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 :)

A bit of Halloween

I was sooooooooooooooo excited when I learned what the variation image is for this week at Sweet Pea Stamps.  She is ADORABLE and it is HALLOWEEN!  How could I be happier?  I can't!

This cutie is Priscilla by Conie Fong.  I went outside my box and just colored her however I wanted, them pulled out papers.  I was fortunate and found a great match in some of my Halloween papers.  Then I used some die cuts to complete the card.

I hope you are enjoy all the variety by the DT on the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog while using the same image.  I love seeing what everyone creates.

Get Inky!

Light of Beautitude

Light of Beautitude is by ching chou kuik and available in red rubber from Sweet Pea Stamps.  It has been some time since I colored up one of the earlier releases and I enjoyed doing so.  The artist has her with black hair, but I like her with the auburn as well.  Then background paper is from Carta Bella Hello Again collection.

Just keep swimming....

This fun Lion Fish image is from the SCACD Digital collection. I know that lion fish are not this color in real life.  However, since I am the one with the markers, I pick the colors and I wanted to give green and blue a try.  Liking it!  :)

The fun bottom of the sea plants are actually the Dies by SCACD Fancy Flowers upside down.  I am super happy with how they turned out. You will see this from me again with a mermaid, or dolphin, or other sea creature I am certain! 

Get Inky!
