DT: Virgen Del Valle Magnet

 


Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a frame for a picture magnet from a painting of mine:


I took the picture magnet and added to white card stock. In the back I added a print out of Our Lady of the Valley story:


The frame is double sided, so that the nice gold foiled frame could accent better the story in the back as well.

I made the frame out of die cuts from the Tattered Lace Column set dies (one of my favorites) using my SNAP machine while at work. I made this frame picture magnet for one of my bosses for his birthday.


I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy, though elegant project and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy October,

and stay safe from this pandemic.

Light Up Balloon

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here on the blog today, with a light-up card. Believe it or not, this is my first light-up card and certainly won't be my last :)


I made this for my Dad's birthday. I started by making the card base. I took an A2 card base and adhered a light blue cardstock panel on to it. I folded the top of  the card base in to half, to make the easel. I die cut the hot air balloon using the Sizzix Hot Air Balloon die, on card stock and vellum using my Cut N Boss. I slightly colored the vellum with Brutus Monroe inks. I sandwiched the lights in between the cardstock and the vellum balloons and adhered it there and then placed the yellow pieces on the balloon. I die cut a few clouds using the die from the same die set. I adhered the switch part of the light behind one of the clouds. I die cut a banner and wrote 'Happy Birthday' since I couldn't find a stamp that would fit in it. I die cut another banner using another stamp set and wrote 'Dear Appa' - Appa is how I call him and it means Dad in our language Tamil. I adhered this banner with foam tape, on the inside of the card and it will serve as the 'stopper' for the easel. Here's a pic of it with the lights on:

And here's one with it flat, ready for the envelope:

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

It's Autumn here

Hi folks, 

Today I'm here with a fall theme 3D cake using Craftwell eBrush

I began with baking a basic vanilla sponge cake and cut into mini round circles. Then stacked and frosted those mini cake layers. Thinking pumpkin shape in mind, I tried to carve the same in the cake. Once getting desired shape, I covered the cake with fondant. Also made few fondant leaves using cutters along with this. Then used my Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit to give life to those mini pumpkins and leaves.







Thanks everyone for stopping by and see you soon with another project.

With love,

DT: Nurse’s Office Door Sign

 


Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to use my SNAP to create a door sign for my work:


I got some ideas from Pinterest, but decided to use flowers instead of stars to make it my own.

I wanted to continue the same design I used for my sanitation stations. Thus, I cut letters and Tiles from DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows paper, using the BoBunny larger alpha dies and Tattered Lace dies.

Here are some of the dies and the paper pack I used:


I cut a 7.5 x 7.5 in square out of chalk board paper. I cut 3 pieces (7 x 2 in.) of gold thick card stock to make the frames for the word tiles. For the smaller tiles, I cut 6 DCWV paper rectangles (3 x 1.5 in.) to frame the 2.75 x 1.25 in. black chalk board paper. I glued all frame titles using double side tape to the big chalk board square leaving an upper border to add my title.

Then, I cut flowers, leaves, and the alpha die cuts using my SNAP machine. 


Then, I trimmed 2 cards from the cards printed paper to die cut my smily face in gold and the (Craftwell) paper clip heart. I glued them together and glued it to a wooden cloth pin to make my sign marker.


Later, I realized that I should have glued the die cuts separated and on both side of the cloth pin, so remedied that by die cutting an arrow from the left over card and adding touches of black with a marker to emphasize the arrow and I added more black around the heart (not shown), the smily face. I paper pieced a nurse's hat and colored the cross with red gel pen:



Here some closer views of the finished door sign:


Again, I was able to use my SNAP machine while at work and now I have a nice sign to make me smile while I'm working.


I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy September,

and stay safe from this pandemic.

Airbrushed Firetruck Cake

Hello friends! Today I'm here with simple Firetruck Cake designed using Craftwell eBrush with siphon kit.

I baked a eggless vanilla cake of 6 inch and layered with fresh strawberry compote. Frosted using whipped cream of white.



The client is very keen on specific blue which can't be achieved with mixing food colors in whipped cream. So I used my Craftwell eBrush to achieve the desired color. The below picture shows the airbrush effect on cake.


