DT: Baby Boy Card

  



 Dear Scrappers,


This is my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a congratulations on your baby boy card.

I used the following materials and dies:

I cut the background strip from paper wishes printed paper (4), and stamped a "congratulations" tag on the same printed paper the inside the card sentiment (1), which I later die cut using the coordinating die from CTMH (2). Later, I cut the feet and the "baby boy" twice, once in card stock and once in printed paper using my SNAP machine. The baby boy sentiment had a congratulations sentiment inbetween baby and boy, which I cut out.
I added the background strip to the card base and paper pieced the feet and sentiment adding it to the card using 3D dots for more dimension. For the inside, I added one of the "baby" sentiments to the congratulations tag. Added some twine and glued it to the inside of the card.



This is a very easy, quick and CAS card.

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

DT: Lip Balm Holders for St. Valentine's Day

 



 Dear Scrappers,


This is my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a lip balm holders as gifts for my children's teachers for St. Valentine's day:



I used the following materials and dies:


First, I die cut all the holders using the Sizzix dies and used another die set from Sizzix for the embellishments and bookmark.

In short: I stamped the delicated mandala shapes using the CTMH stamps. Then, I laminated the delicated mandalas after stamping a sentiment in the back using the "We are good together" stamp set (I used the "You are Loved" stamp). Later I cut them out using their thin cut dies. I did the same with the tags and "smile" sentiment (I stamped my children's name in the back of the tag) for the other end of the bookmark:



I attached both sides with a foot of ribbon and tied them with knots:


I used my SNAP and Cut N' Boss to cut everything.

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

Enjoy the freezing days

DT: Medical Personal Appreciation Bookmarks

 


 Dear Scrappers,


This is my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a bunch of bookmarks to thank the nurses and medical personnel, who helped me with the health screenings at school.


Here are some closer pictures to show the different bookmarks I made:






Materials:


I used my SNAP to cut the cute little frontline heroes, I stamped before. I used leftover card stocks in white, black and blue to cutout the mats and the bookmarks bases. I stamped the sentiments on the mats, the heroes or cute designs I punched out colorful mats. Later, I added some colors with gel glitter pens. I assembled the bookmarks, fussy cutting the cute little patient bears, and added some twine at the end:


I stamped my name using Distress Oxides by TH in the back:


Here is how I displayed the bookmarks for the medical personell:

Here are some pictures of the details for each canvas:

2. a punched border/ horizontal strip- I used Martha Stuart punch around the page punches for snowflakes and ornaments. (lower right corner)

3. a fussy cut vertical strip, showing the rough part of the paper, which I distressed with metallic inks. (upper right corner)

4. two printed mats. Top one 5x7 in. with faux stitching around the border. Lower mat, a little bit bigger, with drie embossing and distressing with ink. (Left upper corner).

5. a cloth pin with wooden embellistment on top to pin a Christmas card or picture (from Dollar Tree, picture shown bellow). I added some glitter for more texture. (left lower corner).

6. Big Title: 
1st Canvas: glitter die cut sentiments (CTMH), digital image in a die cut frame (Tim Holtz die)

3rd. canvas: Stamped sentiment and thin cut (CTMH) and stamped menger image/ thin cut (CTMH) and tag (tattered lace die).
