Artistic Etchings

A Day off yesterday from blogging!!! how dare I do that I hear you say...... well we all deserve a day off once in a while.  Actually, to be honest, I have been thinking of posting a card or project to my blog only once a week, I will of course let you know of any news or promotions that Stampin' Up! or me have to offer as and when that happens.  If any customers are reading this then please contact me for more details of classes or hosting a Stampin' Up! party.

The new samples I have been working on are coming along nicely and thought I would tempt you all with this one from the Artistic Etchings stamp set.  I have always preferred wood mount stamps but have to tell you that this set is available now in clear mount! at last I hear some of you say well Stampin' Up! have listened to lots of you shouting WE WANT CLEAR STAMPS well the 2010 - 2011 catalogue has a selection of clear mount stamps but I know I will be sticking to the wood as that is my preference but I am going to give the clear ones a go and am patiently waiting for my order to come with a set or two in clear so you never know I may be converted........

Items used in this project are Artistic Etchings, Newspaper print dsp, spiral punch, Early espresso, crumb cake, always artichoke, very vanilla card and early espresso ink ooooooooo I could just drink a cuppa coffee but I don't normally drink it but the names of our new colours are all about drinks and yummy things to eat!!!

................Until next crafty......


  1. Oh yes, that is a gorgeous card. Love the distressed look with that stamp set, just beautifull.

  2. This set is at the top of my list. I really love how you've used it!!!

  3. Oh wow - this is beautiful, Peg!

  4. This card is amazingly classy... love the vintage feel to it. That blue in the last layer is awesome.

    I don't know how so many bloggers post a card "everyday". I am trying to post a Halloween project every day for the month of October, I am failing LOL
