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!

Crafting Desert Divas – February Release Sneak Peek – Me Time & Pot Of Gold

Hello and welcome!

Today I’m sneak peeking not one, but TWO incredibly cute stamp sets from the Craftin Desert Divas new February Release!!!

All the products from the CDD February release will be available for purchase on Friday February, 9 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop.

Happy Belated Birthday #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Me Time Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Let’s start with the first one so adorable and super versatile called Me Time. Playing with the wonderful images from this set, I transformed them into a Belated Birthday card! Psssss! Don’t tell anyone, but I’m terrible at sending my handmade cards so a few from this category are alway so handy! LOL!!!

Happy Belated Birthday #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Me Time Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

This card turned out clean and simple. After I stamped twice on a copic friendly paper with a copic friendly black ink the same cute girl from Me Time stamp set to achieve extra balloons, colored the stamped images with my copic markers and fussy cut around the edge leaving a little white border around, I embellish the edges of my additional panels with a stitched details die-cutting them with the middle frame from Fancy Frame Die set. The blue background behind the girl was made on a piece of a watercolor paper with Peacock Feathers Oxide ink.

The “Happy Belated Birthday” sentiment from Simply Said stamp set along with some clear drops, a few clouds and a generous coat of Wink Of Stella Clear Brush Glitter Marker finally finished this layout.

And here’s the second card featuring fun and so adorable Pot of Gold stamp set.

You're My Pot Of Gold #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pot Of Gold Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I mixed and matched a few CDD products creating this card and so along with a sweet troll girl and a sentiment from the new Pot of Gold stamp set, I used Inside Scalloped Circle Die set and then Rainbow Die. The all the elements on this card were stamped with the same copic friendly black ink I used on the other card and colored with copic markers. As always you can find all the exact copic markers I used on both projects at the bottom of this post.

Crafting Desert Divas – February Release Sneak Peek – Gnomie

Happy Monday!

What a great start of the week with a new February release from Craftin Desert Divas!!! Ready for tons of cute and just adorable stamps, dies and stencils?

All the products from the CDD February release will be available for purchase on Friday February, 9 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop.

Make A Wish #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gnomie Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

The first stamp set on this peek is soooooo beautiful and dreamy. It’s called Gnomie and it were screaming for me to be put on a night scene since the cute gnome holds a lantern in his hand.

Make A Wish #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gnomie Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

I started building this card making a partial die cutting with the scalloped circle die from Stitched In Circle Die set and applying with an ink blending tool Distress Oxide inks in Fossilized Amber and Faded Jeans colors directly on the card base. I flicked some water splotches on top along with a few droplets of a white gouache and set everything aside to air dry. Meanwhile I stamped on a copic friendly paper with a copic friendly black ink two images from Gnomie stamp set, colored them with my copic markers and fussy cut around the edge leaving a little white border around. Assembling the card I popped the additional panel with the partial die cut window and the colored stamps on a foam tape for a bit of dimension, added a few branches die-cut from Inside Scalloped Circle Die set and colored with copic markers. Finally finished everything with a shimmer details added with Wink Of Stella Clear Brush Glitter Marker and matching clear shimmer sequins.

Sending Birthday Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m totally in love with the stamp set that NND is revealing today. It’s called Sending Hugs and it comes with a super clever and incredible coordinating die set that will allow you to make a cut around the critter’s paws and make them hold any small stamp from Sending Hugs set! What a fun and clever way to personalized you paper crafting projects plus it gives an additional value to the coordinating dies!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Sending Hugs 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 looooove personalized cards very much and so I just couldn’t stop on only one cute critter and placed a gang of furry friends sending happy birthday wishes!!!

Sending Birthday Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started this card die-cutting the adorable furry friends with the coordinating dies from Neenah Solar White cardstock, then aligned the negative part of the die-cuts in the stamping positioning tool and made the stamping with a copic friendly ink. The color media choice was obviously on copic markers. I’m leaving all the exact colors I used on this card at the bottom of this post. I embellished the card base with an ombrè ink blending through just released yesterday Tumbling Hearts Stencil using Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick color. Then I die-cut a frame and a few fish-tail banners from Frames & Flags Die Set. I colored the banners with the same copic markers I used on the stamps for a perfect match and then heat embossed the sentiment from the same Sending Hugs set on top with a white embossing powder. Finally popped up all the element on a foam tape and embellished with some clear sparkling sequins.

Crafting Desert Divas – January Release Replay – Sweetest Birthday


Happy Monday!

It’s release replay time on the Craftin Desert Divas January release and I’m starting with a super adorable Sweetest Birthday stamp set!

Make A Wish #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sweetest Birthday Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

I used the cutest mouse stamp today and started with a copic friendly black ink for stamping, Neehah Solar White paper both for coloring and card front and my favorite Cutter Bee Scissors for fussy cutting. Then I prepared a few elements for the layout die-cutting a rectangle frame from Fancy Frame Dies, a scalloped circle from Stitched In Circle Dies and a few small banners using Mini Banner Die.

Make A Wish #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sweetest Birthday Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

After adding the simple dotted pattern through Sorted Shapes Stencil with a light grey ink for a non distractive background, I assembled all the element on the A2 size card base adding some dimension with a foam tape and finishing with a white heat embossed sentiment on a black cardstock and a few matching extra details added with a White Gelly Pen.
