Sheltering Tree Refection Techniqe & Video and Twist Turn Card Fold & Video!

Hello and Happy Friday! I've got two projects and two videos for you today! Both videos are from two past Live Facebook Classes I held a few weeks ago. This first project uses the Reflection Technique with the Sheltering Tree stamp set:



I show you this technique in my video. I love how the reflection sits at an angle:


I even added the bicycle in there as a reflection too!


You can watch my video below, or if your electronic device does not allow you, click on the clickable link below the video:




My next project features the Twist Turn Card Fold. Isn't this a neat card? Thanks to Rebecca Bullock who is part of my team and sent me a card with this fold that prompted me to make one!





This is the inside:


Fully open to show you all the scored and folded sections:

3D Thursday and FREE Project Sheet!

 

Good Morning and welcome to a new Thursday which means a new project from our weekly 3D Thursday team. This week, it's Twila's turn and she created this beautiful wreath just in time for the 4th of July:




I love that Twila created this in red, white & blue with a little touch of glimmer and SPARKLERS! How genius is that? Just don't light them on fire!



This is what the wreath looks like hung up on a door. Isn't it so festive and patriotic looking?


And now for our FREE PROJECT SHEET! You can click on the link below:

June Club Projects!

w

Good morning and I hope I will inspire you today with two projects from my June Clubs. The June Club was all about coloring this month. I showed the girls how to color with our Stampin' Write Markers on one card and our Stampin' Blends on the other card. Before I show you individual photo's, our club just complete a six month period and we are starting a new one from July to December. I need two more people to fill one of my clubs. What is a club?
  • We gather once a month to create together. Local and non-locals are welcomed to join in. If you are not local, I mail you two to three projects that we create by mail.
  • With a six-person club and a six-month period, each person gets to be hostess one month out of those six months.
  • For your hostess month, you will earn Hostess Rewards on all sales.
  • You can take outside orders to help with your Hostess month sales.
  • You are eligible to earn Hostess sets from the catalog on your Hostess month.
  • All that is required of you is a $25 order each month.
Are you in? Contact me to let me know!


The first card uses the Lilypad Lake stamp set and coordinating Lakeside Framelits Dies:



I showed the girls how to add shading to the images with our Stampin' Blends markers:


Project #2 uses a few new products:

  • Pearlized Doilies
  • Lovely Floral Embossing Folder
  • Accented Blooms stamp set

For this card, I showed how to "flick" the Stampin' Write Markers to add color and to also leave some white space:



And a close-up of the embossing:

Control Freaks June Blog Hop!


Hi Everyone and welcome to my 2nd post of the day! Tonight I created two projects for the June Control Freaks Blog Hop. You may have started the hop with me or you may have arrived here after visiting my teammate Kelly Acheson's blog. Didn't she have some awesome projects? You'll see lots more inspiration from our team.


Now for my projects. I used some pretty neat colors on both of my cards for the hop:

Painted Harvest Multi-Layered Card & Video!

Before I show you my post for today, please check out my retired Stampin' Up! items for sale here on my blog. You can find them all listed at the very top of my blog on the Used Stamps For Sale tab.


Good Morning! I wanted to start off my post today, with a photo of what I usually post on Sunday's on my Facebook page. The photo above shows viewers what to bring with them to my Design With Debbie Facebook Live Classes. This is a Live Class that I host every Wednesday at 8 pm eastern time. Anyone is invited to come stamp with me. This was the card I created with everyone a few weeks ago:



I create one card ahead of time to show at the beginning of my video and I create the 2nd card during the video:



The stamp set I used for this card was Painted Harvest and I also used the Ecllipse Technique to cut out a square using the Stitched Shapes Dies in the center:



All of the stamping was completed first and then the square was cut out and glued back in place using Stampin' Dimensionals:



I also stamped a few leaves on scrap cardstock and cut them out with the Leaf Punch. I completed my card by coloring the now retired White Perfect Accents with a Daffodil Blends Marker:



You can view my video here to complete a card just like this one. If your electronic device doesn't allow you to view it from here on my blog, you can click on the link below my video:

Merry Monday Challenge #295!


Welcome to a new challenge week at Merry Monday Challenge! This week our hostess is Marcia and we have an inspiration photo to use for our challenge. I had fun with this card and adding layer upon layer to resemble the photo:




I didn't have any peppermint candies to add to my mason jars so I used a stamp image with some detail and cut out a bunch of circles using a 1/2" Circle Punch. I then sponged the ink color on the outside of each circle. I think it works?


There are so many details, the bows, the mason jars, the lids, the candies, the evergreen sprigs and the red pearls. It all came together so nicely layered over a layer of Wood Textures Designer Paper!


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

Happy Father's Day to my Dad in Heaven!



Aww, here's a photo of me and my Dad. I miss him so much. I'm still not used to him being gone. It's been 16 months now and with Dave and I living almost 2 hours away from my parents, it still feels like he's there, home with my Mom and we will see him next time we go visit. Of course that's not true but it still feels so surreal. Happy Father's Day in Heaven Dad!




When the May Paper Pumpkin arrived last month, I created an alternative card with the kit especially for my Dad. Even though he's not with us any longer, I will always make a card for him for Father's Day each year.



If you are a Dad, Happy Father's Day. If your Dad is still here on earth with you, call him or visit him to wish him a Happy Father's Day and tell him I said Hi!

Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. This week we are all creating a project featuring our favorite new catalog bundle. I fell in love with all the the embossed stitching in the Stitched All Around stamp set and coordinating Stitched Labels Dies.
