Happy Birthday Friend Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Happy Birthday Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - You're My Type stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today and to share with you a cheerful and bright friend birthday card!

I’m playing with two wonderful and one of my favorites You’re My Type and Meadow Motifs stamp sets plus some watercolor markers.

Happy Birthday Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - You're My Type stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

To start, I die cut the typewriter and a few floral branches and leaves using the coordinating You’re My Type SugarCut and Meadow Motifs SugarCut. I chose to work on Strathmore Bristol paper since it makes the blending with watercolor markers very easy. Next I stamped the outline images from You’re My Type and Meadow Motifs stamp sets with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. Finally I colored all the stamped elements with Tombow markers.

In case you’re wondering, here’s the complete list of all the colors used on this project: TOMBOW n.N79, n.133, n.177, n.835, n.845, n.847.

A regular A2 size card base was prepared from Neenah Solar White paper and embellished with some lovely and kind words from Everyday Sentiments stamp set. I used a very light gray dye ink this time both for stamping and flicking some tiny water droplets on top. Before popping the colored stamps on a foam tape, I added a sentiment from You’re My Type stamp set with the same black ink used previously for stamping. A few clear sparkling sequins added a final touch to this colorful card.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this birthday friend card and give it a try! As always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

When Life Gives You Lemons #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lemon Twist stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White paper slightly smaller than a regular A2 size card base and stamped the lemon slice with a light yellow ink. I also prepared a mask out of a masking paper so that I could add a whole fruit behind with the same light yellow ink I used before.

I colored the stamps with copic markers first and then added some details with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils blending together different colors.

Here’re the colors of the copic markers used on this card: COPIC Y00-Y11-Y13-Y15; YG21-YG93-YG95-YG97.

Hey, Gull Friend! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gull Friends stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The super fun Gull Friends were stamped with Hybrid black ink from MFT and colored with copic markers too.

I used here COPICS T0-T1-T2-T3-T5-T7; Y11-Y17-Y18; YR23-YR27-E08-E39-E49; RV00.

Hey, Gull Friend! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gull Friends stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I prepared a regular A2 size card base plus another slightly smaller rectangle where I partially die cut a circle window. Creating a little sea scene I inked waves and clouds through new Waves & Splashes and Clouds edge stencils with two different shades of blue inks. I also added a die cute wave line in front of the Gull Friends by die cutting it from Sea Borders Die Set.

Arranging all the elements on a foam tape, I added a simply stamped sentiment from Gull Friends set on a die cut Speech Bubble and finished with a few matching sequins.

You're One In A Melon! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Melon stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Last but definitely not least comes adorable kitty from Newton’s Melon stamp and die sets. Once again I used Neenah Solar White paper and MFT Hybrid black ink paired with copic markers for coloring the sweetest stamp.

Here’s the complete list of all the color used: COPIC cat E40-E41-E42-E43-E44-E49 plus T1 and R11-R12; YG00-YG01-YG05-YG09; R02-R05-R09-R89; 100.

You're One In A Melon! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Melon stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I decided to keep the whole project with a limited color combo and so I inked pink clouds through new Clouds edge stencil with Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral Distress inks. The grass portion was added through another new Hills & Grass edge stencil with Twisted Citron and Moved Lawn Distress inks. I framed the sweet summery scene with Frames & Flags Die Set and popped on a 4 Bar while card base since it fitted better the size of the stamp.

Let's Party #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Zoo Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today NND is revealing two new wonderful Zoo Party and Tropical Fringe stamp sets. These sets don’t have the coordinating dies, but feat perfectly Frames Squared Die Set. And you know how I love such clever products!!!

My first card features super adorable Zoo Party stamp set. I used Strathmore Bristol paper and VersaFine Onyx Black ink for stamping. Next I proceeded with coloring the fun animals with Tombow markers.

And here’s the complete list of all the colors used on the first card: TOMBOW n.N15, n.N65, n.055, n.090, n.133, n.195, n.703, n.899, n.946, n.947, n.977, n.985.

The card base was embellished through new wonderful Hibiscus stencil set. I used the flower layer with Squeezed Lemonade and Spun Sugar Distress inks while the leaves from the second layer were added with Twisted Citron color. Finally I popped the colored square that was simply trimmed following the edge lines, on a foam tape and embellished the card with a few matching sequins.

Working on beautiful flowers from Tropical Fringe stamp set, I switched to a cold pressed watercolor paper from Arches. I stamped the whole image with VersaFine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it with a fine cleat embossing powder to make the stamp lines more black and the watercoloring process more easy.

Aloha Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Tropical Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

In terms of colors my choice was on Tropical Fiesta Watercolor Brush markers from Altenew. Once dried, I framed the Tropical Fringe with Frames Squared Die Set.

The squared card base was embellished through another new Pineapple stencil set. I wanted to keep the main focus on the colored Tropical Fringe and so I used Antique Linen Distress ink on both layers of the stencil with a light yellow touch of Squeezed Lemonade on the pineapples and a bit of Twisted Citron for the leaves. Finally I simply popped the scalloped frame on foam tape and embellished the card with a few matching sequins.

Stretch Your Craft Supplies – Customized Colorful Glittery Embossing Paste Plus Video (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Dude! Take It Easy! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hey Summer stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today and to share with you a sweet and bright summer card with a bit of shimmer and shine!

I’m playing with amazing Wave stencil perfect for cool summer backgrounds and so adorable Hey Summer stamp set. Curious?! So, please watch the video below!

I masked the card edges with a Post-It Removable Label Tape and inked Simon Hurley’s Clear Skies Dye ink through Wave stencil. Next I mixed Translucent Embossing Paste from Dreamweaver with some clear glitter and applied it on top of the blue undertone. I ended up to have a customized and shimmery embossed background perfect for summer time!

Dude! Take It Easy! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hey Summer stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

While the background was drying, I die cut some shapes from Strathmore Bristol Paper using Hey Summer SugarCut and stamped the coordinating images from Hey Summer stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Next I colored all the stamped elements with Tombow markers.

In case you’re wondering, here’s the complete list of all the colors used: TOMBOW n.055, n.062, n.133, n.173, n.195, n.443, n.476, n.725, n.606, n.676, n.752, n.856, n.933, n.985, n.990, n.993.

Dude! Take It Easy! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hey Summer stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Finally I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Hey Summer stamp set with a fine white embossing  powder on a piece of a black cardstock and popped all the elements on a foam tape for a bit of dimension and playful look.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #100 Plus Video


Hello and welcome!

So happy that you’ve joined me today since I’m taking part at the Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paw Challenge #100! Wow!!! What a great occasion to get the paws extra inky!

Ciao #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There would be no purr-rect challenge without giveaways! Right?! So be sure to pop at Inky Paws Challenge blog for all the details! You still have a week to play along. Deadline to enter is Friday, June 28, 2019 at Midnight CST. The winners will be announced on the NND blog the following Monday.

I like to challenge myself and so, working on this project, I decided to combine the Sketch Challenge #1 with the Color Challenge #76 since its colors are the same as on Italian flag and the Theme Challenge #19 (use watercolors). Plus I used one of my favorites Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set!

Curios how it turned out? So please, watch the video below!!!

For the die cutting, I used Newton Dreams of Italy and Frames & Flags Die sets. The kitty was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and for the background I switched to a medium gray dye ink, but both elements were made on Fabriano Hot Pressed Extra White Watercolor paper.

Ciao #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The sentiment comes from the same Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set and was heat embossed on a piece of a black cardstock with VersaMark clear sticky ink and a fine white embossing powder.
