SCACD New Release Hop

Today Susana Loves Stamps is releasing another new round of these unique, fresh and edgy rubber stamps due to the response we got to the premier MechAnimals stamps.  Along with the new MechAnimals there are some fabulous new Far East and floral inspired rubber stamps being released today as well. They can all be found HERE.

The SCACD Design Team along with some friends and guests are doing a hop and I am so excited to be your first stop showcasing these rubber stamps.

First up is Eye on the Prize.  

I have to admit that I find preying mantis fascinating.  Always have.  The best was the year I found a whole bunch of baby ones in my flower bed.  They were less than 1/2 inch long and still had all the detail of the adults.  Just amazing.  I have only ever seen them in green or brown in my garden, however, this one appeared at my house in blue!  He looks quite dapper don't you think?  Also a bit wise with the saying that accompanies the image.

After coloring him up I used paper from the new Echo Park Reflections pack.  I also added to it with some white ink and the new Tim Holtz stencil Eye Chart

Next I get to share Zen Skull

I realize that you all know that I looooooooooooove this one.  LOVE!  The chinese lantern is actually and accessory stamp that comes with the skull to use for the eyes, to create a background, whatever you can imagine.  Did I tell you I LOVE this?

After stamping and coloring the image, I cut out the eye and nose sockets and fussy cut the lanterns.  I adhered it to black cardstock and trimmed around the image.  I used background paper found in the Bo Bunny Autumn Song paper pack.  Before I adhered it to the background, I used the branches from the large Baobab Tree that is part of today's release and stamped around the edges.  The sentiment is also stamped directly on the paper.  It says "Remember When".  You get the sentiment when you purchase both skulls released today.  What is the other one you ask?  Well, keep hopping and you will see! :)

You next stop on the hop is a new one and I am super excited about it.  We have a new member of the SCACD Design Team.  She is wonderfully talented and I know she has something amazing to share with you.  Please leave her some love and welcome here to our SCACD world!  Your next stop is:

Alaine - our newest DT member!!!!

SCACD Digital is also releasing a fun little gaggle of digital ghoulies that scream fun and sweetness :)  SCACD Digital images are available now for purchase HERE but watch out for some fun from the design team and friends to showcase the newest digital releases in the near future!

Our International friends can get all the new rubber stamps at Quixotic Paperie HERE :)  

Get Inky!
