#Kaisercraft Frosted Part Two

Hi there,
I'm linking this post to the Challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique. They have a mood board to help inspire you.  I was inspired by the the Christmas theme. Click HERE to go to the challenge.

I'm back to show you the other cards I created using the  Paper pad Frosted by Kaisercraft. In my last post I told you how I had gone to my local craft store for a card making class where we were given the Paper pad Frosted & shown how to make several cards. We got to take home the rest of the paper pad once the class was finished. Not wanting to waste the rest of the pad this is what I have made so far.

This card was almost identical to one we had made in the class. Everything came from the paper pad except the snow flake. I die cut this out of glittery paper I had in my stash, from a Sizzix die called Snow Flurry I got from Stampin' Up many years ago.

The next 3 cards are the same design but with small differences. They all have a piece of the glitter washi tape running down the left hand side of the cardand a piece of patterned paper. A  wastree fussy cut out of paper from the paper pad. It was mounted onto another piece from the pad that had been die cut, using the Rectangular nesting stitched dies also from Kaisercraft. Either a snowflake once again die cut  out of glittery paper  from the Sizzix die called Snow Flurry  from Stampin' Up, or a wooden element.

The card below is the card I entered into the challenge.

The next 3 cards were made using strips of paper from the pad and the washi tape for the background. Again I used the  rectangular stitched dies to die cut a rectangle onto which I mounted either a tag, image or sentiment circle also from the pad.  Also some snowflake die cut action or wooden element was added to the cards,

This pad has everything you need to make fabulous cards, what do you think?
Here's the pad again. 

  Don't forget to pop over to the Scrapbook Boutique to check out their challenge. 

Thanks for stopping by. Do leave a comment and let me know which card is your favourite.

Have a lovely day. 
Cheers Donna :)

#Kaisercraft Frosted

Hi there,
I have been busy crafting but not blogging. Last week I went to a card class at my local craft store. We were all given 6 & a 1/2"  Paper Pad, Frosted by Kaisercraft. We also received some wooden elements, a snowflake die cut out of glitter paper, some silver glitter washi tape & some silver twine. We were then shown how to make several cards which we did. Here are the cards we made.

For this card we added lots of layers using the paper from the pad. We cut a length of the silver glitter washi tape, folded it back on itself and flagged the ends, it  looks like silver ribbon - I thought this was a very clever idea. The image and greeting also came from the pad. The wooden snowflake is just peeking out from the greeting.

For this card we were given the stamped frame that we had to fussy cut. I don't know which stamp set  this came from or who makes it, sorry I forgot to ask! The white paper with the splats was ordinary white card stock that we dipped and dragged through some blue distress ink that had water added to it. Then we added some splats/flicks of a silver metallic ink. We fussy cut the tree out of a piece of paper from the pad. The image, sentiment circle and music paper  also came from the paper pad.  

Now this card was billed as the masculine card. We pasted the music paper onto a white card base then topped it with a patterned paper that had been embossed so as to add texture and interest. Teresa the lovely lady who ran the class told us that patterned papers that we didn't really like could be put in embossing folders to add some visual interest. Interesting idea, I hadn't thought of that, I usually just don't use them!!!

This was the paper pad we used. It's actually a great pad full of patterned papers, images, tags, borders, sentiments & greetings. There is a whole collection that goes with this set of papers. It also comes in 12x12" papers. I believe there is even a coordinating stamp set as well. Pop over to Kaisercraft to check it out. I am not affiliated or linked  with Kaisercraft. I just happen to like this particular paper. We got to take the rest of the pad home after the class was finished.

Pop back for the next post to see what I made with the rest of this paper pad once I got home, I even surprised my self with what I came up with.

Have a great day.
Cheers Donna :)
