Burlesque Bettys Sneak Peek - Preview Day 5

Hello, all! It's Day 5 of the preview days for the Burlesque Bettys Collection! Today we have a tantalizing image!

Well thank goodness for that or Betty Feathers may be giving you all a PEEP show, no peek a BOOB here! She's all covered up and ready to shake them tail feathers!

It's Betty Feathers! And my theme for today is the 4th of July!

Stand Up and Be Proud! I must say I am not completely happy about how this one came out. I do love how the image came out but the card seems to be lacking something. Hmmm....I'll figure it out, I'm sure. Well, other than that, I have to say Betty Feathers is one of my faves from this collection. She is just so cute and sassy!
I hope you are all enjoying these so far, remember that these will be our last big Shebang for 2012! I am looking forward to a New Year of SBS and new friends!

Of course before we get to the New Year, won't you please visit the other DT members and show them some support!? We sure do appreciate it ;)

Betty Burlesque Sneek Peak - Preview Day 4

Hi, everyone! Day four of the Burlesque Bettys preview. Today's image is more subdued than the others but so lovley!

Today we have Betty Love Song!

My theme for this preview was Halloween!

A Halloween Treat. This is my version of Betty Love Song. I decided to color her dress green like in the Burlesque movie since it went with the color scheme I wanted to use. I love the color combo of lime green, purple, and orange!

The inside of the A Halloween Treat card.

Burlesque Bettys Sneak Peak - Preview Day 3

Hello, everybody! It's day 3 of the Burlesque Bettys preview and the images keep getting better and better!

Talk about a HAND-ful of cuties eh? What do you think so far?

Today's cutie is just a HAND-ful of sass! She's sure to lend you a HAND with your "SUPPORT" type cards!

Let's hear it for Betty Hand Bottoms!

For this image I got the theme of Love!

I Love You From Top to Bottom. I immediately thought of pink and black for the color scheme for the Love theme. It wasn't until later that I figured the green would make an awesome combo with them. You can't see it but there is glitter on the hands that are on her outfit. I love my Copic Spica pens!

The inside of my I Love You From Top to Bottom card.

Burlesque Bettys Sneak Peak - Preview Day 1

Hello, all! Today is a day I have been looking forward to for a while! This is the beginning of the sneak peeks for a fabulous new stamp line from Simply B Stamps! These stamps are so cool and fun to play with! I sure enjoyed coloring them and making them into cards!

Betty put it perfectly in the description on the Simply Betty Stamps Blog:

Glamour, Dance, and Song....

What would you get from all three clues in our post title?

One heck of a Bettys Line...


Imagine the possibilities with such cute images! As we take you on a tip tap toeing preview week we promise to Dazzle you! These cuties are sure to knock your socks off and have you dancing around the craft room with lots of glitter, flock, and rhinestones!

Today we are going to kick it off with
Betty Bad Girl

To show how versatile these cuties are sure to be, we have each done her up in a different theme.

My theme for Betty Bad Girl was the color scheme of Black, Red, and Cream. Here she is!

You Take the Stage! This is my version of Betty Bad Girl. I had a lot of fun trying to color her hair a blue black. Never done that before! Lol. But I like how it came out.
The red curtains are cut out from cardstock and inked with Red Brick Distress Ink to make them look like they are pleated. Then I added Liquid pearls to make them look like they had fringe. I inked the background paper with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to get a cream color instead of white.
Please hop around and check out the rest of the gal's creations with Betty Bad Girl, each one has a different theme to share!

Norse Gods - Release Day!

Hello, all! Today is the release day of the Norse Gods collection at Simply B Stamps!!!! I hope all of you will take advantage of getting these images! They are so much fun to work with!

Today's preview consists of the last pair of gods; Chris as Odin and Betty as Figga. Odin was the All-Father in Norse mythology and was the most powerful of the gods. Frigga was his wife and the only other person allowed to sit on Odin's throne where one could see the whole universe.

Here are my creations using Odin and Frigga.

I've Got My Eye on You. This is Chris as Odin. He looks like such a bad*ss with his cape and staff. Lol.

Your Beauty is That of a Goddess. This is Betty as Frigga. She is so elegant and beautiful. It was a pleasure coloring her and putting her on some flowered papers.
Make sure to visit the SBS Blog and the other DT Blogs to see what everyone else created with these amazing images!

Norse Gods Release Preview - Day 3!

Hello, everyone! It's day 3 of the preview for the Norse Gods from Simply B Stamps! These are such fabulously fun images! I hope you get your hands on some to create some amazing projects!

Today's previews will be of Lola as Sif and Rio as Hel,

In Norse mythology, Sif was the wife of Thor, the goddess associated with the earth. Hel was the goddess of the underworld, much like Hades is in Greek mythology. I think that is where the word "hell" comes from.

Here are my creations with these unusual and beautiful ladies:

Enjoy Life's Little Moments. This is Lola as Sif. I thought she would look lovely in some spring colors to go with the golden locks she is supposed to have.

It's Been One of Those Days. This is Rio as Hel. I thought of her as more earthy than deadly, that is why I went with brown instead of black for her colors.

Make sure to visit the SBS blog and the other DT blogs to view what everyone else has created with these!

Norse Gods Release Preview - Day 2!

Hello, all! Today is day two of the previews for the Norse Gods collection at Simply B Stamps!

The next two images are of gods that are a little less known than some of the others but are no less cooler than them. The first is London as Freya. Freya was a Valkyrie; the goddess of war and love. The second is Miller as Heimdall; he was the guardian of the rainbow bridge that connected Asgard to other worlds. You can see him in the movie Thor.

Here are my creations with these to awesome warriors!

I've Got Your Back. This is London as Freya. She is ready to fight along with her vicious kitties! I think she is so cool. One of my favorite gods in Norse mythology because she is not only beautiful but tough!

Oh God! Not Another Birthday. This is Miller as Heimdall. He is awesome with his shield and sword at the ready.
Check out the rest of the DT creations and details about these images at Simply Betty Stamps Blog!

Norse Gods Release Preview - Day 1!

Hi, all! I hope you are all enjoying the start of your week! We have a new release from Simply B Stamps today! And these are some fun images! I know you'll recognize the first two images from this collection. With the unparalleled success of The Avengers, I don't think anyone would not know who these two are.


Here are the first two from the Norse Gods collection; Thor and Loki!

For A Special Little Boy. This is Thor! He is such a fun and fantastic image! Perfect for all those comic book junkies or super hero-worshipping little kids! I went for an old school comic feel to this one and I am pretty happy with the turn out.

Hey There, Trouble Maker! This is Loki! I loved Loki in the movie The Avengers and I must say when I saw this image I was so excited! I had so much fun coloring him!
Please visit the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to see all the details of this release and don't forget to visit the other DT to see what they created with these fantastic images!
