Masculine Grunge Rock Birthday

This is the birthday card I made for my brother’s birthday last year.  I just love the new stamp set in the Summer Mini – Grunge Rock – there just isn’t enough time in the day to play with it!

I based the card around the colours Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.  I used the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Square Lattice, through my Big Shot with some Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped that embossed cardstock randomly with the diamonds from Grunge Rock.  And then I used the new Gold Glow Smooch Spritz to finish off the background.


For the centre piece, I used the standard wheel, Music Notes stamped in Crumb Cake, and rolled in randomly across the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the guitar from Grunge Rock in Basic Black and cut it out.  I stuck it on the Music Notes using dimensionals.  For the sentiment, it was stamped in Basic Black on Crumb Cake cardstock, and I sponged the edges in Basic Black ink.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Corey’s Christmas gift card holder

This is a quick gift card holder I made up last night for my Godson’s Christmas present.  Inside there is a JB Hi-Fi voucher which is still in its own folder, so the gift card holder is slightly bigger than a standard gift card size.

I was inspired to make this from the gorgeous Secret Santa gift I received from my Stampin’ Up! buddy, Rachel Jackson.  You can see her gorgeous gift for me here.  I loved the black and red spots together.  And, as this is for a boy, I had to use the super new stamp set, available in the Summer Mini, Grunge Rock.

I used part of the sentiment from the Level 3 Hostess stamp set, Occasional Quotes, and I popped a more masculine background pattern in by using my Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I stuck to the colours Basic Black, Real Red and Very Vanilla, and I added some depth to the gift card holder by sponging Basic Black around the edges, including the Real Red guitar.  I popped a Vintage brad in the corner near the Merry Christmas and snipped a flag end with my paper snips.

I finished off by using my new Gold Glow Smooch Spritz over everything – I love this new effect!

And Corey’s Christmas gift is already in the post – hopefully it will arrive safely in Melbourne tomorrow 🙂
