Holiday Hoopla: September Bomsbshell Hump Day Hop

It's the last Wednesday of the month of September (YIPPIE!!!), so that means it's time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop. Here's the topic I chose for this month.
Holiday Hoopla
Many of our major holidays are just around the corner. I think we all know what my favorite holiday is (Halloweenie! )...but what's yours? My challenge to you is to make a Bombshell project for your favorite holiday. Bonus points if you make a decoration!!! Use any holiday you want and create something that's going to make us want to celebrate!!!
Ooh, I have really been looking forward to seeing what everyone makes for this hop! But first, let's take a look at mine, shall we?

I'm pretty stoked about this project! I'm probably going to hear a collective gasp from everyone reading this...but I need a break from cards! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE making them...but I adore doing other things! Altering stuff. Using weird supplies (ie masking tape!). Truth be told, I'm faster at making cards than other things (cause I get so damn anal about everything)...but I actually had some time to do what I really wanted. And it was fabulous! My mom had the kidlings, and Gene and I enjoyed some peaceful time together while the sun shone brightly in the living room where I created this little bottle. It was a glorious time!


This lovely Bride of Frankenstein was created by using Bombshell Angel, along with one of the fang-tastic new digi costumes that were just released. I colored her with my watercolor markers. She is attached to a bottle that came from a Wendy's Kid's Meal! I took the label off, and covered the bottom half with masking tape. Then I used a few colors of Distress Ink on it to dull it down.


After that, I stamped some assorted screw heads all over the tape using Staz-On and Smeared Ink stamps (Urban Decay collection). Then I grabbed some twill tape, and stamped "nuts bolts" on it and adhered that to the bottle.


Added some twine, tied on some screws, and proceeded to fill my little bottle. And I think it's rad! This will look perfect with my Halloween decorations, as I use a ton of white. Then, I can keep it out after Halloween since it serves a function. And truth be told, I keep a lot of decorations out all year long! :)

Now it's time for you to visit the rest of the folks on the hop! Here is the complete list.

I know you will enjoy the rest of this hop. I hope it makes you want to create something fabulous with your Bombshell Stamps! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Great project. Love that you were able to recycle the bottle into something so wonderful.

I get being tired of cards. When I feel that way I turn to my art journal.

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…
