Stained Glass Cross Easter Card

IMG_7992I have another Easter card for you today.  My Sister found this great stained glass paper at Michael’s and we both started to think of all the possibilities!  I used a Darice embossing folder for the background, it is kind of a vine type border.  The sentiment is heat embossed with Memento Grape Jelly ink and it is from My Sentiments Exactly.  I cut the stained glass paper with an oval die from Spellbinders.  The Cross is also from Spelbinders, Crosses Two, and I highlighted it with Memento Toffee Crunch ink and used dimensional adhesive to attach it to the oval.  I love how it turned out!  “Be Good!”  Debbie


Easter Joy

IMG_8001  Today, I have another Easter card for you.  First of all, I used the Taylored Expressions Walking on Sunshine embossing folder.  I embossed yellow paper and then lightly highlighted the embossing with Memento Cantaloupe ink.  The Easter Joy sentiment is from Impression Obsession  The Cross die is from Joy! Crafts.  I used a bit of Memento Toffee Crunch to highlight it.  I used dimensional adhesive to pop the Cross and a little pearl that I colored with my Copics to match the background paper.  Pretty easy to make, but I was really pleased with the results!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Easter Card using Leanne Creatif Dafodil


Hi!  I am working on Easter cards right now, so thought I would start sharing them with you.  This one uses the Leanne Creatif Daffodil die.  It makes beautiful and realistic flowers, in 2 different sizes and styles.  I cut the flowers from yellow paper and highlighted them with a bit of Memento Cantaloupe ink.  When I placed them on the background, I used some dimensional adhesive to make the flower petals pop.  The leaves were highlighted with Cottage Ivy.  The background is dry embossed with my Cuttlebug Wicker Weave folder.  The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly, and it is on a Spellbinders FancyTag.  I am anxiously waiting to see daffodils here, it has been a long and cold winter.   “Be Good!”  Debbie

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

IMG_7691  Happy St Patty’s Day!  When I was a little girl I so wanted to be Irish, (We are almost all German) so I got smart and married an Irishman!  Here is my card for you today.  The Celtic Cross is from Our Daily Bread designs, stamped in Northern Pine Memento ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.   I sponged just a little Northern Pine along the edges of the paper with the embossed cross The paper is from Reminisce from the Shamrock Collection, called Celtic Knot.  It is 2 sided paper and I used sides for contrast.  Have some corned beef and cabbage and have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

St Patrick’s Day Washi Tape Card


I am working on my St Patrick’s Day cards right now, and I have a cute one for you today.  This one uses Washi Tape, mostly from Queen and Co., a little is from Recollections also.  I love Washi, because it is so bright and fun, and can be used so many ways.  I just used strips of Washi and wrapped them around the edges of my paper.  The sentiment is from my stash, probably from Joann’s.  The rainbow and pot of gold are little dies from Taylored Expressions, and I think they add a great touch to the card.  Very easy to make, and I love the results!   “Be Good!”  Debbie

Thinking of You Card Using Penny Black Iris die


I have a friend from Church who is seriously ill, and I try to send her cards to let her know we are thinking of her.  This card uses the Penny Black Iris die.  I cut it once in purple and once in green, and shaded the edges of the flowers and stem with Memento Sweet Plum and  Northern Pine.  I cut the flowers  from the purple die cut and glued it onto the green piece that I had cut.  I added a pearl for the center and used a corner punch I had for the background edges.  The sentiment is from the Loving Messages set from Stampendous and I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  When I attached the flower, I used a bit of dimensional adhesive to give it a little pop.   Have a great day! “Be Good!”  Debbie
