"Beautiful Inside and Out"

For my take on the sketch I have rotated the sketch once to the left and used Prima's Bella Rouge" Collection and gorgeous Blue Fern chipboard, which is available instore.  Check out my list of products linked to the store at the end of this post.


 To create my background, the Belle Fleurs paper was altered using the Crafter'sWorkshop mini honeycomb stencil with Prima Art Basics Modeling Paste, then added some Lime Kaisermist splatters.  Once dry I stamped over the top with Kaisercraft Script stamp and Tea Dye Distress Ink

How delicious is this Blue Fern chippie.  I have cut this into 2 pieces and altered with Prima Art Basics - Texture Paste - White Sand.  Once dry I have coated with Viva Decor Inka Gold in Apricot for the flowers and a coat of Jade Green and Aquarmarine.  I also added some Peach Kaisermist to the flower sections then highlighted both pieces with Champagne Inka Gold.

Kaisercraft DT - Holy Night Collection

Hi All,

Today I am sharing the last of this month's new Collections from Kaisercraft called "Holy Night".  This beautiful range has a more traditional theme in subdued Christmas colours with hints of gold foil.


“Christmas Memories” LO
For this Christmas LO I went searching through old photos of the kids when they were much younger and came across this pic of the them just as they had woken up on Christmas morning. The first thing they would always go for is their big bag of Christmas lollies... YUM!! 
  I layered and roughly teared various pp’s to create my background and masked with the Stars Template using gold metallic paste, then highlighted the stars with Kindyglitz to make them sparkle.  To create the Christmas tree branches I used the Branch Decorative Die and green side of the “Frankincense” pp which I misted with Turquoise Kaisermist to recreate the pine green colour of the tree, then decorated the branches with a few altered Christmas ornament wooden flourishes. 



Kaiser Product: Holy Night - Paper P1908 Frankincense, P1909 Glory, P1910 Baby Jesus, P1913 Wise Men, P1915 Faith | CT835 Collectables | T616 Template – Stars | DD109 Decorative Die – Branch | KM105 Kaisermist – Turquoise | Wooden Flourish - FL365 December, FL449 Mini Ornaments | IP734 Ink Pad – Cherry | T303 Foam Tape | Other Product:   DMKGCR Kindy Glitz 36ml Crystalina | Metallic Medium | ink

I was drawn to the gold and white pp’s in the paper pad and they were the inspiration for the 2 cards and altered tag.  The Nesting Frames Decorative Die was used on both cards, utilising the negative space from the diecut on one of the cards.

“Joyful” Card

Kaiser Product: Holy Night – Paper P1915 Faith | PP977 6.5” Paper Pad | CT835 Collectables| DD510 Decorative Die – DD510 Nesting Frames, DD101 Lacey Borders | CD511 Card Pack C6 – White | SB774 Rhinestones – Ice Blue | T303 Foam Tape | Other Product:  ribbon | sequins | ink

Kaisercraft DT - A Touch of Gold Collection


Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing my Design Team projects created with one of the new Kaisercraft Collections for August - "A Touch of Gold".  This fun celebratory range comes with gorgeous Foil Specialty Papers and accents to add that touch of sparkle and shine to your creations!  Keep an eye out at the Kaisercraft blog and Facebook page throughout the month to see all the amazing creations from our talented Design Team.

“You Are Fabulous” LO
I love this cool pic of Luke wearing his shades at his Year 12 Sports Day and thought the colour scheme for this range with its great mix of fun patterns were just the thing for this funky masculine LO.
I started by altering my background pp with the Geo Quarters Template and yellow Kaisermist which goes perfectly with the gold tones in this collection.  I then added a stamped border with the Film Strip Edges texture stamp which I highlighted by colouring in random sections with the yellow Kaisermist.  To add a grunge feel to my LO I stamped over the masking with the Texture Stains texture stamp and the words from the matching Stamp Set, then flicked some turquoise mixed with a touch of denim Kaisermist around the stamped images. 
To add a pop of colour and contrast, I diecut the Fabulous Decorative Die in ocean cardstock as part of my title.

Kaiser Product: A Touch of Gold - Paper P1900 Razzle, P1902 Sheen, P1904 Gleam, P1905 Extravagant, P1907 Classy | CT834 Collectables | CS234 Stamp Set | CD155 Cardstock Weave – Ocean | T619 Template – Geo Quarters | Kaisermist – KM103 Yellow, KM106 Denim | Decorative Dies – DD703 Fabulous, DD300 Film Strip, DD501 Arrows | Texture Stamp – CS154 Film Edges, CS162 Texture Stains | MA522 Black Alpha Stickers | IP719 Ink Pad – Black | T303 Foam Tape | Other Product:  ink


“Smile Happiness Looks Good on You” LO
For this LO I have used some beautiful foil speciality papers.  The Doily Diecut Specialty Paper can be cut down in to several pieces so that you can use it over several LO's giving you great value for your purchase.  Here I have cut the outside ring by using my scissors to snip the inner dot circle which leaves you with a lovely postage stamp edge.
I have also used a couple of the foil papers from the 6.5" Paper Pad.  The plain gold foil pieces are perfect to create your own embellishments if used with Kaisercraft Decorative Dies. 

