Artistic Etchings from Stampin' Up!

Good Morning My Stamping Friends, Last week I wanted to play with my Artistic Etchings stamp set from Stampin' Up! and was browsing the web looking for some sample cards to use as ideas and inspiration. Well, I found a card that I loved so much I had to make a version of it. It was just what I was looking for; clean, simple and beautiful. 

I decided to post the card today and when I went looking for it online to give the original card maker credit, I found out it was made by my friend Robin Merriman. How funny is that! What a coincidence. She inspires me even when I don't know that its her card!! You can find her original card by clicking here and my card is below.

The base of the card is chocolate chip and the layer is confetti cream. I used the Artistic Etchings stamp set and the following ink colors: chocolate chip, daffodil delight, pear pizzazz, marina mist (I stamped off first) and pretty in pink. I also wrapped one strip of 1/8th inch taffeta ribbon (daffodil delight) around the front layer of the card. It turned out exactly how I saw it in my mind's eye (and that is rare!) and I love it. Hope you do to. Leave a comment and let me know.

Don't forget that Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration promotion is ending at the end of March. If you want to order a few things and get FREE stamps just call me or e-mail me and let me know. Or, if you prefer to order on your own 24/7 just visit my website at

If you want to host a private stamping event with you and your friends I'd be happy to help you out with that too. You can even request certain stamp sets or techniques. I want to teach you what you want to learn.

Have a great day.
