Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge – September 2017

A Note Of Thanks #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Border dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Happy Friday and welcome!

I’m up on Craftin Desert Divas blog today with a card that is focused on dies and was inspired by the beautiful moad boad made for the CDD September Monthly Social Media Challenge! The current theme is autumn and it couldn’t be any perfect for this time of the year! Look at those gorgeous autumn colors and amazing images!

Of course, I had to play more with the fantastic dies from CDD September release. Those beautiful stitched trees come with Fall Border Dies set.

A Note Of Thanks #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Fall Border dies by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The idea was to create an autumn scene with a circle focal point and add a bit of dimension for some inserest. This project is super easy to recreate and doesn’t require mad coloring skills at all. My choice were Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers since I just love their bold vibrabt colors, but you can use any watercolor media you have on hand or even you Distress or dye inks. My win win combo with Zig markers is Strathmore Bristol paper and a small water brush from Pentel. I made a simple splotchy non perfect watercoloring and while the dies were drying I started working on the card base. I scored in half 11″ by 4¼″ piece of a red card stock and cut out an additional slithtly smaller white panel where I die cut a circle using Stitched In Circle Dies.

Finally assembling the card I adhered the watercolored trees directly to the card base using a foam tape and then popped on top the circle piece where I previously stamped a sentiment from Harvest Happiness stamp set. Of course, couldn’t skip a few matching sequins from Maple Leaves Sequins set.

That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you’ll join Craftin Desert divas September Monthly Social Media Challenge for a chance to win some amazing prizes!

Hello and welcome to the last day of the Newton’s Nook Designs September Release!

I swear that all Newton’s fans and crazy cat ladies like me (LOL!!!) were waiting for a new kitty set and this one will not disappoint you for sure!!!

All the new September products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, September 15th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookNo need to tell you that I’m super excited about this new stamp set since it couldn’t be any cuter and now you can finally dress your sweet pets in fun costumes! At least on your cards! LOL!!! All that crazy cuteness comes with Newton’s Costumes Party stamp set and the coordinating dies which have an additional value in this case! But if you don’t have the die cutting machine, no worries, read this post to find out how you can use this stamp set without the coordinating dies!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Newton’s Costume Party 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!
 My first card is super simple and cute! I die cut the cutie kitty and the accessorizes and then made stamping with a black waterproof ink aligning the negative part of the die in my stamping positioning tool!

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookOnce finished watercoloring with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, I made a super simple watercolor night sky background with regular watercolors this time and applied some stars with a white embossing paste and Starfield Stencil.

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookAssembling the card, I added a die cut circle colored as the moon and some clouds die cut from Sky Borders die set. Finally I stamped the sentiment with the same black ink I used before and added afew finish touches: a shimmer pen and some sequins!

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookDon’t have a die cutting machine! No worries!!! My second card shows you how to use Newton’s Costumes Party stamp set without the coordinating dies! A simple masking technique will help you to dress up the cute kitties!

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookBasically for masking technique you need to stamp the costume first then stamp it again on a masking paper or post it, cut out a mask and apply it on top of you stamped costume and only then proceed with stamping the kitty. When you lift the mask, you’ll get the dressed kitty.

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Costume Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookOn my card I decided to reproduce the same scene, making almost one layer card with the same masking technique I talked before! Here are the steps to follow for the complete scene: stamp and mask the costume first, stamp and mask the kitty, die cut from Sky Borders die set and apply the cloud line, finally die cut a circle and place it as the moon. Add color to the sky with ink blending technique and the stars with Starfield Stencil. Lift up only the moon part of the mask and add color to it. Finally lift up all other masks and color the kitty. Honestly it’s not difficult at all as it may seem and doen’t take too much time!!!

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


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

All the new September products will be avaliable for purchaise on Friday, September 15th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

No Bones About It #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spooky Skeletons stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookToday NND is releasing not one, but TWO fantastic stamp sets! The first one is called Spooky Halloween and it’s super cute and super simple to use! Really such a clever design! The second one “Beautiful Bones” is an addition to the beautiful swirls collection and it’s so much fun and easy to color! Both sets come with the coordinating dies!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Spooky Halloween and Beautiful Bones stamp sets away to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

Here’s my interpretation of Spooky Halloween stamp set! I die cut a dog and a bat cutouts using the coordinating dies, aligned them in my stamping positioning tool using the negative part of the dies so that I could stamp twice and get a crisp black images.

No Bones About It #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spooky Skeletons stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Then I prepared an ink blended night scene die cutting a circle with NND Land Borders die set and heat embossing the moon and some stars from the same Spooky Halloween set with a white embossing powder!

No Bones About It #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spooky Skeletons stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

A few stars were added to a light gray background through Starfield Stencil just for something little extra that would tie all the elements together and finally the sentiment was simply stamped with the same black ink I used for the skeletons.

Forever In Our Hearts #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Beautiful Bones stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookMy second card featuring Beautiful Bones stamp set was inspired my the Mexican Day Of The Dead (Día de Muertos in spanish) and so I went for a super bright rainbow colors on the beautiful skull. I also stamped and colored a few swirly hearts and transformed them in flowers since they are very characteristic for this holiday as well!

Forever In Our Hearts #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Beautiful Bones stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookWorking on the card base, I repeatedly stamped the small heart and then added a vellum panel on top where I heat embossed the sentiment from Furr-ever Friends stamp set. A few black accents added a finish touch to this colorful card.

Forever In Our Hearts #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Beautiful Bones stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookWould you like to win the “Spooky Skeletons” or “Beautiful Bones” Stamp Set?
