May Your Day Bllom With Happiness #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Well, today is all about a gorgeous stamp set called MARKET STAND. I particularly love this new set since it has a great variety of images inside and allows you create a fancy market scenes along with more clean and simple cards! It will work great for any other paper crafting project as well: scrapbook layouts, tags treat, bags and even planners!

My today’s choice were copic markers and so I stamped a handsome girl from MARKET STAND set on a copic friendly paper with a copic friendly ink, of course. Please, scroll down towards the bottom of this post to see all the exact copic marker numbers I used for coloring! I LOVE coloring so I spent a little bit of time on coloring process, but don’t feel like you need to do the same! I highly encourage you to try a very simple basic coloring with any color media you have on hand! I’m sure you will like it! Keep practicing and your coloring skills will improve soon!

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.

I finished the card popping on a foam tape all the colored elements, adding the sentiment from the same MARKET STAND stamp set and embellishing with a few matching sequins from Arizona Skies mix.

That all for today! Hope you like this clean and simple 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 Sneak Peek – Garden Bugs

Hello and welcome!

So happy you’ve joined me today and so excited to start the release week from Craftin Desert Divas with a bright summer feeling card! Can you believe it’s already May? Yes, time flies by and summer colors pop somehow in my head. So I’m so enthusiastic to see a lot of wonderful, cute and fun summer products in the Craftin Desert Divas May release.

Oopsy Daisy #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Garden Bugs stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

On the first day we are sneak peeking GARDEN BUGS stamp set filled with a lot of cute stamps and some great sentiments. This new set have a few fantastic small images as well and so I decided to stamp them in a random patter on a watercolor paper and made a super simple watercoloring adding bright summer colors.

Oopsy Daisy #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Garden Bugs stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

While the watercolor piece was drying, I started working on my card base. I went for a 4 Bar size card this time since the images I used for watercoloring, seemed to be more balanced on a slightly smaller than usual A2 card. Ones scored it measures 4 7⁄8 by 3 1⁄2 inches. Then I prepared another slightly smaller piece out of a white card stock, die-cutting on it a scalloped circle from CDD Stitched In Circles die set to form a sort of a window that would frame my watercolor piece. The shape of this die seems to go so well with the cute images from the watercolor part because reminds me flowers.

At this point I added the sentiment from the same GARDEN BUGS stamp set and assembled everything gluing the watercolor panel directly to the card base and popping up on top the die-cut part with a foam tape.

Masculine Card (ft. Crafting Desert Divas)

Wishing You A Birthday Filled With Adventures #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Norse Warriors stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Hello and welcome!

I’m so excited to bring you my daily post at Craftin Desert Divas! Well, today I’m going to talk about masculine cards. I know many of you struggle with them like me, but when I saw a fantastic sentiment “Wishing You A Birthday Filled with Adventure…” from Norse Warriors stamp set, I decided to play with it and fill a box with some great masculine accessorize stamps to match the scheme!

Wishing You A Birthday Filled With Adventures #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Norse Warriors stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

So I stamped with a waterproof ink a few images from Norse Warriors stamp set on Bristol paper, colored them with Zig markers trying to make marked shadows and highlights, fussy cut right up against the edge and corrected any imperfection from cutting with a black marker. While the watercolor pieces were drying, I worked on background making ink blending with Distress inks and flicking after some water droplets in order to bring some interest. I die-cut a Stitched Box out of kraft card stock and made the matching card base for my project!

Finally I stamped the sentiment from the same Norse Warriors stamp set and adhered a few sequins to the card just for something little extra!

That all for today! Hope you like this clean and simple card! And as always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge – March 2017

Happy Belated Birthday #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Inside Scalloped Circles Dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Happy Friday!

Can you believe March is almost gone? But I have one last card to share with you today inspired by Mood Board for the Monthly Social Media Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! As always it’s so amazing! Love all the bright spring cheerful colors on it!

mar-mood-board

I decided to take on my first card inspired by this mood board and interpret it in a different way! Once again I used dies, but this time I played with Inside Scalloped Circle Dies and added custom colors to the flowers instead of using color cardstock.

Happy Belated Birthday #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Inside Scalloped Circles Dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I used the largest circle die from this set to create my card base and lovely flower and leaf shape dies to embellish it creating a flower wreath around a heat embossed sentiment from Simply Said stamp set. I die-cut all the element from Bristol paper since I were going to color with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and added color in a very simple non perfect splotchy watercolor way. I adhered all the element directly to the card base and used a few black accents to bring some contrast and interest.

I created a super simple watercolor card using a bunch of SWEET stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs!!! They are from Made From Scratch (this set couldn’t be any perfect for this scheme!), Newton Loves Cake and Love & Chocolate stamp sets!

Wisking You A Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Made From Scratch Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I decided to use a gray dye ink instead of a usual black one for stamping to achieve a softer look! I used a watercolor paper and did a very simple coloring just playing with my watercolors and wet-on-wet technique! Once dried I popped up the central part on a foam tape and added a white embossed sentiment on a matching gray cardstock. I tiny die-cut heart finished the card!
