Clean & Simple

Hello again,

My that week sure passes fast - I'm back today with the next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week Julie has chosen the theme of


Now I never used to be any good at this because my usual style seems to be to include as much as I can (step away from the card, Jan!) So, having the chance to hone my skills with a more simple look has been fun. Here's what I made for my DT inspiration using some of my Stampin Up stamps ...

I love this set - it's called 'Gorgeous Grunge' and is so versatile, but especially good for the male themed cards.

I used three distress inks - Antique Linen, Scattered Staw and Faded Jeans and just went for it! I'm quite happy with the result too. The greeting is also Stampin Up and is from 'Sassy Salutations' (another go to set). I added a little yellow button at the end of the greeting and three yellow adhesive crystals for extra effect.

I hope you will come and play along with us this week.
Hugz, Jan xx


  1. Oh this is fabulous! A perfect CAS card. Beautifully done! x

  2. I think you are right about the stamp set and your card is colourful without being overly so. Just the thing for a CAS card, fab. :)

  3. A gorgeous card and colours x

  4. Beautiful card, great stamping. I'd never have thought of using those stamps on a CAS card, so I've learned something new

  5. Who says CAS can't be grungy too - fab card x
