And here’s my first card featuring both new products!

Truly Grateful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with an ombre stamping aligning the leave stamps in a stamping positioning tool! First I inked the stamps with the lightest shade of the dye ink and after added some darker spots for more dimention and interest! I dabbed the stamps with a clean cloth before transfering the ink to the paper to soften the edges and achieve more gradient look!

Truly Grateful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookThe leaves from Shades of Autumn stamp set are pretty big so I tried to leave the card background quite clean and simple. I added a bit of color ink smooching Peacock Feathers Distress ink, heat embossing the sentiment from the same stamp set with a Liquis Platinum embossing powder on a piece of a black card stock, adding tone on tone details on one side throuhg Falling Leaves stencil and finally adding some matching splotches and a few glossy details!

Give Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookOn my second card I made a circle focal point in the center of the card base and heat embossed the beautiful handwritten sentiment in white on a kraft card base that come with Shades of Autumn stamp set!

Give Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookThen I masked the sentiment and added the falling leaves around it! I decided for a tone on tone gradient look that would match the kraft card base so I mixed my own shades of the embossing paste from a plain white one. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks for that. Once removed the stencil, I sprinkled some clear sparkling embossing powder on top, let everything air dry for about 40 minutes and heat set the embossing powder only at that point! Finally I assembled everything adding a few colorful details!

Truly Grateful #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Camper stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The second card I’m sharing today is a little bit different. I switched to copic markers and distress inks this time and worked with more soft colors, trying to keep however a bit of shading for more realistic look!

A Note Of Thanks #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Harvest Happiness stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

All that cuteness comes with Harvest Happiness stamp set and was paired with Fall Border Dies and Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies to complete the layout!

Thank You Pop Up Shaker Card

Thank You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mini Thank You stamp set by Studio Katia #studiokatia

Happy Friday!

I’ve popped in for a super quick post just to share this pop up shaker card I’ve made a few days ago.

Thank You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mini Thank You stamp set by Studio Katia #studiokatia

Do you remember that recently Newton’s Nook Designs and Studio Katia made a super fun summer blog hop showcasing NND stamps paired with SK dies! If not, you can check my post right here. Katia was sooooooo kind to send me some extra goodies including this Mini Thank You stamp set! And so I thought that it would be a perfect way to say thank you creating a small 4 Bar card for her!

Thank You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mini Thank You stamp set by Studio Katia #studiokatia

I started this card with a shaker element die-cutting 5 times Inside Scalloped Circle Dies from Craftin Desert Divas. First I colored with copic markers the inside part of the die, making a gradient background and adding some details with a copic colorless blender and only then heat embossed with a white embossing powder the beautiful hand written sentiment from Mini Thank You set. Make sure to follow the same order since embossing could ruin your copic markers!!!

Thank You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mini Thank You stamp set by Studio Katia #studiokatia

Assembling the card, I stacked together the frame elements of the Inside Scalloped Circle Dies and put like a puzzle the negative part inside. The shaker part was popped up on top of the card base previously embossed with an embossing paste creating non-distractive white on white irregular dots pattern. The inside element was filled with a mix of sequins that had some pretty butterfly confetti inside (sorry, cannot find the link to this mix) and a few matching butterflies colored with copics from the same Mini Thank You were applied on the card base.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this clean simple card with a pop up shaker element!  Have a great week-end!

Tatiana

Craftin Desert Divas – May Release Day 1

Hello and welcome!

I’m sooooo excited to be up on the Craftin Desert Divas blog today sharing a few cute projects!!!

Thanks A Bushel #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Today is also the first day of the Craftin Desert Divas May Release and so I just couldn’t help playing with the FANTASTIC new stamps and dies! In fact, I mixed and matched a few new stamps and dies and have two fun projects to share!

Thanks A Bushel #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The first clean and simple card features an AMAZING new MARKET STAND stamp set. I particularly LOVE this one since it filled with a super adorable images that offer you infinite possibilities of use and suit any kind of paper crafting project: cards, tags, scrapbook layouts, planners, treat bags!

Thanks A Bushel #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Since the stamps from MARKET STAND set are so adorable, I thought that a clean and simple look would be perfect for my card! I started with A2 size card base made out of a Bristol paper and created a non-distractive background, inkblending a very light blue Distress ink from one corner. Then I went a little bit crazy, stamping and fussy-cutting a whole bunch of the images from the set. I worked with a copic friendly paper and ink at this point since my intention was to color everything with copic markers. Please, scroll down towards the bottom of this post to see all the exact copic marker numbers I used for coloring!

Thanks A Bushel #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Market Stand stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Once completed coloring, I stamped the sentiment from the same MARKET STAND set, popped up all the elements on a foam tape and added a few crystal clear sequins as a finish touch.

Plant Smiles #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Garden Border die set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

My  second card is completely different from the previous one! In fact, I used dies and digital stamps all from the CDD new May release and a few fun watercolor techniques as well!

I started with a 3 by 9 inches watercolor panel and the slightly larger coordinating card base that once scored measures 3 ½ by 9 inches. First I die-cut the watercolor paper 3 times using new GARDEN BORDER die set and ended up with 4 more or less equal pieces. I smooched some Distress inks onto a craft sheet, spritzed them with water and put my watercolor paper on top. I repeated the process a few times, heat drying the paper every time. The top die-cut part was colored in a light blue shade since it was going to be a sky portion for my scene, on the others I used a few brown shades, instead, to emulate soil.

Plant Smiles #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Garden Border die set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

While the watercolor elements were drying, I printed on a Bristol paper with a laser printer a few cute digital stamps: No Bunny Like You, Carrot Harvest and Harvest Crates; watercolor them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, cut out right against the stamp edge and hide any imperfection from cutting, applying a black marker all around every image.

Plant Smiles #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Garden Border die set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Finally I literary rooted my carrots into the soil part as GARDEN BORDER die makes the fantastic marks into your paper that allow you to insert any kind of plant inside, and adhered the top part with a foam tape for some dimension and interest. The sentiment from LADYBUG GARDEN stamp set was simply heat embossed at the bottom with a white embossing powder.

That all for today! Hope you like these lovely cards! 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!

Thank You #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Joyful Day digital stamp by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Hello guys!

I’ve popped in for a super quick post just to share a brand new Joyful Day digi stamp from Craftin Desert Divas. Hurry up! You can get it here for free now!

Thank You #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Joyful Day digital stamp by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I printed this cute squirrel riding a bike on a toner gray paper, simply colored with color pencils and die-cut using a scalloped frame from Fancy Frame Dies set. I also used a colorful plaid pattern paper from Easter Express Paper Pad and transformed my card into a “Thank You” one adding the sentiment from Simply Said stamp set just because it’s always so handful to have a few “thanks” cards in the stash!
