Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Celebrates 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 sweet birthday card with the adorable mischievous kitty!

Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Celebrates stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

It was quite some time I haven’t done a kitty card and so it was time so choose one of the NND cat’s set! The choice was tough because NND has tons of adorable images, but finally I decided to play more with Newton Celebrates stamp set! It’s super versatile and can cover lots of occasions!

To start I die cut the cute kitty in the Martini glass from Strathmore Bristol paper using the coordinating Newton Celebrates Die Set. Next I stamped the outline image and colored it with watercolor markers.

In case we’re wondering, here’re all the exact TOMBOW markers I used on this card: n.N75, n.025, n.026, n.055, n.090, n.126, n.133, n.443, n.491, n.623, n.703, n.800, n.991, n.933.

When I work with cute stamps, I like to keep them in focus and make simple backgrounds. And so I masked the bottom part of the card front with a piece of a sticky tape and inked on top Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet Distress inks. Then I placed on top Confetti stencil and inked again using the same inks to create a tone on tone pattern. A few water droplets added a fun look to the background and finally I could assemble everything and add a birthday sentiment from the same Newton Celebrates stamp set.

Hope you like this cute project and will get inspired! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Tatiana

Let's Celebrate #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today because I have to share a cute all occasions shaker card made with stamps from the Purple Onion Designs winter collection!

Let's Celebrate #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Yes, I’m stretching more my craft supplies! I chose Elm Puppy and Little Packages stamps, stamped them on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and colored with Tombow markers.

As always here’re all the exact colors I used here: Tombow Markers n.026, n.443, n.451, n.476, n.603, n.723, n.725, n.845, n.991.

Let's Celebrate #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

I let air dry all the watercolor pieces and meantime prepared a square 4½” x 4½” shaker card base. To built the shaker area I trimmed another square, die cut a circle window inside, added a piece of a clear acetate from the back side and popped it of a foam tape. Before adhering the window piece, I inked the card base with Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar Distress inks and added a few matching sequins. I decided to frame the shaker window with a scalloped circle and finally arranged the colored elements along with a heat embossed sentiment from Sweet Occasions Sentiment Set.

Hope you like this sweet card! As always thanks so much for stopping by!

All Occasion Winter Card (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Baby, It's Cold Outside #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more impatient to share that I’m joining Purple Onion Designs Design Team! Yaaay!!! I’m so trilled to work with their gorgeous and whimsical stamps and hope to bring you lots of inspiration!

Baby, It's Cold Outside #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

I’m starting with a “stretch your craft supplies” post working more on the holiday stamps since, in my opinion, they can really cover every winter occasion. I used three super adorable critters from Maggie, Curly, Blizzard sets and stamped them on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. Purple Onion Designs has some really amazing stamps for building scenes and so I chose Small Winter Picket Fence and Snowy View stamps. This time in term of materials my choice was on a regular watercolor paper since I decided to paint the background and that certainly require more water than the small images. Finally I could enjoy the coloring process.

As always here’re all the exact colors I used here: Tombow Markers n.N15, n.N65, n.N95, n.126, n.133, n.451, n.491, n.515, n.533, n.553, n.636, n.703, n.850, n.991, n.969.

Baby, It's Cold Outside #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

I let air dry all the watercolor pieces and then started assembling everything with a bit of dimension. I also added a matching bright blue sentiment from Holiday Blurbs I set. Last but not least, I added a small touches of Nuvo White Drops on the background to emulate the falling snow effect.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Holiday Card Series 2018 With Rubber Stamps From Purple Onion Designs

In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and so impatient to share last cards from my Holiday Card Series 2018! Thanks soooooo much for all your love and support! May your holiday season be wonderful, peaceful and filled with love!!!

In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

This year I had a chance to make a little collaboration with Purple Onion Designs and used for the first time their unmounted deeply etched red rubber stamps. I was really impressed by the quality of their products and even though I used a regular acrylic block for stamping instead of a usual stamping poisoning tool, I managed to achieve good impressions on the paper both with Memento Tuxedo Black and VersaFine Onyx Black inks. I haven’t had on hand the accessories necessary to mount this type of stamps, but simply used a bit of non-permanent runner tape on the regular acrylic block as I needed something to stick the stamps to their surface.

In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

My first card is turned out as a soft winter scene colored with watercolor markers and Distress inks. I used a snowman and a few scene building stamps from Purple Onion Designs, stamped them with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a Strathmore Bristol paper and then fussy cut with small sharp scissors leaving a little white edge around.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors used:
Tombow Markers n.090, n.126, n.452, n.623, n.673, n.723, n.991, n.946, n.977;
Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers n.50 Yellow, n.70 Orange, n.80 Violet.

I had no problems to get a very good impression with a copic friendly inks too although the stamp lines on this cute fox from Purple Onion Designs are so tiny.  Even the bold sentiment worked so well! Besides I just love this style of bubble speech!

Baby It's Cold Outside #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

And here’s the complete list of all the copic markers used on this card: YR21-YR15-YR68; YG00-YG21-YG23; W00-W1-W2-W3; C00-C2-C3.

Baby It's Cold Outside #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Since I wanted to keep the main focus on the fox and coloring, I opted for a soft tone-on-tone background using a few shades of blue Distress inks and a Snowfall stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs.

Warmest Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Last but definitely not least, we have a fun Christmas stockings. I stamped a few on Strathmore Bristol paper, the same I used on my first card, using the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

Warmest Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

The color choice was on a traditional holiday reds and greens. I used:

Tombow Markers n.N15, n.126, n.885;
Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Marker n.29 Geranium Red.

I like to get creative with the supplies and think out of boxes and so Snow Fort stamp was looking for me like the bricks on the fireplace. I inked it partially with a brown dye ink and stamped here and there creating the background on this project!!!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Holiday Card Series 2018 – Joyful Tidings

Joyful Tidings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Poinsettia Blooms 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 another holiday card with beautiful poinsettias!

Joyful Tidings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Poinsettia Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start I took Neenah Solar White paper and die cut a bunch of small elements from Poinsettia Blooms Die Set. Then helping myself with a stamping positioning tool for a quick stamping, I added the outlines on the die cuts using the matching Poinsettia Blooms stamp set and a copic friendly black ink. Next I proceeded with coloring using copic markers as you guessed!

In case we’re wondering, here’re all the exact copic markers I used on this card: YG21-YG93-YG95-YG97; YG17-YG67-G28; G09; R22-R24-R27-R29-R39.

Joyful Tidings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Poinsettia Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Creating the background, I played with a fun Argyle Stencil Set. I used three different tones of Distress green inks: Twisted Citron, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and shifted both layers of Argyle Stencil a few times to achieve a full pattern. I also added a few water droplet and colorful splashes on top for more interest. The sentiment from Winter Memories stamp set was simply heat embossed on a piece of a red cardstock with a white embossing paste. Finally I arranged all the elements on regular A2 size card base and adhered with a bit of dimension.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
