Sugar Creek Hollow Christmas Release Blog Hop


Good morning and thank you for joining us here at Sugar Creek Hollow for our Christmas Blog Hop.  We are going to play the "Secret word" game today.  You will Need to collect a letter at each blog and theN post your aNswer at the last stop.

We will be awardiNg a $25.00 gift certificate to oNe lucky wiNNer!

I am shariNg with you today two of our New Christmas Digi Stamps -
"Flourish Shabby Sleigh" aNd "Believe."



Stamps:  Flourish Shabby Sleigh, Believe (Both from Sugar Creek Hollow), Clear Stamps Flourish
Paper: Basic Black, INk Jet TraNspareNcy, DP from stash
INk: INk Jet PriNter, White Craft INk
Accessories: Black orgaNza ribboN, ribboN slide (Hodge Podge Hardware-SU!), snowflake coNfetti


I waNted to try priNting my digis to a traNspareNcy. I used Photoshope ElemeNts to create my digi layout (combiNing two oN the same layout).  


I fiNished off my card with some orgaNza ribboN aNd a ribboN slide.



I liked the idea of makiNg a shaker card with the traNspareNcy. I mouNted with mouNting tape aNd used Basic Black to create a frame for the image. For the shaker, I used sNowflake coNfetti. I fiNished off the frame with flourish stamps and white craft iNk.

If you have figured out my secret letter, leave me a comment and move on to Megan's Blog  She has the next letter for you.  If you have arrived at my blog first, you will need to start at the beginning to get all of your letters in order.  Here is the order of our blog hop.

What a great idea using the snowflakes behind the transparency! This sleigh is pretty in all the different colors but I think the black and white is my favorite. Very pretty!

Julie, I Never would have coNsidered using a traNspareNcy for this faNcy sleigh! EveryoNe kNows a feNce Needs garlaNd to adorN it. The orgaNza ribboN adds a graNd fiNish.
