Happy Anniversary, So Suzy Stamps!!!



Welcome to the 2nd Anniversary of So Suzy Stamps Blog Hop! We are so excited to bring you some gorgeous projects featuring the Top 10 So Suzy Stamps of all time! We even made a section on the website where you can find the most popular stamps. If you are coming from Martha’s blog, you’re in the right place and if you’re just stopping by you can start here. Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog to be entered into the many drawings for prizes.  

My card today features the Wedding Dress stamp, one of the Top Ten So Suzy stamps to date.

The Wedding Dress stamp is lovely.  It needs no improvement, no fancy embellishments, or even much color.  It's simple, yet elegant;  crisp, yet very feminine.  Today I wanted to highlight just how pretty this stamp is, as is.

I began my card by stamping the Wedding Dress with Versamark ink onto a 3.5' x 5.5" panel of black cardstock.  I also stamped the Confidence is Sexy sentiment stamp in Versamark as well, and heat embossed them both with gold embossing powder.  I love the gold on black.  It's stunning and elegant.

Next I stamped the Dot Splatter stamp repeatedly on the right edge of a vertical folded A2 card base with Versamark and also gold heat embossed that as well.  For the left edge, I just swiped my Versamark pad along the left edge to fully cover the edge with ink, then also heat embossed that in gold, so that all of my images match in sheen, color and texture.

I adhered my black and gold panel to my card base and my card was finished.




Simple, classy and classic.  Just like the Wedding Dress stamp!
