DIY Sweet Treats Bags by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps and dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my stop on this hop I created some sweet treat bags perfect to give an extra special touch for your San Valentine’s gifts!!!

DIY Sweet Treats Bags by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps and dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I prepared paper bags from a plain white light weight cardstock. Before assembling the bags, I used a small heart from Woodland Duos stamp set for the first bag and a big love sentiment from Uplifting Wishes stamp set for the second one and repeatedly stamped them creating my own pattern paper. I used Hero Arts Pale Tomato and Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red dye inks for all the stamping on these projects.

Next I assembled both treat bags and decided to decorate them with a big heart and the word “LOVE” both die cut from Darling Hearts set. For a perfect match I used the same red dye inks that I’ve mentioned before and an ink blending tool to add colors on the hearts. Finally I adhered everything on one side of the treat bags along with a little bow. Easy peasy!!! What do you think?

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – My Type and Candy Heart

Hello and thanks so much for joining me for the final day the Newton’s Nook Designs January release!

All the new January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 18th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

You're Just My Type #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - My Type stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today we have two small, but not less adorable stamp sets called My Type and Candy Heart. Both new sets come with the coordinating dies.

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

My first card features My Type stamp and die sets!

You're Just My Type #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - My Type stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I die cut the typewriter from Strathmore Bristol paper using My Type Die Set and stamped the coordinating image from My Type stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it doesn’t smudge when used with water. Next I did a super simple coloring using Tombow markers: n.N25, n.N60, n.452, n.703, n.772.

I prepared the sentiment element using the same My Type set and a speech bubble from Newton’s Day Dream stamp set.

You're Just My Type #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - My Type stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the background I die cut a stamp edge frame from Framework Die Set on a piece of a white cardstock and a big heat from Darling Hearts Die Set on a masking paper. Next I applied the negative part of the heart mask towards the center of my card and inked it with a light pink ink. Before removing the mask, I tape on top Tumbling Hearts stencil and inked the heart window once more creating a pattern on top. Finally I could reveal the mask and pop all the elements on a foam tape for a bit of dimension.

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

Creating my second card, I decided to stretch more Candy Heart stamp and die sets and created entire project using only this small bundle.

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

Candy Heart Die Set is done in a very clever way and has the shaped heart matching the heart stamp from Candy Heart stamp set plus another simple heart die. I used the second one and repeatedly die cut it on a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock that was previously inked with Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress inks. Next I trimmed and scored in half a regular A2 size card base from a bright pink card stock. I placed the negative part of the die cut panel to the card base and marked all the heart windows with a pencil. Finally I heat embossed different sentiments from Candy Heart stamp set with a white embossing paste directly on the card front, erased all the pencil lines and popped the die cut panel on top. A few matching sequins finished this card.

Newton’s Nook Designs June Release and Giveaway – Day 1 – Playful Pandas

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Newton’s Nook Designs June Release!
I’m super excited and can’t wait to introduce you tons of new fabulous goodies this month!!! Ready??? So let’s start!

All the new June products will be available for purchase on Friday, June 22th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Hey There #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Playful Pandas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

NND Design Team is kicking off this week with a super ADORABLE Playful Pandas stamp set filled with super fun and cute images, fantastic sentiments that can be used through all the year! Love clever and versatile stamps like this!!! All the die cut fans can get the coordinating dies for this set as well. But wait a minute because I’m so thrilled to introduce you two new stencils that NND adds to their collection: Serene Stripes and Sunscape.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Playful Pandas 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!
Playful Pandas

Working on today’s projects, I started with a fun background using new Serene Stripes stencil and Distress Oxide ink in Twisted Citron color. I used an ink blending tool and applied the ink through the stencil, then I added a bit more towards the bottom part of the panel along with a few water droplets and color splashes. Finally I die cut a circle in the center of the rectangle and used both negative and positive parts for my projects.

Serene Stripes

Next I die cut, stamped with Memento black ink the cute pandas and the accessories Playful Pandas stamp set and colored them with copic markers.  These images are so quick and easy to use since pandas are black and white! So no fancy coloring is required! The stamps themselves do all the work for you!!! LOL!!!

Hey There #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Playful Pandas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The layout of the first card was planned as a circle focus point. I arranged and popped on a foam tape the circle background prepared before, added the cutie panda, a few balloons and a bowl along with a heat embossed sentiment. Some colorful sequins finished this clean and simple project.

Hey There #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Playful Pandas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Playing with negative part of the background, I added a bunch of bamboo branches creating the panda’s habitat.

I Love You More Than Bamboo #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Playful Pandas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once again the simple coloring was made with copic markers and the fun panda was placed on a fish-tale banner die cut with Frames & Frags die set where I heat embossed the matching sentiment from the same Playful Pandas stamp set.

Finally some colorful sequins were added to this card as a finish touch.

Reverse Confetti June Release Blog Hop

Love You To The Moon & Back #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Moon Men stamp set by Reverse Confetti #reverseconfetti

Hello and welcome!!!
Today I’m hopping with the Reverse Confetti Design Team and some very special guests to celebrate their new release!!! You’ll find a complete hop list at the bottom of this post!

Love You To The Moon & Back #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Moon Men stamp set by Reverse Confetti #reverseconfetti

I decided to play more with super adorable Moon Men and create a matching Moon scene. First of all I die cut some cute images using the coordinating Moon Men Confetti Cuts and Bristol paper from Tombow. Then I made my stamping using a crisp black waterproof ink and watercolor the fun people with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. Next I proceeded with a background. I masked a circle on a plain white panel and added Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink in the open area with an ink blending tool. Then I spritzed a few droplets of pearlized solution along with some colorful splashes for more interest and realistic feeling and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Moon Men stamp set on a piece of a black cardstock. Last but not least, I created my own pattern on one side of the card base by repeatedly stamping star stamps that are included in the stamp set.

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Company of Cats



Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs February 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 February products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, February 16th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

You're the Coolest Cat of All #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Company of Cats stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m sure that all cat people just cannot resist to a super adorable Company of Cats from this new release! I’m head over heals on seeing so many super cute kitties! Plus I loooove big stamp sets: no masking and arranging and over thinking are needed! You’re immediately ready to sit down, relax and just enjoy the coloring process! This stamp doesn’t have dies, but it coordinates perfectly with Frames & Flags die set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Company of Cats 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!

Today I came with an interactive shaker card! I picked one of the sentiments that come with Company of Cats stamp set and decided to play around it! And so I colored all the stack of cute kitties in gray tones and then made pop the one with a funny face by giving him strong bright colors.

You're the Coolest Cat of All #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Company of Cats stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

When I work with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, my win win combo is Strathmore Bristol paper and a small watercolor brush from Pentel. Once all the furry company was colored, I went a little bit crazy and fussy cut the whole stamp following the stamp lines and then colored the edge with a black marker to hide any imperfection due to the fussy cutting. Assembling the card, I prepared a window frame for the shaker element by aligning and die cutting two frames from Frames & Flags die set. Then, before adhering the die cut frame on a foam tape, I filled the shaker area both with clear iridescent sequins and some colorful beads to remind the colors I used on the kitty. Finally I did more die cutting and put the coordinating sentiment on a fish-tale banner from Frames & Flags die set and finish by embellishing it with an yellowy-orange twine to add another pop of color to this clean card.
