Craftin Desert Divas – October Release Sneak Peek – Arctic Pals


Happy Friday!

I’m up on Crafting Desert Divas blog today brining you my daily post and a peek on the new super adorable ARCTIC PALS stamp set!

I mixed and matched a few CDD products creating the layout with a circle focal point on this card to get more use of the dies and the stencil I already have in my stash. But if you’re new to the cardmaking and don’t have all those fancy products yet, please, read this post because I’ll be giving the alternative ideas on how to create the same layout.

Here’re the steps to follow:

  • Cut and score an extended A2 size card base (5½” x 4¼”)
  • Die-cut a scalloped rectangle using Fancy Frame Dies or simply cut it out with your trimmer or scissors. The rectangle should be slightly smaller then your card base.
  • Die-cut a scalloped circle from Stitched In Circle Dies inside the rectangle or simply fussy cut it apart with you scissors. Use anything that have a round shape to achieve a perfect circle like a glass, for example, and trace around it a pencil line to help you at this step. Use a decorative scissors to achieve a fancy border on the rectangle and the circle.
  • Put the die-cut circle back in the negative place and secure it with a non permanent tape to keep it in place while you die-cutting the stitched border from Fall Border Dies or adhere the hand cut circle into the desirable position with a non permanent glue and use a cutter knife for a wavy line.
  • Add color to the die-cut parts above the wavy lines transforming them into the sky portion. I used a light blue ink and an ink blending tool for that, but you can use any color media you have on hand and let everything dry.

  • Keep the bottom part simply white and stamp the sentiment in the bottom left corner.
  • Stamp, color with any media of your choice and fussy cut the cute critters from Arctic Pals stamp set. I used here copic marker. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see all the exact colors I used.
  • Once dried, apply the snowflakes to the sky portion through the Snowflake Flurries Stencil or simply draw you own with a white gel pen.
  • Start assembling the card. Adhere the rectangle piece straight to the card base. Pop up the top part of your circle on a foam tape. Then double the foam tape for the bottom part of the circle and finally pop up the colored stamps on top.

Crafting Desert Divas – November Sneak Peek – Skating By and Snow Happy


Hello and welcome!

Thanks so much for joining me today for another peek on two super adorable stamp sets from the Craftin Desert Divas November Release!

All the products from the CDD November release will be available for purchase on Friday November, 17 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop!

Christmas Wishes #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Skating By stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

My first fun interactive card showcases new Skating By stamp set filled with lots of cute critters that completely melted my heart! LOL!!!

Christmas Wishes #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Skating By stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Creating this interactive card, I mixed and matched a few old and new CDD products: used Fancy Frame Dies and Fall Border Dies for the layout, Ocean Border Dies for the interactive element and picked the sentiment from Christmas Wishes stamp set! On the fancy background I made an ink blending with Distress Oxide – Spiced Marmalade and Distress Oxide – Wilted Violet inks. The cute walrus and fox were stamped with a copic friendly ink, colored with copic markers, of course, and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around!

And here’s my second card with the adorable trolls in the winter scene from new Snow Happy stamp set!

Troll Make Christmas Happen #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Happy stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I keep the layout super simple this time and went for almost one layer card, making a little bit of masking with Fall Border Dies. Then I added a fun texture using a white embossing paste and Snowflake Flurries Stencil and finally popped on top the little trolls that were watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush and Tombow markers.

Of course, finishing this card I couldn’t escape a few extra little details added with a white gel pen! And as always, I’m leaving the complete list of the colors I used at the bottom of this post in case you like any color!

Wishing You The Merriest Holiday Season #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Sweaters stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas


And so I grabbled a few, stamped them with a waterproof black ink, colored with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around. Then I prepare the ink blended background with Distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Tattered Rose and Wild Honey colors. I spritzed a few water droplets on top and dabbed the excess of water with a paper towel, lifting some color in this way. Once dried, I added some snowflakes on top using Snowflake Flurries Stencil and a white embossing paste.

Wishing You The Merriest Holiday Season #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Sweaters stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The sentiment was simply stamped with the same black ink and finally the critters were popped up on a foam tape.

Craftin Desert Divas – Monthly Social Media Challenge November 2017

Christmas Foiled #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowflakes digital stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas


Happy Friday!

It’s time to play with the November Monthly Social Media Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! Here’s the beautiful Mood Board created for this month!

Today I have something different to share with you. I made a set of Christmas foiled cards using digital stamps. This is a really fun and easy method for mass producing handmade cards and a beautiful metallic shine looks so gorgeous and elegant!

Christmas Foiled #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowflakes digital stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I had this idea in my mind for a long time and asked CDD if they could add digital snowflakes and some bold handwritten sentiments to their online shop! And here they are in use! You can find these images in Snowflakes and Best Wishes Sentiment digital stamp sets. I spent a little bit of time making a digital layout and arranging the snowflakes on the background while the sentiment was popped up in the rectangle box placed the center. This layout was sized to an extended A2 size card and so I had only to print a bunch already ready for foiling.

Christmas Foiled #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowflakes digital stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

If you are unfamiliar with the foiling technique, here is how it works. When you’re working with digital images, you must print them on a laser printer because a toner is what will make stick the foil transfer sheets to you project. Once you have your layout printed, place the foil sheet on top facing up the shiny surface and sandwich everything between two pieces of a regular printer paper creating a sort of a folder. Then you need to make very hot a laminator (Laminators are really inexpensive and can be used in so many ways. I purposely got my one from this technique from Amazon.) and send your sandwich through. Let the paper cool for a second before removing the foil sheet and your plain black images will be magically transformed into beautiful metallic ones!  It’s hard to kept in picture all that shine, but in real life these cards looks really fabulous!

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you’ll join Craftin Desert divas October Monthly Social Media Challenge for a chance to win some amazing prizes!
