Winter Wonderland is HERE!

{click photo for the extra-extra large view!}

It's here!! Today is the day of the new release from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design!!! We previewed these yesterday and they are arriving TODAY - the new collection is called Victoria Case for SCACD - Winter Wonderland and they are full of winter goodness and FUN!!! Those who know me know that me proclaiming that is a pretty big deal as I am not a big fan of winter. Winter-themed stamps though? Bring 'em on! I love making pretend snow, heehee.

Without further ado...meet "Winter". Doesn't she look warm and happy? I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white cardstock, colored with Copic markers, and did some highlighting with the Ranger white gel pen when all the coloring was done. Best white gel pen evah! I think maybe I've mentioned that a time or two... I added white flock to all the fluffy parts of her coat, for those of you who don't love flock, you should try to Velvet Flock that Susana carries, it is less clumpy than other flock I've used and it goes on really well. Better yet, try the white Sparkly Fluff, it's flock with added glitz, you just can't go wrong there. As a finishing touch I made some glittery crystal snow with Frosted Lace Stickles.

I played along on a sketch challenge for today's card, this is MOJO108. You can see the sketch below (I rotated it 90 degrees clockwise). The paper is from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses and the cardstock colors I chose are Ruby Red and Baja Breeze. The clouds are made by sponging with a template (see a tutorial here).

Thanks for stopping by today! I sure hope you're loving the new Victoria Case for SCACD - Winter Wonderland stamps as much as I am (how could you not??). They are available today at the web store so head over and snag yours. Susana has the best customer service on the 'net and the fastest shipping I've ever seen! You won't be disappointed.

That's all from me today, I'll see you tomorrow! TGIF!
