Air brushed Gold cake

Hello everyone!

I'm excited to share my new cake of this year which is decorated using Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit

It's simple to frost the cake in gold if you have airbrush handy. I began with baking a 6 inch tall cake and frosted with white buttercream. Then airbrushed with edible gold color using both the eBrush and siphon kit.

Here is the complete glittery look of the cake: 


Thank you

DT: Christmas Notepad Holders Using Vinyl Die Cuts

 



Hi,

This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. 
For this post, I made some little, easy to sell gifts for the Christmas Bazzar at our parish for the AHG Booth:




I found some cute mini chalk (white) board easels at the Dollar store and decided to decorate them with vinyl to make some cute Christmas themed notepads holders. As friend of mine told me how easy it was to use die to cut on vinyl, thus I decided to try this method instead of using my Cricut.

My friend was right, it was super easy, but it has a learning curve. Like using transfer tape to apply the shapes, and intricate designs might be more challenging. No heat setting needed for this project.

In general, it was a fun experience and I totally recommend it.

Christmas Ornament

 Hi Everyone!

Christmas is closing in and I thought it would be fun to make a shaker ornament to place on your tree.

Or it can be used as a gift tag as well.




MATERIALS:

Craftwell's eBosser

Metallic Red, White and Grey Cardstock from Michaels

Hygloss Overhead Projector Sheets Acetate Transparency Film

Waffle Flower Nesting Basics Dies Bundle from Amazon

Christmas Themed Stamps from Michaels

Sequins from Amazon

ColorBox Assorted Colors Ink Pad

Single Hole Punch

White Ribbon

Clear Glue




First, I chose one of the large round dies and cut-out a base layer. 
Then took both the previous large die and another round die that was 2 size smaller to cut about 6 layers with the white cardstock, and one layer with the metallic red cardstock. I die-cut a small square and circle with the grey cardstock.

Taking the base layer, I stamped Christmas words and additional decorations together. 

When gluing the layers on the base, on the 3rd layer glue the grey square at the top and then glue circle near the edge of the square. Then continue gluing the remaining layers except the red one.

I added the silver, clear and white sequins and kept them in the center.

Cut and glue a round circle from the acetate film then take the red cut-out layer and also glue on.

While the layers are drying, punch a hole at the small circle then place ribbon through hole and tie a bow.

And there you have a Christmas Ornament thats also a shaker.


Hope you enjoyed my project!

Edible jewels

Hello everyone! This month I have come up with edible jewelry using Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit.

I baked a cake for prince theme birthday party and the theme requires edible gold crown and edible gold jewels to decorate the cake. I made fondant crown and jewels in fondant using silicon mold and then airbrushed using gold luster dust mixed with lemon extract with the help of Craftwell eBrush and siphon kit. Arranged the jewels after frosting the cake. 

Attaching the cake picture for reference. 




Thank you

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a Christmas card idea that you could easily make multiples of - just in time for sending Christmas cards. 

If you are like me, you are frantically looking for Christmas card designs that you make and send out 20's or more in a week or 2 at the max - that includes addressing and sealing the envelope as well. You are in the right place! This is 1 such design that I was able to make 20's in 3 - 4 days, working only a few hours every night, since I work during the day and have small kids. I first die cut all the greenery pieces I needed for this card - I used the Tim Holtz Mini Holiday Greens die set. These were perfect size for my A2 card. This set has a variety of greens, so I a bunch of different ones and cut them all in 1 pass on my SNAP. Next on to the poinsettia - this is a multi-step process. I stamped the poinsettia outline stamps from the Poinsettia & Holly Clusters - these stamps stamp out a few at a time, so it saves time (same with the dies as well). I stamped them with dark red ink on red cardstock to save time on coloring. Using a stamping platform helped speed up the process. I die cut all the poinsettia layers then and shaped them all with my embossing tool and foam mat. Then I adhered the layers to make the individual poinsettias and added prills for the center. Now comes the sentiment. I die cut the layers I used for the sentiment panel. All the layers are from Heartfelt Creations - Royal Elegance die set. The touch of gold adds just the right amount of elegance needed for this otherwise simple and almost flat card. I heat embossed the sentiment from Sunny Studios with gold embossing powder. I used a stamping platform for this step too. I stamp the sentiment on a panel and sprinkle embossing powder - I do this until I have a bunch ready to be heated and then I heat them all at once. This saves some time too. Now, all that's left is assembling them. I used foam tape for the sentiment panel and for the other pieces, I used liquid glue in a fine tip bottle. That's it! This card required the extra stamp for postage, but it's worth it, don't you think?

