Saturday with Plumrose Lane!!
It is another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and we are having a special HALLOWEEN WITH A TWIST challenge this week so make sure you read the challenge post carefully.
We are welcoming Plumrose Lane as a new sponsor this week and for this challenge our sponsor is providing all of you with a wonderful freebie that you must use to make your vintage, shabby chic or primitive challenge entry. You will love this because the freebie is a collage sheet of fabulous Halloween images along with an instant card and envelope
To get your freebie, just go to the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog, click on the link and download the freebie (in a .zip file format). Please note that the freebie will only be available for the length of the challenge and after that will be available at the Plumrose Lane Etsy shop.
And as if providing this freebie isn't generous enough, Plumrose Lane is also giving one random winner a $10 gift certificate toward the purchase of any item from the Plumrose Lane Etsy shop. The random winner will also receive a Sugar Creek Hollow winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose a Card of the Week and that creator will receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.
I am so excited about this week and couldn't wait to share with all of you!! Sharon who is the owner for Plumrose Lane has become a dear friend of mine and she is the one that designed my beautiful blog header, background and labels. I love her work and her generous spirit. You will finds lots of free goodies on her blog and the digital collage sheets she creates are so beautiful, and there are lots of things for your blog, etsy shop,etc. I have used several of these in some of my past cards. She has created this Halloween set specifically for us here at Sugar Creek Hollow and I was so thrilled to show it all to you, in fact I have done two different cards to showcase her beautiful images.
The first one above was created using Sharon's image sheet which I printed and then hand cut the images that I wanted to use. I also incorporated part of one of the cards (the orange one) and yes I said one as she has two different cards and envelopes in your free download. My papers are from Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows. I layered these with half of the card and a punched black paper made with the new doubled sided punch by SU. I used some purple seam binding and a piece of baker's twine in orange and white to create my bow using the tail to hang my tags which are knotted and pop dotted to add some dimension. Don't you love the cat in the hat with the jack-o-lantern. You will find so many lovely images on the sheet to choose from. Here's a peek at the inside.
Now for my second card....I have used the green card and envelope. Love the elongated tile effect. I used a distressed brad through the top flower and then put a foam dot to give it some height.
Love the Fleur de lis dies with this. The key, butterfly and bird cage are all part of this sheet, and I didn't use half of the images.
For the inside, I cut one of the labels and stamped a sentiment in it. Here is a look at it and the back of the envelope.
Now guys, I hope you will support us at Sugar Creek Hollow this week and give some love to Sharon at Plumrose Lane. Be sure and go by SCH and get the link to this free digital Halloween set this week while it is free and let's see what you come up with. I will be looking for you!!
Thanks for stopping in!!
