"Susana Loves Stamps" Release - Blog Hop

Morning guys. A very special day here, I'm glad you could stop by. We're having a blog hop to celebrate a brand new release from Susana Loves Stamps.

This gorgeous character is Angel Eyes, she is part of a four part set called Eyes of Beauty, which includes a bonus freebie accessory stamp. We all love something extra, right? ;)

This set is available from Quixotic Paperie if your're in the UK, just click HERE. If you're in the US you can order direct from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design. What are you waiting for?!

So here is the hop list, but if you get lost on your way you can head back over to the SCACD BLOG and start from the beginning.

Just as a little note on the side, for supplies and the like. I've used some scraps from Bo Bunny Gabrielle collection. I've die cut a labels four from the teal coloured paper and embossed it using a woodgrain pattern. I've adhered the other patterned papers at jaunty angles and wrapped some white polkadot organza ribbon from The Ribbon Girl around the card. I've used the Bow-Easy to create my double bow and added a little pink WOC 15mm rose. The sentiment is from an Amy R set and has been stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black - love how crisp that looks. Finally, I've used a 1" circle punch to take a chunk out of each corner. :) Job done. 

Thanks for stopping by today, and enjoy the hop!
