It's Karen sharing an Inspirational
Tag that I created with the Design Grids
Embossing Folder. I love the textured pattern in this embossing folder. It
lends itself to many possibilities. I began this project by inking a manila tag
with various oxide inks. After drying, I embossed the tag using the Cut N Boss machine and the Design
Grids Embossing Folder. I then applied vintage photo ink to the tag to enhance
the grid pattern. This created the perfect background for the additional
embellishments that I used. As shown, I used flowers, beaded pins, clear
pebbles and dyed ribbon. I accented and highlighted elements with some gesso. I
reinforced the tag with chipboard and it's ready to be used as art décor or
gift giving. Loved the end result!
Karen here, sharing an Altered Spool that I created with a recycled ribbon spool, the Bella Rose embossing folder and Cut N Boss machine. The roses on the Bella Rose folder are full and perfect for coloring. The roses were embossed on watercolor paper. I colored them with watercolor inks by Prima and blended them with an aqua painter. After coloring the roses, I lightly sanded the roses with a sanding bar to re-define the outline of the roses.
To add some height to the altered spool, I added some wooden fixtures. This gave the perfect opportunity to add some coordinating flowers, butterflies, leaves, beaded pins and ribbon that I dyed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (Black Cherry, Tropical Pink and Marmalade). Using a paintbrush, I tapped on some gesso and highlighted the ribbon to enhance the overall design.
This was such a fun project and great way to use the Bella Rose embossing folder and the Cut N Boss machine.
Hello there! Linsey here today sharing a quick and easy card with big wow appeal! It's a great card to have on hand for everyday, friendship, encouragement or congratulations. I enjoyed the mixed media process on this card, it was quite therapeutic and uplifting. I hope the positivity translated into the card itself. Come and see...
I was happy to have 2 reasons to use my trusty SNAP Machine, a compact version of the awesome Cut'N'Boss electric die cutter and embosser. It's perfect for smaller projects like cards takes care of my dry embossing and die cutting in one shot. LOVE. After creating an embossed base panel by running my ivory cardstock through the SNAP, it was then painted over with a layer of gesso. After drying, Gelatos were used to create the gold and pink watercolor smear, then set aside to dry completely. Next, the feathers/banner dies and cardstock were run through the SNAP and cut. Once again, gesso first on the feathers, then gelatos. A spritz of bleach was sprayed on top of the feathers for an interesting effect. Tied with a bit of gold string and placed atop the finished background, which was adhered to the card base, with the edges a little distressed as well. "You're Fabulous" was stamped in gold, then heat embossed on the die cut banner. Greeting was adhered to the top along with a few pretty sequins for sparkle.
And that's all for me! Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share my card! It's been fun! Until next time, happy Craftwell crafting! 😊
It’s Karen, sharing a Mixed Media Tag that I created with
the Cut N Boss Machine and the Design Grid Embossing Folder. I love this versatile folder.
It adds just the right amount of texture and the distressed and aged techniques I used created a great vintage effect. I added some book paper to create a fun versatile
layer and I enhanced the overall design by tapping on some gesso using a
paintbrush. Take a peek at the super
easy tutorial below.
Hi friends, Linsey here today sharing my latest Craftwell project with you! I always love the idea of making my own party favors for special events and occasions and the Cut'N'Boss electric embosser and die cutter is the perfect tool for such a project. With summer in full swing, I was feeling wedding and baby shower vibes so I decided to create some pretty party favors for either of these special occasions. These would also work great for a Sunday brunch or afternoon tea with the ladies, placing one at each table setting for an elegant extra touch.
To complete, I die cut 5 mini tags from the Teresa Collins Tabs and Tags Project Dies set and added a clear sticker sentiment to each one, then tied each tag to a floral cluster with Ivory Burlap String. Fill with candy, chocolates or a small gift of choice. These favors are sure to delight and impress your guests, making them feel super special, too. I'd love to receive one, how about you? :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you've been inspired to create with the awesome Cut'N'Boss or any of the awesome products Craftwell has to offer! Until next time, happy crafting!
