Stamp Simply #161 - Hard Rock Cafe

Oct. 15 – ssnotime161 – Hard Rock CafĂ© – Today we are thinking *hard rocks* -- NOT music – OR eating!!!  LOL!!! Think metals and stones as added elements for your project.  Metallic pens, metallic papers, and rhinestones -- gold, silver and diamonds – right?  Feel free to use copper, rubies, emeralds, pearls, etc.   Use these types of beauties to embellish and enhance your work today.

Play along and link your project on Sharon's blog, No Time to Stamp, using Mr. Linky. See what colorful projects the team cooked up this week....our Ring Leader - Sharon, Janine OrchardA J OttoDeb SaarenenDeb NeermanBarb Andersand Barb Schram.

This challenge made think about vacations and the Hard Rock Cafes and Casinos I've been too.... LOL.... fun times!!!! I wanted to do something funky and different with my card. I had not used this stamp or this Nestie yet.  I thought this might be a cool stamp for a Halloween Party Invite. Keeping with the "rock/metals" theme I used Copper Metallic card stock and added jewels all around the edges. Don't know where the string came in to play... but felt compelled to wrap it around.... the little spokes sticking out of the nestie were telling me to wrap something around them! Would have been better if I had some spider web stuff to wrap around it!


  1. Love that you used the Copper metallic paper and love all your gem studded accents! And the string is JUST perfect for Halloween -- has a spider web feel - LOL! GREAT Halloween card!

  2. WOW!! Love this card Jenny! The paper is amazing!

  3. Way too cool! Love it! Hey, we used the same embossing folders . . . great minds . . . . LOL!