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

DT: Paper Pinwheels

  





Hi,

This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell
For this post, I played with the pinwheels die from CTMH and made a "Merry Christmas" banner and several other projects for our Festival at the (Pumpkin) Patch for the AHG troop:

To some pinwheels, I attached mini wooden clothpins to the back, so they can be put on Christmas trees or on big paperclips to make bookmarks: 



To some, I punched a whole to add some twine and a little light bulb bead:


To some of them, I added push pins to attach to pencils:


I made many die cuts and gave them to the girls at the troop to decorate them and we sold them at the festival:

Grateful

 Hi Everyone!

Katie here with a Thanksgiving inspiring card. 

I haven't found an opportunity to use my Spellbinder Wreath die set and since Thanksgiving to closing in soon, Thanksgiving card it is!



MATERIALS:

Craftwell Cut'n'Boss

Craftwell Woodgrain Cottage Embossing Folder

Craftwell's Pocket Dies Thankful Holiday set (used the stem with leaves die)

Spellbinders Shapeabilities Wreath Die Set of 5 (used the large wreath & stem with leaves dies)

Thanks stamp set from Amazon (used the Grateful stamp)

We R Precision Press Advanced

Variety of cardstock

ColorBox - Wicked Black

Aleene's Clear Gel - Tacky Glue

X-Acto knife

Adhesive foam squares

Twine


For the base card, I embossed white cardstock with Craftwell's Woodgrain Cottage folder and took it farther with a brown color pencil to somewhat have that woodgrain look.

Next, I die cut 3 colors for the large wreath and arranged them in different position on the card. Did the same for the stem with leaves dies and arrange as desired. So I didn't have a pumpkin die and ended up cutting one out with a pair of scissors and X-Acto knife. If you decide to do this, please be careful and watch your fingers! Once all pieces are glued on, tie a bow with the twine and glue on as well. As for the sentiment on the front, I chose to use Grateful stamp with black ink on white cardstock and cut-out an outline of the word. Place the adhesive foam square behind the word and placed it as shown.

The finished card is shown below. 


I hope you all enjoyed my project and got inspired. Until next time!

Airbrushed Bitcoin

Hello everyone! Happy late Halloween. This week, I'm working on something new which uses both Craftwell's eBrush and siphon kit. 

The idea was to bring a digital item to the physical world. Yes, it was to make a fondant bitcoin as a topper.

I made a bitcoin with white fondant and airbrushed the coin in gold airbrush color and let it dry. 

Then baked a vanilla cake frosted with white buttercream and used the dried bitcoin as a topper.

Below I've attaching pictures of the bitcoin and finished cake:



I hope everyone enjoyed my creative bitcoin topper and gets inspired!


Thank you,

Bookmarks For Kids

 Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a beautiful bookmark for kids.

I wanted to make something special for my daughter's class when they were doing virtual classes last year. We decided to make bookmarks for each one of them. I used this die set from Spellbinders, which had the clipboard, paper clips and pencil dies. I made a slim clipboard with the die and added a ruled paper on top of it. I then die cut the paper clips in a few different colors and adhered them on top. The pencil had a few different parts, most of which I die cut in white card stock and my daughter colored them with markers. After adhering all the pieces and stamping some quotes, I put it in laminating sheets and passed it through my laminator. Then I cut out the laminated bookmark, punched out a hole on top and added a yellow ribbon. That's it. We made around 25 bookmarks. It was so easy to make once we got the process down.

What's your favorite thing to mass produce? Do let me know in the comments. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great day.

- Berina
