I played a lot with new to me fabulous products from Therm O Web and mixed them with adorable Newton’s Nook Designs stamps, stencils and dies. The result is two cute cards, I’m sharing today!

Today’s post is going to be a review on my favorite products from both companies! Curios to know more? So Let’s start with Deco Foil Transfer Gel from Therm O Web! I’m totally in love with this product. It spreads like butter and makes adhere the foil perfectly to your project. The best way to use it is to pair with stencils of course and Starfield Stencil from NND seems to be made for this aim. I used new Sparkling Silver design from Gina K. that has a tiny little stars and a holographic feel, creating the starry background for this card.

All that beautiful sparkle screamed to me for the magical unicorns. And so I added one from Believe In Unicorns stamp set colored with Zig markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. Finishing the card, I used Frames & Flags die set for the fish-tale banners and added a few matching starts from Cosmic Newton stamp set.

My second card features the amazing new Clear Toner Sheets (Distressed Lines) by Therm O Web. You can easily foil them with a heat laminator for really gorgeous results. My choice was on a transfer sheet in Aqua color for this shaker card. Here’s a little tip for you: let your laminator heat for at least 20 minutes before doing the foiling and then prepare the sandwich to go through made from a sheet of cardstock to increase the pressure and a parchment paper bent over in half where you put first a clear toner sheet facing the toner side up and then the foil sheet with a shiny surface up. As a parchment paper you can use both a printer paper and a baking paper you probably have in your kitchen.

Once finished with foiling, I made a shaker base using the negative part of the rectangle frame from Frames & Flags die set. Heat embossed and water colored beautiful flowers from Lovely Blooms set and finally added a personalized sentiment from Simply Relative stamp set.

Last but not least comes Purple Tape from Therm O Web. It’s really handy to have it in the craft stash. I used it to hold in place both stencils and dies creating these card. It’s thing and sticky enough to secure your projects, but does not tear the paper while you’re removing it.

Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #47

ipcsidebarbadge

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #47 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

You're Amazing #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The current challenge is a color one. And I LIKE so much the bright juicy colors from the inspiration graphic! So I hope they will inspire you to play along, just make a project using pink, orange, yellow and teal inspired by the graphic you see below 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.

I just can’t stop playing with the amazing Lovely Blooms stamp set and this time I went to emboss resist and added color with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since they are always a winning choice for bright and colorful projects!

You're Amazing #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started working on Bristol paper and stamped a bunch of small flowers and a few leaf branches from Lovely Blooms set with a clear sticky ink. I heat embossed all the flowers with a white embossing powder and added color with Zig markers. Once everything was dry, I die-cut all the elements using the coordinating dies from Lovely Blooms die set.

You're Amazing #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Then I prepared a watercolor background using a traditional watercolor paper since it holds water much better than Bristol one and a traditional teal watercolor from Schmincke. I also tried to heat emboss the matching white sentiment directly on the background, but it was not bold enough to create a contrast so I decided not to give up and fix it putting a small tag on top where I simply stamped with a black ink “You’re Amazing” sentiment from NND Beautiful Plumage stamp set. A few black details were a perfect finish touch!

That’s all for today! Hope you like my simple card and it will inspire you to join this new challenge! I’ll catch you up on the Inky Paws Challenge Blog! Have a great week!

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #46 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

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

The current challenge is a sketch one. I like sketch challenges and hope you’ll play along as well, just make a project inspired by the graphic you see below 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.

Today I played once more with the amazing Lovely Blooms stamp set. I love it so much and just couldn’t stop playing again and again! Plus it’s so perfect for spring cards!

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

This card came out very quickly. I die-cut a bunch of flowers and leaves using the coordinating Lovely Blooms die set and made my stamping using the negative part left from the die-cuts and a stamping positioning tool. I used a copic friendly paper pared with a copic friendly black ink and finished with a super simple coloring. The card base was made out of a watercolor paper. I smooched a very light blue ink using a piece of clear plastic and added some water droplets on top to create a splotchy background. The personalized sentiment from Simply Relative stamp sets was heat embossed on a piece of a black cardstock and I left nothing to do, but arrange all the element and glue them together.

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

A new Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #45 starts today and I just couldn’t not play along! This is my inspiration projects for you!

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

The current challenge is called “Use A Doily”. If you want to play along, just use a doily on your projects paired with at least one Newton’s Nook Designs brand product and upload them 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.

I have to share another idea with you how you can stretch the coordinating dies and get more use out of them. I played with the Lovely Blooms die set that coordinates with the adorable Lovely Blooms stamp set. I didn’t stamp any flowers image this time, but simply die-cut a few flowers and leaves from Bristol paper using the coordinating dies and added color with inkblending tool to them! Super fun and easy technique that allows to get a totally different look out of the same product!

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

Arranging the flowers on my cream color card base, I used a doily, a few crystal clear sequins and the sentiment words from NND Lovely Blooms and Simply Relative stamp sets!

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release and Giveaway – Simply Relative

Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy I’ve joined the Newton’s Nook Designs Design Team for Day 3 of the April Release!

World's Best Mother #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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.

World's Best Mother #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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!

World's Best Mother #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Simply Relative Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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.
