Simply Betty Stamps - Jude and the Rockers Christmas Release

Hi there!  I have three cute cards for you today from Simply Betty Stamps.  These are from the new Jude and the Rockers Christmas collection and they are just adorable!  You can see the entire collection on the web site for Simply Betty Stamps or you may visit our blog for more samples of each new image.  My first card is Big Gift Lilly.  She is just the cutest little thing and kind of reminds me of Cindy Loo Who!  Lilly is colored with Copics, distressed with a little Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink and layered on Neenah Classic Crest, Bazzill and My Mind's Eye "be Merry" papers.  I added a few dew drops that I colored with my Copics and cut out three little trees that I pop-dotted in the lower right corner.  I love her rockin' PJ's!

Next up is Carrots for Rudolph Ariel!  She's just so stinkin' cute!  My youngest son has decided he wants to leave out carrots for Rudolph this year.  After all, he is the one leading the whole sleigh and pulling Mr. Chubby around all night!  I guess he's right so I've conceded and carrots will become a new tradition in our household.   Well Ariel is just sooo cute she had to be colored with Copics!  I cut her out with a Spellbinders Nestie and did the next size up as well for layering.  I added a little Tim Holtz Distress Ink and layered her over Bazzill and Bo Bunny papers.  I added two layers of ribbon and using a little of the Bazzill I used for the base of the card, I cut out the snowflakes with a die from My Favorite Things and added bling with some Stickles.  I love how she came out!

Last, but certainly not least, is cute little Cookies for Santa Jude.  He reminds me of my son's best friend, Michael, except Michael has the most darling curls you have ever seen.  There's just something about Jude that makes me think of Michael!  Again, I used my Copics to color him, added some Bundled Sage Tim Holtz Distress Ink  and layered him with Bazzill and the two printed papers.  I hate to say this, but, I don't know which company to give credit to for these cute papers.  There was nothing printed on the back so I'm at a loss.  They really are perfect for this particular image.  The Santa faces are glittered so I wanted to keep my embellishments to a minimum and used just a little gingham ribbon as an accent.  Sometimes simple really is the way to go!

That's it for my preview cards for this collection release and I do hope you enjoyed looking at them.  Hopefully they've inspired you to head to Simply Betty Stamps and purchase these cute little rascals.  I'm sure they will find their way into your heart and spark your creativity!  Happy stamping and thanks for looking!
