Wedding Themed Bombshell Blog Hop!

Hello! It’s been a long time since we’ve had a Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop…and I’ve really been itching for one. You should be coming from my friend Cheryl's blog. If not, you can start back at the Bombshell Blog…but I’ll have the full hop list at the end of my post. This hop was thought up by Ms. April, Rachael. We are to do something wedding themed…and thinking laterally is ok too (i.e.: bachelor party). I knew just what I wanted to do. Did you see my post from last Friday? It was for the latest Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, and I made a scrapbook page from my medieval wedding. So…I just had to make another one for this challenge! And perhaps eventually I will get my album done! ;)


Now tell me…can you spot the Bombshell Stamps?


Do you see them??? I used a set from the Pin Stripes collection and the crown that’s from the Butterfly Queen set. Here’s a close up.



My wedding dress (handmade by my Mom!), had tri-colored metallic cords on it. Just beautiful. So, I decided to carry that theme into my layout. I mixed metals like crazy! The pin stripes are embossed with silver. The crowns are inked with a color called Lightening Black (Tsukineko), which is black with gold flecks, the veining in the leaves are gold and copper, the strip on the bottom has gold foil and the damask paper is completely foiled. Plus I used Platinum Liquid Pearls. Me likey the shiny!



This is one of my favorite photos from the wedding (and we have a LOT of pictures!). Having the trumpeters behind us, with the beautiful door of the mansion we got married in…us looking so overjoyed…it’s just a great photo!




You can see the gleam coming off of the papers here. You can click on any of my pictures to see it bigger.


This was such a fun page to make. I love using teeny Bombshell elements like this. Unexpected. I actually think I want to hang it rather then put it in an album! We’ll see.


Now get on with your hopping! :) The next stop is the ridiculously talented Katie. I am quite sure that you will be wowed by her awesomeness! Enjoy the hop and have an inspiring day!!!

So pretty. What a great LO and I like how you used the Bombshell Stamps.

I have a stack of 12x12 frames from Michaels and I hang up all my LOs if they are really significant to our family (like a special wedding photo, babies birth etc.)

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!
