Try It Out Tuesday!

This is my 2nd blog post today. Please scroll down and check out my Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge card!

Welcome to another Try It Out Tuesday! This week the TIOT challenge is an awesome sketch challenge! We would love for you to play along!

Here is the sketch:

For my card this week I decided to use one of the Victoria Case fall release stamps. I have been loving all of the new Victoria Case spring collection images , but I was in need of a Cowgirl themed card and Victoria's "Taylor" image worked just perfect! Isn't she just the cutest little cowgirl ever! I just love her. I paired her up with a sentiment from Pink Cat Studio. Did you know that not only does Susana have exclusive stamp sets but she also carries popular brands like Pink Cat Studio, Our Craft Lounge, Rubber Romance, Prima and lots more! You can get all of your favorite brands along with the awesome SCACD exclusive stamps all in one stop!
I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers. My sentiment is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I paired her with with some fun DCWV designer paper and finished off my card with some American Crafts brads.

Be sure to stop by SCACD and check out all the fabulous new products! Have you been dying to try the new Viva Decor pens... Susana has tons in stock!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a terrific day!

Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge!

Welcome to this week's Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge. This week we have a 1-2-3 challenge! This time around the challenge is to use 1 BLACK item, 2 PUNCHED items and 3 CIRCLE items. We'd love for you to play along with us. If you do, be sure to leave a link to your project in the comments section of the challenge post on the JB blog or use keyword JBE099 when uploading to SCS or PCP.

For my card I sort of stretched the definition of 1 black item...I used multiple pieces of black cardstock but I'm considering cardstock in general 1 item, LOL...(I ALWAYS suck at these 1-2-3 challenges)! For my 2 punched items I punched the border of each of the 2 pieces of Basic Grey designer paper (probably a stretch again). And the 3 Basic Grey pearls count as my 3 circle items.

Try It Out Tuesday...On Sunday!

You may have noticed that there was no Try It Out Tuesday last week. Sweet Susana and her dear husband took some much needed time off, therefore the SCACD store was closed for the week. The good news is, it is back open and ready for business. To make the news even sweeter, Susana has added TONS of fabulous new products to her store...including Our Craft Lounge Stamps, Zva Creative, Copic Multiliners and lots more!

Our belated Try It Out Tuesday challenge is to create an Easter or Spring gift.
I am not typically a gifty item maker so this was definitely a challenge for me. Kisa had sent my kids some super duper cute hot chocolate boxes at Christmas and I decided to case them. For my gift box I used the ADORABLE new Victoria Case "Little Aud" stamp. She is just the sweetest thing. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers. I added some Brown Sparkly Fluff to the bunny to give him a fun furry look. I also added some Kaiser gems to the flower centers and as a pretty little earring for Little Aud. I used the Bow Easy to make that perfect bow at the top of my gift. I have always struggled with bows and the Bow Easy lets me create a PERFECT bow every single time! I love it! To finish it off I added a gorgeous Basic Grey stitched brad.

Be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the incredibly talented SCACD design team members for more inspiration!
