Holiday Card Series 2019 – Happy New Year Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Happy New Year #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Celebrates stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a sweet and cute Happy New Year card!

I believe this is my last post for the Newton’s Nook this year and so New Year theme seemed to be perfect for this project. I flipped through my stash and found two wonderful Newton Celebrates and Newton’s New Year stamp sets that are so much fun to mix and match!

Happy New Year #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton Celebrates stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I die cut the cutest critters opening the champagne bottle and a couple of glasses from Neenah Solar White paper using the coordinating Newton Celebrates Die Set and Newton’s New Year Die Set. Then I stamped the open images from Newton Celebrates and Newton’s New Year stamp sets using a copic friendly ink and colored everything with copic markers.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used here: COPIC MARKERS E40-E41-E43; R02-R05-R08-R46; YG00-YG21-YG23-YG25; C00-C1-C2; Y0000-Y00-Y11-Y15-Y18; R0000-R11; E0000-E30-E31.

Designing this card, I thought that red and gold colors will fit the New Year Theme perfectly. And so I heat embossed the sentiment and a few spare confetti from Newton Celebrates and Newton’s New Year stamp sets using a super fine gold embossing powder. Then I inked a matching pattern through Confetti Stencil with Candied Apple Distress ink and heat set it with a clear matte embossing powder for a tone on tone look. Finally arranged all the elements on an A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) card base and added a couple of matching sequins adhering them with Multi Medium Matte glue.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous holiday season!

Hugs,

Cheers To You SugarCut

And here’s what I came up with for you today! A cute and colorful Happy New Year card!!! I played around with Cheers To You stamp set and tried to get out of it as much as I could. To start, I obviously die cut some glasses using the coordinating Cheers To You SugarCut from Strathmore Bristol paper and then stamped the coordinating images from Cheers To You stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink, helping myself with the negative parts of the die cuts for a perfect alignment. Next I took my watercolor markers and a small water brush from Pentel and colored all the stamps.

In case you’re wondering, here’s the complete list of all TOMBOW markers used on this project: N95, 055, 133, 173, 177, 195, 296, 443, 452, 665, 815, 856, 885, 873, 933, 946.

Working on the card base, I masked the bottom part of the card front and inked the top one with Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Wilted Violet Distress inks. I also added a tone on tone stamped fireworks using Fossilized Amber Oxide, Spiced Marmalade Oxide and Wilted Violet Oxide Distress inks for a festive look. Next I heat embossed the dotted border line on a strip of a black cardstock to ground the glasses and added the Happy New Year sentiment. All those elements come from the same Cheers To You stamp set. Wow! What a fun and versatile product!!! Finally I popped all the colored glasses on a foam tape and prepared a few small accessories using again the same Cheers To You stamp and die sets.

Light Up The Holiday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Lights stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today just to stay on topic I decided to put up some happy holidays lights on my card and play more with small, but super cute Holiday Lights stamp set. To start, I die cut a bunch of small lights using the coordinating Holiday Lights Die Set on Neenah Solar White paper. When you have to make multiple images the coordinating dies comes so handy and saves a lot of time! Since the light bulbs are such a simple shape, I decided to make no-line coloring with copic markers because it’s fun and allows you also to practice and try different color combos.

Light Up The Holiday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Holiday Lights stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stamped the light bulbs from Holiday Lights set with a light dye ink using my MISTI tool and the negative part of the die and finally colored all the lights with copic markers. Working on the background, I inked Gingham pattern with a very light gray ink and stamped in the center the matching sentiment from the same Holiday Lights stamp set. I traced two curved lines with a black marker to use as the light strings. Assembling the card, I popped all the colored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and added a generous coat of a clear shimmer pen.
As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the colors used on this project: COPIC T1- T3; V0000-V01-V04; RV00-RV10-RV02; RV21-RV23-RV25; R02-R05; Y00-Y11-Y15; G00-G02-G03; B0000-B00-B01-B02; YG00-YG01-YG13; YR00-YR02-YR04; BG10-BG11-BG13; BG0000-BG000-BG10-BG23; B21-B24-BG70.
