Here is my vintage baby card inspiration...


I love vintage and nothing is more vintage than Graphic 45 papers!  This card is made with leftovers in my stash from the Baby 2 Bride Collection.  The cradled babies remind me of  the lullaby, "Rock A Bye Baby".  The chipboard "Lullaby" is covered with Gesso, Acrylic Paint and Perfect Pearls.  The angle of the word and music notes made it a perfect fit for my card.  A few die-cuts and a tinted rose along with vintage corners embellish the card.  I also inked the edges of the papers to enhance the vintage appearance.  The multi loop bow was created using my wonderful Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.

I hope my card has inspired you in some way.

Craft-Dee BowZ " Hope...Believe...Dream" Canvas

I'm up on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog today with my August Design Team inspiration.  August?  Where did June and July go?   This month, we are working with yellow, lavender, and mint green ribbons along with stencils on our projects.
I chose to make an altered canvas wall hanging using one of my favorite stencils...
"Hope, Believe, Dream"

I used lots of spray mists to give the background coat some shimmer.  Next, I placed the stencil and used inks over the entire area.  Before removing the stencil, I added glass bead gel over the flower area. It gives great texture and a unique appearance when it has dried.  I removed the stencil, let the glass bead gel completely air dry and added some extra color to the flowers.  To finish off the flowers, I used green Flower Soft at the top of each stem just below the flower base.  This is another great product for adding texture to projects.  The butterflies are die-cut from glitter paper and vellum.  I used three die-cut words as the quote and added a few sequins for more texture.  The yellow ruffled trim is hot glued around the perimeter of the canvas. The final embellishment is the lovely lavender bow created with my Craft-Dee BowZ Tool
