Steampunk Halloween Release!

Squee!!! It’s release day for Simply Betty Stamps’ Steampunk Halloween collection! Best SBS collection EVER! I have 3 more creations to share with you today, so let’s get started!

This is Druscilla. Isn’t she an elegant demon? Perhaps an older version of Simi for al you Dark Hunter fans out there? I love her gown, and her horns, her wings…well…all of her really!

This was another project that Phoenix assisted on. He chose the colors I used. And I think he picked a great combination! You’ll notice I broke out my Heidi Swapp bat masks again…just love ‘em! I also sprinkled some fabulously chunky gold glitter around the bottom of Druscilla’s gown.

Now let’s move on to Lydia, the Living Dead Girl. Ooh, she’s a fun one…trust me!

So she’s dead. Big deal…Don’t you wanna party with her? I used the latest Deconstructed Sketch for my layout. And I gave it a funky 80’s twist.

I really want her dress for myself! I fashioned her kitty after one of my mom’s..she can be as creepy as this one when she wants to! I used some Pumice Stone Distress Ink around the edges of the image.

How perfect is the turquoise tulle with this card? Unexpected, but perfect! The Spooktacular is from Stampendous!

Ok. Now…this last image is my favorite. No, really. I love them ALL…but there’s something extra special about this one. I bring you, Beatrix the Witch…

Isn’t she the most beautiful witch image ever? So elegant and lovely…with her enchanted pumpkins swirling about. I adore her. And, I really like the lack of color I used on her too!

I love white Halloween decorations. Again, I’m into the unexpected. And I love white pumpkins, so I needed to make sure I had some here.

I got some beautiful mossy green scrim (the fabric), and I shredded it a bit for some added texture. Plus, I used some ultra-cool, clear micro beads that I got from my girl Kelli. You can see them in the corner.

This is even prettier in person…you would see more subtleties in the coloring, and a touch of glimmer on the image. This one is a keeper for me. :)

So???? Are you totally ga-ga over this collection??? As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I am! So rush, rush, rush on over to the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to see the rest of the DT’s creations, and then over to the SBS Shop to purchase these truly unique images for yourself. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
