SNSS: Grunge Elements

Good morning!

Today is Day 3 for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' December release blog hops!  Today we are featuring the fun new Grunge Elements stamp set!


For my first card today, I stamped a rainbow of ink swatches with one of the images in the set using Stampin Up's inks.  I love the coverage I get with their new ink formulation with clear stamps.  I didn't add much else to the card besides stitching and a white satin ribbon so the colors would really pop against the white and black card stocks.

I'm sorry my main photo of my second card seems to be a bit blurry. I didn't realize that until it was too late to retake it for my blog post today... sorry about that!  At least my second photo seems to be a bit better focused.

I used another ink spotch image and another sentiment from the set for this second card along with the Kindness stamp set and coordinating die images, just like I did on one of yesterday's card.  Once again, you see I was drawn to turquoise and white for my card - what can I tell you, I LOVE this color right now in the bleak, cold wintery weather we are having right now in the upper midwest!  Some washi tape, ruffle ribbon and caribbean solid baker's twine finished off my monochromatic card.

Here's more information about today's featured stamp set:

  • Includes 9 images and 3 sentiments
  • Word "art" measures approximately 1.5" x .75"
