Celebrating all seasons with So Suzy Stamps

Hi everyone, don’t you love when you can just play? Crafting is my stress relief and my favorite part about crafting is when I can just let loose and let my imagination take over. No thinking about how to align things or which supply to use… just grabbing things randomly and playing with it πŸ™‚ This is how these cards came together. I just started playing with these water color powders and created several backgrounds. I mixed always two colors together, sprinkled a little powder onto my new hot press water color paper (which I fell in love with!)… … …

So Suzy Stamps water color inspiration

So Suzy Stamps Watercolor Inspiration

It’s the time of the month – design team inspiration, yay πŸ™‚ The design team came together and created some really beautiful cards – most of them with the latest release. But I realized that I haven’t used the tulips from the release before yet, so I wanted to put them into a water color design. I started by creating a mask for the bouquet, because I wanted to stamp it a couple of times to the bottom part of my card. Then I stamped the first bouquet, heat set it with clear embossing powder and then covered it with …

Simple Christmas card using Distress Oxide and So Suzy Stamps

Simple Christmas card with Distress Oxide and So Suzy Stamps

Welcome to a new design team inspiration over at the So Suzy Stamps blog. The team prepared some amazing cards using the latest Christmas release. I tried myself on a simple Christmas card using Distress Oxide and the interesting part is that I used them to color on black cardstock. But from the beginning… It took me a few tries to figure out how to color this Poinsettia without ruining the white lines from the embossing powder.
