Hey Scrappyboy Fans, have you seen the latest release of the Cute Girls Goth Girl stamp set?! This set is perfect for anyone who loves the darker side of life and wants to add a bit of edge to their paper crafting projects. Inspired by a popular cult classic cartoon turned TV show and dark comedy, this stamp set is the perfect way to pay homage to your favorite anti-hero, while creating a enchanting and unique card.
One theme that we can all relate to is a broken heart. Whether it’s a recent break-up or a lingering heartache, we have all experienced the pain of love lost. This is where the Cute Girls Goth Girl stamp set comes in. With this set, you can create a project that both acknowledges your pain and celebrates your strength. I chose to make a memorydex card. There are several styles of memorydex dies available at Scrappyboy.com. I layered over top of the memorydex card base. I also pulled in some of the coordinating cardstock, too. I stay within a 4 in x 4 in margin so I can use in my carousel style memorydex holder.
To start, choose a dark colored card stock as your base, whether it is a greeting card or a memorydex, as I did here. This can be black, dark purple, or even burgundy. Use the stamp set to create a scene using images from the Cute Girls Goth Girl set and adhere to the center of the memorydex card. I used the older man and woman (couple) and stamped on Hammermill 100# paper with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored up using COPIC markers. For the characters in this set, don’t forget that you can customize their hair, outfits, and accessories to fit whatever scene you want to create. It’s a versatile set and can also be colored up to be bright and glamorous; however, if you are going for a dark theme, don’t forget to accentuate the characters’ eyes with some eyeliner and little dark lipstick to really give your card a gothic vibe.
Now, to address the broken heart theme in my card, I used a sentiment from the set that reads “If someone breaks your heart, I’ll nail gun theirs.” The sentiment perfectly captures the pain of a break-up, while also celebrating the idea of self-care and moving on with the help of loved ones.
Finally, I added some embellishments to the memorydex card to really make it pop and tie things together, by cutting a heart from the Memorydex Essentials Die Set (pictured above) in half and then putting it back together on the dex card. I then added several small silver flat-backed gems on top to emulate nail gun studs. Whatever you choose, make it personal and make it yours. Think outside of the box and mix and match from what you already have in your stash. If you want to purchase coordinating products in this release, there are lots of options.
