Rock on....

Hey peeps. I'm back with a card I made using (new to me) dies. The other day whilst perusing Pinterest for rock and roll themed cards, I found an awesome card that screamed to me to be CASE'd. Unfortunately, I didn't note who made it and for some reason cannot-to-save-my-life find it again! So if this card looks somewhat familiar, thank you!

 here's the inside:

The original card was red, white, and black. It did have a partial stencil in the bottom right corner and red splotches, with the guitar popped over the stencil and a sentiment in another place on the card. But that's where I ended the case, as my version veered off, stage left, as it were. I used the big star and made that and the guitar center stage on my card. (See what I just did there?!) I stamped my sentiment in the bottom left corner, and also added black and smoke colored teeny tiny rhinestones around the star. (I'm hoping since I used said colors of rhinestones, that my nephew, to whom I will be sending this to, doesn't think it's too girly) ☺

It just so happens that the new Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is called 'It's a Guy Thing', you know, make a masculine card. So I'll be entering this card over there.

Also, Naughty or Nice challenges has a 'New' themed challenge, and hey, I'll enter this there as well.

Lastly, but certainly not leastly, Darnell at djkardkreations has her 3rd NBUS challenge going on. 

Well, I should really stop now and get dinner ready. *koff* Thanks for lasting until the end and I hope your evening is a relaxing one!

  1. Oh this is so cute, I may have to case it too

  2. Great card, Chris, love the red, white and black color scheme. Thanks for playing along in the Simon Says Stanp Wednesday challenge this week!

  3. Loving the grungy rock and roll vibe! Those splatters are deee-vine.

  4. Hope your day rocks! I love it. It has a great rock and roll grunge vibe and not too girly at all! I think I might have the guitar die. I may have to CASE you! :-P

  5. This is pretty fab, and those sequins are like a sparkly rock star shirt. Think Neil Diamond and you'll do fine.

  6. Call them studs instead of rhinestones and everything is just fine. :) This is definitely a dude card, and it's a rockin' one! Nicely done!

  7. This is SO up my alley! I may have to CASE this off of you :) Love the rock n roll feel and I'm glad you shared it with us at Naughty or Nice Challenges :)

  8. Super stylish! Thanks for sharing your card with us at Naughty or Nice Challenges, Jo x

  9. This is definitely a dude card and, well, Chrispy, you ROCKED it! (You see what I did there?) It should be bought by a television network for bigggg bucks to use as advertisement for an upcoming American Idolish kind of show!! (Or, better yet, to use on THE American Idol show!) I noticed that you like to speak parenthetically, which is also a fond trait that I have (well, maybe not fond to everyone) had forlikever! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #3! (I appreciate your support!!) Have a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Dinner, pfffft. This is utterly awesome, Chris! So perfectly guy-ish and it totally rawks!

  11. What a great card! Loving the studded star and guitar. So perfect for a dude card. And love the subtle masking on the background. SO cool!
