June's Bombshell Blog Hop!!!

Shiver Me' Timbers

Alison has chosen a cool Blog Hop theme to celebrate the summer, Shiver Me' Timbers!!! Here's what Alison says:
 "Arrrrrrrrr!!!! In honor of the latest Pirates of the Carribean flick, and the start of Summer (cruises and such...work with me here, folks) I decided what better theme than pirates! More like the phrase "Shiver me timbers!" Now, I am thinking pirates...but what do YOU think of when you hear that phrase?"

Here is my take on Alison's theme! I paper-pieced the galleon from the Homeward Bound Bombshell stamp set with the lush Cosmo Cricket 'Wanted' papers.
I used the compass and serpent stamps in the background (Tim Holtz Distress Ink Frayed Burlap)
I used Aged Mahogany Distress Ink to colour the ribbon.

Close- up of the paper piecing:

So if you started at my blog you can HOP along to the Stempelientje's Blog (just click on the link below) and you can see what the rest of the Design Team (and our guests!) have come up with!

I hope you enjoyed the projects by everyone, be sure to leave a little love on everyone's blogs for a chance to be entered into the Bombshell Draw for a set of stamps!!
Keep Crafting!

Bombshell June Sketch Challenge!

Can you believe it's June already- the year is whipping past but the daylight is lasting way longer, which is wonderful and June is my birthday month!!
Here is this month's sketch challenge from Kathi Rerek

Here's my take on the sketch using Sacred Heart Art, Banner Sayings and Lucky Bride:

I stamped the Banner Sayings blank banner and carefully positioned the Words 'Sacred' and 'Heart' from the Scared Heart Art set over the banner and stamped them place.

I used a cute little stamp from the Alter Skulls set

to create a border around the card:

 and to create a background for the Bride:

I used some of the very vintage 'Timeless' collection from Kaisercraft from Chrissy at Merly Impressions
and sweet little roses from 3DJean.

So pop over to the BOMBSHELL Blog to see the DT's take on Kathi's sketch and to take part in the sketch challenge.
