Back to school cookies for teachers

Hello Everyone,

Swathi here from CookiesCakeandLove. This time around I made some sugar cookies for my son’s teacher and frosted it with white frosting and airbrushed it with eBrush to give a nice color to the cookies.

I made the cookies using the sugar cookie recipe from preppy kitchen blog and iced it with Wilton readymade white royal icing.

I cut out apple and star shapes to make my back to school cookies and airbrushed it after the royal icing dried for half hour and solid to touch.

It made great gifts and everyone loved it. The Craftwell eBrush made my job simpler and looking forward to make many more cookies for gifting this holiday season.

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!! This is  Berina here, with a shinning and shimmering Christmas card.

I embossed a piece of white card stock with a snowflake embossing folder from The Paper Studio. I die cut the Snowflake Ornament die and the bow from Memory Box on Gilded and Scarlet Glitter stock from Brutus Monroe. I cut strips of the glitter stock and adhered it on to the left edge of the card base. I adhered the embossed panel on to the card base and adhered the glitter ornaments on to it. I die cut the sentiment using a die from Your Next Stamp.

Every year, in December I decide that at least the next year, I should start making my Christmas cards early. And that never happens and the cycle continues. This year, I've made a few cards so far, but nowhere near what I will need. This year, I've decided to make cards with die cutting - it's so much easier and faster to do on my Cut 'n Boss, and so much prettier also, with lots of options. Have you started your Christmas cards yet? Do let me know. What do you think about this card? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.

Save Nature,Save Wildlife

Hello everyone!!.This is lavanya with you here today. I'm a new addition to craftwell family.
Today my post is all about wildlife cake design  with a craftwell eBrush.

Wildlife silhouette cake🦒🐒🐘

With over joy in using the eBrush, I sprayed the colors close to the cake and unfortunately colors got bled. Later realized the mistake,wiped the bled colors and gave a second try. Fingers crossed🤞 . This time its the success.

Save Nature,Save Wildlife

I really enjoy using craftwell eBrush and I felt that very minimal amount of colors are consumed by craftwell  eBrush for this entire cake.

Thanks everyone for giving me this opportunity  to try out new ideas and methods. I assure that I come up with much more designs in the upcoming post. Please share your valuable comments and feedbacks. See you on next post.

Creepy Cute Keepsake Box

Hello everyone, Desiree’ with you today!

To share a ”Creepy Cute”, keepsake box.
That I altered, I began with a heart shaped balsa wood box from my stash.
I covered it with  a layer of white gesso.
Next I traced around the bottom of my box, and around the lid, 
then I cut it out of my patterned paper.
Since I wanted to be able to remove the lid easily I did not want to 
add anything extra under the lid! So I put the lid on the box and measured 
the space from where the lid ended to the bottoms of the box.
I cut 2 paper strips out of my 12x12  paper.
Cutting the down to fit on 1/2 of the box.
I painted the lid, and some embellishments, at this point I decoupaged my paper on too!
Next, I knew I wanted to use my eBrush for some shading.
And so I did. Love my eBrush! I decided to use a deeper color to shade with and I loved it.

Next I added the embellishments I altered! And was done! 

The design is pretty simple. I realize it may seem too soon for "creepy" projects BUT my social media feeds have been full of new releases and Fall everything!
I hope you will understand I just HAD too! LOL
As always I hope you found some inspiration here and are having a very blessed week!

DT: Gift Tags/Bookmarks for the teachers

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
I made some gift tags for the chocolates, I gifted to my kids teachers and wanted to share them with you:

These gift tags are very sturdy and could be use as bookmarks too. I used "Thanks" sentiment stamp from Sizzix, its complimenting circle die, and some religious sentiments dies and doilies from BoBunny for the  bookmark. I also used some Clear Scraps acrylic angel shapes, I had previously alcohol inked for some of the tags/ bookmarks, and decorated them similarly to the circle tags. For some of the tags, I also used shipboard stickers from BoBunny (see the "dream big" tag).

