HAPPY FRIDAY! I am so excited - today is the release of ELISABETH BELL HOLIDAY PEEKERS FOR SCACD. I am so in love with these stamps. My first image is the PUMPKIN PATCH PEEKER. Did you catch the word first? (hee hee)

I stamped it with Memento Ink and colored with Copics. The ribbon is from my stash and the bow is made with my Bow Easy. The little pumpkin on the bow is highlighted with Stickles. The beautiful DP is BO BUNNY - FOREVER FALL. I love the puples and gold. To finish it off I punches and stamped two corner pieces and added some KAISERCRAFT RHINESTONES.

Now to my second image. She is WHERE ON THE TREE - PEEKER. Isn't she cute? Of course, she is colored with Copics. If you click on the picture you can really see all the shimmer and glitz on the ornament and hanger. For the ornament I used DECO ART GLAMOUR DUST - CRYSTAL and I used DECO ART GLAMOUR DUST - GOLD on the hanger. I used little stamps to decorate the ornament. There are so many ways to decorate it.

This beautiful DP is BEST CREATIONS MERRY CHRISTMAS. I am sure most of you are familiar with Best Creations paper, but for you who are not this paper is embossed and glittered. So I added more glitz by backing the image in gold glittered paper and using bows made with gold glitz ribbon. The little tree is from ribbon which was gold and I colored it with my Copics.

UK/Europe: You will find the stamps in the Elisabeth Bell section at Quixotic Paperie HERE.

Please go to the store Blog and check out the other designers cards. You will be amazed with all the different ideas with the same image.

Thank you for visiting me.

Good Morning! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. The weather here is now starting to feel a little like fall even though it is 90 degrees.

I tell ya, everytime I do one of the Sylvia Zet images I fall in love all over again. This image is PRECIOUS PRESENT FROM THE ADVENTURES OF POPPY AND FRIENDS.

Of course, she is colored with Copics. Hair: E30-35-57-59-YR21, Skin: E0000-E000-E02-E11-R20, Dress: BV0000-01-02-04-31, RV0000-55-63-66,
Gift: Y23. Her wings, headband, and flowers are accented with Stickles and Kaisercraft Pearls.

I know this card is kinda frilly, but with 4 granddaughters one of them will like it. I got a little carried away with the all the gold around the image, but it turned out okay. The MEMORY BOX ELEGANT SCROLLWORK DIE is used around the image and flowers. I just cut it up to suit my purpose. I used the MEMORY BOX VAL FLOURISH on the bottom. After I cut flourishes out I sprayed them and the flowers with MAYA ROAD IRIDESCENT PEARL gives them a really nice shimmer. If you click on the pic to enlarge it you may be able to see the sparkle.


Susana is always adding new fun stuff and goodies to SCACD. Here are a few you might want to check out, but while you are there take your time and see what fun stuff you find.

FALL AND WINTER PAPER PADS. She always has some of her paper on sale so don't miss looking at all the Paper Pads.




Be sure and check the store often. She is always getting in all kinds of paints, chipboard, canvas, etc.

Enjoy the rest of your day and thank you for visiting me today.

Here is my complete card. Aren't all these images just the cutest ever? I have the honor of presenting "Winter Wonder" and loved playing with this image. Of course, the image is colored with Copics. The trim around her coat, hat, and the little bear's hat was done using the Viva Satene - Mother of Pearl. This product has a nice texture and is super easy to apply with a brush.

The background is sponged on with several different colors. The snow and snowflakes were made by first using the Viva Satene - Mother of Pearl,after drying I applied DecoArt Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint - Crystal and while it was still wet I applied a little Flower Soft Diamond Range-Polar White which Susana just happens to have on sale now.

The beautiful DP is from the Bo Bunny - Father Christmas Paper Pad which is also on sale . As you all know I love the Bo Bunny Trinkets, this one is from the Father Christmas Pack. The beautiful bow was made using the Bow Easy and the satin ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
