SugarPea Designs Mix It Up October Challenge #48

Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Fox stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
Today I’ve popped in with an inspiration project made for the SugarPea Designs monthly Mix It Up challenge. You have all month to play along and make a project using just the inspiration, just the sketch or Mix it Up and use both! It is totally up to you! You can find all the rules at SugarPea blog right here!!!

I just cannot resist to the cuteness and so I got my hands on the super adorable Fall Fox stamp set. To start, I stamped the fox and a few small elements on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof as my intention was to use watercolor markers for coloring.

And here’s the complete list of all Tombow markers used here: n.090, n.126, n.493, n.873, n.885, n.912, n.946, n.990, n.991.

For the layout I prepared a scalloped rectangle die cutting Countryside Charm Patterned Paper Collection pad with Card Front Element Builder and two circles using different sizes from Zig Zag Stitched Circles set. At this point, I also heat embossed the sentiment from the same Fall Fox stamp set with a white embossing paste on a piece of black cardstock and shaped it as a fish-tailed banner with the scissors. I don’t have the coordinating dies for Fall Fox stamp set and so I used again the small sharp scissors and fussy cut all the colored images leaving a little white edge around. Finally I started assembling everything with a bit of dimension popping some elements a foam adhesive and wrapped around some red and white twine to tie all pieces together.

Feeling Slothy Need Coffee #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Slothy Coffee stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

New just released Slothy Coffee stamp set was so perfect to play with. I die cut using the coordinating Slothy Coffee Die Set the cute sloth in the coffee cup from Strathmore Bristol paper, aligned the negative part of the die cut into a stamping positioning tool and stamped the image with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. The fall twist to the card gave some pumpkins from Harvest Tails and a few falling leaves from Newton’s Cornucopia stamp and die sets. All the stamped elements were colored with Tombow and Zig markers which exact list I’m leaving here:

TOMBOW MARKERS: n.090, n.126, n.885, n.912, n.946, n.990, n.991, n.992.
ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH MARKERS: n.41 Light Green, n.50 Yellow, n.52 Bright Yellow, n.70 Orange, n.71 Flesh Colour.

The background was made from a watercolor paper trimmed slightly smaller than an A2 size card base. I added some water washes with regular watercolors using the same color range and I used previously on the stamps. Finally the sentiment from the same Slothy Coffee set was simply stamped on the watercolor panel and all the elements were assembled with a bit of dimension.

Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Thankful Thoughts stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

On my project I decided to build a stamped background using one of the sentiments from Thankful Thoughts set. To start, I masked a rectangle directly on the card front and repeatedly stamped the sentiment using different shades of orange inks for an ombré effect. Next I die cut and stamped a cute squirrel and a few small elements using new just released Harvest TailsNewton’s Thanksgiving stamp and die sets and finally colored all the elements with copic markers and assembled everything with a bit of dimension.

As always, I’m leaving you the complete list of all the copic markers used here: E30-E31-E35; squirrel Y21-YR23-YR27-E99; YG01-YG95; YR00-YR04; Y13-Y15-Y17.

Once die cut the sloth with the coordinating Slothy Coffee Die Set from Strathmore Bristol paper and stamped the coordinating image from Slothy Coffee stamp set with a VersaFine Onyx Black ink, I colored it with a water based markers. At this point I also added a few cups to my design using Cuppa Cactus stamp set and Cuppa Cactus Die sets. Next I die cut a stitched frame using Frames & Flags die set and blended some yellowy-orange tones of Distress inks through Sunscape stencil. Finally, before assembling everything together, I simply stamped the sentiment from the same Slothy Coffee  stamp set.

Finally it’s turn of Tea-Rex stamp and die sets with a super cute dino.

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

Thinking about the design of this project, I thought it would be fun to recreate a tea bag. I stated with a new Tree Rings stencil and once the embossing paste was dry, I die cut a tag from Tag Times 2 Die Set in the center of the card front. I also use a small top element for my tag from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set and finally gathered the tag and the label with a heat embossed sentiment using a baker twine. Next I die cut using the coordinating dies, stamped and colored a Tea-Rex from Tea-Rex stamp set along with a few small cups from Newton Loves Coffee and Coffee & Wine stamp sets. Please note that these sets don’t have the coordinating dies, but the stamps can be easily fussy cut with a sharp pair of scissors. Assembling this projects I played with different layers and gave some dimension using double or three layers of a foam tape.

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Harvest Tails


Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs September Release!

All the new September products will be available for purchase on Friday, September 14th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Autumn Greetings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Harvest Tails stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

You know that I’m fond of cute kitties, kitty stamps and dies, but the adorable critters from new Harvest Tails stamp set have completely stolen my heart! This set definitely became one of my favorites! Besides the cute critters, it filled with super clever small stamps so useful for adding autumn feeling to the projects or building the cutest fall scenes. In case you’re interested, Harvest Tails stamp set comes with the coordinating dies.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Harvest Tails 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!

Here’s what I came up with working with Harvest Tails stamp set and Harvest Tails Die Set.

Autumn Greetings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Harvest Tails stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I prepared three crates with a climbing raccoon and some autumn pumpkins and apples. This is where the coordinating dies come super handy and save lots of time. First I made a super quick die cutting using Harvest Tails Die Set and Neenah Solar White paper, then aligned the negative part of the die cut elements into a stamping positioning tool and quickly stamped the coordinating images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next I spent some time coloring everything with copic markers.

These are all the colors used on the card: YR00-YR02-YR04-YR07-YR09; R22-R24-R29; Y11-Y15-Y17; YG01-YG05; E30-E33-E35-E37; raccoon C0-C1-C3-C7 plus R000-R30.

Working on the background, I masked the card base edges and blended from the bottom right corner a super light blue ink. Finally I popped all the elements on a foam tape along with a heat embossed sentiment from the same Harvest Tails set and finished with a coat of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen.

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Newton’s Pumpkin Patch


Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs September Release!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today because the new stamp set I’m showcasing today is simply fabulous with a real autumn feel! Psss… by the way, fall is my favorite season!!! LOL!!!

All the new September products will be available for purchase on Friday, September 14th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Sending You Piles of Pumpkin & Smiles #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

New Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set is another gorgeous addition to the collection of NND “big” stamps. Love the amazing design filled with tons of pumpkins and a few kitties peeking from behind. Such a unique design! This set don’t have the coordinating dies, but it goes perfectly with  Frames & Flags and Framework Die Sets.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Newton’s Pumpkin Patch 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!

Working on this project, I decided not to alterate the wonderful pile of pumpkins and invent a fancy design, but simply invest my time on coloring.

Sending You Piles of Pumpkin & Smiles #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I used good quality watercolor paper and stamped the image with a black waterproof ink (VersaFine Onyx Black). Next I tapped the paper to a hardboard to prevent it from wapping and spent quite some time coloring the stamp with regular watercolors. I have a customized watercolor palette made from Winsor & Newton, Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolors. Once dried, the watercolor piece was framed with Frames & Flags die set and popped on a kraft card base. Finally the matching sentiment from the same Newton’s Pumpkin Patch stamp set was simply heat embossed on a piece of a black cardstock and finished this project.
