Gorgeous Grunge

Welcome to my blog this weekend.  Whilst my husband has been away in Saudi Arabia on business for the past 3 weeks I have been very busy crafting away in my little craftroom playing with all my NEW  Stampin' Up! goodies which I  pre-ordered from the Spring/Summer catalogue and Sale-a-bration.   The new mini catalogue is being released on January 28th, the same day as Sale-a-bration starts, which is Stampin' Up!'s best promotion of the year. For every £45 you spend you will be able to choose a free products! 

Here are the cards we made in the classes a couple of weeks ago...

 I apologise for the quality of the photos, I kept forgetting to photograph them in daylight.

 I have been wanting the 'Gorgeous Grunge' stamp set for a while and was delighted when it was one of the stamps we were given at Convention.  As we have been concentrating on Christmas since then it never got inked up until a couple of weeks ago.   It is an absolutely fabulous stamp set and I will be using it on a regular basis for now on. There are 5 background stamps in the set with various splodges and stripes

I have been asked to make more cards for men, I, like many others find mens cards very hard to create. I think it is because you can't add any pretty embellishments like butterflies and flowers

I chose Bermuda Bay, smoky slate and black colour combination for my masculine card along with the retired stamp set 'need for speed'. The black lines under the car are again from 'gorgeous grunge'

That's all for now, I am just off to get things ready for tomorrow's class
