2016 Design Team Blog Leap

 Welcome to the 2016 Design Team Cage Match!   It's kind of hard making cards with boxing gloves on, but when Suzy says hop, we do!  Be sure to vote on your favorite card! There will be two winners for this cage match. 

I love the vintage-looking inkwell stamp from So Suzy Stamps. I thought it would pair well with the new Graphic 45 paper, Communique Collection - the papers I used were Postage and Pen in Hand.  I cut the frame in patterned black paper using the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackable, and stamped the inkwell on cream cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black.  The embellishments are from Artc Embellishments and The Paper Studio.  I stamped the inside with So Suzy's Stardust dancing sentiment in So Suzy's Egyptian Sand.

Be sure to vote for your favorite card! The winners will be announced on March 6 on the So Suzy Stamps Blog.

Martha's blog is next. so please be sure to head on over - Thanks for stopping by - be sure to vote!

February SAM Bonus Stamp!

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Hi! This month is our fearless leader - the creative genius behind So Suzy Stamps - the one - the only Suzanne's birthday! In honor of this momentous occasion, she included this cute shell as a bonus stamp in the February Stamp A Month Club Release!

I cut an A2 card from blue cardstock.  I made a background on watercolor paper using Ken Oliver Crafts Colorburst in Ultramarine Blue, Violet and a small bit of Pthalo Green, misted it with water and dried it with a heat tool,  I used my Mini Misti and stamped a fish from So Suzy Stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black, and re-stamped it with Versa Mark, heat embossing with clear embossing powder. I stamped the shells in So Suzy Ink Bits in Royal Phineas from the Peacock Plumes Collection, re-stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with Zing Blue Glitter Embossing powder. The frame was cut with a MFT Stamps Pierced Square Stax die namics.  I cut the banner from blue cardstock, and used So Suzy's I'm Feeling Beachy stamp to finish the card. Everything was attached with 3-M foam tape.

All of the materials used to create the card can be found at Suzy's online store!  Be sure to sign up for the Stamp a Month Club if you haven't already!

February 2016 Stamp A Month

Hi! Today is début day for So Suzy's Stamps Stamp A Month Club February stamp.  I am in love with this antique looking Captain's Desk stamp! It is sometimes a challenge for me to make a "manly" card for the guys I have on my list, but I will be using this stamp as my new go to! 

I used Graphic 45 By the Sea Collection, Pier 45 paper for the background and frame. I used My Favorite Things Die-Namics  Rectangle Stitched Dies for the frame, and stamped the Captain's Desk in Memento Ink, Rich Cocoa. I used foam tape to give the frame some dimension, and finished it with a piece of twine.

Head on over to So Suzy's Stamps and check the blog so see what awesome things that were created!  If you haven't already done so, be sure to sign up for the second quarter Stamp A Month Club!
