Let’s Have a Look at Kaisercraft Dies

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Storage always seems to be an issue for me, how about you?  Are you always looking for that perfect storage solution to easily find something, especially your dies?  I hate opening a package and having all my dies fall all over the place.  Kaisercraft seems to come up with a unique solution.

Kaisercraft Dies-003

I bet you don’t notice much difference here do you?  Just a very large (4.25″ x 6.5″) flourish die.  But do you notice the package is standing vertical and  the dies stays in place.  That is due to a large magnetic sheet on the inside of the folder.

Kaisercraft Dies-005

The magnetic sheet is the size of your die(s) and holds them snugly in place whether on your desk as you’re using them, or tucked quietly away waiting for the next great craft project.  The whole folder comes in a protective hard plastic sleeve.

Kaisercraft Dies-006

I prefer to use Sizzix’s Magnetic Platform when I run my dies through my Sizzix Big Shot.  The magnetic system within the platform is super strong and holds your dies snugly in place as they pass through the die cutting machine.  These are the 6″ x 4″ and 3″ x 4″ rectangular dies.  They come with the bonus of the file folder tab and the word banner.  Love those two additions.

The last die set I got to play with were the Filmstrip, words (smile and love) and heart die.  I’ve never had a filmstrip die and loved how it cut and looked.  I used a glitter paper here that is heavier than regular decorative cardstock and you can see it cut beautifully.  You can also use these metal dies on foil, regular cardstock and paper.  I bet they might even cut lightweight felt.

I had fun sharing my new dies with you today and hope you’ll check out whole selection of Kaisercraft Dies in the Cut at Home store today.  I must mention I did pull out my Spellbinder’s Tool ‘n One to remove all those little bits from the edge of the filmstrip, easy-peasy, so much less aggravation.  Come join me now on the video so you can see these new dies up close and personal.

Supplies I used from the Store:

DD300: Kaisercraft Film Strip Die
DD701: Kaisercraft Rectangles Dies
DD702 Kaisercraft Large Florish
T001: Spellbinders Tool ‘n One

Kaisercraft Teeny Tiny Mini Album in a Designer Box

Monday, July 7th, 2014

I’m not a hoarder, really I’m not, but when I see some cute packaging, like unique envelopes that come in the mail, I just have to keep them for inspiration.  Or how about those nice thick round coasters they put under your drinks, or the nifty box that your gift came in.  All these ‘throw away’ items can make wonderful patterns for your projects.  A while back a crafty friend was going to Estate sales and ran across these old Cigarollo boxes that had metal tins inside, She sent me some thinking I’d want to alter the tins, which I do, but the box, oh how I loved the box.  It had the neatest flap that folded over the top and tucked into the inside.

Decorated Graphic 45 Gift Tags

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Summer celebrations are here, and I have been in serious need of gift tags for all those birthday presents and little girl parties we are invited to. I have had in my stash a package of AMAZING Graphic 45 Classic Kraft tags that been begging to be used.  In my previous post, I have made some cards using Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack, and what a better way to have coordinating tags and cards.

I made 4 gorgeous tags in less than 20 minutes.

Let’s get started, the tutorial shows how to make one tag. However you can simply follow the same step multiple times and make an “assembly line” of tags.

1.  Cut pre-printed tag from Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack.

2. Stamp sentiment “It’s a beautiful day!” from JustRite Stampers Cupcake celebrations using different color ink for each word.

3.  Adhere stamped tag to Graphic 45 Classic Kraft tag.

4. Decorate using arrow stickers included in the Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack.

5. Place enamel dot and/or decorative gem.

6. Tie a Ribbon

Kaisercraft’s Mister Fox Manly Card

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

I often hear from other crafters the same sentiment I feel, it’s hard to make a manly card.  Well I almost accomplished it today but at the last minute I had to add a bow and some bling.  One little bow and one little piece of bling doesn’t deter from manly does it??

P1130247

I used Kaisercraft‘s Mister Fox 6 1/2″ square pad to make this card.  I love Kaisercraft pads, they always have punch out die cuts in the back.  This is a standard A2 card, 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.  I double matted the front, used a die cut sentiment which I mounted on a scrap of black.  I love double mounting the die cuts it makes them pop so much more. I simply place the die cut on the scrap of black and fussy cut around the edge leaving about an 1/8th” of black showing.

