Here's a new card I made using the My Bestie Geisha Girl Img 16 Doll Stamp.

I colored this dark haired cutie using Copic Markers and cut her out leaving a narrow white edge.

I made a black embossed mat from, card stock with the Oriental Weave Embossing Folder, from the Cuttlebug Asian Bundle (2000011) in my Cuttlebug Machine. I glued this sheet onto a white base card and adhered a gold foil sheet to the center, creating a second mat. I glued the cut Geisha Girl figure on top.

Hanglar and Wings Two New Cards


I have fallen in love with some new digital stamps! The Hangla and Wings company was originally only making rubber and clear stamps. A while back they offered the this little girl freebie....that was the beginning of the romance! Then this week they sent out notices that they are giving digital stamps a trial run. I went right over there and bought this adorable little boy. There are a few others currently available in time for Easter.

At first all I was interested in was coloring the little girl. Here she is all in Copic Markers:
Yesterday I decided she could use a new dress and so I printed her twice. Once for markers and the other on the printed paper. I cut the smock out of the printed paper and glued it to the cut out of the colored image (I only colored in certain areas where the dress did not cover.) I made a layered mat and adhered the girl to the card on top. I used some gems to embellished the lower right corner of the card.

For the boy, I also wanted to piece him, but I printed him three times. I wanted one to color some areas with Copic Markers and I wanted printed paper for pants and another for a vest sweater. After coloring and cutting the pieces, I glued each in place. The boy is in a scene made with a blue sky background, a cloud die and a grass die. I love the effect I got with the scene and want to make some more in the future.

I hope you like my new cards and will come back to see what I do the next time I get some of these cute images.

Grandma's Story Starter Book 3



Grandma's Story Starter Books

I am a grandma to two of the most adorable kids. I will try anything in my power to keep them and my family safe and happy. As a retired art teacher I enjoy paper crafting. I have made several paper pieced books from chipboard. Originally these were just pretty pictures unrelated to each other, but then I realized there could be a use for them.

The older child, my grandson has been diagnosed in the Autism Spectrum disorder. The child is very bright, doing well in virtual school at home using the computer. He reads aloud with expression, while enjoying reading to his little sister. Because he lacks communication skills and doesn't speak much his comprehension is in question.

Each page of my little books could be a way to draw out the imagination of this type of child, getting him to speak about what he thinks is going on in the page. This child could gain the confidence he might lack.

http://www.mybestiesshop.com/store/p6841/Instant_Download_My_Besties_Adorbs_Dragons_Doll_5___.html
http://addicted-to-stamps.blogspot.com/

Here's my  new My Besties card. The image is called Adorbs Dragons Doll 5.

I colored this cute image using Copic Markers and cut her out leaving a narrow white edge.

I cut two solid colored mats and embossed one using the Sizzix 65676 Hearts and Dots embossing folder, in my Cuttlebug Machine.

I adhered the mats in layers onto a white base card and then I put soft dimensionals on the back of the cut image and popped it on top.

I embellished the card with a fabric flower from my stash on the lower right corner.
