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!

I love the celebrate everything card!!

Sue D

I enjoyed seeing how you created these cards.

Melissa Bell

Beautiful cards! Love seeing what you create! Your so talented!


I'm so impressed with how you were able to pull that third card out. I would have pulled a rage-quit about three minutes into the smudged makeup. But that's why you're the pro, because not only did you pull it off, I think it looks even better than a flat version would! I'm also kind of amazed you managed to get the peeled paint and seedless preserves to play nicely on your whale background. Thanks for sharing your incredible creativity (and problem-solving skills!) with us. I always look forward to seeing your work!

All of these cards are beautiful but that leading lady is gorgeous!
