Steampunk Lady from my retreat

This is a card by my sweet friend Debbie A. She colored it with colic markers and I think it is just wonderful! We had such great time in Wylie at our stamp retreat and as always the time flew by too fast. If you have not tried copics they are so easy to blend and get colors you never dreamed!

Grass with new scissors ORDER YOURS NOW!

How totally fun is this card cut with the new stampin up scissors? The butterflies are on strips of hard plastic so they stand up and flutter when the card is open. You can add anything to the inside to fit your theme and card design. The scissors are so easy to use and are must have! email me for your pair today! debsegler@gmail.com .

Quick and Easy Yet Very Cool!

This look is so easy and you can give any card a different look by cutting your white card stock into three or more strips. Be creative and make them different sizes and shapes! Stamp the image and color it before you cut your shapes, then you leave a small space between them when you put them on the background color.  I like to use a pop dot to give the look some lift off the page!

Pop Up Die Cut Card

This project took some time but I am in love with die cuts that make a full scene. The banner is covering the cute Live Love and Laugh sign. It pops up when you open the card.  The die, cuts out the base card and tells you where to add the little decorative pieces. My friends went crazy over this card and really want to make some more.  Dig out your die cuts and make a new card this week! BE BLESSED!   DEBBIE

SPRING THING!

I really like this zentangle type of look on a card! This is several stamps cut out and put together.  I used pop dots to give the pieces dimension and layers. I hear you saying, I do not have any stamps like that! Well, again all you need is a couple of stamps with open space in the designs. Then you can stamp inside to give it a new design element, or doodle in your own designs! This type of art really brings out the artist in me, I like to use what I have to make something new and different.  Use a leaf stamp and add in your own squiggly line, or stamp with a paisley stamp, or even small hearts. I have you thinking now right? Please send me a picture of your new designs and remember I always send you a great surprise back! Have some SPRING FUN!

BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN!!!!! Free PRIZES!!!

Hello to all of my stamper friends! I am back in the saddle of stamping again.  I have had a long break due to my hip replacement surgery. I am doing well and still recovering!  And to get back in the swing I am posting several cards today, and a new contest!   To help you get motivated, and get me some new cards to copy I am giving away a great package of stamps, card stock, bling and markers! All new and ready for you to make some new spring things! What you need to do is mail me via snail mail Debbie Segler 14916 Riverside Drive Little Elm, Texas 75068, three finished cards that I can use to make some new things from!  That is easy enough right! Your cards need to be mailed to me and received by April 28th. I will pick the winner on that day and be sure to include your snail mail address so I can mail your prize if your the winner!  This card is one of my new stamps from the last stamp show I attended in Plano, Texas. I love windows and the stained glass really is fun to color.  We used copic and stampin- up markers to color this project. I have a sneaky way for you to make stained glass look if you do not have a stamp. I still can't get upstairs to my craft studio, but when I can I will use several small individual stamps to make my own stained glass design. You stamp three in a row to form a window shape like this card has, and then overlay a window die cut to give yours the window shape. I know you all have some little stamps that you can group together to design your windows! Please email me a picture of your designed stained glass window cards!~ debsegler@gmail.com
                                                        

A Lovely Story About Me One day, long, long ago , there lived a beautiful woman who did not whine, nag or bitch (That would be me...) But that was a long time ago and it was just that one day. The End
