Blog hop to celebrate the SCACD new release!

Hello everyone!  Today we are celebrating the March stamp release from Susana's Custom Art And Card Design!


The Quixotic Paperie design team (that includes me!) and special guest Jane Johnson have the honour to join up with the SCACD design team for this blog hop to celebrate the release of some fantastic new stamps from artist Victoria Case.   This time Victoria has illustrated some stunning ladies - The Bonitas and some super fun Retro Girls!

You should have hopped to me from Dianne Prewitt, but if not then the first blog on the hop you need to go to is Crafts By Kim.

For my make I have used Victoria Bonita by Victoria Case - isn't she beautiful?  As soon as I saw her I wanted to do something really elegant with her - and a French style seemed a perfect fit!
 
 

I am definitely going to try her out with a Spanish style, Mexican style and an English rose style!  I teamed her up with my oh so luscious BasicGrey Curio paper pad, used Shimmerz Paints in Evergreen and Coffee (which are 25% off at the moment!) to distress the edges and give it a shimmer (obviously!) and used my Bazzill Basic Jewel Template in Mystical Flourish with 4mm cream flat backed pearls.

For those of you in the UK and EU you can get this and the other lovely Victoria Case stamps from Quixotic Paperie. For those of you in Canada and USA check out Susana's Custom Art And Card Design!

You now need to hop off to the lovely Lori Aragon!  Enjoy the hop!


I am submitting my card into Crazy 4 Challenges to use flowers and the Sweet Stampin challenge for oh so girly!

What a great card!!!
I just wonder to whom you're saying "you're fabulous!"... because "mon ami" means "my friend", but only if the friend is a boy/man (if it was a girl it would be written "mon amie")... and "mon ami" is my friend, NOT my love... He he want to know more...

Frea said...

Wow and double wow! This is just stunning - love the idea of being able to apply a different "style" to the image (and as a French teacher I like the one you've chosen!)
