Birthday Cards in Red

Hello Everybody!!

Yes we have Lauren and Teddy up on the blog today with so much news you will be blown away!!!

Yes it is true, over this and the next couple of months we will be seeking a couple of our lovely followers as Guest Designers for this very wonderful A2Z Scraplets Blog, how exciting is that!!! You can let me know if you want in by joining the A2Z Scraplets Challenge this month and commenting that you would like to be considered for this wonderful one-off gig!!! Yeppo that simple!!!

Oh Oh Oh and now onto our purpose for being here, yes that's right, Teddy made you a couple of cards :) 

These are pretty in red and was the start of a project of 5 cards, but you know Teddy is a brilliant starter and a lousy finisher, so you only get 2 of them :)

Oh we loved doing this background, sprayed a 5x5 inch white card panel with homemade red shimmer spray (ink, water and perfect pearls forever red) then using the brand spanking new brickwall stencil from A2Z Scraplets applied texture paste and while the stencil was still in place sprinkled Stampendous EP Aged Scarlet, removed the stencil and heat set it.  Love the way the EP and the paste bubbles up when heated to create such wonderful texture as well as colour.
Used one of our favourite dies the Kaisercraft Lacey Doily with pearls on the base of each scallop, The A2Z Scraplets Happy Birthday is covered with the Stampendous EP Aged Scarlet and has the flower/leaf embellishments attached before placing on the card.
Oh how yummy is the same embossing powder on the A2Z Scraplet?  So rich and so colourful.  Love this mixed size EP and the way the particles melt but does not blend together fully. 
Just a close up of the Chipboard and the brick texture.  One of my favourite ways of creating texture and covering A2Z Scraplets.
Now Teddy has another one for you.  And of course it has his special ribbon and bow treatment on it along with some very fancy bling.

Using the same products of home made spray (ink, water and perfect pearls forever red) to spray the background, the Kaisercraft Lacey Doily, then some lace, the ruffled ribbon and a bow with a bling to cover the knot.  The A2Z Scraplet is covered in Stampendous EP  Aged Scarlet and topped with a handmade embellishment of roses, leaves and cotton yarn then attached to the centre of the chippie.  Stamped sentiment on a ribbon cut set dimensionally and some bling added.

A close up of the A2Z Scraplet and the embellishment.

A different view to show the dimension of the embellished A2Z Scraplet.  I am a dimensional cardmaker and yes I make boxes instead of envelopes for my cards if they are to be posted to someone. 
Have just been thinking I had forgotten something I had to tell you, and yes it was to come on over to Facebook and join in our May A2Z Challenge, loads of fun and a wonderful pack of A2Z Scraplets on offer to the best entry, you have nothing to lose and you could end up with a lovely prize pack.
Thanks for calling by to have a look!!!
Love from Lauren and Teddy xxx
