Cuteness overloads on the third day of the holiday release with A Kitten Christmas and Christmas Puppies stamp sets! Do you notice a new and absolutely adorable design of kitties from NND? Love so much those big eyes and the funny mischievous expressions on the kitty’s faces! Both new stamp sets come with the coordinating A Kitten Christmas Die and Christmas Puppies Die sets.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both new A Kitten Christmas and Christmas Puppies stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

 

My first card that features A Kitten Christmas stamp and die sets, has a clean and simple design.

Meowy Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - A Kitten Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start I die cut from Copic X-Press paper the kitty shape and lots of Christmas lights, using the coordinating A Kitten Christmas Die Set and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. As always, I saved and used the negative parts of the dies to help me with the alignment while I was stamping the open images from A Kitten Christmas stamp set using MISTI tool and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I proceeded with copic coloring, making the kitty look like my sweet boy Tommy (Sacred Birman Cat).

For those who are wondering about the exact colors used on this project, I’m leaving all the numbers of COPIC MARKERS: cat E40-E41-E42-E43-E44-E47-E49; RV00-RV02-RV11-RV04-RV19; YG00-YG05-YR09; Y11-Y17-Y18; FV02-B63; YR02-YR04-YR07; BG10-BG13; B000-B04; T0-T1.

Meowy Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - A Kitten Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The background was inked directly on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper. I used new just released on Monday Tiny Trees stencil, Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the blending brush. Once tapped well the stencil on the card base to prevent any movement, I inked the pattern keeping my hand lighter towards the center of the card front. Then I lifted and shifted the stencil in order to add more inked trees between the rows as you see on the pictures. I added a few super tiny drops of a pearlescent solution just for something little extra along with a simply stamped sentiment that comes from the same A Kitten Christmas stamp set. I hand draw the light string and finally arranged the Christmas lights and the kitty.

There's Always Next Year To Be Good #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Puppies stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on my second card that features Christmas Puppies stamp and die sets, I decided to mix and match it with A Kitten Christmas since both stamps has the same size and style! I did exactly the same steps as on a previous card die cutting and stamping the fun puppy and the kitty, but using Strathmore Bristol paper and VersaFine Onyx Black ink this time since my intention was to color the stamps with water based markers. An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from a kraft cardstock. I added on top the cute holiday pattern by inking another newbie – Reindeer stencils with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink for a tone on tone look. I partially covered the card front with a vellum rectangle die cut with Frames & Flags Die Set where I heat embossed the funniest pun from A Kitten Christmas stamp set. Assembling all the elements together, I popped the cute critters on foam tape and finished with a few clear sparkling sequins.

As always, I’m sharing with you all colors used by me on the second project: TOMBOW MARKERS N55, N79, 126, 133, 847, 856, 899, 905, 946, 947, 977, 991, 992, 993.

Pa Rum Pum Pum Pum #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Nutcrackers stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Today I’m so excited to share with you two new absolutely adorable stamp sets: Dear Santa and Nutcrackers. Both of them are just perfect for every holiday project! In case you’re interested, there’re two coordinating Dear Santa Die and Nutcrackers Die sets too!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away both new Dear Santa and Nutcrackers stamp sets to lucky winners so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

My first card featuring Dear Santa stamp and die sets turned out as a CAS project. To start, I die cut from Copic X-Press paper the Santa and gift shapes using the coordinating Dear Santa Die Set and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I saved and used the negative parts of the dies inside the MISTI tool to help me with the alignment while I was stamping the open images from Dear Santa stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next I colored all the elements with copic markers.

In case you’re interested, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used for coloring: COPIC MARKERS skin E50-E53-E55; R000-R20-R22-R24-R27-R46; YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG03-YG25-YG67; Y11-Y13-Y15-Y17; YR04-YR07; T0-T1-T3-T5-T7-T9.

Here Comes Santa Claus #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Dear Santa stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper. I repeatedly stamped with a very light gray ink (Simon Says Stamp Fog dye ink) the small accessories from Dear Santa and Christmas Campers stamp sets all across the background and then added a bold black sentiment on top. I popped the colored Santa and gifts on a foam tape and finished with a few clear sparkling sequins, a coat of a shimmer glitter pen and some white accents made with a gel pen.

My second card features Nutcrackers stamp and die sets plus new just released yesterday Tiny Trees stencil. This time I started with Strathmore Bristol paper and VersaFine Onyx Black ink since my intention was to color the images with water based markers. I made the same steps as describe above, first die cutting two nutcracker shapes with the coordinating Nutcrackers Die Set and then stamping the open images from Nutcrackers stamp set. Finally I proceeded with  coloring using my Tombow markers.

As always, I’m sharing with you all colors used on this project as well: TOMBOW MARKERS N25, N79, 025, 055, 835, 847, 905.

