FREE April Thank You Card!

Am I late or am I late? I've had this card designed for quite some time but with all of the Stampin' Up! OnStage and new products, I was not able to squeeze it in my blog posts until now. This is the free Thank You card you will receive when placing an Online Order through my Online Store:



Once I stamped the tree stump image, I used my Aqua Painter to spread the ink from the inked lines. I also colored the heart using Flirty Flamingo Ink. I love the script of the sentiment:




Here are my card layers:
  • Card Base: Early Espresso Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4".
  • Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4'. Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Wood Textures Designer Paper 5" x 3". Glue to the top of the white layer with all 3 sides evenly spaced.
  • Ribbon: Glue a piece of the Flirty Flamingo Striped Ribbon in place even with the bottom of the Wood Textures Designer Paper. I used Tear & Tape to glue it in place.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment to the right and below the ribbon using Early Espresso Ink.
  • Tree Stump image: Stamp the image using Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Use an Aqua Painter to color with the inked lines. Color the heart using Flirty Flamingo Ink. Glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Leaves: Cut (1) leaf out of Vellum Cardstock and (2) each of Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White Cardstocks. Add glue and tuck them under the tree stump.
  • Bling: Add Rhinestone Jewels to the background.
When placing your order for April, make sure you use this hostess code if your order is between $50 - $149.99 and you'll earn some free goodies from me along with your free Thank You card!

3D Thursday and a FREE Project Sheet!


Hello Everyone! Welcome to a new project for 3D Thursday and this week it's my turn! I designed this cute little box that fits a gift card and I also included a coordinating 3" x 3" Mini Card:


As you can see in the photo below, the gift card fits nicely with some treats:



And the card fits inside also and you can slide the box inside the lid:



I used the Bow Builder Punch for the cute bow at the top of the tab:




And here's a close-up of the card:



As always, our team includes a FREE Project Sheet each week that you can print so you can create your own project. Here's mine for this week:

Three New Cards and Three New Videos!

Good Morning! This is going to be a post with lots of photos as I have 3 cards with 3 new videos to go with them. These videos are all from my Facebook Live Classes that I've done recently and I'm trying to catch up loading them to my blog and YouTube. The first card is a Faux Shadow Box Card. I created three versions to give participants in my class a choice of stamp sets so that they could follow along and stamp with me:



The Best Birds Stamp Set:


The Color Me Happy Stamp Set:


And the Petal Palette Stamp Set:


This is the inside of the card:


And here is my video to show you how to achieve the Faux Shadow Box in the center of the card. Depending on your electronic device, you may have to click on the link below the video:

My next card uses designer paper to make a cone holder for my flowers. I show you how to fold the designer paper to create this cute Mother's Day card:




Watch my video here to create a card just like this one!

For my final project, I received this Lip Balm Holder when I attendeded OnStage. It was a gift from Ellen Roy and again uses a small piece of designer paper. If you are a Craft Fair participant, these would make the cutest items to sell. And its also a great way to use up scraps of designer paper:

Grammy Learns Something New...The Fly Guy!

Back in March, I visited with my daughter Jessica and granddaughter Kaitlynn. I stayed for a week due to Jess being so close to going into labor with Kylee and her fiance being away for training for his job.  I didn't want my daughter being alone and we did a LOT of stuff! 

Kaitlynn was invited to a friends birthday party. A boy party. She wanted me to help her make a Fly Guy card. Grammy had never heard of the Fly Guy so Kaitlynn quickly ran off to get one of the gifts for this boy. It was a Fly Guy book. Okay.....so I had a photo to go by and we dug out some punches and a Cricut machine I had given my daughter to use for school projects.

The Fly Guy card was born......



And he looks pretty darn close to the photo on the cover of the book.



We even found a stuffed Fly Guys on Amazon to go by also:


......and yup, he looks just like the Fly Guy on the card:



We used googly eyes and the sentiment is from a past Paper Pumpkin stamp set:





I think the Fly Guy is so homely that he's super cute! What do you think? Kaitlynn reported back to me that her friend loved his card and book! And you never know what Grammy is going to learn from her grandkids do you? Thanks for visiting me today!

Merry Monday Challenge #287!




Welcome to a new challenge week at Merry Monday Challenge! This week our hostess is Colleen and our challenge is to use the inspiration photo above for our cards. I could not believe I had a piece of retired designer paper in a file folder that had these house images on it:



How perfect! I can't even tell you what the name of the designer paper pack is though. I added a few die-cut snowflakes and a die-cut heart in the bottom left-hand corner and created an Easel Card Fold:


Here's a close-up of the layered details. I tried to match the colors of the inspiration photo. I also added Rhinestone Jewels in the center of each snowflake for bling:



Thanks so much for visiting me today and please visit Merry Monday Challenge to view all of the projects by my teammates!

Three cards, Three Techniques & Three Videos!

I have been having a blast creating for my Facebook Live Classes and am trying to catch up posting them here on my blog. This is what I have going on with my classes:
  • Tuesday Techiques: First Tuesday of each month at 7 pm EST
  • Friday Folds: Last Friday of each month at 7 pm EST
  • Design With Debbie: Every Wednesday at 8 pm EST and I invite you to stamp along with me. I post a list of supplies you need on Sundays!
If you haven't "followed" and "liked" my business Facebook page yet, do so and you'll be notified of my classes:


I have three projects and three videos for you today.  All three projects feature "techniques" and you can find out more about each project by viewing my videos below or on YouTube.


My first card is called the "Black Ice Technique". I had to giggle when I saw the name of this technique. I live in Maine and we deal with black ice all winter long! Black ice is when the surface of the pavement looks wet and black but is actually iced over and VERY dangerous. Here's my card:





You can view my video here and if you can't get the video to work due to your electronic device, I have included the link below the video:







Card #2 uses the "Ink Refill Spritzed Background Technique" and yes, you guessed it....I used Ink Refills and I'll show you how in my video:







You can view the video here or click on the link:

For my final card, I used the "Spotlight in Multiples Technique". This sample is somewhat close to one I saw on Pinterest and I loved the multiple spotights:




And you can view this third video here:
