I’m sure you will fall in love with the new romantic stamp set that I’m sneak peeking today! All the images from Hitched stamp set are so fabulous, elegant and dreamy! And so I went with a clean and simple design, making a focus on the stamps and coloring.

Want to recreate this cute card? Nothing more easy! Just follow the step by step tutorial I’m leaving you with.

  • Take a piece of a masking paper, trace a heart shape with a pencil and cut the heat window with scissors or an exacto knife.

  • Trim a rectangle from a white cardstock slightly smaller than A2 size card base (5″ x 3¾”) and place the negative part of the mask with a heart window on top.
  • Add Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry color with an ink blending tool.

  • Then add and fix on top Hearts Galore stencil without lifting up the mask and add more color through the stencil.

  • At this point remove both the stencil and the mask and set everything aside.
  • Stamp the image of your choice from Hitched stamp set with a copic friendly black ink on a copic friendly paper, proceed with coloring and fussy cut it leaving a little white edge around. I’m leaving all the exact copic markers I used here at the bottom of this post.
  • Start assembling the card by preparing an A2 size card base from a light gray cardstock, stamping the sentiment from Simply Said set with the same black ink you used before for a perfect match and popping up some elements on a foam tape for a bit of dimension.

Crafting Desert Divas – January Release Replay – Get Well


Happy Friday!

It’s another release replay of the Craftin Desert Divas January reveals.

Get Well Soon #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Get Well Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

Today I’m sharing a clean and simple card featuring adorable Get Well stamp set! This is my “boy” take on this cute stamp set. (In case you’ve missed the “girl” version, you can catch it up right here.)

Get Well Soon #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Get Well Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

I grabbed and stamped a few cute images with a copic friendly black ink on a copic friendly paper as my intention was to color with copic markers, of corse. Scroll down towards the bottom of this post in case you are interested to find all the exact colors I used here. Then I fussy cut all the colored stamps leaving a little white edge around and started working on the card base. I die-cut twice the medium circle with Inside Scalloped Circle Die set: once on the edge on a white cardstock and then from a masking paper. I used the negative part of the masking paper to mask the circle directly on the card base while I was adding a light yellow ink blended background with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink and some dots with a regular white embossing paste through Sorted Shapes Stencil. Once the embossing paste was dry, I started assembling the card, giving a bit of dimension with a foam tape and added a heat embossed sentiment from Simply Said stamp set.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Newton’s Sweetheart



Hello and welcome to Day 4 of the Newton’s Nook Designs January Release!

The last day reserves us a very sweet surprise!!! A new super adorable and absolutely charming stamp set featuring the cutest mischief Newton!!!

All the new January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 19th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Smitten As A Kitten #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Sweetheart stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is focusing on a very special stamp set called Newton’s Sweetheart and there’s no need to tell you that it has stolen my heart at the first sight! LOL!!! All the die fans can get the coordinating dies as well.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Newton’s Sweetheart 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 love the look of white on a kraft cardstock. And so I started this card applying a white embossing paste through just released Tumbling Hearts Stencil. I purposely didn’t smooth the embossing paste to achieve a fun texture.

Smitten As A Kitten #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Sweetheart stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

While the embossing paste was drying, I die-cut, stamped and colored with copic markers a sweet couple of kitties along with a few tiny hearts. I kept my hand very light and chose soft colors for the critters almost giving them a white slightly shaded look. Then I added bright red details to make them pop against the background. Finally, I prepared two fish-tale banners die-cutting them with Frames & Flags Die Set from a white cardstock first and then coloring one with the same res shades I used previously on the kitties. The last steps were a heat embossed sentiment from the same Newton’s Sweetheart set, a shimmer pen and a coat of Glossy Accents from Ranger on the milk bottle.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Deer Friend



Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs January 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 January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 19th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today all the Design Team is kicking off a super adorable Deer Friend stamp set that has become one of my favorites because it’s filled with such DEER images and sentiments perfect both for special occasions and for a simply friend card. This set also has the coordinating dies that you can get apart.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Deer Friend 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!

For me the cute deers were just screaming for watercoloring. And so I first die-cut one from a watercolor paper using the coordinating dies along with a few tiny leaves and flowers because I find that it’s easily to align the negative part of the die into a stamping positioning tool and then make stamping! Plus it goes much faster in case you need to do multiple stamping of the same image!

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

While the watercolor elements were drying, I started working on the background. First of all I created the tag similar to what I did for the first day of the release, die-cutting the tag twice from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set using a light green and white cardstock, creating a fancy edge on the white one and then heat embossing the sentiment from the same Deer Friend stamp set. (In case you missed this post, you can catch it up right here.) Then I used just released Tumbling Hearts Stencil and create my own colorful embossing paste by simply mixing a regular white one with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. Assembling the card, I popped some elements onto a foam tape for a bit of dimension and added a little bow on the top part of the tag.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Sending Hugs



Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs January 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 January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 19th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

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.
