Just Because Card – Stretch Your Stamps Card Series (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Just Because #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Thursday!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a card from my Stretch Your Stamps Card Series!

I really looooove Autumn Newton stamp set and when I saw the adorable kitty peeking from behind the pumpkins and apples, I thought that it would be fun to have the same image in the spring key. And so all I needed was to flip through my stash and find a few stamp sets with some flowers and leaves so that I could replace the autumn items with the spring ones. I ended up using a whole bunch of NND stuff creating this card and if you’re curios to see them all, please, continue reading this post.

Obviously, I started with the cutest mischief and die-cut him with the coordinating Autumn Newton Die Set, stamped and watercolored. All the stamps on this card were stamped with Versafine ink because it’s waterproof on Strathmore Bristol paper since it’s my favorite to use with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. And you can find all the exact colors I used here at the bottom of this post. Next came Holding Happiness, Deer Friend, Bitty Bunnies stamp sets and the coordinating Holding Happiness Die Set, Deer Friend Die Set, Bitty Bunnies Die Set for all the flower and leaf images. Once finished coloring, I divided the background into the sky and the grass portions with Land Borders Die Set and then popped up a stitched frame die-cutting once more the same background with Frames & Flags Die Set. I added soft non distractive colors to the background with Distress Oxide inks and an ink blending tool along with a cloudy pattern using Cloudy Sky stencil and a white embossing paste. Finally I assembled everything with some dimension and added a “Just Because” sentiment from Little Lilies stamp set on a fish-tail banner.

That’s all for today! Hope I haven’t missed anything and hope I brought you the idea how you can get more out of the staff you already have in your stash! Take another look on your favorite stamps and try to combine them in an unusual way!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Crafting Desert Divas – March Release Replay – Seasonal Fairies


Happy Friday!

This is my last post for the Craftin Desert Divas March Release! Since the spring is already in the air, I decided to make a matching card using new and so adorable Seasonal Fairies stamp set.

Plant Seeds of Kindness #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Seasonal Fairies Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Well, speaking in terms of color, soft pastel tones were a must and so I grabbed the lightest copic markers from my stash and started working. The cute fairy from Seasonal Fairies set was stamped with a copic friendly black ink on Neenah Solar White paper, colored and then fussy cut leaving a little white border around.

Plant Seeds of Kindness #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Seasonal Fairies Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Then I stared building a scene on a light gray card base. First of all I die-cut a white stitched rectangle to go on top and then a scribbled circle that was placed back with the die cut inlaid technique. Another scribbled circle was colored with copic markers and placed on top slightly aside. Next was a simply stamped sentiment from Garden Bugs set. I used a gray ink instead of a usual black one to keep everything soft. Finally I die cut a few flowers and leaves from Inside Scalloped Circle Dies and Crazy Stitched Frame Dies sets from a simple white cardstock and added color with the same copic markers I used on the fairy. Assembling the card, I added some matching sequins and a bit of fairy dust and magic with a shimmer pen.

Newton’s Nook Designs & Therm O Web Inspiration Week

Hello and welcome!
This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web are partnering for a fabulous inspiration week! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to add fun foils and more to your cards using Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps! There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

Grab Life By The Horn #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Believe In Unicorns stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I played a lot with new to me fabulous products from Therm O Web and mixed them with adorable Newton’s Nook Designs stamps, stencils and dies. The result is two cute cards, I’m sharing today!

Grab Life By The Horn #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Believe In Unicorns stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today’s post is going to be a review on my favorite products from both companies! Curios to know more? So Let’s start with Deco Foil Transfer Gel from Therm O Web! I’m totally in love with this product. It spreads like butter and makes adhere the foil perfectly to your project. The best way to use it is to pair with stencils of course and Starfield Stencil from NND seems to be made for this aim. I used new Sparkling Silver design from Gina K. that has a tiny little stars and a holographic feel, creating the starry background for this card.

Grab Life By The Horn #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Believe In Unicorns stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

All that beautiful sparkle screamed to me for the magical unicorns. And so I added one from Believe In Unicorns stamp set colored with Zig markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. Finishing the card, I used Frames & Flags die set for the fish-tale banners and added a few matching starts from Cosmic Newton stamp set.

