Celebrate Card For SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #65

Celebrate #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Birthday Balloons stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

Today is my turn to get you inspired for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up Challenge! I came up with almost one layer all occasion card featuring a basic copic coloring and a great way to get more from the coordinating dies.

In case you want to play along, as well, here’s how you can do that: 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!!!

I love one layer cards and masking techniques that are used for creating one layer scenes though, honestly, I’m a bit lazy sometimes to fussy cut the masking paper. I often prefer to die cut every single stamp, make coloring and then assemble all the elements together on the background. But fantastic Party Balloon SugarCut from SugarPea Designs makes your and my lives much easier because it matches perfectly the outlines of Birthday Balloons stamp set. So no fussy cutting was needed this time! I managed to die cut quickly all the masks from a masking paper with the coordinating SugarCut and used them to stamp the balloons one on top of the other with copic friendly Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Actually this project is made with two masking techniques and both are super quick and easy because of the dies. As I mentioned before, first I masked and stamped all the balloons. Then I prepared the second mask die cutting a circle from Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCut inside a rectangle trimmed to an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″). I positioned the negative part of the die in the center of the background keeping the balloon masks in place. I inked the circle window with Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink and a blending brushe and finally was able to lift all the masks and proceed with copic coloring.

As always, these are all the colors combos of copic markers used on this project: RV0000-RV00-RV10-RV02; YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG05; Y0000-Y00-Y11-Y15; Y00-Y11-Y15-Y17-YR14; YR000-YR00-YR02.

Once finished with coloring, I slightly trimmed the colored piece and popped it on an A2 size white card base along with a heat embossed sentiment from the same Birthday Balloons set and a few clear sparkling sequins.

Hope you like this clean and simple card! Now it’s your turn to link up your creations for a chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate from SugarPea Designs! Can’t wait to see what you create!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!

Hugs,

You Deserve A Whole Latte Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Later Gator stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

On my stop for this hop I’m sharing a cutie from Later Gator stamp set. I kept everything very simple today and used only one stamp set plus the coordinating dies. To start, I die cut the gator and a few accessories using Later Gator SugarCut on Neenah Solar White paper, stamped the coordinating open images from Later Gator stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with copic markers.

As always here’s the complete list of all the colors used here: COPIC YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG23-YG25-G07; V01-V04-V06; BG10-BG15-BG23; C1-C3.

You Deserve A Whole Latte Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Later Gator stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Then I inked a matching background for my gator with Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet Distress inks and added a few tiny shimmer droplets and some colorful splashes for more interest. I split the sentiment from the same Later Gator stamp set into two parts: heat embossing the first one and simply stamping the second one. Finally I assemble everything on a regular A2 size white card base with a bit of dimension.

Cheers Card For SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #63

Cheers #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cheers To You stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

Today is my turn to get you inspired for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up Challenge! I came up with quite simple all occasions card, making a bit of die cutting and heat embossing!

In case you want to play along, as well, here’s how you can do that: 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!!!

To start, I heat embossed two champagne glasses on vellum from Cheers To You stamp set with a Fine Gold Embossing Powder. I used the same embossing powder on a piece of a white cardstock to create my own metallic gold paper for the champagne bottle details and then die cut all the elements with Cheers To You SugarCut.

Cheers #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cheers To You stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

The background was inked with Simon Hurley Overzealous, Simon Says Stamp Fern and Vintage Photos Distress inks. I heat set the background and then die cut a scalloped frame from Card Front Element Builder to match the sketch. I also added some white and dark green splatters and heat embossed elements from Cheers To You stamp set. The die cut sentiment comes from Cheers SugarCut. I prepared the word part from a plain white cardstock and the shadow element from vellum. Finally I assembles everything together skipping any other embellishment.

SugarPea Designs January 2020 Release: Day 5

The World Needs More You FRIEND #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Friendship Sentiments stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome to the final day of the SugarPea January Product Release!

I hope you joined SPD Design Team this week and hopped along each day for a chance at winning GIVEAWAYS!

