Bombshell Stamps August Hump Day Hop!

Hi All!

Thanks for hopping along with us!  You should have arrived here from Alison's blog. She has chosen the theme "Gilded" (ie: Metallics) for this month's hop!

I created a card with the "Panther Tattoo" set.  I used the Skull and Snake Stamp, as well as the safety pin stamp and embossed them with Silver Metallic Embossing Powder by Zing!

The card base and elements are the Step Card Center Panel by Lori Whitlock and were cut out with my Silhouette Cameo. The black cardstock is by Bazzill and the printed cardstock is from a Halloween 6x6 paper pad, unfortunately I can't recall the manufacturer right now, so I will post it tomorrow evening.

Thanks for hopping by! Your next stop is over to Alaine's blog, to see her awesome project!

Dead Necessities Easel Card

Over at the Bombshell Stamps Blog, Ms. August had issued her challenge earlier this month. See the below link for more info:
-Ms. August, Suzi McKenzie's, Pin-Up Challenge - Easel-y Does It! Create an easel card

I used the Dead Necessities Stamp Set by Bombshell Stamps, my Silhouette Cameo, and a really fun Easel Card by Lori Whitlock (available in the Silhouette Studio Store) to create my take on this challenge.
 I love this key background! So much that it was actually what started this whole card. I chose this paper, and then chose the stamp set and colors from it. The key cardstock is from last year's Halloween 6x6 paper pad from Doodlebug.
I covered the coffins with Glossy Accents to make them pop a little more without putting pop dots behind them. The skull and rose however, are a different story. They definitely have pop dots behind them. Lol.

Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a relaxing, if not crafty, weekend!
