Simply Betty September Release and Blog Hop!

Can I tell you that i'm OVER THE MOON to be a Guest Designer for Simply Betty Stamps? I was blessed to meet Betty this winter at CHA and spend a fabulous day with her and her family at Disneyland. Even though we'd only chatted online and on the phone occasionally, I felt so comfortable with her company and it didn't seem that we were meeting for the first time. I am very excited that she has launched her own Digi and Rubber Stamp Company and I have to say that I LOVE the Simply Betty images and wish her so much success. I am totally going to copy her text for the all the details of the here goes ........ Betty Says............

"Hello hello everyone! I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for this Double Whammy Release! I love Halloween... dressing up, the Fall weather, taking the kids out Trick Or Treating... the whole thing! So get ready for an overload of Halloween Images! Today we are starting with two... yep 2 new releases:

Jude and his Shenanigan Crew
My little Jude is an very active toddler, he has me going in circles half the time, and the rest of the time he has me going up and down! I thought it would be really fun to have a line made just for him... so imagine my excitement when I found Matthew Synowics artist of Jude and Crew! He was so fast at turning these around I was able to release them along with the Punky Teens!

The Punky Teens are a concept I had in my head for a while... funky, fun, and very different kids! Artist Alexander Landa! When I came across his art I was instantly in love! His art style as you will see, is very unique and different... right up my alley! He too was super fast in turning the images around for me, I just had to release them at once! I had to share with you all these fun and Spunky images!

All these fun new images you will see as you hop along are now available Where all the Original Emo Kids Cushion Mounted Rubber is on sale.

For my first card, I used the A-dorable Jude Stamp! Way cute eh? The real Jude is pretty darned sweet too!!! I coloured with Copics. DP is from Imaginisce and Stampin' Up! The wee bats are punched from a Martha Stewart Punch and glittered with a wee bit of stickles!

I think Alexander could very well turn out to be a favourite artist!!! I just adore this tootsie image. She is cute, yet macabre~ Right up my Alley!!! I based the sketch loosely on CPS Sketch 182 who happen to have Flower Soft as their sponsor this week. Notice the lavender line that sits behind the sentiment? Well, that's Lilac Flower Soft that I added to a line of Sticky Strip! What a quick and easy way to get a perfect line of Flower Soft. The little hand and bat eyelets are something I've had kicking around for a Dogs Age!

The Spooky sentiment is from The Stamps of Life Spooky2Scare stamp set, which is a part of a new September Release. DP is from Basic Grey and of course, the image is coloured with Copics. I used my Air Compresser to Airbursh a little Lilac around the image.........still need a little practice with this, but it's coming along!!!!

Hope you have a wonderful and last stop on the hop is Betty! I am sure she has something totally SPOOKTACULAR for you! Thanks so much for having me on the team this month Betty! I'm THRILLED to be working with you and your talented crew of designers!
