close up 1

Hello there, welcome to another blog post for So Suzy Stamps. This is the last one for 2016… this year was over fast, sigh. Because Christmas is approaching rather fast, I wanted to prepare a cute Christmas card for you and So Suzy’s ornament stamps are perfect for that! I started by die cutting a piece of white card stock with a square, stitched die. Then I stamped the three ornaments using the Simply Sinful ink, also from So Suzy Stamps. Now I stamped a second time with Versamark ink, so I was able to heat emboss it with the …

Stretch Your Dies And Add A Ghost

the card

Hello everyone! I’m up at the Kat Scrappiness blog with another Halloween card. To change things up a little, I used a non-Halloween sentiment to show you how you could stretch your dies too πŸ™‚ I started by die-cutting the white background piece and some black card stock with Kat’s rope die and added the Lawn Fawn house border to the black piece. Now I die-cut a mask for the moon and adhered it to the white background piece. I blended Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink back and forth till I had the coverage that I wanted. After …

Not For Easily Scared Readers – Spooky Halloween with So Suzy Stamps

Contagion

Happy Halloween everyone! I’m up on the So Suzy blog and wanted to share a simple but spooky Halloween card with you πŸ™‚ I started by cutting a black piece of card stock and preparing it with the anti-static tool. Then I stamped the Contagion stamp using Versamark ink and sprinkled white embossing powder on top. I use the Michael’s brand and love it! Tipp: to remove the white access from the anti-static tool that is especially visible on black paper, use a regular eraser and carefully “erase” the powder. The card was too black for my liking, so I …
