A blog hop wouldn’t be complete without an inspiration! Each designer has made a card based on one theme from the class. Here’s a little number from myself, inspired by Graphic and Grunge!


I used a plethora of stamps on this one. I tweaked the Quinn’s ABC’s stamp set from Lawn Fawn a bit by adding depth and definition to the letters with black pen. I stamped Unity Stamps Painted Punchinella in Memento Luxe Dandelion, the triangle pattern from MFT Mod Borders and the bike from Hero Arts Joy Ride in Memento Luxe Teal Zeal, and the sentiment & Altenew Faux Veneers stars in Versafine Onyx Black.


I finished the card with some mist paint splats, an odd strip or two of washi tape, and a little die cut from Studio Calico which I secured with a staple.
I’m entering this card in the Hip On Handwriting Challenge in the Moxie Fab World 🙂

  2. Another great grunge card made by you. I just signed up for the class. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. This card is seriously so fun! One a boy or man could totally appreciate. And I love how it contrasts so much from the feminine nature of your WPlus9 peek.

  4. GR8 card, so many male friends ride bikes and I never once thought about a card featuring a bike! I’ve already signed up, so many cards and so many different ideas. Fantastic!

  5. Great card! Would be great also for an older (20’s – +) son! Love the Mother’s day card!!! Thanks for sharing both.

  6. Chupa, your card is extraordinary. Thanks for the inspiration. Literally running to make a graduation card for one of our good friends’ son. Graphic and grunge here we go. Will have to improvise without RC stamps. Cheers!

  7. Darn it now I’ve found some more things that need to go on the want list! The class wasn’t enough…now there’s more! FUN card!!
