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.

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!

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!
