Double Trouble in Paradise with Sunkissed by Kaisercraft

Hello Merly Impressions fans,

Today I would like to share with you a fun, multi-photo, double layout that I created using the SUNKISSED Collection by Kaisercraft. I went for a fairly simple layout with few layers this time, however I add a little bit of fun mixed media. This is the perfect layout practice mixed media with because most of the back ground is covered in photos and any mistakes with it! Or if you love the background, you can simply use less photos. I have tried to capture a weekend trip to Palma, Mallorca, with this layout.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture1

To create this double layout I have used the instructions below:

  1. Take two sheets of KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK and cut into three pieces 27.5, 24 and 4 cm wide and all 24 cm high.
  2. Take the smallest piece and add a leaf pattern by inking though TROPICAL LEAVES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL, using an ink blending tool with KAISERINK PAD – FOREST and KAISERINK PAD – BLUE HAZEMIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture2
  3. Apply Distress Oxide- Lucky Clover, Distress Oxide- Mermaid Lagoon and Distress Ink- Peacock Feathers to an INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET, spray with some water. Dip paper into the ink, repeat until you are happy with how it looks.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture3
  4. Take the two larger SNOW pieces and tape together behind. Repeat steps 3 and 4 on this larger section. MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-Double Trouble in Paradise- Picture4
  5. Splatter with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – NAVY 50ML.
  6. Take two sheets of MOJITO – SUNKISSED COLLECTION and trim off the bottom strips. From the centre of one, cut out a piece to use as a 11 x 14.1 cm photo frame for later.

You are my Sunshine with Sunkissed by Kaisercraft

Hello crafty friends,

Today I would like to share with you a very vibrant yellow and black themed layout that I created using the SUNKISSED Collection by Kaisercraft. This yellow, pineapple patterned paper really caught my attention from this collection, I just had to create something quick and fun with it. This layout could be created with many fun photos but I decided to choose a beach themed one to get into the summer feel, as the weather is warming up for us here in the Northern Hemisphere.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture1

To create this layout I followed the steps below:

  1. Trim PINA COLADA – SUNKISSED COLLECTION to 29 x 29 cm. Ink the edges using an ink blending tool and Black Soot-Oxide Ink or KAISERINK PAD – LICORICE.
  2. Take MINI BACKGROUND STAMP – SCREEN and adhere to an ACRYLIC STAMPING BLOCK. Because all Distress Inks are water based, they do not work well with any acrylic stamp unless the stamp is “dirty” or sanded lightly. To get a crisp image I first ink the stamp with a non water based ink and then directly on top I use the Oxide Ink. This is so the image is crisp but will run when water is added. Stamp along bottom and in the area where you plan to adhere matted photo.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture2
  3. Apply Black Soot-Oxide Ink to an INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET, spray water on top and place layout on top in areas you would like the spattered black ink. Repeat until happy with the effect.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture3
  4. Trim KAISERCARD CANARY WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 30.5 x 30.5 cm and ink edges. Adhere PINA COLADA. Adhere a strip of KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK (29 x 1.5 cm) to the centre of the the stamped strip. Adhere bottom strip from PINEAPPLE SOUR – SUNKISSED COLLECTION to the black strip with MOUNTING FOAM TAPE.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture4
  5. Take the pineapple sheet from the PAPER PAD – SUNKISSED COLLECTION and use an ink blending tool and Distress Oxide- Black Soot to ink the whole sheet. Use a tissue or wet wipe to remove the ink from the glossy pineapples.
  6. Cut the pineapple sheet to 14.8 x 9.2 cm and frame photo (12.8 x 8.4 cm). Cut two squares from the pineapple paper 3.5 x 3.5 cm. Cut the squares in half diagonally but in opposite directions to always have the pineapples facing the right way.
  7. Cut KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 15.6 x 10 cm and adhere to photo stack. Cut two 4 x 4 cm squares of INK and then diagonally. Adhere the pineapple triangles to the INK triangles and FOAM TAPE one to each corner of the layout.
  8. Take the black striped sheet from the PAPER PAD – SUNKISSED COLLECTION, ink edges and adhere to the middle of the mixed media area of your layout. FOAM TAPE the matted photo the striped sheet.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture5
  9. Fussy cut the yellow flowers, white frangipanis, yellow butterflies and blue-green fronds from TUTTI FRUTTI – SUNKISSED COLLECTION, and its mini version in the PAPER PAD – SUNKISSED COLLECTION and PINA COLADA – SUNKISSED COLLECTION. Embellish layout with cut elements and COLLECTABLES – SUNKISSED COLLECTION.
  10. Splatter layout with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – YELLOW 50ML. Further embellish with glass domes and a title- I have used a laser cut word that I have sprayed with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – YELLOW 50ML and covered in Glossy Accents.MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture10 MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture9 MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture8 MIDT2020-03 Sunkissed Collection by Kaisercraft-You are my Sunshine- Picture7

