Hello and welcome!

Today I have an extra special post to share with you! It’s all about 10th Annual Caring Hearts Card Drive hosted by super talented Vera Yates! The purpose of this card drive is to collect handmade holiday cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes or live alone. Please check Vera’s blog for all the details and how you can participate!

As a part of Caring Hearts Card Drive SugarPea Designs is excited to release a very special stamp set today!!!

This special stamp set is called Christmas Cheer and has been almost a year in the making. Please note that SugarPea Designs will be donating 20% of all proceeds from the sale of the Christmas Cheer stamp sets to the Alzheimers Association.

And here’s what I came up with for you today! To start, I stamped some cuties from Christmas Cheer stamp set, colored them with copic markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: R01-R02-R05-R08-R29; YG01-YG05-YG07-YG09; BG000-BG02; C00-C1-C3; YR30-Y21-YR24-YR27; E30-E31-E33.

The background was framed with a dotted rectangle large enough to cover a whole A2 size card front die cut from Card Front Element Builder II set. I also die cut a circle window inside using Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCut and snow hill using a stitched line die from Card Front Element Builder set. The blue sky behind the critters was inked directly on the card base using Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink and the Falling Snow effect was added through the stencil with a plain white embossing paste. Finally I assembled all the elements together with a bit of dimension and finished with a generous coat of Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Shimmer pen.

A regular A2 size card base was made from the same Neenah Solar White paper I used before for stamping. I inked a light blue sky using Tumbled Glass Distress ink directly on the card front and added a Falling Snow effect through the stencil with a plain white embossing paste. I finished the layout by die cutting three snow hills with Card Front Element Builder SugarCut and popping the all the layers on a foam tape. Finally a coat of a clear glitter shimmer pen added a bit of holiday cheer to this clean and simple project!

STAMPtember Exclusive: Let’s Pawty Stamp Set from Newton’s Nook Designs

Celebrate #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - exclusive STAMPtember Let's Pawty stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

Today Newton’s Nook Designs is featured on the Simon Says Stamp site with an EXCLUSIVE stamp set that was designed just for the 2019 STAMPtember celebration!

You can purchase the new Newton’s Nook Let’s Pawty clear stamp set at Simon Says Stamp. Remember, this item is ONLY available through Simon Says Stamp while supplies last!

My card turned out quite clean and simple! I picked a super adorable kitty from Let’s Pawty stamp set along with a few birthday accessories, stamped and fussy cut them right against the stamp lines. Next I colored the images with copic markers and covered any imperfection due to the fussy cutting by brining a black brush marker across the edges.

And here’s the list of all the exact colors used on today’s project: COPIC cat W00-W0-W1-W2-W3-W5 plus T0-T3; YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG13-YG67; BG10-BG11-BG23-BG49; Y11-Y15-Y17-YR04; RV00-RV02-RV04-RV10.

A regular A2 size background made from Neenah Solar White paper was embellished through Confetti stencil with a white embossing paste for a tone on tone look. An additional stitched square die cut from vellum with Frames Squared Die Set was placed underneath the kitty along with a sentiment from the same Let’s Pawty set heat embossed on a strip of a black cardstock. A generous coat of a clear shimmer pen and a few matching sequins finished this project.

My first card features gorgeous Lemon Twist stamp set. I love the amazing design and the size of the stamps very much and so I decided to challenge myself with a CAS style and no-line coloring.

When Life Gives You Lemons #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lemon Twist stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White paper slightly smaller than a regular A2 size card base and stamped the lemon slice with a light yellow ink. I also prepared a mask out of a masking paper so that I could add a whole fruit behind with the same light yellow ink I used before.

When Life Gives You Lemons #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Lemon Twist stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I colored the stamps with copic markers first and then added some details with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils blending together different colors.

Here’re the colors of the copic markers used on this card: COPIC Y00-Y11-Y13-Y15; YG21-YG93-YG95-YG97.

Hey, Gull Friend! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gull Friends stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The super fun Gull Friends were stamped with Hybrid black ink from MFT and colored with copic markers too.

I used here COPICS T0-T1-T2-T3-T5-T7; Y11-Y17-Y18; YR23-YR27-E08-E39-E49; RV00.

Hey, Gull Friend! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gull Friends stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I prepared a regular A2 size card base plus another slightly smaller rectangle where I partially die cut a circle window. Creating a little sea scene I inked waves and clouds through new Waves & Splashes and Clouds edge stencils with two different shades of blue inks. I also added a die cute wave line in front of the Gull Friends by die cutting it from Sea Borders Die Set.

Hey, Gull Friend! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gull Friends stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Arranging all the elements on a foam tape, I added a simply stamped sentiment from Gull Friends set on a die cut Speech Bubble and finished with a few matching sequins.

You're One In A Melon! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Melon stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Last but definitely not least comes adorable kitty from Newton’s Melon stamp and die sets. Once again I used Neenah Solar White paper and MFT Hybrid black ink paired with copic markers for coloring the sweetest stamp.

Here’s the complete list of all the color used: COPIC cat E40-E41-E42-E43-E44-E49 plus T1 and R11-R12; YG00-YG01-YG05-YG09; R02-R05-R09-R89; 100.

You're One In A Melon! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Melon stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I decided to keep the whole project with a limited color combo and so I inked pink clouds through new Clouds edge stencil with Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral Distress inks. The grass portion was added through another new Hills & Grass edge stencil with Twisted Citron and Moved Lawn Distress inks. I framed the sweet summery scene with Frames & Flags Die Set and popped on a 4 Bar while card base since it fitted better the size of the stamp.
