Hello! Welcome to a fabulous Blog Hop featuring the totally awesome stamps of Simply Betty!!! If you are looking for the Friends Having Fun Color Challenge, please click HERE. Simply Betty is one of our fabulous sponsors for the month of July! The DT even got to play with the awesome My Kids Emo World stamps! Betty herself challenged us to “Get Grungy with Simply Betty Stamps!” The Smeared and smudged DT was to create something cute and grungy… use fun grungy elements, the colors black, grey, and any other combo you want to throw in the mix. Plus, use some metal embellishments! Here’s my card featuring the lovely Rio. Isn’t she fabulous? And I LOVE her bat! Let me take a moment to tell you how amazing these stamps are. Not only are they made of super thick red rubber, but they are mounted on foam and SCROLLL cut around the shape! SCROLL cut! How amazing is that??? That’s quality people, so if you’re on the fence about buying some stamps, well jump over to our side and buy them! They are awesome!!! Here’s a close up of Rio. I colored her and her sweet bat in with my colored pencils. Incidentally, I had her all colored up and then I saw Jen’s latest Wild Flower Kids challenge was to use Lime Green, Purple and Black! How funny! Esp. since she’s on Betty’s Design Team! So, I am entering this card into the latest WFK challenge too. See the purple background? I made it using bleach and a textured cloth. I love doing that with my colored cardstock! You never know exactly what shade the paper will become… and it always looks so cool! You can click on any of the pictures to see them bigger. For my hardware, I used staples (one of my ‘staples’ in paper crafting!), and these cool discs I use for my jewelry making. I thought they looked pretty cool together.So, now I would love it if you took a look at not only the rest of the Smeared and Smudged Design Team, but also Betty’s blog and one of her fab DT member’s blog, Debbie. I hope you get super inspired!Terra ~ Tori ~ Alison (that’s me) ~ Kelli ~ Jean ~ Kathi ~ Sarah ~ Danielle ~ Black Dragon ~ Kim ~ Lady Brayton ~ Meredith ~ LisaBetty (her card will be a little late)~ DebbieNow, how would you like to win some of these faboo stamps???
