Hear Ye #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Knight's Quest stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m so excited to introduce you today another fabulous stamp set called Knight’s Quest that coordinates perfectly with release just yesterday Once Upon A Princess set. The fabulous stamps from both sets can be easily mixed and matched and give you infinite possibilities to play, creating any kind of paper crafting projects suitable for girls and boys. Knight’s Quest set comes with the coordinating dies.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving this 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!

A little bit of sparkle added from Starfield Stencil was a must for my card. I used once more the same technique and sprinkled a clear sparkling embossing powder on top of the “fresh” embossing paste once lifted up the stencil, let everything air dry for an hour or so and finally heat set the embossing powder with a heat tool, creating an easy non distractive background for the card.

The super cute images were stamped on Strathmore Bristol paper with a waterproof ink since my color choice was on Zig markers. I also created a sort of my own patterned paper by repeatedly stamping the arrow from the same Knight’s Quest set. And I just couldn’t skip some tiny shiny details applying Glossy Accents here and there!

Reach For The Stars #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cosmic Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today I’m SUPER EXCITED about new Newton stamps that come with cute Cosmic Newton set!!! After his western adventures, the adorable kitty decided to visit other planets and galaxies!!! Isn’t he super cute in his space coveralls?! And, of course, you can get the coordinating dies with Cosmic Newton Die set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a $20 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

This stamp set just screams for me to be used with some interactive elements! You can make the cute mischief slide and spin on your fun projects! And the galaxy background is, of course, another must for me on the space theme cards! And no need to tell you how well it coordinates with new Starfield Stencil!!!

Reach For The Stars #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cosmic Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stretched my watercolors this time and worked on a watercolor paper! I stamped the kitty with a waterproof ink, die-cut with the coordinating Cosmic Newton Die and made a little bit splotchy non perfect watercoloring! Then I proceeded with the galaxy background: first I made a colorful undertone painting on some areas with bright yellow, orange, red and pink colors; I heat set this first layer and brought on top more dark blue, violet and black colors and finally flicked some white gouache on top creating tiny stars! Once the background was dry, I created an interactive element using a specific die, but you can easily make the similar effect with two circle nesting dies! Before assembling the card, I applied throung Starfield Stencil a white embossing paste to bring more stars to my backgroung and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Cosmic Newton stamp set!

The spinner mechanism is very easy to assemble too: punch or die-cut two circles slightly larger than the spinner channel. Put one circle directly on the card base and adhere another on top with a foam tape, but above the background panel this time. Then use the top circle as a base for you interactive element! Just be sure to use a glue that dries non sticky for easy spinning!

Craftin Desert Divas – June Release – Dino Dig


Happy Sunday!

Today I’m sharing a project showcasing the fantastic Dino Dig stamp set from the new Crafting Desert Divas June release! Isn’t he darn cute this adorable dino dashing in his red jeep on my card in a perfect Indiana Jones’ style!!!

Roaaar! #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Dino Dig stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I built a little cute scene using a scalloped circle die-cut out of CDD Stitched In Circle Die set and some images from Build A Scene stamp set.

Roaaar! #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Dino Dig stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The cute dino was colored with copic markers (as always you can find all the exact colors I used here at the bottom of this post) and new Distress Oxide ink in Peeled Paint color applied directly to the card base matched perfectly the YG copic family I used on the main stamp.

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release and Giveaway – Winston’s Tee Time

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Newton’s Nook Designs May Release!

I’m so excited to introduce you today the very first stamp set of this fantastic release and I’m sure you’re going love it since it’s couldn’t be any cuter!

Dad You're Tee-riffic #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston's Tee Time Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is showcasing a brand new fun, cute and absolutely adorable WINSTON’S TEE TIME stamp set along with the coordinating dies. It’s small, but filled with the amazing images and great sentiments! I LOVE this clever stamp set because masculine cards haven’t ever been so easy to create. In fact, I just couldn’t leave you with only one example!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving this 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!



And here’s what I came up with. I started with a watercolor shaker card totally inspired by the golf theme so a green watercolor background and some holes were a must-have! LOL!

Dad You're Tee-riffic #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston's Tee Time Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started by stamping the cutie bear, the flag and a bunch of balls to fill my shaker area with a waterproof ink on a watercolor paper and made my watercoloring both on the stamped images and the background. I worked in layers starting very light and progressively adding more colors to the areas that are in shade. Once the watercolor elements were dry, I die-cut them using the coordinating dies that come with WINSTON’S TEE TIME stamp set and three holes on my background piece with a small circle die. At this point I also added my sentiment from the same stamp set stamping it with the same black ink I used before.

Dad You're Tee-riffic #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston's Tee Time Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Assembling the card, I popped up the watercolor background on a foam tape and filled the shaker area with the golf balls and some matching sequins and beads before attaching it to the card base. Finally I popped up on a foam as well Winston and other small element for a bit of dimension.

My second version is a copic one. But I just couldn’t help playing more with holes and the golf theme making the cutie Winston peeking out from inside.

Meet You At The 19th Hole #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston's Tee Time Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

So I switched to the copic friendly ink and paper and stamped, colored and die-cut with the coordinating dies the images from WINSTON’S TEE TIME stamp set. As always at the bottom of this post you can find all the exact copic markers I used.

Then I proceeded completing the card base. I trimmed an additional A2 size panel and die-cut three holes on it. Placing it on top of my card base, I marked the areas matching the holes and added a bit of color inkblending blue-green shades of Distress inks. Finally I popped on top with a foam tape the additional panel and the colored images and finished with a heat embossed sentiment on a black cardstock.

Masculine Card (ft. Crafting Desert Divas)

Wishing You A Birthday Filled With Adventures #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Norse Warriors stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Hello and welcome!

I’m so excited to bring you my daily post at Craftin Desert Divas! Well, today I’m going to talk about masculine cards. I know many of you struggle with them like me, but when I saw a fantastic sentiment “Wishing You A Birthday Filled with Adventure…” from Norse Warriors stamp set, I decided to play with it and fill a box with some great masculine accessorize stamps to match the scheme!

Wishing You A Birthday Filled With Adventures #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Norse Warriors stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

So I stamped with a waterproof ink a few images from Norse Warriors stamp set on Bristol paper, colored them with Zig markers trying to make marked shadows and highlights, fussy cut right up against the edge and corrected any imperfection from cutting with a black marker. While the watercolor pieces were drying, I worked on background making ink blending with Distress inks and flicking after some water droplets in order to bring some interest. I die-cut a Stitched Box out of kraft card stock and made the matching card base for my project!

Wishing You A Birthday Filled With Adventures #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Norse Warriors stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Finally I stamped the sentiment from the same Norse Warriors stamp set and adhered a few sequins to the card just for something little extra!

That all for today! Hope you like this clean and simple card! And as always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
