Birthday Shaker Card

 Hi everyone! 👋

Katie here! It's been a while since my last post so I bring you my first try at making a shaker card and it was for my goddaughter's 1st birthday.


Craftwell eBosser

Craftwell Embossing Folders: Love Triangles and Cabbage Rose

Cupcake Shaker Kit from Amazon

Hygloss' Acetate Sheets from Amazon

Spellbinders Shapeabilities Words Cutting Dies: Happy Birthday Die

Assorted Colors of Sequins from Amazon

Variety of cardstock

Recollections Foam Adhesive Squares from Michaels

I honestly had no idea how to make one so I went on YouTube for guidance. 

For the cupcake shaker, there's different ways you can achieve this part and I chose to make multiple layers from cardstock for the top of the cupcake. I think it took about 6 or 7 layers. Glued all the layers together except for one, poured in 3 different colors of the sequin then glued a cut piece of the acetate sheet and the last layer. Once the top was assembled and dried, I glued the rest of the pieces for the cupcake. 

The card, I kept it simple with 3 different colors and embossed one with Craftwell's Love Triangles folder. Die cut the word Happy Birthday from Spellbinders die set. 

There you have it! The end result shown in the photo above. 

I added another surprise by embossing tissue paper with Craftwell's Cabbage Rose folder and wrapped the gift in it.

I hope everyone enjoyed my post and will give it a try if you've never made one!

Until next time! From Katie 😉😄

DT: Poster Board- Whoooo Is Doing The Right Choice?



This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell
For this post, I played with more of Get Well Kit from Queen and Co. and created a shaker mask for my Poster Board:

I really like these shaker kits. This one is the mask shaker kit. I love that it comes with everything needed to create a shaker.

For the Poster Board, I created the cutting files using the Cricut Design Space Software and cut them using my Cricut Explorer. I was ok with the whole design, but I felt that it needed more. Thus, when I saw this new Mask Shaker kit, I knew that it was just what I needed to give this board more texture.

My daughter had fun using gel pens and metallic markers to decorate the owl and the sign. My students are very pleased with the end result.

Special Day Lace

 Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today with this beautiful and elegant wedding card.

If you've followed me for some time now, you'd probably know that I'm a big fan of Amazing Paper Grace dies. I bought this die a while back and never got to use it. I die cut it on Navy card stock and put it on top of white card stock. I tied a bow with silver glitter tulle for some elegance. I stamped the sentiment - it's from an old Just Rite stamp set, with navy ink on white card stock, cut it out and matted with navy card stock. 

How do you like this quick and simple card? Do let me know in the comments. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!!

Airbrushed Heart Cake

 Hello everyone,

This time I'm with a heart cake project designed using Craftwell eBrush kit.

I baked a red velvet cake in round pan and frosted with cream cheese frosting. Then I carved the cake to heart shape and frosted again with cream cheese. Beauty of red velvet cake lies in the drizzle of red crumbs on top of the cake. Hence I dried few cake scraps in microwave and pulsed it in the mixer to get fine crumbs.

I gently added the fine crumbs on top and sides of cake. But I felt the red color was not bright enough. Here the magic comes. Quickly grabbed the Craftwell eBrush and Siphon kit and added red airbrush color into it. I carefully airbrushed on the crumbs managing the crumbs not to fly due to pressure from airbrush. Here I got the bright red color heart ❤️ finally.

Then used some gold colored fondant to make a chain and lock🔒. Attaching the picture for reference.

Thank you!

With love,

DT: Get Well Shaker Kit



This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell
For this post, I played with the Get Well Kit from Queen and Co. and created a get well soon card and a clip for my door sign:

This is such a fun kit to use. I really like the other shaker kits as well.

Here is the front side of the card with the matching envelop, I created with a left over strip of paper:

For the inside of the card:

I used the included clear stamps for the sentiments and used CTMH black and cherry inks. I drew the outline of the bandage using the metal die as an stencil and glitter pen.

The card base and envelop come from this kit from CTMH:

Here is a closeup of the shaker die cut bandage:

For the door sign clip, I used the same Get Well Kit and just outlined the backing paper using the transparency insert included in the shaker kit. Later I glued the shaker bandage die cut to a Dollar Tree chalk board sign clip:

Here is the inside of the shaker bandage die cut, before adding the transparency and frame:

Tinkerbell Birthday Banner

 Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with the birthday banner I made for my daughter's 5th birthday party. My daughter wanted a Tinkerbell themed birthday party this year and I decided on making a tree stump cake for her, with Tinkerbell and fairy figurines. I wanted to make a banner that would go well with the cake design. I couldn't find much inspiration on tree stump banners online. So I decided to make my own version. Warning: This is a picture heavy post!

I started by cutting the banners using the outer die from Spellbinders Double Heart Gatefold die set. Then I embossed all the banner pieces with Craftwell Woodgrain Cottage embossing folder. I swiped the Brutus Monroe macchiato ink over the embossed lines. I die cut all the alphabets using Altenew Mega Alphabet dies on gold card stock. I adhered the letters on to the banners with foam tape.

For embellishing the banner, I decided to use flowers. I had a lot of flower dies, some of them were not even used once! What better time to use them than now! So I took out a bunch of die sets from different companies and started die cutting them. My Cut N Boss and SNAP were working full night shifts!

Here are some of the flower/buerfly dies I used : Crafter's Companion - Classic Lily, Crafter's Companion - Chic Butterflies, Karen Burniston - Flower Pot pop up, MFT - Lily, Sizzix - Anthurium, Sizzix - Sweet Pea, Spellbinders - Coreopsis, Spellbinders - Floral Oval, Tutti Designs - Lily Of the Valley. 

My other daughter punched out some leafy vines using a MS punch. I added all these flowers, butterflies and leaves to the banners.

The banner came out exactly the way I envisioned! It looked so pretty on the green/yellow tulle backdrop I had made. If you are short on time, my only advise would be to use those huge floral frames (like the Lily of the Valley or the Floral Oval) instead of making 3D flowers - those 3D flowers will take some time but they are worth every second!

Let me know how I did! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day.

Painted isomalt cake

Hello everyone!

This time I'm with a different project using Craftwell eBrush. It's a painted isomalt cake.
I began with baking a small 4 inch caramel cake and frosted with buttercream. Later used Craftwell airbrush and siphon kit loaded with teal airbrush color. I airbrushed little by little like a patch on the cake and gave a quick scrap over the cake to get the painted effect. 

Then I made a isomalt topper to give the glass effect. Attaching the picture here:

Thank you everyone for stopping by.

With love

DT: Slim Line Birthday Card



This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell
For this post, I made an slim line birthday card for a friend of mine:

For the inside of the card:

In short: 
I used one of the CTMH card kit sketches and cut the paper following the cutting guidelines.
Then, I die cut the stamped sentiments, using the cropped corners rectangle dies and made a open frame with its smaller nesting set.

Then, I added several layers of skinny double side tape and a transparency. Added some sequins and did a smaller shaker box for the sentiment.

I added some strips of printed paper as a banner and fussy cut a sentiment from the DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows paper.

For the inside, I added a stamped 'happy birthday sentiment and outlined with gel metallic pens.

Christmas in July

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

I used used Ivory card base for this card. I feel that it gives a more Christmassy feeling to the card :) I die cut the poinsettia layers on red and green cardstock using the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die on my Cut N Boss. For the Stained Glass Window die, I used golden colored card stock. The leaves are from the Spellbinders Fern die set. I added some pearls and gems to the arrangement. I didn't want to add a sentiment on the front as I was quite satisfied with this arrangement and didn't want to add more elements.

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