You Make Cold Days Warmer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Toucan Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There couldn’t be any proper date for this hop because today December, 8 in Italy we celebrate Feast of the Immaculate Conception! It’s day off and it’s tradition to deck the halls right on this day!!! So meanwhile you’re reading this post, I’m putting up my christmas tree, lights and nativity scene. It really beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! LOL!!!

For this hop I created a clean and simple card with a pop of bright colors on a tropical birds dressed up for holiday period! I thought it would be fun to give another “life” and interpretation to the summer stamps and transform them into the holiday ones! And so I started stamping with a black waterproof ink on a hot pressed watercolor paper the cute toucans from NND Toucan Party stamp set along with some winter accessories from Newton’s Holiday Mischief and Santa Paws Newton sets. I colored everything with regular watercolors, fussy cut right up against the stamp lines and colored all the edges with a black marker to hide any imperfection due to the cutting. For the background I used a negative part of the circle die-cut from a masking paper, added Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers color. I let everything dry before applying a textured snowflakes through gorgeous Snowfall stencil  using a white embossing paste. Finally I assembled everything popping up some elements on a foam tape and simply stamping the sentiment and a few beautiful snowflakes with the same black ink I used before.

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge December 2017 & Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Brewed With Love #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Brewed With Love Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Happy Friday!

Today I’ve popped in with a super cheerful and bright card inspired by December Monthly Social Media Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! Of corse, the current theme is holiday season! Love that gorgeous bright reds againts white backgroud with a pop of green on the CDD December mood boar!!! It looks so perfect and inspiring for the winter and holiday projects!!!

And here’s what I came up with!

Brewed With Love #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Brewed With Love Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I just coudn’t miss just released and so adorable Brewed With Love stamp set designed for the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop.


And so I simply stamped the cute buddies holding hot coffee mugs with Memento Dye Ink because it’s save for alcohol markers and my intention was to color them with copics. In case you’re interested, please, cheack all the exact copic numbers I used here at the bottom of this post. Once finished coloring, I framed the cute scene die-cutting a scalloped rectangle frame and then die-cut an octagon using CDD new Inside Scalloped Octagons set from a masking paper. I applyed the negative part of the mask around the stamped image and added color with Distress oxide ink in Peacock Feathers color and an ink blending tool. Once removed the mask, I added a snow effect with a White Gelly Pen.

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #434 (ft. Craftin Desert Divas)

 

Happy Sunday!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Borders Die Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Today’s inspiration graphic has a limited color palette and it’s soooooo beautiful and elegant!!!! The design of this project is a take on my own card that I made a few years ago! It’s still so popular on Pinterest that I decided to recreate it using Craftin Desert Divas products!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Borders Die Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

First of all I made a bit of die-cutting preparing the circle window and the winter scene. I really love Fall Border Dies set since it’s so beautiful and versatile! You can cover the themes all year round with it!!! For the card base I used a very light blue cardstock and added some texture with a winter feel through Snowflake Flurries Stencil. Once the embossing paste was dry, I started assembling the whole scene giving a lot of dimension with a foam tape and finally added faux snow using Snow Marker. Here’s a little tip for you: for a better control I squeeze the liquid from the marker on a piece of paper or acetate and use a tooth pick to apply the liquid to the desirable spots. Snow Marker needs to be heat settled with a heat gun! But be sure not to overheat it since it can start looking burnt and assume brown shades! Guess how I know it!!! LOL!!!

Here Comes Santa Paws Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Here Comes Santa Paws #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Thursday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you another look at the super fun and cute Santa Paws Newton stamp set!

Here Comes Santa Paws #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

You probably know that I’m a huge fan of the cute mischief designed by NND and love to color him like my kitties. And so I just couldn’t let Santa Paws Newton stamp set die in my stash without a chance to appear on this year holiday cards.

Here Comes Santa Paws #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookI started this card by stamping the kitty image and the little mouse with a copic friendly ink on a copic friendly paper since my intention was to make coloring part, as you may guess, with copic markers. LOL!!! Once finished with coloring, I die-cut both stamps using the coordinating dies and worked on the layout! I added some coordinating colors to the background through Snowfall stencil with Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac Distress inks and an ink blending tool. Next came a focal point created out of a tag and stitched snow slops die-cut from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set  and Land Border Die Set. Once added the colors with the same Distress inks I used previously on the card base and the texture with a white gel pen to the little snow scene, I heat embossed the sentiment with Liquid Platinum embossing powder from Ranger, popped a few elements on a foam tape for some dimension and finally added a few non distracting sequins.

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

Tatiana

Craftin Desert Divas – Monthly Social Media Challenge November 2017

Christmas Wishes #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Arctic Pals stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Happy Friday!

It’s time to play again with the November Monthly Social Media Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! Here’s the beautiful Mood Board created for this month!

Today I went for a super clean and simple card featuring so adorable Arctic Pals stamp set. I find that when you work with cute images there’s no need to add much to the card otherwise you risk to overwhelm it! Though I just couldn’t resist to add a little bit of interest creating a shaker window! LOL!!!

Christmas Wishes #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Arctic Pals stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I started stamping with a copic friendly black ink the cutie bear, coloring it with copic markers, of course, and fussy cutting with my scissors. Then I prepared a card base and a shaker element die-cutting first a scalloped rectangle and then a scalloped circle. I adhered a double sided foam tape to the white panel and added sequins in the window spot before attaching it to the card base.
