Double your pleasure...

...double your fun!  Today you get a two for one!

On the Simply B Stamps blog we are previewing the new Teen Scene Birthday Munsters Collection.  Needless to say, I'm just a wee bit behind having gone to CHA Convention in California.  Have I told you yet that I hung out with our very own Betty Roberts, creator of so much goodness!?  Well, I did!  I had such a good time and almost hated to come back home.  However, all good things must come to an end and now I'm back to reality and back to creating cuteness for your viewing pleasure. 

First up is Birthday Pugsly Christian.  He was actually previewed yesterday but since I'm a day behind, you get to see my version today.  He's such a cutie, too!  My image is on Neenah Classic Crest and colored with Copics.  I added my own grass to polish off the image which is matted on Bazzill.  My card base is Bazzill and my patterned paper is Doodlebug Design's Surprise Party.  My sentiment is from A Muse and stamped in Tim Holtz gathered twigs distress ink.  I added red grosgrain ribbon from my stash for that little extra pop of color.  Now there you have it, a simple card without a lot of fuss!

Next us is Party Lola!  This girl is ready to throw on her party hat for a good time and a little rock and roll!  As with Christian, Lola is on Neenah Class Crest and colored with Copics.  There's just something about Lola that makes me want to color funky hair.  I don't know what it is, maybe it's a secret desire to have my own hair in some fun shade like purple or pink.  It must be my inner punk rocker!  Anyway, this little Sweetie is colored with Copics and matted on Bazzill.  My base is Bazzill and my patterned papers are from Three Bugs in a Rug's Butterfly Kisses.  This time I used a piece of the patterned paper to create a party hat complete with pom-poms!  I typed my sentiment on the computer and printed it out to layer and mount with pop dots.  Lola is also pop-dotted with a double stack of pop dots to make sure the pom-pom trim on the hat fit underneath. 


Both cards were relatively simple to create and so much fun to color!  I hope you have enjoyed them and please come back tomorrow for another sneak peak.  You know you want to see!

Thanks for stopping by!