So Blessed with Kaisercraft’s Lily and Moss Collection

Hello Lovely Craft Friends,

The LILY AND MOSS Collection is just perfect for simple, but bold and contrasting layouts such as this one I have created here. I have used a lovely black and white wedding photo as the focus and main colours of this layout. I have then added a flare of pink. I have even slipped in some of my favourite mixed media techniques. Kaisercraft’s LILY AND MOSS Collection is just perfect if you wish to use a black and white photos or if one if your favourite colours is pink!

Picture 1- So Blessed Lily and Moss Collection

To create this lovely layout, I have followed these steps:

  1. Trim CHALKY – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION to 30.5 x 30.5 cm and stamp in KAISERINK PAD – COTTON CANDY the CLEAR STAMP – LATTICE pattern randomly from the top to the bottom of the left side of the layout and horizontally through the centre.
  2. Apply Tim Holtz Oxide Ink- Black Soot to INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET and spritz with some water. Lay your layout into the liquid in a way that you introduce the black ink to the area you have stamped. It is really nice to see that the black ink takes to the pink ink and adopts the pattern of the stamp in some areas.
  3. After the ink is dry, blend 2 cm edge of KAISERINK PAD – COTTON CANDY on edges of the layout using an ink blending tool and INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET. Followed by a light edge inking in KAISERINK PAD – LICORICEPicture 2- So Blessed Lily and Moss Collection Picture 3- So Blessed Lily and Moss Collection
  4. Mix a little bit of  TEXTURE PASTE and KAISERCOLOUR PAINT – CANDY 75ML, then apply over the black inked parts of your layout, through the TINY TRIANGLES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCILPicture 4- So Blessed Lily and Moss Collection
  5. Take a black and white photo with a white border that measures 11.8 x 8.1 cm. Then mat it with a pink sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION with dimensions of 8.7 x 12.5 cm. Use MOUNTING FOAM TAPE to adhere matted photo to a piece of KAISERCARD COAL WEAVE CARDSTOCK measuring 9.4 x 13.4 cm. Add another layer with a white and black sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION with dimensions of 10.5 x 15.3 cm.
  6. Take another pink and a white and black sheet from the PAPER PAD – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION and trim to 6 x14.5 cm and layer behind the layered photo with one slightly higher and the other slightly lower. Add two strips of punched KAISERCARD COAL WEAVE CARDSTOCK 10 cm long and a few stickers from the STICKER BOOK – LILY AND MOSS COLLECTION. Adhere layered photo to the middle of left side of the page. Picture 5- So Blessed Lily and Moss Collection

My Heart is Full with Grand Bazaar

Hi fellow crafters,

I was very excited to receive the GRAND BAZAAR collection to work on for this month. As soon as I saw it, I just knew I had the perfect photos to scrap using it! I think this collection is good for many different types of projects, from love photos, to adventures and childhood memories. It also very suitable for Male layouts and all sorts of greetings cards. This collection has many colours which can be used all together in a project, or separated to focus on just 2 or 3 colours. I found that my photos suited the more selective type of colours. For example, I have focused on the blue, red and white for this layout, as it matches the clothing I am wearing in the photo. The pattern of this collection also matches the skirt and the touches of yellow and brown compliment the trees and grass in the background of the photo. I also really like how the large “love” word sticker suits the spots on the Dalmatian puppies that I am expressing loving.

