SCACD THIS & THAT RUBBER STAMP BLOG HOP!!!

 Welcome to another fun showcase of newly released rubber stamps and yes a few new digi from SCACD.   I am thrilled and excited to have been invited again to be a guest designer and take part in the blog hop today for SCACD featuring this fabulous new release.

SCACD is releasing 9 new rubber stamps which are collectively called the “This and That Collection.”  They each can be purchased now HERE They were inspired by things going on in Susana's life as well as imagery she loves. SCACD Artist Carmen Medlin and Susana collaborated on the images.  Carmen did an amazing job bringing these to life!!!  We are featuring 4 Zen Beauties as well as 5 eclectic fun stamps today.  On a happy note if you buy the complete set of 4 Zen Beauties at one time you will get an accompanying accessory maple seed stamp as a bonus stamp.

You should have arrived here from Alex's blog with her fabulous creations featuring Faith and Hope - from the new Zen Beauties Collection.  If you get lost during the Hop you can always find your way at the Store Blog HERE.

I am pleased to share with you the delightful new fairy stamp Serenity, one of four new stamps from the Zen Beauties Collection.  She looks so sweet and serene sitting there on the tree branch.


SERENITY



She was stamped then colored with Copic markers.  A dotted background effect with Copic markers was created to give the impression of magical fairy dust surrounding her.  Clear crystal gel pen was added to the flower centers and the fairy dust for a bit of sparkle, although it's hard to see in the picture.  Her wings are colored in a blending of blues, pinks and greens, then brushed with Star Dust Stickles to make them look iridescent. 

The Breezy Branches Statement Corner Die, which you can find HERE, was cut out twice and colored with Copics.  A piece of the second tree branch die was added to the main die cut to cover where I messed up gluing the main image down on the turquoise mat.

Serenity was stamped a couple of more times to use the flowers.  I colored them, cut them out and glued them on the Breezy Branches and Classic Corners dies.  The other two dies, Classic Corners and Garden Corners, also by SCACD, were each cut out twice and colored with Copics before gluing in place.  They can also be found HERE at SCACD.
 
SCACD also decided to offer only 3 of these not only in rubber but in digi as well for her SCACD Digital fans. So you can see the 3 newest versions at the top of the Digi area HERE.
 
For our International Friends you can find the new SCACD Stamps HERE at Quixotic Paperie.
 
Along with these fab NEW stamps, you might want to check out the other NEW products at SCACD HERE.
 
You should next be headed off to Kathi's  post for more fantastically talented inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by. 
Enjoy the rest of the hop.
