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

Happy Thursday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you another look at the super fun and cute Santa Paws Newton stamp set!

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

You probably know that I’m a huge fan of the cute mischief designed by NND and love to color him like my kitties. And so I just couldn’t let Santa Paws Newton stamp set die in my stash without a chance to appear on this year holiday cards.

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

Creating this cheerful and bright watercolor card, I played with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers. I used this particular color media a lot during last year and figured out my win win combo that gives me the best results: Bristol paper from Strathmore brand plus a watercolor brush from Pentel. While the watercolor images were drying, I prepared a simple layout die-cutting a scalloped rectangle from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set and adding a little bit of texture and interest with a white embossing paste applied through Snowfall stencil. While the embossing paste was still wet, I sprinkled a clear glitter on top and let everything air dry before removing the excess. This further step gave a frosty and snowy feeling to the card. Finally I assembled all the elements with a bit of dimension popping up the images on a foam tape.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

You Make Cold Days Warmer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Toucan Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

There couldn’t be any proper date for this hop because today December, 8 in Italy we celebrate Feast of the Immaculate Conception! It’s day off and it’s tradition to deck the halls right on this day!!! So meanwhile you’re reading this post, I’m putting up my christmas tree, lights and nativity scene. It really beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! LOL!!!

You Make Cold Days Warmer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Toucan Party stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

For this hop I created a clean and simple card with a pop of bright colors on a tropical birds dressed up for holiday period! I thought it would be fun to give another “life” and interpretation to the summer stamps and transform them into the holiday ones! And so I started stamping with a black waterproof ink on a hot pressed watercolor paper the cute toucans from NND Toucan Party stamp set along with some winter accessories from Newton’s Holiday Mischief and Santa Paws Newton sets. I colored everything with regular watercolors, fussy cut right up against the stamp lines and colored all the edges with a black marker to hide any imperfection due to the cutting. For the background I used a negative part of the circle die-cut from a masking paper, added Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers color. I let everything dry before applying a textured snowflakes through gorgeous Snowfall stencil  using a white embossing paste. Finally I assembled everything popping up some elements on a foam tape and simply stamping the sentiment and a few beautiful snowflakes with the same black ink I used before.

You probably know that I’m a huge fan of the cute mischief designed by NND and love to color him like my kitties. And so I just couldn’t let Santa Paws Newton stamp set die in my stash without a chance to appear on this year holiday cards.

Here Comes Santa Paws #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Santa Paws Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnookI started this card by stamping the kitty image and the little mouse with a copic friendly ink on a copic friendly paper since my intention was to make coloring part, as you may guess, with copic markers. LOL!!! Once finished with coloring, I die-cut both stamps using the coordinating dies and worked on the layout! I added some coordinating colors to the background through Snowfall stencil with Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac Distress inks and an ink blending tool. Next came a focal point created out of a tag and stitched snow slops die-cut from Fancy Edges Tag Die Set  and Land Border Die Set. Once added the colors with the same Distress inks I used previously on the card base and the texture with a white gel pen to the little snow scene, I heat embossed the sentiment with Liquid Platinum embossing powder from Ranger, popped a few elements on a foam tape for some dimension and finally added a few non distracting sequins.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Cuteness overloads on my post today with the new super adorable Llama Delivery e Newtons Candy Cane stamp sets. Both of them come with the coordinating dies.

Special Delivery #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Llama Delivery stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

And here’s my first card! I love the look of white on kraft and so I prepared a kraft card base and applied some beautiful snowflakes through Snowfall stencil using a white embossing paste. While the background was drying, I die-cut and stamped the cutie lama and colored it with copic markers. Then I prepared the matching fish-tale banner adding the color to it with the same red markers I used previously on the stamp. Finally I popped up on a foam tape all the elements and added a white coat of Nuvo Drops on the small heart for some interest and shine.

I went for a kraft card base and traditional Christmas colors on my second card as well, playing with new super adorable  Newtons Candy Cane stamp set! First of all I stamped colored and fussy cut right up against the stamp lines the cute holiday mischief. Then I die-cut from a green cardstock a bunch of pine branches using Pines & Holly die set.

Whishing You A Sweet Holiday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Candy Cane stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Assembling the card, I helped myself to create a perfect wreath by tracing with a pencil a circle (you can use any round shape you have on hand for that) and adhered the pine branches. Then I popped up on a foam tape the kitty and the sentiment.

Whishing You A Sweet Holiday #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Candy Cane stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I punched a whole on the very corner of the fish-tale banner and tied a bow using a red and white twine and finally added a generous coat of Nuvo Drops in red color to the berries. And of course, I also just couldn’t escape a bit of shimmer since it’s a holiday card! Right?! LOL!!!

Peppermint Spice And Everything Nice #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cup Of Cocoa stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

And here’s the close up look on the Cup of Cocoa stamp set filled with super adorable cups of any type! I just couldn’t resist to stamp with a waterproof black ink and color a whole bunch of these delicious images on Strathmore Bristol paper. Once fussy cut right up against the stamp lines, I arranged them in a rainbow order.

Peppermint Spice And Everything Nice #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cup Of Cocoa stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I loved a cheerful and bright look that Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers gave to the cups and so I decided to keep the background very light and clean. Creating the watercolor background, I played with gray and white shades, applying white snowflakes through Snowfall stencil on a light gray background and then stamping a few gray snowflakes from Snow Globe Scenes stamp set on a white background.

Let It Snow #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Frozen Fellowship stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

And here’re the adorable frozen friends from Frozen Fellowship stamp set! This amazing big image offers so many possibilities of use so that it was hard to make a choice! Finally I went for a circle shaker card with a bit of simple copic coloring!

Let It Snow #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Frozen Fellowship stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Once more the shaker bundle that NND is carrying in their shop now came super handy! And so the I used the double sided adhesive foam to add the dimension along with the clear acetate creating the card base.

Let It Snow #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Frozen Fellowship stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Since I want to keep the front of my card clean and simple, I stamped the “Let It Snow” sentiment from Snow Globe Scenes stamp set inside.
