Thank You Flowers!

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with this simple and elegant floral thank you card.

I embossed a piece of white cardstock with this beautiful flourish embossing folder. I die cut a few flowers in pink and leaves in green using Karen Burniston die. The butterfly die is from Crafter's Companion - Chic Butterflies set. I cut the sentiment using the Creative Expressions die. I then adhered them all down on to an A2 card base.

Then I made a  matching envelope with pink card stock and embossed it with a border embossing folder of the same set as the flourish embossing folder. How do you like this card and envelope? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.

Inspiring Altered Canvas

Greetings crafty dolls and guys from Desiree' of Her Own Fairytale with you!
Happy to be back and sharing my latest project with you all!
An altered canvas inspired by a Quote? A poem? A prayer?
All of the above! All I can say is that it's beautiful and came from an author name Susie Larson. As I recently hit one rough spot in life after another, these words inspired me AND reminded me I AM LOVED.

I started off this project with choosing a paper from the Black Rainbow stack from Michael's and it's an 8x10 canvas. It has all this pretty design and was in my craft stash.

I first flipped my paper over, traced around my canvas and cut it out using my paper trimmer. This will make the decopodging easier.

I put down a coat of white gesso on the canvas and let it dry.
Then I painted the canvas with a coat of white acrylic paint and also let it dry.
After giving them enough time to dry, I adhere my paper to my canvas and again let it dry again with all the decopodging.

I printed out the quote I wanted to use then cut it to bits and glued it down to my canvas. I did this by hand for the most part, clearly. Hehe! #HandmadeNotHallmark am I right?

It was then time to have the Snap machine get to Work!
I die cut some sparkles, a moon and I actually fussy cut out a heart from some other paper collection... from the stash of course.

After the dies are cut, they had to be arranged and adhered, right?
So that is what your girl Did! I used some holographic paper scraps, and even recycled some packaging paper by cutting some of the stars out of it. It was so pretty and hate to waste. Oh, I also had to add some beaded hearts and some sequins!

And this was the final product! I hope you LIKE and get INSPIRED! Most of all I hope you remember IF you are going through a rough time, these beautiful words can remind you too that YOU ARE LOVED! Please come back to visit this blog, be inspired by our other members design templates!

Sending you crafty love always!

DT Post: Bookmarks/ Tags

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to make some religious Bookmarks/ Tags for the end of school teacher’s gifts:

I used a stamp from Prima Marketing for Mary's image and some religious sentiments stamps for the back of the bookmark. Here are the rest of supplies I used:

I used my SNAP for cutting out the tags and the main bookmark using a die set from Paper Wishes club. 

I like to add dangles to my bookmarks and these shippies from Kaiser Crafts with religious sentiments were perfect...

After I added all layers and some stickles, I laminated each bookmark and cut it to size.

I added a ribbon with the dangle and used them as tags for these beautiful orchids I found for the main teachers.

I hope you enjoyed this picture loaded post and visit my blog for further ideas:

Dinosaur cake for 4 year old!!

Hello Everyone,

I am Swathi from CookiesCakeandLove and I am new to the Craftwell Design team. I am a hobby baker and bake goodies for my family and friends. I am delighted to join the Craftwell team and explore the ebrush with the siphon adapter to decorate my cakes.

I am recently blessed with a baby girl and I already have a son who turned 4 last week. I decided to pull out my baking pans after a long time to bake a cake for my son's birthday. I was also very eager to try out the ebrush system for decorating the cake.

My son loves dinosaurs and hence I decided at the last moment to create a dinosaur themed cake for his birthday. Since I dint have a lot of time to prepare, I decided to do airbrush dinosaur silhouettes on the cake.

I baked 4 layer chocolate and vanilla cake and frosted it with condensed milk buttercream. I should have gone with a regular American Buttercream but decided to use the condensed milk buttercream as this had raging reviews on the internet now. I tinted the buttercream white to give a plain blank canvas to airbrush on.

Cake all frosted with buttercream waiting to be airbrushed
I decided to try a sunset background for the cake to make the dinosaur silhouttes to pop out. I used US Cake supply airbrush colors to use with the ebrush. I used a golden yellow, Sunset orange and dark brown color to give the effect. I first added the yellow color in the siphon well and airbrushed the top of the cake. It was easy to empty the well, clean it and reuse it with another color. I then used the same technique to airbrush orange and brown color to the cake.

The cake airbrushed with sunset colors
I chilled the cake for 24 hours before I added the dinosaurs with the help of stencils made by my good friend Berina. I then placed stencil of dinosaur on the cake and used the black color to create a silhouette effect on the cake. I placed the different dinosaur stencils and sprayed black color with the ebrush,The dinosaurs came out really good with a slight blurred effect.

