Happy Halloween #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Batty Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Haunting #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Spooky Roundabout stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Halloween stuff is overwhelming the day 3 of the release with super adorable Batty Newton stamp set that comes with the coordinating Batty Newton Die Set. Then there’s another addition to the roundabout series of stamps with sweet and scary Spooky Roundabout stamp set that obviously, like others, coordinates with Circle Frames Die Set. And more… the matching Spiderweb Stencil is a marvellous product to use on the Halloween cards.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away new Batty Newton and Spooky Roundabout 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 features the cutest Batty Newton stamp set. I started working on Neenah Solar White paper and die cut the kitty shape plus a couple of small bats using the coordinating Batty Newton Die Set. I saved and used the negative parts of the dies inside my MISTI tool to help me with the alignment while I was making the stamping using Batty Newton stamp set and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I colored the batty Newton with copic markers and then added a few white dots and accents with a white gel pen.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: COPIC MARKERS cat YR20-YR21-YR24-YR27-E99 plus RV0000-RV02; V0000-V01-V12-V09.

The matching purple background was painted on a piece of inexpensive watercolor paper that I had on hand. I used regular watercolors and kept everything very simple and easy purposely giving to the pattern an uneven and splotchy look. I heat set the watercolor piece and then applied new Spiderweb Stencil on top with a plain white embossing paste. I let the background piece air dry and meanwhile trimmed and score an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) plus another additional slightly smaller rectangle with a circle window towards the center die cut from Circle Frames Die Set. The sentiment from the same Batty Newton stamp set was simply heat embossed on a strip of a black card stock. At this point I assembled all the elements together using foam tape for a fun dimensional look.

The Spooky Roundabout stamp set was transformed into a shaker card that still was very easy to create. To start, I stamped the main image on Neenah Solar White paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the whole piece with copic markers.

In case you’re interested, here’s the complete list of all the colors used by me on this project: COPIC MARKERS B32-B23-B39 plus colorless blender 0; Y13-Y15-Y17; C0-C2; T1-T3-T5-T7; YR04-YR07; YG01-YG67.

The card base has an extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) and was created from a light gray cardstock. Assembling the card, I adhered the colored piece directly on the card base. The shaker part is a simply trimmed additional rectangle slightly smaller than the card base where I die cut a circle window using the coordinating Circle Frames Die Set. I glued a piece of clear acetate to the back side of the circle window, popped the whole element on a foam tape and filled the shaker area with a few clear round and star shape sequins. The last finish touch gave a heat embossed sentiment placed on a 3D banner from Banner Trio Die Set.

Happy Halloween Card (ft. Purple Onion Designs)

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

Hello and welcome!!!

Today I have a very sweet and cute Halloween card to share. I went for a simple design, traditional Halloween colors and chose an adorable pumpkin trio from Purple Onion Designs.

In case you’re unfamiliar with unmounted rubber stamps and how to used them, please, check this post and new Solid Clear Stamps from POD that are meant to be used as a temporary mounting solution for unmounted rubber stamping.

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

To start, I stamped on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black Happy Pumpkins stamp, colored it with my watercolor markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around. I purposely opted for a splotchy and uneven watercolor look.

And here’s the complete list of all Tombow markers used on this project: n.055, n.133, n.177, n.847, n.925, n.946, n.947, n.991.

For the background, I inked a purple rectangle and added on top Cascading Stars through the Newton’s Nook Designs stencil with a white embossing paste. Assembling all the elements together, I popped them on a foam tape for a dimensional look and added a heat embossed sentiment from Purple Onion Designs Sweet occasions Sentiment Set along with a matching orange twine.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this cute and simple card! And as always thanks so much for stopping by!

Fun and Easy Techniques With Stencils – Heat Embossing Tips for Newton’s Nook Designs and WOW! Inspiration Week


Hello and welcome!
Newton’s Nook Designs and WOW! embossing powders  are collaborating all week long to offer you inspiration using their products together! Both design teams will be sharing fun ways to use embossing powders on your projects using WOW embossing powders paired with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps!

