Emma by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD



Ever find an artist or stamp line you just can't get enough of? Well, that's me with Elisabeth Bell for SCACD! I am having the best time creating with these gorgeous stamps and every time I do one of them, I want to do it again in a different way. Crazy, but I can't help it. I'm totally in stamping love! And I've got Susana from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) to thank for that!

This is Emma and I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with copics and Bic markers. The gorgeous paper is from Graphic 45 and I absolutely adore it and think it's so delicate and feminine and just right for Emma. I used my dotted swiss cuttlebug folder (it's my favorite!) to give some texture to the background and added a bit of organza ribbon from my stash and this beautiful Mulberry flower from Petaloo and a touch of Smooch to her ankle bracelet and some Kaisercraft Pearls (can't decide if this or the BasicGrey Bling or my Oyster Bella Baubles are my favorite embellishment!) to the corners and spritzed her with Shimmerz Spritz in Baby's Breath. I love the sheen it gives to the card. The picture below shows it off a little bit better. I had to add some Glossy Accents to her headband and some stickles to her top and was so pleased with how she came out.


And isn't her face just the most precious thing? I could look at her for days!



I hope you enjoy this sweetie and remember you can pick Emma and the rest of the collection up from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I would love to see what everyone is making with them. I'll have another one of them up on Tuesday for our Try It Out Tuesday. Now to decide which one!

Card Ingredients:
