Hello friends...

I have used  Wedding Dress & Confidednce is Sexy stamps for my card... I love this dress & it pairs beautifully with the sentiment.

Here is how I made it:
I started by stamping my image with Versafine Onyx Black ink & heat embossed it using Zing Clear Embossing Powder. Then I used Memory Box Diamond Stencil, paintbrush, Abandoned Coral & Worn Lipstick Distress inks to create my background ( I decided not to use the Ripe Persimmon afterwards so kindly ignore it in the picture )

  • As you can see above the dress was not popping out from the background so I inked it with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink & a brush so that it fades out.

  • Next stamped the  Confidednce is Sexy stamp  with Versafine Onyx Black ink & heat embossed it using Zing Clear Embossing Powder.

Blowing Butterflies and Bubble Background

Hello friends...
& welcome to So Suzy Stamps inspiration
I have made today's card using the beautiful Blowing Butterflies & Fluff Your Tutu stamp sets
I also have a pictorial for making the fun background so read till the end...20160625_153108
Who doesn't love to play with bubbles.... I sure do & when it results in such beautiful background then it's even more fun... Here is the step-by-step instructions of how to make it :
20160625_122353

  • You will need a bowl, straw, dish-washing liquid, water, watercolor paper and colors of your choice... I have used yellow & reds for my background.
  • Pour a little dish-washing liquid & water in a bowl, add few drops of colors and mix with the straw ( if using same color family then I like to start with the lightest color ).
  • Now the fun part starts... start blowing bubbles in the bowl with the help of straw.

20160625_123131_001
  • Now take your watercolor paper & touch it to the bubbles & remove... The bubbles with burst leaving behind the beautiful pattern.
  • Repeat this process as many times as you like to build up your background.

20160625_123348
  • Add more colors ( in the above picture I added red color ) & repeat the process of blowing bubbles & touching watercolor paper to the colorful bubbles.

20160625_153206
  • To create my card I stamped the Blowing Butterflies stamp on my background & colored in the butterflies.
  • Then I die cut the  bottom part & adhered it to the card front.

  • I used the remaining part of the die cut to embellish the inside of my card... The background was too pretty to throw away :P
  • I also stamped Fluff Your Tutu stamp inside to finish my card.
I would love to see how you use this tutorial to create your own backgrounds....

Friend...


Hello Friends...
Welcome to Inspired by Stamping inspiration post... Hope you all are  doing well...
Today I am revisiting one of my favorite stamp set by Inspired by Stamping Words of Inspiration
As the name suggests this set has some great inspirational quotes...

20160622_132157
For today's card I started with making the stenciled background. I inked it very lightly so that the color is darkest at the center & fades out at the edges for a soft background. Next I added some black paint splatters with my brush on the stenciled background.
20160622_132224
For my sentiment I die cut a white circle, a gold circle & a black circle. I stamped my sentiment from Words of Inspiration stamp set with watermark ink on the black circle & heat embossed it using my white embossing powder. Next I stacked all the 3 circles  as shown & adhered it to the card front.

  • To make the card I started out with the border die & cut out 2 borders to frame my sentiment.
  • I saved the middle part of the die cut to stamp my sentiment on.
  • I also embossed a 4" x 5 1/4" white cardstock with my embossing folder.

  • 20160524_212602


  • Next I used Vesamark ink to stamp Fluff Your Tutu stamp & heat embossed it using Liquid Platinum Embossing powder
  • Now its time to assemble the card. 
  • I used foam adhesive to adhere the embossed background on my A2 card front.
  • Then I glued down the sentiment panel on the embossed background.
  • To create the border I gently curved the border die cuts with the back of a paint brush & adhered the edges down as shown
  • For the final touch I added some pearls to the border.

     Here are few close ups of my card...
