Release Day at SCACD...Oddly Sweet Curiosities!

Today SCACD releases the sequel to the oh so popular Oddly Sweet Curiosities!!!

This is a fun and fresh stamp Collection from Susana Loves Stamps!!!We proudly introduce the Oddly Sweet Curiosities Sets 3 and 4 which house some of the cutest little Curiosities with matching sentiments. SCACD has continued with the appeal these little Curios have that are a combination of inspiration as well as happiness thru laughter...the best medicine!!! Each Curiosity comes with its own matching sentiment. So pick up one or the whole set so you can mix and match the sentiments. 

To celebrate this release, we're having  fun blog hop showcasing the new stamps. You can find the complete hop list at the Store Blog. If you've been hopping along in order, you should have arrived here after visiting with my talented friend Alex. :)

I've created two cards for today hop. Up first is "Moments" from the Oddly Sweet Curiosities Set 4. Daydreaming and taking time to enjoy life's simple pleasures are often things we forget about as we grow up and get busy in the hectic pace of life. We should follow this little guy's lead, and remember to pause for a bit of quiet time amidst the hustle and bustle. :)  I paired him up with some Valentine's Day papers from last year. You can find the full selection of 6x6 paper pads including Valentine's designs HERE. The corners embellishments were cut with Fancy Flower and Key Corner Dies by SCACD. The flourishes were cut with a Memory Box Die. The pearls were created with a Viva Decor Pen. The dandelion fluff was touched with a bit of Stardust Stickles

"Moments" was stamped on Neenah in Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. The sky was sponged in with blue ink and hand cut cardstock cloud template. 

Up next is "Me and My L'il Buddy" from the Oddly Sweet Curiousities Set 3. Dinosaurs are so much! The papers are from Authentique...again, HERE is the link to the paper selection at SCACD. The corners were cut with Classic Corner Dies by SCACD. The sentiment comes with the stamp, but remember that you can mix and match the sentiments and stamps from this set for lots of variety!

Me and My L'il Buddy was stamped in Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. 

After you're done hopping today, make sure to head over to SCACD where the new stamps are all available for purchase! Our international friends can find them at Quixotic Paperie

SPECIAL NOTICE FOR MY FELLOW CANADIANS: It is with much regret that SCACD will no longer be shipping to Canada. Susana loves her loyal Canadian customers and has GREATLY appreciated each and every one of you over the years. However, USPS has recently significantly increased their shipping rates to Canada. They  have also changed their policies for preparing parcels for shipping, which has become very time consuming. She would LOVE to continue providing her customers with the amazing service they have come to appreciate, but these changes are out of her hands and unfortunately there is nothing she can do about them. So it is because of these factors that the decision was made to no longer ship to Canada. Quixotic Paperie will still be carrying the exclusive SCACD stamps and dies, so you can always purchase them there. Susana wishes to extend her heartfelt thanks for all the years of loyalty!! 

It's now my pleasure to send you off to visit with the lovely and talented Kathi...happy hopping!!

Thanks for stopping by,
