Light Up The Holiday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Lights stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today just to stay on topic I decided to put up some happy holidays lights on my card and play more with small, but super cute Holiday Lights stamp set. To start, I die cut a bunch of small lights using the coordinating Holiday Lights Die Set on Neenah Solar White paper. When you have to make multiple images the coordinating dies comes so handy and saves a lot of time! Since the light bulbs are such a simple shape, I decided to make no-line coloring with copic markers because it’s fun and allows you also to practice and try different color combos.

Light Up The Holiday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Lights stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stamped the light bulbs from Holiday Lights set with a light dye ink using my MISTI tool and the negative part of the die and finally colored all the lights with copic markers. Working on the background, I inked Gingham pattern with a very light gray ink and stamped in the center the matching sentiment from the same Holiday Lights stamp set. I traced two curved lines with a black marker to use as the light strings. Assembling the card, I popped all the colored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and added a generous coat of a clear shimmer pen.
As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors used on this project: COPIC T1- T3; V0000-V01-V04; RV00-RV10-RV02; RV21-RV23-RV25; R02-R05; Y00-Y11-Y15; G00-G02-G03; B0000-B00-B01-B02; YG00-YG01-YG13; YR00-YR02-YR04; BG10-BG11-BG13; BG0000-BG000-BG10-BG23; B21-B24-BG70.

Winter Is Warmer Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Frosty Folks stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The last day has reserved us more super adorable snowmen in new Frosty Folks stamp set. In case you’re interested there’s the coordinating Frosty Folks Die Set too.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Frosty Folks 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!


And here’s what I came up today! I started with Neenah Solar White paper and Frosty Folks Die Set to get the folks’ shape. Next I stamped the snowmen from Frosty Folks stamp set with MFT Black Hybrid ink and colored the whole image with copic markers.

These are all the colored used on the project: B21-B24; BG10-BG11-BG15; R22-R24-R29; V01-V04-V06; Y00-Y11-Y15; T0-T1-T3-T5; RV10-RV02-RV04; R20; YR000-YR02-YR04.

Winter Is Warmer Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Frosty Folks stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I prepared a regular A2 size card base and noticed that the snowmen image was quite big. So I decided to use it a central element and add a clean and simple background by stamping light gray snowflakes on the background from Frosty Folks and Newton’s Toboggan stamp sets. Then I grounded the folks by adding a die cut snow slope from Land Borders Die Set. Last but not least I stamped the matching sentiment, popped the frosty folks on a foam tape and added a generous coat of clear shimmer on all the accessories.

Frosty & Fabulous #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowmen Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

We are kicking off this week with fabulous Snowmen Party stamp set that enriches the collection of the square card front images to use together with Frames Squared Die Set. One die – so many options!!! What a clever design! In case you’re unfamiliar, you can find all the other sets by clicking right here.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Snowmen Party 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!


I loooooove snowmen so much as I love coloring! That’s why I decided to leave the layout very simple and keep the main focus on the amazing image. I also came up with a creative way of using Snowmen Party stamp set by stamping it twice on Neenah Solar White paper die cut to 5 ½” x 4 ¼” size. The center of the card front was left blank so that I can add the heat embossed sentiment once finished with coloring.

Thanks A Latte Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Thanks A Latte #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pumpkin Latte stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

I’ve popped in with a fall coffee themed card made for the Fall/ Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!!

My today’s choice was on amazing Pumpkin Latte stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs. To start, I die cut a lady holding pumpkin spice latte and a few autumn leaves using the coordinating Pumpkin Latte Die Set. I worked on Neenah solar white paper and stamped the open images from the stamp set with MFT Black Hybrid ink. Finally I proceeded with coloring using copic markers.

In case you’re wondering, here’s the complete list of all the colors used on this project: G40-G43-YG41; R01-R05-R08; Y21-YR23-YR24; E51-E53-E55-E57; BV0000-BV01-BV02.

Thanks A Latte #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pumpkin Latte stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

A kraft card base was embellished with tone on tone stamping and a few white splotches. I used Simon Hurley’s Grrr! Dye ink and a white gouache. I also prepared a tag die cut from vellum with Fancy Edges Tag Die Set where I heat embossed a thanks sentiment from the same Pumpkin Latte stamp set. Finally I assembled all the elements together with a bit of dimension and some matching sequins.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
