December Sketch Card & A Giveaway!!!

I inadvertently ended up with a duplicate Butterfly Queen set and got authorization to give it away as blog candy. I decided to make a Christmas card using this set so you could see the focal image in action. I took my December Bombshell sketch and flipped it on its side.

Here's the card:

I stamped the Butterfly Queen and added the Santa Hat from the Holiday Accessory set. I had just heard both Blue, Blue Christmas and Santa Baby on the radio, so I decided to color her blue. I pulled out some Figgy Pudding Basic Grey paper (6x6 pad) and 12x12, matched the paper with Copic markers, and had at it. I added a bit of white flock to her hat on the band and pom-pom. Then I realized that I hadn't stamped her straight, so I cut her out and mounted her on a Nestability diecut that was adorned with Stickles.

White shimmery cardstock was used for the large Sizzlet snowflakes and the smaller punched ones.

If you want to win the Butterfly Queen set, you need to make a card using the sketch and share it on BOTH Bombshell's forum and on the Bombshell Blog (see below). You have until January 6th PST to finish your card and get it posted.

You can see the sketch on my blog below or here on Bombshell's forum.

Please note that this giveaway is separate from the regular monthly prize!!!

Thanks for visiting!!!

Taking the Monthly Challenge Up a Notch.....

This month's challenge was
Don't stamp on paper. Don't do it! Find other things to stamp on.....

So I did.  I also got the chance to highlight a product sold on the Bombshell Stamps site, that
everyone always asks about.  So here you go.

Black Temporary Tattoo Body Ink

My family is very odd, to say the least.  So for our Christmas Eve morning we gave each
other the gift of tattoos.  First I will start by sending you some

You can create the look of a real tattoo with rubber stamps, and our temporary tattoo body inkpad!  The ink is safe and non-toxic for kids, specially formulated and made for applying on skin.  It is easy to use and comes out very clearly. 


Of course we took it up a step and added some sharpie which does NOT clean off easily.  So don't add that if it will be a problem.

My daughter colored the heart on my arm....thanks Bella!

Here are some more examples

The sugar skull bracelet is real, but I wanted to see what it would look like to start adding to it.

The my daughter couldn't be happy with JUST an anchor....so she added a little.

How fun would this be to do at a birthday party for kids?
So....now you know.

And, it was a lot of fun.  We added more as the day went on, we are COVERED!

Hi, I’m Mary G. I live in Maryland along the beautiful Chesapeake Bay with my husband. We have one grown son who is a budding politician. I also have 2 “grandkitties”, Georgiana and Maggie. I work as an elementary school secretary in our local school, but before that, I spent 14 years working as a preschool special ed teaching assistant.

2. How long have you been stamping and/or crafting?
I’ve been stamping since about 2000, but I grew up with a crafty mom, so I did all sorts of other crafts before that including counted cross-stitch, crocheting, and needlepoint.

3. What are your favorite Bombshell sets and why?
Oh, dear…that’s a toughie. I think my all-time favorite set is Bombshell Angel. I fell in love with the pin-up because she reminds me so much of those painted ladies on the noses of World War II airplanes. I’m fascinated by nose art! I also love the girl from Ahoy, Sailor and now the new Western Gal image.

4. What kind of projects do you like to do?
I’m mostly a card maker however I do dabble in scrapbooking on occasion. I love making stamped recipe pages.

5. What are your favorite coloring mediums?
I LOVE to color my images and I absolutely adore Copic Markers!!!! I also love how Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol look, but I’m still learning with those! I haven’t quite “got it”, yet.

6. Describe your crafting "style".
I’m a simple stamper. I do lean more toward “cutesy”.

7. Describe your crafting process. Do you start with a stamp set? A sketch? A technique you want to use?
Hmm- I don’t really know…I guess it all depends on my mood.

8. Do you have any other hobbies?
I LOVE to ride my motorcycle. I also enjoy going to craft shows, wandering through antique stores and yard sales, and I love anything old. I’m researching my family history and think it’s fun to learn about my ancestors. I also enjoy travelling and hope to travel to Great Britain someday. Cooking and baking are fun, too...but especially the eating part! Oh, and I LOVE me some Reese’s Cups!!

