It's Release Day at SCACD with new stamps from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD!

Hi folks! I must apologize for being MIA from blogging over the last month. Our family has had a busy schedule and so I decided to take most of July off from blogging. I will be taking it easy for August as well, but will be popping on to share a few things throughout the month. I will definitely be back in full swing for September. :)

Today get ready for a Cute and Cuddly release from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD!!! 

Our first set, The Storybook Collection, brings us all back to those childhood days when our best friend was our beloved Teddy Bear. We all told our secrets to our Teddy Bears, had a few misunderstandings but we always made up and were ready for new adventures to unfold.

Next we have a set of 4 adorable little girls with their FUN hats that make up Sampler #6. Each little girl is bound to make you smile and melt your heart.

Our final set, Sampler #7, is a variety of cute and fun! These 4 little girls remind us all of the simple pleasures of childhood from lollipop dreams to playing in the rain. 
If you've been following along, you should have arrived here after visiting with the lovely Kim. You can catch up on the SCACD Store blog if you lose your way through the hop because you will want to catch all the inspiration out there :)

My card today features the adorable "Umbrella Peeker" from the "Sampler #7". I think she's pretty stylin' in her cute raincoat, galoshes and umbrella...and her hair is looking fabulous! Mine NEVER looks that good out in the rain! lol  I used my Spellbinders Circles and Lacey Circles for cutting and matting the flowered paper. The corner embellishments were cut with a "Classic Corner Die" by SCACD. The papers were all distressed with my scissors and then sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. 

"Umbrella Peeker" was coloured with a combination of Copic and ShinHan markers. I love that these two marker brands can be used together. 

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20 (Copics)  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59 (Copics) Coat, Boots and all other red areas: R11, R13, BR94 (ShinHans), C5, C7 and BV29 (Copics), Pants: BG0000, B91, B93, B95, B97, C5, C7, BV29 (Copics), Umbrella: YG00, YG03, YG25, G20, BG70, BG72, BG75, BG79, C7 (Copics) 

All the new stamps are now available for purchase at SCACD! While you're there, make sure to check out all the other fantastic products Susana has in stock. She is always adding new items, so don't forget to check back often! I know there are some great new 6x6 paper pads, including some Halloween and Christmas collections...never too early to get a jump start on those holiday projects. :) 
It's my pleasure to send you off to the next stop on the hop... Alex! I know she has something amazing to share with you. :) 
Have fun!
