Red Christmas Ornament

 Hello everyone! This is Berina here today, with a Christmas card - I know it's August, but I do like to get started on making a few different designs early and then decide on the one which I will be making for my family in India. Since this goes overseas, I like to mail them before Thanksgiving.

I used the Noel Ornament die set from Heartfelt Creations. I love the red and gold combo. I used ivory card base and layered gold and ivory card stock. To ground the ornament I added a holly bough, die cut with Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens die set and added a few red pearls as berries. For the sentiment, I used Divinity Designs Christmas Mini Set. I used my Craftwell SNAP to die cut all the elements.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

Airbrushed galaxy cake


Today I'm here with a galaxy theme cake decorated using Craftwell eBrush

I began with baking cake and frosted completely using colors blue, pink, purple, black to bring the galaxy effect. I also made planets using fondant.  

To bring more galaxy effect, I have used Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit with silver luster dust mixed with lemon extract. Then airbrushed then and there on the cake to bring sparkly effect. 

Attaching my work for reference. 

Thank you,

DT: Christmas in July Ornaments, Tags, and Card


 Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made some Christmas ornaments, tags, and with a leftover cut, a card.
For the ornaments I used clear plastic ornaments from Michaels (the ones that open in the middle) and used some die cuts from the Anna Griffin "Christmas Sentiment die set" and some Chunky glitter.

I used some metallic cardstock (a lead color) and hot glued the die cut to one of the half of the ornament, added some glitter to it and closed the ornament, and hot glued some glitter ribbon around the seam.

For the shaker cards, I used the kit of the month (from a few years ago) from Sizzix. I used the glitter card stock included in the kit to cut the outlines and regular cardstock for the back. For the back of the star, I used another Sizzix die that I had. I complemented the look with die cuts using Spellbinder dies and glitter cardstock.

With the leftover AG Christmas sentiment die cuts, I made cards:


I used the Holiday card kit from CTMH, stamps and ink:

I cut all the die cuts with my SNAP.

More ornaments:

I hope you enjoyed my few projects and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Merry Christmas in July

Blue Flowers

Hello everyone! This is Berina here today, with a floral thank you card using beautiful blue flowers.

I used the Climber Flowers die set from Altenew to die cut the flowers and leaves on my SNAP machine. I have set this machine on my craft table and it's easier to use it for most of my die cutting now. I die cut them on white card stock and colored them with alcohol markers. It's easy to assemble by looking at the layering guide. Once I had the flowers and leaves all assembled, I took a white card base and used the Woven Stencil from Altenew to add a bit of a pattern to the card base. I arranged the flowers and leaves in the way I wanted and adhered them down. For the sentiment, I used the Fancy Hello die, again from Altenew, in black.

How do you like this card today? Please do let me know in the comments. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

Airbrush Photo Frames

 Hi everyone!

Katie here with a fun project of making custom airbrushed photo frames to which can be great gifts. 

They can be made custom to whoever you give it to or maybe just for yourself 😉


Craftwell eBrush and eBosser

Sharpie markers

Rectangle square frame cutting dies from Amazon

Sizzix Thinlit Hot Air Balloon (used the flower dies)

Bristol board paper

Double-sided square foam tape

A variety of cardstock

Chose 2 sets of Sharpie markers and used Craftwell eBrush to airbrush on Bristol board paper. 
Took the airbrushed papers and die cut into them with the rectangle square frames.

Used the eBosser to die cut into my cardstock papers of flowers and stars, slowly started to assemble everything. 
I'll just say I would sometimes misplace the flowers since their so small 😂

Below are the finish project:

What's great about these is you can place them into actual photo frames and then gift it.

I hope everyone enjoyed my project and put your own touch on it!
Until next time.

DT: Using Recycled Negative Die Cuts in Finnabair Style


This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. 
Today, I wanted to show you two different projects I made using the Tattered Lace Magazine free alphabet dies from 2015.

First project, I'll show you what I made with the positive alpha die cuts.
I used the positive alpha die cuts made from thicker kraft cardstock as embossing patter for the class project title:

 I attached the letters to painters tape and made a sandwich using foil, the painters tape and a foam sheet. I run the whole sandwich through the SNAP and used the embossed words as title, hand embossing the numbers.

This went really nicely with the students' class project on the right side below:

 Last year I participated in Art Venture 2021's class 
Inspired by that class, I decided to make my second project recycling the negative cuts from the alphabet strip I had cut for the school Gala class project for my daughter's class as part of the background design, and I to recycle an iPad packaging as canvas instead of the original journal covers.

Here is Finnabair's class example:

In short and without going into details, I followed Finnabair's instructions and finished my two wall hangings:

Craftwell Tools
SNAP die cut machine

Other Companies:

Prima Art Venture by Gather Class Kit
Dies:  2015 Alphabet Magazine free gift, Tattered Lace
Used Tissue Paper
Mini iPad case
Cloth Tags

Here are some closeups of the lovely final collages:

 I hope you enjoy it these fun projects and please follow my blog as well: vicky's scrapping passion.

Happy summer,

Pink and Coral Flowers

Hello everyone! This is Berina here today, sharing a beautiful summery floral card using 3D Embossing Folders on Cut N Boss.

I used the Altenew 3D Embossing Folders on my Craftwell Cut N Boss for this card. You might have seen me using some of these before too. I used the Decorative Florals 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the beautiful florals on an oval die cut. Then I used my alcohol markers to color the embossed image. It's really easier to achieve this no-line coloring look on these embossed florals than it looks. For the background, I embossed a coral card stock with Illusion Triangles, also from Altenew. The sentiment is die cut using Altenew - Fancy Thanks die on my SNAP. I also decided to make a matching envelope by embossing the lower part of the envelope with the same embossing folder.

I love how this card turned out. What do you say? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

Shimmering Pearl Cake

Hello everyone! This month I'm with a simple pearl shimmering cake.  I baked an 8 inch moist cake and covered it with cream shade fondant. The client asked for shimmering effect on cake. Hence I have used silver luster dust mixed with lemon extract and airbrushed using Craftwell eBrush & siphon kit.

Attaching the picture for reference. 

Thank you,

National Chocolate Ice Cream Day

 Hi everyone!

Today is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day!! 

Who doesn't love them some ice cream especially when it's chocolate?

I know I do! I just couldn't pass on the opportunity to make a card for today.


Craftwell eBosser
Ice cream from a Summer Treats Die Set (don't remember the brand)
Sizzix Thinlits Die Set (used the banners)
Sweet word die from KSCRAFT
Prismacolor Colored Pencils
Staedtler Fineliner Markers
Small pad of pattern paper (from Michaels)
Double-sided foam stickers

Used the ice cream dies and cut into some white cardstock and hand colored each ice cream. Took some of the pattern paper and used the banners to cut into them. Did the same with the sweet word and assembled everything together. What great about this card is that it can be used birthdays or even as a thank you card. 

Hope you enjoyed my project! Until next time.
