Time for Another Release at SCACD!

Welcome to our release day blog hop at SCACD. :)

Susana is releasing a few fantastic sets today. Two of these sets feature some super cute monsters, "Oddly Sweet Curiosities One" and "Oddly Sweet Curiosities Two". These monsters are available as complete sets or individually, and each monster comes with a coordinating sentiment. The third set features some sweet little goth girls, "Little Sassy Crew". These are also available as a set or individually. Finally, there is the "Susana Loves Stamps-M's Place Set"...this is a great collection of funky little houses, clouds, trees and a few other objects that are perfect for creatining scenes for your main image stamps or for use in your mixed media projects. This collection will ONLY be sold as a set.

If you've been hopping along, you should have arrived here after visiting with the lovely Lorraine. If not, pop on over to the beginning of the hop with Danni.

I've got two cards to share with you today. Up first, is one of the "Little Sassy Crew" in combination with some stamps from the "M's Place Set". This is "Little Stargazer"...a little sweet, a little sassy and maybe even just a little funky. :)  To create my scene, I first stamped "Little Stargazer" in Memento Ink on Neenah paper. I masked her and then stamped one of the M's Place houses. I then masked the house and stamped one of the M's Place clouds. The papers on this card are from Fancy Pants Summer Soul. I also used one of the Classic Corner Dies by SCACD and a Memory Box Die to create the vine border. To finish it off, I added some pearls created with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Black.

The images were coloured with Copics. The house was paper-pieced and then shaded with markers.

My second card was made with one of the monsters from "Oddly Sweet Curiosities One"...this is "Monster Bling", along with the sentiment that accompanies her. The papers are from Basic Grey "Little Black Dress". She was matted with Spellbinders Circles and Lacey Circles. I used the Classic Corner Dies by SCACD and added a few rhinestone swirls. You can check out SCACD's selection of rhinestone embellishments HERE.

Monster Bling was coloured with Copics. Her ring was given a bit of extra pizzazz with my Viva Decor Hologram Glitter Liner

All the new stamps are now available for purchase exclusively at SCACD and at Quixotic Paper for our international friends.

That's it from me today! It's now my pleasure to send you off to visit with the talented Lori...enjoy the hop!
