Gorgeous Grunge Polaroid Birthday Card

One of the things I especially love about crafting is that two people can take the same supplies and turn out completely different cards with totally different styles.  As you may have noticed from my blog, my style tends to be more clean and simple cards that can be created pretty quickly.  That said, Rosemary Bryson is one of the gals in my downline and she can take the same products I have and seem to effortlessly turn them into stunning works of art!  For example, this card:

I love how she combined the stamp sets and punches to create such a unique look!

The hearts were stamped using the Perfect Pennants stamp set and then traced with a white gel pen and then covered in crystal effects.  she also added sequins and glimmer paper dots to add some extra sparkle and shine.  Such a fun idea!

And it is really hard to tell, but she actually inked the entire paper (the polaroid frame) with versamark and embossed it with white embossing paper to give it that thick, shiny feel!  See, that is something I never would have thought to do.  And add some more embossing on the background paper with Gorgeous Grunge and you have a fun paint splatter effect to keep any part of the card from being boring.

If you happen to be in the Pierce County (Tacoma/Bonney Lake/Puyallup), Washington area, you should definitely check out her classes she is starting up with a new meetup group called the Pierce County Paper Crafters.  I know I want to go myself and get to make some of her amazing creations!