An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) that was trimmed and scored from my favorite Neenah Solar White paper. I added a slightly smaller light gray rectangle on top with the holiday tree pattern achieved by inking Tiny Trees stencil with the matching light gray ink (used Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock and dye ink). Next I trimmed and glued directly on the background some narrow strips of the colorful cardstock and finally popped the Nutcrackers on a foam tape. The final step was a die cut sentiment that comes inside the coordinating Nutcrackers Die Set.

Home For The Holidays #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Campers stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The Design Team is kicking off this week, filled with TONS of new stunning stamps, dies and stencils, showcasing amazing Destination Christmas and Christmas Campers stamp sets!

On my stop of this hop you’ll find two cute and simple winter scenes both colored with Tombow markers! To start, I die cut all the shapes I needed for both cards from Strathmore Bristol paper using the coordinating Destination Christmas Die and Christmas Campers Die sets. I saved the negative parts of the dies and used them inside my MISTI tool for a perfect alignment while I was making the stamping using Destination Christmas and Christmas Campers stamp sets and VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Finally I proceeded with coloring.

Across The Miles At Christmas Time #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Destination Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Working on the first card featuring Destination Christmas sets. I created some snow slopes and hills using Land Borders Die Set and Tim Holtz Distress cardstock. I inked the sky portion and the top part of the hills with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink using the blending brush; added some tiny drops of a pearlescent solution and let everything air dry. The sky was enriched with a few stamped tone on tone snowflakes that come from Christmas Campers stamp set. I used the same Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink for stamping and then added more falling snow with some splatters of a white gouache.

Across The Miles At Christmas Time #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Destination Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Finally I started building up the snowy scene by adhering the top part directly to an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White paper and by popping the hills with a bit of dimension.

As always, I’m sharing with you all colors used on the first project featuring Destination Christmas sets: TOMBOW MARKERS N25, N55, N79, 062, 173, 195, 373, 847, 856, 905, 992.

Home For The Holidays #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Campers stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

As the previous card, Christmas Campers were arranged on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) that was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper. The winter scene was die cut with Land Borders Die and Circle Frames Die sets. The sky was inked with Shaded Lilac and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks using the blending brush, embellished with a falling snow applied with a plain white embossing paste through Petite Snow stencil and then covered with a vellum layer to give more depth and dimension to the background. Finally I added a simply stamped matching sentiment, popped the colored stamps on a foam tape and finished with a few clear irridiscent sequins.

And here’s the complete list of all the colors used on Christmas Campers card: TOMBOW MARKERS N15, N65, N75, 055, 195, 243, 623, 723, 761, 845, 992.

Holiday Card Series 2020 – From Out Gnome To Yours (ft. SugarPea Designs)

From Our Gnome To Yours #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gnome For Christmas stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog!!! Today I came up with a clean and simple holiday card highlighting the cute Gnome for Christmas stamp set!

To start, I die cut all the shapes I needed for this project using the coordinating Gnome for Christmas SugarCut and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I worked on Strathmore Bristol paper and stamped the outline images from Gnome for Christmas stamp set with with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since both these products work excellent with water based markers. The negative parts of the dies came very handy and made the perfect guide for the alignment inside the stamping positioning tool. Finally I colored all the stamps with Tombow markers, blending the colors with the small waterbrush from Pentel.

And here’s the complete list of all the colors used by me on this card: TOMBOW MARKERS N25, N79, 158, 177, 195, 526, 856, 905, 992.

From Our Gnome To Yours #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Gnome For Christmas stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) white card base was trimmed and scored from Neenah Solar White paper along with a faux stitched rectangle with three square windows inside both die cut from Card Front Elements 3 SugarCut.  I prepared apart a sky background by inking a piece of Bristol paper with Faded Jeans Oxide Distress ink. I heat set the ink and then added the Falling Snow effect, by first taping the stencil to the paper and then applying a plain white embossing paste on top. I stamped the matching cute pun directly on the card front using the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink for a perfect match and started assembling all the elements together with a bit of dimension. The final touch gave a few clear iridescent sequins.

Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

New Pumpkin Charm stamp is already arranged in the most adorable Halloween scene and it’s quite large to fill the card front of an extended A2 size card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″). To start, I stamped on Strathmore Bristol paper the cute image with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. Next I fussy cut the whole scene, using a pair of sharp small scissors and leaving a little white edge around. I colored the stamp with water based markers, making the blending with a small waterbrush from Pentel.

The Halloween background was inked on a piece of watercolor cardstock from Tim Holtz. I used Seedless Preserve and Wilted Violet Distress inks along with the blending brushes and then applied a Spiderweb pattern through the stencil with a white embossing paste. I let the embossing paste air dry and meanwhile prepared a light gray card base  that measures 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ plus an additional rectangle with a partially die cut circle inside. I simply stamped the Halloween sentiment that comes with Pumpkin Charm stamp on the white part of the card front and finally assembled all the elements with a bit of dimension.

As always, I’m leaving you the complete list of all the markers used on this project: TOMBOW N79, 025, 055, 062, 090, 133, 636, 703, 933, 946, 977; ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH n.61 Light Brown.
