A Gorgeous Grunge Thank You Card

Today's card was cased at "Scrappin' and Stampin'.  I have found some fun cards there.  Check out Becky's  blog if you have some time.

I liked this card because it reminded me of those melted crayon pictures I've seen on the net.  I want to make one of them someday too!  I will probably gather the crayons a week or so after school starts.  That's when the stores start clearancing them out.  I buy my craft scissors at that time too.  I go through a lot of them with beading.  The FireLine just wrecks scissors and I avoid using my good scissors on that stuff!  

Ok, onto this fun card.  I started out with the Daffodil Delight in the center.  Then I used Garden Green, Pacific Point and Eggplant Envy.  Then on the other side of the yellow I used Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and then I finished off that end with Eggplant Envy.  After I stamped the lines I cut my cardstock.  And get this, I didn't even use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to do this!!!  It was easy enough to line up the image.  I buy the clear block stamp sets so I can see through the block to know where the image will go.

The words are from the new"Another Thank You" Photopolymer stamp set.  I LOVE them! They are totally clear and you can see EXACTLY where they are going to stamp.  And they stick extremely well to the clear blocks.  You can even scrub hard on your stamp scrubber and they don't come off.  I hope Stampin' Up! comes out with more of these.  And they are a lot cheaper than the other stamp sets!!!  I LOVE that too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
