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!

The watercolor cards are fabulous with my favorite one being: Tulip with Hello Spring. Thanks for your coloring tips. I liked seeing how you colored these, they are beautiful!

Donna Kalinowsky

Your drawn images are fantastic already and once you color them they really come to life. Love all the layers of color with colored pencils, watercolor and Nuvo Drops . Adding the colored cardstock really frames the scene.

I cannot tell you how much I adore those cards! I'm so inspired by them, I had to make a huge order! I really love how you used the Nuvo drops to sparkle things up. Very, very nice!

Hi Suzy--I've always admired your cards & your coloring, but this is my absolute favorite set! Usually there's one or two in the set that aren't me or I don't know who I'd send to, but I love every single one of these! Coloring is not a talent I have, but I've started to do a little bit. I'm afraid of ruining your cards, so never order them. May have to get these anyway! Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

Kathleen Difato

I loved all the details you gave about coloring. I haven't thought to use Nuvo Drops as a "glaze" like you do. Also great tips about the two types of pencils you use.

Michelle Hackett

I absolutely love your watercolor cards, and I always look forward to seeing them on the hop. They always make me smile when I see them. You’re doing a great job.

Nancy May

Lovely! Your so creative.
