Design Team Inspiration for So Suzy Stamps

It's time for new inspiration from the design team at So Suzy Stamps!  Today, I'm featuring several stamps new and old from the shop, on my scenic holiday card.  From the newest release, I'm using the Buck and Doe set, Tree by Olesya, the small Open Stars, Pointy Stars and an old favorite, Oh Holy Night.





Here are some of the supplies I used to make this:  distress ink and oxides (Ranger Ink Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Fossilized Amber), water based markers (Marvy Le Plume II), Strathmore watercolor paper, Decoart Satin white paint, Ranger blender tool, white gel pen, Memento black dye ink, Misti stamp positioner, die cut circle, white cardstock, black cardstock, stitched dies, hand crank die cutting machine, Versamark, Nuvo black embossing powder, craft heat tool, water brush, water bottle mister, paper towel


1.  First, I heat embossed my tree with Nuvo embossing powder and colored with my water based brush markers, diluting some of the color with a water brush and blotting with a paper towel.  Then, I fussy cut it.





2. Trim a piece of watercolor paper large enough to layer onto 5x7 inch cardstock.  Use a large circle punch or die cut circle approx 1.5 to 2 inches and add a tiny bit of adhesive tape on backside to hold it down on watercolor paper.




3.  Blend Fossiled Amber around the lower outer edge of moon.  Blend Faded Jeans distress ink with blender tool around entire rest of the watercolor paper, taking care not to cover the yellow.  Layer on top with Wilted Violet Oxide ink and add Faded Jeans oxide ink.  Spray water from a water bottle into your hand and splatter the paper.  Let sit for a few seconds then blot with paper towel.  Heat dry.





4.  Use a wet toothbrush dipped in white paint and splatter your inked cardstock.  Make sure you do this in a box to avoid splattering your craft area.  Heat dry.  Remove the die cut circle and stamp sentiment across the moon with black dye ink.

5.  Use white cardstock and trim 2 "snowy hillsides" or use stitched dies to achieve this.

6.  Stamp the buck in black ink just above the top snow slope.  Ink and fussy cut the doe and pop up with foam on the 2nd piece of white cardstock, next to the popped up tree.

7.  Stamp your stars and color in with a white gel pen.




I just love this peaceful scene!  It really is easy to do, too.
