Simply Betty Stamps 'Let's Fly' Fan Page Challenge

Good evening, another wee post from me tonight for Simply Betty Stamps this time.

We have a brand new Fan Page challenge starting and we'd love you to play along. You can find the new images on the SBS Shop and here are two that I've had the pleasure of playing with!
This is Tulip Fairy Wendy and I've coloured her with Promarkers. My DP are from First Edition Desert Blooms paper pad and I've finished with some lace and pins. The sentiment goes with the image and I've used Spellbinders Labels 1 for die cutting and layering.
This next one is Flower Bell Corinne and I just couldn't do a post without more purple! Again, she is coloured with promarkers. The DP is Craftwork Cards Velvet Plum and I've used the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis frame to mount her. I've finished with the matching sentiment and some purple candi along with liquid pearl accents on the paper and stickles on her wings.
Thanks for looking!

Simplly Betty Stamps Celebrate Erin's Birthday

Hi crafty folks! I have a cute new Simply Betty Stamps image to share with you today. It's called Erin and Hoot and it's in honour of the Birthday of one of our DT Colleagues! Happy Birthday Erin! I hope you like what we've done with the image for you.
I have used the image with the frame (it also comes without the frame) and have coloured it with Promarkers. I have fussy cut inside the frame and around the image and mounted this onto green paper. My DP is from the Berry Blast paper pad by Ki and I fussy cut the edges of one sheet to make a 3D frame, mounted on 3D foam, for the card. I coloured the white of the image with Peeled Paint DI and added Glossy Accents for the eyes. The sentiment comes with the image too.
Thanks for looking!

Simply Betty Stamps Teen Scene Eras 2 New Release

Simply Betty Stamps are releasing a selection of new Teen Scene images today! Eras 2 has some really funky images of teens reminiscing about the past and they are fabulous!! I have had the pleasure of playing with 4 of the new images and hope you like them!

As always my images are coloured with Promarkers and I've added black pencil in areas to add details. The sentiments on each card match the image and come as part of the digi that you would purchase on the SBS Shop.

The papers on this card are from Craftwork Cards Velvet Plum - my current favourite! The flowers are from the matching stamp set and I've used matching Velvet Plum candi with Glossy Accents. The banner is an abstract flourish cut on my Cameo.

 The DP on here is from Bo Bunny and I've matched up some candi from Craftwork Cards to embellish this. The corner was also cut on my Cameo.

Like I said, Velvet Plum is my current favourite and this is another of the papers from the pad with pearlescent purple candi. The flowers and corner have been cut on my Cameo. There's some Glossy Accents and Star Dust Stickles to finish the card.

This card also uses papers from Craftwork Cards from the Chocolate Orange Goody Bag available at Christmas. The die cut flowers matched the papers and I've used gold pearl candi too.

Why not check out the Simply Betty Stamps Blog for more fabulous inspiration from the Design Team and a look at more of the images from this release!
