A Fabulous SCACD Release You Don't Want to Miss!!!

I am soooo jazzed... I can hardly contain my excitement!!!  If you've never followed a Blog Hop before, this is surely the one you want to start with!  If you are a seasoned veteran, well hang on to your hats folks... these are really really gorgeous!!!  So... let's begin!

If you are hopping with us today, you should have come from Danni's blog which is the beginning : )  If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire hop list on the store blog.

YAY!!! Time for another exciting SCACD Stamp Release!!! SCACD is thrilled to bring you the follow up to the super sweet Eyes of Beauty and Dreams Collection with the Newest Eyes of Adventure and Fables Collections. We definitely think the Eyes have it!!! These eyes just capture your heart, and even better each stamp comes with an accessory image!!! Today I get to introduce...

Isn't she lovely?  I almost can't stop looking at her, she's soooo pretty lol!!!  This beauty carries a sweet flower pot with a daisy (you'll understand later WHY I'm mentioning this!)

She's colored with copics (I'm in Sacramento today with Debbie Olson for Copic Certification - YAY!!!  I can't wait to learn more more more!).

I chose to show off Vintage Eyes with a Black-Eyed Susan stencil using gorgeous, gorgeous 3D Stamp Paint in Moss Green and Rose.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE 3D Stamp Paint!  I'll show you next how I created this easy background :)

The only embellishments I've used is Viva Decor Paper Pens in Yellow and Opal - now ON SALE!!!  These make easy pearls in a snap!

Stenciling with 3D Stamp Paint

Step One:  Choose your stencil and secure to paper with tape.  I used a heavy weight Mixed Media paper by Strathmore so I wouldn't have to deal with curling and warping :D

Step Two:  Open your paint and have sponge(s) ready because you'll need to work fairly quickly.  Although it's not a big deal if you take your time, the longer the paint is on the sponge and stencil, the harder it is to clean...

Here, I've already stenciled the 'daisies' with the larger sponge in Rose, and am finishing up the Moss Green with a smaller sponge.  *Note:  I was not particularly concerned if colors ran into the 'wrong' areas, but if you want a cleaner look, cover up the areas you wish to remain pure while you change colors.

Step Three:  As soon as you're done sponging the paint, carefully remove the stencil.  Most likely the paint will already be dry... no kidding!  Just look at the shimmer and shine!!!  This is the most textured and shimmery paint  I've used before... just beautiful : )

Step Four:  Clean your tools.  I mean it lol!

Next up is... Vintage Eyes by Susana Loves Stamps.  WHAT?!?  That is not an error hee hee.  Just wait!!!

Oh I had so much fun creating this card!  The first thing to note are the dies by SCACD I used.  Very, very cool... Ornate Hinge and Ornate Doorplate with knob.  I left the hinges cardstock white, but the doorplate and knob I sponged with 3D Stamp Paint in Gold (I don't see gold currently in the store).  WOW!  This paint is simply amazing.  You only need a little and it covers in one coat beautifully.  It is a thick, textured paint and oh so FUN :)

I cut out the door panel with my Cameo (another LOVE!).  The hinges already have holes to insert brads, so I placed them over the edge of the door and marked with a pencil so I'd know where to punch with my 1/16" hole punch.

The card front is covered with a piece of lace I purchased at Joann's on sale yay... during which time I also found this fabric on sale with the little 'ornaments' I cut out to make a banner.  The banner string is Sew Easy Floss in Deep Ocean (20% OFF!) HERE.

***News Flash***
ACK!!!  Do you like the itty bitty ornaments I used?  You can find similar Itty Bitty Stamps HERE!  They are sooooo adorable!  I'm gonna go grab some before they're gone!!!  If I only knew before I created this card lol!

Just look at the gorgeous detail of THIS die cut and the paint didn't even goop up!  Oh... To make the knob stand out, I used two dimensionals and painted over the knob again so the 'white sticky' wouldn't show through.

Ta Daaaaaaa!  The other side of the door... but not inside of the card!  It's Vintage Eyes!!!!!!  But wait... she not only looks different because of the colors I've used, take a look at the flower pot in her hands.

Vintage Eyes comes with this Poinsettia accessory stamp woo hoo!!!  To get this look, I used my craft knife to make a slit above and below her hands so the flower pot slid in (I did trim the pot a little on the sides to fit better).  The daisy is behind the poinsettia, but the only thing you can see of it are a couple of the leaves which blend in :)  ***So to be clear:  I've used the image with the Daisy, but covered the Daisy with the Poinsettia...

Here are the Copic colors I've used: E57 E55 E53 E51; E11 E00 E000; B26 B24 B02; G28 G24 G21 G20; R89 R29 R27 R24 R22 YR21.

*ShinHan Markers can be found HERE*

Beginning with this release, I decided I wanted to use Pebbles Chalks for the cheeks (I really like this!!!).  They are sooooo much easier to blend than copics for me.

Last, but certainly not least... everything on both of these cards were adhered with ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever!

For our International friends, this NEW RELEASE
is available at Quixotic Paperie.

Your next stop is Amanda!

Thanks so much for visiting ♥

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~
