When Life Gives You A Rainy Day... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Rainy Day stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For my stop on this hop I created a very simple card featuring small, but so adorable Newton’s Rainy Day stamp set. Working on this project I invested all my time in no-line coloring adding a bit of happy bright colors in a rainbow order. To start, I stamped the kitty under an umbrella and a little frog on Arches Hot Pressed Watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress ink since it’s light and reactivates with water. I colored the stamps with water based Tombow markers first, let the piece air dry and then added more details with Polychromos colored pencils.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this card: TOMBOW MARKERS N75, N79, 055, 133, 173, 249, 452, 526, 606, 676, 685, 703, 835, 905, 933 plus Zig Clean Colour Real Brush marker n.61 Light Brown.

One part of the sentiment was heat embossed on a strip of a black cardstock and the other was simply stamped under the colored image. I trimmed the watercolor piece to fit on an extended light gray A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) and adhered it on a foam tape. As a final touch I placed three little sparkling dots using liquid Sparkling Crystal Drops from Gina K Designs.

Oh Happy Day Card (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

Oh Happy Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

Today I’m sharing a sweet all occasion card that involved a little color pencils coloring and some die cutting!

To start I picked adorable Potted Plants And Herbs stamp from Purple Onion Designs and stamped it on a kraft cardstock. I like the color of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and how the color pencils look on it. And since I haven’t used a kraft base for while, I decided to give it a try today!

Oh Happy Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

I stamped the images from Potted Plants And Herbs set with MFT black Hybrid ink, fussy cut with my sharp small scissors and colored with colored pencils. I used Faber-Castell Polychromos brand today for coloring. The background was made from the same Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I die cut the matching stitched panel and circles combining SugarPea Designs Card Front Element Builder with Newton’s Nook Designs Frames Squared Die Set. I also prepared a simply stamped sentiment from Purple Onion Design’s Carnival/Fair Blurbs stamp set. I just love those adorable little speech bubbles! Assembling all the elements together, I played with different layers by gluing some elements directly to the card front and popping some others on a foam tape or doubled up foam tape.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute and simple card! As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Newton’s Nook Designs March Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Floral Fringe

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs March release!

All the new March products will be available for purchase on Friday, March 15th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Thanks A Bunch #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Day 2 has reserved us a wonderful cluster of spring flowers that come as a one big Floral Fringe stamp set. This stamp set also have some amazing sentiments inside, but doesn’t have the coordinating dies since it was meant to use with new Frames Squared Die. A universal die is much better than the coordinating set and can be used on any project! That’s why I love the NND clever design!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new stamp Floral Fringe stamp set away to a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!


For my stop one this hop I’m sharing two ways of use of this new beautiful Floral Fringe stamp set. The first project was colored with color pencils.

Thanks A Bunch #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I used Strathmore Toned Gray Paper and VersaMark ink that is perfect not only for embossing, but for no-line coloring too. I let the ink air dry before making my coloring and spent quite some time with playing with Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils.

Thanks A Bunch #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Before attaching the colored piece to a bright pink square card base, I framed the flowers with a scalloped die from Frames Squared Die set and finally embellished the card with White Nuvo Drops and a few clear sequins.

So Happy You're My Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The second card features a fun and easy way to make watercoloring. I heat embossed the flower cluster from Floral Fringe stamp set with Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder from Ranger. The heat embossed edges are deep and contains the color areas separated from each other. So you can drop a bit of bright color towards the center of the flowers and let it spread with clear water creating a little bit splotchy watercolor look.

Here’s the list of all TOMBOW markers I used on this project: n.126, n.133, n.452, n.606, n.620, n.703, n.725.

So Happy You're My Friend #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Fringe stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once again I framed the colored piece and the heat embossed sentiment with Frames Squared Die  set and popped all the elements on a foam tape along with a few matching sequins.

Stamp Focus (ft. Kindness Stamp Set from Crafting Desert Divas)

Kindness #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Kindness stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Hello and welcome!
I’ve popped in today with a quick post and another look on the beautiful floral Kindness stamp set! Missed previous posts?! You can catch them up here and here.

Kindness #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Kindness stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Well, my today’s version is a super simple no-line colored flower cluster made with colored pencils. But before I started the coloring process with my Polychromos pencils, I stamped the big flower stamp set with a light dye ink on Arches Sketch paper. It’s my first time working with this type of paper which is quite thing, but has a nice texture. Once I tested it, I’ll share a more detailed review. Thinking about the layout, I decided to frame the image into a stitched rectangle die cutting it from Fancy Frame Dies and since the Arches paper is not a pure white, I opted for a kraft card base. The sentiment was heat embossed on vellum, fussy cut with scissors and adhered with Multi Medium Matte since this glue dries clear and matte and that makes it really perfect for the clear iridescent sequins as well.

No Line Coloring With Colored Pencils (ft. Craftin Desert Divas)

May Your Day Be Magical #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Magical princess digital stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

Happy Monday!

I’ve popped in for a quick post because I was not able to resists and share with you new and soooooo adorable Magical Princess Digital Stamp!!!

May Your Day Be Magical #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Magical princess digital stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas

I made a simple digital layout without resizing the digital princess image which already comes perfect for an A2 size card. I only turned the stamp lines from black into a light gray color since I was going to made a no-line coloring while the sentiment was printed in black. Then I took off my Polychromos and Prismacolors pencils and spent some time coloring the cute image. Assembling the card, I framed the princess in a scalloped rectangle using Fancy Frame Dies, added a few white accents with a white gel pen and finally finished with a few clear sequins.May Your Day Be Magical #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Magical princess digital stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindesertdivas
