Peace!

Hello, and welcome to the September challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ!  Our challenge this month for you is ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW.  I used this adorable hippy image from Saturated Canary that I purchased in February of 2013 (my images are dated on my thumb drive of when I purchased them) and have had in storage on a thumb drive. Unfortunately, a vast number of never been used images are on my thumb drive!

 
I love the bright and cheerful colors of this card and my papers are from Doodlebug. This is my favorite layout because it gives me a chance to use two printed papers and by putting my image on the side, I can put my flowers, bow and sentiment on the other side, so that I feel it looks balanced. I love birthday cards that have a small sentiment on the front, too, and then a nice birthday saying inside.
 
My image is colored with Copics and I added some Wink of Stella on the flowers in her hair (but it doesn't show up in the photo).  That cute little butterfly is a punch by EK and I added some iridescent glitter but it photographed opaque looking while it really isn't!  The oval nested die set is by QuicKutz and the larger pink die cut around the image is by Spellbinders.  My pearls and jewels are from Queen & Co (my fav store for sparklies).  The large pink and turquoise daisy jewel in the corner is one from a package given to me by Donna at Craft-Dee BowZ and was a perfect fit with this card.
 
 
 
The bow was made on my Craft-Dee BowZ tool and is double looped. The metal charms were silver and I colored them with Copics. Thanks, Donna at Craft-Dee BowZ, for the pink jeweled flowers, the ribbon and charms!  My daisies are from Wild Orchid and the leaf tucked among them is a die by Marianne.
 
 
The Team at Craft-Dee BowZ have created fabulous projects to inspire you this September. I hope you'll stop by the blog and see their creations and join us for our month long challenge of ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW!

Watercoloring

Today I am the Guest Designer for The Crazy Challenge, Challenge 205, which is WATERCOLOR. I used this beautiful digital image from Sami Stamps for my card.


This is my first attempt with my new Zig Clean Watercolor Pens. They were fun to use and I'm looking forward to improving my skills with them. I added a touch of glitter to each of the purple flowers in her hair.

I used a Spellbinders die around my image and dressed it up with pearls from Queen & Co. The butterfly is a die by Elizabeth Design, the pearl swirl is by Prima, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts (and I added a touch of gold to them), the leaf among the flowers is a punch/embossing set by Nellie Snellen, and that's an antique metal button in the middle of my hand died seam binding that I colored myself with ink refills. My sentiment is stamped on purple print paper and then glued to the back of an acetate tag and the two laces are from my collection.

Thanks so much to Em and Ellen for the invitation and helping me get my card on their post today. I'm honored to have been invited to be their Guest Designer for the past two challenges and thanks, too, to the Design Team and their nice comments on my cards!

The Design Team has created fabulous projects to inspire you and I hope you'll visit The Crazy Challenge and participate in the WATERCOLOR challenge!

Where's my fairy godmother?

Today begins a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and this time the topic is COME FLY WITH ME (something that can fly on your image). Now that's pretty easy considering it can be just about anything with wings!  As I was thinking about the topic, I realized that one of the images at The Paper Shelter is called My Wish List and I thought she'd be perfect for this challenge and to be a birthday card since she's holding a "wish list" and I had the birthday sentiment "Make a Wish". Now, I don't know about you, but as I made this card, took photos of it, and posted it, I find myself singing the songs from Rogers & Hammerstein's musical "Cinderella". I love that musical so much...the one with Leslie Ann Warren and Stuart Damon and looked forward to seeing it on television every year. I like it so much that I recently bought this 1965 DVD!


I used my Magnolia swirl die and cut the pink and blue swirls out of paint chips. I used a Martha Stewart border bunch and a punch on the sentiment from EK. I colored my background with pink and blue Pebbles Pearlescent chalk using a white pompom.  My flowers are from Wild Orchid and byThita.  On my fairy I used Susie Sparkle Crystal Rainbow glitter on her wings, Cotton Candy Stickles on her petticoat, and Gold Glitter Ritz on her crown. She even has a dot of Glossy Accents on her eyeglass lenses! I added a touch of Star Dust glitter on the flowers.

