I have two cards to share with you today so let’s get started!  The first one features:



City Buildings Cling Background
Seriously Amazing Sentiments

I was definitely encouraging my inner Tim Holtz on this one.  I tend to be a clean and crisp designer but knew that I wanted the City Buildings to be more grungy teamed up with the ultra awesome Seriously Amazing Sentiments.  Both have been stamped with Distress Oxide Black Soot.  I used a sheet of paper from the Pinkfresh Studio Boys Fort collection, which was already distressed looking.  I’m going to squirrel this one away for my boy who heads back to NYC this week.

Next up is a card that features the Kind, Fierce and Brave Mini set:

I teamed up the sentiment with The Ton’s Flamingo Print cling background.  I love how this one turned out.  I’ve been pretty smitten with the pale pink + hot pink color combo.  The sentiment has been heat embossed in gold on a vellum heart.

That’s it for me, I can’t wait to see how Mayline Jung was inspired…she’s your next blog!

In case you get lost along the way, here’s today’s hop listing:

  1. Wow, the cityscape card is sooooo beautiful! Love the distressed look on this one. Pure perfection! I love those pink flamingos also!

  2. Both of your cards are amazing. I love the vellum sentiment heart over the flamingo background… so pretty. And you aced the grunge look on your first card. Creating such diverse looks certainly signifies channeling your inner talents! TFS.

  3. Way to change it up… the building stamp looks so good grunged up and distressed. Awesome masculine card, Amy.

  4. The City Buildings stamp is really awesome! I love
    how big it is. And your card using it is 'amazing'. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Those flamingos are my fave, tho, being a Florida girl.

  5. Those flamingos are awesome! I really like your cards, completely different color schemes that show off your versatility!

  6. LOVE that city background! So cool and love that you grunged it up… and of course those flamingos with that awesome sentiment..

  8. Oooh! I hadn't notices the 'yea, I'm talking to you' sentiment before… Love it paired with your sweet card! I also love the smoggy look of your city!!

  9. Two very different looks on these cards, but you are rockin' both of them! Love the grunge look, but also love the pretty pink flamingoes. Great job!
