It's Your Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my stop on this hop I created a sweet and colorful birthday card featuring my ever favorite kitty Newton! He is an adorable sweet orange tabby cat and the inspiration for NND name and logo. Today I used a non traditional for a birthday theme Newton’s Christmas Cuddles stamp set that has a few super adorable and versatile images so it was super easy to interpret it in a different way by simply changing the color palette!

I obviously chose NND logo colors and colored the sweet kitty as Newton to give a personal touch to the card! I used my win win combo which consists of Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, Strathmore Bristol paper and a small water brush from Pentel. For the layout I used Frames & Flags die set and added a heat embossed sentiment from Newton’s Birthday Bash set. Finally a kitty paw pattern was added to the background through Pawprint stencil with Distress Oxide ink in Spiced Marmalade color and an ink blending tool!

Stamp Focus – Me Time (ft. Craftin Desert Divas)

Hello and welcome!

I’m stretching more so adorable and versatile Me Time stamp set from the Craftin Desert Divas February Release!!!

#metime #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Me Time Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

This set can be used in so many ways! I know that it’s very appreciated by planners, but it’s awesome for cards, tags and scrapbook layouts as well!

#metime #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Me Time Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

My today’s project use a very limited color palette. I created an ombré ink blended spot in the center of a scalloped frame with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink, an ink blending tool and Hearts Galore stencil. Then I framed it with a simple white open circle from Inside Scalloped Circle Dies. The image from Me Time set as always was stamped with a copic friendly black ink on Neenah Solar White paper, colored with copic markers and then fussy cut leaving a little white border around. Finally I prepared the sentiment banner, heat embossing #metime sentiment with a white embossing powder, and assembled all the elements with a bit of dimension. A few matching sequins and a generous coat of shimmer from Wink Of Stella Clear Brush Glitter Marker finished this card.

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Woof Pack



Hello and welcome to the last day of the Newton’s Nook Designs February Release!

All the new February products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, February 16th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Best Friends Come in All Shapes & Sizes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Woof Pack stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

NND just cannot leave all dog fans disappointed and so after the incredible Company of Cats I’m sooooooo happy to present you a whole bunch of super cute puppies in the new stamp set called Woof Pack that coordinates perfectly with Frames & Flags die set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Woof Pack stamp set away to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

I was super excited to dive into dog breed searching and had so much fun coloring these cuties with my Zig markers. In case you are not a dog expert (like me! LOL!!!) here’s the reference to all the dogs from Woof Pack stamp set:

Left to Right:
Top row: Bulldog, Chihuahua, Boxer, Jack Russell Terrier
Second row: Poodle, Dachshund, Beagle, Basset Hound
Third row: Cocker Spaniel, Yorkshire Terrier, Boston Terrier
Corgi squeezed in between the rows
Bottom row: German Shepherd, Saint Bernard, Pug, Labrador Retriever

Best Friends Come in All Shapes & Sizes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Woof Pack stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since I was working with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, I chose once more Strathmore Bristol paper as blending goes super easy on this type of paper plus a small watercolor brush from Pentel. Once the all the dogs were colored, I used a stitched frame die from Frames & Flags die set to frame all the woof pack and then die cut the same frame once more directly on the front panel of the card base. I aligned the positive die cut piece with the frame window on the card base and adhered the dogs to the inner part of the card so that once opened you have the empty frame on the card front and the colored piece inside. The last step was a little bit more die cutting. I prepared three fish-tale banners with Frames & Flags die set and used one to stamp the sentiment from Woof Pack set while two others were simply colored with the same Zig markers I used before.

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Company of Cats



Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs February Release!

Are you ready for another FANTASTIC release filled with incredible and so various products that will suit any paper crafter?! So let’s start!

All the new February products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, February 16th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

You're the Coolest Cat of All #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Company of Cats stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m sure that all cat people just cannot resist to a super adorable Company of Cats from this new release! I’m head over heals on seeing so many super cute kitties! Plus I loooove big stamp sets: no masking and arranging and over thinking are needed! You’re immediately ready to sit down, relax and just enjoy the coloring process! This stamp doesn’t have dies, but it coordinates perfectly with Frames & Flags die set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Company of Cats stamp set away to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

Today I came with an interactive shaker card! I picked one of the sentiments that come with Company of Cats stamp set and decided to play around it! And so I colored all the stack of cute kitties in gray tones and then made pop the one with a funny face by giving him strong bright colors.

You're the Coolest Cat of All #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Company of Cats stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

When I work with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, my win win combo is Strathmore Bristol paper and a small watercolor brush from Pentel. Once all the furry company was colored, I went a little bit crazy and fussy cut the whole stamp following the stamp lines and then colored the edge with a black marker to hide any imperfection due to the fussy cutting. Assembling the card, I prepared a window frame for the shaker element by aligning and die cutting two frames from Frames & Flags die set. Then, before adhering the die cut frame on a foam tape, I filled the shaker area both with clear iridescent sequins and some colorful beads to remind the colors I used on the kitty. Finally I did more die cutting and put the coordinating sentiment on a fish-tale banner from Frames & Flags die set and finish by embellishing it with an yellowy-orange twine to add another pop of color to this clean card.

Crafting Desert Divas – February Release Replay – Me Time

Hello and welcome!

I’ve popped in with another peek on the February release from Craftin Desert Divas!!!

#metime #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Me Time Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Well, today I stretched once more the super cute Me Time stamp set and made a card for myself! Yes, for myself, to remind that sometimes I need to take a little break and just enjoy a little every day moments!

#metime #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Me Time Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I mixed and matched a few new and old CDD products creating this card. And so I prepared the plaid colorful background using Sorted Shapes 2 Stencil and Distress Oxide inks. I was trying to keep my hand as light as possible while I was doing ink blending. Then I prepared a stitched rectangle from Fancy Frame Die set and transformed into a soft pattern paper by repeatedly stamping the sentiments from Me Time stamp set with a light gray ink. Finally I switched to the cute characters and stamped a bunch with a copic friendly black ink. These images come from Me Time and Pawsome Friends stamp set and coordinates so nicely together. After fussy cutting, I started assembling all the elements popping some of them on a foam tape for a bit of dimension. The heat embossed #metime sentiment and a generous coat of shimmer from Wink Of Stella Clear Brush Glitter Marker finished this card.
