You Rock!

This card was made using the set called "YOU ROCK" by Simon Says Stamp. It is a fun set, with a guitar, drum set, microphone, music notes, the saying and a trumpet. This card is actually going to the music teacher at my school as she is leaving us this year. I found the DP at my LSS on Wed. The card is larger (8 1/2 x 11 folded in half) so everyone in the school can sign it! I used elastic shimmery string, and kept it simple! The base is Elegant Eggplant and the other purple is Almost Amethyst (ink too!) If you have any music lovers or music fans, this stamp set is GREAT ! Check out the link to their store on the right!!!

This card cracks me up!! I put together two Simon Says Stamp sets (You Rock and Frogs jumping for joy) & made a shaker card (using the CD envelopes as in a previous post). I stamped the drums, then realized that they needed someone or "something" behind them playing I grabbed this frog (who I think resembles my husband a great deal!!), masked the drums, stamped the frog, then drew in the drumsticks (and it was a good thing Tim was here, or else I would have put them in his hands wrong....who knew the fat part goes IN the hand??? LOL) Anyways, I added little music note confetti inside, coloured the frog and drums with gamsol and prismas; stamped the envelope with Sahara Sand, and the sentiment in Garden Green. The ribbon is a dark green too....didn't turn out so great in the pic! I adore this card - I hope you all do too!

Wow, these stamps are SO FUN!!!

I just couldn't stop!!! Be prepared to be over run by FROGS!!!! Kelly, you must have been reading my mind, this card is for you!!! This was the first thought I had when I saw this stamp set....cartwheels!!!! Then, I turned it into a shaker card (the second pic shows it laying flat with the stars all askew!) The card base is Garden Green, and the ribbon is a mossy colour from Michael's. All the stamps are from Simon Says Stamp!
Here are the other cards I made - I'm telling you, I haven't been on a roll like this in a longggg time!!! These stamps just scream MOJO!!!! LOL This one is a 4x4 card on Brilliant Blue and Real Red. I used my Number Collage Cuttlebug folder on the red. The frog, again, doing a happy dance!!! LOL When I first saw this guy, I thought American Pride! I knew I had some fireworks paper somewhere so I dug it out and made a 4th of July card! The sentiment was made with Karen Foster snap stamps. I attached red, white and blue stars to the red strip and put stickles inside to make them blingy! Maybe not the best layout, but I wanted to show the fireworks and the frog...I tried cutting him out, but failed three times...LOL....a toeless frog is what we would have had!!!
For this next one, I made a bookmark, just for something different. I used this funky paper I had in my scrap bin...wish I knew where it was from, cuz I LOVE it!!! The background is Glorious Green. And now my favourite one of them all! This little dude is ADORABLE!!! The layout is SCS SC155, the paper is Chocolate Chip, and the DP is from SU, but I can't remember which one. I used dew drops and the sentiment from Mini Mates. I coloured him with gamsol and prismas.
Are you all FROGGED out yet?? LOL

Here it first Design Team card

Whooo, the pressure!!! LOL Here is my first Design Team card for Simon Says Stamp!!! You have GOT to check out their eBay store....honest to God, the BEST Customer Service on eBay. I have been shopping there for about 4 years now.....I'm sure I've spent an entire years salary there....LOL Can't resist, they have great prices, great selection and like I said, the BEST customer service!!! Tell Heidi I sent ya! ;-)

I seriously hope this card meets their expectations!!! But is this frog not THE cutest thing ever?!?!?! LOVE this set!! It is called Frogs Jumping for Joy....and so dang cute!!! Check out the belly button...LOL There are 19 sets in their exclusive line of Simon Says Stamp sets, made of high quality acrylic & they stamp soooo nice!! I had so much fun on Friday night with these guys! I actually coloured him with a Copic marker that Heidi sent me to try out! I'm not 100% sold on the markers (mainly for price), but they do colour nicely. I'd like to try a few shades of one colour and a blender, to see if they are really worth the moola!!!

I have 3 more of Simon Says Stamp sets on the way - I can't wait to see them, and play with them! I also have about 4 more ideas for this set, so I will post as soon as I get some finished!!! I'm hoping to get some stamping time tonight!!! Wheeeeeeee!!! This is so fun, and I'm SO honoured!!!
