Kaisercraft - On Stage Collection



Hi Everyone,

This week I am sharing my projects created with Kaisercraft's fabulous new "On Stage" Collection. This music-themed range comes in red, black white and a hint of brown tones and is very versatile as it could be used for masculine and feminine LO's as well as all your music-related pages.  I was so excited to have some of my creations on display at the Kaisecraft Stand for the recent CHA 2015 Mega Show.

"Music is the Art of Thinking With Sounds" Layout
This range lends itself well to a grungy masculine page.  Here I have masked and stamped my background, then torn and layered various pattern paper to draw the eye to my photo.   The matching collectables make it so easy to add those finishing touches to your page.

Kaiser Product: On Stage - Paper -  P1765 Curtain, P1769 Encore, P1767 Act, P1772 Arts, P1773 Audience, CT821 Collectables, T613 Template Quarters, Clear Texture Stamps – CS154 Film Edges, CS162 Stains, Ink IP719 Black, IP734 Red
Other:  Modelling Paste

 
“Superstar Performance” Layout
Couldn't help myself and was drawn to create another grungy masculine layout, using a pic of Luke on stage rocking it out at one of his High School concert performances.
All that was needed for this background was gesso and a couple of lids to create your circles.  You could leave it plain or add a little random stamping to add a little bit of depth to your background.

“There’s a Little Theatre in us All” Layout
I found these old pics of Brittany in her first musical theatre performance.  It looks like the papers were made for this photo!!

Other Product:  gesso, modelling paste, mist, punch


“Music is an Outburst of the Soul” Mixed Media Journal Page
Creating a journal page is so therapeutic!!  Kaisercraft have a fabulous spiral bound A4 journal book which comes in Kraft, but it's super easy to give your pages a coat of gesso for a plain white background.

 Went for something a little more feminine here with a few pretty cards.  If you want to make it quick and easy to create multiple cards, just copy your original card using different pp's and change the embellishments to match.

Kasiercraft Tuesday Tip - Embossing Folder Techniques

Hi Everyone,

Kaisercraft have just released a fab range of  Embossing Folders, so I thought I would share a couple of effective techniques that I love to use, created with an embossing folder and a couple of mediums.

Alison Bevis recently shared quite a few embossing folder techniques using your cuttlebug, but with these 2 techniques all you need is an embossing folder, cardstock and mist or texture paste.


Misting Technique

For this first technique, you will need – embossing folder, mist, and cardstock.



1  Spray one side of your embossing folder with mist
2.  Use it like a stamp and press the folder onto your cardstock. Make sure you press all over the folder and hold it down for 10-20 seconds to allow the mist to absorb into your cardstock.
3.  Lift off and you have a gorgeous watercolour image.



Kaisercraft Product: All That Glitters Collection – PP964 paper pad, CM326 Captured Moments 4×6″ Cards – sparkle, EF205 Embossing Folder – Damask, DD 516 Decorative Dies – Vines

Texture Paste Technique

On the second technique you will need an embossing folder, water mister, texture paste, cardstock and mist. I was shown this fab technique by the lovely and talented Kim Ewins.

1.  Apply a coat of texture paste to your cardstock, then allow to sit for 5-10 mins, as you don’t want it too wet.
2.  Lightly spray one side of your embossing folder with water mister, then press down firmly, all over your embossing folder.
3.  Lift off gently. Make sure you wash your embossing folder straight away, as if the texture paste dries, your embossing folder will be ruined.
4.  Allow to dry, then mist over the top, to show off your embossed image.

Damask Embossing Folder- EF205

You can play around with both sides of the embossing folder with these techniques, for a positive and negative image.

Have fun.
