Happy Birthday Suzanne!

When Justine asked if I wanted to participate in a blog hop for Suzanne how could I resist?  And did I mention there are PRIZES?
$20 So Suzy Gift Certificate from Justine Hovey.com
Bunkie Bag from Simply Charming Everyday(aka Mama)
Original MISTI from My Sweet Petunia
Just leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win! Giveaway winner announcement will be on February 22!

You should have come here from Monica Taylor's blog. 

Purple is one of Suzanne's favorite colors, so I pulled out her Tulip Flourish Stamp and some white embossing powder, and tried a little black magic technique, coloring the flowers with copic markers.  I added some texture with Nuvo Drops.

Of course no card is complete without finishing the inside.  I stamped the Ordinary Days sentiment and added a few more Tulip Flourishes in So Suzy Thistle Thicket Ink Bites.
I am proud to call Suzanne a friend! Hope today is as special as you are! 
Now head on over to the very talented Ceal Prichett's blog and see what she has created!  If you get lost, you can go back to Justine Hovey's blog and start from there.  Happy hopping!

Let Your Dreams Set Sail

Saturday, September 24, 2016

Today I'm sharing a card made with So Suzy Stamp of the Month Club September Stamp! This stamp is so fun, I decided I would turn it into a wreath.

I started with an A7 Kraft card, and cut a window out with a stitched circle die. I stamped the Coral stamp in Versa Mark using my Mini-Mist and embossed it in Nuvo Embossing Powder in Cool Jade. I stamped the So Suzy Let Your Dreams Set Sail Sentiment in Nuvo Embossing Powder Crimson.  I covered the window with a piece of vellum with a starfish paper scrap. I finished it off with a few sequins for some color.

The stamps and embossing powder are available at www.sosuzystamps.com   If anything is out of stock, be sure to sign up to be notified when it becomes available. I promise, Suzanne is so good about letting you know the moment it comes in!  Wonderful customer service is her trademark!

One in Every Color

Saturday, September 10, 2016

Hi! It's release day for the September Stamp of the Month at So Suzy Stamps!  I love this one! In fact I love it so much I got carried away and made SEVERAL variations . I got my hands on some of the new Nuvo Embossing Powder and Glitter Drops, so what's a girl to do?  I made all cards in A2 size paper, and ran the colored paper through my My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle die cut. I stamped the  September Stamp of the Month Coral Stamp  in Versa Mark for the embossed images and in Memento Grey for the Nuvo Crystal Drops.  The embossed images certainly looked the sharpest, but honestly, the texture of the Crystal Drops was very realistic looking!  Colors I used for the Crystal Drops were; Gloss Ripened Pumpkin, Blue Lagoon,   Glitter Emerald City.   Embossing powder colors were , Purple Haze Nuvo Embossing Powder  Gold Enchantment Nuvo Glitter , Nuvo Silver Embossing Powder Blue Odyssey Nuvo Embossing Powder , WOW Copper Penney and Apricot Embossing powder. 
Thanks for stopping by!

August SAM Two

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Hi! I'm showing another card today I made with So Suzy Stamp of the Month August Stamp. 

I took an A2 blue card base and added a piece of red cardstock, ran it through a Paper Studios Anchors Embossing folder, and used a MFT stitched rectangle die. 

I stamped the sentiment  in So Suzy Ink Bites in Celestial Sky, part of the Peacock Plumes collection, on a piece of white cardstock.

I had some nautical-themed paper and cut some diamond shapes with a punch I had on hand, folded them in half and threaded them onto some red and white twine. 

Come join us at the SAM Club!  It is SO much better than the big box store with the same initials! All of Suzy's stamps are made in the USA! You won't regret it!

August SAM Release

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

It's Release day at So Suzy Stamp of the Month Club!  This month's stamp is another fun one!
If you haven't joined the Stamp of the Month club, what are you waiting for?

I kept this month's card simple.  The stamp for this month is a sentiment stamp -
I started with an A2 black card base.  I cut a piece of white cardstock and stamped the Rum Stamp from So Suzy Stamps in Memento Ink, Tuxedo Black several times.  I stamped the sentiment in Versa Mark and embossed it with Nuvo Jet Black Embossing Powder.  I finished it with some Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops

That's all there is to this one!  Be sure to post your creations in the So Suzy Stamp of the Month Page!  Thanks!

Your Inner Compass

Sunday, July 24, 2016

Hi! Here's another card made with the July 2016 SAM Stamp! 

This stamp got me thinking about my own inner compass - namely that I want to be sure I am true to myself.  I enjoy being able to purchase things from local business owners and/or people who are trying to supplement their income by selling specialty products that I can purchase from the comfort of my own home.  I like to support our local economy!

So Suzy Stamps are not only local,  but they are made in the USA!!!  As a consumer, that is important to me!  OK, I will climb down off of my soap box and tell you how I made this card.

  • The stamp, of course is from the July SAM collection.  If you haven't joined yet, be sure to sign up!
  • My base is an A2 size blue card. I had some nautical paper and cut two pieces with my Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave borders. 
  • Using my Mini Mist, I stamped the Compass Stamp on a white circle using So Suzy Ink Bites in Simply Sinful,from the Autumn Equinox collection. I know I have said time and time again how much I love these inks, but it bears repeating!!!  I cleaned the stamp off and re-inked with Versa Mark, and embossed it with Nuvo Crystal Clear Embossing Powder.  I love the way these embossing powders perform!
  • I cut a circle from some window plastic, and made a shaker frame, filling it with some sequins from 28 Lilac Lane Adventures at Sea.  
  • Using my Mini Mist, I stamped the sentiment from Sherry Russ Stamplorations True North Collection with Versa Mark and embossed it with Nuvo Gacier White Embossing Powder and hit it with my heat tool.
  • I finished it off with a red, white and blue sequin.
