    What brand is SB when you use it in your instructions? Is it short for Spellbinders?

  2. Lesia says:

    I am in love with all your cards and very inspired by them. I do sometimes try to mimic your technique, but well let’s just say I’ll keep trying. What size paper do you use to create your card base? Your cards are very unusual and I have struggled trying to figure out what paper size to start with. Can you help me?

    The square cards are 7.5″ finished

    Beautiful cards. I note you use the grand squares/labels a lot, could you tell me how you manage to get the very fine gold/coloured layers between the main white layers as this looks finer than the 1/4″ that the dies cut? Thank you.

    Beautiful cards, just love them! Any chance you could do a tutorial on how you emboss your paper and still leave the embossed edge from the die?

  8. Chris says:

    Hi, I just found your blog through Pinterest and love the cards you’ve made. They are so elegant and stylish.

    I, too, would like to know how to emboss card and still leave the edges of the die cuts unembossed. I’ve been playing around with my Grand Calibur but just cannot find the correct sandwich.

    All the cards are so beautiful!

  10. Cherry says:

    Hello,
    A friend gave me the link to your site, I think your cards are stunning.

    Can you tell me whether some of the bottom mats and layers are raised up on foam pads? I can see that many of the top layers are raised, but not sure about the grand squares.
    Thanks, Cherry

  11. Pati Heller says:

    I too am wondering if you have a tutorial to show how you do the embossing. I love all white cards and I find your cards so stunning. Won’t you please share your technique or tell us if there is a tutorial out there that you have used? Thanks!

  12. Rebecca Cruz says:

    Your cards are amazing. ……where can I buy the tattered princess shoe/heel my youngest daughter is getting married and that look is perfect for her princess wedding

  13. Carol Carke says:

    Hi Debbie I look at your blog every morning and I am greatly inspired by your lovely cards. Can you please tell me what thickness of card do you use as it looks as if your use 8 layers with the gold.

  14. Carol Carke says:

    Hi Debbie I mean’t to ask which corner punch do you use on the Shoe Cards and bride card – and where can you get them from

  15. Marlene says:

    JUST FOUND YOU ON PINTEREST. YOUR CARDS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT COMPANY YOU GET THE DIES FROM. SUCH AS THE ONE WITH THE INTRICUT HIGH HEEL. THANKS

  16. Debbie your cards are so elegant Just wonderful Any chance of turorials

  17. Cindy says:

    I LOVE your cards, they are so beautifully designed. On your card ‘Baby Girl’ you stated the embossing folder you used was from NEC, I am new at card making and don’t know who the NEC refers to. Thanks Cindy

  18. Kay says:

    I too am a newbe but I do have some dies…You did a card “On Your Special Day” with a decorative oval that has cut-outs around it. Please tell me which die you used? That card is particularly beautiful. So glad I found you!

  19. Pat Larson says:

    Your cards are breathtaking in their beauty and your talent is truly wonderous. They cry “feel appeal.” Thank you sooo much for sharing.

  20. Lizzie, Titahi Bay, New Zealand says:

    Just found your blog, which led me further into your beautiful world of simply stunning creativity. I have recently retired and promised myself the time to indulge in my passion for cards and find your flair for design simply sensational. Thank you so much for sharing – it is such a pleasure to look forward to whatever you come up with next.

  21. Carol Burton says:

    Wonderful cards & flowers. Just wondered what card stock you use & what is the weight?

  22. Audre says:

    I am wondering if you could provide a website for Country Baskets. Their flowers are awesome! I’m new to your website and love your cards. Do you ever do any videos?

  23. Carol Leader says:

    Good morning. Love your cards!! Spellbinders puts a “border” around the outside of their dies, but you have a “border” on the inside. The square card today has one. How do you accomplish that? Thank you. Carol

  35. Linda Partch says:

    Was sent your lovely website by your friend Marsha. She told me your cards were awesome and she is so right. I met Marsha through her lovely Pergamano cards and she was here this summer to teach Pergamano to our club. So understand your addiction to cardmaking! You have in your gallery such a high number of dies that I have never seen before. Sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom, I lost mine in 2006 and it’s the hard to be without her. I think of her daily and pray she knows
    how much she is missed. Hugs! Linda

  36. Silvi says:

    Hello, dear Dawn, that’s my motto.
    Thank you very much from Silvi.

  37. Jen says:

    Hi, Can you please help me with the embossing sequence, do you emboss the paper first and then cut and emboss with a die cut? When I do it this way I loose some of the embossing on the paper but if I die cut and emboss the die opening first then I really lose that when I emboss the paper. Just wondering if you can shed some light on this. Thank you sooo much. Jen

    Hello Debbi, your cards are absolutely stunning. I would like to ask, do you make them as an opening card? so you can write inside them or not and do you make envelopes for them or boxes to put them in? Thank you, Elsa, in Australia.

    • debbi4000 says:

      Hi yes they are open cards, I use either envelopes of boxes.

Thank you for showing your beautiful cards and allowing people like me to view them and giving inspiration to card makers. Have a Happy Christmas and all the best for the coming year. Elsa Thoonen
