Suz’s May Friday Feature

Hello there everyone! I hope you are enjoying warmer temps and the onset of late spring/early summer. I am back here today to feature a few things from this month’s “Here I Am” kit. And this month, I am featuring how I used May’s exclusive stamp sets which can be found in the Cocoa Daisy Boutique here (while supplies last).

First up is the “Here I Am” stamp set. I used this stamp as part of my title and as a block in my grid layout design. I simply stamped it several times in colors that complemented my patterned papers and photo and gave it a special place on my layout, drawing extra attention to it by raising it up with foam adhesive.

Here’s a look at the full layout design:

Next up, is that adorable little ninja stamp! Isn’t he the cutest?

(Please note, these stamps imprint beautifully! I just happened to use an ink pad that had seen its last days and decided to embrace the distressed imperfection that the sentiment is! 😉

I simply used two parts of each of the sentiments below to customize the sentiment I wanted to have on the card. I masked off  the parts of sentiments I didn’t want and then stamped away. So, the “you” is from the “Did you see me do that?” as pictured below and the ”  ‘ve got MAD NINJA skills” is what I stamped with for the remainder of my sentiment.  As you can see from below, I used the starburst graphic circle as the ninja’s weapons he is wielding. I stamped the image and then cut it up into his two weapons in action as shown on the card.

I don’t know about you, but I find a lot of creative satisfaction in using stamps in adaptive ways and this was a really fun card to make. I made it for one of my sons as he reaches his next degree of black belt.

On this card I used the “beautiful day” stamp from the May stamp sub.

And lastly, here I have used several of the sentiment stamps from the main kit, DITL kit, and stamp sub.

(Here I used the “We Were Here” , “Beautiful Day” , and “#rightnow” stamps on this two page layout).

These are just a few of the ways I have used this month’s stamps on my creations. For more ideas on how I have incorporated May’s stamps into my designs click here.  I used stamps on nearly every design I created I believe and I still have yet to crack open this awesome, versatile set below! photo Sentiments_zps26e3dd8c.jpg


It is available for purchase here while supplies last. 

Thanks so much for stopping in today! Hope you have a restful and lovely weekend!
