Bonsoir, mes amis! I have had tons of fun with a new stamp set called Artistic Etchings. 

Firstly, a scrapbook layout featuring some photos I took from the Eiffel Tower which were just perfect for this set.

The background design is a patchwork of four papers - two from the Newsprint DSP set and two I created myself with stamps, En Francais and Artisitic Etchings.

Then I got to thinking about how Paris is supposed to be the most romantic city in the world and how the Eiffel Tower would look in the sunset ... and that's how my next project evolved.

I used so saffron, tangerine tango and riding hood red in my brayering and ran a gathering thread down the middle of my taffeta ribbon to get this effect. Tres chic! Makes me think of the flouncy petticoats of the Folies Bergere!

For my next card I thought more laterally and looked at the monument as a unique and amazing piece of architecture, then acknowledged that AMAZING and UNIQUE are words we like to use to describe the special people in our lives too. So that's the theme of my card and the reason for the sentiment, which comes from Life Definitions. The layout and colours were inspired by a card by Jan Tink.

Next is a masculine birthday card I've dubbed "King for a day", LOL! Again, I have used some of the Newsprint DSP but also used the stamps in Artistic Etchings to create my own background paper. This time I've teamed them up with a stamp from Perfect Punches, a new set that has 6 stamps which all fit SU punches. Pacific Point, Very Vanilla and Basic Black are the colours used.

Now a much more Clean and Simple style and I've used Rich Razzleberry with So Saffron and Whisper White. The sentiment comes from the Friendly Words jumbo wheel and the embossed background is the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder - isn't it divine? It suits this vintage style set really well.

And last but not least, I was inspired by an idea from "stamperdog" at SCS to use the background stamps to become Christmas baubles. The top part (that pesky metal part that always breaks on our baubles!) is created from the crown stamp! I've used Elegant Eggplant and Certainly Celery with gold embossing and must offer my apologies for using a retiring stamp (weathered background), but nothing else suited the card so well! The sentiment is from Occasional Greetings.

Well, that's all from me. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed my offerings this evening. Now you are off to see the creative delights of Kirrily, so click here and enjoy the rest of the tour.

Au revoir!
