Artistic Etchings

If you didn't join us for the New Catalog Launch Party, you missed out on some fun! We made a couple projects with new stamps and colors. I'll share the first one here.

This card uses the Artistic Etchings stamp set, new colors Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso, new DSP and new ribbon. I'm really loving the vintage look of some of the items in the new catalog.

The Eiffel Tower is popped up with Dimensionals.

Stamps: Artistic Etchings; Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Newsprint DSP; Ink: Cherry Cobbler Early Espresso, Whisper White Craft; Accessories: Sponge, Craft knife, Early Espresso ribbon, Topnote die, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

And a housekeeping item - if you are interested in joining Stamp Club, let me know right away. Hostess month assignments are being decided right now. Don't delay and miss out!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a pretty card! I love Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso together. What did you use to cut out the center pieces of the Eiffel tower? Whatever it was, you did a great job!

Craft knife and cutting mat were used for cutting the center of the tower. Make sure you do your craft knife cutting before you trim around your stamped image!

Gorgeous card Heidi. I'm definitely CASEing this one, girl! Thanks for the cutting tip too. I didn't think about it until you said it and then I was like ... oh yeah, sure, that makes total sense. THanks for saving me from a painful cutting experience! Love this card!

I love this card and want the set, but my sister says I can't have it....haha -- I'll surprise her one day and will get it. Every card I've seen using it is so pretty.
