Bon Jour!

WOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO SCACD is open and has lots and lots and lots of new stuff!!!!  First though, I want to share what I created with Bon Jour Eyes and some of the items you can find at SCACD.

I adore both collections in this release, The Eyes of Adventure and Fables Collection.  There isn't a single image I don't just love!

After I colored up Bon Jour Eyes I paired her with some paper from the MME Lucky in Love paper - I know! - Valentine's Day paper!!!  Make sure you check out all the new papers SCACD has gotten in!

After that I paired the image with the Dies by SCACD Natures Tapestry Fan that matches the fan in the image's hand!  I have been just dieing to do this!  FUN!!!  I felt it needed a bit of 'pop'.  I had been playing with the Art Anthology Gelate and so grabbed it in Splash and covered the die cut for some shimmer.  One of the things that makes the Art Anthology Gelate so great is that it can be dimensional.  However, nothing says it has to be.

Can you see that shimmer?  Now imagine it about 10 times more because that is how it really looks!  Fabulous and all because I was too lazy to get up and grab something else.

Now, don't forget that there are tons of new items available at SCACD.  Be certain you do some holiday shopping for things you really want to open.  Something special under the tree just for YOU!

Loved coloring this image, Toucan by ching chou kuik for Sweet Pea Stamps.  I really love the images on this entire sheet.  You can see how I used the butterfly image "here" if you would like.  The colors for the Toucan were so cheerful and worked well with this Basic Grey paper.

I have paired Mystery by Anna Marine with some autumn colored paper from Bo Bunny and Dies by SCACD Vintage Fountain die cut.  I am quite pleased with the end result.  What would you create with this image?

Who Me?

This cute image is called Who Me and is part of the Exclusive to SCACD Elisabeth Bell Sampler #8 release.   I have to admit this particular image didn't really call to me when I first saw it.  However, the minute I actually stamped it out and started to look for papers and colors is came to life and I loved creating with it.  I will use it again and again.  I think this is just a super versatile image for both cards for girls, especially pre-teens, and good friends.  It just works for so many thoughts and occasions.

I paired the image with papers from the Lilybee Victoria Park collection.  The vines at the top are the Dies by SCACD Fancy Flower and Key corner.  I created matching black pearls using the Viva Decor Pearl Pen in black.

Arctic Princess

 When the latest release at SCACD, Mythical Reflections, came out last week, I couldn't wait to play with this image, Arctic Princess. All of the images in this release are amazing, but this mermaid and her seahorse just called to me!  They were begging to be blinged up!!!
 After stamping in Momento Tuxedo Black Ink, I colored up the image.  I used the Copic Glitter pen in gold on the reins.  Viva Decor Glitter liner in hologram on her tail, the ice crystals, and the shell on her crown and on the seahorse.  The seahorse main and fin on her tail are covered in Stickles.  I used Liquid Pearls for the dimension on the pearls at the top of her crown.

One of the most fun parts of creating this card though was making the ocean scene. I used Silk Acrylic Glaze in Oyster and French Lilac.  The Oyster was applied using a small brush and the Crafter's Workshop Flames Stencil.  The French Lilac was applied using a sponge and the Crafter's Workshop Branches Reversed stencil. 
The corner die cuts on the top are from the Dies by SCACD collection and are one of two gorgeous dies you receive in the Classic Corners.  Make sure you check out the SCACD Store Blog for other creations from the DT with the Mythical Reflections release and the Elisabeth Bell Sampler #8 release.

Songbird #7 - Could It Be Magic
Loves Rubber Stamps #25 - Anything Goes
Through the CraftRoom Door #43 - Anything Goes

In The Wind

I had this lovely image In The Wind by ching-chou kuik for Sweet Pea Stamps in my stack of images that had been stamped but not colored. When I was looking through them, it jumped out at me and I couldn't believe I hadn't done anything with it yet. It is just so pretty and yet simple in its beauty.  The dreamy look on her face is fabulous.
I absolutely had to add Stickles, and a lot of them to this card as well.  She need to shimmer and shine as much as possible.  The Sun and Moon Statement Corner die was required as well.  I have never seen a die and image go together more perfectly than these two.
I know exactly where her new home is going to be.  Who do you know that needs a card sent to them today?  Wouldn't this stunning image make the perfect one to send?  The image is even on sale right now!

This is SCACD's last 2 stamp releases of the year! We're bringing you cuteness from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD with 4 new adorable stamps in the Sampler #8 Collection. We also have Susana Loves Stamps new collection- Mythical Reflections which brings you 4 more mythical stamps to help inspire you and help you create!  Be sure to check out all the details on the SCACD store blog and hop along with the SCACD DT as we showcase these amazing new stamps!

As you are hopping, you will have come from Elaine's blog, if not please go to the SCACD store blog to start at the beginning.

The first image I want to share is Dawn's Fairy from Mythical Reflections.  This entire set just takes my breath away!

I used paper from the Bazzill Timeless collection for the background.  The corners are Dies by SCACD Garden Corners.  The vines/leaves on the side of the image are the cut out from the center of the Classic Timepiece

Next up is Golden Girl from the Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Sampler #8 collection.  She is such a cutie.

I wanted the blossoms to be pink because they reminded me of cherry blossoms. I like the matching of the cuffs on the sleeves with the design on the parasol.  Sometimes it really is about the details.  Speaking of which, the elements on the sides are the Dies by SCACD Ornate Hinge.  I am finding this to be such a versatile die.  More than I ever would have imagined.  I just slightly inked the white cardstock with a light blue so they would show against the white background.

For our International Friends, you can purchase these at Quixotic Paperie.

The next stop on the hop is Chris's blog.  I know she has some fabulous creations to share.  Be sure and leave her some love while hopping by.
