Hello Everyone!!

 

We are back with some lovely cards made from Kaisercraft products in a kit from Paper Flourish.  Everything provided except some bling, flowers, foliage and butterflies I added from my stash.  Papers (6 1/2 x 6 1/2 pad), collectables, card and envelopes and bling were all in the kit as well as 6 designs for inspiration.

 

Teddy and I made 10 cards with lots of collectable pieces and we lined the envelopes TA-DAH!!! Still there were lots of collectables, the pearls and some papers left over as well as lots of off cuts that we used to punch out a heap of butterflies and other punchies for the little kids at child care to play with.

 

So let’s have a look at them, shall we??  Teddy is so proud of his work on these.

These were fun to make, taking me out of my comfort zone.  Very different to what I usually do in my not using very much by way of designer paper, Teddy might have to get more of these kits, or even other ones to see how we go with them.

 

Thanks for calling in, hope you like what you see.

 

Love Lauren xx

Hello Everybody, Lauren and Teddy up on the A2Z Scraplets blog today with a couple of tags this time.

We had such fun making this mixed media Tag of the Sea.   We started by using some Texture paste on with A2Z Scraplets Stencil Flourishes and then painting the all over with Ranger Distress Paint Broken China and then some sponging of Bundled Sage over the top.  When dry I sponged with Inka Gold Aquamarine with added water to get the mottled look.

Next came some decorating with seashell, netting, charms and microbeads over a coat of white glue (dries clear) and some touches of colour  Viva Inca Gold in colours of Gold, Jade and Rose Quartz.
When I was happy with the decorated look, I added some Inka Gold in Cobalt Blue around the edge and put the bubbles on and the A2Z Scraplets Hello.   The hello was done in Inka Gold Charcoal and Cobalt Blue and then coated with Crackle Accents.

This Christmas Tag was done with and embossing folder from Courture Creations that was sprayed with Colourblast Shimmer Spray Deep Water.

Lace and netting to decorate, a pine die cut for the foliage and the Memory Box Luxe Pointsettia .  Merry Christmas added with the A2Z Scraplets Xmas Tree

The Christmas Tree was embossed using Stampendous EP in Shabby White, I just love this stuff!!!

Now I just what to show you some different effects that can be obtained by some crackle mediums.  I love crackle, or the look of it.  All the below examples are painted prior to using a crackle medium on them.

This first one, is done in Inkssentials Crackle Accents.  Only the triangles were done, covering the sides of the triangles in one single line of medium and then pulling it to the centre, so that it was really dimensional.

This one Wrought Iron  was done with Viva Crackle Medium and gives a more opaque finish and a different effect of really squiggly cracks.  The medium was applied all over and fairly thickly.  I applied this with a palette knife as this is easier for me than a brush.

This leaf was done with Crackle Accents, I really like the way this gives the line effect at the edges of all the leaves (Simple Greens).  I must experiment more with the way this is applied as I think I get different effects with different ways of applying it.

The Brickwork Pieces is done with Ranger Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy.  I love the little squares of crackle this gives, and will give the same effect thick or thin.  This was applied with the brush that comes in the bottle of Crackle Paint.

Now you want my conclusions……. you are just busting to know that I find the crackling effect of all three products amazing……. for ease of use I say the Crackle Accents by Inkssentials is fool proof as it has an applicator nozzle and for lazy people like me it is so easy to use!!!!

Well that’s it for us this time, thanks for calling in.

Love Lauren and Teddy

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

OH Woo Hoo, we are here at last, late, but still on the day.  Teddy has been so busy with Melbourne Cup Sweeps and having fun that of course he left it to the last minute to post.  Silly boy makes me shake my head, but keeps me amused.

Well we have been playing with chipboard from the lovely A2Z Scraplets and it is just wonderful to be able to make a feature for a card with only a little work.  Chippie is fabulous and we think the best designs are from A2Z Scraplets.

So we made you a card of course.

How cute is this, a Christmas Card by us with non-traditional colours.  Back to sewing on our paper, we do love that and die cut from Kaiser Doily, the pretty Christmas Trees and the A2Z Scraplets chippie of the tree, gorgeous.

