This weekend we are gearing up for the SUPER BOWL....I tell you I am not a huge football girl but when the GREEN BAY PACKERS are in the Super Bowl you can bet that I will be watching...for those of you who don't know I only live an hour away from Green Bay...I work and go to school in Green Bay so I am a true fan!!!! I have my Rodger's jersey all set to wear that day...hopefully I can get all my homework done before the big game!
Now onto my fun for today....soooo DID YOU HEAR.....
SCACD has some FANTASTIC NEW STAMPS available today! OMG these are all adorable and I tell ya I have been coloring like crazy having so much fun with all of these newbies! Sooooo......if you are here from the fabulous Elaine's Blog then you are in the correct spot! If not....head over to the SCACD Blog to start at the beginning of our fantastic hop....TRUST ME you don't want to miss a stop along the hop! Plus there are prizes to be won!!!
Kim in Awe by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD! She is a part of the Spring Sampler by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD! Isn't she precious? I am so thrilled and excited to tell you that this cutie pie was named after moi! I was thrilled beyond words when Susana told me that this sweetie was named after me! Isn't she sooooo cute how she's exploring new things....yep takes after me....as I love exploring new things...from the wonderful world of accounting, to different crafting items, to books....everything I tell ya! So that is the story behind Kim! ;) Thanks again Susana...you truly have blessed me with your friendship (heart ya lots!)
Now, enough of my babbling in excitement and back to my card! The papers are from the wonderful Bo Bunny Crazy Love (hurry and get yours as it's 15% off right now!) I love this pad as it's all full of brown and pink combinations....as many of you know my favorite color combo! lol!
Kim in Awe as been colored with Copics and accented with a White Gel Pen. I also too my Sakura star dust pen and accented the folds in her dress and on her bow to add a soft subtle glimmer to the image! The background has been airbrushed with my Copic ABS while it was still in the SB Labels 9 die to get the crisp white edge!30mm Wild Rose, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, 8mm semi-opened rosebuds, and 4mm closed rosebuds.
Hearty Lightweight Air Dry Clay that Susana carries! This stuff is absolutely AMAZING and easy to work with! At first when I got it I was thinking it was going to be hard to use....but it's so fun and easy and LOVE it for embellishments because when it dries (I let mine dry overnight)it really is lightweight...I think my paper flowers are way more heavy then the clay! I found my flower mold on etsy but Susana has some SUPER FUN products for clay which you can find, -->here<--! Then I took my Viva Decor Lilac Pearl Pen (of course after the clay is dry) and coated the clay to make it colorful! My next venture is to try the AMAZING Viva Decor Percious Metal Paints on the clay...I think this will be out of this world gorgeous!!!
I hope you have enjoyed my card and my namesake stamp! The layout and design of my card was inspiration from the fabulously talented Claudia Rosa! I so adore her work and you can find the card that she made that inspired me here.
Now if that wasn't enough I have ONE MORE card to share with you today! By now you are probably getting sick of reading my LONGGGG post....but trust me....if you hang in there until the end you will be pleasently surprised....as I think there's a chance to win some fabulous candy....*wink wink*
Celebrate by Victoria Case for SCACD! Oh my word is this such a fun stamp! I seriously have tons of ideas floating around in my head of what I want to create with this stamp yet! The possibilities are truly endless....it can be used for a wedding card, birthday card, anniversary card, graduation card....or in this case a Welcome Baby Card! Our friends are pregnant with twin boys....we are so excited for them! She is due in April and I already have her Baby Card made for the arrival of little Blake and Alex! Papers I have used are from K&Company, .but you really need to check out the fun Best Creations Paper Packs that Susana has at the store...they are full of glittery goodness! I am soooo ordering mine this weekend!!! I think the Safari Boy and Safari Girl would sure make cute baby cards with this Celebrate stamp!
The image has been colored with Copics and accented with lots of fun products! The swirls have been accented with my Sakura star dust pen again for that soft subtle glittery effect. Then I have used Illuminate Smooch on the hearts on the bottom tier of the cake and the circles on the top tier! (Don't forget Susana has the BRAND NEW Smooch colors available now too!) The bottom tier pearls were accented with my Viva Decor Light Blue Pearl Pen and the ruffle was glittered up with my Viva Decor Hologram Glitter Liner! The centers of the flower and the candle flame were shined up with my Viva Decor Sunny Yellow Gloss Pen. And finally the top melted wax on the candle was "frosted" with my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen to make it look like the candle was really melting.
Then to make this image even MORE fun I I stamped it 3 times and dimensionalized the cake! As you can see the bottom tier is popped up 2 times, the middle layer and top layer are both popped up once. One of the little flowers on top was also popped up to make it look like it was hanging over the top cake layer! I hope I have inspired you! I soooo can't wait to create some of the other fun ideas I have for this cake and of course to share them with all of you!25mm Wild Rose, cherry blossoms, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, and blue crystal stems.
25mm Wild Rose, 15mm roses, and a stork charm.
