The Current Featured Stamper Challenge

Well yesterday I posted a Featured Stamper Challenge from Several weeks ago, but today I'm posting the Current Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoaststampers, because I'm actually starting to catch up! The store is scheduled to open on Thursday, so we are all getting less hours now that everything is done. At first I was upset about it, because I really loved the 'big' paychecks, but now I realize its for the best. I have more time now to keep up with the household chores and my crafts. And in a few weeks, (hopefully only a few weeks! LOL!) I'll have a HUGE 2 Acre Perennial Garden to take care of. So I'll be busy enough!
Anyway, on to the card! This week's Featured Stamper is Kelly H. Here is her original card: This is the first time in a long time I think I actually changed my card a lot from the original card. I kept the same basic layout and main image as Kelly's card, but I changed the colors, the background stamps, and I added hemp. The main image is Stampin Up! 'Bronc Buster'. The Background Stamps are Stampin Up! 'Flannel Plaid' and 'Bronco' Wheel. The sentiment is from Penny Black's 'Critter Party'. The stars were made with a Cuttlebug Die. The main image is mounted up on dimensionals. I sponged and distressed all the edges with Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa ink.
Has everyone seen the fun MFT challenge on SCS? They started an 'Idol' challenge today. The contestants will have until March 8th to design a card using only MFT stamps. 12 Finalists will be chosen by the 'judges', but then the 'public' (SCS Members) will vote for the winner. Every week the person with the least amount of votes will be voted off. At the end of 12 weeks, a Finalist will be crowned and win a fabulous prize! Doesn't that sound like fun? What a creative challenge. I'm sure I won't make the top 12, but I'm gonna play along anyway....its too much fun to pass up! Have a great day! Amy


  1. Great masculine card! I like how you tied the twine and layout you used!

  2. I actually like yours better than the original card. I think because you used the red which is so much warmer and great for the Western theme. Good job!

  3. Great job on this card Amy!! I think I'd have trouble with this stamp set ... but you came out with a real WINNER!! AWESOME! Glad to see you'll have more time to craft ... sorry about the reduction in $$$ but we need you too!! LOL!!

  4. Hello Amy! Great job...I really like this card. I have considered this stamp set many times (after all I'm a country girl), but I'm not sure I could use it as beautifully as you have.
