Happy Valentine's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There would be no perfect January release without Valentine’s Day theme! Right?! That’s why I’m super excited to share with you the adorable owls from Love Owl-ways stamp set! In case you’re interested, this set comes with the coordinating dies!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a new Love Owl-ways stamp sets away a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

And here’s my first project featuring the cutie owl from Love Owl-ways stamp set with the balloons! You know that I’m a great fan of the balloons for all the occasions!!!

Happy Valentine's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since my choice in terms of color media was on watercolor markers, I went for my favorite Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx black ink for stamping since it’s waterproof and a small water brush from Pentel. I first made die cutting using Love Owl-ways and Playful Pandas Die Sets and then stamped the coordinating images from Love Owl-ways and Playful Pandas stamp sets.

As always I’m leaving you the colors I used on this project: TOMBOW n.026, n.703, n.723, n.761, n.815, n.835, n.873, n.905, n.977.

Assembling all the elements, I give a little bit of texture to the card base, embossing a white embossing paste on top through Tumbling Hearts stencil. Next I popped the colored stamps on a foam tape and have a little happy accident on adding a shiny coat of Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops that cracked, but gave me a super fun texture! I really like how it turned out and wonder if any of you had the same experience with Nuvo Drops? Finally, a heat embossed sentiment from the same Love Owl-ways stamp set on a piece of a black cardstock finished this project.

I just cannot stop playing more with the beautiful owls and here’s my second project!

My Heart Is OWL Yours #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with the same materials that I used on a previous card except of Sending Hugs stamp and die sets used to create a bunch of envelopes.

I’m leaving you all the exact number of watercolor markers used here as well: TOMBOW n.025, n.090, n.703, n.723, n.761, n.815, n.835, n.873, n.905, n.969.

My Heart Is OWL Yours #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I decided to keep everything clean and simple. A regular A2 size card base was masked and inked with a light lilac ink. Next I added a sentiment towards the top right corner by simply stamping it from the same Love Owl-ways stamp set with the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink I used for the images for a perfect match. Finally I popped all the watercolored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few crystal clear sequins.

All Occasion Winter Card (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Baby, It's Cold Outside #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more impatient to share that I’m joining Purple Onion Designs Design Team! Yaaay!!! I’m so trilled to work with their gorgeous and whimsical stamps and hope to bring you lots of inspiration!

Baby, It's Cold Outside #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

I’m starting with a “stretch your craft supplies” post working more on the holiday stamps since, in my opinion, they can really cover every winter occasion. I used three super adorable critters from Maggie, Curly, Blizzard sets and stamped them on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. Purple Onion Designs has some really amazing stamps for building scenes and so I chose Small Winter Picket Fence and Snowy View stamps. This time in term of materials my choice was on a regular watercolor paper since I decided to paint the background and that certainly require more water than the small images. Finally I could enjoy the coloring process.

As always here’re all the exact colors I used here: Tombow Markers n.N15, n.N65, n.N95, n.126, n.133, n.451, n.491, n.515, n.533, n.553, n.636, n.703, n.850, n.991, n.969.

Baby, It's Cold Outside #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

I let air dry all the watercolor pieces and then started assembling everything with a bit of dimension. I also added a matching bright blue sentiment from Holiday Blurbs I set. Last but not least, I added a small touches of Nuvo White Drops on the background to emulate the falling snow effect.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Tatiana

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Caffeinated Cats

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs January release! Thanks so much for joining me! Hope you’ll be inspired by today’s project!

All the new January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 18th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Good Days Starts #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Caffeinated Cats stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is showcasing you a stunning addition to the full card front collection of stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs! And so let me introduce you a wonderful Caffeinated Cats stamp set that contains a really purr-rect blend: coffee, cats and relaxing coloring!!! I’m sure you’ll love this cutie as much as I’m!!!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a new Caffeinated Cats 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!

Since I made the coloring for this card on the go, my choice was obviously on Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx black ink for stamping, a small water brush from Pentel and Tombow markers!

Here’re all the exact colors used here: TOMBOW n.N75, n.126, n.133, n.703, n.723, n.850, n.933, n.969, n.977, n.985, n.992.

Good Days Starts #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Caffeinated Cats stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once finished with coloring, I framed the adorable image using Frames & Flags Die Set and popped it on a light pink card base trimmed and scored to the regular A2 size. Since I believe that there would be no perfect morning for me without my sweet kitties, I decided to get creative with the sentiment: I trimmed the “&” sign from the sentiment that comes from the same Caffeinated Cats set and paired it with the word “cats” cut from another stamp set called Company Of Cats! Both parts were heat embossed with a white embossing powder on a piece of a black cardstock and finally added to the card.

Stretch Your Holiday Stamps Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Eskimo Kisses #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Eskimo Kisses stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today and to share with you some ideas how you can stretch your holiday stamps and use them all year round!

Today I played with a super adorable Eskimo Kisses stamp set filled with lots of fun critters and chose two kissing penguins since they go perfectly with Valentine’s Day that is approaching so fast! And a few “love” theme cards come handy in the stash! Right?!

Eskimo Kisses #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Eskimo Kisses stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

To start I stamped a few images on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof, colored them with water based markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around.

Here’s the complete list of all TOMBOW markers I used here: n.N79, n.025, n.090, n.133, n.195, n.565, n.606, n.620, n.723, n.725, n.933, n.985.

Eskimo Kisses #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Eskimo Kisses stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

The change of a color combo is the most easy way to make your stamps look differently from what they originally were meant to be! I prepared a pinky-orange shaker window by ink blending Fossilized Amber and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks on the card front and die cutting a round circle from Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts on an additional white panel, trimmed slightly smaller than the regular A2 size card base. I filled the shaker window with some heart shaped sequins and then sealed everything. Finally I popped the colored elements on a foam tape and added the heat embossed sentiment from the same Eskimo Kisses stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Holiday Card Series 2018 – A Flurry Of Warm Wishes Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Flurry Of Warm Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowflakes stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Happy Christmas to Everyone!
Today I’ve popped in for a very quick post just to wish any of you a peaceful holiday season and share this simple watercolor card!

Flurry Of Warm Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snowflakes stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Creating this card, I played a bit with my regular tube watercolors and started working with two primary shades: red and blue. I mixed a few custom colors and applied them in layers on a piece of a cold pressed watercolor paper. Next I die cut three snowflakes from SugarPea Designs Snowflake Tag set, put a generous coat of Multi Medium Mat adhesive on top and covered with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter for some extra texture. The matching sentiment from Flurry Of Warm Wishes stamp set was heat embossed on a purple stripe of paper shaped into a fish tale banner. Finally some clear sequins finished the whole project.

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
