Delivering A Little Holiday Cheer! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Today I played with super cute Woodstock (winter fox mailing envelope), Timothy (hedgehog with gift) and Mailbox stamps. Since I went for copic coloring, I used Copic X-Press paper and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I fussy cut all three stamps with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around, and then proceeded with coloring.

A beautiful Bakery Background was stamped with a lighter gray dye ink and quickly colored with copic markers, as well, without adding any shading since I want to keep the main focus on the cute critters. For a bit of holiday cheer, I added some falling snowflakes through Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil with a white texture paste. I used the light gray card base trimmed and scored from Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to an extended A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″). I popped on top the matching to mail box theme a postage edge rectangle die cut with Newton’s Nook Designs Framework Die Set from Bazzill Peppermint cardstock. Once arranged the colored background and critters, I finished with a heat embossed sentiment from Holiday Messages stamp set placed on a stripe of a black cardstock and a few clear sparkling sequins.

As always, I’m sharing with you a complete list of all the colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS YR000-YR12-YR14-YR16-YR18; R30-R32-R35-R39; E40-E41-E42-E43-E44; YG01-YG03-YG17; W00-W1-W3; C00-C1-C3-C4; T0-T1; E30; BG0000-BG01-BG02-BG05-BG10.

Holiday Card Series 2020 – From Meow To You (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

From Meow To You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - A Kitten Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a cute holiday kitty card featuring the most adorable new A Kitten Christmas stamp and die sets on a simple slimline card!

The minute I saw the new gorgeous kitty designs from Newton’s Nook, I immediately felt in love with them! And so I just cannot escape to play more with these cuties! To start, I die cut all three cats using the coordinating A Kitten Christmas Die Set, Strathmore Bristol paper and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. As usual, I saved and used the negative parts of the dies to used them later inside the MISTI tool for a perfect alignment while I was stamping the open images from A Kitten Christmas stamp set with waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I colored all the elements with Tombow markers and set aside to dry.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors used by me on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N75, 158, 452, 665, 703, 725, 899, 946, 947, 977.

The slimline card base was trimmed from Neenah Solar White paper as 8 1/2″ x 7″ piece and then scored along the narrow side so that the final card measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. I die cut the additional faux stitched frame and three squares using the same Neenah Solar White paper for a perfect match with the card base and NND Slimline Frames and Windows Die Set. Each square piece was inked with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink from the top edge and then embellished with a falling snow effect applied with a plain white embossing paste through Petite Snow stencil. The matching kitty themed sentiment was simply stamped in the conner of the central square with the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it gives a nice, crisp and black impression that pops agains the inked background. Finally I assembled all the elements together with a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few matching sequins.

Holiday Card Series 2020 – Merry Christmas Card For The SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #72

Merry Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowflake Tag SugarCut by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

Today is my turn to get you inspired for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up Challenge! Inspired by a not holiday October graphic and Halloween colors, I decided to challenge myself and came up with a holiday card!

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!!!

To start, I played with the colors from the picture above and inked a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Distress cardstock using Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Wild Honey Distress inks along with the blending brushes to achieve a soft transition between the colors. I flicked a few tiny drops of a pearlescent solution and set the piece aside.

Meanwhile I die cut tree big and two small snowflakes from Snowflake Tag SugarCut, using Neenah Solar White paper. I completely covered the snowflakes with Multi Medium Matte liquid adhesive using a small flat brush and then dipped them inside the jar with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter. I pressed the glitter with a tip of my finger to secure the glitter layer on the snowflakes and let them air dry for a couple of hours.

It’s so hard to catch in the pictures the beauty, vintage shine and texture of Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter, but I assure you that it looks absolutely GORGEOUS in real life. But If you want to save time and don’t get messy with glitter, you can simply die cut the snowflakes from a glitter paper.

