Koi and Fishy

This card uses Bombshell Stamp's  Koi Tattoo stamp set.   This set goes perfectly with this month's featured stamp set - Lotus Garden.




The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic alcohol markers.  The card features papers from Basic Grey's Konnichiwa collection.  Those designer printed papers go perfectly with both of the above linked Bombshell Stamps stamp sets.





Some of the tools used to create this card are Creative Memories Custom Cutting System - Ovals, and a Cuttlebug Embossing folder from the Plum Blossom set. The triangle punch is from Stampin' Up.  Accents include some pearls and ribbon.  


The inside of the card is simple with a border punched using a punch from Fiskars and a bit of ribbon.

Bombshell Blog Hop

You should have arrived here from Alaine's blog where I'm sure you saw some wonderful creation inspired by Washi tape.   Sad to say my work is still under construction and delayed due to a headache.  I worked way too many spreadsheets at work today.

But please be patient and come back for a visit to see my card.   In the mean time, please hop on to Kelli's blog.

Dynamic Motorcycle News (DD94)


I love the Dynamic Duos challenges.   This week's color challenge is to use Basic Black and More Mustard.   Here's my card.






The image is from Bombshell Stamp's Harley Bikes set.  It's stamped using Memento Tuesedo Black ink and colored using Copic markers.   I used printed papers from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found collection.   Stampin' Up cardstock.  The embossing folder is by Lifetime Crafts (Quickutz).  The greeting is from Stampin' Up's Pennant Parade stamp set and punched using a Creative Memories Circle punch and layered using a Stampin' Up 7/8" Scalloped Circle punch.  For the distressing, I used some Tim Holz/Ranger Distress Ink. 



And the inside of the card.  I added a punched border (Stampin' Up/EK Success punch).

Bombshell Sketch - Live to Ride

I used this month's Bombshell Sketch to create this card.   It's a great card sketch. Join the challenge on the Bombshell blog.  I chose to use the Live to Ride set from Bombshell Stamps.




Here's the sketch.


The image is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah white cardstock and colored using Copic markers.   The printed papers are by My Mind's Eye. The brads are by Stampin' Up and so is the black cardstock.   As a finishing touch, I aded some liquid acrylic to the two banners on the stamped image and covered the orange barnwood image in liquid acrylic as well.  

 

The inside of the card is a white cardstock base trimmed out with some scraps of designer printed paper.
