Steampunk Halloween by Simply Betty Stamps

It’s official! This is my absolute favorite collection that Simply Betty Stamps has put out! I LOVE THIS COLLECTION! It’s the Steampunk Halloween, and believe me when I say, you are all going to want it! All of the Steampunks are incredible, and I really have a ton of projects I plan on doing with all of the older sets…but this one…oooh…this set rocks my socks to the max! Plus, it’s a big collection (in size and quantity)! There are 7 images in this set! And they are about 5 inches tall. You will want them all! Ok…I can’t wait any longer…let’s take a peek!

Let’s start off with Draco the Ghost Gent. He is creepy cool…seriously.

Look at his clothes! Look at his face! Look at the awesome top hat! Can you tell I’m excited? ;) Now…look at the background. If you stopped by yesterday and saw my latest Bombshell Stamps creation, I made a card using this same mask (from Tim Holtz). I am on a serious mask kick lately (perhaps because Halloweenie is coming?!), as you will see on several projects this week.

I colored Draco in with my markers, using very soft, almost pretty tones. Then I aged those colors by using layers of grey and tan. For the backgroung, I had a scrap leftover that was previosly sprayed with a couple shades of Glimmer Mist. I took my clock Mask and chalked brown on top of it, to give the clock a subtle, ghostly vibe.

You can see the glimmer a bit here. The sentiment is from Stampendous. I won it from Cyndi’s awesome blog…and this image is actually part of a much bigger, Halloween sentiment stamp. Now…on to Bella the Vampire!

Isn’t she stunning? She is so very elegant…and lethal. ;) I love coloring her dress.

More watercolor markers here. And…another mask. This one os from Heidi Swapp. Love. It. Lots of layers of Distress Ink for this one. Plus three, teeny rhinestones!

I used foam dots to pop Bella off the page. Look out! She may come to get you! Next up is Jacob the Werewolf…

I made a book mark! With a paint chip! I have a bit of an obsession with paint chips. I use them fairly often, and every time I am in a home goods store, I come home with a wad of them. My friend Rebecca made me a lovely bookmark with a paint chip last year…and you can see some of her others HERE.  So that’s where the inspiration came from. But look at that handsome wolf…

I love his outfit. How it’s starting to rip in the sleeves since he’s transforming??? So cool! More with the markers and masks here. But different techniques from the others.

You wouldn’t want to be on his bad side!!! I have one more image to show you…but alas, no project for her. Say hello to Gillian the Ghost. IMG_3025

I just ran out of time. And I feel really bad about it because she already looks so sad! But, she'll just have to wait a little longer before I finish a project with her. But I doubt she’ll cheer up even then…

So what do you think of these images? You’ll have to wait one more day before you can buy them. But don’t wait. Because I am quite sure that they are going to sell very quickly! Now hop on over to the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created with these stunning images. Please be sure to visit me again tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Great projects Alison! Love the masking you did for the backgrounds, and I can totally picture Gillian as the ghost bride who was left at the altar, only to starve herself over the loss of love. Been watching too many "Ghost Adventures" Love them all!
I want. I want. I want. Seriously, if I give you puppy-dog eyes can I have them?

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!
