Today I watercolored a lovely pirate scene using a big background stamp called Tropical Island, the adorable Felix (Pirate Cat with Flag), the cutest Chimp along with a few matching accessories: Treasure Chest, Wood Barrel, Pirate Possessions. Since I used regular watercolors from my customised watercolor palette on this project, I chose a hot pressed Extra White Watercolor paper from Fabriano brand and VersaFine Onyx Black since it allows to achieve easily a perfect impression. Once colored, the critters and the accessories were fussy cut with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around.

An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was created from a kraft cardstock. I arranged on top all the colored elements with a bit of dimension and finished with a matching heat embossed sentiment from Pirate-ments Set. Easy!!! Right?!

Purple Onion Designs New Under The Sea & It’s a Pirate’s Life Collections By Shari Bresciani

My Deepest Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

It’s time for new stunning goodies from Purple Onion Designs! I’m so excited to introduce you two new fantastic Under The Sea and It’s a Pirate’s Life Collections of rubber stamps both illustrated by super talented Shari Bresciani!

SALE ALLERT! Don’t miss a chance to grab your favorite stamps from Purple Onion Designs at a discounted price! The anniversary sale will end on Monday, August 24th. All stamps will be 25% off (with a few exclusions: Together Stamp Set & Sandy Allnock’s class stamp bundles).

My Deepest Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

My first card turned out very cheerful and bright! I mixed and matched lots of different stamps from new Under The Sea Collection. I worked on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. I stamped, heat set and fussy cut with my sharp small scissors all the elements I needed for the scene, leaving a little white edge around.

Here’s the complete list of all the stamps used on this project:
Octopus
Saltwater Fish Set
Tropical Fish Set (Stripes & Spikes)
Sea Horse
Seashells & Starfish
Rocks, Seaweed & Coral
Seaweed, Tubes & Stripe Coral Set
Branch Coral Set
Sea-timents (sentiment) Set

I colored all the stamps with Tombow markers and a small waterbrush from Pentel. The “sea water” rectangle was simply watercolored on a piece of an inexpensive watercolor paper that I have on hands. I use regular watercolors for this element and purposely kept the watercoloring very splotchy and uneven for a fun effect. The sentiment from  Sea-timents Set was heat embossed on a narrow strip of a black cardstock. Finally I could arrange all the elements on a faux dotted panel die cut from SugarPea Designs Card Front Element Builder II set along with a small slightly offset rectangle window. A few clear droplets gave a finish touch to this project.

As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the markers used here: TOMBOW N55, 025, 133, 493, 725, 665, 905, 933.

Fresh Summer Watercolor Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Squeeze The Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lemon Twist stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a fresh summer card!

Today’s card is entirely made from one stamp set! I played with small, but incredibly beautiful Lemon Twist stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs and my ever favorite technique – HEAT EMBOSSING! To start, I die cut all the shapes I need for this project using the coordinating Lemon Twist Die Set. I work on Extra White Hot Pressed Watercolor paper from Fabriano brand and heat embossed the lemons with a fine white embossing powder. If you have troubles with heat embossing, I highly recommend you to prep the paper with a generous coat of Powder Tool to prevent the embossing powder from sticking to your paper where you don’t want it. Then use VersaMark Clear Sticky ink since this ink stays wet for a while and allows to achieve a perfect impression. Once heat set the embossing powder, I proceeded with coloring using regular watercolors from my customised palette.

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base was made from Bazzill Blueberry Sour cardstock. I heal embossed on the card front the sentiment along with a few lemon zests using a fine gold embossing powder and the same Powder Tool plus VersaMark Clear Sticky ink that I mentioned before. Then I flicked some tiny gold droplets and finally popped the colored lemons towards the top and bottom of the card front.

I Carrot About You Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

I Carrot About You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottontail Cuties stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog!!! Today I came up with a cute and simple copic colored card featuring so versatile and just adorable Cottontail Cuties stamp and die sets!

Cottontail Cuties stamp set comes with a few lovely critters and tons of small accessories useful to build any scene and cover a lot of occasions that’s why the coordinating Cottontail Cuties SugarCut is a game changer for me! It allows to save a lot of time and die cut quickly all the elements for a project. Once finished with the die cutting, I stamped the outline stamps from Cottontail Cuties stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I work on Neenah Solar White paper this time and used it both for the stamping since it’s copic friendly, for the inked background behind the bunny and for the card base. All the stamped elements as you may guess were colored with copic markers.

In case you’re interested, I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS bunny T0-T1-T3 plus RV00-RV21; fence E30-E31-E33-E47; tomatoes R20-R22-R37; leaves YG01-YG05; carrots YR00-YR04-YR18.

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) white card base was embellished with a light grey leaf pattern achieved with   Leaf Cover Plate. I ran a piece of grey cardstock inside my Big Shot machine with Leaf Cover Plate die facing down the grey cardstock only once and without adding any additional pressure. As the result I got a deeply embossed pattern that was perfect to use as a non distracting background. The scene background was arranged on a circle die cut from Bamboo Garden SugarCut. I inked the grass portion towards the bottom part of the circle with Simon Says Stamp Willow dye ink through the edge of Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil. Then I added the sky portion mixing together Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass, Lavender and Apricot dye inks. I used the blending brushes for this purpose to achieve a soft and smooth look. Finally I arranged all the colored elements on the card front inside the inked circle and finished with a matching heat embossed sentiment and a few sequins.

Just Beecause Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Just Beecause #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamp and die sets by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog!!! Today I mixed and matched a few different stamp and dies and paired them on a cute and simple card with a bit of summer vibes and sunshine!

To start, I die cut some honey combs using Stacked Honeycombs SugarCut from Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock since it’s white and works great with Distress inks. I prepared an extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) white card base from Neenah Solar White paper and arranged the die cuts on the card front. I inked some combs with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seeds and Fossilized Amber Distress inks and the blending brushes. I also added some tiny droplets both to the card base and the honey combs using Vintage Photo Distress ink and a plain white gouache to add more interest to the pattern. Before popping the honey combs on a foam tape, I simply stamped the matching sentiment from Hey Honey stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using my MISTI tool.

The beautiful flowers and leaves were die cut from Floral Pocket Tag SugarCut. I worked on some scraps of a white cardstock and then added colors with Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron and Moved Lawn Distress inks using again he blending brushes. The cutest bees come from Hey Honey stamp set that I used before for the sentiment. I helped myself with the coordinating Hey Honey SugarCut to die cut quickly a few bee shapes and then stamped the bodies with Hero Arts Butter Bar dye ink. Finally I added the black stripes and wings to the bees using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and started arranging all the die cuts on the card front. A few clear sparkling sequins finished this cute and lovely project.
