A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY ...



 Hi
It is June already ... WOW this year has flown by .
Here is my inspiration project for this month at CraftDeeBowZ .I have challenges myself to make a card and NOT use a hand colored image.... I have used the most gorgeous papers for this one they are from Anna Marie Designs and are 7x7 in size . ..I used a stamp from my stash for the sentiment and stampin up certainly celery ink which is the perfect match for the papers.
The small roses and buds were from wild orchid and are pre made . The large flower with the gem centre i have made myself using white  Foamiran and altenew  ink to colour it .the gem in the centre is from wild orchid.

The flourishes are made using a memory box die. the larger leaves are cut from the same Anna Marie papers using a leaf die.
The mdf fern circle  around the sentiment came from crafteezee and i added 2 die cuts to enhace it using the same papers i have used throughout the project
The multi looped bow was created using my Craftdeebowz bow making tool..It makes stunning bows with minimal effort ... my kind of tool lol

Memories last forever



Hi all
It is time for another challenge to begin at Craft-deebowz.. The theme as always is Anything goes with a handmade bow .This month our sponsors for the challenge are Bugaboo Stamps  who will be giving the lucky winner 4 free images as the prize .
For  my Dt project i have made this sweet tent aperture card .


The digital image i have used is called  Ava and Deacon friends and you can find it HERE . I coloured them with promarkers and fussy cut them out so they could swing free in the aperture on the card



. I created the aperture using the large spellbinders circle die set. I added a fence across the front of the card using a die from joy crafts.The pretty flowers behind the fence is made using a die from tattered lace
The flowers are handmade using  heartfelt creations flower dies to which i added seed beads to the centres.


The sentiment is from a stamp set by Lisa Horten at creative expressions called steampunk sentiments . i just cut out words i needed from a larger sentiment in the set


The amazing bow was created using my Craft-deebowz.. bow making tool . It is my go to bow maker every time as it is so easy to use and gives me amazing multi and single looped bows every time .

Beautiful you gift bag and cards


Hi
It is Tracey here with my inspiration project  for this month for CraftDee BowZ.  This project was a challenge for me as i am not a huge fan of red and i struggle with clean and simple designs as usually i love to embellish my projects with a ton of flowers ,gems, ribbons etc.
The cards are 6x6 inch so a i had to make a really large tote bag for them to fit into. This makes a fabulous gift for someone who likes to send handmade cards .
I have used the Stampin up stamp set called Beautiful You for the cards and the sentiments also come in the set  .. I colored the images with promarkers and added a simple piece of spotted designer paper as a border down one side.





The flowers on the bag are Stampin up flower shop stamps and i used the coordinating punch to cut them out .
The cute little red bows and the pretty single looped  ombre bow have been created using my Craft-Dee Bowz bow maker tool  ...
