About Me

Mesa, Arizona, United States
Hi: It's Merniebug here. Well actually it's Melanie but I answer to a variety of sobriquets. My mother had been reading Gone With The Wind at the time of my birth, thus, I was named Melanie. My friends call me Mel, It was my sister who coined the moniker Mernie when she was too young to pronounce Melanie correctly. It was eventually shortened to Mern. And then later when my nephew came along he called me Melwee because he couldn't pronounce Melanie either. Now my husband of thirty-four years is so confused he just calls me whatever comes to mind first. Actually I was Sweetheart until the day he realized the honeymoon was over. It was my cousin who added the bug to Mernie which is who I've always been to him and who I am on Splitcoast Stampers. So now that we've gotten past the odd name business, who else am I? I'm a child of the King, a wife and a mother to one grown son and five tailwaggin' fur babies. I am a retired interior designer, a rubber stamper, and a wanna be author who is just completing a first novel. I got into scrapping and rubber stamping to fill a creative void after retiring--it's less expensive than redecorating the house every year. LOL

3-D Dolly

I can't believe I did it again.  I completely forgot my blog post this week.  For Digi Doodle Shop's Best we were to create a card with with a three dimensional  element to it.  My lady was layered three times on dimensional tape and the handmade flower is three dimensional.  It doesn't show in the picture but her purse is layered as well as the hat with it's feather and bling.

What I used o my card:
IMAGE :  Digi Doodle Shop
Border Dies and Nestability: Spellbinder
Foliage Punch: Martha Stewart
Hand-made flower:  I started by puncing scalloped circles, sprying with multiple colors of Glimmer Mist, layering and distressing.  It was finished off with a tulle bow. Image was colored with Copics.
