My Daughters birthday card ...



Hi
It is time for my mid month inspiration project for the   CraftDeeBowZ  November challenge  where anything goes with a handmade bow. This card was designed around a beautiful piece of lace that i have had in my stash for years and i wanted to make something pretty with it for my daughters birthday. I have also used a topper that has sat lurking in my stash for some time.I distressed it with my Tim Holtz distress tool




I used a tonic die for the butterflies and a pink gem stamp for the sentiment It says "Daughter ,a little girl who grows into a friend"



The leaf spray die was from the works. The flowers are all  from wild orchid.

The delicate double looped bow was made using my CraftDeeBowZ bow maker

I have been a Busy Bee.....literally





Hi all 
I am a DT member for In2craft . They now stock the beautifully detailed Pink Ink stamps and when i saw them i just had to have the Bee stamp set. WOW the price was fabulous from In2craft shop firstly and the detail in these stamps is  awesome . I was inspired to make some gifts with them so sorry for all the pics but you need to see them close up.


This is the design on a bag for life .To make this bag i simply stamped the design on a piece of white card with Memento ink and colored it in with Promarkers . I then scanned it and printed it onto iron on printable transfer paper with my inkjet printer and ironed it onto the bag . the paper and bags are readily available online from photo paper direct. BE SURE TO FLIP ANY WORDS YOU PRINT OR THEY WILL BE BACK TO FRONT ON YOUR DESIGN

The key rings are simply wooden key ring blanks from the works which i painted with gold stardust paint then stamped the small bee stamp on top with Stayzon

The candles are made using a single piece of tissue paper stamped with memento ink  ,colored with Promarkers then i put the tissue paper onto the candle ,wrapped it with grease-proof paper so it was tightly on there with no wrinkles and heated it with my heat gun until it was stuck onto the semi melted candle wax. keep the heat gun moving so as not to melt the candle too much.


a siMple card just stamped in Memento ink and the bees were coloured with promarkers and i added glossy accents to their little bodies


The tag was easy too. just cut your tag shape. create a blended  colored background with mustard seed,abandoned coral and spiced marmalade distress oxide or ink and simply stamp your bee design over the top ..
