Album for my Dear 99 Year Young Auntie.

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

For my hosting project, I created a small little album for my dear Aunt who just turned 99.  The inside is quite simple and the tags are actually  tied to the album.  It was created using 4 sheets of double sided 12x12 card stock.


 And here is a close up of the bow.





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


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

With Love

Hello everyone

Barbara here, and here is my Tuesday Inspiration project by way of Thursday.
 (Don't ask, it's been a crazy week)

Ya know, I think I'm stuck in a flower rut
Cause, here's my Tuesday inspiration 
and it's got flowers on it,
 of course


The image I used is from Power Poppy 
and its a Lady Slipper Orchard

The bow I chose to use on this card 
is really two single loop bows stacked on top of each other.
Here is a close up picture


These types of bows are easy to make and really look super.

Are you Bow challenged?? 
The Craft-Dee bow maker can solve that problem.


There are instructions that come with the tool 
and for those of you that like visuals, 
there are plenty of videos to walk you thru the how-to's.

Order yours today, just click on the Buy Now button on the left sidebar
You will love it!!!

Well that is my inspiration for you this week.
Hope you will take a minute to check it out

Stop back next Tuesday for another Inspiration Tuesday Project.

Remembering

Hello there!  Joy here with a patriotic card celebrating those that went before us.   I am so thankful for the armed forces and service personell in our country and will never be able to express my gratitude enough for their sacrifices. 

Today's card was made from Stamp On It's Vintage Hues Acetate images and I added glossy accents and fine irriedescent glitter behind it.   Once the glue dried I added Dries Clear Art glitter glue to the glitttered area and carefully adhered the acetate to white card stock to get that vibrant image to show off its glory!  I then made my beautiful bow using the Craft-dee Bowz Tool.  The card was very simple to make using both products, but it pulled a big punch.  It's not too late to join us for our May challenge where Cute As a Button Stamps is our generous sponsor.

Without furtherer ado!!
For more information about my card please visit Joyfully Stamps
Have a great day! Hugs, Joy

Dance, Dance, Dance and Dance some more...

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

For my hosting project, I created this CAS design, using Happy Dance from the Squidgy Collection over at Stampingbella. The theme for this card is dancing in honor of the many May Dance Recitals currently taking place. 


Here is a close up of the image that I colored using my Copic markers. After coloring the image, I placed her on an Action Wobble so that she can freely dance.


And here is a close up of the bow, that I made using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool. You can create large and fluffy to small and tiny bows with this easy to use tool.

Happy Birthday

Hello Everyone

Barbara here and it's the last Tuesday of April and I thought I'd scoot in and share my latest Happy Birthday card. This just happens to be the last Tuesday inspiration project for April. This is a colored digi image that I printed on printable acetate. Yep you heard me right, I printed it on acetate.

Visit my blog for more of the details on this card.



And my bow is a triple loop bow and I used the Craft-Dee BowZ tool to make it. It's the best bow making tool going. Perfect for anyone who is a challenged bow maker.
Are you bow challenged?? You really should have one of these Craft-Dee BowZ tools.
I love mine and use it all the time.
It's available here on the Craft-Dee BowZ website. 
Look on the left sidebar to place your order

Hope this card inspires you.

Just a reminder that tomorrow is May 1 
That means it's the beginning of the next monthly challenge.

Treasure Your Memories.


Hi Its Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project .Sometimes you just want to do  something a little bit more special with your card .so ... I took a very plain boring grey piece of backing paper and added texture paste through a diamond shaped stencil. I splashed it with Lindy's stamp gang inks in orange ,grey and brown and dried it all off with a heat gun . I then stamped using a clear Versamark ink pad and  a script stamp from Indigoblu randomly over the paper and heat embossed it with a little gold WOW  embossing powder .Then i distressed the edges .


I painted a chipboard frame with white acrylic paint when it was dry i glued a vintage image behind the frame .


i took a clock face i had made from air dried clay and splashed some lindy's sprays on it so it would match the project colors. and made a pretty cabuchon  using a piece of the paper i had created and a cabuchon blank and glass dome.
I made some foamiran flowers .these were made using ivory foamiran coloured with pastel chalks.

I added pearls, a bow made with string and my CraftDeebowz bow maker, some tonic flourishes  and some Tim Holtz  ideaology words to finish it all off.
I hope you like my project and that you will come and join us us in the challenge where anything goes with a handmade bow.
Happy Crafting

Eggstra Sweet Easter

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

For my hosting project, I used some images from Simon Says Stamp.  This is part of a Special Edition Card Kit, however the stamps and supplies are available individually at Simon Says.  The stamp set that is used is called:  Eggstra Sweet Easter.  I stamped the image on a piece of Neenah cut to 4.5" x 3.25".  Colored it with various copic markers, including the background.  




Then I layered a piece of ribbon on top of the colored piece and adhered it to a piece of Lawn Fawn patterned paper to create an A2 size card.  I then created a handmade bow using my handy bow tool from Craft-Dee BowZ.

Here is a photo of the bow that I created with my Craft-Dee BowZ tool.





I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in on all the fun during this challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is LeAnn's World101.

She has some really 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
