Here is a card where I have masked two stamps together. I LOVE to mask different stamps together and create new scenes. I also added the word "LOVE" to the banner. I've used the Sea Monster stamp from the Homeward Bound set as well as the Blossom Banner from the Bombshell Angel set.

Painted Metal

Hi All!

It's Jodi here with another Bombshell tutorial. This time I'll be using the new Tim Holtz Distress Paints, Ranger Adhesive Foil Sheets, embossing folders and of course a fab Bombshell Stamp - Vintage Raceway.

Here's what you'll need: Distress Paints, Adhesive Foil Sheets, an embossing folder, a sanding tool and a handy dandy craft sheet.

First, emboss the Adhesive Foil (I used my Cuttlebug, it goes where I go).

Next, take your desired color or colors of Distress Paint and cover the embossed foil. I used Salty Ocean, a little Peeled Paint and Picket Fence. If you're impatient (like me) you can speed the drying along with a heat tool.

After the paint is dried, I lined the foil buck up in the embossing folder and using a sanding tool, I sanded off some of the color on the raised parts. I put it back in the embossing folder to get better contact with the sanding tool. (it will help keep the image raised).

Color up your image and your done! I used Vintage Raceway and colored it with Copics. I added a few little details with a silver pen to tie it together some more and stapled it as well for good measure.I thought the metal with the paint sort of reminded me of road signs and went well with the car.

I hope you give it a try! It's super easy and fun. Thanks for checking it out!

Until Next Time,
Jodi :-)

Ms. March's Challenge - Bombshells X 3

Hi there! It's time for me, Marie aka Bombshell's Ms. March, to host my challenge for this month!

I like to use several different stamps together to create scenes. Honestly it's hard to use just one of these lovely stamps! My challenge is that you have to use three Bombshell stamps on your project.

Sheena Douglass stamps
StazOn jet black ink

Fabulous Friday Tutorial - Herb Plant Markers

Hi Everyone!

I used the Tattoo Font and Bone Font Stamp Sets to make herb plant markers for some clay pots I purchased. Since I will be keeping my herbs on the kitchen table by the window, I wanted to decorate the clay pots a little. See below for the how-to!

Bombshell Stamps - Tattoo Font, Bone Font, Speed Shop (Skull Stamp) Sets
Staz-On Ink in Jet Black
Die cutting / embossing machine (ex - eBosser)
Sizzix Oval Framelits Dies (2 7/8" x 4 3/8" oval)
X-acto knife
Hole punch
Ric Rac (or ribbon/elastic)
White stiff felt
Martha Stewart Crafts Paint (Scottish Highlands); thin small paint brush
Clay Pots

Using my die cutting machine I cut out an oval from stiff felt with a Sizzix Oval Framelits die (2 7/8" x 4 3/8" oval). 
Then I used a hole punch to punch a small hole at the ends of the oval. Since, I couldn't get the punch all the way through the felt, I finished cutting out the circle with an x-acto knife.
Next I stamped the names of the herbs (and some stars and skulls) with Staz-On Ink onto the felt ovals.
If you'd like you can also paint inside the lettering like I did below with green paint and a small thin paintbrush.
Then I weaved some Ric Rac through the punched holes and tied the ends in a bow behind the clay pot.  Ribbon or elastic would work also.
And all that's left to do is add some herb plants!
Hope you all have a fabulous and fun Friday!
- Kim