Here is the final look of the firetruck cake.



Thanks everyone for stopping by!

Pop-up Pram

Hello everyone!! Welcome back to our blog. This is Berina here and I'm sharing this cute baby girl card with a surprise pop-up today.

One of our friends had a baby girl recently and I decided to make a card to welcome the baby. I used a white and soft pink theme for the card. I took an A2 card base and adhered the front with a baby pink panel. I took a white cardstock panel slightly smaller than A2 and adhered it on top. I die cut the Poppy Stamps Diamond background die on a baby pink card stock and adhered it on the white panel. I die cut pink layers using 2 dies from Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die set and layered it with plain white squares. On the smallest white square, I stamped the sentiment Welcome Little One from Tubby Craft - Fancy Sentiments stamp set. I adhered the layers using foam tape. Now I die cut some flowers and leaves using Karen Burniston - Popup flower pot die set and adhered them on the front.

Now on to the inside, I created a pop-up pram. I die cut the cute little pram using the Crafter's Companion - Baby Carriage die and adhered it as a pop-up using thin strips of pink card stock. I die cut a few baby accessories using the Crafter's Companion - Baby Accessories die set and adhered them on the inside of the card. 

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

DT: Sanitation Station- Back to School

 



Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to use my SNAP to create titles and signs for 5 sanitation stations for my work:

I used dollar store containers and chalk board signs/ tags. I cut letters from DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows paper, using the BoBunny larger alpha dies and TH Sizzix dies. Then, I run the words stuck backwards and upside down through my Xyron sticker maker and glued the words to the chalkboard tags:


I even cut some monograms and added them to the mini chalk board signs. I didn't have much time to finish the 5 stations, so I didn't search for medical related dies to decorate further my stations. I will for sure better this project soon.

The end result is cute and very practical. It was a nice project to do quickly using my SNAP machine while at work.


I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy Back to School


and stay safe from this pandemic.

Tri-fold Shaker Card

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here on the blog today, with this tri-fold, see through shaker thank you card.
I started by making the see through shaker. I die cut 2 hot air balloons using the Sizzix Hot Air Balloon Die on the patterned paper pad from Brutus Monroe. I took a piece of string attached the balloon and the basket part to it, leaving enough length at both ends of the string, so that I can attach the ends of the string to the frame. Now I adhered the other balloon and the basket on the back side, so that the thread is sandwiched between the 2 pieces of balloons and both front and back looks the same. I took a panel of size 4 3/4" x 5 1/2" of card base weight (110 lbs) and scored at 1/2" mark along the 4 3/4" side. This 1/2" will later be adhered to a A2 card base, making a tri-fold. In this panel, I cut out a window leaving a border of 1/2" along all sides. I adhered acetate on to it. I sandwiched the thread from the hot air balloon between the window panel and foam tape, on the top and bottom. I added shaker mix from Doodles Paper Playground. I closed the shaker with acetate on other side as well. I took out a panel of Silver glitterstock from Brutus Monroe and cut out a window frame, leaving 1/2" around all the sides. I adhered this frame on the shaker panel, to hide the foam tape.
Now I took a regular A2 card base and adhered the 1/2" extending out from the shaker panel on to one end of the card base. I inked one of the panels with BM Speckled Ink with the BM Cloud stencil to create a sky like scene. I die cut the sentiment "Thanks" using the BM thanks die on silver glitterstock and added it to the panel. Here's a view of the card, fully opened up.

How do you like this card? Please do let me know your thoughts and comments. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

Airbrushed Coffee Mug Cake

Hello everyone! Today, I've got a 3D cake design which I used the Craftwell eBrush.

I began with baking chocolate cake, stacked cake of 4 layers and carved them to achieve a coffee mug shape. Once I got the desired shape, frosted the mug carefully using whipped cream.

For the handle, I used fondant with wire support to hold the handle shape. You will see the mug shape cake below:

Then I used my Craftwell eBrush & siphon kit to color the mug cake in a brown shade. It's so simple and easy with the eBrush is in hand to achieve the design.
Though the shape is not perfect, I'm still happy with my result. I hope you all were inspired and make your version ;)
Thanks everyone for stopping by!!
