Cupid and the Bow-it-All v2.0!


Hello, hello!

I recently got a Bow-it-All v.2.0 and although I haven't got to experience everything this amazing tool has to offer, I have practiced an overflowing handful of bows and am in love :) It's definitely a must-have tool! It comes with a great instruction booklet and there are videos online and on their blog to help the visual learners of the world, like me, learn how to make all kinds of picture perfect bows. Stay tuned for more pictures, examples, and a blog review (I'll give you a hint...it gets two thumbs way up!)  

Of course I've been itching to put one of my bows on a card, so here it is, just in time for Valentine's Day :)  




I don't really have any cupid stamps so I went to my trusty computer and did a search. Tons of them popped up, but this one was so cute, I couldn't resist using her.  She was found on this website. I colored her with Copic markers and cut her out with a scalloped heart die. The background of the paper was made using generation stamping with red ink on a pretty font background stamp. I found some ribbon in my stash and used the handy, dandy and brilliant Bow-it-All v. 2.0 to make a double loop bow :) Lovely!

Supplies:
QuicKutz Nesting Lace Hearts
Copic Markers (R 17, 14, 12; E 000, 00, 02; T 0)
Ribbon from stash
Bow-It-All v 2.0
Neenah Solar White Cardstock
Memento Ink in Ladybug

Thanks for spending part of your day with me! I hope you have a great Valentine's Day!
