Butterfly flutter ft So Suzy stamps

Hello there, dear readers!
How are you doing? Have you seen lots of butterflies this summer? It seems to me that I've seen not enough and decided to make one more butterfly card to share with you :)


Materials used:
Butterflies Solid Lg  by So Suzy ( designed by me:)
Happiest Moments by So Suzy
Jet Black Archival ink
White gel pen
Holographic embossing powder
White and kraft carstock
Stitched circle dies


Stamped the solid butterflies onto separate piece of paper using different cool shades of Distress Oxide inks. Even though I stamped in warm shades either, sooner I realized that i needed only cool shades.


Using my MISTI tool i stamped the sentiment using Jet Black Archival ink directly onto a kraft card base. 


After i stamped the butterflied the inks were wet enough to heat emboss the sentiments. To do it I used cheap holographic embossing powder. It's clear with different tiny sparkling elements. You can see it at the pics.


Then I fussy cut all the butterflies using my scissors. That was very relaxing :))


Die cut a circle and cut off the area where it overlapped with the sentiment. Placed the butterflies along the left side of the circle. I think the card has turned out great :)




Thank you so much for stopping by! Have am absolutely amazing day!

Glitter polka dot background

Hello there! 
I know you like glitter as much as I do and ready to sparkle all day:)) So today I'd like to share with you a card made with my fave glitter paste so far by Bo Bunny called Sugar. It's clear with holographic super tiny sparkling elements. Looks just awesome!


Materials used:
- Chipped Sapphire Distress ink
- Monarch ( butterfly stamp) by So Suzy stamps (designed by me:)
- Lots of Love stickable stencil by Bo Bunny
- Gold super fine embossing powder by Ranger
- dry powder paints Magic paints by Fabrika Decoru
- white gel pen
-white cardstock



First I sponged distress inks , sprinkled with water and let them dry. Using Sugar glitter paste is a true pleasure as it applies magically and dries super fast so make sure you clean all the supplies immediately. The stickable stencil helps to make your pattern super neat.


I heat embossed my butterfly in gold onto watercolor paper and using Magic paints ( similar to watercolor but in powder) and waterbrush colored the butterfly in. Wanted to make her galaxy looking :)


I cut one butterfly in half so that the card could open and placed another one right behind it.


Here's how the paste and stencil look like. Super cool stuff!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an awesome day!

My universe card ft Lawn Fawn

Hello there!
Finally I found time for my favorite challenge blog with Lawn Fawn products called Lawn Fawnatics, because I simple couldn't miss any of their challenges. This time it's called - #10 Custom Sentiments. I do love custom sentiments,  they bring smth personal to the cards. And... I made a love card to my hubby with my fave theme ever- universe, galaxy , stars... so you understand what I mean))


One brilliant idea came to my mind - to die cut a panel with Snowy Backdrop die by Lawn Fawn and make it a galaxy with constellations connecting those dots and stars with a white gel pen. Now I don't need to buy some extra contellation background stamps as I can make my own with Lawn Fawn die. That's amazing. Before using a white gel pen I sponged the panel with Oxide inks in Broken China + Faded Jeans, framed with Chipped Sapphire regular Distress ink. Sprinkled some water to get that awesome oxidized effect. 


To send my critters from Joy to the Woods set by Lawn Fawn to space I needed to make two helmets with silver circle die cuts and pieces of vellum. Colored my animals with alcohol Chameleon pens and pencils.


To make the sentiment I used my fave Smitty's ABCs alphabet set by Lawn Fawn.

So I used the following LF products:
- Snowy Backdrop die
- Joy to the Woods stamp set
- Smitty's ABCs stamp set

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a starry day! :)

Hello, friend card

Hello there, crafty friends!
I like fairies so much and Mo's digital pencil store has tons of them, they all are so cuute! This cutie is from a set called 3 baby fairies. Just look at that lady bug!  Do you know that we have challenges at Facebook here and this month it's a sketch.

I colored the image with alcohol Chameleon pens and some accents with Chameleon pencils. 
Sponged the background with regular Distress inks: Chipped Sapphire and Salty Ocean. White dots - with a white gel pen. Cut the grass with Lawn Fawn Meadow Borders die and sponges with Twisted Citron distress ink, love this fresh and bright green color.


Covered the die cut word with Wink of stella glitter pen. Love how it look on black ❤



I absolutely love bright colors going together with nutrals.

Wedding congrats card

Hello there!
Sometimes it feels that wedding cards can only look like flowered bed but I'd like to show you a different variant of a wedding congratulation card.
I love autumn and autumn themed cards, by accident our family friends have their wedding this autumn and i'm a bit tired of flowers this summer ;)) so one brilliant idea has come to my mind)) autumn is associated with bright colorful leaves and berries, so why not make a wedding card with those leaves, looks different, agree?



I made this card for Chameleon blog where you can find downloadable instructions to this card with a full list of used supplies. One thing I want to mention that all the coloring was done with alcohol Chameleon pens and some accents with Chameleon colored pencils.





I love this card so much, it looks so different in comparison with usual wedding cards, I also glad that I was abla to make this card without using flowers))
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an amazing day!

Vellum butterflies ft So Suzy stamps

Hello there!
I'm super happy that the latest release was welcomed very warm. That's the best gift for me, for real! Can't wait to see what you all will create using these stamps!! Today is my turn to show you a card and here it is. I wanted to make a simple but very dimensional card with lots of air and open space.



I used here:
Olesya's Butterfly Glitter White Blizzard Nuvo Crystal Drops
Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops
Coastal Breeze Ink Bite Set ( Egyptian Sand ink cube)

Sunny and BrightOlesya's Butterfly Monarch

Glitter White BlizzardMorning DewButterflies Sm. Solid

Coastal Breeze Ink Bite SetThis is the Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented. MISTI's simple hinge design provides consistent stamping for the novice or experienced crafter. This tool will accommodate both the red rubber cling mount stamps or clear stamp. A foam pad is included with your MISTI to raise the cardstock when stamping with clear stamps. Your MISTI will provide a platform for multiple stamp techniques that are impossible with traditional stamp mounts. Use the two included magnets to quickly and easily position your cardstock, and the included grid paper makes it easy for you to layout and align your card's design.




Using my MISTI tool I stamped the solid butterflies directly onto a kraft cardbase using So Suzy ink bite cube in Egyptian Sand. Stamped the sentiment with Jet Black Archival ink. Made several loops with jute and placed around the phrase.


Fastened the jute wreath with a stapler. By the way, those staples can be left as they are, they look like embellishment.


Heat embossed the butterflies with white super fine powder by Ranger on vellum. Look, these stamps are very versatile. They go well with those who loves coloring and those who doesn't, you can simply heat emboss them, or stamp onto a colored cardstock, or patterned paper, or foil them, possibilities are endless. And they look very pretty every single time!


I adhered die cut leaves and flowers to the wreath and butterlies. The final touch ws to add glitter nuvo drops to the butterflies' wings and clear nuvo drops to the leaves. They really look like rain drops or dew, so pretty :)


Here are some close up shots to look at all the details.



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

Here I used my fave tulip bouquet stamp called Tulips



I cut a penal slightly smaller than a base. Die cut a circle in it.


Using two circle dies of different diameter die cut a circle frame and some paper lace using my new Lace is grace die by our Russian brand Mimicut.


Stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink to color it with alcohol Chameleon pens, added some more depth with Chameleon wax based pencils.


And of course a bow to add some grace to the card.


I like drawing these tiny white dots to attract more attention to the image or to get rid of lots of empty space on the card.
