Challenge Inspiration with Blubelle

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Emmy here with a brand new layout created for Merly Impressions’ April “Punches, Dies or Die-Cuts” challenge.

This month I have the pleasure to create with the wonderful “Blubelle” collection from Kaisercraft:

For my background I used the Kaisercard Navy Wave Cardstock and the Azure pattern paper from the Kaisercraft “Blubelle” collection. I cut and distressed the edges of the pattern paper and drew a tiny border to give more dimension to my background.

And since the challenge this month is “Punches, Dies or Die-Cuts”, I used a lot of all three of them on my page.

For the flower clusters I used Kaisercraft Paper Blooms Coral and  printed flowers from the Collectables pack. I added die cut flourishes and leaves  – I used Marianne Design dies, Kaisercard Navy Wave Cardstock and Oxford pattern paper.

I decorated some of my die cuts with Kaisercraft Self Adhesive Rhinestones Dark Blue.

To embellish my layout I used various Spellbinders dies, sentiments from the Collectables pack and large banner stickers from the Blubelle Collection Sticker Sheet 12″.

To create the colourful borders I used Martha Stewart border punch with cardstock and pattern paper, die cuts from the 6″ Paper Pad and Kaisercraft Lace Pack White.

The 12″ Sticker Sheet and the 6″ Paper Pad matching this collection, are perfect to create tailor made embellishments. I fussy cut and layered a lot of different elements from these products.

The banner and the lovely doily are from  the Collectables pack.
