Release day at SCACD


Here at SCACD we've been "die"ing to mix things up! So, this month we have the launch of two awesome new Collections.
First is a fantastic new line of dies. Susana has collaborated on a collection of dies with a timeless, classic feel. Delicate and beautiful, the diecuts from these high quality wafer thin metal dies will be featuring on your projects for years to come!
Second is a wonderful new direction for SCACD. Susana is following her heart with a new line of Mixed Media stamps. For those of you who are new to the concept, Mixed Media is a style that embraces creativity and experimentation. Let SCACD take you on a new creative adventure with the Blank Canvas Collection. From the beginner to the mixed media enthusiast, these stamps will have the creative juices well and truly flowing!
Each set in the collection comprises looks, perfect for mixing it up with different techniques. Use the elements set to enhance the blank canvas silhouettes, or use them on their own for gorgeous effects.
In addition there are two fabulous set of word outlines, ready to be customized however you like! Color them in, doodle, zentangle, paper piece - go wherever your creativity takes you.
Mix it up and most importantly - HAVE FUN!

To join in on the hop you should have arrived here from Chris' blog and I know she has awesome stuff to show you, she can do mixed media like nobody's business!

First up is my card using the new "Solid blank canvas woman" and one of the set of three "Wings" stamps. Here is the link for the new Blank Canvas Collection Stamps


 I have stamped my image on some lovely dp with a  simple background so that the stamps themselves really stand out. The image and the new "SELF" stamp (they come in a set of four ) are stamped in vintage photo distress ink and then I painted over the woman image with Luminarte silk "Pomegranite" and then I painted some of the "Solar Gold" on the side of her. When they blended it almost creates a reddish/deep golden orange color that is just stunning. I hope you are able to see some of it in this photo.  I also used some of the Solar Gold on her wings to give them a bit of sparkle.

Next I made a little sewing kit using two of our new dies, one is from the "Classic  Corners" set and the next is the "Ribbons and Bows Dressform" die.  Here is the link to see all of the new Dies by SCACD

I have used a small tin from the local craft store that you would put a gift card in, covered with some  dp and then used the new corner die which I embossed with silver powder and the gorgeous new dressmaker die which I then embellished with some Rouge liquid pearls. I am going to put some pre threaded needles, safety pins and a small pair of scissors in there and keep it at my desk. Alright, make sure you hop over to Kim's blog next, I can't wait to see what she made myself! 


You can also go to the Follow Your Heart blog for a complete list of everyone in the hop and if you are international don't forget all of these products will be available at Quixotic Paperie.  Here is a direct link for the Dies by SCACD at Quixotic Paperie.
