Hi my dear friends,

First of all I want to wish you all a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving holiday, enjoy this day with your love ones and thanks so, so much for all the love and support you give to my work!

Today, I want to show you and easy and cute card I made with the So Suzy Stamp of the month for November , I had a lot fun making this card because I experimented with the Nuvo’s and I love this experiment, let me tell you what I did!

Below are the materials I used for my card

I started stamping my shells with versamark forming a tree, I also added the star from the So Suzy stamp of the month of June at the top, this will become my tree top.

Then I decorated my tree with my gelly roll stardust pen and some tiny stars from Martha Stewart, the cool part comes with the tree top. First I filled my star with Nuvo drops and then I sprinkled glitter on it, it looks so puffy and wonderful, I LOVE IT!!!!

For the bottom part I just wrote my sentiment with Nuvo drops on a printed piece of vellum, it adds a lot of dimension, I am thinking next time I will add glitter to the sentiment too, to see how it looks 🙂 This card looks very delicate and pretty on real life, hope you give it a try!

Remember, until December 1st, Suzy is giving you a chance to catch up on all of the Quarters you may have missed. PLUS, everyone who has been AMAZING enough to have the entire 2016 SAM Collection will be receiving an EXTRA SPECIAL gift when our last SAM Stamps get sent out on the 10th of December. So be sure and get your missing SAM stamps before December 1st!

So Suzy Stamp of the Month November

10Nov

Hi There!!!

Today I want to share a very easy and cute card with the stamp of the Month for November of So Suzy Stamps, I love this kind of designs for many reasons, first because sometimes we don’t have 2 hours to make a card, second because it is easy to mail and third because the results are as cute as a card that you spend hours making it and you can even use this technique to make your own gift wrapping paper, don’t you think?

Below are some of the few materials you will need.

Start stamping your image with Versamark, I tried to stamp it randomly to make the impression of a patterned paper.

Then emboss it with silver embossing powder.

I added a dainty bow die cut from pretty Pink Posh and a sentiment written in vellum by me and attached it with ranger multi medium matte (I adore this adhesive) and voila! Super easy and fast card, hope you tried it!

Remember, from now until December 1st, Suzy is giving you a chance to catch up on all of the Quarters you may have missed. PLUS, everyone who has been AMAZING enough to have the entire 2016 SAM Collection will be receiving an EXTRA SPECIAL gift when our last SAM Stamps get sent out on the 10th of December. So be sure and get your missing SAM stamps before December 1st!

Sending Prayers

29Oct

Happy Saturday Lovelies!

I changed my plan a little bit with this post, initially I thought on making a bookmark; but after listening to the story of a friend that is going through a rough time, I decided that it was better to make a card for her and sharing with all of you, specially with the ones that may need at this moment hugs and prayers, please know you are never alone!

For today’s card I used Beautiful Blooms Hydrangea, I started stamping my image on versamark and embossing it with white embossing powder from Hero Arts, then I colored the back of my image with tombow markers, you don’t really need to be extra careful coloring with this technique since is not going to show the detail, that’s why I love it! After I colored it, I fussy cut my image and attached it to my base card being careful of putting the glue only on the spots I can hide, either with an embellishments or embossed in white, then on the center of my flower I added nuvo drops in Ivory Seashell color, then I stamped my sentiment sending hugs and for the prayers I die cut a banner and wrote it on calligraphy.

For the last touch I added the beautiful sequins from the Pink Champagne sequin mix.

This is a very easy and quick card with a beautiful bouquet that can be used for any occasion, hope you can give it a try 🙂

Big Hugs to all,
Alba
