Take Adventures with Magenta

Hello Kaisercraft fans,

Emmy here today sharing a boyish project I created with the lovely Magenta Collection from Kaisercraft (available at Merly Impressions’ online store). I thought of making a black-and-white layout, but then I saw the red flowers and I couldn’t resist adding a bit of red colour. Luckily Kaisercraft have many additional colour-coordinating products, so I could choose from a wide range of embellishments. For my background I used Raspberry pattern paper and Rosa pattern paper. Using Collage 6×6 Designer Stencil and Texture Paste I created the white dimensional pattern. Then I cut a 16 x 30 cm stripe from the Rosa pattern paper, distressed its edges using a Paper Distresser and adhered it in the middle of the Raspberry paper.

Once everything was in place, I sprinkled Kaisermist Black on top.

I matted my picture on a slightly larger panel of Kaisercard Coal Weave Cardstock. I added a layer of Cheesecloth Gauze under it and adhered it with Mounting Foam Tape to the pattern paper.

I stamped random design on the greyish pattern paper using KaiserInk Pad – Licorice and Decorative Tape Pieces Clear Stamp. Then I stamped the flower cluster from the Clear Stamp set Blessed onto a light grey pattern paper from the Paper Pad. Once the ink has dried I fussy cut the flowers, embossed them slightly and arranged them around my picture as shown. I added also fussy cut flowers from Pink pattern paper and from the Collectables pack. The 3D red blossoms I fussy cut from a pattern paper from the Paper Pad and then I adhered them with Mounting Foam Tape on top of the stamped flowers.

Using Kaisercard Crimson Weave Cardstock, Kaisercard Coal Weave Cardstock, a hearts die and Kaisercraft Decorative Dies (Texture Diamonds) I die cut the red and black cardstock texture embellishments. For my title I used a cut-off stipe from one of the 12″ pattern papers. To adhere my title I used Mounting Foam Tape.

As a final touch I added Epoxy Stickers – Sea Breeze and Rhinestones – Black.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post!
Have a wonderful creative week and stay safe!

Happy Today layout with Paisley Days

Hello Kaisercraft fans,

Emmy here today sharing a brand new layout I’ve created with Kaisercraft’s Paisley Days collection (available at Merly Impressions’ online store). 

For my background I used Kaisercard Coal Weave Cardstock. Using Kaisercraft Distressed Dots 6×6 Designer Stencil and Texture Paste I created the white dimensional pattern. I cut four stripes from a pattern paper from the Paper Pad and a 14 x 30 cm panel from Retro pattern paper. After inking their edges with Ink Pad – Black I adhered the different layers using Mounting Foam Tape.

As a final touch I sprinkled KaiserMist Spray Ink – White on top of all layers.

I ruffled the edges of my picture using Paper Distresser and layered it on a slightly larger panel of Kaisercard Snow Weave Cardstock. Then I adhered it on top of the pattern paper with Mounting Foam Tape.

Using Decorative Dies (Double Bubble and Film Edges) and Kaisercard (Kaisercard Snow Weave Cardstock and Kaisercard Coal Weave Cardstock) I die cut different images.

To decorate my page I used pre-cut images from different pattern papers from the Paper Pad and from the Collectables pack. I arranged them around my picture and adhered them with Mounting Foam Tape. I also added stripes from washi tape.

For my title I used a fussy cut word from Daisy Chain pattern paper, which I covered with Glossy medium.

As a final touch I added Rhinestones – Black.

I hope I managed to inspire you today!

Have a wonderful creative week!
