You Rock!

I seriously Laughed Out Loud when I saw this stamp in the book! It became one of my favorites.  It's actually called You Rock and it's a single wooden stamp and it could be altered to make two stamps out of it, by cutting off the You Rock part and placing it on the opposite side of the wood block, just in case you wanted to use just the sentiment or just the rocker.
It is a simple card using the masking technique.  I stamped the rocking chair in Momento Black ink, and then again on a scrap and cut out just the rocking chair to use for the mask.  I placed the cut out on top of the cardfront chair, and then inked up two of the Border stamps, the hearts in Real Red, and the dashed lines in Old Olive, and then stamped each one seperatley over the mask.  It gives the illusion of the rocking chair sitting on top of the border. I punched out Old Olive and Real Red flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch and the center of the flower from Daffodil Delight from the 1/4" Circle hand held punch.  To finish it off, I colored two different size Basic Rhinestones with red and yellow Blendabilities and adhered them to the card.
