Well, the roses from the inspiration picture made me immediately think about the super adorable Lovely Blooms stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs and so grabbed some flowers and leaves and heat embossed a bunch on a white Bristol paper using a white embossing powder.

I used Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint shades and a few ink blending tools to add color. This is a super fun, quick and easy way to do that since the embossed lines resist from being inked and remain white revealing the pattern.

Next I die cut all the elements with the coordinating dies that came so handy for this project along with a “MOM” sentiment using new Essential Alphabet dies. Finally all the elements were arranged on a plain white card base and adhered with a bit of dimention.

Newton’s Nook Designs & Therm O Web Inspiration Week

Hello and welcome!
This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web are partnering for a fabulous inspiration week! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to add fun foils and more to your cards using Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps! There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

Grab Life By The Horn #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Believe In Unicorns stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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!

Grab Life By The Horn #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Believe In Unicorns stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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.

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

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.

 

Would you like to win a prize pack including a $25 store credit to Therm O Web AND a $25 store credit to Newton’s Nook Designs?

Bunny Cards (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

So Hoppy Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bitty Bunnies stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing two sweet and cute cards!

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

I just cannot put aside new fantastic goodies from the Newton’s Nook Designs February release without stretching them more and had a lot of fun playing again with two of my favorites! So let’s see what I came up with this time!

So Hoppy Together #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bitty Bunnies stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

My first card features a super adorable Bitty Bunnies stamp set. I totally felt in LOOOOOOVE with these sweet images! And inspire of the dimension of this set, it’s so incredibly versatile and literary can cover all the occasions around the year!!! Today I paired it with Cloudy Sky stencil and created a stack of cute bunnies first die-cut with the coordinating dies and then stamped and finally colored with copic markers. Please, check all the exact copic marker numbers I used here at the bottom of this post. Working on the background, before adding puffy clouds through Cloudy Sky stencil with a white embossing paste, I added an under color with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide. And once everything was dry, I arranged all the elements with a bit of dimension.

My second card is definitely more traditional Easter one. I simply grabbed one of the so adorable images from Newton’s Easter Basket stamp set, stamped it with Antique Linen Distress ink on a bristol paper because my intention was to make a no-line coloring. My color media choice was on Zig markers and I just sat down and enjoyed the coloring process.

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

While the watercolor piece were drying, I prepared an additional stitched frame die-cut from Frames & Flags die set, added color to the background with the same Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks I used before, applied a white embossing paste through Cloudy Sky stencil and stamped the sentiment from the same Newton’s Easter Basket set. Here’s a little tip for you: working with the stencil, I didn’t smoothed purposely the embossing paste, but left it uneven for a textured and dimensional look. The final step was die-cutting the colored stamped with the coordinating dies and arranging all the elements on a regular A2 size card base.

That’s all for today! Hope you like these sweet cards! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

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

For my stop on this hop I created a sweet and colorful birthday card featuring my ever favorite kitty Newton! He is an adorable sweet orange tabby cat and the inspiration for NND name and logo. Today I used a non traditional for a birthday theme Newton’s Christmas Cuddles stamp set that has a few super adorable and versatile images so it was super easy to interpret it in a different way by simply changing the color palette!

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

I obviously chose NND logo colors and colored the sweet kitty as Newton to give a personal touch to the card! I used my win win combo which consists of Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, Strathmore Bristol paper and a small water brush from Pentel. For the layout I used Frames & Flags die set and added a heat embossed sentiment from Newton’s Birthday Bash set. Finally a kitty paw pattern was added to the background through Pawprint stencil with Distress Oxide ink in Spiced Marmalade color and an ink blending tool!

Newton’s Nook Designs Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Newton’s Nook Designs 4th Annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

The Newton’s Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats – just in time for Valentine’s Day!

#handmade cupcake toppers by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my stop on this hop I created some sweet decorations perfect to give an extra special touch for your San Valentine’s treats!!!

#handmade cupcake toppers by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


I mixed and matched a few NND sets creating these decorations. The cute muffins from Love Bites stamp set were my first choice and the coordinating Love Bites Die Set came super handy this time for a quick and easy die-cutting because I needed two identical die-cut pieces for every muffin topper. And so I prepared some stamped muffins along with a cute kitty from Sending Hugs stamp set (colored obviously like my sweet furry boy! LOL!!!) on Strathmore Bristol paper because it’s my favorite to use with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. Then I decided to add a romantic feel with a few hearts. These were super quick and easy to put together since I only had to pick a patterned heart stamps from Woodland Duos stamp set, make some stamping with colorful inks and die-cut with the coordinating Darling Hearts die set.

And since my sweet treats include strawberries and some fruit gelees, I made the coordinating decorations as well using Love & Chocolate stamp set and the coordinating dies plus Peppermint Die Set.
