Bargain Betty

Hey, there.  Hope you had a great weekend.  They are always too short (and too hot this time of year), but I enjoyed mine anyway. Hubby and I went to a nautical flea market, where he bought a tackle box.  I was surprised he didn't spend more money, but then, he has a lot of fishing stuff already.

I got to play with one of the Moe Wubba stamps that I usually don't reach for.  I made a couple of tags with Bargain Betty.

I  stamped Betty on white cardstock, and colored her in with Copic Markers.  I cut her out with a Nestability die.  I used part of another stamp (Stamp Out Empty Mailboxes) to get the rubber stamp image.  I made small slits in the sides of the shopping cart and inserted the stamps so it looks like she's shopping for rubber stamps (and getting a good deal - she must be shopping at My Paper Moon).

I took a manilla tag and smooshed green staz-on ink on the top part of it.  I took some complementary patterned paper and layered on the bottom part of the tag.  Then I put the Bargain Betty layer on top and stamped a small "Thanks" (Hero Arts).

I used a Mrs. Grossman lace sticker on the top part of the patterned paper.

This is the other tag I made.  I did it basically the same way. Only the patterned paper and colors changed.  And I used more of the lace sticker.

Hope you have enjoyed these tags as much as I enjoyed making them.

I hope you get to do something crafty this week (and keep out of the heat).
