Hello! It’s been a long time since we’ve had a Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop…and I’ve really been itching for one. You should be coming from my friend Cheryl’s blog. If not, you can start back at the Bombshell Blog…but I’ll have the full hop list at the end of my post. This hop was thought up by Ms. April, Rachael. We are to do something wedding themed…and thinking laterally is ok too (i.e.: bachelor party). I knew just what I wanted to do. Did you see my post from last Friday? It was for the latest Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, and I made a scrapbook page from my medieval wedding. So…I just had to make another one for this challenge! And perhaps eventually I will get my album done! 😉
Now tell me…can you spot the Bombshell Stamps?
Do you see them??? I used a set from the Pin Stripes collection and the crown that’s from the Butterfly Queen set. Here’s a close up.
My wedding dress (handmade by my Mom!), had tri-colored metallic cords on it. Just beautiful. So, I decided to carry that theme into my layout. I mixed metals like crazy! The pin stripes are embossed with silver. The crowns are inked with a color called Lightening Black (Tsukineko), which is black with gold flecks, the veining in the leaves are gold and copper, the strip on the bottom has gold foil and the damask paper is completely foiled. Plus I used Platinum Liquid Pearls. Me likey the shiny!
This is one of my favorite photos from the wedding (and we have a LOT of pictures!). Having the trumpeters behind us, with the beautiful door of the mansion we got married in…us looking so overjoyed…it’s just a great photo!
You can see the gleam coming off of the papers here. You can click on any of my pictures to see it bigger.
This was such a fun page to make. I love using teeny Bombshell elements like this. Unexpected. I actually think I want to hang it rather then put it in an album! We’ll see.
Now get on with your hopping! 🙂 The next stop is the ridiculously talented Katie. I am quite sure that you will be wowed by her awesomeness! Enjoy the hop and have an inspiring day!!!

Alison, STUNNING! Your layout is so elegant and love the way you used the pin stripes and the crowns. Completely unexpected! Yep, this one needs to be displayed on a wall 😉
Alison – oh how lovely!!! This is really understated elegance. Beautifully done!
So fantastic. I love the colors you used and the way you used the pin stripes as elegant accents.

Just lovely. I would definitely hang it so you and others could enjoy it all the time.
I love the way you fit the stamp in. Elegant and funky!

Nicole Maki says
So pretty. What a great LO and I like how you used the Bombshell Stamps.
I have a stack of 12×12 frames from Michaels and I hang up all my LOs if they are really significant to our family (like a special wedding photo, babies birth etc.)
