This post is a special Thank You to Suzanne Moore and SoSuzyStamps. She and her team (Justine Hovey and Kymona Tracey) of the SoSuzySessions class on “How To Be On a Design Team” have done so much for myself and others who were in the first class. Because of Suzanne and this class I now have this blog and Instagram going, and am developing into other areas of social media. The information presented, and the support we were given has increased my confidence tremendously. The class has also improved my card making , my photography , and presentation.
Even if you are not interested in being on a Design Team – it is a very worthwhile class. I am not there yet, but have taken huge steps to being ready and have increased my confidence level. Suzanne, Justine and Kymona continue to give us support and answer questions as we grow our options in the card making community.
She has an initial free class you can take called “Social Media Must Haves for Card Makers”. Yes, I said FREE. This will introduce you to all the social media possibilities and best practices in setting them up. (Instagram, Facebook Pages, Blog, and Pinterest)
The Design Team class is available on line, in an eBook, or a combination of both. Check it out at http://so-suzy-sessions.teachable.com/ . You won’t be sorry.
Meanwhile, my card for this post is also a SoSuzyStamps presentation.
The stamp is Marilyn Monroe , available at SoSuzyStamps.com. The mirror image was done using the Mirror Image Rubber, also available at SoSuzyStamps.com. You can check out a video by Justine Hovey at her blog to see how to use it. Check out some of Justine’s other blogs and videos — she is a terrific teacher and a great source of information. I embossed the images with clear embossing powder before doing the background. The background uses Ken Oliver’s Color Bursts in fuchsia, chartreuse, and tangerine. I spritzed it with Tattered Lace glimmer mist to “burst” the colors and get a pretty sheen on the card front. Nail art tape was used to form a frame around the card design, then the card front was adhered it to a black and white card piece. That was popped up on a gold metallic card base from GinaKDesigns.
Thank you for reading my blog and I will be back to chat soon.
