Happy Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Birthday Trio stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

We’re kicking off this week with two new absolutely adorable birthday stamp sets that will satisfy both cat and dog people. I know that all of you are great fans of cute critters and so let me introduce you Newton’s Birthday Trio and Paw-some Birthday stamp sets. Both of them come with the coordinating dies. Plus NND has designed an amazing Balloons Stencil to go on your birthday cards because there would be no perfect birthday without the balloons! Right?! LOL!!!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving both new stamp sets away to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

My first card features Birthday Trio stamp and die sets! To start, I die cut the fun kitties from Strathmore Bristol paper, stamped with a waterproof black ink and colored with watercolor markers.

Here’re all the exact colors of TOMBOW markers I used on this project: n.N79, n.055, n.126, n.133, n.452, n.620, n.636, n.676, n.703, n.725, n.873, n.899, n.946, n.947, n.977, n.991.

For the background I inked a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock with Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress inks. Next I trimmed an A2 size rectangle from a light gray cardstock and partially die cut a circle window inside. I put the inked piece underneath the die cut window and applied new Balloons Stencil on top, transferring the pattern with a white embossing paste directly on both layers. Once the embossing paste was dry, I could assemble all the elements with a bit of dimension.

Working on Paw-some Birthday stamp and die sets, I switched to copic markers, Neenah Solar White paper and Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Once again I first made the die cutting using the coordinating Paw-some Birthday Die Set and then stamped the coordinating images from Paw-some Birthday stamp set and colored everything with copic markers.

As always, here’s the complete list of all the COPIC markers used here: Y32-YR21-YR24-YR27; V0000-V01-V05-V12; BV000-BV01-FV2; YG11-YG41-G02; Y0000-Y00-Y11-Y13-Y18; BG10-BG11-BG23; T0-T1-T3; R21-R22; RV13; E30.

For the background I used the same Balloons Stencil, but achieved different look by inking the card base made from Neenah Solar White paper with a very light hand and next coming with stronger colors on top through Balloons Stencil. This time my choice was on Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade Distress inks.

Personalized Birthday Card Plus Video (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

It's Your Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamp and die sets 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 my personalized birthday card!

It's Your Birthday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamp and die sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I mixed and matched a lot of fun stuff creating this project! First of all I made my own stencil using the balloon die from Fabulous Frenchies die set. Next I added balloon strings using the coordinating Fabulous Frenchies stamp set and a partial masking technique. You can watch all the process right here.

For the background I used Mustard Seeds, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks. The big balloon in the center of the card front comes from Balloon Shaker die set. You can easily give a personalized twist to your cards using alphabet and number dies. My “18” comes from Essential Alphabet die set. The tiny heat embossed sentiment is from cute Newton’s Birthday Bash stamp set. And finally for the accessories I used Fabulous Frenchies stamp and die sets (the same from the background) plus Papa Bear stamp and die sets and Cosmic Newton die set for tiny stars.

As promised, here’re all the exact copic markers I used on my card: RV21, Y02, YG01, BV02.

Now let’s see today’s fantastic introductions that include Birthday Balloons stamp set and Party Balloon SugarCut.


I’m very excited about today’s reveals because there’s something about balloons that makes me happy and transforms an ordinary day into a party one. The little Party Balloon SugarCut couldn’t be any perfect and clever. In fact it can be easily used on its own or pared with Birthday Balloons stamp set.

Let's Party #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Birthday Balloons stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Here’s how I proceeded working on this card. First of all, I die cut some balloons from Neenah Solar White paper using Party Balloon SugarCut, of course. Next I heat embossed the fun patterns from Birthday Balloons set on a few balloons along with the matching sentiment. I reached for Distress inks and an ink blending tool to add colors to the die cuts keeping my hand a bit more heavy towards the bottom part of the balloons and going more easy towards the top to make them look tridimensional. Here’re all the colors I used here: Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers. Finally I prepared an A2 size white card base and popped all the elements on a foam tape just for something little extra.
