Rocking Along


Just rocking along here to share a card  using some of the stamps from The Alley Way Stamps.  Ever so often I need a masculine card for a young man that's not quiet an adult and yet not a child either.  Thought this one would fit the bill.

I snapped this pic inside with not very good lightening - but used some Cherry Cobbler card stock from SU and several different snippets for the arrow looking things (surely they have a better name than that)!  I added some enamel dots that I made with Enamel Accents.  I do like the Paper Pen better than the Enamel Accents for this but these worked pretty good just the same.  Topped it off with a small piece of twine.

I'll enter this the challenge at Pixie's Snippets Playground.

Thanks for stopping by...........
Lynn

Wow, that is electric... I am a big fan of Cherry cobbler red, you know. The arrows look swell and the twine is nice. I have these arrow stamps you sent me... may be I could make a card like this with them. Thanks for the inspiration.
Love,
M

I couldnot believe it when I came on and saw this card. A little bit ago I started working on a card that whose sentiment is You Rock (had to take a break from the craft desk for my back) and on top of that I have some Photo corner punch piece left onmy desk from something I did the other day. I was trying to find a way to add them to this You Rock card. I may have to CASE your card seeing as how you did such a great job with these two things. I really like this one and it is great for a teen. GMTA I guess. Enjoy your day.

Great card! This is a wonderful design for the in between stage! I love the arrow things (chevrons? or is that completely different?) in the bold patterns, and your enamel dots look wonderful. Now I need a trip to the craft store to find Paper Pens...

MaryH said...

Yep, this is a Lynn card - more so than your beautiful one yesterday! Brillant, vivid, chic & all those other adjectives. Your young lad will love it! Liked your enamel dots too. When I tried that product, I blobbed it badly. Your pearls look fantastic. Great card! Very classy & youthful. (but I liked the Leaf one too - beautiful & soft.) TFS & Hugs
