It's Beginning To Look A SLOTH Like Christmas #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Slothy Christmas stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

I’m starting with a super adorable Slothy Christmas stamp set and a round base card! The cute sleepy guy and some presents were die cut with the coordinating dies, stamped with Memento black ink and colored with copic markers.

Here’s the complete list of all the colors: W00-W1-W3-W5; E50-E51-E53; GOO-G02-G09; RV13-RV14-RV17.

For the background I used Land Borders Die Set to cut a snow slope and Petite Snow stencil with a white embossing paste. Finally the matching fun sentiment from the same Slothy Christmas stamp set was heat embossed on a night sky portion of the circle inked with Distress inks.

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

The card featuring Happy Howl-idays stamp set turned out clean and simple. The cute puppies were die cut with the coordinating dies on a Bristol paper and stamped with VersaFine black ink. I colored them using the following water based markers:

ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH n.29 Geranium Red, n.51 Lemon Yellow, n.60 Brown, n.61 Light Brown, n.63 Ochre, n.67 Mustard, n.96 Mid Gray; TOMBOW n.885, n.977.

I masked a rectangle directly on the card base and inked it with a very light shade of blue. Next before lifting the masking paper, I added a falling snow through Petite Snow stencil and finally heat embossed the sentiment from Happy Howl-idays stamp set on a piece of a red cardstock.

The cutest sheep from Fleece Navidad stamp set has immediately stolen my heart.

I die cut a couple of the critters using the the coordinating dies, stamped with Memento black ink and colored with copic markers which complete list I’m leaving here:

T0-T1-T3-T9; E0000-E01-E02-E53; R35-RV29-R39; YG01-YG13-YG17-YG67; C00-C3.

Next I built a cute scene on my background using Frames & Flags Die Set for the window, new Forest Scene Builder Die Set for the trees, leaves and a little bird. The matching funny sentiment was simply stamped on the inked background and finally a few heat embossed snowflakes from the same Fleece Navidad stamp set added a finish touch.

The sweet couple of toads from Mistle Toad stamp set was die cut with the coordinating dies and stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a Bristol paper.

Mistle Toad #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mistle Toad stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Before proceeding to the coloring I die cut a scalloped rectangle from Framework Die Set and stamped the fireplace from Fireside Friends stamp set masking some parts before inking the stamp. And finally I proceeded with coloring using water based markers:

ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH n.29 Geranium Red, n.47 May Green, n.50 Yellow, n.61 Light Brown, n.63 Ochre, n.96 Mid Gray; TOMBOW n.126, n.885, n.899, n.947.

Mistle Toad #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Mistle Toad stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Newton’s Nook Designs Holiday Release and Giveaway – Day 3 – Holiday Stockings and Ornamental Wishes

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

All the new October products will be available for purchase on Friday, October 19th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

A Little Holiday Cheer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Ornamental Wishes stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The design of today’s reveals is totally different from the ones you saw on previous days, but not less amazing and beautiful! I can’t wait to introduce you new Holiday Stockings and Ornamental Wishes stamp sets! Holiday Stockings set coordinates perfectly with Stylish Stocking Die Set released last year! So clever and thoughtful!!! While Ornamental Wishes stamp set can be paired with stunning new Ornament Shaker Die!

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving new Holiday Stockings and Ornamental Wishes 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!


Here’s the Ornamental Wishes stamp and Ornament Shaker Die bundle in action!

A Little Holiday Cheer #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Ornamental Wishes stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

To start, I die cut two outside frames and two bases of the Ornament Shaker Die from Neenah Solar White paper and gently inked them with Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks and an ink blending tool. Next I die cut the outside frames again from the Double Sided Adhesive Foam that NND carries in their shop! I can’t recommend this foam adhesive enough for die cutting! It goes through die cutting machine like butter and keeps the perfect shape of the dies!!! I also die cut at this point again the bases using a heat resistant acetate along with a fun glittery HO-HO-HO sentiment to use inside the shaker and the ornamental tops. Before assembling the shakers I heat embossed the sentiment from Ornamental Wishes stamp set with a silver embossing powder on one of the ornamental elements and filled the inside with a few matching sequins. Assembling the whole project, I added a tone on tone snowflake pattern to the card base through Snowfall Stencil just for something little extra touch and cut by hand the second ornamental element to match the other.

My second card turned out as a traditional Christmas pattern with so traditional red, green and white colors!

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

Working on this project, I randomly stamped some Holiday Stockings with Memento black ink since it’s copic friendly and made some super simple coloring without any shading since I want to create a sort of holiday pattern paper. I used only three copic markers: R24, YG25 and T1, but you can definitely use any color medium you have on hand for this card.

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

The sentiment from the same Holiday Stockings set was heat embossed on a fish-tail banner die cut using Frames & Flags Die Set. And finally a few matching sequins along with a coat of Clear Wink Of Stella Shimmer pen finished this simple, but colorful card.

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Happy Friday!

I’m so excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today and give you a fun idea on how you can stretch your holiday stamps and dies! Curious?

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

This year I decided to make a stamp focus card series and invite you to get another look on the crafty products you already have in your stash or bring more ideas on the same stamp or die set so that you can decide if you really want to get it! Today I would like to reuse holiday stuff and reinterpret it in a different way! And so I’m starting with a super adorable Newton’s Christmas Cuddles set from NND. This set is meant to be a holiday one, but the cute images are so versatile that you can easily cover many other occasions. I played with the lovely couple of kitties and transformed them into a love or Valentine’s Day card.

Love #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The kitties were stamped on a watercolor paper with a black waterproof ink, colored with regular watercolors and finally fussy cut right against the stamp lines. Then I built a shaker element reusing a Snow Globe Shaker Die Set and filling it with a tiny die-cut hearts from Darling Hearts Die Set, sparkling sequins and beads because I loved the idea of falling hearts on the love card. And since I already had Darling Hearts Die Set on my desk, I die-cut the work “love” from a bright pink cardstock and used it as the sentiment.

That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day! And, please, let me know if you’re interested to see more posts from my Stamp Focus Card Series!!!

Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge December 2017

'Tis The Season #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winter Village Digital Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Friday!

It’s time to play again with the Monthly Social Media Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! And here’s another inspirational project based on the beautiful December mood board!

Today’s card turned out almost one layer. I played with the gorgeous Winter Village Digital Stamp Set, printed a simple frosty scene on a laser printer and just enjoyed coloring it with copic markers. In case you’re interested, please, check all the exact copic numbers I used here at the bottom of this post.

'Tis The Season #handmadecard by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Winter Village Digital Stamp Set by Craftin Desert Divas

Once finished with coloring, I added a sentiment from Holiday Sweaters stamp set stamping it directly on my panel with a black ink. And finally added a frosty feeling applying first Multi Medium Matte adhesive and then sprinkled on top a clear glitter. I set everything aside and let air dry before shaking off the excess and gluing the colored scene to the regular A2 size card base.

Here Comes Santa Paws Card (ft. Newton’s Nook Designs)

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!
