Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a Christmas card idea that you could easily make multiples of - just in time for sending Christmas cards. 

If you are like me, you are frantically looking for Christmas card designs that you make and send out 20's or more in a week or 2 at the max - that includes addressing and sealing the envelope as well. You are in the right place! This is 1 such design that I was able to make 20's in 3 - 4 days, working only a few hours every night, since I work during the day and have small kids. I first die cut all the greenery pieces I needed for this card - I used the Tim Holtz Mini Holiday Greens die set. These were perfect size for my A2 card. This set has a variety of greens, so I a bunch of different ones and cut them all in 1 pass on my SNAP. Next on to the poinsettia - this is a multi-step process. I stamped the poinsettia outline stamps from the Poinsettia & Holly Clusters - these stamps stamp out a few at a time, so it saves time (same with the dies as well). I stamped them with dark red ink on red cardstock to save time on coloring. Using a stamping platform helped speed up the process. I die cut all the poinsettia layers then and shaped them all with my embossing tool and foam mat. Then I adhered the layers to make the individual poinsettias and added prills for the center. Now comes the sentiment. I die cut the layers I used for the sentiment panel. All the layers are from Heartfelt Creations - Royal Elegance die set. The touch of gold adds just the right amount of elegance needed for this otherwise simple and almost flat card. I heat embossed the sentiment from Sunny Studios with gold embossing powder. I used a stamping platform for this step too. I stamp the sentiment on a panel and sprinkle embossing powder - I do this until I have a bunch ready to be heated and then I heat them all at once. This saves some time too. Now, all that's left is assembling them. I used foam tape for the sentiment panel and for the other pieces, I used liquid glue in a fine tip bottle. That's it! This card required the extra stamp for postage, but it's worth it, don't you think?

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!

DT: Paper Pinwheels

  





Hi,

This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell
For this post, I played with the pinwheels die from CTMH and made a "Merry Christmas" banner and several other projects for our Festival at the (Pumpkin) Patch for the AHG troop:

To some pinwheels, I attached mini wooden clothpins to the back, so they can be put on Christmas trees or on big paperclips to make bookmarks: 



To some, I punched a whole to add some twine and a little light bulb bead:


To some of them, I added push pins to attach to pencils:


I made many die cuts and gave them to the girls at the troop to decorate them and we sold them at the festival:

Grateful

 Hi Everyone!

Katie here with a Thanksgiving inspiring card. 

I haven't found an opportunity to use my Spellbinder Wreath die set and since Thanksgiving to closing in soon, Thanksgiving card it is!



MATERIALS:

Craftwell Cut'n'Boss

Craftwell Woodgrain Cottage Embossing Folder

Craftwell's Pocket Dies Thankful Holiday set (used the stem with leaves die)

Spellbinders Shapeabilities Wreath Die Set of 5 (used the large wreath & stem with leaves dies)

Thanks stamp set from Amazon (used the Grateful stamp)

We R Precision Press Advanced

Variety of cardstock

ColorBox - Wicked Black

Aleene's Clear Gel - Tacky Glue

X-Acto knife

Adhesive foam squares

Twine


For the base card, I embossed white cardstock with Craftwell's Woodgrain Cottage folder and took it farther with a brown color pencil to somewhat have that woodgrain look.

Next, I die cut 3 colors for the large wreath and arranged them in different position on the card. Did the same for the stem with leaves dies and arrange as desired. So I didn't have a pumpkin die and ended up cutting one out with a pair of scissors and X-Acto knife. If you decide to do this, please be careful and watch your fingers! Once all pieces are glued on, tie a bow with the twine and glue on as well. As for the sentiment on the front, I chose to use Grateful stamp with black ink on white cardstock and cut-out an outline of the word. Place the adhesive foam square behind the word and placed it as shown.

The finished card is shown below. 


I hope you all enjoyed my project and got inspired. Until next time!

Airbrushed Bitcoin

Hello everyone! Happy late Halloween. This week, I'm working on something new which uses both Craftwell's eBrush and siphon kit. 

The idea was to bring a digital item to the physical world. Yes, it was to make a fondant bitcoin as a topper.

I made a bitcoin with white fondant and airbrushed the coin in gold airbrush color and let it dry. 

Then baked a vanilla cake frosted with white buttercream and used the dried bitcoin as a topper.

Below I've attaching pictures of the bitcoin and finished cake:



I hope everyone enjoyed my creative bitcoin topper and gets inspired!


