Jude and the Rockers Christmas Release!

Surprise! I have a new Simply Betty Stamps release to share with you today! Betty decided to let these stamps out of their cage a little earlier than expected…which is great for you, because now you have more time to play with them before the holidays! I have a bunch of cards created with these images, and you can see all of them on the Simply Betty Stamps Blog, but here, I’m only going to show you 2 today. The rest I’ll chat about tomorrow.

The first is Carrots for Rudolph Ariel. I love her! I always yused to leave carrots out for Santa’s reindeer, so this image holds a special place in my heart.

Isn’t she a cutie? And look at those yummy carrots! I colored Ariel in with my colored pencils.

There’s a bit of a glare on this pic, the top one’s colors are truer, but you can see all the high and lowlights I’ve got going on. She was super fun to color…and she’d be pretty good for that colored pencil tutorial I’ve been asked to do…What do you think?

I’m very excited about this next card. This one also features Ariel, but it also has Cookies for Santa Jude in a special Christmas Duo image. And I didn’t make it…Phoenix did!

He wanted to color with me, so I let him choose which image he wanted to work with. He saw me coloring Ariel, and decided he wanted to color her just like I did! And you know what? He did a great job CASEing me!

Pink nightgown with yellow spots, Green slippers WITH highlights! He even borrowed my pencils to use the same color for the pot and her hair! Seriously, ya gotta click on this picture to see the comparison better.

He decided to make this card for my mom. Wanna see the inside?

He calls my mom Grandmama…like in The Addam’s Family? As per her request. :) How do you like his vehicles and rainbow on the right side?

I have a special stamp that I use on the back of my cards, so Phoenix decided to create one for himself! How awesome is he???

So have I peeked your interest on the rest of the new Jude and the Rockers Christmas images? Then hurry on over to the Simply Betty Stamps Blog and see the whole group! Then go on over to the SBS Store to pick up these cuties for yourself! And if you come back here tomorrow, I will have all the details on the rest of my creations. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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!
