Elisabeth Bell for SCACD new release BLOG HOP!

Hello and welcome to the SCACD release day BLOG HOP!

We have all been dying to show you the gorgeous new collection by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Stamps - Sampler Edition #5, and we know you've been just as eager to see them!

There is a fabulous line up for you today, with the SCACD Design Team, the Quixotic Paperie Design Team and our very special guest - Susanna Boyd of CardoftheWeek and Papercraft Planet! Lots of lovely inspiration!

The new collection is now available over at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design in the Elisabeth Bell section! And for those of you in the UK/Europe, the collection is also available at Quixotic Paperie, in stock and ready to go!

You should have hopped over here from  Danni's gorgeous blog.

If you're only just joining us, you may want to start at the beginning over on Suzanne Dean's Blog, as you definitely don't want to miss any of the gorgeous creations! If you get lost at any point, or just want a recap on all the info, pop on over to the SCACD Store Blog!

I have used the adorable 'Howdy' for my creation today:

'Howdy' was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copic Ciaos.  I used some fabulous Basic Grey 'Max and Whiskers' paper, as I thought the colours went really well with this image!  (My paper is a piece of 12x12, but you can grab the 6x6 Max and Whiskers pad HERE from Quixotic Paperie).  I sanded the Core'dinations 12x12 Colorcore card, and inked around the edges of the SU Kraft cardstock with my Jumbo Java versamagic dew drop pad.  I used some SU linen thread to loop around the brads, and finally added some of the fabulous Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Adage Tickets to finish!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Truly Scrumptious Challenge #35 - I have followed this fab sketch!
2. BasicGrey Challenge #22 - Colour Combo (there is a bit of orange on my card, but perhaps I can get away with it being a 'shade' of brown, LOL?)
3. Totally Gorjuss Challenge #35 - Sugar & Spice
So now it's time for you to hop on over to the fabulous Alex's blog ... but of course I'd love it if you left a comment first!! ;o)

Thanks so much for hopping along with us today!  I hope you enjoy the new release!
