Bombshell Hump Day Hop

Crazy month here...but, I did get a chance to have some fun with my Bombshell Stamps this month.
Here are a couple of cards that I made....

1st - for a sketch challenge on Paper Craft Planet...

Someone commented on Paper Craft Planet that maybe instead of Erin go Braugh it should be Erin go Braughless.  I guess with that outfit.....

Then for the sketch challenge on the Bombshell Page. 
I made a card for Operation Write Home.  It's a "Any Hero" card...what's that you ask. 
Well, its for a soldier that maybe had a bad week or not much mail that could use an extra boost.
 I added a little handwritten note and sent it to Operation Write Home to distribute.


Then this was just a Christmas Card that I sent out.  I later added Santa Baby to the front, but forgot to take a picture when I was done....silly me!  I used a lot of shimmery watercolors made by Yasutomo. 
I especially liked the way they worked for her nylons.  It is probably hard to see with the scanner though.
  I used a white glaze pen for the fur on her hat and the teddy bear.



Now she probably got her camera....hehehe

I will try and add some more later today, so stop by again or Friday!

I forgot to add this earlier!  (sorry)
Here are the other blog participants!!!

Bombshell's Ms. December Challenge Blog Hop

Is Santa going to have a "Naughty or Nice" next to your name.
Mine will probably be a little of both !

Our Challenge was to create a project showing which side of the list we belonged on.
The Naughty List or the Nice List, and to make those bombshell stamps give Ole St Nick a reason to smile.
Well, I guess my "naughty" side won!  (I know shocker!)

Here she is 
(please remember, my dog ate my camera...it hasn't been replace so this is an awful scanner version!)



OK....Here's the list of other hoppers (probably more naughty than nice)

The new phone books are here...the new phone books are here....

Anyone remember that from "The Jerk" ? 
Well it was like that for me today! 
I got my copy of the Altered Book 10 Year Anniversary Book! 
There are over 180 of us that submitted pages for this and it is beautiful! 
So many fantastic artists.  Truly inspiring.

Operation Write Home Veteran's Day BlogHop

If you arrived here without going to the start, please make sure to go back to
OPERATION WRITE HOME

What an incredible organization!  I love being a part of this group.
With the holidays here, I hope it reminds everyone to be thankful for the job
that these men and women do, and the sacrifices that they make.
Also keep in mind that these people have friends and family at home that
have birthdays, anniversaries, etc... just like the rest of us.
These brave men and women are not stationed near a Hallmark!
The opportunity to send home a birthday card to a child they love, just isn't there!
So if you make cards....send them some  !!
If you don't....consider sending a donation to help with shipping the cards to these men and women.
They can send the cards home for free to their loved ones,
but it costs money to get the cards to them!

******JUST ADDED*****
PLEASE LEAVE COMMENTS AND I WILL BE SENDING OUT
BLOG CANDY TO A RANDOM COMMENTER !!!

Thank you!!

Here are some of the cards I have made to send over....









Now it's time for the next stop in the BLOGHOP !

Hello to all the Single Ladies!! - Bombshell Hump Day Hop Style !

Welcome to the Bombshell Hump Day Hop!
The Bombshell Design Team Members are bringing you a fabulous hop each and every Wednesday!
View rockin' projects at each stop along the way and leave comments to win a fab prize.  
This week's challenge is a great one!! 
It is so easy to add embellishments and layers to jazz up our crafts!
But strip it down.....no puns intended, and you have to Work it girls!

Here is what we had....
"Single Ladies!" Nope, not Beyonce style...I mean layers.
You've got it, this week's challenge is to make a card using only the card base; one single layer. Use stencils, airbrush, drawings and the like; add anything else that tickles your fancy, except more paper. Why should layers have all the fun? I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

After you look at mine, stop by the other blogs this week and look at the great stuff they came up with!

ALSO...Take a look at some of their other stuff...not just this week's hop. 
You will see some really inspiring work, I know I always do!

Batter Up !

Well, we took our daughters to their first ballgame last month on 9/11 and I wanted to put together a little scrapbook of the pictures I took.
In addition to the regular game they had special events to commemorate 9/11 and then fireworks. I found these AWESOME little journals that I wanted to use....then thought....I can Bombshell this! So.....




Hope you like her!

World Card Day

To celebrate "World Card Day" ......
I thought it would be fun to do something to celebrate another part of the world.  At Bombshell Stamps we wanted to start our holidays off.
How to combine?
Well I need to get some cards made for Operation Write Home
especially because of the upcoming holidays. 
So, this card serves many purposes. 
How about a Spanish card with holiday colors
that a soldiers can use to send a note home to someone they love......
PERFECT!

This may be Bombshell's Lucky Bride, but I think she looks like a beautiful Spanish Dancer!

My answer to Terra's Challenge!!

First if you haven't checked out Terra's blog....do it now!!  On top of the usual coolness...she and Kelli are having a blog candy giveaway!

This is my answer to her Twisted Tuesday challenge.
This week she said to use bottle caps. 
So I made these earrings with my Bombshell Stamps Kustom Kulture set.
There are numerous layers of UTEE in the bottle cap and on the flames,
so it was hard to photograph.

I am trying to make some fun jewelry for an upcoming car show and
Rock-a-billy concert.
It is of course a PBR cap.

Now get over to Terra's Blog
and then to Kelli's Blog

Thanks Martha !

for the great lantern idea.  Yes, Martha Stewart !
I was given this as a gift and I have really enjoyed reading the magazine.
This month she made the coolest lanterns for Halloween. 


I am making some mini ones for our dining room, but thought they could be used some othe ways also, so here's my take.


