My Bestie Betty Davis Eyes Img 2468, Birthday Card
My new birthday card has a new image, which was released in January. This lovely image is called Betty Davis Eyes (Img 2468).

I printed the image twice, once on Copic Paper and once on printed scrapbook paper. I cut out a large headband bow from the printed copy and colored the image on the Copic Paper with Copic Markers. I left the headband bow uncolored.

I cut the colored image out leaving a narrow white edge and glued the printed bow over the uncolored one.

I adhered a solid mat to a white base card and glued a colored doily to it. I placed my finished image on top.

I stamped and matted the sentiment and adhered it to the card.

Grandma's Paper Dolls, a Handmade Spiral Bound Book

This is the 4th and last spiral bound book in my "Grandma's Paper Dolls" series. The collection was inspired by my lovely baby granddaughter! It was very enjoyable to work on this collection. The entire set was a learning experience, I even made each of the pages with the Heidi Swapp Binding System. They are chipboard covered with scrapbook paper. The dolls and their clothing are from a "StampNUp" set, that has been retired and I bought thru a secondary source online. I made use of the many metal cutting dies in my collection, putting them thru my Cuttlebug Machine. Several pages made use of the wide variety of stickers from my stash. It was great fun to work on and see it all come together.

I hope to work on a second limited addition in the near future.

Valentine Angel Card

There's a new challenge beginning today at Crafting from the Heart and the sponsor is Bugaboo Digis. I chose to use Angel I love you for my Valentine card. This is actually two stamps, the angel and the love you lettering.

I placed both stamps in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged them. I printed the cute image and colored it with Copic Markers. I used a decorative scissor to cut around the colored image and adhered it to a light blue mat. I glued that matted image to a printed card stock, which I glued to a white base card. I embellished the card with various punched hearts.

Come and join the challenge at Crafting from the Heart, where anything goes.
