Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow

Happy Saturday! Today is the start to another sensational challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow.  This week we're challenging you to create your own designer paper using stamps or other unique treatments.  No purchased scrapbook or designer papers - just what you can create on your own.  And of course, create a card in a vintage or shabby chic style.

My card was created with background paper that I created by stamping on kraft-color cardstock using Papertrey Ink's "Damask Designs" stamps.  I also created the paper with the swirls using PTI's "Fancy Flourishes" stamps.

The main image panel features a Hero Arts image called "Bird Collage" also stamped in black ink on kraft cardstock that was tattered and then distressed with tea dye and old paper distress inks.  A few pearls, a fabulous stripe ribbon and it's complete. 

Won't you join us this week in the "create your own designer paper" challenge?  You'll have fun giving it a try.  Stop on by the Sugar Creek Hollow blog and see the design team creations for a little inspiration - you'll be glad you did!

Thanks for stopping by!

Absolutely gorgeous. I don't have any rubber stamps but after looking at this, I am tempted to start buying them. I love the colour scheme and all the wonderful layers.
