Welcome to the SCACD The Elements Collection blog hop!

It is new rubber stamp release time! YAY! Time to follow the blog hop so that you can get a first look at the four lovely new rubber stamps from Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD)

If you hopped on over to my blog from Alex at Paper and String then you are on the right track. If not then start your hopping at Alex’s blog or hop to the Store blog for the whole list.

So let me introduce you to SCACD The Elements Collection Water stamp.

Look at me doing some image colouring! I haven’t done image colouring for my blog in ages! Ahh but she is too beautiful not to want to colour. It was great fun colouring her and I used my Prismacolor pencils.

I hope that you enjoy checking out the other Elements from the SCACD The Elements Collection, all of them beautiful!

You can find the new stamps over at the SCACD store for USA-based customers or at Quixotic Paperie for EU-based, so go check them out but only after you have finished the hop!

The new SCACD Stamp ranges are available in the UK/EU exclusively at Quixotic Paperie or from Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design in the US.

So my first peek is of Spike from the Oddly Sweet Curiosities #5 collection…

Cute!

Next peek is Radiant Moth from The MechAnimals collection…

I have a thing for circuit board so LOVE Radiant Moth! As you can see these guys are a little different and totally fab I’m sure you will agree.

SCACD The Fairy Dust Collection New Release Blog Hop

Everyone loves fairies right? Well we have some new beauties to fall in love with today!

Welcome to the Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) New Release blog hop! I’m so excited to be able to show you one of the lovely new stamps from The SCACD Fairy Dust Collection.

If you have hopped on over from Alex’s blog Paper And String then you are on the right track. If not then you might want to hop to the start at Kathi’s blog Kat’s Tales Of Stamping And Scrapping.

So the new SCACD stamps on show today are illustrated by the super talented Elisabeth Bell. There are six fairies in the new Fairy Dust Collection and all are gorgeous and I’m sure will become firm favourites that you will just want to ink up again and again.

The new collection is available from Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design if you are in the US or from Quixotic Paperie if you are outside the US.

My Fairy is called Time Flies…

Isn’t she gorgeous? I’ve coloured her with Prismacolor pencils, but I’ve also added some gold highlights to her hair, wing cogs, laces and watch with acrylic paint.

The die in the background is the Alice Clock Statement corner from SCACD, and I’ve used it twice to make the semi-circle. You can find more SCACD dies over at Quixotic Paperie or over at SCACD.

Right, well that is my look-see shared. But there are more lovelies on our journey.

Next hop is Melanie at Paper Blessings.

Have fun!

SCACD Blank Canvas Collection #2 Blog Hop!

Who is up for some new stamps and a Blog Hop?

Oh yeah new stamps time! It’s the new Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) Blank Canvas Collection #2, did you spot the original release in the February issue of Craft Stamper recently? One lovely make was even from our very own Elaine Hughes (the first stop on this hop – if you want to start from the beginning).

So the new collection of stamps and dies are still a lovely medley of inspiration for beginners and experts alike and for all your mixed media, journalling, papercrafts and altering passions. The stamps are available in the UK and internationally from Quixotic Paperie and for USA then pop on over to SCACD.

You can also find the dies at Quixotic Paperie and SCACD of course!

I thought I would go a little bit altering and mixed media for my sample, don’t you just love those steampunk wings?

So if you haven’t guessed – it is an altered matchbox and I’ve gesso-ed, added old book pages and washi tape with some extra stamping for good measure!

I’ve stamped part of one of the sentiments onto some acetate so that I could curve it slightly around the edge of the matchbox.

I’m thinking this might make a fun serious to do – little altered matchboxes with the SCACD Blank Canvas Collection? What do you think?

Ok so you have some more hopping to do! 

Next on your journey is lovely Melanie at Paper Blessings.

Have fun.

Getting Spooky In Morticia’s Gruesome Laboratory

Hey everyone, Zombie Kim here to give you a guided tour of Morticia’s Gruesome Laboratory, please don’t touch any of the bottles in the lab, you have no idea where they have been or what is inside them.

Please take your time to look around Morticia’s Lab but if you should hear the terrifying klaxon, which is the wailing sound of many screaming voices, then you should know that your time on this planet has been numbered and there is no escape.

Enjoy your tour!

A Halloween card with Make It Crafty digi-stamps

When Morticia isn’t in her lab brewing and stewing she can be found hanging out with her monster pals in the Make It Crafty Mini MonstaGalz stamp set.

Her lab assistant Frankenstein, or Frankie to his friends, shoots pool with his monster gang on his days off over in the Make It Crafty MonstaBoyz set.

He doesn’t really have a speech impediment, he just likes living up to people’s expectation of an evil laboratory assistant, it was in the job description after all.

Sketched Lab equipment

They kitted out their evil lab at very competitive rates from Zombie Kim Dellow Laboratory Equipment Supplies Ltd and their wallpaper was from the Echo Park Apothecary Collection with the extra Halloween greeting from the Artistic Outpost Haunted Halloween set.

That about wraps up our tour, thanks for coming and if you have any questions, now is the time to keep them to yourself. 

Have a safe trip home!

Uh oh! I think I hear some wailing – you might want to run to the gift shop…

Being Yourself

The thing about Bank Holiday weekends is that the following week is shorter – which is good right? Of course it is! But it does mean that I’m thinking it is Wednesday when actually it is Thursday. Am I the only one? You guys can back me on this right?

As it is Thursday and I haven’t posted since Monday I thought I would drop in and post a very quick make from my Kuretake demo last weekend.

I’ve used the ZIG Art and Graphic Twin Watercolour markers for this one, I did a subtle background watercolour wash using a ZIG Watercolour System BrusH20 and then added the splatter effect by flicking the brush tip of the markers onto the card.

The sentiment is one to try and live by isn’t it? It comes from one of the SCACD Susana Loves Oddly Sweet Monster stamps – Monster Success.

Right, I need to get some more projects finished before Thursday turns into Friday.

Have a monster Thursday.

My Time Journalling

More inky Kim today with a page from my journal. I have a number of journals on the go at the moment all of them slightly different, you have seen this one before in the Spring with a Kuretake make. What I love about this one is that it is all kraft paper which is great fun to work on.

So this page is called ‘My Time’ and you can see the gorgeous female silhouette from the Susana Loves Stamp Blank Canvas range from SCACD available over at Quixotic Paperie. She is stamped, clear embossed then over stamped with the fab clock also from the Blank Canvas range.

I’ve used the spray inks I’ve been playing with recently and stencils, but you will also spot some ink and dip pen lines and sentiment. This ink was the Kuretake Sumo ink and I’ll be talking more about this ink in some up-coming posts so keep your eyes out for that.

Just a little tip, I wanted the silhouette to really pop so once I was finished getting inky I ironed off the clear embossing.

So I thought that I would link this up with the Simon Says Show and Tell Challenge this week which is a ‘No Rules’ theme – My favourite theme!

Thanks for popping by, hope you are having some inky fun yourselves.

Ahhh! What’s up kitty cat?

SCACD Susana Loves Stamps Blank Canvas Collection

What? Thursday already? It seems like only a couple of days since the SCACD and Quixotic Paperie blog hop showcasing the new Blank Canvas Collection yet it was almost a week ago.

Well, I have another make to show you from the new range. This one uses one of the women stamps which you can find in the large kit with the women and the head silhouettes or the smaller kit with just the women both available at Quixotic Paperie.

It is a Clean and Simple mixed media make using paint and ink onto kraft.

The sentiment comes with the larger of the two kits.

Enjoy your day you all and thanks for popping in today.

Kim
