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!

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 February Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Woof Pack



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

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!

Best Friends Come in All Shapes & Sizes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Woof Pack stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

NND just cannot leave all dog fans disappointed and so after the incredible Company of Cats I’m sooooooo happy to present you a whole bunch of super cute puppies in the new stamp set called Woof Pack that coordinates perfectly with Frames & Flags die set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Woof Pack 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!

I was super excited to dive into dog breed searching and had so much fun coloring these cuties with my Zig markers. In case you are not a dog expert (like me! LOL!!!) here’s the reference to all the dogs from Woof Pack stamp set:

Left to Right:
Top row: Bulldog, Chihuahua, Boxer, Jack Russell Terrier
Second row: Poodle, Dachshund, Beagle, Basset Hound
Third row: Cocker Spaniel, Yorkshire Terrier, Boston Terrier
Corgi squeezed in between the rows
Bottom row: German Shepherd, Saint Bernard, Pug, Labrador Retriever

Best Friends Come in All Shapes & Sizes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Woof Pack stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since I was working with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, I chose once more Strathmore Bristol paper as blending goes super easy on this type of paper plus a small watercolor brush from Pentel. Once the all the dogs were colored, I used a stitched frame die from Frames & Flags die set to frame all the woof pack and then die cut the same frame once more directly on the front panel of the card base. I aligned the positive die cut piece with the frame window on the card base and adhered the dogs to the inner part of the card so that once opened you have the empty frame on the card front and the colored piece inside. The last step was a little bit more die cutting. I prepared three fish-tale banners with Frames & Flags die set and used one to stamp the sentiment from Woof Pack set while two others were simply colored with the same Zig markers I used before.

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Company of Cats



Hello and welcome to Day 3 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're the Coolest Cat of All #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Company of Cats stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m sure that all cat people just cannot resist to a super adorable Company of Cats from this new release! I’m head over heals on seeing so many super cute kitties! Plus I loooove big stamp sets: no masking and arranging and over thinking are needed! You’re immediately ready to sit down, relax and just enjoy the coloring process! This stamp doesn’t have dies, but it coordinates perfectly with Frames & Flags die set.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Company of Cats 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!

Today I came with an interactive shaker card! I picked one of the sentiments that come with Company of Cats stamp set and decided to play around it! And so I colored all the stack of cute kitties in gray tones and then made pop the one with a funny face by giving him strong bright colors.

You're the Coolest Cat of All #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Company of Cats stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

When I work with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, my win win combo is Strathmore Bristol paper and a small watercolor brush from Pentel. Once all the furry company was colored, I went a little bit crazy and fussy cut the whole stamp following the stamp lines and then colored the edge with a black marker to hide any imperfection due to the fussy cutting. Assembling the card, I prepared a window frame for the shaker element by aligning and die cutting two frames from Frames & Flags die set. Then, before adhering the die cut frame on a foam tape, I filled the shaker area both with clear iridescent sequins and some colorful beads to remind the colors I used on the kitty. Finally I did more die cutting and put the coordinating sentiment on a fish-tale banner from Frames & Flags die set and finish by embellishing it with an yellowy-orange twine to add another pop of color to this clean card.

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.

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release and Giveaway – Day 1 – Newton’s Easter Basket



Hello and welcome to Day 1 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!

Egg-stra Special Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Easter Basket stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The first day of the release starts with super adorable Newton’s Easter Basket stamp set that comes with the coordinating dies and amazing Cloudy Sky Stencil. No need to tell you that the Easter adventures of the cute kitty have stolen my heart! And a few Easter cards come so handy for my stash!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Newton’s Easter Basket 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 choice was the cutest mischief peeking behind the Easter eggs from new Newton’s Easter Basket stamp set. I stamped him with a copic friendly ink on Neenah Solar White paper, colored with copic markers and fussy cut right against the stamp lines. Then I hid any imperfection from the fussy cutting by painting the edges with a black marker.

Once the stamp was ready, I proceeded working on the background. After die cutting a scalloped rectangle from Frames & Flags die set, I made a mask die cutting a grass edge from Land Borders die set on a masking paper and used it to apply the ink with an ink blending tool. For the sky portion I used Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink and for the grass – Twisted Citron color. Before assembling everything, I added a few clouds through new Cloudy Sky stencil and stamped with the matching black ink the Easter sentiment from Beautiful Spring set. I set everything aside and let the background air dry very well since I decided to heat emboss a few matching cloud outlines from Winston Takes Flight and Newton Scoots By stamps sets. Finally I assembled everything giving a bit of dimension with a foam tape and added a coat of a shimmer clear pen just for an extra finish touch.
