Craftin Desert Divas – April Release Sneak Peek – Floral Wreaths

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!

I’m so excited to be on Craftin Desert Divas blog today bringing you my daily post! Today is day 3 of the sneak peak week and I’m very happy to introduce you a brand new FLORAL WREATHS stamp set available on purchase on April, 20!

Hello Friend #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Wreaths stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

This stamp set is so adorable and will allow you to create beautiful, elegant cards that can cover all the occasions! Plus it’s so easy and fun to use because you have the flowers already arranged in wreaths or clusters and that means no masking and spending time trying to figure out how to put the flowers on your card are needed! Just grab the image you like, stamp it and you are ready to color! I always LOVE such versatile and clever products!

Since the flower stamps from FLORAL WREATHS stamp set are so amazing, I decided to keep my card very clean and simple and watercolor the awesome heart shape wreath! My choice were Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers because these flowers look so springy and so I wished to make something cheerful and bright. My winning combo to use with Zig markers are Bristol paper (I especially love Strathmore brand) and a water brush. They allow to spread colors very easily and don’t leave hash marks.

I like to work in layers on my watercolor projects: first I usually put a light initial one and then start adding more colorful spots, shadows and highlights! I play with the image unless I’m satisfied with the result and often come back working on some ares a few times! Of course, couldn’t skip some little extra finish touches such as tiny black and white splotches and a few matching sequins!

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!

Craftin Desert Divas – March Release Sneak Peek – Magical Unicorns

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!

I’ve just popped in to share this cute card featuring a SUPER ADORABLE Magical Unicorns stamp set! This set is just fantastic! Love funny little unicorn’s faces and fabulous sentiments! I’m sure you’re going to love it too!

Be Fabulous Be A Unicorn #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Somebunny stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

My today’s card is super clean and simple! I created a peachy (why not since we are in the Magic Land! LOL!) gradient sky using ink blending technique and then framed my card front with a scalloped die from Fancy Frame Dies. I stacked and glued together a few layers since I wanted it to pop up against the soft background.

Be Fabulous Be A Unicorn #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Somebunny stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The unicorns were stamped on a copic friendly paper and colored as you can guess with copic markers. And the sentiment from the same stamp set was added right to the card base.

Of course, to bright a little bit of magic I added a generous coat of a glitter shimmer pen to the unicorns and some sparkling sequins.

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

So happy you joined me again today! What a great start of the week! So this is my post for the Newton’s Nook Designs March Release. And I have a few projects to share with you today!

Flying By #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston Takes Flight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today NND Design Team is showcasing a brand new stamp set with ADORABLE bear Winston called Winston Takes Flight along with the coordinating die set and fantastic stitched Sky Borders die.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Winston Takes Flight 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!

Love this fantastic stamp set for it’s versatility! You can really cover any occasion by simply adding the right sentiment! And let me tell you that Sky Borders dies work so well with this this stamp set that I just couldn’t resist to put them in practice right away. And here’s my first card!

Flying By #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston Takes Flight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started die-cutting a stitched frame out of a white cardstock. Then I repeatedly die-cut a cloud shape on the inner panel and did a light ink blending from the bottom of every die-cut cloud. Finally I simply put back all the pieces in place like a puzzle.

Flying By #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston Takes Flight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stamped the sentiment, the banner and the cute bear all from the same stamp set onto a copic friendly cardstock and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. I colored the images with copic markers and popped them on a foam tape. I finished to put my empty banner inside the card so that I can add later any sentiment I need.

Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston Takes Flight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

And here is my second card. I decided to stretch my pattern paper and the coordinating dies that come with Winston Takes Flight stamp set on it and chose a matching sky chevron pattern paper.

Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston Takes Flight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I applied the pattern paper all over the front of my card base and popped on top a more narrow piece of a white cardstock where I previously die-cut pretty clouds that come with the coordinating die set. I stamped a few times the fun Winston on a copic friendly paper and on the pattern paper as well so that I could add to the stamp some cut out patterned color pieces.

Of course, I couldn’t not to use more foam tape and some matching sentiments on both cards along with a shimmer pen and a tiny touches of Glossy Accents.

Craftin Desert Divas – March Release Sneak Peek – Somebunny

Hello everyone!

So excited to share finally my sneak peek project for the Craftin Desert Divas March Release featuring their brand new Somebunny stamp set.

I Carrot Belive #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Somebunny stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Look at this cuteness! Awww! That bunny with glasses is just killing me! He is so so so adorable that you really don’t need to put much thought on the card. Just grab and stamp a few images from the set, color them with any media you like and your project is done!

I Carrot Belive #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Somebunny stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I thought it would be nice to put in practice my color pencils this time. So I started die-cutting a panel with CDD Fancy Frame Dies out of a kraft cardstock. Then I stamped a few images from Somebunny stamp set, making some very simple masking and built my cute scene.

I Carrot Belive #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Somebunny stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Once finished coloring I stamped the matching sentiment from the same stamp set and adhered a bright green piece of pattern paper from Doodlebug’s Easter Express Paper Pad under my colored panel. I skipped any other embellishment and leave the card as it is.

That all for today! Hope you like this cute bunny and my card! As always thanks so much for stopping by!

And if you like this set and want to see more relative projects, stay tuned for my release day post going life in a few days!
