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.

    1. Great cards! I love the yellow with gray. Great color combo!

    2. These are great! The colors really pop on the gray and yellow card. The first card is an excellent masculine card. TFS!

    3. What a duo! Two gorgeous and grungy cards, so different but equally delightful.

    4. Great examples of both a masculine and feminine theme. Both are beautiful!

    5. Beth - you are one talented lady! Love your use of this stamp set. I really struggled and you make it look so easy. I am inspired!

    6. Fabulous darlink! Imagine that said by Zsa Zsa Gabor :) I am enamored with anything yellow and gray lately, so the second card makes my heart sing.

    7. These cards are gorgeous, Beth!

    8. Beautiful cards! I love both of them they are so soft but just really pop!

    9. Beautiful cards! Your collage effect is perfect.

    10. Beautiful cards! I love the striking, bright color you added to each card. Love the yellow and gray.
      Question: what do you photograph up against? Your pictures are so clean. Thx!

    11. Beth, I agree with Mike, you are one talented lady!
      Great backgrounds with the set, and your cards still look clean! Love your style.

    12. beautiful cards; love your creativity!

    13. beautiful cards - love that you made such different styles, but my favorite is the yellow and gray card - so striking

    14. two very creative cards. I had to look twice at the first happy birthday card because the combination of the font on the sentiment and the stripes behind it look like a sheet of music. At least to me - and I really like the effect.

    15. Great jobs showcasing the versatility of this set. I like these a lot!

    16. I love that yellow and gray card and all the spatters!

    17. These are wonderful cards....I have several April birthday cards to create and a few are male so I will use your designs as my inspiration....thank you!

    18. Love both cards! Love gray and yellow together! The brown one would work great for a guy!

    19. Both of your cards are wonderful Beth. That is one fabulous masculine card and I love the yellow and gray paired together - great result!!

    20. Great cards. Love the color combinations and the design on each. So nice to see cards that could be used for guys!

    21. Great way to show that it can do both masculine and feminine cards. I love them both!
