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!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
