Featured Stamper Valentine

At Splitcoast, there is a challenge each week called Featured Stamper.  You browse through the gallery of the person whose work is featured and choose a card to CASE.  The rules stipulate that you must change at least two things to make the card your own.

Last week's FS was Marisa Ritzen, known as whiterockmama on Splitcoast.  And she is my blogging buddy, so I HAD to play along, even though I am a bit late.

I CASE'd this card of Marisa's, using her layout but changing everything else about it.  I went with the Color Challenge #304 from last week at SCS, too:  red / white / silver or gray.  I've included both silver AND gray, silver being in the form of tinsel glitter by Martha Stewart.  It's a new product for me, and what yummy stuff it is!!  I am going to need it in every color.  ;)

I've used some new-to-me stuff on this card:
  • the embossing folder is from Cuttlebug's "Love Is In The Air" set
  • as mentioned above, the silver tinsel glitter is from Martha Stewart
  • and the nesties, both small circle and scalloped circle, are from Spellbinders
 I'm entering at Stampin' B, where the challenge is to use something old/something new (the old is the stamp set), and also at Mark's Finest Papers, for the use of embossing.

There's another "Marisa" card I did, and I'll be posting that one in a short while.
See you soon!

Happy Stamping,

Colleen
