Kaisercraft DT- October - Cute Christmas, Whimsical Fairies and Shabby Chic Florals

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my October post with this month’s 3 new gorgeous releases from Kaisercraft. We have Holly Jolly which is a fun and fabulous Christmas collection, a gorgeous shabby chic floral collection called Ma Cherie and last but definitely not least Fairy Dust, a pretty and whimsical fairy collection in beautiful aquas and mauves.

To start I have a LO, card and  BTP projects created with the gorgeous “Ma Cherie” range.  For those of you who like a rustic shabby chic feel to your projects, this is the collection for you, with beautiful florals, damasks and weathered pp’s in soft pinks, greys and cream with touches of black and burgundy.

“I Love You to the Moon and Back”

For this LO I chose the pink and burgundy shades from the range and added a touch of the golden brown to tie in with the wooden flourishes.  The background “Glamour” pp was stamped with the vintage fence texture stamp then flicked with antique bronze Kaisermist and a touch of burgundy mist. Over the stamped area I applied the Stained Glass decorative die, which I cut into several pieces, making sure they would still be visible after adding my layered elements.
I framed my photo with collectables, stickers and fussy cut elements layered in with the cranberry paper blooms which I pulled apart and one of the pretty lace doilies.  To finish off I distressed and teared a few of my background edges and backed with the golden brown “Fine” pp.

The new Fairy Dust collection is so pretty and just perfect for a gorgeous girly page or card for the fairy princess in your family.

“Dream Magic Believe” 

I adore the aqua, mauve and white colour palette of this beautiful collection… so fresh and oh so pretty!!
Created a soft and dreamy LO by highlighting the mauves and aqua pp’s with white accents, flowers and masking.  I altered the paper blooms by removing the centres and replacing with stamens.  You can reuse the centre flower as a rosebud.

“Butterfly” Card

I used the new Framed Butterfly Embossing Folder to create this sweet card, by embossing in 3 different pp’s from the Paper Pad.  I sanded back the base to highlight the embossing, then cut out and sanded the butterflies from the other 2 pp’s, which I layered with foam tape to create dimension.  The clear stickers worked beautifully with the papers… I used one of the Butterflies which I adhered to white cardstock and fussy cut, as well as using the Birthday Wishes greetings which I cut up into smaller sections to fit my card.

Holly Jolly Collection is a cute and fun Christmas range in crisp and fresh traditional Christmas colours with black and white accents to make the colours pop!!

“Christmas Advent House” BTP

My first project with this cute Collection is a Christmas Advent House which I am giving to my nephew’s newborn son for his first Christmas.  The Kaisercraft BTP Advent Calendars are well worth the effort and make a wonderful gift to delight children of all ages!!

I cut the centre of the Specialty Diecut for my centrepiece and kept the scalloped frame from the diecut to use on my LO.  The large tree title diecut was cut from the pp’s using my Silhouette Cameo machine.
The main sections of the Advent House are covered in pp’s and the little drawers were painted white then the fronts were covered with papers from the Paper Pad as I like that the patterns were smaller. 
Kaisercraft no longer stock the ebony alpha stickers, so I inked the white stickers with the black ink pad to make them pop.
To decorate the roof I arranged a cluster of Collectables. Which I attached with foam tape to create a little dimension.

 “Bring on the Merry”
Love this fun photo of Brittany with Santa, which was a perfect match for this fabulous Collection.  I used the scalloped frame which I kept from the Diecut Specialty Paper to border my pp. The layers were created by using the fabulous new Mistletoe Kisses Captured Moments Kit, which comes with collectables, acetate frames and 4x6 and 3x4 captured moments cards.  I added a couple of the matching stickers and collectables, but there are more than enough cards and embellishments to create multiple LO’s and cards by teaming with cardstock or the matching pp’s.

Once I was happy with the layers, I softened the edges with gesso, then once dry I stamped around all the edges in black archival ink with Edges and Triangles Texture Stamps as well as the cute snowflake stamp from the matching Stamp Set.  I added some splotches of Turquoise Kaisermist, which I softened by blotting the mist with paper towel, then lightly tapped my paintbrush with Red Kaisermist for tiny speckled flicks. Finish off with a couple of red sparklets to add a little Christmas twinkle.
