Bombshell's Muse Monday!

It's Muse Monday over on the Bombshell Stamps Blog. This month's we're showcasing the Tiki Party set. Every Monday, the Bomshell Girls will share projects made with this set. By the end of July,  you will have lots of inspiration.  Better yet, this set is on sale for the entire month of July! So if you don't have it yet, this is a great time to pick it up.

Here's the Tiki Party set.

Here's my card!
Cocktails from the set was stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto cardstock and onto a Post-It note, which was fussy cut and set aside to be used as a mask. The image was colored with Copic markers and then took a ride through my Big Shot in a Nestabilities circle die. The cardstock was kept inside the die, the mask was placed over the Cocktails, and Pumice Stone Distress ink was sponged over the image. The cardstock was popped out of the circle die and Orange and Lemon Spica glitter pens were used to rim the outside of the circle.

I was delighted to discover that SCACD's gorgeous Classic Timepiece die fit perfectly inside the Alterations Pocketwatch Frame! So, I diecut SCACD's gorgeous Classic Timepiece from black cardstock and set it aside while I diecut the Alterations Pocketwatch Frame from silver metallic cardstock, black cardstock, and pink dotted patterned paper from an old, but beloved My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 6x6 pad. The pink dotted paper was layered over the black Pocketwatch Frame. Then SCACD's gorgeous Classic Timepiece black clock was layered over the pink dotted paper, and the stamped circle was adhered to the center of the Classic Timepiece clock. The silver Pocketwatch Frame was then adhered over the whole thang. This was set aside to wait patiently.

Leftover scraps of patterned paper from the Down by the Shore 6x6 pad by Fancy Pants were layered up. I had some very, very, very old orange and white paper tape by Heidi Swapp which went really well with the colors of the patterned paper, so I layered onto the card front as well. I used Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood, and Peeled Paint Distress inks to edge the layers.

The Pocketwatch was adhered to the card front on dimensional adhesive. The Dienamics Oval Chain Border die was used to die cut silver metallic paper and this became the watchfob!

SCACD's fabulous new MechAnimals set contained THE perfect sentiment for this card. So I stamped it onto a scrap of the pink dotted cardstock, colored the umbrella with Copic markers, and die cut it using Alterations Tattered Banners die. It was sponged with Pumice Stone Distress ink, folded, and popped up on dimensional adhesive over the base of the Pocket Watch.

By the way, I should mention that Bombshell Stamps is happy to be hosting challenges for the entire month of July over at Outlawz Friday Alcohol Markers Group!
