Valentine Grunge with Tag

Combining challenges can be a challenge in itself!  Colors and sketches, sketches and colors, I really love how it stretches me to use all the elements in each challenge.  For this card I used the sketch from The Paper Players Sketch Challenge and the colors from ColourQ Colour Challenge.  It was fun and I love how the card stock layer is actually a sleeve for the little tag.

Stamp Sets:  Gorgeous Grunge, Teeny Tiny Wishes (Stampin' Up!), Heart Balloons (My Favorite Things); Inks:  Primrose Petals, Blushing Bride (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Crumb Cake, Primrose Petals, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Accessories & Tools:  Chalk Talk Framelits, Whisper White Baker's Twine (Stampin' Up!), Rhinestones

To check out both challenges just click on the images below.  There is still time for you to play along.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. Love the way you've stamped the background with the grunge stamp--so clever! Great use of both challenges....thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!

  2. I agree Marsha - sometimes it's harder combining challenges but you've done both perfectly. Love how you've used the Gorgeous Grunge set...looks great as a background! Thanks for playing along at Colour Q this week!

  3. So sweet, Marsha! Love the narrow tag you created with your fun greeting. The simplicity of the card would make it a great masculine valentine. Thanks for sharing your creation with us at The Paper Player!
