Holiday Card Series 2018 – A Flurry Of Warm Wishes Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Flurry Of Warm Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowflakes stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Happy Christmas to Everyone!
Today I’ve popped in for a very quick post just to wish any of you a peaceful holiday season and share this simple watercolor card!

Flurry Of Warm Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowflakes stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Creating this card, I played a bit with my regular tube watercolors and started working with two primary shades: red and blue. I mixed a few custom colors and applied them in layers on a piece of a cold pressed watercolor paper. Next I die cut three snowflakes from SugarPea Designs Snowflake Tag set, put a generous coat of Multi Medium Mat adhesive on top and covered with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter for some extra texture. The matching sentiment from Flurry Of Warm Wishes stamp set was heat embossed on a purple stripe of paper shaped into a fish tale banner. Finally some clear sequins finished the whole project.

Holiday Card Series 2018 With Rubber Stamps From Purple Onion Designs

In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and so impatient to share last cards from my Holiday Card Series 2018! Thanks soooooo much for all your love and support! May your holiday season be wonderful, peaceful and filled with love!!!

In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

This year I had a chance to make a little collaboration with Purple Onion Designs and used for the first time their unmounted deeply etched red rubber stamps. I was really impressed by the quality of their products and even though I used a regular acrylic block for stamping instead of a usual stamping poisoning tool, I managed to achieve good impressions on the paper both with Memento Tuxedo Black and VersaFine Onyx Black inks. I haven’t had on hand the accessories necessary to mount this type of stamps, but simply used a bit of non-permanent runner tape on the regular acrylic block as I needed something to stick the stamps to their surface.

In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

My first card is turned out as a soft winter scene colored with watercolor markers and Distress inks. I used a snowman and a few scene building stamps from Purple Onion Designs, stamped them with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a Strathmore Bristol paper and then fussy cut with small sharp scissors leaving a little white edge around.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors used:
Tombow Markers n.090, n.126, n.452, n.623, n.673, n.723, n.991, n.946, n.977;
Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers n.50 Yellow, n.70 Orange, n.80 Violet.

Baby It's Cold Outside #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

I had no problems to get a very good impression with a copic friendly inks too although the stamp lines on this cute fox from Purple Onion Designs are so tiny.  Even the bold sentiment worked so well! Besides I just love this style of bubble speech!

And here’s the complete list of all the copic markers used on this card: YR21-YR15-YR68; YG00-YG21-YG23; W00-W1-W2-W3; C00-C2-C3.

Baby It's Cold Outside #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Since I wanted to keep the main focus on the fox and coloring, I opted for a soft tone-on-tone background using a few shades of blue Distress inks and a Snowfall stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs.

Last but definitely not least, we have a fun Christmas stockings. I stamped a few on Strathmore Bristol paper, the same I used on my first card, using the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

Warmest Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

The color choice was on a traditional holiday reds and greens. I used:

Tombow Markers n.N15, n.126, n.885;
Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Marker n.29 Geranium Red.

I like to get creative with the supplies and think out of boxes and so Snow Fort stamp was looking for me like the bricks on the fireplace. I inked it partially with a brown dye ink and stamped here and there creating the background on this project!!!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Holiday Card Series 2018 – Joyful Tidings

Joyful Tidings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Poinsettia Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing another holiday card with beautiful poinsettias!

Joyful Tidings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Poinsettia Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start I took Neenah Solar White paper and die cut a bunch of small elements from Poinsettia Blooms Die Set. Then helping myself with a stamping positioning tool for a quick stamping, I added the outlines on the die cuts using the matching Poinsettia Blooms stamp set and a copic friendly black ink. Next I proceeded with coloring using copic markers as you guessed!

In case we’re wondering, here’re all the exact copic markers I used on this card: YG21-YG93-YG95-YG97; YG17-YG67-G28; G09; R22-R24-R27-R29-R39.

Joyful Tidings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Poinsettia Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Creating the background, I played with a fun Argyle Stencil Set. I used three different tones of Distress green inks: Twisted Citron, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and shifted both layers of Argyle Stencil a few times to achieve a full pattern. I also added a few water droplet and colorful splashes on top for more interest. The sentiment from Winter Memories stamp set was simply heat embossed on a piece of a red cardstock with a white embossing paste. Finally I arranged all the elements on regular A2 size card base and adhered with a bit of dimension.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

You're Snow Much Fun #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mountain Moose stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on this project I started with a die cutting process and created a snow hill using Land Borders Die Set along with the coordinating cut from Moose Mountain Die Set. Next I aligned the negative part of the moose in my stamping positioning tool and added the coordinating image plus the sentiment both from the same Moose Mountain stamp set using a black copic friendly ink. Before proceeding with coloring, I prepared a regular A2 size card base, inked it with a light blue tones of Distress inks and then added a snow pattern through Petite Snow stencil using a white embossing paste. While the embossing paste was drying, I colored the moose with copic markers and finally popped everything together using a foam tape for a bit of dimension.

Celebrate #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Celebrates stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I took Strathmore Bristol paper, die cut using Newton Celebrates Die Set and stamped the coordinating images from Newton Celebrates stamp set. Next I colored all the cute critters and a few accessories with a water based markers.

I wanted the colored critters become a main focus on my card and so I kept all the rest clean and simple. The sentiment from the same Newton Celebrates set was heat embossed on a piece of a purple cardstock and a tone on tone white embossing through Confetti stencil gave a finished touch.

Cheers! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's New Year stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Small, but not less adorable Newton’s New Year stamp set can be paired with the largest Newton Celebrates set or used on its own.

Cheers! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's New Year stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Creating this card, I used the same NND products, but gave to this card a colorful twist with a bright background. And so the images were die cut using the coordinating Newton’s New Year Die Set from Bristol paper, stamped with a waterproof black ink and colored with water based markers. The background was inked with Mustard Seeds, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress inks. Next I applied the same Confetti stencil that I used on the first card and added a tone on tone a pattern on top with the same Distress inks along with a few water droplets.

In case you are curios, here’s what I used for coloring this card:
TOMBOW MARKERS: n.126, n.623, n.673, n.723, n.947, n.977.
