Hambo Stamps Blog Hop - Channel Surfing

Welcome to the "Channel Surfing" Blog Hop sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo customers and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict TV show titles! It might be our favorite show, or just one that was fun to design.

If you arrived here from Carolyn'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! Here is the lineup:

Talk to the Ham - Hambo blog
Deborah -------------> You are here!

A prize will be awarded to one participant whose TV-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 23.

I really couldn't decide on what show to create as I have two absolute favorites and one that I enjoy to watch! So... I made all three! Lol! Here is my first:

Any idea what show this could be from? I have gotten hooked on this years new show "Smash." I created this card using a few of Hambo Stamps digital images on Photoshop. I tried to keep the coloring the same as shows' title and that made for coloring this pretty easy! The letters were stamped and cut out using Blingbet from MFT. I then added some rhinestones to the letters.

How about this one? Oh... This is dh and my favorite show! This was made to replicate the TV show "Castle." I used Hambo's rubber stamp of Skyline and some alphabet stickers from Paper Studio for the title. I cut out the pen from a printout of the actual show title and added some Sakura Glaze pen in black over it. The "blood" is some cut out from my MS Halloween paper pack I had. I sponged around the edges and colored in the city with my grey Koh-I-Noor pencil.

And for my final card:

This card to made to depict the daytime show "The Chew." I used the apple rubber stamp from Hambo and I stamped Hambo using MFT's Banner alphabet. I hand wrote the tag line using my own words to describe Hambo instead of using The Chew's tag line. (of course!)