How do you like my bow?  It tied beautifully and is such pretty ribbon. I'd been saving it for the right card...and this was it! I'm loving my blue palette right now...maybe because it's so hot where I live and the color blue is a cool color? I added a pastel pink with the blue making this card very girly and a favorite color combination for me. After looking at it again I realize...there's no white on this card, which is so unlike me (the chalk was fabulous to use to color my white paper)! Looking below, you can see the detail on this image. To color the little fairy I used my new Ott light that has a magnifier with it. Seriously, I needed a magnifier to color this tiny fairy! My card is 6" x 6".

Shhh, the baby is sleeping!

It's my Tuesday to post a card on Craft-Dee BowZ challenge blog.  Have you looked each Tuesday at the August cards made by the Design Team with the theme of "baby" and in the colors mint green, lavender and/or yellow?  What better and joyous occasion is there than celebrating a new baby! It's definitely a favorite of mine and you just know your card is going to be treasured in a baby book!

And, being overachievers, we set one additional goal this month and that was to use a stencil on our project.  The challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ for you this month is:  ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW.


I used a Penny Black stamp of this baby hedgehog and painted him with watercolors.  The stencil on my project is Mini Dots stencil by Memory Box. I used chalk ink in shades of pink, blue and lavender with finger daubers with my stencil. I'm one of those people who likes everything balanced and straight and I love small patterns. The pastel stars paper and the polka dots were so nice for me to work with.

The scalloped die cut around my image is by Whimsy (I cut 3 of them out to outline the lighter lavender die cut) and the flower is a die cut by La-La Land. I took a brad, and embossed it with clear powder and while it was still hot and sticky, I dipped it in yellow flocking. I love doing this for the center of my daisies! Daisies are such a pretty spring/summer flower!

The baby feet are buttons by Dress It Up with the backs cut off. The "sweet baby" sentiment is part of a cardboard die cut given to me, along with the ribbon, by Donna at Craft-Dee BowZ. Thanks, Donna! I painted the cardboard words with white gesso and then sponged pink and blue ink over the white and while the ink was still wet, I took Stampin' Up Iridescent embossing powder and sprinkled it all over the words and heated it up. The pink looks a little more peach in the photograph, but it really is pink and matches the stars on my background paper. I'm so sorry it doesn't show the true color!  I used my favorite color combination on this card...shades of lavender and a touch of pastels...any shade of purple is my favorite!


And here's my fabulous bow and I love how it came out. I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool to make this multi-looped bow.  The little onesie in the middle of the bow is a button from the same package from Dress It Up package that the little baby feet came in. The lace is from my voluminous collection of lace. I love pretty, sweet and cute cards and so when it came to adding embellishments, it was an easy choice to pull out the ribbon and lace!
 

I hope you 've liked our cards for the month of August and have decided to participate in the challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ where ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW. Thanks for visiting and you still have a few days to enter your card in our monthly challenge!

                                                                                      Hugs,
                                                                                Gail

I like paper piecing!

I am honored to be invited as a Guest Design Team member for today's challenge of PAPER PIECING at The Crazy Challenge. I used this rubber stamped image from hÄnglar & stÄnglar for my card and the papers are by Pebbles.


This very pretty round die cut/embossing die is by Marianne Designs. After it was cut and dry embossed, I added a little Glossy Accents to the embossed areas and then sprinkled Warm Glitter Ritz over it while still wet. The sentiment tags are from Lili of the Valley. The 3 pretty pink and clear jewels in the top corner are from Recollections; the silver pearls are from Hobby Lobby and the pink pearls are from Queen & Co. This beautiful lace, that I threaded this pretty pink and silver ribbon through, is from JoAnn's. The butterfly metal charm is tied with a piece of light pink embroidery thread to the bow and the charm is from my collection. I love girly so pretty embellishments, like ribbon and lace, are my favorites. Pearls and sparkly things comes in a close second! And I can't imagine anything more girly than pink...a favorite color of mine.

Here's what she looks like up close. I colored her hair, skin and shoes with Copics.


