with love

Hello, Hello, Hello,

Welcome back. It's the first Tuesday of the month and it's time for "Inspiration Tuesday" over at Craft-Dee BowZ

I thought I'd share a card I've made using a brand new die I purchased recently. I loved it when I bought it and I really love it since I've used it. I actually purchased 4 different dies and this is the 1st one I have used so far. Can't wait to use the others.

OK let me share my card with you

This die set is so versatile. Its called Love is in the Air. This set comes with 6 dies, 3 smaller flowers that match the flowers on the left side of the cutout. Nice, but the star of this set are the 3 other dies. They are interchangeable. You get just the right side of the heart, you get just the left side of the heart. And when you put these together, your cut out looks like what you are seeing on my card.  The 3rd heart piece is just a smooth heart half. I bought this at HSN on their craft day broadcast last month. 

This is a crafter's Companion die, from their Create a Card series, Love is in the Air.
 Check it out here.

For the open background of the heart, I used an alcohol inked panel positioned behind that heart. 
I then attached the panel onto a 6X6 silver card front.

I used a die to cut the sentiment, added some pearls to the flower centers on the heart and stamped and cut out a butterfly for additional interest.

I also added a fluffy bow. I made a triple loop bow and then stacked a double loop bow on top. It gave me the look I wanted.

My Bow

Here is a closer view of that luscious bow.

If you have a problem making bows, then may I suggest the Craft-Dee BowZ tool. 
It is easy to use, portable, lightweight and enables you to make bows from 1" to 4 1/2" 

You can order one direct from the Craft-Dee BowZ site.
