Summer ......

It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project for the July challenge .I have not made a fun dome shaped card in a while so i thought i would make one for you today. I love the dimension you have to make a box to send it in !

I have used a tonic die set to create the lattice on the dome.

The papers,pink card ,green card  and sentiment  are  all from The paper boutique and are called butterfly medley..The bow was created using my CraftdeeBowz bow maker.which makes fabulous bows with ease every time.The butterflies are made using a die from a magazine i have had for a long time. I just matted them on green card and cut around them

I hope you like my project and it inspires you to join us in the July challenge with your own creations.
Happy Crafting

Happy Birthday Ellamae

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

For my hosting project, I created this layered card design, using an image from Mo;s Digital Pencil.  I created this card for a very dear friend of mine who is like an Aunt to me.  

Here is the card as a whole.

 Here is a close up of the image that I colored using my copic markers.

 And here is a close up of the bow, that I made using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool.

I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is Pattie's Creations.  

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,

You're Special

Hello..... Hello..... Hello
Welcome  to the first Craft-Dee BowZ inspiration Tuesday for July

Barbara here with some cool news.........................................

Before I get to my inspiration card, I'd like to give you some great news, Submissions for July, August and September, in the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge DO NOT need to have a bow. How cool is that. We know that mailing a card with a bow is almost impossible so we thought we'd give you all a break. No bows needed on your submissions from now til October 1. So get your cards submitted and don't worry about a bow for the time being.

Since its the first Tuesday it's my turn to share a creation with you.

I decided to use an old stamp or two and a new die set.

Here is the inside sentiment

Let's check out the bow.

I know so many people who say they couldn't make a bow
if their life depended on it.
Are you bow challenged?? 
We can change that for you.
The Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker tool will solve that problem.

This is a great little tool
Yep it's small and that makes it portable. 
Takes up little space for storing it.
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 card for you this week.
Hope you will take a minute to check it out

Don't forget we have a challenge going on all month. 
No bow needed on your submission this month
 and the theme is Anything Goes

Stop back next Tuesday for another Inspiration Tuesday Project
