Sweet Tilly another Simply Betty release

Welcome Tilly isn't she just adorable!  So on this card I colored Tilly first then used an embossing pen and pearl glitter embossing powder for the spots on her dress and her bracelet.  I set her aside and started on the card.  I knew I wanted a spring card so what is more spring than flowers climbing a garden wall trellis.  I cut a rectangle hole out of my card and a backing paper, free handed a trellis with eighth inch strips of white card.  The flowers were all made with my cuttlebug and the Dahlia nestabilities set.  the roses on the front are made with 3 cuts from the smallest die and the inside flower from the smallest 2.  The leaves are freehand cut from green wrapping paper ribbon, as well as the ribbon on the inside of the card.  I used my grass punch as well and viola!  Hope you like it, cus I really liked how she turned out.

Scott a new Digi from Simply Betty

So here is what I came up with for Scott. Isn't he a cutie!  First I colored him up with sharpies and Copics ( I finally got a few, 4 to be exact, but it's a start).  I cut out a basket shape on the front of my card then started a basket weave. The handle is made using braided ribbon.  I then used a punch for the grass and layered it in the basket.  I used the same for the grass on the bottom of the card.  I used a light blue and a white ink and a cut flower for the clouds.  It looked a lil too plain so I enlarged the eggs from the Scott digi and added them into the grass.  I used a large purple egg that is really a sticky note (target for $1) for a place to write on the inside. Simple but I liked the way he turned out..Hope you like him.

Anniversary card

I really liked how this turned out I don't have the stampin up punch that you are supposed to use or the circle punch but I improvised and this is what I came up with.  Check out for the tutorial.  Valita's fresh fold if you want to search and it is the valentine heart punch couple.

Simply Betty Let's Celebrate!

Woohoo it's my first time on a design team and I am super excited to be here.  For my first card I chose to use Scott from the Sweet Gothic Kids B-day set.  A hard choice because they are all so adorable.  I wanted to make a more simple streamlined "guys" card so here is what I came up with.  I used a pirate stamp set to create a window then cut that out on my background paper and card.  I loved Scott's tattoo so I used that as an idea to create my own background papers.  I then just added a blue and white striped ribbon to pull out a little of the color from his jeans. Hope you like him arrrr!
