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!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
