Washi Grunge

Happy Wednesday!  I had a great day yesterday stamping with my stamping ladies.  I hope they had a good time too.  It's always fun to catch up and visit with everyone.  If you're in the Richmond, VA area and would like to join us sometime just give me a shout!

Here is one of the cards we made yesterday.  It's a really fun one and is perfect for those preteen/teen birthdays.  Several ladies commented last night that they needed a card for that age group!  The Gorgeous Grunge set makes quick cards with all the fun splatters and streaks. And if you get some ink smudges on it by accident it's totally OK….it blends right in!

The card base is Calypso Coral and then a layer of Basic Gray.  A piece of Whisper White is stamped with Basic Gray splatters and a Calypso Coral streak.  The Epic Day washi tape is just adhered to the cardstock.  Super easy to reposition too!

The "Happy Birthday" from the Blue Ribbon set is stamped in Basic Gray onto Calypso Coral and then punched out with the large oval punch.  To jazz it up we made chevrons using the hexagon punch!  A very cool different use for that punch!  I love it when you can use a tool for more than one purpose.  The chevrons are adhered to the oval and then a few rhinestones to bring the eye in.  All that is popped with dimensionals.

See…..Easy right?

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
