Hopping into SCACD Release Day!

I am so excited for today! It’s been very hard to keep quiet about this amazing release! Lots to show so let’s get to it!

I’m the beginning of the hop but if you get lost along the way or if there is a hiccup, you can find a complete list of hoppers on the store blog, Follow Your Heart.

Here’s a little bit about today’s release~

Here at SCACD we've been "die"ing to mix things up!  So, this month we have the launch of two awesome new Collections.

First is a fantastic new line of dies.  Susana has collaborated on a collection of dies with a timeless, classic feel.  Delicate and beautiful, the diecuts from these high quality wafer thin metal dies will be featuring on your projects for years to come!

Second is a wonderful new direction for SCACD.  Susana is following her heart with a new line of Mixed Media stamps.  For those of you who are new to the concept, Mixed Media is a style that embraces creativity and experimentation. Let SCACD take you on a new creative adventure with the Blank Canvas Collection.  From the beginner to the mixed media enthusiast, these stamps will have the creative juices well and truly flowing! 

Each set in the collection comprises looks, perfect for mixing it up with different techniques.  Use the elements set to enhance the blank canvas silhouettes, or use them on their own for gorgeous effects.

In addition there is a fabulous set of word outlines, ready to be customized however you like!  Color them in, doodle, zentangle, paper piece - go wherever your creativity takes you.

Mix it up and most importantly - HAVE FUN!

I am showing one of the new Susana Loves Stamps-Resilient Woman today and several of the new Elements that are being released. I love that everything mixes and goes together however YOU decide to make it! 

I stamped Resilient Woman in Jet Black Archival ink and then stamped the word Authentic from the Authentic Set also in Jet Black Archival ink. On a sheet of vellum I stamped Blank Canvas Wings also in Jet Black Archival ink and then cut them out.

Next I sprayed Dylusions Ink Spray in Lemon Zest and Bubblegum Pink onto the sheet with the words and Resilient Woman. I must say I really, really liked the Dylusions Ink Sprays and will be getting more and using them more often!! I doodled in one of the Authentic words with my copic multi-liner .03 so it would stand out.

I attached the wings and finished the card and I must say that I really LOVE how it turned out! So fun! 



We all know Susana loves dies so it’s so exciting to announce that we are releasing the first Dies by SCACD!!! How totally awesome is that!! And I just know you’ll love them all!

I am presenting the Uncaged Bird Die, which I think is just so beautiful! So many details and the design is just gorgeous!

For this card I used the Uncaged Bird Die and cut it out 4 times, 1 for each color and then I just cut the shapes I wanted out~ green for the vines/leaves, yellow for the bird and pink for the butterflies and brown for the base/birdcage. It was very easy to do and I think the end result is so pretty!!


I also wanted a bit of texture so I used some embossing folders with some of the elements~ these are the ones I used~ Craft Concepts Brocade on the birdcage and bird and Craft Concepts Secret Garden on the leaves/vines. The butterflies needed to sparkle so they have stickles on them! I also thought that the leaves needed a little something so I added a touch of Luminarte Primary Elements Mica powder in Kiwi mixed with multi-medium gloss. The bird has touches of Luminarte Silks in Honey Amber on it as well.


You’ll also notice the corner die, you guessed it, another Dies By SCACD!! I am just so thrilled, excited and jumping off the roof for these dies! This corner die is from the Classic Corners set. I added a touch of sparkle with Smooch Glitz in Frost to the corner dies.


I used the pretty Glitz Pretty In Pink papers and some Kaisercraft pearls  to tie the whole card together.


Now you should hop on over to Elaine’s amazing blog! and don’t forget to head to SCACD when you’re done hopping to do some shopping for these must have stamps and dies! For our International friends, Quixotic Paperie also has these amazing stamps and dies available now!!
