Stenciling with So Suzy Stamps – A March Project

Stenciling with So Suzy Stamps Close Up

We decided to make March stencil month with So Suzy Stamps, so the entire design team created cards using stencils. And they are stunning! My card is a 1-layer card. I started by stamping the roses onto some scrap paper and fuzzy cut them out (well, I used my scan’n’cut). Then I stamped the Rose trio using my Misti, masked that part off and stamped the single rose on top. Now I used both masks to cover the stamped roses and added some Abandoned Coral Distress Ink through the brick wall stencil using my Clarity Stencil Brushes. Because I had …

So Suzy Stamps Let's Remove The Warning Lables

Snarkfest is upon us and of course I’m in the middle of the festivities πŸ˜› If you would like to join us just visit our Facebook group Snarky Stampers. Till January 21st we are having a big party with snarky cards, hilarious memes and amazing prizes. Today I wanted to share a mixed media tag using one of So Suzy Stamps snarky stamps that I just couldn’t leave in her store. It says “I’m not saying let’s go kill all the stupid people. I’m just saying let’s remove all the warning labels and see what happens.” I started by applying …

Snarkfest 2017 – Second Chance Art Journal Page

Snarkfest Art Journal

Man, I haven’t shared an art journal page in forever. Shame on me! Good that we have Snarkfest going on in the Snarky Stamper Facebook group and I was in the mood for some fun. And fun always includes smearing around with paints and a snarky sentiment. In this case the “Second Chance” sentiment from So Suzy Stamps πŸ˜‰ I started by painting three different Dylusions paint onto the background, Postbox Red, Squeezed Orange, Pure Sunshine. The easiest and fastest way is by using a baby wipe and to avoid fuzzy paper with this technique, it’s best to Gesso it …

Joining the Coffee Lover Winter Blog Hop

winter coffee lover blog hop

Wow, it’s already Winter. Time for cute Christmas decoration, Peppermint Lattes, delicious chocolate and some snow (well, not for me). And to celebrate the upcoming cozy season I’m joining the Coffee Lover Winter Blog Hop with this fun Christmas card. I started by die-cutting a bunch of pieces from white card stock and the background from this amazing paper pack from Carta Bella. I just love the plaid paper in there! Red and gold always look gorgeous together, so I used the Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Golden Crystal for the snowflake pattern. The Nuvo paste dries rather quickly, maybe 30 …

Hello everyone, I’m up on the Kat Scrappiness blog again and this time with a process video πŸ™‚ I’m featuring the Clarity Stencil Brushes with this card, as I just recently got a pack and fell in love with them immediately! I like them so much better than the Ranger ink blending tool to apply Distress Ink through stencils. I’m also using a hilarious stamp set from Newton’s Nook, a Carta Bella paper pack and stencil, and a really pretty sequins mix from Kat Scrappiness. But see for yourself: I hope you enjoyed my video for this snarky birthday card …

Live Like There Is No Midnight – So Suzy Stamps Release

midnight

Hello there! It’s release day over at So Suzy Stamps and we have all sorts of great Fall themed stamps and sentiments. The No Midnight sentiment that I want to highlight today can be used for any occasion though. I started by cutting two pieces of black card stock and sponging white pigment ink through a star stencil. When I want to put ink through a stencil I like using a makeup sponge. Pigment ink needs to dry a little and that’s the reason why I rarely use it πŸ˜‰ After the ink was dry I took one of the …
