I started working on a Bristol Paper and stamped with a waterproof ink both cute cactus plants in coffee cups from Cuppa Cactus set since my intention was coloring them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Please, scroll down towards the bottom of this post to see all the exact colors I used!

I'm a Little Prickly Before My Coffee #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cuppa Cacti stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookOnce the colored images were dry, I die-cut them with the coordinating dies! At this point I also die-cut the shaker part on a slightly smaller panel than my A2 size card base and proceeded with assembling.

I simply stamped with the same black ink I used before the adorable sentiment and added a little colorful banner towards the left topside. To make enough place for the coffee beans I put three layers of a foam tape between the card base and my window piece and finally popped up the cactus plants. As final touch, I applied a generous coat of a shimmer pen to the colored images.

Craftin Desert Divas – June Release Sneak Peek – Dino Dig


Hello and welcome!

Today I’m sharing a sneak peek project showcasing you the fantastic DINO DIG stamp set from the new Crafting Desert Divas June release! This set will be available for purchase on Friday June, 23 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop!

You're How Old #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Dino Dig stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

If you, like me, a big fan of cute stamps and fun sentiments, this stamp set will steal your heart for sure!!! So read all the way down to the bottom of this post to learn how to put together this super fun and cute tunnel card! All you need to have for this project is a set of nesting dies and CDD Fancy Frame die set is really perfect in this case!

You're How Old #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Dino Dig stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I started with an A2 size card base that measures 5½” by 4¼” and two other A2 size rectangles cut out from the same white cardstock. First of all, I die-cutted a rectangle in the middle of the front panel on my card base using the smallest frame die from Fancy Frame set. Then I used the medium and the large scalloped dies to achieve the medium and the large frames from the left rectangle pieces! Don’t throw away the positive parts of the die-cuts since you can use them for the other projects!!! At this point I also die-cut 3 times the border hill part necessary to build our scene using  Garden Border Dies. Here’s what you should end up with!

You're How Old #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Dino Dig stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The next step was adding color to the visible parts of our tunnel card! I simply inkblended some green shades of Distress Oxide inks toward the bottom of my project so that they look like grass hills and then above a blue shade of the same Oxide ink that should look like the sky portion. Once finished inkblending, I spritzed a few drops of water on top of all the elements and made happen the oxide reaction that gave me an interesting splotchy background! Remember to add color to the inside part of you card as well since it will be visible though the smallest die-cut window!

You're How Old #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Dino Dig stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Assembling the tunnel card, I glued the first border die right on top of the card base a little bit above the frame window. The second border die ended up on the back side of the medium frame as well as the third one was glued on the back side of the largest frame!  Offsetting slightly the border dies will dive some dimension to your scene! Finally I stacked the frames together putting each of them on a foam tape.

You're How Old #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Dino Dig stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I stamped with a waterproof ink, watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut a few cutie dinos along with some small accessories that come with new Dino Dig stamp set and simply arranged them on every layer of my tunnel card! The fun birthday sentiment from the same Dino Dig set and a few matching sequins added a finish touch!

That all for today! Hope you like this tunnel card! 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!

Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #49 – Sketch Challenge

ipcsidebarbadge

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #49 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

Wanted For Celebrating Another Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Rides West stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The current challenge is a sketch one! I love sketch challenges since it gives you a great idea about the card layout, but leaves you the opportunity to add any contest you like! And since I’ve got my hands on the new just released Newton Rides West stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs, of course, I needed to have more play time with the cute kitty stamps!

I’m leaving you below a sketch graphic created for this challenge by Newton’s Nook Design’s and hope it will inspire you to play along! Make a project based on this sketch and paired with at least one Newton’s Nook Designs brand stamp or die and upload it here for a chance to win a store credit at Newton’s Nook Designs online shop. You can create a card, a tag, a scrapbook page, a treat bag or any other projects related to the papercrafting.

Creating this card, I started working first on the watercolor background! I used a few green shades of Distress inks and added a basic color to the watercolor cardstock. Once it was heat set, I repeatedly made wet on wet stamping on top with the same Distress inks using cactus image from Newton Rides West set creating my own pattern. It’s little bit messy, but very fun technique and I just like the result!!!

My second layer is made out of vellum since I didn’t want to hide the beautiful watercolor background. I glued on top a few arrows die-cut with Points & Plumes die set out of the watercolor cardstock that was previously colored with Distress inks as well.

My third and final layer is a Polaroid frame where I put inside the “wanted” mischief in the adorable cowboy hat. The second part of the sentiment “for celebrating another birthday!” was stamped inside the card base!

Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #48 – Use Stripes

ipcsidebarbadge

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #48 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

Ciao #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The current challenge is “Use Stripes”! I’m leaving you below a beautiful inspiration graphic created for this challenge by Newton’s Nook Design’s and hope it will inspire you to play along! Just make a project including some stripes on it and paired with at least one Newton’s Nook Designs brand stamp or die and upload it here for a chance to win a store credit at Newton’s Nook Designs online shop. You can create a card, a tag, a scrapbook page, a treat bag or any other projects related to the papercrafting.

My today’s choice was Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set. I just can’t stop using this FANTASTIC set since it reminds me so much the place where I live and more this time the cute mischief has his big adventure right in Rome!

Ciao #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I played around the stripe theme in a few different ways starting by creating a striped heart background that looks exactly like the Italian flag! I used Darling Hearts die set making a mask out of a masking paper and ink blended Distress inks through the negative part of the mask applied to the background piece. Once removed, I replaced it with the positive part of the die-cut and added a very small amount of gray ink around the white part of the heart to give it a right shape and finished with some water droplets creating a splotchy look for more interest.

The cute kitty from Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set and Colosseum were stamped on a Bristol paper, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die-cut with the coordinating dies. The sentiment was heat embossed on a STRIPE of a black cardstock with a white embossing powder. And finally assembling all the element together, I added a striped pattern paper I had in my stash.

Relax #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Summer Vacation stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The summer theme made me immediately think about the adorable and super fun Newton’s Summer Vacation stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs. And so after a tough year full of naps the cute mischief made his plans for relaxing summer vacation! LOL!!!

Relax #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Summer Vacation stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stated this card by preparing a light gray card base and made my own pattern paper to go on top, repeatedly stamping the word “summer” from Simply Seasonal set with the matching gray ink. A lovely schedule board useful to sign up all the intense vacation plans was die-cut from Studio Katia Stitched Notebook die set. At this point I also stamped with a waterproof ink a few adorable images from Newton’s Summer Vacation stamp set, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut right against the stamp edge, hiding any imperfection from trimming with a black marker.

The color combo on this card was totally inspired by the cheerful and bright Summer Fusion sequins mix from Studio Katia that made a purr-fect finish touch along with a little bit of shimmer and glossy accents.
