Happy Birthday card for Craft-Dee Bowz inspiration post




Hi all Tracy here ...
It is time for my inspiration post for January .I wanted to make an elegant clean card for a change ,my cards usually have oodles of embellishments on them and it was nice to do something a little different . I used my new sentiment and border stamps  from Phil Martin at creative expressions. I used a blue distress ink [Broken china] to stamp with to match the pretty ribbons from this months MPP pack from Donna. The flowers are made using the Arianna blooms heartfelt creations stamp and die set which I stamped using the same ink .
I also used Sue Wilsons pierced square dies to create the frame around the sentiment and matched some blue cardstock I had from create and craft UK .
The stunning bow was created using my trusty Craft-dee Bowz bow maker., it is my go to bow making tool .It makes perfect bows every time with no effort at all. I added a gem centre to the bow to make it sparkle.

Candle sets



Hi
It is time for my  DT projects for the  December  Challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ . The theme for the challenge is as always anything goes with a handmade bow. The DT had to show a box or bag to inspire you all this month so I created the inexpensive cute candle and boxes ,Ideal for teachers gifts.
I used a spellbinder die set to create the large panels on the candles. The papers are Phil Martins Creative expressions snowflake papers. The snowflakes are made using a die set from sue Wilson. The tags were cut by using a sizzix tag die. The stunning bows are created by using my trusty Craft-
Dee BowZ  bow maker.It makes perfect bows/tassles and more  every time without any fuss ,so quick and  it is so easy to use you can read all about it here Craft-Dee BowZ .
