Waiting for you!


Don't you just love the 1st of every month?! So many challenges begin on the 1st of each month and Craft-Dee BowZ is just one of them!  So, here we go and I hope you'll join us in May. The challenge this month is ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HAND MADE BOW. I used this Magnolia stamp named Tilda with Rose for my card.


I colored my image with Copics and I used an embossing folder for the bricks with black paper that had a white core and then I sanded it. After fussy cutting around her legs, I slid the bricks under her, taped it down on the back and then used an oval diecut to cut it all out. I mounted it on this pretty die cut in black by Sue Wilson. The little black dots on the white cardstock are enamel dots.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the Ribbon Girl. The pretty swirl and heart die cut is by Magnolia. The turquoise rhinestone swirl is by Michael's and the Hello die cut is from my best friend, Lillian. My teal ribbon is satin and I pleated it and used glue dots to hold it in place as I went across the page. The black ribbon is sheer organza. My bow is double looped and was so easy to make with my Craft-Dee BowZ tool. This little tool is small, handy and easy to transport, so if you go to crops or to classes, this bow tool is for you!  I added a small red rose to the center of my bow to match the rose that Tilda is holding. A dash of glitter on all the flowers petals adds a touch of sparkle.


The team has made some beautiful creations again this month. Since we're a team of only four, it doesn't take long to take a look at our creations. All comments are welcome, too!  Our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ is ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HAND MADE BOW and I'll hope you'll join us this month!

Flowers, Fleurs, Blumes, Fiores, Flors ...

Today is my day to post on Craft-Dee BowZ. Such fun that we each have our own Tuesday each month! The Design Team used the colors yellow, lavender and moss green this month. I used this beautiful image named Spring Cart from Robyn's Fetish, our sponsor.



I colored this image with my Zig watercolor markers and this was the first time I've used them. I can use some practice, but what better way to practice than with a flower image!! 

The colors we used this month were perfect for me. ;) With Mother's Day approaching in May, I always make my mom a pretty card. Her favorite color is yellow and my dad's favorite color was purple and I know this card might make my mom a little sad for a moment since dad is in heaven now, but I thought she'd like to have their two favorite colors together. It took me a bit to find this paper in my stash and it's from a pad by Wild Rose. I used my Memory Box rectangle die and a die by Marianne for the ferns. The tags are stamps by Lili of the Valley.



Thank you, Donna at Craft-Dee BowZ, for this beautiful yellow sheer ribbon. It was the absolute perfect ribbon for this card being that it's so sheer and made a beautiful double bow. I made my double looped bow with my Craft-Dee BowZ Tool and left the tail on one side long so I could wrap it around my design paper. The yellow flat back smooth bubbles are from Queen & Co. The purple jewels in the corner are crystals that have a beautiful shine to them!



Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is proud to sponsor this challenge. They are a division of I Did It Creations, and was created and is owned by Robyn Weinrib. Robyn owns a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.


Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is happy to award 3 digital stamps of the winner's choice to the winner of this challenge!!

I hope you've been watching the Design Team's creations posted each Tuesday and if you've missed any of the projects this month, please go here and scroll down. Be ready to be delighted with the projects we each have done using an image from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More!

Winter Animals

It's the second Wednesday of the month and time for a new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'. Our topic for this challenge is:  ANIMALS in winter.  Your animal needs to be a winter animal, or an animal dressed for winter since we are a Christmas challenge. 

We have a sponsor this month, All Dressed Up, and I was given this adorable image to use. Thank you Wendy at ADU! The name of this stamp is Christmas Post.


I colored my image with my new Zig watercolor markers. The technique I used was to color a small area and then wet that area of the image and slide the color around with a small wet paintbrush. I'll be using this technique more since I love the watercolor look. To put this card in perspective, it's 5"x7". The snow was made with white puffy paint and then I sprinkled Cool Glitter Ritz on it. The snowflakes aren't showing up well, but they're colored light blue and then I used my Sakura glue pen and applied Cool Glitter Ritz all over them, too.  The paws on the sentiment are buttons with the backs cut off and glued on.


