Make a Wish Tinker Bell Birthday Card

Anyone that knows me...knows that I LOVE Tinker Bell!  Love her so much that I collect Tinker Bell stuff and even have a back tattoo of my favorite fairy!

So it would make so much sense to create a Tinker Bell themed birthday card....duh!

This was honestly an easy card to make, quick...I mean like.... 7 minute quick!

 I finally opened a children's playing deck of cards....of course themed Tinker Bell! 

Created a simple frame using dark purple cardstock  (it was even from my scrap pile) for the card and rounded the corners to make the playing card.

I used left over Tinker Bell cardstock for the upper portion of the card and added a soft purple to the lower section which I stamped "WISH" and adorned with a little sequined flower and brad.

Easy!  Right?

Remember to take a look around your child's room and most likely you will uncover unused or over-abused cards from some game or card collection.  
Think "Old Maid"  how cute would that be for a birthday card! 
Using left over Pokeman cards, baseball cards..... 
Mostly the idea here is to use what you got, recycle and make something new and fun!
 What are some ideas you have?

Who will?

Tis the season to start seeing black cat images everywhere!  
Why should this Rock Girl be any different?

Happy Birthday Old Lady!

 Okay, so I LOVE snarky cards!  I think they reflect my sense of humor.  I hope that when I create these type of cards that I do not offend anyone!

Happy Birthday Old Lady Card
The outside card  was created by using a stamp from Las Vegas Stamp Company.

I used color pencils to color the image and added Glossy Accents to the sunglasses!

Framing the image against the hot pink makes the image stand out from the busy background and setting it apart.  *** If you are new to card making and stamping this is an easy way to start making awesome looking cards!

So what is inside the card?
Are you ready for snarky???

At Your age
getting lucky is
finding your car
in the parking lot.
Happy Birthday!
Sometimes I crack myself up!

Baby Shower Card

So it seems like it is baby season for Rock Girl Custom Designs!
No, not me personally......

I have had so many orders for custom baby albums lately!  Baby albums are one of my favorite items to create.  I just love all the cute baby stuff and now that my customers love it too!  

Here I created this card using a Last Impression brass template.  I dry embossed the image on cardstock.  I cut each section out and re-assembled the little pull duckie.  I added a little blue brad on the wheel for a little demension.  I added the purple organza ribbon and a felt puffy heart at the top.

So what do you think?  Is the background too busy for this card?

1950's design inspired Happy Birthday Card

Loved making this 1950's starburst inspired card!   As some of you already know from reading my recent posts,  I am obsessed with thrift stores right now and been really lucky to pick up some really cute pieces for my craft room for REALLY cheap.  I feel lucky that I have the ability to see something ugly and find its beauty again.   Recently I purchased some 1950 canister sets, a wicker shelf, and have brought new life to them.   I am totally into the retro look at this very moment and hoping to make my new craft room into "cottage shabby"  aqua, pink and white. 
I recently purchased a mirror in the 1950 starburst design which now hangs over our bed.  LOVE IT!
So what inspires you?
