Sneak Peek: Rockin!

Saturday, February 28, 2009


I LOVE everything about the 80's! I love the movies and music from that decade, but the clothes I think can do without. Ok, almost everything then! Although, I did follow a few trends back then; like the ra-ra and bubble skirts, big hair, smiley shirts and I even owned a pair of white robot glasses! Seriously I did! And I was the coolest thing at camp that year!! LMBO!

I had a great time finding those webpages - almost as much fun as I had making this card for today's sneak peek! Introducing Rockstar Hanna!

She's wild isn't she?! I {heart} the cartoon Hanna's with their bright eyes! This set has some of the coolest individual stamps. I wanted to try show you a range of them, so I have two cards today that showcase 6 out of the 13 stamps in the set.

This first card uses the main image in the set. Hanna and the amp are really one stamp; I snipped off the 'cord' that links the guitar to the amp because I figured I'd accidently cut it off anyway! I cut around the edges of my 5.5" x 5.5" card with some scalloped decorative scissors. The patterned paper is by KI Memories and I used both sides of it. Since there were stars on the pp, I punched stars out with my Fiskars star punch from glitter and black cardstock for some added sparkle. This would make a great card for a teenager, don't you think??

Here's a much simpler card using 5 stamps from the new set. Can you spot them all? (The sentiment is by Hampton Art and I found it at Michaels.) Even though this is a completely different look to the first card, I like it just the same. The old Basic Grey paper makes it more edgier and even a bit manly don't you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great Saturday! I'll have another sneak peek for you tomorrow! Stay tuned.

(using my best valley girl voice: oh my GAWD, these are TOTALLY COOL!

I often wonder how much of the hole in the ozone layer my friends and I created back in the late 70s / early 80s with all the hairspray we needed for our big hair! LOL!!

These are terrific images and love what you've done with them. Sure wish I had this set a year ago when I was trying to put a rock card together for my great-nephew who plays the guitar! You are really tempting me with this one!
