Shaker Fun at Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope that you having a great week. Today I am sharing two projects which have been inspired by one paper design. I was really drawn to the cottages/houses on the COMBI CHRISTMAS reverse paper which is part of the Peppermint Collection this month. I fussy cut some out and used them to create a card plus two shaker ornaments.

I created a snow globe, and used the cottages as part of the scene. I kept the design fairy simple, so that if someone wanted to make these in bulk, it would be manageable.

My second use of the cottages was using them to create shaker ornaments. I created my ornaments by combining Kaisercraft nested circle dies to create a large round shape in order to create a Christmas scene. I selected trees from the collectables and used white cardstock to create a snowy hillside.

I also stamped a sentiment on the back, so these could also be used a gift tag at Christmas time.

To make these shaker ornaments, watch the tutorial below.

Favourite Adventure

Hello everyone. I hope that you are having a great week. Today I am sharing a layout that is based upon the path and the story behind the photo. My cousin's twin boys walk to day care which is very close to their home and this is the path they travel along. I have created a grungy interpretation of their walk using the papers and embellishments from the Workshop collection.
I started by using a stencil and inking it up in random places to add some texture.

I have ripped papers to create the path, and added even more grunge by adding strips of ripped papers on top. I don't glue to the edge, I leave my options open so that I can add embellishments underneath later on if I want to.
I chose elements from the collectables that represented learning, play and a bit of grunge.
I always read the quotes on the paper strips and this one was perfect. Twins have a special bond and this really connected with the photo.

If you would like to create this layout, please stop by the Kaisercraft blog where you can download the full instructions including the products I have used.

Fun With Watercolor

PAPERS: Magenta Collection – PP1071 Paper Pad, CD101 Coconut Cardstock
KC PRODUCTS: CS356 Magenta Clear Stamp, Kaiser Mist: KM125 Candy, KM122 Yellow, KM127 Turquoise, KM126 Lime, CD501 Card pack Square White, DD528 Decorative Die Nesting Heart

OTHER: Watercolour paper, Laminated Paper, Scalloped Scissors, Wink Of Stella Clear Shimmer Pen, Versafine Ink

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. Today I am sharing two cards which are part of the Magenta Collection by Kaisercraft. When I saw the stamp set, I immediately knew that I would love to create some watercoloured cards using them. I created two cards using two mediums - mists and watercolour markers, both fun to use and both producing different results. 

Apply generous drops of Kaiser Mists onto a laminated surface and then spritz it with water.
Press a piece of watercolour paper over and then dry with a heat gun. This creates a watercoloured background that can be used on its own or as a background that can be stamped upon.
You can use different mists to create different colour combinations.
Position the stamps strategically and fussy cut the images once stamped.
This technique is a great introduction to watercolouring for those who are willing to have a try!

PAPERS: Magenta Collection – PP1071 Paper Pad
KC PRODUCTS: CS356 Magenta Clear Stamp, CD510 Card Pack Square Black, SB702 Hot Pink Rhinestones

OTHER: Zig Markers, Versafine Onyx Black Ink, Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock

My second card features watercolour markers to showcase the floral stamps.

I selected these images from the stamp set and coloured them in using a light and a dark coloured maker to add some definition. I also chose dark papers to add a contrast with my flowers as I wanted them to stand out.

Watercolour is a great technique to use and can be applied using markers as well as mists.

If you decide to try these techniques, be sure to share them on the Kaisercraft Corner Facebook Group  or tag #kaisergallery on Instagram.
