FUN FUN FUN BLOG HOP - You should have arrived here from the super talented Aud's blog.

Good Morning,

Today is the day for the new releases MINI Sampler Edition #1 for Elisabeth Bell for SCACD and MINI Little Acorns Set for Victoria Case for SCACD.

I have the honor of presenting ROSE PETAL from the Mini Sampler Edition #1 for Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. This has to be the cutest little baby image I have seen. She look so peaceful sleeping and so adorable.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The Craft Den Anything Goes Challenge - Going Round in Circles
Crazy 4 Challenge - Bling
One Stitch at A Time - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Bloomin Marvelous - Flowers
Pixie Dust Studio Challenge - Swirly Swirls

Rose Petal was fun and relaxing to color if that makes sense. She is colored with Copics. The leaves have been glossed with Diamond Glaze and the roses are accented with Stickles.

The white flowers with the purple centers are Prima Cottage Blossoms from SCACD. The orange are from Wild Orchid. The three pearls are Kaisercraft,
Aren't these dps pretty? They are from the Cosmo Cricket - Pixie-Licious Mini Deck. Susana has these on sale. I put ric rac around the background of the image and finished off with swirls and a bow, which I made with my Bow Easy.

You must check out both of these MINI releases. They are absolutely adorable.

Now you need to go on over and check out Marti's wonderful creative project.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying the Blog Hop.

Good Morning! Oh, it is so nice to wake up to a nice cool fall morning, if only it wasn't allergy season. I had a lot of fun coloring and accenting this image. It is one of the fairies from The Pergamano More Fairies Set.
The image is colored with Copics. I got a little carried away with the Stickles, but fairies just need alot of glitz. The pink cherry blossoms are from Wild Orchid and the white are Prima Innoscence from SCACD. The paper folded strip is accented with Kaisercraft Rhinestones.
Kim is previewing a sneek peek today from the new SCACD -PALOOZA release this Friday. Also, a reminder the blog candy for this release ends tomorrow. There will be a blog hop this Friday showcasing all the stamps in this new release, please join us in all the fun.
Thank You for stopping by and have a wonderful week.

Good Morning,

I hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend! This stamp is "Autumn" from the Victoria Case Hearts and Hugs Collection #2 for SCACD. This stamps set is one of my favorites - actually, they all end up being my favorites. I took this picture from a different angle to try and capture all the details.

As you can see, I almost didn't have enough room for my sentiment - but I made it. (YAY) The squares are from the Maya Road Foundation Chipboard Set.
I punched out the square and painted it and then stamped my sentiment. I save the outline of the square to use later on. The leaf is one that was in my stash and I added stickles to give it a lift. The image is colored with Copics and again I used stickles for accent. The leaves have a wonderful glossy shine from the Diamond Glaze I used on them. The ribbon is also from my stash and the bow was made using the Bow Easy with a pretty little rose in the center.

Thank you for stopping by.

Just a little reminder - Susana has lots of new products in the store and getting more and more.

Good Morning! Well, is is finally drying out a little here. I live in Central Texas and the flooding has done so much damage. Thankfully, I did not have flooding at my house.

Isn't this image cuteee? It is from the Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Animapeeps Collection. This collection has to be one of my favorites with the little animals.

The DT challenge this week was to make a shaped card. It has to be anything but round or square. I used one of my Nestabilities and the size and shape was perfect for this image. The image is colored with Copics. The center of the binkie and the heart on the rattle has a little Diamond Glaze to make them shiny, then I used my American Craft White Gel Pen for the little dots on her dress and to accent her feet. This has to be the best white pen. She is cutout and popped up just a little. I applied Stickles Stardust on the swirl accent. To finish it off I added Kaisercraft Flatback Adhesive Pearls. The DP is Memory Box - Gossamer. I saved my favorite product for last - on the flower I sprayed some Maya Mist - Irisdescent Pearl.

For the inside I used a little more pearls and used my Nestabilities. I kept it simple.

For more exciting shapes and ideas please go here today and Thursday to check out the other DT samples.

Good Morning! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend (US). It is finally cooling off a little here. It's only in the 90s during the day, but last night it did get down to 75. Here is another adorable image from the Elisabeth Bell Animapeeps for SCACD collection. This image is "Binkies Rule". This is one of my favorite sets.

The DT challenge this week is 2x2x2. Two papers, two products, and 2 embellishments. I love embellies so it was hard to only use 2. I wanted to add ribbon. The two products I used were the Viva Pearl Pen Ice White and Stardust Stickles. The pearls were made with Viva pen and I also painted here blouse with the same pen. The pen gave her blouse a really nice sheen. Stickles was used on the dots. For embellishments I layered 2 buttons and used embroidery thread to tie the bow. The paper is from the Nursery Pack.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers - Clean and Simple
Craftalicious - Purple and Green
Secret Crafter Saturday - Clean and Simple

Be sure and check out the other creative projects from the DT here. They are super fabulous. After you check out the projects go over to Susana's store to check out all the new products. She amazes me. She is getting in some really cool stuff everyday, stuff I haven't even heard of before. Like the Epiphany Crafts tool. There is also video showing how to use it.

Thank you for stopping bye and enjoy the rest of the week.
