So Suzy Stamps April Release Blog Hop

April Blog Hop


Hello everyone!! I’m here with So Suzy Stamps.  Welcome to the full reveal and blog hop of So Suzy Stamps April Release!!  If you arrived here from So Suzy Stamps blog, then your on the right track.  If you arrived randomly, the blog hop starts at So Suzy Stamps blog.  Yuu don’t want to miss out on any of my design team members cards.  They did a fabulous job.

Check out the card I created for this hop:

Happy Birthday

I used the Girl on the Swing Stamp to create my card.  This little girl is so cute.  I had to take my time and color her.

I have to admit I messed up just a little bit.  Instead of using my new MFT Hybrid Black Ink or my Memento Black Ink, I used the VersaFine Black Onyx and stamped my image.

Big no, no!  The black ink bleeds. When I realized what happen, I was already to far gone with my coloring. I just took my sweet time and tried not to touch the stamped edge.

That was hard to do.  The image is so intricate that I had to get really close.  Never again will I make that mistake!!

In any case, she turned out well.  This card is a very CAS card.  Your attention is drawn to the girl on the swing.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my cardstock to 4.25 x 5.50 scored at 4.25.

2. I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Die to cut out my circle off of the side of my card front.

3. I stamped my So Suzy Stamps Girl on the Swing image inside the circle cut out.

4. I used Copic Markers to color my image:

Dress, shoes and antennas: V01, V04, V06

Winks: BG11, BG13, BG15

Swing Bench: E13, E15

Swing String: C3

Skin: Eoo, E11

Hair: E33, E35

5. I attached Stampin’ UP! Coastal Cabana Bakers Twine to the top of my card.

6. I added Your Next Stamp Crystal Clear Gumdrops for added interest.

7. The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp Whatnot Sentiments Set.

I did a sneak peak of one of the new stamps a couple of weeks ago.  Check out that card here.
