So Suzy Stamps Design Team Anniversary Blog Hop

Anniversay - friendship


Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the So Suzy Stamps Design Team. As a special thank you to everyone who has been on the team, followed our blog and made new friends, we are doing a Friendship Blog Hop with some of our past and present Design Team members.

If you arrived here from my talented friend Jenny, then you are on the right path.  If you arrived here otherwise, you don’t want to miss out on the hop stop which starts at the fabulous Suzy’s blog.

Now on to my card:

Thank you (SSS)

I wanted to say thank you to Suzy for staking me on Instagram, that is how we met if you didn’t know.  Once we started talking, there was no stopping.  I don’t think she knew I was in my car, parked and ready to catch my train but waited so we could finish our conversation. I can’t believe its been a year!!

I also wanted to say thank you to all of my teammates!!  All of you have been super doper awesome to work with.  I love this team, stress-free and fun as hell!!

Do you want to see where the inspiration came from for this card?

Take a look:


I just love these gift cards from Starbucks.  They are such a great source of inspiration for me. It screamed So Suzy card!!  LOL!!

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I used Create a Smile snowflake stencil and I used Versamark ink and stamped on top of the stencil.
  2. Then I sprinkled Hero Arts White Embossing powder on top and heat set the  snowflakes.
  3. I allowed the paper to cool down, then I stamped the Thank you So Suzy Stamp with Versamark ink and sprinkled Hero Arts Liquid Platinum Embossing and heat set it.

Super simple and easy to replicate.

So what do you think?  Please let me know!

Now what is a blog hop without a prize!!

Happy Birthday Surprise!!!

Suzanne's Birthday


Hello everyone!  I’m excited about this blog post today.  Today is Suzanne’s Birthday!!  Who is Suzanne, better know as Suzy,  you asked?  Well let me tell you!

She is the owner of So Suzy Stamps and she has no idea that her Design Team is throwing her a Surprise Birthday Blog Hop.

This is the first stop on this hop!!  I’ve listed all of the participants at the end of this post just in case you miss a stop!  Each of the design team members created a birthday card for Suzy to show how much we really appreciate her.

What is a blog hop without some prizes!!  We are giving away a $15 So Suzy Stamps Gift Certificate and a free one month subscription to El Atelier de Stampartpapel to 2 lucky winners who leaves a comment on each of the blogs for a chance to win by February 22nd, 2015 by 11:59pm.   The winners will be chosen at random and announced on Monday, February 23rd at 12noon on the So Suzy Stamps Blog.  The winners will have 2 weeks to claim their prize.

Now onto the card I created for our fearless and super fun leader:

Happy Birthday Suzy

I went with black and white because I love this elegant look.  This picture doesn’t do this card justice.  The Wink of Stella pops on some parts to the card that isn’t captured in the photo.

This is how I created this card:

I cut my black card base to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50).  My card panel is cut to 4 x 5.25.

I embossed my card panel with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel with foam tape.

I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares to cut my small white panel.  Then I used that panel as a guide to cut my smaller black panel.

I stamped the Swirl So Suzy Stamp Medium Cupcake with black ink.  I added a Denim DoubleClick Skittle as the topper.

I added a random strip of ribbon to my card front.  I attached the smaller panels on top of that ribbon.

I added Wink of Stella to random places on my card.

Easy Peasy!!  I hope Suzy loves this card that I made just for her.

So what do you think?  Will she like this card?

Now on to the wonderful and talented Jenny Johnson to see what she has in store for you.

Happy New Year: So Suzy Stamps New Release!!!

????????????????????????????????(photo source)

Happy New Year to all of you!!

I’m so excited we all made it to another year!!

I guarantee you this year will be the best year.  I have a lot planned for you this year!!

I hope your ready for the ride because I’m ready to share with you.

So let me beginning my new year with So Suzy Stamps!!!  She has an awesome January release for you this month.

Lets take a look at my card I created for this release:

Oh la la

Who doesn’t like creamy ice cream!! I decided to go really simple with my card because I wanted the ice cone to be the focal point of my card.

Lets take a closer look at the yummyness!

oh la la close up 3

oh la la close up

oh loa la close up 2

Don’t you just want to touch to see if its soft.  Well it is!  Are you wondering how I did that?  I’m going to tell you.

1. I cut my Kraft cardstock to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50 scored at 4.25). I stamped So Suzy Stamps Oh La La stamp to the front of my cardstock.

2. I embossed the front of my cardstock with Stampin’ Up! Chevron Textured Embossing Folder then set it aside to work on my ice cream cone.

3. I stamped my So Suzy Stamps Ice Cone Fun Cone with Versamark ink and then embossed it with Adirondack Espresso Embossing Powder.

4. To create my textured ice, I used Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste and Ranger Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry reinkers to create my delicious colors.

5. I used my palette knife to carefully add the different color paste to my ice cream area.  I pushed past my embossed lines so that you don’t see my embossing.  I let it sit to dry.

6. Once my paste dried, I added glossy accent to my cherry for a pop.

7. I used my Koi Watercolors to added color to my cone.  The embossing gives that added texture to my cone.

8. Once the cone dried, I fuss cut the cone out and attached it to my card front using foam adhesive.

9. I added some Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins.

10. I rounded the corners using my corner chomper.

Easy and fun!!  My nieces and daughter loved it.  I hope you do too!

We are family!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Addicted To CAS Challenge.  The code word is: Family!!

ATCAS - code word familyWhen I saw this code word, I knew I had to use my new Create a Smile Monster Party stamp set.  Those monsters are so cute!  They make such a great family!!

Take a look:

Monster Family

Aren’t they cutest family!!  This reminds me of a family portraiture where everyone is doing there only thing.

I choose that sentiment from The Alley Way Stamps Rock Solid because its so fitting for me.  I have so many people in my life that treat me like family and I love that for that.  Its such a nice feeling.

So here is how I created this card:

1. I used Simon Says Stamp School House Red cardstock for my card base.

2. Then I used Stampin’ Up! Decorative Dots Embossing Folder to create this funny dots on the front to my card base.  I though these dots were so fitting for my Monster Family!

3. I used Stampin’ Up! Deco Labels Framelit Die and cut out the largest frame on the front of my card base.

4. I stamped my Monster Family on Neenah Solar White cardstock and then colored them using my Copic markers.  I’m not perfect but I getting better with them, LOL!!

In order from left to right:

small monster: Go2, G04

big monster: B00, B02, B04, R29

small monster: R24, R27

big monster: Y13, Y15, Y19

flowers: G04

5. I stamped the small star-like stamp and the sentiment stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

6. I used foam adhesive to my color panel and attached it to the red card base.

7. I added glossy accents to the blue monster’s eye and Clear Wink of Stella to all of my monsters.

Nice and simple with some dimension!!
