Aud from Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design

The day is finally here for the release of the new Hearts and Hugs Collection 2 from Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! You can all pick up these fun images we've had the privilege of presenting to you! So go on over and order yours up. I want you to have as much fun as I've had these past couple of days and nothing makes me as happy as stamping with great stamps!

This is Aud and she's named after our beautiful and extremely talented Aud on our design team! How wonderful for her to have this great image named after her! Aud is so giving of her talents and encouraging with her support that you'd be hard pressed to find a nicer lady anywhere. Well Aud, I hope you like you!

I colored her with my copic markers and highlighted her skirt with my atyou Spica Glitter Pen. I used the SCS #243 sketch for this week. The paper is from a pack of paper called Sabrina by Making Memories and I love the pink and black together. I used some pink ribbon and the flowers are from Prima. I put a bit of Glossy Accents over her eyes to give them a more realistic look. Victoria does the greatest eyes on her images! I added some Kaisercraft Pearls in the corners and think she's just adorable!

Make sure you go over to Susana's store and pick up your set of stamps. Believe ame, you won't be disappointed!

Card Ingredients:

Aud by Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, copics, atyou Spica Pen, nestabilities, Sabrina paper pack from Making Memories, ribbon, Prima Flowers, Kaisercraft Pearls.

Sneak Peek for Hearts and Hugs Collection 2 from Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design

I love Victoria Case, adore her work! When I found out she was doing some stamps for Susana, I flipped my lid! I was over the moon because I'd picked up some of her digital stamps and had the best time coloring them. Well, here I am jumping all over the place again because we've got another release coming out tomorrow and I get to show you the cutest cowgirl in the world - Taylor!

Isn't she just too gorgeous? Look at those big eyes and those boots? Who could resist waving at this cute little cow poke as she walks around and welcomes everyone one she sees to her ranch?

She was such fun to color and I followed the Sketch Saturday's sketch. Love those gals over there! I used a bit of Smooch on her hat band and hearts and on her buckle and put a bit of Glossy Accents on her eyes and I paper pieced her shirt. I can't wait to show you the rest of the collection. They're cuteness factor is off the charts! Make sure you stop by all my Design Team buddies and see the other images in this collection.

The Hearts and Hugs Collection 2 from Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design will be available tomorrow so make sure you stop by and pick them all up! But in the mean time, make sure you stop by Follow Your Heart and sign up for Susana's great blog candy!

Sunshine N' Apples for Belles N' Whistles and Fairy 2 by Mo's Digital Pencil

Isn't this cutie just adorable? She's called Sunshine N' Apples for Belles N' Whistles. I just love her umbrella and basket. She reminds me of my Nichole and how she loved to go pick apples when she was younger.

I colored her with copics and used Glossy Accents on her apples and headband and the ribbon on her pants. I added a bit of my Spica Glitter Pen on her umbrella and the paper and brads in the middle of the flowers are from BasicGrey's Junebug collection. Love it! The flowers are Prima flowers and I had to add a bit of Stickles to them! You know how I love the stickles!

And now I have to introduce you to one of my new favorite images. Meet Fairy 2 from Mo's Digital Pencil! Isn't she just the greatest thing? I love how full of life she looks and if you ask me, she looks like she's having the time of her life! I'd love to wake up and see that lively babe sprinkiling her fun fairy dust around me!

She's colored with copics and I love this paper from the Wild Raspberry stack from K&Company. The ribbon is from my stash and I added some stickles to her wings and some glitter to her want. I think she's just perfectly charming!

Here's a picture of her gorgeous face up close. Doesn't she look like she just wants everyone to be happy and accept themselves as they are? I just love her!

And make sure to stop by Follow Your Heart for a great opportunity to win some sweet Blog Candy! We're having a sneak peek tomorrow of the New Hearts and Hugs Collection #2 for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design by Victoria Case

Try It Out Tuesday #32 - Back to School!

It feels great to be back! I feel a bit out of sorts after not participating in a couple of Try It Out Tuesdays for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, but I didn't want to miss this one! Our ever talented Suzanne Dean challenged us to create a Back to School gift so I chose to create a mini clipboard! I love how she turned out!

This is done using the sweet stamp Danni by Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. Danni is named after our very own Danni from our Design Team. She is just the sweetest and most generous spirited people you'd ever want to meet and she loves butterflies and I thought it would be great to carry that into the school year. We all need to have a little bit of whimsy in our lives! She's colored with copics and Prisma colored pencils and OMS and her wings and the butterflies are touched up with Stickles. I used a glaze pen on her ribbon and then spritzed the entire clipboard with Baby's Breath Shimmerz Spritz. The clip at the top is from Tim Holtz and is decorated with some pink and brown ribbon and has a butterfly charm hanging from the clip. Sorry you can't see it very well.

I love how her wings came out and how they just shimmer with the spritz on the top. Just way to pretty! I almost forget to tell you that I distressed the sides just a bit.

I want to welcome Carolyn Bounds and Dianne Prewitt as our two new Guest Design Team members for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! Welcome to our family and it's so great to have you here! Their work is just fabulous and I know you'll want to stop over and look at their great creations!

Make sure you hop over to the store's blog, Follow Your Heart and check out everyone else's Back to School project. You won't be sorry! And make sure you come back on Thursday to see my sneak peek for our New Hearts and Hugs Collection #2 for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design by Victoria Case! Let me tell you, they're just yummy! I can't wait for you all to see these great designs! These sweeties will be released on Friday, but there's blog candy starting on Wednesday! Oh, yes, I came back just in the nick of time!
