Bombshell Blog Hop: Boy Toy

This is the second blog hop I’m in today! Phew! If you’re looking for the Artful INKables hop, please click HERE. But, take a peek at what’s happening in this post first! ;}

Tomorrow is the first day of July. Which means that as of tomorrow, I am officially Ms. Bombshell!!! I am so stoked to kick off my month long term with this fabulous blog hop!!! Here’s what Kas challenged us to do:

Time for being hot...it's summer!
So what's the deal with a "Boy Toy" bloghop.
Well, it's dedicated to the men in our lives.
Doesn't have to be a boyfriend or husband..... maybe a soldier, a father, or just a masculine theme or card.
Bombshell stamps have always been great for "manly" things, but now more than ever.
Just think about the new digi clothes stamps for the Bombshell Angel. The policeman, fireman, etc... they are GREAT for sending out that perfect card.
AND MAN...the new motorcycle stamps !!!
Perhaps your project will just use masculine colors...maybe a great Father's Day project.


Love this challenge! But, I changed it up a teeny bit! Take a look!

Boy-Toy-1

I made a layout of me with my hot little PT Cruiser! This is just a little taste of what You’ll be seeing from me this month!!! My layout is about my ride not being a Boy’s Toy… even though there are plenty of boys that want it!!!

Boy-Toy-2

I used Bombshell’s Angel stamp to give some va va voom to my vroom! I just had to color her to match me! How cute do we look in polka dots??? Here’s a close up.

Boy-Toy-4

I did her up with a mix of colored pencils and markers. I think she’s fabulous!!! And behind her, you can see I embossed some flames in Platinum…to coordinate with the flames on my car! Please click on any of the images to see them bigger.

Boy-Toy-5

I hand wrote my title…I wanted to make it just slightly girly, but with a bit of an edge…hence the super straight and slightly curly letters. And, I had some bubble wrap laying around, so I inked it up, and stamped away!

Boy-Toy-3

My journaling spot is also a stamp, and I embossed that in Platinum as well, then cut it out. It says:

“This is my little Hot Rod. I just love my 2001 PT Cruiser. And I love to see people’s jaws drop when they realize it’s not a boy’s toy, but a chicks smokin’ ride!”

And this is so true. I have done a good amount of work to the car (myself, thank you very much) and folks are often impressed by this. So now before I send you off, I want you to promise me you’ll come back soon! I have lots of fun Bombshell stuff up my sleeve, in addition to all of the other projects I’ve got going on. Now hop along to my wonderful friend, Danielle and have an inspiring day!!!

Too cool! I love the photo. I love the polka dots on the girls outfit. I love the layout. All in all, this is totally you and you hit it out of the park!

Love this!

I've been wanting to use my stamps more for scrapbooking and this is inspired.

Love your new ride - very cool!
Kathi said…
Fantastically great layout!

You know I love those photos. You know that I love your Cruiser. However, I LOVE this layout. So many great details from the wonderfully colored Bombshell Angel, to the embossed flames, to the emblem journaling block to that amazing hand-drawn title.

Lastly, I think the boys don't want the car. They want you.

P.S. Did you detail your car? If so, I'm gonna drive mine out so you can do it up.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
