Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell ROCK! ( I am still humming the tune here)

OK that is my feeble attempt at making this card fit into blogland, with a non Christmas theme, days before Christmas!

I was going to make you wait till AFTER the holidays, but since I haven’t stamped in DAYS, figured I’d find a way.

So here is my ROCKIN’ Bella card


Can’t see her well enough? Sorry-not easy photographing a long card, since I am camera challenged too!

So here is a close up view of the Bella


Is she not HOT or what? Meet Rockabella! I have wanted her for a LONG time.

I thought how cool would it be to make a shaped card. So I did. It took some thought into HOW I would do it, but I think it came together really nice.

I stamped her with Brilliance ink in graphite black. Used my scallop nestabilities, to cut her out/emboss edge.Then, I colored her with myCopic  markers.  Added some dazzling diamonds to her pants, and some purplestickles to her hair. I used a silver pen, to draw a swirl in her guitar.

I used the design of her guitar, to free-hand, my own guitar shaped card. The base is done in black cardstock-edges run across a silver ink pad. The “You Rock” is  Essential Sentiments (which I feel pairs perfect with all Bella cards).

I used a flourish, at the corner of the guitar, from one of my favorite (but neglected) sets by Fancy Pants called Pollen Dust.

I stamped the image with versamark, applied heat & stick powder, heat set, then added my Rainbow Swirls Bling Bling paper.

You can see my tutorial for using that paper —>HERE

I made the arm of the guitar, from silver cardstock, and silver cord. The handle is in a plum cardstock. I LOVE purple and black-when I think Chic Rock Star! LOL!

So I hope all my ROCK STAR stampers enjoy the day.

I have a INBOX full of emails-please know I’m running on empty here! I am all over the place till Thursday, then one day to stamp (GOD WILLING), then back to the running around for the weekend. I will get to you asap! But family first-ya know!

Happy Holidays!

I do have a post ready to go for tomorrow, and I may get to do one for Christmas day-not sure. I’m not putting pressure on myself to get it done. The LAST thing I need is MORE stress. This is my fun place-so its just not allowed. Plus I don’t know that anyone will be online and miss it anyway KWIM?

Till tomorrow!
