Teen Creepmas

Until recently I didn't know about the huge day called Black Friday in the USA being an Aussie but happy shopping and thanksgiving everyone.

This Betty from Simply B Stamps is having a huge sale in her store (you should definitely check it out) and releasing a new collection called Teen Creepmas.

I have coloured up 2 of these amazing images as inspiration for you - first up is Betty and Chris Mistletoe

I have used the following copic to colour
Dark Blue - B39 B34 B32
Yellow/Orange - E35 YR14 YR31 YR20
Black - BV29 BV25 BV23 B34
Red - R37 R32 R00
Teal - BG15 BG13 BG11 G00

To make the card I have cut a frame from a 6x6 print and layered it with some teal patterns and then added some stacked paper flowers.

Also today I have Batty Christmas Jude to show you and he will also be available in the Limited Run Retired Digis section of the Simply B Stamps store.

Blue - B28 B23 B21
Beige - E55 E53 YR20
Skin - E04 E11 E21 E00 E000
Green - G28 YG25 YG03
Black - W7 W5 W3 W1

This time I have matted the image and added it to a piece of tree limb printed paper then added the stripy paper border and a strip of nightmare before Christmas tape. I didn't feel that this image needed too much embellishing as it could stand alone in it own right.

Hope I have inspired you to try some of these images for yourself
Happy Crafting and shopping....

Nativity Judes

Betty from Simply B Stamps is also releasing an "Out of the Vault" collection called Nativity Judes featuring some amazing Nativity images, and it is great to see some images showing the true spirit of Christmas. You can pick them up here

This time I have done something a bit different and made a decoration with the lovely "Ariel as Mary"

I have coloured her with copics in a monochromatic scheme and made her into a star decoration by doing the following...

1. Cut 2 stars from kraft card
2. Cut a smaller star from 1 of the stars to create the border for the front
3. Stick a piece of clear plastic to the opening in the front star (I used the plastic that clear stamps come on)
4. Stick image onto the back star
5. Stick 3D squares in a border all the way around the back of the front star (make sure it seals completely so glitter doesn't leak out)
6. Pour some glitter into the front and stick the back star to the front making sure it seals completely

Viola one decoration..........

Why not have a go at your own using one of the amazing Nativity Jude images or a whole collection of them
