A Simple Thank You Card

Happy Friday!

For this simple card I used Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black with the Skull and Snake stamp and safety pin stamps from Panther Tattoo by Bombshell Stamps.  The banner again is from Banner Sayings. The stamps were colored in with Prisma colored pencils and the edges of the card inked with Colorbox Black ink.

Hope you all have a crafty weekend!  And if you are watching it, enjoy the SuperBowl this weekend! It's being hosted right here in my home state!

Forgetful Me!

Hi All!

I made this card using Rose's Portrait for a Muse Monday this month at Bombshell Stamps.  And while I posted it on the Bombshell Stamps blog, I regretfully forgot to post it on my own blog!  

For this card I used my one of my favorite zebra printed kraft papers.  I am running out of it too! It was in one of those multi scrap packs available at one of the major craft stores.  The sentiment and roses are from Rose's Portrait stamp set by Bombshell Stamps.  The bling is by Hero Arts and twine by Doodlebug.  The stamped images were colored in with Prisma colored pencils.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop!

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop!  You should have arrived here from Alison's blog.  If not, please start at the beginning -

This month, Alison chose the theme "Animal Instincts".  Here's my card!
  I am in love with Hero Arts Neon Inks so I stamped the Panther in neon blue ink and stamped it onto white glossy paper. I used neon green and orange washi tape for the bottom and stamped the Thank You banner in Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black). 

Stempelientje's Blog is the next stop on the hop, head on over to see her fantastic project!

Thanks for hopping with us!

Muse Monday at Bombshell Stamps

Hi Everyone!

It's Muse Monday over at Bombshell Stamps, and this month the Rose's Portrait Set is being showcased. (It's on sale too for the whole month.)  
  I used a masking technique for the neon orange area. I used one of the dies from Labels One by Spellbinders and die cut it out of a piece of paper. Then I placed the paper over my card front so the opening was in the middle of the card and taped it down. I stamped the 'Thinking of You' sentiment from Rose's Portrait in Hero Arts neon orange ink horizontally and then on an angle and then once in black ink, then outlined the bracket/label with a neon orange marker by Letraset and finally removed the diecut template. I stamped the Rose with Banner stamp in Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black) and colored it with Letraset Neon Pink, Neon Green, Neon Yellow Markers and fussy cut it out.  I hand wrote the Love sentiment with a fine tip Sharpie marker. I added 3 strips of washi tape to the card and adhered the Rose with pop dots.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please check out the Bombshell Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!

'Putting On The Glitz'

Hi Everyone!

  It's Pin-Up Challenge time at Bombshell Stamps and Ms. January has picked the theme of 'Putting On The Glitz'!  My first thought when hearing this challenge was some kind of project using white glitter paper.  So I did.
  The angel wings on the earrings are stamps from the 'Sacred Heart' set, which is one of my new to me sets. They just arrived, and when I saw them I knew the wings needed to be used for this project.  The Thank You banner on the card is from the 'Banner Sayings' set
  The wings were stamped in Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink onto white glitter paper from an old DCWV Summer Dreams 8x8 stack I have hanging around in my craft room. I stamped out 2 of each wing and adhered them together so that each wing is actually double sided.  I painted on a really thin coat of Glossy Accents on each side so that the shimmer of the glitter would still be really visible.  This was super hard for me as you all know I love to layer on the Glossy Accents.  I was good though, I refrained from putting on a thicker coat.  After the wings were all dry, I punched some holes on top and attached my earrings together with my components.  The pink/white beads are Czech crackle glass and some of my favoritest beads ever.  I also added one strand of bling to each earring because we are 'putting on the glitz'!
  The glitter paper that I used for the card is from the same stack as the wings.  I stamped the thank you banner in Ranger Archival Jet Black ink and smudged it underneath a little with a q-tip to give it a bit of a shadowy effect.  I added some diamond gems by Hero Arts to the bottom left and some chain leftover from the earrings on top of the card.

  If you would like to use your Bombshell Stamps and create your own 'Putting On The Glitz' project, why not head over to the January Pin-Up Challenge Post at the Bombshell Stamps Blog and link it up?  I hear there are prizes to be won!
  Unfortunately it's night time (my favorite time to craft!), so it's really hard to see the shimmery glitter of the paper in the pics.  Hopefully you can tell from the above picture - which I took before I assembled my earrings together. (Sorry for the flash glare!). 
   As you can tell I'm currently still working on 2 of my New Year's Resolutions!  1- Stop procrastinating and 2 - Learn how to take better photos of my craft items (and take them during the day!). 
  What are some of your New Year's Resolutions?  Tell me below!

Happy Craftin'!
