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!!!

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?

#handmade cupcake toppers by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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

#handmade cupcake toppers by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


I mixed and matched a few NND sets creating these decorations. The cute muffins from Love Bites stamp set were my first choice and the coordinating Love Bites Die Set came super handy this time for a quick and easy die-cutting because I needed two identical die-cut pieces for every muffin topper. And so I prepared some stamped muffins along with a cute kitty from Sending Hugs stamp set (colored obviously like my sweet furry boy! LOL!!!) on Strathmore Bristol paper because it’s my favorite to use with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. Then I decided to add a romantic feel with a few hearts. These were super quick and easy to put together since I only had to pick a patterned heart stamps from Woodland Duos stamp set, make some stamping with colorful inks and die-cut with the coordinating Darling Hearts die set.

And since my sweet treats include strawberries and some fruit gelees, I made the coordinating decorations as well using Love & Chocolate stamp set and the coordinating dies plus Peppermint Die Set.

ipcsidebarbadge

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #48 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

Ciao #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The current challenge is “Use Stripes”! I’m leaving you below a beautiful inspiration graphic created for this challenge by Newton’s Nook Design’s and hope it will inspire you to play along! Just make a project including some stripes on it and paired with at least one Newton’s Nook Designs brand stamp or die and upload it here for a chance to win a store credit at Newton’s Nook Designs online shop. You can create a card, a tag, a scrapbook page, a treat bag or any other projects related to the papercrafting.

My today’s choice was Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set. I just can’t stop using this FANTASTIC set since it reminds me so much the place where I live and more this time the cute mischief has his big adventure right in Rome!

I played around the stripe theme in a few different ways starting by creating a striped heart background that looks exactly like the Italian flag! I used Darling Hearts die set making a mask out of a masking paper and ink blended Distress inks through the negative part of the mask applied to the background piece. Once removed, I replaced it with the positive part of the die-cut and added a very small amount of gray ink around the white part of the heart to give it a right shape and finished with some water droplets creating a splotchy look for more interest.

The cute kitty from Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set and Colosseum were stamped on a Bristol paper, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die-cut with the coordinating dies. The sentiment was heat embossed on a STRIPE of a black cardstock with a white embossing powder. And finally assembling all the element together, I added a striped pattern paper I had in my stash.
