Thanks A Bunch #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Day 2 has reserved us a wonderful cluster of spring flowers that come as a one big Floral Fringe stamp set. This stamp set also have some amazing sentiments inside, but doesn’t have the coordinating dies since it was meant to use with new Frames Squared Die. A universal die is much better than the coordinating set and can be used on any project! That’s why I love the NND clever design!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new stamp Floral Fringe stamp set away to a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!


For my stop one this hop I’m sharing two ways of use of this new beautiful Floral Fringe stamp set. The first project was colored with color pencils.

Thanks A Bunch #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I used Strathmore Toned Gray Paper and VersaMark ink that is perfect not only for embossing, but for no-line coloring too. I let the ink air dry before making my coloring and spent quite some time with playing with Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils.

Thanks A Bunch #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Before attaching the colored piece to a bright pink square card base, I framed the flowers with a scalloped die from Frames Squared Die set and finally embellished the card with White Nuvo Drops and a few clear sequins.

The second card features a fun and easy way to make watercoloring. I heat embossed the flower cluster from Floral Fringe stamp set with Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder from Ranger. The heat embossed edges are deep and contains the color areas separated from each other. So you can drop a bit of bright color towards the center of the flowers and let it spread with clear water creating a little bit splotchy watercolor look.

Here’s the list of all TOMBOW markers I used on this project: n.126, n.133, n.452, n.606, n.620, n.703, n.725.

Once again I framed the colored piece and the heat embossed sentiment with Frames Squared Die  set and popped all the elements on a foam tape along with a few matching sequins.

One Layer Watercolor Spring Scene Plus Video (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

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

Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today because I have to share a sweet spring watercolor scene with some super adorable critters from Purple Onion Designs. And I know that many of you are great fans of the cuteness!

I filmed the coloring process so if you’re interested how I do my coloring, you can watch it right here!

I built a one layer scene without masking on a cold presses watercolor paper from Arches. I used the cute fox and the frog from Free Spirits stamp set first. The other elements were added from Floral End Notes, Beach Grass #2 Large and Clouds sets. All the stamping was made with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof.

The sentiment from Sweet Occasions Sentiment Set was heat embossed on a piece of a purple cardstock that I colored with the same watercolors I used on the bicycle.

Today I’m so happy to introduce you two new and absolutely adorable Bewitched and Darling Dragons stamp sets filled with lots of incredibly cute images. Both sets come with the coordinating Bewitched and Darling Dragons SugarCuts. Plus there’s an extra amazing new die set called Hocus Pocus.


My first card features Darling Dragons stamp set and Darling Dragons SugarCut.

Hocus Pocus #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Darling Dragons stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

I started with Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx black ink and Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. Once die cut and stamped some images from Darling Dragons sets, I made a super simple watercoloring.

In case you’re interested, here’s the complete list of all Zig markers I used on this card: n.36 Light Blue – n.41 Light Green – n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.52 Bright Yellow – n.83 Lilac – n.61 Light Brown.

Next I took a piece of the watercolor cardstock from Tim Holtz, masked a triangle shape with a sticky tape and added Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink plus a few blue shades: Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon. I framed the inked piece using a scalloped die from Card Front Element Builder and popped it on an A2 size white card base. Finally I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Darling Dragons stamp set, arranged all the stamps and adhered them with a bit of dimension.

You're A Wicked Good Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bewitched stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Next comes super adorable Bewitched stamp set and the coordinating Bewitched SugarCuts. Working on this project I switched to Neenah Solar White paper and Memento Tuxedo Black ink since my intention was to color the images with copic markers.

Here’re all the colors used here: skin E50-E51-E53-E55-R20; hair Y32-YR21-YR24-YR27; RV21-RV23-RV25-RV29; B21-B24-B26; YG93-YG95-YG97; BG11-BG23; YR12-YR16; C00-C1-C3; E30-E33; R00-R24-R29.

You're A Wicked Good Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bewitched stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

For the card front I used the same scalloped frame from Card Front Element Builder and Distress cardstock from Tim Holtz along with a light yellow and blue inks and an ink blending tool. Before stamping the sentiment from Bewitched stamp set, I flicked a few water droplets on the background and finally assemble everything with a bit of dimension and shimmer.

Hello Card (ft. Sugar Pea Designs)

Hello #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - HedgeHugs stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
I’m sooooooo honored and soooooo excited to announce that I’m joining a wonderful SugarPea Designs Design Team! Woo-Hoo!!! And this is my first post and project as a Design Team member quite clean and simple, but not less adorable I hope! You can check my post on SugarPea blog right here!!!

Hello #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - HedgeHugs stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

I thought it would be fun to say hello to all SugarPea Design fans and so I’m starting this Design Team with a cute hello card. Working on this projects, first of all I stamped some cute images from HedgeHugs stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Neenah Solar White paper. Next I colored the adorable stamps with copic markers and fussy cut right against the stamp lines. Next I took a black marker with a brush tip and colored all the stamp edges to hide any imperfection due to fussy cutting.

Here’s the complete list of all the copic marker I used here: E30-E31-E33-E35-E37; YR23-YR24-YR27; R00-R11-R24; YR30-E51-E40; G82-YG01; BG01; C6; 100.

Hello #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - HedgeHugs stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

I love die cut sentiments and so my choice was on a wonderful Hello SugarCut. I die cut and stacked three layers one on top of each other for an extra touch. The scalloped background frame die cut from Card Front Element Builder set was inked with Distress inks in Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen colors. I also used a wavy line from the same Card Front Element Builder set to mask the “sky” and “ground” parts.
Last but not least I added a coat of a clear glitter shimmer pen and adhered the matching sequins from Ocean Sparkly Shaker Selection sequins mix.

Hope you like this cute and simple card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

What A Wonderful Season To Celebrate #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pattern Blocks stamp set by Reverse Confetti #reverseconfetti

My inspiration card turned out clean and simple, but with a pop of bright summer colors! Today I played with beautiful Pattern Blocks stamp set and first of all stamped the flower pattern with a light beige dye ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock since my intention was to make a no-line coloring with copic markers and the stamp outlines didn’t have to show through. Please scroll down toward the bottom of this post for the complete list of copic markers I used here. Once finished with coloring which to be honest took me quite some time, I decided to frame the colored flowers with Stitched Square Confetti Cuts for an artsy look. I kept the rest of the card clean and simple as I didn’t want to disturb attention from the coloring and only added the matching sentiment which handwritten style goes perfectly with the whole design.
