Field Mice and Strawberry Jam with Suzy Plantamura

When these sets were first introduced I thought how well they would go together, so for this card, I used Field Mice and Strawberry Jam.  I also used the Simply Squared Background Stamp. I made the background with Distress Oxide Inks by applying ink first and then stamping the Simply Squared Background Stamp in a darker color so it showed up over the lighter inks. I then used two different frame dies overlapping them including Gallery Frame #2 Die and Gallery Frame #4 Die.  I stamped the sentiment from the Strawberry Jam stamp set with black ink on a stitched...

Rainy Day Stamp With Suzy Plantamura

Hello friends! Today I have a card to share with you using the Rainy Day stamp set and the Rainbow Sky die. I made a vertical slim-line card (first time I’ve tried this!) using watercolor paper cut to be 3.5″ x 8.5″. I painted the grass and the sky with watercolors keeping them fairly light. I stamped the greeting from the Rainy Day stamp set on the bottom of the card front with black ink. I die-cut the rainbow and sun from the Rainbow Sky die also using watercolor paper. I painted them with watercolors as well. The rainbow...

Cocoa Party by Suzy Plantamura

Today I have a post using the new holiday set called Cocoa Party. I am always a big advocate of getting as much use out of our stamp sets as possible. I decided to use this stamp set for a New Years card with a little creativity for the greeting. I started by die-cutting the Warm Wishes die out of a card size piece of watercolor paper (5.5″ x 4.25″). I left all of the letters in place and adhered it to a card base. I then painted over it with blue, turquoise, and gray blue watercolor using a...
