Craftin Desert Divas October Mini Release – Balloon Parade

Happy Sunday!

Today I’m soooo excited to share a card made for the Craftin Desert Divas October Mini release!

Celebrate #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Balloon Parade stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas

This card is made using only one new, but so adorable Balloon Parade stamp set! I just love that “Celebrate” sentiment perfect for all occasion cards!

Celebrate #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Balloon Parade stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas

I starter by stamping a complete scene and die-cutting it with a stitched frame and then invested a lot of time on copic coloring and experimenting with soft pastel shade. I tried to keep the card very light, but add a bit of shading at the same time! Not sure if you manage to see all the nuances on the picture!

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release and Giveaway – Day 4 – Naughty or Mice & Santa Paws Newton


Hello and welcome to the last day of the Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release!

All the new October products will be available for purchase on Friday, October 20th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Not A Creature Was Stirring... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Naughty or Mice stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookCuteness overloads today on my blog!!! Two SUPER FUN, CUTE and ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE stamp sets Naughty Or Mice and Santa Paws Newton are coming to the NND store tomorrow and couldn’t wait to share them with you! Both of them as always have the coordinating dies. And let me tell you, all creature fans, you are going to love them!!!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving each new 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!

Here’s my first clean and simple card with the cutest little mouse from Naughty Or Mice stamp set. I went for a non traditional Christmas colors inspired by the bright yellow from the cheese part of the stamp, I decided to add the complementary purple color and create a little bit of contrast!

Not A Creature Was Stirring... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Naughty or Mice stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I stamped the cute creature on a Bristol paper with a waterproof ink, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies. In case you are interested, I’m leaving all the exact colors I used here at the bottom of this post. For the background I used the negative part of a circle mask and blended inside Sqeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seeds and Wild Holly Distress inks. I also used a new Holiday Foliage stencil in a creative way: I masked with a piece of posted tape the three berries and added them here and there creating a few matching accents. The sentiment from the same Naughty Or Mice set was simply heat embossed with a white embossing powder.

There would be no purr-fect release without the cutest mischief Newton! LOL! This time he has “got” somewhere the  Santa’s costume and feels like he is a real Santa! (Sorry, I can’t stop laughing myself every time I see this cuteness!) To be serious my second card features, of course, Santa Paws Newton stamp set.

I Believe #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The adorable stamps once more were die-cut with the coordinating dies and colored with Zig markers.

I Believe #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For the background I created a rectangle window on the additional panel and blended a few Distress Oxide inks directly on the card base. Interpreting this part as a sort of the night sky, I added falling snow using new Snowfall stencil and a white embossing paste. When I applied the embossing paste the ink was still a little wet and so it soaked into the embossing paste creating a fun soft look. A simple heat embossed sentiment and a few sequins finished this cute card.

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Stylish Stockings and Reindeer Roll Call


Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release!

Today all the Design Team continues to showcase the fantastic new stamps and dies! Are you ready?

All the new October products will be available for purchase on Friday, October 20th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Warm Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Stylish Stockings stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookToday I played with two fun stamp sets Stylish Stockings and super cute Reindeer Roll CallStylish Stockings comes with the coordinating dies and have some extra stitched pieces which allow you to use it on its own! Love that idea!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving each new 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!

       
All the stampers will be excited about new Stylish Stockings stamps set! Creating a stamped pattern on this card, I arrange all the stamps from this set on a piece of an A2 size cardstock, picked and inked them all at once with a red dye ink (in case you are wondering, I used here Lipstick Red from Simon Says Stamps). Then I repeated the stamping process once more covering the missing parts and the pattern was done. Super quick and easy!

Warm Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Stylish Stockings stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The I prepared a few gold accents die-cutting the coordinating dies from a glitter paper that I found in my local craft store and adding the stitched pieces here and there. A few extra gold details and a heat embossed sentiment from the same Stylish Stockings stamp set finished this simple card.

Warm Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Stylish Stockings stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

And Dasher, and Dancer, and… How it goes then? LOL!!! Now you never forget a single reindeer from Santa’s sleigh with a super fun and cute Reindeer Roll Call stamp set!

Reindeer Roll Call #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Reindeer Roll Call stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookThis set is definitely a great idea for a super quick and easy (sometimes last minutes! LOL!) cards. I decided to heat emboss the sentiment on a kraft cardstock with a white embossing powder and then popped it up on the same kraft card base where I created a tone on tone pattern by stamping the small reindeers and snowflakes with VersaMark ink and heat embossing with a clear mat embossing powder from WOW.

Reindeer Roll Call #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Reindeer Roll Call stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To bring a bit of color I used a few extra dies from Pines & Holly die set and made a super simple coloring with colored pencils. Finally Nuvo Crystal Drops in Red Berry color added an extra shiny and glossy touch and finished this card.

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Snow Globe Scenes and Snow Globe Shaker Die


Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release!

Today all the Design Team continues to showcase you fantastic new stamps and dies! Are you ready?

All the new October products will be available for purchase on Friday, October 20th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Merry Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookWell, NND is came up with a very clever bundle including Snow Globe Scenes stamp set, the coordinating dies and Snow Globe Shaker Die set that will bring your holiday projects on a whole other level and will allow you to add very easily interactive shaker elements. And who doesn’t like fun interactive cards?

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving Snow Globe Scenes 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!

No need to tell you that this shaker bundle has infinite possibilities of use and will suit any paper crafting project! And so my first card shows it in action!

Merry Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookI combined here Snow Globe Shaker Die and some stamps from Snow Globe Scenes that were heat embossed with a white embossing powder on a gradient watercolor background! I’m also super excited to announce that NND is bringing to their shop the coordinating accessories essential for making the shaker snow globe element. My readers probably know that I never had a success die-cutting a foam and used to stuck a few layers of the cardstock building shaker elements! Well, I was really AMAZED with this fabulous double-sided foam! I ran the shaker frame from Snow Globe Shaker Die set back and forth in my Big Shot machine using the platform closed for the wafer thin dies and the foam was cut out and hold the shape perfectly! Wow!!!

Merry Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Shaker Die by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I used two layers of the foam tape assembling this card to bring more space inside for the beads and sequins, but you can definitely use only one layer since this foam is quite thick! And, of course, I just couldn’t not to use the “merry” die because I’m a big fan of sentiment dies and love adding them to my designs. Finally the heat embossed small word Christmas from Simply Seasonal stamp set finished this card.

'tis The Season #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Scenes stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookMy second card is totally different and shows you how to use Snow Globe Scenes stamp set by itself since it filled with a whole bunch of the cute images great to build cute winter or holiday scenes.

'tis The Season #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Snow Globe Scenes stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Creating this simple card, I decided to use my copic markers and traditional Christmas colors! I stamped some images directly on top of the card base while the other elements were die-cut with the coordinating dies and added with a bit of dimension toward the bottom part on the card front. The sentiment was simply stamped with the same black ink I used for the scene stamps and a few clear sequins added a finish touch.
