Beautiful Easter Together, Scraplifting Kat Benjamin!

Hey y’all, Ali here! Happy August! I am so excited about this month, the Sparklers are scraplifting some super talented ladies this month. This week we are kicking it off with Kat Benjamin! She is such a sweet person and her layouts always pop! I have actually wanted to scraplift this layout since the first time I saw it, but I never got around to it! So I finally did it, woohoo!!

I loved the composition of her layout, so I really wanted to stay true to that. I started with some acrylic paints and just brushed it onto the white cardstock with a dry brush and minimal paint to create that really fun messy look. When that dried, I added some Peach Fuzz Paste-Eez through a geometric stencil to add dimension and texture…a few strips of washi tape finished off my background. I was shocked at how quickly this layout came together.

I backed my photos with some patterned paper, created the little “Easter” tag, and added my title. My finishing touches are always the super fun sequins (of course)! So I sprinkled some “What’s Up Buttercup” sequin mix throughout. The thing I love most about this mix are those adorable little flowers! They really scream Spring, and were perfect for my Easter layout!

This layout was a bit outside of my “box” but I absolutely love how Kat’s layout inspired me to get a little messy and the outcome is so fun and Easter-y! I hope you love it too!

Easter Shaker Card with Katty Miranda

Cards, tags

Hello Friends! Happy Easter! I hope you are all having a wonderful day! Today I am sharing a fun Easter Shaker card I created. I began by cutting down white cardstock which will be my  card base to 6×6 inches. I also cut an additional piece of white cardstock to 6×6 inches. I ran that piece of cardstock through my Silhouette Cameo and cut out an oval in the center of the 6×6 cardstock. I then used a Teresa Collins diagonal stripe stencil with the beautiful Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Lemon Drop Yellow from the Spiegelmom Scraps Shop. That will be the front of my card. I used 2 pieces of patterned paper and cut two strips which will divide my shaker pockets in my oval, the idea is to make it look like an Easter Egg.  I used a Studio 112 stamp and white embossing powder to stamp the sentiment “Some Bunny Loves You” on the 2 patterned paper strips.

I then used scotch foam mounting tape to raise the front of my card and create my shaker. I filled my shaker with the beautiful Spring Bloom Sequin Mix. I then added a pink bunny which I stamped on velum and 3 small Easter eggs which I stamped on white cardstock. The bunny and the Easter eggs are both from the same Studio 112 Stamp set. Here is my finished card. I love how bright and fun it is. I hope you like it too.
