Easter Spring {Scrapy Land}

Welcome to my project for the 14th Scrapy Land Challenge!
(7 simple, glittery small cards - size A2 US - and flat for mailing)



The Challenge is open from March 18 until March 29. 
The theme is "EASTER OR SPRING using any die manufacturer which Scrapy Land sells".  Scrapy Land sells over 40 brands of dies, including overseas products, and many are discounted.
The prize is a $15 gift card - good for anything in the Scrapy Land store!

My cards feature the following Scrapy Land dies.
(for all the dies used, please see the product list at bottom of post)

Accomplishment Alert! (giggle)

The cards are flat! (for mailing).     They are small! A2 size (5.5" x 4.25"). 
Normally I make size A7 (5" x 7"), so this truly was a difficult card to make in my book. (giggle)

Simple METHOD:
The card "jacket" is white and covered completely with Sparkle N Sprinkle Brushable Glue and immediately dredged with glitter. After 30 minutes, the excess glitter was brushed off, and the jacket was glued to the card base. The Easter dies are covered with VersaMark ink and SNS Sparkle EP.



Next, a lavender card using MS chunky glitter with the texture of mylar Easter Basket Grass:

Last but not least, a double-embossed "jacket", dry embossed with Couture Creations Secret Garden and wet embossed with SNS Sparkle EP, to match the interior die cut. 
(This is my favorite)




Products Used:
  • Scrapy Land Die-Namites "Spring Egg Scene" DN-1143
  • Scrapy Land Die-Namites "Spring Eggs" DN-1152
  • Scrapy Land Memory Box Cascadia Butterfly Trio
  • Scrapy Land Memory Box Leavenworth Butterfly Trio
  • Spellbinders Classic Squares (create window card base and jacket)
  • Spellbinders Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles (LG) S4-143 (inside sentiment)

Beautiful cards. Always nice to have a bit of glitter on the car, rather than all over us:)

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

Hope you've had a good day. Sue

Karenladd said...

Gorgeous!!! Love all the glittery sparkle and that you used different colors and types of glitter on each of the designs. These are like jewelry!! Funny how you usually make 5x7 cards, so this was stretch for you because I can never find enough to fill a 5x7 card myself!

pam said...

How gorgeous your Easter cards Donna, love this egg die, peeking through your window cut out and your egg border.
My favorite is the last one in pinks and one gorgeous butterfly with lots of sparkle.

These are so pretty, Donna! I like making A2 cards - much easier for mailing, like you said! I love all the sparkle! You have some amazing dies!

Leslie Miller said...

I just cannot get over the amazing sparkly glittery fantastic beautiful card fronts! I couldn't possibly pick a favorite, but I do think the mylar-appearing glitter is pretty fabulous for an Easter card. Love that they're flat, too. I have a hard time with anything bigger than A2. I guess it's just what you're used to, right? These are completely wonderful, Donna!

Benzi said...

Wow! Donna, your cards are full of delightful Spring images, dies, embossing, and glitters. I've never used the chunky glitter...well, maybe some clear chunky. Yours is super.
You've made beautiful Spring and Easter creations.
I like your new header, too.

MaryH said...

You don't just make a spectacular card, you make a whole bunch of 'em! Each one has (once more!) a unique look with the materials & colors you've selected. Really liked the difference in the glitter textures too. Love the framing technique, the little egg border cut trim and those lovely diecuts in the picture frame. So lovely, each of them. TFS & Hugs
