Let's Celebrate #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Yes, I’m stretching more my craft supplies! I chose Elm Puppy and Little Packages stamps, stamped them on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and colored with Tombow markers.

As always here’re all the exact colors I used here: Tombow Markers n.026, n.443, n.451, n.476, n.603, n.723, n.725, n.845, n.991.

I let air dry all the watercolor pieces and meantime prepared a square 4½” x 4½” shaker card base. To built the shaker area I trimmed another square, die cut a circle window inside, added a piece of a clear acetate from the back side and popped it of a foam tape. Before adhering the window piece, I inked the card base with Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar Distress inks and added a few matching sequins. I decided to frame the shaker window with a scalloped circle and finally arranged the colored elements along with a heat embossed sentiment from Sweet Occasions Sentiment Set.

Hope you like this sweet card! As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Stretch Your Holiday Stamps Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Eskimo Kisses #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Eskimo Kisses stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today and to share with you some ideas how you can stretch your holiday stamps and use them all year round!

Today I played with a super adorable Eskimo Kisses stamp set filled with lots of fun critters and chose two kissing penguins since they go perfectly with Valentine’s Day that is approaching so fast! And a few “love” theme cards come handy in the stash! Right?!

Eskimo Kisses #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Eskimo Kisses stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

To start I stamped a few images on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof, colored them with water based markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around.

Here’s the complete list of all TOMBOW markers I used here: n.N79, n.025, n.090, n.133, n.195, n.565, n.606, n.620, n.723, n.725, n.933, n.985.

Eskimo Kisses #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Eskimo Kisses stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

The change of a color combo is the most easy way to make your stamps look differently from what they originally were meant to be! I prepared a pinky-orange shaker window by ink blending Fossilized Amber and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks on the card front and die cutting a round circle from Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts on an additional white panel, trimmed slightly smaller than the regular A2 size card base. I filled the shaker window with some heart shaped sequins and then sealed everything. Finally I popped the colored elements on a foam tape and added the heat embossed sentiment from the same Eskimo Kisses stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Christmas Card With Summer Stamps Plus Video (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

May Your Holidays Sparkles #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cozy Campers 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 my first Christmas card this year!

May Your Holidays Sparkles #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cozy Campers stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Flipping through my stash, I found the adorable camper stamps from Cozy Campers set and thought that the small camper with the lights would be perfect for a Christmas card. I die cut a bunch of elements for my scene from Cozy Campers and Snow Globe Scenes die sets and next stamped the matching images from Cozy Campers and Snow Globe Scenes stamp sets using Memento Tuxedo Black ink since it’s copic friendly.

May Your Holidays Sparkles #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cozy Campers stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The circle window was added to the card front from Snow Globe Scenes Shaker die set and the amazing sentiment from Sentiments of the Season was simply stamped with the same black ink I used before. The versatile Bubbly stencil added a falling snow effect along with Snow Marker from Marvy brand and Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter. And now I’m leaving you with video tutorial!!!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

One Stamp Four Ways (ft. Crafting Desert Divas)

Fruity_Friends_Collage

Happy Monday Everyone!

I’m so thrilled to be on the Craftin Desert Divas blog today with a special post featuring brand new and sooooooo adorable Fruity Friends Days stamp set from the Craftin Desert Divas new July Release!!!

Love You To The Core #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fruity Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

This is a long post filled with lots of pictures and so let’s start immediately with the first card colored with copic markers.

Love You To The Core #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fruity Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I chose some cute fruity characters from Fruity Friends Days set and stamped them with a copic friendly black ink. Next I proceeded with coloring and finally fussy cut everything with sharp scissors leaving a little white edge around.

Here’s the complete list of copic markers I used here: skin E0000-E01-E02-E11-R20; YG00-YG01-YG13-YG25-YG95; R02-R05; hair Y21-YR24-YR29-E39; Y11-Y15-Y17-YR24; E33; BG00.

Love You To The Core #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fruity Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Working on the layout, I die cut three stitched frames from Fancy Frame Die Set, added a soft layer of Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink and a fun dotted pattern through Sorted Shapes Stencil with a plain white embossing paste.

Next we have a soft watercolor scene.

You're PEAR-frct #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fruity Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I switch to a Bristol paper and stamped a few adorable girls from Fruity Friends along with some small images from Garden Bugs stamp sets with a waterproof black ink.

You're PEAR-frct #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fruity Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Before making the coloring I also prepared some die cuts for the background using the same Bristol paper, Flower Border Dies and Fancy Frame Die Sets.

Finally I could enjoy watercoloring the whole card with the watercolor pencils from Prima. “The Basics” 12 piece set was more than enough for this card since you can stretch any color and create a variety of shades by adding less or more water.

Hello My Cherie #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fruity Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

My third example is this colorful and bright shaker card.

Hello My Cherie #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fruity Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Once more I started with a Bristol paper and a waterproof black ink, but gave a totally different look to this card due to Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers and their incredibly juicy colors.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors used: n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.50 Yellow – n.25 Pale Pink – n.26 Light Pink – Peach Pink – Dark Pink – n.40 Green – n.46 Mid Green – n.71 Flesh Colour – n.61 Light Brown – n.64 Oatmeal

Hello My Cherie #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fruity Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Assembling the shaker part, I prepared a watercolor background and filled the circle window with Jungle Berries Sequins mix.

Miss You Berry Much #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fruity Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Last but not least I created a colorful fruity background using small stamps from Fruity Friends set. I love to play with small stamps and give them a main focus on my cards. The patterned background is one of the easiest ways for that.

Miss You Berry Much #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fruity Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I stamped a whole bunch of images on a watercolor paper, took my regular watercolors and tried to make a non perfect, a little bit splotchy watercolor look. Next I decided to transform my pattern into a scalloped circle card with Inside Scalloped Circle Dies and finished with the heat embossed sentiment from the same Fruity Friends set put on a fish-tail banner.

Just Because Card – Stretch Your Stamps Card Series (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Just Because #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Thursday!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a card from my Stretch Your Stamps Card Series!

I really looooove Autumn Newton stamp set and when I saw the adorable kitty peeking from behind the pumpkins and apples, I thought that it would be fun to have the same image in the spring key. And so all I needed was to flip through my stash and find a few stamp sets with some flowers and leaves so that I could replace the autumn items with the spring ones. I ended up using a whole bunch of NND stuff creating this card and if you’re curios to see them all, please, continue reading this post.

Just Because #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Obviously, I started with the cutest mischief and die-cut him with the coordinating Autumn Newton Die Set, stamped and watercolored. All the stamps on this card were stamped with Versafine ink because it’s waterproof on Strathmore Bristol paper since it’s my favorite to use with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. And you can find all the exact colors I used here at the bottom of this post. Next came Holding Happiness, Deer Friend, Bitty Bunnies stamp sets and the coordinating Holding Happiness Die Set, Deer Friend Die Set, Bitty Bunnies Die Set for all the flower and leaf images. Once finished coloring, I divided the background into the sky and the grass portions with Land Borders Die Set and then popped up a stitched frame die-cutting once more the same background with Frames & Flags Die Set. I added soft non distractive colors to the background with Distress Oxide inks and an ink blending tool along with a cloudy pattern using Cloudy Sky stencil and a white embossing paste. Finally I assembled everything with some dimension and added a “Just Because” sentiment from Little Lilies stamp set on a fish-tail banner.

That’s all for today! Hope I haven’t missed anything and hope I brought you the idea how you can get more out of the staff you already have in your stash! Take another look on your favorite stamps and try to combine them in an unusual way!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
