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!!!

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.

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
