest blooms from the pack and ink the edges.

Cherry blossom 1 - Tuesday Tip - cathy McGrath

Using a stylus, rotate it around one of the inked flowers so that it creates a cupped shape.

Cherry blossom 3 - Tuesday Tip - Cathy McGrath

Punch a hole in the centre of both flowers.

Apply some glue and align both flowers together.

Carefully insert some stamens through the centre. Apply extra glue to secure. Twist the ends of the stamens and you’re done!

 

Here is an  example of some of my cherry blossoms in a project…..
