Sweet Veritas

Good morning! I hope you're all having a fantastic week. I wanted to share a card with you today featuring one of the gorgeous new exclusive stamps that were recently released at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. This is "Veritas" from the Adventures of Loli and Poppy collection by Sylvia Zet for SCACD. I absolutely love this entire collection of stamps...Sylvia is such a talented artist. :)

Sweet Veritas is perched upon a little snippet of a grapevine...isn't she lovely? I adore her tendrils of hair...so much fun to colour! The green paper is from Prima and the purple paper is from Basic Grey Kioshi. All the pearls were created with my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen. These pearl pens are a fantastic money saver for crafters who love to add pearls to their projects. Just one Viva Decor Pearl Pen makes a multitude of pearls in whatever size you require. Susana sells the Viva Pearl Pens for only $5.45 USD, and they are available in a wide selection of colours. (See the entire selection of Viva Decor products available at SCACD HERE.) I also added some Make It Crafty lasercut chipboard embellishments. Susana has a wonderful selection of this fantastic highly detailed chipboard (and Make It Crafty Stamps) HERE. I painted these ones with white craft paint, sprayed them with some Glimmer Mist and topped them off with a generous sprinkling of Glamour Dust.


Veritas was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with Copic markers.  Stardust Stickles were applied to the ruffle of her dress.


Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E35, E37, E59  Dress: R81, R85, V12, V15, V09, C5  Grapes: V01, V12, V15, V09, C5, C7  Leaves: G20, G21, G85, G99, C5, YG91 (I added this over top to tone down the vibrancy and to create more of a "mossy" green)  Vine: E25, YG91, YG95, G99

The Adventures of Loli and Poppy collection is available exclusively at SCACD and at Quixotic Paperie for our friends in the UK. You also have a few options for purchasing these stamps: they are available for individual purchase, as two seperate sets of four main image stamps or as a complete set of all eight stamps. When choosing to buy the stamps as a set, you will be receiving them at a discounted price...and as an added bonus, there is an accessory stamp for each set that is ONLY avialable when purchasing the stamps as sets!

***SCACD NEW PRODUCT ALERT***

Susana is always adding new crafty goodies to SCACD...have you seen some of the latest additions?!
Susana's prices really are incredible. Seriously, just LOOK at the prices of her paper pads for example! Not only will you be thrilled with the money you will save, but Susana also offers fast and very friendly customer service. And remember, SCACD isn't only for stampers and scrapbookers...Susana also stocks a variety of "artsy" products for those of you interested in painting, mixed media or other creative outlets. (ie: canvases, various paints, jewelry findings, etc.) So I encourage you to grab a cup of your favourite beverage, get comfy and spend some time perusing the SCACD website.
Hope you all have a wonderful day, and thanks for your visit. :)

Blessings,

Melanie