My Heart is Full Photo 1

To create this layout I have followed the steps below:

  1. Take CAREFREE and cut to seperate the 4 different strips. Trim the red and blue strips to 28.5 cm in length. Remove the two similar pages from PAPER PAD – GRAND BAZAAR COLLECTION and also cut into to separate strips. This time trim the of of each of the red and blue strips to 14 cm. Ink the edges of each strip in either DISTRESS INK PAD – AGED MAHOGANY or KAISERINK PAD – DENIM.
  2. Select the larger patterned strip with the the more reddish tones. Using a CRAFT KNIFE, cut along the yellow lines of the “four petal flower” shape, from the left side. Curl the “petals” up. To create a 3d flower, use the knife again on the same pattern on the right. However, this time only cut the tips of the “petals” and curl them up. FOAM TAPE the pre-cut “flower” at a 45 degree angle, in the middle of the one of the right hand side of the strip. My Heart is Full Photo 3
  3. Take the two smaller patterned strips with a blueish tone and use the craft knife to cut the tips of all three “flowers” in both strips. Take the other strips and cut out 6 “flowers” in total and foam tape in the middle of the other ones.
    My Heart is Full Photo 2
  4. Trim KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 12 x 12 inches and ink the edges using an ink blending tool and DISTRESS INK PAD – AGED MAHOGANY. Use CLEAR STAMP – LATTICE to stamp the background in DISTRESS INK PAD – AGED MAHOGANY and KAISERINK PAD – DENIM.
    My Heart is Full Photo 4
  5. Take the 6 various sizes strips prepared earlier and adhere to your stamped cardstock as shown below:
    My Heart is Full Photo 5
  6. Take one red and one blue sheet from the PAPER PAD – GRAND BAZAAR COLLECTION and trim to 10.1 x 15 cm. Use these to frame a photo with dimensions of 9.5 x 14.5 cm
  7. Add mounted photo to the middle of the layout on left hand side. Foam tape the bottom strips from TEXTILES and PERSIAN RUG to the top and bottom of the largest patterned strip. Embellish with COLLECTABLES – GRAND BAZAAR COLLECTIONSTICKER BOOK – GRAND BAZAAR COLLECTIONCURIOS – GRAND BAZAAR COLLECTIONMINI PAPER BLOOMS – ICEBERG and RHINESTONES – YELLOW.

Exploring the Beach with Uncharted Waters

Hi Everyone,

I have created this busy, beachy, technique filled, double layout using the lovely UNCHARTED WATERS collection by Kaisercraft. This collection is gender neutral, making it perfect for all beach themed photos. I just love this collection with all the shells, beach creatures and boat related items! Since blue is my favourite colour, I love this collection for its colours too and because it is very suitable to co-ordinate in those mixed media effects. I thoroughly enjoyed incorporating oxide inks, background stamping, texture pasting, fussy-cutting, paper ripping and cheesecloth tucking techniques in this project!

Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 8

To create this layout I followed the steps below:

  1. Create a background using 2 pieces of KAISERCARD IVORY PREMIUM CARDSTOCK cut down to 30.5 x 30.5 cm and randomly stamping the ship’s  wheel from the CLEAR STAMPS – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION in KAISERINK PAD – CHOCOLATE over the layout.
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 1
  2. Use an INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET or baking paper for background inking techniques and a mix of blue Distress Oxide and RANGER DISTRESS INK PADS. Using the oxide inks first, take the darkest and smear it in a line on the craft sheet spray water on top of the ink. Take the ivory card stock and dip it in the watery ink, turn over and dry using a craft heat gun or hair dryer. Apply the rest of the ink and repeat drying. Excess ink can be removed using a wet cloth. Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 2
  3. Repeat with each colour, layer over the previous and adding the Distress Ink last
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 3
  4. Tape the two Ivory sheets with home-made background together to create a double sized layout. Cut two 6.5 cm strips of STREAK – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and adhere to the two short sides of the layout. Cut a 14 cm strip from the bottom of TIDE POOL – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION slowly and gently rip this strip in half diagonally using your hands. Attach one piece to the top left and the other to the bottom right of the layout. Take the left over strip of TIDE POOL – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and also rip it diagonally and tuck each piece under the other corner pieces to create a layered effect.
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 4
  5. Take HOOK – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and hand rip different sized pieces. Layer these pieces under the wooden sections on the top and bottom of the layout.
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 5
  6. Fussy cut the two middle ropes from SEA SHORE – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION, cut in half and foam tape next to each other over the two STREAK – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION sections of the layout, ~0.5 cm apart. Take a sheet of CHEESECLOTH GAUZE and colour with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – GOLD SHIMMER 50ML, allow to dry and then cut into strips to tuck under the ripped layers. Also use this coloured cheesecloth to matt the photos. I have used three 9.5 x 13.4 cm photos and tucked them under the ripped sections.
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 6
  7. Fussy cut the crabs and shells from OCEANIC – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and embellish layout. Embellish with CURIOS – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and stickers from the STICKER BOOK – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION
    Explore the Beach with Uncharted Waters 7
  8. Transfer the pattern of BUBBLES 6X6 DESIGNER STENCIL onto the wooden sections of the layout using TEXTURE PASTE. Further embellish layout with more stickers from the STICKER BOOK – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION and COLLECTABLES – UNCHARTED WATERS COLLECTION.

