Leap Into Action! February Blog Hop @ Bombshell Stamps

The theme for this month's Hump Day Hop at Bombshell Stamps is Leap Into Action!   Since, it's leap year and the hop falls on Leap Day - Alison, the hostess, has challanged us to make a project with our Bombshell's where they are heroes. 

You should have arrived here from Kickisen's blog. If not, be sure to check out the blog hop list below! 

For my card, I dressed up my Bombshell Angel with the Police Officer digital stamp outfit.  

Some of this card was made using my electronic cutter (the eCraft) and the program SureCutsALot3 (SCAL3).  The card, rectangle and oval were created with SCAL3's basic shapes and the font is also from SCAL3 with a shadow background layer.  These were then cut with my eCraft machine.

I also broke out my embossing folders to add some texture.  The bombshell officer was stamped and printed (this is a mix of rubber stamps and digital stamps), colored in with copics, fussy cut with my scissors (fancy cut? I've heard both... pretend I just said whichever you prefer!), and then adhered to the blue oval with some pop dots to give this card some dimension. I also used Copics on the edges of some of my elements instead of ink.

Your next stop is Kathi's blog. Head on over and see what awesome project she has come up with!

Hope you are enjoying the Hump Day Hop!!  Happy Leap Day!
