Featured Stamper and Try a New Technique

Hello! Well my hubby got back last night, so all is right with the world again : ) I made my first card yesterday for the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS but Blogger wouldn't let me upload it for some reason. So here it is today! This week's featured stamper is Kelly a.k.a. Schirmcat. I LOVE her gallery for her wonderful country style. I am definitely a country girl at heart and am usually attacted to all things worn and distressed : ) I chose to CASE this card of hers. I love the 3 strips of dp that she used so I pulled out some of my favorite dp~Bella Rose from SU. I think this Starry Snowman from Whipper Snapper has a country feel to him, so I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored him with Copics, and sponged around him with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink. I pulled out my Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch, added the button and the sentiment from Verve's Ornamental Christmas that I punched out with my SU Word Window Punch. Pretty CAS, eh?
My next card is for today's Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS to make a faux grid card. I stamped the tree with Chocolate Chip and the leaves with Old Olive. I used a ruler and pencil to lightly make the grid pattern, then filled it in with a black marker making sure not to go over the image. I added little flowers that I punched out of Pink Pirouette with a CarlaCraft punch and added little pearls to the centers. The sentiment is from SU Great Friend and I punched that out with SU Oval Punches. The corners were punched with a Nankong corner punch. That's about it!
