It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Borders Die Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Today’s inspiration graphic has a limited color palette and it’s soooooo beautiful and elegant!!!! The design of this project is a take on my own card that I made a few years ago! It’s still so popular on Pinterest that I decided to recreate it using Craftin Desert Divas products!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Borders Die Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

First of all I made a bit of die-cutting preparing the circle window and the winter scene. I really love Fall Border Dies set since it’s so beautiful and versatile! You can cover the themes all year round with it!!! For the card base I used a very light blue cardstock and added some texture with a winter feel through Snowflake Flurries Stencil. Once the embossing paste was dry, I started assembling the whole scene giving a lot of dimension with a foam tape and finally added faux snow using Snow Marker. Here’s a little tip for you: for a better control I squeeze the liquid from the marker on a piece of paper or acetate and use a tooth pick to apply the liquid to the desirable spots. Snow Marker needs to be heat settled with a heat gun! But be sure not to overheat it since it can start looking burnt and assume brown shades! Guess how I know it!!! LOL!!!

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge – September 2017

A Note Of Thanks #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Border dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Happy Friday and welcome!

I’m up on Craftin Desert Divas blog today with a card that is focused on dies and was inspired by the beautiful moad boad made for the CDD September Monthly Social Media Challenge! The current theme is autumn and it couldn’t be any perfect for this time of the year! Look at those gorgeous autumn colors and amazing images!

Of course, I had to play more with the fantastic dies from CDD September release. Those beautiful stitched trees come with Fall Border Dies set.

A Note Of Thanks #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Border dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The idea was to create an autumn scene with a circle focal point and add a bit of dimension for some inserest. This project is super easy to recreate and doesn’t require mad coloring skills at all. My choice were Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since I just love their bold vibrabt colors, but you can use any watercolor media you have on hand or even you Distress or dye inks. My win win combo with Zig markers is Strathmore Bristol paper and a small water brush from Pentel. I made a simple splotchy non perfect watercoloring and while the dies were drying I started working on the card base. I scored in half 11″ by 4¼″ piece of a red card stock and cut out an additional slithtly smaller white panel where I die cut a circle using Stitched In Circle Dies.

A Note Of Thanks #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Border dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Finally assembling the card I adhered the watercolored trees directly to the card base using a foam tape and then popped on top the circle piece where I previously stamped a sentiment from Harvest Happiness stamp set. Of course, couldn’t skip a few matching sequins from Maple Leaves Sequins set.

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you’ll join Craftin Desert divas September Monthly Social Media Challenge for a chance to win some amazing prizes! All you need to do is to create a project inspired by the current mood board and using at least one CDD brand product!

The second card I’m sharing today is a little bit different. I switched to copic markers and distress inks this time and worked with more soft colors, trying to keep however a bit of shading for more realistic look!

All that cuteness comes with Harvest Happiness stamp set and was paired with Fall Border Dies and Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies to complete the layout!
