MIO Compadres August Lyrical Inspirations Hop



 Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the August MIO Hop.  This month the hop is centered around Lyrical Inspirations. I made two cards that reminded me of two"oldies" songs.  You should have arrived her from  Joy's  blog.  If not please use the button below to go back to Joy's blog and check out all her great creations!!!







Card 1


This first card was inspired by the "oldies" song "It's My Party" by Lesley Gore in 1965.  I cut a 3 3/4 inch x 5 inch piece from an old music book.  I stamped my image on the music paper and colored it with Copic markers.  I added a piece of twine and several sequins to make it pop.  I adhered the music paper onto a piece of decorative paper and adhered that to a piece of black card stock.  I added this to a white A2 card base.



Card 2


My second card is based on the oldies song "Too Many Fish in the Sea" by The Marvelettes in 1964.
For this card, I started with a piece of white card stock cut to 3 3/4 inches by 5 inches.  I used the diamonds from Catherine Pooler's Beautiful World Stamp of Approval Box Geometric stamp set.  I stamped the smaller fish with the smaller diamond stamp for the body and stamped half the stamp for the tail in navy blue.  I stamped the larger fish using the larger diamond stamp in the same way but made it swimming in the opposite directions.  I drew the faces on the fish with a thin lined marker.  I used orange and navy twine to accent each row of fish.  I added clear sequins to look like bubbles. I stamped the sentiment on an orange piece of card stock and used foam tape to pop it up.  I used a navy piece of card stock to back the white piece and then placed it on a white A2 card.


I hope you enjoyed my cards..  It was fun thinking of old songs and making them into cards.
