It's Spring!

Hello, it's my week to post on Craft-Dee BowZ!  I am loving living in Kentucky and spring has arrived and with it, there are flowers all over and everything is so nice and green again!  Our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ is ANYTHING GOES so quickly post your card since time is running out.

The image I used today is from Elisabeth Bell named Tummy Time. I made a fairly simple card and took out the sewing machine for this one.


I colored my image with Copics and added just a little sentiment.


My bow is triple looped and was so simple to make with my bow tool. I've always loved ribbons and bows and my bow tool simplifies making my bows without wasting any ribbon!




Our sponsor is Cute As A Button and the prize this month is 2 single images of the winner's choice! Have you looked at the images at Cute As A Button?  I'm sure you'll find many images that you love and it will be hard to pick just 2!

I hope you'll join us for our ANYTHING GOES challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ and I look forward to seeing your creations!

                                                                              Thanks for stopping by!

Cherish

Hello .
It is time for my mid month inspiration project ..I have just bought a stunning paper pad and mould set from prima called the Midnight garden so i had to make a project using it. Here i have made a card that could be used for Anniversary/Weddings/valentine . i used papers and  ephemera tags to create a simple design in the bottom corner

The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed  with platinum wow  powder onto vellum which i then tore and wrapped around the card




I made a  flower from the prima mould and air dry paperclay , i also made a pretty Foamiran flower and 2  rolled roses from the paper pad to match ....



The bow was made using my trusty Craftdeebowz bow maker
I hope you like my card and that you join us in the challenge
Stay safe
Happy crafting

Happy Easter!

Good morning! It's my week to post on Craft-Dee BowZ and I'd like to share an Easter card that I made with you. The image is from Crafty Sentiments. Our challenge is closing in just 2 days and it's ANYTHING GOES, so please get your entries posted quickly!


After I made this card, I realized the image wasn't of bunnies but was of dogs. As far as I'm concerned, they still look like bunnies to me. I added sequins and a bit of glitter to this card and happy spring papers!


I love the green bow I made with my Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool. It's a double looped gross grain ribbon and it came out perfect using my Bow Tool. Do you have one yet? They're a wonderful tool to add to your crafting supplies! They're small, lightweight and make all the different sizes I've ever needed!

Our sponsor this month is Fred She Said and the prize for the April top winner is a $10 gift certificate to their store! Have you looked at their images

Just For You

Welcome to the first Tuesday of April.


Barbara here, and seems like it was just yesterday 
I was posting the March First Tuesday post. 
Time has flown for me.


I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy 
during these extremely trying times.
So, with that in mind, 
let's shut out the troubled world for a few minutes.

Since we are 3 weeks into spring 
and warmer weather has arrived here in my neck of the woods, 
I decided to use a flower stamp I just received from Rubbernecker.

Here is my card.
Click here  to go to my blog for more info about my card 
and what I used to make it.

My bow - I used Hug Snug Seam Binding (my fav) 
and of course, the Craft-Dee BowZ  bow making tool.
The bow for this card is a 3 loop bow .

Here is a closer view of the bow.
 Do you have your CDB tool yet?? No???
This tool is smaller, easy to use, travels well and it's easy to store.
It will make bows from 1" to 4 1/2"


You can order yours by clicking on the Buy Now button 
here on the left sidebar.

Just a reminder - 
The April Craft-Dee BowZ challenge has started and runs thru April 29.
The theme is always - Anything Goes
You could be the next winner,
We are looking forward to your submission.

That's it for now
Stop back next Tuesday to see what Kathy has come up with
for her Inspiration Tuesday project.

Have a great week and stay safe everybody!!

Look Out Cinderella!

Hello, it's my Tuesday to post on Craft-Dee BowZ and I'm sharing this card with you. I love this shoe from Crafter's Companion stamps...probably because I've had three foot surgeries and not only never have, but never will, wear shoes like this. Plus the little panda is adorable!


This rubber stamp is a great size and so you can put it in perspective, this card is 6x6. I've had the stripes and polka dot papers for so long that I'm surprised they're not faded.


I colored this with Copics and these embellishment "dots" are actually flat backed painted metal and already had adhesive on the back of each one in the package! I picked them up at JoAnn's.


I used clear ink and white embossing powder for the sentiment and my flowers are from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. I added a little glue on the edges of the flowers and then sprinkled some glitter.

My bow is made with grosgrain patterned ribbon and I made it using my Bow Tool. The grosgrain ribbon is heavier than silks and using my Bow Tool made it simple to make such a pretty bow!  I had used a pink button for the center of the polka dot bow, and didn't like it, so I used chunky black embossing powder and covered the pink button. The shoe charm is from my extensive collection of charms and I've been told it is a replicate of Cinderella's. Just kidding.

The sponsor this month is Cute As A Button and the winner of our challenge gets 2 single black and white images of the winner's choice!

Our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ has just one more week to go, and I hope you'll join us!

                                                                               Thanks for stopping by,
