Pink Gelato Cards

More Pink Gelato.... this time mixed witha satin rose and some stamping. I love the Kaisercraft Paper pads ... there is simply no end to the cards you can make with one simple Pad. Here are some more cards made from the same paper pad:

A Laugh with Pink Gelato...

Kaisercraft's new 'Pink Gelato' paper collection was perfect for this fun little BTP project... I simply used one of Kiasercraft's script MDF words and a flower shaped tag album. Pop some papers on the flowers, add a few paper blooms and some wood flourishes decorated with some ink and this is what you end up with!

Pink Gelato Angel

Well I'm back with another Layout using the 'Pink Gelato' paper collection ...  the perfect papers for all things little girl! The Pink metal finish paint I have used here is a new product I recently began to stock in the shop ... I LOVE the irridesent quality of these 'precious metal paints'. I'm also a bit taken by those angel wing wood flourishes ... how cute! :)

Pink Gelato

Let me start by saying that 'Pink Gelato' would have to be one of the oddest names for a paper range that I have ever come across!! I would actually love to know the story behind how they came up with the name for this range!

 Anyway, I will concede that the name fits perfectly, all the pages in this collection are pastel and pale in complexion and I thought I would struggle with creating anything from this pallet, as I'm far more drawn to and comfortable with bold bright colours, BUT..... I love the pages I have made recently using these papers! They are the perfect papers for a baby girl, and with 4 of those under my belt, I've got more than enough subject matter to accompany this 'Pink Gelato' collection. 

In the layout above I have also used the rolled paper rose technique I have come to adore and of course there is the ever present spray of butterflies that it seems I have become addicted to lately!

Velvet Ensemble Cards...

This first card was made using paper from the Velvet Ensemble Paper Pad, a tag from the coordinating Journal Tag book and I made the rose and leaves from circles of Satin.

The next few cards below were made from more paper in the Velvet Ensemble paper pad and as many birds from my new Martha Stuart bird punch as I thought I could get away with!! Bhahahahaha.

Bird House Key Hanger...

I decorated this cute bird house key hanger with papers from the new 'Velvet Ensemble' collection .... I'm loving the colours in this paper range! I had also been wanting to get into one of these bird houses for about a year now, so this was a very satisfying project to do!

Velvet Ensemble

I really enjoyed making this layout of myself and my mother from this new paper collection, I just adore all the rich dark tones in it. I'm also really enjoying all those gorgeous Mather Stuart border Punches that you see on my work constantly these days, I love the a decorative boarder can add so much to a page with so little effort! I've also done a heap of stamping in the back ground of this page, which also worked well and was well worth the time and effort.
