Scene Cut Out

I made this scene card at Bettys and she had ordered the kit from the UK! It is so pretty and when held up to light looks like a light box.  I want to try to make some with my electric cutter too! Had to share this great design and thanks to Betty for the fun gift!

Let It Snow ... SNOWMAN

This card was my stamp friend Lorna's design she made for us, and it is just a blast to make and very easy. I stamped with white craft ink on the red card stock the snowflakes. We used a large circle punch for his head and cut a orange nose free hand. His eyes are black dots and his scarf is staminup ribbon. We added bling to the snowflakes centers and glued onto a navy card base.  I think this is a great card for guys too! 

No Botox Needed

This little bird is telling me to get my act together for Christmas! We are iced in and I have gotten my   tree decorated and working  on the cards to mail out! This bird has been printed twice and cut out and the pine cone and birds hat have pop dots under them for a 3-d look. I like the bright colors and hope you do too! Pick a card you want to make and stamp it twice so you can give your card a uplift with no botox!

Decorating for Christmas!

I must admit that this little card may be my favorite so far! I got these free stamps in a stamp magazine from the UK! I added the green netting to her skirt and we are ready to decorate for the Holidays! I like the bling and the layers on this card too.  When my card seems dull I just add a layer of something cut out and it it gives the punch it needs. I will be off to make another one as the sleet is falling and we are snuggled in for the day!

Christmas Bird with envelope

This beautiful bird card was part of a stampin up kit that was such a fun set to make! As I listen to the sleet on the windows this morning I am in the mood to snuggle into my craft room and create more fun cards.  I am giving them as pre Christmas gifs this year, a set of cards and a nice colored pen to my sweet friends! The tag is the main focal point and the bird and sentiment looks very  pretty as the accent on this card. Our new catty has the best tag punch ever in it so you get that perfect tag top every time! You can order from it in January!  The bakers twine and little button gives the special top to the tag!

SANTA IS COOL!

I just love anything with Santa on it and these cards are getting me in the Holiday Spirit! The circle is a die cut (spellbinders I think) and the designer paper is stampinup from last year. I love the Santa postage stamp, I just cut it out of designer paper, and then put it on with pop dots. The Santa  card below I made at Bettys and the Santa is a chip board cut out, we iced the tag and the Santa with brown ink to give a vintage look to the project.  The deck the halls sentiment and the music paper really brought the design all together. The bling and bow added the extra  touch to the finished card. 


ELF HOLLY JOLLY MAGIC!

I really do need some elf magic! I have been down in my back and will have a pain block on Tuesday so I may not be posting a regular as I should!  Keep me in your prayers please! I had to post these cute elf shoes and yes my stamp buddy Betty and I made these we just love them. The shoes are cut from the stampinup top note die. It is one of the most versatile die I have and I just use it as my go to, when I want to add something special to a card or scrapbook.  The stripped paper gives the added color for his stockings! The holly was fussy cut out of designer paper and then a little bling added to his shoes! If you do not have the die you can order from me! Have fun getting ready for Santa!

Swing in the Tree!

This little card really looks and feels like fall. To make the grass and ground you simply tear the designer paper to give it that up and down motion look.  Place the tree to back and on top of the hill. I used pearl stickles to add the leaves onto the tree. I stamped the tree in a dark brown.  Have fun.

Octagon Flowers

This card is very pleasing to the eye, because of the black checked designer paper. I used the stampin up octagon punch and then layered white card stock behind the black checked. I fit the pieces together to form a shape across the face of the card. I embossed the flowers with clear embossing powder and then cut them out , the first flower looks a little yellow in the center and that was just a sweet accident as the stamp had some yellow on it and it gave the flower a very nice center. The pearls were added to the center of the flower and the sentiment placed on the top completed the look. 

Partridge In A Pear Tree

I love any kind of birds and this card was right on the mark for me! I made this with my stamp friends and they all looked a little different. We used water color pencils and copic markers to color the tree and the bird.  Who doesn't like to color ?  I used a blender pen to blend the colors and then highlighted around the entire image with  a pale blue marker to give the design some depth and accent. The photo really does not show all of the beautiful detail.  I layered the design on top of three different designer papers and then onto a very vanilla card base. The red flower with bakers twine was added with glue dots.

WITCH SHOES TO BUY?

We have a cool front here this morning and the weather really feels like fall now, so this card is up to inspire your creative MOJO! I stamped this card with my stamp friend Betty! She has a great eye for design and color and we always have a few good laughs along the way when we get together to stamp!  We stamped the design twice and cut the circle and put it onto the card with pop dots. I love the green added for a big splash too. There are orange liquid pearls on the stars and this gives it one more accent. I love her shoes and made me want to go shoe shopping for sure!

