Simply B Stamps Release Day Blog Hop

It's finally here!  Welcome to the Simply B Stamps Release Blog Hop day!  Whoop whoop!  If you have arrived here from the fabulous Suzi's blog you're right on track and no beating will need to happen!  ;O)  If you didn't and you don't want to miss any of the excitement or awesome inspiration, please head back to the SBS blog (or face the consequences).

Want to win?  One winner will be chosen at random from any of our blogs for a chance to win each new image!  We will be choosing from the comments left on all blogs, each day we previewed an image.  Winners will be announced Saturday morning with our Limited Digi release.  If you happen to purchase the digis before you know who won... no worries, Betty will gift you a brand spankin' new digi from our NEXT release in place of the one you have won IF you have already purchased this new release or the image you win.  These images are digi for a limited time, and rubber after that.  However, the rubber is on a pre-order situation...Betty hates to run out on release day and have sad customers, so she's trying something new!  Check out the deals for pre-order on the SBS blog!

Who's ready to put out some fires?  I'll tell you who...Jude is!  Meet Fireman Jude!  He's sure to set your little heart on fire...Maybe his sweet pup can lick the flames out?  *giggle*

Good morning, Can You Digi It? fans!  It's time for another challenge...come on and join in for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the CYDI? store!  SUNRISE/SUNSET...use this gorgeous collage for your inspiration.

Pixie Dust Studio Ahoy Release!

Good afternoon all!  I hope you're excited...if you're not you really should be!  Today is the day that the Pixie Dust Studio releases their super cute Ahoy Collection!  It's also challenge day at the PDS Challenge blog...this week's challenge is to use RIBBON!

Today I have merged the last 2 images, Lil' Miss Sailor and Lil' Mr Sailor together.  They were too cute to be out on the boat alone!  I put them on a digital background from Dustin Pike that was released a couple of years ago and colored them all with my Copics.  Since this took up most of the card, I simply matted the images, added the ribbon and charm at the top and voila!  I hope you like it!

Thanks for coming by today to see the last 2 images of the new release!  Come on over to the PDS Challenge blog and join us for the ribbon challenge!  :O)  MWAH!!!

Hey there, fellow bleeps!  I hope your Tuesday is going well.  I'm popping in again today with a little sneaky peek of one of the new images to be released on April 12th at Pixie Dust Studio.

Meet Jack Jr...he loves to sail the seas looking for booty to steal!  Not THAT kind of booty...treasure, of course!  Wouldn't you share with someone so cute?  I used some paper that I've had stashed away 14 year old son used to LOVE all things pirates!  The sentiment is from a CTMH set.  Little Jack Jr. is colored using Copics and then fussy cut.

Pop on in again tomorrow for another project using new images from PDS' latest release, Ahoy!  MWAH!!!

Blog Hop with SBS - Verity Vamp & Boris the Bat

Welcome to the Simply B Stamps Blog Hop!  

We know you're dying to meet Verity Vamp and her little buddy Borris the Bat!  If you've arrived from the fabulous Barbara's blog, then you are right on track...if not, you had better start back at SBS blog so you don't miss anything good!

Meet Verity Vamp & Boris the Bat...I used some Foo-fa-la DP on this one and colored with Copics.  The card stock I printed the image onto was white, so I had to remedy that as it looked quite strange with all the cream color.  I used my Prismacolor pencils and OMS for that.  I used some blood splatters around the edge of the image along with some scrunched ribbon (colored with Copics) and pearls.

Please hop on over to visit my good friend know she'll have something awesome for you!  If you should get lost along the way, here is the hop order.

Thanks so much for visiting today and coming by all week to see the amazing new line that is Spunky Spooks - available right now at Simply B Stamps Store!!!  MWAH!

SBS - Lucy Lycan & Lex *ON SALE NOW!

Is there a full moon tonight at Simply B Stamps? If there is, you'll find Lucy Lycan and Lex having a wild old time in their beloved woodland home. Lucy is a bit of a mystery, as we don't know much about her family, we just know she seems to have an affinity with wolves, foxes and other canines! Don't ask her too many questions tho, as she has a tendancy to bite when annoyed!

I know you won't be annoyed by this...the Spunky Spooks are available for sale RIGHT NOW!  I know we said Friday, but we know you can't wait to play with these awesome images!  Head on over to the Simply B Stamps Store to get them for yourself!

SBS Preview - Haunting Hannah & Hoot

Welcome back to another spooky preview at Simply B Stamps. We are getting rather spooky today with the adorable Haunting Hannah and her friend Hoot. Hannah loves haunting, she was a hippy in her previous life, so has always been a bit of a free spirit; so being able to float through locked doors and walls is a great adventure for her. Haunting is not much fun on your own tho, so you'll find Hoot is always by Hannah's side to keep her company.

Here is my project...colored with my trusty Copics minus the hair.  That I did with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.  I hope you like her!

Back tomorrow...same time, same place!  MWAH!
