Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and so impatient to share last cards from my Holiday Card Series 2018! Thanks soooooo much for all your love and support! May your holiday season be wonderful, peaceful and filled with love!!!

In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

This year I had a chance to make a little collaboration with Purple Onion Designs and used for the first time their unmounted deeply etched red rubber stamps. I was really impressed by the quality of their products and even though I used a regular acrylic block for stamping instead of a usual stamping poisoning tool, I managed to achieve good impressions on the paper both with Memento Tuxedo Black and VersaFine Onyx Black inks. I haven’t had on hand the accessories necessary to mount this type of stamps, but simply used a bit of non-permanent runner tape on the regular acrylic block as I needed something to stick the stamps to their surface.

My first card is turned out as a soft winter scene colored with watercolor markers and Distress inks. I used a snowman and a few scene building stamps from Purple Onion Designs, stamped them with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a Strathmore Bristol paper and then fussy cut with small sharp scissors leaving a little white edge around.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors used:
Tombow Markers n.090, n.126, n.452, n.623, n.673, n.723, n.991, n.946, n.977;
Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers n.50 Yellow, n.70 Orange, n.80 Violet.

I had no problems to get a very good impression with a copic friendly inks too although the stamp lines on this cute fox from Purple Onion Designs are so tiny.  Even the bold sentiment worked so well! Besides I just love this style of bubble speech!

And here’s the complete list of all the copic markers used on this card: YR21-YR15-YR68; YG00-YG21-YG23; W00-W1-W2-W3; C00-C2-C3.

Since I wanted to keep the main focus on the fox and coloring, I opted for a soft tone-on-tone background using a few shades of blue Distress inks and a Snowfall stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs.

Last but definitely not least, we have a fun Christmas stockings. I stamped a few on Strathmore Bristol paper, the same I used on my first card, using the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

The color choice was on a traditional holiday reds and greens. I used:

Tombow Markers n.N15, n.126, n.885;
Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Marker n.29 Geranium Red.

I like to get creative with the supplies and think out of boxes and so Snow Fort stamp was looking for me like the bricks on the fireplace. I inked it partially with a brown dye ink and stamped here and there creating the background on this project!!!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Tatiana
