Hello Everybody,

Lauren and Teddy up on the A2Z Scraplets blog today and we are going to show you a couple of cards with mobs of flowers and are made especially for special occasions.

So these are the cards that I made just for you to get some inspiration from.  I hope you like them.

Ohhhhh…… This one is Teddy’s favourite, a Cascading Z Fold Card we think, with a die cut lace border at the top (cut with Kaiser Lacey Borders) and all panels covered with patterned paper and some doilies.  The flat flowers, the tags and the sentiment come from packs of Kaiser Collectables, such fast embellishing with no effort.
I have added 3D roses and cherry blossoms (because I love them so much) and ribbon right across the bottom of the card.  All finished with flat back pearls and Ranger Ice Stickles.
Love the tags (dressed up with flowers and ribbons) and the sentiment piece from the Kaiser Collectables.  So easy, so quick.  No mess from stamping if you are not so confident too.
Oh and the second card is one I have been dreaming of for a long time and Deb created the Chipboard Sentiment for me, love it.
I have used a 5″x5″ card base and cut a piece of Kaiser Paper Pad cut to size and torn top and bottom, then stitched around including tears.  This is then attached to the card and the tears are rolled open.  I have done a few stencil leaves over the base.  The three chipboard pieces, the Two Becomes One and the Vine Flourish (cut in half for the two corners) have been embossed with Stampendous Shabby White (love that stuff, so pretty), and then glued to the card.  You can also get Stampendous Embossing Powders from My2Angels Shop on the Gold Coast and internet
Then I have rolled the tears more and filled the space with pearl beads of different sizes.  Added 3D roses and cherry blossoms to the chipboard swirl on the two corners.  The flowers are all touched with Ranger Ice Stickles.
This last photo gives a closer photo of the embossed flourish and the pearls in the paper tear as well as the Ice Stickles on the flowers.
Oh yes I love pretty, oh so pretty.
Hope you like today’s effort and get some ideas from them.
Thanks Lauren

Hello Everyone,


Just a quick post today, for a card made for the MIU Challenge over on SCS where we had to make a card with fruit on it.  Miss Kathy thought this one up.  So I thought I have a grape stamp, so here it is.



Well this turned out so much better than I thought it might.  Sometimes I am at a loss as to what to use as a background with coloured images, because I am so unsure of patterned papers and often do not have paper that matches my cardstock, DUH!!


But I was clever with this one, I piced out the cardstock to match my colouring (watercolour pencils) and then matched the ink and stamped the background with that beautiful Netting stamp from Lucy’s stamps.


Then I assembled the card, with a white base with a purple mat and a white mat over it (this was stamped in Ranger Distress Ink Dusty Concord.  On these panels I layered some white lace and a purple cardstock strip with a white bow.  The image was cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities circles and matted onto a scalloped circle.  Card is finished with a few drops of Liquic Pearls.


This is a pretty little card using two images from Stamp-It Australia.


I cannot believe I have not been stamping so much in the last year or so.  My friend Miss Lynn got herself some new craft room furniture and rearranged her room to be more like mine and have most things within reach.  When she was doing this I realised that I had stopped stamping because they were not in reach and I was forgetting what little goodies I have in those drawers.


So, I did the move of the trolley with the stamps in it, to the bookcase and the stamps to a little coffee table behind where I sit, ….. well Bingo!!! How good is that???  I am loving it.


Thanks for calling in, hope your day is going well.

Hugs :)
