July Inspiration for So Suzy Stamps - Anything Goes

This month, at So Suzy Stamps, the design team has free reign with an Anything Goes theme.  It's the first of the month so the team has come together with a new round of creative projects to help you utilize your collection of So Suzy Stamps.  

My project today is a CAS card that features several stamps; Fairy with Flower, Herb 1, Spire Sage and Sunny and Bright.  You'll also find affiliate shopping links at the end of this post.






You'll need a few additional things to re-create this project:

A4 White Card (8.3" x 11.7" dimensions, folded in half) Kaisercraft
Water based brush markers (Zig, Marvy, Tombow) Greens, Gray, light blue
Nuvo Bubblegum Crystal Drops
Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue -Firefly and Eucalyptus
Memento Dye Ink Tuxedo Black
Water Brush
Misti stamping tool
iron
*optional washi tape
*optional, parchment paper
Craft mat
Craft heat tool


**Note, you may wish to create a card panel instead of directly creating images on an A4 card. Some warping will occur due to watercolors, much of which can be ironed out.


1.  Ink the SSS Fairy with Flower Stamp on the lower right corner of cardstock, using your Misti stamp positioner.  Ink 2-3 times for full coverage.

2. Using the Spire Sage Stamp, swipe with a gray water based marker and stamp along bottom and top edge of card.  *Optional, place a strip of washi tape under the cardstock to avoid messy ink getting on your Misti.





3. Use the Herb 1 stamp and stamp along top and bottom edge of card, swiping stamp directly with various green shades of a water based marker.  You'll be stamping over the gray, inked sage image but that's ok.  Heat set your ink prior to next step.




4.  Swipe a light blue water based brush marker on your craft mat and grab color with slightly wet waterbrush.  Fill in some of the empty space around the foliage, with the blue.  Blot as needed with paper towel.  Try not to over saturate cardstock.

**Lightweight or medium weight cardstock will warp when wet- grab your iron!

5.  Heat set your watercoloring.  Use an iron to smooth out any warping with either a craft iron or a regular iron.  Place image face down on ironing board.  You can place cardstock between two pieces of parchment paper if you like.  Take care not to burn your cardstock




6. Add glitter glue to leaves and Nuvo crystal drops to tiny buds.  Allow to dry 4 hours or overnight for the Nuvo.





As we say in the South, "Ain't she purty?"   A pretty little garden for my fairy.  This card would brighten anyone's day!
