Give thanks

Welcome to my week to post on Craft-Dee BowZ and share a card with you.  When I think of autumn, I think of mums, sunflowers, pumpkins and sweaters. I saw this adorable little image by Elisabeth Bell and thought she'd be perfect for my card this week. 


I colored my image with Copics and used some pretty leaves, sunflowers and pearls for my embellishments. I added a bit of sparkle to the flowers in her hair, too, and had this awesome paper with sunflowers on it that worked out perfectly!

My bow is a triple looped and I used grossgrain ribbon and then glued a button tied with twine in the middle of the knot. This bow was so simple to make, even with all those loops, using my bow tool. It's the perfect little assistant that I keep within arm's reach at my craft table!  


Our sponsor this month is month is Bugaboo stamps who is giving the winner of our challenge four images of the winner's choice!

                                    

Our Team here at Craft-Dee BowZ have made some awesome projects using Bugaboo stamps, so please visit us and we hope you'll join us this month for our ANYTHING GOES challenge!

                                                                          Thanks for stopping by!

Believe in the magic of christmas

 


Hi 

It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project .I have made this cute card using a digital Image from Kenny K . The image is called Mistletoe .I coloured her using alcohol markers. The papers  are by Kaisercraft . I made a handmade Foamiran Poinsetta using a die from Marianne D Designs .




The double looped  bow was made using my Craft-DeeBowz  bow maker and thin organza ribbon and i added a gem centre to finish the bow beautifully. I also added silver berries and some glitter to the image ,




I hope you will join us in the challenge with your projects 
Happy Crafting

Welcome Fall

 Hello there, Kathy here and it is my turn to host for the month of November.

For my hosting project, I created this cute card using the front door dies from Spellbinder Dies.  I cut out all of the pieces for the front door.  Then I used some Tim Holtz Grit paste and a brick stencil to create the front of the house.  After I created this piece I then started building the front door.  Then I created a Fall Wreath, placed the card front onto an A2 size card base and my Welcome Fall card was almost finished.


To complete my card I made a tiny bow using my Craft-Dee-BowZ tool and adhered it to the wreath. 

I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is Bugaboo Stamps.  


She has some adorable images so please pay her a visit, I'm sure you will find something in her shop that you will enjoy.  Up next is Tracey.

Until next time,
Kathy

To swim as free as a mermaid

Are there days you'd just like to be a mermaid? I love the ocean and I'm a fan of mermaid stamps. If I could wish to come back as something after I die, I think I'd pick a mermaid. This image is from Sherri Baldy and I fell in love with her the minute I saw her. 


It's the fourth Tuesday of the month, so it's my turn to post here for Craft-Dee BowZ.  Each week a different team member gets to post a card or project of their choice. So here I am with my card. 


I colored my image with Copics and used clear glitter on the seashells across the bottom and then colored the glitter with my markers. They still have the glittery look without the mess of using numerous colors of glitter. 


I love my bow tool. I don't think I make many cards anymore that don't have ribbon or lace on them and my little bow tool helps me make the perfect bows. You can see my bow below and how pretty it turned out. It's a great embellishment on this card and I do love embellishments!  I can honestly say that a CAS card is a tremendous challenge for me and I'm more comfortable adding stuff to a card than keeping it clean and simple. 


Here's what my little bow tool looks like...pretty simple to use and it hangs on a nail right next to me!


Our sponsor this month is Gerda Steiner Designs and the winner of this challenge gets to pick two images from this fantastic on-line store.                                                             
You've got two more days to enter our ANYTHING GOES challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ!

                                                                    Thanks for stopping by!
