the LITTLE MOMENTS {kaisercraft & merly impressions}

hello crafty peeps! 

it is almost the end of the month and it is time for my third and last post for MERLY IMPRESSIONS blog. as you already know this month i had the pleasure to design with KAISERCRAFT’s antique bazaar collection {available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS online store}. 

for my previous projects i used vintage photos from my grandmother, but this time i decided to create a page about our little family. i just couldn’t miss the opportunity to use these amazing family quotes!

so, here it is – 


for my background i used KAISERCARD coconut weave cardstock, which i altered with TIM HOLTZ layering stencil BUBBLE, and mini distress ink pads – TUMBLED GLASS and TEA DYE.

when I was satisfied with the result, i added a see-through layer in the middle using KAISERMIST spray ink TURQUOISE {TIP! if you open the cap of the bottle, you can use the mist as paint and apply it with a brush to your project – the easiest way to get a light coloured layer with shimmer}.

when the ink has dried i stamped the black pattern using the DISTRESS CLEAR STAMP and BLACK ink pad

once i was done altering the cardstock, i cut off about 0.5 cm from each side, ruffled its edges using TIM HOLTZ PAPER DISTRESSER and mat it onto the black side of the SALVAGE pattern paper.

to create the layers under my picture i used the mini PAPER PAD matching the ANTIQUE BAZAAR collection. i shaped the edges with an edge punch and added the sticker border {12″ sticker sheet} to mix the colours a bit. 

to decorate my page i used die cuts from the mini PAPER PAD and the COLLECTABLES pack. i layered them and adhered them with MOUNTING foam tape

for the flower cluster i used KAISERCRAFT paper blooms SAGE and mini paper blooms COCONUT {TIP! dip your fingertips in black ink and smudge it gently onto the white flowers}. i surrounded the flowers with die cut swirls and leaves {decorative die FOLIAGE}, made with KAISERCARD black premium cardstock and pattern paper form the mini PAPER PAD

as a finishing touch i added a few RHINESTONES black

 i hope you enjoyed today’s post!

THANK YOU for visiting me and come back soon!

hugs 'n smiles,
