Happy Birthday set



Hi .
It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project. for CraftdeeBowz 
I have made a pretty box and card combo using Creative Expressions dies for the flowers, for the  main decorative die , for the sentiment ,for the square frames and the embossing detail in the back is also a folder from Creative Expressions.. Sometimes just using die cuts is all you need to make a pretty card . The ribbon was formed into this pretty bow using my CraftDee Bowz bow maker which makes beautiful single or multi looped bows  or tassells every time with no fuss at all.You can get one for yourselves from  CraftdeeBowz

Gnomes.....





Hi all
Here is my  project for  the CrafDeeBowz August challenge where  the theme Anything goes ...
The sponsor this month is Patties Creations.The lucky winner will receive  3 digital images all of which can be found here,
I chose the Party gnomes image you can find it HERE .  i decided to keep it  simple and i have  made a distress ink background which i splattered with water  then blotted with tissue to remove some ink ... I then stamped a tree around the outside and added the 3 gnomes that had been fussy cut out and coloured with spectrum noir trimarkers.and sparkle pens



To finish i added some twine and a wooden button and a cute small double looped bow which was made using my trusty Craftdeebowz bow making tool which makes perfect single and multi looped bows every time with ease ...

Summer is natures way...



Hi
It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project for the  CraftdeeBowz July challenge .I have not made a fun dome shaped card in a while so i thought i would make one for you today. I love the dimension you have to make a box to send it in !

I have used a tonic die set to create the lattice on the dome.



The papers,pink card ,green card  and sentiment  are  all from The paper boutique and are called butterfly medley..The bow was created using my CraftdeeBowz  bow maker.which makes fabulous bows with ease every time.The butterflies are made using a die from a magazine i have had for a long time. I just matted them on green card and cut around them