Wreath for Holidays

This card was so much fun to make. I used a metal embossing plate and some paste to form the base of the card. The paste is a craft paste that gets hard after drying and holds it shape. You can find it at most craft stores. You ice the plate like your icing a cake filling the holes completely. I used a plastic  knife and then scraped all of the extra paste off and put it back into the jar before removing the metal embossing plate.  Lift the plate straight up and it leaves a raised design on your card or scrapbook page. Let dry about two hours. Then add stickles and bling for color, you can add stain, inks,or markers, for your design to have some accents.   You can also use stencils with this technique, I just love it and it is different  every time I make one. I added this green ribbon for the finishing touch.  This paste works great on ceramic tiles too!

OWL ARE YOU?

It seems the perfect time of year to have some owl card. This owl was my stamp friend Bettys new stamp and she loves OWLS! SHe has tried to get me to love them too, and we have some laughs over the many types of owls out there.  This little owl is sitting in front of a Halloween Moon and asking how are you all doing on your crating this week? The batty paper was some that she gave me and they added just the right trim for this owl to perch on. I am working on a order today for a dozen birthday party invitations so I am off to create. Have a blessed day!

Embossed Pink Flower

This is a stamp and embossing folder bundle that I really have enjoyed. The folder dry embosses the flowers and the stamp then lines up with the folder. I did this one a little differently by stamping the pink flowers and  cutting them out first.  I glued them over the embossed white card stock. There is a green print paper behind the design to add some color. The little butterfly was a cute sticker with some bling that a friend had given me.  This folder is a great one to ice inside with your stamp pad then emboss, and the paper grabs the color for a beautiful background.

Pumpkin Patch

With the cooler weather this morning the pumpkin card really makes it seem like fall! I used my stamp friend Betty's pumpkin stamp and some of her pretty papers to make this card. She always shares some goodies with me and it si very fun to have a few new things to CREATE WITH!  I colored the pumpkins with my stamin up water clots pencils and a blender pen.  They are both two of my favorite tools! The pencils are soft leaded and blend  to look like water colors! ANd who doesn't like to color? It is very relaxing and good therapy! The light scallop circle is a punch and I placed it behind the design to add layers of color and texture. There is some glitter pen outlines on the pumpkins that doesn't show well in the phot but it really gave the design a little pop of added color.

Window box flowers

Hey creative design friends! This is a window stamp and die cut. I have been buying windows, and furniture things lately and finally got one made.  The background is the technique that I wanted to share with you today.  It is so fun and easy to make, and I know you will design some great things with this, and do not forget, for you scrappers this is a great one for your scrap pages too! You will need several different colored ink pads and some masking tape. ( like the kind painters use)  Take the size of tape you want to add color to your surface, and press it down onto the ink pad and rub lightly with your fingers, so it will pick up a good amount of color.  Do not get upset if the color is not uniform cause that is what gives the CHARACTER to your project. Try black and dark purple for your Halloween projects too!  Lay the inked tape onto your paper and press it down lightly on this card I use four stripes slanted from the to down. I even used the tape again, re-inked it and pressed it down over the color to make it darker and longer down my card.  I cut out my stamped design and added it  over the top of the background I had created with the tape.  This is so fun and you can come up with many creative ways to use this technique! Here are some tips:  1: Use different widths and length of tapes, they do not have to match! 2: Tear the tape on the sides and ends and leave the uneven edges to give texture to your project, 3: crumble tape before adding the ink, gives it creases and very different look!  Send me a picture of your project and some windows, furniture or doors stamped for me to use and I will send you
a FREE surprise! Debbie Segler 14916 Riverside Drive Little Elm, Texas 75068 have fun!

Blessed By all For Fall!

I am off to the Women Of Faith event with my sweet friends and I am so excited to enjoy the fellowship and spiritual uplifting from this! We are also being blessed by a wonderful and much needed rain today, so it is cool and feels wonderful! This card makes me think of pumpkin pie and getting ready for warm cozy meals at home with family! I embossed the yellow card stock with the new stampin up words folder.  I colored my image with copics and water color pencils.  I like to mix these together to get the look I want~! The picture is a little light but the colors on the card are bright and vibrant! Hope this card inspires some of you to do some stamping or scrapbooking today, and count your BLESSINGS!

