Oh Hello Everyone,

Well how lucky are you to have Lauren and Teddy up on the blog today??   What an exciting week it has been with the launch of our very first Facebook A2Z Papercraft Challenge, so today we thought we would show you the cards Teddy made to inspire you, it is after all an Inspiration Challenge for March.  This is the picture to give the inspiration.

Now doesn’t that picture give you great ideas of boys and play and boats and sand and beaches and pennants and blue and stripes and so much more!!!
So here is the first thought, a lighthouse on the headland surrounded by crashing waves.
 The background at the top is done with white ink in a Sizzix Embossing Folder from a due pack from Tim Holtz and I believe it is called rays, the bottom section is wax resist done with scrunched wax paper ironed onto glossy white cardstock and then inked with blue.  Hint: the more you scrunch, the smaller the pattern and more wax on your paper.
The gorgeous 18th Birthday Card Size Ebony from A2Z Scraplets came as is, coloured heavy card, so I left it as it was for this card.  The baker’s twine is made by me (I love to save money using my stash items) and if you would like to know how to do it, here is a link to Pictorial Tutorial Making Twisted String.
The next inspiration came from the canvas of beach scene on the right hand wall, look at those gorgeous beach boxes on it.  So cute.
This one is a beach house using a Kaszazz Stamp coloured with Ranger Perfect Pearls (love using these to make shimmer paints, keep them in the palette and let them dry and they work the same as watercolour paints.
Birthday Boy is from the A2Z Scraplets – Birthday Set 1 Ebony and it is covered with a lovely thick coat of Ranger Glossy Accents, love this stuff because it keeps its dimension and dries so thick.
This next card is one Teddy has made several times, it is such a fun card and inspired by the blue teddy sitting on the cabin of the big boat toybox.
It is an uneven gatefold card and kept closed by those lovely turn mounts.  The Teddies are stamped in blue on vellum and then layered on navy then white.  Little paw prints are stamped randomly over the card front.
We are loving these A2Z Scraplets Arrow Words in the February Release, they are just gorgeous and there are so many to choose from with colours available too!!!  This one has been left the colour as is and coated with Ranger Glossy Accents.  (I need buckets of that stuff) 🙂
The last card is a masculine card (sometimes so hard for us to do) and it is inspired by the overall nautical and ‘boaty’ feel to the picture, and we turned it to a very ‘aged’ project.
This card has lots of DTP edging with Ranger Distress Ink Walnut Stain and the curled corners add to the overall ‘old’ look to the card.  Backgrounds are stamped with Lucy’s Stamps Aged Cube and Rabbit Proof Fence (the text), edges torn or distressed, inked and curled.  The Happy Birthday is a Stamp-It Australia greeting.
Love the A2Z Scraplets Birthday Boy Set Cardinal and covered the birthday with Viva Crackling Colour Transparent very thickly as we find it really does give a great crackle.
The Anchor is die cut from a coke can, love to recycle things.
Hope you like these cards and find something in them you can take to call your own.
See you next time…. Lauren and Teddy

Hello Everyone,

 

Just a quick post today.

 

Yes I made a card for you 🙂

 

SANY3833-001

 

I have made a card similar to this before, but I wanted to use washi tape on the banners and add the tower and some foliage.  Pretty happy with this one 🙂

 

Hope you like it.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone!!

Cold winter’s day here, my fingers are still frozen at 1pm, don’t think it will get warmer for me.

so I made a card for you.

SANY3820

Oh this one is a cute one, made for a Challenge on Facebook ACCC, Using a Stencil, I have almost covered the stencil up!!

Yes a 5″ x 5″ card with a designer paper that I have stitched around.  Then I have inked the edges of the card and the paper, and then used an open chicken wire stencil to get hexagonal blobs and spatter on my card with texture paste.  Lace and a thin strip of the patterned paper, a sentiment and a lovely garland of roses and foliage, I have spiralled the wires on the roses to add another texture.

Hope you like it!!

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

It is getting so cool and that wind is not only making it cooler but it is so noisy!! Makes me think Winter is not going to be so nice this year.  Not so sure I will like that, but Spring follows, so I can stay inside till then if needed 🙂

 

So I made a card, how good is that?

 

SANY2022

I have done a card before with a very similar design.  I love it, with the really nautical feel to it in a style that is so great as a really masculine card.  The main difference in this one to the other I made is I have put the string vertically and the charm at the top.

 

SANY2023

The charm is really a die cut in aluminium (Marianne Anchor) and then it is heated and dipped in silver embossing powder and then heated again to melt it evenly.  Sometimes it needs more than one dip and heat, and when done I have sponged it with StazOn Timber Brown.  I love using embossing powder on other items, it gives such fantastic results.

 

Well I hope you liked this one, Teddy will be back later in the week to spill his adventures.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

Just one more day to get into the draw for the Blog Candy, how good would it be to get those lovely little flowers!!!

 

So I thought I would make a card.  A while back Hez’s Scrapbooking from Townsville had some free die cuts with purchase and I was lucky enough to get this great die cut of the Sizzix Bigz Tim Holts clock and hands, so nice!!

 

SANY1876

 

And this is what I did with it.  The background is stamped with a Stamp It unmounted set clocks and the die is coloured with Colorbox Mica Magic ink pads (just love them) to give that bronze dirty look.

 

A couple of brads and the hands on, a sentiment and all done.  Such an easy male card.  I really like this for an anytime card for any man.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

You know I love tags and I especially love the new bling it up, layer it up, flower it up textured tags, they are just fantastic.  But before these came along I used to love making tags and there was never anywhere to write anything, they were stamped and coloured and glossed and just looked so pretty.

 

Well I have kept a lot of them and now have decided to use them.

 

Yes you guessed it, I made a card with them.

 

SANY1894

 

Yes yes this is just three tags on a card, layed slightly over each other with cut outs from magazines over them and ribbon stapled on.  A pretty flower added and a sentiment.

 

How cool is that???

 

Hugs 🙂

 

Lauren
