Kaisercraft and Kraft


Hi everyone, hope you're having a lovely weekend! As mentioned  in my previous post I'm sharing some more makes with Kaisercraft Stamps and this time with a theme of kraft, black, white and a touch of red topped off with shabby white embossing powder.


 For the card above the background stamping is done with black Brilliance ink and the Dictionary texture stamp with the dress form stamped onto a separate piece of kraft card, cut to size and mounted over the base card. The edges are sponged with Gathered Twigs distress ink.

The flowers are die cut using the Tim Holtz Floral garland strip die from thin card coloured with fired brick distress ink for the flowers and a mix of peeled paint, crushed olive and forest moss distress inks for the leaves. I've outlined here and there with a white gel pen and scattered shabby white embossing powder over the top.


For the next card again, going with the same ink with the addition of white Brilliance ink I created the background stamping with the keys texture stamp and the bird cage for the focal image. I used more of the red flowers this time over stamped with the keys and music score stamps in white ink.

I haven't done a close up of the coat stand card but everything is more or less along the same lines.

I'm entering my cards into Country View Crafts Challenge of die cuts and Stamping Sensations Challenge of summer blooms

Oh wow, these are so terrific. I must dig out my Kraft card. That birdcage image is wonderful too being a little taller than the regular ones.
