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!

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.

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!

Today I’m sneak peeking a darling stamp set called LADYBUG GARDEN  filled with lots of cuteness!!! I picked an adorable bear image from this set dressed like ladybug that reminds me so much Anna Geddes’ pictures! Have you ever seen her gorgeous babies?

Sending Bugs And Kisses #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Ladybug Garden stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

My media choice was copic markers this time and as usual I worked with a copic friendly ink and paper. 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!

Assembling this simple card, I prepared an A2 size card base from a bright green cardstock, a stitched rectangle die-cut from a watercolor paper with Fancy Frame Die and watercolored with the matching green shade, a white circle frame die-cut from Inside Scalloped Circle Die set three times and glued together; and finally put my cute bear on an action wobble for some fun!

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!

Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #47

ipcsidebarbadge

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #47 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

You're Amazing #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The current challenge is a color one. And I LIKE so much the bright juicy colors from the inspiration graphic! So I hope they will inspire you to play along, just make a project using pink, orange, yellow and teal inspired by the graphic you see below paired with at least one Newton’s Nook Designs brand stamp or die and upload it here for a chance to win a store credit at Newton’s Nook Designs online shop. You can create a card, a tag, a scrapbook page, a treat bag or any other projects related to the papercrafting.

I just can’t stop playing with the amazing Lovely Blooms stamp set and this time I went to emboss resist and added color with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since they are always a winning choice for bright and colorful projects!

You're Amazing #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started working on Bristol paper and stamped a bunch of small flowers and a few leaf branches from Lovely Blooms set with a clear sticky ink. I heat embossed all the flowers with a white embossing powder and added color with Zig markers. Once everything was dry, I die-cut all the elements using the coordinating dies from Lovely Blooms die set.

Then I prepared a watercolor background using a traditional watercolor paper since it holds water much better than Bristol one and a traditional teal watercolor from Schmincke. I also tried to heat emboss the matching white sentiment directly on the background, but it was not bold enough to create a contrast so I decided not to give up and fix it putting a small tag on top where I simply stamped with a black ink “You’re Amazing” sentiment from NND Beautiful Plumage stamp set. A few black details were a perfect finish touch!

That’s all for today! Hope you like my simple card and it will inspire you to join this new challenge! I’ll catch you up on the Inky Paws Challenge Blog! Have a great week!

I came up with a super simple, clean and bright card today!

You're Wheelie Great! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Scoots By stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Stating working with a copic friendly paper and ink, I stamped the cute kitty from NEWTON SCOOTS BY stamp set and spent some time coloring him with copic markers. As always I’m leaving all the exact numbers of markers used at the bottom of this post, but don’t feel like you need to have copic markers or make a super fancy coloring! With this fantastic image you can’t go wrong! Just grab any coloring media you have on hand and have fun!

You're Wheelie Great! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Scoots By stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since I’ve put so much in coloring, I decided to make a simple background and keep the main focus on the kitty. I die-cut the colored stamp, a few white clouds and a small heart with the coordinating dies that come with NEWTON SCOOTS BY set along with a simple circle and added color to the background inkblending Distress inks.

You're Wheelie Great! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Scoots By stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Finally I simply stamped with the same black ink I used before the matching sentiment and added a few sequins. Some finish touches – a bit of shimmer from Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter pen and a coat of Glossy Accents –  completed the card.
