Artistic Amour–Mojo Monday Challenge 178

It has been awhile since I last posted and even longer since I participated in a challenge.  But I have so much new stuff from Stampin’ Up! that I wanted to showcase and a terrific challenge is the best way.  Mojo Monday produces fantastic creations from the most talented artists in cyberworld and I always enjoy studying new techniques.

Today I chose to go vintage using Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous Love Letter Designer Series Paper, a little strip from Newsprint and the beautiful Artistic Etchings stamp set.  I embedded two of the paper circles on another piece of patterned paper using the Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder.  This is such an easy and WOW technique.  Then I cut a strip of designer paper from Newsprint about 1” X 12” and scored at 1/4 all the way around to make my ruffle circle.  I ruffled the pretty Basic Black satin ribbon using sticky strip and making little ruffles all the way down.  The sentiment is stamped on Very Vanilla then run through the crimper.  I just love the look.

Thanks for taking time to look.  We are on the way to our son’s home today to spend a few days with our brand new granddaughter, Isabella.  She is 2-1/2 months old and I haven’t seen her in 5 weeks due to illness- that’s half her life!  So, you probably know how excited I am!!!
