Runway inspired Challenge #6


My second attempt at trying a challenge. This time it was based on a look from a designer on a catwalk (runway). So this was the look we had to make our card inspired by and the challenge blog can be found here.

So this what I came up with:

The main heart was made by cutting and sticking little squares (mosaic) based on colours from the top which I then die cut. I then used crackle accents on top to give it a shiny look like the top. I then wrapped some shiny red embroidery thread linked through a button which matches the colour of her jean shorts. The red heart has a pattern stamp with pearl perfect pearls on top to make it look like cuffs. The little shiny black heart matches her shoes (again with crackle accents on).

Valentines card made for my hubby

Loving the whole folded card thing I am trying out at the mo so much thy I made my Hubbies Valentines Day card using it. For those of you who don’t know, my nickname for my hubby is ‘Zombie’ or ‘Zomb’ for short.

It was made using the sugar skull stamps by Bombshell Stamps and Echo park paper

The heart has crackle accents on top and the sugar skull has screw type brad on the eyes.

The pictures be

low show the two parts of the card opened up. The right part has red shiny thread sewn on and the left side has a punk type dog
collar effect along the top left hand side.

He loved it! 🙂

Think I am going to send it in for a Bombshell stamps competition found here.

Fingers crossed it wins!


February sketch challenge with Bombshell stamps

So here’s what I came up with for the February sketch challenge on the Bombshell Stamps blog.


I used the stamp pack #2301 Man’s Ruin which I bought direct from the Bombshell shop in the US during a Christmas promotion last year. I decided to buy these stamps as I am a big fan of Burlesque and have a thing for skull and crossbones 😉 so these stamps were perfect for me!
I tried to make the main stamped picture look like a playing card with broken hearts instead of classic playing card heart. I then used a note punch, punched 3 from card and stuck them together to make it more like chip board. I then used glossy accents to make them look shiny.
You can’t really see it well in the photo but the text ‘Man’s Ruin’ is mounted on foam stickers on to black sparkly paper. The red heart (made from a heart punch) was punched 3 times and stuck together like the black notes notes but this time I used crackle accents which looks like the heart is breaking!
This is my first try at making a card from a sketch. It was quite a challenge I’ll ya’ that, but an enjoyable one!
