Kaisercraft Design Team - Off The Wall

Hi All,

Today I am sharing the cool new "Off The Wall"  Collection from Kaisercraft.  This is a fabulous grungy range and is just perfect for all your masculine projects.  Make sure you check out the Kaisercraft blog and Facebook site to see all the gorgeous and varied creations from our amazing Design Team.

“Extreme Gamer” Layout
Went for a mixed media grunge feel for this LO.  When I came across the Pacman pp I was inspired to create this LO of Luke who was in the zone and concentrating so intensely that he didn't evn notice me taking tis pic.  As you may have noticed I am totally addicted to the Kaisercraft texture stamps and you will usually find one or 2 of them on my backgrounds.  Here I have combined the Tiny Dot and Chevron Texture Stamps with the arrow from the Off the Wall Stamp Set, stamped in reds and blues to tie in with my colour scheme.  I even pulled out one of my favourite older stamp sets "Grunge Font" to create my title.

Other Products:  punch, mist, gesso, fineliner pen

“Birthday Wishes” Layout
The Off the Wall collection has an overall colour palette in shades of blue with black and white highlights.  For this LO I went for a monochrome feel, by layering various pp's to create the background for my photos.  To brighten up my LO I decided to use the reverse side of the Superstar Specialty Paper, then randomly stamped over the top with the numbers texture stamp.  I used the stars from the collectables pack to create another layer, which I also stamped, but you could create your own stars in any colour by using the star stamp from the matching clear stamp set.

Hi All,

It's my week to share my creations this month for Kaisercraft.  First up this week I have projects created using the fabulous "Hello Today" Collection.

"Snapshots" Layout

 This collection is great for your masculine layouts, but the neutral colours palette, make it a wonderful range to blend in with pretty much any photo.

“Altered Mail Holder” Beyond the Page Project

 I received the new Kaisercraft BTP Mail Holder in my generous parcel of goodies, as well as some of the new 12x12 Chipboard Sheets, so I decided why not add a backboard to the mail holder to hold those larger envelopes.  Rather than leave it bare, I added a few stickers and cut up the "Mod" pp to make a little calendar, which I attached the the backboard with a clip.

Other Products: clip

“You Are Loved” Card
 For my cards, instead of sticking to the neutrals in this range I thought why not add a pop of colour to the black and white pp's.  I embossed a piece of flamingo cardstock and added a couple of hot pink paper blooms to contrast with the black and white for this card.

Happy Birthday” Card
 On my second card I went for a soft green "Neptune" cardstock which I again embossed to add a little texture and matched it in with the sea breeze sparklets and a misted mini paper bloom.

Manor House Creations - Romantic Shabby Chic Card Set

Hi Ladies,

I have a set of 3 cards which were created a little while ago, but was unable to share until now as they were published with Australian Cardmaking Stamping and Papercraft Magazine Volume 20 No. 12.

I thought I would show you how you can make a few quick and easy cards with a 6″ paper pad and product from the Manor House Creations.
Here are 3 cards I created, using MHC Flowers, Ornate Frames and Flexible Words.

 Love You Forever
MHC Product Used:  Layout Pack-Cheeky, Minuettes white, Blossom-Believe, Gothic Ornate Frame-black, Flexible Word (Love black).
Other Product Used:  MME Bramble Rose 6" pad, MME mini word stickers, Kaisercraft pearls, MM ticket

On this card I altered the blossoms to give them more dimension by pinching the centre back of the flower between your fingers.  Place a little bit of tape at the back of the flower to hold the pinched section, then top with a pearl, bead or brad.


I Love You
The large white flower was altered by lightly inking the edges of the petals with a pink ink and backed with some distressed mesh ribbon for a shabby chic feel. 
 
MHC Product Used:  Letters from Paris, Minuettes pink, Gothic Ornate Frame-white,
Flexible Word (Love white).
Other Product Used:  MME Bramble Rose 6" pad, Cottage Cutz daisy vine die, Martha Stewart pansy border punch, Craft Queen mesh ribbon and washi tape, Versamagic pixie dust ink,
Lindy's Stamp Gang saltwater taffy mist

Love Is Not a Because
 I have backed the frames with contrasting pp to draw the eye.

Kaisercraft - Tropical Punch Collection

Hi Everyone,
Today I have projects to share using Kaisercraft's gorgeous new "Tropical Punch" Collection.  Totally loved creating with this collection, as it has a beautiful colour palette where you can go for the pretty Spring pinks and greens pp's or the bright Summer tropical yellow, red and orange pp's, or mix them together to create your own bold colour statement.

"Hello Beautiful" Layout
On this layout I have used pink and green pp's and Captured Moments cards to create an overall Spring feel.  The background was created by masking with the leaf template, then masking another layer over the top with the tiny hexagon template from the Quarters Stencil. I then added mist with a brush, so that it would puddle around the masked patterns and once dry I stamped over the top in green with the Moroccan texture stamp. Loved the lacy accents in this range, and of course couldn't go past fussy cutting the beautiful floral  glossy Specialty Paper to add in amongst my layers.




Kaisercraft Product: Tropical Punch - Lemonade P1640, Mocktail P1647 | Speciality Paper - Rosewater PS370 | Collectables CT808 | Sticker Sheet 12x12 SS258 | Captured Moments Cards - 6x4" Pineapple Crush CM316 | Paper Blooms Fairy Floss F640 | Clear Texture Stamp - Morocco CS191 | Template - Quarters T613 | Rhinestones - Soft Pink SB701 | Foam Dots T302
Other:  Modelling Paste, mist, ink, doily, paper flowers

"Life is Beautiful" Layout
Couldn't help myself and was drawn again to the pinks and greens, but added red accents to give it a bit more pop. The background was created by masking the Diamond Template with white crackle paste on Cardstock (cocconut weave), then masking another layer over the top with the tiny hexagons from the Quarters Template using Viva Inca Gold in mint green.  Once dry I sprayed the masking with some water, then added mist with a brush to create a watercolour effect. Finished off the background by framing it with some random punching around the edges in a pretty floral punch. To accent my photo I layered various pp's and a Captured Moments card in strips as the base for my photo and tucked in some fussy cut flowers in amongst the layers. 



Kaisercraft Product: Tropical Punch - Bubbles P1644, Mocktail P1647 | Speciality Paper - Rosewater PS370 | Captured Moments Cards - 6x4" Pineapple Crush CM316 | Pocket Stickers - Raspberry CM504 |Cardstock - Coconut CD101 | Template - Quarters T613, Diamonds T603 | Foam Dots T302
Other: mist, crackle paint, mist, metallic paste, punch

"Happy Days" Card
As you can see I was totally taken with fussy cutting the flowers on my creations, so I thought why not go with it and kept the theme going through to both my cards.  The 1st card the flowers were fussy cut and on the 2nd card I used the flower diecuts from the collectables, and cut them into smaller pieces, then layered them under the torn edges with some little lace accents and a bit of bling.  To add a touch of softness I flicked some white mist over both the cards.

Other: doily diecut, mist, lace

"Love Life" Mini Canvas
For my little reverse canvas I went for the yellow red and pink papers and diecuts, and to tie in with the lacy accents I made a border by punching some coconut cardstock with a lacy border punch to frame my canvas and make the yellow check pp pop.