Facts about me:
• I was raised an “Air Force Brat”.
• I can recite all 50 states in alphabetical order.
• Laura Ingalls Wilder and Ulysses S. Grant are both my seventh cousins.

December Challenge: Not Just Paper!

Hi, I'm the Craftaholic, and Ms. December! 
This month's challenge is called, "Not Just Paper", and is lots of fun!

So this challenge means you don't stamp on paper. Don't do it! Find other things to stamp on!

What can you stamp on? Use your noggin, and you'll find something!
Here's my idea-I stamped on some white clay! 
Actually, it's a sort of paper clay that self hardens, AND can be baked in the oven, which is what I did. 
Then, it was stamped and painted with my own homemade version of twinkling H2Os.

But the twinkling H2Os are EASY to make! There's a tutorial on youtube, but what I did was get a couple of empty lip gloss containers and squirt some watercolor paint in there, with some pearl ex powder, or perfect pearls then i just mixed a TINY little bit of mod podge, because i've got a huge tub of that stuff. 
that's it! Mix it with a chop stick.
Then, just use it like you do any watercolor paint. It's SO cool, and easy to make.

You like it? 
I hope you do! Now, I have to get off the computer, as my little one is battling me for it!

Meet Ms. December, Diana Gonzalez!

I'm skipping around a bit since I'm waiting for some responses, so here's Ms. December, Diana Gonzalez!!!

Brief info about yourself, including your name, where you live, your family (if you want), etc.
My name is Diana, and I'm the Craftaholic! I reside in Brooklyn, New York, with my husband-the "fine artist" and musician, and my daughter, the trouble maker three year old.

2. How long have you been stamping and/or crafting?
I've been stamping for about four years, and crafting most of my life.

3. What are your favorite Bombshell sets and why?
I love the Butterfly Dreams set. And the Calaveras. So cool. Very Versatile. I love when stamp sets are versatile.

4. What kind of projects do you like to do?
Oh, I love practical things. I love art, but I love function. I like to blend a bit of both. Form AND function. You know?

5. What are your favorite coloring mediums?

6. Describe your crafting "style".
I describe my style as "vintage city grunge" because I'm influenced a lot by my love of vintage goods, and living in NYC just inspires me fully.

My favorite artist is Jean Michel Basquiat. He actually influences me artistically a lot, but you can't tell much. I love that he created art on anything around him. Postcards. Dresses. Chairs. I love that.

7. Describe your crafting process. Do you start with a stamp set? A sketch? A technique you want to use?
I never start with a sketch. I start with an idea that I have in my head, something for a swap,something for a friend as a gift, or something I need. Usually, that helps me visualize what to create. That is followed by some new crafty goodness that I'll buy, something I'll find in my stash, or a new technique that I want to try. I never start with out being able to visualize the finished project and actually I never buy a stamp set without visualizing how I'll use it either. If I can't visualize, I don't buy it. Because why bother, right? If I still come up nil, then I sit at my desk and stare for a while and think. Then I move to my couch with my second or third cup of coffee, and stare at my craft books (for some reason, I don't open them). Then, I usually get an idea. If not, I'll go out with my little one-the city always helps give me ideas.

8. Do you have any other hobbies?
YES. Too many. I knit and crochet, bake, sew, do embroidery, jewelry making, soap making....that's mostly it. I think.

9. Free for all including little facts, etc. about you.
• Whenever I make art, my little one usually watches over me. Except knitting. That I do on the train.
• I like to recycle. I have so many rubber stamps, but for some reason, it's never enough.
• I love chocolate.
• I make art in silence or with my daughter playing her music. She's three. She's a firecracker.

Here's some inspiration from Diana's gallery.

"Meet the Design Team" -- Kas!

Hello again. Today the spotlight is on Kas, who has been on Bombshell's Design Team for quite some time. Kas is our Hump Day Blog Hop Captain and also writes articles for the blog.

Without further ado, here's her interview!!!
1. Brief info about yourself, including your name, where you live, your family (if you want), etc.
I currently live in South Carolina, but have lived in Ohio, Oregon, Georgia, California, Louisiana, and a short stay in Boston. I have three children (22, 15,11) and three fuzzy children, a Victorian Bulldog, a Boston Terrier, and an aging terrier mutt.

