Just For You

Hello everyone! This is Berina here today, with a CAS card.

I embossed a piece of white card stock with the Bella Rose embossing folder on my Cut N Boss. Then I inked it with Brutus Monroe Stargazer ink. I love coral color and I see that I'm using it often now. I then die cut the sentiment label using a die from Spellbinders and stamped the sentiment, that coordinates with the die. 

This is a simple card, that is easier for making in sets. Please do let me know your thoughts. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

Only A Mother, (altered canvas)

Hello! Welcome to the Craftwell blog. Desiree', with you again!
Today, I'm sharing with you an altered canvas that I created.
Of course I started out doing what everyone does, choosing
what ingredients to use.
Here's a snapshot of what I decided to use.

So after that was decided, I knew I wanted to emboss!
I knew the embossing folder I wanted to use too, the Bella Rose
Before I embossed I cut my paper to 5x7 and sprayed it with 
some Pearl Glimmer Mist.
Then I fired up my Cut 'N' Boss, stacked up my embossing "sandwich", and placed it all in my Cut 'N' Boss. 
Once the machine was done, my paper was beautifully embossed!

I painted my canvas and did a little bit of sanding to bring out the Bella Rose texture even more!
Next step was to do a little decoupage and adhere my paper to the canvas.

After that dried, I was ready for stacking and placing the embellishments! Yay!
I took some pretty heart dies from my stash and cut them out with my Cut 'N' Boss machine. This machine is epic!
Not only is it not manual, it also has a 8.5 x 12 cutting/embossing abilities! 
I love it. JS!
I placed my sticker with the Mother quote on it onto a piece of my shimmer paper, and then fussy cut around the sticker.
I adhered my little heart to the canvas, popped the bigger heart on some pop dots, and did the same for my fussy cut sticker for dimension.
I placed them on the canvas with some hot glue and added my gold bow.

Next, I clustered my flowers, a couple of leaves together, and then hot glued them to the canvas.
After that I took a crown die cut from my stash, I have had forever and added some bling and flat back pearls to it, then glued it to my canvas.
At this point, I was happy with where this project was and she was complete! A 3.5 x 3.5 photo can be ttucked behind / beside the hearts. 
At the time of the post I just didn't have the pic with me.

As always I hope you were inspired! I hope you liked
 what you saw here today!
Thank you for visiting the Craftwell blog, please don't be a stranger.
I also want to wish every mom past, present, and future a super blessed Mother's Day!

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:
