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

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!

Harvest Blessings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There would be no purr-rect Newton’s Nook Designs release without the adorable kitty Newton! Right?! And I think that all Newton’s fans will not be disappointed with this new gorgeous stamp set called Autumn Newton. Like other sets, Autumn Newton comes with the coordinating dies.

Harvest Blessings #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I think that there’s no need to put much thoughts on the card design when you work with such fabulous stamps. Just crab any little scene from Autumn Newton stamp set, stamp it, add some color and you will end up with a stunning result for sure.

Be Thankful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

And so I decided to make two almost one layer watercolor cards. I used for both projects a cold pressed watercolor paper from Arches since I needed some paper that hold well the water and played a little with a regular watercolors. I currently use a palette that I set up myself using watercolors from different brands. But you can use any watercolors you have on hand.

Be Thankful #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

On my first card I went for a soft look using a brown ink instead of a usual black one. I built a scene making a little bit of masking and used two images from Autumn Newton plus a pumpkin stamp from Simply Seasonal set. On the second card I simply stamped the cute kitties and invested more time creating a watercolor background. Of course, the kitties were colored like my adorable mischiefs.

Loads of Thanks – Stretch Your Stamps Card Series (ft. MFT Stamps)

mft-loads-of-thanks-2016-1

Hello guys!

I’m back with a post for the Card Design Superstar contest hosted by My Favorite Things and another example how you can stretch your craft supplies. And, yes, finally autumn colors on my blog!!!  😉

I played with the adorable Loads of Thanks stamp set and came out with a simple one layer design with some “wow” elements and a lot of details: Perfect Pearls and watercolor splotches, Ranger’s Stickles Star Dust Glitter, Glossy Accents, some doodling, a few sequins and little accents with a white gel pen.

mft-loads-of-thanks-2016-3

I would like to stop and spend a few words about simple masking I did on this card. No additional stamping or fussy cutting is necessary. I used posted notes to mask either the small leaves from the MFT’s Forest Friends set or the original Pure Innocence image. Here’s the step by step tutorial: first stamp a few leaves on the ground, use posted notes to avoid overlapping the stamp outlines, mask the pots inside the wagon before inking the stamp, then fill the top part of the wagon with other leaves and acorns using the same technique with posted notes, finally coat everything with a liquid mask. Once dried the liquid mask would protect your stamping while you are working on the background. In the end, peel off the liquid mask and color your image with any media you like (I used copic markers on my card).

That’s pretty much all for today! If you have any question, leave it in the comment area below. As always thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate it a lot!
