This set is really fantastic and unique! Funny cute little unicorn’s faces just make me smile very time I look at them plus this stamp set has some fabulous sentiments!

I put in work my watercolors this time and did a splotchy non-perfect watercolor background after heat embossing some clouds with white embossing powder on a watercolor paper. The emboss images resist to the color and give you an interesting, but non-distractive background.

The unicorns were stamped on a watercolor paper as well. I decided to add a rainbow pattern to them so that they would match the rainbow stamp. Assembling the card I put two raised panels on both sides of my card base and popped the colored images on foam tape. A few clear sparkling matching sequins finished this clean and simple card!

That all for today! Hope you like the cute magical unicorns and my card! As always thanks so much for stopping by! If you want to see these cuties in action again, please, check my sneak peek post here!

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

I played with my watercolors this time. I started by stamping Newton under the umbrella with a waterproof ink on a watercolor paper. Once finished watercolor part, I die-cut it with the coordinating die and proceed to work on the background. I made a few elements to put together using ink smooching. It very easy and fun technique!!! All you need is a piece of clear plastic sheet. You can definitely recycle a plastic packaging for this purpose. Smooch the ink on you plastic piece, spritz it with some water and apply the ink to your project.

I die-cut a wave border using the negative part of the NND Sky Borders Die revealed on Monday and finished adhering some elements on a foam tape. Of course, couldn’t skip a little bit of shimmer and a few matching sequins!

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release and Giveaway – Cottage Garden

Happy Wednesday and welcome!

So happy you’ve joined us today for Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs March Release!

Many Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottage Garden Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today NND Design Team is showcasing a brand new beautiful so amazing and unique stamp set called Cottage Garden along with the coordinating dies.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving this 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!


This set is just fabulous and can be used in so many different ways! It’s great for stamping, no-line coloring and different techniques such as emboss resist, for example! It’s fantastic on kraft card stock, vellum and can cover almost all the occasions! I really love it!

Many Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottage Garden Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I decided to make a “thanks” card since there would never be enough in my stash and started by stamping with dye inks a bunch of flowers and leaves on a white card stock. My color choice was on pinky-peachy, orange and yellowy-green shades. Once finished stamping, I die-cut all the elements with the coordinating dies that come very handy for this set since it has so many little stamps with round shapes. I also die-cut a tag from NND Tags Times Two Die set and started arranging all the elements on a light gray base.

Many Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottage Garden Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I popped up almost all the die-cuts on a foam tape to bring some dimension and a little extra something to the card, but if you are worried about shipping, you can definitely adhere everything flat. And finally I added a bow made out of a paper string and a few clear crystal drops from Nuvo.

Craftin Desert Divas – March Release Sneak Peek – Happy Trails

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!

I’ve popped in to share my last, but not least sneak peek project made for Craftin Desert Divas March Release. How fun and cute is this alligator from Happy Trails stamp set!!! It makes me giggle every time I look at it!

Miss You #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Trails stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I think when you have such an adorable stamp there is no need to add much to your card! So I grabbed this cutie, stamped and colored with copic markers. Please scroll down to see all the exact copic numbers I used.

Miss You #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Trails stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I hand cut a curve line out from a masking paper, applied it towards the bottom of my front panel and did a soft ink blending to create a very simple background. Then I stamped  with a gray dye ink a bunch of suitcases making a matching pattern to add on my card. These stamps come from the same Happy Trails stamp set.

Miss You #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Trails stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Finally I added the sentiment, popped up the colored part on a foam tape and adhered a few matching sequins.

That all for today! Hope you like this clean and simple card! As always thanks so much for stopping by! And please, check Craftin Desert Divas Event Page on Facebook for more inspiration and awesome giveaways!

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release and Giveaway – Lovable Laundry and Stitched Onesie Die

Happy Tuesday!

So happy you joined us today for the second day of the Newton’s Nook Designs March Release!

Welcome Baby #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovable Laudry Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today NND Design Team is showcasing a brand new super sweet and absolutely adorable stamp set called Lovable Laundry along with the coordinating Stitched Onesie die.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving this 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!

This baby set couldn’t be more adorable and so I just couldn’t leave you with only one example! Plus I would never choose between baby boy or girl card so I made both!

Welcome Baby #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovable Laudry Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I thought it would be fun to use the same card sketch and interpret it in two different ways. On the baby boy card I stamped a few cute little onesies with a black waterproof ink on a watercolor paper. Made a super simple light wash of watercolors trying to keep it very soft. I also added a little bit of shading around the stamped onesies.

Welcome Baby #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovable Laudry Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Assembling the card, I adhere on a foam tape a scalloped stitched white panel that was die-cut with NND new Sky Borders die releases just yesterday. And finished with a few non distractive embellishments.

Welcome Baby #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovable Laudry Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

And here’s the baby girl version. I used once more Sky Borders die for the take on the sketch, but started with stamping a bunch of small hearts from NND Sweater Weather stamp set for the bottom section and a cute onesie with hearts. I used the same watercolor paper on this card and only one pink shade color. The gradient look was achieved by adding different amount of water: more concentrate color gives a more vibrant look, white a more diluted color becomes more soft.

Welcome Baby #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovable Laudry Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I used Stitched Onesie die to die-cut my stamp. This die is SO ADORABLE and CLEVER done!!! It can be used on its own or combining with the stamps from Lovable Laundry stamp set! In this case you will finish to have a faux stitching inside the stamp that looks really gorgeous! I’m in love with this die!!!

Welcome Baby #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovable Laudry Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

My original plan was to add two little cloth-pins to the onesie, but they were too big for this card so I simply added two paper bows to “anchor” the stamped image on my card front.
