Ready for a Luau! - Tiki Straw Toppers and Drink Markers

Hey Bombshells!

Having a Luau this summer?!  Here are two easy and fun ways to dress up your Luau Cocktails using the 'Tiki Party' stamps!
Happy and Hungry Tikis make fun straw toppers!

Supplies:
Tiki Party Stamp Set - Bombshell Stamps
-Copic Markers
-Stamping Paper
-Black Cardstock
-ModPodge and brush or sponge
-washi tape
-scissors
-Tsukineko Memento Ink
-bendable straws

  First, stamp the Tiki Stamps onto your stamping paper, color with Copic Markers, and fussy cut out with your scissors.
  1 - Next, adhere the cut out tiki god with Mod Podge onto black cardstock and then Mod Podge the top.
 2 -  Let them dry completely. After they are dry and no longer sticky, fussy cut them out with your scissors.
 3 &4 -  Here you can see the front and back. Adding the black cardstock to the back hides that marker that was showing through!
5 & 6 - Next, take your bendy straw and hold it with the bend just a little lower then the top of the tiki god's head. Attach the straw to the tiki dude using two pieces of thin washi tape.
7 & 8 - Sideview^^
  And that's it! A super easy and fun way to adorn your cocktails at your summer Luau!


  Using ribbon and the 'music, fun, cocktails' sentiment stamps, you can create a quick drink marker for your cocktail or wine glasses!
Supplies:
-White Ribbon
- Black Staz-On Ink
-music, fun, cocktails stamps from Tiki Party Set
-beads (in different colors)
-safety pins

  Stamp the sentiments onto the ribbon with Staz-On Ink and let dry. Next, place your ribbon around the glass stem, add a bead onto a safety pin and attach it to the ribbon to hold it closed. Use different colored beads for additional cocktail glasses.
Happy Craftin'!

A Cut Above! Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop

Hey All!

Welcome to Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop!  This month Alison challenged us to break out our die-cutting machines and use them in our projects.

You should have arrived here from Suzi's blog.  If not, be sure to start at the beginning so you don't miss a thing!

Using my Silhouette Cameo, the Hawaiian Girl Stamp Set, and files from SVGCuts.com, I created a Mahalo Gift Box!


Hawaiian Girl and the Mahalo Sentiment are from Bombshell Stamps "Hawaiian Girl" set and were colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. The sand dollar and gift box are from SVGCuts.com's "Wet N Wild" SVG Kit and was die-cut using my Silhouette Cameo. Patterned Paper and starfish are from Echo Park's "Paradise Beach" Collection.



Thanks for hopping with us! Your next stop is to Angie's Blog!
