Two Takes on Blae & Ivy

I really love the pretty Kaisercraft Blae & Ivy collection because it's so versatile.

Take 1: Elegant

The Kaisercraft Blae & Ivy has an elegant style to it in addition to its shappy-chic and romantic feel. It's perfect for an elegant thank you card!

Materials Used: Blae & Ivy Sky (P698), Mystic Cove (P697); BASICS Pearls in Snow; B/W Rub-ons Friends (RB891)

I stamped the image on white cardstock, cut and glue pennants to the cardstock in form of a banner, added pearls to tie the banner together, cut and glue a small strip of Mystic Cove pattern paper to the bottom right of the card and rubbed on the sentiment, "Thank You". I then matted the white cardstock to the Sky pattern paper and finally matted it to the white card base. So simple, yet fun and elegant!


Take 2: Contemporary

As you may have noticed by now, I like punches of bright colors to give my projects a more contemporary look. That's exactly what I did with this frame by adding a striking hot pink color to contrast with the soft elegant Blae & Ivy colors.

Inspired by practically matching baby photos, I used the frame to compare my guy and I as toddlers and how we, at the time, haven't met yet.

Here's a more detailed look at the hearts. To create a clean collage feel, I "camouflaged" hearts in the backgrounds by punching hearts from the same pattern paper as the background, curling them and adhering in form of a banner and background texture.

Materials Used: Small Photo Display (SB2110); Blae & Ivy Meadow (P695), Mystic Cove (P697), Sky (P698), Mini Journal Tags (JT623), Sticker Sheet (SS106); Alpha Clear Stamps in Typewriter Font (CS785); Acrylic Paint in Hot Pink (KC1010), Pretty Pink (KC038); BASICS Pearls in Snow; Others: heart punch

So there you have it, two different takes on the same collection! And don't forget to continue to check out the Kaisercraft blog for more inspiration.
