DT: Lip Balm Holders for St. Valentine's Day

 


 Dear Scrappers,


This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a lip balm holders as gifts for my children's teachers for St. Valentine's day:



I used the following materials and dies:


First, I die cut all the holders using the Sizzix dies and used another die set from Sizzix for the embellishments and bookmark.

In short: I stamped the delicate mandala shapes using the CTMH stamps. Then, I laminated the delicate mandalas after stamping a sentiment in the back using the "We are good together" stamp set (I used the "You are Loved" stamp). Later I cut them out using their thin cut dies. I did the same with the tags and "smile" sentiment (I stamped my children's name in the back of the tag) for the other end of the bookmark:



I attached both sides with a foot of ribbon and tied them with knots:


I used my SNAP and Cut'n'Boss to cut everything.

I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Enjoy the freezing days


My kiddos playing in the backyard this morning. A total "normal" February morning in Texas...

and stay safe from this pandemic.

Hello Pansies!

Hello everyone!! Hope you are staying warm and comfortable this week! This is Berina here today, with another Pansy card - can you just say that I love those Pansy dies from Altenew? 

Let's start with die cutting. I die cut all the parts of the petals - for the yellow part, I used yellow card stock and for the purple part, I die cut them in white card stock and colored them with Copics. I tried 2 different combinations of color for the pansies - I searched in Google to see different colors of Pansies and decided to go with these 2. I adhered the different petal layers together with glue and shaped certain parts of the petals to give it a dimensional look. I die cut the leaf layers in white card stock and adhered them with glue. I arranged them on an A2 card base to see how well it looks. I decided to add some soft inking along the edges with Hero Arts Orchid ink. I adhered all the flowers and leaves with glue and a few foam dots to give a bit of dimension to this flower arrangement. Finally I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Statement Flowers stamp set. 

In case you haven't seen it yet, here is my previous post using the same Pansy dies. This die set can seem a little intimidating at first, with 10 different die cut pieces for 1 flower. But trust me, with my SNAP machine, it was a breeze to die cut them all repeatedly for the 5 flowers - I did all the die cutting together at one time and then did all the coloring together. 

How do you like my card today? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day.

Beautiful Day Pansies

 Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a beautiful floral card, with lovely pansies.

I used the 3D Pansy die from Altenew to die cut the flower pieces on a piece of white card stock using my SNAP machine and colored the pieces with Copic markers. I followed the layering guide to adhere the pieces. I used tiny foam squares in certain places instead of adhering it completely flat. This gives a little bit of dimension to the flowers. You can see the dimension here.

I die cut the leaves also from white card stock and colored the pieces with Copics and adhered the layers with glue. For the background, I die cut the Moroccan Mosaic cover die on yellow cardstock. I adhered it on to an A2 card base. I adhered the flowers and leaves on top of it. For the sentiment, I wanted to do something small so that the flowers remain as the focal point. I stamped this sentiment from the Statement Flowers stamp set by Altenew and adhered it with foam squares. I added a few sequins from Doodles Paper Playground.


How do you like my card today? Do you like pansies? Do let me know in the comments. Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day!

Thanks a Bunch

  Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a simple thank you card. 

I used the Sizzix Hot Air Balloon Die on pattern papers from Brutus Monroe to make the hot air. This die has become one of my favorites - it can be used for a lot of different types of cards. I've made quite a few with it so far. The sentiment is from a stamp set by Verve stamps. I adhered a piece of grey card stock on an A2 card base and matted it with a white card stock. I adhered the hot air balloon next and stamped the sentiment. Love my Cut'n'Boss for all the die cutting!

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

DT: Medical Personal Appreciation Bookmarks


 Dear Scrappers,


This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a bunch of bookmarks to thank the nurses and medical personnel, who helped me with the health screenings at school.


