SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #56

Stay Salty! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mermaid Kisses stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

Today is my turn to get you inspired for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up challenge! I came up with a cute little mermaid card featuring just released and so mermaizing Mermaid Kisses stamp set!

In case you want to play along, as well, here’s how you can do that: you have all month to play along and make a project using just the inspiration, just the sketch or Mix it Up and use both! It is totally up to you! You can find all the rules at SugarPea blog right here!!!

I started working directly on the background and inked a wavy portion through another new Wave stencil with Broken China Distress Oxide ink. I used Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock and though was able to add some water droplets and colorful splashes on top. Next I framed the card front with a stitched lines by using SugarCut Card Front Element Builder die set and proceeded with the main images.

I quickly die cut all the elements using the coordinating SugarCut Mermaid Kisses and made the stamping of all the outline images from Mermaid Kisses stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Next I simply colored all the elements with Tombow markers and finally popped them on a wavy background. Super fun and easy!

As always I’m leaving you all the exact colors I used here: TOMBOW n.N35, n.N65, n.126, n.133, n.451, n.452, n.856, n.912, n.925, n.947.

Oh Happy Day Card (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Oh Happy Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

Today I’m sharing a sweet all occasion card that involved a little color pencils coloring and some die cutting!

To start I picked adorable Potted Plants And Herbs stamp from Purple Onion Designs and stamped it on a kraft cardstock. I like the color of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and how the color pencils look on it. And since I haven’t used a kraft base for while, I decided to give it a try today!

I stamped the images from Potted Plants And Herbs set with MFT black Hybrid ink, fussy cut with my sharp small scissors and colored with colored pencils. I used Faber-Castell Polychromos brand today for coloring. The background was made from the same Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I die cut the matching stitched panel and circles combining SugarPea Designs Card Front Element Builder with Newton’s Nook Designs Frames Squared Die Set. I also prepared a simply stamped sentiment from Purple Onion Design’s Carnival/Fair Blurbs stamp set. I just love those adorable little speech bubbles! Assembling all the elements together, I played with different layers by gluing some elements directly to the card front and popping some others on a foam tape or doubled up foam tape.

Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #100 Plus Video


Hello and welcome!

So happy that you’ve joined me today since I’m taking part at the Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paw Challenge #100! Wow!!! What a great occasion to get the paws extra inky!

Ciao #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There would be no purr-rect challenge without giveaways! Right?! So be sure to pop at Inky Paws Challenge blog for all the details! You still have a week to play along. Deadline to enter is Friday, June 28, 2019 at Midnight CST. The winners will be announced on the NND blog the following Monday.

I like to challenge myself and so, working on this project, I decided to combine the Sketch Challenge #1 with the Color Challenge #76 since its colors are the same as on Italian flag and the Theme Challenge #19 (use watercolors). Plus I used one of my favorites Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set!

Curios how it turned out? So please, watch the video below!!!

For the die cutting, I used Newton Dreams of Italy and Frames & Flags Die sets. The kitty was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and for the background I switched to a medium gray dye ink, but both elements were made on Fabriano Hot Pressed Extra White Watercolor paper.

The sentiment comes from the same Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set and was heat embossed on a piece of a black cardstock with VersaMark clear sticky ink and a fine white embossing powder.

Today’s Introductions include… super sweet Cool Treats stamp set and the coordinating SugarCut Sweet Treats. Plus we have an amazing Wave Stencil perfect to add an extra summer touch to you paper projects.

I started my project with the cutest little penguin and a bunch of popsicles die cut from Strathmore Bristol paper with SugarCut Sweet Treats. The coordinating dies make it so easy to work with multiple images! Next I obviously stamped all the outline illustrations from Cool Treats stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and colored everything with Tombow markers.

The background was embellished with a fun zig zag stitch and then a circle window was added in the center of the rectangle panel by using Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles and Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts. Before assembling all the elements together, I felt like the colored stamps were needed something to go behind and so I flipped through my stash and glued directly to an A2 size card base a “happy” pattern from Sugar & Spice Paper Pad. As for the sentiment, I simply heat embossed it on a piece of a black cardstock with a fine white embossing powder.

Today’s Introductions include… fabulous Mermaid Kisses stamp set filled with lots amazing images and cute sentiments and the coordinating SugarCut Mermaid Kisses. There’s a new stand along Scale Cover Plate die too that is big enough to cover the whole card front!

For my stop on today’s hop, I came out with a cute under the sea scene! To start, I dei cut a mermaid plus a few small images from Strathmore Bristol paper using SugarCut Mermaid Kisses. Next I stamped the coordinating images from Mermaid Kisses stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and proceeded with coloring.

I used Tombow markers today paired with a small water brush from Pentel: n.055, n.195, n.665, n.723, n.905, n.912, n.925, n.933, n.942, n.946.

It's Your Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mermaid Kisses stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Instead of using Scale Cover Plate as a die, I placed a squishy rubber mat under the paper into the “sandwich” for the die cutting machine, ran it through and finished with an embossed pattern for the background. I took a small rectangle die from Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles Die Set and made an extended window using a partial die cutting technique. I also prepared on a piece of a watercolor cardstock a splotchy background by smooching Distress inks with a piece of a clear plastic. In terms of colors, I applied Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio shades. Completing the watercolor background, I heat embossed some fish schools and bubbles with a white embossing powder. Finally I started assembling all the elements together by popping them on a foam tape for a dimensional look. I finished this card with a heat embossed sentiment from the same Mermaid Kisses stamp set.
