So Suzy Tulip Background

Hi Everyone,

to day we have a special feature at So Suzy Stamps - the wonderful Tulip Background stamp!
Such an intricate stamp and full of possibilities, as you will see from all the fabulous cards the DT girls created!

I myself made two cards out of one background.

My stamp supplies:

I started out heat embossing the background in white onto water color paper.

Sprinkled Bushos on it and spritzed with water:

That's how it looked like:

Move the color around with a brush and let it dry.

Stamped again in black onto white card stock: 

Lined up both panels and die cut a circle - you want to make sure the pattern lines up, otherwise it looks funny....

And that's what you get: 

Backed up the water colored parts with fun foam and mounted them onto card stock

Adding the heat embossed sentiments and some enamel dots.

Now have fun creating your own background cards! 
But don't forget to check out all the other wonderful creations and leave some love behind ;)

Happy Stamping!

Oh klasse!!!: zwei Karten aus/in ein und demselben Grundmotiv. Das ist ja DER Hit, da kann man schnell mal zwei verschiedene Karten fertigstellen.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
