Introducing Sylvia Zet for SCACD!!!

Today is the day we've been anticipating at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design...it's the Sylvia Zet for SCACD Stamps Release Day!!!  We have all fallen in love with Sylvia's sweet style, and I know you will too. This release features eight new adorable stamps that are exclusively available starting today at SCACD or at Quixotic Paperie if you reside in the UK. They will, of course be available for individual sale, but if you just have to have them all (and I think you will!!), you can purchase them in discounted sets!!

To celebrate this gorgeous new release, we are having blog hop today!! Not only will you see projects by the SCACD and Quixotic Paperie design team, but we also have several talented guests joining in the fun. The hop begins with the lovely and very talented  Elaine Hughes, so make sure to start there so as not to miss out on any of the blogs along the way. The complete hop list can be found at the SCACD store blog. So go grab yourself a cup of coffee or tea and get comfy as we introduce you to the Adventures of Loli and Shellie, Poppy and the rest of their friends!

(If you've been following along the hop, you should have arrived here after visiting with one of our lovely guests, Iris Wiechmann. If not, just hop on over to Elaine's to start at the beginning.)

My card today features the adorable "Loli and Shellie". I have completely fallen in love with Sylvia's new designs for SCACD Stamps. They are an absolute joy to colour. I paired Loli and Shellie up with some paper from Basic Grey "Olivia". The image was cut with Spellbinders Labels 8 and the little corner embellishments were cut with Spellbinders Parisian Accents. The pearls were made with a Viva Decor Pen (Ice White).


Loli and Shellie were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with Copic markers. The grass was done in layers of little feather strokes, applied in a "flicking" motion. I always add my darkest greens where the shadows would fall...I also add a little grey just to make the shadows a little more dynamic. I masked the image and sponged around it with Memento Summer Sky.


Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59  Dress: BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78, C5, R81, R83, R85, R89  Shellie: E50, E13, E25, E29, E59, YG00, G20, G21, B91, B93, B95, B97  Grass: YG00, G14, G21, YG63, YG67, G99, C5, C7

All the gorgeous new Sylvia Zet stamps for SCACD are now available for purchase!! You will only find them at SCACD or at Quixotic Paperie for our crafty friends in the UK. So when you are finished today's hop, make sure to place your order ASAP as I'm sure these beautiful stamps will be flying off the shelves!

It is now my pleasure to send you off to visit with yet another talented guest joining in today's release day blog hop...Judy Laing!! I know she has something gorgeous to share with you featuring yet another new exclusive Sylvia Zet for SCACD stamp!

Thank you so much for joining us today. Have fun hopping, and don't forget to indulge in a little crafty shopping when you're done!!

Blessings,

Melanie
