A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME ...


Flowers just make me smile and this rose embossing folder can add so much to your project.  I know it is difficult to see but, across the top of the rose I have cut out the design and then stamped my sentiment in the corner under my cut out. I used chalks to color the roses with and then added the bling in the middle. It is very simple yet elegant card!  I hope your day is very blessed and take some time today to renew your faith and lift your spirits by giving someone a beautiful card you have made  yourself!

BUNCH OF FUN

Isn't this card the cutest thing and your going to love making it! This little punch is from you guessed it, stampin up! My stamp friend Betty designed it and I just can not tell you how much  everyone likes it.  The banners are punched out every other one, and then glued down the ones with designer paper

A Feather and Flower

I just love this new stampin up peacock stamp! I colored it with copic markers and added pearls to the center of each feather. They are difficult to see but in person it is just wonderful! The small yellow flowers and the lighter yellow spiral die cut added the right amount of accent colors to make the design flow together.  I know you need this stamp email me and I will order it for you! debsegler@gmail.com

Splish Splash!

This was a printable from my stamp friend Debbie.  She and I met at the copics certification class and we became instant friends! She brought this make and take to my house for a weekend sleep over retreat.  As you can see we had a blast making cards and we always manage to laugh and enjoy our time together! The yellow background was embossed and the black frame was die cut.  I colored with copics and then glued it over a ribbon band that matched the little lady bugs back.  We had some rain here this morning in Little Elm so I felt like this card was great to share today.  I am saying my morning prayers and counting my blessings, then off to unpack more in my new craft studio! I will post a picture when I am finished.

BUTTERFLY, BIRDS, AND BACKGROUNDS!

I love this fabulous flourishes background stamp from stamin up. I stamped it in black for the background and then placed the cut out of the bird.  I had a die cut spiral piece from my friend Debbie and added it over the top right side. Then the finishing touch was the little butterfly! This is your challenge of the week ! Make a card with all there things on it and send me a picture! I will post your card and send you a great surpise for participating! debsegler@gmail.com

Rose with a twist!

This is one of the make and takes from the meet up event I attend on Saturday. This is a beautiful stampinup stamp, ( stippled blossoms)  and we used the stampamajig, to help us line the second color over the top of the first design. I had used one a while back but had forgotten how this really takes the worry out of a two stamping process! Thanks to Angel for reteaching me this technique!  It is my daughter-in- laws birthday soon so I will give this card to her. I added the little spirals for the twist on my card! If you need some stampinup supplies let me know! debsegler@gmail.com.

Thanks A LATT E!

Thanks to the Crafting with the Heart meet up group! My stamp friend Lorna and I attend on Saturday and it was a blast! This is a great group of ladies and they were very friendly and made us feel so welcomed.  Several ladies brought things to share, and we made some very nice make and take cards! I will post some next. I hope to host this group soon, and continue stamping and crafting with these ladies!  This card is one that Betty and I made a while back but I just loved it, and want to make some more. I know all of you coffee fans like it too! Drink a cup while you play today! Blessings my friends!

Zentangel Design Card

I think the Zentangle doodling look is so cool! This card is a stamp and it makes the coloring extra fun for me.  Coloring is one of my best forms of therapy and I really love getting to choose all of the fun colors! I hear you saying, I don't have a stamp like this but you really do! Take a stamp with some larger empty spaces and use smaller stamps to fill in some designs or use a black pen and design your own! Send me your samples so I can post them! debsegler@gmail.com

Simply SAID AND MADE!~

This card is a very simple design and can be done with any sentiment you wish! I really like the clean and elegant design. The flowers are some retired stampinup papers that I just loved, and they have come out with so many pretty new ones. Let me know if you need to order some supplies! Happy stamping this week! debsegler@gmail.com
