The Best of Tim Burton...

The Burton Chibis are in the house! In the Simply Betty Stamps web store that is :)  Be sure to head over and pick them up before they are gone, cause I think these babies are gonna sell FAST!!

I have a couple more cards for you today using more of the Burton characters.  First is my all time favorite, maybe because Johnny Depp played him?  It's Edward Scissorhands!  I totally remember the first time I saw this movie and  just fell in love.  Can't even tell you how many times I've seen it since :)

This is like the bestest ever depiction of Edward!  I was going to do a snow scene with him, cause I love when he creates the ice sculptures...but since he's decked in in his hot leather duds I kept it monochromatic, adding some K & Co paper  and then icicles using a Martha Stewart punch and Star Dust stickles.

The snowflake is cut with a Spellbinders die, also with stickles, and then the A Muse "Got Snow" sentiment on top.  Even though it's a pretty CAS card for me, I just love it!!

Next up is Miss Betty Burton...no, she's not really a Burton character, but I know our kick-butt owner Betty Boo would LOVE to be in a Burton film!  She's been colored with copics as well and added to some fun paper from Doodlebug Designs.  I used another Martha Stewart punch...Drippy Goo (who knew Martha could do Halloween so well??)

The Going Batty sentiment and the fun black velvet bats are both from Stampendous!  

Be sure to not only head to the Simply Betty Stamps blog to leave some love...but also to the DT blogs!  There will be random winners chosen for one each of the new stamps!

  9. These are both cool cards Cyndi but I have to say my fave is the Betty one. Turquoise is a fave color of mine but the best part is that sentiment. Lol!! That sentiment just cracks me up because Ive been referring to Betty as Batty Betty ever since her bat story.
