Simply Betty Stamps - Jude and His Shenanigan Crew Christmas Blog Hop!!

Good Morning Y'all!!!  I'm SOOOOOOOOOO thrilled to be in on this amazing Simply Betty Hop!!!  Wait until you see the entire Jude line dressed up for the Holidays!!!  They are all ENTIRELY too cute!!!

All these new cuties will also be on sale along with the rest of the sale we have going on until the end of the month!  Jude and his Crew Christmas digis will be only $3.00!!
 
To add some excitement to the hop we also have brand spanking new Echo Park Wintertime paper and embellishments!  The whole collection from papers, to kits is available now and ready to ship!


In my creation today I used Elf Nelly and Tangled Mikey.  These images are all SO fun to color.  My next card will definitely use paper piecing!!!  hehehehe...
I used Nelly on my exterior.  Starting with a card base of Lipstick Red from The Paper Company (sold at ACM) my base measures 5.5 x 4.25.  I used all scraps (mostly mat stack) from my holiday stash from last year - which always makes me happy!!  I colored Nelly with my Copics and gold paint pen.  I also used my clear Sakura gel pen to sparkle up her lollypop.  
I tiered 3 different papers using my large, embossed, scallop punch for the lower half of my card, stamping "Believe in Elves" from TCP on the right hand side.  I added an olive ribbon embellished with gold cord and adhered Nelly on top of it all. 
My interior had the adorable Mikey with a sentiment, also from TCP, "Be Merry and Bright" - fitting, I thought, considering the position that Mikey has himself tangled in!!
He is also colored with my Copics and trimmed out.  I used the same red/white gingham paper to create a smaller scallop - apron lace punch - border along the bottom.  
I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!!!  Now grab yourself a nice cup of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa and off you go a hoppin'!

Have fun and leave lots of love!!!
Crafty Hugs!
