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.    
Thanks for stopping by!! Do share your valuable comments and feedbacks.

With love,

Valentine Box

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a Valentine's box that I made for my daughter. I do have some pictures I took along the way as well. My daughter loved how it turned out - she loves butterflies :)

I started with an empty cereal box. I cut out 3 of the flaps at the top (2 tiny ones and 1 large one).

I measured the width of the box and cut that from one of the sides. My goal was to make a box with a close-able flap, which I planned to use velcro for.

I covered the entire box with a red foil gift wrap, which I got from Dollar Tree.

I die cut some butterflies on gold mirror card stock using the Crafter's Companion - Chic Butterflies set. I die cut my daughter's name - Amelia - on the same gold mirror cardstock, but this time I lined it with double sided tape on the back, to make it easier for adhering. I couldn't find my double sided sheet, so used 3 lines of double sided tape ;) The alphabet dies are from Whimsy Stamps. I adhered some velcro fasteners on the flaps. I loved how it turned out. My daughter loved it - she loved all the sparkle and glimmer and she adores butterflies! I love my Cut N Boss - it has really made me fall in love with die cutting.

Please do let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

LOVE Banner

Greetings Craftwell lovers! It's Desiree' of Her OwnFairytale, here to share my make with
you today! The day of love is fast aproaching and I ADORE that day!
February 14th is one of my fave holidays! Oh yeah, and it IS my oldest son's b-day too!
So maybe I am a bit partial?! 💘 Today I am sharing the LOVE banner I made.
Keep reading for details and pics!

I began this project by going to my stash of awesomeness! I chose some dies and some pretty
papers, the papers are from a discontinued paper kit by The Paper Studio named Cosmopolitan.
I LOVE the colors of this kit! I also used some 110 white card stock by Recollections, and a piece of
Rose-Gold foil paper by them too. Once the papers were chosen the brainstorming really began!
I decided since I was making a banner I would use my We R Memory Keepers banner punch board!
It was so easy to make banners with this tool!

Once my banner panels were all punched out, next came die cutting! I cut out three really pretty 3D  bow die cuts, and three cute stitch hearts using my SNAP machine of course! This is my baby!!
Here are some pics of the cutest little die cut turned faux cotton candy hearts!

I know what you are thinking! Cotton Candy us NOT white!! I know!
So next I knew I had to use my darling eBrush!! Oh yeah. AND a PINK Sharpie too!
I made these adorable cotton candy embellishes by covering my hearts in some cotton balls I
fluffed out and shaped over my die cut hearts! Next is a pic of what the eBrush did to these
little darlings. Well one of them anyways! Heheh

Too cute!! Right?!! I think so! Since this is going to be a "LOVE" banner I needed some letters!
I do not own ANY letter dies! To my electronic cutting machine I went!!
I cut out my letters and shadow layer from the white cardstock and my rose gold paper.
Once that was done I wanted something extra! Texture maybe? YES!! I used one of my faves
from WRMK, it's the "Quilted" 3D embossing folder. I love the results!! Look at that E!

I also used my electronic cutter to cut out a heart border for the top of my banner.
I embellish my 3D bows with some flat back pearls and cut some stringed faux pearls for some
extra, extra on my banner! I adhered my textured and stacked alphas, to my banner panels.
Strung my banner panels with some white seam binding. Then between my alphas I alternated 
my bows and cotton candy hearts. This was the end results!

I seriously LOVE making banners and this one might have been time consuming but was WAY fun
to make!! I hope you like what I made and I really hope you were inspired! 
I hope you Valentines Day is filled with love!! 
Please come back often and be inspired by the rest of the Craftwell Design Team! 
I always am inspired by what they come up with!
                                     Sincerely - Desiree;

DT: Angel Tags

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, i wanted to share the angel tags I made for my friend for the Epiphany: 

I used the Angel spellbinder dies to make this simple but cute tags. I stamped a German sentiment with olive StanzOn ink and used DCWV solid gold foiled double sided paper:

I attached some CTMH twine and tied around the goodie bags I made for my friends.

I love how they could use these tags as ornaments too.

Wedding Congratulations

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a Congratulations card I made for a friend's wedding this weekend.

I started with a 5" x 7" ivory card base. I die cut the Double Heart Gatefold die on brown card stock twice. I then die cut a heart out of the same brown card stock and used it as a base for the wreath. I die cut the leaves using the dies from the Karen Burniston - Pop-up Flower pot die and the flowers from the Sizzix Small Tattered Florals die. I adhered the leaves and flowers and a few pearls along the edge of the heart die cut. I arranged everything on the ivory card base and adhered them. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Brutus Monroe - Sharon's Script stamp set with Gilded Embossing powder on ivory card stock and adhered it down after curving it a little. 

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!!

Airbrushed Floral Cake

Hi everyone! New year greetings! This is Lavanya with a simple cake design today.

The cake I made for my beloved friend's birthday celebration is a simple tiny cake with airbrushed flowers on top and side of the cake.

I baked a butterscotch cake with homemade butterscotch syrup and frosted with whipped cream. Frosted tiny flowers and helped those flowers to come alive by airbrushing using Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit. It just took less than a minute for decorating the cake with eBrush.

Then hand painted image of my friend in the edible fondant sheet and placed over top of the cake. Here is the final outcome of cake. It looked great with airbrush effect on flowers.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and hope you get inspired. Have a great day ahead.

Happy Birthday Shaker Card

Hello all you makers! Desiree' with you again! Feeling blessed to be here!
Hope 2020 has been AMAZING so far, and will only keep getting better!
I have a few pics to share of my latest b-day card!
I used my SNAP machine by Craftwell to cut my dies out. Love that machine!
To start with, as always I chose some cute papers from my stash, and a stamp or
two, and of course dies!
I made a teddy bear head shaped shaker. For the sentiment I used confetti that says
"Happy Birthday", once that was done I assembled my card.
Here's a pic or three!

The final product, I love these papers!

 Inside of the card

And here is what the card looks like from above. I am okay with the finished card.
Hope you all will be too! Hope are inspired some how! Thank you for stopping by!!
Wishing everyone a super blessed 2020!!!

DT: Christmas Tags

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, i wanted to share the Christmas tags, I made for my children teachers:

I used some tags from a tag kit from CTMH. This is the original front of the tag:

I stamped the back with the CTMH Virgin Mary and Jesus images, using squid gold ink:

I used my SNAP to die cut the snow globe shapes (die, freebie from Card making Magazine) using foil paper to match the tag kit from CTMH. I used the banners from the kit and stamped the German sentiment for Merry Christmas.

Please make sure to visit my post for further tags ideas, follow me, and browse my blog for more inspiration.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Baby Shower Cake and Cupcakes

Hello everyone,

Swathi here from cookies cake and love and I am here again with a new post to end this eventful year of 2019. I was asked by my friend to make a baby shower cake and cupcakes for another common friend of ours. She was expecting a boy and my friend wanted me to make a cake featuring elephant figurines and also make a dozen cupcakes for the kids who attend the baby shower.

I made some tiny boots for the cupcakes with white fondant and airbrushed it with my reliable Craftwell eBrush siphon kit. I also made an elephant with balloon topper to keep on top of the cake.

I cut a zigzag stencil from a piece of parchment paper and airbrushed the color blue on the bottom part of the top tier with my Craftwell eBrush siphon kit. It made the cake look more elegant and beautiful. The cake deets are it is a vanilla cake with vanilla cream cheese buttercream and cupcakes were chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting and fondant toppers.
I hope you all liked my creation. See you soon again with another new project until then it’s bye from Swathi. Wish you all a Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year 🎈
