Hello again and welcome, it’s Karen here today. There’s a new release at Gerda Steiner Designs and I’ve chosen the You Rock stamp set to use on my card today. This is such a fun set to use for those younger people in our lives … oh, who am I kidding? It’s good for those older people too! So here’s the card I came up with.
It’s almost a one layer card too! I popped the snail in the front up on foam tape, so I think that means it doesn’t qualify as a true one layer card. I created the background by stencilling on my card front. I used the MFT Grassy Edges stencil and some Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink for the grassy section. I created a little hill for the main rock to sit on as well. For the sky, I used the Cloud Edger stencil from A Colorful Life Designs and some Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud ink in the Clear Day shade.
I used my Copic markers to colour in the images, and have listed them below if you’re interested. After fussy cutting everything out, I added some Glossy Accents to the sunglasses. I positioned all the characters on the front to determine my layout and where I wanted the music symbols to go. I then stamped on and clear heat embossed, the music symbols ( I did add some more music symbols from the Carol Kittens stamp set). Finally, I glued the characters down and popped the front snail up on foam tape before adhering him down. On the inside, I stamped the sentiment “Hope Your Birthday Rocks”. So another quick and easy card! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you are having a great day!
Copic Markers used:
Rocks - W2, W3, W4, W5
Snails - BV23, BV34, V20
Mouse - C3, C2, C1, C0, R00
Guitar - R39, R29, R35

Hello everyone, it's Karen here again today. I’ve got a fun new card fold idea for you today, using the adorable “Pigeons”stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs. This is a 5” x 7” card that folds flat, but pops out to create a 3D card when it comes out of the envelope. There’s room on the back of the card to write a message and to decorate if you want. I have to give a shoutout to Sam Calcott of...
