Video: My First Galaxy Sky Background with So Suzy Stamps

Galaxy Sky Background with So Suzy Stamps

I got inspired by Justine’s amazing astronaut card and her galaxy sky background. I have never tried it before, because I thought it’s too difficult. After watching her creating this cute card, I just had to try it and I’m glad I did. It’s not the prettiest galaxy sky background in the world, but I tried something new πŸ˜€ I also let the camera run while inking everything. Enjoy! What do you think about the Nuvo embossing powder? Is that neat or what? πŸ™‚ Don’t forget that So Suzy is celebrating her birthday. That means you get special treatment this …

Anti Valentines Card with So Suzy Stamps, Distress Inks and Distress Oxide

Happy Valentine’s Day! Are you celebrating or do you think that it is one of those unnecessary days? Fair warning upfront: I’m not huge on Valentine’s day, so I decided to create a rather snarky anti-valentine’s card. I found a great sentiment at So Suzy Stamps that fit to my “love” for Valentine’s day, so I grabbed my masking paper and Distress Inks and started blending some ink. A video might be nicer for you to see the process, so I created one vs writing a long love letter πŸ˜‰ Again, I understand that not everyone shares my humor. I …
