"Boy Toy"

Time for being hot...it's summer! So what's the deal with a "Boy Toy" bloghop? Well, it's dedicated to the men in our lives. It doesn't have to be a boyfriend or husband..... maybe a soldier, a father, or just a masculine theme or card. Bombshell Stamps have always been great for "manly" things, but now more than ever. Just think about the new digi clothes stamps for the Bombshell Angel- the policewoman, firewoman, etc... they are GREAT for sending out that perfect card...AND MAN...the new motorcycle stamps!!! They are rockin'!! As a rider myself, I'm just LOVING these new stamp sets!! There's a bike for every rider- cruiser, chopper, vintage- you name it, Bombshell has a motorcycle stamp for you! And the coordinating stamps are perfect! So, here's my contribution to June's theme "Boy Toy":

The bike image is from the recently released Harley Bikes stamp set. The image in stamped onto GP 110 white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then smudged around the edges. The image is layered onto a piece of SU's Basic Black. The card base is also Basic Black with a layer of metallic silver cardstock which has been embossed using my Cuttlebug and the Diamond Plate embossing folder. The "map" is a page that I snitched from my husband's road atlas...he'll never miss it (I hope!). Large silver brads were used along with a "Detour" sticker and a "curve ahead" road sign dimensional sticker- both from Reminisce. I thought the "curve ahead" sign was perfect for a bike card- every biker just LOVES riding those "twisties".

Now, head on over to the following blogs to see some other fabulous "Boy Toy" creations!
