Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge December 2017

'Tis The Season #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winter Village Digital Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Friday!

It’s time to play again with the Monthly Social Media Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! And here’s another inspirational project based on the beautiful December mood board!

Today’s card turned out almost one layer. I played with the gorgeous Winter Village Digital Stamp Set, printed a simple frosty scene on a laser printer and just enjoyed coloring it with copic markers. In case you’re interested, please, check all the exact copic numbers I used here at the bottom of this post.

Once finished with coloring, I added a sentiment from Holiday Sweaters stamp set stamping it directly on my panel with a black ink. And finally added a frosty feeling applying first Multi Medium Matte adhesive and then sprinkled on top a clear glitter. I set everything aside and let air dry before shaking off the excess and gluing the colored scene to the regular A2 size card base.

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

Happy Friday!

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!

I’m super excited to be a “Guest Sweetie” today over at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog! Have you heard about them? This is such a SWEET Challenge Group! For each challenge they post an amazing cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?

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!!!

For each challenge they post an amazing cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?Many Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Orange, green and brown seemed to me a perfect color combo for an autumn thanks card! Plus it’s always so handy to have a few thanks cards in the stash! Playing around the autumn theme, I decided to use beautiful leaves from Newton’s Nook Designs Autumn Leaves die set as a focal point.

Many Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


I die-cut some leaves and acorns from a watercolor cardstock along with a cute little tag from NND Tags Times Two die set and blended on top a few shades of Distress inks.

Many Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge – September 2017

A Note Of Thanks #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Border dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Happy Friday and welcome!

I’m up on Craftin Desert Divas blog today with a card that is focused on dies and was inspired by the beautiful moad boad made for the CDD September Monthly Social Media Challenge! The current theme is autumn and it couldn’t be any perfect for this time of the year! Look at those gorgeous autumn colors and amazing images!

Of course, I had to play more with the fantastic dies from CDD September release. Those beautiful stitched trees come with Fall Border Dies set.

A Note Of Thanks #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Border dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The idea was to create an autumn scene with a circle focal point and add a bit of dimension for some inserest. This project is super easy to recreate and doesn’t require mad coloring skills at all. My choice were Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since I just love their bold vibrabt colors, but you can use any watercolor media you have on hand or even you Distress or dye inks. My win win combo with Zig markers is Strathmore Bristol paper and a small water brush from Pentel. I made a simple splotchy non perfect watercoloring and while the dies were drying I started working on the card base. I scored in half 11″ by 4¼″ piece of a red card stock and cut out an additional slithtly smaller white panel where I die cut a circle using Stitched In Circle Dies.

A Note Of Thanks #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Border dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Finally assembling the card I adhered the watercolored trees directly to the card base using a foam tape and then popped on top the circle piece where I previously stamped a sentiment from Harvest Happiness stamp set. Of course, couldn’t skip a few matching sequins from Maple Leaves Sequins set.

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you’ll join Craftin Desert divas September Monthly Social Media Challenge for a chance to win some amazing prizes! All you need to do is to create a project inspired by the current mood board and using at least one CDD brand product!
