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!

Wow! Your ambition paid off; these are fabulous!

Donna Gourley

Cute cards! Thanks so much for sharing!

Linda Gilberg

Love colors in first card and absolutely love how you used sunny vibes set on second card! Just great cards!


Suzy, I love all the cards, but especially the one with all the random images -- what a great idea when I can't choose which image to use! Genius! TFS!

Andre M.

Your colouring showcases these sets so beautifully, love the spring scenes and the fantastic summer background you've created on your cards.

Linda M.

Adorable cards! Your coloring is so beautiful!

Love your pencil colored card. Very lovely! Great colors you chose!

Debby Green

Love your coloring! Amazing cards!

Well, I had picked the first card (the slim line card) as my favorite until I scrolled down and saw that you had actually created THREE cards for this blog post. The third one is hands down my favorite. Even though you have so much going on it all looks organized and purposeful. I love the colors you used and your style of coloring too! I have colored pencils but have only ever made one card with them. I am going to have to give it a try later this week when I make some cards though. Thanks for sharing your inspiration.

Your coloring is beautiful, I wish I could achieve this with pencils.

Beverly Perdue

Wow! I'm amazed at your no line coloring with the color pencils. I've tried the no line coloring, but mine did not come out too well. I need to practice. You are so talented. All of your cards are pretty amazing.
