ARTISTIC ETCHINGS

Hellooooooo

I know long time no see!!! Just when I thought I was on top of things my computer decided it wasn't going to play and consequently gave up altogether.  I have only just got it back from the "puter" doctor. 
Anyway enough of that I have been busy with workshops and making samples, even if I couldn't post them so here is the first one.
This card I have made with my new all time favourite stamp set from the New Stampin' Up! Catalogue - Artistic Etchings which I have in the new unmounted version which I am liking a lot even though I am a wooden stamp kinda girl at heart, these new unmounted ones really are going to save space which means ......... yes we can have more stash for our crafting - result don't you think!! :-() lol.

Using new colours Early Espresso for the main card I folded this into an Easel Style and layered Baja Breeze and one of the new In Colours Pear Pizzazz. I stamped the Baja Breeze panel in same colour Ink with two of the stamps making one fade right into the background by using second stamping, not sure if this is showing up in the picture very well.
I also got to play and get inky fingers which I love to do, using the new DSPapers Newsprint I stamped and inked the panel with Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz (new In Colour) using the round medallion type stamp in Artistic Etchings set, also with a finger dauber I smudged Crumb Cake over the DSP and around the torn edges which gave the result I was after - a distressed piece of old newspaper.  Using same stamp from set, I also did same on separate Newsprint DSP and punched out with Scalloped Circle and 1/2" circle Punch and scrunched them up and layered with a New Flower Brad in the centre.  The Eiffel Tower is then stamped onto the panel in Basic Black. The ribbon is the gorgeous new Pear Pizzazz 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon.

For the panel at the base of the card I used same as for main card, stamping congratulations (from Stamp Set Noteably Ornate - I will be back to post card I made with this set later!) onto whisper white in Baja Breeze and rubbing crumb cake all over to grunge it up before punching out with the new Modern Label Extra Large punch, layered this onto pear pizzazz and cut around leaving a small margin, it is such an easy shape to cut around to get this effect.
