Pretty in Peach

I love fairies, butterflies and pretty images and using glitter and embellishments on my cards! Today is my day to post on Craft-Dee BowZ where our challenge this month is ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW. I'm using this fairy image from Tiddly Inks.
I colored my image with Copics and ran across a sunflower charm in my stash that I colored with Copics and glued in her hair. I found some brown fluff in one of my craft drawers and added that to the middle of my colored sunflowers. The pink and white pearl swirl is from a craft show I attended in Mesa, AZ last year.
My bow is a quadruple looped bow and I could never have made this without my bow tool. I looped it twice around and then looped it twice more on the inside of my bow bars and held the two smaller loops while I tied it off. I would have needed at least 3 hands to make this bow but my little bow tool is so helpful and handy. If you like bows on your cards or projects, order this for yourself now!
Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo. The winner of this challenge will receive 4 images of the winner's choice! The team has made some adorable cards this month and I hope you'll take a look at them and be inspired! I hope you'll join us this month at Craft-Dee BowZ for our ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HAND MADE BOW challenge!

A little shabby chic card ...

Tracey here with this months inspiration project . I am a huge fan of anything girly and love to use a lot of embellishments on my projects. Here i have created a shabby chic card that you could use for many occasions by simply changing the sentiment.I have used die cuts that i had in a big box so effectively it has been made using scraps.
I have used a pre coloured image from Pion designs. I  added lilac ink and pink ink to the die cuts and layered them around the image until i was happy with the design . I added a banner ,some pearls ,a ribbon with roses on as a border [again a small scrap i had left from a previous project]The flowers are from wild orchid and i made a beautiful multi looped bow using my Craftdeebowz bow maker. It makes stunning bows every time with easeand little effort.

I hope you like my design and that you will join us in the August challenge at Craftdeebowz where anything goes with a handmade bow
Happy crafting

Witch with Cauldron

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

For my hosting project, I created this CAS design, using mostly dies.  The witch is from Impression Obsession and the tree was from my stash.  

  Here is a close up of the my double loop bow, that I made using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool.  I added the pumpkin button to the bow to give it a little more something something.

Here is what the Craft-Dee BowZ tool looks like.  You can order your very own tool here.

With Love

Hello everyone
Well, it's the first Tuesday and it's my turn to share a project with you today.

I am a lover for embossing folders and dies. So, when I spied an embossing folder that also cuts, well I knew I just had to have that. I made a card with my new folder and I just love the look it gave me. So, I just decided to use the card I made for my inspiration piece. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Here is a close-up of the bow
It's a double loop bow. 
And the CDB tool makes crafting this bow so easy.
