Joy to the World Christmas Card

Welcome to the Craftwell blog! Desiree' with you again!
Today I am sharing a card I made using my Craftwell Snap machine, some inspiring
paper and a few dies! Keeping reading for the details.

As always this project started off by choosing my papers. I used one paper
collection I had in my stash, Oh Holy Night, by Simple Stories.
It is an older collection BUT a beautiful one!
I also used a new 6x6 paper stack, it is a Michaels hot buy and I love it!!
It is called Hope & Faith, by Recollections,
Following are some pics of the stack and the paper I used from this stack on
the card.

I used this cut-apart page for my card sentiments! It was so easy! I am happy with the end 
result! Hopefully you all will like it too!

I cut all my die cuts out using my Snap machine. I then stacked and adhered my cuts, I then stacked my sentiment that I also die cut, on top. Next I used some Tim Holtz brads to attach them to one another and my card front.  

I the place some doubled sided tape to stack my card front on some gold foil paper.

Once things were centered and stacked I adhered the stack to my card, using that double 
sided tape to adhere it all.

For the inside I die cute another sentiment from the paper, stacking it up on some die cuts
I made out if the gold foiled paper.

Here is the final result! I am happy with it and hope you were inspired by it!
In advance let me wish you a very Merry Christmas! I hope this season and the 
new year will be full of blessings for us all!

Cupcake Bouquet - Celebration time

Hello everyone! This is Lavanya with a trending edible bouquet πŸ’for the holiday celebration season.πŸŽ„⛄πŸŽ…πŸ¦Œ

I started with baking cupcakes of vanilla flavor with spongy texture and topped those little cupcakes with tulips flowers of buttercream frosting.

Then airbrushed those beautiful tulips with Craftwell eBrush using siphon kit. Each bouquet are transformed into colorful flowers with the magic of the eBrush. It's completely a mess free task and grease free hands when the eBrush is on hand.

DT: Pumpkin Patch Time

 Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this project, I decided to finally finish decorating a shaker album kit from ClearScraps to house some pictures from last year's pumpkin patch at the Atonement Academy (part of the AHG troop #TX0814 fundraiser):

I started this album following Clear Scraps instructions about staining the wooden pieces and adding the papers, as well as assembling the shaker cover. Then, I diverted by adding other elements and modifying the included stickers from Carta Bella to spell out Patch in my banner, which I hanged from a vine ribbon. The ribbon, pearl  cabochons, and metal leaves are part of a 3D embellishments box (in the top middle of the collage picture).

Materials (stickers are part of the Clear Scraps kit):

I used my SNAP to die cut some pumpkins as embellishments and to trim the pictures using some banners  and pumpkins dies:

Here some close up pictures of the cover: 

and an example of the inside pages (more pages to come yet):

The shaped pictures don't need extra mats and the colorful Carta Bella papers are a perfect background:

Fall themed cookies


It’s Swathi here from CookiesCakeandLove and this time I am back with yet another themed cookie for the blog. I received a lot of requests from friends after seeing my Halloween cookies to make some fall themed cookies for thanksgiving and I abided by their request.

Instead of my classic sugar cookies, I made some pumpkin spiced cookies making use of the last of the pumpkins of the season and glazed them with royal icing.
I shaped them using the Wilton fall leaf cookie cutter and pumpkin cookie cutters. I airbrushed them with my favorite Craftwell eBrush siphon kit and the colors really popped out.

This is to go out as cute return gifts for thanksgiving dinner party and I enjoyed making them a lot. Hope this inspires you to make some holiday baking goodies for your close ones.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone and see you next time with a different project.

Snowflake Ornament

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

I die cut the Rinea Gold foil with the Hero Arts Snowflakes and Ornament Fancy die. I embossed a piece of Brutus Monroe - Brown Butter cardstock with Craftwell - Woodgrain Cottage and die cut the ornament window on my Cut 'N Boss. I created the shaker window by using foam tape and acetate. I used Doodles Paper Playground - Ruby Sparkle blend for the shaker mix. I adhered the gold foil ornament on the acetate window. I also die cut the letters 'joy' using the die from Whimsy stamps, on gold foil and adhered it in the center. 

