DRS Challenge #2 - PIERCING

This week the DRS Designs challenge was paper piercing. I have to admit, this is not something I do very often...or ever for that matter. Even with a template it took 4 tries for me to pierce a straight line along the edge. I am so impressed with people who actually pierce patterns. For my card I used one of the newly release Christmas stamps from DRS Designs. Isn't this Irish Christmas Tree awesome. I stamped the tree in Versamark and then colored it with Pebbles Shimmery chalks. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to all of the shamrocks on the tree and topped it off with a glittery star brad. I thought it turned out just super. Using my
stamp-a-ma-jig I repeatedly stamped my Merry Christmas stamp to create the background. Do you like to pierce? We'd love to see your piercing creations. If you'd like to play along please post a link to your pierced project on today's DRS blog post or use keyword DRSC2 when uploading to the SCS gallery.


Supplies used: All stamps are DRS Designs, SU Garden Green CS, GP white CS, white glitter dots from the Gina K store, Pebbles shimmery chalks, Versamark, paper piercer, MM star brad, misc. ribbon.

I hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Heather,

You need to get the Mat Pack from SU! with the grid w/holes that will give you a straight line every time if you choose. I have like 3 of them. I don't always use it...I think straight lines are overrated...LOL...yeah...that's a story for another day!
