Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog!!! Today I came up with a cute birthday card featuring so adorable Love Machine stamp and die sets.

Gear Up #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Machine stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

To start, I die cut two sweet robots and tiny bows from Neenah Solar White paper using Love Machine SugarCut. Next I stamped the coordinating images from Love Machine stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink since it’s copic friendly. I save and used the negative parts of the dies into the MISTI stamping positioning tool for a perfect alignment. Finally I colored all the images with copic markers.

In case you’re interested, here’re all the exact colors of copic markers used on the card: T0-T1-T3-T5; RV0000-RV00-RV02-RV04-RV10; YG00-YG01-YG13; Y0000-Y11-Y13-Y15-Y17 plus YR15; BG10-BG23.

The fun colorful and textured brick pattern used on the background was created through English Bond Brick Wall Stencil. I mixed a plain white embossing paste with Spiced Marmalade Distress and Picked Raspberry Distress inks using a palette knife on a sleek, non sticky surface. I tapped the stencil to a piece of a white cardstock, applied the orange colorful paste towards the bottom part of the rectangle and the pink tone from the top part, mixing both colors in the center for a gradient effect. Next I carefully lift up the stencil and let the piece air dry well. Meanwhile I heat embossed the matching sentiment from the same Love Machine stamp set I used before and then assembled all the elements together with a bit of dimension. As a final touch I put a generous coat of a clear shimmer pen on top of the colored robots.

That’s all for today! Hope this simple birthday card will inspire you! As always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Hugs,
Tatiana

I mixed and matched a lot of wonderful stamps working on this project.

Next I built my background by stamping Tree Line HorizonBlooms and Beach Grass #2 Large inside the rectangle that was framed with a dotted die from SugarPea Designs Card Front Element Builder II set. I colored all the elements with water based markers making the blending with a small water brush from Pentel.

On my stop of this hop I’m sharing two spring cards. The first one is a watercolor project featuring beautiful flowers. To start, I proceed with heat embossing. I stamped wonderful Easter Lily with VersaMark clear sticky ink, sprinkled with a white embossing powder and zapped with my heat gun.

I die cut the image using the coordinating Easter Lily Die Set and proceed with watercoloring using regular watercolors I have in my stash.

The background was inked through Gingham stencil with Pumice Stone Distress ink and the sentiment from the same Easter Lily stamp set was simply stamped in the center of the card front. I also die cut an open white frame using Framework Die Set and started assembling all the elements with a bit of dimension.

As a final touch I added a few Nuvo Drops in Gloss White, Antique Rose, Rhubarb Crumble colors.

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

My second card is very simple with some bright and fresh spring colors! It was made using ONLY Hello Spring stamp set. To start, I prepared a round card base and cut away the curved branches from the top part of the stamp with my scarp small scissors so that I could stamp them a bit higher above the main image and then once again on the bottom part of the circle. I used a copic friendly Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping and colored the image with copic markers.

As always, I’m leaving the complete list of all the colors used on this card: T0-T1-T3; YR00-YR02-YR04; Y00-Y11-Y15; BG10-BG11-BG23-BG32; RV00-RV02-RV04-RV13-RV14; R20-R21-R22-R24; YG00-YG01-YG03 plus G07; V01-V04.

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

For the card base I die cut a slightly larger scalloped circle using a flower patterned paper, adhered the colored circle on top and finishes with a tiny bow and a few matching sequins.

Since we are taking about rain boots, I believed that watercolor would match this stamp set in a perfect way. So I started with Strathmore Bristol paper and VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I made the die cutting first using Newton’s Rain Boots Die Set and them stamped the coordinating images from Newton’s Rain Boots stamp set. As always I help myself with the negative parts of the dies for a perfect alignment while I was making the stamping in my MISTI tool. Next I proceeds with coloring using my water based markers and a small water brush from Pentel.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact markers used on this project: TOMBOW 055, 133, 173, 249, 636, 665, 725, 873, 933, 946, 977.

Cute Boots Make Everything Better #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Rain Boots stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Creating the background scene I added a tone on tone Raindrops to the sky portion through new just released on Monday stencil. The grass was inked through Hills & Grass border stencil. I used respectively Peacock Feather Distress Oxide and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks with the small blending brushes. The sentiment was simply stamped on the background with the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink I used before. Assembling the card, I popped all the elements on foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few crystal sparkling sequins.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ February Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Bitty Bibs, Baby Bibs and Sky Scene Builder


Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook February release! I’m so happy you’ve joined me today!

All the new February products will be available for purchase on Friday, February 21th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Congratulations #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bitty Bibs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Cuteness overloads today with super sweet Bitty Bibs stamp set and the coordinating Baby Bibs Die that has a few extra pretty details. Plus there’s a new amazing stand along Sky Scene Builder Die framed with stylish stitched details.

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


Today I put up together two cute projects. The first one is a baby girl card that features Bitty Bibs stamp set and the coordinating Baby Bibs Die. I just love the additional scalloped layer that comes with Baby Bibs Die Set. To start, I die cut some Baby Bibs using Neenah Solar White paper for the top layer and a soft pink cardstock from my stash for the scalloped one. I decided to add the bear design from Bitty Bibs stamp set to one bib. As always, I used the negative part of the die into my MISTI stamping tool to help me with the alignment while I was making the stamping. Finally colored the patterned bib with copic markers.

In case you’re wondering, here’re all the exact markers used on this project: COPIC RV0000-RV00-RV04-RV10-RV13; E50-E51-E53-E55.

Congratulations #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bitty Bibs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Before arranging all the elements on a standard A2 size white card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) base I added a sentiment from the same Bitty Bibs stamp set: heat embossing the word “Congratulations” on a piece of a pink cardstock colored with RV13 copic marker for a perfect match and simply stamping the second part of the sentiment directly on the card base. Last but not least, I added a bit more of color by adhering small die cut hearts from Holding Happiness Die Set on every white bib.

Congratulations #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bitty Bibs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The second card along with new Sky Scene Builder Die features just released yesterday Hop Into Spring stamp set. It turned out quite simple and keep the main focus on watercoloring elements.

You're Some-BUNNY Special #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hop Into Spring stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once again I started with the die cutting process. I used Hop Into Spring Die Set and a hot presses watercolor paper plus VersaFine Onyx Black ink for stamping the open bunny image from Hop Into Spring stamp set. Next I water colored the stamp and a very simple background with regular watercolors.

You're Some-BUNNY Special #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hop Into Spring stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Assembling all the elements together, I prepared a light gray A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base, framed the watercolor background with a stitched rectangle from Frames & Flags Die Set and wrapped a twine around the stitched frame. Next I added lovely die cut clouds from new Sky Scene Builder Die to the background along with the colored image and finally popped the whole piece on a foam tape. I finished with a simple heat embossed sentiment from Hop Into Spring stamp set put on a piece of a black cardstock.
