Unicorn cake and Cupcakes for my daughter's first birthday!!

Hello its Swathi here from Cookies Cake n Love. Hope everyone is safe and sane during these testing Pandemic times. We have been locked at home now for a little over 3 months now. My baby girl turned 1 last week and I felt even though we were midst of a pandemic, I wanted to make her birthday memorable for us as well as for her when she looks at pictures when she is older.

So we decided to do a socially distanced birthday party with our friends who have been at home like us for the past three months. I decided on the unicorn theme hoping something magical like the unicorn will happen and save us from this pandemic.

I made a biscoff cookie cake and cupcakes with biscoff cookie butter filling and white chocolate buttercream icing. I made few fondant accents for the cake and cupcakes. I let them dry for sometime before I applied color.

I colored them gold shade of US cake supply airbrush color using my Craftwell eBrush with the siphon system. The gold was kind of tricky to apply as it clogged up the tube of the siphon kit. I later diluted the gold color with a little water as I dint have alcohol with me at home. It was a little runny and light but I let it dry for sometime and colored two more coats to get a brighter shade.

Thank goodness for my Craftwell eBrush, other wise it would have taken forever to paint these small fondant accents. Since the weather was a bit humid in Kansas, I dabbed it with a little powdered sugar to make the accents dry quicker.

Hope you liked my post and inspires you to make some goodies for your loved ones at home. Stay safe everyone.

Thank you,

Dulce Birthday Card

Greetings all you beautiful makers! Desiree here with you, sharing a birthday card I made,
It features the Dulce, paper collection by Frank Garcia, for Prima. It is beautiful!!!
The solid papers used are Recollections, by Michaels.

To begin I took the papers I chose, and used my dies to make my element shapes and card
front using my Craftwell SNAP machine.

After I finished placing my die cuts, and embellishments, I glued it all down.
I glued down my cotton candy die cuts, then it was time to stamp my sentiment on on.
I used an old Fiskars stamp set from my stash. It is an oldie but good!

And here is what the finished project looked like. I loved the tiny bows!! I am pretty pleased with it.

As always I hope you were inspired in some way, please do not be a stranger and visit again soon! Best wishes and I hope you have an amazing day!

Coral Flowers

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here on the blog today, sharing this Mother's Day card with flowers that I made for my Mom. I got to spend Mother's Day with my Mom after a few years :)

I took an A2 card base and die cut the edge with 2 dies from Spellbinders Scalloped Borders 3 die set. I used the same dies to die cut the edge on a panel of Coral cardstock and adhered it on the inside of the card. I used the Spellbinders Stained Glass die on gold mirror cardstock to cut out the center piece and adhered it on to the card base. Then I die cut some flowers and leaves using the Karen Burniston Flower Pot pop-up dies. I shaped the flowers with the tools and added a half pearl in the center. I arranged the flowers and leaves and adhered them on to the card. I die cut the swirl from the Graceful Corners die set from Amazing Paper Grace & Spellbinders on the same gold card stock, cut a tiny bit on both ends and adhered it below the flowers. For the sentiment panel, I die cut the label die from Inspired by Stamping on white card stock and while the die cut was still in the die, I inked it lightly with Brutus Monroe Stargazer ink. I stamped the sentiment from one of the Verve Stamps stamp set and added it on to the card. Here's a look at the inside of the card:

eBrush Wall Art

Hi everyone! This is Lavanya with a different work today but this time not on the cake. I thought of using Craftwell eBrush in crafts since I am in a situation to engage my little son in daily activities.

He got excited when I placed the eBrush on the counter. So we started airbrushing in a card using Play-Doh cutter of shapes butterflies and flowers. It was really fun in working with airbrush since he enjoyed spraying colors on the card.

He also sprayed three different colors on another card and touched with oil pastel silhouette trees depicting nature in evening, night and day

Though it's not perfect, but I am happy to share his work here and the way he handled eBrush with his tiny hands.

Thanks everyone!!
Stay home Stay Safe

With love and care,

DT: Fiesta Tissue Flowers

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post it might be late, but I wanted to make a wreath for Fiesta (April is Fiesta month in San Antonio, TX), but I ended up spicing up my door previous Easter decor with tissue paper flowers:

These flowers were super easy to make and are a kids friendly craft:

I used these nesting dies and my SNAP:

I might add some colorful paper rosettes to the corners of the doors, but I'm pretty happy with the result so far. Next year, I might do the wreath though.

Please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy April & May and stay safe from this pandemic.

Dinosaur doll house

Hello peeps, it’s Swathi here from Cookies Cake and Love with a fun quarantine project made to engage my son. I have come up with an art project this time and not a cake or cookie 😂. With everyone stuck at home now, the kids are getting bored too soon. To keep them engaged here is a fun doll house you can make with the things you have at home.

My son who is almost 5, who wanted a doll house for his dinosaurs and as any excited (read exhausted😅) mom I made him this doll house with a Costco grocery box and some patterned paper from Michael’s that I got from my friend years ago.

My son wanted a look alike wood floors for his house. So I used my trusted Craftwell eBrush with siphon kit and used some brown watercolor diluted with water and sprayed on some card stock paper. I then used a brown marker and drew lines to mimic the wood floor boards and drew some pattern. Looks close enough isn’t it.

I made a couple of sheets and it was also time to decorate the home. I used the patterned paper as wallpaper and stuck them on the sides. I then made a bed, sofa and kitchen counter tops with a old letter box and used some scrap fabric to give some volume to it. I hot glued all of them to the board so that it doesn’t move.

I made a center table out of air dry clay and used my Craftwell eBrush along with the marker adapter and spray painted it red. I then added a touch of gold to make it shimmer. I was able to put these all up with very few items.

Here are some more pictures of the doll house.

Hope this inspires you to make some fun doll houses with your little ones and I would love to see your creations. Thank you.

Thanks A Bunch

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here on the blog today, with this Thank You card with pastel color theme.

I die cut the balloon using the Sizzix - Favorite Things Collection - Hot Air Balloon die on the patterned paper from Brutus Monroe on my Cut'n'Boss. I took an A2 card base and used the Brutus Monroe Cloud stencil and Sidewalk ink to create a subtle cloud background. Then I assembled the die cut of the hot air balloon and adhered it down. I wanted to use the banner from the same die set for the sentiment, but didn't have any stamp that would fit in there. So I wrote the sentiment "Thanks A Bunch" on the banner. I adhered some flowers from this package.

How do you like this card? Please do let me know!! Thanks for stopping by. Hope you all are staying safe!!

Galaxy Cake

Hello folks! Hope all are safe at home. Today I'm here to share the details of my latest work using  Craftwell eBrush.

The task is to bake and decorate a galaxy cake with solar system. The splash of different shades of colors brings the galaxy effect on the cake.

I began with baking a eggless chocolate cake frosted with whipped cream. To achieve the galaxy effect, I used Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit. I airbrushed the cake with following airbrush colors one by one: light blue, navy blue, pink, purple and black.
Airbrushed cake
I made planets and astronaut figure using fondant and designed it finally. The following image shows the complete design of a cake.

Craftwell eBrush is such an amazing kit for designing and to achieve the desired effect.

Thanks everyone for having look at my work. Do share your comments. 

Stay Home Stay Safe!

With love,
