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!

With love,

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.

DT: Sanitation Station- Back to School

 



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 titles and signs for 5 sanitation stations for my work:

I used dollar store containers and chalk board signs/ tags. I cut letters from DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows paper, using the BoBunny larger alpha dies and TH Sizzix dies. Then, I run the words stuck backwards and upside down through my Xyron sticker maker and glued the words to the chalkboard tags:


I even cut some monograms and added them to the mini chalk board signs. I didn't have much time to finish the 5 stations, so I didn't search for medical related dies to decorate further my stations. I will for sure better this project soon.

The end result is cute and very practical. It was a nice project to do quickly using my SNAP machine while at work.


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 Back to School


and stay safe from this pandemic.

Tri-fold Shaker Card

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here on the blog today, with this tri-fold, see through shaker thank you card.
I started by making the see through shaker. I die cut 2 hot air balloons using the Sizzix Hot Air Balloon Die on the patterned paper pad from Brutus Monroe. I took a piece of string attached the balloon and the basket part to it, leaving enough length at both ends of the string, so that I can attach the ends of the string to the frame. Now I adhered the other balloon and the basket on the back side, so that the thread is sandwiched between the 2 pieces of balloons and both front and back looks the same. I took a panel of size 4 3/4" x 5 1/2" of card base weight (110 lbs) and scored at 1/2" mark along the 4 3/4" side. This 1/2" will later be adhered to a A2 card base, making a tri-fold. In this panel, I cut out a window leaving a border of 1/2" along all sides. I adhered acetate on to it. I sandwiched the thread from the hot air balloon between the window panel and foam tape, on the top and bottom. I added shaker mix from Doodles Paper Playground. I closed the shaker with acetate on other side as well. I took out a panel of Silver glitterstock from Brutus Monroe and cut out a window frame, leaving 1/2" around all the sides. I adhered this frame on the shaker panel, to hide the foam tape.
Now I took a regular A2 card base and adhered the 1/2" extending out from the shaker panel on to one end of the card base. I inked one of the panels with BM Speckled Ink with the BM Cloud stencil to create a sky like scene. I die cut the sentiment "Thanks" using the BM thanks die on silver glitterstock and added it to the panel. Here's a view of the card, fully opened up.

How do you like this card? Please do let me know your thoughts and comments. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

Airbrushed Coffee Mug Cake

Hello everyone! Today, I've got a 3D cake design which I used the Craftwell eBrush.

I began with baking chocolate cake, stacked cake of 4 layers and carved them to achieve a coffee mug shape. Once I got the desired shape, frosted the mug carefully using whipped cream.

For the handle, I used fondant with wire support to hold the handle shape. You will see the mug shape cake below:

Then I used my Craftwell eBrush & siphon kit to color the mug cake in a brown shade. It's so simple and easy with the eBrush is in hand to achieve the design.
Though the shape is not perfect, I'm still happy with my result. I hope you all were inspired and make your version ;)
Thanks everyone for stopping by!!

DT: Happy Birthday Card



Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to recycle a stamped image I made for a previous post and make it a card for a friend:


I had heat embossed the bluebonnet image on watercolor paper and used water colors to paint it. Now I used the colored image and mounted on a blank card using 3D dots.

Here are the materials I used and a short tutorial:





This is the final card:

A closer look to the layered die-cut frame:


I hope you enjoyed my daughter's creation and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy July and stay safe from this pandemic.

Summer Birthday Flowers

Hello everyone!! Welcome back to our blog. This is Berina here today, with this Summer birthday card with lot of flowers:


I started by taking a card base of size 6" x 6". I cut out the matting layers in yellow and white and die cut the Ornate Oval at the center of all layers using the die set from Divinity Designs. I die cut the trellis background using the Trellis die set from Dare 2B Artzy on Rinea gold foil card stock. I adhered this on the window, in between the layers. Now I die cut a lot of flowers using the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms on Orange and Yellow card stock and shaped them. I die cut some leaves using the Spellbinders Foliage die set and some swirls using the Spellbinders Floral Flourishes die set. I arranged them all together on the card base and adhered them. I stamped the sentiment "Happy Birthday" from Brutus Monroe Sharon's Script stamp set on a piece of yellow card stock and cut it out in to a banner and added it. I added 1 final die cut - using the Heartfelt Creations Swirly Accent Spray die set. Here's a close up on the details:


A lot of die cutting went in to this, thanks to my Cut N Boss. I love how it turned out, with the bright Summer-y colors and golden accents. Please do let me know your thoughts! Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.

Apple Mousse cake

Hi folks! This is Lavanya with an Apple Mousse cake today. This is something which I wanted to try a long back.

I began making a white chocolate mousse and gently poured it into an apple silicon mold and froze it overnight. Next day, I de-molded the mousse cake and placed it on a cake tray.

I also made a mirror glaze and poured it on the top of cake to get the mirror effect. Though I was not satisfied with the color and glaze effect alone, I grabbed my Craftwell eBrush to add a red color in siphon kit.

The below picture shows the final look of a cake:


Thanks for stopping by!!
