Victoria Case for SCACD - Spotlight Day 4

Happy Hump Day!!!!
I hope your week has been WONDERFUL!!!!

Today is Designer Showcase Day #4 for the AWESOME and soon-to-be-released "Sweet Meets Sassy Collection #2" by Victoria Case for SCACD:) Let me tell you this collection has something for everyone!!! Actually, it is two collections rolled into one - "Hearts & Hugs ~ The Fun Collection" AND "Retro Crew Collection #2"...but you know Susana, if you purchase both complete sets (Sweet Meets Sassy Collection #2)...you will get MUCH MORE for your MOOLAH!!! These wonderful stamps will be available for purchase on Friday, June 24th!!! And we will be showcasing a new stamp everyday until Release Day, but you will have to check the STORE BLOG to see which two designers will be spotlighting a new stamp:)


Today, Crystal and I have the pleasure of introducing you to "Rosie"!!!! Isn't she BEAUTIFUL?!?! She reminds me of June Cleaver, and takes me back to my childhood when I used to watch reruns of "Leave It To Beaver" and "The Andy Griffith Show":)  How very appropriate for her to be one of the lovely stamps from Retro Crew Collection #2....guess that means I'm now considered a relic, I mean, retro too;)

Rosie was colored with Prismacolor markers, and the hints of *sparkle* were made with "Ice Crystal" DecoArt Ultra Fine Glitter Paint...I absolutely LOVE this paint!!! It creates the most wonderful sparkle, and you know how much I ♡♡♡ sparkle!!! The fabulous polka dot papers are from the Echo Park - Dots & Stripes from the Metropolitan Collection. I am not at all a seamstress...me and my sewing machine have a very strained relationship...but I love seeing stitching on cards! My problem was solved by the wonderful Sew Easy tool:) Now, I can add a few stitches to my cards...without having to fuss with my sewing machine! And, did you see the fun button in the blossom? That was made using the 1st Impressions "Button Set 2" Mold and Hearty Air Dry Clay. I don't have the Black Hearty Clay, so I painted it with "Onyx" Creative Inspirations Paint, and pumped up the sparkle with a coating of DecoArt Ultra Fine Glitter Paint. Clay typically intimidated the heck out of me; but, with these fab molds and this lightweight clay...I have found some new, creative toys to love:) Okay! I have gone on and on enough...sorry for the rambling. Back to today's regularly scheduled program...

Would you like a chance to win "Rosie"?

All you have to do is leave me a comment before 10 p.m. eastern time June 23rd, and your name will be added to the drawing to receive this FABULOUS stamp! AND
