You Rock

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Today is Vinyl Record Day! For many Vinyl Records are a thing of the past, but in recent years they have started to make a big comeback with even new albums being released. For our challenge this week it's all about music … bonus points if you included an image of a vinyl record on your card. 

It's been a month or so since I have played with my Missees paper doll dies, so I decided to pull them out to create the girl for my card inspired by the girls from the 50's & 60's.

As you can see, I created a Slimline card using slimline dies from Picket Fence Studios to create the layers.

To create my vinyl record background, I used dies from SugarPea Designs Greatest Hits Stamp/Die sets. I added a smaller record to the girls hand which was also created using this die set.

I added a sentiment to the card using a Honey Bee Stamps stamp set. This was stamped onto a speech bubble using one of the dies from Whimsy Stamps Comic Speech Bubbles die set.

I created a double pop-up for the inside of my card using the pop-up mechanism from Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set. As vinyl records are round I added circle dies to each of the labels.

On the top circle I added a sentiment from one of the Honey Bee Stamps stamp set along with the birthday sentiment from the SugarPea Designs stamps set.

On the bottom circle pop-up I added a record being held by a hand, cutting of the arm so it can't be seen when the card is closed.

I used the record die from the SugarPea Designs die set to add the border along each side of the card.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
