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!
Nicole Maki said…
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.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