I'm very honored to be invited to share a card as a GDT at The Crazy Challenge for this PAPER PIECING challenge and hope you'll visit their blog and see the other inspiration made by their Design Team. Thank you, Em, for your invite and helping me get my card posted.

Let's hop baby!

It's time for a blog hop at Craft-Dee BowZ and the Design Team has created outstanding projects for you this hop!  The Team has focused on "baby" for our topic and to use the colors mint green, lavender and/or yellow. I used this digital baby fairy image by Bugaboo for this card. Making cards for a new baby is a favorite of mine since it's such a joyous occasion.  It's definitely a day to celebrate a birth day!


The green die cut is a die by Quik Cutz and the stitched oval and stitched rectangle are dies by Die-Namics. The pink and white 'buttons' are actually brads covered in pink and white gingham fabric that I cut off the back and glued them on my card. The corner die cut is by Whimsy. Thanks, Donna, for these adorable brads and pretty ribbon!  My paper is just a piece of scrapbook paper but being such a nice even pattern of pastel hearts is what caught my eye for this card background.


I colored my image with Copics. I used my glue pen and applied Warm Glitter Ritz on her wings. On the star I applied clear Wink of Stella over my coloring and then some Glossy Accents. The background is chalked...I used a pastel pink around the image and then a yellow on the outside of the oval and then blended them to meet. I love the look of the chalk around this baby image. It's just enough color without over powering this adorable image.

And here's my bow. This double looped bow tied so perfect using my Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool. And you know how much I like this little tool since I mention in it every post that has a bow. And, that little silver metal pacifier was the perfect charm for this card!


Since this is a blog hop, you'll want to leave comments at each of the stops.  We've got a small team here at Craft-Dee BowZ, so doing our hop is super easy!  Here are the links to follow:


It's always fun to participate in a blog hop where there's a prize...and the prize here is a 25' spool of ribbon. You'll need to leave a comment on each of the stops above, though, to be included in the drawing.  On August 17 a name will be drawn, so please check back at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog to see if you've won!  

Thanks for participating in the hop and I hope you like our creations. Good luck in the drawing!

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

Well, not exactly lions and tigers and bears....but how about a new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' of POLAR BEARS OR PENGUINS!  Everyone probably has one or the other, or both, in their Christmas stamp collection so I hope you'll pull them out and do a card for the challenge this month. I used a rubber stamp from Whimsy (art work by Crissy Armstrong) for my card. Isn't this just one of the cutest penguin stamps you've ever seen!  My favorite colors are the shades of blue for any winter cards. I think blue is a cooling color and it just seems appropriate to use it whenever I see snow!


I used the Whimsy snowflake border die, the Memory Box snowflake corner die, and the nested dies around my image are by QuicKutz. The three postage stamp sentiments are from Whimsy. I used flat backed glittery half pearls for the centers of my snowflakes that I got at Michael's. And I went a little crazy with some new embossing glitter from Stampendous, too, covering my diecut snowflakes with it and on my QuickKutz die cuts. I used my glue pen and Cool Glitter Ritz for the snow on the mailbox and ground and a touch of Glossy Accents on my red lights for shine. The pompom on his hat is covered in White Glitter Ritz. I love my pearl paint pen and made some snow and then sprinkled some of that Cool Glitter Ritz on the wet paint.



The sponsor for this month's challenge is Sweet Pea Stamps. They have such fabulous stamps, rubber and digital, at their store!

The Team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' love making Christmas cards and have created awesome cards to inspire you. I hope you'll join us for the challenge of POLAR BEARS OR PENGUINS.

Here kitty, kitty!

It's a new weekly challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog. Our Topic for today is RIBBON AND/OR LACE. Go ahead and challenge yourself to use both on your card!  I used this very cute image of my daughter putting a tiara on her kitty, Allie.  Just kidding, but I swear that our fabulous sponsors, Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter, created this image with my daughter in mind! This image is named Oh My! and the face on the kitty says it all!  The challenge over at As You Like It asks if you prefer feathers or fur. This is an easy one for me since I have 2 beagles and 3 cats...it's fur for me!


