Groundhog Day

 Hi!  I am back with a new challenge for The Funkie Junkie Boutique hosted by yours truly! 

I challenged the team to "Groundhog Day"!  Now before you get worried that you have to have animals, weather, snow etc read on to see what the challenge is all about: 

"This challenge is inspired by the movie Groundhog Day.  In the movie Bill Murray is forced to repeat the same day over and over again for 10 years.  This past year has been a little challenging and people have felt like they might be in a little bit of a Groundhog Day time loop.  I am challenging you to create a shabby chic or vintage project that uses a technique, stamp, ink, or any other consistent tool that you find yourself using over an over in your art.  Think of this as your opportunity to share what you find yourself repeating in your art frequently.  Be sure to share with us in your post what it is that you keep repeating in your art"

For this challenge it was all about thinking about my favorite things I love to do... I decided the main thing I love to do is stamping images.  I started this blog many years ago and started with Stamping Suzz or Stampersuzz as you have all seen in my comments and posts... I am all about inking up new stamps and stamping the images... For me finding a new stamp that I love and using it different ways is what I enjoy the most. I decided to use the rose from the Stampers Anonymous set as my inspiration for this project. 

I stamped the flowers multiple times using the light brown ink.  I then colored with another favorite of mine (watercolor pencils and waterbrush)  I then fussy cut the flowers and assembled them together to create this tag.

I could say on this project I used so many of my favorite repeats:  tags, fussy cutting, watercolor, stamping and distressing the edges. 

I am all about the stamps. I love embellishments and other tools and techniques but for me my passion has always been about stamping the images and using them in different designs! 

Please come share your repeatable favorites with us in the challenge.  The overall winner will  receive a $25 gift certificate to go on a spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And the winner, along with our top three picks from the remaining entries will receive badges to display on their blogs in recognition of their outstanding contributions.

Thanks for stopping by!




  1. Gorgeous creation, love all the layers!

  2. Beautiful tag! I love the use of the blended color!! and that stencil background.

  3. Beautiful coloring and great background!

  4. What a great challenge theme Suzanne it certainly makes us think of the things we use often without even realising it. Your tag is fantastic, off to see it in all it's glory now x

  5. What a fabulous piece of art, Suzz! This really melts my heart! I would have guessed that stamps would be at the top of your list of 'repeats', but you are a master of every technique you put your hand to. So very inspiring!

  6. You are master of getting the most out of your stamps and always use them in clever and inspiring ways with delicate colours. And then your backgrounds are always stand out too so team them together and you've got the creative magic you always conjure up. This tag is the perfect example of both of those and I loved seeing your showcase post with even more ideas xx
