Best Friends Come in All Shapes & Sizes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Woof Pack stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

NND just cannot leave all dog fans disappointed and so after the incredible Company of Cats I’m sooooooo happy to present you a whole bunch of super cute puppies in the new stamp set called Woof Pack that coordinates perfectly with Frames & Flags die set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Woof Pack 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 was super excited to dive into dog breed searching and had so much fun coloring these cuties with my Zig markers. In case you are not a dog expert (like me! LOL!!!) here’s the reference to all the dogs from Woof Pack stamp set:

Left to Right:
Top row: Bulldog, Chihuahua, Boxer, Jack Russell Terrier
Second row: Poodle, Dachshund, Beagle, Basset Hound
Third row: Cocker Spaniel, Yorkshire Terrier, Boston Terrier
Corgi squeezed in between the rows
Bottom row: German Shepherd, Saint Bernard, Pug, Labrador Retriever

Best Friends Come in All Shapes & Sizes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Woof Pack stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since I was working with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, I chose once more Strathmore Bristol paper as blending goes super easy on this type of paper plus a small watercolor brush from Pentel. Once the all the dogs were colored, I used a stitched frame die from Frames & Flags die set to frame all the woof pack and then die cut the same frame once more directly on the front panel of the card base. I aligned the positive die cut piece with the frame window on the card base and adhered the dogs to the inner part of the card so that once opened you have the empty frame on the card front and the colored piece inside. The last step was a little bit more die cutting. I prepared three fish-tale banners with Frames & Flags die set and used one to stamp the sentiment from Woof Pack set while two others were simply colored with the same Zig markers I used before.

Crafting Desert Divas – February Release Replay – Donut Party

Happy Monday!

I’m starting this week with a replay post on the February release from Craftin Desert Divas!!!

To The Sweetest Person I Know #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Donut Party Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Today I have to share a super sweet card featuring not less sweet and just adorable Donut Party stamp set! This cutie panda is sooooo lovely, isn’t she?

To The Sweetest Person I Know #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Donut Party Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

First of all, I used my good old copic friendly black ink to stamp some images from Donut Party stamp set. I colored everything with copic markers, of course, and fussy cut around the edge leaving a little white border around. Then I started working on the card base and prepared an additional panel to go on the card front die-cutting a circle from Stitched In Circle Die set. I laid the circle window on the card base and marked its positions so that I could add super soft colors with an ink blending tool and Distress oxide inks in Peacock Feathers and Vintage Photo colors in the right spot. And finally I assembled all the elements with a bit of dimension, a coat of clear shimmer pen from Wink Of Stella Clear Brush Glitter Marker and a few matching sequins. Last but not least, was a simply heat embossed sweet sentiment from Sweetest Birthday stamp set.

Deer Friend and Grazie Cards (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend 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 two sweet and cute cards!

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

I just cannot put aside new fantastic goodies from the Newton’s Nook Designs January release without stretching them more and had a lot of fun playing again with two of my favorites! So let’s see what I came up with this time!

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

My first card features a super adorable and so incredibly cute Deer Friend stamp set. I really felt in loooove with the sweet fawns and so I grabbed the coordinating Deer Friend Die Set and die cut a bunch of elements from a watercolor paper, aligned them into my stamping positioning tool for a quick and easy stamping. Then I just enjoyed making a super simple watercoloring both on the stamps and the background with regular watercolors I have in my stash.

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once all the elements were dried, I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Deer Friend stamp set and assembled the card on a square 5″x5″ kraft base, adding some dimension with a foam tape.

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

My second card was colored with copic markers. That’s why I started it with Neenah Solar white paper and played with the super adorable couple of kitties from Newton’s Sweetheart stamp set. You know me: I just love to use stamps in a creative way. And since the kitties were reminding me my furry mischiefs, I decided to transform a love stamp into a thanks one and to make a personalized card to give to the girl who takes care of my kitties when I’m away from home! Once more I used the coordinating dies from Newton’s Sweetheart Die Set for a quick and easy die cutting. At this point I also prepared a few other die cut elements for the layout using Darling Hearts  and Frame & Flags die sets and created my own tone on tone pattern through Tumbling Hearts stencil. Coloring the kitties with copic markers I decided to try a new to me and very fun technique that made the cats look as if they were stuffed animals. And finally added “Grazie” sentiment from Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set that came sooooo handy to me because grazie means thanks in Italian.

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

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Deer Friend



Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs January Release!

Are you ready for another FANTASTIC release filled with incredible and so various products that will suit any paper crafter?! So let’s start!

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

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is kicking off a super adorable Deer Friend stamp set that has become one of my favorites because it’s filled with such DEER images and sentiments perfect both for special occasions and for a simply friend card. This set also has the coordinating dies that you can get apart.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Deer Friend 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!

For me the cute deers were just screaming for watercoloring. And so I first die-cut one from a watercolor paper using the coordinating dies along with a few tiny leaves and flowers because I find that it’s easily to align the negative part of the die into a stamping positioning tool and then make stamping! Plus it goes much faster in case you need to do multiple stamping of the same image!

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

While the watercolor elements were drying, I started working on the background. First of all I created the tag similar to what I did for the first day of the release, die-cutting the tag twice from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set using a light green and white cardstock, creating a fancy edge on the white one and then heat embossing the sentiment from the same Deer Friend stamp set. (In case you missed this post, you can catch it up right here.) Then I used just released Tumbling Hearts Stencil and create my own colorful embossing paste by simply mixing a regular white one with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. Assembling the card, I popped some elements onto a foam tape for a bit of dimension and added a little bow on the top part of the tag.

Craftin Desert Divas – July Release Sneak Peek – Mermaid Lagoon



Hello and welcome!

So happy you’ve joined me today for day three of the Craftin Desert Divas July release because today’s stamp set is soooo AMAZING and I can’t wait to introduce it to you!  It’s called Mermaid Lagoon and as you can guess it has some really fantastic mermaid stamps along with cute sentiments and a few small under the sea theme images!

All the products from the CDD July release will be available for purchase on Tuesday July, 10 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop!

For A Mermaizing Friend #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mermaid Lagoon stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I played once more with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since they are so fresh and vibrant in terms of colors and I just love how watercolor technique matches the ocean theme! On this card I created a circle focal point using CDD Inside Scalloped Circle Dies and transformed it into a shaker window adhering the ocean friends right to the background and filling it with some sequins to create a water bubble effect! Here’s a little tip for you: when you are working on shaker cards or interactive projects, please, assure to use a glue that dries out NON STICKY!!! My ever favorite is Multi Medium Matte from Ranger!

For A Mermaizing Friend #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mermaid Lagoon stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

And since many of you asked me about the wavy backgrounds I created featuring Jawsome and Ocean Friends stamp sets (if you missed these projects, you can find them right here), I’ll leave you step by step tutorial:

  • I started working on a peace of a Bristol paper with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in Peacock Blue, Persian Blue, Turquise Blue and Cobalt Blue colors. I found that not all Bristol papers are the same. I personally prefer Strathmore brand.
  • I scribbled some wavy lines putting the darker blue shades towards the bottom and then extended them with a water brush. I used the largest size of the water brush from Pentel.
  • Then I repeated the previous step a few times till I was satisfied with the saturation.
  • I heat set the paper piece and then flicked a few times some water droplets on top and lift the colors with a paper towel creating a splotchy water effect.
  • Finally I mixed a small amount of a white gouache with water and applied more droplets to the background with a regular brush this time, creating more strong and evident water bubbles.
