Grunge Hello

Good Sunday morning, Friends! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! We finally made it to Denver with no problems. We checked into our hotel and made our way to the field. When we got there it was lightning so we all had to wait about 45 minutes before we could even get out of our cars. But then the sky seemed to clear a bit and the game got underway. We played really, really good! But... the score didn't go our way - dang! And what was worse, the weather started getting bad about halftime. The lightning showed back up and then the rain started with about 5 minutes left. I ran back to the car and my husband and son followed after the rain. Boy were they soaked!!! So we have everything sitting out in the hotel room drying for today's game. Seems like it did dry out overnight - thank goodness! So we will see what today brings. Hopefully nice sunny weather and a WIN!!

Today's card was another experiment with the Gorgeous Grunge set. I love this one, too! I have been working so much with fall colors lately that I wanted something different so I came up with Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Round the bottom corners with the 1" circle punch
  • Layer of Whisper White with bottom corners rounded with the 1" circle punch
  • On layer stamp the lines image from Gorgeous Grunge repeatedly using Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, and Crisp Cantaloupe inks
  • Adhere stamped panel to card and add a strip of Coastal Cabana to hide the "seam"
  • Stamp greeting from Four You in Strawberry Slush
  • Punch a flower from Crisp Cantaloupe using the Blossom punch, sponge with Crisp Cantaloupe ink and pop up onto card
  • Stamp flower image from Flower Shop using Crisp Cantaloupe ink onto Whisper White, punch out with Pansy punch and pop up onto card
  • Punch flower center from Strawberry Slush using Boho Blossoms punch and adhere to flower center
  • Tie a bow with white baker's twine and adhere to flower center
  • Add large rhinestone to bow
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Keep checking the CCMC site to see if you're a winner!
