"The Peekers Collection 2" Is Now Available For Purchase!!

Good morning and welcome to release day at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design!! All week long, we've been sharing sneak peeks of the newest exclusive stamp collection at SCACD..."The Peekers Collection 2" by artist Elisabeth Bell! These sweet little girls will quickly make their way into your heart...and onto your papercrafting projects! I know the entire design team has had so much fun creating with these stamps. They are now available for purchase only at SCACD and at Quixotic Paperie if you live in the UK.

If you have been following along with the sneak peeks this week, you will have seen "Secret Garden Peeker", "Mama's Purse Peeker", "Bubble Bath Peeker", "Partners In Peeking" and "Sweet Cheeks Peeker". There are still two more young ladies in this stamp collection that are being introduced today..."What's In The Box Peeker" and "All Peeked Out Peeker".

We are celebrating the release of The Peekers Collection 2 with a day of inspiration over at the SCACD store blog Follow Your Heart. There you will find a list of all the designers who have created some gorgeous projects for your viewing pleasure with these new stamps. This will also be the first chance for you to see those two Peekers who did not make an appearance during the sneak peeks! Now, this is not an official blog hop so you can feel free to visit the designers in any order you wish...but, to make sure you don't miss out on any projects I recommended following the order posted at Follow Your Heart. If you've been visiting the designers in that order, you should have arrived her after visiting with Dianne. :)

For my card today, I used "Secret Garden Peeker". I just love Elisabeth's sweet and innocent. I love the way the hair curls into a cute little ringlet at the bottom of her ponytail...and what do you think she is spying behind that fence?? The paper is Basic Grey Hopscotch. The bow was tied with my Bow Easy. I topped it off with a jewelry spacer and a little self-adhesive pearl. I coloured the pearl with my B95 marker to coordinate with my paper and image. A little machine stitching and Walnut Stain Distress Ink around the paper edges finishes it off.

"Secret Garden Peeker" was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copic markers.

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair: E50, YR31, Y23, E31, E33, E37, E59 Dress: B00, B32, B37, B91, B93, B95, C5, R22 Fence: E25, E30, E31, E33, E50, E59, E99 Grass: YG00, YG03, YG67, G14, G21, G99, C5, C9
