Victoria Case for SCACD -- The Hearts and Hugs Collection



Hi Everyone and Happy Friday!!! :) Today is Release Day at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and I am SO excited! Susana's DT is doing a Blog Hop today to showcase all the new stamps so if you are joining me today and haven't been around the "hop" yet, make sure to go to Suzanne's Blog to start at the very beginning.

I could barely wait to share this brand new stamp line with you all. The new line is illustrated by the incredibly talented Victoria Case. She has designed a set of 9 stamps exclusively for Susana's Store. This first collection by Victoria is called the Hearts and Hugs Collection and you can see all of these sweet images HERE. Aren't they adorable!!! (can ya tell I'm excited :) ). Susana has also created her own set of 10 sentiments called Susanaments which are designed to correspond with these adorable stamps. I just love the font and the sayings of these sentiments, SO cute! :)

And now, without further delay, here's my card for today:



The image I used is called Just Because and oh my goodness, isn't it sweet :) I had such a ball coloring this adorable image :) I inked the image with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with my copics. I added some gold glitter with my Copic Gold Glitter Pen to the center of the flower and added Diamond Stickles to the fairy's wings. The sentiment is, of course, from the Susanaments Set (I cannot stress enough how much I love these sentiments!) :)

I used this week's Sketch Saturday Sketch for my layout. All of my cardstock is from SU (Ruby Red, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery) and my design paper is from K&Co's new Wild Raspberry line. I added a blue sheer ribbon and a Blue Moon Heart Charm, as well as some Primas for some finishing touches. What do you think?

I hope you are enjoying these new releases as much as I am. :) All images, as well as the Susanaments set are available now, so what are ya waiting for :) Make sure to check out Susana's Store to see all of these adorable images. And now, on with the blog hop :) Your next stop on the hop is Anki's Blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend and I'll see you back here tomorrow with another project.

Big Hugs, Christine :)
