I am so honored and excited to be participating in today’s Top 10 Winners Hop! I won a spot in the Top Ten from Kylie’s International Blog Highlight. I thank everyone who voted for my card in that hop. I was feeling very creative for this card and I hope you like it. I can’t wait to see everyone’s projects!
I used a number of stamp sets for this card. I really like to mix and match! Country Home is where you will find the milk can and flowers. The “Thank You” sentiment and the script pattern are from Very Versailles. The remainder of the stamps are from: Gathered Together, Comfort & Hope and Forever Fern. Stampin’ Up!® ink colors include: Misty Moonlight, Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, and Early Espresso.
I have been really enjoying the versatility you get with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. From the outside in on the milk can, I blended Dark Smoky Slate, Light Smokey Slate and Light Gray Granite. The flower arrangement has Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade and Calypso Coral.
I continued some of the design from the front to the inside of the card. The tiles from Country Home are stamped in Misty Moonlight. The grid pattern from Comfort & Hope is in Cinnamon Cider. The Forever Fern leaves are in Just Jade. The little splatter pattern stamped in Early Espresso (most are Stamped Off) is also from Forever Fern.
Techniques used to make this card include: Masking, Sponging, and Stamping Off.
Thank you so much for visiting today! You are at Theresa McEntee/Theresa’s Treasures. Have a very creative day!
There are so many beautiful stamp sets in the new 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog! There is a style for everyone. I love to make cards with a grunge style. The Comfort and Hope and the Positive Thoughts stamp sets are a perfect combination for this style.
This card is designed with elements from both of the stamp sets. The colors are: Misty Moonlight, Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider. These are 3 of the new 2020-2022 In Colors. The In Colors are a set of 5 colors that are only available for 2 years. Every year, one set retires and one set debuts. The other 2 In Colors for the next 2 years are Magenta Madness and Bumble Bee.
Measurements: Cinnamon Cider Card Stock (CS): 11 x 4 1/4 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches; Very Vanilla CS: two 5 1/4 x 4 inches and one 4 x 2 inches.
Using the Cinnamon Cider ink, stamp the cross hatched image from Comfort And Hope onto both 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS pieces. The image near the edge is at full strength. Without applying any more ink, stamp again just above the full strength image. On the bottom piece, stamp a third time without adding any ink. This is know as the Stamping Off Technique. I use this technique a lot when stamping in the grunge style.
On the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla panel for the outside of the card, add the sentiment “Hugs Prayers Love” in Cinnamon Cider ink. The little design has been Stamped Off onto the scratch paper before stamping on the card. Both of these images are in the Positive Thoughts stamp set.
The leaf branch from the Positive Thoughts stamp set is Stamped Off each time in Just Jade ink.
The roll of twine from the Positive Thoughts stamp set is stamped at full strength in the middle, then Stamped Off two times.
The large branch of leaves is Stamped Off once on scrap paper, then on to the inside panel.
Using the Misty Moonlight ink, stamp the butterfly from the Positive Thoughts stamp set once at full strength on the inside panel. Stamp three full strength images on the 4 x 2 inch Very Vanilla CS.
Fussy cut the three butterflies, or use the butterfly die on a die cutting machine. Now use the Bone Folder to curve the wings of each butterfly.
Apply one half of a Stampin’ Dimensional to the middle of the back of each butterfly.
Use your Bone Folder to fold the 11 x 4 1/4 inch Cinnamon Cider CS at the 5 1/2 inch score line. Adhere the outside panel onto the front of the card base, and then the inside panel inside.
I found it easier to space the butterflies evenly if I adhered the top butterfly near the sentiment first, then the butterfly in the bottom corner, and finally the middle butterfly.
Now for the Bling! What is grunge without some sparkle?!
I placed the Champagne Basic Rhinestones with the Take Your Pick tool.
I applied Wink of Stella to the butterflies. See how sparkly they are now! Don’t forget to add Wink of Stella to the butterfly on the inside panel.
And Viola! You have a sparkly grunge card! I really like the sentiment “Hugs Prayers Love” because it is very versatile.
I am so grateful you came by today! This card is just so fun to make! I hope you give the grunge style a try.
