One of the stamp sets I got at my Stampin Up part was the Just Jawing. My daughter had seen this one and loved it and I thought it might be a good one for teen cards *okie being the honest injun she is adds the following...* and to be honest I love this stamp set also!

I am trying to get away from my standard card layout and use more solid cardstock on my cards. I did stamp the rust cardstock with the Stampin Up craft white ink with the stars stamp that came with the set.

I stamped the skull twice with Stampin Up basic brown and then cut them out. I cut off the bones for the top layer and pop dotted it on the bottom layer *okie is so dimensional she should be a 3D movie!*. I also pop dotted the blue bow with Stampin Up Bordering Blue. I shaded around the skull and bones using the blender pen and Bordering Blue ink. I added some orange Stampendous holographic stickers to the eyes.

The You Rock is also stamped with Bordering Blue.

The punched edge is with the new Stampin Up border punch available in their Sale-a-Brations catalog...which I actually got for free!! WOOHOO!! *okie so loves free*

Now do ya see the little gold dots on the patterned paper? Well those are iron on studs! I used my Hot Marks tool with the mini-flow tip to apply them on the card. I think they will be my new addiction! I got a wheel of different shapes and sizes of iron on studs at Walmart for $11.
