Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hey Y'all!!  Cat here and excited to be! I just enjoy hosting these challenges and hope to inspire at least a few of ya! LOL!  Ok, have you guessed by the title yet what your challenge is going to be?  I bet you hae, smart cookies here!  You are to take a song, any song, any genre, and let it be your inspiration!  I want you to tell us what song in your write up of the picture when you upload it to the gallery too! 

My example was inspired by one of my all time favorite bands, Credence Clearwater Revival!  And the song is Down on the Corner! 

Here is my card using the brand spanking new StampTV kit Sentimental Summer

For the card,I focused on decorating it 'down on the corner'....get it?  LOL!  the flower is stamped then I also used pencils to give it more contrast. and I used one of Gina's bow ideas on the sentiment panel too! 

Ok, its your turn now!  I cannot WAIT to see what you all come up with! 

And the small print:

Be sure and have your creation uploaded to our gallery with the tag STV17MON23 and no later than

Sunday, June 111th, 8PM CST for your chance to win an awesome $20 gift certificate from Gina K Designs!!

Please tell me that someone remembers Misty by Johnny Mathis and can use their Misti in making their card! Just kidding!

Oh by, do I.  That was "our song" with my very first boyfriend waaaaaaay back in the early sixties! I'm all for the Misti idea, by the way!!!

What a beautiful card and a fun challenge.  Now, to think of a song.  Oh, never mind, I know which song, just have to figure out how to make it a card.

WoW, what a fun challenge, got to think really hard on this one!!! Your card is cute, I didn't get it at first till I read your song, then said How Clever!!! Thanks for hosting this week.

Fun challenge. And even though I said I was going to use a card from the masculine card challenge for our upcoming anniversary, I'm thinking I may save it for his birthday, then do a card for this challenge depicting "our song." I do like the idea of using Misty though too. LOL

Beautiful card, I had forgotten about making bows this way.  thanks so much for sharing

Beautiful card, Cat! Charlene, love the Misti idea! Haha! I'll just have to put my cd's (I know they aren't the thing to have, but I do) of Elvis on and see what happens! Love the idea!

AHHHHHH the possibilities!!!!

Awesome challenge, Cat! As Robin said - AHHHHHH the possibilities! LOL Now to think of a song ......

What a beautiful card and I love how you used the song to design it. I just had to join in with at least one entry. So HERE is what I came up with. 

What a beautiful card! Excited for thiis awesome challenge, thanks Cat!

That is a gorgeous card, Cat! I thought it was "Hello" by Adele until I read the rest of your post lol. I remember your song ♫ which is so fun to dance to!
