Stay Frosty #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowman Roundabout stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today I’m so happy to introduce you amazing Snowman Roundabout stamp set. Love the gorgeous design of this new set filled with lots beautiful details! As you can guess, Snowman Roundabout stamp set coordinates perfectly with Circle Frames Die and Banner Trio Die sets like other products from the NND Roundabout collection.

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

My card turned out as a clean and simple project! To start, I placed the big illustration from Snowman Roundabout stamp set inside the MISTI tool since I like to ink and stamp the image a couple of times to get a good impression with nice and black outlines. I used Copic X-Press paper and and Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then proceeded with coloring.

As always, I’m sharing the complete list of all COPIC MARKERS used here: R21-R24-R29; RV00-RV02-RV04; RV10-RV13-RV25; Y11-Y13-Y18; YR00-YR04-YR09-YR17; BG10-BG15-BG34; YG01-YG05-YG09; E43; cheeks R00.

Once finished with coloring, I transformed Snowman Roundabout stamp into a Christmas ornament by using Circle Frames Die and Ornamental Shaker Die sets. The whole project was arranged on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper. I glued directly on the card front a light gray patterned paper from Subtle Grey Tones paper pad. The other layers were popped on a foam tape to give a bit of a fun dimensional look. The sentiment from the same Snowman Roundabout stamp set was heat embossed with a fine white embossing powder on grey. As finish touches, I added a few Crystal White Nuvo Drops along with some matching sequins, white gel pen details and a generous coat of a clear shimmer pen.

Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Snowfall Roundabout


Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Winter release! Thanks so much for joining me today!

All the new Holiday products will be available for purchase on Friday, November 20th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Flurry of Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowfall Roundabout stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today I’m so happy to introduce you amazing Snowfall Roundabout stamp set. This set is a great addition to the NND Roundabout collection and as all other stamps from this series it coordinates perfectly with Circle Frames Die and Banner Trio Die sets.

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

On my stop of this hop you’ll find a super simple and easy heat embossed project! To start, I trimmed a piece of a dark blue cardstock (Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy) slightly smaller than an extended A2 size card base. I treated the cardstock with a generous coat of powder from the embossing powder tool to achieve a nice and clean impression and prevent the embossing powder to stick everywhere. Then I sticked Snowfall Roundabout stamp set to the lid of the MISTI tool and inked it well with VersaMark clear sticky ink – my favorite for heat embossing. I sprinkled the cardstock with a fine white embossing powder and then finally zapped it with the preheated heat gun. I managed to get the perfect image immediately, but if you missed some areas and use a stamping positioning tool, you can always go back and heat embossed another time. I cut the heat embossed image in the center and started working on the background.

Flurry of Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowfall Roundabout stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I trimmed a narrow piece from scarps and glued on top the vertical stripes of red and pink cardstocks in this order:

Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red cardstock
Simon Says Stamp Doll Pink cardstock
Bazzill Lollipop cardstock
Bazzill Candy Hearts cardstock
Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red cardstock.

I let the glue air dry and then added the matching heat embossed sentiment from Snowfall Roundabout stamp set, reaping the same exact steps I did before for the snowflakes. Finally the card was assembled on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper and embellished with red and white Nuvo drops.

Newton’s Nook Designs Winter Release and Giveaway – Day 1 – Snowman Greetings


Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Newton’s Nook Winter release! I’m so excited you’ve joined me today and can’t wait to share with you all the fabulous new products!

All the new Holiday products will be available for purchase on Friday, November 20th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Welcome #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowman Greetings stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The first day of the release has reserved us super adorable Snowman Greetings stamp set. I’m totally in LOOOOOVE with this cute snowman image that can incorporate the greeting words inside the sign element! Isn’t it such a fun and clever design? In case you’re interested, you can get the coordinating Snowman Greetings Die set too.

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

On my stop of this hop you’ll find a fully copic colored sweet winter scene. To start, as always, I die cut from Copic X-Press paper the snowman shape using the coordinating Snowman Greetings Die Set and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I saved and used the negative part of the die in the MISTI tool to help me with the alignment while I was making the stamping using Snowman Greetings stamp set and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Before switching to coloring, I die cut a few more elements for my scene: three birches from Forest Scene Builder Die Set, a fence from Fence Die Set and a snow hill from Land Borders Die Set.

And here’s the complete list of all the colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS T0-T1-T3-T5; R30-R32-R35-R37-R39; BG000-BG01-BG02-BG05-BG07; YG01-YG17-YG67; YR12-YR15-YR18; sign E30-E31-E33-E35; E40-E41-E42-E43-E44.

Welcome #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowman Greetings stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The sky background was inked directly on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper. I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks along with my blending brushes to achieve a smooth ombré effect. Next I flicked some super tiny droplets of a pearlescent solution and finished the sky with the falling snow that was added through Petite Snow stencil with a plain white embossing paste. I let the backgroung airdry and then assembled all the elements together with a bit of dimension. As a finish touch I used a clear glitter pen to add a bit of shine to the snowman’s accessories along with Glossy Accents and a white gel pen.

Holiday Card Series 2020 – Merry & Bright (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Merry & Bright #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

Hello and welcome!!!

I’m keeping sharing more examples featuring new absolutely stunning “The Sweetest Little Town” collection of rubber stamps from Purple Onion Designs illustrated by Stacey Yacula!

Today I came up with a slimline card that recreates snowy holiday night and features Flannel (raccoon pulling sled with gifts), Street Light and Single Pine Tree stamps. To start, I stamped all the images on Copic X-Press paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored all the elements with copic markers and then fussy cut with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around.

Wondering about the colors used by me? Here’s the complete list: COPIC MARKERS C00-C0-C1-C2-C3; W00-W0-W1-W2-W3-W4-W5-W6-W7-W8; R30-R32-R35-R37-R39; B21-B24-B26; Y11-Y13-Y18; YG01-YG05; YG21-YG93-YG95; E40-E41-E43-E44.

Merry & Bright #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs

The slimline card base was trimmed from Neenah Solar White paper at 8 1/2″ x 7″ size and then scored in half so that the final measures (when closed) are 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. I inked the night sky with Tumbled GlassSalty OceanBlueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks using the ink blending tools instead of the blending brushes for a juicy and vibrant look. The snowy or starry effect (as you prefer! LOL!!!) was created with plain white gouache. I diluted a small amount with water, deepened inside a small regular brush and flicked tons of splotches all across the card front. The snow hill was die cut from Newton’s Nook Designs Land Borders Die Set and popped along with all other elements on a foam tape.

Finally the “Wishing You A Christmas That Is Merry & Bright” sentiment from new Holiday Messages stamp set was simply added inside the card.
