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!

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!

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.

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!

Craftin Desert Divas – May Release Sneak Peek – Garden Bugs

Hello and welcome!

So happy you’ve joined me today and so excited to start the release week from Craftin Desert Divas with a bright summer feeling card! Can you believe it’s already May? Yes, time flies by and summer colors pop somehow in my head. So I’m so enthusiastic to see a lot of wonderful, cute and fun summer products in the Craftin Desert Divas May release.

Oopsy Daisy #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Garden Bugs stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

On the first day we are sneak peeking GARDEN BUGS stamp set filled with a lot of cute stamps and some great sentiments. This new set have a few fantastic small images as well and so I decided to stamp them in a random patter on a watercolor paper and made a super simple watercoloring adding bright summer colors.

Oopsy Daisy #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Garden Bugs stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

While the watercolor piece was drying, I started working on my card base. I went for a 4 Bar size card this time since the images I used for watercoloring, seemed to be more balanced on a slightly smaller than usual A2 card. Ones scored it measures 4 7⁄8 by 3 1⁄2 inches. Then I prepared another slightly smaller piece out of a white card stock, die-cutting on it a scalloped circle from CDD Stitched In Circles die set to form a sort of a window that would frame my watercolor piece. The shape of this die seems to go so well with the cute images from the watercolor part because reminds me flowers.

At this point I added the sentiment from the same GARDEN BUGS stamp set and assembled everything gluing the watercolor panel directly to the card base and popping up on top the die-cut part with a foam tape.

Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #47

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #47 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

You're Amazing #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The current challenge is a color one. And I LIKE so much the bright juicy colors from the inspiration graphic! So I hope they will inspire you to play along, just make a project using pink, orange, yellow and teal inspired by the graphic you see below paired with at least one Newton’s Nook Designs brand stamp or die and upload it here for a chance to win a store credit at Newton’s Nook Designs online shop. You can create a card, a tag, a scrapbook page, a treat bag or any other projects related to the papercrafting.

I just can’t stop playing with the amazing Lovely Blooms stamp set and this time I went to emboss resist and added color with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since they are always a winning choice for bright and colorful projects!

You're Amazing #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started working on Bristol paper and stamped a bunch of small flowers and a few leaf branches from Lovely Blooms set with a clear sticky ink. I heat embossed all the flowers with a white embossing powder and added color with Zig markers. Once everything was dry, I die-cut all the elements using the coordinating dies from Lovely Blooms die set.

You're Amazing #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Then I prepared a watercolor background using a traditional watercolor paper since it holds water much better than Bristol one and a traditional teal watercolor from Schmincke. I also tried to heat emboss the matching white sentiment directly on the background, but it was not bold enough to create a contrast so I decided not to give up and fix it putting a small tag on top where I simply stamped with a black ink “You’re Amazing” sentiment from NND Beautiful Plumage stamp set. A few black details were a perfect finish touch!

That’s all for today! Hope you like my simple card and it will inspire you to join this new challenge! I’ll catch you up on the Inky Paws Challenge Blog! Have a great week!

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge – May 2017

I Will Carry You In My Heart #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fairytale Dreams stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Happy Friday!

I’m so excited to bring you my daily post and the inspiration project for the May Monthly Social Media Challenge at Craftin Desert Divas blog today! Yes, the time flies by and summer is approaching so fast! And it means that bright summer colors take place over soft pastel spring ones like on an amazing mood board from Craftin Desert Divas!

Here’s my take on the May mood board! I was really inspired by its vibrant colors and beautiful flowers so that I immediately thought about the fantastic tropical flowers from new Floral Wreaths stamp set. And since we are in the mood of summer vacations somewhere on a tropical island, I thought that a cute little girl from Fairytale Dreams the one that reminds me so much Moana from Disney movie, would be really perfect for this card.

I Will Carry You In My Heart #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fairytale Dreams stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I started by stamping all the images with a copic friendly ink on a copic friendly paper, of course, and fussy cutting them leaving a little white edge around. I also stamped at this point the matching sentiment from the same Fairytale Dreams stamp set, shaped it into a fish-tale banner and arranged all the elements on my card base.

I Will Carry You In My Heart #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fairytale Dreams stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I decided to go for a clean and simple look and don’t add any other layers, but instead spent some time coloring with copic markers the fabulous stamps. As always I’m leaving all the exact colors I used at the bottom of this post, but don’t feel like you need to have copic markers to recreate this card or invest so much time on making fancy shading. I think that even a very simple coloring with any media that you have on hand, would work great and give you a beautiful result.

I Will Carry You In My Heart #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fairytale Dreams stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Finally I popped on a foam tape the colored floral wreath and the girl and just for something little extra added a few drops of Glossy Accents on top.

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you’ll join Craftin Desert divas May Monthly Social Media Challenge! You can 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!

Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #46

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #46 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

For My Special Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The current challenge is a sketch one. I like sketch challenges and hope you’ll play along as well, just make a project inspired by the graphic you see below paired with at least one Newton’s Nook Designs brand stamp or die and upload it here for a chance to win a store credit at Newton’s Nook Designs online shop. You can create a card, a tag, a scrapbook page, a treat bag or any other projects related to the papercrafting.

Today I played once more with the amazing Lovely Blooms stamp set. I love it so much and just couldn’t stop playing again and again! Plus it’s so perfect for spring cards!

For My Special Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This card came out very quickly. I die-cut a bunch of flowers and leaves using the coordinating Lovely Blooms die set and made my stamping using the negative part left from the die-cuts and a stamping positioning tool. I used a copic friendly paper pared with a copic friendly black ink and finished with a super simple coloring. The card base was made out of a watercolor paper. I smooched a very light blue ink using a piece of clear plastic and added some water droplets on top to create a splotchy background. The personalized sentiment from Simply Relative stamp sets was heat embossed on a piece of a black cardstock and I left nothing to do, but arrange all the element and glue them together.

That’s all for today! Hope you like my simple card and it will inspire you to join this new challenge! I’ll catch you up on the Inky Paws Challenge Blog! Have a great week!
