Snow Much Fun



Today I'd like to share a card I made using Snow Girl Sandra for the October release over at A and M Memories and for a couple of challenges this week.

After printing off the image onto white card stock, I then colored her using both prismacolor and copic markers before stippling some Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the edges then layering.  Once the layering was finished, I added some silver brads and a snowflake charm.  I then adhered some Basic Grey Figgy designer paper to add to my card before adding the image panel using pop dots for added dimension.  The finishing touch was a small red bow.

Challenges entered:

Wishing You A Very Merry Christmas


Ho Ho Ho and welcome!!!!  It's release day at A and M Memories and we are sharing our Christmas card inspirations with you.  In some parts of the country it's already beginning to look like Christmas snow-wise.  Here, in my "neck" of the country, we're still dealing with fire season.  While I'm praying for the safety of everyone (including firefighters and animals) in the fires path, I would really love to see some rain or snow, just to help the firefighting efforts and California's drought issues.

However, today I would like to share with you a Christmas card I've made using Mrs Claus from A and M Memories.  After printing my image out and coloring using both prismacolor and copic markers, I sponged some Stampin Up! burgundy ink around the edges then layered.  Since I wanted to keep the focus of the card on the image panel, I used only brads and a small red bow for embellishments and placed the layered image at an angle.  As an afterthought, I spritzed some glorious green marker over the colored image and used a silver glaze pen to highlight the belt buckle.

Now head on over to A and M Memories to snatch her up and all of the other fabulous printables in the shop.  Use the code BONNIER15 (it is case sensitive) to receive a 15% discount on your entire purchase.  Also come join us in the A and M Memories Facebook group for more inspiration and fun.

Live Long.....


Hello and welcome!  It's been a while since I've posted due to my migraines, but I'm trying to get back on track again.

Today I'd like to share with you a card I made using Interstellar Toni from A & M Memories Designs.  When I first saw the image, I immediately heard Mr. Spock saying "Live Long and Prosper" so I added the saying using MS Word.  I see so many different sayings that can go with her so your imagination is your only limit.

Once I printed off the image and saying, I pulled out my markers and started coloring.  Once that was done, I stippled some Stampin Up Bermuda Bay ink around the image before layering.  I then pulled out some scrap retro designer paper for the card, then added a dry embossed dot matrix border panel.  After adding some brads, ribbon, punched "stars" with bling, pop dots and a clip, I pulled out a NBUS (never before used stuff) glaze pens to highlight parts of Interstellar Toni's hair, uniform, laser and boots.  I'm really happy with how she's turned out.

I'd also like to enter her in the following challenge:

Musings And Stuff


Sorry to be so absent lately, I've been having some major issues with my chronic migraines and fibromyalgia.  I'm hoping to get back to stamping and blogging as soon as I can.

In the meantime, my family's hearts and prayers go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.

Frosty....take me away!!!


Hello and welcome.  How'd you like the little "calgon moment"?  Right now that's how I feel, however, you're not here to listen to that.

I'm sharing with you today a card I made for a few challenges using Whimsy's July freebie Top Of The Morning Snowman.  After downloading him, I printed him off at 3.5 x 5 inches so I could color while still dealing with another migraine.  Once he was printed off, I pulled out both my prismacolor and copic markers and got to coloring before layering and adding snowflake brads I've had in my stash for years.  I also paired him with some PTI designer paper I received as a gift before our move.  I then decided to pull out some never before used(NBUS)  Martha Stewart Christmas washi tape before stippling Tim Holtz broken china distress ink around the edges of the card.  I adhered the image panel using some pop dots before adding ice stickles to add some sparkle.

Christmas Penguins



Hello and welcome.  Today I am sharing a card made for the week long Christmas In July challenges over at Catch The Bug.  This card is for the Tuesday Christmas In July Bingo challenge.  I chose to go with the Sparkle, Bugaboo Image, Ribbon selections.

After printing my Winter Penguin Trio onto white card stock and colored using both prismacolor and copic markers, I stamped the saying from the Stampin Up! set Heard From The Heart before layering and adding some snowflake brads.  I then pulled out a fireworks designer paper to go with my penguins since the printed fireworks matched my snowflake brads.  After mounting the layered image to the card, I added some glittered ribbon and ice stickles to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.

Santa Has Enough Reindeer?


Hello and welcome.  I hope you're enjoying your day and it's filled with fun and lots of relaxation.  Today I'm sharing a card using an oldie but goodie from Bugaboo Digital Stamps called Enough Reindeer.  Now who can resist those puppy eyes!!!  I sure couldn't.  Now onto my card.

I started off by printing the image off onto white card stock then colored it using both prismacolor and copic markers.  Once the coloring was finished, I stippled some Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink around the sides then layered using some Papertrey (PTI) Pure Poppy and Spring Rain card stock before adding some mini gold brads.  I then layered some PTI Rustic Snowflake designer paper onto a white card along with some Martha Stewart washi tape from my stash.  After adding my image panel, I added some snowflake bling and a mini golden bow.  I finally added some diamond/waterfall ice stickles to add some sparkle on the image.  Unfortunately, all of the sparkle doesn't show up very well in the pic and my cutting is slightly off due to new glasses. :(

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
