This girl ROCKS!

One week from today, Red Rubber Designs will roll out the new June stamp releases with a blog hop, scavenger hunt, and of course prizes!  But for now, I still have one more opportunity to share a project made with the May spotlight stamp - Hey Life.

Earlier this year, my niece and her husband adopted this adorable girl from Russia.  I have not had the pleasure of meeting her yet, but pictures of her with her new brothers just make me smile.  This was one of the first pictures I saw of her, after they brought her home, and I just love the way she is rockin this outfit!!  I have created a rock-n-roll picture frame to go with the picture.

I used the guitar from the Hey Life stamp set and a technique similar to the masterboard technique from last week's Tuesday Tutorials.  I stamped several guitars in Noir Palette Ink around the frame - turning them in different directions.  Then I did the same with the flower stamp from the Place in My Heart stamp set in Claret Palette Ink.  I created flower centers with glue and pink glitter and then added some more random glue dots with holographic silver glitter.

I used pink and black plaid paper from the Uptown Girl paper stack for the background behind the picture and a die-cut flower.  Added more silver glitter to the edges of the flower along with a little "Girlz Rock" resin center, and finished with another silver glitter flower for the corner.

I can't wait to see her and give her this picture for her very cool new room!


  1. I am glad you are enjoying the masterboard technique. And I love the stamps and colors you
    brought together for this project!

  3. What a cute gift for that cutie patootie! She will surely love it because you made it just for her.

  4. Love it! The girl is precious. I like your background paper made with stamps. Wonderful project. And Uptown Girl is one of my favs.

  5. Fabulous gift and perfect papers for a sweet little girl. I'm sure she will love it!

  6. Lovely, KC. She is a cutie! Your frame sets off the picture perfectly.
