Today the Cardmaker Blog Team is having a Rock Stars blog hop. We all designed cards inspired by a song. Totally fun! I had PLENTY of help picking my songs. (My kids loved this and had great song ideas for me:)
In the end I picked songs, with their blessing, that are inspiring and fun (and had suitable lyrics!) and used them to create two cards. (You can click the song titles to see the music videos for the songs.)
My first song is FIREWORK by Katy Perry:
My Favorite Things for this card and then used a fireworks silhouette file to create the fireworks. (TIP: I cut the fireworks from the blue patterned paper and then peeled off some of the paper so that some of the offshoots were white. I used a butter creme Copic marker to color it yellow to get two colors in the design.) I added some red rhinestones in the center and some red paper behind the one building. I adhered some more red patterned paper on the card base and some twine from The Twinery and finally a SRM sticker finish the design.
Supplies: white cardstock (Gina K Designs); patterned paper- Dots & Stripes: Ruby Red, Winter Park: Light Blue (Echo Park); Dienamics die- skyline border (My Favorite Things); Silhouette file- fireworks; rhinestones- Recollections, Michael's; baker's twine- Charcoal (The Twinery); tiny attacher stapler (Tim Holtz); SRM stickers- Life is Good; corner rounder punch (Creative Memories).
The second song that I chose was HONEY BEE by Blake Shelton:
The Cat's Pajamas for this card---Honey Bear and Happy Camper. I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers and cut them out. I cut out the honeycomb paper from Jillibean Soup to place under the bear. I cut one extra honeycomb out and adhered it on the top of the card and stamped the sentiment over it. The finishing touch is some Lemondrop baker's twine from The Twinery.
Supplies: white cardstock (Gina K. Designs); Stamps- Honey Bear, Happy Camper (The Cat's Pajamas); patterned paper- Coordinating Atomic Soup paper (Jillibean Soup); memento tuxedo black ink; Copic markers; baker's twine-- Lemondrop (The Twinery); tiny attacher stapler (Tim Holtz); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories).
I cannot wait to check out the songs/cards by the rest of the team. Here is the hop order:
