You're Snow Much Fun #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mountain Moose stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today I’m playing with a few fun new goodies released by Newton’s Nook Designs during the Holiday period! So let’s take another look on the super adorable moose from Moose Mountain stamp set and amazing Petite Snow stencil!

You're Snow Much Fun #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mountain Moose stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on this project I started with a die cutting process and created a snow hill using Land Borders Die Set along with the coordinating cut from Moose Mountain Die Set. Next I aligned the negative part of the moose in my stamping positioning tool and added the coordinating image plus the sentiment both from the same Moose Mountain stamp set using a black copic friendly ink. Before proceeding with coloring, I prepared a regular A2 size card base, inked it with a light blue tones of Distress inks and then added a snow pattern through Petite Snow stencil using a white embossing paste. While the embossing paste was drying, I colored the moose with copic markers and finally popped everything together using a foam tape for a bit of dimension.
In case you’re interested, here’s the complete list of all the copic markers used here: B0000-B01-B02-B04-B05-B39; Y18-YR04-YR07-E09; E40-E42-E42-E43; T0-T1-T3; Y21-Y26.

Holiday Card Series 2018 – One Stamp Set Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Sending You Candy Cane Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Merry Makers stamp set by SugarPea Designs

 

Hello and welcome!
I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today and to share with you a clean and simple card made from one stamp set called Merry Makers.

Sending You Candy Cane Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Merry Makers stamp set by SugarPea Designs

Merry Makers set has a few super cute elves and so I decided to challenge myself and make a card using only one stamp set. To start I stamped all the characters on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof, colored with water based markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around.

Here’s the complete list of all the markers I used:
TOMBOW MARKERS: n.885, n.947.
ZIG CKLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.41 Light Green, n.50 Yellow, n.51 Lemon Yellow, n.61 Light Brown, n.64 Oatmeal, n.71 Flesh Colour, n.72 Beige, n.91 Light Gray, n.94 Gray Brown.

I was not satisfied how the elves were fitting on a regular A2 size card base and so I prepared a longer one measuring 7½” x 3½” from a plain white cardstock. I also trimmed an additional rectangle slightly smaller than the card base where I die cut 3 circles using Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts. Before starting assembling everything together, I stamped the sentiment using the same Merry Makers set and the same VersaFine black ink.

Finally I popped all the elements on a foam tape and added a fun dotted pattern to the card base using Spots & Stripes Brights paper pad.

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up October Challenge #48

Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Fox stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
Today I’ve popped in with an inspiration project made for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up challenge. 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 just cannot resist to the cuteness and so I got my hands on the super adorable Fall Fox stamp set. To start, I stamped the fox and a few small elements on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof as my intention was to use watercolor markers for coloring.

And here’s the complete list of all Tombow markers used here: n.090, n.126, n.493, n.873, n.885, n.912, n.946, n.990, n.991.

Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Fox stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

For the layout I prepared a scalloped rectangle die cutting Countryside Charm Patterned Paper Collection pad with Card Front Element Builder and two circles using different sizes from Zig Zag Stitched Circles set. At this point, I also heat embossed the sentiment from the same Fall Fox stamp set with a white embossing paste on a piece of black cardstock and shaped it as a fish-tailed banner with the scissors. I don’t have the coordinating dies for Fall Fox stamp set and so I used again the small sharp scissors and fussy cut all the colored images leaving a little white edge around. Finally I started assembling everything with a bit of dimension popping some elements a foam adhesive and wrapped around some red and white twine to tie all pieces together.

Hello and welcome!

This week is the 2018 Cat Lovers Hop! This hop is so fun and since the theme is CATS and you know that I’m a crazy cat lady and so I just cannot not play along! To participate in this blog hop, you just have to create a project that features a cat and upload it to the post on Her Peaceful Garden! You totally should play along if you can since there are some really awesome sponsors and prizes, including one from Newton’s Nook Designs!

Merry & Bright #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This time I decided to challenge myself and create a CAS style card. I die cut using the coordinating Santa Paws Newton Die Set and then stamped with copic friendly black ink some adorable cute images from Santa Paws Newton set. Next I colored everything as you can guess with copic markers. And the adorable kitty is obviously colored as my sweet furry boy Thomas. He is Sacred Birman cat.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors used here: RV23-RV25-RV29-RV69; BG10-BG11-BG23-BG49; YG0000-YG01-YG13; E40-E41-E42-E43-E44-E47; T0-T1-T3.

Merry & Bright #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Arranging all the elements on the card base, I stacked a few layers of “Merry” die from Holiday Greetings Die Set and paired it with a heat embossed “Bright” from Sentiments Of The Season stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

See Through Window Card With Nativity Scene (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Nativity Scene #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today! Time flies by and I think a few Christmas cards will come super handy in your stash. So I hope that a little Nativity scene I created using Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set will inspire you!

Nativity Scene #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Working on the design for this project, I thought that a see through window would be a perfect extra touch to the handmade card since it would decorate both inside and outside parts. So to start, I prepared a regular A2 size card base, die cut a circle on the card front using Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts, closed the card and traced the circle shape on the inside part of the card to use as a guide. Next I die cut a larger circle from a masking paper using again the same Zig Zag Stitched Circles set and divided it into two parts with a curve SugarCut from Card Front Element Builder so that I could ink the sky and the ground parts inside the circle. I applied both positive and negative parts of the mask inside the card following the pencil lines, lifted up the bottom part of the circle, erased pencil lines and inked it with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks and an ink blending tool. I placed the mask back and work on the top portion of the circle blending Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jeans and Black Soot colors.

While the background was drying, I stamped the Jesus baby and the animals on Strathmore Bristol paper with a waterproof black ink and colored them using water based markers and a small water brush from Pentel.

These are all the exact colors used:
TOMBOW MARKERS: n.N15, n.090, n.723, n.873, n.879, n.947, n.977, n.991.
ZIG CKLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.36 Light Blue, n.42 Turquoise Green, n.61 Light Brown, n.63 Ochre, n.67 Mustard, n.71 Flesh Colour, n.72 Beige, n.91 Light Gray, n.96 Mid Gray.

Nativity Scene #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

I fussy cut all the colored elements and painted the cut edges with a black brush tip marker. Assembling the whole project, I heat embossed with a white embossing paste the sentiment and the star from Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set on a night sky, popped the Jesus baby inside the circle and the animals on the card front.

Nativity Scene #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Last but not least I created a quick matching envelope by simply stamping the angel and the star from Come Let Us Adore Him set with the same black ink I used before.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!
