I want to hear you ROAR


So I know things have been a bit quiet on the blog front of late... hangs head... I have been busy working on lots of stuff, some of which I can't show you yet.... ;)   But mostly, I have just been busy.

One card I wanted to share with you today is my paper ode to Katy Perry's pop anthem/song Roar.  I don't know if it's hit your radio waves yet, but it's all over stations in Northeast Ohio and I kinda love it. It's so catchy and a great message too.  Check out the video here.

When you find inspiration in recent popular culture, sometimes it's a challenge to figure out how to capture it without a stamp set, for example, that spells it out. So I turned to my computer and came up with this:


I created a text box in Microsoft Word and typed my text and printed onto a piece of lightweight cardstock.  Next, I stamped the image of the lion (The Craft's Meow- Birthday Puns) and the starburst (Avery Elle- Bright Days). I trimmed the cardstock, punched the corners and mounted it on red cardstock.  I adhered some enamel dots in the corners before adhering it to a embossed piece of Aquamarine cardstock and attaching the completed panel to a white cardstock base.

The fonts I used were Orniste and Simplicity.  Both can be downloaded for free on DaFont.

Well, that's it for me today!  I will be back a bit later this week with a fun Neat & Tangled Halloween project.  Hope to see you then! Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Seriously Katie! This is sooo cool! LOVE it!

  2. Literally as I am reading your blog - I'm hearing my local news in the background announcing that a local high school won the "roar" contest and Katy Perry will perform at the school next week! I guess I need to catch up a little because I love your use of "roar" on the card - and clearly it would be meaningful to all of those loving the song!


Your thoughts mean so much to me. Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know you stopped by!
