Starburst Grunge

We have a new challenge for you today over at Inkspirational Challenges and this time it’s a…….

I’ve chosen to use the colours from the photo in my card today.

For my layout I’ve used the sketch from Sketch File.

And this is what I came up with.

I’ve teamed the Starburst Sayings stamp set with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for my card.

The colours are: Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Old Olive, Real Red & Bermuda Bay inkpads along with some Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight cardstock. The cardstock has been cut with the Tasteful Trims die.

I hope you like my card. I’d love for you to leave me a comment and let me know.

Don’t forget to stop by Inkspirational, if you haven’t already, and see what the rest of the DT came up with for this challenge.

And one for the Boys….

I’m back today sharing the set of cards for my August Stamp-A-Stacks that are more suitable for the men in our lives.

That’s not to say they aren’t suitable for the ladies but they definitely don’t say ‘girls’ like the Flower Shop set I showed you yesterday.

For these cards I’ve used the new ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ & ‘Hello, Lovely’ Stamp sets along with ‘Bring On The Cake’ stamp set which has carried over.

The Gorgeous Grunge stamp set made these cards quite quick to whip up.

A little bit of added ribbon or twine, a punch or two and your done.

Supplies: (All Stampin’ Up!)
Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Hello, Lovely, Bring on the Cake
Card: Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Very Vanilla
Ink: Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Decorative Label & Extra Large Oval Punches, Midnight Muse 3/8” Stitched Satin Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive.

You’re the Best

We’ve had a lovely week of sunny weather here in Sydney this past week of school holidays, although we haven’t been able to do much as I have a sick child. Hubby’s just gone out with 2 of the girls for a while, another of my girls is at the movies with a friend, so that just leaves me at home with the sick child. She’s quite content watching her favourite shows and playing on the computer so I’m busy crafting.

I’ve just put together a quick card for two challenges.

First up is Dynamic Duos with their colour challenge DD#60.

I’ve put this together with the Sketch challenge CTS #35 from CAS(E) this Sketch.

For my card I’ve used 2 new stamp sets, Gorgeous Grunge and Hello, Lovely.

I have coloured the sentiment stamp using Stampin’ Write Markers and then this has been mounted to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Gorgeous Grunge set is great for adding some background and it makes for such a quick card.

I hope you like what I have created.

Stamp sets: Gorgeous Grunge, Hello Lovely
Card: Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White
Ink: Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit Inkpads & Markers
Accessories: Basic Black 1/8” Taffeta Ribbon.
