My sweet stamping friend Debbie Angelle sent me the die cuts you see on my card. I put them together to create this card. I am posting it as a Thank You to Debbie.
Thanks Debbie, it was so kind of you to think of me. I love these die cuts! Thanks for sharing with me. <3 p="">

Below is my card. I used the set #1083 Light of the World from Sweet n Sassy Stamps. Love this inspirational set from Korin Sutherland.
The image was stamped with Memento Black. Then colored with my color pencils. The frame was a scrap of white cardstock with the gold design embossed into it. I used me dauber and my SU! Midnight Muse and Island Indigo ink pads to give is some color. Then I added rhinestones for embellishment. The sentiment is also from the Sweet n Sassy set.
These are the two cards I made. One is for Mother's Day and the other is for Father's Day. I wasn't able to be with my parents for either holiday so I mailed them. Mom called over the weekend to thank me. They loved their cards.
Recently my cousin, Pat asked me to create a card for her granddaughter Kaley. Pat told me Kaley likes horses and the color green. She also stated that Kaley was turning 17. So, as I pondered what I would create for Kaley's 17th birthday card, the wheels began to turn. I knew I wanted to wow both Pat and Kaley. So I immediately decided to stamp a scene. So I pulled out my mountain scene stamp from Stampscapes and stamped onto glossy cardstock (photo paper) with Memento Black. Then I added some trees from Stampscapes and Stampin' Up! The Mare and colt from Stampabilities was stamped onto a separate piece of glossy cardstock then cut out. Using the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up! I created a window. I colored the images with my Stampin' Up! markers and a dauber. Added highlights with a white gel pen. The dotted Ranger Liquid Pearls to make the flowers. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! The flowers are Petaloo. The card is interactive in that when you pull and push the side tabs the mare and the colt come together and the mare kisses the colts head.
This card was great fun creating. A labor of love.
My card was created using the Sweet Floral stamp from Stampin' Up! I stamped the image with Versa Mark and used Pan Pastels to smudge the colors. On top I place a die cut in shiny gold. I stamped the butterfly and colored it with my ColourArts Silks acrylic paints. Then went over it with my Wink of Stella. I love this clean and simple card!
If I'd have left the sentiment off, this would have been a perfect Mother's Day card!
Today I played with the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge #234. Very CAS. I love coloring with my Prisma Color Pencils so I had a go at the little bird from Stampin' Up! set #141291 Sale-A-Bration Honeycomb Happiness. I really love this little set. There are 3 images and 3 sentiments. I chose "Hang In There" for my sentiment. Just a little fun coloring on this Saturday afternoon.
Below is the sketch.
#NOTE -- to stamp my balloon to look as though my bird was holding it, tucked under his wing, I stamped the bird twice. Once on my card face and once on a piece of printer paper. I cut the bird out of the printer paper and used it as a mask. Then I stamped the balloon in place. Then I did all my coloring. Added a little white gel pen for some highlights.
This first card was created using a a CK card blank for the base. We used some fancy die cuts, rub ons and a butterfly sticker. Then we used the new Nuvo by Tonic Studios Crystal Drops to decorate the card.
We are in love with these!!!
Card designed by Deb Segler. Still using the Nuvos.
Another design by Deb Segler. I don't know the stamp set used. Only that it is Stampin' Up!

Monochromatic Mauve shimmer cs. This card is really fun to make. The dies are from Stampin' Up! Botanical Builder Framelits. To start you will need one sheet of 12 x 12 cs. Cut at 4.25" x 11". Score at 5 1/2" and fold. Set aside. Use the remaining cs to die cut 2 of each of the flowers and 2 of the frilly frond. Make your flowers. I adhered with dimensionals. Then I added the pearls from Stampin' Up! This would make a lovely Mother's Day card or even a sympathy card. You can choose any color cs to make this monochromatic card.
This is a really fun one! Stampin' Up! Sunburst Die with the Birthday Bouquet dsp. The stamps are Stampin' Up! Trust God and Pink Paislee Nantucket. The flowers were stamped in Versa Mark and heat embossed using Tangerine Tango eb powder.
Here's my entry for the Curtain Call Challenge which is Simplicity. Stamps are from Penny Black's Butterfly Party and Stampin' Up! Trust God.
I love the Penny Black set because there are 3 tag stamps in the package. Each is a little different butterfly on a different background.
The sentiments from this Stampin' Up! set just really fit when it's time for a little spiritual inspiration. To me butterflies are calming and the sentiments in the Trust God set, go so well with them.
My tag was stamped with Versa Mark onto a scrap of Brusho I made several months ago. Heated some white embossing powder. So a "found object" makes this one pds (pretty darn simple)!
So here is my entry in Color Throw Down #388 - blue, yellow and green. My color combo is Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green and Tempting Torquoise. The stamps are from Stampin' Up! as well, Over the Rainbow set. I tried to keep it as CAS as possible. The punches are from Fiskars.
Although I have been art journaling for several months now, I most recently stumbled upon the beautifully whimiscal work of Rach0113 on yountube. I love what she does!!!! Can't emphasize that nearly enough. You can find her here:
I did follow one of her tutorials very carefully. Then I flew off at my own pace with my own designs. I drew ALL -- both of the mushroom houses and the little umbrella by hand. Part of my Zentangle therapy.
So without further adue below is my journal page that I've been working on for the past 3 days. Hope you like it.
The words read "live gently upon this earth". Sorry its hard to read but on this project I used a lot of Colour Arte Silks Acrylic Glazes.
The set I have includes Blue Sky, Pretty Peridot, Jasmine, Spiced Pumpkin, Snap Dragon, Emperor's Gold. In the background the flowers (dots) are all dylusions paints : lemon zest, london blue, squeezed orange, and crushed grape. Clouds were stenciled in with dylusions white linen. The puffy dots are Tulip White Puffy Paint.
Vines and leaves are stenciled in with Stencil Ease stencil paste and the Natural Flourish stencil from Layers of Color. Then I painted over them with the Pretty Peridot Glaze.
