Thinking Of You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottage Garden Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

So happy you’ve joined me today! I’m bringing you this cheerful bright spring card featuring Cottage Garden stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs! This set is just fabulous! It is filled with lovely images inspired by Scandinavian folk art and can be used in so many different ways! It’s great for stamping, no-line coloring and different techniques such as emboss resist, for example! It’s fantastic on kraft card stock, vellum and can cover almost all the occasions!

I’m not a great stamper, but this beautiful stamp set has really stolen my heart!  And so I decided to try a little bit of ombré stamping! The colors were inspired by amazing cottage gardens I saw on-line and the layout by the current Inky Paw Challenge!

Thinking Of You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottage Garden Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I chose some pink, bright pink and violet dye inks for this card and started by stamping a bunch of beautiful flowers. Then while the ink was still wet I reinked the bottom part of my stamps with a slightly darker shade and stamped on top to create an ombré look and give a little bit of depth and interest. I repeated the same process with the flower stems using green shades and then simply added a few light blue flowers since they are so small.

Once finished with stamping, I die-cut all the elements using the coordinating dies that come very handy for this set along with a curved line from Newton’s Nook Designs Land Borders die set. I popped up on a foam tape almost all the elements and arranged them around the fence. The sentiment comes from the same Cottage Garden set and was simply heat embossed with a white embossing powder!

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving me nice comments! I really appreciate your support!!!

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge – March 2017

Hello Spring #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Crazy Stitched Frame Dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

My today’s card is a little bit different from what I usually do. In fact, it has only die-cut elements except of the sentiment. I thought it would be fun to stretch all the little extra dies that comes in many die sets. This particular card features Crazy Stitched Frame Dies from Craftin Desert Divas.

Hello Spring #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Crazy Stitched Frame Dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

So I die-cut the largest stitched rectangle frame from Crazy Stitched Frame Dies set out of a white card stock as well as a bunch of flowers and leaves from colorful one. But if you don’t have colorful card stock or the right colors, you can always color them with any media you have on hand.

Hello Spring #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Crazy Stitched Frame Dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I slightly shaped the flowers with a bullet point tool, arrange them on my front panel and adhered adding a flower shape sequin from CDD Spring Time Wishes mix to the center of every flower. A simple sentiment from CDD Simply Said stamp set finished the card.

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you join Craftin Desert divas March Monthly Social Media Challenge!

My simple watercolor card has a few takes on the inspiration photo: a shape, colors, a cute kitty holding cupcake and sprinkles inside the shaker area made out of beads. In case you are wondering the sweet kitty, the tiny little candles and the sentiment are from a super adorable Newton Loves Cake stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs. All the images were stamped with a waterproof ink on a watercolor paper. I made a simple splotchy watercoloring on the background as well as the initial layer on the kitty stamp. Later, after die-cutting the image, I added a few details with color pencils on top.

Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #41

ipcsidebarbadge

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #41 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

newton-dreams-of-paris_tt_1The current challenge is a color one and it’s all about soft pastel spring yummy colors. Want to join? Just use Mint, Light Pink, Yellow and White on you projects along with some NND products and upload them here for a chance to win a store credit at Newton’s Nook Designs online shop.

15826850_10154621836971311_3799447897206530821_nI’m recently obsessed with Darling Hearts Die set from NND and continue using it over and over again. This time I went with something really creative and transform the largest heart die from this set into a top part of a hot air balloon.

newton-dreams-of-paris_tt_3Once die-cut 6 times from a thing copic friendly paper the hearts were colored with copic markers and then decorated with a flower stamp from NND Bunny Hop stamp set that was heat embossed with a white embossing powder. If you use copic markers, be sure to add the color first and then heat emboss your stamps. Don’t use your copic markers on top of the embossing powder because you can damage them!!! Of course, if you have a matching paper in your stash, you can skip this step!

newton-dreams-of-paris_tt_2I made the score marks in the middle of the die-cut hearts before folding them in half and glued together alternating the colors to form the 3D top part of the hot air balloon. Then I partially stamped the bottom part of the adorable kitty image from NND Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set on another piece of copic friendly paper, masked it and blended a few soft mint clouds around. Finally I removed the mask and colored the kitty itself with copics. A simply stamped sentiment and a few sequins finished the card.

That’s all for today! Hope my card will inspire you and you’ll join this color challenge! I’ll catch you up on the Inky Paws Challenge Blog! Have a great week!