2. How long have you been stamping and/or crafting?
I have been crafting my whole life, I can't remember a time when I didn't.
As far as stamping, I didn't really do too much until I found Bombshell stamps. Other stamps were always too cutesy for me. Bombshells were my demise!

3. What are your favorite Bombshell sets and why?
I love all the sugar skulls because I am a HUGE Day of the Dead fan, but Rose's Portrait and the Retro Cowgirls follow closely.

4. What kind of projects do you like to do?
I like to do all sorts of projects. I scrap and make cards for Operation Write Home and Operation Quiet Comfort.

5. What are your favorite coloring mediums?
Well I didn't have Copics until Bombshell, (hmmm Seeing a pattern.) but those girls needed some better colored skin.

I do like using pencils a lot and have pulled out the shimmery watercolors and watercolor pencils on occasion.

6. Describe your crafting "style".
I guess my webname "art loves chaos" says it all. It is never the same. It depends on my mood, the pictures (if scrapping), the project, etc... Usually shabby/grungy 'cause that's just me.

7. Describe your crafting process. Do you start with a stamp set? A sketch? A technique you want to use?
I start with a project idea that sets the whole tone. I started using sketches here for the sketch challenges, and really like doing that now also (hey wait...that's another one attributed to Bombshell).

8. Do you have any other hobbies?
I love all sorts of crafts. I love listening to music and listen to everything from Psychobilly to Johnny Cash to Al Green to Pavorotti. YES! I already know I am a freak!

9. Free for all including little facts, etc. about you.
• I used to work in recording studios then as a video editor
• I love spicy ethnic foods
• I have one part of my family tree traced back to the 1400s but so far no one exciting. The other side I can only go back 2 generations, so I am thinking someone is hiding something juicy.I am just waiting to find out :lol:
• OH, and I don't watch TV and I mean don't, except for the following (perhaps some insight here...)
ALL HBO mini-series (True Blood, Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, Rome, etc..)
• Sunny in Philadelphia
• Sons of Anarchy

•occasionally some Adventure Time or Flapjack with the kids (yes they are as twisted as me!).

Here's a link to Kas' fantabulous Bombshell Gallery.

Here are some of Kas' favorite Bombhell projects!

Quick Christmassy post...

...here from Katie!
I've been playing along with one of my FAVE designers Tim Holtz and his 12 Tags of Christmas- have you seen them on his BLOG?
Well I don't possess any Christmas stamps so I had to improvise and my Bombshell stamps came out to play too!

Here I used the lil Bluebird from the Love & Luck

And a Pirate's Life made a cute Santa with the Holiday Accessory set:

Just shows how versatile Bombshells can be!!
Happy Crafting!
Love GlitteryKatie

Meet Ms. September!

Since we started the Bombshell Stamps Blog after the reigns of Ms. September, Ms. October, and Ms. November, we'll be playing a bit of catch up. At some point we should be able to post the interview of the guest designers in their actual months!

But I digress.

Introducing Meredith Winston, Ms. September!!!

Here are the questions and her responses.

1. Brief info about yourself, including your name, where you live, your family (if you want), etc.
Hey All - I'm Meredith Winston. I live in a quiet town called Medway about an hour outside of Boston. I'm married to the love of my life, Ian. We've been married for 14 years and we've been together for 20. We met the summer after just before I left for my first year of college. So if you do the math I'm 37=). We have two amazing children. Kendall is six and Tyler is four and three quarters. We have a gorgeous Pitbull mix dog named Katie.

2. How long have you been stamping and/or crafting?
My entire life. Art runs in my blood. I have been doing fine art, crafting, sewing, knitting, collage, and photography for as long as I remember. My Mother was a lover of the fine arts, particularly oil painting. I vividly remember making book report covers in elementary school (with a little help from her) using charcoal to make etchings and then shading them in with colored pastel chalks!!! I used to sneak into the living room and pour over the coffee table books on Van Gogh, Cassatt, Manet, Degas, Monet, and Renoir. As the years went on my styles changed constantly.

