I just can’t get enough of Ken Oliver Color Bursts

Finished Card

Hello everyone! I’m up on the So Suzy blog and wanted to share a final card for August. No worries, not final as in never again, just final as in the last Design Team Card for this month πŸ˜‰ This card is featuring the new “Love is a fire” sentiment from the latest So Suzy Stamps release and, because I can’t get enough of Ken Oliver color bursts, two of the first colors. I started by die cutting two square pieces of card stock for the sentiment. One piece is white and has the MFT wonky borders on it, the …

What the Hell with So Suzy Stamps

what the hell

“What the hell?” is probably what you thought when you saw the title of my blog post πŸ˜‰ Maybe not, but I agree so much with the sentiment of the featured stamp for my So Suzy blog post today that I just had to add it. What the hell? Why are the Distress Inks on my image all sideways? I must have slept while taking the picture. Or did I just wanted to have another reason to say “what the hell?” πŸ™‚ Anyway, I started with the ink blended background. I used a Dylusions stencil for the cherries and blended …

Lauren Bacall Wedding Card with So Suzy Stamps

Hello everyone, today we are all up on the So Suzy blog with the new August release stamps. Woot, woot πŸ™‚ My Lauren Bacall wedding card features an older stamp with one of the new and gorgeous sentiments (the one from Lauren Bacall… taadaa πŸ˜‰ ). I used the “In Love” wedding couple and paired it with the “Heart Forget” sentiment. Everything started by stamping the couple directly onto an A2 sized card base. It is a solid image, so a Misti comes in really handy here. I stamped the same image onto some masking paper (I use the one …

It Was Not My Lips You Kissed, But My Soul.

its not my lips you kissed

Hello, I’m up on the So Suzy Blog with a new Design Team card, woohoo! I created a similar card for the birthday of my Design Team friend Olesya last month and thought that you might enjoy it. This one doesn’t use a birthday greeting though, but the beautiful sentiment “It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.” from Judy Garland. I started by heat embossing the Blowing Butterfly Tree. Now I blended four Distress ink colors over the entire card panel. I went back and forth with the colors a couple of times till I had the …

Celebrating July 4th with So Suzy Stamps

Celebrating July 4th with So Suzy Stamps 2

Today I’m celebrating July 4th with So Suzy Stamps. First I needed a patriotic background. To create that, I used Adirondack alcohol inks, in particular the set that you can get at Hobby Lobby or Michael’s. That has all the colors you need in them. I started with the red and dropped a little bit of ink onto the felt blending tool along with the blending solution. Now I carefully wiped it over the paper (also included in the set) and created the stripes. I left the top left corner empty to add the blue ink here. I also added …
