Hello and happy Friday everyone~

Before I get to the detail for today’s post, you need to check out this announcement!!



Woohoo!! Happy 40th Birthday Dan!!, and happy shopping at SNSS Store everyone!


It is time for Sweet ‘N Sassy Digi Challenge (SNSDC50) but our Digi DT girls are also bringing Blog Hop for April Digi Release!! 

While you are hopping around, be sure to leave some your love for each of the blog hop posts. One of the ladies is a mystery blogger and she will be picking one random winner from the comments from her blog post!

The winning prize will be a whole April Digi Release!! (The winner will be announced over the SNS Digi Challenge Blog on Friday, April 27th.)

OK, now for this week’s Digi Challenge… 

The challenge is *Maki It Old* -Use any distress/sponge techniques for your creation to look vintage/antique. Hope you have a time to play along!

You can use any digital stamps. Only requirement is the image has to be digital – but if you have any digital stamps from Sweet ‘N Sassy Stamps, we’d love you to use them! You can visit SNS Digi Challenge Blog for more information about the challenge and find out how to win free digital stamps from SNS. Can’t wait to see your creation!


Here is my card for the challenge.


I used Rhubarb’s Ice Cream for the image. It was colored with Copic markers and layered on the mat of Spellbinders Label 18 Nestabilities. It was dry embossed with SU Sizzix TI square lattice, sponged with ink to look old, and embellished with Want2Scrap label white pearls. The card was designed with the My Mind’s Eye designer paper and the colored cardstock. The background layers were distressed with TH distressing tool. The sentiment from Bear Sentiments Digi set was punched out with a SU circle punches and sponged with ink.  I added the banners of SNSS Pennants and More Dies on a top of the card and tied with the vintage twine. To finish off, I tied the seam binding ribbon.



Here is the blog hop list.
