Forever In Poodle Skirts


Hi there and welcome.  Today I am sharing another card I've made for the new release over at Angel's Hearts & Memories.  Today's image just reminds me of my mom so much when she was younger and cancer free. You are so missed mom.  I love you.

After I printed off Poodle Skirt Cristina and colored her using both prismacolor and copic markers, I sponged some Stampin Up! Bermuda Bay dye ink around her before layering then adding some white brads and prima flowers.  I created my card using some white pre-folded white card stock from Michael's and added a panel of  (NBUS - never before used stuff) "Mom's Diner" designer paper from my stash (think I bought from Michael's years ago).  The "Mom's Diner" designer paper was an impulse buy at one time and has sat waiting for the perfect image to pair it to.  Once the designer paper was adhered to the card, I sponged some more Stampin Up! Bermuda Bay ink around the edges before adding a matching "star" border using my Fiskars star punch, then added some aquamarine ribbon then my image panel.  The final touch was adding a forever charm clip then coloring the poodle on Cristina's skirt using a white gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and a safe Memorial Day weekend here in the States.

My second try writing this post since blogger ate the first one just as I was saving the finished copy.  Ugh!

Hello and welcome.  I would like to share a card made using Flapper Helen from the new release over at Angel's Hearts & Memories.  After I printed off the image onto white card stock and colored using both prismacolor and copic markers, I lightly stippled some Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the edges before layering and adding some silver baby brads.  Then I adhered a panel of Die Cuts With A View (DCWV) glitter stack designer paper onto a white pre-folded card.  Once that was done, I stamped a border using a long retired Stampin Up! set called Fresh Fillers onto a  basic grey scrap.  Once that was done, I adhered both the border and image panels to the card using glue dots before tying some silver cord around one side and adding two silver feather charms.  My final embellishments were pink glittered prima flowers, pink bling and coloring the pearl necklace using a white gel pen.

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:

I Love Rock N Roll...

 
..."put another dime in the jukebox baby".  Gotta love Pat Benatar.

Welcome everyone!!! This is my first blog post as a new design team member for Angel's Hearts and Memories.  The card I am sharing with you today is from this months release and the image is called Rock Star Molly.  I had SO much fun coloring her up while having Pat Benatar running through my head; hence the title above.

After I printed off Rock Star Molly onto white card stock and colored using both prismacolor and copic markers, I stippled some Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the edges of the image panel before layering then adding some music note brads I found in my stash.  I also decided to layer the card using some music note designer paper I found before adding a die cut musical score border then sponged some Tim Holtz broken china distress ink around the edges of the card to match Molly. Before I adhered my main image panel, I pulled out one of the music note brads then reattached it with some Prima flowers underneath.  The final touches were adding some die cut music notes and then the believe saying.

Ladybug Spring


Hello and again welcome.  Today I'm sharing a card I made using some NBUS (never before used stuff).  It's amazing what moving uncovers.

I started out by stamping my ladybug/saying stamp in memento tuxedo black onto white card stock then colored using prismacolor and copic markers.  Once the coloring was finished, I applied some light blue chalk over and around the image and saying.  Then I used my Marvy Uchida mega jumbo scalloped punch to punch the image out before sponging regal rose ink around the edges.  I then adhered the NBUS Echo Park Country Drive to the card before adding a border of K&Co fabric using glue dots then sponged regal rose ink around the card, then added a ribbon.  Once that was finished, I then added the image/saying using dimensionals. I then cut the ancho of a ladybug button off before adding that using pop up glue dots.  My final embellishments were crystal ice stickles and a floral spray I made using Martha Stewart punches.

Having Flies

Hi there!  My second post for today.  For my Festive Friday post, please scroll down one.  Thanks.

The second card I'm sharing with you uses a long retired Stampin Up! set called Frogs and Flies and was made for this week's Clean And Simple Frog challenge over at the Outlawz.  After stamping the main image and coloring with copic markers, I lightly spritzed a green galore marker using the Inkworks Color Spritzer tool before adding some green baby brads as my only embellishment.  Once the layered main image was adhered to the card using glue dots, I inked the edges of the card using memento cottage ivy dye ink.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.

Dear Santa...


Hello and welcome.  Today I am sharing a card I've made using the Stella Santa from Bugaboo Digital Stamps combined with a retired Stampin Up! background.

I started off by downloading then printing the Stella Santa Note onto white card stock then coloring using both prismacolor and copic markers.  Once my coloring was finished, I stippled some Tim Holtz broken china distress ink over and around the image before layering and adding brads.  Once my main image panel was finished, I stamped the retired  Holiday Print background from Stampin Up! in glorious green dye ink onto the card.  Once that was done, I punched a snowflake border from blue scrap card stock using a Martha Stewart snowflake embossing border punch before stippling ballet blue ink over it then adhered using micro glue dots.  Once my main image panel was adhered, I added some Prima poinsettia flowers and leaf before sponging glorious green dye ink around the edges of the card to finish it off.

The Eyes Of A Wolf


Hello and welcome to a new week.  I haven't been sleeping well the past few days thanks to pain, so I figured I'll try and take my mind off the pain and stamp something that doesn't require coloring.

I pulled out one of my favorite Stampin Up! sets, Wolf,  (long retired too) and try working with that.  I started out by taking the border stamp from the set and create my own background onto the card itself.  After finishing the background, I stamped the main image in Colorbox charcoal ink then lightly stippled basic grey and espresso ink over and around it before layering.  The only embellishment I added were black baby brads.  Once all of that was done, it was adhered using glue dots.  The sentiment is stamped out onto vanilla card stock scraps then punched out using an oval punch.  Once that was done, I lightly stippled basic grey ink around the saying before layering onto an oval layer.  I'm really happy with how this turned out especially with my lack of sleep.
