You Are So Loved with Misty Mountains

Hello,

Karen here with the last of my April pages using  the purpleicious  Misty Mountains Kaisercraft range.

So Loved BannerFor this page I wanted to utalise the triangles on several of the papers to make hexagons to scatter around my page.

I cut ½ in from the top and one side of the reverse side of the Bokka paper.  I then added this to the top of the reverse of Light Leak.   Next, using the white lines as a guide, I cut a large hexagon from the reverse of Agate.

So Loved Detail 1I cut more hexagons from the reverse of Eclipse and from the corresponding paper from the paper pack, which has the triangles printed in a lovely, shiny rose gold, and scattered these about my page in clusters of three.

So Loved Detail 3Using two more pages from the paper pack I mounted my photo and added this to my page.  My title was fussy cut from the Be You Quotes foil paper.  To finish I added some pieces from the Collectables pack, Wine gems and some Grape Paper Blooms.

So Loved Detail 3Looking forward to showing you my projects next month. 29695287_10211771445865531_2251198259858808640_n 21432896_10211771445905532_5537441294320168696_n

Twinchies with Misty Mountains

Hello everyone,

Something a bit different today with these little Twinchies using the Misty Mountains collection.

IMG_0135-resizedbanner

My brief was to make a 3d project so I decided to do some of these little squares. These particular ones are two inches square hence them being called Twinchies.

IMG_0119

First off I covered each one of them with a paper from the 6×6 pad

IMG_0121

Next I stamped some butterflies from the ‘Butterflies’ stamp onto some of the papers,cut them out then mounted them on to the covered twinchies.

I die cut various little flowers and leaves and used stickers from the Sticker Sheet and Collectables all mounted on to foam tape to embellish them together with some wine  and lilac gems

To finish off I dotted around some of the edges with a white pen, and used an Orchid mini ink pad to edge round them all.

I really enjoyed doing these for a change, they come together quite quickly and are really fun to do

Beautiful with Misty Mountains

Hello,

Karen here with second of my April pages using  Misty Mountains Kaisercraft collection .  I can’t get enough of this range as each and every sheet is so pretty.

BeautifulFor this page I featured the Damask Mini Stencil, Paint Strokes Stamp, Orchid Ink Pad and Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture Paste.

I cut ½ in from the top and one side of the Marbled paper.  I then used the Damask Mini Stencil and Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture Paste in four areas of the paper.  Once this was dried I gave it a light coat of Gesso and wiped over the areas with the texture paste with a baby wipe to reveal the colour of the paper below.  As I thought this worked in the same way as transparent embossing powder but with less faff!

Detail 1Once the Gesso had dried I stamped with the Paint Strokes Stamp and  Orchid Ink Pad across the texture paste areas but in the opposite direction.  I also ‘dabbed’ the ink pad through the stencil in areas.

Detail 2I cut a 5¾ x 7¾ rectangle from a piece of Lilac Weave Cardstock  and adhered the Marbled paper to the centre of the remaining piece.

Detail 4Cut branding strips from two of your papers and the Devine paper to add around the outside of your page.

To complete my page I added two pieces of paper from the Misty Mountain Paper Pad , stuck together and trimmed to 6½ x 5¼, to the piece of Lilac card from  above and then my photo was added to this.  I also cut some of the phrases from the Misty Mountain Paper Pad to add, with some phrases and the word ‘beautiful from the Collectables pack, at the top right and bottom left of my page.

Looking forward to showing you my next project

# Blessed with Misty Mountains

Hi everyone,

Denise here with my second layout using the  Misty Mountains Kaisercraft collection.

IMG_9813-resize banner

For this layout I used one of the embossing folders from the collection Triangle Trees.

Firstly I took a sheet of Lilac Weave card, cut it down then placed it inside the embossing folder.

IMG_9675

I ran it through the die cutting machine.

IMG_9677 IMG_9799

I distressed the edges with a distressing tool.Next I used a Tim Holtz stencil and some White Texture Paste across the middle of a piece of Coconut Weave card.

IMG_9800So now to put it all together. I used the white card as my base. I used some torn strips of 12 x 12  papers layered on each other placed at the bottom and top of the layout. I also took the large flowers from the Sticker Sheet and placed underneath the strips.IMG_9813I tucked some of the die cuts from the Collectables pack under the strips. I used the embossed lilac card pieces as mats for my photo.IMG_9812I also used some Kaisermist to flick around the layout at the end.

Lots of collectables were scattered around to finish off. IMG_9813I hope you like this collection as much as I have liked working with it.

Loved & Blessed with Misty Mountains

Hello,

Karen here with my first April page using the utterly gorgeous Misty Mountains range.  How beautiful are the papers in this collection with all the stunning purple and rust hues?

Loved with Banner

For this page I featured the Hexagon die cut paper.  First I cut a  ¾ in frame from a piece of Moody and mounted a piece of white card, that had been trimmed down to 11½  in square, onto the top of that.

I drew a 1 in border around the  Hexagon die cut paper and cut this out.  Then the hexagon frame was backed with the piece of Moody and the excess trimmed away.  I only adhered the frame at the outer edge so that I would be able to tuck flowers underneath.

29684056_10211771443185464_912341331783306672_n

I trimmed a piece of the light coloured marbled paper, from the 6½ x 6½ paper pad to 5 ins square and added my photo to this, which was then tucked under the top left of my hexagonal frame.

Next I used flowers from the sticker sheet and Collectables pack and fussy cut some flowers from the 6½ x 6½ paper pad which were all added to the right side of my frame.

To finish I added a title, a couple of tags and some phrases all from the Collectables pack.

Live Life & Choose Happy with Misty Mountains

Morning everyone,

Denise here with my first layout using the lovely Misty Mountains Kaisercraft collection.

IMG_9668-bannerThis is a beautiful purple based collection with lilacs and hints of rust and pink.

My focus was using the Hexagon Die Cut paper which has an amazing marble finish to it.

Hexagon die-cut paper - Misty Mountains CollectionI decided to highlight it by using the  lovely floral side of Sunset which I cut down on two adjacent sides by 1/4 of an inch then gutted the middle in a rough hexagon shape, distressed the edges with a distressing tool then placed the marble die cut paper over the gutted piece. These were placed on to a 12 x 12 piece of Coconut Weave Kaisercard.

Next I drew a hexagon shape slightly smaller than the die cut paper on the scenic side of the paper then distressed the edges.

IMG_9669I matted my photo on to some of the papers from the 6.5 x 6.5  paper pad. IMG_9668Now for some fussy cutting ! the Agate paper has a geometric pattern on the back so I cut some little hexagon shapes out .

Agate - Misty Mountains Collection

These were tucked around the outsides of the photo after layering lots of die cuts from the Collectables Pack around the layout.

IMG_9671 IMG_9673These were layered with some foam tape .

Finally some gems were dotted around to finish off.

Check back soon for some more inspiration from the team with this month’s lovely collections.
