Happy Birthday Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - You're My Type stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today and to share with you a cheerful and bright friend birthday card!

I’m playing with two wonderful and one of my favorites You’re My Type and Meadow Motifs stamp sets plus some watercolor markers.

Happy Birthday Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - You're My Type stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

To start, I die cut the typewriter and a few floral branches and leaves using the coordinating You’re My Type SugarCut and Meadow Motifs SugarCut. I chose to work on Strathmore Bristol paper since it makes the blending with watercolor markers very easy. Next I stamped the outline images from You’re My Type and Meadow Motifs stamp sets with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. Finally I colored all the stamped elements with Tombow markers.

In case you’re wondering, here’s the complete list of all the colors used on this project: TOMBOW n.N79, n.133, n.177, n.835, n.845, n.847.

A regular A2 size card base was prepared from Neenah Solar White paper and embellished with some lovely and kind words from Everyday Sentiments stamp set. I used a very light gray dye ink this time both for stamping and flicking some tiny water droplets on top. Before popping the colored stamps on a foam tape, I added a sentiment from You’re My Type stamp set with the same black ink used previously for stamping. A few clear sparkling sequins added a final touch to this colorful card.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this birthday friend card and give it a try! As always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

The card base was embellished through new wonderful Hibiscus stencil set. I used the flower layer with Squeezed Lemonade and Spun Sugar Distress inks while the leaves from the second layer were added with Twisted Citron color. Finally I popped the colored square that was simply trimmed following the edge lines, on a foam tape and embellished the card with a few matching sequins.

Working on beautiful flowers from Tropical Fringe stamp set, I switched to a cold pressed watercolor paper from Arches. I stamped the whole image with VersaFine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it with a fine cleat embossing powder to make the stamp lines more black and the watercoloring process more easy.

Aloha Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Tropical Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

In terms of colors my choice was on Tropical Fiesta Watercolor Brush markers from Altenew. Once dried, I framed the Tropical Fringe with Frames Squared Die Set.

The squared card base was embellished through another new Pineapple stencil set. I wanted to keep the main focus on the colored Tropical Fringe and so I used Antique Linen Distress ink on both layers of the stencil with a light yellow touch of Squeezed Lemonade on the pineapples and a bit of Twisted Citron for the leaves. Finally I simply popped the scalloped frame on foam tape and embellished the card with a few matching sequins.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ 6 Year Celebration and Giveaway – Day 2


Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs 6 Year Celebration release!

All the new July products will be available for purchase on Friday, July 19th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Catch The Purr-fect Wave #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Perfect Wave stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There would be no purr-rect release without the cutest mischievous kitty! Right?! LOL!!! Today all the Design Team is showcasing two absolutely adorable Newton’s Perfect Wave and Scuba Newton stamp sets. Both new sets come with the coordinating dies!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away a $20 store credit to their store to a lucky winners every day during the release week so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

For my stop on this hop I created two sweet summer scenes! Working on both cards, I started with the coordinating dies. I ran them through my die cutting machine using Strathmore Bristol paper. I saved the negative parts of the dies and used them into MISTI stamping positioning tool for a perfect alignment while I was stamping the images from Newton’s Perfect Wave and Scuba Newton stamp sets with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof.

Next I colored all the stamped images with Tombow markers.

And here’s the complete list of all the colors used on the first card featuring Newton’s Perfect Wave stamp set: TOMBOW n.N75, n.055, n.062, n.133, n.195, n.452, n.493, n.743, n.933, n.969, n.977, n.985.

Catch The Purr-fect Wave #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Perfect Wave stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The first card turned out quite clean and simple. I used just released yesterday Clouds and Waves & Splashes stencils with Over The Moon and Clear Skies dye inks from Simon Hurley to add color directly to the regular A2 size card base. At this point I also added a simply stamped sentiment from the same Newton’s Perfect Wave stamp set. Arranging the kitty on the card front, I added more waves die cutting them with Sea Borders Die Set and popping on a foam tape for some dimension and interest.

Deepest Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Scuba Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The stamps from Scuba Newton set were colored with Tombow markers as well. I used the following markers: n.N79, n.025, n.055, n.133, n.195, n.373, n.476, n.676, n.761, n.847, n.905, n.990, n.933, n.977, n.993.

The card front is made on the watercolor cardstock from Tim Holtz since it works well with Distress inks. I used the hill side from just release yesterday Hills & Grass stencil to create both sand and waves. My color choice was on Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Antique Linen colors. Finally I added the sentiment from the same Scuba Newton stamp set and popped all the colored elements on a foam tape.

Interactive Slider Birthday Card Plus Video (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

It's Your Birthday Right Meow #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Birthday Balloons stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a fun tutorial how to put up together an interactive slider card!

I’m playing with adorable Newton’s Birthday Balloons stamp and the coordinating Newton’s Birthday Balloons Die sets. Curios? So, please, watch the video below!

To start, I die cut from Strathmore Bristol paper and stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink the cute kitty, three clouds and a little heart using Newton’s Birthday Balloons stamp and die sets. For the background I switched to Tim Holtz Watercolor cardstock and one of my favorites combos from Distress line: Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch. The amazing Cloudy Sky stencil is from Newton’s Nook Designs brand as well. I used Ranger’s Texture Opaque Matte Paste and my heat gun for the puffy clouds on the background. Finally the interactive mechanism was brought to live with MFT Spin & Slide Disc and two slightly larger circles die cut from a plain white cardstock.

The mischievous kitty was watercolored with Tombow markers. I used for the blending both a small watercolor brush from Pentel filled with plain water and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear shimmer pen for some details.

And here’s the complete list of all the colors used: TOMBOW N79, 025, 665, 703, 772, 873, 899, 905, 933, 977, 992.

For my stop on today’s hop, I came out with a cute under the sea scene! To start, I dei cut a mermaid plus a few small images from Strathmore Bristol paper using SugarCut Mermaid Kisses. Next I stamped the coordinating images from Mermaid Kisses stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and proceeded with coloring.

I used Tombow markers today paired with a small water brush from Pentel: n.055, n.195, n.665, n.723, n.905, n.912, n.925, n.933, n.942, n.946.

Instead of using Scale Cover Plate as a die, I placed a squishy rubber mat under the paper into the “sandwich” for the die cutting machine, ran it through and finished with an embossed pattern for the background. I took a small rectangle die from Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles Die Set and made an extended window using a partial die cutting technique. I also prepared on a piece of a watercolor cardstock a splotchy background by smooching Distress inks with a piece of a clear plastic. In terms of colors, I applied Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio shades. Completing the watercolor background, I heat embossed some fish schools and bubbles with a white embossing powder. Finally I started assembling all the elements together by popping them on a foam tape for a dimensional look. I finished this card with a heat embossed sentiment from the same Mermaid Kisses stamp set.
