TRULY, MADLY with XO {merly impressions & kaisercraft}

hello KAISERCRAFT friends!

i can’t believe it is february already… where did january go? time does fly when you are having crafty fun! 

this month i have the pleasure to work with the newest and most romantic KAISERCRAFT collection “XO”. the soft colours of this paper line make it perfect for any romantic / lovable picture you might have. 

i decided to work with a picture of my kids and their niece from our last photo-session. and i know, "LOVE HURTS" it would be a much more appropriate title :-)


as you can see, i used a lot of KAISERCRAFT stamps on this layout and a lot of different embellishments. and here is how i did it…

i started with KAISERCARD licorice weave cardstock. i stamped its edge with FILM EDGES clear stamps and WHITE ink pad. i left the cardstock to air dry and took the MADLY pattern paper. i cut out 1,5 cm from two sides and ruffled its edges with TIM HOLTZ' paper distresser. then i stamped the corner images using “HUMMINGBIRD” clear stamps set and mini clear stamp “KNOWING YOU” with BLACK ink pad.

then, using TIM HOLTZ’ layering stencil HEARTS and  RANGER INK texture paste, i created the dimensional pattern on my background. after the paste has dried i splattered GLIMMER GLAZE black olive on top of it.

тo create the layers under my picture и used small pattern papers from the 6.5 x 6.5″ paper pad and different punches. i adhered my picture with KAISERCRAFT double-sided tape and embellished it with die cuts from the COLLECTABLES pack. i stamped the phrase "love this", using BLACK ink pad and KAISERCRAFT love this clear stamps from the something blue collection.

… stickers from the 12 x 12″ sticker sheet and rhinestones from kaisercraft RHINESTONE STRIPS – island lagoon. i also added different size pearls CHAMPAGNE colour.

to finish off the composition around my picture i added a few mini paper blooms FAIRY FLOSS.

for my title i used die cut words from the COLLECTABLES pack. to adhere them i used mounting foam tape.

 then i stamped the butterflies on a pink pattern paper from the 6.5 x 6.5″ paper pad. i used KAISERCRAFT butterflies clear stamp and BLACK ink pad. i added a stripe with LIQUID PEARLS bisque in the middle and STICKLES glitte glue diamond on the wings.

to finish off my design i added a few love arrows, stamped with BLACK ink pad and XO clear stamp set.

I hope I managed to inspire you today!

have a lovely weekend!

hugs 'n smiles,
