Watercolor Autumn Leaves Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

Sending Prayers #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Autumn Leaves Die set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Hello and welcome!

I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a simple autumn feeling card!

Today’s card was really easy to make. To start, I took a piece of a cold pressed watercolor paper since it has more texture compared to a hot pressed version and paint a sort of splotchy and uneven background, creating a green, a red and yellowish areas. I flicked some colorful droplets on top along with white and gold ones to bring more interest to the pattern. I let the paper air dry and then die cut some leaves using Autumn Leaves Die Set.

An extended A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base was made from a kraft cardstock. I trimmed and positioned on top another slightly smaller panel made from the watercolor paper where I wrapped and tied a bow using a matching kraft twine. I arranged my watercolor leaves and glued them directly on the background. Finally I added a heat embossed sentiment from Heartfelt Essentials stamp set. If you have troubles with heat embossing, I highly recommend you to prep the paper with a generous coat of Powder Tool to prevent the embossing powder from sticking to your paper where you don’t want it. Then use VersaMark Clear Sticky ink since this ink stays wet for a while and allows to achieve a perfect impression. A few sequins finished this simple watercolor card.

The project, I created today, is very easy to recreate. To start, I stamped on Strathmore Bristol paper with waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink the adorable Zoey (Bunny Reading), the Lantern String, and a piece of Grassy Shore stamp. I colored all the stamped images with water based Tombow markers, making the blending with the small waterbrush from Pentel. Next I fussy cut all the elements with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around and proceeded with the background.

I took a piece of inexpensive Bristol paper that I had in my stash since this type of paper has a smooth surface that makes the ink blending very easy and inked the sky through the edge of Newton’s Nook Designs Clouds stencil with Spun Sugar, Seedless Preserves and Wilted Violet Distress inks using the blending brushes. Then I flicked a few tiny droplets of a shimmer spray and some white splotches using a plain white gouache. An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was created from Neenah Solar White paper along with the additional slightly smaller faux stitched rectangle with the die cut circle window in the center. Assembling all the elements together, I glued the sky directly to the card base and them popped the additional white rectangle on top using a foam tape for a bit of dimension. Then I arranged the colored elements and finished with the sentiment stamped from Everyday Blurbs set.

And here’s the complete list of all the markers used by me on this project: N79, 055, 173, 177, 452, 676, 723.

Purple Onion Designs New Under The Sea & It’s A Pirate’s Life Collections By Shari Bresciani

Ahoy There! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

I’m keeping sharing more cards featuring new fantastic Under The Sea and It’s A Pirate’s Life Collections from Purple Onion Designs illustrated by super talented Shari Bresciani!

 

SALE ALLERT! Don’t miss a chance to grab your favorite stamps from Purple Onion Designs at a discounted price! The anniversary sale will end on Monday, August 24th. All stamps will be 25% off (with a few exclusions: Together Stamp Set & Sandy Allnock’s class stamp bundles).

Ahoy There! #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Today I came out with a clean and simple design featuring another adorable Francois (Pirate Cat in Boat) stamp from It’s A Pirate’s Life collection. This time I switched to Neenah Solar White paper and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To start, I stamped Francois (Pirate Cat in Boat), one of the flags from Sail & Flags set, the palm tree from Tropical Island background stamp and a bottle with a message from Pirate Possessions set. I colored all the elements with copic markers and then fussy cut with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around.

An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was created from the same Neenah Solar White paper. I die cut a square mask from a masking paper using Newton’s Nook Designs Frames Squared Die Set, applied the negative part of the mask directly on the card base to help me ink inside the light blue sky using Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the blending brush. I also added two rows of waves, inking them from the edge of Newton’s Nook Designs Waves & Splashes Stencil using Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink. At this point I removed the mask and simply stamped the matching sentiment from Pirate-ments Set directly on the card front. Finally I popped the colored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few clear sparkling sequins.

In case you’re interested, I’m leaving you all the exact numbers of copic markers used here: cat Y31-YR24-YR27; flag RV13-RV19-RV21-RV25; hat B0000-B21-B24-B26-B69; fish Y00-Y11-Y13; palm E30-E31-E33-E35 plus G20-YG11; T0-T1.

My Deepest Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Today I watercolored a lovely pirate scene using a big background stamp called Tropical Island, the adorable Felix (Pirate Cat with Flag), the cutest Chimp along with a few matching accessories: Treasure Chest, Wood Barrel, Pirate Possessions. Since I used regular watercolors from my customised watercolor palette on this project, I chose a hot pressed Extra White Watercolor paper from Fabriano brand and VersaFine Onyx Black since it allows to achieve easily a perfect impression. Once colored, the critters and the accessories were fussy cut with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around.

An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was created from a kraft cardstock. I arranged on top all the colored elements with a bit of dimension and finished with a matching heat embossed sentiment from Pirate-ments Set. Easy!!! Right?!

Purple Onion Designs New Under The Sea & It’s a Pirate’s Life Collections By Shari Bresciani

My Deepest Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

Hello and welcome!!!

It’s time for new stunning goodies from Purple Onion Designs! I’m so excited to introduce you two new fantastic Under The Sea and It’s a Pirate’s Life Collections of rubber stamps both illustrated by super talented Shari Bresciani!

SALE ALLERT! Don’t miss a chance to grab your favorite stamps from Purple Onion Designs at a discounted price! The anniversary sale will end on Monday, August 24th. All stamps will be 25% off (with a few exclusions: Together Stamp Set & Sandy Allnock’s class stamp bundles).

My Deepest Thanks #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - stamps by Purple Onion Designs #purpleoniondesigns

My first card turned out very cheerful and bright! I mixed and matched lots of different stamps from new Under The Sea Collection. I worked on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. I stamped, heat set and fussy cut with my sharp small scissors all the elements I needed for the scene, leaving a little white edge around.

Here’s the complete list of all the stamps used on this project:
Octopus
Saltwater Fish Set
Tropical Fish Set (Stripes & Spikes)
Sea Horse
Seashells & Starfish
Rocks, Seaweed & Coral
Seaweed, Tubes & Stripe Coral Set
Branch Coral Set
Sea-timents (sentiment) Set

I colored all the stamps with Tombow markers and a small waterbrush from Pentel. The “sea water” rectangle was simply watercolored on a piece of an inexpensive watercolor paper that I have on hands. I use regular watercolors for this element and purposely kept the watercoloring very splotchy and uneven for a fun effect. The sentiment from  Sea-timents Set was heat embossed on a narrow strip of a black cardstock. Finally I could arrange all the elements on a faux dotted panel die cut from SugarPea Designs Card Front Element Builder II set along with a small slightly offset rectangle window. A few clear droplets gave a finish touch to this project.

As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the markers used here: TOMBOW N55, 025, 133, 493, 725, 665, 905, 933.
