Stamp Review Crew: Gorgeous Grunge Edition

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop! We are show casing the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. We are so excited to share with you our grunge-inspired creations.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Cindy Beach #2. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you can see all of the amazing creations.  

  • When I think of grunge, I think of very little effort on appearance, which inspired this masculine card.

  • I combined Gorgeous Grunge with another "grungy" stamp set set; Clockworks and Perfectly Penned stamp set for the sentiment.

  • For a feminine twist, use bright colors, ribbon and rhinestones.This sentiment is from the Make A Wish stamp set.
