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.

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.

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

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!!!

Let’s spread no more words since this post is long and start with the first card featuring so adorable Halloween Trio stamp set.

Trick Or Treat #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Halloween Trio stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stated with the coordinating Halloween trio dies and die cut the cute critters along with the word sentiment and a few bats from Neenah Solar white paper. I aligned the negative part of the cuts in the stamping positioning tool and stamped the Halloween Trio with Memento black ink. Next I spent some time coloring the critters and the bats with copic markers.

In case you’re curious, here’s the complete list of all the copic markers I used here: YR02-YR04-YR07-YR07-YR18-E08; Y32-YR21-YR24-YR27; YR30-YR31; E30-E31-E33-E35; E41-E42-E43; C00-C1-C3; YG21-YG95; BG70; W00-W1;T1-T7; R30; 100

Trick Or Treat #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Halloween Trio stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Assembling all the elements, I created a night scene using Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks and Sunscape stencil for the rays of light, popped the cute critters on a foam tape and finished with a few matching sequins.

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

Next comes Candy Corn stamp set and a night watercolor scene. To start, I die cut a bunch of candy corns using the coordinating Candy Corn die set (so handful for multiple die cutting), stamped all the images with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a Bristol paper from Strathmore and colored all the elements with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors I used here: n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.50 Yellow – n.52 Bright Yellow – n.70 Orange – n.71 Flesh Colour – n.67 Mustard – n.91 Light Gray

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

For the background I used Framework die, a watercolor paper and regular watercolors. Once dried, I embossed some stars throughout Starfield stencil with a plain white embossing paste and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Candy Corn set with a white embossing powder. Once all the elements were arranged on the card base, I decided to add a cute owl from Boo Hoo set on top of the candy corns stack.

Last, but not least we have Boo Hoo stamp set with a super fun and cute ghosts. Using the coordinating Boo Hoo Die Set and Neenah Solar White paper, I die cut a few ghost shapes and speech bubbles.

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

Then I stamped the matching stamps with Memento black ink and colored the images with copic markers.

These are the exact copic markers I used here: T1; Y0000-Y00; RV0000-RV00; 0 (colorless blender).

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

For the background I prepared a scalloped frame using NND Frames & Flags Die Set with a circle window in the center where I added a sort of yellow Moon inking the paper with Fossilized Umber Distress Oxide ink and added on top some bats through just released yesterday Flying Bats stencil.

Inspired by the cutest bunny searching for some candies in the pumpkin, I decided to create a circle shaker card filled with sweet treats. To start, I die cut the bunny shape along with a whole bunch of sweets using  the coordinating Hoppy Halloween dies from Strathmore Bristol paper and then stamped the images from Hoppy Halloween stamp set with a waterproof black ink using a stamping positioning tool and the negative part of the die cuts. Next I took a water brush and colored all the images with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers.

As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors I used here: n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.52 Bright Yellow – n.70 Orange – n.26 Light Pink – n.25 Pink – n. 41 Light Green – n.80 Violet – n.81 Purple – n.71 Flesh Colour – n.61 Light Brown – n.67 Mustard

For the card base, I die cut twice a scalloped circle from a white cardstock and glued together the top part. Next I die cut another circle of the same dimension from a bright purple cardstock with a window inside and used it to create a shaker part that was filled with the small colored stamps from Hoppy Halloween stamp set, a few clear sequins and some matching beads. The sentiment was simply heat embossed with a white embossing powder on a piece of a black cardstock and popped on top of the card base with a foam tape along with the cute bunny.
