Scrappy Tails Crafts

Fairy Silhouette Cards | Scrappy Tails Crafts

Hello crafty friends. Today I get to show you some of the new products from the latest release from Scrappy Tails Crafts. The latest release is inspired by Shakespeare’s, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” and it is a gorgeous release! I created a couple of silhouette cards using the Fairy Silhouette Dies, and the A2 Cloud Cover Plate Die.

When I think of silhouettes, I think black cardstock or ink, but I wanted my silhouettes to be colorful and bright. So, for my first card I die cut the two fairies sitting together with some white cardstock, and I colored them in using Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink. I also used some Distress Oxide inks to create my colorful backgrounds.

For card two I used gold embossing powder to heat emboss the fairy and some of the butterflies. To create the cloud frame, I used the A2 Cloud Cover Plate and cut it down. I wanted it to be a little bit smaller to sit my fairies on it and frame the sentiments.

If you’d like to see how I created these two cards, check out my process video below:

Happy Sunday, and I hope you all enjoy your day!!

Clear Stamp of the Month, Colored Pencils, Spellbinders

Sending Floral Wishes Mini Slimline Card | Spellbinders Clear Stamp Club | July 2021

I have another mini slimline card to show you all today! This A2 size is all I used to create, but I am having so much fun creating different sized cards–especially the mini slimline. The stamp set I used for this card is from Spellbinders; it’s their Clear Stamp of the Month for July! I love a great floral stamp, and this one is stunning! It’s called, “Sending Floral Wishes.”

The sentiments are fabulous, and it includes a stamp that you can stamp on the flap of your mini slimline envelopes to write out your return address.

To create my card I used the largest floral stamp and stamped it with white pigment ink onto a piece of Blue Spruce cardstock. I wanted to emboss it with white embossing powder, but I needed to color it in first with colored pencils–hence the white pigment ink first. The colored pencils would scrape off the embossed lines if I embossed it first.

After I colored it in, I positioned my panel back into my Mini Misti and stamped it again with clear embossing ink. I stamped it up a few times, and then poured over some white embossing powder and melted it with my heat tool.

I cut down my panel with a die from Spellbinders’ July Large Die of the Month set. I also cut out a piece of Wild Berry cardstock with a die from this set. The white and silver baker’s twine was a fun finishing touch because the scallops on the die cut panel held it in place so nicely.

Here is my process video for this card:

Clear Stamp of the Month, Small Die of the Month, Spellbinders

Decorative Mini Slimline Card Creator | Spellbinders July Small Die of the Month | 2021

Hello crafty friends! I am loving the mini slimline card size lately, and Spellbinders is fueling that love this month with their mini slimline die clubs. The small die for July cuts out an ornate panel to put on your cards. There are 5 cutting dies that you can mix and match.

Here is a picture of them all laid out on my craft mat. The sentiment die included in this set says, “For You.”

I used the 3 slimline dies to cut out a beautiful panel with some brushed gold cardstock. I also used the Clear Stamp of the Month called, “Sending Floral Wishes.” It includes sentiments that fit perfectly inside the window die. I used the large floral stamp from this set and the sentiment that says, “wishing you an amazing day.”

I heat embossed these stamps using Antique Gold embossing powder, and then I colored in my flowers using Zig Brushes. Here are the colors I used:

Zig Brushes: Largest Flower – Light Carmine & Pink,

Small flowers – Tea Rose,

Leaves – Light Green & Green,

Centers – Yellow

I used Bristol Smooth cardstock for this. The Zig brushes blend beautifully on this paper!

If you’d like to see how this card came together, here is my process video:

Thank you for visiting my blog! Have a lovely day!

Magical Fairy Light-Up Card | Scrappy Tails & Pear Blossom Press Collab Hop

Welcome to the Scrappy Tails and Pear Blossom Press Collab Hop! Today, we’re sharing lots of whimsical cards that will really brighten your day. They feature dreamy new stamps and dies from Scrappy Tails, and with a little help from Pear Blossom Press, they all light up!  Be sure to hop along with us for lots of inspiration; our designers have come up with some stunning cards…

For the card I’m creating today, I’m using a beautiful new stamp called Fairy Girl. She has the most beautifully detailed wings and hair–I had so much fun coloring her in! To do this I stamped her out onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and colored her in with Zig brushes. To create the night sky around her, I used the A2 Cloud Frame Cover Plate. This set also includes lots of dies to decorate your sky. I used the moon and two of the stars.

Then to add even more magic, I used an EZ Light to light up the moon and stars in front of her. This really takes the card to the next level, and I love it! They are so fun and easy to use. I added more stars in the sky with a white gel pen.

Below you can see what it looks like when I press the button to turn on the lights.

Check out my video below to see how I put this card together.

Here is the hop list. Make sure to check out all the fabulous inspiration! Thanks for hopping by! Have a lovely weekend!

Large Die of the Month, Spellbinders

Mini Slimline Envelope & Nested Card Creator | Spellbinders July Large Die of the Month 2021

Spellbinders took it over the top this month with their Large Die of the Month Club. They’ve created an “essentials” set of mini slimline dies, and they are fabulous! You get 16 dies which includes a mini slimline envelope creator. It even includes a happy birthday die, so I created a birthday card using this set. Lastly, it includes some floral dies to decorate your cards!

