Hello Everybody!!!

Lauren and Teddy up today!!!!  Oh we just love sun-filled Winter Days!!! At the moment we are getting mega fogs in the morning and that fog burns off to be such a sunny day, we open the blinds and let the warmth come inside.  When it is like that I love to craft and Teddy and I have been doing a bit of that lately for you!!!

So we thought we would show you a couple of cards we have made for you 🙂

Oh today we have used one of the A2Z Scraplets Stencils Pebblestones – Stencilets & Masklets on the background with CM Metallic Silver, and sprinkled with Embossing Powder (Adirondak Wild Plum) and then heated.  I love this result.  Also used a recent release Decorative 9 Corner Set of 2 and painted it with Viva Inka Gold, so shiny, so beautiful, so vibrant.  You could use a paste or spray from the Colour Blast range in store.

Handmade flowers by me using the EK Success Flower punch in Whale and Medium size.  Tutorial here to make the flowers.

The second card we have for you has used those fabulous words for cards that A2Z Scraplets have available.  I love them.  Handmade holes around the edge of the card, but no stitching in it.

Lots of dies, a stamp and I love those little rosettes that I have used a scoreboard to make, then decorated with charms, flowers and pearls to match my card. Leaves are painted with Glimmer Glaze.

Love that leaf die, it is by Crafty Ann and not sure whether Cheery Lyn have picked it up since they took over.

So proud of ourselves with this one!!  You know I like to recycle, well I have recycled the ‘outer’ of the Star Set of 2 Flourish, so 3 cards out of this chippie, how clever is that.  We have coated it with Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Powder. Went with  purple glitter paper behind it, as I found some leftover star shapes in my diecut box.

This close up gives you an idea of how dimensional and textured this card is.  I love it!!!

Thanks for calling in, have fun papercrafting and get your hands messy with mediums!!!

Love Lauren xxxx

Hello Everybody!!

 

This card is made with the Kraft Plus Challenge in mind.  Yes a Kraft base, a recycled Kraft base that I saved from packaging and have been itching to use it.!!

I have spritzed the base with Dylusions Ink Spray in white.  Added some Grossgrain polkadot ribbon in four strips and a ruffled piece up the middle for something different and in keeping with the colour scheme.  Kaisercraft Die – Lacey Doily and Memory Box Die – MB Botanical Stem.  The A2Z Scraplets Birthday Set 1 Ebony and the Kylie’s Triangle Texture Ebony Shape have been left as they come in that beautiful black.  Decorated with Sugar Beads and a flower arrangement.

And a close up of the flowers.
Thanks for calling by to have a look, this card is entered into the Kraft Plus Challenge for April!!
Waving madly at you all, Lauren and Teddy

Hello Everybody!!

Well here we are, Lauren and Teddy up on the A2Z Scraplets blog today with a card to give you inspiration and ideas!!!   What a fantastic challenge weekend we had over Easter with our lovely Karyn Watton.  Watch out, I am sure there will be more coming along for you all!!

So now to the card, you say! Yes yes here it is 🙂  This card is my DT Inspiration for A2Z Scraplets and is inspired by the Challenge  (stamping and a handmade embellishment) over at Show Us Your Stuff!!

This card has a stamped base (using My Mind’s Eye – The Sweetest Thing stamp set).  Chipboard is
A2Z Scraplets Chicken Wire (I thought it was Hexagons, silly me) painted with Ranger Distress Paint – Victorian Velvet and A2Z Scraplets Doily 2 Small Shape, embossed with
Stampendous Embossing Powder Shabby Pink.  Decorated with lace, ribbon and a handmade flower arrangement (by me) from goodies in my stash.

 

Just a close up of the A2Z Scraplets and my handiwork on that embellishment 🙂
Thanks for dropping by to have a look!!!
Love

Hello Everybody!!

 

Here we are again with another card from the A2Z Easter Weekend Challenges, such great challenges put together by or lovely Karyn Watton.  Challenge 9 was all about using a stencil.

 

A2z challenge 9

Well Teddy and I just love stencils and we have a whole new batch of them from A2Z Scraplets and we have used one here, it is called  Flourish 2  and we used some modelling paste mixed with a mist made from water, ink and some iridescent powder to create a great background relief and then we sprayed the mist over it randomly so we have pale pink background. 🙂  Kaisercraft Lacey Doily, lace and ribbon ruffled with a bow.  (my Tutorials on these can be found on my Youtube Channel).  I have used a portion of the A2Z Scraplets Brick Work Pieces Set of 4 and made a flower arrangement.  The fabulous handmade embellishment and the sprinkling of Sugar Beads are both from My2Angels, they make fantastic embellishments.

