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!

If Friends were flowers.........

Hi all
It is Tracey here with my post  for the third Tuesday of the month. on the  Craft-Dee BowZ challenge blog   This month our sponsors are Robyns Fetish stamps and more . I have used their stunning image called Daisy Days... She is so cute !!
The The Design Team  had to use the colours yellow/moss and lavender  and the theme of floral frenzy on their projects this month .Here is my card  which has a touch of all 3 colours. I coloured Daisy with promarkers. .

 
The sentiment is a stamp from pink gem. The papers I used are by First edition at Trimcraft. I used an oval spellbinders die set to create the frame around Daisy .The pretty  flowers are from wild orchid .The big shiny circles on the side tabs   have been slightly altered adding the  papers behind them that matched my project and along with the beautiful butterflies  and dotty organza ribbon were provided by my Mpp pack. The bow was formed using my fabulous  bow maker ...my go to bow making tool that is so easy to use

I hope you like my project and that you join us with your projects in our "Anything goes with a handmade bow  challenge " this month
Happy crafting
Tracey

"Let your dreams bloom"

Vicki here...It's the second Tuesday of the month and time for my Design Team inspiration on the Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge Blog.  We are playing with flowers....lots of flowers!  Our ribbon colors of yellow, lavender and green are perfect for Spring.

Don't forget the Craft-Dee BowZ April Challenge is being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish.
Robyn's Fetish digital images are available HERE.  You will find a wide variety of images to select in many different categories.



The prize for April's Challenge top winner is...
3 single images of the winner's choice!
 So, if you want to win, be sure to join in....HERE.

My Design Team inspiration for April...
 
"Let your dreams bloom"

This 6 x 6 card is full of blooms!  I love this floral patterned paper that I have been hoarding in my stash.  It has all the colors of Spring and was a perfect match to the yummy olive green ribbon in our DT product this month. The sentiment is from a stamp set that includes the background flower also.  The circle die cut is matted with a Lotus Blossom and has added dimension.


The triple loop bow is three layers and was created using the Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.  You can add one to your stash today....HERE.  You'll be happy you did!  The bow is topped with flowers and a few stick pins to finish the look!

I chose the lily image to use on my project. 
This is such a pretty image and perfect for this time of the year.

I fussy cut the lilies and mounted them on a round shape that is off-set on the clock. I used some of that yummy yellow sheer ribbon.This card called for a double-loop bow and I decided the yellow sheer worked best with the colors of CS I used.
For additional information about my card,

More enticement for Stamp Escape in TN

I thought I'd post another of my classes for Stamp Escape in TN being held 4/22-4/23.  My second class will beheld on Friday, April 22 from 2:30 to 4:30.  This is three fun projects all centered around a wine bottle.  I created some bottle toppers and then on to a bottle "sleeve".   What a wonderful way to gift a bottle of wine to someone without the usual bottle bag with no character.  Here's a peek at what we'll be doing:


For the quirky sense of humor:

For the more elegant type:


And here's the bottle sleeve.  Notice the cute flaps at the top?  All done with one piece of card stock.  All are topped off with a gorgeous bow created on the Craft-Dee BowZ tool!


Have I whet your whistle?  If you haven't signed up yet, you'd best get on over to the Stamp Escape website and click on that button!

I'll bring the wine (empty of course) and you bring your tools and together we'll create these fun projects!

Donna
