TSC - Angelic Angel Ann

Well it's a bittersweet day.  It's my last challenge with The Stamping Chef.  However, in the new year Tamara (owner/designer) will be opening Slinky Tart which is very exciting!!!

My card this week is using Angelic Angel Ann.  She's not slated to make the transition to Slinky Tart, so if you like her, now's the chance to grab her!

I really loved colouring all the folds of her robe.  I also use some spica pens on the edges of her wings for some very fine glitter (doesn't photo well).
This is one of the last challenges over at The Stamping Chef so don't put off playing along!

There's a coupon code if you want to stock up on TSC images - you'll kick yourself if you don't!

SBS Christmas Boudoirs and an exciting announcement!

Happy Friday!!!  SOOO excited to show off these super duper awesome new Simply B Stamps.

We all loved her first boudoir line.  Aaaand, I don't know about you, but sometimes I get bored with Christmas images.  So when Betty told me she was doing a holiday line called of boudoir images I knew I'd have some new favourites.  You may have purchased these as a secret release, and they're now available to everyone.

But then came the even better news.  She said she was drawing up something sexy but classy and I jokingly said "oh, me?".  She said "yes" and I thought she was kidding....until she asked if I'd like to be part of the boudoir line!  UMMM YES!!!!  Betty and I both share a love for that kind of thing, so I was thrilled about the opportunity.  And I've wanted to be part of this DT so badly!

The line has four cuties complete with sentiments.  

Figgy Pudding Corinne

I used some frantage around her and added flock to her corset.

Betty has two characters.  First up is Lump of Coal Betty

and this one is quite obviously Santa Baby Betty.

Having the song in mind I blinged her rings out and added tinsel glitter to trim her lingerie. 

And last but NOT least.... Melissa Mistletoe and Tiny
Betty even gave me a whole story about how the naughty elf walked in on her while she was dressing!!  lol.  

Don't you love them?  They're all available NOW over in the new items section of the store.  Be sure to show off all your makes on the SBS fanpage too!

TSC - Done for the Year!

I'm very happy to say I AM done for the year!!!  Christmas shopping that is!  Unfortunately I thought I was smart doing all my shopping online, and they went and mailed my packages to be picked up at the post office in the mall!!!!  Lol....best laid plans....

What I'm not done are my Christmas cards. You know how it is - when you're a card maker everyone expects a handmade one.  Luckily when images are this fun it's easy to enjoy making them!

This is Checking out (for the year) by the Stamping Chef.  EVERY single week is a new challenge over on the challenge blog.  The Stamping Chef will be going through some branding changes soon, so be sure to scoop all the images you want before the changeover....no guarantee they'll make the cut!  Also please join the Slinky Tart fb group to keep up to date with the exciting changes!

I coloured her with Copics, added some frantage and flowers, and some white flock to her outfit to give it texture.
Thanks for looking and check back later this week for a whooooole bunch more Christmas cards!
