Up Up and Away - Baby Shower Cake

Hello Everyone,

It’s Swathi again from CookiesCakeandLove and I am here with a different project this time. It’s one of my best friend’s baby shower and it was a surprise party. The theme was Up Up and Away and I immediately jumped on the opportunity to make the cake as I wanted to try out some techniques with the airbrush.

I made a chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and was scouring on Pinterest for some decorating ideas.

I took out my trusted Craftwell eBrush with the siphon kit and cut some cloud shaped parchment paper. I used USCake supply’s cool blue airbrush color to add some clouds to the cake to represent that the balloons were high up in the sky.

The clouds came out awesome but I wanted to add the hot air balloons on the cake. So made some paper hot air balloons and stuck them on a toothpick and attached it on the cake. Please see the final outcome of the cake. Hope you all liked it.

Here is another picture from the party. I will be back with another project soon.

Thank you all for checking out my project and I hope you all were inspired by it!!

From Swathi 😘

Thanks A Bunch Card

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today with this Thank you card that I made for one of my doctors.

I started with white card base and folded it to make the Z fold. I cut panels with grey card stock and covered the entire base. I then cut up pieces of light blue card stock and embossed the pieces with the Sophisticated embossing folder on my Cut N Boss. I adhered these blue panels on to all the grey panels. I die cut lots of stars using the Brutus Monroe Star dies on Silver glitter paper and grey card stock and adhered them all over the card. I die cut a small label and inked the inside with BM Sea ink. Then I stamped the sentiment on it with black ink. 

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

Mini Women's Day Cake

Hi folks! Belated women's day❣️ wishes to all the wonderful women out there. To celebrate this women's day, I made a mini chocolate cake designed using Craftwell eBrush.

I baked a mini 3 layer chocolate cake with fresh cream and dressed with a fondant cover.
I carved a woman silhouette figure on black fondant for using it as a cake topper.

I airbrushed the cake using Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit as a pattern over the cake using flower stencil.

Also made a pink rose flower fondant in addition and added those fondant accents on top of cake.
Here is the final design of the cake with women on top.

Love and Luck Tag

Greetings my fellow crafty makers! It is that time of the year again!
You know when the shamrocks and clovers, and luck are in all of our
dancing in our heads! Oh wait. Holiday mixup! My bad! LOL
Anyways... todays project is inspired by St. Patricks Day!
It is simple, but I hope inspiring!

I used my believed eBrush for mist of the project actually!
So I started out with a die cut of a four leaf clover.
Next covered the back of this cut with some Zig 2 Way glue, and let it dry.
Once the two Way Glue dried 'i had a piece 'i could unstick and stick again.
Here's is what the glue looks like before it dried. Once dried it is clear.

After the back of the cut dried, I placed it on my tag and did some eBrushing around the clover.
I wanted to pull attention to it, and I think I accomplished after that.
Next I wanted to do a gradient of sorts, so I eBrushed some deep and lighter green all over the tag.
After that I took off my prepositional clover and hand wrote a sentiment,
I also punched out some tag enforcers? Anyways I punched those out in gold.

Something was missing I felt, so I took the negative part of my die cut and randomly eBrushed
it onto the tag. I liked the effect. Hope you all do too! AND because I love glitter!
I added some chunky star shaped glitter!

The next thing I did was add a few sequins! Because? GOLD! It needed more gold! 

The next pic is the final project! I even used my eBrush and Sharpies to color my white seam binding
green! I made a lil' bow on top and was done! I hope you all enjoyed seeing what I made!
As always I hope you all were inspired! I hope St. Patricks day is amazing for you and that this month is full of blessings!
As always! Much crafty love!!!

Make Your Own Luck

Hi Everyone!!

Katie here and it's been a while since my last post.
For St. Patrick's Day slowly approaching, I wanted to try something
different and I hope you all like it :)

So who doesn't want a bit of luck or look like you're having some?
Well I've made my own four leaf clove and you can too with the materials I used. ☘

Below is the items I used and some of it are some leftovers from other projects.

Left to right: Ashland clay pot 4",  Flora Craft's foam half ball, floral tape, green wire, two green shades of Sharpie markers, light green crepe paper from Lia Griffith, Ashland moss variety and Craftwell's eBrush airbrush system

1. I started off by cutting out 4 pieces of 1.75" x 0.75" from the crepe paper and 
shape them as hearts.  With the cut-outs, gently stretch the crepe paper and should look like a full shape heart. Then airbrush them a little with the light green shade.


2. The fun part is attaching the leaf together, but it can get a bit difficult if you have 
never made paper flowers. You want to do is it take the ends of the leaves and twist them together. 

3. Then fold the wire on the end where you made the twist, continue twisting and trim as desired. Wrap floral tape around exposed wire.

4. I noticed the half foam ball kind of stuck out a little, so I shaved off some of it at the flat side then placed it into the clay pot. Now you can place your finished four leaf cover into the foam ball.

5. So I didn't use all the different moss the bag came with, but just used some of it and I think it looked pretty good for someone who has never used it haha.

6. I decided to airbrush my four leaf clover one more time with a dark shade of green in the center and a little on the edges.

Here's I have my very own four leaf clover and placed it by my window.  
The best part about this project is you can make adjustments, add extras or even little flowers.

Hope you all enjoyed my post and got inspired 😀

DT: Dad Wall hanging

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to make little wall hanging for my dad’s birthday.

I wanted to use some of the Tim Holtz techniques, but couldn’t find my stash of stencils. However, I was still able to use my eBrush to apply some airbrushing.

I added some Tim Holtz Ide-Ology metal corners as foto frame. I liked this idea to be able to change the picture in the wall hanging:

These are the material that used:

And step by step instructions:

And some close-ups:

Valentine’s Day Cookie Cake

Hello peeps,
Swathi here from cookiescakeandlove and I am here on the Craftwell blog with another wonderful creation from my kitchen - a Valentine's day inspired cookie cake. My son loves cookies and when we went to the mall last month, he saw a giant cookie cake from Nestle toll house. He insisted on buying it but when i checked the price it was way too expensive.

I decided to bake it for him at home and surprise him for Valentine's day. I followed my usual cookie recipe but baked it in a 9" spring form pan. I baked a chocolate chip cookie cake which was a house favorite.

I decided to make it fancy by adding some buttercream and decorate the cake. I made my trusted vanilla buttercream recipe and iced the cookie cake. To make it more colorful, I used my Craftwell eBrush with the siphon kit and used a heart stencil borrowed from my friend and airbrushed the top with the US Cake supply airbrush color super red.

I also added a couple of sprinkles and red beads and piped rosettes at the border with the buttercream and finished decorating the cookie cake.

My son was excited to see the cake and we had a great valentines day at home. The cake was devoured by all and everyone loved the taste of cookie with buttercream.

Hope this post inspires you to bake some cookie cake for your loved one. I will be back with another baked goodie soon. Cheers!

Heart cake - Valentine's day special

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! This is Lavanya today with a Valentine cake using Craftwell eBrush.

The design for this Valentine cake adopted a technique of gravity defying. Started with baking a red velvet cake to keep everything red. It's a heart shaped cake with cream cheese frosting.
And the design is of bouquet pouring rose petals over heart❤️.

I started making rose petals🌹 and little hearts💕 using fondant as shown in picture.

Handmade fondant rose petals

Using Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit, airbrushed those petals and heart with red and pink.💗

Airbrushed rose petals and mini hearts

Finally made a bouquet💐 and added those petals using gravity defying method and spread those airbrushed petals on top of the cake.

The above picture shows the final design of Valentine cake. It was fun and challenging to play with eBrush and creating different designs.
