Bombshell Blog Hop: Homage to Betty Page

Happy Birthday Betty Page!
Welcome to the Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop where we are paying homage to Betty Page, the Queen of the Pin Ups.  Be sure to make a pit stop at everyone’s blog along the hop. If you ever get lost, head HOME and find your way. If you are following the hop, you should have come from the super glittery KATIE  if not, feel free to start from the beginning, or just continue as you are. Make sure to visit everyone as we all have something fun to share! If you get lost, here is the complete list of Hoppers:

I was inspired by a pair of Betty Page themed shoes that were animal print. (SEEN HERE). Arent those Great!? I love them. I have a pair of Candies heels that are very similar to them! If found them on the link Alison provided for inspiration. Instead of me looking at Betty pictures, I saw a link for SHOPPING. Me... interested in shopping... How rare!! Now onto business and my card! Enjoy!

My "Betty" inspired project was made with two sets, Girls Ruin, and Love and Hate. The little birds really did the trick for me, and of course the Bombshell in the beautiful heel. She was inked in Versa fine, colored with Prismacolor, and Stampin Up Marker. Paper Pieced with Recollections- Animal Kingdom. Other papers also come from other Recollections paper. Paper has been Distressed with Versafine and a sponge paint brush.

Thanks for stopping by, next stop is fellow new DT member Torrey @ http://left-field-studio.blogspot.com/. She is pretty rad, not to mention she made all the cool badges for all of us Bombshell Girls, and Pin Ups! Now go and leave her some love! I know you are bound to be impressed.

Bracelet for Haley

If you follow me on Facebook, you have probably seen this bracelet. Some people thought this was a wooden bowl {due to it being on its side.}

I made this bracelet for one of my best friends, Haley. She has been asking... FOREVER for one and I kept neglecting to make one for her.

She came by my house on Monday and I showed her my stamp sets that she could chose from for me to put on a wooden bracelet for her. She chose Mermaid Treasure... But I also added Hawaiian Girl to this bracelet just because of the little turtle :)

I used Stazon, White tissue paper, Bic Mark its, Distress Inks, and Sparkle Mod Podge on this bracelet. I hope she likes it! She seemed to when I gave it to her on Tuesday!!! :) And imagine that! This qualifies for another BSS DT ONLY CHALLENGE!! :) Look at me... I am on a roll!!

Bombshell Stamps April Sketch

This was my submission for the Bombshell Stamps April Sketch. Feel free to join in the fun. Use the sketch, and link up with us on the blog post, or in the forum, you can find yourself at a chance of winning some rubber stamps from Bombshell Stamps.

It was such a fun sketch, I hope to do more of this sketch.I shouldnt forget to mention... this card also qualifies for the Bombshell Stamps DT ONLY challenge because I used stamps from TWO different stamp sets. I used Bombshell Angel, and Rose's Portrait. How fun right? The more submissions I turn in the better the chances myself to win some Bombshell goodies so wish me luck since my Bombshell Wish list is like a million pages long! :)

I am sending this card to Diem's aunt for her birthday which is this week. She is a big supporter of my craftiness. I figure it would be perfect for her!

This card was made with the rose and sentiment from Rose's Portrait, and the Lil Angel from Bombshell Angel. Everything was inked in Versafine, and colored in Prismacolor and Bic Mark-its. And the big shocker... I USED STICKLES!!! I know I am more shocked than you are I think. ;)

doodles for Haley

Rumor is the proper term for things like this called a Zentangle. I prefer to just call it a doodle. I love the feel of a brand new  sharpie and that is what is used to draw this for one of my best friends, Haley. She has been asking me for a while to draw her one so I finally did it. Boy did it start a monster. I ended up drawing two smaller versions for two other people. This is a 12x12 doodle. Now I need to go pick up a scrapbook frame for her :)