P1130249

The strip with the numbers is cut from the decorative paper and then crimped through my Fiskars crimper.  I have this in my crafty closet and forget to use it. It gives the paper such dimension, I must use it more often!  I added the bow cut from Sizzix 3D Ribbon die.  Another item I’d forgotten I had.  I love these little bows they’re the perfect size for cards or scrapbook pages.  I think I need to die cut a bunch of them, glue them together and have on hand, I’d use them a lot more that way.  The polka dot paper was perfect especially when I added the little black Blossom from Kaisercraft.  That’s a manly blossom mind you :-)

For the inside sentiment I used Penny Black‘s Special Wishes clear stamp collection and stamped it with a black embossing powder on a decorative piece. I used the negative space from the puncP1130251-001hed out die to trace the shape for my inside piece.  Works great!  I slit the sides with a little punch I’d found at a garage sale for 25 cents!  If you don’t have a punch like this you could use your crafty knife to cut the slits.  The ribbon is a strip of paper inked on both sides with Black Soot distress ink from Tim Holtz.

Check out my video for the step-by-step process on how to make this card.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Doodled Die Cut Cards Using Spellbinder In’Spire Caged

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

PicShells1

 

Today I want to share my doodling with you.  I’ve found it’s a fun pastime and often I’m surprised at how well the doodling turns out.  I had watched a fellow YouTuber doodle flowers and then make them into cards.  I couldn’t find any flower stamps that would work but I did find Spellbinders in’spire Caged die, and it was a great size to divide into sections and doodle.

I’ll show you the step by step for the one on the left in the video plus I’ll share still photos of all the cards shown along with one extra one to give you a little inspiration.

This is a simple process tP1130176o create the cards I’m showing you.  I die cut the in’spire die from American Crafts white 90# cardstock and removed the die.  Next I embossed the card base front with Sizzix Retro CirP1130178cles embossing folder. From the die cut caged dress I removed the lower middle, ‘the cage’ and traced the dress onto a plain piece of white cardstock with a fine tip Micron black pen.  I drew partitions throughout the dress and then filled each section with my doodling.

The next step is to mount the doodled dress to the back of the card front aligning the dress with the opening.  Of course this leaves you with a fine mess on the inside of the card.  Easily solved, cut a mat that will fit on the back leaving 1/4″ between the mat and the edges of the card.  I used decorative paper from Kaisercraft‘s Storyteller 6 1/2″ square pad. These are great paper pads, they not only come with the designer papers but also die cuts and specialty papers which include edging strips.  A great value for your pennies.   By adding a couple of the mats, a border and some tea-dyed seam binding you’ve finished the inside of the card.  And tell me now, would you realize the left side looked ucky before that mat was put down, looks like it belongs huh?

This card is a standard A2 size, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  I’ll also show you two note size 4 1/4″ square (shown in the large photo above) in the video photos.  I wanted to mention another styling tip I gleaned online this week.  On the smaller cards above I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen and Faber-Castell black Gelato to create a color wash.  Wow!  I love this technique, thank you YouTube crafter for sharing this with us.  You simply swipe your Gelato across the surface you’re wanting to color and then brush it into shape with the Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.  If you don’t have Wink of Stella experiment with some Perfect Pearls and a water pen and see what you come up with.

So crafty friends, join me on the video and in the mean time Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

JustRite Stampers Coffee Cup Cards

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

P1130067

JustRite Stampers designs the most versatile dies and stamps, I’ve used several of them on today’s cards.  I stamped the JustRite Coffee Cup Stamp on Stratmore Watercolor Paper.  This is a nice 90# weight (190 gsm) paper and wonderful for a card base.   I double matted the coffee accent with papers from Kaisercraft’s Storyteller 6 1/2″ paper pad and added flourishes top and bottom from  Marianne Designs Vintage Swirls to finish off the card front.  Oh yes, I used my Corner Chomper to add a decorated corner edge all around.

P1130068

The stamped image was colored using my water brush and various Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used JustRite’s Vintage Labels Five Dies to triple cut the stamped and colored coffee cup image.  By using all but the smallest die you come out with 3 layers to add a great dimensional accent to the card front.

P1130069

Inside has as much going on as the outside, I love having a finished inside to my cards.  I used JustRite’s Vintage Labels Six Dies to cut the pink mat and then stamped my sentiment (from Penny Black’s Special Wishes Stamps Set) on the watercolor paper and cut it with another die from the Vintage Labels Six Dies.  Adding a lovely flourish from Marianne Designs Vintage Swirls dies just adds the right amount of ta-da to the inside.  To complete the inside I used the negative space that was left when I die cut the flourish and pounced some pink ColorBox chalk ink through the cutout (my own home made stencil!). Because the flourishes were cut with the watercolor paper they are sturdy and will provide many stencil uses for future cards.

This weeks video will walk you step by step on how to create this card and also show you how to add ink to your Gold Spellbinders dies to incorporate a unique stamped effect when you cut your die.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