**Please note that links to SPD store for the new products will not go LIVE until 6PM EST on January 24th.**

Today’s introductions include… an amazing and versatile Friendship Sentiments stamp set and Friends Words With Shadows SugarCut set. Plus there’s a wonderful and intricate Interlocking Circles SugarCut.

Friendship Sentiments

Friends Words With Shadows SugarCut

Interlocking Circles SugarCut

And here’s what I came up with for you today! A sweet friend card with a bit of inking and die cutting! To start, I heat embossed one part of the sentiment from Friendship Sentiments set on a narrow strip of a black cardstock. Then I die cut the word “friend” using Friends Words With Shadows SugarCut set and glued two pieces together to form the white word with the black shadow part. At this point, I also die cut tree times Interlocking Circles and stacked all the layers together.

The World Needs More You FRIEND #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Friendship Sentiments stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Since my intention was to make an inked background, I started with a piece of Watercolor Cardstock from Tim Holtz because this paper was meant to work with Distress inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seeds, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress inks for my blending. I moved back and force with a blending tool a few times layering the colors and overlapping them a bit to achieve a smooth look. Then I added a few tiny water droplets and some colorful splashes on top for more interest. Finally assembled all the elements together by gluing the Interlocking Circles directly to the background and the die cut work “friend” on top of the circles with Multi Medium Matte liquid adhesive.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ January Reveal and Giveaway – Day 4 – Newton’s Valentine and Newton’s Crafty Cardio

Hello and welcome to the final day of the Newton’s Nook January release!

All the new January products will be available for purchase tomorrow on Friday, January 24th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Will You Be MEOW-entine #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Valentine stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

 

Crafting Is My Cardio #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Crafty Cardio stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The last day of the release is full of the super adorable kitties in two new small stamp sets: Newton’s Valentine and Newton’s Crafty Cardio. Both of them come with the coordinating dies.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both Newton’s Valentine and Newton’s Crafty Cardio stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!


My first card features such adorable Newton’s Valentine stamp and die sets. To start, I die cut a big image along with a few small hearts using the coordinating Newton’s Valentine Die Set. I worked on Strathmore Bristol paper and used waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink for stamping the open stamps from Newton’s Valentine stamp set. Next I made my coloring with water based markers.

As always, I’m leaving here all the exact colors used on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N79; 055, 515, 565, 703, 743, 755, 969; 977; 992.

Creating the background, I reached once again to Bokeh Hearts Stencil set. I loooove the bokeh effect it gives and the heart pattern makes it perfect for love cards. I masked a square on an A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) white card base  and applied the hearts from the layer #1 from Bokeh Hearts Stencil set. Next I switched to the layer #2 and finished by adding more ink all across the square window. I used Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar Distress inks toward the bottom part of the inked area and Mermaid Lagoon plus Blueprint Sketch towards the top overlapping them a little bit for a smooth look. The sentiment from the same Newton’s Valentine set was simply stamped underneath the inked square. Finally the kitty and the hearts were positioned with a bit of dimension.

Next comes Newton’s Crafty Cardio stamp and die sets. I started again with the coordinating dies to prepare all the die cut shapes. This time I switched to Neenah Solar White paper and Black Hybrid ink from MFT for stamping the open images from Newton’s Crafty Cardio stamp set. I colored all the elements with copic markers.

And this is the complete list of all the makers used on this card: COPIC cat E40-E41-E42-E44-E49 plus R000-R12; Y0000-Y13-Y18; R20-R22-R24-R27-R29-R39; BG10-BG11-BG23; YG01-YG23-YG17; T1-T3; E30-E31-E33; YR02-YR04; B21-B24; RV02; V04.

Working on the background, I created my own patterned paper repeatedly stamping small images from Newton’s Crafty Cardio set. Next I die cut a circle window and split in two parts the sentiment by cutting the word “CRAFTING” apart. This word, designed by NND slightly curved, embraced perfectly the circle shape. The second part of the sentiment was heat embossed on a piece of a red cardstock. I colored it with red copic markers that I used on the kitty before for a perfect match and shaped it into a fish-tale banner with my scissors. Finally I could assemble all the elements together with a bit of dimension.
