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!

Love your coloring! Beautiful!


Thank you for the tip of not cutting apart the dies... no more taping down the dies and then tearing my paper.

Love this card. A wonderful sign of Spring Flowers in those gorgeous colors. Love the subtle embossing of the Streaming emboss folder in the background. Just stunning. Oh my gosh, thank you for the tip on not cutting the dies apart. That’s a plus in my book.