I further painted small trees, birds and rocks with black color and added crushed oreos on top of the cake and the bottom to give a fossil effect. I placed a brontosaurus toy on top of the cake with a happy birthday glowing plaque from Walmart with a number 4 candle. Hope you all liked my first post on this blog. We had a small celebration at home and everyone loved how the cake had come out.

I am still learning the different ways to use the ebrush and hope I could create more goodies in the days to come. Bye for now.

Peace On Earth

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

Ever since I bought this nativity border die from Taylored Expressions, I've been wanting to make a Christmas card with it. I die cut it out of Brutus Monroe Raven card stock with my Cut n Boss. I love the silhouette look. Then I took an A2 card base and blended the ink colors - Midnight, Plum, Cabana, Lapis and Sea from Brutus Monroe, in that order from top down. I blended a little bit of Phonebook ink, for the halo. I adhered the die cut at the bottom of the card base. I die cut just the star part with Brutus Monroe Sterling glitterstock and adhered it on top of the black star. For the sentiment, I found the perfect one in the Divinity Designs - Christmas Mini set. I heat embossed the Peace On Earth sentiment with Brutus Monroe Sterling Embossing powder.

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

More Than Unicorns (B-day Card)

Hello! Desiree here to share a simple Unicorn themed,
B-day card. I am totally #TeamUnicorn SO making this card was over due.

Tools used:

Craftwell SNAP machine
Craftwell eBrush
Misc. metal dies from my stash
CTMH Unicorn Dreams (retired stamp set)
Crystal Katana

Materials used:

Black 65lb. cardstock
White 65lb. cardstock
The Paper Studio Stargazer box of cards
Palette hybrid ink in black
Blue and purple Sharpies
Unicorn Party glitter from Target

I started off this card by stamping on my card base, I took
the largest unicorn stamp and got an excellent image stamped! Love that!

Next I took my white paper and cut out a couple of layer pieces. I also stamped a sentiment from the unicorn stamp set on the front cloud.

I thought my clouds could use a little color and so, a lil' eBrush action was called for. I chose a purple and blue sharpie to match my card base. Then I just added a touch of color to the cloud edges. I added some mounting tape to the back of my clouds to add some dimension.
I liked how the unicorn looked against the background of my card. I used my Snap machine and my star and sparkle die set to cut out some stars and sparkles using my black 65 lb. cardstock. I then will arrange and adhere them to my card base.

I used another stamp from my stash to place a Happy Birthday, sentiment on the inside of the card.
I used the Unicorn Party, glitter to adorn the sentiment.

After adhering my stars and sparkles die cuts, I also added some of the glitter to the front of the card too!
Once I was happy with how it looked, I knew the card was complete. 

Well, that is my project share for today! I kind of love it!
I hope you do too. I also hope as always, that you were inspired! Best wishes and much crafty love to all of you!

Stars and Sparkle

Hi Everyone! 
This is Katie again with another project just in time for 4th of July 
and I wanted to make this one quick & fun!

With this project, I kept it easy and simple that anyone can do theirselves. First, I die-cut some stars in varies sizes and a square frame with a thicker paper. Die-cut the word "Sparkle" the Cut'n'Boss machine.

Next, I used Spectrum Noir marker's DR3 (Red shade) and TB6 (Blue shade) with the eBrush system. Took turns spraying both colors to my liking onto plain printer paper.

I placed all my cut outs on top of my airbrush work and started brainstorms where they would go.

So I couldn't decide how to cut the background and left it as is. Just for now, I assembled all my cut outs and placed it like I was making a card.

Hope you all enjoyed this project! Until next time :)

DT: Scrapbooking layout: Meeting Jorge Ramos

Dear scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for CraftWell.
For this post, I decided to make double scrapbooking layout for my father for Father's day. My father got to meet one of his favorite authors (Jorge Ramos, a Univision journalist) last year, and got his book autographed. That was a dream come true for my father, thus, I decided to give him a famed double layout featuring this meeting:

Left page:

Right page:

A closer look at the many details I added:

I used many die cuts left over of other projects made for this blog, like the stamped sentiments used for the teachers bookmakers last year:

These metallic peppers were also left over stamped and die cut for a class I thought a few years ago:

I cut a piece of a journaling card from this fantastic Ole line from Sabor Papel paper company:

To frame my vertical pictures I used some leftover squares from the teachers bookmarks:

This metallic banner also comes from the left over stamped and die cut pieces from above. The same with the blue flowers from the borders. I also used paper frill from Doodlebug Design for the borders as well as strips from a dulces patterned paper.

My materials:
