Battle of the Bands HOP with Hambo Stamps!!!

Welcome to "The Battle of the Bands" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo friends and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict Band groups! It might be our favorite, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from Lori'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 Band-Themed creations tickles the Bacon Bits' fancy in a hammin' jammin' way!  Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper who comments on all of the blogs along the way.  The winners will be announced on the Hambo Company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, May 29, as well as at the Hambo Hoedown Challenge blog.  We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, May 26 at 5PM CST.  Don't miss it!

I wonder if you can guess the name of my Band Creation???  It is alternative...Has tree's in it's name.... Some of the songs they sing are "Animal" and "Everybody Talks"....Can you guess?!?

OK here is another hint....Neon...Any guesses?


The name of my band is...NEON TREES!!!!

Here is a little tutorial of how I made my card for this fun hop.

1. I stamped my tree then masked it and stamped two more trees right next to it
2. I stamped my tree again on three NEON colored pieces of cardstock
3.  I then fussy cut out each NEON tree.

4. I then used my Helmar Professional Craft Glue to glue my NEON TREES to the originally stamped scene.

TA-DA...My NEON TREES are now finished!

Here I also used my Helmar Professional Craft Glue to glue my NEON Pink, Neon Blue and Neon Yellow Economy Grosgrain  ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to my flags.

Now jam on over to Jane's Blog for another great Band group that will have you tappin' your foot!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I was so excited to be included in this fun hop!!  It has been a while since I have done anything with Hambo.  They were one of my first (and favorite) DT's!!!!  Thanks Monica, Time and Judy for having me!!!

  3. HAHAHA Jenn - you could have started with the hint "They are called Neon Trees" and I wouldn't have guessed it -- but only because I've never heard of that band until now.
