Craft-Dee BowZ "Just A Little Note"

 I'm up on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog today with my Design Team inspiration for May.

 The Design Team is working with a "Spots and Dots" theme along with blue, purple, and red ribbon colors on our projects.  Our DT product always has the most yummy ribbons to choose from each month.  I couldn't wait to use the blue plaid!

"Just A Little Note"

I love Daffodils and they are blooming everywhere in my yard.  They have the most delightful scent.  I created this window scene using one of my favorite Daffodil stamps and used water color markers to color them in.  The distressed background paper reminds me of a weathered Spring house.  The weathered areas represent my spots and the pearls are my dots!

The fabulous bow was made with my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.  If you don't own one of these tools, check them out now and add one to your crafting stash.  You will be happy that you did!  Bow making is fast and easy with the Craft-Dee BowZ Tool.

Craft-Dee BowZ May Challenge!

It's May Day! That's right...today, May 1st is recognized all over the world as a celebration of the Spring season.  A day of fun and festivity.  My inspiration for the Craft-Dee BowZ May Challenge is also fun and festive!  We are playing with "Spots and Dots" for May along with the colors of red, blue and purple. 

I chose a red dot theme for my challenge inspiration...

 "Make a Wish"
This 6 x 6 card is made of all cardstock with a top layer of some awesome new vinyl-like sheeting from Imagine Crafts.  It's translucent and reflects the light creating a great visual effect. The pattern here is called Vertigo and came in our DT product this month.  I am loving it!  I punched one inch coin dots to embellish the card front.  The sentiment is a new stamp from Close To My Heart and is now in my stash of favorites.  A pretty flourish adds another fab touch to the card.

The multi-loop coin dot bow (isn't this ribbon so fun?) was made using my fabulous Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  It makes creating bows so easy and never leaves my scrap space.  Hop on over to the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog and add one to your crafting stash today.  You'll be glad you did.

For my Anniversary Challenge inspiration, I chose to use the Dies R Us Challenge Blog colors...


This 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card has a cardstock base with matting beneath a favorite piece of patterned paper in my stash.  The paper matched the Dies R Us Challenge Blog color along with the cardstock I used.  The bottom layer is topped with a triangle cut piece of patterned paper to form a pocket. I cut a medallion, tucked it into the pocket and used it as a background for the sentiment banner and fronds.

Die-cuts are a staple for me and I couldn't wait to use the Poppy Flower, Delicate Fronds and Heart Corner dies that I purchased not long ago.  Keeping everything in basic white, I accented with the peach-orange color found on the blog.  The cluster of poppies are arranged on the pocket cover with a few hearts added in the center.  A couple of stick pins and a two-toned bow made with my ever present Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool complete the arrangement.  The delicate corner dies are now on my favorite list and will be used often!
