Happiness Is... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sip And Stories stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I played with amazing coffee themed products from the NND last release: Sip & Stories stamp and die sets plus Mugs stencil. To start, I used the coordinating Sip & Stories Die Set along with Copic X-Press paper to die cut all the shapes with Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. The coordinating Sip & Stories Die Set came really handy this time to achieve all the small pieces and saved me lots of time. I used the negative parts of the dies inside the stamping positioning tool to help me with the alignment during the stamping process.  Memento Tuxedo Black ink was an obvious choice for the alcohol markers.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors used by me for coloring: COPIC MARKERS skin E0000-E00-E11; hair E50-E53-E55-E57; E; R20-R22-R24-R27-R46; YG21-YG01-YG23; G20-G24; Y11-Y15-Y17-Y21; YR21-YR12-YR14 B91-B93-B95-B99; RV00-RV02-RV04-RV21-RV25;V04-V06; BG10-BG23; T0-T3.

An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was masked with a strip of the sticky tape. I inked the top part of the card front through Mugs stencil with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink, then lift the stencil and added Antique Linen Distress ink across the whole area. I simply stamped the sentiment below the inked portion and started assembling all the elements together popping some colored stamps on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look. A generous coat of a clear shimmer pen and a few crystal clear sequins.

  1. What a fun card! Love all those stacks of colorful books & cups of coffee. The girl on your card must really love to read & drink coffee (Just like me).
