From the Crypt...

Hi, I have  a peek into The Simply B Stamps Crypt with some of the Emo Christmas stamps!  This was the original line that made me completely gaga over Simply B Stamps!  I have 4 projects to share with you today starting with Bahumbug Christian!

Christian is such a hoot!  He reminds me of my Scrooge of a hubby :)  He hates Christmas prep, but loves the day itself!  I colored him with my copics then cut him out with Wonky Squares from Spellbinders and did a bunch of stitching with my machine.  The papers for this card are from Echo Park last year which I got from the Simply B Store (she's out now, but there's a TON more EP paper there!!)

On the top of the card I punched a border with my Martha Stewart Icicle punch then covered it and Santa's fluffy trim with some stickles.

Next is Prezzies for Lola!  She is such a little doll, complete with her bat friends (check the present!!)  She's colored to match papers from a cute little pad I picked up that was imported from England.  A bit of black tulle and shimmery turquoise organdy for a bow and she's perfect!

To Lola I added some hints of sparkle with my Spica markers AND Gelly Roll Glaze pens!

Next is my FAV of the bunch, elfinmiller.  He just inspired me to have so much fun creating this card!  My colors are a bit non-traditional, but oh-so SBS!  I added some Aged silver EP from Stampendous! around the edges of some of the panels and on the top of the ornament.

Here's a closeup of Miller:

The ornament is cut with a Tim Holtz Ornament die from Sizzix, then I embossed it with Spot & Dots Cuttlebug folder, inked the raised parts with Spiced Marmalade TH Distress ink then embossed that with Clear EP from Stampendous!  The bottom border is from the Border It Kit from Lifestyle Crafts.

And finally, this is the page that I submitted earlier this year for Betty's Design Team call.  I love it as much now as then!  I used Candy Cane London for my tag.  Papers are from Little Yellow Bicycle and Love, Elsie (KI Memories).  The ornaments are the same Tim Holtz die embossed with the Spiderweb CB folder.  Skull was from the dollar bin at Michael's.

So don't forget when you hop over to the SBS store to check out some of the older stamps too...just as fun!  The projects today use the 4 of the 6 Emos that are still available in clear stamp form :)  Thanks for joining me today for From the Crypt!
