Hello #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Peony Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is focusing on another new and so incredibly gorgeous floral stamp set called Peony Blooms that comes with the coordinating die set. These stamps are such a beautiful addition to the NND floral collection and will be loved by all their fans for sure.

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

I find that when you work with such fabulous images there’s no need to put much into a card design. Instead, I prefer to sit down and just enjoy coloring. Yes, I like to color a lot!!! LOL!!! And so I went for a no-line coloring with colored pencils showcasing new Peony Blooms  stamp set.

Hello #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Peony Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with Neenah Desert Storm cardstock which is my favorite kraft shade and stamped a few peonies with a VersaMark ink. Then I made all the coloring with Polychromos colored pencils and worked one petal at a time trying to add a bit of shading and highlights. Once finished, I die cut all the flowers and leaves with the coordinating dies along with a postage stamp edge frame from just released Framework Die set. Assembling the card, I popped some flowers on a foam tape, heat embossed the sentiment from the same Peony Blooms set on a black cardstock with a white embossing powder and fussy cut it by hand. A few matching sequins added a finish touch to this lovely card.

Crafting Desert Divas – May Release Replay – Mermaid Trolls

Time To Shell-ebrate #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mermaid Trolls stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Happy Monday!

It’s time to give another look at the new May release from Craftin Desert Divas and I’m starting with a mermazing Mermaid Trolls stamp set, of course! You can find the sneak peek post featuring this stamp set right here.

Time To Shell-ebrate #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mermaid Trolls stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I’ve created a fun bubbly pattern for the under-the-sea scene to pop on my card base. I stretched new Beach Scene Stencil and Sorted Shapes Stencil for that by simply masking first a group of three circles and then a single one. The color trough the stencils was added with an ink blending tool using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink. So easy and fun!!! Next I came to the cutest mermaid troll stamp and used a waterproof black ink, a Bristol paper, a water brush and water based markers for stamping and coloring. Then I fussy cut the colored stamps with sharp scissors leaving a little white edge around and simply added the matching sentiment from Mermaid Lagoon stamp set. I few clear droplets and some white details added with a gel pen finished this cute and simple card.

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: DAY TWO OF THE 5th BIRTHDAY BASH (ft. Reverse Confetti)

Hello and welcome!!!
It’s Day 2 of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI and today I’m sharing two cute square cards made with new May Release from Reverse Confetti!!!

Grateful For My Friendship #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pattern Blocks stamp set by Reverse Confetti #reverseconfetti

So let’s start with amazing new Pattern Blocks stamp set! It doesn’t have the coordinating dies, but RC are reveling this month beautiful Diamond Stripe Square die! The square inside this die fits perfectly the square stamps from Pattern Blocks stamp set! You can mix and match these wonderful products as you wish plus they ares super easy and fun to use!!!

My first card is a sweet friendship one! First of all I die cut Diamond Stripe Square from Strathmore Bristol paper and used the inner square to stamp on top a beautiful flower pattern from Pattern Blocks stamp set with a VersaFine black ink. Then I made a simple watercoloring using my Zig Clean Colour Real brush markers and set the watercolor piece aside to let it dry.

Grateful For My Friendship #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pattern Blocks stamp set by Reverse Confetti #reverseconfetti

Meantime I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Pattern Blocks stamp set, popped the diamond die on a foam tape and adhered it to a slightly larger gray cardstock. The final measures of this square card is 4½” x 4½”. Then I added the watercolor piece inside the square window and finally popped the sentiment. I really like how this card turned out!

Grateful For My Friendship #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pattern Blocks stamp set by Reverse Confetti #reverseconfetti

Then we have another square card where I used the same Pattern Blocks stamp set and Diamond Stripe Square die in a very different way!

Love My Tribe #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - My Tribe stamp set by Reverse Confetti #reverseconfetti

Before I start talking about this card, I have to introduce you another new stamp set called My Tribe which has so many fun, bold and big handwritten sentiments inside!!!

And now a few words about my second card. This time I stated with a bit of ink blending. I used Distress Oxide inks in Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch colors along with an ink blending tool and prepared an ombré piece. Once dried it was die cut with Diamond Stripe Square die the same that I used on my previous card.

Love My Tribe #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - My Tribe stamp set by Reverse Confetti #reverseconfetti

Then I die cut once more the inner square from a plain white cardstock and stamped on top with a very light gray ink the fun chevron pattern from Pattern Blocks stamp set and let it air dry for a while since my intention was to heat emboss on top. I don’t use a black embossing powder since it’s too tricky to manage and it always leaves you with some black spots here and there. Instead I stamped the sentiment from My Tribe stamp set with VersaFine black ink. It’s a pigment ink and that means that it stays wet for a bit. This way I managed to sprinkle a fine clear embossing powder on top and zapped it with my heat gun. Finally I assembled all the elements with a bit of dimension and a few clear sequins.
