Valentine's Day #handmade Sweet Treats by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps and dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my stop on this hop I made a classic Italian Panna Cotta in jars decorated with some fresh strawberries. Panna cotta means ‘cooked cream’ in Italian. It includes very few ingredients, and is basically a simple mixture of cream, sugar, and vanilla. I decorated my sweet treats with Valentine’s Day themed hearts and small tags to give an extra special touch to the jars!

To start, I die cut a few round tags using Tags Times Two Die set from a plain red cardstock and a patterned paper that I found in my stash.

Some tags were decorated with a heat embossed “handmade with LOVE” sentiment from Made From Scratch stamp set and the others – with a simple die cut small heart that comes from Newton’s Valentine Die Set. I tied a bow on each couple of tags and fixed them on the jars with a glue dot.

The heart toppers come from Candy Hearts stamp and die sets. This stamp set has a bunch of tiny sentiments that fit perfectly inside the open heart shape. I heat embossed a few random stamps on the same red cardstock I used before for the tags and stamped the others with a dye red ink on a plain white paper. I die cut all the hearts using the coordinating Candy Hearts Die Set and added them to the wooden sticks, fixing with another die cut heart glued from the back side.

And here’s the recipe of this simple dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 6 g/0.21 oz. fish gelatin in leaves/sheets
  • 500 ml cream
  • 80 g/2,82 oz. granulated sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean

To start, place fish gelatin leaves (or sheets) into cold water and let them sit for a few minutes to soften. In the meantime, split vanilla bean into two parts with a knife. Heat cream, sugar, and vanilla together in a saucepan until hot (without letting the mixture boil) and the sugar is dissolved. Once hot, add the softened gelatin and immediately whisk until smooth. Make sure the mixture is completely smooth. Let the mixture cool down a little and then pour it into the jars. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until completely set. Top with fresh strawberries, berries or berry sauce.

Big Wishes Birthday Boy Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

BIG Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Quarry stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

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

The idea for this project came from my little nephew. He is fond of trucks and so I thought to stretch new amazing love themed Love Quarry stamp set and use it for a boy card. To start, as usual I die cut three trucks and a few traffic cones using Love Quarry Die Set and Strathmore Bristol paper. I stamped the coordinating open images from Love Quarry stamp set helping myself with the negative parts of the dies for a perfect alignment into the MISTI tool. Next I colored the stamps with water based markers.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used here: TOMBOW MARKERS N25, N79, 055, 062, 452, 856, 905, 993; ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKER n.61 Light Brown.

BIG Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Quarry stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I built a simply inked background for the trucks using Hills & Grass stencil with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink for the ground portion and Clouds stencil with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink for the sky. I prepared a regular A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) card base and trimmed the inked panel slightly smaller. Before popping all the elements on a foam tape, I added a “BIG Wishes” sentiment from Holding Happiness stamp set since it fits nicely the truck theme.

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

You Deserve A Whole Latte Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Later Gator stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

On my stop for this hop I’m sharing a cutie from Later Gator stamp set. I kept everything very simple today and used only one stamp set plus the coordinating dies. To start, I die cut the gator and a few accessories using Later Gator SugarCut on Neenah Solar White paper, stamped the coordinating open images from Later Gator stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with copic markers.

As always here’s the complete list of all the colors used here: COPIC YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG23-YG25-G07; V01-V04-V06; BG10-BG15-BG23; C1-C3.

Then I inked a matching background for my gator with Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet Distress inks and added a few tiny shimmer droplets and some colorful splashes for more interest. I split the sentiment from the same Later Gator stamp set into two parts: heat embossing the first one and simply stamping the second one. Finally I assemble everything on a regular A2 size white card base with a bit of dimension.

Cheers Card For SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #63

Cheers #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cheers To You stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

Today is my turn to get you inspired for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up Challenge! I came up with quite simple all occasions card, making a bit of die cutting and heat embossing!

In case you want to play along, as well, here’s how you can do that: you have all month to play along and make a project using just the inspiration, just the sketch or Mix it Up and use both! It is totally up to you! You can find all the rules at SugarPea blog right here!!!

To start, I heat embossed two champagne glasses on vellum from Cheers To You stamp set with a Fine Gold Embossing Powder. I used the same embossing powder on a piece of a white cardstock to create my own metallic gold paper for the champagne bottle details and then die cut all the elements with Cheers To You SugarCut.

Cheers #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cheers To You stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

The background was inked with Simon Hurley Overzealous, Simon Says Stamp Fern and Vintage Photos Distress inks. I heat set the background and then die cut a scalloped frame from Card Front Element Builder to match the sketch. I also added some white and dark green splatters and heat embossed elements from Cheers To You stamp set. The die cut sentiment comes from Cheers SugarCut. I prepared the word part from a plain white cardstock and the shadow element from vellum. Finally I assembles everything together skipping any other embellishment.

Friendship Sentiments

Friends Words With Shadows SugarCut

Interlocking Circles SugarCut

And here’s what I came up with for you today! A sweet friend card with a bit of inking and die cutting! To start, I heat embossed one part of the sentiment from Friendship Sentiments set on a narrow strip of a black cardstock. Then I die cut the word “friend” using Friends Words With Shadows SugarCut set and glued two pieces together to form the white word with the black shadow part. At this point, I also die cut tree times Interlocking Circles and stacked all the layers together.

The World Needs More You FRIEND #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Friendship Sentiments stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Since my intention was to make an inked background, I started with a piece of Watercolor Cardstock from Tim Holtz because this paper was meant to work with Distress inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seeds, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress inks for my blending. I moved back and force with a blending tool a few times layering the colors and overlapping them a bit to achieve a smooth look. Then I added a few tiny water droplets and some colorful splashes on top for more interest. Finally assembled all the elements together by gluing the Interlocking Circles directly to the background and the die cut work “friend” on top of the circles with Multi Medium Matte liquid adhesive.