The Chipboard tree is decorated in  Stampendous Shabby white embossing powder then decorated with sequin stars.

The base papers are from Kaisercraft A Touch of Gold.

So then Teddy made you another card, just for your viewing pleasure today.

So pretty in pink of course in our own style.  Two papers from an old Kaiser 6 1/2 inch pad, the edges distressed and then the lovely pink and silver ribbon and bow.  Some swirly Bling  and lovely flowers that have been inked and then glittered.

The Chipboard again from A2Z Scraplets is covered in Silver Embossing Powder. So quick, so easy and stunning.

Hope you like them 🙂

Hugs 🙂

Quick and Simple Cards

Hello Everybody,

Yes you lucky people have Teddy and Lauren on the blog today, how exciting, and we can hear you asking what we have for you today.

Well, let.. me.. tell.. you! We made some cards, quick and simple, easy peasy and still pleasing to the eye!!! Hahahaha Teddy is so funny.  We had our A2Z Scraplets chippies all ready decorated and ready to go, but alas, you know us, we have misplaced them!!!!  AND we have moved so that everything is in Chaos Central (more than usual) and the dies are all still packed away, (Teddy fainted at this point) so we went looking for something that would be suitable for an audience such as you!!!

Yes, I know!! We had to be very inventive, so we got out a couple of those lovely small Paper Pads from Kaisercraft and WHALLA!!! Instant pretty cards!!

TA-DAH!! a pocket card, yes it opens just like a card and you can write inside, the front is just folded down and held with a brad, and the tags are from the pop out die cut sheet in the paper pad.  What a brilliant idea!! So quick and easy and very pretty!!!

So Teddy and I were on a roll so we made another card!!!

This one is from a gorgeous paper pad and is all geometric in mustard, black and white (Teddy’s favourite today) called A Touch of Gold.  Two sheets of paper, and several pop out die cuts from the pad and we are done.  Add a little bling of course!!!
Now you see you do not even really need to be an expert paper crafter to make beautiful cards, just cut, pop things out and glue them down and you have stunning cards that anyone would love to receive from you!!!
Hope you like them 🙂
Hugs  Lauren

Hello Everybody,

Hope  all is well and you can feel Winter coming to an end soon with Springlike weather becoming the norm.  I can be wishing.

So I made a card for you.  Well two actually, just for you to enjoy with lushous goodies on them from A2Z Scaplets shop.  Oh my do I love to shop!!

So while I was shopping, I had to buy this fantastic set of four dies from Memory Box called Distressed Windham Collage (style 30041) from A2Z Scraplets Shop of course!  Well you know I love Memory Box Dies and you know I love Distressed and I also love Collage, so this one was just calling my name.  Four beautiful dies in different patterns and sizes just the one I have used.  Perfect for so many projects and ideas.  On this card I have also put some foliage, lovely handmade by me flowers and some other bought flowers and some lovely A2Z Scraplets Chippie flowers Scribbly Flowers Set of 3 Shapes.

The Chipboard flowers have been done with gesso to give a good coating for the spray to cling to.  A double go of Ranger Perfect Pearl Spray and then some glitter sprinkled.  Then heated and embossed.  The embossing was a bit patchy as I think I need more heat, so practice will be needed for this technique form me.  But I am sure you will do better with it. Embossing has never been my best trick!!

The Flowers are finished with some Ice Stickles from Ranger.  I have fallen in love again with this glitter glue, hmmm….

Hope you like it 🙂

And this second card is in my favourite pink and green.  Another new die from Memory Box called Modern Border Trim (style 30048), love these arrows and the cutout bits I have used to add to the area around the chipboard.  The ruffled ribbon and the added (dimensionally) the butterfly swirls from, they are really Butterfly and Flourish Medium from  A2Z Scraplets.

The Butterfly Swirl is done with Gesso, a coat of paint, pink on the butterflies and green on the rest.

Then sprinkled with glitter while still wet, and when dry I have used Ranger Inkessentials Medium Crackle Accents.  Love the way this dries more crackly the longer it dries.

Hope you like it 🙂

Hugs 🙂

Lauren xx
