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

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.

Sending Birthday Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m totally in love with the stamp set that NND is revealing today. It’s called Sending Hugs and it comes with a super clever and incredible coordinating die set that will allow you to make a cut around the critter’s paws and make them hold any small stamp from Sending Hugs set! What a fun and clever way to personalized you paper crafting projects plus it gives an additional value to the coordinating dies!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Sending Hugs 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 looooove personalized cards very much and so I just couldn’t stop on only one cute critter and placed a gang of furry friends sending happy birthday wishes!!!

Sending Birthday Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started this card die-cutting the adorable furry friends with the coordinating dies from Neenah Solar White cardstock, then aligned the negative part of the die-cuts in the stamping positioning tool and made the stamping with a copic friendly ink. The color media choice was obviously on copic markers. I’m leaving all the exact colors I used on this card at the bottom of this post. I embellished the card base with an ombrè ink blending through just released yesterday Tumbling Hearts Stencil using Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick color. Then I die-cut a frame and a few fish-tail banners from Frames & Flags Die Set. I colored the banners with the same copic markers I used on the stamps for a perfect match and then heat embossed the sentiment from the same Sending Hugs set on top with a white embossing powder. Finally popped up all the element on a foam tape and embellished with some clear sparkling sequins.
