SCACD Stamps Sylvia Zet & Victoria Case Release Hop!

So, it has been a little while!  Huge apologies for my absence – I spent the last few weeks struggling to keep up with work etc while being unwell.  I won’t go into any details today, as I have something far more interesting and fun to share, but I will be back with another post over the weekend.

In the meantime, I am thrilled to be joining my old team-mates at SCACD for a fun new release hop!  Today sees the release of some gorgeous new stamps from two popular artists – Sylvia Zet and Victoria Case.

The new stamps are all now available in the US at SCACD and also in the UK/EUROPE at Quixotic Paperie!

If you’re just joining us and would like to start the hop from the beginning (and you really should!), pop on over to the SCACD Store Blog for the full hop list!

You should have hopped over here from the lovely DONALDA’S BLOG.

Unfortunately, because I’ve been unwell for the last few weeks, I haven’t been able to colour and craft (yep, having withdrawal symptoms!).  I’ve been feeling better over the past few days, so I did manage to colour one of the new Sylvia Zet stamps to share with you, but a finished card was apparently too much to ask!

I think you’ll agree though, this image is gorgeous enough all on her own!  Meet ELANIA!

SCACD Stamps - Sylvia Zet - Elania available at www.quixoticpaperie.co.uk

Definitely my favourite (just), and so much fun to colour.

I coloured her with ShinHan Touch Twin markers on Make it Colour Blending Card (colour map below).

Your next stop on the hop is lovely LORI’S BLOG.  Happy hopping and happy shopping!

2011 In Review

The festivities are almost over, along with the year, and we’re all looking back over 2011, getting ready to look forward to what 2012 will bring.  As usual, I didn’t complete anywhere near what I wanted to do this Christmas in terms of crafty projects.  I have, however, achieved something more important – I have relaxed and enjoyed.  So, I’m not going to beat myself up for not sharing more here on my blog this December, I just hope you all had as nice and relaxing a Christmas as we did here!

I do love looking back at the year and sharing my personal favourite creations.  So, like my lovely friend Kim Dellow, I’m here to share my favourite makes from 2011.  Click the links above each pic to check out the original posts and get product details if you want them, and click on the photos to see a larger version.

Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Stamps – New Friends.

This is one of my favourite stamps, and I was particularly pleased with how the card turned out!

Definitely among my favourite stamp releases from 2011, I loved colouring this little scene.

Mo’s Digital Pencil – Pirate Scene

One of my favourite things to do when stamping and colouring is create little scenes, and this one was a lot of fun to put together!

Carmen Medlin for SCACD Stamps – The Travellers

One of the most gorgeous stamps added to my collection in 2011.  I absolutely adore Carmen Medlin’s stamps from SCACD, and this is a particular favourite.  I was particularly pleased with how this card turned out as I coloured the image with Distress Inks rather than my usual alcohol based markers!

Paper Makeup Stamps & Make it Crafty stamps merged circus scene.

Definitely one of my colouring highlights from 2011.  This one took a while, but I was so pleased with how it turned out.

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps – White Rabbit

December has been a pretty lean month on the blog here so there wasn’t much to choose from, but I do love this card, and I am a sucker for Alice in Wonderland themed images/papers!

You may have heard that some of Sylvia Zet’s “Wee Stamps” digital images have now been released in yummy rubber by Whimsy Stamps.  They are available in the UK, at Quixotic Paperie in the Whimsy Stamps section!

Today I have a card to share featuring one of the new stamps – Silver Fairy – she’s one of my favourites.

Hope You Can Cling To - Splitcoast Stampers

I actually created this card for a challenge on Splitcoast Stampers, being hosted by the lovely Bev Gerard.  The challenge is “Looking In On You!” and Bev has asked us to to create a “window” card as part of the Hope You Can Cling To event that is going on this month in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.  Here’s a link to the Looking In On You challenge thread – SCS: Hope You Can Cling To – Looking In On You – pop over and check it out!

The yummy designer papers are Marianne Designs “In The Meadow”.  The chipboard is from the Make it Crafty Butterfly Leaves pack.  The “Hope” sentiment is from the Flourishes LLC “Fight Like a Girl” stamp set.  I also used the Whimsy Stamps Lavish Flourishes set to lightly ink the edges of the heart tag and image layer.  The card opens out to reveal a heart shaped layer for a message behind the main image.
