Sugar Creek Hollow

You may remember this post from last week when I announced that I had been invited to be a guest on the design team for an brand new digital stamp company specializing in vintage/primative stamps called Sugar Creek Hollow. Well, things have developed from there and I have been asked to stay on as a full time design team member . They have also asked me to write a monthly vintage/primative tutorial. That's an awesome opportunity for me and of course I said YES!!!!

Sugar Creek Hollow will open on March 1st, but you can already go to the website and sign up to be a follower and perhaps win a digi. There are also some freebies on the site to get you started. While you are there, check out the design team and their awesome samples. Tracy, the owner and artist, created a special quilt set for us to use this week for the DT introductions. We have all made a card with the set. My day to be introduced is Friday so be sure to stop by Sugar Creek Hollow and see the card I made with the quilt set.

I created this card as a Country Valentine with two digi's that are already for sale on the site. Click the New Releases butto and you will see a number of images that are already up for sale, long with beautiful samples from the design team. This is a pretty simple card - card stock is Basic Black, Ruby Red and Old Olive. The DSP is digital papers which I digitally paper pieced. Tools: A Martha punch and a Spellbinder die, some ribbon and black lace and a tiny metal frame from SU's Silver Hodge Podge Hardware.

Hope you'll all stop by Sugar Creek Hollow and get acquainted!!
