May 2014 Hump Day Hop: A Cut Above!

Greetings! It's time for the May 2014 Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month, the theme I chose was "A Cut Above." I wanted everyone to use lots of die cuts. To use the Sizzix, Silhouette, or any other type of die cutting tools you may have. So here's the card that I made.

The Bombshell Stamps that I used for my card was Vintage Raceway (you can get it in digi and rubber form!) and King of the Road (for my sentiment). 

I colored the car with alcohol markers, in colors reminiscent of Plum Crazy, one of my favorite colors that hot rods like these sometimes came in. 

My fabulous dies is a complete set from Dreamweaver Stencils. They are called Nesting Frames. Now, go get hopping! Below is the full hop list. Thanks for stopping by Have an inspiring day!

Wow. This is awesome. I would love a car in that color. Specifically, I'd love a Turbo PT Cruiser in that shade of purple.

I love how it appears as though the car is bursting from the card!
