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!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
