Today we are showcasing a brand new stamp set called SIMPLY RELATIVE. Well, many people when they are aproaching paper crafting hobbies always wonder what should I start with in supplies terms! Which stamp sets are the first to add to the stash! And I always recommend to get a good sentiment stamp set that can be used on any papercrafting projects! And I’m really happy that Newton’s Nook Design’s are coming with this fantastic one! I LOVE that it has big bold hand written words pared with a small simple ones. Really great design and infinite possibilities of use!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving this stamp set away to one lucky winner 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 with today! It’s another Mother’s Day project and hope it will inspire you! I played again with LOVELY BLOOMS stamp set from Day 2 of the NND April Release and combined it with SIMPLY RELATIVE set.

Well, this time I pull my watercolors and heat embossed the beautiful hydrangea flowers with a white embossing powder on a watercolor paper, die-cut them with the coordinating dies and then simply colored the images using wet on wet technique when you basically paint with clear water first and then add color on top. The color will spread across the wet area and you will get a typical watercolor look! The key here is to work at a singular spot at a time otherwise you risk to “contaminate” the whole image loosing highlights and shadows!

While the watercolored elements were drying, I worked on my card base! I arranged a bunch of sentiment stamps from SIMPLY RELATIVE set and inked them with a light gray ink. Then I emphasized some words with a black ink to form the “World’s Best Mother” sentence and finished the card by popping the flowers on a foam tape on top.

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release and Giveaway – Lovely Blooms

Happy Tuesday!

For My Amazing Mother #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookToday we are showcasing a brand new beautiful and very special stamp set called LOVELY BLOOMS along with the coordinating dies. I really love this one and I’m sure you’re going to see lots of my projects in the future featuring this stamp set! It has amazing floral stamps designed in a very simple, but so adorable way! It’s a very versatile set as well that can cover all the occasions! Plus it’s so fun to use!!!

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

Since Mother’s Day is approaching I decided to make a card for this occasion and hope it will inspire you! I thought it would be fun to use the coordinating dies to create a shaker element and fill it with “faux water”. And here’s how I made it!

For My Amazing Mother #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

First of all I stamped a bunch of flowers, stems and leaves from LOVELY BLOOMS stamp set, colored them with copic markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies. I also die-cut the jar element on a white A2 size panel. Then I adjusted the flower cluster popping some elements on a foam tape. At this point I also glued directly to my card base the bottom part of the stems so that they seem to be inside the jar.

For My Amazing Mother #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lovely Blooms Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I used a heat resistant acetate for the shaker part and heat embossed the jar stamp on it using Versafine ink and a clear embossing powder. Be sure to used a ton of antistatic powder for this or you will finish with the embossing powder sticking everywhere on you acetate! In case you don’t have the heat resistant acetate, you can simply use the one you have on hand and stamp the jar with any ink suitable for slick surfaces like StazOn, for example!

I added a foam tape to my front panel and filled with sequins the shaker area before adhering it to my card base! Finally I simply heat embossed the sentiment on a black card stock with a white embossing powder and added to my card.

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release and Giveaway – Beautiful Plumage

Hello and welcome!

The start of the week couldn’t be any perfect since the Newton’s Nook Designs Design Team is kicking off an April Release! And I’m sure you’re going to love it since it’s filled with a lot of beautiful amazing stamps and dies!

Be Colorful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Beautiful Plumage Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today we are showcasing a brand new BEAUTIFUL and unique stamp set called BEAUTIFUL PLUMAGE along with the coordinating dies. Jen from NND did it again and designed a fantastic stamp set from the beautiful swirls series! There’s no need to tell that you have almost infinite options of use on your cards, tags, scrapbook pages and any sort of paper crafting projects! Stamp it, emboss it, color it with any medium or add color with ink blending technique!|

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving this stamp set away to one lucky winner 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 with. I used the same idea and interpreted it with two different color media. I decided to make a spot coloring on my cards since it matches the “Be Colorful” sentiment in a perfect way!

Be Colorful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Beautiful Plumage Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

My first card is a copic colored one. I started by stamping a peacock stamp from BEAUTIFUL PLUMAGE stamp set with a copic friendly ink on a copic friendly paper, of course, and then die-cut some circles. I added color in a rainbow order only to the circle areas and popped them up on a foam tape.

Be Colorful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Beautiful Plumage Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I decided to add the matching rainbow sentiment and choice some similar dye inks from my stash. I used a post-it tape for masking my sentiment stamp and inked only a few letters at a time! Finally I added a few simple plumage images stamped in black on the right side of my card!

My second version is a watercolor one. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to add color this time pared with a waterproof ink and a watercolor paper.

Be Colorful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Beautiful Plumage Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I did the same colorful stamping for the sentiment. Then I popped up the whole panel on a foam tape and added a double layer to the circle areas. Of course, I just couldn’t skip shimmer and so added a generous coat of Wink of Stella brush pen in clear glitter finish to both cards!

Happy Belated Birthday #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Inside Scalloped Circles Dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Happy Friday!

Can you believe March is almost gone? But I have one last card to share with you today inspired by Mood Board for the Monthly Social Media Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! As always it’s so amazing! Love all the bright spring cheerful colors on it!

mar-mood-board

I decided to take on my first card inspired by this mood board and interpret it in a different way! Once again I used dies, but this time I played with Inside Scalloped Circle Dies and added custom colors to the flowers instead of using color cardstock.

Happy Belated Birthday #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Inside Scalloped Circles Dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I used the largest circle die from this set to create my card base and lovely flower and leaf shape dies to embellish it creating a flower wreath around a heat embossed sentiment from Simply Said stamp set. I die-cut all the element from Bristol paper since I were going to color with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and added color in a very simple non perfect splotchy watercolor way. I adhered all the element directly to the card base and used a few black accents to bring some contrast and interest.

Thinking Of You Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Thinking Of You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottage Garden Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

So happy you’ve joined me today! I’m bringing you this cheerful bright spring card featuring Cottage Garden stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs! This set is just fabulous! It is filled with lovely images inspired by Scandinavian folk art and can be used in so many different ways! It’s great for stamping, no-line coloring and different techniques such as emboss resist, for example! It’s fantastic on kraft card stock, vellum and can cover almost all the occasions!

Thinking Of You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottage Garden Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m not a great stamper, but this beautiful stamp set has really stolen my heart!  And so I decided to try a little bit of ombré stamping! The colors were inspired by amazing cottage gardens I saw on-line and the layout by the current Inky Paw Challenge!

Thinking Of You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottage Garden Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I chose some pink, bright pink and violet dye inks for this card and started by stamping a bunch of beautiful flowers. Then while the ink was still wet I reinked the bottom part of my stamps with a slightly darker shade and stamped on top to create an ombré look and give a little bit of depth and interest. I repeated the same process with the flower stems using green shades and then simply added a few light blue flowers since they are so small.

Once finished with stamping, I die-cut all the elements using the coordinating dies that come very handy for this set along with a curved line from Newton’s Nook Designs Land Borders die set. I popped up on a foam tape almost all the elements and arranged them around the fence. The sentiment comes from the same Cottage Garden set and was simply heat embossed with a white embossing powder!

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving me nice comments! I really appreciate your support!!!
