Deer Friend and Grazie Cards (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend 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 two sweet and cute cards!

Grazie #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Sweetheart stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I just cannot put aside new fantastic goodies from the Newton’s Nook Designs January release without stretching them more and had a lot of fun playing again with two of my favorites! So let’s see what I came up with this time!

You Are Such A Deer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

My first card features a super adorable and so incredibly cute Deer Friend stamp set. I really felt in loooove with the sweet fawns and so I grabbed the coordinating Deer Friend Die Set and die cut a bunch of elements from a watercolor paper, aligned them into my stamping positioning tool for a quick and easy stamping. Then I just enjoyed making a super simple watercoloring both on the stamps and the background with regular watercolors I have in my stash.

Once all the elements were dried, I heat embossed the sentiment from the same Deer Friend stamp set and assembled the card on a square 5″x5″ kraft base, adding some dimension with a foam tape.

My second card was colored with copic markers. That’s why I started it with Neenah Solar white paper and played with the super adorable couple of kitties from Newton’s Sweetheart stamp set. You know me: I just love to use stamps in a creative way. And since the kitties were reminding me my furry mischiefs, I decided to transform a love stamp into a thanks one and to make a personalized card to give to the girl who takes care of my kitties when I’m away from home! Once more I used the coordinating dies from Newton’s Sweetheart Die Set for a quick and easy die cutting. At this point I also prepared a few other die cut elements for the layout using Darling Hearts  and Frame & Flags die sets and created my own tone on tone pattern through Tumbling Hearts stencil. Coloring the kitties with copic markers I decided to try a new to me and very fun technique that made the cats look as if they were stuffed animals. And finally added “Grazie” sentiment from Newton Dreams of Italy stamp set that came sooooo handy to me because grazie means thanks in Italian.

For each challenge they post an amazing cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?Many Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Leaves Dies by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

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.

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

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! Then just share it with #CDDMONTHLY in the Craftin Desert Divas Facebook Gallery! If you aren’t a member, just request it here.

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.
