CASual Song Inspiration

This week's challenge at CASual Friday's is to make a card inspired by a song - I decided to take one of my husband's favourite bands Kraftwerk for my inspiration and their song is called "The Robots".

I used the super cute set designed by Torico from There She Goes stamps - I have all her robot sets they are just wonderful.  These 2 are best friend robots - I stamped them onto grey card, shaded with pencils and then added some googly eyes before fussy cutting them out.  The stamps also come with a smaller solid block matching stamp which I stamped repeatedly to make a background before adding one of the sentiments from the set.

When looking for this set, I pulled out another one of theirs so decided to make another card for this challenge and also this week's challenge at There She Goes which is to use metal embellishments.  This card is inspired by the Christmas song "Little Donkey".

I don't think its particularly clear from the photograph but I have decoupaged the "butt" on the donkey, with and extra layer for the tail and the fluffy hair, stamped on kraft card and shaded again with pencils.  I added a strip of metal embossed with stars and also die cut some large stars from the same metal - the stars fit the theme at TSG and also echo the sentiment. 


  1. Both cards are adorable! Love the googly eyes on the robots! Thanks for playing along with is for the TSG challenge!
