HSS Color Splash Challenge #23

I am super excited about today's post. I was able to break out TWO new items from the BRAND NEW 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog. Last year my FAVORITE stamp set was the Medallion background stamp, well my FAVORITE from this new catalog is the Artistic Etchings set. Ever since visiting Paris a few years ago, I LOVE anything with the Eiffle Tower and this set doesn't disappoint. 

I started with a Crumb Cake base. I embossed the tower image with Craft Chocolate Chip ink and clear embossing powder on a piece of Whisper White card stock. This was adhered to a piece of Rose Red card stock and embellished with some Antique Brass brads. The next step was an idea I got from Mary Fish-she's so creative! Then I layered that, with the help of Stampin' Dimensionals, on top of a piece of Old Olive card stock that I had first, punched one side with the Scallop Border punch and then ran through the Big Shot using my NEW Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I was so excited to finally get this as it has been on back order for a while. Don't hesitate if you LOVE it, order it now!

The finishing touches were to add a piece of Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon, which unfortunately has been retired. I LOVE that ribbon color, but the new Early Espresso satin ribbon is just as gorgeous! The "Amour" sentiment, also from the Artistic Etchings set, was also embossed with the Chocolate Chip craft ink and clear embossing powder. I then punched it out with the 1-3/8"x 5/8" Oval Punch. This was adhered to the 1-3/4"x 7/8" Oval punched from Rose Red card stock and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Don"t forget I'm offering the NEW 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog for 1/2 off! Want a copy? Simply e-mail me at Shannon@stampinsentiments.com and I'll get it to you. $5 and I'll cover the postage. US only, please.
