Happy Halloween with a Bombshell Blog Hop

Welcome to the Bombshell Stamps blog hop! If youre just starting here, you can complete the blog from here, but I may suggest you start from the very beginning! Starting at the Bombshell Stamps Blog!

I made this card for my Secret Sis. I saw a card to CASE in a old Papercrafts Magazine. I wish I had more shades of paper to make it more gradient, but this will do! I made my own fence, and if you were to look at it up close you can see the squiggles I have drawn on it to give it the wood grain look. The cute little "Hell Cat" is from the "Classic Tattoo" set :) ALSO! in the moon, you can see I used a sakura glitter pen!! yep.. GLITTER! How did I manage to get that on a card ;)

Please continue to hop along, comment for a chance to win some goodies from Bombshell Stamps! Your next stop is to the lovely Glittery Katie's blog for more excitement!

Have a great Halloween!!! BE SAFE!

Happy Birthday Drew

Happy Birthday to my friend Drew! I always make him cards using Bombshell Stamps! This was the card I made for him for this years birthday.

I used the Cherry Bomb, and Tattoo Font sets from Bombshell Stamps, and colored her in his store's color theme of the Orange and Black.

This is the first time I have ever used the Cherry Bomb set since owning it! Nice little challenge for myself! :)

Birthday card for tayla!

I have been talking it up on Facebook chat with fellow Bombshell Girl, Rachael about how I need to challenge myself to go outside my comfort zone and try new things. Things you already know about me is that I despise glitter! Now I am challenging myself to use a set that I have owned that NEVER use. I think its been clearly a solid 8-12 months since I have pulled out either this paper, or the Butterfly Queen set. So why not use them together! Plus it is a nice break from all those Christmas cards I have been making. :)
I made this card for my friend Tayla for her upcoming birthday! She has been getting a lot of tattoos recently that are of the Sailor Jerry Style, and I knew she would love the Butterfly Queen and the Tattoo Font stamps that I used on this card.

I like this card so much I am half tempted NOT to share it with her, and change my name so I could keep it for myself.

Do you have a set or stamp that you rarely pick up? I challenge you lovely Bombshells to pick up that abandoned stamp and get some Ink-spiration!!! :)

Happy Holidays!!

Did you know... there is like 12 weeks until CHRISTMAS?!
Yeah, thanks to my friend who posted on FB about it... I figured I would be able to share some info with you. I know at work we have been selling a lot of the gift sets (ahem--- 50%!!!) of the signatures. Normally $25.00 are now $12.50! and you get a Fragrance mist, lotion and shower gel. Rad right?


I am making a bunch of cards for OWH. I have a goal of 500, and as of 3 days ago!!! I AM SHY BY 50!!! No worries, I have time! But I need to get them out soon!! My shipper will be proud, as they are all labeled, stamped and tucked accordingly!!

Happy World Card Making Day!!!

This day may be my favorite holiday ever!!!! (Besides Halloween!!)
Thank you for hopping with us today!! Operation Write Home has become such a wonderful outlet for me. I get to share my talents with people and they can use it to make their friends and family know that they are thinking of them while they are away on their duties.

Because of OWH I have met so many amazing people, and created such amazing friendships that I will love forever. Enough of the sappy stuff.
