Gorgeous Grunge and Washi Tape

Hello Friends and Stampers! I'm hoping you all had a happy and safe 4th of July. Our little celebration was at home, where I like it to be and where I can make sure Oreo is safely tucked in under my bed. After dinner, we spent the evening in front of the chiminea my kids gave me for Mother's Day. Did I share a picture of that? Perhaps not. You'll see it as you scroll down later.

Ah, yes... There is a card in this story somewhere! The card pictured today was one that was made by my monthly stamping group earlier this week. We made projects featuring new catalog products. I wanted one of the projects to be a little more modern, so this one was created using Epic Day DSP and Washi Tape, the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, and Candy Buttons.  The sentiment is from a recent Paper Pumpkin kit. This was such a simple card but I love how it came out! 

So here's our little chiminea. As you can see, the men in the family like to keep the fire burning brightly! It's fun for roasting marshmallows, too.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Gorgeous Grunge, Hello to You (from Paper Pumpkin)
Card Stock: Very Vanilla
Designer Series Paper: Epic Day This and That
Ink Pads: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Basic Gray
Accessories: Epic Day Washi Tape, Linen Thread, Neutrals Candy Dots, Very Vintage Designer Buttons

Thanks for visiting!

Ooooh, lovely! I just got this Grunge set and haven't opened it yet...can't wait! I might have to CASE this!
I noticed today my chimerea has a yellow jacket's nest in we put up Cassidy's pool right next to it, so I think we need to get rid of the nest first, but I doubt the fire would be good for the pool either!!!!
