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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Deer Friend and Grazie Cards (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend 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 two sweet and cute cards!

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

I just cannot put aside new fantastic goodies from the Newton’s Nook Designs January release without stretching them more and had a lot of fun playing again with two of my favorites! So let’s see what I came up with this time!

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

My first card features a super adorable and so incredibly cute Deer Friend stamp set. I really felt in loooove with the sweet fawns and so I grabbed the coordinating Deer Friend Die Set and die cut a bunch of elements from a watercolor paper, aligned them into my stamping positioning tool for a quick and easy stamping. Then I just enjoyed making a super simple watercoloring both on the stamps and the background with regular watercolors I have in my stash.

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once all the elements were dried, I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Deer Friend stamp set and assembled the card on a square 5″x5″ kraft base, adding some dimension with a foam tape.

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

My second card was colored with copic markers. That’s why I started it with Neenah Solar white paper and played with the super adorable couple of kitties from Newton’s Sweetheart stamp set. You know me: I just love to use stamps in a creative way. And since the kitties were reminding me my furry mischiefs, I decided to transform a love stamp into a thanks one and to make a personalized card to give to the girl who takes care of my kitties when I’m away from home! Once more I used the coordinating dies from Newton’s Sweetheart Die Set for a quick and easy die cutting. At this point I also prepared a few other die cut elements for the layout using Darling Hearts  and Frame & Flags die sets and created my own tone on tone pattern through Tumbling Hearts stencil. Coloring the kitties with copic markers I decided to try a new to me and very fun technique that made the cats look as if they were stuffed animals. And finally added “Grazie” sentiment from Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set that came sooooo handy to me because grazie means thanks in Italian.

That’s all for today! Hope you like these sweet cards! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Friday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you a fun idea on how you can stretch your holiday stamps and dies! Curious?

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This year I decided to make a stamp focus card series and invite you to get another look on the crafty products you already have in your stash or bring more ideas on the same stamp or die set so that you can decide if you really want to get it! Today I would like to reuse holiday stuff and reinterpret it in a different way! And so I’m starting with a super adorable Newton’s Christmas Cuddles set from NND. This set is meant to be a holiday one, but the cute images are so versatile that you can easily cover many other occasions. I played with the lovely couple of kitties and transformed them into a love or Valentine’s Day card.

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The kitties were stamped on a watercolor paper with a black waterproof ink, colored with regular watercolors and finally fussy cut right against the stamp lines. Then I built a shaker element reusing a Snow Globe Shaker Die Set and filling it with a tiny die-cut hearts from Darling Hearts Die Set, sparkling sequins and beads because I loved the idea of falling hearts on the love card. And since I already had Darling Hearts Die Set on my desk, I die-cut the work “love” from a bright pink cardstock and used it as the sentiment.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day! And, please, let me know if you’re interested to see more posts from my Stamp Focus Card Series!!!
