Concert Tee for a Rock Star 

I was recently asked to make a special card for a youg girl in out community who is sick.  It is not often I get the privlage to make such a special one of a kind card. My friend who asked me to make the card is a very Beautiful lady and has the heart of gold!!!  The tidbits of information she gave me to work with….

  1. Blue is favorite color
  2. She calles me Rock Star
  3. I call her Mini Rock Star

So my theme was rock star! And what does all rock stars have in common??? Well, probably lots of things…but, what came to my mind was Concert T-Shirts…. So, I thought I would use the Custom Tee bundle to make Mini Rock Star her own concert tee.  Kid cards are so much fun to make. Yet, I very rarely do.  Don’t know why? Just how it is!!! Because, it was such a fun experience pulling out the girl colors and the glittery paper and shimmery embossing past! Yep, I went full on Girley Girl!!!  

Custom Tee Bundle

I have been very anxious to use the Tie Dye stamp set ever sence On Stage! Well, this gave me the perfect opertunity to use it!!! I used the hear tie die to make her special concert tee 

Tie Die Stamp Set

To make Mini’s concert tee I first stamped the T-shirt stamp. Then using two of the hearts from the tie dye set, I created a heart on the tee. By layering them to creat the perfect tie dye heart!!!  Using Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight…the two colors overlap creating a pretty green!!  Then I used the custom tee dies to cut the final tee out! 

The next step was to cut the sliver glimmer paper out with the sunburst die cut! And layering it over a Tempting Turquoise card base!  The inside was decorated with another heart and more silver glimmer paper!!! And toped with a very special greeting.  The envelope was decorated with some nuvo shimmer terquoise embossing paste. And silver hearts ❤❤❤

  • Alphabet dies are great to have on had. Especially when they are photopolymer. It makes custom greeting so fun and easy! 

The greeting was created with two sets from Concord and 9th.  Just waned to give them a shout out because the stamps are really  beautiful lettering and have a hand lettered feel to them. I love that!  Stampin’ Up! has a awesome alphabet set called Brushwork Alphabet, that I use all the time!!! It is beautiful?

I was so honered to make this special card! If you would like to fallow Phoenix’s story the facebook page is Pray for Phoenix @prayforphe.  It is always amazing and awesome to see Gods hand at work.  #prayforphoenix.  If you will sind this young lady all your thoughts, prayers, and good vibes! 

Thank you for stoping by today! I hope each of you have time to create today! 

Much Love,

Today’s card is all about my favorite stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  A Nice Cuppa just makes me smile.  I love to have my morning coffee and my afternoon tea.  Not to mention that I have spent many a years working at a “coffee shop”  So, anything that has to do with coffee and tea I am all about.  A nice cuppa

This stamp set is also available in a bundle.  It is bundled with the Cups and Kettle Framelits.  Anytime that Stampin’ Up! bundles items it is an instant 15% savings!!!!  a nice cuppa bundle


Over the weekend I was working with Brusho.  Brusho is this wonderful type of  crystal watercolor.  Because it is granulated you can sprinkle it out to make lots of cool effect.  I am new to Brusho , so I was practicing what I have seen others do with Brusho.  And I will have to say.  It is pretty cool stuff!!!  IMAG2755


A few tips:

  1. The background is watercolor paper with Turquoise Brusho and Lemon Brusho.  Just sprinkle two colors on paper.  Then Sprites.  Watch the magic happen.  Don’t mess with it too much.
  2. The tea cups are stamped in Basic Gray…I had just reinked the stamp pad so it came out really dark.
  3. the Watermelon Wonder panel really makes the card stand out.  The reddish pink is opposite  green on the color wheel.  So they make each other shine!
  4. Don’t forget the inside.  I used a small strip of the watercolor background for the bottom of the card inside.  Then at the top I stamped the sentiment.  This gives me plenty of room to write a little note.


Here is the supply list:  (Brusho is available at Dick Blick)
