Bombshell Stamps Muse Monday!

It's the last Muse Monday for August. This month, we are showcasing Growing Hearts on the Bombshell Blog. This set is on sale for the month of August, so snag it at a special price while you can!

Here's my card featuring this versatile set!

The Mother Muerta image was stamped with Black Tuxedo Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock and Eclipse Tape. The Eclipse Tape image was fussy cut to be used as a mask. Mother Muerta was colored with Copic markers, masked, then took a ride through my Big Kick inside a Nestabilities die. The piece was kept in the die and Milled Lavender, Victorian Violet, Tattered Rose, and Shaded Lilac Distress inks were sponged over and around the image. When I was pleased with the coloration, I lifted the masks and put the image aside.

A sheet of patterned paper from BoBunny's Isabella 6x6 pad (currently sold out, but lots of wonderful new pads are available HERE) was slit with Fiskar's Fingertip Craft Knife and the left edge of the stamped, sponged die cut was slid into the slit. The seam was covered with satin ribbon, which adds a touch of texture to the piece. 

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Really pretty, Kathi! Love the way you slid the image into the DP! Very cool! Love your coloring and sponged die cut, too! :^)
