TS Monday Bookmark!

This week over on the Totally Stampalicious Blog we are challenging you to make a Bookmark!  Get your creative thinking caps on and lets see what you come up with!

I made my bookmark using a SVG file from SVG Cuts and my Cricut.  This is going in my sons Back to School kit! 

The paper is Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Ruby Red, Silver and Kraft.  I embossed my papers with my SU embossing plates and distressed the edges with Close to Cocoa, Crushed Curry and Tim Holtz black distressing ink.  

That absolutely adorable little boy is called Sean (which you can get in our Totally Stampalicious store) and I colored him with Copics.

Hey Everbody!!!  To see our Blog Hop winners and to check out our new stamp sets head on over to the Totally Stampalicious Blog!

For this weeks Totally Stampalicious challenge we are asking you to use 3 different punches on your card or project.

For my project I made a Center Step Card using our FABULOUS Cafe Scarlette stamp set!  The dp is velvet and I purchased it at my local scrapbook store.  I colored my images with copics and used my nesties to cut her out.  The punches I used were my eyelet scallop border, scalloped oval, oval and circle punch.

Here is my card for this weeks challenge!  This one actually has a very funny story to go along with it!  

I made this card for my mom as she was headed down to Ontario to visit some old friends and family.  One of her friends was taking her to the drive in movie and out to dinner.  Needless to say, he is an absolutely fabulous guy but he can be at times a bit of a snob.  My mom likes to poke fun at him so she figured the sentiment (If its got testicles or tires, it's gonna give you trouble!) would be a great laugh to give him.

During the drive in movie my moms friend (who owns a fancy sports car) killed the battery in his car and nearly flipped his lid!!!  It had surprised her so much that he was in such a huff that when they got back to her hotel she gave him his present along with the card and they parted ways.  The next morning she woke up giggling about the incident and the irony of the sentiment on the card!  Who knew that we were psychic!!! LOL

I used our Stella Tires stamp set, dp from my SU, copics for coloring my image, nesties to cut out shapes, twill from SU and the brad came from my lss.
