Orange, green and brown seemed to me a perfect color combo for an autumn thanks card! Plus it’s always so handy to have a few thanks cards in the stash! Playing around the autumn theme, I decided to use beautiful leaves from Newton’s Nook Designs Autumn Leaves die set as a focal point.

Many Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook


I die-cut some leaves and acorns from a watercolor cardstock along with a cute little tag from NND Tags Times Two die set and blended on top a few shades of Distress inks.

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.

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

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! All you need to do is to create a project inspired by the current mood board and using at least one CDD brand product!

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.

I’m so excited to introduce you today the very first stamp set of this fabulous autumn release along with a gorgeous beautiful stencil! So let’s start!!!

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!

Truly Grateful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookNND came out with some different and absolutely stunning products this month!

Those leaves look so realistic and I assure you that they are even more beautiful in real life!!! Of course, as other NND stamp sets there are available the coordinating dies! And no need to tell you a lot about new Falling Leaves stencil! It’s absolutely amazing!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Shades of Autumn 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!

 

And here’s my first card featuring both new products!

Truly Grateful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I started with an ombre stamping aligning the leave stamps in a stamping positioning tool! First I inked the stamps with the lightest shade of the dye ink and after added some darker spots for more dimention and interest! I dabbed the stamps with a clean cloth before transfering the ink to the paper to soften the edges and achieve more gradient look!

Truly Grateful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookThe leaves from Shades of Autumn stamp set are pretty big so I tried to leave the card background quite clean and simple. I added a bit of color ink smooching Peacock Feathers Distress ink, heat embossing the sentiment from the same stamp set with a Liquis Platinum embossing powder on a piece of a black card stock, adding tone on tone details on one side throuhg Falling Leaves stencil and finally adding some matching splotches and a few glossy details!

Give Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookOn my second card I made a circle focal point in the center of the card base and heat embossed the beautiful handwritten sentiment in white on a kraft card base that come with Shades of Autumn stamp set!

Give Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Shades of Autumn stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookThen I masked the sentiment and added the falling leaves around it! I decided for a tone on tone gradient look that would match the kraft card base so I mixed my own shades of the embossing paste from a plain white one. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks for that. Once removed the stencil, I sprinkled some clear sparkling embossing powder on top, let everything air dry for about 40 minutes and heat set the embossing powder only at that point! Finally I assembled everything adding a few colorful details!
