Hi Crafters,
Justine here, hacking into Suzy's blog for a Surprise Blog Hop! Today is Suzy's Birthday!!! A MASSIVE HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU SUZANNE!!! The Design Team got together and created some awesome birthday cards for you, so hop along with our blog hop to see what we have created and possibly win a prize!

GIVEAWAY: Comment on each of the blogs for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to So Suzy Stamps sponsored by justinehovey.com! Comment before Feb. 22nd, winner will be announced Feb. 23rd!

Chris's Creation:

This is a 5" x 7" card that I made with distress inks and the Fancy Butterfly and Fancy Happy Birthday stamps.  I started with a panel of Gina K base weight white cardstock,  I trimmed it to 4 3/4" x 6 3/4".  Using a few bright colors of Distress Inks, I created a random color pattern with the round blending tool.

I stamped the sentiment and several butterflies with embossing ink and using Black Filagree embossing powder, heat embossed them.  I then used a paintbrush to darken a few areas of the wings of the butterflies using the corresponding distress ink.  Once dry, I attached the panel to a black 5" x 7" card base.


Your next stop is Monica! Hop on over to see her fabulous creation!

So Suzy Stamps (Chris) - YOU ARE HERE

What your Design Team has to say:

Justine:
Before Suzanne, I never really had a specific stamp company that worked for me in every way. With So Suzy Stamps Design Team, my confidence in crafting has grown and I have a place where I feel like I belong. Ok, maybe it ha to do with all the quirky DT members and how well we get along but Suzanne created this awesome place for us to be ourselves! Thank you and Happy Birthday Suzanne!

Jennifer:
Before Suzy, my cards were all butterflies and rainbows. Then I found her Instagram feed and it was all downhill from there...my bank account will never recover. I'm constantly pushing myself to think of new ways to use her stamps and will never have enough swirls in my life. And the sentiments! They're my first stop now when I'm making any card, plus I now make sure to decorate the insides AND the envelope! My cards still have butterflies, but it's now a 50/50 chance that they also have some serious snark.

Monica:
Suzy is not only a smarty, sassy business lady, she is a creator of friendships. She has brought a group of crafters together where we have fun and encourage each other in our crafting addictions. She is also one of the most generous people I have met helping me grow my crafting collections along the way. Thank you for your friendship and Happy birthday!

Chris:
Happiest of Birthdays to you, Suzanne!
I am so happy to be included as part of your team this year.  I'm honored and blessed that you decided to take a chance on my kind of blog-less crazy.  You have inspired and encouraged me! It's been so much fun this far, and I look forward to the next few months and especially to meeting you in person, for realz, at your retreat in July!
