Newton’s Nook Designs’ June Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Porch Swing Friends & Roses


Hello and welcome to the final day the Newton’s Nook June release! Thanks so much for hopping along all this week and for all the wonderful comments you left me! I appreciate so much all your love and support!

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

Life Is Better With A Friend Like You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Porch Swing Friends stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The last day of the release has reserved us two small, but not less adorable stamp sets: the cutest Porch Swing Friends and beautiful Roses. Both sets come with the coordinating dies.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both new stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!




My first card features the cutest sweet scene from Porch Swing Friends stamp set. Since I worked with water based markers, I went for my win win combo: Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx Black ink, Pentel Water Brush and MISTI tool. I made the die cutting first using the coordinating Porch Swing Friends Die Set, then stamped the open images from Porch Swing Friends stamp set, let the ink air dry and finally colored all the elements.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N79, 133, 195, 452, 723, 743, 933, 946, 947, 992, 993, 977.

An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from a light gray card stock. I cut out another white rectangle to go on top where I die cut a square using Frames Squared Die Set, creating a sort of polaroid frame element. I thought a bit out of boxes and transformed the cloud die from Sky Borders Die Set into a tree foliage by inking it with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. I also inked the leftover die cut square with Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink to use as a background behind the fur friends. Porch Swing Friends Die Set comes with an extra word dies and so I picked the “relax” one to pair with the stamped sentiment from Porch Swing Friends stamp set. Finally I assembled the card with a bit of dimension.

The next project features amazing Roses stamp and die sets. To start, I die cut twice the flower cluster from Fabriano Extra White Hot Pressed Watercolor paper. I used my MISTI tool and the negative part of the die to stamped the roses with Antique Linen Distress ink. This type of ink is very light and reactivates with water which makes it perfect for no-line coloring.

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

I’ll be honest, no-line coloring is not fast, but I looooove coloring and don’t mind to spend a few hours working on a project sometimes. I used regular watercolors this time and tried to mix different shades between pinks and yellows to create some variation in colors.

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

Once finished with coloring, I prepaid a kraft card base with faux stitched scalloped rectangle from Frames & Flags Die Set. Then I heat embossed the sentiment with a fine gold embossing powder and framed it into a circle using new Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set. I finished this project with a matching kraft and gold bow and a few clear iridescent sequins.

SugarPea Designs Spring 2020 Release: Day 5

Smile Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Envie stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome to Day 5 of the SugarPea Spring Product Release!

I hope you’ve joined SPD Design Team this week and hopped along for a chance at winning one of FIVE GIVEAWAYS! If not, there’s still time to enter! All you need to do is leave a comment for your chance to win.

**Please note that links to SPD store for these new products will not go LIVE until 2PM EST on May 22th.**

Today’s I decided to stretch more beautiful Floral Envie stamp and the coordinating Floral Envie SugarCut that comes with an extra word with shadow die “SMILE”.

Floral Envie

Floral Envie SugarCut


To start, I die cut a piece of hot pressed watercolor paper from Fabriano brand using a dotted rectangle from Card Front Element Builder II that is large enough to cover the whole A2 size card front (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″). Next I stamped at an angle beautiful Floral Envie images with Antique Linen Distress ink. This ink is light and reactivates with water what makes it perfect for no-line coloring. I proceeded with coloring using Tombow markers and the small water brush from Pentel. No-line coloring is not fast so it took me a while to finish both flowers clusters, but I enjoyed very much the coloring process!

Here’s the list of the colors used on this project: TOMBOW 192, 757, 772, 850, 991.

Smile Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Envie stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesignsI popped the colored panel on the card base and prepared a heat embossed sentiment. First I die cut the word “SMILE” from Floral Envie SugarCut, smooched VersaMark ink on top and embossed the die with a fine gold embossing powder. I repeated this step a few times to achieve a smooth metallic look. Next I heat embossed the word “FRIEND” from Floral Envie stamp set on a tiny piece of a black cardstock and finally assembled all the elements together. As a finish touch, I adhered a bunch of matching sequins.

New Release From Purple Onion Designs Illustrated By Julian Charton

The Hug Squad Is Here #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

I’m back with my another project featuring amazing new collection of rubber stamps from Purple Onion Designs illustrated by very talented Julian Charlton. There are 7 new adorable stamp sets that are perfect for quick, clean and simple card making!  Each set contains one illustration along with several different sentiments. Lottie’s Gang along with Elliot & Marcel will bring a smile to your face.  You might find the “Hugs” sets very appropriate for what we are all experiencing around the world right now.

