3D Flower Birthday Card

eBrush Design Team: Mitsyana Wright Week 2 Cycle 1

Oh what a beautiful card, as a mother I would love to receive one of these! Mitsyana is such a talented lady. Her ebrush sings along all day with many a creative project! 

Hello Again Crafty Friends... Today I wanted to share with you all a card I made for one of the most important women in my life. My mom. For me a store bought card just won't do. 

For someone as special as she is, I needed to pour lots of love into it... it needed to come straight from my heart.

Supplies Needed
eBrush and Copic(CP) adapter
Teresa Collins Cut'n'Boss
Teresa Collins Pocket Dies 
Thankful Holidays set- Lg & Sm flower,leaf, berry twig, & scalloped oval label)
Happy stamp set
Stitched Greetings Stamped set
Sketch Markers (RV11, RV19, RV25, YR16, YG17)
Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts
Versa Magic (Hint of Pesto)
Versafine (Onyx Black)
EK Success border punch (
Additional Supplies
Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Foam Adhesive
Double-sided Adhesive
Patterned Paper 
Various Cardstock

With my cut'n'boss. and my Teresa Collins pocket dies I cut  out my shapes in red, green, light pink, and white card stock. A great thing about using this machine is the huge platform. I can cut a lot of dies all at once. And, with the cut'n'boss' strong motor and gears cutting through several layers at once is a breeze.

For my flower I cut 4 red flowers, 2 green leaves, 1 small light pink flower, and 3 twig & berries ( I used them for stamens). I also cut the scalloped oval out 2 times (1 copper for the frame and i white for the center label). Then I adhered them onto a separate piece of cardstock to make one solid piece. 

I stamped my Happy Birthday phrase using two stamp sets from Pink and Main called "Stitched Greetings"( for the word happy, in Versa Magic - Hint of Pesto) and"Happy"( for the word Birthday, in Versafne - Onyx Black) .

For my flower, first, I ebrushed all my red flowers with a star pattern with Copic markers RV19 and YG17. 

I curled the end of my petals up, hot glued all flowers together alternating the pedals.

For the center of the flower I ebrushed the smaller flower in Copic Markers RV25, YR16, and YG17. I then I punched a hole in the center of the flower and set aside.The stamens I ebrushed in RV11, RV25, RV19 andYG17. 


I inserted my stamens into the center hole and secured them in place by hot gluing the stem from the bottom the flower.

I then hot glued this piece to the stack of red flowers.

For the leaves I ebrushed them with Copic Markers YG17 & YR16. Backed it by gluing to a piece of dark green cardstock and cut out by hand with my scissors.

I hot glued the leave to the under part of the flower. 

The  card front was made with a 6"x6" piece of foiled cardstock and a 1 1/4" strip of patterned  cardstock that I punched with my EK success border punch and ebrushed with Copic YG17. I then wrapped with a piece of 7/8" olive green satin ribbon and attached my scalloped label with foam adhesive for dimension. Then, I adhere this card front to a 6"x6"plain white card base I made by folding a 12"x6" piece in half.

This took a little bit of time to put together but was quite easy to do. Ebrushing all my pieces instead of shading them cut my work time down by more than half. I love this machine!

I hope this project has inspired you and thanks for stopping by!
Happy eBrushing!!

Halloween Candy Wreath!

Ebrush Design Team: Jan Hunter Week 2 Cycle 1

Jan is back with another beautiful project! I am loving Wednesdays! Heck I am loving every day of the week! Please leave Jan some love!

Hi all.  This is Jan and I'm back this week with one more idea for Halloween.

This is a relatively easy project with just a few basic items a lot of crafters will likely have on hand.
You'll need:
Sharpie Markers
6 or 8" wooden embroidery hoop
Paper Twist
Halloween Peppermints SVG File (from
Electronic die-cutting machine and associated software
Hot Glue gun and glue sticks
Cut a piece of Paper twist about 2 inches longer than the circumference of your hoop.  Untwist the paper twist and smooth out a bit.

Wrap the twist around the hoop -- securing to the hoop with glue gun. You want to be able to scrunch and do a little shaping for dimension.  

Now, set that aside while you cut all the embellishments for your wreath.  For a 6 in wreath 48 candy cut outs will work perfectly.

Once everything is cut, choose your colors and start spraying each of the elements as desired.  (HINT:  run pieces through a sticker maker - and you'll have more control over the pieces and less likely to have really inky fingers at the end of your spraying time.)  Once all the pieces are sprayed, you can layer them and they'll be ready for applying to the wreath.

While you have your eBrush out, grab a marker of your choice (mine was purple) and spray the wreath.  Don't forget to spray the back too.

Now put all your embellishments on your wreath (the adhesive on the back of the candy elements will hold temporarily while you get everything where you want -- use a glue gun to secure. You can add a little bling with some shimmer mist or glitter if you like.   

