A RemARKable Tour - Day 2

Good morning and welcome to day 2 of the RemARKable blog tour! I am a little late it getting myself together. I meant to get this up last night before I went to bed but I had such a huge migraine that I couldn't see anything except the pillow for my aching head. I had my headache all day long and tried to control it but it wouldn't do. I ended up going to the baseball game anyway and that wasn't a wise thing to do. The boys did win so they are still alive in this tournament! We play again tonight and if we win we will play in the championship round! It's so exciting!!

So for day 2 of this tour I am showing the Artistic Etchings stamp set. I didn't think that I would like this stamp set but it has really been one that I use a lot! It really is so versatile and I think this card could even be for a guy. The other new product on this card is the Newsprint designer paper. I am in love with this designer paper. There have been so many things that can be done with it besides layering on a card. It looks really neat when you stamp on it, too! And then the red color that you see is Riding Hood Red. Remember that color? It was an In Color a couple of years ago and now Stampin' Up! has added it to their core colors! I am so glad to have it back for good! It is hard to see but I also used Crumb Cake to sponge around the designer paper and the Crumb Cake cardstock. Crumb Cake is now a core color, too! It was formally known as Kraft but now we have a stamp pad and a marker in this color! Yippee!! It has become my favorite color!
