Newton’s Nook Designs May Release and Giveaway – Winston’s Tee Time

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Newton’s Nook Designs May Release!

I’m so excited to introduce you today the very first stamp set of this fantastic release and I’m sure you’re going love it since it’s couldn’t be any cuter!

Dad You're Tee-riffic #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston's Tee Time Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is showcasing a brand new fun, cute and absolutely adorable WINSTON’S TEE TIME stamp set along with the coordinating dies. It’s small, but filled with the amazing images and great sentiments! I LOVE this clever stamp set because masculine cards haven’t ever been so easy to create. In fact, I just couldn’t leave you with only one example!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving this 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!



And here’s what I came up with. I started with a watercolor shaker card totally inspired by the golf theme so a green watercolor background and some holes were a must-have! LOL!

Dad You're Tee-riffic #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston's Tee Time Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started by stamping the cutie bear, the flag and a bunch of balls to fill my shaker area with a waterproof ink on a watercolor paper and made my watercoloring both on the stamped images and the background. I worked in layers starting very light and progressively adding more colors to the areas that are in shade. Once the watercolor elements were dry, I die-cut them using the coordinating dies that come with WINSTON’S TEE TIME stamp set and three holes on my background piece with a small circle die. At this point I also added my sentiment from the same stamp set stamping it with the same black ink I used before.

Assembling the card, I popped up the watercolor background on a foam tape and filled the shaker area with the golf balls and some matching sequins and beads before attaching it to the card base. Finally I popped up on a foam as well Winston and other small element for a bit of dimension.

My second version is a copic one. But I just couldn’t help playing more with holes and the golf theme making the cutie Winston peeking out from inside.

So I switched to the copic friendly ink and paper and stamped, colored and die-cut with the coordinating dies the images from WINSTON’S TEE TIME stamp set. As always at the bottom of this post you can find all the exact copic markers I used.

Then I proceeded completing the card base. I trimmed an additional A2 size panel and die-cut three holes on it. Placing it on top of my card base, I marked the areas matching the holes and added a bit of color inkblending blue-green shades of Distress inks. Finally I popped on top with a foam tape the additional panel and the colored images and finished with a heat embossed sentiment on a black cardstock.

Wishing You A Birthday Filled With Adventures #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Norse Warriors stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Hello and welcome!

I’m so excited to bring you my daily post at Craftin Desert Divas! Well, today I’m going to talk about masculine cards. I know many of you struggle with them like me, but when I saw a fantastic sentiment “Wishing You A Birthday Filled with Adventure…” from Norse Warriors stamp set, I decided to play with it and fill a box with some great masculine accessorize stamps to match the scheme!

Wishing You A Birthday Filled With Adventures #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Norse Warriors stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

So I stamped with a waterproof ink a few images from Norse Warriors stamp set on Bristol paper, colored them with Zig markers trying to make marked shadows and highlights, fussy cut right up against the edge and corrected any imperfection from cutting with a black marker. While the watercolor pieces were drying, I worked on background making ink blending with Distress inks and flicking after some water droplets in order to bring some interest. I die-cut a Stitched Box out of kraft card stock and made the matching card base for my project!

Finally I stamped the sentiment from the same Norse Warriors stamp set and adhered a few sequins to the card just for something little extra!

That all for today! Hope you like this clean and simple card! And as always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release and Giveaway – Winston Takes Flight and Sky Borders Die

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

So happy you joined me again today! What a great start of the week! So this is my post for the Newton’s Nook Designs March Release. And I have a few projects to share with you today!

Flying By #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston Takes Flight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today NND Design Team is showcasing a brand new stamp set with ADORABLE bear Winston called Winston Takes Flight along with the coordinating die set and fantastic stitched Sky Borders die.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Winston Takes Flight 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!

Love this fantastic stamp set for it’s versatility! You can really cover any occasion by simply adding the right sentiment! And let me tell you that Sky Borders dies work so well with this this stamp set that I just couldn’t resist to put them in practice right away. And here’s my first card!

Flying By #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston Takes Flight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started die-cutting a stitched frame out of a white cardstock. Then I repeatedly die-cut a cloud shape on the inner panel and did a light ink blending from the bottom of every die-cut cloud. Finally I simply put back all the pieces in place like a puzzle.

Flying By #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston Takes Flight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stamped the sentiment, the banner and the cute bear all from the same stamp set onto a copic friendly cardstock and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. I colored the images with copic markers and popped them on a foam tape. I finished to put my empty banner inside the card so that I can add later any sentiment I need.

Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston Takes Flight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

And here is my second card. I decided to stretch my pattern paper and the coordinating dies that come with Winston Takes Flight stamp set on it and chose a matching sky chevron pattern paper.

Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston Takes Flight Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I applied the pattern paper all over the front of my card base and popped on top a more narrow piece of a white cardstock where I previously die-cut pretty clouds that come with the coordinating die set. I stamped a few times the fun Winston on a copic friendly paper and on the pattern paper as well so that I could add to the stamp some cut out patterned color pieces.

Of course, I couldn’t not to use more foam tape and some matching sentiments on both cards along with a shimmer pen and a tiny touches of Glossy Accents.

Interactive Birthday Card (ft. Crafting Desert Divas)

cdd_daily-post_-jan-2017-1

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!

So excited to bring you my first daily post for Craftin Desert Divas! Today I’m sharing a fun interactive card featuring a brand new stamp set from their January Release called Spare Parts.

Love this cute set! It’s very versatile and can cover many occasions! Today I have an example how you can create a birthday boy card out of it!

cdd_daily-post_-jan-2017-2

I started stamping a few robot images from Spare Parts set with a waterproof ink on Bristol paper, coloring them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cutting leaving little white edge around.

I prepared my card base masking the bottom edge and added color using ink blending technique with distress inks. Finally I spritzed drops of pearlized water on top of the pattern to bring some interest.

cdd_daily-post_-jan-2017-3

Then I proceeded with an interactive part. I cut out with a craft knife a long narrow rectangle on a piece of a white card stock that was cut slightly smaller than the card base. To make my robot stamps slide across the card, I adhered little rectangle pieces of a foam tape to the images, put them in place and blocked with circles punched from a white card stock. Finally popped up the whole piece on the card base with a foam tape.

I felt like I still needed something else to tie all the elements together. So I protected the colored parts of my card and added some splotches of color using the same Zig markers I used on the robots. I finished adding some shimmer with a glitter pen and shine with Glossy Accents and didn’t add any sequins this time since it could obstacle the interactive part.

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you like the idea and you’ll give it a try!

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge – January 2017

cdd_msmc-jan-2017_2-1

Happy Friday!

Today I’m bringing you more inspiration for the Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge. They have an amazing mood board for the month of January!

ccd-janThis card is super simple and clean and focused on copic coloring. I LOVE coloring with any media and a cute Hockey Boy digital stamp from Craftin Desert Divas seemed to be perfect for a winter card. So once I finished with coloring, I fussy cut the image leaving a white edge around and started working on the background.

cdd_msmc-jan-2017_2-3

I did a soft ink blending right on the front panel of my card base with distress inks and cut with a craft knife a snow slope from another piece of a white card stock.

cdd_msmc-jan-2017_2-2

Finally popped up all the elements on a foam tape. As a finish touches added faux snowflakes with a white gel pen and a few matching sequins.
