Make A Wish #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sweetest Birthday Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

I used the cutest mouse stamp today and started with a copic friendly black ink for stamping, Neehah Solar White paper both for coloring and card front and my favorite Cutter Bee Scissors for fussy cutting. Then I prepared a few elements for the layout die-cutting a rectangle frame from Fancy Frame Dies, a scalloped circle from Stitched In Circle Dies and a few small banners using Mini Banner Die.

After adding the simple dotted pattern through Sorted Shapes Stencil with a light grey ink for a non distractive background, I assembled all the element on the A2 size card base adding some dimension with a foam tape and finishing with a white heat embossed sentiment on a black cardstock and a few matching extra details added with a White Gelly Pen.

Crafting Desert Divas – January Release Sneak Peek – Up, Up & Away


Happy Wednesday!

I’ve popped in today to share a clean and simple card with a rainbow twist featuring new and absolutely adorable Up, Up & Away stamp set from the Craftin Desert Divas January release!

All the products from the CDD January release will be available for purchase on Friday January, 12 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop.

Miss You #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Up, Up & Away Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

I guess Up, Up & Away stamp set happens to be my favorite from the January release because there’s something special about hot air balloons!!! They always inspire me so much and I just adore them! And so here’s my first project!

Miss You #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Up, Up & Away Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

I started, of course, with stamping using a copic friendly black ink on Neenah Solar White paper and coloring the hor air balloon and adorable critters with copic markers. Then I fussy cut the stamp around, leaving a little white edge, and proceeded working on the layout. I die-cut a stitched frame using Fancy Frame Die set from a pattern paper I had in my stash and a scalloped circle using Stitched In Circle Die set from the same Neenah Solar White cardstock I used before. Added a bit of color to the center of the die-cut circle with an ink blending tool and Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers color. Then I prepared a fish-tale banner with a heat embossed “Miss You” sentiment from Simply Said set and a few aditional clouds from Magical Unicorns stamp set. Finishing the card I just couldn’t escape to add some dimension, popping the elements on a foam tape, and a few little extra touches with a shimmer pen and Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Crafting Desert Divas – January Release Sneak Peek – Sweetest Birthday


Hello and happy New Year!

Hope you had a fabulous holiday season?! This 2018 year starts with new release from Craftin Desert Divas on my blog! Ready for tons of cuteness and bright cheerful colors?

All the products from the CDD January release will be available for purchase on Friday January, 12 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop.

Happy B-Day #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sweetest Birthday Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

After all the holiday craziness it was so fun to come back to my crafty desk and made a few birthday cards because birthday cards can’t be too many! Right?! LOL!!! And what makes even more cute and sweet handmade cards if not adorable critters and cakes?! So I grabbed a few cute little characters from new Sweetest Birthday stamp set and just enjoyed making a simple copic coloring.

Happy B-Day #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sweetest Birthday Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

Of course, I used my best old friends creating this simple card: a copic friendly black ink for stamping, Neehah Solar White paper both for coloring and card front, my ever favorite Cutter Bee Scissors for fussy cutting and the largest stitched frame from Crazy Stitched Frame Dies set. I kept everything very clean and simple and only added a bit of color on the background using Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers color. Adding extra finish touches, I flicked a few water droplets on top of Distress ink creating a little bit splotchy look, applied a generous coat of a shimmer pen and inevitable matching sequins and finally popped up the cute critters on a foam tape for extra dimension.

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge December 2017

'Tis The Season #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winter Village Digital Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Friday!

It’s time to play again with the Monthly Social Media Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! And here’s another inspirational project based on the beautiful December mood board!

Today’s card turned out almost one layer. I played with the gorgeous Winter Village Digital Stamp Set, printed a simple frosty scene on a laser printer and just enjoyed coloring it with copic markers. In case you’re interested, please, check all the exact copic numbers I used here at the bottom of this post.

'Tis The Season #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winter Village Digital Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

Once finished with coloring, I added a sentiment from Holiday Sweaters stamp set stamping it directly on my panel with a black ink. And finally added a frosty feeling applying first Multi Medium Matte adhesive and then sprinkled on top a clear glitter. I set everything aside and let air dry before shaking off the excess and gluing the colored scene to the regular A2 size card base.

Stretch Your Supplies Card Series (ft. Craftin Desert Divas)

'Tis The Season #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sorted Shapes stencil by Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Saturday!

I’m so excited to guest on Crafting Desert Divas blog today with Stretch Your Supplies Card Series! This super simple modern Christmas card was made with a very limited craft supplies so you don’t have an excuse not to get your hands inky and try to make handmade cards for your friends and family if you haven’t tried yet!

All you need for this project is Sorted Shapes Stencil, a few colors of Distress Oxide inks (in case you don’t have them, you can definitively use regular Distress inks or any kind of dye or pigment inks you have on hand), a pencil, a pair of scissors, a ruler, a brush and a piece of watercolor paper.

So let’s see a step by step tutorial:

  • Cut and score an extended A2 size card base (5½” x 4¼”).

  • Use a ruler, a pencil and scissors, trace and cut two triangles one a little bit smaller than the other (see the picture above). Use them as a guide and cut out a few triangles from a watercolor paper for your project.

  • Take another rectangle piece of a watercolor paper (I used here Distress Cardstock from Tim Holtz since it ment to work with Distress inks) and use your Distress Oxide inks as a watercolor media, smooshing them against a sleek surface and creating a messy spots with a regular brush (see the picture above). This technique will work both with regular Distress inks or any sort of dye inks. You can use regular watercolors at this point too.

  • Smoosh once more on a sleek surface a few shades of inks, mix them with a translucent or white embossing paste and apply on top of the watercolor spot using the circle part of Sorted Shapes Stencil and creating a sort of snowy background. In case you don’t have an embossing paste, apply the inks directly to the watercolor base through the stencil with a foam tool or directly from an ink pad (see the picture above).

  • Use a chevron part of Sorted Shapes Stencil to decorate the triangles by applying the ink with a foam or directly from the ink pad. If you work with Distress or dye inks, spritz a few water droplets on top to bring some interest (see the picture above).

  • Add color to a narrow strip of paper, let it dry and heat emboss the sentiment from Holiday Sweaters stamp set. Of course, you can simply stamp the sentiment on top or hand draw one of your choice.

  • Finally assemble everything, giving a little bit of dimension with a foam tape and adhere a few matching sequins as a finish touch.
