Sunscreen Protection Day: Bombshell Wacky Holidays

Greetings! At Bombshell Stamps, we like to enjoy the sillier side of things from time to time. Which is why we started celebrating wacky holidays. I get all of my info from Holiday Insights. And boy, do they have a lot of information when it come to out of the ordinary celebrations. This month, e are celebrating Sunscreen Protection Day. Because really, those bombshells need to keep their skin looking beautiful! Here's what I learned about the day.

Sunscreen Protection Day is always celebrated on May 27th, but since we have Muse Monday tomorrow, we decided to get the festivities underway a day early. The day is said to bring awareness about how important it is to protect you and your loved one's skin from the harmful rays of the sun. This is even important on cloudy days. So always use SPF 15 or more, people!


I used several Bombshell Stamps sets for this card. I used Hula Girl, and new to me, Hawaiian Girl and Tiki Party. Please take note of the fact that my girls are nice an fair. They are wearing like SPF 75!

Everything was colored with alcohol inks. Mostly Spectrum Noirs with a few Copics thrown in.

I've got to say, it's a lot of fun piecing together little scenes with my Bombshells. Have you ever given it a try?  I hope you will be wearing your sunscreen today, and everyday! Would you like to see more projects that celebrate this wacky holiday? Then please go visit the Bombshell Blog to see what some of the other DT members have created. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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!
