Simply Betty Stamps - Back to School Emos - Release Day and Blog Hop!!!!




Sorry!!! I copied the wrong blog list earlier.  It's fixed now.  Sorry for any confusion!

Woohoo!!!!  Release Day is here!!!  In celebration of SBS "Back to School Emos"
 release, Simply Betty and her fabulous Design Team is having a blog hop!!!  I have been lucky enough to join the ranks of the DT as a guest designer.  I hope I've been doing an okay job for Betty and her Team. They are such a talented group!  I'll be sad come the end of August as that will be the end of my stay as GDTM.  Be sure to keep up with Betty's blog as you never know when her next GDT call will be.  Let me tell you, it's been an awesome experience!


For the blog hop I chose to work with Miller and Rio, my two favorite images from this line!  I'll keep the descriptions short as there is lots of hopping to do!  Both images are colored with copic markers and are mounted on DCWV "grade school" mat stack. 

 I like to leave my cards without sentiments until I'm ready to use them.  Doing this enables me to make my cards ahead of time and tailor them to fit any occasion.  Another thing I tend to do is color my images...usually a bunch of them...ahead of time so card assembly goes quickly.  I find for me, my coloring mojo and design mojo seem to be in separate compartments and are not always present at the same time.  It just works better for me this way.

Here is Miller.  Although fashionable and cute as can be, he is looking a bit confused on his first day of class.  Perhaps he can't find his room in his new school?  You know how guys are about asking directions!  His expression is so priceless and endearing, I'm sure some cute girl will come to his rescue!


Next comes Rio.  She is too kewl for skool in her mini-skirt and skully accessories!  Check out her knee-high socks and converse shoes.  Rio definitely makes a statement!  Here she is...wandering the halls, blowing bubbles, and checking out the new boys in class.  Rio is cute as can be...and knows it~!  Look out world...here she comes!

  8. Awesome card! Fabulous coloring!

    I'm the same way as you, I often leave the sentiments off my cards, and color images up ahead of time. Card assembly is much quicker that way!
