My name is Suzy Plantamura. I live in sunny Orange County, California by the beach. I have three kids, one grand baby, and two dogs. I draw watercolor cards and design stamps for Simon Says Stamp. I have a blog series called "one stamp, five ways" that I post to two times a week. I want to motivate and inspire others to use their stamp sets more and learn new techniques. I love designing products and making cards to share with others!

What beautiful cards here, Suzy! Hard to pick a fav, but might have to go with the second card if I had to chose. Love your work and style. Awesome job!


I cannot believe you aren't getting comments! I'm a new follower of your blog and really enjoy the idea of your using one set many ways. I really like all the cards you created here. What a labor of love for you! I'm very smitten with all the cards, but I think the pink background one draws my eye the most. But gosh, those stripes sure are striking! Excellent work and I thank you for sharing!! :)


These are gorgeous! I have this stamp set and have been trying my hand at watercoloring them, with less than fabulous results. You have given me lots of inspiration, thanks!

Suzy - I feel guilty for reading and running. Love every one of them, but the turquoise 'just a note' one is maybe a fave. But that cute tag would be so sweet to give my friend who is a voracious reader. Thank you so much for your creative inspiration...I soak it up. And how are you feeling? Well, I hope.


Super! Love the striped backgrounds:)

Just got that stamp set, so this is a perfect post for me! Love all these cards, but the first one is my favorite. TFS!!!

I like the one with the purple background and I also like the ones with the striped backgrounds. I love this series that you are doing with many cards from one stamp set. To me, they are like mini-classes. I printed one off and I am making some similar cards in my craft room with supplies that I have on hand, but I am having so such fun, I plan to order some of the specific stamps, dies and supplies that you are using.


I have this stamp set too and am always looking for new ideas for using it. I like all your cards, but the first one is my favorite. This series is great for ideas of how to use a stamp set many ways. Thanks!

I look daily to see if you have posted something new. I was extra excited when I saw this post as I have this set of stamps. Helen S said it well - I too love it when you do several cards from the same stamp set. Gives lots of ideas. No way I could pick a favorite, but I especially love the stripes and the one with the Swiss dots cut out. I love all the things you post!! Thanks for sharing!

Love the first two! Going to try those stripes


I love the card with the Swiss dots! I must have that die! I have the stamp set but haven't used it yet. You have helped me see the versatility of this set. I am a new fan having found your blog thanks to SSS who featured the cutest shaker card ever (Sheep). I'm so thrilled to have found your blog! 😊

I really like your blog and am inspired by the One Stamp set/5 ways. Your striped backgrounds are wonderful as well. I must attempt this soon!
