Simply Betty Stamps Punky Teens Christmas Release Bog Hop!

Welcome to the Simply Betty Stamps Punky Teens Christmas Release Bog Hop! You probably came here from Allison's Blog. If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, or if you get lost along the way, there is a list of all of the blogs participating in the hop at the end of my post!

These fun, super quirky, and daring characters are part of the Punky teens, Christmas style from Simply Betty! Just hop along and see all the fun, cute, and quirky projects everyone has prepared for you!

First, let me apologize for the poor lighting in my picture. It was dark out when I snapped this picture so I had to use the room with the best lighting... the laundry room!

Here is the card I created with my Trixie image! I think she is so cute and I HAD to give her purple hair to fit her "punky" image. I used my Bic Mark-Its and my new Tombow markers and the few Copics I own to color this image. I wasn't super happy with the performance of the Tombow markers but it was also the first time I've used them so it may be operator error. I added a little sparkle to the circles and dots on the gift with my Sakura Stardust Pen. I also used my Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl folder to emboss the green strip. To accent it more I used one of the same green markers on the raised portion so it would pop more. Then I added my ribbon but it still didn't feel quite finished... so I grabbed some flowers and a button! They were a mix of Making Memories flowers and Chick 'n Feed from Scrapbook Chicks. Now I'm really happy with it. Inside I will stamp out "Hope your day is filled with surprises" or something to that effect before I send it out!

Please follow my blog if you liked my card and take a minute to look around... there may be a post with some blog candy on it that ends today... I *may* just forget to pick a winner until Saturday morning though.... (wink)!

Now don't forget there is a special prize to be won on this hop... Guest Designer for the Month of November!

Marlene said...

Such a cute card! Love that image.

Kristi said...

I love this image. Better yet I love the fact that you did not use all of one brand to do the colors. That inspires me to mix the things I have instead of thinking I have to get this color in this brand and this one in that. Thanks.

Lelia Pierce said...

This may be my favy of all the images! Cute!
