Time To Take On The World #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Graduation stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

NND Design Team is kicking off this week with another super adorable Newton stamp set called Newton’s Graduation that has a couple of sweet kitty images and some super fun matching sentiments. This set comes with the coordinating dies. Plus NND is adding a super versatile die set to their collection named Essential Alphabet Die set and as you can guess it allows you die-cut all the letters and numbers! This set is just perfect to customize any of your projects and give them a personalized twist!

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

Of corse, I just had to get my hands on both new products: Newton’s Graduation stamp and Essential Alphabet Die sets. And here’s what I came up with!

Time To Take On The World #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Graduation stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with Bristol paper from Strathmore brand, first die-cut using the coordinating Newton’s Graduation die set and then stamped the cute kitty with a globe. Once the ink was dried, I made a simple watercoloring with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. I set aside the watercolor piece and started working on the background die-cutting from Essential Alphabet Die set some letters on a masking paper. I placed the letters into the desirable pattern towards the bottom right corner of the card base, masked the card edges and applied Distress Oxide ink in Mermaid Lagoon color with an ink blending tool. I also spritzed a few tiny water droplets on top and lift the masked letters from the background achieving a fun pattern. Assembling the card I popped Newton on a foam tape, heat embossed the sentiment from the same Newton’s Graduation set on fish-tale banner die-cut with Frames & Flags die set and finally added a few matching sequins.

Easy Interactive Spinner Card With Coordinating Dies (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

For Your Special Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holding Happiness stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtons

Happy Thursday!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a fun and cute interactive spinner card!

For Your Special Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holding Happiness stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtons

Well, today I came up with the idea how to stretch the coordinating dies and get more use out of them. I played with the super adorable Holding Happiness stamp set from NND March release and the coordinating Holding Happiness Die Set of course. Since the lady with a giant birthday cake is almost symmetrical, I thought that it would be super easy to make an interactive birthday card. In fact, I didn’t have to do the mirror stamping in this case, but only die-cut and stamped twice the same image.

For Your Special Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holding Happiness stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtons

Once finished coloring both stamps with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, I started working on the background and prepared an A2 size card base plus another additional panel to go on top. Next I made a simple non distracting pattern, blending Distress Oxide inks in Fossilized Amber and Worn Lipstick colors trough Bubbly stencil. I die-cut a circle on both layers and glued together two colored images and with a tiny twine between the layers. Finally I adhered the patterned panel to the card base and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Holding Happiness stamp set I used before.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Friday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you a fun idea on how you can stretch your holiday stamps and dies! Curious?

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This year I decided to make a stamp focus card series and invite you to get another look on the crafty products you already have in your stash or bring more ideas on the same stamp or die set so that you can decide if you really want to get it! Today I would like to reuse holiday stuff and reinterpret it in a different way! And so I’m starting with a super adorable Newton’s Christmas Cuddles set from NND. This set is meant to be a holiday one, but the cute images are so versatile that you can easily cover many other occasions. I played with the lovely couple of kitties and transformed them into a love or Valentine’s Day card.

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The kitties were stamped on a watercolor paper with a black waterproof ink, colored with regular watercolors and finally fussy cut right against the stamp lines. Then I built a shaker element reusing a Snow Globe Shaker Die Set and filling it with a tiny die-cut hearts from Darling Hearts Die Set, sparkling sequins and beads because I loved the idea of falling hearts on the love card. And since I already had Darling Hearts Die Set on my desk, I die-cut the work “love” from a bright pink cardstock and used it as the sentiment.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day! And, please, let me know if you’re interested to see more posts from my Stamp Focus Card Series!!!

Stretch Your Dies Card Series – Snow Globe Shaker Die (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Joy #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Thursday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you another look at just released amazing Snow Globe Shaker die set and some great supplies for shaker cards that NND carries now in their online shop!

Joy #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


I’m really in LOVE with these fantastic dies! So many possibilities and so much fun to play! And so my first project is a show globe clear shaker tag! What do you think about this idea? I die-cut all the elements from Snow Globe Shaker die twice since I needed to cover both front and back. Then I prepared two die-cut frames from the double sided adhesive foam, but you can definitely use only one layer instead since this foam is quite thick and it is really a must-have! Once I ran it back and forth in my Big Shot with a platform closed for the wafer thin dies, I finished to have a perfectly die-cut frame that held its shape as well. And don’t throw away any extra piece you left with since you can use them for the snow globe base. Assembling the tag I filled it with snowflakes that were also die-cut using the same Snow Globe Shaker die set and finished with the shiny die-cut sentiment “JOY”.

Creating my second project which is turned out as a card, I used the same Snow Globe Shaker die, but in a very different way! I started building my background first by ink blending Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks. While the inks were still wet I put on top new just released Snowfall stencil and dabbed off some color with a wet baby wipe. I purposely was not very precise since I wanted to achieve a little bit splotchy distress look.Joy #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

While the background was drying, I die-cut some snowflakes and the sentiment from a vellum and a glitter paper and finally assembled everything popping the background on a foam tape for a bit of dimension!

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

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!!!
