Making the Most of Decorated Papers - Kaisercraft Chanteuse

Happy Thursday, All!  Kathy Jo here to share some cards using beautiful Quietfire stamps and the lovely Kaisercraft paper collection, Chanteuse.  

The first card is a shaped cameo mom card.
Several dies were used on this card (starting from the base up and all are Spellbinders): Grand Decorative Labels One, Grand Stately Circles, Opulent Ovals, Ovals, and Silhouette.  
On the bow I added a pearl button and "Mom" from Quietfire's Home Is Where Your Mom Is stamp.
The inside is a die cut (Scalloped Labels One) from Chanteuse and Opulent Ovals die cut of "Home Is Where Your Mom Is".

Next is a fancy fold birthday gift card holder:

The card is easy to make: cut 12" x 12" ivory card stock to 4" wide.  Score "down" at 4.5", 5.5" and 10".  Flip the paper over and score at 5".  That is the basic shape of the card...told you it was easy!  I wanted to add some shape to the flap so I die cut the flap using Spellbinders' Labels Twenty.  Here is a shocker to you all so I hope you are sitting down while you read this next statement- I did not use any other die sets on this card.    I did not need to because Kaisercraft's Chanteuse Collection already has die cuts in the paper pad!  On one of the die cuts I stamped Quietfire's Happy Birthday and used a gold leafing pen along the edge.  A sheet of the corner flowers paper was cut to 4" square and mounted on green card stock.  This stack was mounted to the front.  A piece of the pink paper was die cut and applied to the flap.   

A piece of seam binding was cut and assembled onto the card back.  Brown patterned paper from the same pad was cut to size and assembled over the seam binding.  

The inside is more of this pretty paper- one was adhered to a green base and another was cut smaller and applied to a pink base.  The smaller cut paper had tape only applied to three sides so that a gift card could be inserted. 
----------------------------------------------------
The final card is a Shabby Chic style card:
The tent fold base was made from kraft card stock and Tim Holtz' Distress Stain in Picket Fence was applied along the edges.  Ivory card stock was cut to size and distressed along the edges.  Kaisercrafts Chantuese Collection paper was also cut to size and distressed.  Ivory card stock was die cut using Spellbinders' Devine Eleoquence.  Kraft card stock was embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder, die cut using Spellbinders' Labels Four and Picket Fence applied along the edges.
Next, ivory card stock had Quietfire's Happy Birthday stamped in black and then was die cut using Spellbinders's Ribbon Banners.  The die was trimmed as shown.

Seam binding was dyed using Tim Holtz' Distress Stain in Spun Sugar.  A double bow and a wrap were made and applied.  A scrap piece of lace ribbon was attached.  Bling adhered at will.

Thanks for making it to the end of the long post.  I hope you enjoyed the above cards...they were so fun to make!


Even more good news: the Mom stamp used in the first card and the Happy Birthday set used on the shabby card are also 20% off!  Woo-who! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Kathy Jo
