I played again with an adorable Ladybug Garden stamp set and experimented a little bit with a new to me color media! In case you missed, you can catch up my sneak peek project featuring this set right here!

I stamped three times with VersaMark Onyx Black ink the same cutie bear dressed like a ladybug and made my coloring with Polychromos and Prismacolor Premier colored pencils! I’ve just got a colorless blender pencil from Prismacolor brand and couldn’t wait to try it! I added a very simple non-directional shade on the edge of the stamps, layering a few similar pencils, and then blended the color towards the center.

Since the inspiration for the color combo came from a rainbow plaid pattern paper I had on hand, I decided to add it to my project, die-cutting a scalloped frame from Fancy Frame die set and popping the bears on a foam tape above the heat embossed sentiment that comes with the same Ladybug Garden stamp set.

That all for today! Hope you like this colorful card! As always thanks so much for stopping by! And please, check Craftin Desert Divas Event Page on Facebook for more inspiration, amazing projects and sneak peeks from the Design Team, freebies and awesome giveaways!

Craftin Desert Divas – May Release Day 1

Hello and welcome!

I’m sooooo excited to be up on the Craftin Desert Divas blog today sharing a few cute projects!!!

Thanks A Bushel #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Today is also the first day of the Craftin Desert Divas May Release and so I just couldn’t help playing with the FANTASTIC new stamps and dies! In fact, I mixed and matched a few new stamps and dies and have two fun projects to share!

Thanks A Bushel #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The first clean and simple card features an AMAZING new MARKET STAND stamp set. I particularly LOVE this one since it filled with a super adorable images that offer you infinite possibilities of use and suit any kind of paper crafting project: cards, tags, scrapbook layouts, planners, treat bags!

Thanks A Bushel #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Since the stamps from MARKET STAND set are so adorable, I thought that a clean and simple look would be perfect for my card! I started with A2 size card base made out of a Bristol paper and created a non-distractive background, inkblending a very light blue Distress ink from one corner. Then I went a little bit crazy, stamping and fussy-cutting a whole bunch of the images from the set. I worked with a copic friendly paper and ink at this point since my intention was to color everything with copic markers. Please, scroll down towards the bottom of this post to see all the exact copic marker numbers I used for coloring!

Thanks A Bushel #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Once completed coloring, I stamped the sentiment from the same MARKET STAND set, popped up all the elements on a foam tape and added a few crystal clear sequins as a finish touch.

My  second card is completely different from the previous one! In fact, I used dies and digital stamps all from the CDD new May release and a few fun watercolor techniques as well!

I started with a 3 by 9 inches watercolor panel and the slightly larger coordinating card base that once scored measures 3 ½ by 9 inches. First I die-cut the watercolor paper 3 times using new GARDEN BORDER die set and ended up with 4 more or less equal pieces. I smooched some Distress inks onto a craft sheet, spritzed them with water and put my watercolor paper on top. I repeated the process a few times, heat drying the paper every time. The top die-cut part was colored in a light blue shade since it was going to be a sky portion for my scene, on the others I used a few brown shades, instead, to emulate soil.

Plant Smiles #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Garden Border die set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

While the watercolor elements were drying, I printed on a Bristol paper with a laser printer a few cute digital stamps: No Bunny Like You, Carrot Harvest and Harvest Crates; watercolor them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, cut out right against the stamp edge and hide any imperfection from cutting, applying a black marker all around every image.

Plant Smiles #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Garden Border die set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Finally I literary rooted my carrots into the soil part as GARDEN BORDER die makes the fantastic marks into your paper that allow you to insert any kind of plant inside, and adhered the top part with a foam tape for some dimension and interest. The sentiment from LADYBUG GARDEN stamp set was simply heat embossed at the bottom with a white embossing powder.

That all for today! Hope you like these lovely cards! As always thanks so much for stopping by! And please, check Craftin Desert Divas Event Page on Facebook for more inspiration, amazing projects and sneak peeks from the Design Team, freebies and awesome giveaways!

Scooting By… Hidden Pull-Tab Interactive Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Scootin' By #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Scoots By stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

I have so many reasons to be extremely excited today since first I’m on the Newton’s Nook Design’s blog today showcasing this fun hidden pull-tab interactive card, second I have a project featuring my ever favorite kitty Newton and the last but not the least I have a VIDEO TUTORIAL for you on my YouTube channel!!!! Woo-hoo!!!

Scootin' By #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Scoots By stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

When I saw this super adorable kitty on Vespa scooter from Newton Scoots By stamp set, the idea to make a pull-tab card immediately popped up in my heard because this adorable stamp couldn’t be any purr-fect for interactive cards!

I started working on Bristol paper stamping the cute mischief with a waterproof ink, coloring him with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since I want vibrant and bright colors for this project and die-cutting the image with the coordinating die from Newton Scoots By Die Set.

Scootin' By #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Scoots By stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the sentiment and the sky portion on the background I used the same Newton Scoots By stamp set. I trimmed in half the sentiment with scissors so that I could stamp one portion on my card front and leave the rest for the hidden message. Then I heat embossed some clouds with a white embossing powder and applied a light blue color to the sky, ink smooching Tumbled Glass Distress ink. For the bottom part of the background, I used both positive and negative parts of the grass die from Land Borders Die Set. The negative part of the die was used as a stencil along with Mowed Lawn Distress ink while the positive part was ink blended with Twisted Citron Distress ink.

Please, watch the video below for the interactive part instruction!!!

That’s all for today! Thank so much for stopping by and hope you like this fun interactive card! If you have any question, please leave it below in the comment area and will be happy to answer it!

Once finished fussy cutting all the colored elements leaving a little bit of a white edge around the stamps, I prepared a background. First I made a circle mask, die-cutting a circle from Stitched In Circles die set out of a masking paper and ink blended some matching Distress inks inside. After removing the mask, I flicked a few times some water droplets on top to achieve a splotchy watercolor look and then finished adding a Scribbled Circle Die on top.
