Paint Pouring with POP Paint.

posted in: Chiswick, Techniques | 0

Have you caught onto the new craze of Paint Pouring? Well I simply couldn’t resist the temptation of creating with colour.
Naturally I wanted to experiment with POP Paint from Chiswick to see how the paint would work with pouring – and I wasn’t disappointed.detail3

Hop on over to the Chiswick Blog here to see how i created my poured canvas using POP Paint.

Hide and Seek layered Layout by Jowilna Nolte

Welcome to today’s blog post. Are you loving the new ranges this month as much as we do?
Today I am sharing a fun layout with you using the Hide and Seek range… perfect for those little people in our lives.
Apart from the cute little critters I am simply in love with the beautiful color palette of this range.JN_myboy_layout

I really wanted to include some of the beautiful feathers from the range into my layout, but the stamp set was a bit small.
So I used a feather image from the internet (free) and printed it onto vellum in grey ink on my inkjet printer.
Immediately as it came out the printer and while the ink is still wet I add white embossing powder and heat it with my hat gun for  a beautifully embossed feather.

JN_detail1

JN_detail2

Elements from my collectables pack create a beautiful cluster combined with stamping in navy blue.

JN_detail4

Extra cut out animals line the bottom edge of the background keeping the bear company.

JN_detail5

I used foam tape to raise some of the cut out elements and leaves for dimension. Tucked underneath the cluster of leaves is some thread.

JN_detail6

Until next time – have fun with this gorgeous range.

3D Dream Big Frame Decor by Jowilna Nolte

On the Kaisercraft blog today with a home decor frame using the Hide and seek range.
I created this fun dimensional frame using this gorgeous range – Hide and Seek. Perfect for little girls and boys to insert treasures into the frame
adding to the dimensional look.JN_roomdecor_main

The little fox head stamp was coloured using Metallic Gel Pens and a layer of dimensional glaze added as a finishing touch.

JN_2

Stamping directly onto the background below and above a vinyl sentiment cut on my Silhouette machine.

JN_1

The leaves arrange on top of each other using a 3D silicone adhesive to keep the dimension.

I love how this frame turned out – perfect to make any room a magical place.

Beautiful Handmade Foil Card.

You can create some amazing effects with the GoPress and Foil. Add some additional details to the foiling for an even more stunning effect!
For this card, I added some inking on top of the foiling with some amazing results.
AD3_Card_main

step 1 -Heat the Curling Motif Stamp in the GoPress and Foil.

AD3_Card_step1

step 2 – Once hot, add the green foil, cardstock and a shim. Roll the platform through the GoCut and Emboss.

AD3_Card_step3

step 3 – Remove the cardstock from the platform to reveal the hot foiled image.

AD3_Card_step4

step 4 – Stamp some wording onto a strip of cardstock using VersaFine Clair ink in brown. Trim the sentiment to fit onto the card.

AD3_Card_step5

step 5 – To add colour to my background, I misted the foiled piece with water and then sprinkled it with Walnut ink crystals and then misted again with water. Leave the ink to dry.

AD3_Card_detail4

Trim the background to fit onto the front of a folded card. Add your stamped sentiment to the middle of the foiled image. Finish off the card with an inked chipboard heart.

The inking on top of the foiling looks amazing. You could also ink before foiling the card and it will also look great. The foiled image creates a beautiful home for the sentiment to sit on.

POP Paint transformations in 5 minutes.

posted in: Chiswick, Techniques | 0

I love how you can practically transform and change the look of anything with POP Paint.
Even better when it takes something pretty and turn it into something amazing.
I had this little gifted bunny in all white, but just thought he would look a lot classier and funky in a bit of a black chalk board effect.
Because lets face it everything looks better in black chalk board.Painted bunny_main

Hop on over to the Chiswick Blog to see how easy it is. And don’t forget to check out the amazing colours in the range.

For this card I used the School Days Stamp Set. I used the sentiment stamped acorss the background in Black VersaFine Clair repeatedly with only
1 sentiment stamped in a different colour to make it stand out.
The circle element was stamped on a Rose coloured circle, and my star inked in VersaFine Clair as well.
A bright pink strip coloured with the VersaFine Clair runs across the top section of the card.

For my card I used a combination of VersaFine Clair ink to create a bright and beautiful background.
On top of my background I stamped the fun pattern from the Totally Stamp Set in Black VersaFine Clair.
Layered on top is the simple sentiment finished off with the paint swash detail.

Precious_hop_JN_Main
Such an amazing and versatile stamp set filled with loads of stamps to create a ton of sentiments.
I love basic and versatile stamp sets like these that can be used in a myriad of ways – and these sets are of an amazing quality.

Stenciled Celebration Cards.

POPcards_detail5
I absolutely love creating paper projects using my POP paints. This range of paints is truly so versatile and with the new bright and vibrant colours you can’t go wrong.
Today I created some vibrant celebration cards that can be used for birthdays and other special occasions.
POPcards_main
step 1 – Stamp your sentiments from the Chiswick stamp set onto white cardstock using permanent black ink like StazOn or VersaFine. Trim the sentiments to the size you need.
POPcards_step1
step 2 – On your craft sheet add a small amount of texture paste and POP paint in Burst.
POPcards_step2
step 3 – Mix the paint and texture paste together to give you a nice thick consistency of coloured paste.
POPcards_step3
step 4 – Create a coloured background. I used a variety of paints and inks to create a colourful mixed media background.
Stencil a pattern on top of the coloured background using the orange texture paste mixture.
POPcards_step4
step 5 – Leave the paste to dry completely. Adhere the stenciled background piece to a folded card.
Stamp flowers onto white cardstock and use some of your watered down Burst paint to paint the flowers.
Adhere the flowers and sentiment to the card and finish off with sewing and a few diamante.
POPcards_detail1
And a second version using some of my Haze paint combined with watercolour paint to create a purple flower.
POPcards_detail3
POPcards_2
And in a few minutes I created a couple of different cards using the same supplies – multitasking and creating a range of the same cards all at the same time really saves time and
you can build up quite a nice stash of cards ready to go at any moment.
