grunge gears

Hello! Today I am sharing two cards featuring a fun, new stencil from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps June release that is great for creating masculine cards and projects.

To begin, I made a set of four cards by creating the backgrounds on a full-size sheet of cardstock, 8 1/2″ x 11″. Then I cut it into quarters and layered on a sentiment. Super easy and fun!

First, I randomly inked over the stencil tone-on-tone with kraft colored ink and cardstock.

Then I stamped various images over top in more neutral tones.

Here are the sets I used. After cutting the background into quarters, I die cut each piece before adhering to my card base, but you can skip that step.

I wanted to add a little more color to my second card design, so I pulled out a piece of nice green cardstock and stenciled with a green ink. A few images were stamped in green, and I stamped the pocket watch onto kraft cardstock and layered it on. The sentiment was stamped with black ink.

Have a great day!