 

Thanks for calling by!!!!

 

Love

Lauren

Hello Everybody,

 

What a wonderful Autumn day it is, cool morning, very nice mid 20’s through the day and a slight breeze and a bit of cloud.  Just my type of day.

 

So we have another of the A2Z Scraplets Easter Challenge Weekend cards today

 

SANY4109

 

 

On this card I have used a pretty designer paper and lightly sponged in pink all over and brown as an accent with the new Hexagon Stencil from A2Z Scraplets.  The A2Z Scraplets has been left left as is, the lovely black that it comes.  The gorgeous rickrack and flowers from my stash.

 

Thanks for stopping by.

 

Love

Lauren

Hello Everyone!!!

 

Here we are for you with a couple of cards for you to have a look at and hopefully get some inspiration from.

So here they are:

The first is my usual shabby type card with a Paris theme, now who would not like to see Paris at some stage?

Viva modelling crème over Memory Box Stencil – Texture Splatter Spray, border and doily are Kaisercraft Dies – Lacy Border and Lacy Doily.  Butterfly is Memory Box Isabella Butterfly and Memory Box Pipi Butterfly.  Pearls are Kaisercraft Pearls.
Love, love in Paris, yes well this love is from A2Z Scraplets  Brush Words and has been decorated with black Tombow Pen and Glossy Accents

 

Love charms and decorated charms, I cannot take the credit for this one, it comes from Tracy at My2Angels.
The next card is a bit Clean and Simple for me, such a stretch not to cover up that white space.
These gorgeous Butterflies from Z2Z Scraplets  are called Maisie Butterflies Set of 3  and they are just gorgeous and so perfect for this card!!!  Stamp from Kaszazz.  The Butterflies have been done with Stampendous Embosssing Powder Shabby Blue (I love these shabby colours), which gives a thick melt with a hint of blue on white with gold speckles.  The edges have been touched with Viva Inka Gold in Aquamarine.
A close look at the finish on these butterflies.
Hope you like these, go on, do some creating now, and don’t forget about the A2Z Challenge this month, and we are also having an Easter Weekend Challenge with loads of challenges and fun and games 🙂 Something for everyone including the kidlets!!  Check it out https://www.facebook.com/events/1663115533951222/
See you next time xxxx

Hello Everybody,

Yes, yes, yes, Lauren and Teddy on the A2Z Scraplets blog today to bring you our latest creations for your viewing pleasure!!!

So we have three cards today for you, all with A2Z Scraplets on them and other pretty things too.  We do love pretty.

This would be our favourite, it is so pretty, using paper from Kaisercraft small pad and covered with mesh ribbon, we used a painted brickwork chippie from A2Z Scraplets across the middle of the card for wonderful dimension, added lace and some bobble trimming.  Then used a Memory Box Grand Heart and La Rue Heart (double layered and embossed with Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Powder).

Some foliage with Memory Box Pine Sprigs cut from a coordinating paper and Memory Box Fabulous Phlox for the flowers.

An angled view gives you an idea of the various textures and the great dimension achieved using the A2Z Scraplets under the heart.  Loads of texture with the chipboard, various fibres and trimmings and of course the Stampendous embossing powder.

So here is another one, in blue with so many stars to match the A2Z Scraplets star flourish.

This card looks so much better in real life, so sparkly and pretty with all the added glitter and stars.  Again a Kaisercraft paper for the background, embossed with a Sizzix Embossing folder and with added texture paste using Memory Box Stencil Stars Starry Night with glitter sprinkled over while wet.  Ribbon, bow and stars added to this.

The A2Z Scraplets Chipboard Star Set of 2 Flourish is embossed with Stampendous Embossing Powder Shabby Blue with two layers of powder (one melted and then more embossing fluid added and more powder added and melted.

And I have saved a good one to last, so pretty in purple with silver and glitter galore!!

Oh yes more pretty paper from Kaisercraft, embossed with the stars and swirls embossing folder from Sizzix and added texture paste using Memory Box Stencil Stars Starry Night with glitter sprinkled over while wet.  Lace and ribbon added and those beautiful stars cut from glitter paper.

This time I have made my own mix of embossing powder for the A2Z Chipboard Star Set of 2 Flourish using Adirondak Eggplant and Wild Plum with silver glitter and some silver and white embossing powders added.  All these powders were just regular size EP and I did not mix them very well, so the finished product has a variant in colour finish.

Hope you like what we have for you today, see you soon!!!

Lauren and Teddy
