SCACD Brave Hearts and Eclectic 2 Rubber Stamp Realase :-)

Hello everyone! Welcome to the SCACD CELEBRATION HOP!


Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) celebrates today the two recently released, NEW exclusive rubber stamps sets.  They are the Brave Hearts (a group of four empowered gals) as well as the Eclectic Collection 2 (a combo of six steampunk and ethereal stamps).  With the Eclectic 2 collection, if you buy the entire set you get FOUR FREE date stamp words.  SCACD Artist Carmen Medlin and Susana collaborated on the images and we are so happy to be showcasing them to you now.

Now available for purchase in the USA here the Brave Hearts and Eclectic 2 sets! 

Our International Friends can purchase SCACD rubber stamps at Quixotic Paperie here.

SCACD Digital images for the USA and International can always be found here

Susana from SCACD asked me to create some projects using some of her new stamps and I was thrilled to do so! I was so inspired that I actually made four different projects!

Be sure to go to the end of this post to find the link, so that you can travel onto the next artist in this celebration blog hop! 

ENLIGHTENMENT - Collage Journal Page
SCACD stamp used:

When I saw this stamp I immediately knew that I needed to use it on a page in my beloved collage journal.  The detail in it is so amazing and I LOVE all of the SCACD steampunk images!  They are stunning! 

I stamped the image onto white card stock and colored it in with Copic Markers and then adhered it onto the page in my collage journal.   

STUNNING - Artist Trading Card
SCACD stamp used: 

The realized that the smaller-sized Lotus flower fits perfectly on an ATC, so of course I had to make a card using it!  

I stamped the image onto 140-lb cold press watercolor paper and then colored it in with Letraset Aqua markers, some LuminArt Silks and outlined the image with a glitter gel pen.

SCACD stamp used:

I love using my faux-Midori Travelers Notebook and thought that it would be really fun to make a dashboard for it using the large Lotus!

I stamped the image onto 140 lb cold-press watercolor paperand used Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils to color it in.Then I wrote words on the petals.  It would also be neat todo some doodling on those petals or even zentangles!

TRUST - A Set of mixed-media canvases
SCACD images used:

Lots of painty goodness went onto this set of 6-inch square canvases, including acrylic paints, color sprays, stencils, Gelatos and some collage as the first layer. I stamped the images onto card stock and colored them in with LuminArt Silks. Just for fun, I used some pink, acrylic dots at the top of the flower stamens.  

Please note that the yellow background really threw off the colors of the stamped images so they appear to not be stamped well.  These stamps are great quality, finely detailed and stamp wonderfully! :-)
