Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Grunge and Hello There for SB96

I love Wednesday's. They spell everything I love about being a creative person. I get to create, I get to share it with my lovely blog readers, and I also get to connect with lovely Stampin' Up! demonstrator friends around the world. Yes Wednesday's make me very happy.  

Today's card for the Stamping and Blogging Design Team is one of my favourite colour combinations, with some grunge, texture and embossing thrown in.

My base card is Bermuda Bay, and I have used the Dictionary background stamp inked up with Bermuda Bay ink and applied the card on top of the stamp with uneven pressure to get a distressed background effect. The black and white paper banner was then attached and I embossed some of the splotches from the Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Grunge stamp set over the paper and base card using gold embossing powder.

Finally I added some additional texture with the Gold Sequin Trim, Calypso Coral Pom Pom trim and a couple of hearts from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. You can view all the products I have used on this project using the links at the bottom of the post.

Wow Claire!! I love this color combination too! Fantastic card, great layering and design!

How funny! So may of us used the same set. Love this Claire and welcome to the "Great Minds Think Alike Club"!! lol

Love, Love, Love this card it's Gorgeous (pun intended) and all those extra bits of embellishment add so much interest to the card, absolutely lovely!

Great colours Claire, love all those different 'bits' that make a happy collage.

WOWSERS, this is a absolute WOW factor card Claire.
You really make me feel the fun.
Maybe it's those little pom poms or the touch of gold.
Or maybe it is just a combination of all the little details all together.
Anyway I love it!

Gorgeous card Claire, love everything about it.

This is a "rockin card" So many elements and lots of fun. Hugs from Shelagh.