Our sponsor, All Dressed Up, is offering 3 digital images of the winner's choice as the prize. If you have never visited their site, you're missing out on some very cute images! Click on the link in my post to go to the store!

 
The Team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' have made some awesome cards to inspire you this month. I hope you'll visit us and will join our challenge of ANIMALS in winter since it's never too early to start Christmas cards!

Woodland Friends

Me and my buddy, Linus

Today is the beginning of a new month, and the start of a new challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ. The challenge for this month is ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW. I used this adorable image from Little Miss Muffet named Polka Dot Pal Gail. (No this is not a coincidence that my name and the image's name is the same...read below!)

I used the following dies on my card: Dienamics double stitched oval, Joy square behind the oval, QuicKutz corner swirl and Frantic Stamper sentiment "hugs". My paper is by Whimsy and the crocheted heart, lace, sequins and pearls are from my stash of supplies.


I'd like to fill you in on this digital image. I won the Weekly Giveaway at Little Miss Muffet in December. The prize was working with Barbara of LMM to design a custom stamp for me. Can you think of a better prize...a stamp that you help design and is made to your liking? It was easy for me to give suggestions for my stamp since I designed it after me! I wear a ponytail, I live where it's hot (so summer clothes) and I have a young lemon colored beagle named Linus (I also have a smaller tri-color beagle named Lucy).

This is the image we finalized and I colored the beagle here like Linus and have included a picture of him below. The difference between me and the image on my card is that I have gray hair and the image has black hair. And, the difference between Linus and the image on the card is that he has grown up a bit!
Here's a close-up picture of the image. I colored it with Copics.
I always save the best for last...here's my fabulous triple looped satin bow and I added a dog paw button (with the back cut off) in the middle of my bow. This bow came out wonderful using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool. I could never have made it without the assistance of my bow tool and it was so easy to make, too!


Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is proud to sponsor this challenge.

Fairy Sweet!

Hello, it's the fourth Tuesday of the month and my turn to post on the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge blog. Our challenge is ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW. This month we have a sponsor, Cute As A Button, and I was given this beautiful image name Lagoon Fairy to use for my card. The Design Team also had a challenge to use the color purple and the item of paint chips on our projects. Paint chips are a wonderful addition to your supplies. The stock is heavier and are great to use when die cutting. So the next time you walk through a paint department, get a few and try them!


I colored my image with my new Polychromos Pencils and am delighted with the results of the pencils. I added some Cool Glitter Ritz to her wings, a bit of tan flocking to the cattails, and Glossy Accents to the water drops and water. The clear iridescent sequins, the purple and pink rhinestones are from my stash. And, do you see my paint chips?  I took 2 large ones, put them together so they were large enough for my card, and then mounted them on white paper. It almost makes it look like I have 4 separate pieces of purple for the background.

 
I used flowers from my favorite stores:  I Am Roses, Wild Orchid and byThita.  
 
 
I'm so happy with the way my double looped satin bow came out, too. using my Craft-Dee BowZ bow Tool. I added an extra tail of a darker lavender to the bow. This bow was super easy to do, even adding the extra tail while using my bow tool. It frees up my hands so I don't have to hold so much and can do double and triple bows and add extra tails, with ease!
 
 
Our sponsor for this month is Cute As A Button who will award the winner of this challenge with 2 single digital images of your choice! Have you seen the images at Cute As A Button? I think they're wonderful and are definitely images you'll like, too!

Elisabeth Bell's Rosie's Posies

For the past few years I have filled my plate with DT projects.  I cut back on some of my DT responsibilities for 2016 and am enjoying a bit more time at my craft table rather than my computer and that included entering challenges. Here's a card I made for fun; just for the heck of it.  I used this adorable image by Elisabeth Bell named Rosie's Posies.


The diecut behind my image is by Marianne and the sentiment with matching die cut are from Whimsy. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the lower part of the card. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, byThita and I Am Roses. The assorted green leaves are from Wild Orchid. The green glitter swirl is by Prima and was clear rhinestones and I colored them with my Copic green marker. The gold pearls are from JoAnn's and the ribbon with the button in the middle is from my stash as well as all the different embellishments going across the page.


