The Stamp Review Crew - Gorgeous Grunge


Welcome to another blog hop with the Stamp Review Crew. Twice a month, we take turns showing you projects and ideas using a specific stamp set. Earlier this month we shared Hello, Lovely and this week we are sharing one of my favorite sets - Gorgeous Grunge. This fun set has everything you need to create cool backgrounds and/or add texture to your projects. I hope you enjoy what you see today!

My son was invited to a birthday party this weekend and told me about it at the last minute. This greeting card is the first one I made, but it ended up a little too young for our needs. I think 15 year old males must be the HARDEST people for whom to create cards! Oh well, with all of the young kids in our family it will get put to use sooner or later.


Two stamps from our featured set were used on the card: the stripes and the dots on the lower portion of the card.  You can see a glimpse of a third stamp on the coordinating envelope; it looks like I spilled orange paint on the corner!

I just received a fresh batch of our Tag a Bag Gift Bags. These little bags are the best for gift giving - already printed with the chevron design and easy to decorate! I used the stamp set to create a little tag similar in style to the card. A little Baker's Twine, Simply Pressed Clay elements and Candy Dots and this little goody bag is ready to be a door prize at my next class!



Well, that's it for me today… Back to trying to create for teenage boys. Wish me luck! Your next stop can be accessed with the buttons below. Enjoy!