Time for a new Adventure with Mountain Air

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Emmy here today with my first post for September. The end of the summer is almost here and I have about a thousand new pictures from our outdoor adventures. And of course one of Kaisercraft’s newest collections is all about enjoying the great outdoors – Mountain Air (available at Merly Impressions online store). MI-adventure-time-web530

To assemble my background I used Kaisercard Ivory Premium Cardstock and Tree Trunks pattern paper. I cut off 0.5 cm from each side of the Ivory Cardstock, distressed its edges with Paper distresser and Piercing Tool and then I adhered it on top of the pattern paper using Mounting Foam Tape.

Then using Checker Plate Mini Designer Stencil and Distress Ink Pad – Stormy Sky I created the blue pattern. And using Clear Stamp – Grunge and Ink Pad – Bark I stamped the brown pattern onto the cardstock. Once the ink has dried I sprinkled KaiserMist Spray Ink – Antique Gold and KaiserMist Spray Ink – DenimMI-adventure-time-det-a

To create the layers under my picture, I used various pattern papers from the Paper pad and Strong and Brave pattern papers. I cut off three panels with different size, distressed their edges and arranged them under the picture as shown. The grey tire stripes I cut off from the Spare Parts pattern paper.MI-adventure-time-det-b

To decorate my page I used pre cut embellishments from the Paper pad and the Collectables pack and stickers from the Sticker SheetMI-adventure-time-det-c MI-adventure-time-det-d MI-adventure-time-det-e

For the banner next to the photograph, I used pattern papers from the Paper pad. Then I added a die cut layer (Kaisercard Sage Weave Cardstock and Decorative Die – Texture Burlap) and the sticker phrases. MI-adventure-time-det-f

As a final touch I added Epoxy Stickers – Monochrome.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post!

Reasons To Be Happy with Miss Betty

Hi everyone,

Denise here with my first layout using the lovely  Miss Betty Kaisercraft collection.

Photo 02-03-2018, 16 03 49-resized banner

This layout is featuring the Embroidered Doily die cut paper.

Embroided Doily die-cut paper - Miss Betty Collection

I used the lovely dark woodgrain paper Tapestry as the base as I thought it showed the doily die cut paper off well. I gutted it underneath the doily paper and matted my photo on it.

I used a doily form my stash underneath the matted photo then mounted it on foam tape to the right hand side of the doily in the middle.

Next I inked all around the doily with some Evergreen Bough Distress ink  very gently.

I used lots of die cuts from the Collectables Pack all around the page all raised on foam tape for dimension.

IMG_9229

IMG_9230

IMG_9231

There are so many great die cuts in the collectables pack to use I was spoilt for choice.

Next I used one of the sayings from the Sticker Sheet as my title, I mounted it on some card then on foam tape.

Finally as a finishing touch I flicked some Aqua Kaisermist on the doily  and drew some faux stitching on the woodgrain paper with a white pen.

Happy crafting everyone and I hope you’ve enjoyed todays page.
