of those celebrations at Bombshell Stamps!!

Win Big with October's Sketch Challenge!

Hi all,
It's Kathi, the Bombshell Stamps' Design Team Sketch Maker! :D

Make a card with this sketch and post it by October 31st.


...and you can win these prizes.

If you use the sketch with Bombshell Stamps and share your project at Bombshell's Forum in the Sketch Challenge area, you'll have a chance to win these two sets:


If you use the sketch with any stamps (by any company) and post it at Rubber Stamp Chat, you'll have a chance to win:


Here's my take on the sketch!


Rose's Portrait was stamped on some Prism cardstock that I found in my stash. I colored the image with Copic markers, which blended very nicely on that cardstock, which is no longer available. *sad face* Her earring was colored with Copics, accented with a glitter Spica pen, then overlaid with a Sakura Glaze pen to add a bit of dimension. The sentiment is from the wonderful new Banner Sayings set, which arrived today, just in time to be used for this card! I didn't even mount the rubber yet! I just inked it, put the patterned paper over the unmounted sheet, shaded the sentiment banner, and cut it out!

The patterned paper is seriously old paper from Keeping Memories Alive, which was bought in quantity and hoarded!!! It survived several patterned paper purges and I'm so glad!!!



Here's what the Bombshell Girls did with Kathi's sketch- you ROCKED it out girls!!!

I hope you use the sketch and take advantage of this fabulous chance to win BIG!!!

Katie, one of our long term Design Team members, will be our Bombshell Blog Captain! Congrats Katie!

I'd like to remind you that there's still time to sign up for this month's blog hop, do the sketch challenge, or make a project using Ms. October's theme. Visit The Casino on Bombshell's forum for the scoop!

To kick off the new blog, we're going to have a mini-challenge! From now until November 2nd, your challenge is to create a project using your Bombshell stamps celebrating Halloween and/or the Day of the Dead. There will be a prize involved!

The only rules are:
• You can NOT re-use a project created for October's other Bombshell challenges, though you can use the sketch or make a pocket project to create a project specifically for the Bombshell Blog Challenge! Remember: your project must be brand new!

• You must use at least one Bombshell Stamp.

• You can enter as many projects as you'd like.

• Have fun!

• In order to participate in blog challenges, you must become a "Follower".

There are so many wonderful Bombshell sets that are perfect for this challenge, so clear your craft table, get out your Bombshell stamps, get your supplies set up, and get crafty!
