Here’s another card using SU’s “Off the Grid” and “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp sets to create a backdrop for some sweet florals.

A dry embossed brick design adds interest to the background as well.  To get evenly stamped images, always stamp them first before embossing.  Look at the difference between the stem on the left (stamped after embossing.. oops) and the center and right stems.

This card is for three challenges this week.  For the Muse challenge, I was inspired by the embossed background, the three flower image and the touches of purple.  I rarely use purple, but am trying to incorporate it more into my creations.  Click on any of the badges to take you to that challenge!


Happy Crafting!

  10. Hi Susan,
    I rarely do purple on a card, too. You used it so beautifully with the brick embossed background and the Grid- you enabled me to get that stamp! the Summer Sun and Really Rust are two of my favorite colors, and they worked so nicely with the Elegant Eggplant! Love your take on my card this week. TFS!
