My today’s project is definitely not for mass producing, but I LOOOVE coloring so much and, trust me, I spent some happy hours playing with the adorable critters from All Aboard For Christmas stamp set. To start, I die cut all the elements using the coordinating All Aboard For Christmas Die Set on Neenah Solar White paper and then stamped the open images with MFT Black Hybrid ink. The tag shape along with a sparkling metallic die cut sentiment were made using Snow Globe Shaker Die Set.  Finally all the backgrounds were embellished with a few matching silver snowflakes heat embossed from Sweater Weather stamp set.

The first cutie is a fabulous reindeer put onto a traditional blue background. I tried to use a limited color combo here and colored the image with different shapes of pink.

As always I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on every tag: COPIC MARKERS RV02-RV04-RV09; R20-R22-R24-R30-R32; E53-E55-E99; Y00-Y21-YR23; C00-C1-C2-C3-C5-C7.

DIY Christmas Tags Plus Video (ft. SugarPea Designs)

DIY Christmas Tags #handmade by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Characters die set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today and showcase you a super fun and cute Christmas Characters SugarCut. I gathered together a lot of ideas plus some tips and tricks for you useful for the beginner carmakers and expert ones! So please watch the video tutorial below!

As a base for all the characters from Christmas Characters SugarCut I used Floral Pocket Tag SugarCut assembled with a gift holder element and as a simple tag.

I played with colorful cardstocks on the snowman tag to create some shading and dimension. The cute elf was assembled with patterned paper die cut from SugarPea Designs’ Spots & Stripes Brights paper pad. The Santa tag was assembled using mostly the same red color on many elements.

The cutie penguin turned out super soft due to a velvety texture from the Flock Sheets. Finally the adorable reindeer was customized with a brown shade from Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink.

You can obviously mix and match all the ideas on any tag and add your own finish touches with Christmas red glitter or a coat of a festive shimmer pen. It’s also so easy to create your own patterns on the accessories by using a black marker or a white gel pen. Googly eyes or liquid black accents can add to the critters an extra fun finish touch.

That’s all for today! Hope all the ideas that I shared today will inspire you to give a try to your own customized Christmas tags!  As always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

25 Days Of Christmas Tags (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)


Hello and welcome!

Today I’m taking part at the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event hosted by the talented Tracy McNeely. We are on day 5 of this awesome feature so make sure you visit her blog each day to see all 25 days! And today it is also Newton’s Nook Designs feature day and that means you’ll see a lot of inspiration and tags made using the NND brand products!

Christmas Tags #handmade by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Ornamental Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Christmas is approaching so fast and so I decided to move ahead and prepare holiday gift’s tags for my family! Since it’s a mass producing project, I kept everything quite simple and easy! And my color choice was determined by my Christmas tree colors: teal and sparkling white, but you can obviously adopt this idea to suit your color theme.

Christmas Tags #handmade by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Ornamental Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This year I went for a shaped tags die cut from Ornamental Shaker Die. This set meant to be used for creating shaker tags, but I used only the base shape die and went for a one layer project. I used a teal cardstock (Audrey Blue color from Simon Says Stamp) and the matching teal ink to add a fun tone on tone pattern through Snowfall stencil.

Christmas Tags #handmade by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Ornamental Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I let the ink air dry well and then heat embossed on top of my tags with a white embossing powder various sentiments from Ornamental Wishes stamp set. For an extra finish touch I die cut the ornamental tops using the same Ornamental Shaker Die set from a plain white cardstock, covered them with a generous coat of Multi Medium Matte adhesive and sprinkled a sparkling glitter on top. Once dried, I shook off the excess and adhered the top parts on both sides of the tags to make them look perfect since I’ll use the back part for writhing names.

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.
