Winter hello | Card

Hello there, crafty friends!
I'm glad to be here to share with you my winter card using absolutely cute image by Mo's digital pencil called Season's Greetings 2016. Just look at these characters!


I colored the image with alcohol Chaneleon pens( it took me about an hour). For the background I used Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress ink. Very simple and I really love this card. 


As for coloring it takes me less time than before, practice makes sense, the most time consuming part fot me - to assemble the card. Even though it may look sinple I spend hours to come to the final design, strange thing :)


Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an amazing day!

Day 14/15 | Holiday card series 2017

Hello there, dear friends!
Yesterday I was too tired to post anything so here are the latest cards of my Holiday card series 2017 featuring So Suzy stamps. It was such a fun marathon and I was really happy to see the participants. If you are interested, you can check the hashtag #holidaycards_olesyakharkova on Instagram. Thank you so much for your encouraging words and sweet comments, I truly appreciate them!
So here is card # 14


I really like non traditional colors I used and actually there's nothing unusual about a pink Christmas card nowadays)) 
 I used: 
Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink
Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink
 ↑These new colors of Oxide inks soon will be available at sosuzystamps.com


The steps here are quite simple. I heat embossed all the snowflakes in clear powder, sponged Distress Oxide inks on top. Then stamped the sentiment onto a strip of vellum with Jet Black Archival Ink and then heat embissed in clear as well to make it shiny. Adhered the ends of the strip to the back side of the panel. Embellished with die cut snowflakes and clear Nuvo drops in Morning Dew.




Card # 15 and the last one:


I call this card "Who ate all the candy canes?" :)
I used:
Snowman Joy So Suzy stamp


I wanted him to look a bit different and more complicated. So I decided to make a small shaker card. I stamped the Snowman three times : one for the entire image, second - for the scarf and the third time - for the snowdrift he was standing in.


I colored the imgae with alcohol Chameleon pens. Die cut a circle inside the snowman. The additional scarf would cover the cut area.


I neeeded candy canes too fill in the shaker but had neither stamp nor appropriate die. But I found the wau out  -  I had alphabet dies and the letter J matched there perfectly. I drew the stripes with a white gel pen. Covered the scarf with Wink of stella shimmer.




Thank you sooo much for being with me during these two weeks! I'm so happy you enjoyed and shared this crafty journey with me! 
P.S. The winners will be announced very soon!
Have a beautiful day!

Day 13| Holiday card Series 2017 ft So Suzy Stamps

Hello there, lovelies!

How are you? I'm very excited to share with you my card #13 of the Holiday card series 2017 featuring So Suzy stamps. This card is all about gold heat embossing and watercoloring.



I used:
Poinsettia stamp by So Suzy 
Pinecone Sm by So Suzy
Merry Christmas brush ( sentiment) stamp by So Suzy


I stamped the Poinsettia  and the Pinecone Sm several times onto watercolor paper using Emboss It clear ink by Ranger and heat embossed it gold. For coloring I used Prima Decadent Pies confections watercolors.


I cut apart all the pieces of the Poinsettia to have leaces and flowers separately. I also cut all the flowers in half and arranged all the elements in circle. The next step was to die cut a circle and heat emboss the sentiment.

Day 12 | Holiday card series 2017 ft So Suzy stamps

Hello there, lovelies!
Organazing my craft space makes me post  here late at night (it's midnight here) but I still love doing it and share my cards with you!!!
So today I tried a bit different technique with my So Suzy stamps - paper piecing. It's perfect for those who don't like coloring and nightmare for those who hates fussy cutting :)
I like both coloring and fussy cutting but wanted to share with you another way of using outline stamps rather than simply color it.


I used:
Olesya's Car (yes, my design :) So Suzy stamp
Gifts Pile (again my design :) So Suzy stamp

Here are some steps:


I stamped Olesya's Car three times: two times on 2 separate pieces of red cardstock and one time on white. Cut several pieces of the car out of one of the red sheets, sponged them with Walnut Stain Distress ink to add dimension and those tiny pieces like headlights and side mirrors out of white cardstock and colored them in with Chameleon pens. 


I popped up bonnet, fenders with some foam tape and those tiny pieces were adhered directly to the base car.


Here you can see all the dimension.


Headlights were covered with Nuvo Morning Dew drops. I also stamped the Gifts Pile onto white cardstock and colored them in with Chameleon pens ( as i was lazy to cut out all those tiny presents).
I left a tiny white stripe at the very bottom of the pile to adhere it to the back side of the car's roof.


I die cut a square panel ( 9,5x9,5cm) and a circle in it. Put a piece of patterned paper under it and placed the panel with a car on top with foam tape.

Day 11 | Holiday Card Series 2017 ft So Suzy Stamps

Hello there!
Today I was super buzy swatching all my inks and oxides and it took forever to complete the misssion) that's why I'm posting this late. But I know for sure that several of you are waiting for these cards and here I am:) with sparkling eyes and gratitude in my heart for all your support!
I really love today's card ( like any other) :)


I used:


I die cut a circle and sponged it with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink and then using the same ink stamped the Coffee stain  on top to create a moon. 


I took the panel 9,5x9,5 cm and sponged it with Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. Stamped the City Scape twice in Jet Black Archoval ink and Faded Jeans Disress Oxide ink.


I placed the city in two rows and stamped the Santa Sleigh Sm in Jet Black Archival ink across the moon. Make sure to color in those gaps where the impression isn't perfect with a black marker.


To make a blizzard i used white acrylic paint ans a small brush. For the sentiment I took PTI alphabet dies and one word from the sentiment Spirit of Christmas masking off the excess.

Day 10 | Holiday card series 2017 ft So Suzy Stamps

Hello there, crafty friends!
Day 10 already, can you imagine that ?! Time flies so fast. But I'm so happy to share smth holidays related every day with you :)


I used:



I took a panel which is 9,5x 9.5 cm ( the base was 10x10 cm) and sponged it with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and a bit of Black Soot Distress ink on top to darken up the sky.  Then using a die cut circle and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink I made a moon. With white acrylic paint and a tiny brach I made falling snow.


I really love this Santa Sleigh and 8 Reindeer So Suzy stamp which I colored with my Chameleon pens and fussy cut with scissors. For the window I took one 9,5x9,5cm square die and one 4x4cm square die which i cut four times inside the large one. 


I adhered a piece of acetate to the back side of my window, applied a bit of liquid glue to the corners and sprinkled some dry clear glitter to imitate frost.  For the sentiment i used ChaiChat stickers by Tim Holtz. Stuck all elements together and my card was done!
