DT: May You Weather This Storm - Wall Hanging

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
 I got inspired by some Hero Stamps I had from last year:

I was feeling anxious and under the weather, so this is my uplifting creation:

Some closeups:

Also how I made it:

I used my last kit from Clear Scraps, which contained a cute mini wooden palette and this stencil raining hearts stencil:

It also included this pearl modellier creme, so I decided to do some resisting inking:

While the paste was drying, I did inked some leftover pieces from a Swirlydoos kits from long time ago: 

I used my SNAP machine from Craftwell to cut some stamped images:

And used some Dylusions inks and Tattered Angels spray and "lifted" the resisted ink with a paper towel from the stenciled shapes: 

Finally, I stamped randomly some "rain" with silver colorbox ink and used 3D dots to add all pieces and voila I got my mood lifted...
I  hope you enjoyed this very simple and super easy to make layout and visit my blog for further ideas:

Happy Easter Banner

Hello there! Welcome to the Craftwell blog! Desiree', here to share a banner I made to celebrate Easter! For me Easter is full blessings! So being a little extra is a must!
And this banner is just that, extra! Heheh!

So if you have came across any of my posts on this blog (and I hope you have) you will know all my projects start with choosing the papers! 💖 This task was made super easy by using the Paper Studio, Terrace Blooms, 4.5x6.5 stack. I also used a couple of 12x12 pieces of paper from an older stack in my stash by DCWV, called Water Color Ombre. I used some 65 lb. metallic paper too. I love the papers I chose!

More and more I am obsessed with die cutting! I love the ease of it and the way the finish of the edges on a die cut!
I unfortunately did not have a die to cut the kind of banner shape I had in mind, SO I busted out my WRMK, banner punch board. Then cut my banner pieces out.

Next I did some stamping! Using the epic Tim Holtz stamping platform, of course. So I stamped H-A-P-P-Y out on some of my paper. Oh! Forgot to mention the bunnies!
I had bought some napkin rings from the Spot area, and knew I would utilize them in crafting! Muhahah!
FINALLY it was time to use my Snap machine and die cut out each letter with a circle die to fit my bunny napkin holders! Which are now part of my banner set up.

I had NO alpha dies! So I had to cut some out using my electric cutting machine. So I did just that! I also punched a couple of holes on each circle for stringing the trims and to be able to hang this part of the banner.
I used the blue paper from the water color stack, and cut out a shadow in that metallic silver.

I die cut some of my banner scraps and made some scalloped hanging tabs for my banner pieces. 
This part was repetitive BUT worthwhile. 
I decided to add a little metallic trim too! 
Once it was all pieced together I loved the end results.

And after each banner piece was together, attacked and trimmed up, it was time to string it all together, and so I did. Thing is, last minute I decided to not only use that pretty pink leaf trim pictured somewhere above BUT I decided to for the first time utilize this pretty blue glitter tulle! OMG! The mess was pretty and massive! LOL

It was like fallout from a nuke missile BUT in the form of glitter! LOL It all ended happy though, because I loved the qY it all came together! Hope you do too!

So there she is in all her spring flavored cuteness! As always, I hope you came, you saw, and were inspired! Easter blessings to you all and please keep coming back! 

     💟 - Desiree'

Spring Wreath

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a beautiful card with a Spring Wreath, with lots of die cuts, cut on my Cut'n'Boss. 

I die cut 2 pieces of Spellbinders Mistletoe Gatefold die on Brutus Monroe Cabbage card stock. The I die cut the Woodland Wreath on BM Brown Butter card stock. I die cut a few flowers with the Small Tattered Florals die on 2 shades of pink card stock. I shaped them into flowers and buds. I die cut the sentiment 'Thank You' from pink card stock using a die from Creative Expressions.

I die cut a circle out of the front of a top folding A2 card base. I adhered the sentiment on the inside of the card base, so that it's visible through the window. I scored the gatefold die cuts and adhered the flap on to the inside of the card base. I adhered the wreath on to one of the mistletoe die cuts and adhered the flowers to it. Here's a view with the mistletoe gatefolds open:

Here's another picture with the gatefolds and the card open:

How do you like this card today? Please do let me know!! Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day!