I had this lace and ribbon in my stash and they were absolutely perfect with this card. I used 2 different laces, the bow is different from the piece across the page with the ribbon threaded through it. The pretty peach dot in the center of the bow is a brad with the legs cut off and glued on. For my tiara I used glossy accents and then sprinkled Warm Glitter Ritz on it so the "diamonds" are raised a bit. The 3 self-adhesive sparkly dots on the side are on a sheet of multi-color ones made by EK Success and the sentiment is a very old stamp by Hero Arts. I used a Taylor Expressions die cut swirl and fine gold glitter paper. The butterfly die is by Poppy and is a stacking die with the filigree die and a solid back butterfly. I coated the filigree butterfly with my glue pen and Warm Glitter Ritz for sparkle. And although the photos aren't showing it very well, I applied Clear Wink of Stella to the hearts on this sweeties' pants and headband. Can't have enough sparkle!


The prize is donated by our fabulous sponsor, The Paper Shelter, and is a voucher for $30 if you use an image from The Paper Shelter, or 3 images of your choice if you don't use an image from The Paper Shelter. With all the images available at such a reasonable cost, why not use an image from our sponsor and take a chance to win the $30 voucher!

I love cupcakes!

Here we are, a new challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ so you know it's the first of the month! And, as usual, our challenge is monthly and the topic is ANYTHING GOES WITH A HANDMADE BOW.  I used this adorable image from Lili of the Valley for my card.


The card shape is by a die by Go Kreate, the diecut around my image is by Spellbinders, the cupcake die is by Marianne Design and the balloon die is by QuicKutz. I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool to make my pink double looped bow and I had this awesome cupcake button from Dress It Up that I cut off the back and glued it in the middle of the bow. My flowers are from I Am Roses and byThita. The tag sentiments are by Lili of the Valley. The little metal flower charm hanging from the little white bow was on a charm bracelet that my daughter didn't want anymore. My tip is this: take a look at old jewelry and you'll be amazed at what you can re-use and recycle...charm bracelets, old broaches, old earrings...I've used so many odds and ends like that as an embellishment or to put in the middle of a pretty bow!

Here's the image close-up and she's colored with Copics.


I made chocolate cupcakes with vanilla cream frosting. I wasn't kidding when I posted this and named the post "I love cupcakes!".  I used my Sakura glue pen and applied Warm Glitter Ritz to the petticoat of my image. I also added spots of glitter on my polka dot papers and around my balloon edges, too.

Please take a look at the projects the Team of Craft-Dee BowZ have made to inspire you this month and don't forget that each Tuesday one of us has a project to show you!  Hope you'll join us for our August ANYTHING GOES WITH A HANDMADE BOW.

Plaids and pastels

It's the fourth Tuesday of the month and my turn to post on Craft-Dee BowZ. The Team challenged themselves to use pastels and/or plaids this month and "Out of Shape - No Square or Rectangle Card" and we succeeded with meeting our challenge!  I'm the last of the four to post and I tried to do all three on my card...pastels, plaid AND not square or rectangle. And I have to tell you...not making a square card was the hardest part of the challenge for me. I used this LaLa Land image and the matching die so I cheated and didn't have to fussy cut and she's colored with Copics. The shape of my card was made with a die by Sue Wilson. The challenge for you this month is ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HAND MADE BOW!


Here's my bow made on my Craft-Dee BowZ tool and you can see it's a double loop bow and it came out great!  My roses, buds and lily are from I Am Roses and those tiny pretty peach colored flowers are byThita The sentiment tags are from Lili of the Valley. The leaf die is by Ellentina.  I used two apricot colored pearls on the sentiment tags and I used iridescent flat back rhinestones around the edge of my card.  Thank you, Donna, for the pretty goodies this month including the ribbons and rhinestones!


If you haven't joined the challenge yet, you have just a couple of more days before it ends at Craft-Dee BowZ for our July ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HAND MADE BOW!  I hope you've looked at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog each week to see the Design Team's creations to inspire you and, if not, take a moment to look now!

                                                                                     Hugs,
