Artistic Etchings and Create a Cupcake

I just wanted to get a quick post on here this morning.  I hope everyone is staying warm.  Before I forget again, I also posted a slide show of my scrapping space.  I have a very very limited space.  In fact it is a big walk in closet in my family room downstairs turned into a scrapping space.  With some good organization anything is possible.  I organize everything in my house.  lol  My first card today is made using the Artistic Etchings stamp set.  This is one of my favorite sets.  I use it alot.  The Newsprint DSP has been sprayed with the Log Cabin Smooch spritz.  That stuff is awesome.  Unlike some of the other shimmer sprays out there, it won't soak and curl your paper when you spray it.  I also sponged it on my embossed cardstock as well.  I love that look and it gives it some added texture.  The colors for this card are Real Espresso and Cherry Cobbler.



For my second card I used the new Create a Cupcake stamp set and matching punch.  This is a great set to have.  The greeting is from the Something to Celebrate hostess set.  The colors used on this card are Real Espresso, Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake. 



Take care!!
