Dance yourself silly

Welcome to the Scrapy Land Challenge #36. The theme for this challenge is Tie One On, include a bow. (die or ribbon) plus use any brand of low profile or steel ruled die Scrapy Land sells. Scrapy Land has over 40 brands of dies.  You can see them all here. Please link your project back to this Scrapy Land Challenge Blog.  It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project. The challenge closes on Sunday, Feb 28, giving the Designers time to choose the Winner and the Top Three.  The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to the Scrapy Land store. Please limit the number of entries to five. The image is from Art Impression called Dotty unmounted golden oldies UMU2778.
The card I made is a Bow Card. You can get the template from Sandra's Scrap Shop. The link is www.sandrasscrapshop.blogspot.com . #91: Bow card template. You can find all kinds of different templates for different kinds of cards. I have seen this card made at different blogs but all I have seen is the front view, I hope what I show you will show you how easy this card is to make. After I cut out all the pattern pieces. Burnished all the edges with distress ink color brushed corduroy and peacock feathers. Them I sewed around the bow edges and thought that turned out pretty good. The sentiment on the outside is from The Angel Company.
The paper I used is from The Angel Company called The Sands of Time. Added white Tulle in between the bows. These are the dies cuts used for the card. I want to make another one with some fancy designer paper that looks like ribbon. This one took a little longer because it was the first one but the next one should be pretty fast.

Spellbinders Die-Lit Tropical Flourish

Cherry Lynn Design Southern charm Valance

Cherry Lynn Design Tropical Flourish,
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Flutters S2-010

Spellbinders Classic Diamond die
This is a top view looking down into the card. Added some turquoise and white ribbon.
Here you can see the Cherry Lynn die better. I did have to cut it down a little to get it to fit. 
 This is how thick the card looks when it is finished so it will have to be put in a larger box/bag. I would not mail it, give it to someone you love. 
Love that Butterfly.
 Here is how the bottom looks. The way Dotty is dancing I wanted to add some sparkle so on the Tulle I put some Stickles colors shamrock, sea glass, crushed pineapple, cool mint and raspberry tart.
 This is the inside of the card. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
 These are the copic markers used to color the image.
 Here is a close up of the image. I paper pieced Dotty dress and panties.
 If you should stop by Sandra's shop and pick up the bow template and have any questions feel free to email me if you have any questions. Thanks so much for stopping by.
I would like to enter my card in these challenges

Sandy said...

Goodness gracious sakes alive, I don't think anyone could make anything fancier than this beauty. I am having a hard time holding my brains together as it is and if I tried something like this I would certainly loose the last bit of sense I have!

Kathy Krug said...

When I see your cards posted I am always thinking How did she do that. Amazing creation. Love all the details.

*Vicki* said...

Oh my what a really fun image and such an amazing design too!! :) I love you colors, papers and everything about this!!

Replying to your comment/question on my blog because I couldn't reply with your e-mail: The Elisabeth Bell e-mail was something separate from Whimsy Stamps I believe. I think you had to send her an e-mail and she would in return send you a link to an on-line "coloring e-book" or something? Not sure what you were referring to for sure, but if you want to see the new released stamps from her at Whimsy Stamps, you can see all Elisabeth Bell stamps here: http://www.whimsystamps.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=19_49

I came looking for this week's TT post, Pat, and found this instead. I saw this on Facebook, but the other views really show off how complex and beautiful this piece is. You're right though, not going into an envelope LOL!

Janet McLaughlin said...

Gorgeous project, Pat! It looks so complex, but you make it seem easy! I may try this!

Donna Ellis said...

Mind boggling! LOL I love the message with this image, and the fact that it is more than a card, but also a piece of home decor! A great centerpiece for a party - all that amazing stitching, Pat, and the pretty color combinations. The frilly die cuts, and butterflies dancing with the lady - it is all so beautifully put together! Fantastic creation, and one any friend would relish. I hope you are enjoying yourself and keeping warm with this crazy on and off weather! Thank you for once again inspiring me, and bring a big smile to my heart and mind! love, de
