I Heart You

Hello everyone 
Welcome to my blog and do you believe it's the last Saturday of the month.

A few weeks ago I showed a card showcasing some crocheted heart lace. If you missed that post, you can check it out here. Well, I had some of that pretty pink crocheted lace left over and decided to make another card.

So here is another card for your viewing pleasure. I know I know, Valentines Day is over, but this card would make a great sweet birthday card or an I Love You card. 

I was wondering what this card would look like, I first thought of a Tic-Tac-Toe design, however, I settled on a 4 corner design because the center was the perfect spot for my bow.

Let me share this card with you


I love the look of the warm pink and red along with the cool silver. This is a 6X6 card and I really like this size. It gives you a nice sized pallet to work with. As I assembled this card I placed the hearts in the corners and decided the bow would look great in the center of the card. That left a spot at the top center that turned out to be perfect for the sentiment. 

The bow - This started out as a triple loop bow and that ribbon is a sheer (my fav) with a satin border. I had a small pink bow with stars, already made and sitting, waiting to be added to a card. This fit perfectly in the center of the main bow. So after stacking the bows together, I attached the bow to the center of the card. I fastened it to a ribbon I had stretched across the front of the card. I used my CDB tool to make both bows.


The Craft-Dee BowZ tool is small, portable, easy to store, easy to transport, easy to use. Are you more of a visual learner?? Me too. There are videos on YouTube that will walk you through the steps to make bows.
You can order one on the Craft-Dee BowZ blog here.

Believe it or not, I still have 1 more heart from that strip of crocheted hearts. So you may see one more card with that last heart I have.

I am submitting my card to the following challenges:

Birthday Cake

Welcome to Wednesday!!!
                         Happy Valentines Day!!!

Today over at Crafty Creations Challenges is the start of challenge #360.

The theme is always Anything Goes
The  sponsor is Bugaboo 


The prize is 4 digital images.
Hope you join in the fun and submit a project
You could be the next winner

I picked this image to use for this post before I realized it would go live on Valentine's Day

But since we all have many celebrations throughout the year
this is a perfect image for celebrations in general.




Since the digital image had a balloon on it I decided to add additional die cut balloons.  

Usually, I try my best to eliminate any glare on the card but this pic shows the 
 Nuvo Crystal Glaze I used on the balloon, the red dots, and the green icing in the digital image.


This is such a fun image and I love it. 
It's perfect  for a birthday, anniversary, graduation or any other celebration

I am submitting my card to the following challenges:




I hope you’ve enjoyed my project. Hope you will link a project in the Crafty Creations Challenge. Don’t forget, the theme is always Anything Goes.

Hello

Hello everyone
I thought I'd pop in and share a new card with you. This month at Craft-Dee BowZ the sponsor is Bugaboo.  I saw this teacup with the flowers in it and had to have it!!! (Teacup Flowers 2)

The teacup image was a Friday freebie at Bugaboo back in November and I thought it was adorable

I got an idea for this card based on a card I saw a while back. 

It was a stack of teacups with flowers in the top cup.

Here is how I achieved this look:
  • I printed out a teacup with the flowers.
  • for the other 3 teacups, I cut away the flowers and reversed the image and cut those out as well. 
  • Next, I stacked the empty cups and added the teacup with flowers to the top spot. 
  • Colored the flowers with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers and attached them to an oval shape cut from a die. 
  • Used some pumpkin colored paper with white dots as the background. 
  • I added a fluffy bow and a die cut hello and the card was finished.



Here is a closer view of my bow on the card.

I used sheer ribbon. IMHO it's the best ribbon to use to make a bow. 
 I used my Craft-Dee DowZ tool to make this bow and it's a triple loop bow.