Merry Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowflake Tag SugarCut by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

The sentiment was composed from a die cut Merry Word with Shadow SugarCut and Everyday Sentiments stamp set. I die cut the shadow layer from Neenah Solar White paper and then glued on top the black word “Merry” using the same Multi Medium Matte liquid adhesive since it dries clear and matte. The “Christmas” word was heat embossed with a fine white embossing powder on a narrow strip of a black cardstock. Finally all the elements were assembled together on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″), trimmed and scored again from Neenah Solar White paper.

Winslow & Rusty – Halloween Friends Stamp Set From Purple Onion Designs

Nothing Is Scary When We Are Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Hello and welcome!!!

I’ve popped in with a Halloween card featuring another new absolutely adorable stamp from Winslow & Rusty collection by Purple Onion Designs and illustrated by Julian Charlton.

The stamp set, used on today’s project, is called Winslow & Rusty – Halloween Friends! I decided to challenge a little myself and switched to color pencils. I started with Strathmore Toned Gray paper since I wanted to make the little ghost look transparent and the light gray background seemed to be a perfect base. I stamped the cute friends with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored the whole scene with color pencils from Faber Castell (Polychromos line) and Prismacolors Premier brands.

Nothing Is Scary When We Are Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Once finished with coloring I framed the card front with a faux stitched rectangle from SugarPea Designs Card Front Elements 3 SugarCut that covers perfectly an extended A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card front. The sentiment was heat embossed on a stripe of an orange cardstock using a fine white embossing paste. I shaped the sentiment into a fish-tailed banner with my scissors and popped it underneath the colored friends. A matching bow and some hand drawn accents made with a white gel pen finished this simple card.

Holiday Ornament #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Roundabout stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The last day of the holiday release has reserved us a super cute Holiday Post stamp set that comes with the coordinating Holiday Post Die Set. No need to tell you that I’m totally in love with the adorable critters! Plus there’s an amazing Christmas Roundabout stamp set that enriches the NND Roundabout collection and as all other stamps coordinates perfectly with Circle Frames Die and Banner Trio Die sets.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both new Holiday post and Christmas Roundabout stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

The super adorable critters from Holiday Post stamp set are a way too cute and don’t need much thinking on the card layout! In fact, I tried to highlight the beautiful design of this set with coloring and kept the background very simple. To start I die cut from Copic X-Press paper the critters, using the coordinating Holiday Post Die Set and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. As always, I saved and used the negative parts of the dies to help me with the alignment while I was stamping the open images from Holiday Post stamp set using MISTI tool and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I spent some happy time coloring the image with copic markers.

And, as always, here’s the complete list of all the COPIC MARKERS used on this project: cat YR30-YR31-Y21-YR24; dog E0000-E30-E31-E33-E35; T0-T1-T3; R00-R20-R22-R24-R46; YG00-YG01-YG07; G20-G24-G46; BG10-BG11-BG23.

An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper. I masked two sides of the card front with a sticky tape and inked at an angle the light blue background with Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass dye ink and the blending brush, trying to give an ombré effect that fades into white. Next I stamped the sentiment from Holiday Post set and added a few snowflakes to the background by stamping some with Simon Says Stamp Surf Blue ink, heat embossing the others with a white embossing powder or simply drawing a few with a white gel pen. Finally I popped the colored critters on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few clear sequins.

My second card that features Christmas Roundabout stamp set, turned out as a holiday ornament. This card can also be used as a Christmas home decor or as a gift tag. This time I started directly with stamping on Copic X-Press paper using Christmas Roundabout stamp set. I framed the stamped image with a faux stitched die from Circle Frames Die Set and colored everything with copic markers.

These are all the colors used by me on this card: COPIC MARKERS R20-R22-R24-R26; BG10-BG11-BG23; YG00-YG01-YG07; T0-T1.

A slightly larger scalloped die from the same Circle Frames Die Set was used to create the card base. I die cut the die twice from a light gray cardstock and then glued together the top parts of both layers. An ornamental silver sparkling top was also die cut twice from Ornamental Shaker Die Set and adhered from both sides on the card base. Finally I assembled all the layers and finished with a matching grayish silver bow and a few clear sparkling sequins.
