Happily Ever After #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Wedding Frills stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The cards I’m sharing today turned out very elegant and classy and were inspired by beautiful new Wedding Frills Stamp Set (that comes with the coordinating dies) and Floral Lace Stencil. Both products have gorgeous, intricate design and will bring your projects to a whole new level!!!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Wedding Frills 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!

My first card is a very classic wedding one. In fact, a tone on tone embossing is paired with a metallic gold shine that is so typical on wedding cards and invitations.

I started with a white A2 size card base and Floral Lace Stencil. Once transferred the beautiful lace design with a plain white embossing paste, I left everything air dry and started working on Wedding Frills Stamp Set. I put a generous coat of an antistatic powder before doing heat embossing to keep all the embossed lines clear. I stamped and heat embossed twice using a fine gold embossing powder the biggest stamp from Wedding Frills Stamp Set and the sentiment on the additional white panel cut at an angle. The coordinating dies helped me to die-cut quickly the elements. Assembling the card, I popped the heat embossed elements on a foam tape for a bit of dimension and skipped any other embellishments.

My second card is made on kraft card base because I just looooove the look of white against kraft color.

I used the same plain white embossing paste and transferred the pattern from Floral Lace Stencil, let it air dry and then die-cut with Frames & Flags die set. I also die-cut a stitched scalloped edge on a vellum strip using NND Sky Borders die set and wrapped it around the lace pattern with a matching kraft twine.

I customize my own sentiment die-cutting letters with Essential Alphabet Die sets on a gold metallic paper and finally arrange and adhered the letters. I think it would be awesome recreate this card with names of bride and groom! What do you think?

Crafting Desert Divas – March Release Replay – Hitched



Hello and welcome!

Sharing today another look on sooooooo adorable Hitched stamp set from the Craftin Desert Divas March Release!

Now & Forever #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hitched Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I just loooooove these cute images: elegant, romantic and cute at the same time. Really perfect for wedding and anniversary projects. And so I grabbed another just married couple from Hitched stamp set and as always stamped with a copic friendly black ink on Neenah Solar White paper, colored with copic markers and then fussy cut leaving a little white border around.

Now & Forever #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hitched Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Next I started working on the background and built a sunset scene on a stitched rectangle from Fancy Frame Dies set. I masked the sun rays with two pieces of a sticky tape and added color with Distress Oxide inks and an ink blending tool. Where available I provide direct links to all the products I used on the project along with a complete list of colors at the bottom of every post. Once added the sentiment from Simply Said set, I was ready to assemble everything. I “grounded” the couple in the car on a matching stitched border die from Fall Border Dies set and added some dimension adhering the elements on a foam tape. The last finish touches were shimmer pen and a few clear sparkling sequins.

Crafting Desert Divas – March Release Sneak Peek – Hitched



Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be on the Craftin Desert Divas blog today with a daily post featuring brand new and sooooooo adorable Hitched stamp set from the Craftin Desert Divas March Release.

All the products from the CDD March release will be available for purchase on Friday March, 9 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop.

Always & Forever #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hitched Stamping Set Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I’m sure you will fall in love with the new romantic stamp set that I’m sneak peeking today! All the images from Hitched stamp set are so fabulous, elegant and dreamy! And so I went with a clean and simple design, making a focus on the stamps and coloring.

Always & Forever #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hitched Stamping Set Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Want to recreate this cute card? Nothing more easy! Just follow the step by step tutorial I’m leaving you with.

  • Take a piece of a masking paper, trace a heart shape with a pencil and cut the heat window with scissors or an exacto knife.

  • Trim a rectangle from a white cardstock slightly smaller than A2 size card base (5″ x 3¾”) and place the negative part of the mask with a heart window on top.
  • Add Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry color with an ink blending tool.

  • Then add and fix on top Hearts Galore stencil without lifting up the mask and add more color through the stencil.

  • At this point remove both the stencil and the mask and set everything aside.
  • Stamp the image of your choice from Hitched stamp set with a copic friendly black ink on a copic friendly paper, proceed with coloring and fussy cut it leaving a little white edge around. I’m leaving all the exact copic markers I used here at the bottom of this post.
  • Start assembling the card by preparing an A2 size card base from a light gray cardstock, stamping the sentiment from Simply Said set with the same black ink you used before for a perfect match and popping up some elements on a foam tape for a bit of dimension.

Happy Anniversary Card

NND Happy Anniversary 2016 (1)

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while I haven’t used kraft cardstock on my cards and totally forgot how gorgeous it looks with white embossing.

So today I’m sharing a very simple and elegant Happy Anniversary card that was inspired by the Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #35 – Burlap and Lace.

IPC_35_BurlapLaceHere’re the main steps of the creative process. I partially die-cut a faux stitched panel using the largest frame from Simon Says Stamp’s Stitched Rectangles set and heat embossed on it with white embossing powder the champagne flutes and the sentiment from Years of Cheers stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs. Then I created a faux lace heat embossing on vellum with the same white embossing powder a gorgeous pattern piece from Chantilly Trim stamp set by WPlus9 (sorry… can’t find the valid link for this set. I guess it was discontinued  😦 ). It’s a little bit challenging embossing such a large and intricate piece on vellum, but tons of antistatic powder did the trick. A foam tape brought some dimension and interest on the card and a little tiny pearl on the twine knot was added as a finish touch.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me kind comments, I really appreciate it a lot!

Have a great week! Bye!