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

Paw patrol theme cake - ruff ruff

Hi everyone! This is Lavanya again today with another airbrushed cake.

The client who ordered Paw Patrol theme cake was none other than my 3 year old bub. He approves each design by finding out correctly once I begin designing the cake. That's how I get little satisfaction on my work.

I baked a vanilla pineapple🍍cake and frosted with whipped cream a day ago of the party. Then airbrushed blue using Craftwell eBrush with siphon kit.

Then made a lookout tower and hand painted using edible colors and other designs. Assembled all the accents together before the party. Here is the final paw patrol theme cake 🐾 for your views.

I also made few cake pops to match the theme and those pops are also airbrushed using eBrush
after a chocolate dip. And the party was really (p)awesome..

I thank you everyone for stopping by. Please share your views and suggestions.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

American Pride Wreath

Greetings to you all and a heartfelt thank you to our service men, women, and their families!
Thank you, and Happy Veteran's Day!!
I am here today to share a project I did inspired by all those who have served!
Especially those loved ones of mine who have served!
It is a simple heart shaped wreath.

I cut out some paper strips in some blue star paper, and some red foil heart paper. 
I then hot glues my paper strips to the foam wreath. Then fir the white stripes I wrapped some white seam binding to the wreath.
Next I used my Snap machine to cut out my stars in silver foil paper. 
After that I hot glued my stars onto the wreath and used some seam binding to hang it on the wall.
Anyways those a the details and this is my project. As always I hope you were inspired.
I also hope that if you, or a member of your family, or a loved one has served our nation,
I hope you feel proud and appreciated! Again, I thank you! 

          Sincerely- Desiree'

DT: Spooky Halloween Tag/Card

 Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
With Halloween around the corner, I made this tag/card for a dear friend of mine, who always sends me cards:

 and this is the backside:

I bought this TH dies a while ago, but haven't done any halloween projects in a while, thus, I decided to give them a try while I was keeping an eye on our AHG troop pumpkin patch:

I'm amazed about how long the SNAP's battery last. I really love that I can take it everywhere I go and can do my crafting projects.

In short:
I cut the wood grain cardstock (HeroArts)  first with the circle die and then, with the owl die I cut the outline. I cut a complementary circle using the orange distress cardstock (TH) and layered the cuts:

Later, I cut the sentiments from the same wood grain cardstock, distressed with a bronze ink (HeroArts), and let them dry. Meanwhile I added some black stickles to the owl's eyes:

When the sentiments die cuts were dried, I passed them through the Xiron to add adhesive, while I distressed the orange background of the tag. I cut the edge strip of the Mischief cardstock:

In short, I used the printed card stock with Belle and the books, which coordinates perfectly with the die, and cut it out using my SNAP for the mini-album project. I used one of those left-over cuts for making this card, by cutting the printed cardstock to fit in my card. I stamped the sentiment using HeroStamps ink and I also stamped the background for the inside of the card, stamping another sentiment in top. For extra spunk, I added rhinestones from Queen & Co and popped up the Belle die cut and the stamped sentiment. Super easy...

Halloween Cookies


It's Swathi again from CookiesCakeandLove and this time I am back making some Halloween special cookies using my buddy the Craftwell eBrush. I had some requests from my son’s school to make some Halloween cookies and I couldn’t turn down the request πŸ˜‚.

These are my classic sugar cookies and I used the royal icing to ice these cookies. I bought some Halloween cookie cutters from Walmart at a very low price last year post Halloween and I have been waiting to try them out forever πŸ˜†.

I filled these cookies with white royal icing however I wanted a more pristine white for the ghosts so I airbrushed them with white colour to give the extra shine. I also made a couple of pumpkin shaped cookies and airbrushed them with orange and red to give a mixed colour.

I was really happy with how they turned out. I made an entire batch of them and sent to school with my son who is celebrating Halloween a little earlier this year 😊.

Hope you like my cookies and it inspires you to make some tonight 😊
