When Life Gives You A Rainy Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Loads of Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Well, “Plaid Theme” immediately make me think about Newton’s Nook Designs Plaid Stencil Bundle. It’s a fun product that comes in two layers and offers you really infinite possibilities and combinations. Since spring is showing up here, I decided to go with yellow and teal colors and inked the first layer using Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink and the second one with Peacock Feathers shade. Next I cleaned and applied once more the second stencil layer slightly shifted since I felt like the plaid design was needed more yellow tones.

When Life Gives You A Rainy Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Loads of Blooms stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The cute girl was first die cut from Loads of Blooms Die Set and then stamped with the coordinating Loads of Blooms stamp set and a waterproof black ink since my intention was to use Tombow Markers for coloring. As always, I opted for Strathmore Bristol paper and a small water brush from Pentel.

In case you’re wondering, here’s the complete list of all TOMBOW markers used here: n.025, n.055, n.133, n.173, n.373, n.443, n.452, n.476, n.535, n.703, n.761, n.873, n.912, n.990.

To frame the spring scene, I die cut a stitched rectangle from Frames & Flags Die Set and stamped some rainy droplets from Newton’s Rainy Day stamp set with the same teal ink I used before. Since Distress inks are reactive with water, I added some water droplets on top for a more playful look. I completed the scene with a little frog from Newton’s Rainy Day stamp and die sets and the coordinating sentiment. Finally I “grounded” the whole scene by drawing a simple puddle.

Hope you like this sweet and simple card and make sure you pop over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog to see more amazing projects today! As always thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate your love and support!

Spring Time Smiles #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spring Pile Up stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Thanks so much for taking part of this release and hopping along with the NND Design Team! Last day of the reveal reserved us two small, cute and so adorable stamp sets called Spring Pile Up and Puppy Pals. Both sets come with the coordinating dies and the additional “Happy Easter” sentiment die.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Spring Pile Up and Puppy Pals 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!



The card featuring Spring Pile Up stamp set turned as a fun spring scene.

Spring Time Smiles #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spring Pile Up stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I die cut, stamped and colored a cute pile using Spring Pile Up stamp and die sets. I used my ever favorites Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx Black ink, a small water brush from Pentel and Tombow markers. For the spring scene I used Land Borders Die Set and Cloudy Sky stencil. Applying the embossing paste I didn’t smooth it to achieve a fun texture on the clouds.

Here’s the complete list of all Tombow markers used: n.N79, n.N95, n.025, n.090, n.133, n.723, n.761, n.772, n.800, n.850, n.873, n.942, n.985, n.990, n.992.

My second card along with a new cute Puppy Pals set features new Bold Blooms stencil. The puppies were stamped and colored with the same materials that I used on the previous card.

I’m leaving the color list of Tombow markers used on this project: n.N15, n.N57, n.N60, n.N79, n.N89, n.025, n.090, n.133, n.873, n.885, n.899, n.947, n.977.

Friends Fur-ever #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Puppy Pals stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Creating the background, I applied Bold Blooms stencil directly to the card base. I filled some spots with a white embossing paste. Next I mixed the same white embossing paste with Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide ink and filled the empty spots with the colorful mixture. This technique let me achieved a pattern with well visible flowers that were not overwhelming the colored images.

The other elements for the layout were created using Framework Die Set, Darling Hearts Die Set and Pawprint stencil. Finally the heat embossed sentiment from the same Puppy Pals stamp set gave a finished touch to this card.

I stared this project making some ink blending and prepared an ombré green panel to cover the whole card front using Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron Distress inks and then die cut Egg Window SugarCut in the center. I also prepared a pinkish piece blending Tatted Rose, Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet Distress inks to go as a background for the egg window.

I filled the shaker part with sequins and fine glitter. Then I die cut the bunny shape using the same Egg Window SugarCut from a hot pressed watercolor paper and made a super simple no line coloring with regular watercolors. I popped the bunny into the center of the egg window and finished with the Eater sentiment. One part of the sentiment was die cut with Easter Word SugarCut and the other – heat embossed from Easter Wishes stamp set on a stripe of a gray cardstock.

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Newton’s Peeps


Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs February release! So happy you’ve joined me today!

All the new February products will be available for purchase on Friday, February 15th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Happy Easter To My Favorite Peeps #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Peeps stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m so excited to introduce you today a small, but not less adorable Newton’s Peeps stamp and die sets perfect for Easter and spring projects with my favorite mischievous kitty!!!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Newton’s Peeps 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!

Creating this project, I played with a happy and bright pattern paper so I have to get a super bright and saturated image in order to balance the card focus.

Happy Easter To My Favorite Peeps #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Peeps stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I chose Neenah Solar White paper since it’s my favorite to use with copic markers. As usual, I made the die cutting first using Newton’s Peeps Die Set and then stamped the coordinating kitty stamp with a black copic friendly ink. I slightly colored the card base by inking it with Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress inks before popping the colored kitty on a foam tape and add the matching sentiment. I embellished the card with a saddle shimmer, a few dots made with a white gel pen and some sequins.

The list of copic markers used on this card: cat YR31-Y32-YR24-YR27; YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG25; V01-V04-V06; BG23; Y0000-Y00-Y11-Y13-Y18; RV10; YR16.
