SCACD celebrates today the 2 recently released NEW exclusive rubber stamp sets.  They are the Brave Hearts (a group of 4 empowered gals) as well as Eclectic Collection 2 (a combo of 6 steampunk and ethereal stamps).  With the Eclectic 2 collection if you buy the entire set you get 4 FREE date stamp words!!  SCACD Artist Carmen Medlin and Susana collaborated on the images and we are so happy to be showcasing them to you now :D

Now available for purchase in the USA HERE for the Brave Hearts and Eclectic 2 sets.

Our International Friends can purchase SCACD rubber stamps at Quixotic Paperie HERE.

SCACD Digital images for USA and International can always be found HERE.

I am excited to share an image from each collection with you today.  First up from the Brave Hearts is Fearless.  I am in love with all 4 of these cuties and their great accompanying sentiments.  The brick background is paper from the Authentique paper pack - Durable.

Next up is the Lotus from The Eclectic Collection 2.  I used the Lotus on my art journal pages and wanted to have it represent new beginnings with the words coming out from the Lotus blooms.  The "created on" in the bottom left is one of the 4 date stamp words that you get free when you purchase the entire set.

 For the words, I used the sentiments that come with the Brave Hearts and several from the 2 different Words Sets "SELF" and "AUTHENTIC" that are part of the Mixed Media Blank Canvas Collection.

You should be going next to Roni's BLOG.  I am certain that she has something amazing to share with you.  Be certain you leave her some love when you swing through.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of participating BLOGs on the Store BLOG site HERE.

31 Days of halloween - Day 31

Caw, Caw! It's the most wonderful day of the year....
Caw, Caw!!  

 Vincent and I are so excited!  Today, TODAY, is HALLOWEEN!  Yeah!!  It is the bestest day of the year (take that grammar police!)  In honor of it being not only Halloween, Smeared Ink Friday and the last of the 31 Days of Halloween Alex has created a puzzle piece using a great image from the Smeared Ink Quoth the Raven Set

For those of you who might not realize it... this is a heart.  Yes, this is what they are truly shaped like.  Obviously, this image is part of the set because of the "other " Edgar's work, The Tell-Tale Heart.

Well, we won't keep you.  We have some candy to eat celebrating to do.  Enjoy the last day of creations and have a fantabulous time (grammar police, you are on my list today....) with the other Wicked Bloggers!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 30

Happy day before Halloween!!  CAW CAW!!  We are almost to Halloween!!! We made it!!!

Vincent and I both say hello.  I am trying to get him to learn about the puzzle piece Alex has for us today, but can't get him to stop eyeballing the camera.  He keeps saying 'but I know they want to see my face'.  Can you see my level of being impressed?

Ok- onto the creation, this one you are going to love.  Honestly, Vincent should love it so not certain what his problem is - well I am, but pretty certain I would be censured.

I know, right?  The night sky, the jack-o-lantern, even the owl in the tree (although it would be better with a raven, the owl works).  Dang that Alex and her distress ink pads.  She really is getting some inky fingers and having fun.  There has been a big discussion here and she will be continuing the puzzle pieces into November and the assembled project.  However, she may not post daily.  I have also begged to be allowed to continue to host, and......she said YES!!  Only for the puzzle pieces, but hey, I can work with that.  AND NO VINCENT!  CAW, CAW!!!

Have fun checking out the creations from the rest of the Wicked Bloggers (list on the right sidebar) on this second to last day of the 31 Days of Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of halloween - Day 29

Happy Wednesday to you - aka - Hump Day- right?  Halfway through the work week!  Mine too and as much as I am dreading the return to the cage, the relief from this mentoring gig is welcome.

Vincent and I would like to present to you another puzzle piece.  This one has been created to look like the wall paper that Alex would love having in a sitting room.  Alex has quite the sitting room designed in her head -and on Pinterest.  Wallpaper with this look, purple, sparkles and skulls, is exactly what she would like.

The background paper is from an older Kaisercraft collection and the skull image from Inkadinkado, and one of the earliest skull images she purchased, but still one of her favorites.

Have a fabulous hump day and jump on over to see the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, making it an even better day!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 28

Today's post almost did not happen.  There were some ruffled feathers, and then, some ruffled feathers, if you know what I mean.  Vincent has decided he doesn't need to ask to wear my hats, that he can just take what he wants.  That resulted in a beat down, brawl, fight, tussle, discussion without much resolution at the moment.  I can say that Vincent has a new... shall we say respect, for me at this time and we are both counting down the days to his departure.

Now - onto why you are really here.  To see what Alex has created and we are sharing with you today!

This puzzle piece is a fun one with a family portrait to share.  Wouldn't it be great if all our walls had family portraits like this on them?  Sharing the skeletons in our closets with the world?  caw, caw :)

Have fun at the other Wicked Bloggers and leave them some love.  I know there is a lot of hard work being put into this for your viewing pleasure.  Excuse me while I deal with my student.

Happy Halloween

31 Days of Halloween - Day 27

Happy Monday to you!  I am already having an ....eventful day.  Oh, and do you see what you have done?  Do you see it?

How could you miss it really?  Vincent has decided that he must wear fancy dress hats -mine you know and now you will never see me in my full glory again.  Vincent takes up the entire frame except for that teeny tiny sliver there on the right.  I know, just tragic isn't it!?

OK- now that we have discussed the main issue of the day, onto Alex's creation to share.  This is another image from AuroraWings by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.  The name of this image is Madness.

I know that Alex had a very enjoyable time coloring this image.  She really finds coloring to be relaxing -give her more of that please, the girl needs to relax!  She is currently attempting to work her way through the collection of images she already owns (Caw, caw, caw, caw... oh excuse me, I couldn't stop laughing at that one), but I am certain that more will be added to the list as she goes.

We are down to the final week of 31 Days of Halloween and I -and Vincent- have certainly enjoyed your company this month.  Time to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers listed on the side bar and their creations for today.

Happy Halloween!
