DT: Fiesta Ribbon Medals


Hi, 

This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. 

I live in San Antonio, Texas and April is its Fiesta month.
In my kids school, we did a Fiesta celebration on April 30th and I was in charge of arranging a show box parade for the little ones.
So I made Fiesta ribbon medals for the winners:


In short:

I bought already made birthday ribbons with the pin in the back and converted them in fun Fiesta Medals (that's a big item here, everybody collects them during April).
I stamped sentiments and cute little Fiesta critters from HeroArts and cut them with their complimentary die cut.
I stamped sentiments directly in the ribbons used for the Fiesta Wreaths and even the chihuahua/ tacos directly to them using the FSJ licorice black ink. And colored everything with gel pens.


Then, I used my hot glue gun to assemble the medals. I used small Mexican hats, decorated them with rhinestone ribbon, to cover the "birthday" sentiment.
Those were super cute and quick to make.
I did prizes for these categories:

"Fiesta Diversity"
"Fiesta Medal Craze"
And
"#ILoveTacosSoMuch"

Don't the little ones look so cute with their ribbon medals and their shoe boxes floats?

Calla Lilies

 Hello everyone! This is Berina here today with a elegant floral card. 

I love these Calla Lilies from Heartfelt Creations. I have had them for quite some time now. I stamped and die cut the flowers and leaves and colored them with inks. Then I used my flower shaping tools to give them some definition. I colored few Q tips with yellow ink for the center part of the calla lilies. To assemble them, I used hot glue gun. I also stamped and die cut some fillers from Heartfelt Creations - Tulip Vase & Fillers. For the card base, I used a 5x7 Ivory card base. I die cut few frames from the Heartfelt Creations - Royal Elegance Frames on gold card stock. The sentiment is from Just Rite stamps. This is one of my favorite sets for sentiments, mainly because of the font. I also die cut a design from Heartfelt Creations - Swirly Accent Spray and added them to the card.

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

Airbrush Sneaker

 Hi everyone! 

It's Katie with another project and I finally got a chance to airbrush the other sneaker.

I got to brainstorming on what could compliment the other airbrushed sneaker, so I decided on a landscape around the sneaker. 




Materials:

Craftwell eBrush Airbrush System

One used sneaker

Sharpie marker adapter

Sharpie markers (used about 7 colors)

Painters tape

Gloves




First thing, I lined the bottom of the sneaker that I don't want to airbrush with the painters tape.

I airbrushed free-hand and only had a photo as a reference. But if need assistance, you can always take a pencil or pen and do a rough drawing onto the sneaker. If you never used the eBrush, I would suggest you test it out on paper and get familiar with it before airbrushing anything.

How I started off with airbrushing was starting with light to dark colors, and free-handed all the smaller details such as the mountains and trees. 

*When airbrushing, it's best to work on top of a piece of cardboard or something so you don't stain your workplace.


Here is the finished product:








Here's both finished sneakers:


In case you missed my post for the other sneaker: 


Hope you all enjoyed my project and was inspired. Until next!!

DT: Love Browny - Minialbum




Hi, 

This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. 

I have been accumulating the Graphic 45 monthly kits since their beginning, thus, I finally decided to reminiscence on my paw-baby in doggie heaven and used the 2021 Vol. 9 Well Groomed kit.
I changed some of the suggested papers from the kit with background papers from the complementary Graphic 45 paper pad.

In short:

First, I created several shaker elements as embellishments using the Dog's Life kit.
I tried to recreated my boy as best as I could using the elements from the kit and some PowerPuff chalks:


No too bad comparing him with the original Browny:


Then, I followed the instructions from the Well Groomed kit, just changing some of the papers with the background papers without flowers (which are also cute but not what I wanted to portrait for our dear 16 year old male dog).

Then, I used tacky glue to glue the papers to the thick black cardboard sheets. And decorated the title page using the shaker elements that I had died cut previously.

