New Release at Simply Betty Stamps!

Good morning everyone!  Happy Hump Day and Thanksgiving Eve!  Who's ready for turkey and pumpkin pie?  I know I am!  :O)  Better yet...who's ready for a new release at Simply Betty Stamps?  I knew you would be!!!  A fun new line called Sweet Gothic World Kids will leave you feeling satisfied...with none of calories!  Check them out for their premier on the Simply Betty Challenges Blog!

Without further adeu, I introduce you to Tilly and Alex!  Doesn't she look just like she's wishing for her very own Edward?  Wish granted, girlfriend...there's Alex showing up in her daydream.  I did most of this card in Photshop.  I printed the panel, did a little coloring, gave it a good dose of Smooch Spritz in Vanilla Shimmer, double matted it, added the ribbon and gave some extra sparkle with some Stickles.

Next up we have Sally.  What a diva!  I love her and those fun shaped balloons!  I decided to go out of my comfort zone on this one and do an easel card.  I have made one before this and it could hardly be called finished (though I was pretty happy with it at the time).  I keep seeing all these amazing easel cards and decided I was going to try it out.  Wow!  It took FOREVER to finish and it's pretty heavy after all the layers were added.  I used some of my favey Olivia DP from Basic Grey and the sketch at Taylored Expressions.  I even added a little stitched pocket where I added a tag for a note and a gift card!  I'm telling you, I am pleased with myself over this puppy!  Oh, take a look at that charm!  :O)

You can purchase these sweeties right now at the SBS Shop!  Don't forget to peek in to see what the rest of the team have up their sleeves...visit the SBC Blog to check it out!

Fantastic work! I am so in love with your photoshopped card! It is so unique and dreamlike! Your easel card rocks too! I love all the details you've put into it. Perhaps one day I'll get out of my comfort zone and try to make one.
