Eat Drink And Be Scary #handmade luminaries by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Creepy Cameos stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookToday I’m sharing a cute idea on how to make a DIY home decor for Halloween using beautiful and sophisticated stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs new Creepy Cameos stamp set, the coordinating dies and Cameo Frame Die!!!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Creepy Cameos 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!
 

Since I usually make cards, I thought it would be nice to come up with a DIY home decor and share some ideas for Halloween!!! By the way, the new Creepy Cameos stamp set and Cameo Frame Die seem soooo perfect for luminaries! I stared by creating some DIY paper bags out of vellum since vellum would let the light come through, but you definitely can use any thin paper for that or even get some paper bags from your local store. White or kraft colors will suit this projects very well! Once finished with the paper bags, I stamped the creepy cameos and the sentiment with a crisp black pigment ink and die cut them using the coordinating dies! There’s no coordinating die for the sentiment so it was simply fussy cut with my scissors. I was afraid to smudge the ink on the sleek vellum surface, but you can simply stamp or heat emboss the sentiment directly on top!

Eat Drink And Be Scary #handmade luminaries by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Creepy Cameos stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook Finally I die-cut a bunch of intricate cameo frames from a black cardstock and assembled all the elements. I decorated both sides of every bag putting a cameo image on one side and the sentiment on the other! So fun and easy! Why don’t you try it maybe with your children?!

Newton’s Nook Designs September Release and Giveaway – Day 1


Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Newton’s Nook Designs September Release!

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! Where all those fabulous ideas come from?! LOL!!! I don’t know the answer, but I’m totally in love with new Shades of Autumn stamp set! It’s very different from all the other solid stamps in my stash and gives absolutely amazing results all the times! 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!

All that cuteness comes with Harvest Happiness stamp set and was paired with Fall Border Dies and Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies to complete the layout!

Craftin Desert Divas – September Release – Happy Camper


Hello and welcome!

I’m sooooooo happy to share with you today a colorful card featuring new super adorable Happy Camper stamp set from the Craftin Desert Divas September release!!!

Yeti For Adventure? #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Camper stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I mixed and matched a few “old” Outdoor Landscape 2 and Fancy Frame dies with the new Happy Camper stamps creating this fun scene! Started with an A2 size piece of a Bristol paper, die cut all the landscape elements and added color with the regular Distress inks.

Yeti For Adventure? #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Camper stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Then I stamped a few cute critters from Happy Camper stamp set with a waterproof black ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, fussy cut leaving a little white edge around and finally added to the card base giving to some images a bit of dimension with a foam tape!

Yeti For Adventure? #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Camper stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I’ll be honest with you and confess that I totally forgot to stamp the sentiment here! LOL!!! And since I didn’t want neither mess with the finished card nor add any extra banners, I decided to stamp the “Yeti For Adventure?” sentiment inside and leave the card front clean and simple!

That all for today! Hope my colorful projects will inspire you!!!! If so, please, check Craftin Desert Divas Event Page on Facebook for more inspiration, amazing projects and sneak peeks from the Design Team, freebies and awesome giveaways! As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Craftin Desert Divas – September Release Sneak Peek – Happy Camper & Harvest Wishes


Hello and welcome!

Today I’m sooooo excited to introduce you TWO (yes, two) new stamp sets from Craftin Desert Divas September release!!! Are you ready?!

All the products from the CDD September release will be available for purchase on Friday September, 8 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop!

Under The Moon And Stars #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Camper stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The first card features a super adorable Happy Camper stamp set and it’s another completely one layer design! I did some masking to achieve this cute scene near the camp fire!!!

Under The Moon And Stars #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Camper stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

First of all, I die cut a circle out of Inside Scalloped Circle Dies and used a positive part of the mask as a guide to place a negative one! Then I stamped the cute night scene and masked the critters as well! Finally I made an ombre ink blending with Distress inks emulating the night sky and once removed the masks proceeded with a copic coloring!

Under The Moon And Stars #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Camper stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

The second card has some circles and ink blended background as the first one, but it was colored with a watercolor technique and my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers!!! I thought that a “cheese theme” would be soooo perfect for the cute little mice from Harvest Wishes stamp set!

Mice Kisses And Harvest Wishes #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Camper stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

Although these adorable critters are so small, I tried to add a few details to them, pairing with a super fun sentiment!

Mice Kisses And Harvest Wishes #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Camper stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas #craftindeserdivas

I few lovely sequins from Maple Leaves and Carnie Sequin mixes finished this adorable scene and brought some sparkle and shine along with a tiny splatters added to the background!
