My Inspiration post for Craft-dee bowz challenge



Hi all
It is Tracey here with my inspiration post for this month. The sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps


 They are offering the lucky winner 4 images as the prize
I have used my all time favourite digi  image from Tiddly Inks for my project this month. I hand cut the card shape using a dutch doobadoo template .It was nice to do a different shaped card for a change . I used a spellbinders die for the frame around the image which I enhanced with some faux stitching using a sakura gel pen. The  butterflies are made with dies from tonic.
 The flowers are from wild orchid. .The flousishes are  dies from noor designs. The bow was created using my Craft-Dee BowZ maker and you can find out how to get your own from HERE .

Challenge time at Craft-Dee BowZ .





 Hi all
It is time for a new challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ . The theme as always is "Anything with a handmade bow " .. The sponsor this time is the fab Bugaboo Stamps

 So here is Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was six years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
I have used the gorgeous image called Pretty Flower Girl and you can find her HERE. I coloured her with spectrum noir illustrator pens. The flowers and diamante gem I added for the centre of the flower are from wild orchid. The card blank was created using the tonic swirling frame die set. The gorgeous bow was created using my Bow maker from Craft-Dee BowZ . It is my go to bow tool as it is so easy to produce stunning bows, tassles and much more every time.






I also used a stamp from Trimcraft for the sentiment.

Challenge time at Craft-Dee BowZ



 
 
 
Hi all
It is time for another challenge at   Craft-Deebowz.. The theme as always is "ANYTHING  GOES WITH A HANDMADE BOW". This month our fab sponsor is Beccy's Place.
 
The lucky winner will receive one set of digital images as their prize.For my DT project I made the card above using Beccy's "Thinking of you set " you can find it HERE. I coloured the image with spectrum noir illustrator pens. I used digital papers from Bearly Mine. The corners were created using a spellbinder corner die . The beautiful flowers were handmade using the sunflower  stamp and die set from hweartfelt creations which I coloured using Tim Holtz distress inks .The centres are dazzlers from creative expressions which I coloured using my illustrator pens to match the flowers.
The  gorgeous full double looped bow was made using my ribbon from the MPPpack I received from Donna and of course my trusty Craft-Dee Bowz bow maker which you can find HERE . It creates stunning single and multi looped bows every time so easily ... check it out !
