Deck you tree!

The tree above is covered in red birds and it reminds me our "MAMA LAKE" and Christmas past! She loved birds and trees and all kinds of nature and taught me to look beyond the surface of many things. SHe made our Christmas time very special and focused on Family! I wish that type of Merry Christmas for all of my stamp friends and family. The birds have red stickle, or glitter on them and it gives them a place of focus on your card. I saw this next tree in Austin Archivers. If you have never been there it is a must, lots of supplies and inspiration. I love to make all kinds of trees and this one is very easy. Use your
border punches or your fancy cut scissors and just have a blast mixing the cuts on your tree use a variety of colors and print sin your paper. Have fun.Publish Post

Happy Holidays!

This is the new stocking punch and stamp set. The background is embossed with a folder and it gives it that extra punch to your card.
This card is one I made for my swap card for my stamp friend Betty's group. We have so much fun and get to share with the friends in our group and get a new card each month. Do you a want to join us? Just send me and email and we will add you in lots of fun and inspiration! debsegler@gmail.com
This card is quick and easy yet so beautiful. The ribbon is the new cherry cobbler that matches our card stock. That is why I love our color combinations as they all are made to match so no worries of having the wrong die lot to deal with!

JINGLE ALL THE WAY!

This card was first embossed with the snowflake folder on white card stock. The cute snowman was stamped in black and colored with our wonderful markers. One end is a fine writing or outline tip and the other end is a paint brush tip for larger area to color. I bought my first set of markers over 8 years ago and they are still good. When coloring on your stamp just be sure that you use the side of the marker not the tip and it will last much longer! I enjoy coloring with the markers as it gives a variety of colors on your project. I also like to emboss my main stamped image in clear or white then when you color you have the raised image to help you stay in the lines and it gives your image a little more dimension and variety to you the project.

There is a shadow on the wreath card but I wanted to show you how beautiful the new pewter embossing powder is and it is so bright and beautiful this really doesn't do it justice! The background was embossed with a folder and then the small ribbon attached to the top of the wreath. This card is quick, easy and still very elegant! This next card was made with my cutting machine, I am getting better at using it and I love to use all of the supplies together to get such a different look.

OH CHRISTMAS TREE!

This card is from my stamp friend Denise. She shared some of her designs with me so I have to show it off! You stamp your design on the base card stock then cut it apart into equal size. Then glue it to the brown base to give the look of a window. The background has been embossed with the snowflake folder. Then the sentiment and ribbon in turquoise just adds the special touch to this beautiful tree scene!
This card is so cute and was a blast to make. My stampin friend Betty and I made these and as always had fun while we worked. This is a type of pop up card and the trees have card stock legs glued behind them to hold them up when the card opens. I just ordered the snowflake punch so that I can add them to the next cards!

Sunny and Cold!



Hello stamp friends! I have been out of town again and have missed visiting with you.  The first card is a very fun pop up made with the help of my stamp friend Betty. It is a very easy way to make a "POP UP" card. The base of the card is scored and folded as if making a box top and then slits are cut to insert the "legs" of each stamped image to hold it up under the base or stage.  The snow on the front is an added piece of torn card stock to look like a bank of  snow.  The next Christmas tree card is made with a spellbinder to cut out the striped shape, the red solid base was embossed with the polka dot embossing folder.  A glue stick was used to place glitter on the star and tree ornaments, they do not show well in this picture.  The strawberry was embossed with the polka dot embossing folder also as were the leaves and stem. The leaves and stem are stamps from the vintage bird set. The white ribbon is the new doily punch, which I just love and you can have one too so just call me or email me to order 979-255-0377 or debsegler@gmail.com.

CAN YOU HEAR THE WIND?



Wow woke this morning to rain and high wind! Needed the rain and the cool feels great! So up to my stampin nest to snuggle in and play.  These cards today give you a variety of techniques to try.  Ribbon flowers are so fun and easy to add to your projects.  These were put on with sticky tape.  You can use the full page of sticky paper to punch out your flower and add ribbon or glitter. Try all kinds of things even buttons! The birthday card is fun and you use a marker to highlight one of the words to give an additional focal point! Use your creativity and make a focal point on your card by highlighting a stamped image too! The Christmas card uses the polka dot embossing folder, and die cuts to get the layered look. I love many layers on my cards!  I am hosting a stampin Divas two day retreat at my home on October 26, and 27th.  We will do a shoe box swap, and our focus will be fall and Christmas cards and projects!
The fee is $30.00 per day and it starts at 10:00 in the morning and runs till 10:00 at night. You can attend as much as you have time for. You may bring your own supplies and leave your things at your spot for the next days events!  We will share a pot luck so bring a great snack and come and join the fun! RSVP 979-255-0377! Let me know if you have any questions.

