I am so excited to say that I am the July GD at the Stamplorations Challenge :) I am a huge fan of Shery's stamps and stencils and I am always amazed at the fabulous creations the DT produce with them so this is a real honour....
The theme for July is Stamps and Distressing so lots of scope for you there! I made two cards. First up is a design using Trendy Leaves, a sentiment from Grateful Beyond Words and the fabulous Mixed Media Grunge set. This is a lot more stamping than I usually do on a card but I love the texture on these leaf stamps and stamping them in a combination of distress inks gives the leafy frame more interest. Those grunge stamps are quite addictive and it was hard to stop stamping on this card :)
For my next card I was inspired by cardboard packaging and stamped the Hashtag Authentic sentiments on a kraft base which I distressed around the edges to give a more ragged look. The grunge set came in useful here too!
I hope you like my distressed creations. The DT will have lots more inspiration to get you started too. Thank you for having me as your GD :)
Thanks for stopping by!