DT: The Atonement Gala- Scrapbooking Layout

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this month's post, I made an scrapbooking layout to feature my children's school Gala:

The theme for the Gala was the Great Gatsby and predominant colors were black and gold. Thus, I decided to use this DCWVStardust Stack Paper with tons of black and gold foil, and some CTMH vellum with feathers and gold polka dots. I couldn't find my gold alpha stickers, thus I just spelled the title using the negative cuts from the sentiment die cuts. I'm still missing the word Gala, which I will add later with the stickers... ;-)

Right side:

Left Side:

Some close ups to highlight the die cuts I made using my SNAP:

In short:

1- I used my SNAP to cut some die cuts from some Teresa Collins dies for sentiments, tags, and picture frame, CraftWell, and HeroArts, for the retro frame, which I cut in pieces:

2- I used an Sketch from "Let's scrap sketches: sketch-3-15-19":

3- I assembled the pictures and die cuts following the sketch. The swirls and stars die cuts, help finishing the look of the sketch:

4- I still miss some journaling and of course to finish my title.

I  hope you enjoyed this very simple and super easy to make layout and visit my blog for further ideas:

Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a beautiful Birthday card with a lot of die cutting on my Craftwell Cut N Boss :)

For the card front, I blended the Brutus Monroe Auburgine ink over the Brutus Monroe Elegant Egg stencil. I then added a strip of purple card stock and Brutus Monroe - Sterling Glitter Stock to the left edge of the card base. Then I die cut some flowers from 2 shades of purple card stock using the flowers from Karen Burniston Flower - Pot Pop-up die set. I also die cut some leaves from Brutus Monroe Cabbage card stock using the die set. For the sentiment, I die cut the "Happy Birthday" from the dark purple card stock with the Brutus Monroe - Happy Birthday die and adhered it with glue. For the final touch, I added a butterfly which I die cut using the Crafter's Companion - Chic Butterfy die set on a purple card stock. 

Here's one more look at the card front before we look at the inside of the card.

I used the Karen Burniston - Flower Pot Pop-up die to make the inside of the card. I assembled them according to the instructions on the package. For the flower pot, I stenciled them with the same stencil and ink I used the card front (Brutus Monroe Elegant Egg stencil and Aubergine ink). I added some flowers and butterflies to the flower pot. To add a little more interest, I used a doily for the flower pot and added some flourishes which I die cut on purple card stock using the Karen Burniston - Charm Accordion Die set. 

Here's a closer look at the flower pot. How do you like my card today? Do let me know your thoughts and comments!! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!!

Lucky! Artist Trading Card & Greeting Card!

Hello again! It's your girl Desiree', back on the Craftwell blog, and I am sharing two projects with y'all today!
That must make this your LUCKY day! LOL Just kidding!
So on to the details...

I first picked out my papers and such, I ended up choosing to use only 2 dies, but I stretched those out to make 2 projects! I used the Craftwell Lucky tag die and a little heart one by Craftwell too!
The papers by The Paper Studio, were recently bought at Hobby Lobby and were on sale! The glitter paper was on clearance even! All the other things were in my stash.

I cut out my dies with my Snap machine of course! Keeping in mind I wanted to use the positive and negative parts of my cuts.
I then started to piece together some embellishments using the die cuts.
I cut four hearts and made a four leaf clover for the ATC from the glitter paper. I also used a tiny doily with the Lucky tag and a sticker to make a cluster embellishment for my other project. I kind of love the way they turned out. I decoupaged my patterned paper onto my ATC card BEFORE I adhered any of my other elements to it.
I also used some washi tape behind the word lucky, so it would pop a bit more.

I kept the paper strip I cut my hearts out from and used it as a border on the top of this card. Added more washi for poppage and some shamrock bling too.
As I said before I cut the shamrock paper to cover my ATC, then decoupaged it, and sanded the edges to make them nice and clean. I also cut a strip to accent my card.
Then I cut a thinner strip of that glitter paper, had to! Because GLITTER! LOL Seriously though.
After stacking things and adhering them I was almost done. Just had to add some ribbon, seam binding, and a felt bow to my tag, a little Tim Holtz, small talk too and BOOM! They were all complete! 

As always thank you for coming by, please come again!
 I hope you liked what I shared and found some inspiration! In advance let me wish you all the most blessed St. Patty's day EVER!
