Your Inner Compass

Sunday, July 24, 2016

Hi! Here's another card made with the July 2016 SAM Stamp! 

This stamp got me thinking about my own inner compass - namely that I want to be sure I am true to myself.  I enjoy being able to purchase things from local business owners and/or people who are trying to supplement their income by selling specialty products that I can purchase from the comfort of my own home.  I like to support our local economy!

So Suzy Stamps are not only local,  but they are made in the USA!!!  As a consumer, that is important to me!  OK, I will climb down off of my soap box and tell you how I made this card.

  • The stamp, of course is from the July SAM collection.  If you haven't joined yet, be sure to sign up!
  • My base is an A2 size blue card. I had some nautical paper and cut two pieces with my Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave borders. 
  • Using my Mini Mist, I stamped the Compass Stamp on a white circle using So Suzy Ink Bites in Simply Sinful,from the Autumn Equinox collection. I know I have said time and time again how much I love these inks, but it bears repeating!!!  I cleaned the stamp off and re-inked with Versa Mark, and embossed it with Nuvo Crystal Clear Embossing Powder.  I love the way these embossing powders perform!
  • I cut a circle from some window plastic, and made a shaker frame, filling it with some sequins from 28 Lilac Lane Adventures at Sea.  
  • Using my Mini Mist, I stamped the sentiment from Sherry Russ Stamplorations True North Collection with Versa Mark and embossed it with Nuvo Gacier White Embossing Powder and hit it with my heat tool.
  • I finished it off with a red, white and blue sequin.
Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to stop by and pick up your supplies to make your own projects! Don't forget to post them on the So Suzy Stamp of the Month Facebook page!  Have a great day!
