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!