The Hug Squad Is Here #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Lottie’s Gang – Squad Hugs stamp set that I used on todays’ card is probably one of my favorites from this new collection. I went again for a clean and simple design. To start, I stamped the hug squad on Neenah Solar White paper with copic friendly Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with copic markers and then fussy cut with the sharp small scissors leaving a little white edge around. Easy! Right?! An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was prepared from the same Neenah Solar White paper along with a stitched square die cut using Newton’s Nook Frames Squared Die Set. I inked the square using Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers Distress inks and the blending brushes with a very light hand. I added a simply stamped sentiment from the same Lottie’s Gang – Squad Hugs set and started assembling all the elements together using a foam tape. I finished this project with a few clear sparkling sequins.

And here’s the complete list of all the colors used on this project: COPIC skin E50-E51-E53; hair YR14-YR18-E9; Y17-YR12-YR14-YR16-YR18; RV0000-RV00-RV10; R0000-R000-R20-R21; YG41-G05; C00-C1.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ February Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Bitty Bibs, Baby Bibs and Sky Scene Builder


Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook February release! I’m so happy you’ve joined me today!

All the new February products will be available for purchase on Friday, February 21th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Congratulations #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bitty Bibs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Cuteness overloads today with super sweet Bitty Bibs stamp set and the coordinating Baby Bibs Die that has a few extra pretty details. Plus there’s a new amazing stand along Sky Scene Builder Die framed with stylish stitched details.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Bitty Bibs 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!


Today I put up together two cute projects. The first one is a baby girl card that features Bitty Bibs stamp set and the coordinating Baby Bibs Die. I just love the additional scalloped layer that comes with Baby Bibs Die Set. To start, I die cut some Baby Bibs using Neenah Solar White paper for the top layer and a soft pink cardstock from my stash for the scalloped one. I decided to add the bear design from Bitty Bibs stamp set to one bib. As always, I used the negative part of the die into my MISTI stamping tool to help me with the alignment while I was making the stamping. Finally colored the patterned bib with copic markers.

In case you’re wondering, here’re all the exact markers used on this project: COPIC RV0000-RV00-RV04-RV10-RV13; E50-E51-E53-E55.

Congratulations #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bitty Bibs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Before arranging all the elements on a standard A2 size white card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) base I added a sentiment from the same Bitty Bibs stamp set: heat embossing the word “Congratulations” on a piece of a pink cardstock colored with RV13 copic marker for a perfect match and simply stamping the second part of the sentiment directly on the card base. Last but not least, I added a bit more of color by adhering small die cut hearts from Holding Happiness Die Set on every white bib.

Congratulations #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bitty Bibs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The second card along with new Sky Scene Builder Die features just released yesterday Hop Into Spring stamp set. It turned out quite simple and keep the main focus on watercoloring elements.

You're Some-BUNNY Special #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hop Into Spring stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once again I started with the die cutting process. I used Hop Into Spring Die Set and a hot presses watercolor paper plus VersaFine Onyx Black ink for stamping the open bunny image from Hop Into Spring stamp set. Next I water colored the stamp and a very simple background with regular watercolors.

You're Some-BUNNY Special #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hop Into Spring stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Assembling all the elements together, I prepared a light gray A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base, framed the watercolor background with a stitched rectangle from Frames & Flags Die Set and wrapped a twine around the stitched frame. Next I added lovely die cut clouds from new Sky Scene Builder Die to the background along with the colored image and finally popped the whole piece on a foam tape. I finished with a simple heat embossed sentiment from Hop Into Spring stamp set put on a piece of a black cardstock.

Stamping On Kraft Cardstock (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Your Friendship Warms My Heart #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

I’ve popped in with a fun stamped card using some bold stamps from amazing Purple Onion Designs’ Silhouettes Collection Designed By Julian Charlton.

Your Friendship Warms My Heart #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

To start, I prepared an A2 size kraft card base using Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. Next I stamped with a white pigment ink Silhouettes – Gifts, Claude (hedgehog), Frederick (fox), Frankie (squirrel), Marshmallow (bunny), Cocoa (winter bunny in hat) stamps. I heat set the ink and then stamped on top the same images slightly offsetting them. Here’re the dye inks I used for the second stamping: Simon Hurley Clear Skies, Simon Hurley Overzealous, Simon Hurley Traffic Cone, Simon Hurley Slippery When Wet, Simon Says Stamp Hot Mama. At this point the card was pretty much done. I only had to add a heat embossed sentiment from Warming Winter Thoughts Sentiment Set that was popped on a foam tape slightly offset to match the colorful images.
