Thanks for dropping in today. It's time for my ususal 1st Tuesday of the month post for Craft-Dee BowZ. This month the theme is pearls and lace, and I used the most gorgeous green pistachio colored lace. I also recently received a Memory Box Eiffel Tower die, so it's "Off to Paris" for my project today.
Lately I have purchased a few stamp sets with a Parisian theme. If you are like me, you get one set, it has cool images, then weeks later you see another set with something else that peeks your interest , along the same theme of course and now you have 2 sets in that same theme, different stamps, same theme. Well needless to say I now own 3 Parisian themed stamp sets. LOL Maybe I need to take a trip there.
Let me share with you my project.
The stamps are all from 7 Gypsies/Hampton Arts and are from an older set that is probably no longer available.However the stamps are just perfect for my Parisian theme today. That Eiffel tower was cut using silver CS and I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the stamps.
The lace......... How fabulous is this lace. I have some more and will use again, hopefully soon. However I love it so much I just want to hoard it. I just want to look at it, and touch it. LOL I'm sure you know what I mean.
For this project I got out my needle and thread and gathered the lace right down the center. Next, I sewed a cream crocheted lace strip over the center. Then I wove the green seam binding ribbon thru various open areas in the crocheted lace. Next I made a 4 loop bow using the green seam binding and attached it to the end of the ribbon I wove thru the crocheted lace. And lastly I added a" ribbon candy" bow using cream seam binding ribbon to my fluffy bow. I felt I needed to break up all that green. Oh so yummy is that lace and seam binding.
The bow is made using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool. This is the tool that makes bow making quick and easy. Order yours today here.
