a birthday wish

How's your day going today!!!

Barbara here with a card for a birthday celebration. I used mainly scraps for this card and I have way too many scraps. I seem to save lots of bits of papers/card stock so I have a lot of different designs and colors to choose from. LOL  So if you fall into that category, then this card might be right up your alley.

I saw a card on Pinterest that is similar to this design, so it was my inspiration.

Also, the only stamping on this card is the sentiment. I wanted to keep this card kind of simple.

I left a bit of extra room at the bottom of the card for my bow to be placed.

Let me share my card with you.

I have additional information on my blog pertaining to my card. Hope you will stop over.

My bow - it's an easy stacked bow. 2 single loop bows stacked on top of each other.

Here is a closer view.

I used a pretty pink sheer ribbon. Sheer ribbon is my favorite ribbon to use. Easy to work with and you will get really tight knots. 

Need an easy to use bow maker??
Craft-Dee BowZ has you covered.
Its small, easy to use, lightweight and portable.
Order yours over on the left sidebar.

This is the last inspiration card for May. 
The June challenge will be starting Friday, June 1.
Our challenges are monthly 
The theme is always - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow.

Stop back Friday for the June inspiration projects using digi's from our June sponsor.

Spring Helper

It's my Tuesday to post at Craft-Dee BowZ and I got a new die that I just had to use. It made for a rather large sized card, but I had fun making this very girly card!  I used an image from Elisabeth Bell called Honey Little Spring Helper.
I used my new die cuts, pretty flowers, tag, punches and gorgeous ribbon! I love the color theme turquoise and purple, too. I colored my image with my Copics.
I made a triple looped bow and added this pretty button in the center.  I used my bow tool to make this bow and it came out with perfect, uniformed sized loops. Making bows is so easy with my bow tool!
Have you had a chance to follow Craft-Dee BowZ and see the pretty creations from the team members posted each Tuesday?  If you have a chance, please stop by here and take a look! The winner of this month's challenge will receive 3 images e-mailed directly from Patricia of Kinda' Cute. I hope you'll join us for our ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW challenge!

Beautiful you gift bag and cards

It is Tracey here with my inspiration project  for this month . 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 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  ...

I hope you like my project and that it inspires you to create and join us in this months challenge where Anything goes with a handmade bow.
Happy crafting

My Heart Belongs to You

Hello and Kathy here, it's my Tuesday to post for some inspiration.  

I bring to you today this cute little rubber stamp from La-La Land Crafts.  It is titled My Heart Belongs to You.

After stamping her onto my Neenah Solar White 80# card stock, I colored her with my Copic markers in various shades of purples, pinks and my usual skin tones.

Then I created one of the best 3 loop bows I've ever created.  Of course it was a lot easier using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool from Craft-Dee BowZ.

I hope I have inspired you and we really hope you will come along and play with us during this month's Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow Challenge.  We look forward in seeing your creations.

Remember if you have not picked up your Craft-Dee BowZ tool, do so.  You won't regret it.
