It's Beginning To Look A SLOTH Like Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Slothy Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m starting with a super adorable Slothy Christmas stamp set and a round base card! The cute sleepy guy and some presents were die cut with the coordinating dies, stamped with Memento black ink and colored with copic markers.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors: W00-W1-W3-W5; E50-E51-E53; GOO-G02-G09; RV13-RV14-RV17.

For the background I used Land Borders Die Set to cut a snow slope and Petite Snow stencil with a white embossing paste. Finally the matching fun sentiment from the same Slothy Christmas stamp set was heat embossed on a night sky portion of the circle inked with Distress inks.

Happy Howl-idays #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Howl-idays stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The card featuring Happy Howl-idays stamp set turned out clean and simple. The cute puppies were die cut with the coordinating dies on a Bristol paper and stamped with VersaFine black ink. I colored them using the following water based markers:

ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH n.29 Geranium Red, n.51 Lemon Yellow, n.60 Brown, n.61 Light Brown, n.63 Ochre, n.67 Mustard, n.96 Mid Gray; TOMBOW n.885, n.977.

I masked a rectangle directly on the card base and inked it with a very light shade of blue. Next before lifting the masking paper, I added a falling snow through Petite Snow stencil and finally heat embossed the sentiment from Happy Howl-idays stamp set on a piece of a red cardstock.

The cutest sheep from Fleece Navidad stamp set has immediately stolen my heart.

Next I built a cute scene on my background using Frames & Flags Die Set for the window, new Forest Scene Builder Die Set for the trees, leaves and a little bird. The matching funny sentiment was simply stamped on the inked background and finally a few heat embossed snowflakes from the same Fleece Navidad stamp set added a finish touch.

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

Before proceeding to the coloring I die cut a scalloped rectangle from Framework Die Set and stamped the fireplace from Fireside Friends stamp set masking some parts before inking the stamp. And finally I proceeded with coloring using water based markers:

NND comes with the most adorable designs every time and it’s soooooo hard to pick favorites, but this fabulous trio of kitties from Caroling Newton stamp set has immediately stolen my heart!!! And so I decided to color them as my sweet girl Lilly (on the left), the cutest red Newton – the inspiration for the NND name and logo (in the center) and my eldest boy Tommy (on the right). I can’t stop laughing every time I look at this card!!!

Fa-la-la-la Meow #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Caroling Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Creating this card, I really invested my time on coloring the cats from Caroling Newton that were die cut from Neenah Solar White paper with the coordinating die and stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink.

This is the complete list of all copic markers I used here: cat on the left W00-W1-W2-W3; cat in the center Y32-YR21-YR24-YR27; cat on the right E40-E41-E42-E43-E44; YG03-YG25-YG67; B91-B93-B97-B99; R35-RV29-R39; R11-R12; T0-T1-T3; BG10-BG13.

The scalloped frame on the background were die cut with Frames & Flags Die set, slightly inked with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and an ink blending tool. Next new amazing Music stencil was placed on top and inked with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink. I lifted up and cleaned the stencil and then applied it once more on the background slightly shifted right up. Finally the music pattern was reapplied once again with a white embossing paste. Assembling the card, I simply stamped the matching sentiment from Caroling Newton stamp set and finally popped the background and kitties on a foam tape.

The Music background was chosen again for my second card and paired with the super cute mice from The Nutcracker Squeak. I started this project with a watercolor cardstock from Tim Holtz, inked the whole panel with Shaded Lilac Distress ink and applied the music pattern using Wilted Violet Distress ink. Next I added some water droplet and color splashes across for more fun and playful look.

The cute ballerinas were die cut with the coordinating dies, stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on Strathmore Bristol paper and colored with water markers. I used the matching sentiment from The Nutcracker Squeak stamp set and simply stamped it on the music panel before popping the critters on a foam tape.

Believe In The Magic Of The Season #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winter Memories stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on this project, I prepared a long card base, hand cut a curvy line from a masking paper emulating snow banks and placed it on the bottom part of the card base. Next I inked Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Black Soot Distress inks stating from the top part of the card and fading the colors towards the bottom. I lifted up the masking paper and let the inked background dry before stamping the scene with Winter Memories set and VersaFine black ink. Finally I added a few snowflakes with a white pigment ink for a soft and dreamy look.

You are not a stamper?! In this case, hope my second card will inspire you!!! LOL!!!

Happy Holidays #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Greetings die set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This card was made with no stamps at all! I mixed and matched a few new goodies and added a bit of sparkle on top! To start, I prepared a watercolored background using blue tones. Next I set towards the bottom left part of my panel new Evergreens stencil and inked Moved Lawn plus a bit of Faded Jeans Distress inks on top. I lifted up the stencil and let everything dry well before adding fun Petite Snow through the second new stencil with a plain white embossing paste. To add more shine I dropped a crystal sparkle embossing powder while the white embossing paste was still wet and let everything air dry once again.

Meanwhile I die cut several times and stacked a few layers of wonderful die cut sentiment from new Holiday Greetings Die Set finishing on top with a silver glitter paper. I’m always so excited about the new word dies as they give that extra special finishing touch to every project!!! Finally I shook off and heat set the sparkling embossing paste on the background, added the shiny sentiment and popped my background on a regular A2 size card base.

Here is what I created:

Feeling Slothy Need Coffee #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Slothy Coffee stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

New just released Slothy Coffee stamp set was so perfect to play with. I die cut using the coordinating Slothy Coffee Die Set the cute sloth in the coffee cup from Strathmore Bristol paper, aligned the negative part of the die cut into a stamping positioning tool and stamped the image with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. The fall twist to the card gave some pumpkins from Harvest Tails and a few falling leaves from Newton’s Cornucopia stamp and die sets. All the stamped elements were colored with Tombow and Zig markers which exact list I’m leaving here:

TOMBOW MARKERS: n.090, n.126, n.885, n.912, n.946, n.990, n.991, n.992.
ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.41 Light Green, n.50 Yellow, n.52 Bright Yellow, n.70 Orange, n.71 Flesh Colour.

Feeling Slothy Need Coffee #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Slothy Coffee stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The background was made from a watercolor paper trimmed slightly smaller than an A2 size card base. I added some water washes with regular watercolors using the same color range and I used previously on the stamps. Finally the sentiment from the same Slothy Coffee set was simply stamped on the watercolor panel and all the elements were assembled with a bit of dimension.

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up September Challenge #47

Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Party Balloon stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
Today I’ve popped in with an inspiration project made for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up challenge. You have all month to play along and make a project using just the inspiration, just the sketch or Mix it Up and use both! It is totally up to you! You can find all the rules at SugarPea blog right here!!!

Creating this card, I played with a fun Party Balloon die. Actually this little die was meant to be used with the coordinating stamp set, but it’s so perfect as a stand alone element. Love such versatile products plus it has a great price point. I used an inexpensive watercolor paper and die cut the balloon several times. Next I used Tombow markers and the color palette from the inspiration photo and made a super easy watercoloring.

Here’re all the exact markers used here: n.090, n.243, n.425, n.493, n.673, n.723, n.725, n.873, n.912.

Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Party Balloon stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Working on the layout, I made more die cutting using Card Front Element Builder set, SugarCut You and Sugar & Spice pattern paper. I stacked together a few layers of the word “you” for an extra finish touch before adhering it to the card front and finally heat embossed the sentiment from Sweet Sentiments – You stamp set. Assembling everything together, I added a bit of dimension using a foam tape.
