Sugar Creek Hollow Color Challenge
Welcome to this week's Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow where our challenge for this week is a color one using blue, cream and brown keeping in mind that we are a vintage, retro, primitive style challenge blog.
One random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.
Since my card last week was so girly, I decided to create a masculine card for this week. I always remember my Grandfather with his pocket watch and my Dad was never without a knife in his pocket, so this retired set "Papa's Pocket" from Stampin' Up seemed just the thing to honor them both. I just did a repeat of the knife stamp , then tore the edges, distressed and sponged with distress inks. I used a SU impression plate to create some texture on my brown card stock....the tag was created using Spellbinders standard tag die. I off stamped the pocket watch and coins, then stamping the sentiment direct to the paper.
I love stamping an envelope to match my cards, I think it just gives a special touch to your cards. I don't always do this anymore, but decided this one deserved it.
I want to thank all of you that joined us last week, we really appreciate seeing your wonderful work and hope you will play again this week.
Be sure and stop by Sugar Creek Hollow and see what my teammates have to show you, you will not be disappointed. Thanks for the visit!
Rick and I are away for a couple of days and I am hoping this posted! Be by to see you soon. Hugs.....
