Watercolour Cards using Kaisercraft Stamps and Dies

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great crafting week. Today I am going to share two cards that I have created using stamps, dies and papers from the Havana Nights Collection by Kaisercraft. Kaisercraft always produce wonderful stamps and dies with each collection and I wanted to share how you can use them along with some simple watercolouring into your cardmaking.

For both cards, I used the white square card pack. The dimensions for the layers I have used are

- navy mat 13cm x 13cm
- TILED (patterned paper) 12.5cm x 12.5cm 
- white strip 12.5cm x 5cm
- blue strips 12.5cm x 2cm

For this card, I used four stamps and two dies. All of the colours for the watercolouring were determined by the tiles in the paper. Simple techniques and maximum impact!

My second card has the same layout as the previous card and also includes similar elements. It uses two dies and two stamps.

As the colour palette is restricted, the elements compliment each other and work together.

Below is video tutorial demonstrating the techniques and the construction of both of these cards.

Creativation 2018

Hello everyone! This post is a little bit late. I have been meaning to write it for a few days but I have been busy getting ready for school! This year, I was fortunate to have been given the opportunity to create some layouts and cards as part of my DT work with Kaisercraft. The DT were so thrilled when we had the opportunity to view photos and videos shared by those at the show. I am so grateful to Kaisercraft for giving me the opportunity as well.

Here are some photos of the displays....

I have two cards in the range.

I have a layout here...the one with the dark green background....

I created some cards...can't see them..maybe up the top??

My layout is here!

A very big thank you to Alison Bevis who took these photos.

Some videos as well...

Thanks so much for stopping by!

DIY Book Box

Hello everyone. I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing a DIY back to school project with you which is also a group post feature over on the Kaisercraft blog. I selected a cereal box and altered it into a book box. It was decorated with products from the Documented Collection.

I added some rustic finishes to the box simply by gluing some hemp and burlap ribbon that I had in my stash. This month Kaisercraft have released this cute mini card pocket die which I used on the front of the box. I used a stamp from the Documented clear stamps collection which was of note paper and stamped it onto some left over kraft cardstock. This can be used to itemise the contents of the box, a great was to be super organised!

Simple Design to Create Cards

Happy New Year! I hope that you are having a safe and restful holiday season. The end of the year is always a whirlwind with preparations for gatherings with little free time to create, so I was so excited to find some time to use some of my Lavande papers from Meg's Garden to create two cards. My first uses some dies and flowers to create this all purpose card with a stamped sentiment. I was wanting a card that could be used for several occasions and I felt this sentiment was perfect.
I layered my papers and used foam tape for dimension. I also placed an oval die over part of the paper so that I could stamp my sentiment on it and incorporate it into my design.
My second card is a thank you card. I never seem to have enough of these cards! It is also from the same sheet of paper and was constructed in the same way.
I am really thrilled at how these cards turned out...simple design and easy to adapt for any card size and occasion.

Two Tags ~ Kaisercraft

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week, despite the heat. Today I am sharing two tags here and on the Kaisercraft blog. The challenge was to feature the alphabet. In my first tag I used an embossing folder which is part of the Documented Collection.

For my second tag, I used some of the papers and also the coordinating designer template which is available as well.
