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' good idea to use embossing powder on the thin balloon lines. I am not good at coloring with pens do I like the watercolor idea

Hi, Suzy - Love both cards but that birthday one really speaks to me. I send SO many b-day cards.... to elderly people at my church and in the community (nursing homes, etc.) as well as to people at my school and, of course, friends and family. It's a knockout!

Beautiful! I love watercolour on balloons - it really lends itself to the translucent look of balloons!

Your coloring always blows me away. I love your cards and I often use your inspiration to get started making cards when I am not sure what I want to do, then ideas just spring from that jumping off point! I love these! Love the release, especially that balloon background stamp. HAVE TO HAVE IT! Thanks for sharing!
