Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop – Partial Masking Card Technique (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Hello and welcome!

Today I have a clean and simple card to share with you along with some tips and tricks on partial masking! This card is a part of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop and features Newton’s Nook Designs Newton Loves Coffee stamp set! You know me! I just adore this sweet kitty!!! LOL!!!

You Are The Cream In My Coffee #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Loves Coffee Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with a piece of watercolor paper and die-cut a stitched scalloped border on the bottom part. Once chosen the cute kitty with coffee cup stamp, I decided to give it a spring twist and add a few tiny tulips from NND Simply Seasonal stamp set. Since I didn’t want to have some stamp lines crossing on my image, I did a partial masking both on the stamp and the stamped image.

You Are The Cream In My Coffee #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Loves Coffee Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Here’s how you can do that! Placing the flowers inside the mug means that the image has: 1. one part of the mug in front; 2. then the flowers inside and finally 3. the other part of the mug and the kitty behind the flowers.

First before inking the image mask partially with a post tape the “behind” part of you stamp that will cross with flowers later like on my picture below and stamp only the “front” part of the mug. Pay attention only to the areas that will cross later and don’t worry about the rest of the stamp.

Stamp aside on a masking paper, cut out and place the same “front” part of your mug on top and start adding flowers. Remember to mask every time all the flower parts as well.


Finally ink all the kitty stamp and stamp the whole image. Only then remove all the masks and you will finish with a cute spring scene!

Here are some more tips and tricks! Using a stamp positioner or a stamping tool for this technique will help you to align perfectly your stamp.

Remember that you can bend and shape your clear stamps on the acrylic block or the door of your stamping tool if you need to change the direction like I did with flowers here.

Use small images you have on the stamp sets to create your own matching pattern paper. I used some bold mug and coffee stamps to create a non distractive tone-on-tone background.

Craftin Desert Divas March Release – Somebunny

Hello and welcome!

Wishing you a hoppy day with a sweet bunny card! This cutie is from Craftin Desert Divas new Somebunny stamp set. It has been just released!

Wishing You A Hoppy Day #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Somebunny stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Today I chose a little bunny girl for my card and placed her on the Inside Scalloped Circle Die to create a focal point! I used a Bristol paper this time and put in work my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Love the beautiful bright colors they give! The leaf branches also come with the same Inside Scalloped Circle Die set and were color with Zig markers as well!

Wishing You A Hoppy Day #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Somebunny stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I decided to make my own pattern paper for the background by simply stamping a few egg images with a white pigment ink on a kraft cardstock. Since I didn’t want to add any other extra layers on my card, I stretched my sentiment stamp (all the stamps I used on this card come from the same Somebunny stamp set) by trimming it in half and stamped it around the circle die. Here’s the tip how to put the stamps in a perfect shape: first place the circle die onto your acrylic block or on the door of you stamping tool, then bend and place the sentiment stamp around, remove the die and stamp! This will help you to achieve a perfect curve for your card!

Finally I arranged my elements on the card base and embellished with some colorful drops from Nuvo. I used Crystal Apple Green and Crystal Ebony Black colors.

That all for today! Hope you like this sweet bunny and my card! As always thanks so much for stopping by! If you want to see this cutie in action on another card, please, check this post!

Pawsome Friends Card (ft. Craftin Desert Divas)

Pawsome Friends #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pawsome Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!

I’m up on Craftin Desert Divas blog today! I can’t stop playing with the cutest Pawsome Friends stamp set from February release! These little cats and dogs are so adorable and work well both on cards and planners!

Pawsome Friends #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pawsome Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I started by stamping a bunch of different furry friends from Pawsome Friends set on a copic friendly cardstock along with a few coordinating accessorizes and some elements that would help me building a scene. These are from CDD Build A Scene set. (The name of this stamp set couldn’t be any perfect! LOL!) I did a simple copic coloring and fussy cut all the stamps with my scissors leaving a little white edge around.

Pawsome Friends #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pawsome Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivasThen I proceeded with a background frame. Do you recognize it? It’s from CDD Fancy Frame Dies. I trimmed the scallop edge leaving only amazing faux stitching just for something non distractive extra! Yes, I like stretching my supplies!!! I added color to the background with ink blending technique and finally popped up my colored stamps on a foam tape. And, of course, couldn’t skip a few matching sequins and some shimmer!

That all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge – March 2017

Hello Spring #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Crazy Stitched Frame Dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Happy Friday!

Can you believe it’s already March? And that means a new inspiration Mood Board for the Monthly Social Media Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! As always it’s so amazing! Love all the bright spring cheerful colors on it!

mar-mood-board

My today’s card is a little bit different from what I usually do. In fact, it has only die-cut elements except of the sentiment. I thought it would be fun to stretch all the little extra dies that comes in many die sets. This particular card features Crazy Stitched Frame Dies from Craftin Desert Divas.

Hello Spring #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Crazy Stitched Frame Dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

So I die-cut the largest stitched rectangle frame from Crazy Stitched Frame Dies set out of a white card stock as well as a bunch of flowers and leaves from colorful one. But if you don’t have colorful card stock or the right colors, you can always color them with any media you have on hand.

Hello Spring #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Crazy Stitched Frame Dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I slightly shaped the flowers with a bullet point tool, arrange them on my front panel and adhered adding a flower shape sequin from CDD Spring Time Wishes mix to the center of every flower. A simple sentiment from CDD Simply Said stamp set finished the card.

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you join Craftin Desert divas March Monthly Social Media Challenge!

Craftin Desert Divas February Release – Pawsome Friends

16425843_1485234951510687_4484911748770966747_n

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!

I’ve popped in with another cute kitty card today showcasing a brand new Pawsome Friends stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas.

Just Bepaws #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pawsome Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivasToday’s card also illustrates how you can get a totally different look and style on your projects using the same supplies. Here’s the link to my previous post in case you’ve missed it.

Just Bepaws #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pawsome Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivasAgain I stated die-cutting twice the circle from CDD Stitched In Circles set once from a masking paper and then from a light gray cardstock. I applied the negative part of the circle mask to a piece of a white cardstock trimmed slightly smaller than my A2 size card base and blended inside some distress inks. My color choice was inspired by the cute triangle shape patten paper from Doodlebug’s Kitten Smitten 6×6 pad that I added later to one side of my card.

Just Bepaws #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pawsome Friends stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivasI stamped apart and colored with copic markers the cute kitties from Pawsome Friends stamp set and heat embossed with a white embossing powder the matching sentiment on the gray circle piece. Finally popped up some elements on a foam tape just to bring a little bit of dimension and interest and as always finished with a few sequins

That all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week-end and, please, check Craftin Desert Divas Event Page on Facebook for more inspiration and awesome giveaways!