Here are some closer pictures to show the different bookmarks I made:






Materials:


I used my SNAP to cut the cute little frontline heroes, I stamped before. I used leftover card stocks in white, black and blue to cutout the mats and the bookmarks bases. I stamped the sentiments on the mats, the heroes or cute designs I punched out colorful mats. Later, I added some colors with gel glitter pens. I assembled the bookmarks, fussy cutting the cute little patient bears, and added some twine at the end:


I stamped my name using Distress Oxides by TH in the back:


Here is how I displayed the bookmarks for the medical personnel:




I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Enjoy the cooler days,

Floral Bouquet

Hello everyone!! Welcome back to the Craftwell blog! This is Berina here today, with this card with a floral bouquet.


I love these Arianna Blooms from Heartfelt Creations. I used the die to cut out the flowers and stamens from card stock and shaped the layers with embossing tools. I die cut the Swirly Accent Spray die, also from Heartfelt Creations, on gold card stock. The leaves are cut using Spellbinders Fern die on green card stock. I used my Cut N Boss to die cut all of them. I adhered all these on a 5" x 7" ivory card base and adhered them down.


Here's a look at the dimension. I added some pearls to the flowers. I didn't add a sentiment to the card on the outside of the card, as I wanted the focus to be on the flowers. 

What do you think? Please let me know. Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day!

2. a punched border/ horizontal strip- I used Martha Stuart punch around the page punches for snowflakes and ornaments. (lower right corner)

3. a fussy cut vertical strip, showing the rough part of the paper, which I distressed with metallic inks. (upper right corner)

4. two printed mats. Top one 5x7 in. with faux stitching around the border. Lower mat, a little bit bigger, with drie embossing and distressing with ink. (Left upper corner).

5. a cloth pin with wooden embellistment on top to pin a Christmas card or picture (from Dollar Tree, picture shown bellow). I added some glitter for more texture. (left lower corner).

DIY Holiday Tags

Hi everyone! Been while and I wanted to share my project.

Katie here with a fun and simple DIY Holiday Tags that anyone can do.

Who needs to buy tags when you can just make your own, right?


Here's what I used to make my tags:

- Craftwell's eBosser

- Recollections Christmas Tags stamp & die set from Michaels

- Hampton Art Mama Elephant Reindeer stamp & die set from Michaels

- ColorBox black stamp dye

- Color pencils

- Recollections Traditional Foil cardstock from Michaels

- Glitter cardstock

- Plain white cardstock

- Kraft paper

- Twine

- Foam adhesive squares


Reindeer Tags:

I started off by stamping the reindeers in black dye onto the plain cardstock then cutting them out from the stamp & die set from Recollections and colored them. Taking the tag die, I cut into one of each of the red & green foil cardstock. I also die cut some stars with the glitter paper. With all the pieces all cut-out and colored in, I used the foam adhesive squares behind each and placed them however I wanted on the tags. Attach each tag onto the gifts with twine and your gifts are ready! Don't worry, on the back there's space for messages.


Finished tag with the red foil cardstock



I also made the Christmas tree tag and it was about the same process, but used some leftover pattern paper for the tree and kraft paper for the tag itself.

I hope you all liked my project and it might not be that fancy, but could be great for those who are beginners. Feel free to left comments and feedback.

Until next time! Happy Holidays! Stay safe and warm.

- Katie

Christmas Treats Basket

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a cute little treat basket, just in time for Christmas treats.


I used the Divinity Designs Bountiful Basket die to die cut the basket out of kraft card stock. It was pretty easy to do. It fit on my snap machine and was a breeze to cut. I needed 2 pieces of each die cut, and it was pretty easy to assemble. I stamped and die cut the Heartfelt Creations Poinsettia and shaped it with embossing tools. I die cut the greens using the Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens die set. I adhered the poinsettia and the greens on the basket and added some Nuvo drops for some berries.

Now, I added some Nuvo drops bottles and Stickles bottles to show you the size of the basket. Now, this is a basket I would love to receive ;)


One more pic, before you leave :)


How did you like this basket today? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great Festive Season and a wonderful New Year!