I colored my image with Copics and added a touch of Hero Arts glitter with my glue pen to the flowers in her hands, the flowers in the arrangement and on the die cut behind the image. I inked the edge of my oval and then applied clear embossing powder for some shine (that isn't showing well in the photos).

Thanks for stopping by and I'd love you to Follow my blog!

                                                                                                 Hugs,

Easter bunnies and eggs!

There are so many adorable Easter images available nowadays. This is a Bildmalarna stamp (so sad that they aren't in business anymore) and I think it's one of the cutest.

I'm busy with working my full-time job and maintaining after a husband, 2 dogs, and 3 cats so my time is pretty limited. My weekends are full with the fun stuff like chores and errands and I'm also working out in our garden, too. My dearest friend, Lillian, helped me out by making 2 Easter cards I could send out to loved ones. One Saturday afternoon I shut out the world and made this card for her!


I colored the image with Copics and added Cool Glitter Ritz to the eggs, butterflies and dragonfly. I did the background behind the bunny using a stipple brush. Here's a close-up of this adorable rubber stamped image.


My dies are the following:  around my image is by Memory Box, the butterfly die by Cheery Lynn, the dragonfly die by Magnolia, and the flower die by La-La Land. I used a Stampin' Up sentiment and punch.

Thanks for stopping by and a special thank you to Lillian for the cards she made for me!


                                                                            Hugs,
                                                  Gail

So Fairy Cute!

Today is the second Monday in March and time for a new challenge at The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog. This challenge is #97 and the theme is So Fairy Cute.  We want to see fairies and they must be cute! I used this adorable image from All Dressed Up named Little Flower Fairy. Thank you, Wendy, for sharing your art work with me for this challenge!


I colored my image with Copics and then used my Sakura Glue Pen and added Warm Glitter Ritz to her hair and wings. The square scalloped die cut around my image is by Whimsy. The flowers are from Prima, I Am Roses and Wild Orchid. I added glitter to the edges of the petals of the flowers for sparkle since fairies need a lot of sparkle on and around them. The other die cuts among my flowers are a Sue Wilson ivy die, a Magnolia swirl and the little bird house is by Marianne. The 2 layered butterfly down in the left corner are a Poppy and an Ellentina butterfly, stacked with little pearls in the middle and glitter on the edges of the wings. I love the look of it. the lace is from my stash and I've not managed to keep track of where I get each piece of lace from. The rhinestones and pearls throughout the card are from Queen & Co and large cut jewels in the top corners are from Prima. The narrow ribbon bow is 2 different ribbons, using assorted size loops and it's actually ribbon that I use for ribbon embroidery.

Cute and Christmassy!

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'...and this month the topic is:  CUTE CHRISTMAS!  How hard is that...not very. I think there are more cute Christmas stamps than any other holiday. One thing you don't want to do is BUY Christmas cards later this year, or stress that you don't have enough made. Join us the second Wednesday of each month and you'll have gotten a head start on your cards!

I used a stamp I bought this year from Whimsy. She's a stamp by Time For Tea. I think she's a great image to use for a CUTE CHRISTMAS card!


I colored my image with Copics and added the white polks dots on her hat with a white fine tip Sharpie pen. The big snowflake is a die by Tonic Studios and the sentiment in the center is by Whimsy and I used a round punch. The lace is from my stash and I ran pearls along the top of it to dress it up a bit--like lace needs dressing up! My polka dot ribbon and red rhinestones are from my stash. The snow and pom-pom on her hat were made with white 3-D paint and while wet I sprinkled glitter on the paint.


If you haven't yet been to Christmas at Sweet Stampin' to see the very CUTE CHRISTMAS cards by the Design Team, please stop over. You won't be disappointed and maybe a card or two will inspire you to join us this month. The challenge closes April 11!  Please read the rules on the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' challenge blog before entering.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join us this month!

Fairy Happy Birthday!

It's March 1 and time for a new monthly challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ.  And our challenge for you this month is ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW.

