September Hump Day Hop: Speed Demons- Masters of Transportation

Greetings! It's time for the September 2013 Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month, the theme I chose was Speed Demons- Masters of Transportation. Bombshell Stamps has so many images to choose from for this theme. Motorcycles, hot rods, even a ship! So I wanted the participants to use any of these Speed Demons as the focus of their projects. Here's what I created.

I made a tag using Speed Shop and Pin-Stripes. I colored my hot rod with colored pencils. The tag I painted with acrylic paint. I kept the finish uneven on purpose. The big pin stripe was stamped with acrylic paint as well.

I used a silver pencil for the chrome on the car, so I decided to go with the silver idea further and heat emboss my phrases and the crown in a bright silver. I love the added shine. I also added a bit of highlighting with a white gel pen.

There you have it! So, do you have any of the Bombshell Stamps speed demons? Well, the folks below do, and they want to show off their projects! So please be sure to visit every stop on the list. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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…
