Happy birthday to my sis


Hi
Wow the months are flying by . I love this time of year it is my favorite season. I love all the colors when the leaves change ,so pretty.
This months inspiration card for  Craftdeebowz  is  the card i made for my sister who is actually  75 yrs young today. She adores butterflies so there had to be one on her card .


I used a beautiful postcard stamp with the butterfly on it from Joy crafts ,but i cut an extra butterfly out and added it for dimension.
The papers are from Crafters companion shabby chic collection.The flowers are from wild orchid.


The bow was formed using delicate organza ribbon and my Craftdeebowz bow maker ,you can get one for yourself and the details are in the left hand side bar




The sentiment is computer generated . i love the dimension this card has and the soft colors make it feel so feminine and pretty

Phil Martins Magical Meadow stamp





Hi
Here is a project i have made for In2craft DT  to show just one of the new Creative expressions Phil Martin stamps called Magical Meadow 
You will not find better prices than here at the  In2craft  facebook page /shop for all things creative expression,Xcut and more

I have kept it simple this time not too heavily embellished ,just let the oxides and beautiful stamps do the work.
The background was simply blended using 3 colours of  Tim Holtz oxide inks, tumbled glass,stormy sky and faded jeans.
The moon shape was created simply by putting a  circle in place  before inking.
The Magical meadow stamp was stamped across the bottom using stayzon and my Tim holtz  stamp platform. 
The fairy stamp is called spellbound and is from Lavinia stamps. I added some sparkle to her wings
The sentiment is from a woodware stamp set called Hand drawn sentiments

Shabby chic Christmas card



Hi
It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project. for CraftDeeBowZ.  Despite the sun shining i fancied making a christmas card so i do not have to rush my projects nearer to the festive period  i am going to get organised this year ... Honestly
I have used some lovel;y textures on this card . I used an MDF birdhouse which i crackled using the new creative expressions  white crackle paste.It gives delicate cracks when its dry .Just apply the paste and leave it to air dry . fab



I used hessian which i cut freehand into a heart shape, ripped papers from an old craftwork cards  Christmas paper  pad from years ago. some kraft card ,white gesso,a Sizzix wreath die,and a Sheena Douglass stamp for the sentiment stamped with gathered twig  oxide ink.
The flowers were handmade using a Marianne D die with a glittery stamen added.

The fabulous double ribbon bow and string bow were both formed using my CraftDeeBowZ BOW
MAKER .you can get one for yourself HERE it forms beautiful multi looped bows with ease every time
