SCACD New Release Blog Hop - When Sweet Meets Sassy Release

Hello all and welcome to another stop of the SCACD New Release Blog Hop - When Sweet Meets Sassy!  If you arrived here from wonderful Danni's blog you are on the right track! If not please go back to the SCACD store blog to start from the beginning. There you'll also find the complete blog hop list and all the details regarding the hop!

I'm thrilled and honored that Susana asked me again to participate in one of her awesome new release hops and that I can show you today two of these fantastic new images today. This time the artist is Victoria Case. 2 sets are being released today The Retro Collection and The Bonita Collection  Both collections are available as a complete set (with bonus stamp only available in each of the sets) and as single stamps.

As my GDT projects for today's hop I made a card using Mrs. Cleaver from the Retro Collection & Beach Bonita from the Bonita Collection. They are both GORGEOUS and such fun to color and create with :-)
Here's my first card, Mrs. Cleaver:

I colored Mrs. Cleaver using my Copics. When I first saw her she was screaming 'pink' to So I went ahead and colored her pink. And of course she has to have blonde hair and blue eyes! The DP is from Basic Grey's 'Sugared' collection. Border punch is from MS and the leave die is from Marianne Design. I added lots of sparkle using Stickles Star Dust and Golden Rod. The sentiment is from WOJ.


For my second project I made a bookmark using Beach Bonita:

This time I colored using a combo of Copics and colored pencils with OMS. To her eyes I added some shine using a green glaze pen. DP is from BG's Whisteria collection. For some glitter effects I added Stickles to the image and DP.

And this is how it looks like when it's being used in a book :-)

Now it's time for you to hop on and your next stop in the hop is Jane! I know she has something fantastic to show you!
And just a little reminder. If you are in Europe and like to purchase SCACD stamps this is your address to go to: Quixotic Paperie, who is an exclusive SCACD retailer!

I hope you had fun here today on my blog and are enjoying the hop as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by and Happy TGIF my friends!
