It’s Only Rock-N-Roll

Maybe it's not the Rolling Stones but a simple rock-n-roll technique added to Stampin' Up!'s Always bird makes some beautiful music!  Also, don't miss this beautiful deal on the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit now through March 17!  Up to $375 worth of Stampin' Up!'s rockin' stamps and rollin' accessories for $159 . . . including shipping!  It's worth a peek whether you're a seasoned or beginner stamper.

Have you tried the rock-n-roll technique?  TIP: Just ink your solid image stamp in the lighter of two colors and then roll the edges in a deeper color . . . they don't necessarily have to be in the same color family . . . go for it.  Stamp it out for a unique, custom look every time.

Groovy  Guava Designer Paper is layered over Groovy Guava Textured  card stock.  I used the Corner Rounder Punch to round one corner of each (and the back).  I then rocked the bird in Groovy Guava ink and rolled in Purely Pomegranate.  The image is matted on Groovy Guava card stock.  I used a 1/4" circle punch to create a neat little passage for Groovy Guava Double Stitched Ribbon to deftly slide through and terminate on the right in a tab.

The "a" sentiment is stamped in Purely Pomegranate and cropped with a 1 1/4" Circle Punch.  The small flower is inked in Groovy Guava, punched out with a 1/2" Circle Punch and popped up on a Stampin' Dimensional.   The final touch was the backing of a Scallop Punch Circle in Groovy Guava Textured card stock.

The lower coordinating sentiment was stamped in Purely Pomegranate and snapped out with a Key Tag Punch.
