Jig Like No One Is Watching

Hi everyone!  Just wanted to share with you a cute card that I made for the upcoming St Patrick’s Day!  The stamp is from Raisin Boat, Go For The Gold.  I colored the leprechaun using G 05, 07, and 17, his skin with E00 and E 01, his hair is YR 16, shoes are C07, and used a gold pen for his hat band.  The embossing folder I used for the background is from Darice.  The banner dies are from Impression Obsession.  I Stamped the sentiment in cottage ivy Memento ink.  I put Mr Leprechaun on a wobble spring so that he would dance!   I love him!  Be sure and keep watching for more St Patty’s Day cards!   “Be Good!”  Debbie


Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop


Happy Fall everyone!  It’s time for the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop a celebration of all things coffee, tea, and cocoa!

I have a fun card for my contribution today:

img_9820A cute little scarecrow friend!  I used a circle die to cut his head out, and used my circle punches for his cheeks and eyes.  His outfit and hat were just made up as I went along, and I used my fringe scissors to make the straw. His arm folds over the front to hold the cup.   The cute sentiment and cup  are from Taylored Expressions, called Joe to Go.   I used Memento Morrocan ink to stamp the sentiment.  The little sunflower is from Spellbinders and I used a circle punch for the center of the flower. I used gel pens for the stitching on his bib overalls, patch, smile,  and for the center of the sunflower.  The patterned paper is from the Heartland Farm collection by American Crafts.

Hope you enjoy my card!   Be sure to hop along on the bloghop and see all the talented contributors, the creativity is amazing!  Grab a cup of coffee while you are hopping too!  Thanks to Amy Tsuruta, the blog hostess, to the Design Team and to all the wonderful sponsors!   “Be Good!” Debbie


Christmas Card Preview – Merry Christmas by Clearly Besotted Stamps


Hi, I am back today with a fun card using Clearly Besotted Stamps.  The set is called Merry Kissmass.  It was a pretty simple card to make.  I stamped the mistletoe branch in Northern Pine Memento ink, and the sentiment is heat embossed with clear embossing powder in Memento Lady Bug.  All I did then was add the ribbon and the pearls for the mistletoe berries.  The sentiment inside is Merry Kissmass.  There are several cute sentiments in the set, along with a string and a ribbon stamp if you choose to use them.   Only 3 more days till Christmas!  Are you ready?  “Be Good!”  Debbie

You’re A Gem – Essentials by Ellen

IMG_7978  I have a thank you card for you today.  This one uses the Essentials by Ellen stamp and die set called “Hello Gorgeous.”    I used washi tape from Recollections (I loved this combination!) for the strips at the bottom.  I cut the gem out of metallic gold paper, which I also used for the background layer. The sentiment is stamped in Memento Rocket Red Brilliance ink.  You could also make this for a birthday also  or just a cute card for your favorite girl! (There are lots of fun sentiments in this set!)  Hope you have a good day!  “Be Good!”  Debbie