For my card today I used this Whimsy Wee image fairy. She's so sweet and was fun to color those wings of hers!  I added 3 sequins with little pearls in the middle, a gorgeous square jewel from JoAnn's and that butterfly and flower strip across the bottom is from Michael's. I used a sentiment by Whimsy and punched it out, along with a scallop punch for layering. I brushed on some white gesso on the edge of my background paper and used my stipple brush to add white splatters to the narrow peach layer under the maize colored paper. I was looking for a soft look for this card with the peach tones.

 
I colored my image with Copics and used Warm Glitter Ritz on her wings and throughout her hair. I used Cool Glitter Ritz on the blue bird. I'm happy to see the glitter showing up in the photograph! And you can see my sequins with the baby pearls in the center close-up below.


I don't usually show the inside of my cards but I love this rubber stamp by Printworks.


I always save the picture of my bow for last since it's always the finishing touch on my cards.  This is the prettiest soft peach color ribbon and it made a wonderful bow using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  It's a double looped bow with a Stampin' Up button glued in the middle. This ribbon knot in the middle looked perfect, but I ran across this button and it matched so nicely that I couldn't resist using it! Have you ever seen how easy it is to use the Craft-Dee BowZ tool?  Take a look at one the videos since we've got a video of an 8 year old making her first bow!


We're sponsored this month by Cute As A Button who has donated two digital images of the winner's choice!  Francesca at Cute As A Button is a talented artist and I hope you'll stop by her store and see her art work here.

Snowflakes, snowflakes and more snowflakes

Well, here we are heading towards the end of February already. Today is the fourth Tuesday of the month and it's my turn to post a card for Craft-Dee BowZ using this beautiful image by Francesca of Cute As A Button. The image I chose today is named Winter Flurries.


The snowflake border is a die by Whimsy and I added clear Skiddles to the middle of each snowflake. My sentiment is by Whimsy, too. The snowflakes in the top right corner are a die by La-La Land. I coated the snowflakes in the corner with my Sakura Glue Pen and then coated them with Cool Glitter Ritz. You can see the Cool Glitter Ritz below on the snowflakes, her hat, cuffs, collar and boots, too. For the snowman I used Stampendous Snow Glitter. I added the little purple pearls as an accent on the top string of each snowflake.


And the best part is the bow! This is a double loop bow made on my Craft-Dee BowZ tool. My bow tool has so many assorted sizes to fit every project I'm working on. I love my little bow tool and it hangs by it's pretty ribbon right next to my work table. It's the one tool I use on almost every card! I added this little blue snowflake in the middle with a bit of glue.


Our sponsor is Cute As A Button.  Francesca at Cute As A Button is a wonderful artist and I know you'll love her artwork. She's donating two digital images of the winner's choice! Why not stop by her store and take a look at her fabulous images!

I love snowflakes!

Just when so many of you are wishing for all the snow to melt, along comes Christmas at Sweet Stampin' with their February challenge of SNOWFLAKES. Awww, quit your moaning...winter isn't over yet, no matter how much you wish for spring, and your winter stamps are probably still within arm's reach!  We want to see SNOWFLAKES for this month's challenge!!

I've used this image from Lili of the Valley for my card and colored him with Copics.


My papers are by Doodlebug...my most favorite brand of cute and adorable papers. The snowflakes up the sides are by Memory Box and I added some white 3-D paint in the middle of each snowflake and then sprinkled glitter on the wet paint. My sentiment is from Lili of the Valley. I colored my entire snowman with Susie Sparkle Snowfall Glitter using my Sakura Glue Pen. Oh, and a dash of Glossy accents to the bird feeder so it looks like glass in person. To make the snow on the ground 3-D, I first put down some white 3-D paint and then sprinkled the glitter on top. I like doing that when I'm wanting more than a flat sparkle surface. The red rhinestones are from my collection of supplies.



