A little bit of Kaisercraft

Hello again, yes I know quite rare two posts in one day, you must be as shocked as I am :))

I thought I'd show you my latest OTP project using Kaisercraft's new Kite - I just loved this project!  My lovely friend Karen way down south has just become a Grandma to the cutest wee girl called Indie.  She really is quite cute.  Usually as baby gift I scrap a wooden letter (or their whole name depending on how many letters there are), but this time I wanted to go a bit further and incorporate her name into the kite.  Ive used the final pieces of Bonjour I had, which is a shame, I loved loved loved this range!  But anyway here it is - I found it difficult to photograph without having it on the wall, so I ended up on a stepladder looking down over it, still not that happy with it but you get the idea.

Ived used some tulle to tie all the 'bows' together, and then added two pale pink tulle double bows to the beginning and the end.
And a few close ups, so show all the detail in the kite.

Ive made the flowers using a Tim Holtz die and  Spellbinders Anemone Flower Topper.  The wooden Kaisercraft leaves I inked with Versamark and rubbed two shades of Pearlex into them.  The bird and butterfly are both popped up with foam tape.  The punch in the background has become a big favourite of mine lately, its Martha Stewart Deep Edged Heart border punch.
With the leftover scraps I made a card, and I also decorated a Kaisercraft mannequin.

This time I used a Stampin Up border punch to create the white edge and just mitred the corners to create a frame around the base layer of paper.  Then Ive layered Spellbinders Romantic Ovals and Martha Stewart Heart Scroll, with a single pale pink tulle bow layered with a double bow of seam binding and rose.
Apparently I made Indie's mum cry when she unwrapped her gift, which makes it all worth while - not that I like to make people cry if you know what I mean!

So, the mannequin, here she is in all her Bonjour glory......................................................

As you may have gathered I have a love of all things heritage, so the idea behind this was to create an old fashioned dress with a bustle.  To create the bustle I shaped squares of paper into cones and then layered them on top of each other with flowers over top and a double bow ribbon.

And the front, with her wee apron..............................................

Well I think thats about all folks :)
Have a great day!
