Young Alexa from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD!

It's here! Release day for Elisabeth Bell for SCACD! Our design team has had the greatest time and put in so much work to get ready to present these fresh, enchanting images for you! Make sure you get over to Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and pick up the entire set! They're just breathtaking and I want all of you have as much fun with them as I am!

My daughter Tiffany used to drag books around with her and she would sit and make up her own stories and read them to everyone. I thought she was so smart and learning so quickly until I realized that she had memorized a couple of books I would read over and over to her and was reciting to her animals instead or reading! This Young Alexa so reminds me of her sitting with her stuffed animals around her. What precious memories those are for me. Isn't she just the cutest thing? She's named after our talented and generous Design Team Leader, Suzanne Dean's daughter who is a gorgeous young lady in her own right!

Young Alexa was stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black and colored with copics on GinaK's Luxury paper. Love that stuff! I followed SCS's sketch and thought it was perfect for this cutie pop! I added some glaze to the bear's nose and to her poocket and around the bunny's bib. The paper is Lemonade from BasicGrey and I used my textured and dotted swiss cuttlebug folders to add a bit of texture and some Scrapper's Floss to hold the charm on. My EK Success Retro punch was used for the flowers, touched up with stickles and Kaisercraft pearls were in the middle and on the corners. I inked a bit around the edges of the image and I'm just taken by her.

I am having the stamping time of my life while presenting these magical babies for you. Don't think I'm finished with them either! I still have lots left to share with you over the next few days. Make sure to get over to Susana's and pick up your sweeties and start sharing with us all. I can't wait to see what all you have up your sleeves!

Card Ingredients:

Young Alexa from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD, Lemonade paper from BasicGrey, Kaisercraft Pearls, cuttlebug folders, EK Success Retro flowers, stickles,

Lovely card. My dd used to do the same thing - recite instead of read, but she has her masters now so I guess she got the hang of it.

Suzanne J Dean said...

Aww, she's such a cutie Susan! Of course she's my fave (I'm not biased, lol)! You showcased her beautifully!