My second card features the amazing new Clear Toner Sheets (Distressed Lines) by Therm O Web. You can easily foil them with a heat laminator for really gorgeous results. My choice was on a transfer sheet in Aqua color for this shaker card. Here’s a little tip for you: let your laminator heat for at least 20 minutes before doing the foiling and then prepare the sandwich to go through made from a sheet of cardstock to increase the pressure and a parchment paper bent over in half where you put first a clear toner sheet facing the toner side up and then the foil sheet with a shiny surface up. As a parchment paper you can use both a printer paper and a baking paper you probably have in your kitchen.

Once finished with foiling, I made a shaker base using the negative part of the rectangle frame from Frames & Flags die set. Heat embossed and water colored beautiful flowers from Lovely Blooms set and finally added a personalized sentiment from Simply Relative stamp set.

For My Mama #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Last but not least comes Purple Tape from Therm O Web. It’s really handy to have it in the craft stash. I used it to hold in place both stencils and dies creating these card. It’s thing and sticky enough to secure your projects, but does not tear the paper while you’re removing it.

 

Would you like to win a prize pack including a $25 store credit to Therm O Web AND a $25 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs?

Crafting Desert Divas – February Release Sneak Peek – Jellybean Kisses

Happy Friday!

I’ve popped in to share the last peek on the new February release from Craftin Desert Divas!!!

All the products from the CDD February release will be available for purchase on Friday February, 9 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop.

Ears Wishing You A Hoppy Day #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Jellybean Kisses Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Today CDD is releasing another fun and cute stamp set called Jellybean Kisses that has a bunch of sweet Eater theme images and sentiments. Creating my project I mixed and matched a few “old” products to achieve the card with a centered focal point.

Ears Wishing You A Hoppy Day #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Jellybean Kisses Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

First of all, I used my good old copic friendly black ink to stamp some images from Jellybean Kisses and Somebunny stamp sets. I colored everything with copic markers, of course, and fussy cut around the edge leaving a little white border around. Then I started working on the card base and added a dotted pattern through Sorted Shapes Stencil with an ink blending tool and Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers color. Next step was die cutting: a circle from Stitched In Circle Dies and a grass shaped banner from Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies. Finally I assembled all the elements adding a bit of dimension with a foam tape, some shimmer with Wink Of Stella Clear Brush Glitter Marker and a few matching clear shimmer sequins.

Craftin Desert Divas – May Release Sneak Peek – Market Stand

Hello and welcome!

So happy you’ve joined me today for another sneak peek day from Craftin Desert Divas May release!

May Your Day Bllom With Happiness #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Well, today is all about a gorgeous stamp set called MARKET STAND. I particularly love this new set since it has a great variety of images inside and allows you create a fancy market scenes along with more clean and simple cards! It will work great for any other paper crafting project as well: scrapbook layouts, tags treat, bags and even planners!

May Your Day Bllom With Happiness #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

My today’s choice were copic markers and so I stamped a handsome girl from MARKET STAND set on a copic friendly paper with a copic friendly ink, of course. Please, scroll down towards the bottom of this post to see all the exact copic marker numbers I used for coloring! I LOVE coloring so I spent a little bit of time on coloring process, but don’t feel like you need to do the same! I highly encourage you to try a very simple basic coloring with any color media you have on hand! I’m sure you will like it! Keep practicing and your coloring skills will improve soon!

May Your Day Bllom With Happiness #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Once finished fussy cutting all the colored elements leaving a little bit of a white edge around the stamps, I prepared a background. First I made a circle mask, die-cutting a circle from Stitched In Circles die set out of a masking paper and ink blended some matching Distress inks inside. After removing the mask, I flicked a few times some water droplets on top to achieve a splotchy watercolor look and then finished adding a Scribbled Circle Die on top.

May Your Day Bllom With Happiness #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I finished the card popping on a foam tape all the colored elements, adding the sentiment from the same MARKET STAND stamp set and embellishing with a few matching sequins from Arizona Skies mix.

That all for today! Hope you like this clean and simple card! As always thanks so much for stopping by! And please, check Craftin Desert Divas Event Page on Facebook for more inspiration, amazing projects and sneak peeks from the Design Team, freebies and awesome giveaways!
