Documented Creative Kit DT Share

Hello lovelies.. today I wanted to share my DT projects for the January Creative Kit Club using the amazing Kaisercraft Documented collection. 

The kit included some fun mixed media products meaning I could make a nice messy layout .. and I love love love making a mess..

The other Kaisercraft collection was Open Road and we snuck in a couple of papers into this kit as they were too hard to resist... like the rusty fence paper!

We also received a couple stamp sets in the kit and this open alphabet and number stamp was just too cool. I splattered the background with the green and painted each letter/number individually. 

Have fun xx Kasia

Whimsy Bunnies Stamp & Colour Kit

Hello lovelies.. I just wanted to share my Design Team projects for the Uniquely Creative Whimsy Bunnies Stamp & Colour Kit. 

I loved colouring these little guys so much. 

The rag doll bunny would have to be my most favourite as my little girl had a very similar little doll when she was teeny tiny. 

These little bunnies are just the cutest and the teeny tiny tea party set can be used with so many other critters. 

I was super excited about the Spring Bouquet stamp set as it I got to turn my doodles into a stamp and seeing everyone colouring my doodles is super super cool. 

Hope I have inspired you to get your colour on.

Wandering Ivy Creative Kit Club DT Share

Hi Guys.. just popping in to share my DT projects for the Wandering Ivy Creative Kit Club. 

My first layout focussed on the Sketchy Feather Trio die I designed for Uniquely Creative. I loved these feathers so much and the rose gold washi tape that I just went nuts and cut out a whole bundle of them. 

My second layout focussed on the incredible florals in this collection. I don't often get drawn to florals but this colour and the boldness of these were too gorgeous to pass up.

I had some feathers left over from my first layout and popped this card together. Its a clean & simple design that can be replicated over and over with various colour ways.

My second card was created using the left over florals I fussy cut for my floral layout. I loved playing with these florals this month and really could have kept on going with these.

Over and out from me.. ps. don't forget to have fun

Hello again lovelies.. I'm here today with a set of clean & simple cards created with the Colour Artist InksColour Embossing Powder & Uniquely Creative dies.

I heard on the grape vine a little while ago that the lovely Mel Struths had a thing for lightbulbs so was super excited when I got to turn my little lightbulb doodles into dies for Uniquely Creative. I had a million Colour Blast projects in mind when creating these dies and couldn't wait for them to be made. 

To celebrate the release of these dies, Uniquely Creative is giving away a set of the Lightbulb dies & the Scripty Sunshine die & a couple packs of Embellies too. For all the info how to enter read the info at the bottom of the email.

Now, lets get onto making some cards...   

For the backgrounds I cut down some watercolour paper to 5" x 7" and taped them down to a hardwood board with low tack masking tape. I wet down the paper with a wide brush and then dropped in little amounts of the Colour Artist Inks with a round paintbrush. 

I let each layer dry completely (you can speed up the process with a heat tool) and then wet down the surface again and dropped in more colour. 

For the greens & blues I used a combination of the CitrusLimeGrassMermaid & Oasis Colour Artist Inks. 

I did the same process here with three layers and while the last layer was still wet I sprinkled on some salt crystals and let them sit for a good few hours.. I wasn't patient enough to let them sit overnight, but if you are the effects would be a little more dramatic than on my background. 

For the above card I used a combination of the SpiceSunburntCiderBarleySlipper & Berry Colour Artist Inks. 

I then die cut some lightbulbs, and sentiments from white cardstock and embossed them 3 times with the Bling & Stormy Weather Colour Embossing Powder, to get a lovely thick embossed effect. Don't forget to give your embossing powder a little shake before using it so that the embossing powder and sparkle mix well. 

I then created three 4.25" x 5.5" card bases, cut down a piece of glitter cardstock to 4" x 5.25" and die cut my coloured backgrounds with a cross stitch rectangle die and stacked these on top of one another to create the background for my cards. 

I then bundled up some silver and gold thread to layer under the sentiments and put together my cards. 

I also added a sprinkling of rhinestones and pearls around the sentiments to add a bit more texture and ground the sentiment a little more. 

This background was created in the same way but using the SpiceCider & Citrus Colour Artist Inks.

Gold Leaf Light-Up Frame

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to be an X-Press It Creator and I may have squeeled a little (or a lot). I use X-Press It products on an everyday basis already, whether it be the Double Sided Tape Runner or Foam Squares in card making or the X-Press It Blending Card for Copic colouring, so to be a creator for a brand I love is an absolute honour. 

Today I am sharing a little frame I made using the X-Press It Gold and Silver Metal Leaf. 

I grabbed a white frame I had sitting around and bought a wire with little LED lights from Kmart. 

The Metal Leaf comes in Gold, Silver and Copper but today I focussed mainly on the Gold, with a little bit of Silver.

I painted the frame with the X-Press It Gold Size using an old paintbrush and let it sit for about 10 minutes. When nice and tacky I added the gold leaf. 

I wanted a distressed look so I very lightly roughed up the gold metal leaf and pressed it onto the frame. 

I then added some silver metal leaf to fill in the spaces. 

I brushed off the loose leaf with a dry paintbrush and then repeated the above steps again to fill in the frame. 

I love that X-Press It has so many different tapes for so many different applications.

For adhering paper to paper like above I alway go for the Blue Double Sided Tape, and because it comes in so many widths it makes it so versatile also. 

I die cut a heap of little fir trees from the same white cardstock and adhered the top back trees using the X-Press It Clear Gel Glue. 

The trees in the foreground were adhered using the X-Press It Foam Mounting Tape to give some added dimension. 

I filled the bottom part of the frame with the little lights and adhered the back using the X-Press It High Tack Double Sided Tape as this needed to stay firmly adhered. 

You can now either leave the frame nice and simple and sit it on the mantle or add some baubles to the side to make it more Christmassy.

Hope you give Gold Metal Leafing a go.. its so much fun with such a beautiful unique finish.
