Cuteness overloads today on NND and my blogs with new and so adorable Papa Bear stamp set! It’s filled with awesome cute images and many great sentiments! This set also comes with the coordinating dies.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Papa Bear 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 went for a fun interactive shaker card because I decided to get more use out of the small stamps from Papa Bear stamp set and fill the shaker window with masculine accessories! Just released on Monday Framework Die set came super handy for die cutting the rectangle scalloped window.

Next I worked with the main image and small stamps, of course. First of all I made die cutting using Strathmore Bristol paper and this time the coordinating dies came super handy. Then I stamped the cute bears and a whole bunch of small images with a black waterproof ink and made a super simple watercoloring with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. The sentiment was die cut from Essential Alphabet die set on a bright purple cardstock and adhered on top of the shaker window.

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #445 (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)


Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be a “Guest Sweetie” today over at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog! Have you heard about them? This is such a SWEET Challenge Group! For each challenge they post an amazing cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?

Mom #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Well, the roses from the inspiration picture made me immediately think about the super adorable Lovely Blooms stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs and so grabbed some flowers and leaves and heat embossed a bunch on a white Bristol paper using a white embossing powder.

Mom #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I used Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint shades and a few ink blending tools to add color. This is a super fun, quick and easy way to do that since the embossed lines resist from being inked and remain white revealing the pattern.

Mom #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Next I die cut all the elements with the coordinating dies that came so handy for this project along with a “MOM” sentiment using new Essential Alphabet dies. Finally all the elements were arranged on a plain white card base and adhered with a bit of dimention.

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.

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

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.

Meet You At The 19th Hole #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winston's Tee Time Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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.

For Mum Shaped Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

For My Mum #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

So happy you’ve joined me today! I’m bringing you this bright spring card featuring Lovely Blooms stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs! I was inspired by a project I saw on Instagram a few days ago and thought it would be great to stretch once more the coordinating dies and create a shaped card out of them!

For My Mum #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The beautiful flowers from Lovely Blooms stamp set are so amazing and have fantastic design that gives you almost infinite ways of use on your projects! And so this time my choice was on stamping them with Distress inks and a simple non-perfect splotchy watercoloring!

For My Mum #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started by die-cutting a bunch of flowers and leaves out of Lovely Blooms Die Set along with the jar element that was cut out twice to create a card base. I used Distress Watercolor cardstock for this project since it meant to be used with Distress inks and reactive with water so well plus it’s thick and that gives more stability for the shaped card. Then I simply stamped outline images from Lovely Blooms stamp set using Distress inks and used them for watercoloring as well.

For My Mum #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once all the elements were dried, I started assembling my shaped card from the jar stamp adhering only the top part to create the card base that could be opened and of course, hold a message inside. Then I proceeded with arranging leaves and flowers gluing them together to form a bouquet! And finally I added a little personalized tag made out of Tags Times Two Die set and a super clever Simply Relative stamp set that allows you to create custom messages for any occasion!

That’s all for today! And if you need more inspiration, you can find two other awesome projects featuring Lovely Blooms stamp set here in a shaker card and here for some more ideas on how to stretch the coordinating dies!  As always thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving me nice comments! I really appreciate your support!!!

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release and Giveaway – Simply Relative

Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy I’ve joined the Newton’s Nook Designs Design Team for Day 3 of the April Release!

World's Best Mother #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today we are showcasing a brand new stamp set called SIMPLY RELATIVE. Well, many people when they are aproaching paper crafting hobbies always wonder what should I start with in supplies terms! Which stamp sets are the first to add to the stash! And I always recommend to get a good sentiment stamp set that can be used on any papercrafting projects! And I’m really happy that Newton’s Nook Design’s are coming with this fantastic one! I LOVE that it has big bold hand written words pared with a small simple ones. Really great design and infinite possibilities of use!

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 today! It’s another Mother’s Day project and hope it will inspire you! I played again with LOVELY BLOOMS stamp set from Day 2 of the NND April Release and combined it with SIMPLY RELATIVE set.

World's Best Mother #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Well, this time I pull my watercolors and heat embossed the beautiful hydrangea flowers with a white embossing powder on a watercolor paper, die-cut them with the coordinating dies and then simply colored the images using wet on wet technique when you basically paint with clear water first and then add color on top. The color will spread across the wet area and you will get a typical watercolor look! The key here is to work at a singular spot at a time otherwise you risk to “contaminate” the whole image loosing highlights and shadows!

World's Best Mother #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

While the watercolored elements were drying, I worked on my card base! I arranged a bunch of sentiment stamps from SIMPLY RELATIVE set and inked them with a light gray ink. Then I emphasized some words with a black ink to form the “World’s Best Mother” sentence and finished the card by popping the flowers on a foam tape on top.
