JOY

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

Christmas is one of my favorite occasions to make cards for. I love trying different color combos, but I definitely love the traditional colors more, which is apparent by this card. I die cut the pine leaves, ornaments, holly and poinsettia using dies from Spellbinders on white card stock and colored them all with Copics. Coloring them gives a little more dimension. I die cut the letters JOY on gold glitterstock - after all how can you make a Christmas card without even a little glitter! I inked the top and bottom of the card stock with Hero Arts Forever Green ink. I arranged all the die cuts on the card base and adhered them. I added some poinsettia sequins and glitter balls to finish the card.

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

DT: Dia de Los Muertos and Halloween crafts




 Dear Scrappers,


This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made three different crafts to celebrate Halloween and Dia de los Muertos:

For Halloween, I made these candle holders using Spellbinder dies and my SNAP:


note: for the Volleyball, I cut out one of the cats from the dies cut and replaced with a BoBunny die instead. I gave that candle holder to my daughter's team coach.

Every year, I go to a friend's house to celebrate Halloween and we bring our children Trick or Treating, however, with COVID, we decided to send each other goody bags with candy to each family:



Thus, I made some tags using a spellbinder treat bag tag die, and many of the Crafty Chica dia de los muertos stamps and dies, using my Crafty Chica printed paper pad and my SNAP. 

I also fussy cut some of stamped images from Paper Wings, some die cuts from Fun Stamper Journey (triangle banners), and HeroArts (banners):


I ended up making more than 30 tags. Here are some examples:

Front and back:




Front on the L side and back on the R side:



I also made some Dia de Los Muertos cards for some friends of mine using my left over die cuts and fussy cuts:




October was a very stressful and busy month. So, what do I do when I need to relieve stress?

CRAFT!!!!

Airbrushed Floral Cake

Hello everyone!

This is Lavanya with a floral cake today designed using Craftwell eBrush.

It's a simple eggless black forest cake decorated with whipped cream flowers on top. I began with baking a cake, layered with cherries and frosted it. I piped some flowers on nail using rose nozzle and to give the elegant look to the flower, I Airbrushed those piped flowers in red shades using Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit.

It's time saving, since instead of making different color creams, I used white whipped cream and airbrushed with required shades.

The following picture shows the output.


Thank you everyone for stopping by!!

With love,

DT: Virgen Del Valle Magnet

 


Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a frame for a picture magnet from a painting of mine:


I took the picture magnet and added to white card stock. In the back I added a print out of Our Lady of the Valley story:


The frame is double sided, so that the nice gold foiled frame could accent better the story in the back as well.

I made the frame out of die cuts from the Tattered Lace Column set dies (one of my favorites) using my SNAP machine while at work. I made this frame picture magnet for one of my bosses for his birthday.


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

Happy October,

and stay safe from this pandemic.

Light Up Balloon

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here on the blog today, with a light-up card. Believe it or not, this is my first light-up card and certainly won't be my last :)


I made this for my Dad's birthday. I started by making the card base. I took an A2 card base and adhered a light blue cardstock panel on to it. I folded the top of  the card base in to half, to make the easel. I die cut the hot air balloon using the Sizzix Hot Air Balloon die, on card stock and vellum using my Cut N Boss. I slightly colored the vellum with Brutus Monroe inks. I sandwiched the lights in between the cardstock and the vellum balloons and adhered it there and then placed the yellow pieces on the balloon. I die cut a few clouds using the die from the same die set. I adhered the switch part of the light behind one of the clouds. I die cut a banner and wrote 'Happy Birthday' since I couldn't find a stamp that would fit in it. I die cut another banner using another stamp set and wrote 'Dear Appa' - Appa is how I call him and it means Dad in our language Tamil. I adhered this banner with foam tape, on the inside of the card and it will serve as the 'stopper' for the easel. Here's a pic of it with the lights on:

And here's one with it flat, ready for the envelope:

It's Autumn here

Hi folks, 

Today I'm here with a fall theme 3D cake using Craftwell eBrush

I began with baking a basic vanilla sponge cake and cut into mini round circles. Then stacked and frosted those mini cake layers. Thinking pumpkin shape in mind, I tried to carve the same in the cake. Once getting desired shape, I covered the cake with fondant. Also made few fondant leaves using cutters along with this. Then used my Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit to give life to those mini pumpkins and leaves.







Thanks everyone for stopping by and see you soon with another project.

With love,

DT: Nurse’s Office Door Sign

 


Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to use my SNAP to create a door sign for my work:


I got some ideas from Pinterest, but decided to use flowers instead of stars to make it my own.

I wanted to continue the same design I used for my sanitation stations. Thus, I cut letters and Tiles from DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows paper, using the BoBunny larger alpha dies and Tattered Lace dies.

Here are some of the dies and the paper pack I used:


I cut a 7.5 x 7.5 in square out of chalk board paper. I cut 3 pieces (7 x 2 in.) of gold thick card stock to make the frames for the word tiles. For the smaller tiles, I cut 6 DCWV paper rectangles (3 x 1.5 in.) to frame the 2.75 x 1.25 in. black chalk board paper. I glued all frame titles using double side tape to the big chalk board square leaving an upper border to add my title.

Then, I cut flowers, leaves, and the alpha die cuts using my SNAP machine. 


Then, I trimmed 2 cards from the cards printed paper to die cut my smily face in gold and the (Craftwell) paper clip heart. I glued them together and glued it to a wooden cloth pin to make my sign marker.


Later, I realized that I should have glued the die cuts separated and on both side of the cloth pin, so remedied that by die cutting an arrow from the left over card and adding touches of black with a marker to emphasize the arrow and I added more black around the heart (not shown), the smily face. I paper pieced a nurse's hat and colored the cross with red gel pen:



Here some closer views of the finished door sign:


Again, I was able to use my SNAP machine while at work and now I have a nice sign to make me smile while I'm working.


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

Happy September,

and stay safe from this pandemic.

Airbrushed Firetruck Cake

Hello friends! Today I'm here with simple Firetruck Cake designed using Craftwell eBrush with siphon kit.

I baked a eggless vanilla cake of 6 inch and layered with fresh strawberry compote. Frosted using whipped cream of white.



The client is very keen on specific blue which can't be achieved with mixing food colors in whipped cream. So I used my Craftwell eBrush to achieve the desired color. The below picture shows the airbrush effect on cake.


Here is the final look of the firetruck cake.



Thanks everyone for stopping by!

Pop-up Pram

Hello everyone!! Welcome back to our blog. This is Berina here and I'm sharing this cute baby girl card with a surprise pop-up today.

One of our friends had a baby girl recently and I decided to make a card to welcome the baby. I used a white and soft pink theme for the card. I took an A2 card base and adhered the front with a baby pink panel. I took a white cardstock panel slightly smaller than A2 and adhered it on top. I die cut the Poppy Stamps Diamond background die on a baby pink card stock and adhered it on the white panel. I die cut pink layers using 2 dies from Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die set and layered it with plain white squares. On the smallest white square, I stamped the sentiment Welcome Little One from Tubby Craft - Fancy Sentiments stamp set. I adhered the layers using foam tape. Now I die cut some flowers and leaves using Karen Burniston - Popup flower pot die set and adhered them on the front.

Now on to the inside, I created a pop-up pram. I die cut the cute little pram using the Crafter's Companion - Baby Carriage die and adhered it as a pop-up using thin strips of pink card stock. I die cut a few baby accessories using the Crafter's Companion - Baby Accessories die set and adhered them on the inside of the card. 

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