I used Bombshell Stamps Butterfly Queen Stamp.  I used an assortement of markers to color on the vellum panels.  I attached gold grommets at the top and used black quilting thread for the hanger.

Inspiration can come from anywhere......even Junk Mail !!

You know that question...where do you get your inspiration?
I always answer "from everything around me" and it's true.

Well a couple of weeks ago we got a piece of mail and I knew it meant a cool new Bombshell card.

Here is the mail


And here is my card


It is going to make the perfect b-day card for a friend of mine. 
The stamp is of course from Bombshell Stamps. 
The feathers are colored with marker to match the ad.  Her fishnets are drawn on.  She also has a cigar in her hand to match the Vegas Showgirl above.
It's hard to see in the small picture, but she even has the jewels on the side of her costume to match.  Check back for more Showgirls in the future, this was too fun!

Welcome to the 3rd Bombshell Hump Day Hop

Coming to you each and every Wednesday!
Here's how it works:
Follow the links below for the Hump Day Hop.
Leave comments at each stop and tell them what you think about their project! The more comments you make, the more entries you will have to win a great prize from Bombshell Stamps at the end of the month!

This week….put on your sunglasses….we are bringing out the BLING!
"Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend"
I decided that even though it was "Bling Week",
I wanted it to be appropriate even for a manly man.
So, I went for some “blue bling” on my card this week.

Her skirt is colored with Glitter Gems pen (Blue Zircon)
and the waist band is mini blue rhinestones.
There are blue star sequins on her top and larger ones on the bottom of the card.
I used a Martha Stewart lacy doily edge punch on the light blue cardstock.
So now.....add your comment and then hop on over to the other Bombshell DT Member blogs, and don't forget to join us again next week!

Oh yes....Feeling Exotic!!

Well, I was last week, so I made the Butterfly Queen into a belly-dancer.


I used Basic Grey Marrakesh (well a piece left over from another project) and some olive green cardstock. All the paper is edged with Deco Color liquid gold marker.

The train/veil is gold vellum. I stamped and cut it out and added it to the back.
The gold dots down the side are the same Gold Vellum punched with my Crop-a-dile. I also used the Deco Color gold to do all th jewelry and accents.

I would love to see what exotic women you can come up with

Altered Book Swap

Posted by kasmello at 05:01 PM on July 04, 2009 delete
Well, here it is! My page for the altered book swap.



It's for the 10th anniversary of the yahoo group. Its finished size (not including binding area) is 3 x 6. The base page is from a book of Russian poetry and short stories. It is a Russian "Romeo & Juliet" style story. The underlined words in Russian are "Love". Let me know what you think.

Good Morning!

Looks like everything is just about moved over now.  So here begins the new posts.  Check back later this for some new Bombshell Stamps "stuff"

and a cute card made with MyGraphico digital stamps!

This week we each have our own -thang- goin on!!

.

.

For this first week, I wanted to send out a little ?WooHoo?

 to the other DT members.

With this little Congratulations on Your Accomplishment card !!

Miss Bombshell is wearing a lovely full length evening gown made from DCWV metallic cardstock.

Her shoes are black with a hint of silver glamour.

She sends big hugs and kisses to everyone!

The key to dressing these bombshells are the arms.

To make it easier it helps if she has a sleeve,

spaghetti strap or in this case, a sash.

You can use the arms from the final stamp or a second stamp.

Directions:

Start with a stamped image.

I would also color her skin first. It is easier to work with a larger piece.

  

Remove the arm at different spots depending

on how she will be dressed.

You may only need to replace the hands, like in this example.

.

Its easiest to design the clothes with tracing paper or vellum. You could even use a transparency so that it would be easier to reuse. This part is up to you, what do you want her to look like??

Also, keep those mis-stamped images for

*body parts*  lets not waste girls!!

So now.....add your comment and then hop on over to the other Bombshell DT Member blogs,

and don't forget to join us again next week!

Cards for a Cause 9-15-09

Please visit the link below to hear about a special need for a special girl.

READ HERE

Here is mine.....  I just made this and think it would be very fitting for a teenage girl.

I Feel Pretty...Oh so Pretty.... 9-12-09

Ok, I felt like being in a pretty mood today. 

So I made a pretty card. 

Bombshell Stamps have the coolest stamps....

but they can also be used to make your world pretty too! 

This project uses the Butterfly Queen stamp set. 

 It is also all scraps (doin' the Green thing)

The butterflies and flowers were stamped on vellum.

It is hard to see in the picture, but it has a cool muted look in person.

Try it sometime.  Just remember to use an ink that won't bleed or smear.

Do a test first.  I set mine with a heat gun before coloring just to be safe,

and I like using the heat gun!

Blog Hop Update 9-10-09

I hope everyone got to all the blogs on our bloghop yesterday!! 

There were a few late posts, so if you missed one try again. 

Next week, keep an eye out for a fun tutorial when we play

dress-up!!  (just a little hint.....)

Thanks for the wonderful comments. 

I met a lot of new people and will be visiting all of your websites

over the next day or two leaving you some love also!!

This week all of our projects are based on Ms. September's Challenge.

Ms September is Sarah K. Her challenge is to make a project inspired by a movie.

Her blog is  HERE

.

Here's what I came up with:

.

My movie inspiration was the Tales of Rat Fink. A cool movie about Ed "Big Daddy" Roth.

The colors used in a lot of his art were red, green and purple.

There were flaming eyeballs and flames everywhere.

 

.

I am purchasing a copy of it for my dad's birthday, and thought this card would work perfectly!

Now that you've seen my take on the challenge, add your comment and then hop on over to the other Bombshell DT Member blogs, and don't forget to join us again next week!
