Happy Easter Card (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Happy Easter #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

I’ve popped in with a quick post today just to share a sweet Easter scene card I’ve created with stamps from Purple Onion Designs.

Happy Easter #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

I mixed and matched a lot of wonderful stamps working on this project. To start, I stamped all the images on Strathmore Bristol paper using VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. Next I colored all the elements using Tombow markers and finally fussy cut with small sharp scissors.

Here’re all the colors used: TOMBOW markers n.N65, n.055, n.126, n.133, n.173, n.195, n.452, n.703, n.761, n.947, n.985.

And these are all the stamps used for the spring scene: Willa Walking Bunny, Easter Eggs, Floral End Notes, Beach Grass #2 Large, Clouds, Tree Line Horizon. I prepared a regular A2 size card base and then adhered all the colored elements on top, popping some of them on a foam tape for a bit of interest and dimension. The sentiment from Sweet Occasions Sentiment Set was heat embossed on a piece of bright pink paper colored with the same shade of Tombow marker I used on the main images for a perfect match.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Find Your Happy Place #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Birdhouse stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There would be no purr-fect release without new stamps with the sweet kitty Newton! Right?! So the last day of the NND April reveal has reserved us a super adorable Newton’s Birdhouse stamp set that as always comes with the coordinating dies!

Working with Newton’s Birdhouse stamp and die sets, as always I started with die cutting and then stamping using Strathmore Bristol paper and waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink as my intention was to use watercolor markers.

And here’re the complete list of all TOMBOW markers I used on this project: n.025, n.026, n.055, n.098, n.126, n.133, n.493 n.515, n.755, n.800, n.899, n.947, n.992, n.993.

A regular A2 size card base was made from a kraft cardstock and embellished with a tone on tone pattern applied through Hardwood stencil with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I also die cut for the layout a stitched rectangle from vellum using Frames & Flags Die Set along with a grass portion made from Land Borders Die Set and inked with Twisted Citron Distress ink. Finally assembling all the elements, I added a stamped sentiment on a cloud shaped  Speech Bubble that matches purr-fectly the slipping kitty.

Don’t be deceived by the small size of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day stamp sets! You can easily make a full A2 size card with them!

Happy Mother's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mother's Day stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on Mother’s Day project, I repeatedly stamp the sentiment with flowers on the scalloped rectangle die cut from Frames & Flags Die Set, creating a pattern that should look like some clothes. Then I filled the gaps with small leaves and flowers from Woodland Spring and Deer Friend stamp sets and colored everything with copic markers without making any shading.

Here are all the colors used: COPIC T1, RV02, RV04, YG01, Y17, Bg11.

I wanted to place the floral pattern on a colorful card base, but couldn’t find a perfect shade of pink in my stash. So I ink a plain white bard base with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and popped the scalloped rectangle on top with a foam tape.

The Father’s Day card turned out super simple and easy! First, I stamped and quickly colored the sentiment using copic markers: E31-E35; B21-B24-B26; BG10-BG-23.

Happy Father's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Father's Day stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since I wanted to add more color to a 4 Bar card base, I inked it with Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sets Distress inks and then again applying on top Tropical Fish stencil.

Finally I prepared another matching layer using Vintage Photo Distress ink and new Hardwood stencil before assembling all the elements and adding a few clear droplets.

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Moo


Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs April release!

All the new April products will be available for purchase on Friday, April 12th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

You're MOO-velous! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Moo stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today we are continuing to add more absolutely adorable farm animals to a new collection and it’s time for the cutest cows from Moo stamp set that as always comes with the coordinating dies!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Moo stamp set away to a lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!


My first card turned out as a cute farm scene and all the images I used here come from only one new Moo set. To start I chose Neenah Solar White paper and Hybrid Black ink from MFT since it’s copic friendly. I die cut the cow and a few accessories for my scene using Moo Die Set and stamped the coordinating outline images helping myself with a stamping positioning tool. Next I colored everything with copic markers.

Here’re the complete list of all the copic colors used: cow YR21-YR24-YR27 plus R02-R11 and E49; W00-W2-W3; R24-R27-R39; Y11-Y15-Y21-Y26; BG11.

You're MOO-velous! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Moo stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The hills were die cut from Land Borders Die Set and inked with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. The sky portion was colored with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink and finally the fence die cut from Fence Border Die was shaded with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink. Before assembling all the elements, I added a few puffy clouds through Cloudy Sky stencil using a white embossing paste from Ranger.

You're MOO-velous! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Moo stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since all the new farm goodies released this week go so well together, I just cannot escape to mix and match them on my second card!

It's Your Birthday! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with the same steps that I describe for the previous card, except of that I switched to Strathmore Bristol paper and Tombow markers.

Here’re all the exact colors of TOMBOW markers I used on this project: n.N15, n.N79, n.055, n.090, n.133, n.723 n.772, n.850, n.946, n.947, n.977, n.993.

The background was formed from two pieces of green and light blue cardstock both framed with Frames Squared Die Set. Finally the Fence Border Die cut out from a kraft cardstock was embellished through Hardwood stencil.

Customized Pattern Paper and SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #54

Sending Hugs #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cuddly Cacti stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’ve popped in for a quick post because today is my turn to enter into the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up challenge and I prepared this simple and cute card and my own pattern paper!

In case you want to play along, as well, here’s how you can do that: 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!!!

The cute Cuddly Cacti (NB: Cuddly Cacti stamp set was designed by SugarPea Designs for Stamptember Event and is no longer available for purchase) were stamped on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink, colored with Tombow markers and then fussy cut leaving a little white edge around.

As always I’m leaving all the exact colors I used here: TOMBOW n.N79, n.055, n.062, n.090, n.098, n.126, n.133, n.873, n.885, n.993.

Working on the card base, I added a fun matching edge to a rectangle partially die cutting it from a white cardstock with Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles. Next I was searching for something to embellish the bottom part of the card that had to go perfectly with a cacti theme and still to be non distractive as I wanted to keep the main focus on the colored images. And so I decided to stretch more the small stamps that come with Cuddly Cacti set and took a light gray cardstock plus the matching light gray ink. I filled the whole area by repeatedly stamping the small flower and creating my own pattern paper. Super easy! Right!?

Hope you like this cute and simple card! Now it’s your turn to link up your creations for a chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate from SugarPea Designs! Can’t wait to see what you create!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!
