Today I’m sharing a fun card featuring an SCACD Digital Stamps image. I’m also joining in with a group of bloggers including some of the SCACD Design Team, to help showcase some of the fantastic images now available through SCACD Digital. We’re focusing on Autumn/Fall images and the spooktacular! Some people have even taken a non-spooky digital stamp and given it a creepy twist, so beware.
To check out all the creative fun on display today, grab a free digital stamp and be in with a chance at winning a prize, pop on over to the SCACD Store Blog for the full details and links to other designers.
Happy Friday! I promised I’d be back with a card to share and here I am, albeit somewhat later than I intended but what’s new?
The card I have to share today is one I’ve been meaning to put together for what seems like forever. I coloured the digital stamp image back in March, along with some other fantastic “out of this world” digis from SCACD Digital. Since the start of this month (when I sorted out a huge pile of coloured images that need to be made into cards) I have been planning to make this card. Not bad, eh?
You wouldn’t really know it from this blog, but I love flower stamps/images. I have a collection of stamps and digital images because they are perfect to use for family members who wouldn’t necessarily appreciate cute or quirky character cards. I promise that I’ll try and share a few more floral and other non-character cards here from time to time, in amongst all the character cards!
Today I’d like to share a card I created last week, at the same time as the card in my Happy with SCACD Digital post. I love how these cards turned out, so bright, bold and cheerful.
As with my previous card, the focal image is a digital stamp from the Carmen Medlin for SCACD Digital range. “Hoverfly” is another fun image for going all out with bright colours, or you could go grungey and creepy. Either way – FUN!
Over the weekend I took a break from work and my epic “To Do” list and had a little crafty playtime “just because”. I knew I wanted to play with one of the new Zen Beauties fairies from SCACD Stamps, so I picked “Serenity” and made the rest up as I went along.
I stamped the image using a pale ink on Make it Colour Blending card so I could colour it using the “No Lines” technique (see end of post for more info and links to other examples). Because I intended to airbrush the background, I also stamped the image in black on scrap paper to cut out and use as a mask.
As promised, I’m getting back to my colouring and card-making now that all the new furniture has been delivered and organised. I’ll give you a little tour of my new office/craft space soon, just need a couple of little extras to get it fully organised *cough* Ikea trolley I’ve been admiring for months *cough*.
For now, here’s one I DIDN’T create earlier! The second card to be completed in the new house. Whoo! Several others were completed over the weekend, and I’ll be sharing them in due course.
I’ve been on a bit of a The Greeting Farm (TGF) stamping/colouring binge. They were one of my first character stamp loves, and I have been making some time to play with them because they just make me happy.
SCACD Artist Carmen Medlin and Susana collaborated on the images and 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.
I know, I’ve been quiet recently. We’ve been under the weather here, and getting things done has been an uphill struggle. Onwards and upwards though, so although I don’t have a card to share today, I’d like to share some colouring fun!
I have coloured several of the new images, but today I’d like to share a couple of my favourites with you. Like many people I have a real soft spot for Alice in Wonderland, so I was particularly thrilled to colour these up!
First up, Alice herself.
Amazing, isn’t she? I love the beautiful faces that Carmen illustrates.
Here’s her pal, the Mad Hatter. I had so much fun colouring him.
As I mentioned above, you can find this pair and some other fantastic and fun new images over in the SCACD Digital section over at Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design. If you haven’t checked the selection out before, make sure you grab your beverage of choice and settle in for a good browse, there are lots of awesome images available, with something to suit most tastes!
