Happy Birthday Quixotic Paperie!!!

Welcome friends!  Some of the SCACD Design Team have the pleasure of joining Quixotic Paperie today to help celebrate their 2nd Anniversary, and also to throw the spotlight on SCACD Stamps, which are available in the UK at Quixotic Paperie!

Today designers from both the SCACD Stamps and Quixotic Paperie teams are showing off creations featuring some of the gorgeous images available through SCACD Stamps. 

It's not a hop, so feel free to dip in and out of the list of blogs however you please!

Here's the list of participants:

As you may be aware, SCACD Stamps is run by the lovely Susana of Susana's Custom Art & Card Design in the US.  The SCACD Stamps range is available in the UK exclusively at Quixotic Paperie.

There are three fantastic artists in the current range from SCACD Stamps - Carmen Medlin, Elisabeth Bell and Victoria Case, each with a different style.

  

As part of the celebrations and the spotlight today, there is a PRIZE GIVEAWAY!  Visit the Quixotic Inspirations blog for details and to enter!

For my contribution to today's celebration, I decided to use Hey Birdy Peeker by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.  Can you believe this is the first time I've inked up this cutie pie?  I knew I was saving it for a special occasion!  Happy Happy Birthday Quixotic Paperie ♥  Elaine, you are fabulous!!!

After stamping with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I colored in this wee babe with my fave coloring medium, copics:  RV34 RV32 RV11 RV10; YG05 YG01 YG00 YG95 Y15; B04 B01 B00 B0000; W9 W7 W5 W3 W1. I decided I wanted to keep her hat light, so I used B00 and B0000 for a bit of color, then sprinkled on a generous coat of sparkly Glamour Dust (on top of the glue, of course!).  The water in the bird bath needed a bit of shine, so it received my go-to Diamond Glaze.

The image was die cut using Small Classic Circle Nestabilities, layered over pink cs die cut using Small Classic Scalloped Circle Nestabilities.  The awesome pearls were made with my FAVORITE Opal Paper Pen by Viva Decor.

 
Isn't this adorable? It's a cupcake gift bag, template courtesy of Daisie Company.  

 
More bling on the cherry using Glamour Dust and Stardust Stickles around the pink and green dots.  I was so happy when I realized I had this oh-so-perfect ribbon to match : )  I dug up a clear stamp set I purchased at JoAnn's last year which also came in handy for today's celebration!  The ticket background is one stamp, the outline another stamp, and the sentiment the third stamp.

HINT when using clear stamps:  You probably already know this, but I found out some helpful news while making the ticket sentiment.  Because of the clear stamp, when I used Memento Ink, the sentiment was blotchy and kinda blurry which is fine if that's the look you're going for (I wasn't).  I tried Versafine Ink next and it worked great!  When I stamped the ticket background, I used Distress Ink.  Again, I didn't like the way it turned out.  Next, I tried Stampin' Up Mauve Mist Ink which worked like a charm!  This is the result you see.  I don't know if they still have this color, but again, it's good to know that their ink works well with clear stamps.  Ta da!!!!!  I have a new appreciation for clear stamps now - yippeee!
 
Here's the backside...
