Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #445 (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)


Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be a “Guest Sweetie” today over at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog! Have you heard about them? This is such a SWEET Challenge Group! For each challenge they post an amazing cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?

Well, the roses from the inspiration picture made me immediately think about the super adorable Lovely Blooms stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs and so grabbed some flowers and leaves and heat embossed a bunch on a white Bristol paper using a white embossing powder.

I used Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint shades and a few ink blending tools to add color. This is a super fun, quick and easy way to do that since the embossed lines resist from being inked and remain white revealing the pattern.

Next I die cut all the elements with the coordinating dies that came so handy for this project along with a “MOM” sentiment using new Essential Alphabet dies. Finally all the elements were arranged on a plain white card base and adhered with a bit of dimention.

Crafting Desert Divas – December Release – Hugs And Kisses

Hugs And Kisses #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hugs And Kisses Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Wednesday!

Sharing another release replay from  Craftin Desert Divas! I used a few fun new products on this simple card!

Hugs And Kisses #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hugs And Kisses Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

I started with adorable Hugs And Kisses stamp set, grabbed two cuties, stamped them with Memento Dye Ink, colored with copic markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around. Then prepared a heart background ink blending Worn Lipstick Oxide ink through new Hearts Galore stencil! I tried to keep the pressure uneven, making ink blending, and to achieve a fun look adding a few water droplets at the end. Finally I stamped the sentiment directly on the card base with the same black ink I used before, popped up a few tiny hearts die-cut from Inside Scalloped Octagons set and colored with the same shades of pink as the cute trolls. A few clear sparkle sequins and a shimmer pen added a finish touch.

You Make Cold Days Warmer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Toucan Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There couldn’t be any proper date for this hop because today December, 8 in Italy we celebrate Feast of the Immaculate Conception! It’s day off and it’s tradition to deck the halls right on this day!!! So meanwhile you’re reading this post, I’m putting up my christmas tree, lights and nativity scene. It really beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! LOL!!!

You Make Cold Days Warmer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Toucan Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For this hop I created a clean and simple card with a pop of bright colors on a tropical birds dressed up for holiday period! I thought it would be fun to give another “life” and interpretation to the summer stamps and transform them into the holiday ones! And so I started stamping with a black waterproof ink on a hot pressed watercolor paper the cute toucans from NND Toucan Party stamp set along with some winter accessories from Newton’s Holiday Mischief and Santa Paws Newton sets. I colored everything with regular watercolors, fussy cut right up against the stamp lines and colored all the edges with a black marker to hide any imperfection due to the cutting. For the background I used a negative part of the circle die-cut from a masking paper, added Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers color. I let everything dry before applying a textured snowflakes through gorgeous Snowfall stencil  using a white embossing paste. Finally I assembled everything popping up some elements on a foam tape and simply stamping the sentiment and a few beautiful snowflakes with the same black ink I used before.

Today the Design Team is showcasing a new super fun and cute Hugs And Kisses stamp set. I’m just in looove with those cuties!!!

Love #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hugs And Kisses Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

And so I grabbled a few, stamped them with a copic friendly black ink, colored with copic markers, of course, and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around. Then I prepare the ink blended background with a cloud die from Rainbow Die set used as a stencil and a new to me Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers color. I think it’s my ever favorite! I’m totally in love with this color! Assembling the card I added a few more die-cut clouds, stamped the simple “love” sentiment and popped up many elements on a foam tape. The final steps were some clear sequins and a shimmer pen.

Crafting Desert Divas – November Release – Snow Happy


Happy Sunday!

Early post this morning because I’m going to have a copic class today! Soooo excited about it and hope to learn more on these markers! Meanwhile I’m leaving you with another look at the Craftin Desert Divas November Release!!!

Holly Jolly #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Happy stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

This is my second take on the super cute Snow Happy stamp set! These images were screaming to be mounted on the action wobbles for a fun interactive element! Children will love it for sure!

Holly Jolly #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Happy stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

This card started with my usual win win combo: Strathmore Bristol paper, Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a small watercolor brush from Pentel. I added a fun yeti from Yeti Fun to this card as well with a textured fur made out of  Snow Marker. There so much fun things you can do with this stuff!!! As a background I used the largest frame from Crazy Stitched Frame set die-cut from Distress watercolor cardstock and Distress Oxide inks in Broken China and Cracked Pistachio colors! Once finished ink blending, I flicked some water droplets on top and dabbed the excess with a paper towel.

Holly Jolly #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Happy stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The sentiment from Holly Jolly  set was simply stamped on the background with a matching black ink that I used previously on the images! 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 this color combo!
