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.

Crafting Desert Divas – February Release Sneak Peek – Me Time & Pot Of Gold

Hello and welcome!

Today I’m sneak peeking not one, but TWO incredibly cute stamp sets from the Craftin Desert Divas new February Release!!!

All the products from the CDD February release will be available for purchase on Friday February, 9 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop.

Happy Belated Birthday #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Me Time Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Let’s start with the first one so adorable and super versatile called Me Time. Playing with the wonderful images from this set, I transformed them into a Belated Birthday card! Psssss! Don’t tell anyone, but I’m terrible at sending my handmade cards so a few from this category are alway so handy! LOL!!!

Happy Belated Birthday #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Me Time Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

This card turned out clean and simple. After I stamped twice on a copic friendly paper with a copic friendly black ink the same cute girl from Me Time stamp set to achieve extra balloons, colored the stamped images with my copic markers and fussy cut around the edge leaving a little white border around, I embellish the edges of my additional panels with a stitched details die-cutting them with the middle frame from Fancy Frame Die set. The blue background behind the girl was made on a piece of a watercolor paper with Peacock Feathers Oxide ink.

Happy Belated Birthday #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Me Time Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

The “Happy Belated Birthday” sentiment from Simply Said stamp set along with some clear drops, a few clouds and a generous coat of Wink Of Stella Clear Brush Glitter Marker finally finished this layout.

You're My Pot Of Gold #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pot Of Gold Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

And here’s the second card featuring fun and so adorable Pot of Gold stamp set.

You're My Pot Of Gold #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Pot Of Gold Set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I mixed and matched a few CDD products creating this card and so along with a sweet troll girl and a sentiment from the new Pot of Gold stamp set, I used Inside Scalloped Circle Die set and then Rainbow Die. The all the elements on this card were stamped with the same copic friendly black ink I used on the other card and colored with copic markers. As always you can find all the exact copic markers I used on both projects at the bottom of this post.

Newton’s Nook Designs Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

nndsweettreatsbloghop

Hello and welcome to the Newton’s Nook Designs 4th Annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

The Newton’s Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats – just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

#handmade cupcake toppers by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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

#handmade cupcake toppers by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


I mixed and matched a few NND sets creating these decorations. The cute muffins from Love Bites stamp set were my first choice and the coordinating Love Bites Die Set came super handy this time for a quick and easy die-cutting because I needed two identical die-cut pieces for every muffin topper. And so I prepared some stamped muffins along with a cute kitty from Sending Hugs stamp set (colored obviously like my sweet furry boy! LOL!!!) on Strathmore Bristol paper because it’s my favorite to use with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. Then I decided to add a romantic feel with a few hearts. These were super quick and easy to put together since I only had to pick a patterned heart stamps from Woodland Duos stamp set, make some stamping with colorful inks and die-cut with the coordinating Darling Hearts die set.

And since my sweet treats include strawberries and some fruit gelees, I made the coordinating decorations as well using Love & Chocolate stamp set and the coordinating dies plus Peppermint Die Set.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Newton’s Sweetheart



Hello and welcome to Day 4 of the Newton’s Nook Designs January Release!

The last day reserves us a very sweet surprise!!! A new super adorable and absolutely charming stamp set featuring the cutest mischief Newton!!!

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!

Smitten As A Kitten #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Sweetheart stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is focusing on a very special stamp set called Newton’s Sweetheart and there’s no need to tell you that it has stolen my heart at the first sight! LOL!!! All the die fans can get the coordinating dies as well.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Newton’s Sweetheart 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 love the look of white on a kraft cardstock. And so I started this card applying a white embossing paste through just released Tumbling Hearts Stencil. I purposely didn’t smooth the embossing paste to achieve a fun texture.

Smitten As A Kitten #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Sweetheart stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

While the embossing paste was drying, I die-cut, stamped and colored with copic markers a sweet couple of kitties along with a few tiny hearts. I kept my hand very light and chose soft colors for the critters almost giving them a white slightly shaded look. Then I added bright red details to make them pop against the background. Finally, I prepared two fish-tale banners die-cutting them with Frames & Flags Die Set from a white cardstock first and then coloring one with the same res shades I used previously on the kitties. The last steps were a heat embossed sentiment from the same Newton’s Sweetheart set, a shimmer pen and a coat of Glossy Accents from Ranger on the milk bottle.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 1 – Love Bites and Tumbling Hearts



Hello and welcome to Day 1 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 avaliable for purchaise on Friday, January 19th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Love Bites #handmade tags by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Bites stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The first day of the release starts with super adorable Love Bites stamp set that comes with the coordinating dies and amazing Tumbling Hearts Stencil. Do you feel love in the air? Valentine’s Day is approaching and so let’s get ready with some projects to show to your love ones a lot of affection and love in a fun and creative way!!!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Love Bites 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’ve come with a series of cute tags featuring new Love Bites stamp set! I think it would be fun to add them to the home made treats for an extra special touch or slide into someone’s lunch box for a super sweet surprise.

Love Bites #handmade tags by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Bites stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Creating these tags, I played with colorful cardstock die-cutting a bunch of tag bases from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set  and then once again from a plain white cardstock, decorating these die-cuts with a banner tale and a heart window from Darling Hearts Die Set. Then I stamped on a Bristol paper, water colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies a bunch of cute characters from Love Bites stamp set. I used a shimmer pen this time to spread the color from the markers instead of a regular water brush for a bit of sparkle and interest.  The last steps were the heat embossed matching sentiments and adding the colored stamps to the tag base along with a few tiny hearts die-cut with the same coordinating dies I used before.