Thank you,

Bookmarks For Kids

 Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a beautiful bookmark for kids.

I wanted to make something special for my daughter's class when they were doing virtual classes last year. We decided to make bookmarks for each one of them. I used this die set from Spellbinders, which had the clipboard, paper clips and pencil dies. I made a slim clipboard with the die and added a ruled paper on top of it. I then die cut the paper clips in a few different colors and adhered them on top. The pencil had a few different parts, most of which I die cut in white card stock and my daughter colored them with markers. After adhering all the pieces and stamping some quotes, I put it in laminating sheets and passed it through my laminator. Then I cut out the laminated bookmark, punched out a hole on top and added a yellow ribbon. That's it. We made around 25 bookmarks. It was so easy to make once we got the process down.

What's your favorite thing to mass produce? Do let me know in the comments. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great day.

Birthday Shaker Card

 Hi everyone! 👋

Katie here! It's been a while since my last post so I bring you my first try at making a shaker card and it was for my goddaughter's 1st birthday.




Materials

Craftwell eBosser

Craftwell Embossing Folders: Love Triangles and Cabbage Rose

Cupcake Shaker Kit from Amazon

Hygloss' Acetate Sheets from Amazon

Spellbinders Shapeabilities Words Cutting Dies: Happy Birthday Die

Assorted Colors of Sequins from Amazon

Variety of cardstock

Recollections Foam Adhesive Squares from Michaels


I honestly had no idea how to make one so I went on YouTube for guidance. 

For the cupcake shaker, there's different ways you can achieve this part and I chose to make multiple layers from cardstock for the top of the cupcake. I think it took about 6 or 7 layers. Glued all the layers together except for one, poured in 3 different colors of the sequin then glued a cut piece of the acetate sheet and the last layer. Once the top was assembled and dried, I glued the rest of the pieces for the cupcake. 

The card, I kept it simple with 3 different colors and embossed one with Craftwell's Love Triangles folder. Die cut the word Happy Birthday from Spellbinders die set. 

There you have it! The end result shown in the photo above. 

I added another surprise by embossing tissue paper with Craftwell's Cabbage Rose folder and wrapped the gift in it.


I hope everyone enjoyed my post and will give it a try if you've never made one!

Until next time! From Katie 😉😄

DT: Poster Board- Whoooo Is Doing The Right Choice?

 




Hi,

This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell
For this post, I played with more of Get Well Kit from Queen and Co. and created a shaker mask for my Poster Board:



I really like these shaker kits. This one is the mask shaker kit. I love that it comes with everything needed to create a shaker.

For the Poster Board, I created the cutting files using the Cricut Design Space Software and cut them using my Cricut Explorer. I was ok with the whole design, but I felt that it needed more. Thus, when I saw this new Mask Shaker kit, I knew that it was just what I needed to give this board more texture.


My daughter had fun using gel pens and metallic markers to decorate the owl and the sign. My students are very pleased with the end result.

Special Day Lace

 Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today with this beautiful and elegant wedding card.

If you've followed me for some time now, you'd probably know that I'm a big fan of Amazing Paper Grace dies. I bought this die a while back and never got to use it. I die cut it on Navy card stock and put it on top of white card stock. I tied a bow with silver glitter tulle for some elegance. I stamped the sentiment - it's from an old Just Rite stamp set, with navy ink on white card stock, cut it out and matted with navy card stock. 

How do you like this quick and simple card? Do let me know in the comments. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!!

Airbrushed Heart Cake

 Hello everyone,

This time I'm with a heart cake project designed using Craftwell eBrush kit.

I baked a red velvet cake in round pan and frosted with cream cheese frosting. Then I carved the cake to heart shape and frosted again with cream cheese. Beauty of red velvet cake lies in the drizzle of red crumbs on top of the cake. Hence I dried few cake scraps in microwave and pulsed it in the mixer to get fine crumbs.

I gently added the fine crumbs on top and sides of cake. But I felt the red color was not bright enough. Here the magic comes. Quickly grabbed the Craftwell eBrush and Siphon kit and added red airbrush color into it. I carefully airbrushed on the crumbs managing the crumbs not to fly due to pressure from airbrush. Here I got the bright red color heart ❤️ finally.

Then used some gold colored fondant to make a chain and lock🔒. Attaching the picture for reference.



Thank you!

With love,

Lavanya Ravindran
