"The Peekers" Blog Hop with SCACD!

Hi friends! By now I'm sure you've heard the news that a brand new crop of "Peekers" by Elizabeth Bell for SCACD was released a couple of days ago! Susana is also re-introducing some of the gorgeous Guardian Angels. Available for purchase now are the:



We wanted to celebrate the release of these fabulous stamps with a fun blog hop full of inspiration from the entire SCACD design team as well as a few special guests. To make sure you don't miss any stops on the hop, just start over at the SCACD Store Blog where you will find the complete list of links. If you've been following along, you will have arrived here after visiting with the lovely Dianne

I have two cards to share with you today. The first features the sweet "Puppy Peeker" from the Sweet Home Peekers. The papers are all from the fantastic 6x6 pad from Simple Stories "Fabulous". I absolutely love this paper pad. It has several papers with different tags and labels, some of which include sentiments like the "BFF" label on my card. Others are perfect for journaling your own message. (it would also be great for use in scrapbooks or Smashbooks) The corner embellishment was made with the Memory Box Madera Corner Die. To finish it off, I distressed the paper edges, sponged with them with brown ink and added pearls made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen



She was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. The box was paper pieced with kraft carstock. 


My second card features "Meadow Peeker" who is also part of the Sweet Home Peekers. The papers on this card are from Kaisercraft Blae and Ivy...oh, and this paper pad just happens to be on sale right now for 20% off!!  It also includes some die cut borders and tags, one of which I used on this card. I used the Memory Box Delicate Vine Die to create the vine. Once again, I reached for my Viva Decor Pearl Pen to create the pearls. 


The scene was mostly coloured with Copics, but I used some ShinHan Touch Twin markers to colour her red dress. The sky was sponged in with blue ink and a hand cut cloud template. 



All the new stamps are available for purchase as individual stamps or as complete collections which are available at a discounted price. You will only find them at SCACD and at Quixotic Paperie for our international friends living across the pond. :)

It is now my pleasure to send you off to visit with the lovely Crystal. :)

Happy hopping!!

Blessings, 

Melanie
