Fun and Easy Techniques With Stencils – Texture and Shine for Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web Inspiration Week


Hello and welcome!
This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web are partnering for fabulous Fall, Halloween and Christmas inspiration! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps!

And here’s what I came up with! I kept everything really clean and simple today, but ended up with a bit of gorgeous texture and shine by using a Gina K Gold Glitz Glitter Gel from TOW and amazing Snowfall stencil from NND.
Please check the video tutorial below to see the whole card making process.

I started with a blue A2 size card base (I used Soft Navy color cardstock from Simon Says Stamp). Next I taped well both the card base and the Snowfall stencil with Purple Tape to my work surface and proceeded spreading  the Gold Glitz Glitter Gel with the Stencil Pal.

I set aside the card base and let it air dry really well. Meanwhile I prepared a big heat embossed sentiment inside the stitched frame die cut from Frames Squared Die Set. The sentiment comes with Ornamental Wishes set and I chose a matching fine gold embossing powder from Ranger for heat embossing. I placed a gold thread in the center of the card front and then glued the vellum panel with Zots Bling Minuscule Tiny Chiquitos Clear Adhesive Dots since they are transparent and mess free. Finally I decided to add a special message inside by heat embossing again a “SPARKLE” message from NND Sentiments Of The Season stamp set.

And here’s what I came up with for you today! I decided to play with Floral Pocket Tag SugarCut and create a space on the card front where you can insert a gift card, tickets or why not some money!

Joy #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Floral Pocket Tag Die by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

To start, I die cut all the elements from Floral Pocket Tag SugarCut on Strathmore Bristol paper and colored the flowers and the leaves with traditional Christmas shades of red and green.

I used TOMBOW markers for coloring on this project: 055, 126, 133, 845, 925.

The background was framed with a dotted rectangle die cut from Card Front Element Builder II die set and embellished with a beautiful pattern inked through just released this week Geo Snowflake Stencil. I also prepared a die cut sentiment to pop on the tag pocket die cut from Joy Word with Shadow SugarCut.

2019 SugarPea Designs Holiday Release: Day 3

Oh So Jolly #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Oh So Jolly stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of our SugarPea Holiday Product Release!

Today’s Introductions include… three new amazing SugarCuts Christmas Car, Joy Word with Shadow and Merry Word with Shadow. I’m a great fan of word dies and so excited about these new SugarCuts! Plus the SPD Holiday collection is adding another wonderful product: Oh So Jolly Sentiments stamp set!

Christmas Car SugarCut

Merry Word with Shadow SugarCut

Oh So Jolly Sentiments

And here’s what I came up with for you today! To start, I made a bunch of die cutting. I prepared a dotted rectangle panel die cut from Card Front Element Builder II and right in the center I die cut again the Snow Globe. I also die cut three Christmas trees from Christmas Car SugarCut. The snowy sky portion of the snow globe was inked with blue green tones of Distress inks and the trees with yellowy green tones. Before assembling all the elements together I heat embossed a big Holiday sentiment from Oh So Jolly Sentiments stamp set on a piece of heat resistant clear acetate and glued it from the back side on the dotted panel. I sealed the shaker part with a foam tape and popped the whole panel on a regular A2 size card base.

At this point I die cut once again the Snow Globe from a light gray cardstock and added the base to my card. I decided to keep this project clean and simple and so I skipped any other embellishment.

2019 SugarPea Designs Holiday Release: Day 2

I Come Bearing Gifts #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hey Winter stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the SugarPea Holiday Product Release!

I hope you’ll join SPD Design Team over the next 4 days because we’ll be sharing Sweet Peeks for the products that will be available for purchase starting this Friday, September 13th at 6 PM EST in the SPD Store.

Each day will be full of inspiration, and as always, you’ll have a shot at winning one of FIVE GIVEAWAYS!  All you need to do is leave a comment for your chance to win.

**Please note that links to our store for these new products will not go LIVE until 6PM EST on September 13th.**

Today’s Introductions include… absolutely adorable Hey Winter stamp set filled with some holiday cuties and awesome accessories plus the coordinating Hey Winter SugarCut. And more there are two new fantastic stencils: Falling Snow and Geo Snowflake. I’m a great fan of stencils and super excited to get my hands on these new patterns.

Falling Snow Stencil

Geo Snowflake Stencil

And here’s what I came up with for you today! Once again, I started with Strathmore Bristol paper and the coordinating Hey Winter SugarCut. Making die cutting first works better for me, but you can proceed vice versa: first stamp and then die cut the images. The cute bear and a few accessories from Hey Winter stamp set were stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof because my intention was to use watercolor markers.

As always, I’m leaving you the complete list of all TOMBOW markers used on this card: 133,173, 177, 528, 723, 845, 847, 873, 905, 990 plus Turquoise Water Brush Marker from Altenew.

I Come Bearing Gifts #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Hey Winter stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

I decided to keep everything clean and simple and stretch more Hey Winter stamp set. So I heat embossed the sentiment on a stripe of a black cardstock and created my own pattern paper repeatedly stamping “BRR…” directly on the card base with the same VersaFine Onyx Black I used before for a perfect match. So much fun and I used only one stamp set! Falling Snow Stencil was a perfect finish touch for my winter background. I inked a piece of Neenah Solar White paper with a light blue shade working from one corner and then added Falling Snow with a plain white embossing paste. I assembled all the elements together with a bit of dimension and a few clear sparkling sequins.

Gnome for Christmas

And here’s what I came up with for you today! To start, I die cut a bunch of shapes using Gnome for Christmas SugarCut from Strathmore Bristol paper and then stamped the coordinating images from Gnome for Christmas 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: N79, 036, 055, 076, 090, 133, 177, 528, 533, 837, 845, 847, 873, 905, 942, 977 plus ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH marker n.71.

The background was framed with a dotted rectangle die cut from Card Front Element Builder II. I used an inexpensive watercolor paper this time and my regular watercolors to make a splotchy night scene. I let it air dry and then added a few fun snowflakes through Geo Snowflake stencil with a white embossing powder. Pssssss! This is a little peek on a fun new product that will be released tomorrow. So stay tuned! Finally I could assemble all the elements by popping the background and all the colored stamps on a foam tape and adding a heat embossed sentiment from the same Gnome for Christmas set on a strip of a red cardstock.
