Hello bloggers

It's Tuesday and that means its time for my DT inspiration post for Craft-Dee BowZ.

 As I was preparing a new project for you, I was rummaging around for some embellishments. 
You know it's great to plow thru all the stuff we have and don't use very often. 

Yep, Halloween is a great example of that. Well I ran across some cool Halloween embellies so I decided to make a Halloween card. 

Some of the things I used on this card,
I have no clue where they came from, but they are great on a card.

Here is a closer look at my bow.

Check out that witch hanging off the bow.

My bow was made using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool.
Makes bow making easy and fast. No fumbling

Here is a closer view of those embellishments I dug up.

That spider web (Impression Obsession) - I stamped it then embossed with white EP

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project. 
Hope you will link a project in the Craft-Dee BowZ monthly challenge, already underway. 
Don’t forget the theme every month is always Anything Goes with a Handmade bow.  

Also on each Tuesday of the month, a different designer posts on the Craft-Dee BowZ blog to inspire you! Stop by there next Tuesday for more inspiration.

Reindeer Globe

Hello Everyone,

Do you believe it, its the beginning of a new month. 
It's September 1 and there's a new challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ

The theme is always Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow.
The challenge will be open til Midnight September 29. 
The sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps
Challenge winner will receive 4 Bugaboo digital images

Let me share with you my creation. 
I used a digital image from Bugaboo -  Reindeer Globe

I used some holographic paper on the globe base 
and the large snowflake behind the bow and the globe.
I also added punched white snowflakes. 

The bow I made is a triple loop bow 
and I added a snowflake brad  on the knot in the center.
You can see some of that holographic paper I used on the large snowflake under the bow.
And holographic paper is a devil to photograph - So sorry.

To make my bow,
I used my Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker tool 
because it makes it so easy to make a bow.
 You can order one here

By The Way - If you haven't visited Craft-Dee BowZ yet, 
you might want to go over and take a peek, 
you'll find more inspiration from the other DT members.

Well are you getting in the mode to make Christmas cards?
I am seeing more and more Christmas cards on other blogs, challenges and Pinterest.
I hope you get some inspiration from my card today

I am submitting my card to the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today and I will be back next Tuesday for another CDB post. Hope to see you then.

This Rose is for You

Hi Everyone
Even though it's the last Tuesday of the month and I am popping in with another inspiration card to delight your crafting senses.  LOL

Just a reminder,  Friday is September 1, and that means that Craft-Dee BowZ will be starting the next monthly challenge.

Please stop by then to check out the winners of the current challenge and to see the inspiration projects made by our talented designers for you for September.

OK let me share my card for August.

I started with a 6"X6" card base. Next I added a pink holographic piece cut to 5 3/4" X 5 3/4" and layered that on top of the card base.

Next I cut a pink piece 5 1/2" X 5 1/2". I added a punched area on the left using a Martha Stewart using a Punch all over the Page. I added another border on the right, using a white CS strip and using that same punch. I attached my bow thru some of the lattice openings on the left side.

I have been playing around with my Mini Minc Machine and I had this cool Rose w/ leaves outline. Well I couldn't get it to foil. But I have a pen that has liquid toner in it so I covered the rose and the leaves using that, added the pink foil to the rose and the green foil to the leaves and ran it thru the Minc and it worked great.

Next I added pink CS to the back of the rose and some green CS to the back of the leaves and popped it up on the front of the card.

Last but not least I made some handmade flowers for the bottom right corner area and used 2 leaf punches to add the greenery to my handmade flowers.

Thanks for stopping in today. You still have a day or so to enter the August Challenge, you could be the winner!!

Otherwise I hope you will be back Friday to see what's up for September.

I am submitting this card in the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing you again on Friday.
