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

For my stop on this hop I created a sweet and colorful birthday card featuring my ever favorite kitty Newton! He is an adorable sweet orange tabby cat and the inspiration for NND name and logo. Today I used a non traditional for a birthday theme Newton’s Christmas Cuddles stamp set that has a few super adorable and versatile images so it was super easy to interpret it in a different way by simply changing the color palette!

I obviously chose NND logo colors and colored the sweet kitty as Newton to give a personal touch to the card! I used my win win combo which consists of Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, Strathmore Bristol paper and a small water brush from Pentel. For the layout I used Frames & Flags die set and added a heat embossed sentiment from Newton’s Birthday Bash set. Finally a kitty paw pattern was added to the background through Pawprint stencil with Distress Oxide ink in Spiced Marmalade color and an ink blending tool!

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Woof Pack



Hello and welcome to the last day of the Newton’s Nook Designs February Release!

All the new February products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, February 16th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Best Friends Come in All Shapes & Sizes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Woof Pack stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

NND just cannot leave all dog fans disappointed and so after the incredible Company of Cats I’m sooooooo happy to present you a whole bunch of super cute puppies in the new stamp set called Woof Pack that coordinates perfectly with Frames & Flags die set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Woof Pack 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!

I was super excited to dive into dog breed searching and had so much fun coloring these cuties with my Zig markers. In case you are not a dog expert (like me! LOL!!!) here’s the reference to all the dogs from Woof Pack stamp set:

Left to Right:
Top row: Bulldog, Chihuahua, Boxer, Jack Russell Terrier
Second row: Poodle, Dachshund, Beagle, Basset Hound
Third row: Cocker Spaniel, Yorkshire Terrier, Boston Terrier
Corgi squeezed in between the rows
Bottom row: German Shepherd, Saint Bernard, Pug, Labrador Retriever

Best Friends Come in All Shapes & Sizes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Woof Pack stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since I was working with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, I chose once more Strathmore Bristol paper as blending goes super easy on this type of paper plus a small watercolor brush from Pentel. Once the all the dogs were colored, I used a stitched frame die from Frames & Flags die set to frame all the woof pack and then die cut the same frame once more directly on the front panel of the card base. I aligned the positive die cut piece with the frame window on the card base and adhered the dogs to the inner part of the card so that once opened you have the empty frame on the card front and the colored piece inside. The last step was a little bit more die cutting. I prepared three fish-tale banners with Frames & Flags die set and used one to stamp the sentiment from Woof Pack set while two others were simply colored with the same Zig markers I used before.

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Company of Cats



Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs February Release!

Are you ready for another FANTASTIC release filled with incredible and so various products that will suit any paper crafter?! So let’s start!

All the new February products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, February 16th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

You're the Coolest Cat of All #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Company of Cats stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m sure that all cat people just cannot resist to a super adorable Company of Cats from this new release! I’m head over heals on seeing so many super cute kitties! Plus I loooove big stamp sets: no masking and arranging and over thinking are needed! You’re immediately ready to sit down, relax and just enjoy the coloring process! This stamp doesn’t have dies, but it coordinates perfectly with Frames & Flags die set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Company of Cats 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 came with an interactive shaker card! I picked one of the sentiments that come with Company of Cats stamp set and decided to play around it! And so I colored all the stack of cute kitties in gray tones and then made pop the one with a funny face by giving him strong bright colors.

You're the Coolest Cat of All #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Company of Cats stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

When I work with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, my win win combo is Strathmore Bristol paper and a small watercolor brush from Pentel. Once all the furry company was colored, I went a little bit crazy and fussy cut the whole stamp following the stamp lines and then colored the edge with a black marker to hide any imperfection due to the fussy cutting. Assembling the card, I prepared a window frame for the shaker element by aligning and die cutting two frames from Frames & Flags die set. Then, before adhering the die cut frame on a foam tape, I filled the shaker area both with clear iridescent sequins and some colorful beads to remind the colors I used on the kitty. Finally I did more die cutting and put the coordinating sentiment on a fish-tale banner from Frames & Flags die set and finish by embellishing it with an yellowy-orange twine to add another pop of color to this clean card.

Newton’s Nook Designs Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

nndsweettreatsbloghop

Hello and welcome to the Newton’s Nook Designs 4th Annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

The Newton’s Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats – just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

#handmade cupcake toppers by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my stop on this hop I created some sweet decorations perfect to give an extra special touch for your San Valentine’s treats!!!

#handmade cupcake toppers by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


I mixed and matched a few NND sets creating these decorations. The cute muffins from Love Bites stamp set were my first choice and the coordinating Love Bites Die Set came super handy this time for a quick and easy die-cutting because I needed two identical die-cut pieces for every muffin topper. And so I prepared some stamped muffins along with a cute kitty from Sending Hugs stamp set (colored obviously like my sweet furry boy! LOL!!!) on Strathmore Bristol paper because it’s my favorite to use with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. Then I decided to add a romantic feel with a few hearts. These were super quick and easy to put together since I only had to pick a patterned heart stamps from Woodland Duos stamp set, make some stamping with colorful inks and die-cut with the coordinating Darling Hearts die set.

And since my sweet treats include strawberries and some fruit gelees, I made the coordinating decorations as well using Love & Chocolate stamp set and the coordinating dies plus Peppermint Die Set.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Deer Friend



Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs January Release!

Are you ready for another FANTASTIC release filled with incredible and so various products that will suit any paper crafter?! So let’s start!

All the new January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 19th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is kicking off a super adorable Deer Friend stamp set that has become one of my favorites because it’s filled with such DEER images and sentiments perfect both for special occasions and for a simply friend card. This set also has the coordinating dies that you can get apart.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Deer Friend 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!

For me the cute deers were just screaming for watercoloring. And so I first die-cut one from a watercolor paper using the coordinating dies along with a few tiny leaves and flowers because I find that it’s easily to align the negative part of the die into a stamping positioning tool and then make stamping! Plus it goes much faster in case you need to do multiple stamping of the same image!

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

While the watercolor elements were drying, I started working on the background. First of all I created the tag similar to what I did for the first day of the release, die-cutting the tag twice from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set using a light green and white cardstock, creating a fancy edge on the white one and then heat embossing the sentiment from the same Deer Friend stamp set. (In case you missed this post, you can catch it up right here.) Then I used just released Tumbling Hearts Stencil and create my own colorful embossing paste by simply mixing a regular white one with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. Assembling the card, I popped some elements onto a foam tape for a bit of dimension and added a little bow on the top part of the tag.
