Thinking of You

Welcome to June!!! And welcome to my blog!!!

WOW do you believe it, it's June 1. Awesome isn't it. Summer is really closing in fast.

This month at Craft-Dee BowZ there is a Blog Hop starting Wednesday June 4 at 10:00 p.m. EDT. This month's blog hop is being sponsored by The Paper Nest Dolls.The prize - $25.00 gift certificate to the Paper Nest Dolls store.We hope you can attend.

The theme this month at Craft-Dee BowZ for the designers, is Fairies and Butterflies and the primary color is shades of aqua. What a great theme and love that color. The design team have some special projects in store for you. So I hope you stop in at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog each Tuesday. My post will be Tuesday June 3. I'd love it if you could stop back.

Since it's June 1, let me share with you the inspiration project I made for the challenge post over at Craft-Dee BowZ.

Don't you love that teal blue color. I used a stamp that's been in my stash for eons. It's from Fiskars and I just love this stamp. I covered the image with a blue Gelato and spritzed it with a quick water spray. Then I stamped it off and reinked the stamp with Rusty Nail.When I stamped the image again it gave me that rusty look with a bit of the leftover blue Gelato. It was just the look I was after.

Oh that teal background panel is stamped with a Unity Stamp from the Layers of Life stamp set for May. I used VersaMark for the water mark look.

That bow - I made a double loop bow using a wider white sheer and layered that teal ribbon on top (triple loop bow). That flower next to the bow is a teal and rusty color combo.Love it. More lace and ribbon layering under the stamped image. If you are bow challenged, then I have the perfect tool for you.

This tool is the best bow maker on the market. Easy to use and it takes up just a small amount of space, plus the metal pegs are stored inside the tool. You can order one here.
