Back 2 Skool Release!

I have 2 more cards to share with you today featuring some more of Simply Betty Stamps’ newest release… Back 2 Skool. All of the images (there are 6!) are available for purchase starting today! Of course, you can get all of the details on the SBS Blog.

First up, is School Girl Betty. She’s a sweetie!

Once again, my kidlings needed to put in their creative 2 cents, and they chose the colors I would use for Betty. I was all for the purple school girl outfit (which Phoenix chose)…but the bag…I was going to use just green. But Rhiannon insisted I use yellow too. Who am I to argue with a 2 year old???

I dulled the color down with one of the 4 (yes 4!) Copics that I own..E40. It’s called Brick White. And it is a wonderful color that I am so pleased that I purchased. I’m thinking Copics may just be on my Holiday List this year! Any Copic Fairies out there? Feel free to send me some! ;) Her skin was also done with Copics. The rest of Betty was colored using my watercolor markers.

The frame around Betty is from a leftover scrap from a stamp I have of a Phoenix and a Dragon. I needed just the circular image, so I kept the border…and I thin that lime green looks great here! Then I added some chipboard embellishments and called it a day.

Now on to Mad Scientist Christian…who I adore!!!

I mean seriously…isn’t he awesome?!?! I can’t even wait any longer…ya gotta see him close up!

Look at the skull and crossbones in the green smoke! So cool!!! More with the markers… I also used a few Martha Stewart Punches on this card…and I broke out my Smeared Ink stamps again for my sentiment.

I gotta say, I love this one. It came together just right. Doesn’t it feel great when that happens? Well, I know that the other SBS gals have some rad projects too! So please be sure to give them a visit and leave them some love. You have a shot at winning a stamp from this release!!! And, if you are a member of Paper Craft Planet, please join the Simply Betty Stamps group! Once we hit 500 followers, you’ll be able to snag a free digi! Sweet! Tomorrow is the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop, so I hope to see ya here then. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
