Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop!

Welcome to the Bombshell Hump Day Hop! Bombshell Design Team Members are bringing you a fabulous hop each and every Wednesday! View rockin' projects at each stop along the way and leave comments to win a fab prize.

This week's theme is "Who's Got The Button?" Buttons hold up our pants, keep our shirts closed, and yes, they even add a little extra something to our cards. This week's challenge was to use buttons: shell buttons, faux buttons, sparkly buttons, panic buttons ... hmmm I wonder if anyone is going to use that "Easy" Button! *wink*

Once again, my entry is late but will be posted later today, so please come back to check it out.

***Here it is!***

I used the Hula Girl set and colored all the images with Copic markers. I used Spica pens to add glitter to the center sticky-outy thing of the Hibiscus. Is that the stamen, pistil? The "Aloha" greeting is from the Hawaiian Girl set.

The striped patterned paper is by Basic Grey. The wood-grained paper was in my stash. I've had the buttons for a really long time.

By the way, it took me twice as long to add the buttons, glue 'em down, and then sew them on than it did to stamp, color, mat all images, and adhere them to the card front, which demonstrates that I really AM sewing-impaired. No wonder I failed Home-Ec in Junior High!

Incidentally, I made a mistake on the card and can't fix it. I only noticed it after everything was firmly and permanently adhered. Can you find it?

Not only did I use buttons, I also used November's Bombshell sketch, which I designed! It's not the most original sketch, but it is versatile, which counts for something I suppose.

Meanwhile, grab yourself a cup of cheer and hop along to see what the other Hump Day Hoppers have in store for you! I'm sure their projects will push your Happy Button!

Here's the list!

  1. Aloha Kathi gorgeous card and nope couldnt find any mishaps!!!
    I luv that image.

  2. How cool! Love the fun border!

  3. That color scheme makes me want to go lie on a beach and sip on a margarita. Love it.

    Great use of the sketch. I keep stalling as I want to do something "awesome" which inevitably means "nothing at all"

    Beautiful card.

    BTW, I have the lovely card you sent me in my work space for inspiration. Thank you.

  4. Wonderful card Kathi, and you even fulfilled the November Sketch Challenge layour! Way to go, and makes me long for summer!

  5. Great job with the buttons. You went all the way! I can't spot a mistake at all unless you mean the direction of the pattern paper used to mat everything as it goes up and down on two images and side to side on the other two. Is that it?? If not than I can't find it.
    Great little card and I love the feeling it sends. Don't you love how cards send feelings too?

  6. I think the card looks flawless, personally- but is it that the wood grain on the bottom of the three tiles goes the opposite way to the two above?

    I think that's ok because the grain goes the same way on the larger panel. :)

    I love it. I must get my hands on some teeny tiny buttons!

  7. Who says bombshells have to be for Christmas? I love the hula girl card.
