DIY Sweet Treats Bags by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps and dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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

DIY Sweet Treats Bags by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps and dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I prepared paper bags from a plain white light weight cardstock. Before assembling the bags, I used a small heart from Woodland Duos stamp set for the first bag and a big love sentiment from Uplifting Wishes stamp set for the second one and repeatedly stamped them creating my own pattern paper. I used Hero Arts Pale Tomato and Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red dye inks for all the stamping on these projects.

Next I assembled both treat bags and decided to decorate them with a big heart and the word “LOVE” both die cut from Darling Hearts set. For a perfect match I used the same red dye inks that I’ve mentioned before and an ink blending tool to add colors on the hearts. Finally I adhered everything on one side of the treat bags along with a little bow. Easy peasy!!! What do you think?

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – My Type and Candy Heart

Hello and thanks so much for joining me for the final day the Newton’s Nook Designs January release!

All the new January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 18th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

You're Just My Type #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - My Type stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today we have two small, but not less adorable stamp sets called My Type and Candy Heart. Both new sets come with the coordinating dies.

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

My first card features My Type stamp and die sets!

You're Just My Type #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - My Type stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I die cut the typewriter from Strathmore Bristol paper using My Type Die Set and stamped the coordinating image from My Type stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it doesn’t smudge when used with water. Next I did a super simple coloring using Tombow markers: n.N25, n.N60, n.452, n.703, n.772.

I prepared the sentiment element using the same My Type set and a speech bubble from Newton’s Day Dream stamp set.

You're Just My Type #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - My Type stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the background I die cut a stamp edge frame from Framework Die Set on a piece of a white cardstock and a big heat from Darling Hearts Die Set on a masking paper. Next I applied the negative part of the heart mask towards the center of my card and inked it with a light pink ink. Before removing the mask, I tape on top Tumbling Hearts stencil and inked the heart window once more creating a pattern on top. Finally I could reveal the mask and pop all the elements on a foam tape for a bit of dimension.

Candy Heart #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Candy Heart stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Creating my second card, I decided to stretch more Candy Heart stamp and die sets and created entire project using only this small bundle.

Candy Heart #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Candy Heart stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Candy Heart Die Set is done in a very clever way and has the shaped heart matching the heart stamp from Candy Heart stamp set plus another simple heart die. I used the second one and repeatedly die cut it on a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock that was previously inked with Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress inks. Next I trimmed and scored in half a regular A2 size card base from a bright pink card stock. I placed the negative part of the die cut panel to the card base and marked all the heart windows with a pencil. Finally I heat embossed different sentiments from Candy Heart stamp set with a white embossing paste directly on the card front, erased all the pencil lines and popped the die cut panel on top. A few matching sequins finished this card.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Love Owl-ways

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs January release! Thanks so much for joining me today!

All the new January products will be available for purchase on Friday, January 18th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Happy Valentine's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There would be no perfect January release without Valentine’s Day theme! Right?! That’s why I’m super excited to share with you the adorable owls from Love Owl-ways stamp set! In case you’re interested, this set comes with the coordinating dies!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving a new Love Owl-ways stamp sets away a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

And here’s my first project featuring the cutie owl from Love Owl-ways stamp set with the balloons! You know that I’m a great fan of the balloons for all the occasions!!!

Happy Valentine's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since my choice in terms of color media was on watercolor markers, I went for my favorite Strathmore Bristol paper, VersaFine Onyx black ink for stamping since it’s waterproof and a small water brush from Pentel. I first made die cutting using Love Owl-ways and Playful Pandas Die Sets and then stamped the coordinating images from Love Owl-ways and Playful Pandas stamp sets.

As always I’m leaving you the colors I used on this project: TOMBOW n.026, n.703, n.723, n.761, n.815, n.835, n.873, n.905, n.977.

Assembling all the elements, I give a little bit of texture to the card base, embossing a white embossing paste on top through Tumbling Hearts stencil. Next I popped the colored stamps on a foam tape and have a little happy accident on adding a shiny coat of Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops that cracked, but gave me a super fun texture! I really like how it turned out and wonder if any of you had the same experience with Nuvo Drops? Finally, a heat embossed sentiment from the same Love Owl-ways stamp set on a piece of a black cardstock finished this project.

Happy Valentine's Day #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I just cannot stop playing more with the beautiful owls and here’s my second project!

My Heart Is OWL Yours #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with the same materials that I used on a previous card except of Sending Hugs stamp and die sets used to create a bunch of envelopes.

I’m leaving you all the exact number of watercolor markers used here as well: TOMBOW n.025, n.090, n.703, n.723, n.761, n.815, n.835, n.873, n.905, n.969.

My Heart Is OWL Yours #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Love Owl-ways stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I decided to keep everything clean and simple. A regular A2 size card base was masked and inked with a light lilac ink. Next I added a sentiment towards the top right corner by simply stamping it from the same Love Owl-ways stamp set with the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink I used for the images for a perfect match. Finally I popped all the watercolored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few crystal clear sequins.

Newton’s Nook Designs Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

nndsweettreatsbloghop

Hello and welcome to the Newton’s Nook Designs 4th Annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

The Newton’s Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats – just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

#handmade cupcake toppers by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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

#handmade cupcake toppers by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


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.

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.
