Find Your Happy Place #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Birdhouse stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There would be no purr-fect release without new stamps with the sweet kitty Newton! Right?! So the last day of the NND April reveal has reserved us a super adorable Newton’s Birdhouse stamp set that as always comes with the coordinating dies! Plus two new mini, but not less amazing stamps for the upcoming Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Newton’s Birdhouse stamp set away to a lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!



Working with Newton’s Birdhouse stamp and die sets, as always I started with die cutting and then stamping using Strathmore Bristol paper and waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink as my intention was to use watercolor markers.

And here’re the complete list of all TOMBOW markers I used on this project: n.025, n.026, n.055, n.098, n.126, n.133, n.493 n.515, n.755, n.800, n.899, n.947, n.992, n.993.

A regular A2 size card base was made from a kraft cardstock and embellished with a tone on tone pattern applied through Hardwood stencil with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I also die cut for the layout a stitched rectangle from vellum using Frames & Flags Die Set along with a grass portion made from Land Borders Die Set and inked with Twisted Citron Distress ink. Finally assembling all the elements, I added a stamped sentiment on a cloud shaped  Speech Bubble that matches purr-fectly the slipping kitty.

Don’t be deceived by the small size of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day stamp sets! You can easily make a full A2 size card with them!

Happy Mother's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mother's Day stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on Mother’s Day project, I repeatedly stamp the sentiment with flowers on the scalloped rectangle die cut from Frames & Flags Die Set, creating a pattern that should look like some clothes. Then I filled the gaps with small leaves and flowers from Woodland Spring and Deer Friend stamp sets and colored everything with copic markers without making any shading.

Here are all the colors used: COPIC T1, RV02, RV04, YG01, Y17, Bg11.

I wanted to place the floral pattern on a colorful card base, but couldn’t find a perfect shade of pink in my stash. So I ink a plain white bard base with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and popped the scalloped rectangle on top with a foam tape.

The Father’s Day card turned out super simple and easy! First, I stamped and quickly colored the sentiment using copic markers: E31-E35; B21-B24-B26; BG10-BG-23.

Happy Father's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Father's Day stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since I wanted to add more color to a 4 Bar card base, I inked it with Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sets Distress inks and then again applying on top Tropical Fish stencil.

Finally I prepared another matching layer using Vintage Photo Distress ink and new Hardwood stencil before assembling all the elements and adding a few clear droplets.

For Mum Shaped Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

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

Hello and welcome!

So happy you’ve joined me today! I’m bringing you this bright spring card featuring Lovely Blooms stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs! I was inspired by a project I saw on Instagram a few days ago and thought it would be great to stretch once more the coordinating dies and create a shaped card out of them!

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

The beautiful flowers from Lovely Blooms stamp set are so amazing and have fantastic design that gives you almost infinite ways of use on your projects! And so this time my choice was on stamping them with Distress inks and a simple non-perfect splotchy watercoloring!

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

I started by die-cutting a bunch of flowers and leaves out of Lovely Blooms Die Set along with the jar element that was cut out twice to create a card base. I used Distress Watercolor cardstock for this project since it meant to be used with Distress inks and reactive with water so well plus it’s thick and that gives more stability for the shaped card. Then I simply stamped outline images from Lovely Blooms stamp set using Distress inks and used them for watercoloring as well.

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

Once all the elements were dried, I started assembling my shaped card from the jar stamp adhering only the top part to create the card base that could be opened and of course, hold a message inside. Then I proceeded with arranging leaves and flowers gluing them together to form a bouquet! And finally I added a little personalized tag made out of Tags Times Two Die set and a super clever Simply Relative stamp set that allows you to create custom messages for any occasion!

That’s all for today! And if you need more inspiration, you can find two other awesome projects featuring Lovely Blooms stamp set here in a shaker card and here for some more ideas on how to stretch the coordinating dies!  As always thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving me nice comments! I really appreciate your support!!!

Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #45

ipcsidebarbadge

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!

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

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!

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.

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

Happy Tuesday!

And thanks for joining the Newton’s Nook Designs Design Team for Day 2 of the April Release!

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.
