Something fun for Everyone! Blog Candy When you order form new Stampin up Catty! cards

I love to add many layers to cards and this one has several. I used designer papers on the left a right side of the card base and placed them vertically. Leave just a small frame of the dark green card so you can see the color.  The two vertical pieces in red were cut out of the designer paper and glued almost to the bottom of the card. The butterfly was stamped and colored with markers then the sentiment was added cut from a punch. 

I am having a new stampin up catalogue surprise kick off!!! When you order $40.00 or more I will send you a free new stampin up product from the new catalogue !!! Just go on line to stampinup.com and look at the great new products and email me your order! debsegler@gmail.com.  I will contact you and complete the order! 

 I have really missed stamping scenes! This one was done on shinny paper and I used chalk inks to color with. This type of technique makes me feel like I am paining a canvas.  I think the moon light reflected in the water turned out really well!
This card has several layers of color and designer paper.  I like that it is simple but has a very nice design. You could stamp any type of flowers then color it to match  the designer paper you have on hand. There are so many beautiful new paper designs in the new catty!

This is a variety of cards for you today that I found as a surprise on my computer this morning! Sometimes I save card photos and they just disappear! Like magic this bunch of cards were there when I opened my computer this morning! I have a computer Ghost that plays tricks on me so that I can get frustrated and feel silly! HA!  The butterfly was colored on photo paper! I like using photo paper for a different look but you have to experiment as to which markers, and inks will work best. The photo paper grabs the ink quickly and it is difficult to blend, so you need a oily based ink or pencil for best results.  I have found some oil based colored pencils from Japan and I just love them, and they work on a variety of card stock. I like to use the chalk ink pads,(small diamond shaped) and I apply them straight from the container, then blend with a medium.

This card uses a magazine picture for the background in the window, It had lots of grass and flowers on it, so I cut it out and placed it behind the window die cut. The little blue bird was a sticker. 

This bird is a stampin up stamp and very flexible to use on  many designs! The embossed white paper gives it another texture and I like using several on one card. 

This is another stamping up set and it is a blast to color. I made a larger card and you can really get the full design on one this size.  

This card is so beautiful in person and my picture is not a good one, but it was colored with copics and then placed under the die cut frame.  

This is a special fold that I  added just for your fun thing to try this week. It takes a full sheet of card stock to cut from. 

I love to design scenes and this is on shinny paper and colored with the oil based inks, and chalk inks. 

This butterfly is a stampin up die cut and the fold is avery easy one that really adds to the look of the card by using double sided paper. Have some fun stamping this week send me pictures to share! debsegler@gmail.com

Little Girls With Nanny!

I found this sweet picture of my little girls at Christmas and just had to share the wonderful little blessings in my life!  They have all changed so much and their little personalities have gotten even better! Thanks Lord for the special gifts of Love you give us! 

Today I am posting a variety of cards to just give you some inspiration and ideas! This die cut card was designed by my stamp friend Debbie! We love to use die cuts and we have great therapy sessions when we get together to stamp and fellowship! We often spend part of the time laughing, sharing about our lives and getting our praise on! The card has an inside pocket to drop a note or gift card inside. 

This card was such a fun one to make and I love special folds for my cards. The card has flaps so that the card opens up like a box top. There are several flaps inside to decorate and a place to leave a great note to someone special. 

 This flower card was designed by Betty she loves the color green and we used an embossing folder to make the base of the card. The flower was placed on the top of the ribbon and the bright colors really worked together!
Tangling on cards is so very relaxing and this card was done using a stamp. The fun of stamping and then tangling inside is a great way to combine techniques. 

Children stamped and colored with copic markers, Then placed on bright designer papers. 

Birds and flowers stamped and colored with markers and colored pencils. Then cut out with die and placed on card front .  The new stampin up catty will be ready to order from June first. I you want to have a catalogue please email me debsegler@gmail.com 
Happy Stamping!
