Today I am sharing with you a look at the Kaisercraft Starry Night collection. This week there is cards, a sticky note pad, a small note book and a list pad. Starry Night is a very dark blue you could be forgiven for thinking is black in some instances.
I totally forgot all about the wooden flourishes so they don’t make an appearance, oops! This first set of cards all use elements from the collectables, sticker book, stamp set, and the cut apart sentiment sheets from both the paper and the loose sheets.
In the next set I used the pine leaf stamp on two of the cards to make a background. I had some really pretty blue sparkly gloss cardstock that I got from a charity shop that I cut into strips. Using the strips helps to extend the cardstock a long way. As I only managed to get 3 or 4 sheets this helps a lot!
This last card was the most complicated as I added a removable tag on the right side. I really should have added some cardstock behind the upper edges of the patterned paper but the double layer of tape does help the tag slide in and out ok. All the dimensional elements on the cards have cut up foam sheets behind them.
The Non Cards!
For this next pic I made a sticky note pad with a magnetic enclosure. I hid and extra image under the circle image so it wasn’t blank when opened. The sticky note pad helped me use up some of the remaining scraps I had left. Then for the notebook I wanted to keep it flat so it was easier to write on. With this in mind I used stickers and refrained from adding any curios. Last but not least was the list pad. I did add dimension behind the poinsettia and add a curio as the list pad is single sided.
I hope you enjoyed this look at the Kaisercraft Starry Night collection. to see another Christmas collection you can go here. Let me know what your favourite make is bellow. Hope you are doing some arty crafty alchemy yourselves. Thanks so much for stopping by.
For the first card I used Catherine Wheel and Storm Cloud Nuvo Shimmer Powders to make a background and then stamped the background stamp with the Clear Mark embossing pad. I then used Stampendous’ detail gold embossing powder to emboss the background and the sentiment strip with the little birdy and Love You.
The next 3 cards are only shown in the video, I used the stencil from the box with some Distress Oxide and a blender brush. I layered a watercoloured floral heart over one, and added Altenew Build Rose flowers to the other two with sentiment strips. For the other card not made in the video I used the background I did make and layered 3 sets of the LOVE die I got from the range in England.
This next card was messy! I started by stamping the heart ornaments across the top and colouring them with Nuvo Coral Alcohol Markers. I then embossed My Love with black Nuvo embossing powder and the hearts with Stampendous detail gold. Here’s where things went bad… I used the Nuvo Midas Touch pen to add gold shimmer and it went everywhere! To cover the mess I used some DoCrafts Clear Dimensional Glaze to the hearts and cut an extra one to add over the mess in the corner.
I hope you enjoyed these cards using the Hedgehog Hollow December 2020 box. In the end I had fun making some of them even if I did get frustrated at my constant mistakes! Let me know your fave Below. Thanks for stopping by.
This is week two of the Amp It Up August collab with Heavenly Imaginings. It’s card week! This week I stuck with the same them from last week’s gift cards and tags.
Kaisercrafts Twig & Berry, Yuletide, December 25th and Silent Night papers were used. Some ephemera from these collections helped me pull these cards together.
I also used some glitter tags I got from Kmart on clearance one year after Christmas. Seriously casing my stash for this collab! This collab is proving to be a good way to get all my Christmas items together . 😃There was only time to make three cards this week. They will however fit well with my master plan! Especially seeing as I used black as my base colour for the cards. Ribbons from my stash and pearls from cheapy shops were used to embellish the cards.
Hope you ate enjoying the collab. Be sure to check out the other lovely ladies linked below. They are all super talented 😃 Thanks for joining me.
