A little paper weaving ....

It is Tracey here with this months project to inspire you .. I have decided to revisit some of my forgotten dies and stamps for this card . I have used the Sue wilson weaving dies t create a pretty background to add a simple stamped and heat embossed sentiment onto . I love this look of card it is very clean and elegant i think ...

The pretty flower was handmade using Sue Wilsons classic rose die to which i added the Sue wilson fern dies and a couple of handmade pins ..and of course a bow made using my Craftdeebows bow maker 

The frame around the woven panel is also a Sue Wilson die set from a while ago . It is called noble rectangle die and has a pretty embossed edge to it.
It was put together using some foam pads for dimension

I hope you like my project and that you join me and the talented DT in this months challenge
Happy crafting

Happy Birthday Garnette

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

For my hosting project, I created this layered design card, using an image from Mo's Digital Pencil but not until in October, 2019.  I am a Pateron of Mo's Digital Pencil, when you become a pateron you a new image a month before it is released to the public.  This is a birthday card for my oldest great niece who is in love with mermaids.  This image just happened to come out just in time.  

 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 Fred She Said.

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,

Boo to You

Welcome back to the first Tuesday Inspiration project of September

WOW!!!  Fall is right around the corner and with that in mind, 
I decided to share a pumpkin card with you all today

Pumpkins are so "fall" aren't they

This design came to me when I was shopping for home goods. Saw a framed pumpkin and this is the card I came up with after seeing that piece of framed artwork.

I added a black bow in the upper corner using a black sheer ribbon. 
This bow is a triple loop bow and its the perfect size for my 5"X7" card. 

Need a tool that enables you to  make great bows every time?? 
We here at Craft-Dee BowZ  have just what you need. 

The tool is available here on the Craft-Dee BowZ site. 
Just look over at the left sidebar and look for the 
BUY NOW button. 
Written instructions come with the tool 
and there are You Tube videos available as well.

I have additional information about this card and I have another cute project over on my blog. 

Well that is it for now. Stop back next Tuesday for another Tuesday Inspiration project!!

Have a great week.
