SCACD Blog Hop

Hi everyone and happy Friday!  I'm so excited to share two cards with you today.  A couple of years ago, I had the honor of being a designer for my buddy Susana, owner of Susana's Custom Art and Card Design.  When Susana contacted me a few weeks ago to ask me if I would be interested in returning as a guest for this special blog hop, of course I jumped at the chance :)  Hopefully, you are hopping along with us and are joining me from Diane's Blog.  If you have lost your way, head to the SCACD Store Blog for a complete list of all hop participants. 

Today SCACD is formally premiering the SCACD Digital site by adding over 35 images designed by Carmen Medlin!!! Carmen's range is fun, fresh as well as elegant and will have something for everyone. Susana has added quite a few never before seen Fab images as well as taken some classic past rubber stamps and turned them into digi for this release.

For my first card, I used the adorable image called Venus the Fly Trap.

How cute is this image?!?!  I of course colored him with my copics.  Here are the colors I used:

Yellows: Y21, YR23, E33, E35
Pot: E42, E43, E44, E47
Grays: W2, W4, W6, W8

My DP is a mix from two different stacks, the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells stack and the Carta Bella Cool Summer stack.  Check out that adorable sentiment, isn't it perfect?  It comes with the image.  I added a bow and rose and then the pretty accent in the corner was made using the Madera Corner Memory Box die.  Here are a couple more pictures:

What do you think?  For my second card, I used the gorgeous image, Butterfly Dreams.  She was a dream to color.

I of course colored her up with my copics.  Here arte the copics I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Pinks: RV000, R81, R83, R85
Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Greens: G21, G94, G99
Shadow: W2, W4, blender

My DP is from Bo Bunny's Love Letters paper stack.  The gorgeous embellishments in the corners were made from Nature's Tapestry Fan Die, which is a die designed and sold exclusively at SCACD.  A bow and rose finish off the card.  Here are a couple more pictures:

What do you think?  Well, that's it from me today.  Please hop along with us.  Your next step on the hop is Crystal's Blog.

Reminder to Our International Friend: As you know, SCACD has stopped the sale of physical items. However, International customers can now purchase SCACD Digital images only.

Join us today to celebrate this release with the SCACD DT as well as bunch of amazing Guests.  If you loose your way check out the Store Blog for the entire list. 

That's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Huge hugs!
