Holiday Card Series 2020 – From Out Gnome To Yours (ft. SugarPea Designs)

From Our Gnome To Yours #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gnome For Christmas 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 clean and simple holiday card highlighting the cute Gnome for Christmas stamp set!

To start, I die cut all the shapes I needed for this project using the coordinating Gnome for Christmas SugarCut and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I worked on Strathmore Bristol paper and stamped the outline images from Gnome for Christmas stamp set with with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since both these products work excellent with water based markers. The negative parts of the dies came very handy and made the perfect guide for the alignment inside the stamping positioning tool. Finally I colored all the stamps with Tombow markers, blending the colors with the small waterbrush from Pentel.

And here’s the complete list of all the colors used by me on this card: TOMBOW MARKERS N25, N79, 158, 177, 195, 526, 856, 905, 992.

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) white card base was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper along with a faux stitched rectangle with three square windows inside both die cut from Card Front Elements 3 SugarCut.  I prepared apart a sky background by inking a piece of Bristol paper with Faded Jeans Oxide Distress ink. I heat set the ink and then added the Falling Snow effect, by first taping the stencil to the paper and then applying a plain white embossing paste on top. I stamped the matching cute pun directly on the card front using the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink for a perfect match and started assembling all the elements together with a bit of dimension. The final touch gave a few clear iridescent sequins.

Let’s Stay Home Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog!!! Today I came up with a clean and simple copic colored scene highlighting new adorable Let’s Stay Home stamp and die sets!

Let’s Stay Home stamp set is one of my favorites! It filled with lots of different accessories that give so many possibilities for scene building cards. To start, I used the coordinating Let’s Stay Home SugarCut that comes so handy when you have to work with many small elements. I die cut all the shapes I need for today’s project form Copic X-Press paper, using my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. Next I switched to the stamping positioning tool and stamped the outline images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink since it works great with alcohol based markers. Finally I proceeded with coloring using copic markers.

As always, I’m sharing with you all the colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS RV00-RV21-RV23-RV25; BG0000-BG10-BG11-BG13; T0-T3; YR30-YR31-Y21-YR24-YR27; E99; E31-E35;G20-YG13-G24.

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) white card base was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper. Another additional square piece that measures 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ was cut out for the background and embellished with English Bond Brick Wall pattern. I taped well the stencil to the paper to prevent any movement before inking it with Antique Linen Distress and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks. Finally I assembled the whole scene together popping some stamps on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a heat embossed sentiment that comes from the same Let’s Stay Home stamp set.

Holiday Card Series 2020 – Warmest Wishes Card For The SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #71

Warmest Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Open Book SugarCut by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

Today is my turn to get you inspired for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up Challenge! I came up with a holiday  card that opens my Holiday Card Series 2020! Wow! Can’t believe it’s time for Christmas cards again!

In case you want to play along, as well, here’s how you can do that: you have all month to play along and make a project using just the inspiration, just the sketch or Mix it Up and use both! It is totally up to you! You can find all the rules at SugarPea blog right here!!!

To start, I made a bunch of die cutting using Open Book SugarCut to achieve all the floral elements I needed from Neenah Solar White paper. It was easier for me to use a plain white cardstock and then add colors, using my copic markers, but you definitely cat switch directly to a colorful cardstock or a patterned paper instead.

As always I’m sharing with you all the exact colors used here: COPIC MARKERS R11-R12-R14-R22-R27 plus RV10; YG21-YG01-YG23.

An extended A2 size card base was made from the same Neenah Solar White paper that I used before. I masked a wide stripe directly on the card front using a post-it sticky tape. Next I applied and secured Torn Strips Stencil on top and inked the pattern with a very light hand using two tones of the light pink dye inks from my stash and the blending brushes. I also prepared a narrow stripe cut out from a black cardstock where I repeatedly heat embossed the sentiment from Everyday Sentiments stamp set. Once glued the sentiment stripe directly to the card front, I arranged the flowers and leaves in a circle and finished with a few clear sparkling sequins.

You're So Kind #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hey Fall stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

On my stop for this hop I’m sharing some cuties from adorable Hey Fall stamp set. I looooove so much all the sweet critters from the set which are just perfect for scene building. To start, I made all the die cutting using the coordinating Hey Fall SugarCut. I worked on Neenah Solar White paper since it’s copic friendly and it’s also perfect as a card base. My MISTI tool came very handy for the stamping. I used the negative parts of the dies to help me with the alignment and managed to achieve all the elements in no time. I chose Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping the open images from Hey Fall stamp set since it’s meant to work with alcohol markers.

As always here’s the complete list of all the colors used here: COPIC E0000-E30-E31-E33-E37; E41-E44; YR000-YR00-YR02-YR12-YR14-YR21-YR24-YR30; V12-V15-V09; G20-G24-G28; W00-W1-W3; Y13-Y35-Y17; R12-R14-R27; B00-BG52; BV01 for shades.

You're So Kind #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hey Fall stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

The background was inked with Simon Says Stamp Twirling Tutu, Melon and Surf Blue inks. I used the blending brushes and a very light hand to achieve a soft and smooth result and then flicked a few tiny shimmer droplets just for something little extra. I popped the background piece on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″), arranged all the colored stamps and finished with a a heat embossed sentiment and a few clear sparkling sequins.
