Let's Talk About an Oxymoron

I have to laugh when I hear the name for the stamp set "Gorgeous Grunge". I mean, really, what is gorgeous about being grungy...

Don't get me wrong. I like the stamp set. The splatters are classic and add a fun effect to lots of cards. Kinda like the old splatter tool that Stampin' Up! used to sell (but without the requirement of markers and way less messy).

But then a fellow demo from my group showed me this card. Now I get it- this 'grunge' set really can make some gorgeous stuff :)

Then of course you know me. Anything with butterflies and I'm sold. Love those pretty little creatures :)

I did hear a couple of 'rules' for using this set though:
1. Don't use brown with the streak stamp (Eww skid marks)
2. Don't use red with splatter... your recipient may worry that you bled all over their card (then again if you are making a Halloween card by all means do it on purpose!)

Stick to those rules and you should be making 'gorgeous' cards yourself in no time :)

Be like the snow around here and "flutterby" again soon :)

Pin It!