The nested dies all have really cute etched details on them. Some have dot edges and some have the scallops. There is so much you could do with this set! It also coordinates beautifully with the Clear Stamp of the Month.

I used all the dies from this set and cut them out with the gorgeous new cardstock from Spellbinders. I layered them, and it created some fun dimension. I used the same cardstock for the flowers and added some pops of green with the leaves.

Using the envelope dies you can create two types of envelopes–a portrait and a landscape. You can also create two sized of these envelopes depending on what score line you fold down. The clear stamp of the month includes a pretty stamp that you can use on the flap of your portrait envelope to write out your return address.

This card was really fast and fun to put together. You could make up a bunch of them for your stash.

Here is the process video. Thanks for watching!

I hope you have a lovely day!

Be Mermazing Watercolor Cards | Not 2 Shabby Shop June Release

Hello my friends, Hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far! I’m having fun creating summer cards, and today I’m using a stamp sets from the Not 2 Shabby Shop’s June release. This set is called, “Be Mermazing,” and it’s filled with the cutest underwater creatures as well as the prettiest mermaid.

I created two wreath cards with this set, and I used two different watercolor mediums to color them in as well as the backgrounds.

I also have a 10% off coupon code for you from the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10

Card 1: Underwater Wreath Card

For my first card I stamped out all the images with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and then heat embossed them with Clear embossing powder. The paper I used was Stonehenge hotpress watercolor paper. To color in these images I used some liquid watercolors–Dr. Ph Martin watercolor. This was my first time using these watercolors, and I really enjoyed using them–they are vibrant and beautiful.

The raised lines of my heat embossed images made watercoloring them fast and easy. I had so much paint left over in my butcher’s tray that I decided to create some backgrounds with it. I dipped a watercolor paper panel into the blue and green and purple paint, and it turned out with a smooth, marbled look. I was able to use this panel for both cards.

Card 2: Mermaid & Pearls Shaker Card

On card #2 I stamped out the pearls and shells image out several times. I wanted to create a shaker window with this single image. Again I heat embossed the images, but this time I colored them in with some Zig Real Brush Pens.

I fussy cut out all the images and glued the pearls and shells together to create a circle. I then glued on a panel of acetate and popped it up with a double layer of foam adhesive. I used a lot of clear confetti pieces inside the shaker. I also popped up the mermaid on the outside to match the height of the shaker window.

Below is the process video. I hope you enjoy it!

Large Die of the Month, Spellbinders

Colorblock Circles & Stripes Slimline Card | Spellbinders Large Die of the Month | June 2021

Hello fellow card crafters. Happy Friday! Today I get to show you the Large Die of the Month from Spellbinders. If you like the paper strips technique, then you are going to love this die set. The largest die cuts out 3 different sizes of paper strips that will fit on an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch slimline card; however, you can cut the strips down to any card size you want, of course. The set also includes 3 different sentiments and some fabulous decorative dies.

To create this card I cut out a lot of different colors of the new Spellbinders Color Essentials cardstocks. I cut out a lot so I have strips to make additional cards. I put some Stick-It adhesive on a 3 1/4 x 8 1/4 panel of white cardstock and started adding my strips. This adhesive is great because it allows you to reposition your cardstock if you need to. Once you have the strips where you want them, you can press them into the panel with a bonefolder, and they will stick tight.

I used the Happy Birthday sentiment die and cut it out with Poppy Field cardstock and backed it with Raindrop cardstock. I used the decorative dies to create circles around the sentiment and a couple of rainbows. To finish off the card I added some crystal gems.

Below you will see all of the die cuts from this set:

Here is my process video. I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you for visiting! Have a lovely weekend!

Spellbinders, Spellbinders Small Die of the Month

Color Block Slices Cards | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month | June 2021

Hello my friends! Welcome back. Today I’m showing you the Small Die of the Month for June. This die set is my favorite so far! It’s so creative, and you can do so many things with it. It is fabulous!! I created three cards with this set, and I will be creating many, many more.

For my first card I created a desert scene. I love the little cactus die in this set! You may not know this, but I am a desert girl living in the Midwest world. I love the desert. The largest die from this set cuts out the desert scene, and I used it to cut out several different colors of cardstock. To make each layer pop, I inked up the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink. I used more colors of Distress Oxide Inks to create my sunset. I used Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violet, Crackling Campfire and Wild Honey.

I used the Clear Stamp of the Month for June for my sentiment. The stamp set coordinates beautifully with this die set. I glued everything down flat except the sentiment which I popped up with foam tape. I used a few of Spellbinders’ gold gems on this card.

For card two I used the triangle die to create the rays of the sun. I cut it out with Beeswax and Persimmon cardstock. I cut out five of each color, and then I used the leftovers scraps to cut out five more rays. I used more Spellbinders cardstock to cut out the mountains and the river–I have the exact colors I used for each card listed in the supply links below. Again, I used the Clear Stamp of the Month for the sentiment.

I had so much fun creating my third card. I used the triangle die and cut out several cardstocks. I glued them down flat with liquid adhesive and popped up the sentiment with foam tape. I love the look of this card!

Here is my process video:
