Good Morning! Man, it seems like forever since I have posted a card. My craft room needed a serious organization and it took alot longer than I thought it would. Good news, I found stuff I forgot I even had. Finally, I got around to being able to make a card. Isn't this image just the sweetest? It is "Blowing Kisses" from The Spring Sampler Set 2011 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.
This post will be a little more lengthy than normal because I have some goodies to tell you about that Susana just got in. The image was colored with Copics and highlighted with Stickles. The background was cut with my Spellbinder Nestie Lacey Circle and embossed with a CB folder.

These gorgeous flowers are Prima that I distressed and sprayed with my favorite Maya Road Mist - Iridescent Pearl which make them sparkle and glisten. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Here is a picture of the inside. I know hearts, hearts, and more hearts. Just wanted to pass it on.

Now on to the shopping news - Susana has in the following new items:

Kaisercraft flowers 4 new colors

New Petaloo (sweet fabric flowers OH SO YUMMY)

Goosebumps (fun stuff spray some on your paper for a embossed effect or resist)

Le Blanche (Silicone stamps very different this a wood mount effect but it is squichy cushion and a plastic like image - Works & gorgeous)

Also, Susana has the SEW EASY back in stock with all the attachments. These are in great demand, so get yours before they are gone.

Thank you for stopping in and checking out my card. I appreciate all of my followers.

Have a wonderful and blessed week.

Good Morning!! Hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend. Don't you just love these Bonitas? This one is "Victoria Bonita" from Victoria Case The Bonitas Collection. If you purchase the set you get a Free Flourish Stamp. These are so versatile and can be use for many occasions. This is only my second one to color, but I can hardly wait to do the others.

These are colors I don't normally use together, but the fun Kaisercraft Candyland Paper just called for pretty bright colors with went well with the Victoria Bonita.

The image is colored with Copics and the white dots on her dress were made with my American Crafts Ultimate Gel White Pen. The flower and the edging of her dress are highlighted with Stickles, but I felt like it still needed more bling so I added some Kaisercraft Rhinestones. You can click on the pics to enlarge them.

Before I go I would like to tell you about the NEW SCACD FRIENDS WITH HEART CHALLENGE BLOG that will wil starting April 5th. We would love to have you join us. Just click on the link above and see all the goings on. There is going to be one lucky winner of the New 2011 - 12Piece Copic Set.

Good Morning! It seems like years since I have last posted. I was away and did not have a chance to craft. (ugh) You know how that you makes you feel. Well, this beautiful image is from the Victoria Case for SCACD - The Bonita's Collection. This one is Flora Bonita.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time - Glitter and Gems

The corners were stamped with the FREEBIE when you purchase The Bonita Collection (4 stamps). I stamped them in red and then added a little color on the leaves with Copics, but the flowers are painted with Deco Art Glamour Dust Ultrafine Glitter Paint. At one time I woudn't use anything but Stickles until I tried this paint and it sparkles and sparkles and sparkles. The background was cut with my Nestabilities - Lacy Circles and then I dabbed a little of the Glamour Dust on the edges.

This wonderful DP is Memory Box 6x6 - Brioche. Check out all the new paper Susana has in stock. It is hard to chose which ones to purchase.

Thank you for stopping by and Have A Wonderful Day!!!

Good morning !! Does this image make you wish you were on a nice warm sunny beach sipping a Mai Tai? Today Susana has a Super Fabulous totally different release by Victoria Case for SCACD - When Sweet Meets Sassy Collection. We are having a Blog Hop to present all the wonderful stamps. You should have arrived here from the super creative Marti's blog. The new release is comprised of 2 Sets which you can buy individually or together. If you purchase The Retro Crew Collection , the lava lamp free. If you purchase The Bonita Collection the flourish stamp is free. I think after you go through the Blog Hop you will want both sets - they are a must have.

I am honored to present to you "Just Chill'n" She was soooo much fun to color and play with. She is colored with Copics other than her swimsuit which is painted with the new DecoArt Glamour Dust Ultrafine Glitter Paint Lemon and Celebration Pink. Unfortunately, my pics don't show are the glitz. Maybe if you enlarge the pic by clicking on it you can see all the glittery effect.

The ribbon is some I had in my stash and was perfect with the DP and image. The perfect little bow was made using my Bow Easy. The sun brad was one I found way down deep in the bottom of my stash and it is yellow as just what I needed. To finish it off I added some Kaisercraft Rhinestones on the bottom of the background punch.

Here is another angle. She is so sunny and bright and so much fun. Before you continue on to fabulous Mary's blog I would like to let you know some of the wonderfully new products Susana has in the store.

Good Morning!!

This image is from the "Reflections Set #2 by Carmen Mendlin for SCACD".
It reminds me of my granddaughter who has a Golden Retriever named "Belle" who she is always dressing up, reading, and playing with. The name "I Wanna to Play" is perfect for this stamp.

Since Nicole and Belle are best friends I thought making a little accordion album for pictures would be perfect with the image. I didn't distress the pages because Nicole likes to distress and stamp even though she is only 6. The image is colored with Copics and accented with Stickles. The little tear drop shaped Geo Sparklers work well with the punched loop background. If you click on the pic and enlarge it you can see the flowers have been misted with Maya Road Mist for some extra glitz. I haven't used brads in forever, but I like the look of these little polka dot ones.

REMINDER: Susana has in more and more new products and getting in more everyday. She is now carrying the Earth Art International Stamp Line. These are really cool and different.

Thank you so much for stopping by and please stop by the store blog and check out the other DT samples.
