Happy Bombshell New Year

Hope you have some fabulous celebrations planned to bring in the new year.    This Bombshell gal sure does.   She's ready to party Vegas Showgirl style.   The image is from Bombshell Stamps Butterfly Queen.  The card is a mash up of two challenges Retro Sketches (rs95) and ColourQ (cQc221) challenges.

The Bombshell image is stamped using Memento Ink in in Rich Cocoa and colored with Copic Markers and accented with a Sakura clear Stardust Gel pen.

Here's an angled view to see some of the dimension.   The Bombshell and the main layer of the cards is pop dotted up using SU dimensionals.

And lastly, the inside of the card.   It's simple and mimics the front of the card.

Merry Muscle Car Wishes

This card is also posted on Bombshell Stamps' Muse Monday post today.  I got inspiration from two challenges: Retro Sketch 94 and Dynamic Duos 83. The card features Bombshell Stamps' Speed Shop Stamp set.  The car is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. 

I wrapped pieces of ribbon onto a scrap of cardstock for the blue chevron accent.   The ribbon is from Stampin' Up in Marina Mist.  The background is embossed using Stampin' Up's Arglye embossing folder

 Printed papers are by Stampin' Up and SEI.   The cardstock is Stampin' Up Crumb Cake.  The greeting is from SU's retired Lots of Thoughts set.

And the inside of the card. 

  Here's the sketch and color challenge inspiration.

Holiday Party Bombshell

I haven't been posting for a few weeks as I went out for carpal tunnel surgery.  I'm still heeling, but still functioning with my right hand while coddling my left hand.   So I made a clean and simple card to keep things easier.   I really like CAS cards and often aspire to make CAS cards, but don't always achieve that aspiration.  Hopefully I did this time.    So here she is.... my Holiday Bombshell.

This Bombshell Angel is stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento ink and colored with Copics.   The dress is cut using my e-cutter with MTC software using the Bombshell Clothing digital die cut file. 

The Bombshell's Santa hat is from the Bombshell Stamps Holiday Accessory set.  It's stamped, the red is colored with Copics and the fuzzy white stuff is this great medium called Liquid Applique that puffs up when heated with a heat gun. 

The designer printed papers are from My Mind's Eye and Recollections.   The silver layer is Canson and the white cardstock is Neenah with a Hammermill white cardstock card base.   Some dimensional foam tape is used to pop up this gorgeous gal from the card base.   Lastly, the embossing is created using an embossing folder by Darice.

Merry Scenic Winter Wishes

This card is for this week's Color Throwdown (CTD270) and Paper Players (PP174) challenges.  I actually stamped and colored the main image some time ago.   Since I'm recovering from carpal tunnel surgery, it prompted me to dig through my stash of predone elements and work with those.  This image was a perfect fit for both challenges.   

Here are a couple of angled shots.

and the inside of the card.

Stamps: winter scene (Hero Arts); background (Impression Obsession)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento); embossing ink (Versamark)
Coloring: markers (Copic); Gumball Green Marker (Stampin' Up)
Cardstock: Crumb Cake,  Gumball Green (Stampin' Up); silver (Core'dinations); silver (Canson); white (Neenah)
Ribbon: Gumball Green stitched, silver (Stampin' Up)
Tools: oval and scallopped oval punches (Stampin' Up)
Other: silver embossing powder
