Kaisercraft Documented Layout with hints of colour by Jowilna Nolte

Hi everyone, Jowilna here on the blog today sharing a Documented layout with a hint of colour. I simply love this range but wanted to add a touch of colour.

I started off creating my mixed media inked background using re-inkers.
The effect left a hint of cream, yellow, a beautiful grey and even some blue and green colours visible once the ink had dried.

A variety of Collectables elements added the yellow tones and for the blue/green I added some scrunched up thread under my photo.
This multicoloured thread gave me the interest and hint of colour I craved.

A couple of coloured splats offers the accent colours support and makes for a nice detail.

Mini Typography stenciled detail works well on the background. I could have added the stenciled details in a colour come to think of it.
It just shows you how versatile this range is – perfect for everyday moments, school days, vintage, heritage and boys.

Shimmering Tsukineko Delicata, Beautiful Memories.

posted in: Layouts | 3

Tsukineko Delicata is the latest generation of metallic inkpad. Remarkably true and bright, it outshines other inkpads and provides stamping results that resemble the true effects of gold and silver leafing without the mess. Yes you heard me, without the mess of using actual foil you can achieve the look of those gorgeous metals in a few easy steps.

These inkpads feature a substantially raised inkpad surface to accommodate even the largest stamps without interference from the inkpad case. A Water-based, acid-free and archival ink that is perfect for cardmakers and scrapbookers and any one just feeling the need to add some bling to their creative life.

This truly is a remarkable ink pad that can stand on its own but combined with other inks will shine even brighter.

In all my years of stamping and using inks I have never come across another ink that truly shimmers and shines like Delicata.

And of course it would be great for the holidays but also for year-round bling.

Characteristics

  • Pigment ink
  • Acid Free
  • Archival
  • Best left to dry naturally to bring out the shimmer

Here’s how I used Delicata to create this gorgeous shining layout.

Delicata Copper

I used the copper re-inker to create a die-cut background. Squeeze a small amount of re-inker onto an old credit card or applicator tool like the lift-off tool and then drag the ink across plain cardstock for an even layer of metallic. Leave the ink to dry naturally. Once dry, use a Kaisercraft die cut and cut out the image out of the inked cardstock piece.

Delicata Black

Use your ink pad and lightly in a circular movement add ink to cardstock using the direct to paper technique to add Black Shimmer to the cardstock. Leave to dry naturally – (heat setting seems to take away some of the beautiful and incredible shine).

Tsukineko-Delicata-Golden

Use Golden Glitz Delicata and a stencil and ink a pattern onto the background cardstock. Use a single colour or layer different colours over each other using a clean sponge dauber for each colour to avoid contamination. Leave to dry.

Tsukineko-Delicata-white

Use a second stencil and a clean dauber with the White shimmer Delicata ink pad and stencil another pattern onto the background. Use Silver Delicata and the same stencil with a clean dauber and ink silver over the background for a two tone effect. The white leaves a gorgeous shimmer while the silver gives off a soft glow.

Tsukineko-Delicata-Brown

Add shimmery ink splats to your background. Press the ink pad onto your craft sheet and mist with water. Use a small paint brush to pick up some of the ink, mix the water into it to make it liquidy and then splat ink onto your background. The ink leaves a beautiful shimmer that is really hard to capture on photos – but truly spectacular in real life.

The shimmer and lustre is truly amazing on white, but on black it is even more spectacular – opening up a whole new world for cardmakers and wedding invitations – adding the perfect amount of lustre to any occasion.

 

My Origami Heart – a true story layout.

posted in: Layouts | 4

This week I am focusing on a boyish layout using my some of my favourite Lady Pattern Paper papers. We already know how versatile they are combined with other patterned papers,
but today I am sharing how simple it is to choose which papers to use.
true story layout

This layout started off with a fun and vibrant floral patterned paper. I then grabbed my stash of Lady Pattern Paper and chose which colours best matched and complimented the patterned paper – and the following colours won loose hands: Red Pop, So Buff and Intense Teal – perfect for a boyish themed layout with a fun twist.

But that’s not all, I also embossed some stars onto Green Chartreuse using a green embossing powder that turned teal and matched my layout perfectly. My red origami heart is a fun twist using a piece of scrap paper. Foam tape was used to adhere the heart to add some dimension.

Here’s how I created my elements:

Step 1

Stamp stars onto green chartreuse patterned paper using VersaMark ink pad. Sprinkle embossing powder over the stars and shake off the excess.
step 1

Step 2

Heat the stars using a heat gun until the embossing powder is fully melted and shiny. Cut out the stars.
step 2

Step 3 – Folding the origami heart

Cut your patterned paper 11 x 11cm square. (click to view the easy step by step illustration)

My layout is comprised out of blocks of paper with the corners rounded and adhered to the background. My photos are scattered in between the blocks and then finished off with embellishments, embossed stars, the folded heart, rub-ons and a die-cut title.

Use your corner rounder to get perfectly rounded corners each and every time.

detail 3

Use your scrap papers to create beautiful squares – perfect for a layout like this.

Larger pieces of scrap paper is perfect for folding elements on your layout – use every single inch of your papers.

A simple layout finished off with little details adding interest, dimension and texture. I love the simplicity and details the papers offer this layout.