I used my CutNBoss for cutting out the circle tags, sentiments and dollies. I also used some leftover gold foiled printed papers and gold cardstock to cut out the circle tags, the doilies and the sentiments.

Here you can see the angel tags in better detail:

I hope you enjoyed these super easy to make tags/bookmarks and visit my blog for further ideas:

Rose cake to celebrate 100 days of my baby girl

Hello Everyone,

Swathi here from Cookiescakeandlove with a different cake this time. As you all know I recently had a baby and now she has completed 100 days. Don’t know how the time is running but that sure did go by fast. I did a monthly birthday cake for my son but for some reason I wasn’t able to do anything for my daughter. Typical second kid problems 😂😆. Anyhow I wanted to make something for her 100th day.

Since I am new to airbrushing I am still trying to explore the different mediums I can use it with. I made a mini 4” Black Forest cake with fresh cream icing. I piped a rose on top of the cake with fresh cream and used the craftwell ebrush to airbrush red color to the cake. Though I have heard that when airbrushing on fresh cream the color tends to fade after sometime, this dint fade and gave a deep red color to the rose. Hope you like my creation and keep inspiring me to do many more projects.

Thank You Flowers!

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with this simple and elegant floral thank you card.

I embossed a piece of white cardstock with this beautiful flourish embossing folder. I die cut a few flowers in pink and leaves in green using Karen Burniston die. The butterfly die is from Crafter's Companion - Chic Butterflies set. I cut the sentiment using the Creative Expressions die. I then adhered them all down on to an A2 card base.

Then I made a  matching envelope with pink card stock and embossed it with a border embossing folder of the same set as the flourish embossing folder. How do you like this card and envelope? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.

Inspiring Altered Canvas

Greetings crafty dolls and guys from Desiree' of Her Own Fairytale with you!
Happy to be back and sharing my latest project with you all!
An altered canvas inspired by a Quote? A poem? A prayer?
All of the above! All I can say is that it's beautiful and came from an author name Susie Larson. As I recently hit one rough spot in life after another, these words inspired me AND reminded me I AM LOVED.

I started off this project with choosing a paper from the Black Rainbow stack from Michael's and it's an 8x10 canvas. It has all this pretty design and was in my craft stash.

I first flipped my paper over, traced around my canvas and cut it out using my paper trimmer. This will make the decopodging easier.

I put down a coat of white gesso on the canvas and let it dry.
Then I painted the canvas with a coat of white acrylic paint and also let it dry.
After giving them enough time to dry, I adhere my paper to my canvas and again let it dry again with all the decopodging.

I printed out the quote I wanted to use then cut it to bits and glued it down to my canvas. I did this by hand for the most part, clearly. Hehe! #HandmadeNotHallmark am I right?

It was then time to have the Snap machine get to Work!
I die cut some sparkles, a moon and I actually fussy cut out a heart from some other paper collection... from the stash of course.

After the dies are cut, they had to be arranged and adhered, right?
So that is what your girl Did! I used some holographic paper scraps, and even recycled some packaging paper by cutting some of the stars out of it. It was so pretty and hate to waste. Oh, I also had to add some beaded hearts and some sequins!

And this was the final product! I hope you LIKE and get INSPIRED! Most of all I hope you remember IF you are going through a rough time, these beautiful words can remind you too that YOU ARE LOVED! Please come back to visit this blog, be inspired by our other members design templates!

Sending you crafty love always!

DT Post: Bookmarks/ Tags

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to make some religious Bookmarks/ Tags for the end of school teacher’s gifts:

I used a stamp from Prima Marketing for Mary's image and some religious sentiments stamps for the back of the bookmark. Here are the rest of supplies I used:

I used my SNAP for cutting out the tags and the main bookmark using a die set from Paper Wishes club. 

I like to add dangles to my bookmarks and these shippies from Kaiser Crafts with religious sentiments were perfect...

After I added all layers and some stickles, I laminated each bookmark and cut it to size.

I added a ribbon with the dangle and used them as tags for these beautiful orchids I found for the main teachers.

I hope you enjoyed this picture loaded post and visit my blog for further ideas:
