Easter Eggs - Scrappy Tail Crafts

  Hello Friends, Waleska here to share with you some card ideas...   My project, today is all about Easter, is it too early what do you think? I used some new fun dies from the latest Release.  You can find this dies many other beautiful products at the Scrappy Tails Shop.


I started by die cutting the eggs from the Spring Essentials Metal Dies from white cardstock.  To color this eggs I wanted to use some spring colors, to do that I used  Nuvo Shimmer Powders in colors: Solar Flare, Violet Brocade and Atlantis Burst.  I put a little of this powders and add them some water, a little goes a long way with this powders, and color the eggs, the eggs look so fun with this colors mixed together.

I then added some of this same color powders to a white card base and used this piece to create two cards.  

I added the colored eggs to the cards, I used foam tape to raise the eggs and finally I added the sentiment with gold cardstock and some sequins.

I love how this two cards turned out and the soft colors give this card a total Easter feel.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Remember to stay safe and stay crafty and don't forget to visit the Scrappy Tail Crafts Shop!

Gold and Pink Butterfly Pop Up Card for Scrappy Tail Crafts

 Hello Friends, it is time again for another post from me!!!  I am very excited to share with you my project, today I used a bunch of fun dies from Scrappy Tails you can find at the shop I hope you like it!



I started first with the vase of this fun Flower Vase Pop Up card to do that I die cut all the pieces to create it, you need two of the vase pieces and 4 inserts.  You can also check out Sabrina's youtube video for a more detailed explanation here.  I glue this two vase pieces together and then I used oxide inks in colors Spun Sugar  and Picked Raspberry and I also added some water splashes for more texture.  I also put the four inserts inside the vase so I could add my elements.  You can put anything you want inside this vase, flowers, eggs, roses, tulips or butterflies.....

I then cut a bunch of butterflies from the Spring Essencials dies  with gold cardstock, I really wanted a golden look to this card.  I also trace the butterflies from the same colors I used for the base to adhere in the back of the butterflies.for a pop of color. I used a clear cake container plastic I recicled to cut strips and I adhere them in the back of some of my butterlies so they look like they are flying around this card.

I finally start assembling my card by adhering the butterflies all aound the vase, I also adhered a gold XOXO word to a strip of the clear packaging and added to the center of the vase, the words look like they are floating so awesome!!  

I finally thought that it was missing something so I splashed some Gansai Tambi gold Starry Color watercolors on the vase to integrate the gold from the butterflies to the vase.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Remember to check out the newest release from Scrappy Tail Crafts at the shop!
