Feeling Slothy Need Coffee #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Slothy Coffee stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

New just released Slothy Coffee stamp set was so perfect to play with. I die cut using the coordinating Slothy Coffee Die Set the cute sloth in the coffee cup from Strathmore Bristol paper, aligned the negative part of the die cut into a stamping positioning tool and stamped the image with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. The fall twist to the card gave some pumpkins from Harvest Tails and a few falling leaves from Newton’s Cornucopia stamp and die sets. All the stamped elements were colored with Tombow and Zig markers which exact list I’m leaving here:

TOMBOW MARKERS: n.090, n.126, n.885, n.912, n.946, n.990, n.991, n.992.
ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.41 Light Green, n.50 Yellow, n.52 Bright Yellow, n.70 Orange, n.71 Flesh Colour.

The background was made from a watercolor paper trimmed slightly smaller than an A2 size card base. I added some water washes with regular watercolors using the same color range and I used previously on the stamps. Finally the sentiment from the same Slothy Coffee set was simply stamped on the watercolor panel and all the elements were assembled with a bit of dimension.

Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Thankful Thoughts stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

On my project I decided to build a stamped background using one of the sentiments from Thankful Thoughts set. To start, I masked a rectangle directly on the card front and repeatedly stamped the sentiment using different shades of orange inks for an ombré effect. Next I die cut and stamped a cute squirrel and a few small elements using new just released Harvest TailsNewton’s Thanksgiving stamp and die sets and finally colored all the elements with copic markers and assembled everything with a bit of dimension.

As always, I’m leaving you the complete list of all the copic markers used here: E30-E31-E35; squirrel Y21-YR23-YR27-E99; YG01-YG95; YR00-YR04; Y13-Y15-Y17.

Once die cut the sloth with the coordinating Slothy Coffee Die Set from Strathmore Bristol paper and stamped the coordinating image from Slothy Coffee stamp set with a VersaFine Onyx Black ink, I colored it with a water based markers. At this point I also added a few cups to my design using Cuppa Cactus stamp set and Cuppa Cactus Die sets. Next I die cut a stitched frame using Frames & Flags die set and blended some yellowy-orange tones of Distress inks through Sunscape stencil. Finally, before assembling everything together, I simply stamped the sentiment from the same Slothy Coffee  stamp set.

Finally it’s turn of Tea-Rex stamp and die sets with a super cute dino.

Tea-Rex #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Tea-Rex stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Thinking about the design of this project, I thought it would be fun to recreate a tea bag. I stated with a new Tree Rings stencil and once the embossing paste was dry, I die cut a tag from Tag Times 2 Die Set in the center of the card front. I also use a small top element for my tag from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set and finally gathered the tag and the label with a heat embossed sentiment using a baker twine. Next I die cut using the coordinating dies, stamped and colored a Tea-Rex from Tea-Rex stamp set along with a few small cups from Newton Loves Coffee and Coffee & Wine stamp sets. Please note that these sets don’t have the coordinating dies, but the stamps can be easily fussy cut with a sharp pair of scissors. Assembling this projects I played with different layers and gave some dimension using double or three layers of a foam tape.

Today I’m so happy to introduce you two new and absolutely adorable Bewitched and Darling Dragons stamp sets filled with lots of incredibly cute images. Both sets come with the coordinating Bewitched and Darling Dragons SugarCuts. Plus there’s an extra amazing new die set called Hocus Pocus.


My first card features Darling Dragons stamp set and Darling Dragons SugarCut.

Hocus Pocus #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Darling Dragons stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

I started with Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx black ink and Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. Once die cut and stamped some images from Darling Dragons sets, I made a super simple watercoloring.

In case you’re interested, here’s the complete list of all Zig markers I used on this card: n.36 Light Blue – n.41 Light Green – n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.52 Bright Yellow – n.83 Lilac – n.61 Light Brown.

Next I took a piece of the watercolor cardstock from Tim Holtz, masked a triangle shape with a sticky tape and added Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink plus a few blue shades: Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon. I framed the inked piece using a scalloped die from Card Front Element Builder and popped it on an A2 size white card base. Finally I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Darling Dragons stamp set, arranged all the stamps and adhered them with a bit of dimension.

Next comes super adorable Bewitched stamp set and the coordinating Bewitched SugarCuts. Working on this project I switched to Neenah Solar White paper and Memento Tuxedo Black ink since my intention was to color the images with copic markers.

Here’re all the colors used here: skin E50-E51-E53-E55-R20; hair Y32-YR21-YR24-YR27; RV21-RV23-RV25-RV29; B21-B24-B26; YG93-YG95-YG97; BG11-BG23; YR12-YR16; C00-C1-C3; E30-E33; R00-R24-R29.

You're A Wicked Good Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bewitched stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

For the card front I used the same scalloped frame from Card Front Element Builder and Distress cardstock from Tim Holtz along with a light yellow and blue inks and an ink blending tool. Before stamping the sentiment from Bewitched stamp set, I flicked a few water droplets on the background and finally assemble everything with a bit of dimension and shimmer.