Boo Hoo #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamp, dies and stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m continuing playing with stencils and going to share with you today a few tips and tricks about heat embossing. I went for a Halloween themed card and so picked a wonderful Ghosts stencil from Newtons Nook Designs paired with White Puff Embossing Powder from WOW brand.
Please check the video tutorial below to see the whole card making process.

I started with a purple A2 size card base made from Simon Says Stamp Royal Purple Cardstock. I inked the card front edges with Wilted Violet and Black Soot Distress inks and let it air dry. I treated the whole card front with a EK Success Powder Tool and smooched VersaMark ink through Ghosts stencil. Next I sprinkled the ghosts pattern with White Puff Embossing Powder and zapped everything with my heat fun.

For a more playful look I added small google eyes from Darice here and there using Glossy Accents as an adhesive since it’s super strong and dries clear. The Boo Hoo sentiments come from NND Boo Hoo stamp set. I stamped a few of them with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a piece of SSS Orange Peel cardstock and heat set with WOW Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter. I used the coordinating Boo Hoo Die Set for die cutting the speech bubbles and finally popped them on a foam tape. A few clear crystal sequins finished this cute card.

Hello and welcome to the final day the Newton’s Nook Designs August release!

All the new August products will be available for purchase on Friday, August 23th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Best Witches #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Witchy Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The last day of the August release has reserved us two super fun and cute Witchy Newton and Happy Howl-oween stamp sets. Both come with the coordinating dies. Plus NND is revealing another awesome product: a frightfully sweet Ghosts stencil.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving both new stamp sets away 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 features Witchy Newton stamp and die sets. Once again I started with Neenah Solar White paper and MFT Black Hybrid ink because they work great with copic markers.

And here’re all the numbers of copic markers used on this project: cat E40-E41-E42-E43-E44; YG00-YG01-YG13-YG67; V04-V05-V06-V09-FV2; Y17-YR16-YR18; RV00-RV02; C3; 100.

Best Witches #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Witchy Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I added an additional rectangle panel on top of the white card base where were partially die cut three circles. I used one of them to stamp the sentiment from the same Witchy Newton set, the other was inked with yellow ink to emulate the Moon and the third one – with the matching yellow, orange and violet colors already used on the Witchy Newton. Finally I added a few black glittery bats die cut from Halloween Trio Die Set.

Next come super adorable dogs from Happy Howl-oween stamp set. I used the same materials as on my first card for stamping and Happy Howl-oween Die Set for the die cutting. I colored the dogs with copic markers.

As always I’m leaving you the exact colors of copic markers used here: dog YR30-E30-E31-E33-E35; dog W00-W3-W5-W7-100; YG00-YG01-YG03-YG13-YG67; V04-V05-V06-V09; YR12-YR16-YR18-YR21; Y00-Y02-Y15; R11.

Trick Or Treat #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Happy Howl-oween stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I masked and inked with Wilted Violet Oxide and Black Soot Distress inks a circle window behind the cute Halloween couple.

I also added black shiny metallic bats through Flying Bats stencil along with a few die cut elements covered with a clear shimmer pen. I loooove to work with die cut sentiments and so I decided to add one from Halloween Trio Die Set as a final element for this project.

Interactive Halloween Card Plus Video (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Bewitching Halloween Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bewitched stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!
I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog today with a fun interactive Halloween card made using a super adorable Bewitched stamps set.

Bewitching Halloween Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bewitched stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Using the coordinating Bewitched SugarCuts, I die cut some elements on Neenah Solar White paper and then stamped the coordinating images from Bewitched stamps set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink helping myself with the negative part of the dies for a perfect alignment. Next I colored all the stamps with copic markers.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors I used here: skin E0000-E01-E11-BV01-R20; cat and hair Y32-YR24-YR27; BV02-FV2; YG00-YG01-YG13; Y21-Y26; E40-E43-E47; Y02.

Bewitching Halloween Wishes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Bewitched stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

The night sky was made on piece of Distress cardstock applying Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks with an ink blending tool. The yellow undertone on the card base peeking through Star Dust SugarCut was made with Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink. Finally the Halloween scene was completed with SpokyScape SugarCut die cut from a black cardstock and a simply stamped sentiment from the same Bewitched stamps set. For the fun interactive element I popped the girl on a Mini Action Wobble Spring.

And now I’m leaving you with a video tutorial.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Tatiana
