DT: Telephone Box Card



This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. For this post I decided to make a Telephone booth box card for my son's 16th birthday. He is wanting a phone for a while, but he didn't have the real need for it and we are delaying the social media as long as we can. Thus, I decided to play a trick on him.

When I saw the terrific telephone treat box kit by Tonic, I knew that it was the perfect die for what I had in mind. I love the English Telephone booth and the color combination is just perfect. This die is meant for a treat box, so I tweaked it a little to make it a box card, by trimming the topper and glue it directly to the top flap.

Some tips to work with this dies:

Use the foam tape included to hold the dies in the acetate to hold in place when die cutting the sentiments inside the rectangle:


I cut an strip large enough to add the "16" crown as a popup element, but forgot to add the extra fold to make it pop up on its own:

This box is so cute that can also hold a tea light LED candle inside:

I was able to fold the box car to put it inside of an envelop with a note, "Enjoy your phone":

Here is my son reaction to the card:

At the end, I decided to make the little base included in the kit to use as cake topper as well:

I followed all the amazing instructions included with these dies and kit. This is the first kit that includes such detailed instructions; no need to hunt for videos in the web. Love it

Airbrushed Planter

 Hi All!

Katie here with another fun project using Craftwell's eBrush Airbrush System. 

Taking a plain plastic planter and making it your own. A fun project for kids or by yourself.


Craftwell eBrush Airbrush System

Sharpie Markers

Spectrum Noir Markers

Small Plastic Planter from Target ($3 for 2)

Painter's Tape

Inspirational Photo (optional)

I couldn't decide on what to airbrush the planter and went with a photo of a sunset as my inspiration. That photo is above.

First off I taped off the selection I didn't want to get color. My strategy was to start with lighter colors and work myself to the darker ones or I would reverse. Do what you feel would work for you because honestly you might have a different approach. 

Used a mix of Sharpie and Spectrum Noir markers because I might not have the right shade of color and will use two different brands of markers.

Below you can see what airbrushing looks like and I'm happy with the result.

I hope everyone enjoyed my project and I'll airbrush a few more planters for those plant lovers out there.
I'm open to suggestions what designs I should airbrush on them.

Until next time! Happy crafting.

Birthday Orchids

Hello everyone! This is Berina here today, with a beautiful floral birthday card that I made for my daughter's birthday recently. If you've seen my posts, you probably know I love floral cards especially adding 3 dimensional flowers. Orchids are one of the most beautiful flowers, my grandmother had a lot of them in her house.

I started by making the beautiful orchids. The dies are from one of Susan's Garden's older set called Cattleya Orchids. I die cut them on my Craftwell SNAP. I used my Copics to add some shading to the die cuts before shaping them and putting them together. I die cut some oval pieces in white and purple and adhered the orchids and leaves to it. Added a simple birthday sentiment from an old Verve stamp set. 

What do you think about this card? Please do let me know. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

DT: Fiesta Medals/ Ribbons and Fiesta Earrings


This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. For this post I decided to use my several Fiesta stamps and dies to create shrink plastic charms for fiesta ribbons and earrings:

First, I used the colorful flower gift bows from the Dollar Tree and complimented them with the tail parts of the Ribbon Rosette Die & Stamp Showcase Set, Tonic Studio. I also used the banner and trophy die (which I cut to just show the No. 1 part) out of gold paper.

I used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to highlight the embossed No. 1 sentiment and created a 2 for the other two ribbons. It is hard to see that part in the picture below, but I did trim the center part to show them later on (above picture).

The ribbons looked kind of plain, so I decided to stamp charms using my HeroArts and FSJ fiesta sets on printable shrink plastic (Sizzix, on the white/ rough side) and then die cut them with the respective die. My daughter helped me color the stamped images using gel pens and metallic/ glitter markers. Then, I punched a hole in each die cut and attached the rings. I, then, used my heat gun to shrink the plastic- scary step as it curls totally up until it reaches its final size where it flattened back. If not perfect continue melting and turning back and fort until nice and straight:

Sadly the metallic/ glitter part doesn't show on the shiny side of the charm:

Here, a closer look of each fiesta charm pair:

And finally, the fiesta chihuahuas were so cute that I made earrings out of the charms:

and on the ribbons, I added two or just one charm:

Lily Of The Valley Basket

 Hello everyone! This is Berina here today, with a beautiful floral project perfect for Spring!

I love this Lily of the Valley from Susan's Garden dies. I created a bunch of the inflorescence and leaves. My Craftwell SNAP made it a breeze to die cut multiples of them. I made the basket using Divinity Designs - Bountiful Baskets die and embossed it with Craftwell - Woodgrain Cottage embossing folder. I added a piece of thermocol to the basket, so that I could arrange the flowers and pin them. I broke few tooth picks in half and added them to the flower inflorescence and leaves with a very thin washi tape. This helped me pin them to the thermocol inside the basket. This was so much fun to make! 

How do you like this project? I have it on my work desk and it makes me happy.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

3D Flower Bouquet

Hi All!! 

Katie here with my 3D flower bouquet card and can be used for any occasion.


Craftwell eBosser

Craftwell eBrush Airbrush System

Sharpie markers

Flower die set from Amazon

Nail Art pieces (used the circles)


Glue gun

Elmer's glue stick

The flowers and colors got inspired by spring flowers I had found on a google search when I needed some ideas. You can do the same.

First, I used the eBosser to cut out all the different flower shapes with different cardstocks that I picked out.

Used the eBrush and Sharpies to color the flowers and leafs.

I had fun playing with the position of the flowers and placing them as desired. 
When placing the flowers near each other, I wanted to have them overlapping each other and made little cardstock cylinder pieces to give some flowers different heights. 
You'll be able to see what I mean in the photos below:

What do you think? 
This card can be used for Birthdays, Anniversary and even Mother's Day.
I hope you all liked my project and got inspired. Until next time!

DT: Happy Birthday Die - Three ways


This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. For this post I decided to use the March SCT sampler Happy Birthday die and three different sketches to make some cards for my dear friend, my Godson, and to have in case I need one.

The SCT samplers come with everything I need to make cards or scrapbook pages: e.g. printed 6x6 papers, enamel dots, stickers, die cuts, and much more.

I used three different sketches:

Sadly this challenge ended yesterday, but here is my take:

I used foam tape to rise up the sentiment.

and for the inside I used one of the provided die cuts as sentiment:

My take:

And finally:


My take:

The inside: I didn't go for a circle for the main element, instead, I used a tag to house my sentiment die cut.

The inside:

I used some inking to make the card elements for cohesiveness.