For some pages, I used the TC Beautiful Words embossing folder to emboss the dark mats before attaching them to the pages:


I'm still working on decorating the inside pages with the G45 ephemera/post cards elements and stickers as well as more shaker die cuts I made. I really like the ribbon suggested binding of the book and might do it, attaching my Browny's rabies shot tag as dangle. Once I finish the album, I'll post it to.

Here are some close ups from the title page shaker elements.


Finally, I die cut the letters to spell "Browny" using two different G45 papers and glued them to the "love" shaker to finish the album title page.


I used the BoBunny alpha die for the "B" and the TH alpha dies for the rest.

Comparing both albums:
 Suggested Graphic 45’s album:

And mine uncompleted one:


As I mentioned previously, I ended up changing the background paper of all the pages, but one (the multi-colored paw printed page)...

Airbrush Tote Bag

 Hi everyone!

Katie here with another project using the eBrush Airbrush System and anyone can do.

I'm those type of people who brings a reusable tote bag with me everywhere and I thought it would be find to customize my own. This is a fun project for all ages.







Materials:

Craftwell eBrush Airbrush System

Sharpie Markers

Blank Canvas Tote Bag (I got mine from a 99 cent store)

Variety of stencils from Amazon

Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint - Metallic Blue, Metallic Gold & Slick Leaf Green

Puffy Paint - Red Violet

Scotch 3M Painters Tape

Elmer's Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive

Gloves

Cardboard pieces


First thing, I chose 3 different stencil designs I can play around with and work well together. Also chose 3 different marker colors and 4 fabric paints that compliment each other.

Take a piece of cardboard, placed it inside the tote bag so the colors don't bleed through and gives me a somewhat flat surface to work on. Taking the scotch painters tape, I line a border and other places I don't want to get airbrushed. *Make sure tape is close to the tote because any open gaps will not give you clean lines. 

Taking my first stencil, I used the painters tape to hide some of the details I don't want to airbrush onto the bag. I used the spray adhesive to help keep the stencil in place which worked better than taping it to the bag because when I taped down the stencil, it wasn't able to hold down the intricate details and you won't get clean lines. I only realized this after it happened to me and you might be able to see it on the tote bag. Trial and errors. *Make sure to read the instructions on the spray adhesive can before using.



With each stencil, I alternated with each marker and had fun with each placement. When that was done, I did the same with the fabric paint. Make sure to let it dry or it will smudge and again I did learn the hard way 😅


Hope you all enjoyed my project. Until next time!!

Katie

Simple Thanks

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today with a simple card that can be made in batches.

It's nearing the end of school year and I've been experimenting with quick and elegant cards to give to the teachers as sets. This is on of the designs. I used the Crafters Companion Victoriana die for this card. For the sentiment, I chose the Altenew Fancy Hello, which pairs so elegantly with the Victoriana die. I used my SNAP to die cut them. It's pretty simple to die cut and assemble the card. I could die cut all at once and then assemble them. That would be pretty quick and easy I think.

What do you think about this card? Do let me know. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

DT: Hidden Garden Sitting Chart


 


Hi, 

This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. 

For this post, I was asked to decorate a sitting chart for our school's gala. The theme for the gala was the hidden garden. So I went with the theme.

I made a video from a PowerPoint Presentation I made to explain the techniques and steps I did for creating this sitting chart:

Here are some closer views of the different elements I created:


I really love this flower drapery die and coordinated charisma from Tattered Lace, so I had it ready for my next project, which was perfect for creating a secret garden theme stage.

The decorative borders and corners dies from Graphic 45 were also a perfect match for this project.


I went with DCWV gold printed paper for the die cuts of the words/ numbers and corners/ border because I love how this paper looks like glitter chunks reflecting in the light.

For the tables and 8 chairs, I went with hearts doilies with the gold number die cuts.


I mounted each piece with foam squares to give them more depth.

This was a fun project to make and I did not have much time and only used the supplies I had at my workplace.
