CCEE1902: Happy Birthday, Elvis!

Hi friends!

 Liz has another fun challenge for us at the CCEE Stampers ~
Elvis Presley's birthday! 

 Liz is challenging us to make him come alive in some way on our cards this week.
(Maybe a rock and roll theme, records, an Elvis or guitar stamp,
 or perhaps even “Blue Suede shoes.”) 
Anyway you can think to let the world know “the King” of rock and roll.

Thank you, Liz!
What a fun challenge! 

For me, this was a challenge!
I don't own a single Elvis stamp.
I know, right?
What kind of self-respecting stamper am I!?  LOL!

And it didn't occur to me {in time} to find clip art ...
so I thought fast on my blue-suede feet and went with an Elvis song.
I think many of us remember Hound Dog!

"You ain't Nothing But a Hounddog!"

For my card today, I used my adorable Gerda Steiner puppy stamps
Howl are you and the sentiment is from another GS set, Gopher It!
I stamped and colored the image, then ran it through the Cuttlebug
with the matching die to get this hound dog ~ his expression is priceless!
I used a variety of dies and papers to create the card base,
and then popped the sentiment and image to the front.

That's my take on the hip-gyrating King of Rock 'n Roll!

You can see a delightful cache of Elvis cards on the CCEE blog ~
so. much. fun!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings! ♥

  16. I had a stall at a Craft Fair in a Hotel just before Christmas. Just standing having a chat with a friend, when Elvis walked in!!! Truly!! It was a guy who really did look like Elvis and he was performing at the hotel. He was the best look alike I had ever seen. A few stallholders had their photo taken with him!

    Love you card and he doesn't look very happy! A real fun card Kelly!! Would cheer anyone up! Lol!! Have a lovely weekend. Big hugs and blessings, Carol S.xxxx

  18. Thank you for the smile this fabulous card gave me Kelly - love it!

  19. Oh my gosh, this card is wonderful, Kelly! Love it! Hugs!

  20. How could I ever forget Elvis's birthday! As a teenager I used to put a poster on my wall when it was his birthday. I still have some of his records...and I still have an Elvis scrapbook that I made (although it may have disintegrated by now...I have not looked at it in years...(they did not make acid free paper back then).
    I missed my chance to see him inn person. He was performing at a place about 30 miles from my house. My father did NOT let me go...(he thought it was too dangerous to go to the big "city" as he called it. My Uncle and Aunt were the ones that were going to drive us (Me and my cousin) and also attend the concert too. I consoled myself with the fact that maybe she would be too far back to get a good look at him...When she came back and told me she was in the Fourth row back from the stage! I felt even sadder. I think I just really dated myself with this story...smile!

  21. Whoops! I forgot to tell you how great your card is...And I think I still have that record!
