Hello there!! 
Jenn here sharing my grungy greetings cards using some amazing Blank Page Muse Stamps!

Stamps Used:


Other Supplies Used:
Ink Sprays
Cardstock
Adhesive runner
Glue
Dew Drops
Foam adhesives
Clear embossing powder
Black embossing powder
Embossing ink
Black Archival ink
Distress Ink
Stencil
Black Card bases 5 X 6.5

  • Start by stamping the heart and dragonfly onto cardstock using black archival ink pad.
  • Coat ink with clear embossing powder, shake off excess and heat set with heat gun.
  • Color the embossed images using inks or watercolors, let dry and cut them out. Set aside and move onto the backgrounds.
  • On the plain cardstock,  apply the ink sprays in desired colors with a stencil. Be sure to dry in between colors.


  • Cut two 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" pieces from this. Apply adhesive to the back and place on your card fronts.


  • Add the stamped cut-outs using foam adhesive squares as shown.


  • Use a sentiment stencil to trace out the words using embossing ink pen. Coat with black embossing powder, shake off excess, and set with heat tool. To add that splattered grungy look, add splatters of embossing ink before adding black embossing powder. Cut out and adhere to card fronts using adhesive foams.


  • For the inside of the cards, cut two 5.5" X 4.25" pieces of plain cardstock in light color such as ivory. Use the same heart and dragonfly stamps and black archival ink pad to stamp onto plain cardstock. Only stamp half of the stamp on bottom edge.


  • Use adhesive on the back and adhere to the inside.



  • Add some dew drops or other bling in your stash randomly to the front and there you go! 
Simple but grungy good cards!!
