Rock My World . . . . . . Rocker Card

Hi everyone, it’s Tutorial Thursday at The Stamping Chef and I’m giving the recipe. For today’s recipe we’re going to be whipping up a rocker card. I love shaped cards and a rocker card is a free-standing card that rocks back and forth!!!!! It also brings to the point, that I am “off my rocker”.

Let’s get started, first here is your supply list:
2 sheets 12 x 12 paper for the card layers ( my card is an 8.5 inch card, the image you want to rock, various adhesives, decorations, and embellishments 

  • I chose today to color Sam which is a retired image from TheStamping Chef but you can use any image you would want
  • Sam was colored using my Spectrum Noir Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils, and Gelly Pens. With my eyes, I color them first with the colored pencils with adding hi-lights with my Gelly Pens 

  • Next, I made using Make the Cut, an 8.5 inch circle along with a decorative 6.5 inch circle – these are the base for the rocker card 
  • The shapes were folded in half and glued together leaving the bottom circle open   

  • Sam looked like she would be sitting on something, thus I used my Cricut Heritage Cartridge and cut out the divan 3.75 inches along with the blackout feature. 
  • The divan has an opening in the cushion where I sat Sam’s butt and did a little more fussy cutting around her legs making it look like she was sitting on the divan 

  • My sentiment, “rock my world” was written using my Sakura Micro #3 pen which gives the look of calligraphy which I then chalked around the edges

  • Next comes the fun part, embellishing – I used pearls from Miriam’s Crafting Supplies for the buttons on the divan and of course, Sam just had to have a simple “diamond” in her ear 

Hope you enjoy today’s recipe and can’t wait to see on TSC’s Recipe page on FaceBook your version of a rocker card!
