New Sylvia Zet and Victoria Case Stamps are Here!

*A long post... with CANDY link below : D
(Creative Card Crew... scroll down for challenge card)

Good Morning and Happy Friday!!!  I really am happy today for several reasons... of course, one is that it's Blog Hop Day... but the other reason is that my DH is better!  The other day, one of my lovely followers commented that her DH was also sick.  She called it the man flu (rofl!).  I've used that ever since (thanks for the laugh!!!).

So... you may have stumbled here 'just because.'  If that's the case, you may wish to start at the beginning of the Hop which is Danni's Blog *Here.*  She has the most ADORABLE image to show off!  If you've already been hopping, you should have come here from Elaine's Blog where you've seen more fabulousness!!!

Before I show you two more must haves... I'd like to congratulate all the blog candy winners which were posted on the Store Blog.  Yay!!!  You'll want to check out the Store Blog daily for new products, information and inspiration.  There's always FUN going on there!

And now... I'd like to introduce you to Loli's Dance by Sylvia Zet for SCACD from the New Adventures of Loli and Poppy.  

Such a lovely lady : )  Her friend is happily dancing with joy!  Don't they make you smile?  I've used copic markers for coloring, with Stardust Stickles and Transparent Gloss Gel by Viva Decor for accents.  Can you see her shiny eyes and shoes?  

Another thing I'd like to point out is the lower left corner embellishment.  It was gold, but I painted it with Mother of Pearl Viva Decor Precious Metal Paint.  I love the coverage this paint provides!

Below you can see large pearls on the beautiful lace.  These are self-stick which you can find *Here.*  The smaller three at the bottom are Opal Paper Pen by Viva Decor *Here.*

After stamping with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloring with copics, I used the largest circle in the Spellbinders Classic Large Circle set to die cut the image.  Even the largest circle wasn't big enough to fit in the whole image, so I decided to leave some 'over the edge.'

The two small hearts were die cut with the smallest size heart in the Classic Scalloped Hearts.  The 'xoxo' heart stamp is from a clear stamp set by Hero Arts.  All pieces are distressed using Faded Jeans Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.

This view shows both Aqua Smooch and Smooch Illuminate which I used to color over the flowers and angel's wings on this cut out (which comes with the Sweet Nothings DP by Kaisercraft).  I am in LOVE with this paper pad!!! Note:  I don't see it in the store right now : (

All three hearts have been popped up with dimensionals *Here.*

My second card features 

Isn't she a beauty?  She's also colored with Copics and accented with Transparent Gloss Gel on her eyes and ladybugs.  After coloring her wings, I used a bit of Gold Glitz Glamour Dust Paint on top.  More Gold Glitz on the butterflies and centers of the black flowers (for even more dimension on the flower centers, I also used Gold Stickles).  For the centers of the butterflies, I used my Graphite Paper Pen.

The fun dp is Little Black dress by BasicGrey *Here.*  The dp directly behind the image is a combination I made using photoshop.  So the ladybugs would stand out more, I topped them with Transparent Gloss Gel.  I wanted just a 'touch' of ladybugs in the dp to peek out : D

I die cut the image using the largest circle in the Classic Large Circles.  This time, I left only her foot to go over the edge.  The pearls around the scalloped circle are from my Cream Paper Pen.  I can't tell you how much money I've saved using my paper pens...  I'm tellin' ya, it's the best thing since sliced bread lol!

More beautiful lace from my stash with Stardust Stickles accents and even a gorgeous stick pin *Here.*

*** International Friends can purchase these stamps at Quixotic Paperie ***