In college I seriously studied Fine Art, Art History, and Costume History along with Fine Art restoration and preservation. I have always loved making things with my hands. I find, specifically with cards and alterable projects, that having a smaller “canvas” to work with is much less intimidating than having a huge piece of stretched art canvas standing on an easel in front of you -- which is why I never had tremendous luck in the art of oil painting (too intimidating!). I’ve also ALWAYS been drawn to mixed media projects which are why cards, alterables, scrapbooks, etc fit perfectly into my creative vibe!!!

3. What are your favorite Bombshell sets and why?
In this order:
1. Bombshell Angel -- ever versatile, always a "go-to" and she has unbelievable outfits!!
2. Girl's Ruin -- She's hot AND she's in a GIANT stiletto?!!!! What more could a girl want???
3. Rise & Shine -- Just beyond hot, sexy and gorgeous!!!

4. What kind of projects do you like to do?
Hmmmmmmmmm My first loves are cards and layouts. I love using templates/tutorials to create something like an Explosion Box. And I truly love art journaling -- mixed media all the way!

5. What are your favorite coloring mediums?
1. Copics and Prismacolor markers
2. Prismacolor Pencils
3. Acrylic Paints

6. Describe your crafting "style".
Hmmmmmmmm I like that I have the ability to be all over the board. I can go from clean, crisp and "preppy" to dark, deep, and gothic from one card to the next. I'm driven mainly by whatever image I'm working with combined with the mood that I'm in.

7. Describe your crafting process. Do you start with a stamp set? A sketch? A technique you want to use?
I'm on a few design teams so for that it depends on the issued challenge. Beyond that, I start with my stamps be it rubber or digi. Then I go for colors -- solids first then coordinating (or not so much) designer paper, starting with my scrap drawers and boxes first. I then open my embellishment drawer and pull out things I may or may not end up using. I check my ribbon hangers but wait to snip until I'm ready to start adhering as depending on the orientation of my card, or sketch or whatnot, ribbon may or may not work. I most often incorporate stitching into my projects as I love the finishing touch it lends to a project.

8. Do you have any other hobbies?
Photography is a passion of mine as is Fashion. I'm a Vogue and W Magazine addict. I love following the trends from season to season and mixing and matching my wardrobe to be funky and fun and veering constantly from the norm!! In terms of photography, in a standard year my husband and I can easily take upwards of 50,000 photos. =) It's a passion for both of us!

Creating with my children is a MUST for me on a daily basis. We are always creating something together. I want them to have art in their blood from the very start just like I did!!

9. Free for all including little facts, etc. about you.
I wear my heart on my sleeve. I'll tell you anything you want to know (sometimes to a fault) about myself. I try to reign myself in and am learning to guide myself a little better in that regard. I've fallen madly in love with regular and hot Yoga within the last year; it helps keep my Zen in check. I also run to keep "somewhat" trim ;). Both activities help to calm what I call my "insane" artist's mind. (I know you're all laughing because you can relate!!! All of us artists can!) My husband and I are moving towards creating a very Zen household and we're loving every minute of it.

I have a tattoo on my lower back and each of my inner wrists is tattooed. And I CANNOT WAIT to get another!!

I love reading but don't have a TON of time to do it as I am a very slow reader - which is why magazines and I get along famously. My favorite book of all time is The Mists Of Avalon. And my favorite movie is The Big Chill.

Lastly, here are some of Meredith's favorite Bombshell creations!

New Feature! "Meet the Bombshell Stamps Designers"!

Hi all,
Bombshell Stamps has a fantastic and eclectic design team of eight full-time designers and six monthly guest designers that we call "pin-ups".

Over the next few months, I'm going to introduce each one of them to you through an interview. Plus, I'll link you to their blogs and galleries, so you can enjoy all the inspirational eye candy!

I'm going to start with Katie Shanahan-Jones, aka Glittery Katie, who is our Blog Captain as well as a technique queen!

1. Please give a brief info about yourself, including your name, where you live, your family, etc:
My name is Katie I am a stay at home Mum to three children between nine and 14 years old and two bonkers Beagles!

