He is Risen Flourishes Easter Cards


I want to show you 2 Easter cards I made using the same stamp, but with different backgrounds.  The cross is  from the Flourishes set called He Is Risen.  These are the Copic colors I used in coloring the stamp:


I used Memento espresso truffle and clear embossing powder from Ranger to heat emboss the Alleluia.

The background paper is from Paper Studios and I added a bit of ribbon and a pearl embellishment.   The die set I used is narrow ovals from Lifestyle crafts.

This next card is more masculine:


I used the same colors and embossing , just changed the background paper, which was also from Paper Studio.
I will be trying to post some more Easter cards in the coming days.  “Be Good!” Debbie


Happy Spring!


Yay!  It is finally the first day of Spring!!  This card was inspired by some stickers that I saw at my local craft store.  The canning jar die is from Impression Obsession, the flower dies are from Taylored Expressions and Paper Smooches, and the ovals from Lifestyle Crafts.  The paper is Pretty Party from Crate Paper.  I stamped the for you in toffee crunch Memento ink.  Enjoy the day, warm weather hopefully is soon to follow!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Happy St Patrick’s Day


Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone!!!  This is a card I made for my sister.  I love vintage lace and I found this with shamrocks at a garage sale.  I tea dyed it and made it into a rosette.  The green ribbon is flocked and I embossed the fish tail with the Cuttlebug shamrock embossing folder.  I also cut the shamrock from the flocked ribbon with the Spring die from Paper Smooches.  I had to color the ribbon a little darker with my Copics, as it was a little bright and didn’t exactly match the paper.  The heart is a Maya Road trinket pin. The good luck tag is from Graphic 45.  May the road rise to meet you…   “Be Good!”  Debbie

St Patrick’s Day Card


When I was a little girl, I always wanted to be Irish (I had German on both sides.)  When I grew up I married an Irishman, so I had my wish!  Here is a St Patrick’s Day card I made.  The paper is from Recollections, the stamp is a dollar stamp from JoAnn Fabric I think.  The shamrock die is from Paper Smooches, the Spring die.  I cut 3 of them and scored them in the center, then glued the ends so they were 3 dimensional.  I used my Lawn Fawn journaling die for the background and a bit of green twine.  Hope you have a wonderful St Patrick’s Day!  I will be wearing my green, eating corned beef and cabbage and singing Irish songs!  “Be Good!” Debbie


UCF Birthday


I have twin nieces that have birthdays soon.  One is a Freshman at the University of Central Florida, so I decided to make her a card that has her school colors, mascot, etc. I used a color block cutting plate die from Taylored Expressions for the outline. UCF’s  mascot is a knight, and colors black and gold.  I used licensed paper for the UCF symbol.  The ballon die is from Joy crafts, I popped the black balloons and added a little twine.  The be happy sentiment is from My Favorite Things, and the word balloon from Paper Smooches. The hooray is from Lifestyle Crafts  and I used Mama Elephant confetti die for the stars.  The birthday sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  I think she will like it  “Be Good!”  Debbie
