The current challenge is a color one. And I LIKE so much the bright juicy colors from the inspiration graphic! So I hope they will inspire you to play along, just make a project using pink, orange, yellow and teal inspired by the graphic you see below paired with at least one Newton’s Nook Designs brand stamp or die and upload it here for a chance to win a store credit at Newton’s Nook Designs online shop. You can create a card, a tag, a scrapbook page, a treat bag or any other projects related to the papercrafting.

I just can’t stop playing with the amazing Lovely Blooms stamp set and this time I went to emboss resist and added color with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since they are always a winning choice for bright and colorful projects!

I started working on Bristol paper and stamped a bunch of small flowers and a few leaf branches from Lovely Blooms set with a clear sticky ink. I heat embossed all the flowers with a white embossing powder and added color with Zig markers. Once everything was dry, I die-cut all the elements using the coordinating dies from Lovely Blooms die set.

Then I prepared a watercolor background using a traditional watercolor paper since it holds water much better than Bristol one and a traditional teal watercolor from Schmincke. I also tried to heat emboss the matching white sentiment directly on the background, but it was not bold enough to create a contrast so I decided not to give up and fix it putting a small tag on top where I simply stamped with a black ink “You’re Amazing” sentiment from NND Beautiful Plumage stamp set. A few black details were a perfect finish touch!

The current challenge is a sketch one. I like sketch challenges and hope you’ll play along as well, just make a project inspired by the graphic you see below paired with at least one Newton’s Nook Designs brand stamp or die and upload it here for a chance to win a store credit at Newton’s Nook Designs online shop. You can create a card, a tag, a scrapbook page, a treat bag or any other projects related to the papercrafting.

Today I played once more with the amazing Lovely Blooms stamp set. I love it so much and just couldn’t stop playing again and again! Plus it’s so perfect for spring cards!

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

This card came out very quickly. I die-cut a bunch of flowers and leaves using the coordinating Lovely Blooms die set and made my stamping using the negative part left from the die-cuts and a stamping positioning tool. I used a copic friendly paper pared with a copic friendly black ink and finished with a super simple coloring. The card base was made out of a watercolor paper. I smooched a very light blue ink using a piece of clear plastic and added some water droplets on top to create a splotchy background. The personalized sentiment from Simply Relative stamp sets was heat embossed on a piece of a black cardstock and I left nothing to do, but arrange all the element and glue them together.

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.

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!!!

Craftin Desert Divas – April Release Sneak Peek – Floral Wreaths

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!

I’m so excited to be on Craftin Desert Divas blog today bringing you my daily post! Today is day 3 of the sneak peak week and I’m very happy to introduce you a brand new FLORAL WREATHS stamp set available on purchase on April, 20!

Hello Friend #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Wreaths stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

This stamp set is so adorable and will allow you to create beautiful, elegant cards that can cover all the occasions! Plus it’s so easy and fun to use because you have the flowers already arranged in wreaths or clusters and that means no masking and spending time trying to figure out how to put the flowers on your card are needed! Just grab the image you like, stamp it and you are ready to color! I always LOVE such versatile and clever products!

Hello Friend #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Wreaths stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Since the flower stamps from FLORAL WREATHS stamp set are so amazing, I decided to keep my card very clean and simple and watercolor the awesome heart shape wreath! My choice were Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers because these flowers look so springy and so I wished to make something cheerful and bright. My winning combo to use with Zig markers are Bristol paper (I especially love Strathmore brand) and a water brush. They allow to spread colors very easily and don’t leave hash marks.

Hello Friend #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Wreaths stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I like to work in layers on my watercolor projects: first I usually put a light initial one and then start adding more colorful spots, shadows and highlights! I play with the image unless I’m satisfied with the result and often come back working on some ares a few times! Of course, couldn’t skip some little extra finish touches such as tiny black and white splotches and a few matching sequins!

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #45 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

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

The current challenge is called “Use A Doily”. If you want to play along, just use a doily on your projects paired with at least one Newton’s Nook Designs brand product and upload them here for a chance to win a store credit at Newton’s Nook Designs online shop. You can create a card, a tag, a scrapbook page, a treat bag or any other projects related to the papercrafting.

I have to share another idea with you how you can stretch the coordinating dies and get more use out of them. I played with the Lovely Blooms die set that coordinates with the adorable Lovely Blooms stamp set. I didn’t stamp any flowers image this time, but simply die-cut a few flowers and leaves from Bristol paper using the coordinating dies and added color with inkblending tool to them! Super fun and easy technique that allows to get a totally different look out of the same product!

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

Arranging the flowers on my cream color card base, I used a doily, a few crystal clear sequins and the sentiment words from NND Lovely Blooms and Simply Relative stamp sets!
