Paper Bow Tutorial

Hello friends, it's my turn to do a tutorial and I seen a lot of different bows out there, from ribbon, tissue paper, big, small...tons.  I do have a bow maker too, I mean there are tons.  So this is one more Bow making tutorial.  A paper one, and pretty simple using some spellbinders or punches.  I used a small oval punch, large oval punch and the Ribbon Banners Spellbinders some glue dots and some pearls.  I hope the pictures help and I will write a few instructions, but again, pretty simple.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to get in your craft room and make a "Paper Bow" for your cards.

 The small and large oval I wrap around a pencil and put a small glue dot on the end, don't pinch this that is why I use a pencil, otherwise your bow won't be round.
 I cut the spellbinder ribbon banner in half.  
 I then add some glue dots and start the layering, bottom working your way to the top.
 Once I think I have it how I like it, and I adhere it to the card.  Adding some pearls or bling, sometimes a small button looks good too.
 Here is my supplies and my finished card.
 Hope you get a chance to try this paper bow, there are so many versions out there, but thought this one was pretty simple to share.
 Till Next time happy crafting!

Best Wishes!!!

Hi Everyone;

It has been quite a while since I have been able to use any other mediums then Copic Markers, so I thought for today's post for One Crazy Stamper, I would try the Inktense pencils.  I also went out of my comfort zone a bit.  I used this same image on the 1st of the month, completely different layout and Copic Markers were used at that time.

I touched a wet paint brush to the tip of the Inktense pencil and transferred this to a craft sheet.  This was done a few times, so that there was a small pool of colour on the sheet.  I used a stem stitch and Hot Pink Sulky thread around the die cuts.

Supplies used:
There are still a few days left to enter this month's "Anything Goes" challenge. Please DO NOT use a Digital Image.  In the meantime, check out Lora's store One Crazy Stamper for some amazing deals.

Until next time, keep crafting.

A Great Big Thank You

I have recently started fostering dogs with a local animal rescue, and wanted to design a few cards with a puppy theme to help raise funds for the rescue, so when I received this new image, I went straight to work coloring it up.

The image is Daisy and Basset, from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps and is available to purchase at One Crazy Stamper here. I colored the image with Copics, then fussy cut it out, and layered on a doily die from Cheery Lynn. The dp is from Authentique's Sweetness collection and the sentiment is from my stash.

Easter's on it's Way!

Hello crafty peeps! I would like to say Happy Easter to all and share my very first Easter card ever, I also have a special bonus card from my daughter. For my creation I incorporated a few aspects from my shabby chic tutorial as did my mini me. I used a mixed medley of memory box dies. combining tiny tulips with the grassland border. The tulips were cut with yellow cardstock, then coloured with copics and glittered with stickles. I added lots of bows with some twine, then used my yellow pearl pen(which I think is the perfect shade of yellow for Easter).

Hello and Happy Good Friday!!!!  As promised I have a special card to show you that I made using the Jelly Bean Nap stamp in a different way than just using it for Easter, check it out....

* Memento Inks: Tuxedo Black & Rich Cocoa

So Precious!!

Hi Everyone;

It is another Wacky Wednesday and mother nature seems out of synch with the weather.  Sunday was a beautiful Spring Day and yesterday it snowed; it seems winter came back.  Wish Spring and Summer would hurry up and come -- I certainly hope that summer will not be as extreme as winter has been.

For today's post for One Crazy Stamper, I have used this adorable image from Wild Rose Studio called Bella Sleeping; a perfect image to welcome a new addition to a family.

Supplies used:
There is still plenty of time to play along at OCS's "Anything Goes Challenge" this month; please do not use a digital image for a change to win a YNS prize pack.  Also check out Lora's store OCS for some amazing products and prices.

Until next time, keep crafting!