Shades of Blue!



Blue was the color of today and not because I am sad! Just picked these for today! The first card was edged in white gel marker to give it the look of being stitched.  The next card was stamped on velum, and then flipped over to cover the stamped image on the card stock.  The last card background was embossed with a folder, and then layered over designer paper.  Each card has some pearls and bling and ribbon to add the final touch to the blue cards.  I am having a special this month! Host a show in October and earn $15.00 free gift of your choice, on top of the standard hostess gifts! It can even be a catalogue show! Call me 979-255-0377 Thanks Debbie

TRICKS FOR MAKING TREATS!




It is time to get ready for Halloween and goodies to send to school! The first treat was done for Easter but could easily be changed to a Halloween or Birthday treat holder!  It was cut with our cone die and you can just go crazy designing cute things from this die cut.  The cat is a cute way to use several circle punches, or die cuts and form a treat box. Take your Halloween designer paper and cut a square the size of your circles, score each circle 1/4 inch to form the fold to glue onto your square base.  Add a decorative cut oval to the outside of the box, and decorate the inside as well. The ribbon is used to close the treat box, and hold what ever you add for the treat inside. The next picture shows the open version and where the candy or gift card can go! I can see Starbucks cards here for my friends and for office workers. Just add money for me so I can order more stamps! LOL!  The next treats were Easter bunny treats, but can you see them Owls, Pumpkins and Cats for Halloween?  So, here is your home work,
 ( yes I was teacher!) design your Halloween treat bag or card, using the top note die cut or any you have on hand and send me a picture to add to my blog to show others!  I would love a sample, so send me one to Debbie Segler 14916 Riverside Drive Little Elm, Texas 75068 thanks for sharing your art work with me and I will pick a winner and send some fun treats as a "THANK YOU!"

Pretty In Pink!



Need a quick and easy gift?  This pink bracelet was so fun and easy to make. You can use the pre-made flowers in the catalogue or find your own. These were white and were dyed with reinkers.  Then we hand sewed them to the bracelet from stampin up.  The next card is cut with a die cut, stamped and colored with water color pencils. The borders are punched from designer paper.  The last card was embossed with a folder.  I stamped and punched the flowers and added them to the white background, cut with the top note. Very pretty in pink!

Cool weather and cool designs!



It is a beautiful cool morning, and I am spending the next couple of days organizing my studio! And yes it really needs it! I still have unpacked bags from my out of town retreat and lots of things that I have used that need to be put back in their special places! I am counting my blessings this morning and hope you are too! I know that we all have trials in our lives each day but if we look around we are so much better off than lots of people! I spend each morning thanking God for of all of my friends and family and that includes you! I love this black and yellow card.  I used the stampin up Bliss set. I used sticky tape to get the ribbon to pleat, and it gives the card a very soft and different look.  The tissue paper card is so fun to make.  My pictures does not give it justice as the flower has been stamped with red backgrounds that do not show up here. The flower is cut with a stampin up die cut and it can be cut from a variety of papers and fabrics! I like to save some of the brown paper that comes in our boxes of orders. Yes I save everything too! The paper is all wrinkled and it looks great on your cards and scrapbook pages. So save some too!  The Christmas card is simple and classy! I am getting in the mood for the Holidays!

Water and reflection!



The water scene was done using a brayer.  Betty is teaching me this technique. It is very fun and appeals to my more artistic side and reminds me of canvas painting classes.  We made the first island with dark colors then put some water between and flipped the card to make a mirror image to give the look of a reflection.  We masked the moon with a sticky note and then added some dark smokey lines across the moon. The trick with the brayer is to not pick the brayer up on your piece of art work  as it leaves a line. Move the paper with your left hand as you run the brayer with your right. Move the brayer on and completely off your design. I think this is a great and fun way to get a different look. Try this with your halloween projects it makes it look SPOOKY!  The fluffy flower is made by using felt or fabric to form the flower.  Cut the fabric to the with you want your flower to be, then sew wrong sides together. We used a hand needle and thread for this one.  Cut up to the sewn edge but not through the thread, you may make your cuts as thin or wide as you like. This felt was multi colored so it made a nice flower! We use crystal effects and then glued the flower to a circle punched background to help us form our flower shape.  The next card is made with our new three in one flower punch.  The bird was embossed in white and it gave the special pop to the project.  We were blessed with cooler weather and rain today so enjoy your weekend and create something beautiful!

SMELL THE ROSES!!

This has been a very difficult time for Rusty and I and we are trying so hard to search out and see every blessing everyday! His mother Mam...
