Betty's 4 Blog Hop - Betty Two Ways

A couple of weeks ago, me and a few other ladies were lucky enough to purchase the Betty's 4 stamp set, from simplybstamps. Tonight we're having a blog hop (my first) to showcase these adorable stamps.

The hop starts over on Betty's blog here, so if you have found me any other way, why not head to the start and check out everybody else's creations too. If you are following the hop, you should have reached me from Suzi's blog here.

There are 6 gorgeous stamps in the Betty's 4 collection. Rather than use them all, I have used one of the stamps to create 2 very different cards. If you want to see the other stamps, you'll need to visit the other blogs.

So, onto my cards. Here is the first -

As you can see, I used Super Betty (I love her!).

I coloured Betty using my promarkers. For this card I opted for a traditional Superman colour scheme as I wanted a comic book hero card.

I backed Betty on a lovely Cloudy sky paper I have had in my stash for many years and stamped a sentiment with my AlphaMania stamps. I've had these stamps for years and never used them. I knew they'd be useful one day!

Again, I coloured this with my promarkers. I added a strip of my new favourite ribbon -

And finally I added a little card candi -

So there you have it, card number one! For card number two, I chose a less traditional superhero design -

Again, I coloured Betty using my Promarkers.

I think Betty looks equally gorgeous in her girly colour scheme.

I backed Betty on some black card and again used papers I've had in my stash box for years (I'm loving using up all this old stash). I added some sparkly ribbon and a sentiment -

And, again, finished off with a little card candi -

I hope you like my cards. If you want to see more of the Betty 4's, join the hop! If you are already following the hop, your next stop is the lovely Louise's blog here.
