Hey Good Looking, What you got Cooking?

Welcome back to day four of our Teen Scene Kitchen Fun previews and today we have Pan Slingin' London to show you! This good looking cook is about to knock out one hell of a meal, or maybe knock you out, depending on her mood, tehe!!

Doesn't she look like one sassy sweetie?  I had so much fun colouring her with my letraset promarkers, I love how her hair turned out.  The papers are the same ones i've been using all week, basically i took 2 sheets of 12 x 12 paper, and it's going to be enough to help create backgrounds for all my Kitchen Fun cards; I wanted to show how easy it is to create a set of beautiful cards using very limited supplies.  To embellish this card I used some washi tape, tiny alphabet stickers, and a few eyelets.

Come back tomorrow for Day 5 of our previews, we've another real sweetie to share with you.  Want more inspiration today, then check out what the rest of the DT have created over at the Simply Betty Stamps Blog.

Have a great day

Getting Spicy with Spaghetti Christian

So yesterday I promised you something spicy! well here he is meet 'Spaghetti Christian' from the Teen Scene Kitchen Fun Collection at Simply Betty; isn't he yummy!

I found the wordart the other day and thought it would work perfectly with Christian, as he looks like a little hottie to me, so a spicy sentiment seemed appropriate.  I coloured Christian with my Letraset Promarkers before matting him onto some glossy black card. You'll recognise the paper as being the same pattern as on my previous Kitchen Fun cards.  To this i added a black gingham paper to give the impression of a tablecloth, gingham always makes me thing of tablecloths!!

I hope you like Christian, make sure you come back tomorrow for another yummy preview fresh from the oven.  Want to see how versatile Christian is, then hop over to the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to see the awesome creations by Betty and the rest of the DT Girls.

Enjoy the rest of your day

Tis the Season to be Zombies....Fa la la la la...

Eh? Zombies? Yep you read it right! As you all know Betty loves Zombies, Halloween and the quirky! Christmas is not her absolute favorite of Holidays but you knew that too! 
She's managed to make it her second favorite by Zombie-fying it! Whoot whoo! We have a new fun line for you... Sketchy Zombies! 

We are kicking this release off with Lexi, but for the season it's Falalala Lexi... she's ready to sing you a Christmas Carol! 

Isn't she the cutest zombie you've ever seen?  I love her, and her friends!
I used some of my favourite Christmas paper with her, one of the snowflake designs from the DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas Stack.  Along with that I used lots of white card stock, which I embossed with a swiss dots embossing folder, and I embossed two trees with a cuttlebug folder.   My sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Christmas Tickets sentiments.  
To embellish my card i added a mixture of glittered snowflake stickers, silver padded stars, and some clear gems.

Want to see how versatile this image is, then hop over to the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to see what the rest of the DT have created with her, all the creations are awesome!

Jude and The Rockers Christmas Release

Yes Christmas is quickly approaching, so we have some more wonderful Christmas images to share with you at Simply Betty Stamps.  I've only the one card to share with you today, as i'm a little unwell.  Let me introduce you to the cute and sassy MistleHolly Brittany from the Jude and The Rockers Christmas Collection.  

I stamped Brittany with Versafine Ink onto watercolour paper, before colouring her with Watercolour Crayons.  I use my wonky rectangle dies to cut her out, along with some aqua colour paper, and a smaller die cut for the sentiment.  I created some bunting, using the whimsy stamps banner die, along with the xmas banner stamps.  To finish it all off, I added some red stars, and tiny red gems for holly berries.

I'm hoping to have a few more cards to share with you as the week goes on, but if you want more inspiration now, then check out the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to see the awesome creations from the rest of the Design Team.  Don't forget to hop over to the Simply Betty Store to order your stamps before stocks run out, and the introductory prices end.

Challenge#99 - Paper Piecing with the Pixies

It's time for a new challenge with the Pixies at the Pixie Dust Studio Challenge Blog, and it's a goodie this week, all you have to do is do some 'Paper Piecing' on your project.

Paper Piecing with digital stamps can be really easy, especially if you like using digital papers.  All i did was print out some digital patterned paper, let it dry, and then put it back through my printer, so that it would print my image over the pattern.  I repeated my image on the page (using my printer's software), just in case i needed any spares.  I then printed my image onto white cardstock. Then it's just out with the scissor and get cutting.

For this card i decided to use the adorable 'Under the Mistletoe' image from the 15 Days of Christmas Collection.  Basically I couldn't resist picking up a penguin or two!!

I kept the rest of the card very simple, using a silver mirror card blank for my base to which i added my trimmed down image.  I then added some pink washi tape, and a few pink pearls.  To finish it all off I colored the mistletoe pink, and added some white to the penguins eyes.

It's Fall @ Desert Island Crafters Challenge...

Yep it's time to embrace Fall, although for a lot of you it feels more like winter at the moment.  It's time for a new challenge over at Desert Island Crafters Challenge.

This week's Itinerary comes from Louise Hodge.

1) Fall theme
2) Lace
3) Leafs
4) Glitter
5) Stitching (Real or Faux)
6) Bling
7) Punches
8) Kraft cardstock
9) Pumpking
10) Distressed

Here is my card...
I decided to use the beautiful Brittany from the Jude and The Rockers Fall Collection available at Simply Betty  My papers are from the Autumn Splendor Collection by We R Memory Keepers.

I also decided to play along with the Try a New Technique Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers this week; this week's technique is Telescoping Image.  I had a slight mental lapse when sticking my image together, and forgot to use foam pads, so my card features the Closed Telescoping Image Technique (not sure if that exists, but it does now, lol).

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween, and haven't overdosed on Candy!!
Thanks for visiting with me today

Challenge #4 at Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls and we've got some Creepy Kids!!

Welcome to new Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls challenge, I hope you are enjoying the revamped blog and challenges, I know the Dolls and I are having great fun with the new challenges.

The theme for challenge #4 is 'Scary Kids', create a project that features either some sort of Scary Kid (Damian from the Omen, The Twins from the Shining, etc) or a film that is either Scary for Kids or Scared you as a Kid!!  I wonder how many of you are still scared of 'The ChildCatcher', I'm sure a few of you are!!

So onto my card for today's challenge; I went for one of my favourite films inspired by a book, the book being 'The Midwich Cuckoos' by John Wyndham, and the film is of course the Village of the Damned (1960)

I came up with the idea for this card quite quickly, as I find the children in the film to be rather scary and creepy, and therefore perfect for this challenge.  I knew i wanted to use the wall image, as that really reminds me of the turning point of the story.  The wall image comes from Make It Crafty and is part of the Urban Street Digi Stamp  which i bought as part of the Urban Street Collection.  The scary kids are the wonderful creations of Lily Chilvers the genius behind The Octopode Factory, They are her Back to School Girl and Boy images.

I kept my card very simply, using some brown cardstock from my stash, to create my card base, which i ran through my embossing machine with the Tim Holtz Sizzix Wall Embossing Folder.  I printed my images, coloured them with my Letraset Promarkers, before trimming the image down, and distressing the edges.  To finish the card i added some natural jute twine.

I hope you have as much fun with this challenge as I did, I can't wait to see your Scary Kid Creations.
Bye for now