So, who is our sponsor for this challenge?  ME! Our small, and talented, team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' is happy to jump in whenever we can to always have a prize for our drawing and so this month I offered to be the sponsor!!  You don't have to leave a comment on each design team member's blog (we're a small team of 6) to win the prize, but it would be appreciated.  Everyone can use a little encouragement and a kind word or two, so please leave a little note if you like what we've made.

The Team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' makes outstanding Christmas cards since that's what we love to do. I hope you'll join us for our challenge of SNOWFLAKES!

Love, love, love

It's the second Monday of February which means it's time for Challenge 96 at The Cutie Pies Challenge Blog. And, since we're honoring Valentine's Day this month, our challenge is ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE...but don't forget that your card has to be CUTE, too. Our description of ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE IS:  Valentines/Weddings/Anniversaries).

For my card I used this cute image from The Paper Nest Dolls named Ellie With Heart Locket.



The lattice trellis up the side is a punch by Martha Stewart. The word "love" is a die by Memory Box. The heart charm at the top is by Craft Fantastic where you put your own picture/photo and glue it in the middle of the metal base and then glue the clear acrylic over the top of it. So what I did was use a piece of my printed paper for a perfect match! My paper is by American Crafts. My sentiment and the key are covered with Glossy Accents. First I tried embossing powder, but didn't like how it came out and it warped the paper since I wanted it completely covered. I ended up with the Glossy Accents and am really happy with the results. I colored my image with Copics and added Glossy Accents to her boots and Clear Wink of Stella all over her lock. I added a touch of glitter to her dress and accents on her. The layout of this card comes from a card I received from a good friend of mine, Patty Sue. Thanks, Patty Sue, for sending me that card and inspiring me to expand past my 6x6 square cards!



We have two sponsors this month! 
 
http://www.papernestdolls.com/
The Paper Nest Dolls who has offered $15 to spend in the online store


http://www.disdigistamps.com/
Di's Digi Downloads who has offered a $10 voucher to the winner.

The Team at The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog has created some awesome cards to inspire you with the hopes of encouraging you to join in this month and you have until February 29th to enter!  Take a look at the Team's cards and I hope to see your project with the topic of ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE and that it's CUTE (and remember it can be Valentines/Weddings/Anniversaries).

Love is a furry friend

Welcome to February!  Already a full month into 2016...who's still writing 2015 on everything?  I confess to doing that a few times!  There's a new challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ and it's ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HANDMADE BOW. Don't act surprised...it's the same challenge every month!  Bows are our specialty here and so get out your ribbon since a handmade bow is required.

For my card I used this adorable stamped image from Wild Rose that I've had for years now. My goal for 2016 is to use some of these fabulous supplies I have. 

The doily die cut is by Cheery Lynn, the cream colored metal frame with the word 'LOVE' in it is from Stampin' Up and I put tan colored Skittles in the left side corners. I used an "Around the Page" punch set from Martha Stewart for the shape of my card.


I colored my image with Copics and added a touch of glitter to my little image's collar and ruffled sleeves. Those jeweled butterflies are from Queen & Co, but I added the pearl and the twisted wire antennae. And those mauve/purple crystal jewels down in the corner of the image are from Michael's.


My bow is a double loop and I slid an extra piece of ribbon within the knot and then notched all 4 tails. I glued the button in the middle...I love bows with a charm, button, flower...anything in the center. I think it dresses up the bow a bit. This bow was simple to make using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  If you don't have a bow maker, you need one and this one is the most economical, easiest and is small enough to hang within your reach while you're crafting. Take a look at the video library and see how easy it is to use! The library has videos on how to make a bow with extra tails and double loops, like I've done. And if you have any doubts, scroll down the list of videos and see our demo of an 8 year old making her first bow. Yes, even an 8 year old can do it!!


Our sponsor this month is Cute As A Button who has donated two digital images of the winner's choice as the prize! Have you seen Francesca beautiful art work?  Take a look here.

The Team at Craft-Dee BowZ has created awesome projects to inspire you. Please take a look here and take just a second to leave a comment. We're a small team of 4 and appreciate your kind words which inspire us!  This is a month long challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ and each Tuesday morning a team member will be featured, so stop by each Tuesday to see another creation!
