Betty's 3 Blog Hop

Hello lovely people!  I am very happy to be taking part in a special blog hop.  A bunch of fans of Simply Betty Stamps were lucky enough to get a hold of a pre-release set of the Betty's 3 digi stamps.  They are Movie themed and you can get them here for a limited time.  They will only be digis until they go into production as clear stamps I believe.

You should have come here from Leslie's Blog.   If you just happened here by chance and want to complete the full blog hop, it starts at the Simply Betty Stamps Blog.  There are some very talented folks and some adorable Bettys 3 along the way, so it is well worth the time to hop through.

Anyway, the pre-release set had six in the series, but as there are only so many hours in a day, and so much cooperation from my back, I only managed to color and card up these two adorable Bettys...





 
As you might have guessed, the first Betty is Lord of the Rings themed.  I colored the image with Flex Markers and used Papermania metallic markers for the headpiece and the belt buckle.  For the insert, I took the sentiment, which is also a Simply B Stamps design, and gave it a textured metal appearance in Craft Artist Professional.  It doesn't come out very well in the pic unfortunately.  The swirl paper is from Hunkydory, and the other papers are just random bits from my stash.  The circles are all cut out using Grand Nestabilities dies and the border is punched with a edge puncher.


Next, please say hello to Sherlock Holmes Betty.


Again, Betty Holmes is colored with Flex Markers.  I used bits of card and ribbon from my stash.  The black card just under the image has flecks of gold in it which you can just make out in the photo.  I added the gold corner flourish stickers to pick the shiny gold up a bit.

I've not finished the inside of this one yet, but as I have company, and the hop is starting in two hours I will have to leave it there.  I can assure you it is going to be lovely.  Actually, I really can, because the sentiment is another by Simply B Stamps!

Well, as this is a blog hop, you should get hopping....(but I would of course love for you to leave a comment before you go).  The next stop on your hopping tour is Teresa so stop by to see her Bettys 3 creation(s) and let her know what you think.

Take care and thank you so much for visiting.  Please come back soon if you can :)

xx Denise
