Much more Gorgeous than Grunge

Posted July 24, 2014 By Shelly Godby

Stampin' Up! 2014-2016 In Colors and Gorgeous GrungeWhen looking at this handmade card, gorgeous will certainly come to mind before, if ever, grunge.  Yet, it was made with the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.


I’d love to claim credit for this Stampin’ Up! card idea.  I did make it.  Copying another artist’s design.  Like yesterday’s Work of Art card, it uses the beautiful new 2014-2016 In Colors.  This Gorgeous Grunge card shows off all five of the In Colors.  Did you know the colors are all designed to coordinate with each other?  This card demonstrates that very well.  Wouldn’t you agree? 


I demonstrated this handmade Gorgeous Grunge at a Stampin’ Up! party.  The guests went crazy for it!  Just like I did when I saw it.  The best part is how doggone easy it is to make!  Pretty and easy. 


Like yesterday’s post, we have again the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches.  Seriously, if you do not yet own both of those punches, they need to be taken off your want list and onto an order now.  Why put yourself through seeing yet another card idea using one or both and wishing you had them?  There’s no need for that when you can so easily order them in my online store

Stampin' Up! Work of Art Stamp SetMet a new stamping friend today.  She got this Stampin’ Up! Work of Art card in a swap.  Isn’t it eye-catching?  Yet so easy to make.


The beautiful colors are from the new 2014-2016 In Colors.  Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist.  At the end of each brushstroke is a punched butterfly.  The top two with the Bitty Butterfly Punch.  The bottom with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.  Each are punched in cardstock of the same color as the ink.
