Welcome to Sugar Creek Hollow and another Sensational Saturday. This week we are challenging you to make SHAPED CARDS. Now everyone will tell you a square or a rectangle is a shape and they are correct but we want you to stretch your creativity and to try making cards in lots of other shapes. We want to remind you that we are a vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired challenge blog so lets see your shaped cards in one of those styles. And one other reminder - our challenges go live on Saturday morning at 8:00 am EST so please do not link to a post prior to that day and time.
This week we have a wonderful sponsor, "priscillastyles" Store. The random winner will receive $10 worth of digis of their choice from "priscillastyles" Store and a Sugar Creek Hollow winner's badge to display on their blog.
The Design Team will also choose a Card of the Week and that creator will receive a badge to display on her blog and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.
The Design Team has created some wonderful cards for your inspiration using images from "priscillastyles" Store. I have used 'Potting Flowers", which can be found in the store here. As soon as I saw which image I
would be using I knew that for my "shape" I would make a flower pot!
To make the flowers for the pot I enlarged the flowers from the original image
and trimmed around them to make them fit the shape I wanted on top of the pot.
The leaves were made with Spellbinders and BossKuts dies. I inked the edges and bent
some of them up to give them dimension.
Here's are some close ups of the beautiful stamp.
I colored the image with Copic markers and then added some crystals
and stickles for some sparkle.
Priscilla has many other beautiful and fun images so be sure to check out her store!
Also, be sure to check out the Sugar Creek Hollow blog to see what the other designers
created and to enter your own shaped, vintage card.