Kaiser Product: A Touch of Gold – Specialty Paper – PS420 Doily Diecut Foil Specialty, PS421 Pin Stripe Foil Specialty | PP976 6.5” Paper Pad |CT834 Collectables | CS234 Stamp Set | KM103 Kaisermist - Yellow | Decorative Dies - DD110 Birds and Butterflies, DD503 Butterflies, DD101 Lacey Borders | CS893 Texture Stamp – Laugh | SB713 Pearls – Pearl | IP719 Ink Pad – Black | T303 Foam Tape | Other Product:  sequins | button | doily

With its fun party theme and funky patterns, this collection is taylored made for creating a set of invitations or birthday cards!!

“18 - Let’s Celebrate” Card
 A quick and easy card created with the Paper Pad and one of the card labels from the “Lavish” pp, and to add a bit of pizzazz I altered the hanging circle border with a touch of crystalina Kindyglitz. 
Kaiser Product: A Touch of Gold – Paper 1906 Lavish | PP976 6.5” Paper Pad | ST911 Epoxy Stickers – Monochrome | CD511 Card Pack C6 – White | T303 Foam Tape | Other Product:  DMKGCR Kindy Glitz 36ml Crystalina | chipboard numbers

Kaisercraft DT - Time Machine Collection


Hi everyone,
It's a new month and Kaisercraft have released 3 fabulous new Collections.  Rather than bombard you with all my Design Team projects at once, I thought I would share them over the next week or two showcasing each collection separately.

Today I am sharing my creations with my favourite of the 3 ranges, the gorgeous “Time Machine” Collection.  This range has a steampunk feel, with cogs, gears, gadgets and clocks in delicious teal ,cream and brown tones, and with Father's Day just around the corner, it's just the thing to create a Father's Day card for that special man in your life.

 Time Machine works beautifully with masculine or feminine projects, but as I tend to be drawn to creating feminine LO's, I decided to go with a masculine theme for my projects... BUT!!  I couldn't help myself and have created a feminine LO with this gorgeous range, which will be shown in a post later in the month.

“Love This Moment” LO
An old photo of Luke with his Dad was the inspiration for this LO. 



The background “Steam Engine” pp was altered by stamping with stamps from the Time Machine Stamp Set and Sketchy Texture Stamp, then splattered around the stamping with Antique Gold and Turquoise Kaisermist. My photo was layered with cog Collectables and clocks cut from the “Clocks “ pp as well as a cog border from the Sticker Sheet.  For a finishing touch I have used the newly released Clocks Printed Tape to frame my LO, which I have torn into strips then rubbed over with a bit of Antique Gold Kaisermist using my fingertip to give the tape a sepia look.

Kaiser Product: Time Machine - Paper P1917 Clocks, P1918 Steam Engine, P1919 Mechanism, P1922 Coggler, P1924 Gadget | CT836 Collectables | CS236 Stamp Set | CS878 Sketch Texture Stamp | Kaisermist – KM102 Antique Gold , KM105 Turquoise | PT221 Printed Tape – Clocks | T331 Sanding Block | IP719 Ink Pad – Black | T303 Foam Tape | Other Product:  ink | metal charm

With Father’s Day fast approaching, this collection is just what you need to create cards for that special man in your life.  I have created 2 using the Paper Pad and Collectables, and a touch of Printed Tape and Kaisermist.  I adore the matching stamp set to this range and have used it on one of my cards.

“Happy Father’s Day” Card

Kaiser Product: Time Machine - PP978 6.5” Paper Pad | CT836 Collectables | CS236 Stamp Set | T611 Template – Diamonds | Kaisermist – KM102 Antique Gold , KM105 Turquoise | FL400 Wooden Flourish – Large Cogs | Printed Tape – PT221 Clocks, PT212 Arrows | CD511 Card Pack C6 – White | IP719 Ink Pad – Black | T303 Foam Tape

“#1 Dad” Card

Kaiser Product: Time Machine – Paper P1922 Coggler | PP978 6.5” Paper Pad | CT836 Collectables | CS236 Stamp Set | Kaisermist – KM102 Antique Gold , KM105 Turquoise | PT212 Printed Tape - Arrows | CD511 Card Pack C6 – White | T303 Foam Tape
