So Suzy Stamps "Family and Friends" Blog Hop



Hello, my friends! Today is the day of So Suzy Stamps and Crackerbox Stamps Anniversary... how exciting! This post is part of a Blog Hop: you can find more info down below! 

I'm a So Suzy Stamps DT member since June 2016. It was my first - and only, for a few - Design Team and I was so scared and excited as I was chosen by Suzanne and Justine! So I entered an international team, I began writing my blog post in English, being part of the international community.

Ciao amici! Oggi è il gran giorno: si festeggia l'anniversario di So Suzy Stamps e Crackerbox... quanto sono felice! Faccio parte del DT di So Suzy Stamps da giugno 2016. E' stato il mio primo Design Team - e per un poco, anche l'unico -, ero allo stesso tempo spaventata e agitata quando vidi di essere stata scelta da Suzanne e Justine! Così sono entrata in un team internazionale, ho cominciato a scrivere i miei post in doppia lingua e a prendere parte a gruppi e community di respiro internazionale.


Time flies and things change: DT members, So Suzy Stamps owner, new stamps and designers. But as things change, they keep to be the same: friendship grows, new people arrive, new idea come: so I'm very happy to celebrate today with a couple of cards, saying a big "Thank you" to all the people behind So Suzy Stamps, present and past. Well, let's get it started!

Il tempo vola e le cose cambiano: membri del DT, proprietari di So Suzy Stamps, timbri nuovi e nuovi designer. Spesso però le cose cambiano per rimanere simili a sé stesse: l'amicizia è andata aumentando, sono arrivate nuove persone, sono nate idee originali: proprio per questo sono davvero felice di festeggiare oggi con un paio di card, dicendo "grazie" a tutte le persone dietro So Suzy, nel presente e nel passato. Bene, ora cominciamo!


I made the first card by realizing my own background with Distess Inks (Scattered Straw, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers), blending and re-activating them with water droplets.

Ho realizzato la prima card partendo da uno sfondo creato ad hoc con i Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers), riattivati con qualche goccia d'acqua.


Then I stamped the "Birds on Branch" with Memento Tuxedo Black in order to color with promarkers; next I fussy cut. At this point I trimmed 2 strips of white cardstock that I wanted to add at the top and at the bottom of the card base. Before that, I stamped the sentiment "You're Amazing". And this is the finished card:

In seguito ho timbrato gli uccellini sull'albero con del Memento nero, così da poterli colorare con i promarkes. Poi ho ritagliato il tutto, ho preso due strisce di cartoncino bianco che ho voluto aggiungere ai lati della base. Prima di fissarli, ho timbrato la scritta "You're Amazing". E questa è la card finita:


The second one is very similar, I only changed the color scheme for the birds, added a green patterned paper and the "Thinking of you" sentiment.

La seconda card è parecchio simile, ho solo cambiato i colori degli uccellini, aggiunto una carta decorativa verde e la scritta "Thinking of you".
