Simply Betty Stamps New Release Day!!!

I am BEYOND excited to be here with you all for my FIRST EVER Simply Betty Stamps hop as a Design Team Member for the new SBS Challenge Blog!!  You should have come here via the ever so talented Lisa's blog!!  

I am creating among amazingly talented women.  I am honored to be working for Betty who is the sweetest and OH SO TALENTED!!!  I am so proud to represent this amazing company!

Today, I used the FABULOUS Witch Betty as my new release image.  You will be able to pick up most of the GORGEOUS new Emo Halloweenies in rubber and in digi format!!  I love both.  I have used both and there is versatility and loveliness to both formats. 

I started with Witch Betty and colored her with a mix of my Prismacolor Markers and Pencils as well as my Copics and Sakura Sparkly Gel pens.  I trimmed her panel down to size and rounded 2 of the 4 corners.  I then backed her with a midnight navy cardstock and set her aside.  I went with hues of orange, blue, brown, black and greys as my palette.
 My card base is PTI Summer Sunrise measuring at 5.5 x 5.5.  My next layer is the same dark navy blue cardstock that I used to back Betty with.  The next layer is the polka dot orange paper from Fancy Pants.  I used a Martha Stewart cupcake spider web template and sponged black Brilliance Pearlescent ink in the corner.  I then added fine embossing powder and heat set it.

I used my new Martha Stewart cracked punch down along the bottom of this layer as well for added texture.

The next layer is Crate Paper from the Sweet Branch Collection.  I added it and then trimmed out a half circle enough that you can see the spider web clearly.   I finished my card off with a gorgeous velvet ribbon and a Martha Stewart 'trick or treat' candy sticker.

I added my Witch Betty panel popped up on 3-D foam adhesive.

I cannot WAIT for you to see what's in store at THE STORE!!  heheheee...

Three Lucky Winners will be receiving two FREE rubber stamps from the Emo Halloweenies; Lola and Miller, Rio and Betty, or Christian and Miller (London is not available as a rubber stamp)!  All you have to do is participate in our Blog Hop Challenge... of course there are a couple of  twists to it.  You have one day to complete your creation! It will be open until Thursday Sept. 16th at 11:59 PM! Post HERE!  The challenge? Very simple Create your best Halloween creation!  It can be a card, a treat bag, a scrapbook page, or mini album anything Halloween!  Pretty simple so far?

Here is the second catch, you must use a Simply Betty Stamp image that is NOT Halloween... so No Jude and his Shenanigan Crew, no Punky Teens.  You can use everything else!  The more non Halloween you go the more of a chance you have to win two of the six!   

The three winners will be carefully selected by both DT members of Simply Betty Stamps and Simply Betty Challenges! Good luck everyone!
