Craft-Dee BowZ "Ornamental" Reds and Golds

I'm up on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog with my December inspiration for you!

I'm a traditional kind of gal when it comes to the Christmas holidays.  I love the deep, rich reds and greens along with the ever present gold and silver that accompany them during the season.  Here at Craft-Dee BowZ, we are working with these colors during the month of December following a Christmas/holiday theme for our projects.

I created a card using red and white with gold accents.   The fabulous ribbon in our DT package this month was perfect to adorn the top of this Christmas ornament!

"Merry Christmas"

The card base is deep red cardstock matted with white pearl, embossed paper.  I used a folder that reminded me of falling snow as the background.  The ornament is a two part die-cut, the base and the over layer.   I added a gold jump ring at the top of the ornament along with a red/gold bow created with my amazing Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  Making bows is an easy task when using this tool. The sentiment sticker was another fun treat that came with our DT product.  It's matted with both white and gold paper cut with one of my favorite tag die-cuts.  I used pop dots on the back of the ornament and sentiment tag for added dimension.

I wanted a clean and simple card to highlight the elegant die cut word, "Peace".  The base of red cardstock is matted with corrugated, white glitter paper.  The green die cut tree is embellished with a few red sequins and a star at the top.  The sheer organza green bow was easy to make using my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool...always on my craft table.

Craft-Dee BowZ December Challenge/Magic Hat!

December is here already...the final month of 2014 and it's time for another challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ.

Our Design Team theme this month is Christmas/Holiday using the colors of red, green, gold and a multi loop bow.

This is a magical time of year and what could be more magical than a snowman, especially one that comes to life.  I remember watching the holiday shows as a child and Frosty was one of my favorite!

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose...

When I came across this black hat shaped basket, I knew it was going to become a magical piece of holiday decor.  I even found snowballs to fill the hat.  It already has a reserved place waiting!

I used both of my Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tools to create a large bow for the snowman's hat.   They are attached together with Velcro end to end.  A great and easy way to make larger bows!

The ribbon is soft and wool like...perfect for a snowman!

The finished multi loop bow with short tails is hot glued to the hat band.  I added a large snowflake, corncob pipe, and a sprig of artificial berries to complete the embellishing.
