Simply B Stamps Previews Day 1 Norse Gods


I am so thrilled to be here with the first of four days of previews for Simply B(etty) Stamps!  I was asked to be a guest designer for this awesome release by Miss Betty Boo as she knows I have a special fondness for the subject!  Meet the Teen Scene Norse Gods!  I am SO excited to be debuting these images this week!  There will be four days of previews, culminating with the release on Friday.  As always, Betty and the girls are showing off the new images with a blog hop!  If you have arrived here from Trish's blog then you are on the right track!  If you have stumbled upon this post by happy accident head back to the SBS blog so you don't miss any of the design team's awe-inspiring creations!   Here is the complete order in case you get lost:


Regan (*you are HERE*)

First up is everyone's favorite trickster, Loki!  Jude Loki to be exact!  This mischievous fella has been colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers, fussy cut, and popped up with foam squares.  I used a sketch found at Forever Friends (#48) as my layout.  Papers are Lemon Flower by DCWV.  I simply added a few black pearls in two corners to let the papers and image really steal the show!  The sentiment is stamped on a ribbon banner die cut from Spellbinders and is from the My Favorite Things set called Party Girl.  It was just too perfect for Loki!  As a side note, some of you know I had a beloved cat named Loki who was with me for 16 years before she passed away last year so  have a special fondness for this god.


Next up is the mighty god of Thunder, Christian Thor!  As well as being Norse deities some of you will recognize these two as Marvel comic characters.  If you haven't see the movies Thor or The Avengers I highly recommend both!  If for nothing else than the yummy eye candy that is Chris Hemsworth!  Anyway, here is my card...

  
Christian Thor is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers as well.  I used my largest Classic Circles Nestabilities Spellbinders die to cut him out and then sponged around the image with Distress Ink in Antique Linen.  The sketch is from The Crazy Challenge (#131).  The papers are from Recollections, Michaels own line of products, but they are the same designs as My Mind's Eye - Union Square.  I was a little stumped at first for embellishments but I ended up using a brad and my Sizzix Decorative Flourishes die.  The inside reads "You Are My Hero" and is from the My Favorite Things set called Good Knight. 



You may have seen these two before as they were offered as a special gift with purchase from Betty a few releases back.  But now they will be available to everyone on Friday!  Check back tomorrow to see what other Norse fun we have in store for you!
