Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Going Grunge with Art Gallery Dies

For Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa Class project, there was the opportunity for the attendees to get their grunge on.

I recently made this project and thought that it would be a good design to recreate for class.

My colour combination is Pool Party, Misty Moonlight and Basic White.

The layer is set at an angle to add to the grunge feel.

For the Basic White piece, this is first embossed using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I’ve then used a Sponge Dauber to ink over patches of it.

Using an emery board, I’ve taken this to the edges to distress them, and also over the top of some of the texture. It’s then set at an angle.

Floral Gallery Dies provide the sentiment that is stuck onto the circles.

This central piece is stuck on top of a swoosh of Pool Party Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.

Finally, some coordinating In Color Square Gems are added.

Attendees could grunge as much or little as they liked. When I design a grunge project, there is always the opportunity for those who don’t like the style to keep theirs clean and simple.

Postage Stamp and Textures In Good Taste

This masculine style project combines an Embossing Folder, some DSP and a Punch.

Using Crumb Cake and Early Espresso, I chose to use Very Vanilla as I wanted a more grungey-type design. See my video on how I choose between Basic White and Very Vanilla.

The background is given texture using the Painted Textures 3D Embossing Folder. I’ve then added some extra colour using Crumb Cake and a Sponge Dauber.

In Good Taste DSP, currently on Special Offer, provides the shapes cut out using the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.

These are layered down the centre of the embossed piece with a length of Faux Suede Trim across the project.

A sentiment from the Many Messages Stamp Set is stamped and again cut out with the punch. I chose to ink up the stamp with an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.

Finally, the sentiment is raised up on Dimensionals.

This project has only used a small piece of DSP, so you could make a LOT of cards from a pack of DSP using this design. Grab a pack of DSP while it is discounted, for even more value for money.
