It's A Movie Blog Hop with Hambo Stamps!

Welcome to "Hamming It Up At the Movies" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo customers and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict movie titles! It might be our favorite movie, or just one that was fun to design. I have so many ideas for movies from Hambo Stamps that we will just have to do this again! It was hard to decide which one to do~

If you arrived here from Ree's blog you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize!
A prize will be awarded to one participant whose movie-themed creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a hammin’ jammin’ way!  Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper who comments on all the blogs along the way. The winners will be announced on the Hoedown blog, as well as on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, May 25.

I have been trying to make more CAS (Clean and Simple) cards on weekends beginning this summer.  It is very hard for me, as I am known for lots of layers! But today's creation is a one layer card depicting......PATTON!  I remember seeing this movie as a young girl and remembering how gruff George C. Scott was! Scary too.


But my little Camouflage Bear is as cute and non-scary as can be! The inside says "Many Tanks!". The Tank is available at Hambo here. I wanted to be able to make and send several of these to our Troops. Camouflage Bear is an adorable set that you must really check out. And while you are at it, check out Operation Write Home, a wonderful organization that sends cards to Troops. In fact, Camouflage Bear was designed to help OWH!

I printed the Bear on my Naturals Ivory CS first, then stamped the Tank with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored all with Copic markers.

Be sure to leave a comment on every blog in the Hop, so you are eligible for prizes!! Thanks for "Hamming It Up At the Movies" with us today! We hope you enjoyed your stay.

If you played in our guessing game at the Hoedown this week, maybe you guessed that I made this card:
Lots of Judy-typical layers! Soda Shop Pigs and Hogs and Kisses are available HERE. My chipboard heart was stamped with VersaColor Neptune Pigment ink and then embossed with Amour Embossing powder. The designer paper is by Kaiser and Baker's Twine is by Really Reasonable Ribbon. My border punch is by Martha Stewart and dies are by Spellbinders. The clear button was from my stash. 

Don't miss out on some great sale deals this weekend with Hambo at the RSC "Virtual Convention" going on now through Monday, May 23. See Hambo's blog post yesterday for the sale details!

You made it all the way to the end of the hop! Be sure to leave a comment and have a GREAT day!

  3. Great card! I have a personal stake in Operation Write Home, as my son is in the Army Reserves, and his unit has had three deployments in the last year. While my son is home because he just finished Basic training and MP School, I know he will be going overseas before the year is out. I have sent over two hundred cards out for Operation Write Home as of this date! Thanks for sharing.

  10. Is it the end of the bog hop already? I was having fun! I do think I need a nap, though.
    I don't know if I've seen this entire movie but I do remember seeing the speech that George C. Scott made as Patton in front of the American Flag.
    Great choice of images! Cute card!
    We are a fomer military family...I will check out OWH.
    Thanks!

  12. I second what Libby just said. THANK YOU so much for organizing this hop -- it was a blast going through all the blogs, seeing the cards and reading the "back-stories" to each one.

    Your cards are adorable! I have a special fondness for that Camo Bear -- I just want to squeeze him! What a nice substitute for George C. Scott who I would NOT have wanted to squeeze! LOL

    I love the Soda Shop pigs too, and the colors and layers on that one. GREAT work, all around!! :)
