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.

Light Up The Holiday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Lights stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today just to stay on topic I decided to put up some happy holidays lights on my card and play more with small, but super cute Holiday Lights stamp set. To start, I die cut a bunch of small lights using the coordinating Holiday Lights Die Set on Neenah Solar White paper. When you have to make multiple images the coordinating dies comes so handy and saves a lot of time! Since the light bulbs are such a simple shape, I decided to make no-line coloring with copic markers because it’s fun and allows you also to practice and try different color combos.

Light Up The Holiday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Lights stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stamped the light bulbs from Holiday Lights set with a light dye ink using my MISTI tool and the negative part of the die and finally colored all the lights with copic markers. Working on the background, I inked Gingham pattern with a very light gray ink and stamped in the center the matching sentiment from the same Holiday Lights stamp set. I traced two curved lines with a black marker to use as the light strings. Assembling the card, I popped all the colored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and added a generous coat of a clear shimmer pen.
As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors used on this project: COPIC T1- T3; V0000-V01-V04; RV00-RV10-RV02; RV21-RV23-RV25; R02-R05; Y00-Y11-Y15; G00-G02-G03; B0000-B00-B01-B02; YG00-YG01-YG13; YR00-YR02-YR04; BG10-BG11-BG13; BG0000-BG000-BG10-BG23; B21-B24-BG70.

If you’re still in doubt, I have another inspiration project for you featuring new small, but not less adorable Shrimp Cocktails stamp and the coordinating die sets. The mirror images inside this set inspired me for an interactive spinner card! So go ahead and watch the whole video tutorial below!
I used Strathmore Bristol paper and VersaFine Onyx Black ink for stamping. The shrimps were colored with Tombow markers.

An A2 size card base and an additional rectangle were prepared from Neenah Solar White 80 lb paper. I used the largest circle die from Frames Squared Die Set for the see through windows and the thing silver metallic thread from DMC brand for the interactive spinner mechanism. The inner pard of the card base was embellished with a light teal striped pattern paper from MFT Rainbow Stripes paper pad. And finally the sentiment from the same Shrimp Cocktails set was simply stamped on a piece of a light yellow cardstock.

DIY Sweet Treats Bags by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps and dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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

DIY Sweet Treats Bags by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps and dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I prepared paper bags from a plain white light weight cardstock. Before assembling the bags, I used a small heart from Woodland Duos stamp set for the first bag and a big love sentiment from Uplifting Wishes stamp set for the second one and repeatedly stamped them creating my own pattern paper. I used Hero Arts Pale Tomato and Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red dye inks for all the stamping on these projects.

Next I assembled both treat bags and decided to decorate them with a big heart and the word “LOVE” both die cut from Darling Hearts set. For a perfect match I used the same red dye inks that I’ve mentioned before and an ink blending tool to add colors on the hearts. Finally I adhered everything on one side of the treat bags along with a little bow. Easy peasy!!! What do you think?

You're Snow Much Fun #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mountain Moose stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today I’m playing with a few fun new goodies released by Newton’s Nook Designs during the Holiday period! So let’s take another look on the super adorable moose from Moose Mountain stamp set and amazing Petite Snow stencil!

You're Snow Much Fun #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mountain Moose stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on this project I started with a die cutting process and created a snow hill using Land Borders Die Set along with the coordinating cut from Moose Mountain Die Set. Next I aligned the negative part of the moose in my stamping positioning tool and added the coordinating image plus the sentiment both from the same Moose Mountain stamp set using a black copic friendly ink. Before proceeding with coloring, I prepared a regular A2 size card base, inked it with a light blue tones of Distress inks and then added a snow pattern through Petite Snow stencil using a white embossing paste. While the embossing paste was drying, I colored the moose with copic markers and finally popped everything together using a foam tape for a bit of dimension.
In case you’re interested, here’s the complete list of all the copic markers used here: B0000-B01-B02-B04-B05-B39; Y18-YR04-YR07-E09; E40-E42-E42-E43; T0-T1-T3; Y21-Y26.
