Folk Art Fun!

Happy TGIFriday folks!  Its the weekend whoot whoot..its been a long week! We have a busy Saturday picking out new carpet for the basement (due to the flood) and paint for the walls so we can get that underway.  And of course its SuperBowl Sunday.  This is the first time in years we haven't had a party or gone somewhere fun for that day...but I'm tired LOL. Sitting at home with a few friends and eating some nomnoms is about all the effort I feel like making this year.  Plus I don't care who wins although I am leaning towards the Broncos...last year the Ravens played so we had a bit more vested interest ;) 

Anywho, hope you have a great weekend and stay warm.  I have some new posts on my other blog here in case you missed those...including concert pics from last weekend!



Earlier this month SCACD released the Montage collection of rubber stamps, a total of 26 rubber stamps with a contemporary yet classic look that will make them a fantastic addition to your stamping toolbox for years to come.  
They are available now for purchase HERE both in full sheets and as smaller sets. 
SCACD has also unleashed 12 fun and fresh SCACD Digital images for purchase HERE.

The SCACD Design Team along with some very cool guests have created a truly fun filled hop showcasing the new SCACD digital and rubber stamps. If you missed part of the hop list then check out all the details at the Store Blog today!

International Customers:

The digital images can be purchased HERE. 
The new rubber stamps can be purchased at QUIXOTIC PAPERIE for our International Friends.


Today I'm using this beautiful digi "Folk Art Bird" from Carmen Medlin for SCACD. You gotta check out all these beautiful digis (oh the cats & whale are more of my faves) fun to color and use on all kinds of projects.  I wanted mine to look a bit like a Delft China piece so I kept the colors monochrome in blue and white.  

If you came to my blog via Alaine then you are on the right track...scroll to bottom of post to see who to hop along to next!

My project was inspired by the beauty of Delft China

My papers are from Bazzill these monochromatic color paper pads! The window frame die and small scroll is from Spellbinders/HeartFelt. I distressed most of my papers and image a bit. I layered some flowers and white cheesecloth in each corner.  And some pretty pearls finish everything off nicely.

Little Birdie is colored with Copics: B39,B37,B34 and B21.
Then I added some Stickles, pearls and white Sharpie poster paint marker.
I lightly stamped a text stamp around the image in baby blue as well.

That's all from me you need to hop on over to 

Have a great weekend!