HEAVEN KNOWS YOUR SPECIAL! at Hots Retreat at Rocking R

I was so lucky to have attended a retreat this weekend and had such a wonderful time. My friend Freddie Heuss, invited me and we could not have enjoyed a better time together. She is very talented and we share our supplies, designs, food and laughter!  When I arrived a new friend Tersa Nickleson,  helped me to unload my car. Then another new friend Tina Jennings loaded all of my bags in my car for me to go home! My arthritis was giving me fits so these sweet ladies all helped me to be able to relax and enjoy the weekend! Thanks to you all, for blessing me with your acts of kindness! This is my butterfly card that I made at the retreat! The picture is a little light but the card really fits all of these
 "SPECIAL  LADIES" !!!
I colored this card with my copics and add it onto an embossed backing paper.  The sentiment was a hand cut banner. This group has retreats and donates the money they make to charities! I will let you know about the next one so you can join us!

Rocking R Retreat Bird Card

Hello stamp friends! I have not posted in a while just been doing my thing.  This watering can stamp is so pretty and I have really enjoyed coloring it with my copic markers.  I first embossed the white card stock background, with a dry embossing folder, that I had added color straight from my stamp pad to the folder.  The raised side of the folder. Then I ran it through the big shot to emboss. The ink grabs onto the design and gives a pretty shade to the design. Try lots of colors and even use several colors on one folder! It can change the whole look of your project. And for you scrapbookers this is a wonderful background to place a photo over on your pages.  I promised my scrapbooker friends that I would try to give them more scrapbook tips so that is the one for this post!  I colored the can and birds then fussy cut it out before adding it onto the background. Hope it inspires you to try a new technique! Remember if you mail me a card sample I will send you a sweet surprise in the mail, and post your card to my blog!

White Embossed Lacy Doily

This card was a quick and easy technique. I had a stamp friend ask me about it so I wanted to show you, as you can make so many pretty styles with this technique.  Pick a stamp with detail and a medium to a large size works best.  Emboss with white embossing powder on colored card stock or designer paper. Then use your sponge daubers to color the design, I used two colors on this one. Three colors also look nice. The back ground colors will shine through, as well as what colors you add. You can also mix stamps and emboss more than one design.  This technique gives the card some texture and color variety. Send me your pictures and make a special card today!

Window Card Winner! Betty!!

Oh My Goodness! This window card was a challenge a while back and Betty Schaub really out did herself on this one! She die cut two windows and put them together, she use the stampin up top note as her base for the card and she and she antiqued with white craft ink and it just turned out gorgeous! She added punched flowers and a little red bird to the card window and it really makes a great focal point on the card.  She won a free stamp set from the Holiday catty!  She can fly with the best of the stampers for sure! Thanks Betty for your great window card! Ok it is your turn design a window card and get it int he mail to me soon! You might win a prize too!

Listen and you can hear the flutter of wings!

This humming bird reminds me of my sweet mother in law that has gone to be with the Lord, Mary Lake or Mama Lake as we called her!  She gave me many gifts of love over the years and one of them was the love of birds! She lived in Rockport Texas and humming birds migrated there and she would have at least a dozen feeders in her yard. She would often wake me early in the morning while the house was still quiet, with a cup of fresh coffee in her hand! We would sit on the patio looking over the bay and watch the humming birds find the bright red feeders. She taught me to sit quietly and listen in a very noise filled, and fast paced world! You could really hear their little wings fluttering around the feeders!  It has now become my morning ritual to sit outside and enjoy the birds and nature, say my morning prayers, and remember the love and great times she shared with me and my family! Always remember to make time for silence, clear your head and count your blessings!
This card was colored with copic markers.  I free hand cut the bird and flowers out and glued them on my card.  I used a border punch on the edge of the designer paper on the inside of the card. (hard to see) I glued a small strip of paper that was left from my punch, cause I just could not throw it away! Your challenge today if you should take it is to make a card based on a happy memory! Send me a picture!

Black Magic Painting

Do you love to paint? I sure do and this technique is so fun on black card stock.  I enjoy the relaxed feeling I get from painting. This is a water based pearl paint and it comes in beautiful colors. The more detail the more fun to paint.  First you emboss with gold the stamped design, then you paint with the pearl paint. You can stamp on different colors but the darker the card stock the more your design will pop with color! Have fun! 

I See You!


This card was a quick and easy card to make and the colored washi tape is a blast to design with. I made this card at a play day with Betty my stamp buddy! We always have fun and seem to run out of time to stamp.  Try to use at least three different tapes and make your design on your card front. I also put some tape  on the inside to give it some color.

Smell the Roses!

Hello stamp friends! I have been out of town and enjoying my sweet honey home for the summer.  This card is one I made with stamp friend Betty, and we loved this designer paper.  We cut the roses out and layered them onto the card, using the same paper as the background. It was quick and easy! Then we finished it off with the gold twine, and cut out faith sentiment.
