Thanks So Much Card (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Thanks So Much #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

Today I played with the adorable Ginger (raccoon with pumpkin) stamp from Purple Onion Designs and stretched the halloween image by transforming it into an autumn thank card.

In case you’re unfamiliar with unmounted rubber stamps and how to used them, please, check this post and new Solid Clear Stamps from POD that are meant to be used as a temporary mounting solution for unmounted rubber stamping.

To start, I decided to change the color combo from traditional fall colors to something more fresh and unexpectable. The raccoon  was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on Strathmore Bristol paper since it’s my favorite combo to use with watercolor markers.

As always, I’m leaving you the complete list of all Tombow markers used on this project: n.N15, n.N79, n.192, n.243, n.373, n.743, n.772, n.850.

I masked a right bottom edge of the card base and inked it with a light mint ink. Next I added a few mint leaves on top using Newton’s Nook Designs Falling Leaves Stencil with the same mint ink. I slightly shifted the stencil and added a bit of shimmer with a clear glitter embossing paste. I let the background air dry and then popped on a foam tape the colored raccoon and the sentiment simply stamped from Everyday Blurbs with a gray dye ink. A few sequins added a finish touch to this sweet card!

That’s all for today! As always thanks so much for stopping by!

To start, I stamped on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black Happy Pumpkins stamp, colored it with my watercolor markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around. I purposely opted for a splotchy and uneven watercolor look.

And here’s the complete list of all Tombow markers used on this project: n.055, n.133, n.177, n.847, n.925, n.946, n.947, n.991.

For the background, I inked a purple rectangle and added on top Cascading Stars through the Newton’s Nook Designs stencil with a white embossing paste. Assembling all the elements together, I popped them on a foam tape for a dimensional look and added a heat embossed sentiment from Purple Onion Designs Sweet occasions Sentiment Set along with a matching orange twine.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute and simple card! And as always thanks so much for stopping by!

Fun and Easy Techniques With Stencils – Heat Embossing Tips for Newton’s Nook Designs and WOW! Inspiration Week


Hello and welcome!
Newton’s Nook Designs and WOW! embossing powders  are collaborating all week long to offer you inspiration using their products together! Both design teams will be sharing fun ways to use embossing powders on your projects using WOW embossing powders paired with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps!

Boo Hoo #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamp, dies and stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m continuing playing with stencils and going to share with you today a few tips and tricks about heat embossing. I went for a Halloween themed card and so picked a wonderful Ghosts stencil from Newtons Nook Designs paired with White Puff Embossing Powder from WOW brand.
Please check the video tutorial below to see the whole card making process.

I started with a purple A2 size card base made from Simon Says Stamp Royal Purple Cardstock. I inked the card front edges with Wilted Violet and Black Soot Distress inks and let it air dry. I treated the whole card front with a EK Success Powder Tool and smooched VersaMark ink through Ghosts stencil. Next I sprinkled the ghosts pattern with White Puff Embossing Powder and zapped everything with my heat fun.

For a more playful look I added small google eyes from Darice here and there using Glossy Accents as an adhesive since it’s super strong and dries clear. The Boo Hoo sentiments come from NND Boo Hoo stamp set. I stamped a few of them with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a piece of SSS Orange Peel cardstock and heat set with WOW Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter. I used the coordinating Boo Hoo Die Set for die cutting the speech bubbles and finally popped them on a foam tape. A few clear crystal sequins finished this cute card.

Happy Fall Card (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

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

Hello and welcome!!!

Fall is my favorite season and so I was inspired to make something very cute with a pop of bright and happy colors. I flipped through my stash and chose a few sweet stamps from Purple Onion Designs for this autumn project.

In case you’re unfamiliar with unmounted rubber stamps and how to used them, please, check this post and new Solid Clear Stamps from POD that are meant to be used as a temporary mounting solution for unmounted rubber stamping.

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

I decided to keep everything clean and simple and just enjoy coloring the most adorable stamps with watercolor markers. To start, I stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink Scarecrow, Sunflowers, Hay Bale and Beach Grass #2 Large stamps on Strathmore Bristol paper. I used the same paper for the background, but switched to a softer gray dye ink to stamp the largest image from 2 Cornfields set and then framed it in a dotter rectangle die cut with Card Front Element Builder II SugarCut from SugarPea Designs. Finally I proceeded with coloring, keeping the background softer and adding more details to the main images.

As always, I’m leaving you the complete list of all Tombow markers used on this project: n.025, n.055, n.076, n.090, n.126, n.133, n.451, n.476, n.555, n.933, n.946, n.947, n.977, n.992.

Before assembling all the elements together, I simply stamped “Happy Fall” sentiment from Sweet occasions Sentiment Set with the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink for a perfect match. A few sequins added some sparkle and finish touch to this sweet card.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute and simple card! And as always thanks so much for stopping by!

And here’s what I came up with for you today! To start, I die cut some elements from Sweet As Pie SugarCut on Strathmore Bristol paper and then stamped the coordinating images from Sweet As Pie stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I always save and use the negative parts of the die cuts for a perfect alignment into my MISTI stamping positioning tool while making the stamping.

The background made from a kraft cardstock was embellished with amazing new Leaf Cover Plate. I used it for a tone on tone dry embossed pattern. The sentiment from the same Sweet As Pie set was simply stamped on a piece of a white cardstock. Assembling all the elements together I wrapped a matching orange baker twine and cut out a fish-tail banner from Countryside Charm Patterned Paped Pad. A few sequins added a finish touch to this autumn card.
