**Abstract:** We consider differential operators of type

$$ Au(x) = u(x) + (-1)^{t_1}\frac{\partial ^{2t_1} u(x)}{\partial x_1^{2t_1}}+ (-1)^{t_2}\frac{\partial ^{2t_2} u(x)}{\partial x_2^{2t_2}}, \quad x=(x_1,x_2)\in \R ^2 , $$

and Sierpinski carpets $\Gamma\subset \R ^2$.

The aim of the paper is to investigate spectral properties of the fractal differential operator $ A^{-1}\, \circ \, tr ^{\Gamma} $ acting in the anisotropic Sobolev space $W^{(t_1,t_2)}_2(\R ^2)$ where $tr ^{\Gamma}$ is closely related to the trace operator $tr_{\Gamma}$
