Happy Birthday Card using Urban Grunge Stamps with SinCity Stamps

Today I would love to share with you SinCity Urban Grunge Stamp Set...I fell in love with as soon as I saw them and knew exactly what I wanted to do for my first project. I thought I would make a birthday card for a friend that has one coming up and since she isn't a girly girl I thought this would be perfect.
I started with a piece of corrugated box flap and tore some the front paper off of it to expose the corrugate part of the flap.
I dry brushed the top with a bit of white paint making sure to leave some of the corrugated exposed.
I stamped the script stamp onto of my dry paint using black in, inked the edges of the kraft card base, pattern paper and stamped piece with brown ink. I then placed the corrugated piece on top of my pattern paper.
I used another stamped from the Urban Grunge set to stamp two background on to yellow card stock. Once they were stamped I cut out two leaves.
I misted the leaves with water, scrunched them up and they bent and folded my leaves until I got the look I wanted. Allow them to dry completely and ink the sided and tops before placing them on your card front.
I stamped a few of  the small flowers to the top of my scrap yellow card stock before I stamped "Happy Birthday" from the Clownin' Around Set of stamps from SinCity Stamps. I then placed it on a small piece of brown card stock and layered it at the bottom of my card front after I had my lace, flower and leaves in place. I hope you try making a not so "girly girl" cards for your friends sometime and try out the background stamps at SinCity Stamps Store. Hugs Pammejo

  1. Oh, Oh, Oh...gots to love me a little grunge!!! Bravo, Miss Pam!

  2. I love this "not so girly girl" card! I might even give this a try myself! TFS!

  3. Pam, I really like this one. Great expression with the "cardboard." I have a birthday card request for a young man who himself is an artist and like "different." The only other thing I have to go on is that his fav rock band is Pink Floyd. I have been thinking how I might incorporate a "wall." I think I will play with your base idea@! Thanks for the inspiration.
