All Hearts Come Home For Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston's Home For Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with Winston’s Home For Christmas stamp set and the adorable bear in the car filled with lots of holiday stuff that was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a piece of a watercolor paper along with a part of the matching sentiment (the word “Christmas was cut apart) and then colored with regular watercolors. Next the whole piece was framed with a scalloped die from Frames & Flags die set.

Then came a fun part as I took a piece of Deco Foil Clear Designer Toner Sheet and added on top my out design through Petite Snow stencil using the Deco Foil Transfer Gel and once dried foiled it with Silver Deco Foil by Therm O Web and a hot laminator. And wow!!! I turned out perfectly!!!! Next I scored a regular A2 size card base and cut out a window inside the front part with Framework die set, adhered my silver snowy pattern from the back side and covers the edged by another die cut frame. Last but not least I decided to add more sparkle die cutting the big word Christmas from Holiday Greetings die set and using Toner Sheets instead of a regular paper so that I cam run it through a heat laminator with a Red Deco Foil.

Holiday Card Series 2018 – One Stamp Set Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Sending You Candy Cane Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Merry Makers stamp set by SugarPea Designs

 

Hello and welcome!
I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today and to share with you a clean and simple card made from one stamp set called Merry Makers.

Sending You Candy Cane Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Merry Makers stamp set by SugarPea Designs

Merry Makers set has a few super cute elves and so I decided to challenge myself and make a card using only one stamp set. To start I stamped all the characters on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof, colored with water based markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around.

Here’s the complete list of all the markers I used:
TOMBOW MARKERS: n.885, n.947.
ZIG CKLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.41 Light Green, n.50 Yellow, n.51 Lemon Yellow, n.61 Light Brown, n.64 Oatmeal, n.71 Flesh Colour, n.72 Beige, n.91 Light Gray, n.94 Gray Brown.

I was not satisfied how the elves were fitting on a regular A2 size card base and so I prepared a longer one measuring 7½” x 3½” from a plain white cardstock. I also trimmed an additional rectangle slightly smaller than the card base where I die cut 3 circles using Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts. Before starting assembling everything together, I stamped the sentiment using the same Merry Makers set and the same VersaFine black ink.

Finally I popped all the elements on a foam tape and added a fun dotted pattern to the card base using Spots & Stripes Brights paper pad.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up October Challenge #48

Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Fox stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
Today I’ve popped in with an inspiration project made for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up challenge. 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!!!

I just cannot resist to the cuteness and so I got my hands on the super adorable Fall Fox stamp set. To start, I stamped the fox and a few small elements on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof as my intention was to use watercolor markers for coloring.

And here’s the complete list of all Tombow markers used here: n.090, n.126, n.493, n.873, n.885, n.912, n.946, n.990, n.991.

Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Fox stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

For the layout I prepared a scalloped rectangle die cutting Countryside Charm Patterned Paper Collection pad with Card Front Element Builder and two circles using different sizes from Zig Zag Stitched Circles set. At this point, I also heat embossed the sentiment from the same Fall Fox stamp set with a white embossing paste on a piece of black cardstock and shaped it as a fish-tailed banner with the scissors. I don’t have the coordinating dies for Fall Fox stamp set and so I used again the small sharp scissors and fussy cut all the colored images leaving a little white edge around. Finally I started assembling everything with a bit of dimension popping some elements a foam adhesive and wrapped around some red and white twine to tie all pieces together.

See Through Window Card With Nativity Scene (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Nativity Scene #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today! Time flies by and I think a few Christmas cards will come super handy in your stash. So I hope that a little Nativity scene I created using Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set will inspire you!

Nativity Scene #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Working on the design for this project, I thought that a see through window would be a perfect extra touch to the handmade card since it would decorate both inside and outside parts. So to start, I prepared a regular A2 size card base, die cut a circle on the card front using Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts, closed the card and traced the circle shape on the inside part of the card to use as a guide. Next I die cut a larger circle from a masking paper using again the same Zig Zag Stitched Circles set and divided it into two parts with a curve SugarCut from Card Front Element Builder so that I could ink the sky and the ground parts inside the circle. I applied both positive and negative parts of the mask inside the card following the pencil lines, lifted up the bottom part of the circle, erased pencil lines and inked it with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks and an ink blending tool. I placed the mask back and work on the top portion of the circle blending Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jeans and Black Soot colors.

While the background was drying, I stamped the Jesus baby and the animals on Strathmore Bristol paper with a waterproof black ink and colored them using water based markers and a small water brush from Pentel.

These are all the exact colors used:
TOMBOW MARKERS: n.N15, n.090, n.723, n.873, n.879, n.947, n.977, n.991.
ZIG CKLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.36 Light Blue, n.42 Turquoise Green, n.61 Light Brown, n.63 Ochre, n.67 Mustard, n.71 Flesh Colour, n.72 Beige, n.91 Light Gray, n.96 Mid Gray.

I fussy cut all the colored elements and painted the cut edges with a black brush tip marker. Assembling the whole project, I heat embossed with a white embossing paste the sentiment and the star from Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set on a night sky, popped the Jesus baby inside the circle and the animals on the card front.

Last but not least I created a quick matching envelope by simply stamping the angel and the star from Come Let Us Adore Him set with the same black ink I used before.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up September Challenge #47

Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Party Balloon stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
Today I’ve popped in with an inspiration project made for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up challenge. 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!!!

Creating this card, I played with a fun Party Balloon die. Actually this little die was meant to be used with the coordinating stamp set, but it’s so perfect as a stand alone element. Love such versatile products plus it has a great price point. I used an inexpensive watercolor paper and die cut the balloon several times. Next I used Tombow markers and the color palette from the inspiration photo and made a super easy watercoloring.

Here’re all the exact markers used here: n.090, n.243, n.425, n.493, n.673, n.723, n.725, n.873, n.912.

Working on the layout, I made more die cutting using Card Front Element Builder set, SugarCut You and Sugar & Spice pattern paper. I stacked together a few layers of the word “you” for an extra finish touch before adhering it to the card front and finally heat embossed the sentiment from Sweet Sentiments – You stamp set. Assembling everything together, I added a bit of dimension using a foam tape.
