Rock Star 05378
On my first card, I’m using the wonderful, grunge style Rock Star set. I know this set will look great on masculine and teen birthday cards and while it does have an edgy, grunge thing going, somehow it still looks a little clean when I get hold of it, lol. Guess I’m just not a grunge type, but it does show that you don’t have to distress it a bunch to have a fun look.

After stamping and adding a little color, I die cut the guitar using an out of the box technique and the largest star from the Sparkling Star dies. I used a smaller star for the greeting then added a little stickles to them. The layers behind the stars were fussy cut. The background was die cut on the right side four times w/ a curved die then strips of peach & aqua inserted underneath and few more die cut stars on top. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

I usually forget to show you the inside, but I remembered on these. Here’s a little look at this one using some of the left over frames and pieces from the front.

On my second card, I’m using the Music Speaks, Just a Note sets along with the new Faithful Fish Pattern die.

The large treble clef was stamped, colored & fussy cut. I stamped part of the image on another piece, masked it a bit and stamped the bird & music bar. After coloring I die cut it and added the die cut & embossed fish pattern behind it. I actually die cut this twice out of the aqua and on the smaller one, I cut it across the middle and shortened it. Since the long oval covers the seam, you don’t even see it.

In between the two aqua layers, I put a piece of the Chalkboard paper collection. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

 And here’s a peek at the inside.

  1. I love the rock card and how you created the “shooting” part of the stars on the back of the card allowing the color to peek through. Genius.

  2. Julie – WOW!! WOW wow wow!! You really do know how to rock the grunge look – and you’re right, it’s grunge but still so clean! Your coloring, dies, background papers all make this card fresh and cool. But that’s not all – your second is just breathtaking to me!!!!!!! Your coloring is amazing as always, and cutting the background die to size just brilliant. I cannot get enough of this beauty!! You’re always such an inspiration Julie – thank you for sharing throughout the year.
    Hugs and Blessings,
