Jude and the Rockers Christmas Release Continued

Greetings! I have a couple more cards to share with you from the new Simply Betty Stamps release. We have new images from the adorable Jude and the Rockers collection…this time we’re focusing on Christmas. The entire release is available for purchase right now, and I showed you 2 cards yesterday. If you haven’t seen them, you should take a peek! I’ve got 2 more today. First up is Big Gift Lily.

I want her jammies! Actually, Phoenix has very similar ones, but his are red. And look at her cool wrapping paper! I decided to make paper similar to the wrapping paper, so I took a skull and cross bones from the Bombshell Stamps set, Speed Shop and embossed them in white all over my green cardstock.

I colored Lily in with my colored pencils. It feels so good to work with them more frequently again! Markers are cool, but here’s just something about pencils that gets me so happy.

I wonder what’s in that big box??? Next up is Mistleholly Brittany.

More awesome pj’s! I love pajamas. I would own so many if I could. :) Brittany was colored in with my markers. I know, I know…all of these happy thoughts about pencils, then I go and show you something with markers? I do love my markers. I just can’t physically work with pencils for as long as I’d like to, where as I can go much longer with the markers.

I am so happy with the hair on both of these girls. I did them both a bit differently from what I’ve done in the past, and I think these are the most successful. It’s fun to experiment with all the ways you can color them up!

There you have it. There are a couple of images I haven’t gotten to use yet, but I’ll be using them in the near future. And I’m sure that Phoenix and Rhiannon will as well! Rhiannon is already working on coloring an image for the next Simply Betty Stamps release. If you missed Betty’s post yesterday, please be sure to visit the SBS Blog to see all of the other new images, and what the rest of the DT has created. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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

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 "

Dream Big: Imagine Collaboration with Joy Clair

Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Joy Clair. They sent us some fabulous stamps, and I really love them. The stamps have such beautiful details, and there are many many options within each set. I chose to work with the Dream Big Clear Stamp Set. It features a big dream catcher with feathers and beads that you can place as you wish.  It's linework is so fine, that I knew that VersaFine ink would be the perfect ink for these stamps. But first, I chose to spritz some Fireworks! on to my watercolor paper. I focused on keeping the color up where I would place the dream catcher later. After the Fireworks! dried, I inked up the hoop of the dream catcher and stamped it out. Then I "built" the rest of the dream catcher using the beads and feathers that are also in the set. It was so much fun to create the rest of the piece. After I was happy with the beads and feathers, I drew a "string" with a PITT pen