Add some string or ribbon to hang or just lean it up against a wall or in the bookcase for a nice touch.

With the rest of the winter Holidays fast approaching, I'm betting your heads are swirling with ideas on how you could make a holiday wreath for you home or as a gift!

Happy Crafting!  Drop by my blog for more details and  other ideas on using Craftwell's eBrush on your creative projects! 
Jan you have wonderful ideas and your execution is flawless!

Hauntingly Fun Halloween Home Décor

eBrush Design Team: Lisa Somerville Week 2 Cycle 1

Lisa has done it again! She has brought us another beautifully created grouping! 

Hi, and welcome to the Craftwell Blog!  Lisa here today, with some hauntingly fun Halloween projects to share with you!  If you love Halloween and are looking for a few frightful ideas for your home décor, I've created some easy to make projects using the eBrush!

I had a blast creating these Halloween Home decor projects with the eBrush, a few items from my craft stash that were waiting to be recycled, White Vinyl and Sharpie Markers.

My post is rather heavy with photos to show step outs, so grab your favorite cuppa and join me, as I show you how I transformed my pieces using the eBrush

Using your electronic die cutting machine and die cut the SVG files you would like to use from White Vinyl or card stock.  I prefer the vinyl as it will easily attach to my projects.

Apply the Witches shoes cut from Vinyl to your bottle

Working on a Non Stick Craft mat, use a Silver Sharpie and the eBrush to spray your bottle

Completely cover the bottle, let dry

Remove Vinyl and embellish as desired.  Be sure to seal your bottle, bottle should be hand washed only.

Apply Vinyl die cut to Mason Jar as shown, use the eBrush and a Black Sharpie to add color to the jar

Completely cover the die cut vinyl

Dry completely and remove vinyl.  Seal jar with sealer, jar should be hand washed.

Place vinyl die cut over coaster as shown, use eBrush and Silver Sharpie Marker to add color

Cover entire area

Let dry, and remove vinyl.  Seal before using

On this second coaster, I had die cut the words from vinyl, and used a Silver Sharpie Marker and the eBrush to add color. Once the Silver was dry to the touch, I used the eBrush and a Black Sharpie Marker to apply color over the Shattered Glass Stencil

The frame had previously been covered with old booknote papers and I thought it would be perfect for this project.  Using the eBrush and Black Sharpie Marker, apply color over the Shattered Glass Stencil

Move the stencil and repeat until the frame is covered

For the inside of the frame, I die cut some text from vinyl as shown

Using the eBrush, and Copic Markers, apply color to the vinyl die cuts as shown.  To protect the other areas from color, I covered them with scrap paper

 Continue adding color as desired, allow vinyl to dry

Apply Transfer tape over color vinyl and adhere to scrapbook paper

 Finished Frame

Using stencils, add color to the paper mache pumpkin using the eBrush and Sharpie Markers.  I used Neon Orange and Orange.  Allow to dry, seal the pumpkin so it's easy to keep clean.  Embellish as desired.

After using the eBrush to add color to the pumpkin, I added color to the vinyl die cut words using the same method as I did on the frame and adhered it to the pumpkin.

  • eBrush - Sharpie Adapter
  • White Vinyl, Transfer Tape
  • Sharpie Markers - Silver, Black, Neon Orange, Orange
  • Copic Markers

Halloween Box Card!

Ebrush Design Team: Peggy Oliver Week 2 Cycle 1

Peggy Gives us another wonderful creation! I would love to be the receiving line for this cute card! Please leave some love for Peggy! 

Boo! Happy Halloween to you all!
Peggy here to show you my Box Card! I absolutely  love how the parts jiggle.
Supplies used today:

Black cardstock
Wooden Letters
Patterned Paper
Acetate Packaging
Sharpie Markers black ,gold metalic and red
Medical gauze 

I chose a card style to pop! I searched youtube and found plenty of videos on how to make this card! I started with an 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock I followed the directions to achieve a box with no bottom so it can be folded. Inside are hinges or tabs to suspend everything in the middle. This style of fancy folding card is called a box card.
I used G45 papers and DCWV to embellish the box.
I used my fabulous new Ebrush system to create this bat below using a hand cut stencil from plastic. Next I sprayed red on the gauze to simulate blood.

Here is my box folded below

Each element is suspended on acetate strips glued to the inside tabs. I used the Letters BOO Ebrushed in black sharpies and edged in gold sharpie. My new must have tool has proven to be a goto item!

Another hand cut element the second bat sitting on the Boo! I cut this from packaging and sprayed it guessed it..My Ebrush.

So easy and versatile. 
Thank  you for joining me today, I hope I have inspired you to try it out for yourself! The New Ebrush from Craftwell.
