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.

Thanksgiving Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Gather Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cutie Pie die set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

Today I’ve popped in to wish all US friends a very happy Thanksgiving with a sweet card made with amazing stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs.

Gather Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cutie Pie die set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

This simple project is base on Thanksgiving themed die cuts from Cutie Pie SugarCut. I prepared a few from Neenah Solar White paper and inked them with Distress inks in Fossilized Amber, Antique Linen, Carved Pumpkin, Wild Honey and Candied Apple colors. Before popping the inked elements on a foam tape I added a sentiment on regular A2 size card base combining Sweet As Pie stamp set and the same Cutie Pie SugarCut. Last but not least I embellished the whole card front with a few clear sparkling sequins adhered with Multi Medium Matte.

The last day has reserved us more super adorable snowmen in new Frosty Folks stamp set. In case you’re interested there’s the coordinating Frosty Folks Die Set too.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Frosty Folks stamp set to a lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!


And here’s what I came up today! I started with Neenah Solar White paper and Frosty Folks Die Set to get the folks’ shape. Next I stamped the snowmen from Frosty Folks stamp set with MFT Black Hybrid ink and colored the whole image with copic markers.

These are all the colored used on the project: B21-B24; BG10-BG11-BG15; R22-R24-R29; V01-V04-V06; Y00-Y11-Y15; T0-T1-T3-T5; RV10-RV02-RV04; R20; YR000-YR02-YR04.

Winter Is Warmer Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Frosty Folks stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I prepared a regular A2 size card base and noticed that the snowmen image was quite big. So I decided to use it a central element and add a clean and simple background by stamping light gray snowflakes on the background from Frosty Folks and Newton’s Toboggan stamp sets. Then I grounded the folks by adding a die cut snow slope from Land Borders Die Set. Last but not least I stamped the matching sentiment, popped the frosty folks on a foam tape and added a generous coat of clear shimmer on all the accessories.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ November Reveal and Giveaway – Day 3 – Penguin Pile & Let it Snow


Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook November release! So glad you’ve joined me today!

All the new November products will be available for purchase on Friday, November 15th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Piles Of Warm Winter Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Penguin Pile stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m so happy to reveal you another adorable trio from new Penguin Pile stamp set. This little set comes with the coordinating Penguin Pile Die. And more… we also have amazing new Let it Snow mini stamp set with a gorgeous winter sentiment that can be paired with some cute critters or used on it’s own.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Penguin Pile stamp set to a lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

My first example features the cutest Penguin Pile stamp set. As always, to start I die cut the penguin shape from Strathmore Bristol paper using Penguin Pile Die Set. Next I stamped the open image from Penguin Pile stamp set using VersaFine Onyx black ink. I let the ink air dry and colored the penguins with watercolor markers.

And here’s the complete list of the colors used on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N25, N79, 098, 133, 173, 443, 526, 743, 761, 772, 873, 993.

Piles Of Warm Winter Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Penguin Pile stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I decided to built a winter mountain scene on the top part of the card front using new just release yesterday Mountains Stencil. First I inked the mountain shape using Simon Hurley Woof! ink. Next I added a sky portion using Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks. Finally I dressed the mountains with a snow using a white embossing paste. I heat set the paste to speed up the drying process and give more fun texture to the background. As a final touch I flicked a few droplets of a diluted white gouache for the falling snow effect. Before popping the penguin pals, I simply stamped the sentiment.

Piles Of Warm Winter Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Penguin Pile stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Next comes Let it Snow mini stamp set. I decided to use it on it’s own and build a shaker window around the sentiment filled with sequins to recreate the fun interactive element.

Let It Snow #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Let It Snow stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I trimmed an A2 size rectangle that measures 5 ½” x 4 ¼”. I applied NND Snowfall stencil on top and inked through Cracked Pistachio Distress ink using a Mini Ink Blending Tool. I shifted the stencil without cleaning and inked it again using more dark Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink. Finally I added a few single snowflakes using Blueprint Sketch color paying attention to leave the center light.

Let It Snow #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Let It Snow stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stamped Let it Snow sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and die cut a circle around so that I could build a shaker window. Before sealing the shaker part, I filled the open “snow” word with Star Dust Stickles Glitter Glue from Ranger.

Merry & Bright Watercolor Card For SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #61

Merry & Bright #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Flurry Of Warm Wishes 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 watercolor card featuring a few lovely new and old products!

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!!!

I started with Arches Cold Pressed Watercolor paper, regular watercolors, water and a few brushes. I played around and came up with a splotchy watercolor background inspired by the color combo from the sketch. I ran it with Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles SugarCut into my Big Shot Machine to achieve a faux stitched panel that was popped on a regular A2 size kraft card base.

Next I die cut three snowflakes from glitter paper using Snowflake Tag Die along with Merry Word. I stacked three layers of the sentiment die one on top of the other and glued everything on the watercolor background with Multi Medium Matte adhesive. Last but not least, I heat embossed the second part of the sentiment on a piece of a black cardstock using Flurry Of Warm Wishes stamp set and popped it on a fam tape. A few matching sequins added a finish touch to this card.
