On my stop of this hop I’m sharing a cute and colorful card made out of NND Newton Dreams of London stamp set. The adorable kitty was stamped on a Bristol paper and colored with Zig markers. For the layout I used a few other fun products: Cloudy Sky Stencil along with Distress inks and Sky Borders Die set. The sentiment was composed from  Winston Takes FlightWinston’s Tee Time and Lovely Blooms stamp sets.

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Birthday Essentials




Hello and welcome to the last day of the Newton’s Nook Designs March Release!

All the new March products will be available for purchaise on Friday, March 16th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

....a Little Late #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Birthday Essentials stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is focusing on new Birthday Essentials stamp set that completes the March birthday theme release in the most perfect way! There’re some really great sentiments inside of any dimension and style that you can just grab and add to any birthday card, tag, scrapbook layout page or planner spread. Or as I did on my cards, you can stretch them a little bit more and transform into a fun background.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Birthday Essentials 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!

My first card is a tone on tone shaker project and teal shades make it just perfect for a masculine style.

....a Little Late #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Birthday Essentials stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Of course, I couldn’t escape to mix and match a few products from the new March release and so along with an ombré stamping on the background made from the different sentiments that you can find in Birthday Essentials stamp set, I used here Balloon Shaker Die set. Assembling the balloon shaker, I used a clear acetate on both back and front sides for a see through effect and added dimension with a double sided adhesive foam that NND carries in their shop. I can’t recommend enough this fabulous product: I tested it many times and always got gorgeous results in term of die cutting. And not telling that it’s a great time-saver as well! Adding more interest to the stamped background I die cut and popped on a foam tape a stitched rectangle from Frames & Flags die set and finally finished with a heat embossed sentiment that was placed on a dark gray cardstock instead of a usual black for a more uniform and soft look.

And here’s my alternative to the ombré background from my first card: this time I heat embossed in white some sentiment from Birthday Essentials stamp set on a light lilac cardstock.Make a Wish #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Birthday Essentials stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once finished with embossing, I added a fun interactive slider mechanism to the frame since my intention was to put the cute kitty from new Newton’s Birthday Balloons stamp set and make him deliver the purr-fect birthday wishes.

Make a Wish #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Birthday Essentials stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I used the coordinating Newton’s Birthday Balloons die set to die cut the kitty’s shape from Strathmore Bristol paper and then stamped the matching image with a black waterproof ink. Once finished with watercoloring using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, I started assembling the whole card.

Working on the sentiment, I paired the heat embossed “Make A” stamp from Birthday Essentials set with a word die that comes in Balloon Shaker Die set and added more color to it with the same pink shades I used on the kitty image.

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Uplifting Wishes Stamp Set & Balloon Shaker Die




Hello and welcome to the second reveal day for the Newton’s Nook Designs March Release!

All the new March products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, March 16th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Happy Birthday To You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Uplifting Wishes stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

In my opinion there would be no perfect birthday without balloons! Right?! LOL!!! That’s why no need to explain you how excited I’m about new Uplifting Wishes Stamp Set and Balloon Shaker Die. Really great addition to the NND collection and just so much fun to play with!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Uplifting Wishes 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!

Well, I had one idea in my head and decided to stretch immediately the new Balloon Shaker Die set. And so I die cut twice the outline balloon from a clear plastic and sealed both parts together with a fuse tool, filling the balloon with a few sequins.

Happy Birthday To You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Uplifting Wishes stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Next I started working on the background and trimmed a rectangle from a watercolor paper slightly smaller than my A2 size card base. First of all I did a watercolor wash concentrating the color towards the top part. Once the piece was dry, I applied Transfer Gel from Therm O Wed through just released yesterday Bubbly stencil and let everything air dry for about one hour. When the transfer gel became transparent, I made the foiling using a heat laminator and a gold foiling paper and finally heat embossed a matching gold sentiment using new Uplifting Wishes stamp set. Assembling the card, I adhered the balloon with a few clear dots of glue and popped up the watercolor panel on a foam tape.

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release and Giveaway – Day 1 – Holding Happiness

Are you ready for another FANTASTIC reveal filled with incredible and so various products that will suit any paper crafter?! So let’s start!

All the new March products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, March 16th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

BIG Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holding Happiness stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

A new March release has a lot of fun birthday theme products that coordinate in a fabulous way!!! Today all the Design Team is focusing on new fantastic Holding Happiness stamp set that that comes with the coordinating dies and two new stencils with Confetti and Bubbly patterns.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Holding Happiness 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!

My first card turned out super colorful. I stamped with a copic friendly ink one cute image from Holding Happiness stamp set, added a bit of rainbow colors with my copic markers and finally die-cut everything with the coordinating die.

BIG Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holding Happiness stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the background I prepared a stitched rectangle die-cut from Distress cardstock with Frames & Flags die set. Next I added a colorful spot toward the right side of my panel using Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers color and an ink blending tool along with some water droplets and colorful splashes. I let the ink dry very well before adding the sentiment from the same Holding Happiness stamp set and finally applied a white embossing paste through new Confetti  stencil.

My second card, although has a different look, was made with the same NND products I used on the first one. Once more I stamped with a copic friendly ink on Neenah Solar White paper the cute girl with a super BIG birthday present, colored the image with copic markers and finally die-cut using with the coordinating die.

You Deserve BIG Things #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holding Happiness stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The background was made on Distress cardstock since it makes the ink blending super easy and holds water. I started creating a light spot with Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick color. Then applied Confetti stencil and added more color on top. Some water droplets and colorful splashes made the pattern even more playful and interesting. While the ink was drying, I heat embossed the sentiment from Holding Happiness stamp set and repeatedly stamp with the same black ink I used before the small flower stamp creating a fun pattern directly on the card base.

Finally I assembled everything with a bit of dimension, a few black accents and some clear sequins.

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Bitty Bunnies



Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs February Release!

Are you ready for another FANTASTIC release filled with incredible and so various products that will suit any paper crafter?! So let’s start!

All the new February products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, February 16th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

You are EAR-resistable #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bitty Bunnies stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Teams is focusing on a small, but so aer-resistible stamp set called Bitty Bunnies. I’m totally fell in loooooove with these cute bitty bunnies and who can blame me for that! Bunnies are always melt everyone’s heart!  Right?! Plus in spite of the small dimensions, the sky is the limit for this set! It can be used in so many ways and cover almost all the occasions! All the die-cut fans can get the coordinating dies as well!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Bitty Bunnies 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!

Creating this clean and simple card, I started by stamping the bunny and a couple of the butterflies on Neenah Solar White paper with a copic friendly black ink and colored them with copic markers, of course. Once the images were ready, I set them aside and proceeded with the background and the card base.

You are EAR-resistable #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bitty Bunnies stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

First of all I prepared an additional panel to go on top of the card base with a die cut circle window, I marked the position of the open area and made an ombre ink blending with Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick color directly on the card base. After heat setting the color, I added two clouds through just release yesterday Cloudy Sky Stencil with a white embossing paste and heat set everything once more. I usually don’t use heat with embossing pastes since it makes bubbles, but this time that effect was perfect for the additional dimension and texture on the clouds. Creating the banner for the sentiment I used Land Borders die set along with a matching sentiment from Bitty Bunnies stamp set. Finally assembling everything, I popped all the elements on a foam tape and finished with a coat of a clear shimmer pen and a few clear iridescent sequins.
