Cold Weather Brings Friends Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fireside Friends stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

And here’s my cute card for you featuring super sweet Fireside Friends! I LOVE so much this cute stamp set for a whimsical style and a fantastic big scene ready to go on the card front! So no masking is needed, just stamp the image and you are good to color with any color media you like. In fact, Fireside Friends are purr-fect for coloring on the go!

So I made this clean and simple card spending some time on watercoloring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and added a fun interactive mechanism for a surprise element! Chibi lights couldn’t be any perfect for this sweet scene and the fireplace and so I built a simple circuit following the instructions that comes with a Starter Kit from Chibitronics! I put the “battery house” under the kitty stamp so that I could leave a little note to the recipient inside the card, telling to touch the kitty for a little surprise!!!

Since I wanted the light shows up more through the card front, I partially cut the image following the fire stamp line with my exacto knife and colored all the edges with a black marker to hide any imperfection from cutting. Then I adhered a piece of vellum to the back side of the panel and slided a piece of a foam tape between the vellum and the fire to raise the cut part! The transparency of the vellum let the light come through, but hides the interactive elements!

Feline Festive! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Ornamental Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

And here’s my cute Christmas in July project for you! It’s never too early to start making Christmas cards! Right?! LOL!!! I picked up Ornamental Newton stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs that was dyeing in my stash from last Christmas and never had a chance to be kissed by ink.

I think that this adorable image is so purr-rect for a suspended spinner card and so I made a mirror stamping of the adorable mischief, fussy cut both stamps and made a super easy watercoloring with a regular watercolors. Before I moved ahead creating the spinner element, I painted all the edges with a black marker to hide any imperfection from cutting. I used a sticker maker from Xyron to glue the stamps images together since it helped me apply evenly the adhesive all over the surfaces without having the excess.

Then I switched to the Teresa Collins Mega Runner by Xyron to put all the card together!

Finally I added a few pine branches to emulate Christmas tree die-cut from NND Pines & Holly die set and finished with a simple stamped sentiment from the same Ornamental Newton stamp set.

Easy Suspended Spinner Card – Stretch Your Digital Stamps Card Series

 

Happy Ho-Ho-Holidays #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Surfing Santa digi stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas


Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy to bring you my daily post at Craftin Desert Divas blog! Today I’m sharing two cute Christmas in July projects featuring super adorable Surfing Santa and Merry & Bright Digital Stamps. The inspiration came from the amazing mood board that Craftin Desert Divas posted for their July Monthly Social Media Challenge. Look at those wonderful, cheerful and bright colors!

Today I’m going to illustrate the idea how you can get more out of your digital stamps and create very easily suspended spinner cards! The interactive cards are so fun to create and receive, but sometimes they can become a little bit tricky to make without proper supplies! For suspended spinner cards you have to do a mirror stamping if you work with regular clear stamps. That means you have to get a stamping tool or at least a stamp positioner, a mirror stamp block and a specific ink! Well, with digital stamps even the beginner carmakers can create a mirror image in no time at all and without any specific stuff!

Happy Ho-Ho-Holidays #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Merry&Bright digi stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

First of all upload and open the “png” digital file of the desirable image you want to work with. CDD has tons of adorable digital stamps in their online shop and they all come with the png file I’m talking about! Then adjust the size of the stamp so that it suits your card base! Copy and paste the same image once more and then simply flipped it horizontally! Easy peasy! And there’s no need to have any specific illustrator program for that! If you are on Mac you can do it in “Pages” and “Word” works fine for Microsoft users!

I made a few attempts putting this type of card together and here’s the easiest way to do that! Once printed, fussy cut your stamps with scissors right on the edge and proceed with coloring. I used copic markers this time and as alway leaving you all the exact marker numbers I used at the bottom of this post!

Then use any black marker you have on hand and paint the trimmed edges to hide any imperfection from fussy cutting. Adhere both images from the back side sandwiching a tiny string inside!

Prepare you card base and another additional rectangle, aline them together and die-cut a circle. I used CDD Inside Scalloped Circle and Stitched In Circle Die set here! Assembling the card, I placed the suspended spinner element in the center of the circle, used a strong adhesive to glue both edges of the string to the card base and added on top the additional panel aligning the circle parts to hide the strings!
