First the sad news - Tracy Vinson, owner of Sugar Creek Hollow, has decided to close the Sugar Creek Hollow store effective midnight tonight and she has put a little note for her followers on the store site, which you can read by clicking here. The good news is that she'll be keeping the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog open and we'll be coming back next week with some exciting changes there that we think our loyal followers will really like. So stay tuned!
Now on to this week's challenge... It's pretty simple this week - Embossing is the challenge, either wet or dry. So create a card using embossing and enter our challenge for a chance to win a Sugar Creek Hollow digi stamp - you'll be one of the last to get these wonderful images.
Here you can see the dry embossing I did on my card base. I did this after stamping the flourishes on the Crumb Cake cardstock. You can also see the distressing on the card using Tea Dye, Shabby Shutters and Craft Whisper White inks.
The Sugar Creek Hollow image is from the Flower of the Month series. It was printed on Crumb Cake cardstock and die cut with the Nesties Labels #17 dies. I used Copic markers to color the leaves and stems and Prismacolor pencils for the white flowers, leaf highlights and some shadowing. I like the effect of using both mediums. The white die cut is from MFT Stamps Die-Namics and the gorgeous ribbon is Stampin Up.
Now please visit the Sugar Creek Hollow blog to see the design team creations this week. Please leave a little love for my team-mates on their blogs too!
