Happy Friday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you a fun idea on how you can stretch your holiday stamps and dies! Curious?

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This year I decided to make a stamp focus card series and invite you to get another look on the crafty products you already have in your stash or bring more ideas on the same stamp or die set so that you can decide if you really want to get it! Today I would like to reuse holiday stuff and reinterpret it in a different way! And so I’m starting with a super adorable Newton’s Christmas Cuddles set from NND. This set is meant to be a holiday one, but the cute images are so versatile that you can easily cover many other occasions. I played with the lovely couple of kitties and transformed them into a love or Valentine’s Day card.

The kitties were stamped on a watercolor paper with a black waterproof ink, colored with regular watercolors and finally fussy cut right against the stamp lines. Then I built a shaker element reusing a Snow Globe Shaker Die Set and filling it with a tiny die-cut hearts from Darling Hearts Die Set, sparkling sequins and beads because I loved the idea of falling hearts on the love card. And since I already had Darling Hearts Die Set on my desk, I die-cut the work “love” from a bright pink cardstock and used it as the sentiment.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day! And, please, let me know if you’re interested to see more posts from my Stamp Focus Card Series!!!

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge December 2017

'Tis The Season #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winter Village Digital Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Friday!

It’s time to play again with the Monthly Social Media Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! And here’s another inspirational project based on the beautiful December mood board!

Today’s card turned out almost one layer. I played with the gorgeous Winter Village Digital Stamp Set, printed a simple frosty scene on a laser printer and just enjoyed coloring it with copic markers. In case you’re interested, please, check all the exact copic numbers I used here at the bottom of this post.

Once finished with coloring, I added a sentiment from Holiday Sweaters stamp set stamping it directly on my panel with a black ink. And finally added a frosty feeling applying first Multi Medium Matte adhesive and then sprinkled on top a clear glitter. I set everything aside and let air dry before shaking off the excess and gluing the colored scene to the regular A2 size card base.

Here Comes Santa Paws Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Here Comes Santa Paws #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Thursday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you another look at the super fun and cute Santa Paws Newton stamp set!

Here Comes Santa Paws #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

You probably know that I’m a huge fan of the cute mischief designed by NND and love to color him like my kitties. And so I just couldn’t let Santa Paws Newton stamp set die in my stash without a chance to appear on this year holiday cards.

Here Comes Santa Paws #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Creating this cheerful and bright watercolor card, I played with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. I used this particular color media a lot during last year and figured out my win win combo that gives me the best results: Bristol paper from Strathmore brand plus a watercolor brush from Pentel. While the watercolor images were drying, I prepared a simple layout die-cutting a scalloped rectangle from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set and adding a little bit of texture and interest with a white embossing paste applied through Snowfall stencil. While the embossing paste was still wet, I sprinkled a clear glitter on top and let everything air dry before removing the excess. This further step gave a frosty and snowy feeling to the card. Finally I assembled all the elements with a bit of dimension popping up the images on a foam tape.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Cold Days Need Hot Coffee (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Cold Days Need Hot Coffee #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cup Of Cocoa stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

Sharing today a simple watercolor card made for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!!


I played with fantastic new Cup of Cocoa stamp set from Newton’s nook Designs and transformed it into a coffee one!!! LOL!!!

Cold Days Need Hot Coffee #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cup Of Cocoa stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Here’s how I made it! First of all I stamped with a waterproof black ink a bunch on cups on a piece of a watercolor paper, taped it to the board to prevent from warping along with another little piece of the same watercolor paper that I used for the banner lately. I used Cobalt Teal Blue and Burnt Umber Extra Fine Watercolors from Daniel Smith and Opera Rose shade from Winson & Newton. Once the paper was dry, I die-cut all the elements for my layout using NND Frames And Flags die set. Then I trimmed apart the “Cold Days Need Hot Cocoa” sentiment from Cup of Cocoa set and added the missing word “Coffee” from Cuppa Cactus stamp set splitting apart once again the original sentiment. Finally I assembled everything giving a bit of dimension with a foam tape and decorating the card front with a few matching sequins.

Stretch Your Supplies Card Series (ft. Craftin Desert Divas)

'Tis The Season #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sorted Shapes stencil by Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Saturday!

I’m so excited to guest on Crafting Desert Divas blog today with Stretch Your Supplies Card Series! This super simple modern Christmas card was made with a very limited craft supplies so you don’t have an excuse not to get your hands inky and try to make handmade cards for your friends and family if you haven’t tried yet!

All you need for this project is Sorted Shapes Stencil, a few colors of Distress Oxide inks (in case you don’t have them, you can definitively use regular Distress inks or any kind of dye or pigment inks you have on hand), a pencil, a pair of scissors, a ruler, a brush and a piece of watercolor paper.

So let’s see a step by step tutorial:

  • Cut and score an extended A2 size card base (5½” x 4¼”).

  • Use a ruler, a pencil and scissors, trace and cut two triangles one a little bit smaller than the other (see the picture above). Use them as a guide and cut out a few triangles from a watercolor paper for your project.

  • Take another rectangle piece of a watercolor paper (I used here Distress Cardstock from Tim Holtz since it ment to work with Distress inks) and use your Distress Oxide inks as a watercolor media, smooshing them against a sleek surface and creating a messy spots with a regular brush (see the picture above). This technique will work both with regular Distress inks or any sort of dye inks. You can use regular watercolors at this point too.

  • Smoosh once more on a sleek surface a few shades of inks, mix them with a translucent or white embossing paste and apply on top of the watercolor spot using the circle part of Sorted Shapes Stencil and creating a sort of snowy background. In case you don’t have an embossing paste, apply the inks directly to the watercolor base through the stencil with a foam tool or directly from an ink pad (see the picture above).

  • Use a chevron part of Sorted Shapes Stencil to decorate the triangles by applying the ink with a foam or directly from the ink pad. If you work with Distress or dye inks, spritz a few water droplets on top to bring some interest (see the picture above).

  • Add color to a narrow strip of paper, let it dry and heat emboss the sentiment from Holiday Sweaters stamp set. Of course, you can simply stamp the sentiment on top or hand draw one of your choice.

  • Finally assemble everything, giving a little bit of dimension with a foam tape and adhere a few matching sequins as a finish touch.
