It's Halloween again...

Well sort of right?  It is Halloween again here on my blog, but the real Halloween is just around the corner!  

Today we have three new stamps to show you!  I have been so anxious about these cuties since March!  I know that is a long time for me to hold a secret!!  Let's get on with it right, no more waiting!

First we have London Mummy!  From my new Teen Scene Halloween line.  She and her little kitty Lynx are ready for some spooky fun!  I used all Echo Park Apothecary Emporium papers!  These papers can now be found online at Simplybettystamps.com, but I will have a special package deal tomorrow which will include all 12 new papers, 2 sticker sheets, and 7 of our 8 new stamps all in one bundle for a very special price!  I will have all the details for you tomorrow along with the rest of our new images!
The sentiment is also a part of our Teen Scene Halloween release.  I don't know about you all, but I tend to color, without trying to find paper first, then end up having to buy paper to match my colors!  No wonder I have loads, and loads of paper... I keep buying!  With these images, as I mentioned before, I had them ready a long time ago, that I didn't count on using paper with only three colors; cream, black, and orange.  However, I think that it turned out pretty well considering my images were already stamped and colored before I got the paper line!


Igor Miller, I loooved that movie Igor, and love the Igor we see in The Nightmare Before Christmas.  I don't know why but I love this character and Miller is one of the cutest Igors out there!  Just look at his big cute eyes!  I re-did Miller three times!  Just couldn't get him right, the first time I had to peel him off the original card, I ended up messing up the edge of the cardstock, but I thought it looked cool!  So, I started randomly adding my double sided tape here and there on the edges, and pulling them off fast so that it would tear off pieces from the cardstock Miller is so well stamped and colored on.  It turned out quite nice don't you think?  I love it when mistakes turn out to be a "technique" I call it the, "I messed up again, but going to cover my butt by calling it a technique, technique!" LOL!  Sentiment is agian, my own which will be a set releasing with these cuties tomorrow!  The fence is from the October 31st cartridge for the Cricut machine.  


My third image for tonight is my little Teen Scene Rio as the Evil Queen.  Sadly, my 13 year old Rio is becoming obsessed with the mirror herself, TEENS!!!
Evil Queen Rio is the cutest of them all no?  Love her little Mirror on the go as she is ready to stalk the neighborhood!  Ready to collect those treats!  This card gave me grief as well!  I did not re-do her at all, but sat there staring at it for 20 minutes before I put on the finishing touches.  I was so unhappy at first, as all I had was the background paper that already had the tree and the moon printed on it.  The torn strip with the ribbon on it, and Evil Queen Rio popped up.  I thought it looked so plain and boring.  I then thought about the alphas I had and came up with the WICKED arched above Rio with the CUTE squares sentiment.  Of course I had to trow some stickles on those letters to make them pop as well.  Again, I colored Rio before I had the paper in stock, but even though the paper only has three colors on it, I feel Rio having more than just those three colors worked perfectly with the line!


Well, that is it for tonight.  Sorry if I rambled, it's late and I am just waiting for these to go live so I can go to bed!  I hope you enjoyed all these new images see you back here for more tomorrow!!

LOVE these, and LOVE the new release (so far!)! I think the new "technique" on Igor's card turned out fabulous. I think more people might be trying that out on their cards now... =D The "wicked" is fantastic on the Rio card!!! I just love those alphas, and how evenly spaced it is. I couldn't do that if you paid me. LOL Thanks for today's peeks, and I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!
