Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #20

Hey Friends! It's Thursday again! WOW these weeks just fly by! We have another fun challenge for you at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge! I hope you'll join us! I chose to use the Stampin' Up! Artistic Etchings Stamp Set with a black and pink theme! Here's what I came up with!
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • One of my favorite ways to add texture to my projects is the NEW Stampin' Up! Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder (120175) on page 214 of the Idea Book & Catalog! It's so elegant an pretty! Hint: Use this in your Big Shot on Tab 1
  • Isn't the Artistic Etchings stamp set too cool!?! It's one of my favorites in the Catalog! I first stamped the Eifel Tower in Basic Gray ink. Then I stamped the crown in Pink Pirouette ink and trimmed it out with my Paper Snips! Oh yes, I cut out the crown! The jewel in the center of the crown is from the Basic Rhinestone Jewels on page 188. These beauties are self-adhesive and totally perfect! They come in three different sizes so they'll work for any project.
  • The 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon is awesome! It's my 'go to' ribbon! I use it ALL the time! It comes in 13 colors and I used Basic Black on my card today! For $5.95 a spool - it's a great deal and you get 10 yards per spool!