We live about ten miles from the Dreaming Spires of Oxford, England. I am married to Karl, who I met at University in the first week of the first year 20 years ago! We've been together ever since! He's a very good husband who puts up with my crafting and stash mostly because he has a stash related hobby too (Model making) and therefore can't say ANYTHING!!!

2. How long have you been stamping and/or crafting?
I have made stuff since I was a child but got into scrapbooking about eight years ago and then into card making -- any excuse to stick pretty paper and play with glitter!

3. What are your favorite Bombshell sets and why?
Ooh this is a toughie! It's like asking me if I have a favourite child (which I don't if any of them are reading this!!). I LOVE Retro Cowgirls because to me they sum up everything Bombshell. They are iconic American images, they are classic tattoos in Sailor Jerry's style and yet they are versatile and can be used for so many different projects.

4. What kind of projects do you like to do?
I concentrate on cards because that shows the Bombshells off at their best, being the focal point but I LOVE to mix things up and use different media too. I've stamped and stitched Bombshells on fabric as well as made 3D cards and assemblages!

5. What are your favorite coloring mediums?
It has to be Copics! I started out with watercolour pencils then was brave enough to try ProMarkers but then because of the range of colours available I switched to Copics.

6. Describe your crafting "style".
Grungey and eclectic! I love to ink things up and distress them but like to throw in glitter or fabric as well!

7. Describe your crafting process. Do you start with a stamp set? A sketch? A technique you want to use?
It varies to be honest! Often I will start with a stamp I want to use and I'll simple colour that in and then construct the project around that image. However, I LURVE to experiment with new techniques, so sometimes I will work the stamped image to fit in with that technique. It really depends on what is my 'thing' of the moment and then I will go with the flow!

8. Do you have any other hobbies?
There are hobbies that don't involve paper and glue?! WEIRD!!! LOL! No. I love knitting and sewing. I've recently started patchwork and have made four quilts so far! I NEED to be creative and try new crafts, it's my therapy.

9. Free for all including little facts, etc. about you.
• I almost always have inky fingers and glitter stuck on me somewhere!
• I had my first (small) tattoo at 24 and my second earlier this year- I'm having my third and largest so far in the New Year to celebrate the big 40th birthday!!
• I watch far too many kids' cartoons (I'm blaming my children for this) and sing along to lots of the songs from Phineas & Ferb -- in my defense they are VERY witty and sometimes are aimed at the parents watching!!
• Brandon Flowers of the Killers rocks and his solo album is THE BEST, but he looks like he needs a good meal!

Here are three of my favorites from
Katie's fantabulous Bombshell Gallery!

December Sketch Challenge!

Here's December's Sketch for Bombshell Stamps! As usual, feel free to flip it, flop it, and make it your own. If you use Bombshell Stamps, please share it with us below or on Bombshell's forum! You could win a fabulous prize!!!

Here's my take on the sketch:

I used the cute Santa bear and the gift stack from Bombshell's Holiday Accessory set. I created the scene with a bit of masking, then put it through my Big Shot with a Spellbinder's die. I kept the paper in the die and sponged on some Distress ink. The scene was colored with Copic markers. I added some white flocking to Santa bear's hat. I stamped the sentiment and then used a label die the same way, to cut and then as a mask to color the sentiment with sponged ink. The patterned paper is from the Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad by Basic Grey.

Playing with Pinstripes

Greetings, Bombshell Fans! It's Alison, and today I am bringing you a card that not only uses this month's Sketch Challenge, but uses a Bombshell Stamps set that you don't see being used everyday. It's my hope that I can inspire you to give this underutilized set a try!
For my card I used Bombshell Angel (something we've all seen), the Man's Ruin banner (another perennial fave), and Pin-Stripes. Pin-Stripes? What? You haven't see that one??? Click HERE to check it out! What do you think of when you see Pin-Stripes? Hot Rods, right? Well, I thought they looked like wings! Take a peek!

Doesn't she belong on the Victoria's Secret Runway??? Take a second look at the Pin-Stripes set. See all of the fabulous wing options? Here's a close up.

I embossed the wings with black embossing powder, and colored the Angel in with colored pencils.

