Sugar Creek Hollow Preview Week Finale

Good Morning Friends....
Welcome to the final day of Sugar Creek Hollow's Preview Week. Throughout the week, members of the Design Team have been introduced and shared some of their projects with you. We were provided with a three piece digital stamp set by Tracy Vinson, the owner of the company, and challenged to come up with projects that included all three images. You HAVE to be sure to hop through everyone's blog to see the variety of beautiful cards which have been created by this talented group of women.

Digital stamping is new for me and I am thankful that Tracy has provided me with this opportunity to delve into this brand new world. I have had a lot of fun learning how to manipulate images and have come to appreciate the versatility that comes with
that manipulation.

The first card I have shown here, is actually the third card I created with this set. I couldn't seem to make only one card with this set. I used "My Digital Studio" paper to fill in some of the squares on the quilt block and then paper pieced the rest. Because Sugar Creek Hollow offers primitive and vintage designs, I have been learning about that style of "art". I believe I have a long way to go to master it, but I'm having a blast learning along the way.

For my second card, I paper pieced all of the quilt pieces and overlaid the quilt with a piece of velum that I printed one of the images onto. The flower is coloured in with marker and I applied microbeads to the centre.

It's wonderful being part of this design team. I am learning about digital stamps, vintage styles and I have the privilege of working with a group of Christian women who
are extremely talented and wonderfully supportive.

The other two team members being introduced today are

Nancy - Southern Yankee Crafter
and
Kelly - Sandcastle Stamper our March Guest Designer.

Be sure to hop on over to their sites to meet them.

I hope you have a stupendous Saturday - Thanks for dropping by
