Holiday Card Series 2020 – Have A Magical Holiday Season (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Have A Magical Holiday Season #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Hello and welcome!!!

I’ve popped in with another holiday card featuring charming rubber stamps from Purple Onion Designs “The Sweetest Little Town” collection.

This project is very simple and envolves only a bit of watercoloring! To start, I stamped on Fabriano Extra White watercolor paper with waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink the adorable Snow Crooners plus two big Covered Bridge and Frozen Pond backgrounds. I fussy cut the critters and the bridge with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around. White the Frozen Pond was framed with a faux stitched rectangle from SugarPea Designs Card Front Elements 3 SugarCut. Finally I proceeded with coloring using my Mijello Missoin Gold watercolor palette.

An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper and all the colored stamps were popped on top on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look. A narrow strip with a heat embossed in white sentiment from new Holiday Messages set finished this simple watercolor card.

Holidays Card Series 2020 – Happy Winter (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Happy Winter #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Hello and welcome!!!

Today I’m sharing a cute and simple winter scene featuring some fabulous rubber stamps by Purple Onion Designs  illustrated by Julian Charlton.

To start, I stamped a few super fun characters and a couple of accessories from Happy Winter Forest Friends set. I worked on on Copic X-Press paper and used Memento Tuxedo Black ink since it’s copic friendly. I fussy cut all the elements with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around. Before switching to coloring, I finished the stamping with a big background set on Neenah Solar White paper. The Autumnal Tree illustration that completed my scene, goes perfectly for every season, in my opinion.

And here’re all the colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS fox YR000-YR02-YR04-YR09-E08; rabbit and fox T0-T1-T3-T5; tree and log E40-E41-E42-E43-E44; birds Y11-Y13-Y18-Y21; leaves G40-G82; YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG25-YG67; R30-R32-R35-R39; BG10-BG32; B00.

Since the background was a little bit tricky to mask, I decided to skip this step. I took a small blending brush and inked the sky portion with Tumbled Glass Distress ink keeping my hand very light towards the tree parts before proceeding with copic coloring. Then, once finished with coloring, I added some tiny droplets of a white gouache for a falling snow effect. The cute scene was completed with a snow slope and the matching heat embossed in white onto red sentiment that comes from the same Happy Winter Forest Friends set.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Holiday Card Series 2020 – Let’s Fa La La (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Let's Fa La La #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Hello and welcome!!!

I’ve popped in with a quick post since I would like to share another card from my 2020 Holiday Card Series!

This project is really simple to recreate and it doesn’t require any particular skills at all. The cute Christmas scene is made from a couple of new rubber stamps by Purple Onion Designs “The Sweetest Little Town” collection. To start, I stamped Sparkle Tree, Tinsel (squirrel decorating) and Chestnut (bear with ornaments) on Copic X-Press paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I fussy cut all the outline illustrations with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around, and then colored all the elements with copic markers.

Wondering about the colors used by me? Here’s the complete list: COPIC MARKERS bear E0000-E30-E31-E33-E35; squirrel E70-E71-E74-E77 plus T0-T1-T3-T5; stool E41-E42-E43; YG11-G40-G43-G82-G94; R81-R83-R85; B21-B24; Y00-Y13-Y11-Y21-Y35.

Let's Fa La La #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper. While the kraft background was created on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. The wood floor was simply stamped with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink using Cabin Background. The brick pattern was inked through SugarPea Designs English Bold Brick Wall stencil using the same Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink for a tone on tone look and the small blending brush. Finally a few droplets of a white gouache finished the background. The colored elements were popped on a foam tape for a bit of dimension and a coat of a clear shimmer pen along with the matching pink sentiment from Holiday Blurbs I stamp set gave the final touch to this holiday scene.

Holiday Card Series 2020 – Merry & Bright (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Merry & Bright #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Hello and welcome!!!

I’m keeping sharing more examples featuring new absolutely stunning “The Sweetest Little Town” collection of rubber stamps from Purple Onion Designs illustrated by Stacey Yacula!

Today I came up with a slimline card that recreates snowy holiday night and features Flannel (raccoon pulling sled with gifts), Street Light and Single Pine Tree stamps. To start, I stamped all the images on Copic X-Press paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored all the elements with copic markers and then fussy cut with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around.

Wondering about the colors used by me? Here’s the complete list: COPIC MARKERS C00-C0-C1-C2-C3; W00-W0-W1-W2-W3-W4-W5-W6-W7-W8; R30-R32-R35-R37-R39; B21-B24-B26; Y11-Y13-Y18; YG01-YG05; YG21-YG93-YG95; E40-E41-E43-E44.

Merry & Bright #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

The slimline card base was trimmed from Neenah Solar White paper at 8 1/2″ x 7″ size and then scored in half so that the final measures (when closed) are 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. I inked the night sky with Tumbled GlassSalty OceanBlueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks using the ink blending tools instead of the blending brushes for a juicy and vibrant look. The snowy or starry effect (as you prefer! LOL!!!) was created with plain white gouache. I diluted a small amount with water, deepened inside a small regular brush and flicked tons of splotches all across the card front. The snow hill was die cut from Newton’s Nook Designs Land Borders Die Set and popped along with all other elements on a foam tape.

Finally the “Wishing You A Christmas That Is Merry & Bright” sentiment from new Holiday Messages stamp set was simply added inside the card.

Trifold Holiday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Today I came up with a fun trifold project that features two wonderful big background stamps: Bakery and Toy Store. To start, I trimmed all three layers from Strathmore Bristol paper since I was going to color the stamped images with water based markers. The first piece where I stamped the Bakery measured 5″ x 4 1/4″; the second one with the Toy Store was 5 3/8″ x 4 1/4″; and the card base – 6 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.

The card base was scored 1/2″ from each side so that the whole card when closed came out as a regular extended A2 size project (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″). All the stamping was made with waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Before switching to coloring, I simply stamped the matching sentiment in the center of the card base (the biggest piece with two scored folds) from new Holiday Messages set and set this element aside for a while.

Since I came across my old set of Distress markers that I haven’t used for years, I decided to give them a try. The blending was made with a regular brush and water.

As always, here’s the complete list of all the colors used on this card: DISTRESS MARKERS Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Moved Lawn, Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood, Worn Lipstick, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo plus TOMBOW marker n.856 (bright red shade that I didn’t find among Distress markers).

I fussy cut both colored backgrounds with my sharp small scissors following the roof lines as you can see in the pictures and glued both piece to the card base. I decided to skip all other embellishments and leave the main focus on the watercolored Christmas streets.