I made my Angel a little evil...but I am also the "wings" for Holiday cards too! I'll be sharing those with you another time. Think about all of the fabulous possibilities! I hope I inspired you! And I hope you pick up the Pin-Stripes set for yourself. It's a set with so many awesome possibilities! Have a great day!!!

Black Friday!!!!!!!!!!

Woo Hoo! Ms November, Mary here and this is my favorite month of the year and I get to choose the challenge. What could be better? This month's challenge is ...... Black Friday. This could be interpreted in several different ways; shopping :D , the color black (my favorite), or a truly bad day at the stock market (historical - ain't I all educational and stuff :idea: :lol: ).Even I haven't finished my challenge project yet. I will be back in a few days with a picture. I am so excited that I can hardly stand still (well actually I can't, I am a moving and doing kind of person) so I will see you right back here same bombshell time, same bombshell channel.

Everyone who plays will be entered to win this months prize package!

Here is my Black Friday challenge- It's not a card. It's a shopping organizer. I used all black and white dp and loads of embellishments. This was totally fun to make. The lists inside are downloads free from organizedchristmas.com I used a manila file folder and painted the edges black with acrylic paint then added the dp and embellishments. My wonderful husband took the pictures for me this time but they are not as true colored as I would like - they kinda look brown and I couldn't get it to correct. I don't have a picture of the back of the planner, but I added more embellishments and the handmade by stamp.

SO come and play along with our BLACK FRIDAY CHALLENGE:

Wild & Free

I'll freely state that I love sunsets and am fascinated by them, so I continue to keep trying to capture them. This attempt uses several of the new western-themed digital stamps by Bombshell Stamps, which is running a fabulous Black Friday Sale this weekend. Plus, if you sign up as a blog follower, you get the chance to win a fabulous prize.

Anyways, I digress. The big rearing horse is from the Wild Horses digital set. The cacti and the clouds are from the Desert Background digital set.

The nice thing about digital stamps is that you can change their sizes and orientations, so I did just that. Then I printed out my little scene, colored the horse, cacti, and clouds with my Copic markers. I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder to act as a resist, used the negative of a circle punch as a reverse mask, then sponged Distress and Memento inks to create a setting sun. The next step was to mask the sun with the circle and sponge the sky and desert. I added shadows with Copic marker. I have no idea if I got the position of the shadows correct, but perfection is overrated. *grin*

When I was moderately happy with my little scene, I realized it was really too big for a card, so I decided to make it into a wall hanging. So, I made a frame from old Cosmo Cricket wood-grain paper, heat embossed it, added the pewter eyelets (almost exhausted my stash of those though I have a gazillion colored ones), and added the twine. I computer generated the sentiment, printed it out on parchment paper, then stamped an empty banner from the Banner Sayings set over the words, added some Copic shading, then cut it out and glued it onto the frame. The frame is popped up with dimensional tape and was put over the scene which was matted on green and white cardstock. The angle of the phototograph makes it look uneven, but it is moderately even in real life.

I've got it hanging up on my wall now! Yay.

Thanks for visiting today!

This pretty little lady is WANTED...for being GORGEOUS!!
I do love this image from Bombshell Stamp's brand new western stamp set called Western Gal, available in both rubber and digital. The WANTED poster is also available for purchase as a digi image BUT...you can get it for free if you're a subscriber to Bombshell's newsletter!

Cardstock used is Stampin' Up's new Crumb Cake (quickly becoming one of my favorites!), Buckaroo Blue, and an unknown DSP. I used a strip of cream-colored ribbon that I recycled from a gift set and natural-colored hemp around the middle of the card. The WANTED poster is printed onto GP110 white cardstock, cut out, distressed around the edges and sponged with Stampin' Up's Creamy Caramel to help age it. Antiqued brads were inserted in the corners as "nails" to hold up the poster. The poster was popped up on dimensionals. The western gal was printed onto GP110 white cardstock, colored with Copics and shadowed using Warm Gray 2. I cut her out and also popped her up on dimensionals.

Check out all SIX of the new western sets over at the Bombshell website. If you shop this weekend, you can save 25% off of your order of $25 or more during their Black Friday sale, but hurry!! To get your discount, use coupon code "BLACKFRI".
