Burton Chibis Release Day!

Greetings! As promised, I have 2 more cards for you today featuring the latest Simply Betty Stamps collection: Burton Chibis. Let’s start off with Willy Wonka!

How joyful is he?! Of course, wouldn’t you be if you were in his shoes? I LOVE this movie *the original and the Johnny Depp version), so I was really excited to work with this image!

I used my watercolor markers to color Mr. Wonka in, and I added some additional embellishments to make this card even sweeter. A little glitter, a candy stamp (Inkadinkado), and some alcohol ink-dyed cabochons.

I think this card is funky and fun! But now it’s time for some Halloween! I give you…Miss Betty Burton…

October is quickly approaching, and this little lady was just begging to be decked out in the colors of Halloween. Doesn’t her dress look like it’s made of satin? At least…that’s what my Mom said! :)

I love her little bat. I always wanted a pet bat. It’s totally my Dad’s fault. There’s this pet store we went to from time to time (ya know that guy Mark Marrone that’s always on the Martha Stewart Show? Yeah…that guy! He’s got a store in the next town over!). We actually got our chinchilla from there…and he had this bat. A sweet, adorable fruit bat. And I wanted him! That and the monkey that was also there. My Dad even said he wanted them too! But we never got them. But I digress…

 

Speaking of Martha Stewart, that’s where the border punch came from. Isn’t it fab? Perfect for Miss Betty Burton! The sentiment is from Bombshell Stamps.

Speaking of Bombshell, I hope you will hop along with us for the latest Hump Day Hop! It’s gonna be great! But until then, please be sure to visit the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created for this wonderfully whimsical release. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love both of these Alison! Willy Wonka's playful colors are so cool. Your mom's right, Miss Betty's dress does look like black satin. Your coloring never ceases to impress. Oh, a bat would be such an interesting pet to have! Great job!

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
