Simply Betty Christmas Emo Preview Number One!!!

Welcome everyone!!! I'm thrilled to be here with you today to bring you the first of many Christmas Emo stamp releases!!!


Today we are previewing Tree Trimming Rio!!  I was so exited to start the holiday season!!!  I know, I know, it's early but it's still fun!!!

I started by printing Rio out and coloring her with my Copics and Prismacolor markers as well as my Sakura gel pens.  I then sponged the edges with my spongy dauber and Brilliance Pearlescent ink.  I matted her to a scrap of SU! DP and stitched around the edges.

I then set my main image aside.

My card base measures 6 x 5 1/4.  All the DP is SU! from last season.  I matted the red polka dot to my evergreen cardbase and haphazardly stitched the edges.

I then added a strip embellishment of ivory with red polkadots with gold check sewn with a red snowflake pattern stitched in red with my machine.

I used Tim Holtz distressing ink in Vintage Photo on the edges of this strip embellishment to make it pop a little more.

I adhered that to the card and then used white, linen baker's twine wrapped multiple times and threaded through an evergreen button tied with a bow.

I hope you have enjoyed my preview!!!  Make sure you see all of the fabulously talented SBS ladies and leave lots of love!!

Crafty Hugs!
