Gorgeous Grunge Thinking of You – June Card Class (5 of 5)

Gorgeous Grunge Thinking of You

TGIF everyone!  It’s going to nice here is Portland weather wise this weekend.  Yay!  I went with my hubby (Derek) yesterday to see Maleficent.  It is a MUST SEE!  It is a great back story to the traditional “Sleeping Beauty”.  I also met with my my upline and a fellow demonstrator about a wonderful fund raising event we will be having in October – Stamp Out Cancer.  Be on the look out for more details in a few weeks.

Today’s masculine-ish post is the fifth card we made in June’s Card Class.  I love the subtle yet striking color combination……..So Saffron, Pacific Point, Baked Brown Sugar and Gold Embossing.  I had to sneak in a bit of shine somewhere.  Lol!  The base starts with So Saffron.  The widest band is Whisper White which I stamped with the random dots from Gorgeous Grunge in VersaMark and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.  [TIP:  Remember to tap and rub cardstock with your embossing buddy to keep unwanted embossing powder from sticking to your cardstock.]  The narrower strip is Pacific Point.  The pennants were created with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch in Pacific Point, So Saffron and Baked Brown Sugar.  They were applied with a Stampin’ Dimensional starting at the bottom then slightly overlapping the tip to the one below it.  The “rope” is Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker’s Twine with a knot tied at each end and adhered with a small dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue as each end as well and at each pennant point in between. The sentiment frame was created by stamping the diagonal stripe from Gorgeous Grunge with VersaMark onto Whisper White and heat embossing with Gold embossing powder then punching with the Modern Label punch.  This was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, the sentiment itself is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and was stamped in Pacific Point ink onto Whisper White and punched with the Word Window punch.  A masculine shout out the Marsha Reed for her wonderful design inspiration!  I did simplified it slightly and added the Gold embossing.  Hello!!!!! I had to add shine somewhere.  [TIP:  If you want to simplify you can also stamp the embossed dots and sentiment diagonal stripes in Baked Brown Sugar.]  I hope you have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by.
