Stephanie and Tully!

 Hello! Today is my day to post a card for Craft-Dee BowZ and I'm using this adorable image from High Hopes called Heidi & Mattie. This card was made for my daughter who has a large dog that is part Irish Wolfhound and the most gentle dog I've ever met. This card is dedicated to Tully Carlo. 

I colored my image with Copics and gave Heidi red hair since my daughter, Stephanie, has red hair. Now, I did a little artistic creativeness with Mattie. Although Tully is very dark, almost black, I decided to use grays instead so the details would show. He is getting older now and has quite a bit of gray in his coat, but not as gray as this. 

Here's a close-up of the image. I added a touch of glitter to the heart on Heidi's overalls and a touch of gold metallic to Mattie's tag.

Using my bow tool, I tied this very pretty lacy bow. I added a dog bone to the center and tied another bow by threading it through the knot on my lacy bow. 

My bow tool is simple to use and it hangs on a hook right on my work table. It makes all sizes of bows and I waste no additional ribbon since every bow comes out perfect! 

The challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ is ANYTHING GOES this month and our sponsor is Cute As A Button.  The prize donated is two black and white images of your choice!

There's one more week to upload your cards for the challenge, and I hope you'll join us!

                                                                   Thanks for stopping by!

Love U Always

 


Hi 

Tracey here with this my mid month inspiration project . I have used a Mo manning digital image and coloured it with alcohol markers . The papers are by Trimcraft First Edition and are called Perfect Moments. The word dies are from Fuzzy Lemon  (love u) and Tonic Studios (always). The flowers are handmade using matching coloured card and papers.

I used my Craftdeebowz bow maker to make the multi loooped bow for my project using organza ribbon





I hope you like my project and that it inspires you to join us in the fun challenge this month 

Happy Crafting

Tracey

Miss You - Washi Tape Card

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

For my hosting project, I created a different type of card design.  I have not made a card using Washi Tape as the background in a very long time, so I felt the urge to do so.  It is quick, easy and fun.  I gathered a bunch of washi tape with hints of pink and decided that I wanted to create a "Missing You" card.  So off I went taping washi tape all over the front of a 5.75 x 5.75 piece of card stock.  Then I adhered this piece onto my 6 x 6 card base.  Here is what I came up with.



I made the bow using my Craft-Dee-BowZ tool. I know the bow is a bit hard to see in the top photo, so here is a close-up.


I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is Cute As A Button.  



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

What makes you happy?

Hello and it's time for me to post my inspiration for the week at Craft-Dee BowZ!  Today I chose an image from Sassy Cheryl. There's four of us on the team here at Craft-Dee BowZ and each of us gets a week to be featured. I hope you check back every Tuesday to see the new creations on the CDB Blog!


I colored my image with Copics and added a few polka dots to her dress to match her bow. I added this tiny pearl earring and some Ranger Glossy Accents to her patent leather shoes. I found these flower sequins at a craft store a while back and added just 3 of them as well as 3 pretty pearls. For reference, my card is 6"x 6".



My flowers are all made out of ribbon and the leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The pretty acrylic flower is from my stash.  

                          

My bow is a little different this week. I always make double looped and triple looped bows. But I wanted you to see how perfect the bow tool can make even the simplest of bows, a single loop bow made out of grosgrain ribbon. Size is not an issue with the bow tool and you can make small bows to large bows and single to multi-looped bows. I love adding ribbon and lace to my cards and just a small bow can make such a difference to a creation! Here's what my bow tool looks like. It's affordable and simple to use. 


Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo and the very generous prize is four images of the winner's choice!  Bugaboo has hundreds of images and I am sure you're going to find more than four that you'd like!

There's five more days left in our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ and I hope you'll join us. Remember that our challenge is ANYTHING GOES!

                                                                             Thanks for stopping by!
