Playing with my new Viva Las Vegas Stamps

Playing with my new Viva Las Vegas Stamps

Do you know that? You see a stamp company and you can’t stop looking at their stamps, but you never click the buy button? Maybe because you don’t really know how to use them or maybe because you’re intimidated by these gorgeous images? Well, that happened for me when I was looking at Viva Las Vegas stamps. For months I was following their design team, checking out new releases and tried to figure out how I can incorporate them into my art. Then I finally went to their store when I was in Las Vegas and ordered a handful. During …

Watch me get fabulous – a snarky card with So Suzy Stamps

Watch me get fabulous - So Suzy Stamps snark

Who is ready for some snark from the latest So Suzy Stamps release? When I saw the “Watch me get fabulous” stamp I had to giggle quite a bit. Haven’t we all been in that situation at one point? I know I had that thought a couple of times in my life πŸ˜› This card is rather simple and I’m kind of surprised that I was capable of leaving that much white space. But let’s start at the beginning. I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock. For sentiments, I prefer Versafine ink. It’s deep black and leaves a crisp …

So Suzy Stamps and Distress Oxide - Snarky is part of the package

Have you seen the new release from So Suzy Stamps yet? There are a few snarky stamps as well and you know me – I can’t resist some good snark. I paired the new Snarky is part of the Package stamp with the rose and rose trio from an earlier release, but see for yourself. I hope you’re not sick of me using the Distress Oxide, because there is another card coming πŸ˜‰ This time, I used them to color the roses in two different ways. The outside of the card with the ink resist technique and the inside by …

how to become a pirate with So Suzy Stamps

Arrrr, you land lovers! It’s inspiration day over at So Suzy Stamps and I grabbed one of the stamps that is back in the store – the pirate πŸ˜€ You probably know by now that I love the Distress Oxide, but what I love even more is the combination of Distress Ink and Oxide. It’s the mix of vibrancy and rusty that really gets me πŸ˜› That’s why I created a set of cards for you using both, Distress Inks and Oxides, water and some acetate. Enjoy! I hope you enjoyed my cards and are not mad that I didn’t …

Snark alert with So Suzy Stamps

Snarky cards with So Suzy Stamps

Snark alert! I haven’t used my snarky stamps for a while (way too long if you ask me), so I directly created three snarky cards πŸ˜€ A few days ago I found a pretty paper pack at a garage sale. I love combining patterned paper to create cards, especially snarky ones. I started with cutting a few of the papers. Then I picked the ones that I wanted to be at the top and stamped the sentiment using my Misti. For this card, I cut a little banner to stamp one part of the sentiment onto it. Then I stamped …
